Target Influx: 3 NFL Players Ready for Fantasy Football Breakouts in Week 11

As a converted wide receiver from Arkansas State, J.D. McKissic possesses the hands and route running ability to serve as a formidable satellite back in Seattle’s offense. McKissic was highly productive during his time at Arkansas State, posting 103 receptions for 1,022 yards and five touchdowns.

With elite workout metrics across the board, Bruce Ellington possesses a 4.45 40-yard dash time (79th-percentile), a 127.2 Burst Score (81st-percentile) and a 10.64 Agility Score (97th-percentile). Ellington now looks to capitalize on an ideal cornerback matchup in a game which will see no regression in pass attempts.

6 Contrarian starts for fantasy football week 11

Flying under the radar due to the impending return of Danny Woodhead, Alex Collins has found himself in a good situation this week. Collins burst onto the scene in week eight with a 143 yard performance against the Dolphins, and could be in line for a similar kind of day against the Packers.

After finishing as a top 15 fantasy running back for the first three weeks of his career, Tarik Cohen has cracked the top 30 in just one week since. Cohen has a great opportunity to return to relevance this week against Detroit.

Junk Time: When are bad match-ups actually good match-ups?

Sometimes the worst match-ups can turn into the best match-ups for fantasy football. Here are five wide receivers to look for as junk time legends in the coming weeks.

If there is one team in the NFL that is certain to be throwing the ball in the second half of games due to being behind, it’s the Cleveland Browns. Corey Coleman has very little risk of falling victim to the Browns’ running the ball more than throwing.

These 3 RBs are top Week 11 fantasy football waiver wire adds

The always enigmatic Patriots backfield began to take a more defined shape against Denver this past week. After missing most of the first half of the season with a rib contusion, Rex Burkhead shined in a big way for New England.

One of the 2017 NFL Draft’s most talked about prospects is finally rounding into shape. After injuries sidelined him for almost the entire first half of the season, Corey Davis is finally ready to contribute.

You must consider these fantasy football starts for week 10

Orleans Darkwa is one of the six contrarian fantasy football starts in week 10 based on advanced stats, metrics, and analytics player profiles. The best way for the Giant’s to pick up their second win of the season this week is for them to copy the formula that got them their first win: heavy doses of Darkwa.

Christian McCaffrey’s proficiency at catching the football is becoming too great to ignore. Only 9 games into career, and he’s already become arguably the best receiving back in the league. Expect the electric rookie to keep rolling against the Dolphins this week.

These 2 Rookies Are Ideal Fantasy Football Breakout Candidates For Week 10

Corey Davis is back after a five game hiatus, and saw a season-high 77.9-percent Snap Share in his Week 9 return against the Ravens, hauling in two receptions on five targets for 28 yards and no touchdowns.

The Broncos could be at risk for giving up another high scoring performance, and Devontae Booker has a chance to capitalize in Week 10 and complete the process of relegating C.J. Anderson once an for all.

Who are the best players to target at the fantasy football trade deadline?

JuJu Smith-Schuster happens to be one of the most efficient wide receivers in all of football, posting an extremely impressive +48.4 Production Premium (No. 3). He also quietly has a 132.2 QB Rating When Targeted (No. 4).

Even with Deshaun Watson elevating his fantasy upside, there were a few glaring holes in Will Fuller’s game. Fuller has only a 50-percent Catch Rate (No. 82) with a 70-percent Catchable Target Rate. He also has a meager 9.9-percent Hog Rate (No. 80). As a result, his production in PPR leagues will fade dramatically.

Fantasy Football Waiver Wire: Which Injured Players Will Make a Comeback?

The Tampa Bay Buccaneers’ awful start to the season only got worse after Mike Evans was hit with a one-game suspension. The one good thing to come of this is that it has opened the door in Tampa for an athletic freak, Chris Godwin.

One of the best satellite backs in the league is almost healthy. After injuring his hamstring in the opening drive of the season, Danny Woodhead is set up to make his return in Week 11 after the Ravens bye week.

Rise of the Satellite Back-Plus: Alvin Kamara & Christian McCaffrey

The Saints have targeted running backs with 140-plus pass attempt each year since 2011. Moreover, the Saints have finished top-5 in RB receptions each season since Drew Brees arrived in New Orleans and have an astounding 400 more RB targets than the next team during that span.

Alvin Kamara may be Darren Sproles’ heir in New Orleans, but Christian McCaffrey, is on a Sprolesian pace with 72 targets through nine weeks. Yet, Kamara is a top-10 PPR back, not McCaffrey, despite a lower opportunity share.

Carlos Hyde is a strong buy in fantasy football leagues

Jimmy Garoppolo has the keys to unlock Carlos Hyde’s potential. In a small NFL sample, Garoppolo was outstanding filling in for Tom Brady. He has the ability to sustain drives, elevate Hyde’s red zone touches, and elevate all skill position players in San Francisco.

Carlos Hyde is achieving a fantasy RB1 season while playing in the worst possible situation for a running back. San Francisco’s 60.5 run blocking efficiency grade on PlayerProfiler ranks outside the top-20 in the NFL.
