Week 11 Byes: Atlanta, Denver, NY Jets and San Diego.

Particularly in the larger 12-14 team fantasy football leagues, these four teams on a “Bye Week” may have your options to Start and Sit limited heading into Week 11. You also may be dealing with some fantasy football injury or suspensions concerns in your line ups (such as NE TE Rob Gronkowski, HOU WR Will Fuller or CHI WR Alshon Jeffery). Regardless of the league, the waiver wire has likely been picked over. Fantasy sleepers are NFL players who may exceed their statistical expectations, and may be available and options for your fantasy football team roster this week.

Each week Utter-Fantasy tries to find the sleepers which may be available for you, leading up to the NFL Week 11 regular season game. Here are a few player suggestions that may still be available in your fantasy football league.

 

Week 11 Sleepers Fantasy Football

 

QB Week 11 Sleepers Fantasy Football

CLEV QB Cody Kessler ( vs PITT )- HC Hue Jackson said Cody Kessler “is the quarterback” and the Steller’s secondary is actually pretty bad this season.

BUFF QB Tyrod Taylor ( at CINN )- QB Taylor doesn’t make a lot of mistakes and the Bengals are 20th vs the pass, 20th vs the run.

BALT QB Joe Flacco ( at DAL)- The Cowboys are 25th worst team vs the pass.

Deep League Desperate Consideration: KC QB Alex Smith ( vs JACK )-

 

RB Week 11 Sleepers Fantasy Football

DET RB Theo Riddick ( vs JACK )- RB Riddick is back from injuries, and due for a big load vs a weak Jacksonville defense.

OAK RB Jalen Richard ( vs HOU)- Rested from a Week 10 Bye, Richard had 8 carries for 62 yards and caught 2/3 passes for 10 yards in Oakland’s Week 9 win over Denver.

JACK RB C Ivory ( at DET )- Tough to trust any Jacksonville running back, but the Lions are the worst defense in the NFL.

BALT RB Kenneth Dixon ( at DAL)- RB Dixon will get more carries this week against the Cowboys following his strong performance Week 10.

 

WR Week 11 Sleepers Fantasy Football

OAK WR WR Seth Roberts ( vs HOU )- Averaging 5+ targets per game and has 4 TDds on the season so far. WR A Cooper is less than 100%.

CHI WR Eddie Royal ( ay NYG)- Although Royal (toe) was limited in Thursday’s practice, he will suit up for Week 11. With WR A Jeffery on suspension, Royal will get targets.

KC WR Tyreek Hill ( vs TB )- WR Jeremy Maclin (groin) has been ruled out for Week 11. Expect Tyreek Hill to see the biggest bump in playing time in three-receiver sets alongside Albert Wilson and Chris Conley.

JACK WR Marqise Lee (at KC )- 14 targets over the past 2 games.

NYG WR Sterling Shepard ( vs CHI )- Getting more involved in the Giant’s offense every week.

MINN WR Adam Thielen ( vs ARI)- ESPN’s Britt McHenry was told by a Vikings coach that WR Adam Thielen will be “targeted a lot” Week 11 against the Cardinals. Tough match up.

 

TE Week 11 Sleepers Fantasy Football

PITT TE Jesse James ( at CLEV )- The Browns have allowed 9 receiving TDs to opposing tight ends…most in the NFL.

SF TE Vance McDonald ( vs NE )- One of the few decent weapons on the SF offense. TE McDonald caught 4/6 targets for 50 yards in the 49ers’ Week 10 loss to the Cardinals..

BALT TE Dennis Pitta ( at DAL)- The Cowboys are the 8th worst team defending opposing tight ends, and the ravens will likely be trailing for most of this game.

Week 11 Fantasy Football DEF Sleepers

PITT ( at CLEV )- Any defense vs the Browns.

OAK ( vs HOU)- The Raiders are the 5th worst defense in the NFL, but this is great match up at home.

Week 10 Sleepers NFL Fantasy Football

Week 10 Sleepers 2015 by Utter-Fantasy Writer & Illustrator Doug Bowles

There is only 4 NFL teams on a Bye Week 10, but fantasy owners especially in deep leagues with players from ATL, SD and IND, may be scrambling for one week replacements. Here are a few Week 10 Sleepers NFL Fantasy Football options

Bye Week 10- ATL- IND- SD- SF

Quarterback Sleepers Week 10

WASH Kirk Cousins ( vs N.O. )-

This is match up Capt. Kirk has been waiting for. If you can’t put up nice stats at home vs the leagues WORST passing DEF, then you don’t belong in the NFL. I hope the Academy recognizes Rob Ryan in February for the best performance of acting like a DEF Coordinator

PITT Landry Jones (vs CLEV )–

If you are missing ATL QB M Ryan, SD Rivers  or IND A Luck, you could do worst than L Jones. He’s only thrown 2 picks in the 3 games that he’s played in, he has the best WR in the game and is playing CLEV

 

Running Back Sleepers Week 10

WASH Matt Jones (vs N.O.)-

Jones had 11 carries Week 9 vs RB A Morris’ 4 carries. Jones did fumble in the 3rd qtr Week 9, but WASH can ill-afford to punish the more talented RB for it, because the NFC East Division is anyone’s to win

MIA Jay Ajayi (at PHIL)-

Interim HC Dan Campbell said rookie RB Jay Ajayi has “earned more carries” after his impressive Week 9 debut against the Bills, 5 rushes for 41 yards

OAK Roy Helu (vs MINN)-

This is only in the event that RB Latavius Murray misses Week 10 due to “concussion protocol”. Murray did not practice Wednesday and his status for Week 10 is questionable

 

Wide Receiver Sleepers Week 10

BALT Kamar Aiken (vs JACK)-

WR Steve Smith’s season ending injury Week 8 puts WR Aiken into the #1 WR spot in BALT. Off Week 9 on a Bye Week. Don’t forget about him for fantasy football, this #1 WR in BALT is only owned in 4% of Yahoo Leagues

HOU Nate Washington (at CINN)-

QB B Hoyer is going to have throw a ton to keep up with the high scoring CINN offense. In the 2 games Washington played before the Week 9 HOU Bye, he had 201 yards a 3 TDs. Even w/ WR Cecil Shorts returning soon, Washington is sure-handed and QB B Hoyer likes throwing to him

DAL Cole Beasley (vs TB)–

TE Jason Witten was QB Romo’s safety valve, and WR Beasley is QB Cassel’s. 9 catches/ 112 yards and 2 TDs Week 9

CAR D Funchess ( at TENN)-

Has this rookie finally decided to show up for the 2015 NFL season? 3-of-4 targets for 71 yards and a touchdown in Carolina’s Week 9 win over the Packers is a nice sign that he may have but not a guarantee ( he’s had 6 other games where he has done nothing)

Deeper Leagues- CHI Marquess Wilson (at STL)–

Wilson got the start Week 9 as the No. 2 receiver in place of an injured Eddie Royal (knee) and will again Week 10 but faces a tough STL Defense Week 10

Deeper Leagues- JACK Bryan Walters (at

BALT)– It could be close to game time before we know if WR A Hurns (foot) is able to play Week 10. IF he can’t,  wide receiver sleeper Bryan Walters secured five of seven targets for 54 yards and 1 TD in Week 9

 

Tight End Sleepers Week 10

GB Richard Rodgers ( vs DET)-

9 targets/ 19 yards and 2 TDs Week 9

DET Eric Ebron (at GB)-

Week 7 Ebron was targeted 5 times for 89 yards and 1 TD reception. The Packers are near the bottom at defending opposing TEs
