Week 11 Sleepers NFL

Week 11 Sleepers NFL Fantasy Football

Week 11 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 11 Sleepers NFL Fantasy Football options


Last Week of Byes- Week 11- CLEV-NO- NYG- PITT


Quarterback Sleepers Week 11


SEA Russell Wilson ( vs SF )-

Another team playing at home vs one of the worst passing defenses in the NFL. Wilson hasn’t done much for fantasy football owners this season….perhaps he makes up for it in Week 11

 JACK B Bortles (vs TENN )–

Although the Titan’s defense is one of the better teams vs the pass, Bortles has proven to be match up proof by passing for at least 2 TDs in every game since Week 4

Deep league Sleeper-Teddy Bridgewater (vs GB)–

DET QB M Stafford had a pretty good game in Week 10 at Green Bay because the Packers are not playing well. Green Bay has to be worried about RB A Peterson after his 203 rushing yards and 1 TD performance Week 10. IF GB shifts most of their attention to stopping AP, Bridgewater will have good opportunities


Running Back Sleepers Week 11


Sleeper- Darren Sproles (vs TB)-

The Eagles have mixed in RB Murray and RB Ryan Matthews all season. If RB Ryan Matthews (still in concussion protocol) sits out Week 11, Sproles role should increase significantly

TENN Dexter McClusterer ( at JACK)-

McCluster scored on the Titan’s only TD scoring drive in Week 10, with a 25 yard dash to the endzone. With the receiving corps in Tennessee banged up, McCluster is a duel threat Week 11 as a runner and receiver. The Jaguars have the 30th ranked defense


Wide Receiver Sleepers Week 11


NE Brandon LaFell ( vs BUFF)-

WR Danny Amendola was the top Week 11 Waiver Wire pick up, but fantasy football owners should not forget about Lafell, who will share in the targets that injured WR Edleman would have gotten

ATL Leonard Hankerson (vs IND)-

Before going out with an injury Week 6, Hankerson was a favorite target for QB Matt Ryan. In the first 4 games of the season, Hankerson had 17 receptions for 241 yards and2 TDs

DET Golden Tate (vs OAK)-

This match up vs the bad pass defense of Oakland is perfect for QB Stafford and WR Golden Tate to build on the success they had in Week 11 beating Green Bay

Deep PPR League Sleeper-CHI Marquess Wilson (vs DEN)–

WR Alshon Jeffery was “limited” in practice on Wednesday and can expect another questionable tag this week. I serious doubt that Wilson gets a TD reception playing the Broncos Week 11, but he should be targeted a ton and helpful to fantasy football owners in PPR leagues


Tight End Sleepers Week 11


IND C Fleener ( at ATL)-

A new quarterback’s best friend is a tight end that he can look for when he’s pressured- When QB M Hasselbeck took over in Week 4, Fleener had 9 receptions for 83 yards and 1 TD

ATL J Tamme (vs IND)-

43 targets/ 30 receptions and 1 TD from QB Matt Ryan since Week 5- The Colts are the 9th worst team at defending the tight end position. One thing that does hurt TE Tamme’s chances of a nice Week 11 Sleeper is the return of WR Leonard Hankerson

DET Eric Ebron (vs OAK)-

The Raiders have had trouble covering TEs all season, and have given up the most TDs to opposing TES…..10
