The Week 11 wide receiver rankings are here help you make tough decisions this week. Whether it is deciding which of your options to start with or who you should be looking to pick up this week to cover your byes and injuries. Our team will be here the rest of the year ranking the offensive positions, defensive positions and team defense to try and help you win your fantasy football leagues. Last week, Amendola and Ross finished as WR3/Flex plays while Humphries (and the rest of TB) took a week off from scoring.
Below the table, I’ll be highlighting some pick ups for this week (if they are still available) and sneaky-starts for your bye-week needs.
Keke Coutee, HOU @ WAS (27%)
Disclaimer: this assumes he is healthy and playing as the early-week reports suggest. Do not be afraid of Demaryius Thomas’ presence here. This is an aerial attack team that just lost their big deep threat. Houston was finding creative ways to get Coutee the ball because of his speed an elusiveness. I not only expect him to step up and catch some more balls in Fuller’s absence, but he’s likely to get all those deep balls that Watson excels at throwing. I’m fine if you want to hold off a week before playing him, but I think he could produce this week and could easily be a WR3 ROS – with being a FLEX as his floor.

Maurice Harris, WAS vs. HOU (34%)
This guy came out of nowhere… and I love it! I’ve watched a lot of Harris the past two weeks and he is a good football player. That doesn’t always translate to fantasy value, but in this scenario he is translating into an Amendola-type fantasy player. We all know Alex Smith isn’t taking shots down the field and Harris is his safety net. He’s caught 15/17 targets the past two weeks and as long as he’s getting 5+ targets a game, he should turn that into a minimum of 10 pts/gm in PPR leagues. He’s likely not going to win you a week but if you have good players around him he’ll surely help your team.
Anthony Miller, CHI vs. MIN (34%)
This one is tough for me because of 3 main reasons: 1) the Vikings give up the 4th fewest points to WR’s this season, 2) he’s had 3 straight good games leading me to believe regression may be coming, and 3) the Bears put up great numbers offensively but predicting the big winner each week can be tough. Now that we’ve gotten the negatives out of the way, let’s talk about why Miller is the man for the job. First and foremost, this game is going to be a shootout. Vegas has the total set at 45 (which I believe is low) and Minnesota hasn’t been able to stop any decent offense this year. The Rams put up 38 against them, the Packers scored 29, and the Saints dropped a 30-bomb. The Bears may not be as elite as those 3 yet, but they are adjacent in the next echelon this season. The points will be there in this game, it’s just a matter of if Miller gets his or not. With Allen Robinson healthy, he’s going to command attention from this defense that is beatable over the middle and deep.
Danny Amendola, BYE (42%) – stash if you have the room
*Week 11 Update*: Amendola is still under-owned. He actually went from 48% ->42%. I can’t in good consciousness remove him from this list at <50% owned. The dude produces and is a great bye-week fill in and a great consistent performer for 12-16 team leagues.
*Week 10 Update*: Amendola is still under-owned. He’s a WR3/Flex play in almost any league 10-team or greater. Go snag him and feel comfortable pulling in at least 7-8 points.
*Week 9 Update*: Amendola’s ownership went up from 20% -> 47% which is still too low. Brock loves his safety blanket over the middle and will continue to use him. Don’t be afraid of the Parker breakout potential. Danny is here to stay with consistent points in your WR3/FLEX spot.
Brock-tober continues and Danny just keeps getting better. These rankings are centered around PPR leagues so keep that in mind, as Amendola may be more TD-dependent in regular leagues which isn’t his specialty. He’s a chain-mover and a trusted target for his QB and this game projects as high-scoring. He’s a nice bye-week fill-in or FLEX play this week.
