What an ugly weekend it was for fantasy owners fighting for a playoff spot, with the losers list looking more like a Pro Bowl roster. On the other side of the coin, the winners list is littered with fantasy bench players who were likely not even in the starting line-up.
As we enter Week 11 of the NFL season, fantasy owners are making their final push for a playoff spot. Every game counts from here on out, and it is even more important now than ever before for the right decisions to be made.
With so many injuries coming in the past few games, fantasy owners are struggling to find adequate replacements on an already picked clean waiver wire. The only real option is to turn to trades, but we already know that trades are hard to pull off because most owners only accept a trade if they feel they are clearly winning in the deal.
You don’t need me to tell you to start Andy Dalton, Hill, A.J. Green, Tyler Eifert, the Bengals defense, or to play Giovani Bernard in the flex in PPR leagues, so I’m not going to waste space below doing it. If you own a Bengals player, this will be a good week to play them!
Week 7 was filled with QB/WR combo winners who came through just in the nick of time. Philip Rivers & Danny Woodhead, Brian Hoyer & Nate Washington, and Teddy Bridgewater & Stefon Diggs all came up big with the game out of hand.
