2021 Fantasy Football Week 11 PPR Rankings

Folks, we’ve made it to Week 11! We’re down to just two teams having bye weeks, which means that you’ll have more available players to start or sit. The best resource to make those tough decisions? Well, I am glad you asked; my Week 11 PPR Rankings! Every week, I’ll be providing you with my personal rankings for every position, excluding defense and kicker, who will be ranked later in the week. Who’s positioned to do some damage this week? Who might not be the ideal player to start this week? We’ll answer all of that in the paragraphs ahead.

Week 11 Positional Notes


  • Will Kyler Murray be back this week? The star quarterback has now missed the past two games due to a sprained ankle, and it’s unclear if he’ll play this week. Even if he does, expect less rushing production than normal.
  • Without star running back Derrick Henry, the Titans have passed the ball at a much higher frequency. Ryan Tannehill, with that in mind, is in a great position to succeed against the Texans this week. He’s a top-10 quarterback in my Week 11 PPR rankings.
  • The same goes for Tua Tagovailoa, who’ll face the Jets as part of a fast-paced, pass-heavy Dolphins offense.
  • I’m worried about Russell Wilson, but not because of his poor performance coming back from injury against the Packers. Before getting injured, he was a part of an offense with limited passing volume, and nothing from this past week suggests that will change. It might time to no longer consider him a “must start” regardless of the matchup.
  • With over 20 PFF expected fantasy points over his past two games, it’s clear Justin Fields is becoming the starting-worthy fantasy quarterback we’ve been waiting for him to be. He’s now had eight+ rush attempts in three straight games, and I’m excited to see if that streak continues this week.
  • What will Cam Newton provide the Panthers with this week? I expect some rushing production and touchdown upside, though I wouldn’t consider him someone to start this week, even against Washington.
  • Let’s slow down on Mac Jones. The rookie, who is PFF’s fifth-highest graded quarterback, has been marvelous this year. However, he’s doing so in a game manager role, which is why he’s had under 25 pass attempts in three of his past five games, and under 13.5 PFF expected fantasy points in back-to-back games. Without enough passing volume or rushing production, he just isn’t translating his strong “real-life” production into fantasy points. That’s why he ranks so low in my Week 11 PPR Rankings

Running Back

  • It’s time to give Christian McCaffrey back his throne as the top player in fantasy football. That’s clear in my Week 11 PPR Rankings and is the result of being an absolute cheat code in fantasy. Despite having three touchdown opportunities wasted, he still ended up with over 26 fantasy points due to having 10 receptions, and that type of production should continue as such a receiving threat. As always, receptions are an unstoppable force in PPR formats.
  • With Aaron Jones out for the next few weeks, AJ Dillon takes his place. Aligned with my Week 11 PPR Rankings, consider him a low-end RB1 while Jones is out.
  • Speaking of running backs filling in for the starter, Rhamondre Stevenson was spectacular filling in for Damien Harris in New England. With a great matchup against the Falcons, his talent, rushing volume, and receiving abilities make him a top-15 option this week if Harris doesn’t play.
  • Three notable running backs coming back from injury: Saquon Barkley, Chris Carson, and Clyde Edwards-Helaire. All could be in a committee situation this week, which is why they rank lower than normal, but you should still be comfortable starting all of them.
  • With Zach Wilson coming back to replace Mike White as the Jets’ starting quarterbacks, it’s likely we see fewer targets for the running backs. That’s bad news for Michael Carter, especially with Tevin Coleman making this a three-back committee again.
  • D’Onta Foreman appears to be the lead back in Tennessee and faces the Texans this week. Thus, he’s a worthy FLEX option this week.
  • Antonio Gibson, with over 20 carries, was back to being Washington’s lead back in Week 10. That’s great news for his fantasy outlook moving forward.
  • With Cordarrelle Patterson likely to miss some time, Mike Davis should be the lead back one again. He’s not someone many people will want to start, yet he has a high enough floor to start as a FLEX. Wayne Gallman’s involvement in the team’s offense last week mainly came when the starters were pulled out of the game.

Wide Receivers

  • Although AJ Brown busted last week, he’s still the only elite option for a Titans offense that is passing more frequently and faces the Texans this week. That’s why he’s a top-five receiver in my Week 11 PPR Rankings.
  • Offensive coordinator Klint Kubiak said the Vikings would get Justin Jefferson more involved, and that’s exactly what they did with 11 targets and 143 receiving yards. Expect them to continue to make it an emphasis to get him the football this week.
  • Amari Cooper has been playing injured, and it’s showing with his lack of production in an explosive Cowboys offense. The gap between him and CeeDee Lamb continues to grow in Dallas.
  • Here are De’Vonta Smith’s target shares over the past four weeks: 32%, 20%, 37.5%, 27.2%. If the Eagles pass more this week against a tough Saints run defense, Smith could easily finish as a top-20 receiver this week. He’s already been a top-ten receiver in back-to-back weeks.
  • Stock up on the Bears receivers, who are benefitting from more passing volume. Allen Robinson and Darnell Mooney might not be players you start this week unless you have to, but they have notable upside in softer matchups (Lions Week 12) moving forward.
  • After playing just nine snaps due to a rib injury, you’ll want to monitor Cole Beasley’s status this week. If he can’t play, Gabriel Davis will see more work in the passing game, though the main effect might be strong performances for Stefon Diggs and Emmanuel Sanders.
  • With Sterling Shepard, Kenny Golladay, and Ka’Darius Toney all healthy this week in Tampa Bay, I’m keeping a close eye on the Giants’ receiving corps. This will be our best look at how their target shares will shape up in a fully healthy offense.
  • Will DeAndre Hopkins be back this week? If not, Christian Kirk rises into high-end WR3/low-end WR2 territory in a hurry.
  • It will be interesting to see how the Panthers’ receivers fare with Cam Newton in the lineup. This could be great news for DJ Moore, while I’m higher on Robby Anderson than most this week.

Tight End

  • Darren Waller’s utilization suggests a “boom game” is coming, but we’re left still waiting for it.
  • Kyle Pitts could see more targets down the field with Cordarrelle Patterson injured, but the Patriots will be focused on taking him out of the game. This will be a fun chess match to follow on Thursday Night Football.
  • TJ Hockenson and Mike Gesicki have shown enough for us to look at their zero-point showings in Week 10 as a fluke.
  • Stock down on Daulton Schultz, who is now the fourth option in the Cowboys’ passing attack with Michael Gallup back. I wouldn’t start him this week unless you have no better option.
  • Pat Freiermuth dominated the snaps at tight end even with Eric Ebron back for the Steelers, meaning he’s a starting player for the rest of the year.
  • Against the Saints’ strong run defense, the Eagles should pass the ball more, which is great news for Dallas Goedert. With a 26.4% target share over his past three games, he’s a focal part of the offense with Zach Ertz out of the picture.
  • Adam Trautman is a viable streaming option facing a Philadelphia defense that is allowing the most fantasy points to tight ends.
