The bye week of death is behind us. AJ Brown, Tyreek Hill, Jaylen Waddle, and DeVonta Smith will be back in lineups for Week 11. Now, there are receivers such as Michael Pittman Jr, Drake London, and Chris Olave who are on a bye in Week 11. These receivers have been up and down all season, but demand a nice dose of targets in their offenses. With that being said, below, I highlight four wide receiver sleepers and streamers, with three of them making numerous appearances throughout recent weeks. With great match-ups, comes great responsibility. Uncle Ben taught me that. Here are my favorite Week 11 Wide Receiver Sleepers and Streamers.
Week 11 Wide Receiver Sleepers and Streamers
Wide Receiver Streamers
Zay Flowers vs. Cincinnati Bengals
It has been some time since Zay Flowers has appeared on sleepers and streamers but here he is. Flowers gets a primetime match-up in a divisional game against the Cincinnati Bengals. The Bengals just allowed Tank Dell and Noah Brown to each eclipse 100 receiving yards.
Now, the former MVP Lamar Jackson has a chance to make up for his lackluster Week 10 performance in a loss to the Cleveland Browns. Flowers had a WR27 finish in Week 10, his best since Week 7. With that being said, Flowers will see the Tank Dell roll against the Bengals and the Ravens need to maximize his speed and craftiness in the open field. Stream Zay Flowers if you need the flex spot with byes and a weak waiver wire for Week 11.
Not much else to say besides that Jaxon Smith-Njigba is hitting the correct strides as the second half of the season has commenced. In the first six weeks of the season, Smith-Njigba did not finish higher than WR45. From Week 7 to Week 10, Smith-Njigba has finished as the WR17, WR35, WR24, and WR37. Safe to say that Smith-Njigba had a slow start to his rookie season. Also, people are too caught up on what Ja’Marr Chase and Justin Jefferson did in their rookie seasons. Not every rookie is them and that is no disrespect towards Smith-Njigba.
With a higher snap share % than the first half of the season, Smith-Njigba is slowly reminding people who he was pre-draft. Start him against the Rams in what should be a good game with each time scoring over 20 points.
Wide Receiver Sleepers
Noah Brown vs. Arizona Cardinals
This one is simple. The answer to the Texans is CJ Stroud. CJ Stroud is the best Quarterback to ever put on a Houston Texan jersey. He makes everyone, especially his Wide Receivers much better. Noah Brown has NEVER had a 100-yard receiving game in his NFL career. He has had back-to-back games of OVER 150 receiving yards. He has also finished as the WR3 and WR6 in consecutive weeks.
With that being said, these Texans receivers are very intriguing as long as Stroud is the Quarterback. Against a Cardinals team that has Kyler Murray back, I expect both teams to have over 25 points and CJ Stroud to find Noah Brown a ton in Week 11. My bold prediction is that Noah Brown finishes inside the top 15 Wide Receivers for a third consecutive week.
Jayden Reed vs. Los Angeles Chargers
This one is pretty simple. Christian Watson is basically Chase Claypool. Romeo Doubs and Jayden Reed are not separated by much. Reed had his first WR1 week of his young NFL career. Also, Reed has now seen 80 or more receiving yards in two of the past three weeks. The Packers are a bad football team and have a projected top-six pick. I am a Packers fan and I can admit this. There is no need to try and string along a few wins. We draft a top tackle to help Jordan Love or a top Quarterback to replace him.
As for now, J0rdan Love likes Jayden Reed and you should too. Expect a top-24 finish for Reed as the Packers will be playing from behind even before kickoff happens.
