Top 75 wide receivers standard rankings for Week 11 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best wide receivers going in Week 11 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

UPDATE

I’m still on Hill for the most upside in standard leagues this week, but Thomas is right up there with him.

It looks like James Bradberry will play, which hurts Julio Jones’ upside.

Emmanuel Sanders’ rib injury is concerning. If he does play, which it looks like he will, I don’t think you can go all in on him as a WR2. Sanders’ injury should push Deebo Samuel up into a good WR3 play.

D.J. Moore is my favorite breakout play this week. Start him.


This week we have a battle between Tyreek Hill and Michael Thomas for the top spot in the standard rankings. Hill has five touchdowns in his last three games, and Thomas has three in his, but more yards, targets, and receptions in that span. That pushes Thomas ahead of Hill in PPR, but on average, Hill is a much better touchdown producer, and when you add Patrick Mahomes back into the mix, Hill is my pick, even in a tougher matchup.

Bye Weeks

Green Bay Packers, New York Giants, Seattle Seahawks, Tennessee Titans

WRs on bye: Davante Adams, Golden Tate, Darius Slayton, Tyler Lockett, D.K. Metcalf, A.J. Brown

Injury/Status Report

Emmanuel Sanders: Sanders left MNF early with a rib injury and will get an MRI to gauge the extent. Deebo Samuel stepped up in his place against Seattle.

Brandin Cooks: Cooks won’t play in Week 11 due to his concussion. This news comes early in the week and might portend more missed games moving forward.

Devin Funchess: Funchess appears to be ready to return to practice this week. He likely wouldn’t see a significant workload if he ends up playing.

T.Y. Hilton: Right now, it looks like Hilton will have a tough time playing this week against Jacksonville.

A.J. Green: Green is still considered day-to-day with his knee injury, but after he had swelling in that same knee, his prospects don’t seem good for a return to an 0-9 team.

Will Fuller: Fuller returned to his first practice since Week 7. We’ll see how much he practices this week before deeming him ready to go.

Dede Westbrook: After getting the bye week to heal, Westbrook returned to practice. If all goes well, he should play against the Colts.

Marcus Lattimore: Lattimore’s hamstring injury is considered week-to-week, so we shouldn’t expect him to play against the Buccaneers. If that comes true, Mike Evans will have an easier matchup.

James Bradberry/Donte Jackson: The Panthers cornerbacks are hurting and will have trouble getting to 100 percent this week if they play. Julio Jones and Calvin Ridley would benefit.

WR Ranking Tiers

Tier 1

Michael Thomas’ safety is a big plus each week, even though his upside isn’t the same as Mike Evans, who I have at No. 3 receiver. With Marshon Lattimore out, Evans has another 200 yards, three-touchdown game in his range of outcomes, while Thomas is more in the 13 receptions for 150 yards two touchdowns realm. The good news is that they play each other and we get to watch!

Tier 2

John Brown has yet to have the blow-up game we all expect, but he gets a great chance this week against the Dolphins, who rank 31st in DVOA against No. 1 receivers. Courtland Sutton also gets a great matchup with the Vikings, a team John Brown put up 83 yards and a touchdown on a few weeks back. Sutton is a big play waiting to happen, and I expect Brandon Allen will need to throw the ball in this one. Odell Beckham Jr. was force-fed the ball against Tre’Davious White last week, and it didn’t work out that well. The Steelers have played well against wide receivers, but they don’t have someone like White on their team who can take it to Beckham. If he gets big targets, he has a chance for an upside game.

WR Streamers

Robby Anderson hasn’t come close to what many fantasy footballers hoped he would do, but it would behoove Sam Darnold to get him more involved.

Zach Pascal has proven himself to be the best receiver on the field for the Colts of late, and he should get Jacoby Brissett back this week in a game that could be higher scoring than expected.

Deebo Samuel is a must-start if Emmanuel Sanders is out with a rib injury.
