What to do with Austin Seibert in Week 11 fantasy football

Kickers can carry the day in fantasy. We take a look at Browns kicker Austin Seibert’s fantasy football prospects heading into Week 11 Thursday Night Football.

The Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers square off on Thursday Night Football to open Week 11, and it could be a defensive struggle. DraftKings Sportsbook has installed the point total at 40, which is tied for the second lowest of the Week 11 slate.

It might not be a great opportunity for skill position players, but the kickers could be plenty busy. Browns kicker Austin Seibert is on a modest roll of late scoring at least eight points in each of the team’s last three games. His high water mark was two weeks ago when he converted four field goals under 40 yards. He has converted all 16 field goals he has attempted this season and has three extra point misses.

Seibert ranks 16th among kickers in fantasy points this season, and ESPN projects him to have the tenth most fantasy points in Week 11. You can probably find some decent options on waivers, including Jaguars kicker Josh Lambo and Vikings kicker Dan Bailey. I like both of their matchups better this week.
