Wide receiver non-PPR rankings for Week 11 fantasy football

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

Final injury report

The biggest news of the day is that Davante Adams was left off of the final injury report for the Packers. He had a scare after getting in a limited practice session prior to snagging a DNP tag Thursday. Fantasy managers can breathe again.

Just as the Chiefs thought they had gained back their WR2 following two full practice sessions, the team lists Sammy Watkins as questionable on the final injury report. Watkins has been out since Week 5 with a hamstring injury, and it remains what type of role he will have if he does return to the lineup.

The Lions will be in a tough spot Sunday, as Kenny Golladay and Danny Amendola have been formally ruled out. The team will likely call upon a combination of veteran Marvin Jones, rookie Quintez Cepheus (intriguing DFS play) and TE T.J. Hockenson.

Out: Danny Amendola (hip), Kenny Golladay (hip), Laviska Shenault (hamstring), Adam Humphries (concussion)
Doubtful: N/A
Questionable: Dontrelle Inman (hamstring), Isaiah Wright (illness), Allen Lazard (core), Darrius Shepherd (shoulder), Equanimeous St. Brown (knee), Sammy Watkins (hamstring, calf), N’Keal Harry (shoulder), Matt Slater (knee), Kenny Stills (back), Collin Johnson (hamstring)

Thursday injury report

The biggest injury news of the week is bound to be that of Davante Adams. After getting in a limited practice on Wednesday with the ankle injury, he was downgraded and did not participate Thursday. It’s a trend in the wrong direction for 2020’s WR3 in standard scoring formats. Fantasy managers should keep a close eye on the final injury report and be making contingency plans in case Adams sits this contest out. Allen Lazard got in a limited session as he works to return from a groin injury.

Titans wideout AJ Brown didn’t practice Thursday, listed with a knee injury. However, rest days appear to be worked into Brown’s weekly regimen, and he should be fine for Sunday’s game.

Calvin Ridley got in another limited practice session, another move in the right direction toward a Sunday start.

The Lions wide receiver corps is in serious jeopardy for Week 11. After getting in a limited practice session Wednesday as he returns from a hip injury, Kenny Golladay was downgraded to DNP. Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola also did not practice, leaving Detroit with... Marvin Hall? Between these banged up wideouts and a thumb injury to Matthew Stafford, this outing could get ugly.

DNP: Tre’Quan Smith (concussion), Dontrelle Inman (hamstring), Danny Amendola (hip), Marvin Jones (knee), Laviska Shenault (hamstring), Adam Humphries (concussion), Davante Adams (ankle), A.J. Brown (knee)
Limited: Calvin Ridley (foot), Kenny Golladay (hip), Allen Lazard (core), Jerry Jeudy (ankle), Breshad Perriman (shoulder), Vyncint Smith (groin), Collin Johnson (hamstring)
Full: Jamal Agnew (ribs), Sammy Watkins (hamstring), Jarvis Landry (hip), Chris Godwin (finger), Scotty Miller (hip, groin)

Wednesday injury report

Tre’Quan Smith is not yet practicing after suffering a concussion in Week 10 versus the 49ers. Considering that he has yet to practice, we can likely assume he’ll be out for Week 11 — relevant only if you’d be brave enough to start him without Drew Brees to begin with.

There have been some updates for the Lions wideouts as well. Kenny Golladay has been out since Week 8 after suffering a hip injury. He got in a limited practice Wednesday, which could mean he’s trending in the right direction for a start against the Panthers. Unfortunately, Marvin Jones and Danny Amendola each got a DNP tag, which means we’ll have to keep a close eye on them heading into Sunday. Given QB Matthew Stafford’s thumb injury and the banged up receiving corps, this may be an offense to avoid in Week 11 if possible.

Jaguars rookie wideout Laviska Shenault has yet to practice as he works towards a return following a hamstring injury that held him out of Week 10. In his absence, Chris Conley and Keelan Cole combined for 15 targets. We should be prepared for another absence.

Davante Adams was listed as a limited participant on Wednesday with an ankle injury. He left last week’s contest with the injury but eventually returned to the game. Adams himself hasn’t confirmed that he’ll be available for Week 11 but says, “That’s the idea.”

Calvin Ridley is trending in the right direction for a potential return. Tuesday reports noted that he had returned to running and now got in a limited session. His availability would be excellent news for fantasy managers in an exciting divisional matchup against the Saints.

Rookie wideout Jerry Jeudy has once again popped up on the injury report for the second-consecutive week. Last week, it was a shoulder injury that ailed him; this week, he’s listed with an ankle injury. He should be good to go as long as he continues to practice through the week.

DNP: Tre’Quan Smith (concussion), Dontrelle Inman (hamstring), Danny Amendola (hip), Marvin Jones (knee), Kenny Stills (back), Laviska Shenault (hamstring), Adam Humphries (concussion)
Limited: Calvin Ridley (foot), Kenny Golladay (hip), Davante Adams (ankle), Jerry Jeudy (ankle), Breshad Perriman (shoulder), Vyncint Smith (groin), Collin Johnson (hamstring)
Full: Jamal Agnew (ribs), Sammy Watkins (hamstring), Jarvis Landry (hip)

Week 10 brought us plenty of monstrous performances, but there was hardly anything more spectacular than the Hail Mary from Kyler Murray to DeAndre Hopkins to take a last-second lead and win the game.

We saw plenty of surprising names at the top-end of WR scorers this week, including Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Willie Snead and Cole Beasley.

Rookies continue to shine as well, as Steelers WR Chase Claypool scored his ninth touchdown of the season. Bengals wideout Tee Higgins managed his second 100-yard performance on the season as well, currently on pace to post a 1,000 receiving yard season in his rookie year.

Injury news

Fantasy managers should keep an eye on Falcons wideout Calvin Ridley, who’s been out with a foot sprain. He is reportedly running, which is a step in the right direction, but a close eye should be kept on the practice reports through the week.

Kenny Golladay continues to miss practices with a hip injury and appears likely to miss Week 11.

John Brown exited Sunday’s contest with an ankle injury, but does get a bye this week to help rest up. It’s unclear if the Bills expect him to be healthy enough to play after the bye. If he’s not healthy upon return, Cole Beasley continues to be an underrated fill-in.

Bye weeks

The 49ers, Giants, Bears and Bills will be on a bye in Week 11. Fantasy teams will be without two offensive centerpieces, including Stefon Diggs and Allen Robinson. Outside of these studs, there were no players that fantasy managers should be relying on for weekly production.

Streaming options

Christian Kirk, Arizona Cardinals

Kirk had a down performance in Week 10 following a recent stint of production, where he’s quietly ranked as the WR6 in standard scoring formats Weeks 4-9. This week, he’ll face the Seahawks, who continue to lead the league in fantasy points allowed to wide receivers. Kirk nabbed two scores in his last meeting with Seattle and could be set for another one in a TNF matchup with an O/U of 57.5 points.

Travis Fulgham, Philadelphia Eagles

One catch for 8 yards didn’t exactly do the trick for fantasy managers in Week 10, but they should have some hope for this week’s outing against the Browns. Fulgham has seen 12 targets over the last two games and has had a safe floor since his premier in Week 4. The Browns held the Texans receivers in Week 10, but its worth noting that the weather was horrific, and the game was windy. They allowed four touchdowns to wideouts in the two games prior, however. Fulgham has a nice shot to bounce back against this secondary.
