Fantasy football sit-and-start advice should always be relative and league-dependent. Note that some players are targeted for DFS. Good luck with your Week 11 lineups!
Dallas Cowboys @ Carolina Panthers
Start: Cowboys D/ST
Sit: All Panthers but Adam Thielen
The Cowboys enter double-digit favorites, allowing the fourth-fewest yards per play this season. The Panthers are getting the second-fewest YPP on offense, and Frank Reich has taken back play-calling duties. Bryce Young has gotten just 5.5 YPA with only three touchdown passes over his last four games. He’s also taken 17 sacks over that span despite not facing any top-15 pass defenses. Dallas owns the league’s highest pressure rate and is a top D/ST fantasy start this week.
With Miles Sanders once again splitting snaps with Chuba Hubbard, no Carolina player can be trusted in fantasy lineups in this matchup, outside of Thielen. He’s cooled down significantly lately but could benefit from garbage time like he frequently did earlier this season. Moreover, Thielen ranks seventh in fantasy points per route run and sees his target rate jump from 20.2% up to 31.0% when facing man, a coverage Dallas uses at the league’s third-highest rate.
Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cleveland Browns
Start: Jaylen Warren, Jerome Ford
Warren still split snaps and touches with Najee Harris despite being named the starter last week, but he produced season-highs in carries and rushing yards for the second straight game anyway. The Browns aren’t a favorable matchup, but Pittsburgh’s running backs should be busy Sunday. Cleveland’s defense completely shuts down wide receivers and tight ends, while new starting QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson hurts its offense. Warren has limited upside given the matchup and splitting work, but he’s a fine flex play if needed.
Ford loses a lot of red-zone work to Kareem Hunt but is the lead back on a run-heavy team with an elite…
