Fantasy Player Projections

 
WIDE RECEIVERS
RankTeamPlayerProjectionOpponent
1Atlanta FalconsRoddy White
7 rec, 130 yards, 1 TD
White had another huge game against Baltimore last week and has now gone over 100 yards in five of his nine games. Expect another strong showing in Week 11.
atSt. Louis Rams
2Kansas City ChiefsDwayne Bowe
5 rec, 110 yards, 1 TD
Bowe has entered into must-start territory with eight touchdowns in his past five games. He should remain in your starting lineup against the league's 27th-ranked pass defense.
vsArizona Cardinals
3Detroit LionsCalvin Johnson
6 rec, 105 yards, 1 TD
Johnson struggled two weeks ago when the Lions were forced to deploy Drew Stanton at quarterback due to injuries. Otherwise, he has been a stellar fantasy options with an established rapport with Shaun Hill. Keep him in your lineup.
atDallas Cowboys
4New England PatriotsWes Welker
9 rec, 90 yards, 1 TD
Welker has not provided many big plays this season, but expect him to catch enough passes this week to be a fantasy factor in all leagues.
vsIndianapolis Colts
5New Orleans SaintsMarques Colston
7 rec, 95 yards, 1 TD
Drew Brees has looked Colston's way a lot in recent games, a trend that should continue coming out of the Saints' bye. Get Colston back in your lineup.
vsSeattle Seahawks
6New York GiantsHakeem Nicks
5 rec, 105 yards, 1 TD
Nicks has four 100-yard efforts and five touchdowns over his last six games, so expect him to put up big fantasy numbers again in Week 11.
atPhiladelphia Eagles
7Green Bay PackersGreg Jennings
6 rec, 95 yards, 1 TD
Jennings has put up at least six receptions and 74 yards in each of his past four games -- including a Week 7 victory over Minnesota. He should be able to at least match that production again.
atMinnesota Vikings
8Indianapolis ColtsReggie Wayne
7 rec, 90 yards, 1 TD
Wayne recorded a season-low 34 yards last week, but he remains by far the Colts' most experienced receiving option and should remain in your lineup.
atNew England Patriots
9Denver BroncosBrandon Lloyd
4 rec, 100 yards, 1 TD
Lloyd has put up two huge games in a row and still leads the league in receiving. Expect him to remain very active in the passing game.
atSan Diego Chargers
10Jacksonville JaguarsMike Thomas
5 rec, 90 yards, 1 TD
The stars aligned for Thomas last week, who caught a Hail Mary pass to beat the Texans. He's arguably a better fantasy option than Mike Sims-Walker right now, though neither has shown the consistency to be considered safe weekly options.
vsCleveland Browns
11Tampa Bay BuccaneersMike Williams
4 rec, 95 yards, 1 TD
Williams has been a steady producer this season, and he should put up decent numbers again this week against a vulnerable 49ers pass defense.
atSan Francisco 49ers
12Baltimore RavensAnquan Boldin
4 rec, 90 yards, 1 TD
Boldin?s touchdown last week was his sixth of the season and third in three games. His value in the red zone is undeniable, but keep in mind that Derrick Mason, Todd Heap and T.J. Houshmandzadeh have seen an increase in targets recently.
atCarolina Panthers
13Philadelphia EaglesDeSean Jackson
3 rec, 95 yards, 1 TD
Jackson continues to put up huge numbers whenever Michael Vick starts, so expect him to see plenty of action again this week.
vsNew York Giants
14Houston TexansAndre Johnson
4 rec, 90 yards, 1 TD
Last Sunday's game was Johnson's fourth over 100 yards receiving this season. He still does not receive as many looks in the end zone as one would like, but there is still no reason to remove him from your starting lineup.
atNew York Jets
15Dallas CowboysDez Bryant
5 rec, 110 yards
One could make the argument that Bryant is a better option than Miles Austin at the moment. Bryant again dominated on Sunday with 104 yards receiving and a touchdown, albeit on three receptions. He is certainly worth consideration against Detroit.
vsDetroit Lions
16Indianapolis ColtsPierre Garcon
5 rec, 80 yards, 1 TD
Garcon has been quiet the last couple weeks, but he should remain in your lineup as a starting receiver in a Peyton Manning-led offense.
atNew England Patriots
17San Diego ChargersPatrick Crayton
4 rec, 80 yards, 1 TD
Crayton has put up decent numbers over the last few weeks, but he may be back in a reserve role in Week 11. Have other options ready.
vsDenver Broncos
18New Orleans SaintsLance Moore
4 rec, 80 yards, 1 TD
Moore has a nice matchup this week against a Seahawks defense that struggles to stop the pass. He is worth a start in most formats.
vsSeattle Seahawks
19Cincinnati BengalsTerrell Owens
5 rec, 70 yards, 1 TD
Owens had fewer than 10 targets last week for the first time since Week 3. Consider that less a sign of his diminishing involvement in the offense and more an indication of his brilliant consistency. Owens should still be started on a weekly basis.
vsBuffalo Bills
20Washington RedskinsAnthony Armstrong
4 rec, 70 yards, 1 TD
Armstrong led the team for a second straight week with 83 yards receiving on three catches. He is the team's best deep threat, but his limited targets places him firmly in the boom-or-bust category of fantasy receivers.
atTennessee Titans
21Green Bay PackersJames Jones
3 rec, 75 yards, 1 TD
Jones had a breakout game against Dallas his last time out, but he will likely be back in the third receiver role this week with Donald Driver expected to return. Jones' value will directly depend on Driver's status.
atMinnesota Vikings
22New York GiantsMario Manningham
4 rec, 70 yards, 1 TD
Manningham put up big numbers in a starting role last week, and he could remain in the lineup this week with Steve Smith still banged up. Manningham is worth a start in most formats if he starts again.
atPhiladelphia Eagles
23New York JetsBraylon Edwards
3 rec, 70 yards, 1 TD
Edwards' 59-yard performance against his former team was a little disappointing considering the talking he did during the game. His prospects look better against the league's worst pass defense.
vsHouston Texans
24Arizona CardinalsLarry Fitzgerald
5 rec, 60 yards, 1 TD
Fitzgerald consistently sees a ton of targets, but has been unable to turn in a monster performance due to Derek Anderson's struggles at quarterback. Expect those struggles to continue, making Fitzgerald a somewhat frustrating fantasy option.
atKansas City Chiefs
25Minnesota VikingsPercy Harvin
3 rec, 70 yards, 1 TD
Harvin has put up at least 10 fantasy points in each of his last three games, so he deserves a start this week even though he was held in check by the Packers last time the two teams met.
vsGreen Bay Packers
26New York JetsSantonio Holmes
4 rec, 65 yards, 1 TD
Holmes' numbers have been inflated the last the two weeks by long catches after regulation. Still, it is clear he has become fully acclimated to the Jets offense. He is a solid play against a Swiss-cheese Texans' secondary.
vsHouston Texans
27Buffalo BillsSteve Johnson
5 rec, 90 yards
Johnson was held without a touchdown for a second straight game, which is somewhat surprising considering the five-game scoring streak he was on previously. Still, he received eight targets and remains a worthwhile WR2/3.
atCincinnati Bengals
28Washington RedskinsSantana Moss
5 rec, 90 yards
Moss has been a consistent, if unspectacular fantasy option this season. Though one would like to see more scores, he is averaging close to six catches per game. He should see his usual touches against Tennessee's 20th-ranked pass defense.
atTennessee Titans
29San Diego ChargersSeyi Ajirotutu
3 rec, 65 yards, 1 TD
Floyd should return to the field this week after missing the last three games. Since the Chargers do not play until Monday, carefully monitor Floyd's status this week if you are considering using him.
vsDenver Broncos
30Tennessee TitansNate Washington
4 rec, 60 yards, 1 TD
Washington has made his living as a deep threat, but he may have to adjust to a new role with Randy Moss around. Still, look for things to open up some for Washington with Moss drawing coverage.
vsWashington Redskins
31St. Louis RamsBrandon Gibson
5 rec, 80 yards
Gibson had another strong game in Week 10 and is worth a look in deeper leagues due to a favorable matchup this week against the Falcons.
vsAtlanta Falcons
32Philadelphia EaglesJeremy Maclin
3 rec, 60 yards, 1 TD
Maclin has been a bit up and down in recent weeks, but he still remains a potent enough threat in the passing game to warrant a start against a stiff Giants run defense.
vsNew York Giants
33Pittsburgh SteelersMike Wallace
3 rec, 80 yards
Wallace has found the end zone five times in his last five games, so he deserves a start this week even against a strong Raiders pass defense.
vsOakland Raiders
34St. Louis RamsDanny Amendola
5 rec, 35 yards, 1 TD
Amendola continues to catch a lot of short passes, but he has also scored in three straight games. Fantasy owners in most formats should consider using Amendola against a suspect Falcons secondary.
vsAtlanta Falcons
35New England PatriotsDeion Branch
4 rec, 40 yards, 1 TD
Branch was more involved in the offense last week, and he should continue to see increased targets. Give Branch a shot this week if you are looking for a receiver.
vsIndianapolis Colts
36San Francisco 49ersMichael Crabtree
4 rec, 40 yards, 1 TD
Crabtree has scored in four of the last five weeks, so he is a good option this week even against a stiff Tampa Bay pass defense.
vsTampa Bay Buccaneers
37Denver BroncosJabar Gaffney
4 rec, 70 yards
Gaffney has recored at least 50 yards in seven straight games, so he is worth a start this week if you are looking for a consistent, safe option.
atSan Diego Chargers
38Oakland RaidersLouis Murphy
3 rec, 75 yards
Murphy is expected to return to practice this week, so he will likely start barring any setbacks. Murphy will be an option in deeper leagues against a Steelers team that is 26th in the league against the pass.
atPittsburgh Steelers
39Detroit LionsNate Burleson
5 rec, 60 yards
Burleson continues to play behind Calvin Johnson, but at least he has been a pretty steady second fiddle. He has seen at least eight targets in each of his last four games, and the Lions have already proven they can throw the ball even with Shaun Hill.
atDallas Cowboys
40Buffalo BillsLee Evans
3 rec, 40 yards, 1 TD
Evans is still the best deep threat on his team, which means something even if he has to play for the Bills. He can put up decent numbers with some consistency, but will lay the occasional dud that comes with playing on a bad team.
atCincinnati Bengals
41Chicago BearsJohnny Knox
4 rec, 65 yards
Knox is clearly the top receiving option in Chicago, though his numbers are hardly eye-popping. Still, he receives a healthy number of targets on a weekly basis, and could become a solid option if he ever starts finding the end zone with consistency.
atMiami Dolphins
42Miami DolphinsBrandon Marshall
6 rec, 55 yards
Marshall has seen his production decline since Week 7, and now will likely have to deal with a new starter at quarterback. It's hard to imagine he won't see a lot of targets still, but Marshall's upside is somewhat limited.
vsChicago Bears
43New Orleans SaintsRobert Meachem
3 rec, 70 yards
The Saints should be able to move the ball through the air with ease this week, so Meachem will be an option for those seeking a wide receiver with a favorable matchup.
vsSeattle Seahawks
44Jacksonville JaguarsMike Sims-Walker
4 rec, 65 yards
There is no rhyme or reason to Sims-Walker's production pattern. Playing against two bad secondaries in consecutive weeks, Dallas and Houston, he put up 153 yards receiving one week 26 the next. Start at your own risk.
vsCleveland Browns
45Houston TexansKevin Walter
4 rec, 60 yards
Prior to Walter's six-catch, 90-yard performance last week, he had been held without a catch for three straight games. He could see more targets with Jacoby Jones taking on more special teams duties, but the Jets are a poor matchup.
atNew York Jets
46Seattle SeahawksMike Williams
5 rec, 55 yards
Williams exploded for a season-high 145 yards a week ago after recording just 42 yards in the previous two games. He is worth a start this week against an average Saints pass defense.
atNew Orleans Saints
47Tampa Bay BuccaneersArrelious Benn
4 rec, 50 yards
Benn has reached the end zone in two straight games, so he could be worth a start in deeper leagues this week.
atSan Francisco 49ers
48Arizona CardinalsSteve Breaston
3 rec, 55 yards
Breaston put up 98 yards receiving on just four receptions. Decent numbers, but he could have done better considering he was targeted 10 times.
atKansas City Chiefs
49Pittsburgh SteelersHines Ward
4 rec, 50 yards
Ward suffered a concussion last week, but he does not believe it is serious enough to keep him out this week. Still, Ward will have trouble finding the end zone this week, so do not expect much production.
vsOakland Raiders
50Dallas CowboysMiles Austin
3 rec, 50 yards
Austin found the end zone for the first time since Week 5 when Tony Romo was throwing passes. He had 68 yards receiving but just two receptions. Keep that in mind before claiming him back in full fantasy form. He only received three targets.
vsDetroit Lions
51Indianapolis ColtsAustin Collie
3 rec, 50 yards
Collie did not play last week due to a concussion, but there is a chance he could return this week. Consider him questionable.
atNew England Patriots
52Atlanta FalconsMichael Jenkins
3 rec, 50 yards
Jenkins has averaged about 57 receiving yards in the four games he has appeared in this season. Expect similar production this week.
atSt. Louis Rams
53Philadelphia EaglesJason Avant
3 rec, 45 yards
Avant had a good game last week, but do not expect him to do much this week against a Giants defense that is fourth in the league against the pass.
vsNew York Giants
54Miami DolphinsBrian Hartline
3 rec, 45 yards
Hartline's fantasy prospects were on the upswing with performances of 85 and 98 yards receiving in consecutive weeks. It's unfortunate then that Miami will likely be forced to go through another change at quarterback.
vsChicago Bears
55Cleveland BrownsMohamed Massaquoi
2 rec, 50 yards
Massaquoi's touchdown last week saved what was otherwise an awful day receiving (two catches, eight yards). Massaquoi is impossible to recommend in any fantasy format without showing any kind of consistency.
atJacksonville Jaguars
56Miami DolphinsDavone Bess
4 rec, 35 yards
Sunday was Bess' lowest yardage output since Week 2. All targets in the Dolphins' passing game will take a hit as long as Tyler Thigpen is projected as the starter.
vsChicago Bears
57Baltimore RavensDerrick Mason
3 rec, 40 yards
Mason has decent value as long as he continues to find the end zone as he has done in two straight games. Otherwise, he doesn?t see enough targets downfield to really be considered a weekly starter in anything but deep PPR leagues.
atCarolina Panthers
58Carolina PanthersDavid Gettis
3 rec, 35 yards
Outside of a Week 7 explosion, Gettis hasn't recorded more than 42 yards receiving in any game this season. Carolina ranks dead last in the league in total defense, and has a rookie quarterback at the helm. Stay away from Gettis.
vsBaltimore Ravens
59Oakland RaidersDarrius Heyward-Bey
3 rec, 35 yards
Heyward-Bey sandwiched two doughnuts around his huge game in Week 8, so he is a risky option this week.
atPittsburgh Steelers
60Cincinnati BengalsChad Ochocinco
2 rec, 40 yards
When Ochocinco gets enough targets, he is perfectly capable of being a fantasy star. The presence of Terrell Owens has relegated Ochocinco to a feast-or-famine performances.
vsBuffalo Bills
61Carolina PanthersSteve Smith
3 rec, 35 yards
Smith can't be considered a sure-starter in any format, especially with a rookie quarterback at the helm. Smith hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 2, and has a tough defensive matchup this week against the Ravens.
vsBaltimore Ravens
62Cleveland BrownsChansi Stuckey
3 rec, 35 yards
Stuckey could see an uptick in targets with Josh Cribbs (toes) questionable at best to play Sunday. Stuckey has been a consistent source of receptions in deep PPR leagues, but his lack of touchdowns limits his upside.
atJacksonville Jaguars
63San Francisco 49ersJosh Morgan
2 rec, 35 yards
Morgan hauled in a long pass last week, but he is not seeing enough targets to warrant a start against the Bucanners.
vsTampa Bay Buccaneers
64Cincinnati BengalsJordan Shipley
3 rec, 30 yards
Shipley has proven to be a clutch third receiver in crucial moments. As far as fantasy prospects go, you should be able to do better.
vsBuffalo Bills
65Minnesota VikingsBernard Berrian
2 rec, 30 yards
Berrian put up a goose egg last week after a strong Week 9 performance, so he is a risky play against a strong Packers pass defense.
vsGreen Bay Packers
66Arizona CardinalsEarly Doucet
2 rec, 30 yards
Doucet had 71 yards receiving and a touchdown last week in what was by far his best outing of the season. At this point, however, the performance is more of an outlier than a sign of things to come.
atKansas City Chiefs
67Tennessee TitansRandy Moss
2 rec, 30 yards
Moss had just one reception for 26 yards in his debut with the Titans last week. With some more time to jell with his teammates, he should put up better numbers. Still, Tennessee has never been a prolific passing team.
vsWashington Redskins
68New England PatriotsBrandon Tate
2 rec, 30 yards
Tate remains more of a big-play threat than a consistent fantasy option, so he is not a great play this week against a Colts defense that is 10th in the league in pass defense.
vsIndianapolis Colts
69Chicago BearsDevin Hester
2 rec, 25 yards
Last week was just Hester's second game this season with over 30 yards receiving, which should tell you what you need to know about his fantasy prospects. Hester should not be started in any format until he produces on a weekly basis.
atMiami Dolphins
70Seattle SeahawksDeon Butler
2 rec, 20 yards
Butler's production has been spotty this season, so only those in deeper leagues should consider using him.
atNew Orleans Saints
71Green Bay PackersDonald Driver
2 rec, 20 yards
Driver will likely return to the field this week, but give him a game to see how he performs before getting him back in your lineup. Otherwise look for James Jones or Jordy Nelson on the waiver wire.
atMinnesota Vikings
72St. Louis RamsLaurent Robinson
2 rec, 20 yards
Even though the Falcons are not very good against the pass, Robinson has not done enough in recent weeks to warrant a start this week.
vsAtlanta Falcons
73Denver BroncosDemaryius Thomas
1 rec, 20 yards
Thomas has not done enough in recent weeks to warrant a start against a Chargers defense that is third in the league against the pass.
atSan Diego Chargers
74Seattle SeahawksBen Obomanu
1 rec, 15 yards
Obomanu has gotten more involved in the offense in recent weeks, but he is not a great fantasy option as the third receiver in an inconsistent passing offense.
atNew Orleans Saints
75New York GiantsSteve Smith
1 rec, 15 yards
Smith sat out last week and could miss more time, so plan on going with another receiver this week.
atPhiladelphia Eagles
76Buffalo BillsDavid Nelson
1 rec, 10 yards
With Roscoe Parrish done for the season with a broken wrist, Nelson should assume the third receiver role. Don't expect a huge increase in targets for Nelson. More likely, Lee Evans and Steve Johnson will receive more attention.
atCincinnati Bengals
77San Diego ChargersMalcom Floyd
1 rec, 5 yards
Floyd should return to the field this week after missing the last three games. Since the Chargers do not play until Monday, carefully monitor Floyd's status this week if you are considering using him.
vsDenver Broncos
