QBDrew Brees

Drew Brees

290 pass yards, 3 pass TDs, INT

Brees passed for 298 yards against the Falcons in Week 10, and he threw three touchdowns for the sixth time this season. The Raiders are not good against the pass, so Brees should have another big day in Week 11.

RBChris Ivory

Chris Ivory

80 rush yards, rush TD, 2 rec, 14 rec yards

For the second week in a row, Ivory scored for the Saints while also rushing for 72 yards against Atlanta. With Darren Sproles (hand) likely out for another week, Ivory has earned more touches and is worth a look as an RB2 in Week 11 at Oakland.

RBMark Ingram

Mark Ingram

45 rush yards, 1 rec, 8 rec yards

Ingram led the Saints with 16 carries against Atlanta in Week 10, although Chris Ivory outperformed him in the Saints' backfield. Ingram looks like a decent flex option in Week 11 at Oakland, but Ivory will likely take more touches away from him.

RBPierre Thomas

Pierre Thomas

24 rush yards, 1 rec, 8 rec yards

Thomas had just six touches against the Falcons, and it's becoming apparent that the Saints are going to lean on Chris Ivory and Mark Ingram for now, while Darren Sproles (hand) heals.

WRMarques Colston

Marques Colston

6 rec, 80 yards, rec TD

While Colston caught just three passes for 26 yards against Atlanta, he made one of those catches count. He has seven touchdowns in his past seven games, and he should be starting in all leagues each week.

WRLance Moore

Lance Moore

7 rec, 72 yards, rec TD

Moore had yet another good week serving as the Saints' third receiving option, catching seven passes for 91 yards against Atlanta in Week 10. He should do well against a subpar Oakland defense in Week 11.

TEJimmy Graham

Jimmy Graham

6 rec, 70 yards, rec TD

Graham had his best game of the season in Week 10, catching seven passes for 146 yards and two touchdowns against the Falcons. Graham has four touchdowns in his past three games, which isn't a surprise for one of the league's top three fantasy tight ends.

KGarrett Hartley

Garrett Hartley

4 PATs, FG

Hartley kicked a field goal successfully against the Falcons for the first time since Week 5, and he added four extra points for the second week in a row. The Saints' offense can be deadly, but Hartley's chances are intermittent, which makes him a mediocre fantasy starter in Week 11.

DEFENSE

INT, 2 Sacks

The Saints had one interception and one sack against the Falcons in Week 10, but they also allowed more than 25 points for the seventh time this season. Look elsewhere for fantasy help in Week 11.

Pos.PlayerProjection
QBCarson Palmer

Carson Palmer

310 pass yards, 3 pass TDs, INT

Palmer completed 29 passes for 368 yards, two touchdowns and an interception against the Ravens in Week 10, but much of that came as the Raiders played catch-up. Still, Palmer has six touchdowns and 782 passing yards in his past two games and this is a great matchup for him.

RBMarcel Reece

Marcel Reece

40 rush yards, 6 rec, 55 rec yards

If Darren McFadden (ankle) can't play again in Week 11, the Raiders will likely lean on Reece again. He rushed for 48 yards to go with his seven catches and 56 receiving yards last week and could be a nice flex play in Week 11 against the Saints.

RBTaiwan Jones

Taiwan Jones

15 rush yards

Jones had just three touches in Week 10, totaling 13 yards against the Ravens. The Raiders will go to Marcel Reece again if Darren McFadden (ankle) is still out. Jones has great speed, but he can't yet translate that into success on the field.

WRDenarius Moore

Denarius Moore

5 rec, 95 yards, rec TD

Moore continues to play well for Oakland, as he caught four passes for 90 yards and a touchdown against the Ravens. He was targeted eight times, and he has 22 catches on 42 targets (392 yards, four touchdowns) over the past five games.

WRDarrius Heyward-Bey

Darrius Heyward-Bey

7 rec, 90 yards, rec TD

Heyward-Bey caught five passes for 82 yards and a touchdown against Baltimore for his best fantasy day of the season. The speedster has 182 receiving yards and two touchdowns in his past three games. He's worth a look as a WR2 against a Saints team that is allowing 307 passing yards.

TEBrandon Myers

Brandon Myers

5 rec, 55 yards, rec TD

One week after Myers' career day against the Buccaneers, he caught five passes for 57 yards against the Ravens. Consider Myers a low-end fantasy starter this week against a Saints team that has trouble against the pass.

KSebastian Janikowski

Sebastian Janikowski

3 PATs, 2 FGs

Janikowski kicked two field goals and two extra points at Baltimore in Week 10. He has just one missed field goal in 22 attempts, and given that he has kicked four field goals in a game twice this season, the Raider is a safe play.

DEFENSE

INT, Sack

The Raiders laid down for the Ravens, who scored 55 points against them in Week 10. The Saints have one of the best offenses in the NFL, making the Raiders' defense a unit to avoid.
