4 adds and 3 drops for Week 11 in fantasy football

Time to get some help to finish off the regular season in your fantasy league.

Week 11 already? This season has been flying by, and we are getting to that point where you may start considering who you add based on their schedule for the fantasy playoffs.

For those well enough ahead to be able to disregard a few more matchups that is great, but if you are caught in the playoff race still this is hardly the season to be stocking up for possible playoff appearances with how easily it would be to lose a starter to COVID-19 protocols, or even just have them miss most of the practices leading up the the game

I’ll note players playoff schedule, but most of these adds are based on who can help you week to week still.

Adds

Wayne Gallman Jr., running back Giants: With Devonta Freeman out with an injury, Gallman has been putting together solid RB2/flex numbers. He scored two touchdowns this week against the Eagles, but he has also scored at least 13 points the past four weeks. He will be on a bye next week, but after that he plays some middle of the road matchups for the fantasy playoffs.

Salvon Ahmed, running back, Dolphins: So Ahmed had a very nice outing against the Chargers in a surprise start. He had 21 carries for 85 yards along with a touchdown. That is one of the better games a Dolphins running back has had this season. Now the tricky thing here is Matt Breida and Myles Gaskin will be returning soon, but if Ahmed can continue this momentum Miami has one of the easier schedules for running backs down the stretch. Also if anyone has dropped Gaskins in your league he is worth a pickup for the same reason.

J.D. McKissic, running back, Washington: It is wonderful to see Alex Smith back out there on a football field after everything he endured. With him comes his wonderful trait of constantly checking it down to running backs. McKissic had 15(!) targets this week. He converted that into seven receptions for 43 yards, but he also had a touchdown on the ground as well. McKissic has some rough matchups coming up for running backs, but if you are in a PPR league he is a must add.

Marvin Jones Jr., wide receiver, Lions: He is rostered in a lot of leagues, but that number needs to be much higher. He has been on a roll and just put up over 20 fantasy points against the toughest matchup for wide receiver. He had eight catches for 96 yards abd a touchdown. It is clear that he has become the focal point for the passing attack, and it is hard to see anyone taking it from him at this point.

Drops

Devin Singletary, running back, Bills: He has been included here before, but he hit rock bottom this week with only five touches for 10 total yards (15 rushing and negative five receiving). Buffalo didn’t plan on rushing the ball that much, but Zack Moss and Josh Allen both had more carries than Singletary. They both also scored rushing touchdowns as well. What is the upside to Singletary, and why is he rostered in over 80 percent of leagues?

Phillip Lindsay, running back, Broncos: Lindsay only had four carries this week after only getting eight carries the week before. It is clear that even having 83 yards three weeks ago hasn’t gained him any ground in this backfield dominated by Melvin Gordon. He is owned in just under 70 percent of leagues, and that number can be much lower.

A.J. Green, wide receiver, Bengals: It is painfully obvious that Green isn’t what he use to be Whether that be due to age or injury doesn’t matter to your fantasy team. Even when he had his big return for two weeks it wasn’t in typical Green fashion. He had a doughnut this week, and weather conditions weren’t great, but more importantly he is just being out played by Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins right now.

You may have added, dropped and added A.J. Green to your fantasy team already this season, but it’s time to cut him for good in 2020. He’s just had too man crippling duds to make him worth taking a risk on at any point moving forward.
