Fantasy Football 2020 The best options to search for reinforcements in the virtual grid
OAnother Sunday of the NFL that is already part of history and, like every week, we have to look for the best options to reinforce Fantasy Football teams.
Week 11 will be, for many leagues, the penultimate of the regular season, so it goes without saying the importance of propping up the team to win and aspire to reach the Playoffs. In addition to injuries, bad confrontations and game casualties, Bills, Bears, Giants and 49ers have their bye weekSo Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, Alen Robinson, Wayne Gallman, Jordan Reed and other players will not be available.
How to strengthen yourself? We review the options, position by position, that are available in at least 50% of the leagues of NFL.com.
Damien Harris (RB NE, 29.2%). With Sony Michel out, he is being the Pats’ workhorse, surpassing 70 yards the last three weeks, two of those with more than 100. He only has one TD in the year, being the victim of Cam’s’ theft ‘of carries. in the red zone, but its production cannot be underestimated.
Kallen Ballage (RB LAC, 7.2%). Second week of at least 15 points. He’s the Chargers’ leading RB with Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson out, far outstripping rookie Joshua Kelley in the last two games (46 vs. 17 on plays against Miami, 18 on 7 on carries, 6 on 0 on targets).
Wayne Gallman (RB NYG, 39.4%). TD in four straight games, with at least 13 points. Devonta Freeman is on the disabled list, so the job is all for Gallman, who has improved just as the Giants are stepping up. The only problem is that he rests, but you could have a starting RB for the Playoffs available in free agency … you have to go for him.
Nyheim Hines (RB IND, 35.4%). The favorite waiver after week 1 was a resounding failure … 10 weeks later, it reappears. He had 39 plays Thursday against the Colts, more than Jordan Wilkins and Jonathan Taylor COMBINED on their way to 28.5 points, the second time in the last three weeks above 20. The most curious thing now is that he no longer only has a James-style role. White or Chris Thompson, only on third down, but was the Colts leading in carries. He is Flex’s minimum option in PPR leagues, but raises his potential to RB2 if he continues to count as much on the ground. And to improve the situation, he goes against the Packers, second worst defense in Fantasy against RB.
Alex Collins (RB SEA, 0.1%). Only if Carson and Hyde are absent again … was he and not DeeJay Dallas the busiest against the Rams. They play on Thursday, so there is little rest time to recover injured and in one of those he is a starter again.
Jakobi Meyers (WR NE, 22.2%). It’s Cam’s favorite WR. Double digit points in the last four games. He goes against Houston and its horrendous defense.
Marvin Jones (WR DET, 52.1%). The absence of Kenny Golladay has led to four weeks of double-digit points, with 4 touchdowns in the last three games. Minimal flex.
Marquez Valdes-Scantling (WR GB, 6.7%). 19.3 and 24.9 points the last two weeks. The only question is whether Allen Lazard is going to regain his pre-injury position, but in the meantime, he’s a very good option.
Jalen Reagor (WR PHI, 13.0%).Carson Wentz is looking for him, pitching to the rookie 7 and 6 times the last two games. And with their specialty in losing incredible games, Philly tends to go down, so there are more options to pitch and more for Reagor to eat.
Michael Pittman Jr. (WR IND, 1.0%). The rookie has been on the field more than 80% of plays the last two weeks, the highest of the year that he has used to have his two best games, including 101 yards against Tennessee. If you want an Indianapolis WR, it’s the exUSC. Green Bay looks like a favorable duel if they continue with so many casualties on the perimeter. You could cross off your pending account, scoring TD.
Brandon Aiyuk (WR SF, 58.8%). If Deebo Samuel is still out, he’s the focus of the offense. At least 17 points the last three games he played. The Niners are off this week 10, which could bring Deebo back, but if you have roster space, it might be worth taking.
Joe Burrow (QB CIN, 58.7%). Cincy’s QB has had two bad games, not reaching 15 points, when Ravens and Steelers turn him into a piñata. Washington has a good line, but has not pushed as much this year, so Burrow could have good performances.
Jameis Winston (QB NO, 0.3%). If Brees loses time with the rib injury, Jameis will be the Saints’ QB, leaving Taysom Hill for his forced surprise plays. And the potential is high, since despite all the deliveries, in 2019 Jameis finished as the QB5 of Fantasy, with more than 19 points per game, and his first duel is against Atlanta, the defense that has allowed the rival QB the most points. .
Tua Tagovailoa (QB MIA, 47.9%). 21.42 and 14.66 points in his last two starts. He has not had to throw too much, which limits him,
Logan Thomas (TE WSH, 5.8%). The position is in chaos beyond Kelce (no TE surpassed 14 points with KC’s in bye). So we play Russian roulette with whoever goes against a bad team vs TE. The worst, Atlanta, goes against Sains, but Jared cook is not at 50%. Washington is facing second-worst Cincy, and Thomas can benefit from Alex Smith’s always-short passes. Against Detroit he had 10.6, which is something to be expected and if that way he reaches the diagonals …
Trey Burton (TE IND, 1.3%). Very technically, Green Bay ties with Pittsburgh as the defense that gives the TE the fewest points … but remember last year how San Fran destroyed them and this year Tampa (Gronk was 5-78-1), Detroit (Hockenson 4 -62) and Atlanta (Hurst 4-51) had decent games. Again, to play Russian roulette for a week, perhaps Rivers’ favorite TE can see the end zone after two weeks of absence.
One of my favorite strategies, looking to attack the worst teams in the league. Every year passes: if you choose a defense that that week goes against the worst teams in the league, you have a Top 5 defense at the end of the year.
The Jets are are exploitable every week. The 49ers, as long as they keep more than half the offense out, they can be an option. Also they Cowboys DiNucci, Gilbert and even Dalton are options, as are the Jaguars Luton and the Broncos de Lock.
Dolphins (53.9%). Fantasy’s fourth-best defense is free in nearly half the leagues. 5 of their last 7 games have ended with 8 or more points. And they go against Denver, maybe without Drew Lock.
Browns (11.8%). Carson Wentz is a catch-and-drop machine. Cleveland can take advantage of this, and if there’s bad weather in Cleveland again, things get better.
Vikings (29.9%)At home against the Cowboys, whether DiNucci, Dalton or Gilbert the QB, they are an exploitable duel.
Chargers (34.2%). The Jets lottery winner this week. Joey Bosa could finally return after two shocked weeks, and Joe Flacco will play QB for the Jets again.
