Fantasy Football 2186 2520 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 11 31961227 Sit - Heath Miller Sit+-+Heath+Miller Fantasy Football

The Eagles and Chiefs have allowed a total of one touchdown between them to opposing tight ends, but they face Jordan Reed and Julius Thomas, respectively. Don’t worry, I’m not advising that you bench either one of those TEs this week. The Lions may be the 27th worst team in passing defense, but they have only allowed one opposing TD to a tight end (Tyler Eifert in Week 7). Last week, Heath Miller tallied his fewest reception total (one) and yards (six) of the year. – Adam Meyer

The hot-and-cold world of Keenan Allen continued last week as the Broncos held the Chargers’ receiver to 41 yards on four catches and no touchdown. This week, Allen faces a Dolphins defense that has allowed the fewest number of touchdowns to opposing wide receivers. Even in a loss to the then-winless Buccaneers last week, Miami only allowed a passing TD to an offensive lineman. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 2520 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 11 31960126 Sit - Stevan Ridley Sit+-+Stevan+Ridley Fantasy Football

I could end up being 100% wrong on the benching of Tom Brady and Stevan Ridley this week, but late in the fantasy regular season I want the safer bet. The Panthers own the second-best rushing defense this season, allowing 82 yards per game on the ground and only two rushing TDs. Also, with whispers of Shane Vereen returning to the Patriots on Monday night, Ridley’s role could be reduced. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 2520 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 11 31960125 Sit - Buffalo RBs Sit+-+Buffalo+RBs Fantasy Football

In Week 11, one of the bigger questions will be “How will the bye week affect the Jets?” This season, New York has alternated between wins and losses the entire year. Will they continue to win on odd-numbered weeks, or will the back-and-forth streak continue? Just in case, let’s sit any and all Bills running backs this week. C.J. Spiller has yet to produce back-to-back 100-yard performances and Fred Jackson hasn’t scored a touchdown in two-straight games. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 2520 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 11 31959347 Sit - Tom Brady Sit+-+Tom+Brady Fantasy Football

I know the rule is “start your studs,” but Tom Brady has only thrown two, or more, touchdown passes in four-out-of-nine games this season. Last week, I advised owners to bench Colin Kaepernick against Carolina and he was stifled to the tune of 91 passing yards and an interception. If you’re in a deep league with limited options, or in a two-QB league, start Brady. However, if you’re in a 10-team league, take a look at the free agent pool. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 2520 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 11 31961225 Start - Marcedes Lewis Start+-+Marcedes+Lewis Fantasy Football

Last week, I wrote that the Cardinals allow an average of one touchdown per game to opposing tight ends. Given that stat, I suggested that owners should start Garrett Graham in Week 10's gallery. Unfortunately, Graham only caught two passes for 18 yards. However, backup tight end Ryan Griffin did reach pay dirt. In Jacksonville’s return to the field without Justin Blackmon, Marcedes Lewis was the most targeted Jaguar. The stars could align on Sunday for those with Jason Witten on bye. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 2520 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 11 31961224 Start - Doug Baldwin Start+-+Doug+Baldwin Fantasy Football

The Vikings’ secondary has allowed an opposing receiver to record over 100 yards in the past three games (Jordy Nelson, Jason Witten, and Pierre Garcon). In the last two weeks, Doug Baldwin has been the most targeted receiver for the Seahawks with 18. Baldwin’s back-to-back 70+ yard games is enough for me to give an endorsing “start” for Week 11. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 2520 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 11 31960123 Start - Andre Ellington Start+-+Andre+Ellington Fantasy Football

Not to pick on the Jaguars too much this week, but they allow the second-most points to opposing running backs this season. The other two teams in the Top-Three, Dallas and St. Louis, are off this week. Owners were wondering how the carries would be divvied between Andre Ellington and Rashard Mendenhall now that Mendy was healthy. Answer: Pretty even. Mendenhall had 13 rushing attempts to Ellington’s 11, but the rookie had 13 more yards. I envision Ellington will break a big run for six points this week. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 2520 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 11 31961223 Start - Andre Brown Start+-+Andre+Brown Fantasy Football

Some of you rolled the dice last week and started Andre Brown in his first game back from injury. Kudos to you. Brown ran for 115 yards on 30 carries and found the end zone against the Raiders. This week, his Giants host the injured Packers, who have allowed running backs to rush for over 120 yards in back-to-back games. Brown is basically a must-start the rest of the season, while he stays healthy. – Adam Meyer

Fantasy Football 2186 2520 Fantasy 2013: Top 10 Starts and Sits of Week 11 31960124 Start - Carson Palmer Start+-+Carson+Palmer Fantasy Football

With the bye weeks dwindling down to just six remaining teams, two this week and four in Week 12, the need to pick up a quarterback becomes fewer and fewer. For Week 11, Tony Romo is the big name on bye, I don’t think many teams need to worry about Kellen Clemens not playing. With that being said, Carson Palmer has a favorable matchup against the Jaguars this week. Jacksonville has averaged two passing touchdowns allowed per game and 236 passing yards per contest. – Adam Meyer
