Fantasy Fox: Top 50 wideouts for Week 11 (standard scoring)

Here are my top 50 wide receivers for Week 11, citing standard-scoring leagues only.

This countdown doesn’t lean on a particular stat. It’s merely an educated best guess of which pass-catchers will tally the best combination of total yards and touchdowns for the NFL’s 11th weekend.

Regardless of how these rankings shake out every week, it shouldn’t supersede two important factors that go into regular lineup consideration:

1. Always play your healthy superstars.
2. Always ride your gut instinct over a certain guru’s analysis (read: plausible deniability).

BYES: Jacksonville, Dallas, N.Y. Jets, Baltimore
