We are officially more than halfway through the NFL season. The defending Super Bowl champions are almost out of playoff contention, and both teams from New York are well over .500%. If only Dave Dameshek was still running the Shek Report….
Anyways, here are some solid fantasy pickups for week 11.
Trevor Lawrence, JAX
Geno Smith, SEA
Both Lawrence and Smith are on this list because of their easy upcoming schedule. Lawrence and the Jags return from their bye to face Baltimore, Detroit, and Tennessee, three of the worst defenses against QBs this season. Smith and the Seahawks will face Las Vegas, Los Angeles Rams, and Carolina. Besides the Rams, all of these are solid streaming matchups for these QBs. Smith can be started regardless as he is on fire.
Rachaad White, TB
Brian Robinson Jr, WAS
Rachaad White is winning reps over Leonard Fournette in Tampa, as the rookie notched 22 carries for 100+ yards against the Seahawks to Fournette’s 16 carries. Fournette is still seeing more usage than White in the passing game, but nonetheless this rookie should be a solid flex start most weeks moving forward.
Robinson had a great game on MNF against the Eagles with 26 carries and a TD, but is still seeing very low LPC and few receptions in the passing game. I think Robinson is also an OK flex, especially in matchups where he is likely going to score. Heinecke looks to have righted the Commander’s ship for the second half of the 2022 season.
Paris Campbell, IND
Garret Wilson, NYJ
Cambell looks to be Matt Ryan’s second favorite target this year, and I believe Ryan will start for the Colts for the rest of the 2022 season. He notched a 7/76/1 statline against the Raiders, and with Ryan back the Colts will be in the top half of the NFL’s passing offenses.
Wilson has strung together 3 solid weeks in a row, and ranks 27th amongst wide receivers in 2022. He and Zach Wilson are developing some serious chemistry and the Jets have shown they can compete against anyone, even the Buffalo Bills. I would have Wilson as a WR2 moving forward – he can play and is getting opportunities.
Trey McBride, ARI
Evan Engram, JAX
Unfortunately, Zach Ertz is out for the season with a knee injury. That’s too bad – he was having a great year in his first full season with the Cardinals. Anyways, his replacement will be Trey McBride, and will likely see 5+ targets per game moving forward. Solid pickup with potential to have real value later in the season.
Engram is quietly putting together a nice year. If any of the three main WRs in Jacksonville get injured, he should be a lock for a start in that week. Regardless he is a solid fantasy TE play and currently ranks 16th in ESPN scoring.
