Injuries continue to ravage fantasy lineups (get well soon, Christian McCaffrey and Drew Brees), and bye weeks have us scrambling to find replacements for the likes of Josh Allen, Stefon Diggs, Brandon Aiyuk, John Brown and Allen Robinson II.

Nobody’s roster will be at 100% in Week 11, so we need to salvage victories however we can. I'm here to be your guide through weekly sit/start questions across traditional 10- and 12-team leagues, along with deeper formats.

So, without further ado, get ready for the 11th edition of the 2020 PFF fantasy football start ‘em or sit ‘em.

START: CAM NEWTON, NEW ENGLAND PATRIOTS

Newton ranks third among quarterbacks in PFF passing grade over the past three weeks (86.9) and has averaged 19.9 fantasy points per game, 10th-best at the quarterback position. The Patriots signal-caller has certainly hit his stride after a rough patch of games, and the matchup versus the Houston Texans makes him a lock for starting lineups in Week 11.
