Week 11 is upon us, which means it's officially time to set our fantasy football lineups ahead of the Thursday night matchup. I've analyzed the schedule, available opportunities, usage rates and matchups to find the best and worst matchups of the week at all positions.


START: Jameis Winston, New Orleans Saints

Starting Winston is an incredibly risky task that may very well pay off in a big way. Sure, we don’t really know what Winston is with his new team in the Saints. The veteran gunslinger played roughly half of the Week 10 contest, completing 10 of 13 passes for 63 yards with an average depth of target of 6.0, for a total of 2.3 fantasy points.

While the performance wasn’t exactly inspiring, Winston was tossed into the fire mid-game due to an injury suffered by Drew Brees. This week, Winston will get the whole week to properly prepare as the starting quarterback and has a pristine matchup against the divisional rival Atlanta Falcons, who allow the most points to opposing quarterbacks this season.
