With only the Denver Broncos and Los Angeles Rams on bye this week, fantasy football managers will have plenty of options to choose from in Week 11. 

Using PFF’s vast research tools and player grades can help identify players to consider starting and others to avoid.

Here are some of the Week 11 fantasy football and DFS targets and fades based on PFF’s Week 11 fantasy football rankings. 

Rankings based on PPR scoring.

Target: Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals

PFF Consensus: QB7
Opponent: at Las Vegas Raiders 

Despite having a pair of excellent coverage cornerbacks in Casey Hayward Jr. and Nate Hobbs, the Las Vegas pass defense has been struggling. The Raiders have slipped to 17th in PFF’s coverage grades and have allowed the second-most fantasy points to opposing passers in the last five weeks, including a league-worst 11 touchdown passes. 

After drubbing Baltimore in Week 7, the Bengals dropped two straight games. Burrow’s abysmal Week 9 showing was his worst outing of the season, but with two full weeks off to rest and prepare for a Raiders squad that is reeling, Burrow is in an excellent position to emerge from the bye with his usual stellar production.

While we can’t project the 406-yard, five-TD beating Patrick Mahomes just put on the Raiders, Burrow has been tremendous on the road, tossing three touchdowns in four consecutive games away from Paul Brown Stadium. 

Fade: Carson Wentz, Indianapolis Colts

PFF Consensus: QB24
Opponent: at Buffalo Bills 

Even though the red-hot Colts got their fourth win in five weeks, Wentz had his worst fantasy performance of the season at home against a vulnerable Jacksonville secondary. He only managed to throw for 180 scoreless yards and struggled with accuracy. 

That’s a huge concern heading into Buffalo to face a fearsome Bills defense that boasts PFF’s No. 1 coverage grade. The Bills have only allowed six touchdown passes all season, none of which have occurred in Buffalo since Week 3.
