Each week, PFF's fantasy football analysts post rankings in PPR, non-PPR and 0.5-PPR formats for the league's offensive skill positions. IDP rankings are also folded into the mix, making the PFF rankings pages the go-to resource for all your fantasy football decisions during the 2021 NFL season.

According to FantasyPros, my rankings are currently third out of 188 analysts for the 2021 season.

Here are my fantasy football rankings for Week 11 of the 2021 NFL season, including some notes about players to help you make your weekly decisions.
