HOT OR NOT 🔥❄️ (D.Reed)

What’s Hot🔥

QB

Marcus Mariota (Tennessee @ Indianapolis)
Marcus Mariota is one of the hottest quarterbacks over the past few weeks, scoring 27 and 25 points in his last two games!!! After a slow start to the season, Mariota has picked it up tremendously and is starting to look like a weekly QB1 in any format!!! This week, Mariota has a very favorable matchup on the road against a Colts defense that’s allowing 288 yards a game through the air and ranked 31st against the pass overall!!! Lock “Super Mario” in at the QB1 slot this week!!!

Drew Brees (New Orleans @ Carolina)
Drew Brees and company look to rebound after a heartbreaking loss to Denver last week where he played surprisingly well against the smothering Denver Broncos defense. Brees has a week 11 Thursday night matchup against the defending NFC champion Carolina Panthers who’ve been a “shell of their former selves” so far this season!!! Carolina has been the fifth-most generous defense to opposing signal callers, and I look for Drew Brees to take full advantage of such a tasty matchup!!!

RB

LeGarrette Blount (New England @ SanFrancisco)
Although LeGarrette Blount’s stats of 3.7 yards per carry and 75 yards a game may not “wow” you, it’s his league leading 12 rushing touchdowns that will!!! Blount’s ability to punch it in on the goal line is what has made him a top 5 fantasy back this season!!! Blount has a matchup made in heaven this week against the San Francisco 49ers who are the league’s worst team defending the run!! Blount is a bonafide RB1 in week 11!!!

Latavius Murray (Houston @ Oakland)
Latavius Murray is fresh off a bye and looks to add to his impressive week 9 performance, where he carried the ball 20 times for 114 yards rushing and 3 TDs against the Denver Broncos!!! Like Blount, Murray’s stats aren’t mind blowing, but his ability find “pay dirt” is why his 2016 season has become so productive!! I like Murray to find the end zone once again this week against a Houston Texans defense that has allowed 8 rushing TDs and an average of 20 points a game to opposing backs!!!

WR

Brandin Cooks (New Orleans @ Carolina)
In the week 6 matchup against the Carolina Panthers, Brandin Cooks put up a pretty amazing stat line of 7 catches for 173 yards and one score!!! This week, Cooks has another divisional matchup with the same team he completely shredded earlier this season!!! Although I don’t expect Cooks’ output to match his week 5 performance, I do expect for the speedy receiver to slip past  the defense for at least one score!!! Cooks hasn’t been great on the road, but I like him this week against such an inviting secondary!!!

Allen Robinson (Jacksonville @ Detroit)
Allen Robinson is coming off his best game of the season against the Houston Texans catching 9 balls for 107 yards and a score!!! Surprisingly, Robinsons week 10 performance was his first 100 yard game of the season!!! Robinson gets a week 11 matchup against an exploitable Detroit Lions secondary!!! Robinson should see enough targets from Blake Bortles to boost him to borderline WR1 status for the week!!!

TE

Jimmy Graham (Philadelphia @ Seattle)
The Philadelphia Eagles have been downright stingy to opposing TEs this season, but it’ll be difficult to bench Jimmy Graham in this one!!! It seems as if Graham is turning back into the dominating player he once was with Drew Brees and the New Orleans Saints!!! Even though Philly has made it difficult for the TEs, I still like Graham’s chances because I believe that Wilson will remain to rely on him heavily inside the redzone!!! With Wilson and Graham gaining more rapport with every game, this combination will only become more lethal!!!

D/ST

Kansas City (vs Tampa Bay)
Kansas City is once again amongst the league leaders in defense!! After a slow start to the season, Kansas City’s defense has been picking up steam in its last few contests! Kansas City brought the heat to Cam Newton this past week and look to do the same to Jameis Winston and company in week 11!! I look for the Kansas City defense to continue their hot streak as they host a turnover prone Buccaneers team this week!!!


What’s Not❄

QB

Jameis Winston (Tampa Bay @ Kansas City)
Although Jameis Winston is putting together a very impressive 2016 campaign, he’s been hit or miss on the road this season!!! This week, Winston and company travel to a hostile, Arrowhead Stadium as they take on a very tough Kansas City defense who may be getting pass rusher, Justin Houston, back this week! I’m not saying Winston will be a complete flop this week, but you should temper your expectations in this one!!!

RB

Tim Hightower (New Orleans @ Carolina)
Even though the Carolina Panthers have been terrible against the pass this season, they rank fourth against fantasy running backs, and they’ve shut down top running backs, such as Spencer Ware, Todd Gurley and David Johnson on the ground the last few weeks!!! With Hightower on the road and in timeshare with Mark Ingram, I would shy away from anyone in the New Orleans backfield this week!!!

WR

Jordan Matthews (Philadelphia @ Seattle)
Jordan Matthews (sore back) looks like he’s on track to play this week, but he has a tough task on the road against Seattle’s “Legion of Boom”!! At best, I have Matthews listed as a flex/WR3 this week! With the likes of Earl Thomas, Richard Sherman and Kam Chancellor in the secondary, I would lower all expectation for Matthews this week!!!

TE

Cameron Brate (Tampa Bay @ Kansas City)
Cameron Brate has been a very solid TE play the last 3 weeks, scoring a TD in each game!! In week 11, Brate gets a matchup against a recently hot Kansas City defense that has allowed just one touchdown and fewer than 5 points a game to opposing tight ends this season!!! This would be a week that would benefit you by playing it safe and keeping Brate on the bench if you have better options!!

D/ST

Philadelphia (@ Seattle)
Philly has been a solid defense for a good part of the year. However with Russell Wilson starting to get the ball rolling the past few weeks and  Thomas Rawls being added to the lineup, I don’t see how Philadelphia would be able to slow down Seattle’s momentum!!! This is not a defense you want to stream this week!!!
