After a few weeks of hiatus due to my health, I have returned just in time to get you to the playoffs. The success of your team so far will determine who you should be targeting. If your team is in 1st-3rd place and a mortal lock for playoffs, start targeting players with good schedules from weeks 13-16. Another strategy is targeting players on byes from teams who need to win now. If you're currently fighting for the last few spots, target players who can help you win now, don't be afraid to trade-off your depth. There are a ton of players who have been disappointments and that's something to take advantage of.
Week 11 Buys
Chubb owners are panicking because Kareem Hunt made his much-anticipated return to the gridiron this week. Even with Hunt sharing the field, Chubb had 20 carries, 4 targets and played 80 percent of snaps. The snaps are actually up 20% from the previous 2 weeks. Upcoming on the Browns schedule is match-ups against Miami, Arizona, and Cincinnati twice. This is a player I'm still extremely happy yo have.
Guice returns from Injured Reserve this week and should slide right back into the starting lineup. The Redskins have given the reigns to Haskins and are in full talent evaluation mode. Guice is available on a lot of waiver wires but should be able to be had for a bit time player like Royce Freeman. Many thought Guice was the top pure runner in the draft and now he finally has a chance to prove it.
Godwin has had back to back down weeks after his hot start to the season. His owners may be panicking that Evans is retaking his spot atop the depth chart. I've been saying all season that this is a 1A and 1B situation. Evans has 89 targets and Godwin has 83 targets. In the coming weeks, Godwin has match-ups against the Saints, Falcons twice, Lions and Texans. All exploitable match-ups.
Alshon Jeffery has been a disappointment to date and now draws a match-up with the Patriots. The teams playing him won't feel good about that and Jeffery is one of my favorite under the radar trade targets. He has had double-digit fantasy points in 5 of 7 games he has played this season but no big games yet. After this tough match-up against the Patriots, Alshon plays Miami, the Giants twice and the Redskins. This is the week his owners will feel most unsure and you can take advantage of that.
