Cincinnati Bengals



Joe Burrow (Start)

Joe Burrow gets a great matchup to get over his slump as he plays a reeling Raiders squad. The Raiders defense has allowed the sixth-most TDs (17) to opposing QBs. I look for Burrow to break out once again in this game and take advantage of a weakened secondary with his plethora of weapons. Burrow goes back to being a QB1 the week against the Raiders.


Running Backs

Joe Mixon (Start), Samaje Perine (Sit)


Joe Mixon is a bonafide stud this week and a must-have in your lineup. The Raiders have struggled as of late against opposing RBs, they’ve given up back-to-back top 12 performances against backup running backs. That tells you a lot about the vulnerability of this defense. Look for Mixon to be the guy you drafted, an RB1 this week. Samaje Perine has taken a back seat as of late, while I do think he gets back into the rotation this week. I won’t be starting him or flexing him in this one.


Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

Jamar Chase (Start), Tee Higgins (Start), Tyler Boyd (Sit), CJ Uzomah (Start)

Don’t get cute and start both Jamar Chase and Tee Higgins. While the Raiders have been pretty good against the big play this year, but they still had trouble keeping Tyreek Hill in check. Chase is the big play guy on the Bengals and should have no issue getting open against Raiders. Lock Chase in as a WR1 in Week 11. Higgins has 29 targets in the last three games, so yea I’m going to plug him in this game as a WR2 and be very happy with it. C.J. Uzomah is going to be a start for me this week. The reason why? Here it is, The Raiders have given up the second-most fantasy points (11.5) to tight ends and I think that continues in Week 11. That being said I’m going to say Uzomah is a TE1 this week, leaving Tyler Boyd as the odd man out and a player to sit.


Las Vegas Raiders



Derek Carr (Start)

Derek Carr much like Joe Burrow needs to hit the reset button and get back on track. A couple of weeks ago this would’ve been a terrible matchup for the Raiders, but since a Week 8 loss to the Jets the Bengals’ defense has looked beatable. Allowing two top 12 QB performances, including Mike White’s QB2 week. This is Carr’s chance to prove the Raiders are a real playoff contender and that he’s the face of the franchise. I’m starting Carr in this game and expecting a back and forth game that brings out the best in both QBs. Start Carr as a low-end QB1/high-end QB2.


Running Backs

Josh Jacobs (Start), Kenyan Drake (Flex)

Josh Jacobs and Kenyan Drake are getting a defense that as I mentioned it has been more exploitable as of late. The Bengals have given up RB1 and RB3 performances in Week 8 and 9 respectively.  Jacobs has a great chance to break out in this game and if they use drake like they were in Week 6-9. One thing you got to love with Jacobs going forward is he’s getting involved in the receiving game, averaging 4 targets/game over the past three games. Lock in Jacobs as a RB2 start and Drake should be a good flex play.


Wide Receivers and Tight Ends

Darren Waller (Start), Hunter Renfrow (Start), Bryan Edwards (Sit), DeSean Jackson (Sit)


Hunter Renfrow is averaging 9 targets, 7 receptions, 47.5 yards, and a TD in the past two weeks. Renfrow is just the guy, if the Raiders need offense they give it to him. That’s why he’s a WR2 in PPR and WR3/flex in other formats, and he’s a start every week because he utilizes all of his opportunities. Darren Waller, even though he hasn’t lived up to his hype is still a player that can take over a game and you can’t sit him, he’s a TE1/flex. Bryan Edwards is a massive boom/bust player and if your looking for someone to get you over your projections then plug him in. I’ll personally sit him till I see him consistently perform. DeSean Jackson is the dartboard throw, because you saw that they want to use him. That fumble though iced him for pretty much the rest of the game, if he gets a go in this game it’ll be strictly taking the top off the defense. So that’ll straddle him with Edwards as a boom/bust play, and like Edwards, but I’ll sit him until I see more.
