Week 11 Starts

Running Back:

Le’Veon Bell vs. CLE.

-Bell made his owners proud last week, being heavily involved on the ground and through the air. The Browns defense is allowing the 2nd most fantasy points to RBs, which means that Bell is going to have another great week.

LeGarrette Blount vs. SF.

-LeGarrette Blount is literally carrying the Patriots to success this season. Last week he racked up 69 yards and 3 TDs against one of the better defenses in the league. This week he faces the worst run defense in the league that has allowed over 1,600 yards and 13 TDs on the ground.

Todd Gurley vs. MIA.

-Fantasy owners are definitely regretting drafting Gurley in the first round, but with the lack of talent on the LA roster defenses have been stacking the box to stop the lone weapon. There’s hope for a rebound in performance this week as the Rams play the Dolphins, who rank 29th against the run.

DeMarco Murray vs. IND.

-Murray is a machine. He is the second ranked RB this year and has a chance to slide into the number one spot this week when he faces Indianapolis. The colts are allowing almost 115 rushing yards a game, which bodes well for Murray.

Ezekiel Elliott vs. BAL.

-I’m kind of tired of writing about Elliott, but I will continue to do so until he proves me wrong. This week he will have a big test against Baltimore, who has been very good against the run. In my opinion, the Dallas offense relies too heavily on Zeke for him to have a bad fantasy day. If he doesn’t have success on the ground, he’ll likely be involved in the passing game.
