Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens
Week 11 Stats: 150 Passing YDS, 117 Rushing YDS, 1 INT, 15.7 PTS
Lamar Jackson impressed in his first game at the helm of the Baltimore Ravens attack, leading the way at home to defeat the Cincinnati Bengals. While the amount of rushing attempts likely will not continue, he’s an interesting streaming option this week against a horrid Oakland defense.
Gus Edwards, Baltimore Ravens
Week 11 Stats: 115 Rushing YDS, 1 TD, 19.5 PTS
Coming out of the blue, Gus Edwards put the league on notice on Sunday Afternoon as the main bell-cow in John Harbaugh’s offense despite having a healthy Alex Collins available. Since the crop of top fantasy running backs is so slim, Edwards is a must add and a high floor flex option this weekend against the Raiders.
Tre’Quan Smith, New Orleans Saints
Week 11 Stats: 10 Receptions, 157 Receiving YDS, 1 TD, 31.7 PTS
Man oh man, I was THIS close to picking up Tre’Quan Smith and flexing him against a putrid Eagles secondary but his zero target mark in Week 10 scared me away. The rookie wideout was targeted 12 times against the Eagles and hauled in 10 of them, stamping his name as the highest scoring New Orleans Saint fantasy-wise in Week 11. This offense can sustain a second wideout and Smith fits the bill.
D.J. Moore, Carolina Panthers
Week 11 Stats: 7 Receptions, 157 Receiving YDS, 1 TD, 28.7 PTS
Unfortunately, I am no longer rolling with the Funchess. Devin Funchess has been an utter disappointment in what I expected to be his breakout year as Cam Newton’s top target. Turns out that it’s former Maryland Terrapin DJ Moore, who was absolutely electric against the Lions’ defense and has developed a stellar connection with his signal caller.
