Here's some advice for your Fantasy team as the NFL enters its 11th week of action.
The Philadelphia Eagles enter Week 11 rested and ready to go thanks to their bye week. Up next on the schedule is a rematch of Super Bowl 57 against the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday Night Football. Fantasy managers will have their eyes set on this one as star quarterbacks Jalen Hurts and Patrick Mahomes lead loaded offenses.
Those same managers are the ones tasked with making crucial decisions on who to put in their lineup and who to keep on the bench. Let's dive into some start/sit options for this exciting primetime battle.
Start: DeVonta Smith, WR (Philadelphia Eagles)
A case can be made for any pro on Philly's offense to post a standout performance on Monday night, but history favors wide receiver DeVonta Smith. Smith has faced off against the Chiefs twice in his young NFL career and has logged at least 100 yards on seven receptions in each of those contests.
That has to excite Fantasy managers, especially since Smith comes off the bye week on a bit of a hot streak. The 25-year-old has hauled in all 10 of his targets for 150 yards and two touchdowns over the last two games. Hurts trusts Skinny Batman to be victorious when thrown jump balls against anyone.
While there's no denying that Kansas City's secondary has stepped up this year, the team has still allowed at least 80 yards or a touchdown to an opposing wide receiver in eight of nine games. Look for Smith to take advantage of the attention A.J. Brown draws and exploit matchups for steady gains.
