It’s that time of week, ladies and gentlemen! We will breakdown each of the outside matchups, as well as my 10 favorite matchups out of the slot. Then, below the charts in this article, I break down my four absolute favorite matchups by price in DFS, as well as likely ownership in seasonal formats. This article is critical for seasonal and daily players, as this will help you gain a competitive advantage when setting your lineups.

Remember, the No. 1 wide receiver doesn’t always matchup against the No. 1 cornerback. This isn’t a game of Madden! Seriously, it’s not!

Left WRRight CBAnalysis
J.J. Nelson ARIGareon Conley OAKChad Williams didn't play, but Nelson produced a similar stat line to what Williams would have put forth if he was healthy. Byron Leftwich is using his premier skill players with every opportunity he gets on offense, and Nelson just isn't one of those guys. The fourth-year receiver out of UAB shouldn't be owned in any league at this point.
Julio Jones ATLByron Jones DALYou're starting Julio in seasonal formats, there's no denying that. However, in DFS, there are far better options around his price, notably Michael Thomas , DeAndre Hopkins and Odell Beckham Jr. Simply put, start Jones in seasonal leagues, but fade in DFS cash games.
Michael Crabtree BALWilliam Jackson CINDespite being targeted more than John Brown , Crabtree's air yards are well below the latter, per The volume continues to be there for Crabtree each week, but if Joe Flacco were to miss this contest, I can't imagine Crabtree doing well running his intermediate routes with Robert Griffin or Lamar Jackson under center. Crabtree is a flex option this week, but I'm higher on Brown this week.
Devin Funchess   CARTeez Tabor DETTabor has allowed the fifth-most receiving yards in coverage over the last three weeks, and those 181 yards have come on nine catches! Tabor has been getting burned of late and Funchess will be a tough cover for the former Florida standout. Funchess has WR2 expectations in Week 11.
Taylor Gabriel   CHITrae Waynes MINGabriel is a sneaky good play this week. With Allen Robinson being shadowed by Xavier Rhodes , Gabriel gets to square off against Waynes, who has allowed a 100 percent catch rate (7-for-7) in his last two games.* If Matt Nagy attacks the right matchups, Gabriel could be in line for a big day, however, there is plenty of risk here.
A.J. Green CINJimmy Smith BALGreen might be able to play this weekend, and in DFS, you do not want to start Green in this matchup. However, given Green's ability on the field, if he is playing on Sunday, he needs to be in your starting lineup. Green at about 70 percent is better than whatever WR3 you were thinking about sticking in your flex. Monitor his status closely.
Amari Cooper DALRobert Alford ATLCooper is in a great spot against the Atlanta defense, as they have allowed fantasy points in bunches to opposing receivers, in fact, it's been at the third-highest rate on a per game basis in the league. Since joining his new club, Cooper is averaging 8.5 targets per game and while his 12.1 yards per reception is a bit underwhelming, he could exceed that in this matchup. Start Cooper with confidence in your seasonal leagues.
Courtland Sutton DENMichael Davis LACSutton didn't quite perform as well as expected in his last outing, but if the overall feeling on him is down, it shouldn't be. Sutton is line for 6+ targets and in Michael Davis ' last two games, he's allowed 10 receptions and a 105.0 passer rating when targeted.* If Sutton is available, add him, as he's poised for a big stretch run, starting with Week 11.
T.J. Jones DETDonte Jackson CARIn his rookie season, Jackson has been solid for the most part, but over the last three weeks, Jackson has allowed two touchdowns in coverage and a 124.4 passer rating when targeted. With Marvin Jones out of action, T.J. Jones should see a few extra looks, but not enough to warrant a starting spot in shallower formats.
Davante Adams   GBTre Flowers SEAAdams is in a great spot this week on Thursday Night Football, as Flowers has allowed a 142.6 passer rating when targeted and two touchdowns over his past three games.* Conversely, Adams has scored thrice in the past two games with 97 yards on 10 grabs. Adams is a WR1 yet again and a great start in any format.
DeAndre Hopkins HOUGreg Stroman WASHopkins is a target monster, and with Deshaun Watson under center, the star wideout has been more efficient with his targets compared to prior seasons. To keep it short, Hopkins has scored in each of his last four games, and he's averaging nearly nine targets per game during his scoring streak. He's a must start, just like every other week.
T.Y. Hilton INDMalcolm Butler TENThe more of Butler that Hilton sees will have a direct correlation on his Week 11 stat line. Butler has allowed a league-high seven touchdowns in coverage this season and while the Tennessee defense is playing well for the most part, Butler has been a weak link. With Andrew Luck at the helm, I'm all in on a low-end WR1 performance from Hilton in Week 11.
D.J. Chark JAXCoty Sensabaugh PITThe rookie out of LSU didn't produce much last week against the Colts, and Sensabaugh is a part of a Pittsburgh defense that has allowed the second-fewest fantasy points per game to opposing receivers over the last four weeks.* Chark has been hit-or-miss, and unfortunately, it's largely been a miss, with a few small hits. Leave Chark out of your lineups in Week 11.
Tyreek Hill   KCMarcus Peters LARHill is going to be owned in a ton of DFS lineups, and rightfully so. Peters has allowed six touchdowns in coverage this season, and he's routinely been burned this season, due to either just poor performance or he's playing hurt. Regardless, we take no pity on him when constructing our lineups! Start Hill and he has the upside to be the leading fantasy receiver this week.
Mike Williams LACBradley Roby DENIt's been a rapid decline for Mike Williams , as he is hardly used in the offense anymore, highlighted by a big fat zero against the Oakland Raiders. In fact, he hardly played in that contest. His five touchdowns on 18 receptions this year is great, but you're completely guessing if you're starting the second-year receiver out of Clemson. At this point in time, leave him out of your starting lineup until there is more consistent production.
Brandin Cooks  LARSteven Nelson KCNelson has been playing some better football of late, but the absence of Cooper Kupp should lead to a few additional targets Cooks' way. Per NFL Next Gen Stats, Cooks is seeing over one-third of the team's targeted air yards, and the Chiefs have had some problems defending the pass over the course of the season. The volume will be there and Cooks has at least 60 receiving yards in each of his last four games. Start Cooks.
Laquon Treadwell MINPrince Amukamara CHITreadwell has his role in the Minnesota offense, but it's not a large one. Even when Stefon Diggs misses a game, Treadwell can't get anything going with quarterback Kirk Cousins . Treadwell should only be owned in the deepest of seasonal leagues, and even then he isn't making the cut. Leave him out of your starting lineups until further notice.
Michael Thomas   NORasul Douglas PHIDue to some untimely injuries, the Eagles are paper thin in the secondary, and Thomas is white hot with quarterback Drew Brees . The two have connected for 20 on their last 23 attempts, and with the Eagles being a better run defense team, minus last week, Brees might have every opportunity to air it out this week. Start Thomas in all formats and don't think twice about it.
Bennie Fowler NYGCarlton Davis TBIt's a good matchup for Fowler against the Bucs, but he just doesn't get enough usage to be useful in any fantasy format. Leave him far, far away from your lineups.
Seth Roberts OAKBene' Benwikere ARIIn terms of passer rating allowed when targeted over the past two weeks, Benwikere has been Arizona's best corner. Now, he has been targeted the most, so he's had the most opportunities, but he's held up well, allowing less than nine yards per reception during this span.* Roberts typically occupies the slot, but will be forced out wide due to the absence of Jordy Nelson .
Nelson Agholor PHIMarshon Lattimore NOEvery New Orleans corner has struggled this season, and Lattimore is included in that statement. The second-year corner has allowed a 121.8 passer rating when targeted this season and two touchdowns.* Agholor was productive in his first matchup with Golden Tate on the field for the Eagles, and if he can continue to see five to seven targets from Carson Wentz per game, he can continue to be utilized as a flex option in deeper formats.
Antonio Brown   PITJalen Ramsey JAXSimply put, Brown is a great receiver and Ramsey is a great corner. However, you aren't benching Brown in any seasonal fantasy league you play in. Last year, against an overperforming Jacksonville defense, Brown caught 10 passes on 19 targets for 157 yards. He's matchup proof and any limitations for James Conner will likely lead to increased pass attempts for Ben Roethlisberger . Start Brown, don't be stupid.
Tyler Lockett   SEAJosh Jackson GBLockett leads the team in receptions, targets, yards and touchdowns amidst his breakout campaign. Russell Wilson has a near-perfect 157.9 passer rating when targeting Lockett, and over the last three weeks, Josh Jackson has posted a player grade, per Pro Football Focus, below 60.0 in two of three contests.* Start Lockett and don't look back.
Chris Godwin TBJanoris Jenkins NYGGodwin is a sneaky good play this week, well, as sneaky as he can be. Over the last three weeks, he's hauled in nearly 80 percent of his targets and he's moved the chains 10 times, second-most on the team during that span.* Jenkins has allowed the fourth-most receiving yards in the league this season, and despite ample mouths to feed in Tampa Bay, game script should be positive for the young receiver. Godwin is an excellent flex option in Week 11.
Corey Davis TENPierre Desir INDDesir hasn't been the Indianapolis corner to mess with this season, as he's allowed the second-lowest passer rating when targeted (81.4) on the team.* He's allowed just one touchdown in coverage, despite being targeted nearly five times per game.* Despite Desir's successes on the season, trust the volume Davis is receiving lately, and hope that Marcus Mariota plays like he did last week, and not the weeks prior.
Josh Doctson WASShareece Wright HOUIn his return to the lineup in Week 9, Wright allowed just three receptions on six targets for 45 yards, good for a 75.0 passer rating when targeted and 1.02 yards per coverage snap.* He also had an excellent touchdown-saving pass breakup on a go route to Denver's Courtland Sutton in that contest.  While Doctson is in flex territory with his two-game scoring streak, he's largely underwhelmed yet again this season.
Right WRLeft CBAnalysis
Christian Kirk ARIDaryl Worley OAKIn terms of DVOA, per Football Outsiders, the Raiders are the fifth-worst team on the passes to the offense's right side of the field, which just so happens to be where Kirk lines up more often than not. He's a distant third option in the passing attack, but it's encouraging that he's seeing targets (19 in last three games) in the new-look Byron Leftwich offense. Kirk's price tag has remained favorable in DFS, and in a plus matchup, Kirk makes for a nice GPP play.
Calvin Ridley ATLChidobe Awuzie DALDallas' pass defense has been pretty stout this season, holding opposing wide receivers to the third-fewest fantasy points per game. However, Byron Jones is the team's best corner, and he will be on Julio Jones , giving Ridley the premium matchup. Ridley hasn't been as exceptional in recent weeks, but he's the No. 2 target in the passing attack and has one of the better matchups on the field. I like Ridley for at least 50 receiving yards and a touchdown in Week 11.
John Brown BALDre Kirkpatrick CINKirkpatrick has allowed a 60 percent catch rate in his last two games, and just 0.96 yards per coverage snap during that span.* Per NFL Next Gen Stats, Brown's 35.68 percent share of team's air yards is the 10th-highest in all of football. At his price point in DFS, Brown is an excellent play in Week 11. In seasonal formats, he should be in your flex spot.
D.J. Moore CARDarius Slay DETThe Carolina passing defense has struggled at times this season, but the return of Slay should help. Moore's usage is slowly continuing to rise and the rookie receiver has big play ability within this offense. Funchess has the better matchup on paper, but Moore is an exciting young talent. He's a flex option this week, and in DFS, he's a perfect GPP play.
Allen Robinson   CHIXavier Rhodes MINRhodes will travel with Robinson in this contest, and this will definitely be one of the better WR/CB matchups over the weekend. Robinson is coming off a monster game (8-6-133-2), and even though he's dealing with a tough cover corner, he remains in the WR2 conversation in seasonal formats. In DFS, at his price point, there are better options to place in your lineup.
John Ross CINBrandon Carr BALAndy Dalton and John Ross have connected for nine receptions on 22 targets, which isn't great. Furthermore, there have been four interceptions when targeting Ross.* Not good at all. Carr has been solid this season, allowing a meager 68.9 passer rating when targeted this season.*
Michael Gallup DALDesmond Trufant ATLThe presence of Amari Cooper has capped Gallup's fantasy upside, leaving him largely unusable in most formats, and especially those who play DFS. Gallup has just one game with double-digit fantasy points this season. Even in a favorable matchup, Gallup is too risky of a play.
DaeSean Hamilton DENCasey Hayward LACNot a great matchup here for Hamilton, but he is a dynamic talent that warrants fantasy attention down the stretch run. However, for Week 11 and Week 11 only, Hamilton shouldn't be started in any format.
Kenny Golladay   DETJames Bradberry CARDon't be afraid of this Carolina defense whatsoever. They have allowed the second-most passing touchdowns in the league, but to the defense of these corners, it hasn't been on them as much. However, when Detroit gets in the red zone, Golladay will have a distinct size advantage over his competition, which will come in handy for quarterback Matthew Stafford . With Golladay scoring on a fade route in this matchup, start Golladay across the board.
Equanimeous St. Brown GBShaquil Griffin SEANo Randall Cobb opens the door for St. Brown to get some extended run in the offense. He'll likely be the third option behind Davante Adams and Marquez Valdes-Scantling , but it's a bit discouraging that Aaron Rodgers only has a 66.0 passer rating when targeting St. Brown.* The rookie receiver still has some appeal this week, but he's more in the flex realm than the WR2 conversation.
Demaryius Thomas HOUJosh Norman WASNorman has allowed the 13th-most receiving yards on the season and a 111.7 passer rating when targeted.* Coming off a bye week, Thomas had some extra time to learn the Houston playbook and log reps with quarterback Deshaun Watson . With DeAndre Hopkins attracting the attention of the entire secondary, Thomas should see numerous 1-on-1 matchups throughout the day, especially if Keke Coutee is creating mismatches out of the slot. I really like Thomas in GPPs this weekend.
Ryan Grant INDAdoree' Jackson TENJackson has been excellent yet again this season, allowing a 70.7 passer rating when targeted and a solid 1:2 TD/INT ratio in coverage.* Grant has been overshadowed in recent weeks by the plethora of tight ends being utilized in the offense, and in this tough matchup, Grant's outlook for Week 11 is bleak.
Donte Moncrief JAXJoe Haden PITDespite being amongst the league's most targeted corners over the last few weeks, Haden has stood tall, allowing a 62.2 passer rating when targeted and just 1.03 yards per coverage snap.* Moncrief remains a flex option, as he's averaging seven targets per game over his last three contests. He'll need a touchdown to produce for fantasy owners, making him a flex option this week.
Sammy Watkins   KCTroy Hill LARAssuming Watkins plays, he's a must start in this [likely] high-scoring affair. Hill has allowed three touchdowns over the last three weeks, tied for most in the league during that span, not to mention a perfect 158.3 passer rating allowed when targeted.* Monitor Watkins' health throughout the week, as he's in a great matchup if he's healthy and on the field in Week 11.
Tyrell Williams LACTramaine Brock DENBrock hasn't been a liability in coverage, but by no means has he been a blanket out there either. Williams' recent string of production has come at the expense of Mike Williams , but Tyrell Williams has four touchdowns over his last four games, including two efforts with over 100 receiving yards. From the Chargers' offense, Tyrell Williams has the biggest upside among that receiving crew.
Josh Reynolds LAROrlando Scandrick KCIn DFS particularly, it's hard not to get excited about Reynolds this week, but in season long formats, if you need receiver help or were a Cooper Kupp owner, Reynolds needs to be on your team. When on the field, he's proven effective, and could be a solid red zone threat for Jared Goff . In a high-scoring affair, Reynolds should see about seven targets, which is more than enough to return WR3 value.
Aldrick Robinson MINKyle Fuller CHIFuller has been excellent in coverage over the last three weeks, allowing a 33 percent catch rate and a measly 46.0 passer rating when targeted.* Sure, one of those receptions went for a touchdown, but with the current state of the Minnesota offense, Robinson won't see more than a few targets. He can be left out of your starting lineups.
Tre'Quan Smith   NOChandon Sullivan PHII wouldn't expect too much from Sullivan out wide, as he hasn't been tested and has just nine coverage snaps to his name in 2018.* Smith has a size and speed advantage over Sullivan, and Drew Brees is going to have a field day against this depleted Philadelphia secondary and Smith will be involved in the scoring frenzy. BOOK IT.
Odell Beckham Jr. NYGBrent Grimes TBBeckham could be the highest scoring receiver in a PPR format this week, plain and simple. Tampa Bay has been brutal on defense all season long and they have allowed the most passing touchdowns in the league. Beckham continues to see double-digit targets and coming off a two touchdown performance on Monday Night Football, it's hard to not be excited about Beckham in Week 11. Start him everywhere and make him a staple in your cash game lineups.
Brandon LaFell OAKPatrick Peterson ARIThe volume has been there for LaFell, but with the majority of his routes coming against Patrick Peterson , the veteran receiver is an easy fade in Week 11. Attacking Peterson in your lineups is lighting a win, or money, on fire. Willingly.
Alshon Jeffery PHIEli Apple NOPer Football Outsiders, New Orleans' team DVOA on passes to the right side of the field have been highly successful for the offense, and Jeffery will be the next man up on this side against the Saints. Jeffery has caught just four passes each of the last two weeks, but he has seen at least eight targets in four of his last five opportunities. He's dealt with some tough matchups of late, but in his last two favorable matchups he had (Panthers, Giants), he caught 15 passes on 22 targets for 162 yards with three touchdowns. Buy into Jeffery's stock in Week 11.
James Washington   PITTyler Patmon JAXI feel like a broken record here, but Washington just isn't involved enough to warrant any fantasy attention. The offense is funneled through about three, maybe four guys, and Washington is stuck on the outside looking in.
David Moore SEAJaire Alexander GBMoore's usage has slightly dipped in recent weeks, and even when the looks are there, the production has been lackluster. He's accrued just 32 receiving yards on 10 targets over the past two weeks. He scored four touchdowns in the three games prior to Weeks 9 and 10, but has been quite disappointing of late.
Mike Evans   TBB.W. Webb NYGEvans' 2.23 yards per route run is pretty good and the Giants' pass defense has been exposed at times this season. With Evans averaging nearly 17 yards per catch this season, it's hard not to get excited about him in a good matchup against Webb. Start Evans with low-end WR1/high-end WR2 expectations.
Cameron Batson TENNate Hairston INDIf you want to throw on Indy, press your luck with Hairston, as he has allowed the most receiving yards (344), most touchdowns (3), and highest passer rating when targeted (140.4) amongst the three starting corners for the Colts.* The volume hasn't quite been there, but Batson is a super contrarian dart throw in GPPs this weekend.
Michael Floyd WASKareem Jackson HOUFloyd has been atrocious this season, catching just three of eight targets. Furthermore, his quarterback has posted an ugly passer rating of just 51.6 when targeting Floyd this season. The Houston defense will bend, but not oftentimes break, but even so, Floyd is out of the question in Week 11. Leave him far away from your starting lineups.

Now, here are my 10 favorite matchups in the slot in Week 11.

Slot WRSlot CBAnalysis
Adam Thielen MINBryce Callahan CHIThielen gets down the field out of the slot, positing an exceptional 2.21 yards per route run in the slot.* Thielen lost his 100-yard streak against the Lions, but he's still found the end zone in six straight games. Simply put, start Thielen and don't look back.
Robert Woods LARKendall Fuller KCOver the last five weeks, only two corners have allowed more receiving yards in slot coverage than Fuller.* With Cooper Kupp 's injury, Woods will move into the slot, and on 29 targets out the slot this season, Woods has a 79.3 reception percentage, two touchdowns and 2.00 yards per route run.* Woods is closer than many think to being the top slot option in Week 11.
Emmanuel Sanders DENDesmond King LACSanders only has three touchdowns on the season unfortunately, but he's been very productive for the Broncos and fantasy owners alike. He's averaging 12.6 yards per reception and will once again be Case Keenum 's favorite target on Sunday. Start Sanders with WR2 expectations.
JuJu Smith-Schuster PITRonnie Harrison JAXDue to some injuries in the secondary, Harrison will play the lion's share of the reps in slot coverage for the Jags in Week 11. Good luck covering JuJu, the second-most dynamic receiver on the Steelers. I really like JuJu in this matchup and he has every opportunity to put up luxury WR2 numbers.
Keenan Allen LACChris Harris Jr. DENHarris is a solid corner, and while I typically don't go out of my way to target him, we have to trust Allen's volume and role in the Los Angeles passing offense. He's averaging nearly 10 targets and 90.5 receiving yards per game since his bye week, making him a low-end WR1 this weekend.
Golden Tate P.J. Williams NOWilliams has allowed the most receiving yards out of the slot over the last three weeks, and Tate is a dynamic slot receiver.* He needs to increase his rapport with his new quarterback Carson Wentz , but this matchup is a ripe opportunity for a big day for Philly's new slot weapon. Start Tate everywhere.
Larry Fitzgerald ARILeon Hall OAKHall has only been targeted a handful of times in slot coverage over the past three weeks, but the four receptions he has allowed have gone for 85 yards, and 66 of those came after the catch.* Fitzgerald is getting plenty of work from quarterback Josh Rosen , and when the ball is in his hands, he's an incredibly tough runner. Fitzgerald should end the week within the top 20 players at his position.
Tyler Boyd CINTavon Young BALBaltimore's outside corners have been tough on opposing receivers this season, but Young has been rather generous. In slot coverage this season, Young has allowed a catch rate of 75 percent, a 135.1 passer rating when targeted and three touchdowns on 21 receptions.* Boyd makes for a great play yet again in all formats.
Sterling Shepard NYGJavien Elliott TBSlot receivers against the Bucs have great success, and while Elliott has been better than M.J. Stewart , he's allowed a 100 percent catch rate and a 102.8 passer rating when targeted this season.* Shepard was quiet last week, but he did find the end zone, so that's somewhat encouraging. He is a solid flex option in PPR formats.
Doug Baldwin SEABashuad Breeland GBIt hasn't been the year for Baldwin that many people were expecting. He's second on the team in targets, receptions and yards, but perhaps the most perplexing stat of them all is the fact that Baldwin has yet to find the end zone! Not sure if this is the week he scores, however, as Breeland has been pretty stout in slot coverage over the last three weeks. Baldwin has fallen to flex status.


Tyreek Hill vs. Marcus Peters

This one shouldn’t be surprising, as we will routinely target Marcus Peters on a weekly basis. It just so happens this week that one of the biggest game breakers will be opposite the struggling cornerback. Peters has allowed six touchdowns in coverage and his struggles this season are well-documented.* Only three receivers have more receiving yards over the last three weeks than Hill and his 18.3 yards per reception during that span is so enticing against a gambling cornerback like Peters.* Hill is elite this week. He’s a lock for a touchdown this week.

Michael Thomas vs. Rasul Douglas

Michael Thomas has 74 more receiving yards than the next receiver over the last three weeks, and his three touchdowns during that span are quite enticing as well.* By Pro Football Focus’ receiving grade, he’s been the best receiver in the league over the last past three weeks, hauling in 25 of 29 targets.* On the other hand, only 14 cornerbacks have allowed more receiving yards over the last three weeks than Douglas.* Quarterback and future Hall of Famer Drew Brees should have a field day against this defense, so don’t be surprised when Thomas goes for about 150 in this contest.He’s a lock for a touchdown this week.


Kenny Golladay vs. James Bradberry

Since the team’s bye in Week 4, only Robert Alford and Marcus Peters have allowed more receiving yards than Carolina’s Bradberry. During that same span, he’s been targeted the second-most times in the league, tied for second-most touchdowns allowed and first in receptions.* YIKES! He’s been dealing with top receivers more often than not, and with Marvin Jones likely limited in some capacity in this contest, Bradberry covering Golladay would be a dream come true for fantasy owners. I expect Bradberry to be covering Golladay in this contest, and that means Golladay is going to have an excellent game.

Bargain Bin

John Brown vs. Dre Kirkpatrick

Over the last four weeks, Kirkpatrick has allowed the second-most receiving yards on the team and a 103.5 passer rating when targeted.* Furthermore, his player grades by week have decreased of late. After posting a 76.1 defensive grade in Week 5 against the Dolphins, he’s topped 60.0 just once, and none in his past three games.* Brown occupies over one-third of the team’s targeted air yards, and in fact, he ranks in the top 10 in the NFL in terms of percent share of team’s air yards, per NFL Next Gen Stats. Brown is very cheap in DFS and will likely appear in many winning lineups.
