Start/Sit Week 11


Start
Kirk Cousins (vs Green Bay)
Cousins is hot coming into this week’s matchup against Green Bay and it should only get better going up against a Packers team that has been awful defensively the last few weeks due to a myriad of injuries on that side of the ball. Green Bay could be without Clay Matthews, Micah Hyde, and Sam Shields.
James Starks (vs Washington)
Starks returned last week and scored a touchdown picking up where he left off. His knee should allow for a bigger work load. With a weak backfield, Starks should get the majority of the work load. Green Bay needs to get back to the run at least a little bit, he is a solid flex play for week 11.
Tyreek Hill (vs Tampa Bay)
Jeremy Maclin is likely to be out again this week. Although Alex Smith isn't going to a huge day, the passes have to go somewhere. If Hill can get the high volume targets like he did last week he will have huge upside. With all the byes this week he's a solid flex option.
Martellus Bennett (vs SF)
With Rob Gronkowski now a for sure OUT this week, Bennett becomes factor at tight end for the Patriots.  With a very favorable matchup with the 49ers, Bennett is a top tight end this week.
Sit 
Alex Smith (vs Tampa Bay)
Alex Smith has a decent matchup against Tampa Bay on Sunday. Due to his season track record he just can't be trusted. The conservative offense of the Chiefs simply doesn't correlate to great QB fantasy stats. He will also be without his full compliment of weapons,
Thomas Rawls (vs Philly)
You would think with Seattle cutting Michael's this week that would open up Rawls to get more touches. I wouldn't count on it. CJ Prosise has been and will likely continue to be. On top of that it looks as though everything is going to go through Russell Wilson. 
Victor Cruz/Sterling Shephard (vs Chicago)
Let me start by saying this. Odell Beckham is still the only Giant receiver getting consistent targets and is the only one who should be in lineups this week. Even though he is expected to play this week against Chicago, Cruz is still dealing with an ankle injury. The fact the he's expected to play also makes rookie Sterling Shephard a less enticing play this week, even in a plus matchup against the Bears.
Zach Ertz (vs Seattle)
First thing, The Eagle are playing the Seattle Seahawks. That should be the first reason to sit Ertz this week. Secondly, Ertz suffered hamstring in practice earlier this week and if he plays he will be hindered by that. Unless you number one option is on a bye this week, Its best to look elsewhere.
