Alex the Great’s Week 11 Fantasy Football Recap

Well, it’s official. The trade deadline has passed for fantasy leagues. These are the teams that fantasy players will ride out the rest of the season with.

Hopefully teams sold-high on some players and looked to optimize their player match-ups in the playoffs ahead. Yet there is still more to be done.

Now is the time teams should look to double up on defense and kickers. Shed some of that dead weight at the end of your bench and look for great defensive matchups for weeks 14, 15, 16. This past week there were five defenses that scored at least 22 points or more in PPR scoring. Those are league winning numbers. If you can pick the right defense and kicker match-ups in the playoffs, it just might make the difference.

Don’t sleep on the waiver wire. Last week’s recommendation of Samaje Perine proved worthy as he rushed the ball 23 times for 117 yards and a score. With the unfortunate loss to fellow pass-catching running back Chris Thompson, Perine is slated to be the Redskins’ premiere work-horse feature back on Thanksgiving.

Josh Doctson of the Washington Redskins looks to be another emerging star as we enter the back-end of the regular season. Doctson caught four-of-seven targets for a career-high 81 yards. The sophomore wide-out seems to be getting on the same page with quarterback Kirk Cousins. With fellow receiver Terrelle Pryor heading to the injured reserve, Doctson will get a few more targets and emerge as an every-week useable asset.

Cleveland Browns’ wide out Corey Coleman returned from the IR in Week 11 in an impressive fashion. Coleman caught six of his 11 targets for 80 yards against a very tough Jacksonville defense. Coleman immediately emerged as the team’s number one wide-out upon his return and will look to build on that workload in Week 12. He is worth the add.
