The weekend has arrived once again as we all start to get excited for another action packed weekend of fantasy football. For season long fantasy owners these next few weeks are critical with playoffs just around the corner. Meanwhile daily fantasy owners continue to cash in weekly on sites like FanDuel and Draftkings.
All and all it doesn’t matter whether your in a season long fantasy football league or looking to cash in on some daily fantasy football action we all need to find a few of those fantasy sleepers to help put us over the edge. This is especially true for daily fantasy owners looking to save some salary cap space while looking to take home one of those big GPP Cash Payouts.
One running back tandem that we suggest monitoring closely is the one that is taking place is the situation with the Seattle Seahawks. After a dominating performance by C.J. Prosise last weekend the team elected to release Christian Michael while expecting to get Thomas Rawls back this weekend.
For us we suggest monitoring the status of Rawls through the morning on Sunday to see if they have him active. If they do we suggest looking to build one lineup around him and one lineup around Prosise as we like the chances that whoever takes the bulk of the carries will put up some solid fantasy numbers. Prosise carries the better salary cap number at just $4,600 but Rawls is still a bargain at $5,100, according to FanDuel prices.
With all that said here are some key Fantasy Sleepers for week 11 of the 2016 NFL Season tagged with FanDuel prices.
Fantasy Sleepers – Quarterbacks
Alex Smith, Kansas City Chiefs: The quarterback position is one that is nearly impossible to really find a fantasy sleeper unless you can predict a quarterback going out on the first play of the game. Now that being said Smith is more of a fantasy bargain this weekend costing just $6,700 while facing a Tampa Bay Buccaneers team that ranks 23rd against the pass and 28th overall on defense.
Fantasy Sleepers – Running Back
C.J. Prosise/Thomas Rawls, Seattle Seahawks: Now for us we really like Porsise this weekend as he is threat both in the run game as well out of the backfield. While the Eagles rank in the top half of the NFL in defense the team has allowed a pair of touchdown passes to the running back position this season to go along with 47 receptions.
Kenneth Dixon, Baltimore Ravens: We have been in on him a few times over the past few weeks but we really like him this weekend despite a difficult matchup against a solid run defense. For us we are looking at Dixon as more of a threat in the passing game as the team looks to get creative to put points up on the board.
Other fantasy sleeper running backs for week 11 include Jeremy Langford (Deep Fantasy Sleeper, Not sure if Jordan Howard is or is not healthy) and Dwayne Washington (Deep Fantasy Sleeper, Monitor Theo Riddicks health situation).

Fantasy Sleepers – Wide Receivers
Adam Humphries, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: Now Humphries might not be one of those sleepers sitting in the $4k mark he is still a great fantasy sleeper $5,300. The Buccaneers wide receiver has emerged as the teams number two receiver after losing Vincent Jackson to injury. This has shown up over the past two weeks as he has been targeted 15 times while pulling in 10 catches. This weekend he has a true shot to put up some solid fantasy numbers against a Kansas City Chiefs defense that has allowed 1,665 receving yards and 11 touchdowns to opposing receivers.
Kendall Wright, Tennessee Titans: Looking at this weekends AFC South Showdown between the Titans and the Indianapolis Colts one thing stands out and that is this should be a high scoring contest. This opens up the opportunities in the passing game espicialy for someone like Wright who has a touchdown in two of the teams last three games.
Other fantasy sleeper wide receivers for week 11 include Phillip Dorsett, Marqise Lee and Anquan Boldin.
Fantasy Sleepers – Tight Ends
Charles Clay, Buffalo Bills: We like both Clay and Jesse James as cheap options at the tight end position. For us though we like Clay despite his lack of fantasy numbers solely based on the fact that he has been targeted at least five times in all but two of the Bills games this season.
Other fantasy sleeper tight ends for week 11 include Jesse James and Tony Moeaki.
