Are you not entertained???

Fantasy football week 11. It's be the craziest year I can remember, but are we not entertained?

The trade deadline in your league should’ve come and gone by now. Hopefully you’ve made yourself into a contender, if not, then prepared yourself for next year in keeper leagues. I truly hope none of you had a fire sale and helped others who are still in it. I have Zeke on a team where I am out of it and refused to trade him because no matter what I would’ve gotten in return, it would make the other team that much better in the playoffs. I had to keep him. That may be an extreme case, but hopefully your commissioner has rules in place to prohibit that.

Each week I choose a DST to stream and have been successful 8/10 times this year. Week 11 will be no different. I pick from a team owned in less than 50% of ESPN leagues. This week I’m going with Bills, owned in just 23% of leagues. There is a good chance Philip Rivers is hurt and cannot play. On top of that, teams traveling from west to east traditionally do not fare well. This game is a must win for both teams playoff hopes. Buffalo will pound the ball as Nathan Peterman will get his first NFL start. I see this being a low scoring game and Buffalo can come up with a few turnovers as well.

On with the rankings...has there ever been a harder season to predict fantasy? No one owns a crystal ball, but throw conventional wisdom out the window for most of this season. I can’t think of a more difficult year since I started playing fantasy football.
