Start/sit advice for Week 11 in IDP leagues
It’s that time of week again when we take a look at the positional matchup data in order to make those crucial start-sit decisions for our IDP leagues. With 10 weeks of data under our belt we can start to lean quite heavily on those stats when making our last-minute decisions, but equally so, you’ll want to cast an eye at our projected tackle totals too. The Seahawks-Eagles game in particular stands out, most notably because of the fantasy-relevant linebackers in action, but it also bodes well for the safeties who get on the field, such as Kam Chancellor and Malcolm Jenkins.
As always, if you want more specific advice, please don’t be afraid to send me a message on Twitter @RossMilesNFL.
Start: Calais Campbell, Arizona Cardinals
Campbell has been an IDP stalwart for several years; it feels like he’s been a DL1 since I started playing fantasy football. He’s on course to meet that mark once again in 2016, and Week 11 offers him his best matchup of the season to date, against the Vikings. Minnesota has come unstuck following a 5-0 start, and since Week 6 their offensive line has been responsible for nine sacks (fifth-most), 12 hits (fifth-most) and 35 hurries (17th-most), so Campbell, who has only managed three sacks so far this season, will be looking to add a few more to that tally. He has the potential to be a top-five D-line play this week, while OLB Chandler Jones makes moderate appeal in big-scoring leagues despite being classified as a linebacker.
