2022 Week 11 Fantasy Football Sleepers
🚨 Heads Up 🚨 They are sleepers. They will not mimic my ranking 100%. It is chasing upside and often carries more risk.
Likely starter: Daniel Jones, NYG — Jones is back again after finishing his QB13, as the better matchup this week. Jones didn’t run as much in Weeks 3, 4 and 7, but he threw for two touchdowns for just the third time. Five quarterbacks scored 24.7+ and five quarterbacks threw two or more touchdowns. The Lions have allowed four games of 40+ rushing yards to a QB, including Justin Fields’ bananas Week 10.
Likely Start: Brian Robinson, WSH — While Antonio Gibson appears to be reborn in this timeshare role, don’t overlook Robinson for a possible Week 10 repeat. The Eagles matchup was not favorable, yet Robinson fought his way into the end zone. He won’t have to struggle much this week, as the Texans have allowed the most FPPG to rushers with a league-high 1,407 rushing yards (next-closest 1,228) and 13 rushing touchdowns.
Hail Mary Start: Corderell Patterson and Tyler Algier, ATL — with a combined 38 rushing yards in Week 10 — giving up 23 total yards to Allgeier’s -17 receiving yards — could be tough to start either or both. Fortunately, the Bears have struggled to run out of the end zone, allowing 12 rushing touchdowns, including three games with multiple rushing scores.
Likely start: Courtland Sutton, Dane — Even if Jerry Jewdy could play this week, Sutton deserves a start because of receiver thinness due to byes and injuries. This offense has been hard to watch for most, led by Russell Wilson, but could the Raiders be the cure. Sutton and Judy both scored against them in Week 4, and the Raiders have allowed 10 double-digit wideout scores and eight touchdowns this year, including a nice showing in his return to Matt Ryan.
Likely starter: Josh Palmer, LAC — Malik Willis The Chiefs have allowed a double-digit score to a wideout in every game outside of the Titans game, with four of the teammates’ games exceeding 10 fantasy points. Palmer is back in the game, as was DeAndre Carter last week, but Carter’s upside depends on Keenan Allen returning. Palmer can start either way.
Hail Mary Start: DJ Moore, Carr — As mentioned This week’s waiver concerns, Moore is probably toasting Baker Mayfield, but that’s why he’s playing the Hail Mary right now. The Ravens have played well of late, but every receiver with 9+ targets against the Ravens has put up at least 8.5 fantasy points with an average of 11.8 targets, 114 yards and four total touchdowns (and 18.0 FPPG). Of course, it’s up to Mayfield to make sure it doesn’t look like a dance.
Hail Mary Sturt: Greg Dulcich, Dane — Back to the Broncos, and I know, putting your trust in multiple/teams is asking a lot. The Raiders didn’t give up a ton to tight ends, but Gerald Everett, Zach Ertz and Travis Kelce all had great games… especially Kelce (30.0 points). The rest of the opposing tight ends are mediocre, yet Geoff Swaim, Jordan Akins, Taysom Hill and Kylen Granson all had 7.7+ points. Dulcich was disappointing last week, but he has 21 targets in four games, 17 of those targets for 12-182-1 and 30.2 points in his first three games.
Fun with ranking!
The best bullies in movies and TV
Thanks to @_jds_jds for this idea. I joked that Richard White took Kandri Diggs’ lunch money in Germany and he responded by asking for the best TV/Movie bullies of all time. Sure, it’s very satisfying to see the bullies make their appearance, but let’s get them out (pun intended).
- Biff Tannen, Back to the Future — When you think “religious,” there’s probably no character that comes to mind faster than Biff.
- Vegeta, Dragon Ball Z — Before redeeming himself by sacrificing his life (spoiler) against Majin Buu, Vegeta was the original bully of the Dragon Ball Z characters, who still occasionally bullied them even when teaming up with them, and seems to have turned his corner in the Cell Saga, where Jealousy is his again. Get the best. Arguably the best DBZ (and Super) character.
- Johnny Lawrence, The Karate Kid — Honestly, you could argue John Criss is the true bully mastermind — especially if you’ve seen Cobra Kai — but Lawrence was the classic ’80s movie bully, posturing and all.
- Dayo, Friday — The most influential bully of all time? Chain and bike stolen.
- Nelson Muntz, The Simpsons – Likeable and hateful at the same time.
- Joffrey Baratheon, Game of Thrones — There is another push with a shorter rein and, of course, a more celebrated death with more impact?
- Eric Cartman, South Park — Few people balance bully, dude, funny and outrageous better than Cartman.
- Shooter McGavin, Happy Gilmore — I mean, the guy eats pieces of $#@% for breakfast!
- Draco Malfoy, Harry Potter – even yelled bully in his face.
- Roger Klotz, Doug — Roger is now 45 years old. Returning to school multiple times, he is older than Doug and his friends and enjoys being the town bully. The guy would just pop Doug in to tell him he was sucking or torturing him.
- Flash Thompson, Spider-Man stuff — Peter constantly hates and bullies Parker, but like some on the list, he’s freed by befriending Peter after he finds Spider-Man and then Agent Venom.
- Fred O’Banion, shocked and confused — That paddle. That’s all.
- Regina George, Mean Girls – Such a terrible character that even after revenge you won’t feel bad for him.
- White Goodman, dodgeball — still uses a lot of GIFs (touch, go ahead do your jokes Mr. Jokey, and more, including…)
- S Merrill, stand by me – Tried to kill a kid. I want to say…
- Angelica Pickles, Rugrats — She went on most adventures, but Angelica was also a spiteful bully among the other Rugrats, partly the oldest, partly worse because of her voice.
- Mr. Barnes, Simpson — a rich oppressor of power plant employees and sometimes the entire town of Springfield.
- Pete, stupid thing — later became Goofy’s friend in the A Goofy movie, but was Goofy’s terror and Christmas Ghost in Disney’s A Christmas Carol.
- Candace Flynn, Phineas and Ferb — I’ve never seen the show, but fiance wanted her to make the top 20.
- O’Doyles, Billy Madison — A random car accident takes out all of the bullied generation.
