Streaming Kickers and D/STs for Fantasy Football Week 11

Week 11 is finally here, so let’s dive right into the best kickers and D/STs to stream in fantasy for Week 11.

As a reminder, eligible kickers and defenses for this column can not be rostered in more than 50% of leagues, per FantasyPros’ rostership data. All stats are credited to TruMedia unless stated otherwise.

Top Streaming Kickers for Week 11

Greg Zuerlein, NYJ, at New England

  • Rostered in 5.1% of leagues
  • Zuerlein is seventh in fantasy points among kickers.
  • He just had a bye.
  • He’s scored more than eight fantasy points in six of nine games this season.
  • The Patriots have allowed the fifth-most fantasy points to kickers this season.
  • Although, Zuerlein only scored four points against them in Week 8.
  • Prior to Week 8, every kicker scored more than eight points against New England.
  • The Jets are averaging the 19th-most points per game, yet have the 14th-most red zone scoring attempts per game.
  • They also have the 13th-highest touchdown rate in the red zone, though that rate is among the third-worst over the last three games.
  • New York relies on Zuerlein enough to make him a viable streaming target.

Robbie Gould, SF, at Arizona

  • Rostered in 42% of leagues
  • Gould is only 21st in fantasy points among kickers.
  • However, he is averaging the third-most points during the last four weeks.
  • His production from Weeks 7-10: 14 points, seven points, bye week, 10 points.
  • The 49ers acquired Christian McCaffrey ahead of Week 7.
  • The Cardinals have allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to kickers this season.
  • They’ve only allowed more than eight fantasy points once in the last three weeks, though.
  • The Cardinals have the allowed third-most points per game this season.
  • Only the Lions have allowed more points at home this season.
  • The 49ers are tied for the most red zone scoring attempts over the last three games.
  • Yet, they’ve only scored a touchdown on 50% of those trips, which is below the league average.
  • This is an indoor game.
  • San Francisco’s healthy offense has been good, but not great enough to help Gould get to the red zone.

Cameron Dicker, LAC, vs. Kansas City

  • Rostered in 6.3% of leagues
  • In two games as a Charger, Dicker has eight and 12 fantasy points, respectively.
  • In three games this season (one as an Eagle in Week 5), Dicker is 7/7 in field goals and 5/5 in extra points.
  • The Chiefs have allowed the 14th-most fantasy points to kickers this season.
  • That includes three games of more than 11 fantasy points.
  • As a bonus, the Chargers have scored more than 24 points in each of their last four games against Kansas City.
  • As another bonus, Vegas projects this to be one of the highest-scoring games of the week.
  • This is an indoor game.
  • Chargers coach Brandon Staley said Monday that Dustin Hopkins is likely a week out from returning.
  • Still, whichever Chargers kicker plays is worth a start, thanks to the potential scoring in this game.

Top Streaming D/STs for Week 11

New York Jets D/ST at New England

  • Rostered in 11.1% of leagues
  • New York just had a bye, so naturally, they’re available in most leagues.
  • The Jets’ D/ST is fifth in fantasy points among D/STs.
  • They’ve scored more than 10 fantasy points in five of their last six games.
  • That includes 10 fantasy points against the Patriots in Week 8.
  • That was also the only game they allowed 22 points since Week 3.
  • New York has an interception in all but two games this season.
  • They also have multiple sacks in all but two games this season.
  • New England has allowed the eighth-most fantasy points to opposing D/STs this season.
  • They have allowed more than eight fantasy points to opposing D/STs in each of their last three games.
  • Mac Jones has an interception in all but one game this season and has yet to score more than one touchdown in any game.
  • Vegas currently projects this as one of the lowest-scoring games of Week 11.
  • If they’re available still, Jets D/ST is a top priority.

Washington Commanders D/ST at Houston

  • Rostered in 39.3% of leagues
  • Commanders D/ST is 13th in fantasy points among D/STs.
  • They just scored 17 fantasy points against the Eagles.
  • Washington’s defense hasn’t allowed more than 21 points since Week 4.
  • That stretch includes Green Bay, Minnesota and, of course, Philadelphia.
  • Houston has allowed the 11th-most fantasy points to opposing D/STs this season.
  • Opposing D/STs have scored 11, eight and eight fantasy points against the Texans in the last three weeks, respectively.
  • Looking ahead, the Commanders face the Falcons and Giants before their Week 14 bye.

There are plenty of bad defenses playing bad offenses.

  • I listed them with the ranks of their fantasy points scored and with their opponent’s rank of fantasy points allowed to D/STs.
  • Bengals D/ST (18th-most points scored) at Pittsburgh (3rd-most points allowed)
  • Falcons D/ST (27th) v. Chicago (fourth)
  • Raiders D/ST (31st) at Denver (fifth)
  • Rams D/ST (21st) at New Orleans (sixth)
  • Texans D/ST (30th) v. Washington (seventh)
  • All five teams have clear risks.
  • Of the five, I prefer Cincinnati since they have the most takeaways per game among the teams.
  • Los Angeles is also intriguing since New Orleans has the second-most giveaways per game.
  • Any games with snowy or rainy weather could provide good opportunities for defenses, too.

Rankings

Matt Cassel’s Week 11 NFL Quarterback Power Rankings

Former NFL quarterback Matt Cassel played with seven teams in his career, most notably for the New England Patriots, Kansas City Chiefs, Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys. His weekly QB rankings are a snapshot of where the league’s 32 current starters are right now. 

1. Patrick Mahomes, Kansas City Chiefs

Record: 7-2 | QB Rating: 78.6 | Passing Touchdowns: 25

Comment: Nobody creates magic like Mahomes. The Chiefs’ offense hasn’t slowed up much despite the loss of Tyreek Hill this offseason.

2. Jalen Hurts, Philadelphia Eagles

Record: 8-1 | QB Rating: 63.7 | Passing Touchdowns: 14

Comment: His growth in the passing game coupled with his ability to run is elite. The Eagles may have lost on Monday night, but Hurts has still performed well this season.

3. Josh Allen, Buffalo Bills

Record: 6-3 | QB Rating: 74.3 | Passing Touchdowns: 20

Comment: Despite the elbow injury Allen dealt with, he showcased what makes him special. The Bills’ offense as a whole has been fun to watch all year and Allen is the main component in that.

4. Geno Smith, Seattle Seahawks

Record: 6-4 | QB Rating: 67.7 | Passing Touchdowns: 17

Comment: What a resurgent year for Smith. He has Seattle atop the NFC West despite the team’s loss to the Buccaneers in Germany.

5. Joe Burrow, Cincinnati Bengals

Record: 5-4 | QB Rating: 55.6 | Passing Touchdowns: 18

Comment: After a rough start to the season, the Super Bow hangover seems to be over for Burrow and the Bengals. He has seemingly found his rhythm and has only thrown two interceptions since Week 2.

6. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens

Record: 6-3 | QB Rating: 65.1 | Passing Touchdowns: 16

Comment: Despite his contract being a lingering issue, Jackson has demonstrated he is worth whatever contract comes his way.

7. Tua Tagovailoa, Miami Dolphins

Record: 7-1 | QB Rating: 118.4 | Passing Touchdowns: 18

Comment: He has thrown for 10 TDs and 0 INTs in the last four wins for Miami. He’s now got them leading the AFC East after Buffalo’s loss to the Minnesota Vikings.

8. Tom Brady, Tampa Bay Buccaneers

Record: 5-5 | QB Rating: 54.5 | Passing Touchdowns: 12

Comment: In what has turned into a hard season, Brady has not given up and is coming off an impressive win against the Seahawks. He’s also still second in the NFL in passing yards.

9. Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings

Record: 8-1 | QB Rating: 47.7 | Passing Touchdowns: 14

Comment: Cousins made some impressive throws in overtime to give his team their biggest win of the season. Don’t overlook the Vikings with Cousins playing the way he is.

10. Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers

Record: 5-4 | QB Rating: 55.3 | Passing Touchdowns: 14

Comment: Despite missing Keenan Allen, Herbert has done his best to keep the Chargers afloat. He does need to tone down the turnovers as he has thrown an interception in four straight games.

11. Jimmy Garoppolo, San Francisco 49ers

Record: 4-3 | QB Rating: 48.2 | Passing Touchdowns: 11

Comment: He has done a good job of avoiding sacks recently and has secured consecutive wins against teams from Los Angeles.

12. Aaron Rodgers, Green Bay Packers

Record: 4-6 | QB Rating: 39.6 | Passing Touchdowns: 17

Comment: Rodgers got a much-needed win against the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday. However, his three interceptions against Detroit last week bumps him down the list.

13. Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys

Record: 2-2 | QB Rating: 52.6 | Passing Touchdowns: 6

Comment: He couldn’t get the job done at Lambeau, but Dallas has put up 101 points in the last three weeks since his return.

14. Kyler Murray, Arizona Cardinals

Record: 3-6 | QB Rating: 47 | Passing Touchdowns: 12

Comment: Played okay against Seattle, however, his six fumbles (and two lost) in the last four weeks have hurt the Cardinals this season.

15. Justin Fields, Chicago Bears

Record: 3-7 | QB Rating: 57.1 | Passing Touchdowns: 12

Comment: While Fields has been growing in his passing attack, the way he has used his legs to have 325 rushing yards in three games is simply outstanding.

16. Derek Carr, Las Vegas Raiders

Record: 2-7 | QB Rating: 58.4 | Passing Touchdowns: 13

Comment: While the Raiders as a whole have not played their best, Carr has been somewhat of a bright spot for the team.

17. Ryan Tannehill, Tennessee Titans

Record: 5-2 | QB Rating: 49.7 | Passing Touchdowns: 8

Comment: Tennessee is glad to have their franchise quarterback under center once again. He did enough to earn a win this week and most importantly, he didn’t turn the ball over.

18. Daniel Jones, New York Giants

Record: 7-2 | QB Rating: 60.3 | Passing Touchdowns: 8

Comment: Last year, Jones’ problem was turnovers. In 2022, he hasn’t thrown an interception since Week 2 and has the Giants at 7-2.

19. Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars

Record: 3-7 | QB Rating: 51.9 | Passing Touchdowns: 13

Comment: Lawrence played well against the Chiefs. He linked up with Christian Kirk for two more touchdowns.

20. Russell Wilson, Denver Broncos

Record: 3-5 | QB Rating: 33 | Passing Touchdowns: 7

Comment: Wilson simply hasn’t elevated this Broncos offense the way we all expected. He is taking far too many sacks (at least three in every game since Week 2).

21. Matthew Stafford, Los Angeles Rams

Record: 3-5 | QB Rating: 47.4 | Passing Touchdowns: 8

Comment: He has the same number of INTs and TDs all with a decimated OL. He’s struggled during the Rams’ attempted Super Bowl repeat so far this season. His favorite target, Cooper Kupp, is going to be out for at least the next four weeks after ankle surgery.

22. Jared Goff, Detroit Lions

Record: 3-6 | QB Rating: 54.5 | Passing Touchdowns: 15

Comment: The Lions are starting to figure some things out. Goff has played well in his last three games with just one interception and two wins against the Packers and Bears.

23. Jacoby Brissett, Cleveland Browns

Record: 3-6 | QB Rating: 87.1 | Passing Touchdowns: 8

Comment: Brissett has 748 pass yards in the last three games without an interception, and he’s doing his best to help the Browns win.

24. Taylor Heinicke, Washington Commanders

Record: 3-1 | QB Rating: 47.2 | Passing Touchdowns: 5

Comment: He has led Washington to wins against the Packers, Colts and now the once-undefeated Eagles. He only lost to Minnesota by three points.

25. Marcus Mariota, Atlanta Falcons

Record: 4-6 | QB Rating: 59.2 | Passing Touchdowns: 12

Comment: Despite a tough performance on Thursday night football, he’s proving to be a key reason why Atlanta is one game behind the NFC South lead.

26. Matt Ryan, Indianapolis Colts

Record: 4-3-1 | QB Rating: 44.7 | Passing Touchdowns: 10

Comment: Ryan played within himself in Jeff Saturday’s debut, and has a real opportunity going forward with the new coach.

27. Zach Wilson, New York Jets

Record: 5-1 | QB Rating: 75.5 | Passing Touchdowns: 4

Comment: Wilson led the Jets to a monumental victory over Buffalo, and he hasn’t thrown an interception in four of his last five games.

28. Mac Jones, New England Patriots

Record: 3-3 | QB Rating: 32.7 | Passing Touchdowns: 4

Comment: The former first-round pick has thrown an INT in five of his six starts and only has 354 pass yards in his last three starts. The Patriots need more out of the quarterback position in a competitive AFC East.

29. Andy Dalton, New Orleans Saints

Record: 2-5 | QB Rating: 45.9 | Passing Touchdowns: 11

Comment: Dalton hasn’t elevated the New Orleans offense, leading to four losses in the last five contests with six picks during that span.

30. Davis Mills, Houston Texans

Record: 1-7-1 | QB Rating: 32.4 | Passing Touchdowns: 11

Comment: Mills has thrown an interception in his last four games leading to four straight Houston losses in the process.

31. Kenny Pickett, Pittsburgh Steelers

Record: 2-3 | QB Rating: 39.1 | Passing Touchdowns: 2

Comment: Despite winning at home against the Saints, he has thrown just two touchdowns in his rookie campaign thus far.

32. Baker Mayfield, Carolina Panthers

Record: 1-4 | QB Rating: 78.1 | Passing Touchdowns: 6

Comment: Mayfield is taking over for the Panthers again after PJ Walker’s recent injury. He led three scoring drives against the Cincinnati Bengals the last time he was on the field.
