Points Per Read-Week 11

(11/13/19 1:52am)

With 10 weeks in the books, I can say with certainty that this has been one of the most grueling fantasy seasons I’ve ever experienced. Somehow I have managed to be ranked top 3 in all of my leagues. Nevertheless, it seems as though there have been more key injuries and letdowns this year than ever before. The only players that were picked top 10 in fantasy drafts, and have actually lived up to their expectations, are Christian McCaffrey and Michael Thomas. Every other player has either been hurt or just simply hasn’t produced. With that being the case, this was really a year that tested the managing capabilities of fantasy owners, and the work doesn’t stop now. Similarly to last week, there are a decent amount of superstars on a bye, so this will be another week where the waiver wire is crucial. As usual, I will include my start/sit predictions at the end of the column.
