Start & Sit: CFF Week 11

The tenth week of the 2017 college football season is in the books, so let’s take a look at which players could make good start or sits in the eleventh weekend. I will not insult anyone by telling them to play Lamar Jackson, Saquon Barkley, Bryce Love, or James Washington. This article will simply focus on a couple of players at the big three positions who could post monster stat lines or could throw out an underwhelming effort. Without further adieu, let’s get down to business.

Start QB

Start of the week:

Jordan Ta’amu, Ole Miss vs. La-Lafayette

Shea Patterson who? Ta’amu has been phenomenal in his first two starts for the injured Patterson and has the Ole Miss offense humming. He is averaging 375 yards passing in those games and has tallied six total touchdowns. This talented junior could have another outstanding stat line this week against an overmatched La Lafayette defense. The Ragin Cajuns rank 121st in the country in total defense this season and are allowing 37.4 points per game. Look for this Rebel to slice through this defense like butter and post a gaudy total in Week Eleven.

Justice Hansen, Arkansas State vs. South Alabama

Hansen has thrown 15 touchdowns over the last four games and could add three or four more to his season total this week against South Alabama. The Jaguars pass defense comes into this game ranked 91st in the country and could have its hands full with Hansen and crew this week. Hansen can also do damage with his legs as 121-yard rushing effort two weeks ago against La-Lafayette will attest. Look for Hansen to post 300 total yards and account for three to five total scores against the Jaguars this week.

Sit QB

Sit of the week:

Nick Fitzgerald, Mississippi State vs. Alabama

This one is pretty self-explanatory as it is not generally a smart practice to start anyone against Alabama. The Crimson Tide defense is ranked 2nd in the country in total defense, allowing 243 yards per game to opponents. They also rank 1st in the nation in scoring defense at 9.8 points per game. These stats alone should have fantasy owners looking elsewhere in Week Eleven. Leave this dual threat Bulldog on the sidelines this week and look for a better matchup.

Start RB

Start of the week:

Derrius Guice, LSU vs. Arkansas

Guice goes from the outhouse to the penthouse this week. He struggled as expected last week against Alabama, but could post a game for the ages this week versus Arkansas. The Razorbacks rush defense is awful and has allowed 22 rushing touchdowns in nine games. Look for Guice to have his way this week and post one of those 200 plus yard games and add a couple of scores.

Jeffrey Wilson, North Texas vs. UTEP

Wilson ran for 165 yards and two scores last week against Louisiana Tech and could match or exceed those numbers this week versus UTEP. The Miners rush defense ranks 121st in the nation and has given up 26 rushing touchdowns in nine games. The Mean Green rushing attack could be in store for a huge performance and Wilson could be a Top 5 running back play this week. Expect at least 150 rushing yards and at least two scores from this senior in Week Eleven.

Sit RB

Sit of the week:

Rodney Anderson, Oklahoma vs. TCU

Anderson has gone over 100 yards rushing and scored rushing touchdowns in three straight games and has established himself as the top option in the Sooners backfield. His quest for a fourth consecutive 100-yard game could be in jeopardy however as he will be facing TCU this week.The Horned Frogs rush defense is ranked #1 in the nation, having allowed four rushing touchdowns in nine games and yielding a minuscule 70 yards per game. It is just not a prudent decision to start any running backs against TCU this season, and Anderson is no exception. Expect this Sooner to get shut down this week and fantasy owners should look for safer options.

Cam Akers, Florida State vs. Clemson

Akers is coming off the best performance of his young career with 199 yards rushing and two scores last week versus Syracuse. His chances of a repeat performance seem very slim this week against Clemson. The Tigers defense has only surrendered four rushing scores in nine games this season and will likely focus their attention on stopping the stud freshman. The Seminoles offense could sputter in Death Valley and Akers could be in line for a long day.

Start WR

Start of the week:

Tre’Quan Smith, UCF vs. UCONN

Smith has scored nine receiving touchdowns on the season and is coming off a 141-yard performance against SMU last week. He has a very enticing matchup this week against a horrendous UCONN defense. The Huskies pass defense ranks dead last in all of college football, allowing 378 yards per game and 28 receiving touchdowns on the year. Look for this Knight to dominate this week and post a gaudy stat line against an inferior defense. Start Smith and reap the rewards.

Sit WR

Sit of the week:

J’Mon Moore, Missouri vs. Tennessee

Moore has been on a tear recently with four receiving touchdowns in the last three games. The Missouri passing game is clicking on all cylinders right now and will pose a big challenge to Tennessee this week. The Volunteers are an awful team, but they do have a really solid pass defense that ranks 4th in the country. The Tigers may employ a run-heavy offense this week as Tennessee is abysmal against the run. Fantasy owners may want to temper their expectations with Moore and the Mizzou passing game this week.
