CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 11

Shark Trends

Up

Doug Martin, RB, Oakland

Martin continues to see upwards of 15 touches a game and has been fairly productive. He’s seeing double-digit carries with a few catches and even though he hasn’t scored a touchdown this year, he’s running hard and getting yards for a helpless offense. Martin will have a chance to find pay-dirt this week against the Cardinals and their soft run defense. A defense that has allowed 13 rushing touchdowns on the season. Treat him as a low-end RB2 for Week 11.

Down

Jimmy Graham, TE, Green Bay

Graham hasn’t been a big pass-catcher the last few years and that trend has carried over to Green Bay. Over the last three games, Graham has just six catches for 90 yards and one touchdown. He’s always a big name in fantasy drafts, but never lives up to expectations. Even with the tight end pool being very slim, Graham is a tough start tonight on the road against Seattle. The Seahawks defense isn’t what it used to be, but they’ve only allowed one tight end all season to go over 50 receiving yards. Stay away from Graham in Week 11.

Shark Sleepers

Rashaad Penny, RB, Seattle

It took him 10 weeks, but Penny finally had his breakout game for Seattle. He only had 12 carries, but he turned those 12 into 108 yards and a touchdown. He ran hard and with a purpose all game and filled in nicely for the oft-injured Chris Carson. Carson is back this week for tonight’s game against the Packers, but Penny most likely jumped Mike Davis in the pecking order and certainly earned more work moving forward. He’s nothing more than a FLEX player at this point, but needs to be owned in all formats as Carson has showed that he can’t stay healthy.

Josh Reynolds, WR, Los Angeles Rams

Reynolds is now a full time starter as he replaces the injured Cooper Kupp. As you know, if you get on the field for the Rams, you’re going to get the ball. Reynolds has already proved that he’s worthy of having a role as he scored two touchdowns in Week 8 the last time he was filling in for Kupp. He’ll be out there for all three receiver sets moving forward and could be in line for a lot of work in this week’s Monday night game against the Chiefs which is expected to be a shootout.

Lock of the Week

Dion Lewis, RB, Tennessee

Lewis is clearly the number one running back for the Titans and has a great matchup in Week 11 against the Colts. Derrick Henry still sees a lot of the goal line work, but Lewis out touches him nearly 2-1 every week. Look for Lewis to have a solid game both rushing and catching the ball on Sunday as Indianapolis’ pass defense is ranked 24th in the league. At least 20 touches from him is expected in Week 11. If he finds the end zone then Lewis should be sitting on a 20 plus fantasy point day. Start him everywhere!
