Home / Commentary / CORNER LOCKDOWN: Week 11


Trending Up

Jacob Hollister, TE, Seattle

Hollister has exploded onto the fantasy radar the past two weeks as the new starting tight end for the Seahawks. With Will Dissly on the shelf for the rest of the year, Hollister has become fantasy relevant. Over the last two weeks, he’s caught 12 balls for 99 yards and three scores from 16 targets and has been a huge part of the now hot Seattle offense. Hollister does have a bye this week, but he needs to be owned and started in all formats moving forward. Russell Wilson has always shown love to his tight ends and it appears that Hollister could be a nice fantasy piece down the stretch.

Trending Down

David Johnson, RB, Arizona

Johnson has had a pretty good season so far. The rushing yards have been hard to come by, but he’s been great in the passing game. It’s not all been good though as Johnson missed three weeks with injury. He returned last week and it was probably the worst game of his pro career. He had five carries for two yards, one reception for eight yards and lost a fumble. Johnson clearly isn’t 100% and faces the very tough San Francisco defense this week. Stay away at all costs.

Shark Sleepers

Brian Hill, RB, Atlanta

With Devonta Freeman nursing an injured ankle, Hill looks to be the starting running back for the Falcons in Week 11 against the Panthers. He came on in relief of Freeman in the first half last week and played very well. Hill saw 21 total touches, logging 61 rushing yards, 10 receiving yards and a receiving touchdown. He’s a legit three down back and needs to be started this week as Carolina doesn’t have a very strong run defense. Treat Hill as a solid RB2 this week.

Deebo Samuel, WR, San Francisco

Samuel went off in Week 10 for eight catches and 112 yards. He saw 11 targets and was Jimmy Garoppolo’s favorite receiver all game. A lot of this was due to Emmanuel Sanders leaving early with a rib injury and George Kittle being inactive, but still it was a solid performance out of Samuel. Sanders and Kittle are both very questionable for Week 11 against the Cardinals so keep an eye on this situation. If one or both are out, then Samuel could be in line for another busy day.

Lock of the Week

Damien Williams, RB, Kansas City

Williams is now back to being fully entrenched as the Chiefs’ starting running back. Last week he had 19 carries and five targets; anytime you have a back seeing more than 20 touches, he needs to be in your starting lineup. Williams has a great matchup looming in Week 11 on the road against the Chargers on Monday night and should easily see his 20 touches and be a big part of the offense. Must start.
