Week 11 Stream Team: Rhamondre Stevenson, Dan Arnold, and More

Week 11 Stream Team

Week 11 is here and it’s pretty crazy to think we’re fast approaching the fantasy playoffs. Each week this column will analyze a player at each position rostered in 50 percent of Yahoo leagues or less. This group of players is basically a dream stream team. For reference, the threshold used for Wins and Losses in this article will be if the quarterbacks can score at least 17 points, if the tight ends can score at least eight PPR points, and if the rest can score at least 10 PPR points. Here is the Week 11 stream team.

Week 11 Stream Team

Quarterback – Mac Jones (NE – 28%) @ ATL

In a rookie class that was supposed to be loaded at the quarterback position, it’s been a bit of a surprise that Mac Jones has been the most successful so far. Part of it has been the disappointing play from others and part of it has been the surprisingly efficient play of Jones. Either way, he’s looked especially impressive lately.

Jones has led the New England Patriots to four straight victories and has only thrown one interception total over those four games combined. He’s had two good fantasy games in those four as well. Jones is not a mobile quarterback whatsoever so he needs to be efficient to have a good game for fantasy purposes. This week’s matchup against the Atlanta Falcons presents another great opportunity.

The Falcons allow the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks so far this season. This game also has a nice combined total of 47 points and the Patriots are also 6.5-point favorites. This one is also in Atlanta so it will be played in a dome, which should help boost the passing games for both sides. Expect Jones to continue a very good rookie campaign here.

Honorable Mentions – Daniel Jones (NYG – 30%) @ TB, Tua Tagovailoa (MIA – 23%) @ NYJ

Running Back – Rhamondre Stevenson (NE – 32%) @ ATL

It’s always a tricky thing to trust a Patriots running back but boy has Rhamondre Stevenson looked impressive when he’s seen the majority of the work this year. Last week against the Carolina Panthers he consistently ripped off chunk gains on his way to 106 total yards on 10 carries and two receptions. This week against the Cleveland Browns he went nuclear.

Damien Harris, the normal starter, was ruled out for this one paving the way for a workhorse role for Stevenson. He did not disappoint. Stevenson saw 20 carries and four receptions and racked up 114 total yards and two touchdowns. He scored 30.40 full PPR points. This week he gets to face a bad Falcons defense.

As mentioned before, the Patriots are 6.5-point favorites in a game with a 47-point implied total and being played in a dome. The Falcons also allow the sixth-most fantasy points to running backs so far this season. One thing to keep an eye on is if Damien Harris is back that could cut heavily into Stevenson’s workload. If Harris happens to miss another one, though, it’s wheels up for Stevenson.

Honorable Mentions – D’Onta Foreman (TEN – 3%) v HOU, Boston Scott (PHI – 32%) v NO

Wide Receiver – Jamal Agnew (JAX – 9%) v SF

Jamal Agnew is not a name that anyone expected to be taken seriously as a fantasy football option this year, but here we are. He’s been surprisingly involved since D.J. Chark went down with an injury. Almost everyone expected Laviska Shenault’s production to spike but it was Agnew that saw the spike.

Unfortunately, Shenault has been misused as an outside wide receiver while Agnew has manned the slot position. Agnew has been productive though. He’s scored double-digit fantasy points in four of the last five games. Agnew has seen at least five targets in all five of those games and is getting some usage in the running game too.

This matchup against the San Francisco 49ers isn’t anything special but this one is all about the usage. When a guy is this involved on a team that is likely to be trailing early and often, it makes for a solid play.

Honorable Mentions – Mecole Hardman (KC – 43%) v DAL, Sterling Shepard (NYG – 34%) @ TB

Tight End – Dan Arnold (JAX – 26%) v SF

Can this guy get above the 50% roster threshold sometime soon, please? It’s almost unfair getting to choose him each and every week considering how involved he is in the Jacksonville Jaguars offense right now.

Dan Arnold has now seen 37 targets over the last five games. Over that same span, he’s the TE7 and is averaging 10.7 points per game. This is the profile of an every-week starter, not a streamer. For some reason, people can’t seem to buy-in. If Arnold continues to run plenty of routes and draw targets, people will have no choice but to take him seriously.

Hopefully, he’s still available and you can take advantage before it’s too late. As mentioned before, this matchup against the 49ers isn’t great but the usage is just too good, especially as a tight end. The Jaguars are going to be trailing and throwing often which is a bonus. Arnold is not only a great streaming option this week, but also a great option to start for the rest of the season.

Honorable Mentions – Tyler Conklin (JAX – 30%) v GB, Cole Kmet (CHI – 18%) v BAL
