Many receivers can be very inconsistent and may perform much better when the matchup is right. But some receivers have matchups where the odd are heavily stacked against them. It would be wise to bench these players out for Week 11 fantasy competition.
Benching of the Week – Roddy White, Atlanta Falcons
Just as the Falcons got wide receiver Roddy White back for a complete game, they may have have lost tight end Tony Gonzalez for Week 11. White played 55 of the Falcons 58 offensive snaps during Week 11, but the absence of Gonzo is bad news for White owners.
With Gonzalez out, the Tampa Bay secondary can focus primarily on receiving threats, Harry Douglas and Roddy White. Meanwhile, White is surely to matchup against Tampa Bay cornerback, Darelle Revis, who is once again looking like the best corner in the league. Roddy White and the Falcons can’t seem to catch a break this season and the struggles should continue this week.
Denarius Moore, Oakland Raiders
As Terrelle Pryor’s status for Sunday’s game remains up in the air, Moore’s potential to produce this week continues to look bleak. Pryor is certainly not himself and Moore’s production is nose-diving because of that.
With Pryor nursing a sore knee last week against the New York Giants, Moore only managed to pull in 3 of his 9 targets for 45 yards. Not only is Pryor questionable for Sunday’s game, but a matchup with the Houston Texans, who boast the league’s top pass defense, does not bode well for Moore.
Greg Jennings, Minnesota Vikings
With Christian Ponder under center the last few weeks, Greg Jennings’ already disappointing season has become a disaster. During the last three games, Jennings has only seen 16 targets, which he has turned into 10 catches for a measly 83 yards. That averages out to around 27 yards per game.
Jennings could be in for an even rougher time during Week 11 when the Vikings face off against the Seattle Seahawks and their vaunted secondary. If Jennings is somehow still in your lineup, put him on the bench immediately.
