The San Francisco 49ers will look to keep their momentum rolling after a big Week 10 win when they travel to take on the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 11. FanDuel Sportsbook has the 49ers slated as 6.5-point favorites in a game that could get out of hand in the second half.

If you need some help with your fantasy lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Week 11 showdown.

Jimmy Garoppolo Fantasy

Start Jimmy Garoppolo, QB, San Francisco 49ers: Quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo is beginning to fly under the radar as a consistent streaming quarterback option. The eighth-year pro has finished as a top-12 QB in each of the last three weeks and has finished with a 4-1 TD/INT ratio over that span. Garoppolo draws a favorable matchup in Week 11 going up against a Jacksonville defense that has posted the second-worst pass defense DVOA rating. Overall, the Jaguars have only posted 4 interceptions on the year and are giving up 260.4 passing yards per game (No. 25 in NFL). Garoppolo has QB1 upside this week.

James Robinson Fantasy

Start James Robinson, RB, Jacksonville Jaguars: If the Jaguars have proven anything over the last few weeks, it is that running back James Robinson is going to see a lot of work moving forward. The second-year pro has seen at least 16 touches in five of his last six games and has scored 6 touchdowns over that span as well. Robinson checks in at RB14 in PPR scoring leagues despite missing one game due to injury. The 49ers' defense is no joke, but it is allowing the ninth-most rushing yards per game in the NFL (122.8). Robinson is a rock-solid RB1 on Sunday.

Elijah Mitchell Fantasy

Sit Elijah Mitchell, RB, San Francisco 49ers: This may come as a shock after Elijah Mitchell saw a whopping 27 carries in Week 10. However, he only rushed for 91 yards (3.4 yards per carry) and racked up 2 red zone touches. Fantasy managers have to keep in mind that Mitchell suffered a finger injury against the Los Angeles Rams that puts his Week 11 status in question. It's likely he won't be treated as a workhorse with Jeff Wilson healthy and capable of taking on some additional carries. The Jaguars have also posted the seventh-best rush defense DVOA rating in the NFL. There's too much risk involved to start Mitchell this week.

Laviska Shenault Fantasy

Sit Laviska Shenault, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars: Wide receiver Laviska Shenault cannot seem to find a consistent role within this Jacksonville offense. The versatile second-year pro is averaging 6.3 targets per game, yet he has failed to surpass 50 receiving yards in each of the last three weeks. He is the No. 3 WR on this team behind veterans Marvin Jones and Jamal Agnew and now has to face an improving 49ers defense. San Francisco is giving up the 11th-fewest PPR fantasy points to opposing WRs, which includes just 7 receiving touchdowns. Simply put, Shenault isn't seeing enough carries out of the backfield to make up for his lack of receiving yards. It'd be best to keep him on the bench for now.
