Week 11 of the 2021 NFL season brings a clash between two underperforming AFC East teams when the Miami Dolphins take on the New York Jets. The Dolphins are currently 3-point road favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.
If you need some help with your fantasy lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for this Week 11 showdown.
Myles Gaskin Fantasy
Start Myles Gaskin, RB, Miami Dolphins: While Myles Gaskin is the overall RB20 in PPR this season, he's been underperforming lately as RB28 since Week 8. He has a chance to make fantasy managers happy this Sunday against the Jets, whose run defense couldn't stop a nosebleed. New York is surrendering the most fantasy points per game to running backs. With Gaskin averaging 15.3 carries and 4.0 targets over his last four games, it's looking like he's due for a big fantasy showing.
Elijah Moore Fantasy
Start Elijah Moore, WR, New York Jets: A lot of people thought Corey Davis or Jamison Crowder would be New York's best wideout this year, but Elijah Moore has made his case for that title lately. He's been the WR7 in PPR since Week 8, totaling 16 receptions for 195 yards and three touchdowns in that stretch. He's seen at least six targets in six of his last seven games and seems to be more comfortable at the NFL level now. The Dolphins give up the third-most points to wide receivers, so it could be another Top-10 fantasy finish for the rookie.
Mike Gesicki Fantasy
Sit Mike Gesicki, TE, Miami Dolphins: Mike Gesicki enters this Week 11 matchup after failing to catch any of his targets in Miami's win over the Baltimore Ravens. It was the second time he's failed to finish a game with a catch this season. Not only that, but he has just one touchdown in his last six games. He's still PPR's TE3 overall, however, he's fallen to TE20 over the last three weeks while averaging 6.4 fantasy points in that span. The fact that Tua Tagovailoa will get the start while recovering from a finger injury is also another reason to consider sitting Gesicki.
Mike White Fantasy
Sit Mike White, QB, New York Jets: The legend of Mike White came crashing back down to Earth in Week 10. The first-year quarterback completed just 54.6% of his passes for 251 yards and four interceptions without a touchdown. While the Dolphins appear to be a favorable matchup (20.1 fantasy PPG, T-8th), they've held teams to an average of 219.3 passing yards over their last three games. White could have a bounce-back game, however, his leash is probably shorter than before considering that Joe Flacco ended up replacing him and throwing a TD in Sunday's loss. Coupling that potential scenario with White's recent play makes him a sit this week.
