The Philadelphia Eagles (3-5-1) will look to remain atop the NFC East division as they go on the road to take on the Cleveland Browns (6-3) in Week 11 NFL action. The Browns are 3-point favorites, according to FanDuel Sportsbook's NFL betting odds, in a game featuring a number of popular fantasy football players.

If you need help with your fantasy football lineups, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for the Week 11 Eagles-Browns showdown.

Travis Fulgham Fantasy

Start Travis Fulgham, WR, Philadelphia Eagles: Travis Fulgham had his first truly poor performance of the season last week hauling in just 1 of 5 targets for 8 yards. However, the obvious chemistry between Fulgham and quarterback Carson Wentz warrants him to remain a starter in fantasy football. Fulgham had surpassed 70 receiving yards or scored a touchdown in every game he had played before last week. He draws a decent matchup this week as the Browns have given up fifth most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers this season as well as 12 touchdowns (T-No. 24 in the NFL). This looks like a matchup in which Fulgham could bounce back and have a huge game.

Kareem Hunt Fantasy Outlook

Start Kareem Hunt, RB, Cleveland Browns: With the return of starting running back Nick Chubb, many fantasy football managers were worried Kareem Hunt's usage would decline. However, that wasn't the case as Hunt played 58% of the offensive snaps and the two running backs each had 19 carries on the day. Hunt surpassed 100 rushing yards for the first time this season and proved he should still have a role in this offense moving forward. The Eagles are giving up 133.0 rushing yards per game this season (No. 26 in the NFL) and 4.4 yards per carry (T-No. 15 in the NFL). Expect to see a healthy dose of Hunt coming out of the backfield as the Browns rely on their strong running game.

Sit Carson Wentz, QB, Philadelphia Eagles: It is no secret that Carson Wentz has struggled on the field this year and that is proving to be true in fantasy football as well. Wentz has posted back-to-back outings of less than 210 passing yards and threw zero touchdowns last week. This matchup does not seem like the one where he will bounce back, either. The weather in Cleveland caused havoc last week and looks to do so again this week. With rain and high winds in the forecast, this may be a game where the Eagles lean on their running back duo of Miles Sanders and Boston Scott. Carson Wentz should be benched this week and moving forward until he figures out his issues.

Sit Jarvis Landry, WR, Cleveland Browns: When No. 1 receiver Odell Beckham Jr. went down with a season-ending injury, many people were excited to see Jarvis Landry step up for this offense. However, that hasn't been the case as Landry has racked up 50-plus receiving yards just three times this season. Plus, his only touchdown has come from a trick play in which he passed the ball. The Eages' defense has done a good job shutting down receivers this season as they have only given up 1,310 yards (No. 5 in the NFL) and 7 touchdowns (T-No. 5 in the NFL) to the position. Landry sees enough targets to be owned in fantasy football, but he should stay on the bench unless his production increases.
