Fantasy football rankings, Week 11: Wide receivers in PPR and standard leagues

Eagles WR Riley Cooper had another big game for his owners in Week 10. Check out where we rank Cooper, Jarrett Boykin, Pierre Garcon and others in our Week 11 Wide Receiver Rankings.

Tavon Austin had a solid preseason and felt the love of many fantasy owners in 2013 drafts, but the ineffectiveness of the St. Louis Rams offense hurt his fantasy value. He fell out of my top 50 wide receiver rankings for a bit but after his performance on Sunday, it will be hard not to include him in future rankings. Not only did Austin return a punt 98 yards for a touchdown, he caught two passes for 138 yards and a pair of scores in the Rams' 38-8 win over the Colts. Austin played just 15 snaps on Sunday, so it remains to be seen if his Week 10 performance is worthy of a top 50 ranking or not. The Rams are on a bye in Week 11, so there's that.

Philadelphia Eagles QB Nick Foles looks pretty comfortable running the Eagles' new offense now, as he tossed three more touchdowns on Sunday, giving him 10 touchdown passes in his last two games. His favorite receiver appears to be WR Riley Cooper, as he was targeted five times by Foles, catching three passes for 102 yards and two touchdowns in the Eagles' 27-13 win over the Packers. Cooper now has 28 receptions for 555 yards and seven touchdowns this season. He will move up our rankings in Week 11.

Even with Jordy Nelson and James Jones healthy, Green Bay Packers WR Jarrett Boykin saw the most targets in the Packers' Week 10 loss to the Eagles. Boykin caught eight of his 13 targets for 112 yards and no scores. After being targeted just once in last week's game against the Bears, Boykin was targeted 13 times, and now has gone over the 85-yard mark in three of his last four games.

Target Practice

Below is a table with the wide receivers who have been targeted the most over the last three weeks. The leader during that stretch has been Bengals WR A.J. Green, which comes as no surprise. He is one of the best wide receivers in the game and is consistently ranked in my top five wide receivers.

The receivers who are starting to become a bigger part of their respective passing games are Chicago Bears WR Alshon Jeffery and Pittsburgh Steelers WR Emmanuel Sanders. Jeffery stands out because he was targeted 20 times in Week 10. That's not a typo, he was targeted 20 times vs the Lions. Jeffery is fast becoming a WR2 this season and should continue to be targeted the rest of the season.

The 2013 Steelers are not your father's Steelers as they don't run the ball as well as they have in the past, and their offense lives and dies by the arm of QB Ben Roethlisberger. Lucky for him he has two quality receivers in Sanders and Antonio Brown. Sanders has inched his way up our rankings over the last three weeks, and fantasy owners should feel comfortable starting him every week.

The table below lists the team defenses that have given up the most fantasy points to opponents' wideouts this season. Like in Week 9, the Bills and Eagles defenses continue to give up the most fantasy points to wide receivers, so don't hesitate to start receivers going up against these two defenses going forward.

Wide receivers with favorable matchups in Week 11:

1. Pierre Garcon vs. Philadelphia
2. Jeremy Kerley vs. Buffalo
3. Antonio Brown/Emmanuel Sanders vs. Detroit
4. Andre Johnson/DeAndre Hopkins vs. Oakland
5. DeSean Jackson/Riley Cooper vs. Washington
