To help answer your start/sit questions for Week 11, I’ve outlined the latest version of my fantasy football rankings into tiers so you can better visualize the drop-off in expected production at each position.

Note that these are as of Saturday evening and final inactives could still impact certain players, so be sure to check my updated rankings before making your final decisions.

Note: Players who played on Thursday are denoted with an asterisk.
