Fantasy Football Dilemma: Who to Start in Week 11?

There is a strong chance that fantasy owners have DJ Moore and Adam Thielen on their rosters, especially if they are fans of the Carolina Panthers who miss Moore’s presence on their offense. If that’s the case, they may be faced with a difficult question this week: between the two, who should start? When comparing both options, it may be tempting to lean towards DJ Moore, who has proven to be a very good fantasy wide receiver this season. He’s had a few incredible games and is facing the 22nd-ranked opposing defense for wide receivers in fantasy this week. On the other hand, Adam Thielen has been an excellent and surprisingly good player, and even though his performance has tanked in the last couple of weeks, he’s still the only player Bryce Young can trust to be remotely open and to hold on to the pass. Our fantasy football start/sit analyzer suggests that Adam Thielen is the better player to go with this time around, despite facing a particularly challenging defense. The Cowboys run defense is decent, but they will likely get out to an early lead and force Carolina to become one-dimensional. That’s bad news for Panthers fans, but it could be good news for Thielen owners, as he is a usage player now and much of his production comes from being the only reliable player on that offense. So, start Adam Thielen over DJ Moore this week.
