Starting with the MVP slot, Kyler Murray is a man that needs absolutely no introduction as he is the number one ranked fantasy player this season as he averages just over 30 fantasy points per game.
Murray seems to have taken his game to a new level in the past three games as he has been responsible for three or more touchdowns as he has thrown for three touchdowns and has rushed for one in two of those three games and has thrown for one and rushed for two touchdowns in the other.
Not to mention, his highest-scoring daily fantasy football game on the season was in those three games where he went for 38.1 points and it was also against Seattle as well. With that said, Murray is a must-start here against the Seahawks.
The first flex roster slot is filled out by Murray’s go-to receiver, DeAndre Hopkins. Hopkins has been a man amongst men this season as he is the 19th overall fantasy player and the 4th best receiver in fantasy this year as well.
Hopkins has a great matchup here in Week 11 where he is going up against the absolute worst-ranked defense in the NFL as they give up the most fantasy points to receivers this season.
Just to give an idea of what they allow, when Hopkins was matched up against the Seahawks in Week 7, he went for 103 yards and a touchdown for 24.3 points. He is also coming off of a 127 yard and one touchdown game as well which makes it the second game in three games that he has gone for over 100 yards.
The second Flex spot is taken by D.K. Metcalf, who has been the clear cut WR1 for this Seahawks offense. Metcalf has gone for over 90 receiving yards in seven of nine games this season in which four of them have gone for over 100 yards. He has had himself a bit of a rough patch in his last four games as in two of the four games he was held to under 30 yards.
Metcalf has a nice matchup here in Week 11 against the Cardinals who rank 25 against opposing wide receivers. In their last three games, they have allowed opposing receivers to go for 190 yards and a touchdown, 60 yards and a touchdown and a whopping 200 yards and 3 touchdowns to Metcalf’s teammate, Tyler Lockett.
Metcalf could be in line for a big game here and should be rostered.
Filling out the third Flex slot is Chase Edmonds who is the Cardinals’ new RB1 with the struggles of Kenyan Drake. Edmonds has looked solid in his last three outings as he has gone for over 50 rush yards in each game and has also seen three receptions as well in each game.
In one of those games, however, against Seattle, he went for 58 rush yards and saw seven receptions for 87 receiving yards which was good for 18 fantasy points. With Edmonds having a nice stretch of games, fantasy owners can surely roster him and ride the hot streak.
The final roster spot is taken by Greg Olsen. Olsen has been quiet throughout the season but here in this matchup with the Cardinals, he could be in line to have a nice game with the help of the supporting cast around him.
Being that the Cardinals allowed for Lockett to go for 200 yards and three touchdowns in their last meeting and also that Metcalf has been on another level this season, the defensive focus here will almost certainly be on those two. With the defense focusing on them, it would open up Olsen a whole lot more and being that he is a big target, he could see some red zone looks as well.
