The Top RBs To Start in Week 11
Brian Robinson Jr., Washington Commanders
Analysis by Kyle Soppe | I’m running away if I can. I don’t want to say that Robinson’s stock is destined to experience a GameStop-like stock drop, but I’m not not saying that is an outcome that I’m considering. How worried am I?
Would you trade Brian Robinson FOR Tony Pollard (half-PPR)?

Schedule (byes and opponents)
— Kyle Soppe (@KyleSoppePFN) November 14, 2023
Through 10 weeks, Robinson is scoring once every 17.6 touches. That number might not be shocking without context, but allow me to help.
- Robinson, 2022: TD once every 71.3 touches
- Barry Sanders, 1991: TD once every 22.5 touches
Yes. This season, Robinson’s per-touch scoring rate is 22% greater than Sanders’ highest-scoring season of his Hall of Fame career. That’s a real stat.
Robinson is a fine player. He’s also the lead back (barely last week, 31-29 snap edge over Antonio Gibson) in an aggressive offense. Understood. But what he is doing is so far beyond unsustainable.

Robinson has one game with more than 10 carries since Week 4, and yet, he’s finished as a viable fantasy starter in every game over that stretch thanks to crossing the goal line.
When (not if) the TD luck dries up, there are major floor concerns. Due to committees and tough matchups, Robinson still finds himself inside of my top 25 (barely), but there isn’t a player in the sport I’m more aggressively shopping for.
De’Von Achane, RB, Miami Dolphins
Analysis by Derek Tate | Fantasy football managers who enjoyed De’Von Achane’s historic production from a three-game stretch earlier this season has likely been eagerly awaiting his potential return to the fantasy lineup in Week 11.
With the news that Achane is active, he needs to be in your starting lineup. The Raiders give up an average of 22.2 fantasy points per game to opposing running backs, and the Dolphins offense could face a favorable, run-heavy game script if they get out in front against Las Vegas rookie QB Aidan O’Connell.
While many fantasy managers are likely skeptical about Achane’s hot start — averaging an absurd 12.11 yards per carry through his first 38 rushing attempts of his career — few RBs will give you the type of fantasy ceiling Achane offers your fantasy lineup in Week 11.
