MIAMI, Nov. 17 (UPI) -- Stefon Diggs, Davante Adams, Chris Godwin, Tyreek Hill and Tyler Lockett top my Week 11 fantasy football wide receiver rankings for 2021.

A.J. Brown, Amari Cooper, Deebo Samuel, Keenan Allen and Ja'Marr Chase round out my Top 10 options for Week 11. DeVonta Smith, Jaylen Waddle and Elijah Moore are among my other favorite wide receivers to start this week.

Target players who have a good chance to score a touchdown and get a lot of looks from their respective quarterbacks when considering who to start at wide receiver.

Cooper Kupp, Odell Beckham Jr., Van Jefferson, Courtland Sutton, Jerry Jeudy and Tim Patrick are among the wide receivers who should be benched this week, as their teams are on byes.

Here are some of my favorite players in this week's rankings:

TOP SHELF

Buffalo Bills wide receiver Stefon Diggs tops my Week 11 rankings. Diggs scored a touchdown in three of his last four games. He also hauled in eight catches for a season-high 162 yards in Week 10.

This week, the Bills battle an Indianapolis Colts defense that allowed a league-high 15 touchdowns to wide receivers through 10 weeks. The Colts also allowed the fourth-most fantasy points per game and sixth-most catches to the position.

Diggs is an every week starter, but should give your lineup a huge boost in Week 11. I expect him to find the end zone twice.

Chris Godwin of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers is my No. 3 wide receiver. Godwin scored touchdowns in two of his last three games. He also catch at least five passes in each of his last five appearances.

The Buccaneers battle the New York Giants on Monday in Tampa, Fla. The Giants allowed the 10th-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers through 10 weeks.

I expect the Buccaneers to dominate in this matchup. Look for Godwin to make at least eight catches for 100 yards and a score.

SNEAKY PLAYS

Rookie wide receivers DeVonta Smith and Jaylen Waddle land at No. 14 and 19, respectively, in my Week 11 rankings.

Smith went off for 66 yards and two scores in Week 11. He also scored and totaled 116 yards in Week 9. I expect more of the same from the Philadelphia Eagles playmaker this week when he takes on the New Orleans Saints.

The Saints allowed the fourth-most receiving yards and the fifth-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers through 10 weeks. They also just allowed 100 yards to Tennessee Titans wide receiver Marcus Johnson in Week 10.

Look for Smith to break free for some big plays in this matchup. He should total at least 80 yards and find the end zone.

Waddle's Miami Dolphins battle the New York Jets on Sunday in East Rutherford, N.J. The Jets allowed the 12th-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers through half the season. They also just allowed 267 total yards and a score to Buffalo Bills wide receivers Stefon Diggs and Gabriel Davis in Week 10.

Waddle's 84 targets this season are tied for ninth-most in the NFL. His 60 catches are tied for the sixth-most in the league. Waddle only scored three times through his first 10 career games, but I expect another score this week in what could be a shootout.

He is a midrange WR2.

LONGSHOTS

New York Jets wide receiver Elijah Moore can be used as a WR3 streamer this week due to his recent success and a matchup against the Miami Dolphins.

The Dolphins allowed the second-most catches, second-most receiving yards and sixth-most fantasy points per game to wide receivers through 10 weeks. Moore scored touchdowns in each of his last two games. He also received at least six targets in six of his last seven appearances.

Look for Moore to haul in at least eight catches for 90 yards in this matchup. He is my No. 24 option.
