Couch Potato Blitz: Week 11 Fantasy Edition
Week 11 Fantasy Football is chalked full of options for this weekend. The bye weeks have ended and you now have more opportunities to make the wrong decision on who to start. If you have one question or many, you have come to the right place.
I may get to every player you are questioning in this article, but if you have specific questions, you can always contact me via Twitter. Also, don’t forget to readWoodhead on a lot of dump-offs instead of a running game.
As opposed to week nine it could be a great week to have a Johnson on your team. I like Calvin Johnson against a Cowboys defense that has allowed more than 20 plus fantasy points to WRs in every game since the first. Although I don’t think Schaub will have a big game, I do think Andre Johnson will find the end zone.
The guys I would love to have on my team this weekend at the WR position: Roddy White, Dwayne Bowe, Marques Colston, and DeSean Jackson will all give fantasy owners something to be thankful for this holiday season.
Kitna’s chemistry has continued to grow with Dez Bryant. Also the fact that he looks like a bigger, stronger version of Michael Irvin makes him a good play.
Joe Flacco has found a new security blanket in the form of Anquan Boldin. These two should have their way on Sunday against Carolina.
Santonio Holmes has put together back-to-back double-digit fantasy point weekends. I like him and Braylon Edwards against Houston – I would like myself to score against the Texans.
Randy Moss has had a tough time getting along with coaches recently. He won’t find it tough to have a good game against the Redskins – no WR ever does. I also like his teammate Nate Washington.
Fantasy Duds – Sit’em
Not only is Carson Palmer listed as questionable for Sunday’s game, his future with the Bengals is also questionable. The Bills haven’t been as easy to pass against of late – only giving up 14 fantasy points on average over the last three games.
Matt Schaub is listed as questionable – so is his talent. Schaub has been very inconsistent this season and with your fantasy season possibly on the line I would sit him against the Jets.
A couple of big name guys I’m not in love with this weekend are Eli Manning and Ben Roethlisberger. Both of them are playing teams that haven’t given up more than 17 fantasy points to opposing QBs in the last four weeks.
A couple of guys smeared in controversy that should be smeared on the field Sunday are Brett Favre and Donovan McNabb.
The Giants will give up rushing TDs this weekend I’m just not sure they will be to LeSean McCoy. Not only does he have a shoulder injury, but he hasn’t scored a rushing TD in five games.
I don’t love Michael Turner this weekend – St. Louis has only given up three rushing TDs this season and Turner has been hot and cold.
The LeGarrette Blount redemption tour has been going pretty great so far. Blount is facing a 49ers defense that has only allowed three rushing TDs to RBs all season.
I wouldn’t start any RBs from either of these contests – Indianapolis vs. New England or Denver vs. San Diego. Both of these games will feature more passing than that of a Drivers Ed car on the freeway.
I don’t like the match-ups for Brandon Jackson vs. Minnesota or Marshawn Lynch vs. New Orleans. If you have different flex options you should probably go with it.
Last week people questioned Terrell Owens and his effort. I don’t question his effort, but his ability to beat the double teams he has been facing.
Don’t fall in love with Mike Williams (Seattle) just yet. The New Orleans defense has only surrendered two receiving TDs all season. Also his play has been patchier than Matt Hasselbeck’s head.
The Jaguars might have one less receiver to go deep on the hail-mary pass this weekend. Mike Sims-Walker is questionable and even if he plays any impact is doubtful.
Louis Murphy returns this weekend from a lung injury. On the list of things that are important for football players to have healthy, lungs would be at the top. Don’t play him until you see him return to action for a week.
Santana Moss has been fading like a Kid n’ Play haircut. Santana has a total of seven fantasy points in his last two games. They play Tennessee and that is not the “Moss” you want on Sunday.
Thank you for suiting up for another week of the “CPB” fantasy edition. Please don’t forget to comeback next week, and also to check out Week 11 Picks and Predictions.
