Week 11: Fantasy Football Start Em’ / Sit Em’
Russell Wilson – Wilson faces the Minnesota Viking Defense who has allowed the 4th most passing yards in the NFL so far this season. To add to this, Wilson also expects the return of his top WR threat – Percy Harvin. Last week RG3 threw for 281 yards and 3 TD’s against this weak Minnesota Pass Defense. The past 3 games against the Vikings, QB’s have averaged 301 passing yards and 2.3 TD’s. Consider Wilson a safe start this week.
Giovani Bernard – It’s becoming more and more obvious Gio is the feature back in Cinci. Last week Bernard played in 60 snaps, while BJGE played in just 28. The week before that it was 45 to 39 in Bernard’s favor. Last week Bernard saw 8 targtets including a TD in the passing game, while running for 58 yards on 14 attempts. Bernard has played extremely well the past 2 weeks, and we expect the same in this huge divisional matchup against the Browns.
Vincent Jackson – Jackson squares off against the Falcons this week, who are allowing 252 passing yards a game this season. What really sticks out to us, is the amount that WR1’s expose this Atlanta Pass Defense. Last Week Golden Tate went off for 106 yards and a TD. That last time Jackson met against the Falcons, he caught 10 balls on 22 Targets for 138 yards and 2 TD’s. Get VJax in your lineup this week!
Riley Cooper – We’re sticking to the Cooper/Foles connection this week. So far this season, the Cooper/Foles connection has resulted in 15 receptions for 393 yards and 6 TD’s. Cooper squares off against another weak pass defense, in the Washington Redskins. Keep in mind, the Redskins have allowed 11 receiving TD’s so far this season. Expect Cooper and Jackson to keep the production rolling…
Golden Taint – Tate has been a model of consistency this season in the Seattle offensive attack. We expect that trend to continue against a weak Minnesota Vikings secondary who have yielded points to WRs all-season. With or without Harvin back in the lineup against his former team, we still think that owner’s should roll with Tate this week.
Andre Brown – After returning from injury last week, Brown ran wild for 115 Yards and a TD on 30 Touches. Anytime a guy is handed the ball 30 times on his first game back from injury – he’s both healthy and in their plans moving forward. Green Bay is currently allowing 4.3 YPC to RBs this season and 91 YPG to RBs. We expect Brown to follow up his fantastic performance last week with another solid game.
Terrelle Pryor – Without his legs, Pryor is far less of an explosive option in Fantasy Lineups. Pryor was poised for a breakout performance last week against the NYG and rolled up a dud passing for only 122 yards. As we all know, if Pryor is depending on throwing ability alone – this is an option you want to avoid. Oakland plays at Houston this week and we expect more of the same from Pryor … similar to last weeks performance. PS – Pryor hasn’t thrown for a TD since Week 6.
Colin Kaepernick – After chaining together consecutive solid weeks, Kaep popped the fantasy community with a big ugly – going 11 for 22 with 91 Passing Yards and an INT vs Carolina. We didn’t like Kaep last week and don’t expect a bounce-back from him this week against a rejuvenated New Orleans Defense. Doesn’t it make you truly wonder what San Fran is thinking about Alex Smith right now?
C.J. Spiller – Stay away from Spiller until he shows he can be trusted. With Robert Woods and Stevie Johnson both likely out against the Jets this week, expect the Jets to pack their run Defense in. Through 11 Weeks this season, the Jets are allowing 73 rushing yards per game. Go with another option this week.
Tony Gonzalez – Tony G sat Friday’s practice and is looking very questionable for Sundays game against TB. Look to add another TE in his spot this week and potentially the next one. Keep an eye on Cardinals Housler this week, Delanie Walker or Coby Fleener going forward.
49ers DEF – The New Orleans Saints are a dangerous team to play at home, having scored 31 points in 4 of 5 games so far this season. With only 10 turnovers this season, we’re looking into other Defenses for this risky Week 11 matchup.
Chris Ivory (at BUF) – Going up against a weak Buffalo Defense, Ivory has the ability to break out again this week if he can manage to get carries in this unpredictable Jets Offense.
Ben Tate (vs. OAK) – Tate has RB1 potential. He could take a shot to he ribs on his first carry a sit the rest of the game or he could go off for about 150. If you’re a Tate owner, grab Dennis Johnson.
Case Keenum (vs. OAK) – Oakland has been torched multiple times this year as Keenum looks to keep it rolling vs the Raiders
RGIII (at PHI) – RG3 is coming off a lights out performance. Expect a high octane offense from both Washngton and Philly players this weekend.
Andre Ellington (at JAX) – Ellington split the RB role with Mendenhall last week, but that was a little stubbornness coming from Arians. Ellington is the guy to own in this offense as he possess dual threat ability in the air and on the ground.
