Fantasy Football Week 11 Preview and Picks

Friday 20th, November 2009 / 12:06 Written by

Matt SchaubWeek 11 is full of great matchups for the weekly top point scorers for the NFL, but there are many players that could easily surprise the league and blow up with a huge game.

QUARTERBACKS:
You have to like my favorite fantasy quarterback in Matt Schaub. He is playing on Monday night at home against a hated division rival. He’s had two off games but is rested up with a bye-week and should be able to put up big numbers against the porous Titans defense. Remember, the Titans may be on a 3 game win streak but their defense still is not good.

How can’t Kurt Warner have a big game against the Rams on turf? He may be one of the best indoor/turf quarterbacks of all time and there is no way that the Rams contain another good passing attack at home. Anquan Boldin is finally healthy and Larry Fitzgerald is well, Larry Fitzgerald and usually puts up 100 yards and a TD. Sure Beanie Wells produced well last week, but the Cardinals will be throwing all day long.

If Drew Brees doesn’t have a 20 point game against the Bucs then there may be something wrong with the offense. Of course I am not even the least bit worried. He’s Drew Brees and he’s on the Saints. The only thing I may be worried about is that he may be too good and make Robert Meachem and Devery Henderson into fantasy gold, while leaving Colston out of the picture (he’s on my fantasy team).

Notables: Big Ben, Carson Palmer, and probably D-Nabb against a struggling Bears D

RUNNING BACKS:
I’m too afraid to not put Chris Johnson first on this list because he may blow up for another 40 points and shut me up. I’m glad that the Titans are giving him more than 25 touches in a game because he is that good, and they are playing the streaky Texans D who is bound to give up big plays to the king of breakout plays. I wouldn’t be surprised if he put up another 30 points because he’s done it so many times.

Although he cost me a win in fantasy last week, he is still Mighty Mouse to me. He apologized to fantasy owners and the real apology will come when he lights up the Buffalo run defense and scores 25 points, if he’s nice then 30. MJD will be flying this weekend against a team with a new coach and a new quarterback. If Jack Del Rio was smart, he would run the ball into the playoffs and take Garrard out of situations to make mistakes.Notables: Steven Jackson, Matt Forte, and AP

WIDE RECEIVERS:
My boy Matt Schaub has got to pass it to someone right? Owen Daniels is out and Slaton is falling every day. Well good thing he has arguably the best receiver in the game with Andre Johnson. He should put up over 150 yards and 2 TDs when all is said and done. The Titans D is still the one that gave up all those points to the Patriots and they will be exposed with the Texans on the big stage.

Take your pick between the top big dogs of Randy Moss, who is angry about his previous performance against the Jets, Fitzgerald/Boldin, who are playing the Rams defense and have Warner throwing the ball, and Reggie Wayne, who is on another level with the best quarterback in the game, Peyton Manning. Either or all could have a huge game for their teams and should all be a must start. I predict that Fitzgerald shows off why he was ranked number 1 on many big boards for wide receivers.

Notables: Giants WRs vs. the terrible Falcons pass defense, Donald Driver, Sidney Rice

SLEEPERS:
Many of the sleepers that people are naming this week are based on the injuries that came from the starting running backs ahead of them. Ladell Betts is getting big talk because of the work he did against a very good Denver D. Along with Betts are Jason Snelling and Justin Forsett who look to get a healthy diet of carries for the Falcons and Seahawks while their starters are injured. Why not have Donnie Avery as a sleeper? Because he is the clear number 1 on the team and maybe, just maybe the Rams can get some offense going again.
