It was a rough week for me as I only went 5-9 on my picks. Well I was bound for a let down after getting at least 9 right the last month. My hit of the week was the Steelers getting a big win at home against the Browns. The miss had to have been the Lions who got outplayed by the Cardinals. To make it worse the Lions didn’t even have positive yards running the ball. I did alright on the fantasy studs with Brett Favre having a big game and the Chiefs defense playing pretty well. Here are my week 11 picks and fantasy studs.
Game of the weak: Rams vs 49ers: Who would have thought that this game would be a battle for 3rd place in the NFC west?
Game of the week: Chargers vs Jaguars: Both teams came off big wins last week as the Chargers had an emotional game at home and the Jaguars got a big divisional win against the Titans. Even more good news for the Jaguars,David Garrard should be playing this week.
Bucs 24 Falcons 13
Browns 28 Ravens 16
Giants 35 Lions 24
Dolphins 14 Eagles 28
Raiders 14 Vikings 17
Chargers 21 Jaguars 24
Chiefs 14 Colts 35
Cardinals 21 Bengals 31
Panthers 10 Packers 35
Saints 31 Texans 23
Steelers 35 Jets 7
Bears 17 Seahawks 27
Rams 27 49ers 13
Redskins 16 Cowboys 38
Patriots 35 Bills 24
Titans 16 Broncos 24
QB: Jon Kitna vs Giants: The Giants have had a hard time stopping the pass and Kitna should get lots of opportunities as they should be playing from behind. Expect around 340 yards and 2 touchdowns.
RB: Chester Taylor vs Raiders: If it wasn’t for Adrian Peterson,Taylor would probably be no.2 back in most fantasy leagues. This is the matchup his owners are dreaming of. The Raiders are 28th in the league in rushing and have allowed 13 touchdowns. It should be a good day for Taylor so expect around 140 yards and a touchdown.
WR: Plaxico Burress vs Lions: Is anyone on the Lions capable of covering Burress? When the number one cornerback is Fernando Bryant,probably not. Burress should have a very big game. Expect around 130 yards and a touchdown.
TE: Leonard Pope vs Bengals: Pope was a popular pickup this week as he had 2 touchdowns last week. His owners should expect another good game this week also. Expect around 50 yards and a touchdown.
K: Phil Dawson vs Ravens: All the sudden teams have been scoring on the Ravens with ease. Is this the beginning of the end for the star studded defense? Dawson should benefit this week as the Browns will get lots of chances. Expect around 3 field goals and 2 extra points.
Def: Vikings vs Raiders: The Vikings haven’t put up great fantasy numbers since the first few weeks of the year. Now is the time to use them again against a struggling Raiders offense. Expect around 5 sacks 2 interceptions and a defensive touchdown.
