Fantasy Football Report: Week 11

When it comes to the fantasy realm, I am all about sportsmanship and giving it your all right up to the end. So if you are one of the unfortunate owners who will not be making the fantasy football playoffs then please, do not stop playing. I can’t stand owners who don’t pay attention or who will just purposely dump their teams into free agency or through a lopsided trade. Play to the end. Odds are you can be a deciding factor in another team’s future. Play for pride dammit!

JaMarcus Russel Still Battling Injury

Oakland QB JaMarcus Russel has been nursing an ankle injury over the past two weeks. It made him miss  Week 10 against Carolina and it took him out of the Week 11 game against Miami. Keep an eye on it if you play Russell every week. Although, I don’t know why you would.

Brandon Jacobs Likely Out For Sunday

KFFL is reporting that New York Giants RB Brandon Jacobs is more than likely to sit out Sunday against the Cardinals. Jacobs said he could play if he wanted to to but, the team probably won’t rush him back.

Romo Returns, Still Rusty

Dallas QB Tony Romo, who has missed three games with a broken pinkie, was back on the field on Sunday. He was wearing a splint on his finger and had an uneventful game with 198 yds, a TD, and 2 INT.

Week 11 Top Performers

Matt Cassel (QB), New England Patriots: With no ground game, Cassell carried the offense on his back with 400 yds and 3 TD. He threw in 62 rush yds for good measure.

  • Week 12 Outlook: The Dolphins are next in line. Miami doesn’t allow many rushing yds (91.3), so Cassel will shoulder the load again.

Justin Gage (WR), Tennessee Titans: Gage had more yds on Sunday (147) than he had in his three previous games combined. He also had 2 TD.

  • Week 12 Outlook: With the Titans running game stalling, Tennessee faces a Jets defense that gives up only 81.3 rush yds per game. So, expect Kerry Collins to keep throwing the ball.

Joseph Addai (RB), Indianapolis Colts: Addai got his first 100-yd game of the season when he ran for 105 yds and a TD. He added a receiving TD to his day too.

  • Week 12 Outlook: Another big day could be in store for Addai and the Colts when they face the Chargers. San Diego allows 22.9 points and 105.2 rush yds per game.

Week 11 Duds

Philip Rivers (QB), San Diego Chargers: it was not the best day for Rivers, who threw for 159 yds and 2 INT.

  • Week 12 Outlook: Sunday’s game against the Colts could be a shootout. The Colts allow 22.4 points per game, but they give up less than 200 pass yds per game.

Andre Johnson (WR), Houston Texans: Johnson had a tough time against the Colts with just 4 catches for 55 yds.

  • Week 12 Outlook: After 32 catches and 462 yds in Weeks 6-8, Johnson only has 18 catches and 183 yds in his past three games. Houston faces a Cleveland defense that is decent against the pass (219 yds allowed per game) and terrible against the run (149 yds allowed per game). So expect Houston to run it a lot.

Clinton Portis (RB), Washington Redskins: After resting a knee injury, Portis carried 15 times for only 68 yds and zero TD.

  • Week 12 Outlook: Portis should get back on track against a Seahawks defense that surrenders 115.5 rush yds per game.

Unexpected Stars

Kevin Smith (RB), Detroit Lions: The Rookie has finally stopped splitting carries and showed he is up to the task with 112 rush yds.

  • Week 12 Outlook: Smith will hit a road block in the form of Tampa Bay. The Bucs allow under 100 rush yds per game.

Pierre Thomas (RB), New Orleans Saints: Thomas put together 88 rush yds and a TD along with 56 receiving yds against the Chiefs

  • Week 12 Outlook: The New Orleans ground game could explode against Green Bay. The Packers give up 147.4 rush yds per game.

Peyton Hillis (RB), Denver Broncos: Hills only had 10 carries for 44 yds but, he made each carry count with 2 TD.

  • Week 12 Outlook: Denver doesn’t run a lot anymore. However, they face Oakland in Week 12 and the Raiders are absolutely terrible against the run. They give up over 160 rush yds per week.

Sports of Boston Friends and Family League

  • Not only did I win my matchup, I scored the most points in the league last week when I won 131.86-65.34. I’d like to thank Michael Turner, Joseph Addai, and T.J. Houshmandzadeh. I sit in 4th place.
  • KC remains in first with a victory over WickedPissaDude by a score of 103.46-92.78.
  • The last trade of the season went through when SoB’s Chris traded Matt Cassell and Kevin Walter to SoB’s Jeff for Roddy White.
  • Recent pickups include: Carnell Williams, Joe Nedney, Michael Jenkins, Miami Defense, Ricky Williams, and Matt Bryant.
