Start ‘Em, Sit ‘Em, Snag ‘Em for Week 11

Start ’em

1. Mark Sanchez – QB – NY Jets – vs. Denver: His numbers were surprisingly decent despite losing to the Patriots last Sunday. Say what you want about his rock star status despite lack of ability, but with the weapons around him, he always has the possibility to put up a big game. This week against the Broncos poses a great chance for that scenario.

2. Mario Manningham – WR – NY Giants – vs. Philadelphia: He’s matched up against the Eagles defense this week, is there another reason that’s more relevant? It seems that there is consistently an opposing wide receiver that has a career day against the Eagles secondary.

3. David Nelson – WR – Buffalo – @ Miami: The Bills were shellacked last week. What better way to put that behind them than playing the Dolphins? Fitzpatrick has made a habit of looking for David Nelson in the red-zone given his size. There should be plenty of opportunities for him to haul down a touchdown or two this week, but he’s only starting in a quarter of fantasy leagues, and only owned in a little less than half.

Sit ‘em

1. Cam Newton – QB – Carolina – vs. Detroit: Not playing one of the better fantasy options at quarterback this year seems silly, but Carolina’s offensive line looked downright awful against the Titans. Detroit boasts one of the best defensive lines in the league, making time for Newton to look downfield a near impossibility.

2. Jeremy Maclin – WR – Philadelphia – @ NY Giants: He is currently questionable but reports are that he will try to play this Sunday. However, coupling his injuries with the fact that Michael Vick may not be on the field either, playing Maclin does not look to be a safe option.

3. Eric Decker – WR – Denver – @ NY Jets: He has been a solid contributor in deep leagues all season, mainly because all he seems to do is catch touchdowns. However, with Tebow under center the Broncos pass offense has dropped every week, to a season low 8 attempts last Sunday. Not good odds for Decker to be an impact player.

Snag ’em

1. Lance Ball – RB – Denver – @ NY Jets: Knowshon Moreno is out for the year with an ACL tear, and Willis McGahee is highly questionable, thanks in large part to a short week before Thursdays game. You can call it the veer, the option, or Timmy’s offense, but the Broncos run the ball nearly 50 times a game, and Lance Ball is currently their top running-back on the depth chart.

2. Laurent Robinson – WR – Dallas – @ Washington: Last weeks blowout win against the Buffalo Bills was a coming out party for Robinson, who scored two touchdowns in the affair. Don’t expect an effort like that every week, but while he fills the void left by injured Miles Austin he will continue to put up decent numbers.

3. Matt Leinart – QB – Houston – bye: Picking up Leinart is not a move that will help you this week, but Houston sports an exceptional offensive line, two great running-backs, and one of the best wide receivers in the league. This explosive offense could help Leinart produce big time come fantasy playoff season. Pounce on him now, before he’s gone.

  1. No trackbacks yet.
