2011 Fantasy Football Week 11 Round-Up

This week not only does Scott “The King” Engel give you his complete Week 11 lineup rankings, but we also get a few lineup gems from the newest member of the RotoExperts team, Tiki Barber. Both Engel and Tiki love Maurice Jones-Drew this week, naturally, but they also tip you to another running back who not only is good in weekly formats but who has nice salary cap value as well.

Listen up! Jake Ciely has a lesson for you, and it has everything to do with, well, listening. It’s a very important lesson for all Fantasy owners to abide by. If you listen to the RotoExperts team then, well, maybe you won’t have to ask us whether or not Laurent Robinson is for real. We’ve been tipping you to Robinson since before Miles Austin went down. This week, Jake gives you his can’t miss starts and talks about a few guys who he’s buying on, as well as a few who he’s selling. [Hold ‘Em or Fold ‘Em]

Mike Gilbert examines Marshawn Lynch, the freak of the week, and tips you to whether or not he’s a beast or an over-producing bust. He also breaks down the curious situation in Houston, the WTF matchup of the week between the Patriots and the Chiefs and he finishes off the column with his hot freaks and weekly lineup rankings.

Your Week 11 Game Previews are here, as the RotoExperts team goes around the league telling you who to start and who to sit from each game. Believe it or not (I believe it), you’re not going to convince Sarah Bojarski that any of the Tampa Bay Bucs are worth starting this week. I mean, how could you make that case? Once the Packers get out to an early lead you’ll see LeGarrette Blount banished to the bench. [Week 11 Game Previews]

Sarah Bojarski thinks it’s time for you to finally get rid of that dead weight you’ve been holding on to, and she’s looking directly at you, Peyton Hillis owners. Not only considering that Hillis is hurt, having a huge mental block and running with no authority when healthy, but the Browns play @CIN, BAL, and @PIT in Weeks 12-14. That’s pretty brutal, even for a guy who is trying to convince his team that he’s worth millions of dollars. [Pink Zone Coverage]

Of course it comes as no surprise that Calvin Johnson had 19 targets last week against the Bears, but would you believe me if I told you that Harry Douglas of the Atlanta Falcons had the second most targets of the week with 14? Of course you would, because I’ve never lied to you. This week, Adam McFadden makes sense of the Harry Douglas targets and breaks down a week’s worth of targets and touches. [Targets and Touches]

In 2-QB leagues, guys like Matt Leinart, John Skelton and Tyler Palko are instant waiver wire adds, believe it or not. This week, Alex Trautner gives you the skinny on these three guys, along with the possible return of Vince Young. Can it be, is Young really an option? Well, maybe in 2-QB leagues, but not beyond that. [Alex’s Audibles]

Injuries are killing owners in this final bye week, so we turn to our resident consistency expert Bob Lung and ask him who we should target on the waiver wires. One name he might point you to is John Skelton, who, believe it or not, finished third last week in Quality Games Score. That’s his second straight quality game. Can he do it for a third straight week? Yeah, probably not. Life doesn’t get any easier when you’re lined up against the 49ers. Good luck, Mr. Skelton. [Quality Games Scores]

Adam Zdroik isn’t all that happy with the tight end position. The discrepancy this season between the top (Jimmy Graham and Rob Gronkowski) and the bottom (everyone else) has been wide. There really haven’t been many TEs you can count on from week to week. From guys like Vernon Davis to Jermichael Finely, once stellar options are no longer a lock to give you double digit point totals. With that said, Zdroik looks at a few options at tight end and breaks down the trade market in this week’s piece. Admit it, you need help at the tight end position, don’t you? [Market Report]

Matthew De Lima nailed it with his waiver wire advice column this week. He makes that point that offensive success is often times a better indicator of who to add off the wires than opportunity. Think about the difference between Chris Ogbonnaya and DeMarco Murray. Sure, Murray is a better runner, but he’s also in a better offensive system. Defenses can easily key in on Ogbonnaya because the Cleveland passing attack isn’t going to play you off the field. It’s also the reason why someone like James Jones might be a better Fantasy player than Greg Little, despite the fact that Little is a better talent. [Waiver Wires]

Arian Foster has inched ever so closer to Aaron Rodgers on Dr. Roto’s list of the top contenders for the and Maxwell Club’s “Fantasy Football Player of the Year Award.” It’s still Rodgers’ award to lose, but at the very least we can mention Foster as a possible contender. I’m sure it was getting mighty lonely out there for Rodgers. [Fantasy Football Player of the Year]
