Some Week 11 Winners/Losers

Some Week 11 Winners

Greg Jennings – The fifth year wide receiver was the top-scoring RB/WR/TE this week, and grabbed 3 touchdowns in his 7 receptions for 152 yards. He caught the balls from another fantasy winner, Aaron Rodgers, who came back nicely from the bye. Since throwing 9 picks through his first 7 games, he’s 7 touchdowns for 0 picks and 760 yards in his last 3. Rodgers’ fourth touchdown of the day went to James Jones, who has scored a touchdown in two straight games now.

Steve JohnsonRyan Fitzpatrick‘s new favorite target bounced back from a sub-par Week 10 performance to pay up big in fantasy circles. He had 8 receptions for 137 yards and 3 touchdowns. Fitzpatrick had 4 touchdowns and 2 picks in his 316 yards passing. Buffalo running back Fred Jackson also enjoyed nice numbers on Sunday. He had 21 carries for 116 yards and 2 touchdowns, and tacked on 13 yards receiving.

Arian Foster – He had 143 combined yards and 2 touchdowns against a traditionally stingy New York Jets defense (although he did lose a fumble). On the other side of the ball, Mark Sanchez had another handy game for fantasy players (315 yards, 3 TDs, INT), and two of his touchdowns went to WR Santonio Holmes, who grabbed 7 receptions for 126 yards and 2 touchdowns.

Maurice Jones-Drew – Like Foster, he lost a fumble, but he managed to carry the ball 23 times for 133 yards and a touchdown. He also stacked on 3 catches for 87 yards. For Jacksonville’s opponent the Cleveland Browns, Peyton Hillis had 143 combined yards and a touchdown.

Ben Roethlisberger – The Berger combined his 275 passing yards and 3 touchdowns with 55 rushing yards and another touchdown on the ground. He threw 3 of his 18 completions to Mike Wallace, who had 116 yards receiving yards and 1 touchdowns, and added 19 yards rushing.

Drew Brees – The Super Bowl MVP threw 4 touchdowns and 2 picks in his 389 yards passing. He completed 8 of his passes for 113 yards and 2 touchdowns to WR Marques Colston. New Orleans’ running back Chris Ivory also had a handy game, gaining 99 rushing yards and 1 touchdown. Away team Seattle’s quarterback Matt Hasselbeck threw for 366 yards, but just one touchdown. The TD went to WR Ben Obomanu, who had 87 receiving yards on top of the touchdown.

Some Week 11 Losers

The Miami Dolphins’ Offense – In the week’s first shutout, the Dolphins’ got shut down by a steadfast Chicago Defense. For the first time in a while, Miami played just one quarterback, but he was Tyler Thigpen, and he gained just 187 yards through the air for no touchdowns, although he was Miami’s top rusher with 27 yards found on the ground. In fact, Dolphins coach Tony Sporano called just six rushing plays. Six. 3 went to Ricky Williams, and the other three went to Ronnie Brown. Six.

The San Francisco 49ers Offense – In the second shutout of the week, Frank Gore had 17 combined touches for just 60 yards and no touchdowns. Michael Crabtree had only one catch for 15 yards. When all was said and done, if you’d started any of San Francisco’s offensive playmakers, you were unhappy.

Brett Favre – Man, does this guy blow chunks or what. Favre threw the ball 38 times, and had just 17 completions, an interception and no touchdowns. That’s the backbone of an awful fantasy football score.

I’m not feeling too hateful, so that’s all the fantasy losers I’m going to rag on for this week.
