Week 11 Fantasy Football Roundup | Sharapova's Thigh

After his record-breaking fantasy performance in week 10, how can't you stick with Vick?

The Bears and Dolphins play tonight in Miami, so make sure to set your lineups before the game if you have any players from those teams.

I'll continue to update the post with more links as the week goes on, so keep checking back. Also, feel free to e-mail me any other fantasy football links at sharapovasthigh@gmail.com, and I'll consider adding them to the post.

Other fantasy football articles from around the web...
And some picks of my own(based on standard league scoring systems):

Week 11's Best

QB: Michael Vick... After having the greatest performance ever for a fantasy football quarterback, how couldn't I have him here, even if he has a tough matchup against the Giants? If he looks like how he did on Monday night, it won't matter how good the opposing defense is- He's unstoppable.

RB: Chris Johnson... Washington's allowing 5 yards per carry, tied with Indianapolis for most in the NFL. Yes, the Titans are VERY well aware of that. Look for CJ2K to go off.

WR: Calvin Johnson... Nine+ catches in two of his last three games, and four touchdowns over those three games. And even better news: He gets the Cowboys this week, who have allowed 20+ touchdown passes, which is the second-most in the NFL(just behind the Texans, whose pass defense is in another league of terrible).

TE: Jacob Tamme ... Antonio Gates is very "Questionable" for Monday night(which could create quite the shitty situation for his fantasy owners), otherwise I'd have him here. But Tamme has 24 catches in three games since replacing Dallas Clark. That's more catches over the last three games than anybody else in the league.

K: Rob Bironas... He had five straight double-digit fantasy performances before the last two weeks, and totaled only 11 over those two weeks. Chris Johnson will get the Titans in field goal range a lot.

D/ST: Pittsburgh Steelers... The Raiders have the league's #2 rushing offense, but the Steelers have by far the league's top run defense on the season. If you can shutdown the Raiders' running game, you're likely going to shutdown their offense.

UPDATE Since The Brian Freaking St. Pierre QB'ing The Carolina Panthers News... I Change My D/ST Pick To the Ravens:

D/ST: Baltimore Ravens... Um, yeah, just read this:

Brian St. Pierre thrown five passes in eight NFL seasons. He wasn't in a training camp this summer and as recent as last week was a stay-at-home dad.

Sleeper Picks

QB: Joe Flacco... At least 15 fantasy points in his last five games, but few have noticed. Now he gets a Panthers team that his Ravens will beat up on. He might not see the fourth quarter of this game if it goes how I expect it to, but he should be able to get another 15-pointer before that.

RB: Mike Tolbert... Ryan Mathews' status is in doubt, and even if he plays, Tolbert should get a fair amount of carries and some goal-line opportunities against the Broncos. And the Broncos have allowed 14 rushing touchdowns, most in the NFL. Tolbert might be available in your league too if you're looking for a plug-in.

WR: Mike Williams(Seattle)... Williams had 11 catches for 145 yards, and now has 46 catches on the season. However, he only has one touchdown. This is my hunch pick of the week: He finds the end zone against the Saints.

TE: Dustin Keller... He had five touchdowns in weeks 2-4, and has none since then. He hasn't even had over seven fantasy points in a game since then. Well, the Texans are allowing 12.3 fantasy points per game to tight ends, so I like for Keller to finally get 10+.

K: Sebastian Janikowski... I think it will be tough for them to find the end zone against the Steelers and will have to settle for some field goal attempts.

D/ST: Kansas City Chiefs... They allowed 49 points, and had NEGATIVE-10 fantasy points against the Broncos in week 10. But, now they have Derek Anderson and the Cardinals at home. I'll take any home defense against the Cardinals.

Shit Picks

QB: Matt Schaub... Difficult matchup on the road at Philadelphia, whose defense has a league-leading 16 interceptions.

RB: Darren McFadden... He might break one, but will have a tough time consistently getting yards against a Steelers defense allowing just 2.8 yards/carry.

WR: Brandon Marshall... The Bears have allowed just six passing touchdowns, good for best in the NFL.

TE: Rob Gronkowski... 25 fantasy points in week 10. Do not expect anywhere close to a repeat performance. In fact, I don't even think he'll be the best Patriots tight end this week(Aaron Hernandez).

K: Billy Cundiff... Extra points, but don't expect more than a single field goal try or so against a Panthers team the Ravens should destroy.

D/ST: San Diego Chargers... The Broncos' passing game is terrific, and I don't expect that to change in what is a must-win if they hope to stay alive in the AFC West race.


My Week 10 picks(Notably good picks in green; notably bad picks in red)...

Best: Eli Manning(19 points), Arian Foster(11 points), Reggie Wayne(3 points), Jacob Tamme(7 points), Rob Bironas(6 points), New York Giants(1 point).

Sleepers: David Garrard(24 points), LeGarrette Blount(15 points), Mike Sims-Walker(2 points), Brandon Pettigrew(5 points), Lawrence Tynes(9 points), San Francisco 49ers(3 points).

Shit: Brett Favre(2 points), Matt Forte(6 points), Miles Austin(12 points), Tony Gonzalez(3 points), Ryan Longwell(6 points), Baltimore Ravens(1 point).
