MUST STARTS For Week 11

I’m backkkkkkk!

You probably didn’t notice, but I was gone for a bit. I got a new job, and was doing some training, but I’m back now and ready to drop my fantasy football knowledge on the best viewers in fantasy football community.

First off, I just want to say FakePigskin is YOU. What I mean by that is you, the fans, make us what we are. Without you guys we’d be nothing. We look forward to launching the most up-to-date news and dropping knowledge and humor on you along the way. After all, fantasy football is a game! Have some fun.

Down to business. Play these guys in Week 11!

 

QUARTERBACK

1. Robert Griffin III (WAS) – Yes. You MUST START RG3 in Week 11. I know, I know, I too am an RG3 owner and he has been, well, not so good. But this week he gets the Failadelphia… I mean, the PHILADELPHIA Eagles.

The Eagles this season are giving up 307 passing yards per game (31st in the NFL), and also have given up 15 total passing TDs this season, which ranks the middle of pact in the NFL this season.

Big question to RG3 owners: Will he FINALLY get a rushing TD? Maybe. The Eagles have not given up a rushing TD to a QB all season. But, I have a gut feeling he will this week. He’s RG(insert explicit language here)3!

Projection: 301 passing yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT, 28 rushing yards, 1 rushing TD

 

2. Matt…. Ryan (ATL) – I use the dots because I know, I know, he’s been EXTREMELY underwhelming thus far. Yes he ranks in the top-8 in passing, but for Matty Ice 16 TDs and 10 INTs is not him. He’s getting some weapons back and he takes on what we all thought was going to be a stellar, but what is a not-so-stellar Tampa Bay secondary. This defense got torched by Rishard Matthews. Start Ryan.

Projections: 288 passing yards, 3 TDs, 1 INT

 

RUNNING BACK

1. Andre Ellington (ARZ) – Rashard Mendenhall who? Ellington has been a beast! He didn’t get a huge load last week (11 carries, 55 yards), but he’s been good all season and this week he takes on the $7-a-ticket Jaguars. Jacksonville ranks dead last in the NFL in rushing TDs allowed at 14 or about 1.5 per game and is also dead last in rushing yards given up at 153…. They’re bad.

Projections: 115 rushing yards, 2 TDs, 2 receptions, 21 yards

 

2. Trent Richardson (IND) – (Please God, please let me be right…) YES. T-RICH is going to GET. IT. DONE. This week at the Titans. The Titans, though a decent pass defense, have a horrible rush defense. They rank in the bottom third of the league (21st overall) in rush defense, with double digit TDs and just over 4 yards per carry. Yes, T-Rich has, for lack of a better word, SUCKED during his time with the Colts this season, but T-Rich will reward his owners this week.

Projections: 93 rushing yards, 1 TD, 3 receptions, 31 yards.

 

WIDE RECEIVER

1. Riley Cooper (PHI) – Ahh yes, Mr. Riley Cooper. The former soon-to-be-cut Eagle after his racial remarks, he’s launched himself in to the WR1 category with QB Nick Foles. He’s been a BEAST when Foles plays. They take on Washington this year…. Yeah…

Projections: 6 receptions, 101 yards, 1 TD

 

2. Vincent Jackson (TB) – Praying to God he does something. Enough with the “Glennon throws to much” BS. THROW. THE. BALL. Vincent Jackson is a freak. Just throw it in his general direction and he’ll get it! Remember the last time he played Atlanta? No? Does a 10 catch, 138 yards receiving and 2 TD performance jog your memory? Only difference they’re at home against the same lame-duck Atlanta secondary.

Projections: 7 receptions, 126 yards receiving, 1 TD

 

TIGHT END

1. Scott Chandler (BUF) – To be rash, he sucked last week. But this week he gets to take on the Jets. Yes, their rush defense has been stellar thanks to Sedrick Ellis and Co., but they’re not good against the tight end.  Last time around against the Jets he had a score and nearly 80 yards receiving on 6 catches. He’ll be a top-10 play this week.

Projections: 4 receptions, 47 yards, 1 TD

 

Again – Thank you, the viewers for making FakePigskin what it is today. You’re the best.
