Now with only two more weeks before the Fantasy Football playoffs, wins are more important than ever as playoff position is on the line. For a review of what happened last week as well as some advice for the final five weeks, check the Fantasy Football Week 11 Recap below.
Aaron Rodgers has scored over 25 fantasy points in five straight weeks, and has lead all quarterbacks in scoring for consecutive weeks. He is the top fantasy quarterback heading into the final five weeks of the season….Ben Roethlisberger put up nearly ten less fantasy points in the past two weeks on-the-road (29.7 points) than he did in his pervious game at home (39.10 points). So far this season Roethlisberger has been the best fantasy quarterback at home (31.04 points per game) and simply pedestrian on-the-road (14.38 points per game) ….Consecutive games of over 20 fantasy points scored should put Josh McCown on your radar, especially if you’re having quarterback problems. With a game against the Bears up next he’ll be a top 10 play in Week 12.
Prior to Week 11, the Denver Broncos run defense had allowed 234 rushing yards on 95 carries in their past six games. That’s an average of 2.5 yards per carry. Tre Mason ran for 113 yards in Week 11, almost half what the Broncos had given up in the past month and a half combined. Mason appears poised for a breakout to end the season. …Ahmad Bradshaw has over 700 yards and eight touchdowns on the season. Half of his 38 receptions went for first downs as he has been a welcomed spark for one of the NFL’s top scoring teams. Make no mistake his absence will effect this Colts offense.
Four out of the top six receivers in fantasy football are either catching passes from Peyton Manning or Aaron Rodgers. With Emmanuel Sanders banged up with a concussion, Wes Welker and Andre Caldwell should be on your radar for next week. If Sanders sits each is a must-start, especially with Julius Thomas on the mend as well….In his last three games Mike Evans has amassed 458 receiving yards and five touchdowns, leading an already impressive group of rookie wide receivers. He has 46 receptions on the year and 17 of them (or 37%) have gone for 20 yards or more. …This season started with a 110 yard 2 touchdown game by Allen Hurns in the opening week as 2014 has clearly been the Year of the Rookie Wide Receiver. Sammy Watkins, Kelvin Benjamin, Mike Evans, Brandin Cooks, Odell Beckham Jr., John Brown, Martavis Bryant, Allen Robinson, Jordan Matthews, and Jarvis Landy have all made a significant impact on their respective teams. Each of these players appears to be ready for a successful NFL career, and with Doante Adams, Marqise Lee, Paul Richardson, and Cody Latimer all waiting for their chance , this rookie receiving class could be one for the ages.
