NFL Fantasy Notebook (Week 11)
Quarterback: Drew Brees could have single handily brought fantasy teams to a win. He’s now considered a top flight fantasy player, ranking only behind Carson Palmer, Peyton Manning, and Tom Brady.
Running back: Stephen Jackson limited to 6 yards, 16 receiving yards, and a fumble. Who knew the Arizona defense had it in them?
Dallas situation with Julius Jones and Marion Barber might end up like last years Pittsburgh tandem of Duce Staley picking up the majority of the yards and Jerome Bettis putting it in for the touchdown.
Wide Receiver: Everyone is waiting for a scoop on the Terrell Owens situation, maybe he’ll get released, and someone will be able to pick up a bona-fide all world player. Many teams are shying away; the only team that seems to have no comment on situation has been the Dallas Cowboys. Matt Jones of the Jaguars has been turning it up, catching a touchdown the last 2 games.
Tight End: Everyone with Antonio Gates should not worry, it looks like he won’t miss any time off. Randy McMichael was shut out completely by the Cleveland Browns, people might have under-estimated their defense, which is 4th in the AFC in Pts allowed, though much stronger against the pass than the run.
Kicker: Neil Rackers of the Arizona Cardinals is having a monster season. He is actually ranked in the top 20 of total players in the league for fantasy point production. The 2nd most for kickers is Jay Feely in the mid 40’s. Thank you Arizona for hardly ever getting all the way to the endzone.
Defense: Denver Broncos gave the Jets a pounding. Those who picked up Denver defense was in for a treat. Everyone should just follow the strategy of picking up whoever the Jets have as an opponent. Oakland will be available in most leagues also, there facing Miami, who might pack it in for the rest of the season.
