As week eleven of fantasy football approaches, the playing field is getting very hot. Some owners are kissing their playoff hopes goodbye, some are set in at a playoff bid and leading the standings and some are right on the fence. For you owners who need some hope in week eleven, I have mapped out a list of players who could have potentially great games:
Danario Alexander, wide out for the San Diego Chargers, is beginning to prove himself as a promising receiver for Philip Rivers. After coming off of a huge game in week ten, recording 134 yards receiving and a touchdown, Alexander has proved that he can be a factor in the Charger’s passing game. He was involved in 59 of 66 offensive plays against Tampa Bay and now could become the second receiver over Robert Meachem. Some owners may have grabbed him, but if he is available for week eleven, make sure to pick him up. He could be very valuable for this week and weeks to come.
LaRod Stephens-Howling and the Arizona Cardinals head into Atlanta this weekend to face off with the best team in the NFL. Although they are currently the top team, they have become very vulnerable from a loss to the New Orleans Saints that would ruin their perfect season hopes. On top of this, the Falcons are 25th in the league against the rush, letting up 130 yards per game. The Cardinals are refreshed after their bye last week and now go into Atlanta looking to put their second loss on record. Stephens-Howling has recorded two touchdowns in his last three games and has become the hope of the Cardinals backfield. If you added LSH in hopes of banking off a couple of big weeks, this would be one of them. Take him off your bench in week eleven and start him.
Carson Palmer, after coming off a tough loss in week ten to the Baltimore Ravens, proceeds into week eleven looking to break his team’s 3-6 record and their two game losing streak. Although the scoreboard last Sunday read that the Raiders got dog-piled, Palmer did not. He ended the game with 368 passing yards and tacked on two touchdown passes. In his last two games, he has recorded nearly 800 passing yards and six touchdown passes. Those are impressive numbers for the veteran. Although his interception numbers could be better, Palmer plays one of the worst passing defenses in the league this weekend in the New Orleans Saints. Look for him to come out firing to his favorite receiver from last week, Darrius Heyward-Bey, and to put up some big numbers against the Saints secondary. He is a good option to go to in the quarterback position for week eleven.
