Week 11 Top Fantasy Football Performers

Following some big offensive performances this week, we tackle the top scorers in week 11 of NFL action.

 

Quarterback

Matt Schaub, Houston Texans: 43 of 55 for 527 yards, 5 TDs, 2 INTs (47 points)

Schaub has been a dicey start this year. That being said, he has shown improvement as of late, throwing for 10 touchdowns in his last four games as the Texans offense begins to hit their stride. Consider him a solid start this week.

 

Running Back

LaRod Stephens-Howling, Arizona Cardinals: 27 rushes 127 yards 1 TD (18 points)

Stephens-Howling looked like a potential sleeper this week lining up against Atlanta's 25th ranked run defense and he delivered on that promise with a career day. Most of his damage came on two huge runs with the first being for 40 yards and the second for 52. Unfortunately, LaRod proved ineffective when the Cardinals needed him in the second half to run out the clock. With Beanie Wells due back, LaRod's future as a productive starter is sketchy.

 

Wide Receiver

Andre Johnson, Houston Texans: 14 receptions 273 yards, 1 TD. (33 points)

The Houston Texans found themselves in a surprise shootout with the Jacksonville Jaguars in week 11 and Houston QB Matt Schaub's favorite target, Andre Johnson, was the beneficiary. Johnson set career and franchise highs in receptions and yardage, including a game winning 48 yard touchdown grab. While this is just his third 100+ yard game of the season, he remains a must start.

 

Tight End

Garrett Graham, Houston Texans: 8 receptions, 82 yards 2 TDs (20 points)

Graham was yet another beneficiary of a Houston offensive barrage that netted 43 points. Starting tight end Owen Daniels returned to the lineup this week but Graham was still able to record career numbers. Though Daniels is expected to grab the majority of tight end attention going forward, Graham is still considered a solid choice for the immediate future for anyone with need at the position.

 

Kicker

Jay Feeley, Arizona Cardinals: 4 for 4 with 1 extra point (13 points)

Despite a strong week 11 performance, Feely remains a low end fantasy kicker. Feely has managed just one double digit start in nine games this season and doesn't look to be improving that any time soon.

 

Rookie Watch

Justin Blackmon, WR, Jacksonville Jaguars: 7 receptions, 236 yards 1 TD. (29 points)

Blackmon finally crossed the century mark in receiving yards in this breakout performance against the Houston Texans. It's an obvious statement but his 236 yards in week 11 is a career high and his touchdown increased his yearly total to two. With Chad Henne more than likely to keep the starting job, Blackmon could be in for some more productive days in the near future.

 

Free Agent Watch

Garrett Graham, TE, Houston Texans: See Above

Bilal Powell, RB, New York Jets: 11 rushes, 42 yards, 2 TDs. (17 points)

With the Jets quarterback situation being as terrible as it is, New York has to rely on its ground game to deliver the points. Until this week Powell has been less than productive with a few glimpses of potential. Heading down the stretch, he may be worth a flier for a potential start due to injury.
