To help you set your final lineup this weekend, here are my week 11 fantasy football players to start and sit:
Guys to Start:
QB Carson Palmer, OAK (vs. NO) – Palmer plays a Saints’ defense that has given up 19 passing touchdowns on the year.
RB Steven Jackson, STL (vs. NYJ) – Jackson went over 100 yards rushing for the first time last week and has scored in two of his last three games. Expect him to have a big game against a New York defense that is allowing over 145 yards against per contest.
WR Jordy Nelson, GB (@ DET) – Nelson will be back in the lineup for the cheeseheads, so make sure he is in your fantasy lineup this weekend.
TE Heath Miller, PIT (vs. BAL) – With Ben Roethlisberger out this weekend, Byron Leftwich will get the start. Miller is having a great season, so expect the veteran quarterback to look for the tight end often in the middle of the field.
Guys to Sit:
QB Joe Flacco, BAL (@ PIT) – Flacco has officially cooled off after a very strong start, so expect him to continue to struggle against the always tough Pittsburgh secondary.
RB Vick Ballard, IND (@ NE) – Ballard has looked impressive in his brief time as a starter, but he has a tough matchup against a stout Patriots’ front-seven.
WR James Jones, GB (@ DET) – With Jordy Nelson coming back this week and Randall Cobb becoming a fantasy monster, there will not be many balls to go to Jones this Sunday.
TE Vernon Davis, SF (vs. CHI) – The Bears’ defense is playing outstanding this season, so expect Davis to have a rather pedestrian afternoon.
