Happy Wednesday all! Week 11 is done! Here are the two players that exceeded this week:
RB, Thomas Rawls, Seattle Seahawks: 30 Rushes, 209 Yards, 1 TD, 3 Receptions, 46 Yards, 1 TD; ESPN Score: 36
Second string RBs are high demand this season. With RB Marshawn Lynch out with an abdominal injury, Rawls revitalized the Seahawks offense with a huge game, rushing over 200 yards and leading the team to a strong win against the inner-division 49ers.
QB Jameis Winston, Tampa Bay Buccaneers: 19/29, 246 Yards, 5 TDs, 4 Rushes, 16 Yards, 0 TD; ESPN Score: 29
Winston showed his potential to be an elite QB in the league on Sunday. The Tampa Bay QB tied a league record for pass TDs among rookies, scoring 5 TDs against a diminishing Eagles defense. The Bucs look to keep the strong offensive showing when they go against the Colts.
Here are two players that underperformed in week 11:
WR Calvin Johnson, Detroit Lions: 5 Receptions, 88 Yards, 0 TD; ESPN Score: 8
The Lions’ offense has made a lack of plays this season. The team hasn’t stepped up even with the huge scoring potential. Johnson didn’t show his usual game again and received under 100 yards on Sunday. Johnson only played one game with over 100 yards receiving this season — it’s not like him at all.
WR A.J. Green, Cincinnati Bengals: 4 Receptions, 79 Yards, 0 TDs; ESPN Score: 7
Typical first round receiver A.J. Green struggled to help QB Andy Dalton and the offense move the ball on Sunday night. The Cardinals held up a strong defensive stand against Green and the Bengals in week 11’s game. However, Green should have a strong game against the Rams.
Here is someone to look out for Week 12:
RB Latavius Murray, Oakland Raiders
Murray is one strong back that is very underrated in the league this season. he’s a great backup to have for when your RBs have a bye week. Murray should have a strong game against the defense of the Tennessee Titans.
Here is someone you should sit for this week:
RB Eddie Lacy, Green Bay Packers
Lacy is another typical first round RB that fantasy players pick for their team. Although he’s stayed healthy, especially with the amount of starting RBs injured, he hasn’t done much to help the Packers offense. Lacy rushed for 100 yards for the first time this season, an odd move for him. I’d take a risk on some of these second string backs to help out with scoring this weekend.
Good luck to everyone for week 12 and Happy Thanksgiving to all!
