This week I wanted to talk about which players to add for week 11 of the NFL season. Most of theses players are available in most leagues. There were some pretty big surprises last week, mostly concerning the Washington Redskins. Head Coach Mike Shanahan decided to go with Ryan Torain as his starting running back instead of the Roy Helu, who had a good week 9. Coach Shanhan also decided to go with Rex Grossman as his starting quarterback instead of John Beck. If you need help on your team these players might be what you are looking for.
Damian Williams (WR) Titans: Had a great week 10 with 107 yards receiving and one touchdown. The 2nd year player from USC has proven the last few weeks to be Matt Hasselbeck’s main target. Williams teammate Nate Washington has produced low numbers the past 4 weeks. Look for Williams to get more involved in the Titans passing game.
Lance Ball (RB) Broncos: With Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno going down yesterday against the Chiefs, Lance Ball came into the game and carried the ball 30 times for 95 yards. McGahee and Moreno’s injuries looked to be severe so this means that Ball will start their next game. With a favorable match up against the Jets Thursday, look for Ball to get double-digit fantasy points.
Laurent Robinson (WR) Cowboys: Robinson has come out of no where to be one of the main receivers in Dallas. Yesterday he had 73 yards and two touchdowns. With Miles Austin being injured he is now the number 2 receiver for the Cowboys. He has four touchdowns in his last three games. If Austin keeps missing games that means that Robinson will likely continue the production.
Don’t Pick Up
Any RBs in Washington: Coach Shanahan surprised everyone and started Ryan Torian at RB instead of Roy Helu. Torian did no produce at all. He had 11 carries for 20 yards. Until we know which one will start stay away from both.
Delone Carter (RB) Colts: Carter looked to be the feature RB in Indianapolis when Joseph Addai went down with an injury and he was. He had a good first start, but since then he has done poorly. With his counterpart Donald Brown passing him on the depth chart Carter’s carries have been in the single digits. Brown has done well in the starting role, and he does not look to give that up.
