The Week 11 injury report is the shortest that it's been all season, so fantasy owners rejoice! A lot of the suspense has already been removed with several players being ruled out prior to Sunday, including Rob Gronkowski and Jeremy Maclin.
Bye weeks in the NFL are starting to wrap up, with just six teams on bye over the next three weeks, which is music to the ears of many fantasy owners. For quarterback purposes, the only relevant players that are off in Week 11 are Matt Ryan and Philip Rivers.
As the fantasy playoffs approach, it's more important than ever to grab those last few wins. Nobody wants to be left on the outside looking in because of a dud two-point performance. Make sure to check your lineup before the games start and put your team in the best position to win.
By this point in the fantasy season the running back landscape usually bears no resemblance to the preseason rankings. Injuries, depth chart changes and other various factors seem to affect RBs more than any other position in fantasy. Owners often have to get creative with their lineup decisions in order to squeeze out a few extra points every week.
Tom Brady was the top-ranked fantasy quarterback for Week 10, however, he didn't throw a touchdown (thanks, LeGarrette Blount) and he threw his first interception of the season. The good news is that New England faces San Francisco this Sunday, which is a recipe for a get-right game for the offense.
Arizona has recorded at least one sack on defense in every game so far this season, which is something a fantasy owner looks for from their defense/special teams (DST) unit. After not allowing an opposing DST to score double-digit fantasy points (depending on league scoring) to start the season, Minnesota has not been near as stingy since its Week 6 bye.
