Week 11 2011

Join us for last minute decisions… Things are getting more difficult in fantasy football as the playoffs approach and injuries pile up. Do you have some tough roster decisions? Well, that’s what we are here for. Every Sunday we take the data we have from FantasyFootballCrystalBall.com (which includes  Read More…

We had some sorting out to do in a very close week and with the slew of Thanksgiving games things got crazy. So, we finally have the results for you of the Week 11 Fantasy Football Crystal Ball Accuracy Challenge. SportingNews.com was not only the most accurate expert site for Week 11, but they had the best week accuracy-wise of any site for the year thus far.

Kansas City has been awarded Orton although there are rumors that he might not report – regardless we won’t be returning for another stint in Chicago.The Broncos are clearly committed to Tim Tebow for the remainder of the season and they are now looking to get out of paying the rest of former starter Kyle Orton’s salary. It’s a smart move for a team that knows they aren’t going to get any use out of Orton and is currently stuck with his bill when there are three teams that have lost their starting QBs. If Orton reports to KC – its a significant upgrade for Dwayne Bowe for the remainder of the season.

We always like these kind of articles. They are entertaining and useful and there are a lot of names in this particular one from our friends at football.razzball.com. We like that they provide some playoff insight and who you might want to buy heading into the championship tournament for your leagues.

Things are going from bad to worse for a Buffalo Bills team that showed a lot of promise in the first half of the season but who’s wheels are quite literally falling off right now. Jackson will be inactivefor Week 12 against the Jets.

Jeremy Maclin (shoulder) practiced this morning, but that doesn’t ncessarily mean that he will play. According to Reuben Frank (via Twitter) Andy Reid wasn’t sure Maclin would participate in the afternoon practice. This is a promising sign either way and we are getting the feeling that the Eagles, facing a must win game, will play Maclin. Desean Jackson, recovering from a foot sprain, had swelling today and did not practice, not a good sign at all. Vick once again did not participate in practice with fractured ribs.

Each week FFSpin will analyze the matchups and provide our take on which WR’s should be splitting out wide for your fantasy teams and which players face difficult matchups with shut down corners and should be avoided if possible. We take several variables into account including matchups, injuries, potential weather problems, arrests, drug busts, baby mama trauma and all of the other problems that Bengals face. We don’t deal with the must-start kind of receivers in this article; rather we look at guys that may be catapulted by circumstances into the upper echelon for this week and guys that could be cast out of the happy heights of fantasy success for a week.

By now you know the bad news, Jay Cutler is done for at least the rest of the regular season. Compounding that bad news is the fact theat Caleb Haney is the new starting QB for the Chicago Bears. The Monsters of the Midway were really looking good and while there weren’t going to beat the Packers out for the division title they looked like a real contender for a wildcard berth. According to reports, Cutler should be recovered from surgery in time to participate in the team’s first playoff game – if they make it that far.
