I've been thinking about writing articles on fantasy football for a while now and after some encouragement over the past week or three I've decided to go for it. This article will be in flux as we get things ironed out here so let me know what you would like to see more or less of in this weekly article coming out Thursdays.
We'll tackle College Fantasy Football first.
Projected Top Players for Week 11
Because this is the first fantasy article here on SKOHRboard there is a bit more to discuss because we are almost done with the College Fantasy season. Most leagues should be starting their playoffs this week. I'll quickly go over the "must starts" at each position then detail who you should consider outside of those elite players who put up massive points every week. I'm also only going to cover QBs, RBs, and WRs because if you need help with those other guys, you need way more help than I can give you here.
-Cameron Newton, Auburn Bye
-Dominique Davis, ECU @Rice
-Denard Robinson, Michigan home against Wisconsin
-Colin Kaepernick, Nevada home against New Mexico St.
-Landry Jones, Oklahoma @Baylor
Landry has been on fire lately. Despite a game at Texas A&M where he had his season low QB rating 2 weeks ago he has thrown for over 1,050 yards and 10 TDs in the last 3 games.
-Alex Carder, Western Michigan home against Kent St.
Over the last 4 weeks Carder has put up 140 points while completing 15 TDs. Kent has had a good defense but this guy is riding a hot streak and if you need to pick up someone, according to CBS he is owned in only 7% of leagues.
-David Piland, Houston @Southern Miss.
The Cougars have the 10th best offense the College Football right now and Piland has been the starting QB over the last 6 games or so. Their passing offense is also ranked 9th in College Football.
-LaMichael James, Oregon Bye
-Jacquizz Rogers, Oregon St. home against USC
-Kendal Hunter, Oklahoma St. @Kansas
-Demarco Murray, Oklahoma @Baylor
-Jay Finley, Baylor home against Oklahoma
Finley has been the starting RB at Baylor for the last 5 weeks and has put up 20 pts or more in 4 of them.
-Mikel LeShoure, Illinois home against Northwestern
LeShoure has been the hottest RB in the league over the last 3 weeks putting up 98 pts over that span.
-Mark Ingram, Alabama home against Georgia St.
Georgia St. is the plucky first year team featured in ESPN magazine a few months ago and they are playing Alabama. With Trent Richardson banged up Ingram could stand to rack up the yards as they continue to run the ball and run out the clock.
-Justin Blackmon, Oklahoma St. @Kansas
-Randall Cobb, Bye
-Ryan Broyles, Oklahoma @Baylor
-Lyle Leong, Texas Tech plays home against Weber St.
-Dwayne Harris, East Carolina @Rice
Harris has been the standout WR for an explosive ECU offense over the 2nd half of the season. They are up against Rice who ranks 116 in the nation in points against. Bad for Rice, good for Dwayne.
-Leonard Hankerson, Miami plays home against Virginia Tech
Despite the questionable QB situation in Miami right now it seems Hankerson is safe. They are playing the Hokies this week so it should be a competitive game which means passing. With the new QB Morris, it's been clear that Hankerson is his favorite target and should see plenty of action.
-Alshon Jeffrey plays home against Troy
Troy does not have a very good defense and this game should get out of hand which normally turns into a running backs big day. However Jeffrey is so big and fast that he is a threat to take it to the house from anywhere on the field. I think he'll get a few chances for big plays against Troy.
