Sunday Morning Gametime

Good morning and hello week 11. There are a number of Marquee games on the slate and all with fantasy implications with most season long re-draft leagues entering the backstretch to the playoffs. Good luck today and here are some last minute Quick takes;

Injury Notes
With Allen Hurns out today, Jaguars wide receiver Marqise Lee should be in for a busy day. Lee enters the day as the league’s No.30 fantasy WR ready to move up the board.

With quarterback Philip Rivers clearing the concussion protocol, the biggest impact will not be with just his receivers today, but running back Melvin Gordon. With Rivers under center, the Bills 22nd ranked run defense won’t be able to stack the line against Gordon.

The Redskins tight end Jordan Reed is out today and with him sidelined, tight end Vernon Davis will handle duties. This matchup could end up having quite a few fireworks today, not only will Davis benefit with Reed’s absence, but wide receiver Jamison Crowder will be busy in the slot.

Today’s Favorites off the Radar
With the Chiefs coming to town, the Giants should be gearing up for a potential shootout (if their offense can keep up). One player not getting a lot of run this week, but could be an early factor is Giants running back Orleans Darkwa. The Giants back should be in line for some heavy work early and could do some damage on the ground. The big question will be can the G-men keep this close long enough for Darkwa to make noise.

The Buccaneers defense is ranked 14th against the run, but through 10 weeks they’ve allowed the 8th most receiving yards and 10th most receptions to opposing running backs. The Dolphins Kenyon Drake has played well in a time-share with Damien Williams and over his last two games he’s rushed for 151 yards, caught 8 passes, and added 45 yards receiving. He could make some noise today.

My Perfect Lineup

This week I am all-in with the Raiders quarterback Derek Carr and his wide receiver Michael Crabtree. They’ll have what should be a favorable matchup against a secondary that’s allowed nearly 290 yards passing per game.

My other receiver is the Buccaneers Mike Evans. The Bucs are on the road and will need all of their playmakers today, including Evans.

The Giants will have their hands full playing the Chiefs today and they could end up playing catch up in the second half. Tight end Evan Engram has become a primary weapon in the Giants pass game and could be in line for a big day.

My running backs today are Kareem Hunt, coming off the bye, head coach Andy Reid will turn his dynamic running back loose, and Adrian Peterson. The Texans have a lot of injuries on the defensive side and Peterson should see a heavy workload today.

Finally running with the favorites today on defense today; the Jaguars matched up with Cleveland. My kicker is Justin Tucker. I can see the Ravens moving the ball, but all season the offense has struggled and Tucker will be called upon.

That's My Take.
