NFL Week 11 Fill-ins
Has the injury bug hit you? Are you faced with bad matchups? Well, maybe I can help. Here are some guys you can plug-in this weekend.
Matt Schaub – Yes, Schaub should return after missing the Oakland game prior to Houston’s bye, but more importantly his favorite weapon, Andre Johnson, is back.
Kurt Warner – I hope you listened when I told you to use him last week (259 yards and 3 TDs). If not, get him out there this week. He faces a Cincinnati team that gets arrested just slightly more than it allows quarterbacks to have monster games.
Kyle Boller – If you’re really hurting, Boller may be a decent play against Cleveland.
Laurence Maroney – Has he been wasting away on your bench? Well, fret not. He should be useful against Buffalo. He had 103 yards against the Bills in Week 3.
Chester Taylor – Now that AD Peterson is out with a knee injury, Chester gets his starting gig back. Facing a weak Oakland run defense helps matters.
Andre Johnson – You held on to him for a reason. Put him back out there. He faces a soft New Orleans team.
Chris Henry – He’s back. I wanted to give the smooth criminal a week before I trusted him. He went for 99 yards against Baltimore, and could be in line for a decent game against Arizona. He’s too good to be covered by nickle cornerbacks. The only drawback is he could get arrested over the weekend.
Mark Clayton – He caught 8 balls last week against Cincinnati. He should be busy again vs. Cleveland.
Alge Crumpler - He returned last week and scored a TD. If you’re starting someone like Jeff King, Alge should be a nice upgrade.
Shayne Graham – Nothing makes you a hotter commodity than kicking seven FGs in a one game. That is besides kicking eight like Rob Bironas did earlier this year.
Oakland – They are facing Minnesota…without Adrian Peterson…with Tarvaris Jackson.
Philadelphia – Their defense hasn’t been as solid as it has been in past years, but facing Miami and rookie John Beck may bring back memories of Gang Green.
