Fantasy Football's Top Scorers from NFL Week 11
The 11th week of the NFL season has just about come and gone, and this week's action brought with it plenty of excitement, surprises and at least one injury that may have devastated more than a few fantasy football teams.
It's always a massive blow when your squad loses one of the top fantasy scorers in a given week.
So who got snakebitten? Read on and find out!
Note: These scores were tabulated using a PPR scoring system that awards one point for 10 rushing or receiving yards or for 25 passing yards and each reception. It awards six points for all touchdowns and subtracts two points for turnovers.

One of the most surprising games of Week 11 was no doubt the contest in Houston, where a one-win Jacksonville Jaguars team took a one-loss Houston Texans club to overtime before eventually falling 43-37.
Texans quarterback Matt Schaub led the Texans back from a 14-point, fourth-quarter deficit to notch the win. By the time all was said and done, the ninth-year veteran had passed for a gaudy 527 yards and five touchdowns.

Raise your hand if you correctly predicted that a fourth-year fullback starting at tailback would score more fantasy points in Week 11 than Arian Foster of the Houston Texans and Doug Martin of the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Put your hand down, you liar.
Still, that's exactly what happened, as Marcel Reese of the Oakland Raiders rushed for 103 yards and added 90 more on four receptions to pace all ball-carriers in a slow fantasy week for the position.

It may have been a slow week for running backs, but the same can't be said for wide receivers.
In fact, two wideouts in the same game broke the 200-yard barrier in Sunday's shootout in Houston.
With that said, it was Andre Johnson of the Houston Texans who emerged from Week 11 as fantasy football's top player at his position, as his 14 catches for a mind-blowing 273 yards and a touchdown single-handedly won fantasy games this week.
TE: Rob Gronkowski, New England Patriots (32 Pts)

It was a bittersweet day for fantasy owners of New England Patriots tight end Rob Gronkowski.
It was sweet that Gronkowski's seven catches for 137 yards and two touchdowns led all tight ends in fantasy points, marking the third time in four games that the third-year pro has scored twice.
However, his fantasy owners are plenty bitter after Gregg Rosenthal of NFL.com reported that Gronkowski broke his forearm against the Indianapolis Colts and will miss the next four to six weeks.
