With Week 11 in Fantasy Football quickly approaching, fantasy owners are often faced with tough decisions.
Who do I start? Whom might I need to sit this week? Should I make a trade for someone? Do I try and pick up a free agent?
One the most thought of questions of all, who do I know I can pretty much count on to give me consistent points this coming week.
These are all questions I think most fantasy owners ponder, week in and week out.
I'd like to share with you the ten most consistent players in fantasy football through Week 11. Take a look:
No. 10: Chris Johnson: RB Tennessee Titans

Chris Johnson had 117 yards and a touchdown on just 17 carries last Sunday.
He averages 93.1 yards and one touchdown per game. He and has nine touchdowns through Week 10.
Almost a lock for points every week!
No. 9: Brandon Lloyd: WR Denver Broncos

Lloyd had six catches for 90 yards and two touchdowns in Sunday's game against the Chiefs. Lloyd is averaging 20.17 yards per on his 48 catches.
He remains an elite fantasy wide receiver this season and leads the NFL in receiving yards with 968. He averages 107.6 yards per game and has six touchdowns.
Almost another lock every week!
No. 8: Payton Hillis: RB Cleveland Browns
Look at this monster!

Hillis ran for 82 yards and a touchdown on Sunday's overtime loss to the Jet's. Hillis averages 80.7 yards per game and has eight touchdowns going into this week.
He's been getting a lot of press lately and deservedly so—he's been crushing opponents. He ran for 184 yards and two touchdowns two weeks ago against the 7-2 New England Patriots.
You almost know the Browns will hand the ball to Hillis when they're close to the goal line.
No. 7: Phillip Rivers: QB San Diego Chargers

Rivers went 17 of 23 for 295 yards and four touchdowns in a win over the Texans on Sunday.
He's averaging 327.1 yards per game with a quarterback rating of 102.9. He is the league leader in passing yards with 2,944 yards and 19 touchdowns to his eight interceptions.
A MUST start every single week he is available.
No. 6: Terrell Owens: WR Cincinnati Bengals

Owens caught 10 passes for 141 yards and two touchdowns in the Bengal's 27-21 loss to the Steelers over a week ago on Monday Night Football.
I never thought I'd say this, but at the age of 37 T.O. is hauling in two touchdown passes seemingly every week.
Good for him.
No. 5: Calvin Johnson: WR Detroit Lions

Calvin Johnson caught a game-high 10 passes for 128 yards with a touchdown in Sundays 14-12 loss at Buffalo.
He scored a 20-yard touchdown with 14 seconds left to cut the deficit to two points.
Johnson has 679 receiving yards thus far and nine touchdowns and averages 75.4 yards per game.
No. 4: Michael Vick: QB Philadelphia Eagles

Michael Vick opened Monday night's game with an 88-yard touchdown pass to DeSean Jackson and never looked back.
He completed 20 of 28 passes for 333 yards and four touchdowns.
Vick became the first player in NFL history to throw for 300 yards, run for 50, throw for four touchdowns and run for two touchdowns in the same game.
Do I need to go on?
No. 3: Adrian Peterson: RB Minnesota Vikings

Although Peterson was held to a season-low 51 yards on 17 carries against the Bears, he's still run for 908 yards and seven touchdowns. He averages 100.9 yards per game.
I'd take a consistent 100-yard rusher week in and week out any day! Look for him to bounce back this week vs. Green Bay.
No. 2: Roddy White: WR Atlanta Falcons
Kevin C. Cox/Getty Images
White recorded a pair of touchdown catches and now has seven touchdowns on the season. He finished the game with 138 yards on 12 catches.
White's posted at least four catches in every game this season and seven or more catches in five games.
He's averaging 103.8 yards per game and totals 934 receiving yards thus far.
Again, a MUST start!
No. 1: Arian Foster: RB Houston Texans

Foster scored a touchdown in Sunday's loss at Jacksonville and finished with 56 yards on 15 carries.
However, he's rushed for 920 yards this season, averages 102.2 yards per game and has scored 10 touchdowns.
Look for him to be the potential dagger for the upcoming New York Jet's.
Bonus Slide: Antonio Gates: TE San Diego Chargers

WHEN healthy, Antonio Gates is almost an automatic. He's been hurt for a good portion of the last few games but has still been able to amass 663 receiving yards and nine touchdowns for a tight end.
Gates is one of Phillip Rivers' favorite targets. A MUST start when healthy, even fairly healthy As long as he can get on the field, play him!
