Fantasy football Week 11 is upon us, as this week's NFL action kicks off tonight with the Chicago Bears heading to Miami to take on the Dolphins.
As you already know, the fantasy football playoffs are just a few weeks away now, and we're getting to the most crucial part of the season.
Some of you may already be eliminated from contention, but I'm here to help the guys that are still very much alive in the playoff hunt.
Let's take a look at 20 start 'em, sit 'em locks that could send you to the promised land.
Marshawn Lynch has a tough test against the New Orleans Saints on the road this week, but I know that's not enough to convince you to sit him on your bench.
So here's another little nugget oh info: In his last three games Lynch has rushed for 84 yards on 33 carries.
I'm no mathematician, but that's a pretty terrible average that looks especially bad when you consider the fact that he has just two touchdowns all season.
The Bears don't have a great matchup against Miami's sixth-ranked pass defense, but Greg Olsen has been a favorite red zone target of Jay Cutler in recent weeks.
Though Olsen has just six catches the past two games, he's scored two touchdowns.
If your other options are pretty slim and you're looking for a "go big or bust" type of player, Olsen's worth a look.
The Minnesota Vikings are basically done, but Brett Favre will continue to play because his streak is still at stake.
But Favre has thrown more than twice as many interceptions (nine) as he has touchdowns (four) in the team's past four games.
If you throw out that monster performance against a bad Cardinals team, Favre hasn't really had a great game all season.
Plus, with all that wear and tear on his shoulder and ankle, he's gotta break down at some point.
The Rams will take on the Atlanta Falcons in St. Louis this week in a nice matchup of two promising young quarterbacks.
I obviously expect Matt Ryan to have a big day, but I like Sam Bradford this week as well.
The Falcons rank 23rd against the pass and showed earlier in the season against Kevin Kolb and Carson Palmer that they can get torched on any given week.
Remember how Felix Jones was supposed to have a breakout season as the Cowboys' primary back?
Well, I'm waiting...waiting...still waiting...
The fact is that Jones has done diddly squat for most of the season even if he did have a nice performance against the Giants last week.
I need to see more consistency out of this guy before I'm a believer.
Reggie Bush hasn't played since Week 2, but I think he might be worth taking a shot on in three-RB or flex leagues.
The Saints play the Seahawks this week, and Seattle has the tendency to get destroyed every now and again.
Bush will certainly be involved in the New Orleans offense, so I'd roll the dice on him if you've got nothing else to lose.
Jeremy Shockey's has put up a solid eight catches for 88 yards and one touchdown recently...and by recently, I mean the Saints' last four games.
There's just way too many options on that offense for Shockey to be a consistent performer.
He hasn't had more than three catches since Week 5 and was held to just one catch for seven yards in his last game.
This one's a no-brainer.
Santonio Holmes has emerged as the Jets' biggest threat in the passing game over the last two weeks, catching 10 passes for 190 yards and a touchdown.
The Jets have a very favorable matchup against the horrific Texans pass defense this week, so Mark Sanchez should be able to throw the ball all over the place.
And Holmes will get a big chunk of that yardage against a defense that gives up a ton of big plays.
I know the Washington Redskins didn't give Donovan McNabb that ridiculous contract because of his recent performance.
In his last three games, McNabb has failed to top 17 completions and has thrown more interceptions (six) than touchdowns (four).
With a not-so-friendly matchup on the road against Tennessee, he could have another long day at the office.
Jon Kitna carved up the New York Giants' No. 1 defense on the road in Week 10 for 327 yards and three touchdowns.
So he should have a blast against the Lions at home this week, who are mediocre at best on the defensive side of the ball.
Plus, it's hard to argue against starting a quarterback on a team with that many weapons in the passing game.
I really feel bad for Steve Smith, who is one of the league's most talented receivers but is stuck on a terrible Panthers team.
With the mess that is Carolina's quarterback position, Smith hasn't gotten into the end zone since Week 2, has a season high of 85 receiving yards and has only two games with more than four receptions.
And this week Smith has a bad matchup against the Ravens that shouldn't change his luck at all.
BenJarvus Green-Ellis has been a pleasant fantasy football surprise this season, with six touchdowns through New England's first nine games.
What I really like about him this week though is that he's coming off an 87-yard performance on just 18 touches against the Steelers.
Green-Ellis did what no other running back in the league has been able to do in 2010, and he has a favorable matchup against the Colts this week.
I know that Cedric Benson has a phenomenal matchup against the Buffalo Bills league-worst run defense this week, but that didn't matter against the Indianapolis Colts terrible run-D last week.
Benson just can't get anything going.
He was held to 24 yards on 14 carries by the Colts in Week 10 and hasn't topped 20 carries or 70 yards since Week 5.
There's nothing that leads me to believe he'll break out of that slump anytime soon.
Michael Crabtree's numbers aren't going to blow anybody away, but he's really improved as the season has progressed.
Crabtree has scored in four of San Francisco's last five games, including two straight contests with Troy Smith at the helm.
Maybe that's a sign that Smith-Crabtree will be the No. 1 hookup for the 49ers as long as Smith is behind center.
Oh, Brandon Marshall, where art thou?
The Dolphins wide receiver has been held to five catches or less in five of Miami's last six games, and he hasn't topped 65 receiving yards since Week 6.
Oh yeah, I forgot to mention that he has just one touchdown all season and will be playing with a third-string quarterback this week.
Let him ride the pine.
Green Bay Packers wide receiver James Jones has really benefited with the injuries to Jermichael Finley and Donald Driver.
In Green Bay's last game, Jones caught eight passes for 123 yards and a touchdown.
His production will probably go down a bit with the return of Driver, but we all know that the Packers live and die by the pass so Jones will get his chances.
Hines Ward suffered a concussion against the Patriots last week and probably shouldn't even be starting against the Raiders in Week 11.
We all know he'll wind up playing, but he should still have a firm spot on your bench.
Ward has just six catches for 25 yards in the last two complete games that he's played, and Oakland boasts the league's No. 2 pass defense.
I don't care what his attitude is like or how many teams he plays for this season, I'm a firm believer that Randy Moss should be a fantasy football starter until he retires.
Even though he had just one catch in his Titans debut, he has the potential to go off this week.
Tennessee takes on the Washington Redskins in Week 11, and we all know what happened the last time that team tried to play defense.
Thomas Jones has struggled mightily in Kansas City's last three games.
He has just 112 rushing yards on 42 carries, has caught only two passes and has failed to score a touchdown.
With Jamaal Charles carrying a bigger load recently, I'd expect that trend to continue.
Fred Jackson is coming off a 133-yard, one touchdown performance in Week 10.
C.J. Spiller is probably not going to play against the Bengals in Week 11.
