Fantasy owners got a one-week hiatus from bye weeks in Week 10, but idle teams return to the schedule in Week 11 for the last time this season.
Check on the waiver wire this week for a few bye week replacements as well as some talent to stash on the bench.
Carson Palmer, Raiders [299-2-1]
I think this is the type of performance the Raiders had in mind when they traded half of Oakland to Cincinnati for Palmer.
John Skelton, Cardinals [315-3-2; 4-15]
Quarterback controversy in Arizona? Larry Fitzgerald owners sure hope Skelton continues to start.
Lance Ball, Broncos [30-96]
Willis McGahee and Knowshon Moreno got hurt on the same day. Liked Ball all season, mentioned him before, now he may get more PT.
Chris Ogbonnaya, Browns [19-90; 2-19]
Hate trusting the Browns right now, but for owners in a pinch.
Kendall Hunter, 49ers [6-40-1; 1-4]
Frank Gore has a gimpy ankle and now a bum knee. It was only a matter of time.
D.J. Ware, Giants [9-34; 5-34]
Brandon Jacobs got slower as the game wore on against the 49ers and is useless in the passing game. Opportunity for Ware is there.
Vincent Brown, Chargers [5-97-1]
Two good weeks in a row now filling in for Malcom Floyd. Has earned playing time going forward IMO.
Denarius Moore, Raiders [5-123-2]
Moore took a nap in the middle of the season, came back in a big way against the Chargers on Thursday night.
Earl Bennett, Bears [6-81]
Clearly is Jay Cutler’s go-to receiver. Might the Bears finally have a consistent wide receiver?
Leonard Hankerson, Redskins [8-106]
Liked his debut with John Beck at quarterback last week. Liked his performance with Rex Grossman even better this week.
Harry Douglas, Falcons [8-133]
With Julio Jones banged up again, Douglas steps back into a starting role.
Ed Dickson, Ravens [10-79-2]
I have been touting this guy all year, so hopefully someone got some use out of him this week. I started him last week and got nothing.
Jacob Tamme, Colts [6-75]
Tamme is filling in for the injured Dallas Clark, a role he fulfilled last season. Decent replacement.
Good luck on the wire this week!
