Week 11 Start 'Em, Sit 'Em: Carson Palmer and Players You Won't Regret Starting

0 of 7

    Fantasy football has brought some new names to the list of all-stars this season, especially in the last couple weeks.

    If your team has some players on a bye week, this could be a blessing in disguise, as some very good players are still in the player pool in most leagues.

    Whether you are looking to continue dominating your league or are trying to muster up a team that can produce a win for Week 11, here are some players that you won't regret putting in your starting lineup.

Carson Palmer

1 of 7

    Carson Palmer resurrected his football life when he was traded to the Raiders in Week 7.

    Four weeks later, Palmer is finding his groove in the Raiders offense. Being a Top 10 fantasy quarterback in the last two weeks, Palmer could find himself in the same category as he faces the Minnesota Vikings.

    The Vikings have allowed 13 touchdowns and no interceptions to opposing quarterbacks in the last four weeks. Keep in mind that they had to play the great Aaron Rodgers twice.

    Palmer seems to be in an ideal situation to rack up some yardage as he faces a Vikings defense that recently lost Antoine Winfield for the season, as well.

    If Palmer is still available in your league or riding your teams' bench, you better think about starting him.

Marshawn Lynch

2 of 7

    Marshawn "Beast Mode" Lynch has finally found his playoff running style in the last couple of weeks as he scored two touchdowns in two games.

    It would be a normal type of game for a running back, but Lynch did this off of two very good defenses in the NFL in Baltimore and Dallas.

    Now the Seahawks face the Rams, who have been getting stronger against the run, but still have many holes they have to fill.

    Lynch is sure to reach double-digits in fantasy leagues everywhere and he is worth starting in Week 11.

Laurent Robinson

3 of 7

    Laurent Robinson has stepped up to fill the void left by Miles Austin and has done an excellent job.

    Robinson has had a beastly four-week span fantasy wise and has been consistent when he plays.

    He racked up four touchdown receptions in the last three weeks and looks to continue this progress when he faces Washington.

    Washington is fairly strong against the pass, but Romo is confident and will be able to dissect the defense and find ways to get all his options the ball. 

Denarius Moore

4 of 7

    Another Raider in the Start 'em section in fantasy football is wide out Denarius Moore.

    Moore reeled in five catches last week for 123 yards and two touchdowns. 

    The hype alone might warrant fantasy owners to start him, but there's more to it.

    Moore has been the most targeted wide receiver since Palmer has taken over. In his two games with Palmer at the helm, he has seen 19 targets.

    He is also playing Minnesota, who allowed seven touchdown receptions to opposing wide receivers in the past for weeks.

    The stage is set for a good game for Moore this week.

Reggie Bush

5 of 7

    Reggie Bush is finally becoming the decent fantasy player people wanted him to become about four years ago.

    Now he has emerged as the Dolphins No. 1 back, mainly due to Daniel Thomas' injury problems but nonetheless he will get a lot of looks.

    He has played well in his last three weeks, as he scored a touchdown per game and continues to steal the show from Thomas.

    He is facing a Bills defense which was just trounced by the Cowboys and has allowed 11 touchdowns to opposing running backs this season.

    Bush will be a solid starter this week, so don't be afraid to put him in your lineup.

Ryan Fitzpatrick

6 of 7

    Ryan Fitzpatrick took the football world by storm early this season but has calmed down tremendously as of late.

    Fitzpatrick will find his groove this week against the lackluster Dolphins defense.

    Look for Fitzpatrick to find his September groove again in a must-win game for the Bills.

    He also has Fred Jackson to give the ball to and  will allow his receivers to get open throughout the game.

    The balanced attack of the Bills will look to benefit Fitzpatrick this week.

Greg Olsen

7 of 7

    Greg Olsen has been one of Cam Newton's favorite targets this season, especially as of late.

    OIsen has found the end zone two times in the last four weeks and looks to do it again this week.

    The Panthers are also facing a Lions defense that is not that great against opposing tight ends and that Olsen is accustomed to, having played for the Bears. 

    Tight ends are always make or break in fantasy and this pickup might just make your team win the game this week.
