    Zombie Hater's Week 11 Round-Up

    So all I have to say is wow. 1st I still think that there are a couple teams that are just coasting and bum on them. But beyond that we have a 5 way tie for 1st place. This is just nuts. Who will pull ahead. Injuries and byes are still a huge factor. And the 5-5 crowd may not be out of it with a win in the right spots. This is going to be close and fun to watch.

    Sit'em and Play'em
    Of course no bye week players or injure players will be in this list

    Sit'em

    Alex Green_-_There is nothing explosive about this guy.

    Titus Young_-_A handful of okay games with a good one does not constitute a starter...just saying

    Jacob Tamme_-_He is being phased from play so he should be phased from your line up

    Danial Thomas_-_I do not buy into the hype neither should you

    Scott Chandler_-_Don't buy into this hype either

    Packers_-_The Lions could score a lot of points making this a bad play

    Brandon Jacobs_-_Um why is he even in, he has not played all season

    Play'em

    Benjarvus Green-Ellis_-_He may not be a stunner but he faces the Chiefs...almost too good to pass up

    Robert Griffin III_-_He should be in against the Eagles, to good to pass up

    James Jones_-_He should see the end zone this weekend

    Jonathan Stewart_-_ Won't be huge but is points on the board

    Andre Johnson_-_Against the Jaguars...a must play

    Mike Leshoure_-_I am not a fan of this guy but this week could be explosive for him

    Danny Amendola_-_This guy needs to be back in your line up

    Aaron Rodgers_-_Christ on Crutches why is he on the bench

    Jason Witten_-_He may have had some down weeks but this is a great time to throw him back in

    Andrew Luck_-_The Patriots do not stop the pass...a good day to play him

    Jeremy Maclin_-_He Hooked up with Foles for a TD, what says he won't again

    Shonne Greene_-_Probably the only offense that the Jets can rely on and that's not a great thing





    Azoic Defenders (GodofInsanity) vs Voodoo Children (Nikvoodoo)

    Matt Schaub vs Matthew Stafford
    The 2 things you can ignore is how Schaub did last week and how he did at his last meeting with the Jaguars. That being said, his performance this weekend lies within how well Foster does. The better he does, the worse Schaub will do. Stafford is on the rebound. Add in the Packers have been letting less capable QB's throw all day against them and Stafford is at home. He has no downsides. Matthew Stafford takes this match.

    John Skelton vs Joe Flacco
    Skelton is a simple antidote. He has not done well as he has gotten into the swing of things after his injury and facing the maybe not so great but good enough to stop him Falcons secondary is not the week to expect him to finally to fall into step. Flacco faces the Steelers who do not allow very many TD's to opposing QB's. So do not expect another 3 TD day here but do not expect a dry spell either. Joe Flacco takes this match.

    Frank Gore vs Steven Jackson
    It looks like Alex Smith for the Niners will play this week after he passed concussion tests. But even then against the Bears, just what do you think that there game plan will be. Gore runs...and runs all day long. Yes the Bears are more than tough against the run but through shear quantity of runs they will not stop Gore from breaking out at least once or twice. I am not sure who slapped Jackson but he came off bye and torched the 49ers who are not too shabby against the run. The Jets are shabby at all things defense right now so lets see if Jackson has a break out game part 2 here. Steven Jackson takes this match.

    Alfred Morris vs C.J. Spiller
    Morris faces an Eagles defense that has just completely fallen apart. In the last 5 games they have allowed 100 yard runners and Morris is sure to be looking for a piece of that action. Spiller is the only game in town this week. Fred Jackson looks to be out due to a concussion. So Spiller should be able to put his explosive talents on show again this week. Alfred Morris takes this match.

    Vincent Jackson vs Steve Johnson
    Well we need to treat Jackson like you would fuel rationing. Since this is an even week and he does well on even weeks he should have a monster game here. Add in its the Panthers and they are not very good at stopping the pass and Freeman and his wide outs have been clicking the last few weeks. Even injured Johnson is the best wide out option for the Bills...which does not bode well. What does bode well that he has scored twice at home. Vincent Jackson takes this match.

    Torrey Smith vs Brian Hartline
    Okay, so Smith faces the Steelers so this week could get a little lean for him but at the same time he is such a deep threat that you cannot totally write him off to having a completely dry weekend. The Dolphins have started to figure out a way to get Hartline open again. Granted its not a huge blow out like we saw at the start of the season but it is a damn good start. Now add in that the Bills struggle holding down wide outs and this game looks very good for Hartline. Brian Hartline takes this match.

    Greg Olsen vs Jimmy Graham
    Now you cannot start anything that includes Graham before you make note that since he has gotten healthy that Brees has 20 times over 3 games and he has reeled in 4 TD's. Now you factor in the Raiders secondary and Brees skill at getting Graham the ball on a regular basis. This all adds into a hell of a game for Graham. Olsen faces a team that is 32nd against the pass. Since they will not have to worry about a run game to stop that may mean they can help out here but do not think that will slow Olsen down. He seems to be the only true offense this team has got this season that is steady every week. Expect Olsen to do well. Jimmy Graham takes this match.

    Lance Moore vs Randall Cobb
    The Raiders secondary is pretty dismal. So the hope here is that Brees will spread the ball around and Moore will come up with some good yards and just maybe a TD. So really we can only hope for this here. There is every possibility of that but also that he is just there for show. Looks like Jennings is still out so this means Cobb is still in. he has been raking in the TD's the last few weeks. And there is nothing to say that he won't continue to do so this week. He does very well in a Dome and even if the Lions are good at stopping the pass usually they have slackened in that department the last few weeks. Randall Cobb takes this match.

    49ers vs Broncos
    There is some doubt if the Niners will rebound after last weeks bad show of defense that surprised everyone except my brother. I figure they will rebound considering there is a very good chance that Cutler will be out with a concussion this week. The Bears may have the same advantage so expect a defensive slug fest here. The Broncos can do it all on defense and they will keep climbing the rankings as they do so. And considering just how bad the Chargers have been this season, this game looks great for them. TheBroncos take this match.


    Nikvoodoo takes this match easily it seems.


    Winter Nom Noms (Mrscott101) vs Paint Huffing Warriors (TCM Revolver)

    Tony Romo vs Tom Brady
    With the establishment of a solid running game, Brady has been able to take it a bit easier but that by no means says that he is down and out. Expect a solid game against a Colts defense that is better than last year but still not good enough to be a factor for Brady's performance. Romo has been a steady passer for fantasy teams so far and this week looks to be no different. Maybe not a huge game but will get good numbers even from what has been a stingy pass defense the last 3 weeks or so. Tom Brady takes this match.

    Andy Dalton vs Ben Roethlisberger
    Okay. Big Ben is tough. He just may play...but I highly doubt it. Dalton has been on fire the last few weeks. And there is no reason to believe that it will stop this week against the Chiefs who like giving up TD's to opposing QB's. Expect a great game from Dalton this week. Andy Dalton takes this match.

    Ryan Mathews vs Matt Forte
    Well we will have to see how Mathews does against the Broncos. They held the Panthers run game down to almost nothing and the Chargers seem to be imploding this season so I do not think that there is much hope here. Keep your fingers crossed I suppose. Forte is going to get a workout this week. There is a good chance that Cutler is out. When that happens you can fully expect the offense to fall directly on Forte's shoulders. It may be a tough day considering that he faces the 49ers who will be looking for redemption after last weeks dismal performance against the Rams. Matt Forte takes this match.

    Alex Green vs Willis McGahee
    Simply put with Green is if you are that far in the hole that you need this below par player in your line up then you may need to evaluate your flex player and make some moves. Green only gets mediocre yards and is easily surpassed by Starks and an awesome passing game. McGahee has the yards, now if he can get a TD he will do good for a fantasy team. And this week facing the Panthers he may just get it. Willis McGahee takes this match.

    A.J. Green vs Wes Welker
    Green is a must play any week. This week he faces the Chiefs and that is even more of a reason to play him. He has gotten a TD in his last 8 games. The Chiefs have nothing that can stop him and with Andy Dalton on fire it is all the better. I do not think that Welker will explode against this surprising Colts defense. But in that same note he will have a solid day as Brady still throws his way at least a half dozen times a game. A.J. Green takes this match.

    Titus Young vs Julio Jones
    Young has had a couple really good games with a couple steady matches in there as well. Other than that he has been pretty much a dude. The Packers kinda flip flop and could be rather generous to opposing wide outs. So he could explode but don't bet on it. Jones could do really well against even against a strong Cardinals secondary. Here is what you have to bet on is that his QB Matt Ryan will get him the ball in enough quantity that no matter how well he is defended that he comes out good. Julio Jones takes this match.

    Brandon Pettigrew vs Jacob Tamme
    Well Pettigrew has finally broken his TD drought since week 2. Yay now we can wait to his post season maybe to see another. He is a talented TE but we have not seen that talent too often this season. He will get you some steady 4 to 5 fantasy points but do not expect much more than that. Tamme looks to have been phased out of the offense by Dreessen. So maybe a change should be done to your line up. Brandon Pettigrew takes this match.

    Daniel Thomas vs Demaryius Thomas
    Daniel came in and had 1 good week after Reggie Bush fumbled early in last weeks game. If you call 5.5 fantasy points good. Bush will be back in. Daniel may have showed some spunk but he is not the lead dog and more than likely won't be. Dem Thomas, bottom line, will have a great game against a struggling Chargers defense. Peyton is on his game and Dem Thomas gets a full work load because of it. Demaryius Thomas takes this match.

    Cardinals vs Giants
    Giants are on bye. The Falcons could be a tough pull for the Cards but in truth they have all the stats for a top defense. So the Falcons could get a bit of surprise if they go in cocky and underestimate this opponent. The Cardinals take this match by default.


    Paint Huffing Warriors should have this match.


    Clear Sights (Clear Sights) vs Team Braindead (Socali)

    Jay Cutler vs Matt Ryan
    Cutler is not expected to play this week. Ryan may not explode like he did the last time he faced the Cardinals as there defense has vastly improved since then. Beyond that little point do expect Ryan to have a good weekend as he will have the ball more than the Cardinals offense and defenses do begin to tire the more they are on the field. Matt Ryan takes this match.

    Josh Freeman vs Brandon Weeden
    Simply put, Weeden will face the 7th best pass defense in the league and as he has struggled over the last couple weeks do not expect this week to be his rebound game. 1St, Freeman has not thrown an interception since week 6. That is very very nice. Add in that he and both of his talented wide outs are clicking and that Doug Martin is a dangerous runner if ignored and Freeman has all the tools for an awesome game against the Panthers. Josh Freeman takes this match.

    Arian Foster vs Marshawn Lynch
    Lynch is on bye. Wow, Foster faces the Jaguars who are 29th against the run. There just is not much better you can hope for from him. Expect him to easily pass the 100 yard mark and at least 1 TD in his future. Arian Foster takes this match by default.

    Darren McFadden vs Micheal Turner
    McFadden looks to be out for his ankle injury still this week. Turner seems to be struggling at times and exploding at others. He should be considered a steady bet in your line up but he has not turned out that way. Last week he should have tore up the Saints defensive line but only manage 15 yards all day. The Cardinals have just as bad of a run defense but I cannot say if Turner is going to be a huge factor because of that. Micheal Turner takes this match almost by default.

    Larry Fitzgerald vs Sidney Rice
    Rice is on by this week. Skelton is finding his way but not very fast. The good thing is that Fitzgerald and Skelton seem to have a click going already. This hopefully will amount to a TD for Fitzgerald as the Falcons like to give up TD's to opposing wide outs. Larry Fitzgerald takes this match by default.

    Roddy White vs Darrius Heyward-Bey
    White looks to finally to have found his feet. 2 100 yard games in a row and now faces the Cardinals who could be tough but also have given up a lot of yards and TD's to wide outs. This game has all things positive for White. DHB is getting the throws and catching the balls. This week he is up against the 31st ranked defense and with Palmer throwing as well as he has been there looks to be no downside for Heyward-Bey. He should be getting passes all day long. Darrius Heyward-Bey takes this match.

    Antonio Gates vs Tony Gonzalez
    The Broncos have had issues covering the TE position and Gates seems to have hit a run with a TD in his last 2 games. This week, even if the Chargers overall do not look good, Antonio Gates still looks like a solid play as he seems to be about the only offense that can catch the ball and be relied on by Phillip Rivers. I know Gonzalez was HUGE last week. Do not get excited for another week like that. But what does it say. That Gonzalez is always a solid play no matter who he faces. Tony Gonzalez takes this match.

    Steve Smith vs Denarius Moore
    The Buccaneers are 32nd against the pass. So if there is a week for Smith to finally break out of his box of low teen scores than this is it. Of course we have to rely heavily here on Cam Newton performing and not self destructing like we have seen a couple of times this season. With Palmer throwing as well as he has this season, there is simply no reason for us to think that Moore will not do well against the Saints, the 31nd rated pass defense in the league. He is a simple play and will get you points as he also seems to find the end zone quite regularly. Denarius Moore takes this match.

    Steelers vs Dolphins
    The Steelers have been steady as a defense for fantasy leagues but this week may run into some issues as they face a tough game against the Ravens. It will be down and dirty and every reason that the Steelers may not have a huge defensive score this week. The Dolphins may be a tough play as the Bills have offensively nailed down 24 TD's this season. They have a bumping runner in C.J. Spiller and the only upside is that Fitzpatrick averages 1 interception a week. The Steelers take this match.

    This will be a close one, Team Braindead takes this match.

    Get To Da Choppa! (Joosbawx) vs Cats HateHitler (Mem)

    Drew Brees vs Carson Palmer
    Brees can take apart the Raiders defense any day of the week with one hand behind his back. There is not much more to add save this...Brees has 25 TD's in 9 games. Palmer makes this a tough pick because he faces the worse pass defense in the league. And he has been getting better and better each week. He is no longer getting comfortable with his wide outs. He is comfortable with his wide outs and this weekend will be a shoot out. Drew Brees takes this match.

    Cam Newton vs Nick Foles
    The Redskins are 4th against the pass and a back up QB like Foles could not ask for better for his 1st starting game of the season. Expect more of what you saw last week when he came in for Vick. He will hold his own but do not expect anything explosive. The Panthers seem to have no faith in the rushing game so expect another week of Newton throwing the ball 63% of the game. The Buccaneers aren't as good against the pass as they are the run. This may just be a week for Newton to rebound a little bit into the higher fantasy score than he has done mostly this season. Cam Newton takes this match.

    Doug Martin vs Ray Rice
    If you expect Rice to have a week like last with only 35 yards then you may have a big surprise ahead of you. Right now we do not know if Big Ben is going to play. So with that expect the Ravens to try to fight to an early lead and then use Rice heavily to burn up the clock. Don't worry about last weeks performance for Martin. This week he will rebound quite nicely as they use him to run down the throat of the Panthers seemingly non-existent run defense. Ray Rice takes this match.

    Issac Redman vs Stevan Ridley
    Dwyer will be back but considering that we do not know about Big Ben as of yet this week expect Redman to still be in play as they will keep this ball on the ground as much as possible. That is the only reason he is relevant and then maybe not so much then. Ridley should have a decent game as the Colts are not the best against the run. They may have improved but the steam roller offense that the Patriots can be will more than likely just roll right over them. Stevan Ridley takes this match.

    Eric Decker vs Calvin Johnson
    Decker may have stumbled last week. But this week facing a Chargers defense that is 18th against the pass and faces Peyton Manning who makes top pass defenses look at there worse it should be a nice bounce back after last week. Megatron has put to rest those people that were worried about his performance after the last 2 great games that he has had. This week he faces a Packers defense that after all of this time have not figured out how to stop him. Expect another good week from Johnson. Calvin Johnson takes this match.

    Reggie Wayne vs Dez Bryant
    Wayne, one of the last of the old guard, has fallen in step with Andrew Luck very nicely. He has been targeted at least 4 times a game and against the Patriots who seem to just give TD's to wide outs, he looks to have a stellar week. Normally I would be telling you that Bryant is a for sure thing against the Browns. But 1st the Browns surprised us a bit last week. 2nd I have read 2 articles this week that talked about the need to phase Bryant out of the line up for the Cowboys. Me personally I think that is crazy talk but hell he has had a bit of a roller coaster season so far. Reggie Wayne takes this match.

    Aaron Hernandez vs Rob Gronkowski
    There is the question if Hernandez will return this week. All arrows point to yes but we will have to see. Keep an eye on his status and if he does a Colts defense may not be a bad place for him to work back into the game against. Gronkowski was surprisingly quiet last week after 2 monster games. This week we should see him pick back up against the Colts where he left off a couple weeks ago. Rob Gronkowski takes this match.

    Trent Richardson vs Scott Chandler
    Richardson needed a break but even injured he was doing very well. This week now that he is fresh and facing Dallas he should be in to some great fantasy points. Dallas may try to slow him down but I have a hunch that he will use the amount of runs he will get just to run right through them eventually. Just because the Dolphins let a TD get by to an opposing Tight End last week does not mean this week it is all in on the TE's that face them. Beyond that he has been pretty mediocre this season. Trent Richardson takes this match.

    Falcons vs Packers
    For the Falcons I do not think we need to talk about how good that they aren't but the fact that we truly do not see any offense from the Cardinals that make us think that the Falcons will have any trouble this weekend containing. Simply put the Lions will give the Packers defense a run for there money and should not be expected to have a high score this weekend. The Falcons take this match.

    Get To Da Choppa! Takes this match


    Mallers Da Winna (COsurvivor) vs Team Devil Dogs (USMCludwig)

    Eli Manning vs Peyton Manning
    Eli Manning is on bye. Peyton is pumping out 300 yard games like they are candy. The Chargers defense gives us no reason to believe that he and any wide out he has under his command will not do well this weekend. Peyton Manning wins this match by default.

    ??? vs Ryan Fitzpatrick
    Fitzpatrick faces a Dolphins defense that is 28th against the pass. He may throw a lot of interceptions but against this defense you should expect him to throw to his own receivers more and make a few TD's in there as well. Ryan Fitzpatrick takes this by default.

    Brandon Jacobs vs LeSean McCoy
    Jacobs not playing...good luck with that. McCoy is going to be the back bone of this offense with a rookie QB under the gun. Since we are not too sure how well this offense will do under a rookie QB's lead. But he held his own and you can expect a heavy dose of McCoy Sunday. LeSean McCoy takes this by default.

    ??? vs Chris Johnson
    Johnson is on bye.

    Micheal Crabtree vs Mike Wallace
    So the last couple weeks Crabtree has done pretty well. This week he will have Alex Smith but maybe no Coach Harbaugh. Add in that he faces the Bears and I am not too sure if he is going to find the end zone for a 3rd week in a row. Wallace will be without Big Ben this week. But he will still be the main wide out with Antonio Brown out still. You can bet that the back up QB will be going for Wallace as often as possible when he takes to the air. Mike Wallace takes this match.

    Mike Williams vs Marques Colston
    Williams and Freeman have come away from week 1 when they last faced the Panthers. Williams has picked up 4 more TD's since then after the 1 he got there. Plus team him up with Vincent Jackson and these 2 can seem unstoppable. Colston may have had a bit of a slowing down the last couple weeks but do not let ya worry. He has still been targeted for a couple TD's and caught the ball 7 times in a couple games. Of course it should be higher against this dismal Raiders defense. Marques Colston takes this match.

    Martelus Bennett vs Jared Cook
    Both Bennett and Cook is on bye.

    Brandon Marshall vs Jamaal Charles
    Normally I would be telling you how bad of a play Marshall would be this week. He still has a downside of Cutler not playing but you know of course but the upside is that the 49ers have lost a step covering wide outs the last couple weeks. If Jason Campbell can get him the ball then he will still have a decent day....and you know Campbell is going to try to get him the ball as often as possible. The Bengals are 25th against the run and Charles just happens to be back on track after a few weeks of nothing. His team may lose but he will score big. Jamaal Charles takes this match.

    Bears vs Texans
    Bears face the 49ers. That could end up being defensive fight all day long. Expect them to do well. The Texans face the Jaguars....expect them to stop the Jags all day long. Expect them to do much better. The Texans win this match.

    Team Devil Dogs takes this by a landslide.
