SCARECROWGRIN FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEKLY: NOV 23rd, 2017
FANTASY FOOTBALL WEEK 12
The last few weeks we have been dealing with bye weeks and a lot of you guys have been streaming players to get through. Bye weeks are over and you can now run your starters out there as we all make these late season playoff pushes.
#1 WIDE OUTS DOING #1 THINGS
The top scorer of week 11 is probably the best Wide out in all of football. Antonio Brown (42.40 fantasy points) torched the Tennessee Titans defense to the tune of 10 rec 144 yards and 3 TDs. After a few average games, these types of explosions are what made him a top 5 fantasy pick. Keenan Allen (42.20 fantasy points) not to be outdone hauled in 12 rec for 159 yards and 2 TDs in the Chargers rout of the Nathan Peterman lead Buffalo Bills. With Melvin Gordon and Austin Eckler getting more attention, Allen is getting back to his WR1 status.
I’M MAN ENOUGH TO ADMIT I WAS WRONG
Just last week I told you all that Ben Roethlisberger wasn’t gonna give you the numbers we have all came accustomed to over years past. I WAS WRONG……… Big Ben ( 36.96 fantasy points) completed 30 passed for 299 yards, 4 TDs but most importantly 0 interceptions. If Ben can continue to play like he did last week, he could lead your team Into the playoffs even with an iffy schedule.
RUSSELL WILSON DOES WHAT HE DOES AND KENNY IS STILL MAKING PLAYS
Russell Wilson ( 38.92 fantasy points) is the highest scoring player in fantasy football after leap frogging Tom Brady and Carson Wentz. Kenny Stills ( 33.00 fantasy points) continued his good play as he tallied 7 rec 180 yards and 1 TD. Stills should atleast be on rosters if not already in your flex position.
BREAKOUT CANDIDATES WEEK 11 (RESULTS)
QB – Eli Manning – 8.70
RB – Duke Johnson Jr. – 16.60
WR – Terrence Williams – 7.50
Plain and simple It was a bad week. Duke Johnson Jr. was the only bright spot. I’m gonna just trash this week and look forward instead of backwards.

QB – Case Keenum – Vikings
RB – J.D. Mckissic – Seahawks
