Week Eleven: Position Picks Breakdown

Week 11 of the 2015 NFL season is here, now it’s time to share with you some of the guys I like at each position as possible plays in your lineup.

QB

Carson Palmer vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Palmer gets to face his former team in a battle of two of the best teams in the NFL. Palmer enters this game fresh off a spectacular performance against the Seattle Seahawks, throwing for 363 yards and 3 TDs in a win. On paper this doesn’t look like a favorable matchup, as Cincinnati ranks 13th in pass defense and has only surrendered 11 passing TDs on the season. However, after watching Palmer dice up “The Legion of Boom”, I’m picking him against anybody.

RB

Latavius Murray vs. Detroit Lions

The Lions have given up 14 rushing TDs and rank 28th stopping the run. Murray averages 14.45 FPPG but figures to top that versus the Lions. Look for Murray to find the end zone early.

WR

Michael Crabtree vs. Detroit Lions

Amari Cooper will get plenty of attention from the Lions, leaving Crabtree who’s been just a productive as Cooper from as FPPG standpoint ample opportunities to make plays versus a mediocre Lions secondary.

TE

Travis Kelce vs. S.D. Chargers

TEs have feasted on the Chargers this season, therefore Kelce seems like a no-brainer play against them.  The Chargers have fared well against WRs, so expect Alex Smith to look to Kelce more than Jeremy Maclin.

DST

Seattle vs. San Francisco

Blaine Gabbert is not Palmer, therefore I don’t see him putting on an aerial attack in this game.  San Francisco comes to Seattle without RB Carlos Hyde, making this matchup even more favorable for the Seahawks.

London Fletcher

London Fletcher

London Fletcher is a former American football linebacker who played in the National Football League (NFL). Undrafted in 1998, he was signed by the St. Louis Rams as a rookie free agent and became a Super Bowl champion with the team. He was also a member of the Buffalo Bills, where he played for five seasons, and the Washington Redskins, where he played for seven seasons. Fletcher was well known for never missing a game in his career, being one of only four players in NFL history to play in over 250 consecutive games. Fletcher also holds the record for consecutive starts at the linebacker position. He eventually finished his career with 215 consecutive games started, which ties him for 6th all time along with Alan Page and Ronde Barber. London has agreed to be a writer and representative for the FantasyDraft brand and serves as an ambassador to the site. He has no more access to the site than the typical user.
