Brandon's Week 11 Musts & Busts

Boy what a ride this season has been. There's been highs and lows, oh yeah, Coby Fleener blows! Week 9 was a very good week for you if you chose to take my advice and I believe you can only do the same here. Heavy bye weeks are over now and it get's a bit easier for you, hopefully not having key players didn't effect you too much. With all that said let's get down to business and win you Week 11 and get you in position to compete for playoffs!


Tyrod Taylor @ Cincinnati Bengals - Must
Eli Manning vs Chicago Bears - Must
Joe Flacco @ Dallas Cowboys - Risky Must
Derek Carr vs. Houston Texans - Bust
Dak Prescott vs Dallas Cowboys - Bust

Key Must: Joe Flacco
I can feel the eye rolling already. I'll admit, it's difficult to trust a guy like Flacco and I'm not comparing him to Big Ben from last week but he has a good chance of producing this week. Cowboys are hot but still give up points to QB's. If you have better options to trust that's good, but if you need a stream play, Flacco can be your guy!

Key Bust: Derek Carr
Carr has been hot all year long and is going up against another tough defense in the Texans. Feel like this game will be about game control and low scoring. Derek Carr will do enough to win, but isn't going to blow the doors off your matchup.

Running Backs 

Theo Riddick vs. Jacksonville Jaguars - Must
Isaiah Crowell vs. Pittsburgh Steelers - Must
Latavius Murray vs. Houston Texans - Must
Frank Gore vs. Tennessee Titans - Bust
Jay Ajayi @ Los Angeles Rams - Bust
Jeremy Hill vs. Buffalo Bills - Bust

Key Must: Latavius Murray
This call here largely correlates with being down on Derek Carr this week. Going into the by Latavius brought a 3 TD game with him and like I said, this game will have to be a chess match. Oaklands defense isn't good, but neither is Brock Osweiler. Murray is about to get a lot of work in Mexico City!

Key Bust: Jeremy Hill
Hill has scored a touchdown in the last 3 games and Buffalo has given up 4 in the last 3 games, so why am I busting Hill? Because Buffalo is starting to come around and the Bengals are on the spiral down. Against the Giants, the offense looked off and Dalton is in a need to win situation. The Bills and Tyrod will be putting up points against this Bengals D and the game will need to be won through the air, which means more for Giovanni Bernard. Temper Hills expectations.

Wide Receivers

Doug Baldwin vs. Philadelphia Eagles - Must
Sterling Shepard vs. Chicago Bears - Must
Cole Beasley vs. Baltimore Ravens - Must
Jordy Nelson @ Washington Redskins - Bust
Stefon Diggs vs. Arizona Cardinals - Bust
Amari Cooper vs. Houston Texans - Bust

Key Must: Cole Beasley
I know it can be misleading sometimes when I suggest to bench a QB and start one of his targets. Fact is, Beasley gets a lot of the action and is always use to get first downs on 3rd and short situations. Dak won't have a huge day but I like Beasley in the slot this week.

Key Bust: Stefon Diggs
1. Sam Bradford 2. No run game 3. Patrick Peterson
Next question....

Tight Ends

Julius Thomas @ Detroit Lions - Must
Eric Ebron vs. Jacksonville Jaguars - Must
Jack Doyle vs. Tennessee Titans - Must
Kyle Rudolph vs. Arizona Cardinals - Bust
Cameron Brate @ Kansas City Chiefs - Bust
Jason Witten vs. Baltimore Ravens - Bust

Key Must: Eric Ebron
Since coming back from injury Ebron has been a busy man as a big part of the Lions offense. 14 Receptions for 171 Yards the last two games. Jaguars have been respectable against the TE position this season but I'm saying Ebron gets in the redzone this week.

Key Bust: Cameron Brate
Brate has been a good surprise this season with Jameis, but the Kansas City Defense is good in general but especially against the TE position. Only allowing one touchdown and no more than 66 yards all season to the position. Brate has been touchdown dependent, there are better options out there.
