2011 Fantasy Football: Week 14 Review
Jumping right into things, Matt Ryan (22/320/4) and Tony Romo (21/321/4) led the day in fantasy points for quarterbacks. Late in the second half against Tennessee, Drew Brees salvaged his fantasy day finishing right behind Tony Romo and Matt Ryan with 36 completions, 337 yards and 2 touchdowns. Tom Brady was the 4th best fantasy QB in week 14, finishing with 22/357/3.
Mojo, Maurice Jones-Drew, was the big story among non-quarterbacks in fantasy this week. He finished with 85 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns on the ground to go along with another 6 catches for 51 yards and 2 more touchdowns–a total of 4 touchdowns on the day! Mojo is our MVP for week 14. Tight end, Rob Gronkowski was our second MVP of the day, finishing behind Maurice Jones-Drew for most fantasy points scored among non-quarterbacks. Gronkowski had 6 catches, 160 yards and 2 touchdowns. He now has 15 receiving touchdowns on the season, which is a new, NFL single-season record.
Shonn Greene had 129 yards on the ground with a touchdown and 3 catches for 58 yards, while Marques Colston continued to stay hot with 7/105/2. Larry Fitzgerald went 7/149/1 and on Thursday night, Antonio Brown was the man, finishing with 5/151/1. If your still playing weekly fantasy football, roll all of these guys with confidence.
On to major injuries, Greg Jennings is the headline for week 14. Against Oakland, Jennings may have torn his MCL, which would take about 2-6 for recovery. That means that he’ll probably be done for all 2011 weekly fantasy football games. Look for Donald Driver to try and step in and fill the void. Ben Roethlisberger suffered a high left ankle sprain on Thursday night football, but was able to return to the game in the second half. If he was able to come back in the game on Thursday, then the long week of rest will get him ready for his next game against San Francisco on Monday night.
Adrian Peterson missed his third straight game with that bum ankle, but plans to play in week 15 against New Orleans. Nate Washington was able to tough out his ankle injury and was able to put up a 6/130/1 line against the Saints. Mario Manningham returned from a knee injury suffered in practice a couple weeks ago and was back to his old ways of dropping Eli’s perfect looking touchdown passes.
