After tonight’s Patriot/Chiefs game, another week of 2011 fantasy football action will be in the books, but not without it’s set of injuries and high scorer updates. Let’s take a look.
Matthew Stafford had the biggest day among all quarterbacks on Sunday, tossing 28 completions for 335 yards, 5 TD’s and 2 INT’s. If it weren’t for his iffy finger and that glove on his throwing hand, I would have started him over Eli Manning who went 18/264/1/1–darn it!
Running back Kevin Smith totaled 201 yards from scrimmage with 3 touchdowns and 6 receptions. Can you say, welcome back Kevin? Definitely look to try and add him to your roster this week in all weekly fantasy football game formats.
Aaron Rodgers threw for 299, 3 TD’s and a pick, Roddy White had a 7 catch, 147 yard game, Jordy Nelson kept his hot streak alive with a 6/123/2 performance and Torrey Smith got behind secondaries again this week finishing with 6/65/1. Let’s not forget about our boy nasty Nate Washington who finished his day off with 9/115/2.
Nate Washington is having a career year right now, so roll him while he’s hot! Johnny Knox had easily his best game of the season this week with 3/97/1 and 74 return yards for those of you in return yardage leagues. Let’s see if he does that again in week 12.

As always, the week just wouldn’t be the same without it’s new set of injuries, so let’s get started. Adrian Peterson limped off the field in the first quarter with a left ankle injury after rushing for 26 yards and a touchdown. It looked as though he was getting ready to have a big game and then he got hurt. For now, he’s considered day-to-day with a high ankle sprain, but he might have to miss a game or two. Should that be the case, Toby Gerhart would be in line for extra work.

LaDainian Tomlinson missed the Thursday night game against the Broncos with a sprained MCL, but plans on playing this Sunday against Buffalo. Shonn Greene started on Thursday night and was supposed to have a big game with LT out, but was forced to leave early with a rib cage injury. He expects to pay this Sunday as well.
As a result, Joe Mcknight saw an increase in work and filled in admirably. He ran for 59 yards, caught 6 passes for 62 yards and had 39 return yards as well. Julio Jones did not play against the Titans with a bum hamstring, so again, Harry Douglass saw extra targets. Douglass finished with a modest 4 catch 51 yard day.
