Week 11 Matchups and Sit/Start Analysis


Indianapolis Colts @ Tennessee Titans, Thursday 11/14, 8:30PM

Match-up We Love: Coby Fleener, TE
Coby Fleener has been one of the higher scoring tight ends in fantasy over the past four weeks. He even had a solid day while the Colts put up a stinker against the Rams last week. With no Reggie Wayne, TY Hilton has shown that he needs to be the focal point of opposing defenses. That could mean that Fleener's 10 targets from a week ago could become a regular occurrence. The Titans have shown that they can be vulnerable to tight ends, and they are coming off a loss to the Jaguars that saw them give up 29 points to the worst team in the league.

Analysis: Start Coby Fleener with confidence.

Match-up We Hate: Titans DEF
If you listened to my advice last week and used the Titans defense against the Jaguars, I apologize. I grabbed them everywhere I could and got burned as well, as the worst team in football put up 29 points against them. Selecting the Titans as a match-up I hate this week is not sour grapes however, it speaks more of what I think of the Colts offense. Andrew Luck had his worst professional game last week, and I fully believe he will come out this week with a chip on his shoulder. He's too good to have another stinker this week, and I'd rather not have the defense that will have to deal with that if I can avoid it.

Analysis; It wouldn't shock me if the Titans defense plays well, especially since they're at home, but I think they're too risky to play against the Colts this week. If you can find a better match-up, use it.

Key Injuries: Josh Gordy DB, IND (out), Damian Williams WR, TEN (out)

Start 'Em: Ryan Fitzpatrick, Chris Johnson, Nate Washington, Shonn Greene, Delanie Walker, Titans DEF, Andrew Luck, Trent Richardson, TY HIlton, Coby Fleener, Donald Brown, Colts DEF


Good luck Thursday night! We will see you here all weekend as we analyze the rest of this week's games.
