It’s just about NFL Turkey time but before we look forward to stuffing our face and watching the Cowboys and Lions play its time to recap the breakout Week 11 performances. Many of these performances will push people into the fantasy football playoffs while ending other seasons wishing they hadn’t faced these week 11 studs. Here are your Week 11 Rock Stars.
RG3: 14/15 – 200 yards 4 TD’s – 84 yards rushing – Smooth Criminal by Michael Jackson
It was very close for this week’s winner of top dog amongst the standings between RG3 and Matt Schaub but let’s fact it Schaub played the Jags a game they were suppose to dominate so RG3 for the win. RG3 had yet another remarkable performances essentially making magic every time he had the ball in his hands. RG3 picked apart what was supposed to be a solid Philly D. RG3’s strong performance probably puts him back in the lead for rookie of the year.
Matt Schaub – 43/55 527 Yards – 5 TD’s and Andre Johnson – 14 rec 127 yards 1 TD – Learn to Fly by The Foo Fighters
The Texans known for their ground and play action attacked changed the game plan a bit this week having Schaub throw the ball 55 times this week. Schaub proved he can put the team on his back throwing for 500 + yards and finding pay dirt 5 times. Schaub dialed in on his favorite target Andre the Giant 14 times and the Texans were able to squeak by the Jags. The Texans can be really dangerous if both the run and pass game are on.
Justin Blackmon – 7 rec 236 yards – 1 TD - From Out Of Nowhere by Faith No More
Where did this performance come from? After a very slow start, all the sudden Blackmon leads all rookies in receiving. Blackmon looked like a different player this Sunday and is certainly the player the Jag fans ( if there are any ) are looking forward to seeing from this point on.
Honorable mentions: Andy Dalton, Josh Freeman, Dez Bryant, Gronk, Kaepernick
