Week 11 bye teams – Tenn, Minn, NYG and SEAQBCarson Palmer– Still only owned in 58% of Yahoo leagues, Palmer is the guy to pick up and start this week.  In his last two games he has thrown for 782 yards and 6 TD’s. This week he returns home to welcome the Saints who allow the MOST points to Fantasy QB’s. With the possibility that McFadden and Goodson miss another game, the game plan will fall squarely on Palmer’s shoulders. He’s a QB1 this week in this matchup.QB Flier  Ryan Tannehill – If anyone is due for a bounce back performance, it is Tannehill. Last week he threw for 217 yards and 3 INT’s. His remedy for a bounce back is the Buffalo Bills.  The Bills allow the 2nd most fantasy points QB’s. He’s a serviceable bye week fill in for deeper leagues or injury replacement.RBChris Ivory – Ivory’s only going to get around a dozen touches a game, but in this matchup with the Raiders who allow the 5th most fantasy points to RB’s he is definitely serviceable this week. Joique Bell – With the Packers coming off a bye and getting Jordy Nelson back, their offense figures to be clicking. That means the Lions will have to throw to keep up, so Bell is serviceable flex this week in PPR.RB Flier’sBen Tate – Owned in only 39% of Yahoo leagues, if he returns this week he could see a lot of garbage time against the Jaguars.Beanie Wells – Eligible to return in week 12.  Arizona has a tough schedule ahead and bad offensive line, but touches and carries will be there.WRDarrius Heyward-Bey – Only owned in 55% of Yahoo leagues Heyward-Bey has had 10 catches 156 yards and 1 TD in his last two games. This week he has a juicy matchup against the Saints who allow the most fantasy points to WR’s. The Raiders figure to have to keep pace with the Saints and with a limited running game, Heyward-Bey has WR2 upside in this matchup.Danario Alexander – He was on this list last week and then went off for 5 catches 134 yards and a TD against the Bucs. This week they face the Broncos and with Champ Bailey likely on Floyd, Alexander makes a sneaky play here. He is a very serviceable WR3 or flex.WR FlierBrandon LaFell – He scored in their first matchup and since then, Tampa Bay has gone on to allow the second most fantasy points to WR’s including most receptions and most yards to WR’s.TEGreg Olsen – Only owned in 59% of Yahoo leagues, he caught 9 balls for 102 yards and 2 TD’s in week 10.TE Flier’sTony Moeaki - He caught 3 balls for 68 yards in week 10. This week he faces the Bengals and they allow the 6th most fantasy points and tied for 2nd most red zone touches to TE’s.Lance Kendricks – Lance saw 6 targets and caught 3 for 48 yards against the stingy 49ers. This week at home he faces the Jets and they allow the 5th most fantasy points and 3rd most TD’s to TE’s. With Amendola back, defenses figure to keep and eye on him freeing up space Kendricks.
