Week 11 Review

Here’s a look at 11 games from last week with detailed “what you might have missed” observations:

DEN-ATL

Denver 
 
- It was noticeable that Atlanta wasn’t doing to allow the deep ball. Everything thrown was in front of them.

- Eddie Royal dropped a wide open throw in the red zone with no one any where near him.

- Peyton Hillis is a powerful, decisive runner but he has no lateral quickness. On one of his runs in the first quarter, he could have made a 4-yard gain into a big one had he had any ability to cut back and explode.

- Tatum Bell got a carry late in the first quarter.

- Brandon Marshall had two bad drops in the first half. He’s going to drop at least a few passes each game based on what we’ve seen this season. He’s trying to run first before he catches it.

- Bell opened up in the backfield to start the second half. P.J. Pope came in later in that drive.

- On the next drive, Pope had a very nice cut back run. He’s not fast at all but he’ll get down hill.

- Hillis almost scored for a third time. He had a few goalline carries but was [...]

  • Week 17 storylines December 26, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’m following for Week 17 Cleveland (7-8) at Baltimore (9-6) Brown QB situation. Brian Hoyer (right shoulder/biceps) did not practice Friday. Rookie Connor Shaw is set to start for them at Baltimore. Do they give Terrance West any snaps to evaluate him? He played 0 snaps last week. Does Josh Gordon do anything to leave us something t […]

  • Week 16 storylines December 19, 2014
    Here are the top stories that I will be following in Week 16 for fantasy. Philadelphia (9-5) at Washington (3-11) Robert Griffin III did play better last week, but does it mean anything? It’s hard to trust him even against a beatable secondary and a defense that lost a top pass rusher in Trent Cole. If you’re playing in Week 17, can you trust DeSean Jackson, […]

  • Week 15 storylines December 13, 2014
    Here are the top stories I’ll be following in Week 15 with some insight on some of them. Pittsburgh (8-5) at Atlanta (5-8) Will Julio Jones play? It’s obviously a huge key for Matt Ryan’s ability to hang with the Steelers in a high-scoring game. Without Jones, they have no explosiveness in the passing game and Ryan will have to dink-and-dunk to Roddy White a […]
