Welcome to Week 11 of the NFL Regular Season

Austin's Expectations:
(players are listed from highest to lowest expectations and projections are for total yards & total touchdowns unless otherwise noted)

QB's:
Aaron Rodgers 300+ yds 2+ TD
Matthew Stafford 300+ yds 2+ TD
Drew Brees 275+ yds 2+ TD
Tom Brady 275+ yds 2+ TD
Tony Romo 275+ yds 2+ TD
Carson Palmer 300+ yds 1+ TD
Andrew Luck 300+ yds 1+ TD

Possible FA's:
Sam Bradford 250+ yds 1+ TD
Nick Foles 235+ yds 1+ TD

Bench:
Robert Griffin III; I expect less than 225 passing yards and 0 passing TD's. Griffin's not as good as you think he is. His rushing is the only thing that makes him a legitimate Fantasy Football option and that may ruin my "bench" him pick here. The Eagles should win this must win game for them. With Michael Vick finally being out, everyone will see why I like the Eagles much better with Foles at the helm than Vick. Foles won't try to do too much & turn the ball over, move himself into sacks, and most importantly the Eagles will be forced to give the ball to their best player, LeSean McCoy. I went on a rant Week 8 if you click "Week 8" & scroll down to my pick of McCoy that week you'll see it. McCoy has 20+ carries in 3 games this season, the Eagles are 3-0. In the other 6 games he hasn't carried the ball 20+ times, the Eagles are 0-6. Like I said Week 8, "It's not Rocket Science Mr. Reid, it's football at it's basic form, run the ball."

RB's:
Arian Foster 110+ yds 2+ TD
LeSean McCoy 100+ yds 2+ TD
Jamaal Charles 110+ yds 1+ TD
Doug Martin (elevate in PPR) 90+ yds 1 TD (3+ receptions)
Ray Rice (elevate in PPR) 80+ yds 1 TD (3+ receptions)
Steven Jackson 75+ yds 1 TD
Mikel Leshoure 70+ yds 1+ TD
Trent Richardson 100+ yds & possibly a TD
Stevan Ridley 80+ yds & possibly a TD
Alfred Morris 90+ yds
BenJarvus Green-Ellis 70+ yds

Possible FA's:
Felix Jones 85+ yds 1+ TD
LaRod Stephens-Howling (elevate in PPR) 100+ yds & possibly a TD (3+ receptions)
Marcel Reece (elevate in PPR) 85+ yds & possibly a TD (7+ receptions)
James Starks 75+ yds
Joique Bell (PPR ONLY) 4+ recepctions 40+ yds

Bench:
Shonn Greene; the St. Louis Rams have 2 good corners & a great pass rush. I expect them to stack the box & dare Mark Sanchez to throw at Finnegan & Jenkins

WR's:
Calvin Johnson 110+ yds 1+ TD
Steve Smith 90+ yds 1+ TD
Roddy White 90+ yds 1+ TD
Jordy Nelson 90+ yds 1+ TD
Miles Austin 80+ yds 1+ TD
Denarius Moore 80+ yds 1+ TD
A.J. Green 75+ yds 1+ TD
Marques Colston 70+ yds 1+ TD
Demaryius Thomas 70+ yds 1+ TD
Andre Johnson 70+ yds 1+ TD
Lance Moore 60+ yds 1+ TD
Danny Amendola 60+ yds 1+ TD
Larry Fitzgerald 80+ yds & possibly a TD
Dwayne Bowe 60+ yds & possibly a TD

Possible FA's:
Donnie Avery 50+ yds & possibly a TD
Rod Streater 50+ yds & possibly a TD
Brandon Stokley 40+ yds & possibly a TD

TE's:
Jimmy Graham 60+ yds 1+ TD
Jermaine Gresham 40+ yds 1+ TD
Brandon Myers 50+ yds & possibly a TD

Possible FA's:
Dwayne Allen 50+ yds & possible a TD (if he scores guess it's from 10+ yds)
Joel Dreessen 30+ yds & possible a TD

PICKS:
Arizona Cardinals at Atlanta Falcons; I like the Cardinals +10
Cleveland Browns at Dallas Cowboys; I like the Cowboys to win straight up
Green Bay Packers at Detroit Lions; I like the Over 52 total points
Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins; I like the Eagles +3.5
Jacksonville Jaguars at Houston Texans; I like the Texans to win straight up
New York Jets at St. Louis Rams; I like the Rams to win straight up
New Orleans Saints at Oakland Raiders; I like the Saints to win straight up
San Diego Chargers at Denver Broncos; I like the Broncos to win straight up
Indianapolis Colts at New England Patriots; I like the Patriots to win straight up

Thursday Night Football:

Ryan Tannehill 242 yards & 2 TD's (mid 30's, 4 mph win, BUF terrible against the pass despite average pass D numbers, look at who their opponents have been)

Ryan Fitzpatrick 224 yards & 2 TD's (mid 30's, 4 mph wind, MIA tough run D but average pass D)

C.J. Spiller 117 yards & 1 TD (expect him to struggle on in between the tackle carries but play a large role in the passing game)

Reggie Bush 68 yards & possibly a TD (this is assuming Joe Philbin gives him his "normal" 11 to 22 touches, that's the range of touches he received 6 consecutive weeks before last week, BUF has the worst run D in the NFL statistically speaking, last in ypg, ypc & TD's given up)

Daniel Thomas 41 yards & 1 TD (there again, assuming Philbin gives Bush his "normal" touches, BUF has the worst run D in the NFL statistically speaking, last in ypg, ypc & TD's given up)

Stevie Johnson 64 yards & 1 TD (mid 30's, 4 mph wind, MIA tough run D but average pass D)

Brian Hartline 89 yards & possibly a TD (mid 30's, 4 mph win, BUF terrible against the pass despite average pass D numbers, look at who their opponents have been)

Davone Bess 48 yards (mid 30's, 4 mph win, BUF terrible against the pass despite average pass D numbers, look at who their opponents have been)

Marlon Moore 41 yards & possibly a TD (mid 30's, 4 mph win, BUF terrible against the pass despite average pass D numbers, look at who their opponents have been)

Donald Jones 38 yards (mid 30's, 4 mph win, MIA tough run D but average pass D)

Scott Chandler 42 yards & possibly a TD (mid 30's, 4 mph wind, MIA tough run D but average pass D)

PICKS:

Miami Dolphins at Buffalo Bills, I like Under 45.5
