Jeff Ratcliffe breaks down the matchups for all 30 fantasy defenses in action for Week 11 and gives his top kicker plays
Now this is more like it. This week is a monster: Six of the top eight teams in Frank Schwab’s power rankings face off head-to-head this week. It’s not as if the action hasn’t been good in the NFL, it’s just that prior to last week the matchups had been a bit … underwhelming. Not with three sledgehammer games on this week’s slate, including a classic divisional matchup, a great conference battle and an intriguing inter-conference tilt that will tell us a lot about both teams. Here are the biggest storylines as we look forward to the Week 11 games:
1. OK, this is the big one. Sunday night features the unbeaten Kansas City Chiefs traveling to face the one-loss Denver Broncos in a game that not only has major ramifications on the division race, but also on the AFC’s totem pole (with the loser of the West likely getting a 5-seed and a road playoff game, thanks very much). This is the highest combined winning percentage (.944) of two teams meeting this late in a season since 1969. You have to start with the quarterbacks — check out what Archie Manning said about both guys — and their defensive matchups. Peyton Manning , his tender ankle and the Broncos’ offense (first in points scored) going up against a Chiefs defense (first in points allowed) that ranks among the best, and workmanlike Alex Smith and the Chiefs (fewer points scored than the Minnesota Vikings) attacking a semi-suspect Broncos unit (more points allowed than the Tampa Bay Buccaneers). Yes, these teams meet again two weeks from Sunday, and everything could change again, but imagine the statement the Chiefs could make with a victory. We just won’t even get into what Dwayne Bowe did leading up to the game. Sheesh
Columnist Jeff Duncan previews upcoming showdowns on the NFL calendar
The last time the San Francisco 49ers took the field at the Superdome, they made a gutsy second-half comeback before falling short in the Super Bowl. Based on New Orleans’ home dominance, the challenge for the 49ers to come out ahead could be even tou..
By week 11 heading into the Dallas Cowboys’ bye week, we all thought this team would finally be putting it all together and setting the stage for a final run at an NFC East crown and an all elusive spot in the post season
LaMichael James had never returned a punt in an NFL regular-season game prior to Sunday. Now, he’s the most-experienced return man on the 49ers’ roster after the team waived Kyle Williams and Perrish Cox on Tuesday. James’ debut in that role came Sunday in the 49ers’ 10-9 loss to the Carolina Panthers. “It’s something I’m going to have to grow at,” James told CSN Bay Area on Tuesday
