Fantasy Football: Studs to start, duds to sit

Atlanta quarterback Matt Ryan, San Diego receiver Vincent Jackson and Tennessee receiver Randy Moss are three guys who should be active on your roster if you have them.
Ryan is golden when he plays at home with an 18-1 record at the Georgia Dome. Jackson makes his 2010 debut and is pumped to get back on the field. Add the fact that San Diego receiver Patrick Crayton is out, receiver Malcom Floyd is battling a hamstring issue and tight end Antonio Gates is also banged up and you have a perfect storm of fantasy football production on the horizon for Jackson.
Most fantasy football experts are singing the praises of Tennessee receiver Nate Washington for this week. I'm telling you Moss is the guy to focus on for the Titans. Moss has been quiet the past two weeks but I believe he will have a great day against Houston.
Minnesota receiver Sidney Rice and Pittsburgh back Rashard Mendenhall should also have great performances this week. The Cleveland Browns defense should also have a field day with Carolina.

Guys to avoid this week include Jacksonville quarterback David Garrard and Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick. Garrard faces a tough Giants defense this week and Fitzpatrick goes against a tough Pittsburgh defense.

Fantasy Football-Week 11 recap

Familiar fantasy football "studs" rose to the top when it came to production last weekend, a good sign that the elite producers are getting in a rhythm.
Peyton Manning led all quarterbacks with 396 yards and four touchdowns and that kind of production should continue. Drew Brees was right there with Manning with 382 yards and four touchdowns.. The surprise was Ryan Fitzpatrick who also had four touchdowns with 316 yards.
Maurice Jones-Drew finally produced stud-like numbers last weekend with 133 yards and a touchdown. Michael Turner was right behind with 131 yards and a touchdown.
Greg Jennings, one ofthe top receivers a year ago, has started waking up and led all wideouts with 7 receptions,152 yards and three touchdowns. Steve Johnson reaped the benefits of Fitzpatrick'ssuccesswith 8 receptions,137 yards and three touchdowns.
Joel Dreessen, filling in for the injured Owen Daniels, was the top tight end with 4 receptions, 106 yards and a touchdown.
All of the players above should have solid weeks in Week 12 except for Dreessen. Daniels is expected to start this week, limiting Dreessen's touches.
