Luck should have a strong night against a tough Titans pass defense

Week 11 kicks off with the Indianapolis Colts taking on the Tennessee Titans on Thursday Night Football. With fantasy leagues’ playoffs not far off, it is more important than ever to start stringing together wins.

Start:

Andrew Luck- While Andrew Luck had more than a tough outing against the St. Louis Rams in Week 10, he is still starter worthy on Thursday Night Football against the Tennessee Titans. Luck is a phenomenal young quarterback who, even after his ugly game last week, has thrown for 2,198 yards, 14 touchdowns and just 6 interceptions this season. Start Luck in Week 11 as he looks to rebound from last week’s performance.

Chris Johnson- The Indianapolis Colts have the league’s seventh worst rush defense. With a changing of the guard at quarterback being forced upon the Titans after Jake Locker’s foot injury, fantasy owners should expect Chris Johnson to get a heavier workload. Johnson has a much higher fantasy value in Points Per Reception (PPR) leagues, but is definitely a must start in all fantasy formats.

Sit:

Coby Fleener- The Andrew Luck and Coby Fleener experiment in Indianapolis has not been what fantasy owners had hoped so far this season. Fleener currently has just 29 receptions for 332 yards and three touchdowns through nine games this season. Unfortunately for Fleener owners, the Titans possess the league’s eighth best pass defense. Sit Coby Fleener against the Titans unless you do not have any other tight end options.

Nate Washington- Tennessee Titans fans must be concerned after hearing that starting quarterback Jack Locker suffered a season ending foot injury, leaving Ryan Fitzpatrick to start the rest of the season. This also spells bad news for Nate Washington owners who have seen his production slide in recent weeks. Expect Fitzpatrick to target wide receiver Kendall Wright much more against the Colts and bench Nate Washington.
