A rash of injuries at the QB position may have potential playoff fantasy teams scrambling to fill the highest-scoring position in fantasy football. Also, an injury to his teammate catapults C.J. Spiller into the top five, and more, in this week’s Start/Sit rankings.

Carson Palmer. Matchups don’t get much better for QBs than the Saints, and Palmer’s been racking up points in recent weeks.
Marcel Reece. He’s the bell-cow back again in Week 11 with a great matchup against the Saints. PPR leagues shouldn’t pass, either.
Danny Amendola. He’s back from injury and racking up catches, making him a must-start in all formats moving forward.
Dustin Keller. He was held to just three catches in a tough matchup last week, but he had back-to-back seven-catch games before that.
Connor Barth. A rising star on an explosive offense, Barth gets a Panthers team surrendering the most FGs per week in fantasy.
Washington Redskins. The Eagles line is atrocious, and the ‘Skins get a rookie QB on the road in this excellent matchup.
Matt Schaub. A Week 2 matchup against the Jaguars produced just 195 yards and no TDs. Expect Houston to lean on the run.
Chris Ivory. Darren Sproles is expected to return, making all NO backs risky in Week 11. Play it safe with a less competitive situation.
Chris Givens. De-activated last week for violating team rules, Givens should be kept on bench to see how he’s used with Amendola.
Jacob Tamme. If anyone is still clinging to Tamme in hopes his history with Peyton will make for a good year, you’re deluding yourself.
David Akers. Akers is in the middle of a very non-Akers system, and the 49ers could struggle against a great Bears D.
New England Patriots. Luck showed in Week 10 he can excel on the road, and I don’t trust the Pats D, even against a rookie QB.
