THE LOWDOWN: Week 11

Welcome to The Lowdown for Week 11. This is my little corner of the fantasy football universe — feel free to pull up a chair and stay a while!

Is it Sunday?

I’m not going to lie. It’s been a crazy week for me… too much work and not enough sleep. I mean, I’m writing this article after coming home from a week-long business trip which was followed by a sleepless night of trying to get some family stuff in order, followed by an entire day of clients bitching about everything from their work deliverables to Donald Trump.

After all that, I’m rewarded– not by women with bad taste in men, not by a nice brandy and cigar, not even by the chance to get some sleep. No, I’m rewarded with fantasy football rankings! Lucky me.

The least you can do is use these lists to win this week… it’s not too much to ask, is it?

Teams on Bye this week: 49ers, Colts, Jets, Panthers.
