The Hive – Week 11 Edition

Welcome back to The Hive!
The bye weeks are over, but the significant IDP injuries have increased
dramatically in recent weeks. Owners of guys like Troy Polamalu and Terrell
Suggs have to be wondering if their guys will be back in time to help them in
the fantasy playoffs, much less to help them make the fantasy playoffs. Keep in
mind that with the Thursday games upon us, The Hive comes to you before the
Thursday and Friday injury reports are out, so don’t forget to check out my Twitter
feed @ http://twitter.com/thehiveIDP
for the latest up-to-date IDP goodness!

How we rank `em-

Solid

If

Not

Spectacular

Hellno!

– HELL. NO.

 

Thursday Night Football
– Start time: 5:20 p.m. pacific (8:20 p.m. eastern)

Miami

@

Carolina

MIA

Giddyup! – Yeremiah Bell,

Kelsay/Marcus Stroud, Paul Posluszny

SINS! – Jarius Byrd,
Bryan Scott (looked good in his first week at LB)

Hellno! – Donte Whitner/George
Wilson (Whitner sat last week, might start this week and send

Wilson to the bench, but if your league has a
Thursday lineup submission deadline I’d stay away altogether).

SINS! – James Farrior/Lawrence
Timmons/LaMarr Woodley, William Gay

Hellno! – Troy Polamalu
(he’s questionable)

KC

Giddyup! – Tamba Hali
(just a hunch)

solo tackles and two assists last week, not a bad injury replacement against a
studly Steelers offense that will likely be running the ball all day long),

Orleans

@

Tampa

Bay

NO
