Week 11 pro football survivor picks
Survive and advance is a popular sports mantra normally saved for the month of March and the madness that comes with it.
But thanks to the rapid growth of the NFL and fantasy football, games like FOX Fantasy Survivor can feed your craving for “win or go home” competition seven months early.
Thousands of football fans signed up and participated in the FOX Fantasy Survivor game last season. The hope is, with cash prizes on the line, we can eclipse that mark in 2012.
The premise is simple: pick one (1) team who you believe is going to win that week. The survivor catch remains that once you pick a team to win, you can’t pick that team again for the rest of the season. The good news is, even if you lose, you are still eligible to win cash prizes.
To assist you with your survivor selections, the FOXSports.com’s fantasy football staff will provide you their picks for the week.
Just remember the mantra: survive and advance. In two months, you could be $2,000 richer.
Week 10 Recap
Fowler - Steelers (After losing to the Raiders and Titans earlier in the season I should have known better as to expect this as a stone-cold lock. Granted, losing Ben Roethlisberger to a shoulder injury and having Byron Leftwich lead the offense didn't do pro football survivors any favors, but for the Steelers to allow Jamaal Charles to have his best game in a month knowing Matt Cassel could not beat them with his arm was definitely a head scratcher. Survive and advance in its purest form here.)
Beall - Dolphins (The Tennessee Titans flipped the script on Mr. Beall in Week 10. A week after being embarassed by the Chciago Bears on their home turf, the Titans traveled South and owned Ryan Tannehill. The other surprise in this contest was the well-managed game by Jake Locker in his first game back from injury. Chris Johnson continued to rewrite his 2012 season fantasy biography with another game where he rushed for over 100 yards.)
Harmon - Patriots (You have to give it up to Ryan Fitzpatrick when he faces the Patriots - homeboy never says die. Three turnovers cost the Bills in the end as the Pats did not turn the ball over once. Plus, they lost Fred Jackson on the short week to a concussion.)
Week 11 Picks
Fowler, Beall, Halpin and Harmon - Cowboys over Browns
The Cleveland Browns are also known as "The Factory of Sadness" for a reason. Their kicker, Phil Dawson, is often their best offensive threat. Running back Trent Richardson has put together a solid rookie campaign, but Dallas is solid against the rush and even better when they know the opposing offense doesn't have a passing game. The matchup to watch is actually Dez Bryant versus Joe Haden, the superstar of an underrated Browns' pass defense. Both teams are in the bottom 10 in scoring offense, so don't be surprised if this is a low-scoring game.
