Some Week Eleven Surprises

New, comments

So much for any doubts about the health of Houston Texans' WR Andre Johnson.  He caught a 73 yard TD pass and finished with six receptions and 120 yards.  With QB Matt Schaub also demonstrating no ill effects from a concussion suffered three weeks ago, the Texans passing game look like it could make RB Ron Dayne a legitimate RB2 as we move towards the fantasy play-offs.  Dayne rushed for 89 yards and caught three passes.

Chester Taylor scored three TDs and rushed for 164 yards in rookie Adrian Peterson's rookie season.  This would have justified the 2nd round fantasy draft status Taylor held until the Vikings were fortunate to have Peterson drop to them at #7 in last April's NFL Draft.

Cowboys' WR Terrell Owens caught 4 TD passes for 173 yards against the Redskins.  He has now caught 12 TDs and has surpassed 1,000 yards through the first ten games.  If Randy Moss is somehow held without a TD pass against Buffalo, Terrell will have a case for the best WR this year.
