Week 11 fantasy picks

Andre Johnson is a smart fantasy pick in Week 11 of the Home Team Challenge.

In Week 11 of the Home Team Challenge, the free fantasy football game with great prizes on HoustonTexans.com, the winning player gets to throw out t‐shirts with TORO at a Texans game.

Remember to pick your new team each week, and don't forget there's an earlier deadline this time around because the Dolphins play at Carolina on Thursday night.

Use 300 points to construct a squad. For example: In Week 11, Green Bay's Aaron Rodgers is the most expensive player points-wise, and he'll set you back 84 points. But if you're strapped for points elsewhere, you could always snap up Denver's Chris Simms for just a single point.

Here's my absolute…airtight…110%...guaranteedyouwillwinoryoucankeymyMercedesBenzlimo weekly fantasy advice, with a few players I like and a few players I don't.

PRICE IS RIGHT QB Drew Brees, NO, 79 (@ TB) Brees and the undefeated Saints hit the road for South Florida and the Buccaneers, who have given up at least 25 points in every contest since the start of Week 5. Brees, meanwhile, has thrown multiple touchdowns in a game on five different occasions this season and figures to add to that number against a ballclub that's won just a single game. He comes at a steep asking price, but Brees is a quality pickup.

VALUE PICK QB Matthew Stafford, DET, 35 (vs. CLE) Stop laughing. C'mon, I said stop laughing. There. You finished?

Stafford's a nice pick here because he'll only cost you 35 points. Although the Browns haven't been torched by too many quarterbacks, look for the maturing Stafford to continue his improvement at home at the expense of Cleveland. Last week, he threw for 224 yards and a score without an interception, bouncing back from a five-pick performance the week before. Save some points with Stafford.

NOT WORTH IT QB Aaron Rodgers, GB, 84 (vs. SF) Rodgers was the costliest player in all of the Home Team Challenge for Week 10, and he rewarded those of you who were suckered in by him with just 189 passing yards and a touchdown. He's a point less this week, and he's going against a solid 49ers defense. Avoid Rodgers, and certainly avoid him when he's—again—the costliest player of the week.

SLEEPER SPECIAL Jason Witten, TE, DAL, 22 (WAS) Witten's disappointing fantasy season will get a lift this weekend back at home in Arlington. The Cowboys host the Redskins, and Witten should find the end zone for the first time since Week 2. He's caught at least four passes in every game this season, but expect that total to double and the yardage to hover around the century mark as well. The Cowboys are coming off a loss and opposing defenses are now more aware of what receiver Miles Austin can do. Look for Witten to get some more red zone chances this weekend, which makes for a nice deal for just 22 points.

TEXANS FANTASY STARTER OF THE WEEK WR Andre Johnson, WR, 42 HOU (vs. TEN)
This one's a no-brainer: Johnson has shredded the Titans as of late, and in Week 2 he caught a pair of scores and finished with 10 receptions for 149 yards. He and Titans cornerback Cortland Finnegan will square off, and Finnegan brings out the beast in the Texans' stalwart receiver.
