Fantasy football 2011 | Chinstrap Ninjas fantasy football contest: Week 11 results, Week 12 lineups

Is Rob Gronkowski the new Jimmy Graham? Could be. This week we scored points for six teams in our weekly fantasy football contest and I wouldn’t be surprised if more teams start him next week.

Meanwhile, the running backs and wide receivers might have been as unpredictable as they’ve been all year.

As usual, read on for contest news or skip to the comments and post your lineup for Week 12.

Gronkowski’s 2-TD performance earned points for all three of our overall leaders this week. MoHawks, 69ers and Super Friends continued to maintain their lead over the rest of the field thanks to the Patriots’ tight end.

Team Name Here maintained its one-point lead over Dante Bruno. Sorry for the mixup last week, Team Name. Both teams started Gronkowski, an obvious Dante Bruno favorite. Gridiron Assassins moved into seventh overall thanks to Gronkowski. Gridiron is six points behind Cartisimo, who earned the first point of November thanks to TE runner-up Jason Witten.

Speaking of Witten, the Cowboys tight end helped LOL Cats continue an amazing streak of six weeks in a row. However, unlike Frank “The Tank,” he is not streaking alone to the quad. Dante Bruno is keeping pace with a 6-week streak.

Chickenheads & Pigeons made it onto the November board for the first time thanks to Matthew Stafford’s terrific performance.

Schizophrenic Smurfs started Cam Newton and earned a tough-luck point. Newton topped a deep field of quarterbacks thanks in large part to a 2-point conversion.

You have to look nine players deep to find a running back started by one of our competitors. You have to dig 13-players deep to find a wide receiver. This week is as good an example as any about how unpredictable picking the top player at any position can be week-to-week.

Let’s take a look at some of the interesting plays from this week. Denarious Moore, fresh off his second huge week of the season, was started by five different teams, including MoHawks, Team Name, Dante Bruno, Purple Coconuts and Brandon.

Smurfs started interesting picks at both running back and receiver, Kendall Hunter and Brandon Lloyd, respectively. Purple Coconuts started Roy Helu. Tom Hagen posted Marshawn Lynch in our running back slot. Lynch outscored every other running back started by team owners this week.

Chickenheads & Pigeons started Ed Dickson at tight end and Dante Bruno started Carson Palmer at quarterback.

Top performers this week:


No quarterback came close to matching Matthew Stafford‘s 335-yard, 5-TD game this week. He scored 29.6 fantasy points. Cam Newton led a quartet of quarterbacks with 24 points and change this week. Newton, threw four picks but rushed for a pair of TDs and scored a two-point conversion, finishing with 24.9 fantasy points. Aaron Rodgers had a much less turnover-prone performance and finished just .13 points from usurping Newton, denying eight tough-luck awards that would have changed our overall leaderboards this week.

Running backs

Kevin Smith. Yep, we all saw that one coming. Smith rushed for 140 and two TDs and caught four passes for 61 yards and a TD. Based on what I’ve read the Panthers put on a how-not-to-tackle clinic. So, start Donald Brown and Delone Carter this week? Not sure I can get behind that offense considering there are no byes, but some of us play in deep leagues. Alright, back on topic: Smith scored a whopping 38.1 points. He topped Ray Rice, who scored twice, rushed for 104 yards and added 43 yards receiving.

Wide receivers

Wide receives posted some big performances this week. Jordy Nelson led the way with 123 yards and two TDs. He scored 24.3 points. Nate Washington made a few more catches than Nelson, 9-to-6, but Washington fell just short in the yardage category. He scored twice and accumulated 115 yards to finish with 23.5 fantasy points. Both Vincent Jackson and Torrey Smith each accumulated 165 yards and a touchdown to finish this week with 22.5 fantasy points.

Tight ends

This TE triumvirate of Rob Gronkowski, Jason Witten and Jimmy Graham is going to be competing for starts for the rest of the year. Gronkowski posted 96 yards and two TDs this week, scoring 21.6 points. Witten caught three passes for 85 yards and a TD to finish second with 14.5 points. Graham, of course, was on bye.

In the comments, post who you think will be the best quarterback, running back, wide receiver and tight end in Week 12. Remember, only the best player at each position is worth five points. But there are massive bonus points for getting more than one pick correct. Good luck.

    The mystery surrounding “Team Name Here” can be traced back to EP’s original post for this years game. And I quote:
