Sunday morning updates -- Week 11

Greetings Fools, from overcast South Florida. I'm on a guys trip (they're Cowboys fans, I'm a Dolfan) and we're heading off to the game shortly, so I won't be tweeting as usual today.

Here's what we need to know from around the league...

Mark Sanchez gets the start for the Eagles, and strangely, I like his chances. I'm even starting him in one league since Drew Brees is on bye and I don't trust Ryan Tannehill in the rain against the Cowboys D.

We'll also see Brock Osweiler, T.J. Yates and Case Keenum in their first start of the 2015 season today. I wouldn't be shocked to see Osweiler have a nice outing against the Bears. And, of course, Tony Romo returns today, which is great news for Dez Bryant's owners.

It's another day off for Matt Forte, so Jeremy Langford will get another start and a full complement of carries and targets against the Broncos. Tough matchup, but he's tough to sit after his last two outings.

Darren McFadden is a go today, despite the midweek groin problem. Start him with confidence against my Dolphins.

Carlos Hyde is out, so Shaun Draughn will get the start for the Niners.

Eddie Lacy will play today, but James Starks will get the start. The hot hand will get the bulk of the carries, which makes them both risky.

John Brown is expected to play, but I sure wouldn't risk another goose egg. That said, if Michael Floyd doesn't go (and he's not expected to), there's a little more reason for optimism. Jarod Brown may be the real play.

Vincent Jackson is expected to return from his knee injury to play for the Bucs, but again, he comes with plenty of risk.

Emmanuel Sanders is OUT, which is opposite what the news was earlier.

I was already worried about Alshon Jeffery against the Broncos, especially with his injuries. Now it appears that he will be sitting out. Looks like the Jeremy Langford show today.

That's it for now. Have a great day.
