Week 11: 2009 NFL Team Power Rankings | Fantasy Football Team Rankings
The Patriots had the Colts right where they wanted them but in the end they gave the game away. A poor call by head coach Bill Belichick allowed Peyton Manning to have the ball at the 28 yard line as he cruised his team down for the winning touchdown.
This loss should allow the Colts to have home field advantage for the playoffs. It looks like the road to the Super Bowl will go through Indianapolis once again.
Below we have a short right up on the top ten teams on our power rankings for this season. These teams are important to know as they are playing well and should continue to help fantasy teams.
Furthermore, pay attention to the worst teams on the list as they are the teams you want to have your players going against down the stretch.
1. Colts (9-0)
Until the final minutes of the final quarter between the Colts and Patriots it looked like Indianapolis’s undefeated season was done. Fortunately for the Colts they got the football back one more time and Peyton Manning hit Reggie Wayne for the winning touchdown.
This was a big game for the Colts’ chances for home field through the playoffs. It was also a game that got Manning going again after a few slow fantasy games. At this time, the Colts are the better of the two undefeated NFL teams.
2. Saints (9-0)
The Saints are still undefeated but for the fourth week in a row they didn’t have a strong game. This game was the most concerning close game as they were playing against the St. Louis Rams.
After the game head coach Sean Payton light into his team like they lost the game and in hind site he probably did the right thing.
Hopefully, the Saints will be able to start fast against the Buccaneers next week.
3. Vikings (8-1)
Brett Favre, Adrian Peterson and the Vikings’ defense are firing on all cylinders right now and are a very good team. Look for the Vikings to play another spirited game against the Seahawks next week.
4. Bengals (7-2)
The Bengals are for real as they are now one victory against the Browns away from sweeping their division schedule this season. With a commanding lead in the AFC North, the Bengals are now looking to earn themselves a division championship and a first round bye in the playoffs.
Hopefully, Cedric Benson can return from his hip injury soon as they need their strong running game. If Benson continues to have problems than the team will lean on Bernard Scott and eventuality Larry Johnson.
5. Patriots (6-3)
I was ready to put the Patriots as possibly the top team in the power rankings before they lost at the end to the Colts. Even though the Patriots lost the game it is clear that they will be a factor when the playoffs come.
Look for Brady and the boys to put together a great ending of the fantasy football season for fantasy owners.
6. Steelers (6-3)
The Steelers have lost to the Bengals twice this season and are now two games back for the division lead. Look for the Steelers to bounce back and have a big scoring weekend this coming week against the Chiefs.
All Steeler players make for great fantasy plays this week.
7. Cowboys (6-3)
Last weeks loss to the Packers was a disappointment but I believe the Cowboys will get back on track this weekend. With a home game against the Redskins on deck all players on this team make for good starts on your fantasy team.
One player that fantasy football owners need to keep an eye on is Marion Barber. Barber had a relapse with his fractured thumb and is losing carries because of it.
8. Chargers (6-3)
The Chargers are one more win away from taking the division lead back from the Denver Broncos. So much for the Broncos six wins to start the season as they have now dropped their last three in a row.
I believe the Chargers will get it done in Denver and take the lead back.
9. Cardinals (6-3)
The Cardinals have now put two wins together, and they will face the St. Louis Rams this up coming week. This team’s offense is starting to find another dimension as Chris Beanie Wells is becoming a force on the ground.
Look for Arizona to make easy work of the Rams next week and roll to their seventh victory of the season.
10. Broncos (6-3)
It took awhile before the Broncos fell apart and started to lose games, but it has finally come to pass. This teams Cinderella start is over, and they are now one win away from losing the once commanding lead in their division.
If Kyle Orton can’t play in this up coming game than the Chargers should make easy work of the Broncos.
