Rivers/MillerUSA TODAY SportsShould Philip Rivers and Lamar Miller start in fantasy lineups for Week 11?

Thursday night's matchup was all about the running backs: Chris Johnson -- universally owned in ESPN.com leagues -- busted out for 20 points, and Donald Brown -- owned in just 7.8 percent of leagues -- bested him by one point. That's two straight double-digit games for Brown. Expect that 7.8 number to increase sharply once the free-agent market opens up next week.

Through the air, both quarterbacks preferred working their tight ends into the mix, as Delanie Walker and Coby Fleener were the fantasy point leaders among pass-catchers.

With Thursday behind us, let's have a look at the greatest hits from the week of fantasy football content at ESPN Insider.


Top tips

Scott Tolzien, QB, Green Bay Packers

Week 10 saw the Packers move on to their third-string QB, a Wisconsin product who originally broke into the NFL with the San Francisco 49ers. He didn't look outstanding on Sunday, but he wasn't terrible, either, and Eric Karabell writes that we shouldn't be afraid of starting the other Packers skill players just because Tolzien is under center.
