Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 11: Shonn Greene

Michael Thomas

Shonn Greene and the Titans haven't been very good at moving the ball on the ground, but they have an attractive matchup. We break down the fantasy implications.

The Tennessee Titans haven't really been hitting on all cylinders on offense and are coming off an ugly loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars. They'll get a chance to redeem themselves on Thursday against the Indianapolis Colts.

Shonn Greene didn't do much in that loss, but he's carried the ball nine times in back-to-back weeks.

He's having a horrible season with his new team. Many thought he had nowhere to go but up with the Jets, but he's been even worse. Last year with the Jets, he had just one of his 276 carries go for 20-plus yards, but he was still able to have a somewhat respectable 3.9 yards per carry. This year, that number has dropped to just 3.5 and he also is useless in the passing game, despite his three catches last week.

Chris Johnson ran the ball 12 times for just 30 yards and the prevailing thought is that he's losing his burst in the hole. That may explain why Greene is getting more carries.

Fantasy impact: The matchup isn't too bad, but the lack of big-play ability and not seeing double-digit carries all season make it tough to start him in almost any league.
