America's Team: A division title is within reach

Times are good for America's Team again. The two-game losing streak is a distant memory after you scored a win over Akbar Gbajabiamila and Coup d'etat last week in the NFL Fantasy LIVE Experts' League.

This week, we asked about a number of different personnel moves to make. Should you drop one of your wide receivers? Is there a running back who needs to take a seat on the waiver wire?

And once you make those moves, which new runner and receiver do you want to fill those empty slots? If you want to see some past questions, you can head over to the America's Team page at

In the meantime, we're now looking ahead to Week 11. And it's a big one.

You're taking on Jason Smith's Agony and Ivory with a division title on the line. Win and the division is yours. Lose ... and you'll find yourself in a first-place tie with two weeks to play in the regular season. So choose your lineup wisely.

The biggest question this week -- as it has been all season -- is what to do about your wide receivers?

The Bears struggling defense seems like a soft target for Torrey Smith to see some scoring targets from Joe Flacco. But what about the mercurial Eddie Royal? Can you count on him against the Dolphins secondary? Kendall Wright could be a nice play, but the "Thursday Night Football" curse always looms. Maybe you give Harry Douglas a shot against the Buccaneers. However, Matt Ryan's recent struggles could extend to his pass catchers.

Beyond that, the rest of your lineup seems pretty well set. Rob Gronkowski and Stevan Ridley are back after a bye and Case Keenum has another nice matchup against the Oakland Raiders. DeSean Jackson should fly high against Washington and Marshawn Lynch is a must-start -- especially against the Vikings.

While this one isn't for all the marbles, it's certainly putting those marbles within your grasp.

And as always, if there's a trade you would like us to pursue or a free agent you think we should make a run after, let us know. There's just one more week before the trading deadline. Tweet us @NFLFantasy with #AmericasTeam. In the meantime, be sure to vote and help us set your lineup.

Good luck and happy Week 11. Go America!
