From the Owner’s Box: Trending (Week 11)

What’s trending heading into Week 11:
Hurd’s move from a brick house to the big house, Bowe’s munchies, Gronk’s Entourage, Pierre’s winning smile, Flynn’s Full Circle and 10K for the shirt off a punter’s back.

Sam Hurd the Jail Bird.
*In December of 2011, we mentioned Hurd’s decision to move more than just the chains. Nearly two years later, the former NFL receiver is facing life in prison.

Dwayne Bowe has a need for speed weed… and tots.
*Despite being arrested for smoking pot and speeding to the nearest Sonic, the Chiefs WR1 is expected to play in Week 11 against the Broncos. Given the matchup, his fantasy value gets a bump, but Alex Smith’s arm always keeps things mellow.

Gronk trades a screen pass for a screen test.
*This week he’ll be playing the part of spoiler when the Patriots travel to Carolina to halt the Panther’s five game winning streak. Coming off a bye you can bet New England’s stud tight end will be refreshed and ready for GAMETIME.

Pierre Garcon wants to suck the life out of the competition.
*No. 88 is coming off a monster performance against the Vikings 29th ranked pass defense. This week he’s bound to keep fantasy owners (and his mom) happy when he takes on the Eagles, who are giving up the most fantasy points to opposing wide receivers.

Matt Flynn goes around and then comes back around to Green Bay.
*Aaron Rodgers former back up becomes his backup‘s backup.

Josh Freeman’s best trade deal.
*In order to retain his old jersey number the former Buccaneer writes a nice sized check to charity and attempts to erase the past three years.
