Battle of the Brands Week 11 fantasy football league.

Here's your weekly Battle of the Brands preview as we approach the homestretch of the fantasy football season.

  1. One quarter of this week's starters will be playing in prime-time games, including three on Thursday night. Furthermore, those three players—RBs Reggie Bush and C.J. Spiller and WR Davone Bess—all represent Team adidas. We'll see if this triple threat can get things going early for the Three Stripe brand.
  2. Spot Start Alert! With Maurice Jones Drew still on the mend and Ahmad Bradshaw on bye, Team Reebok is in desperate need of a running back. Enter Danny Woodhead, a long-time Reebok athlete who wore the brand as recently as last season. Woody plays in Boston, where Reebok headquarters is located, and the Pats play at home this week. It's a perfect fit.
  3. Steven Jackson checked in with his best performance of the season, rushing for 101 yards and a touchdown against one of the league's toughest run defenses in Patrick Willis and the San Francisco 49ers. We're rewarding Jackson with his first fantasy start of the season for Team Nike, which is also short on backs, with Adrian Peterson and Marshawn Lynch on bye.
  4. Last but not least, the lineup remains the same this week for Team Under Armour. All seven of its starters are playing at home.

Now, let's meet the starting lineups.
