One guy to watch
By Bill Williamson
One player from each AFC West team to watch in Week 11:
Denver returner Trindon Holliday: Holliday has been a Bronco for a month, but he has become a must-see attraction. He has scored on a kickoff return in Week 9 and on a punt return in Week 10. Having a dynamic returner causes much angst for opponents.
Kansas City running back Peyton Hillis: Hillis ran hard against Pittsburgh on Monday night. He had just 30 yards on 10 carries, but he did offer a good complement to Jamaal Charles, which was the entire idea of bringing in Hillis. The Chiefs need to pound the rock with Charles and Hillis at Cincinnati.
Oakland running back Marcel Reece: The fullback had 48 yards on 13 carries at Baltimore. With Darren McFadden and Mike Goodson still dealing with ankle injuries, expect to see the fullback carry a big load on Sunday against the Saints.
San Diego receiver Danario Alexander: He is becoming a fantastic story. Picked up off the streets a few weeks ago, Alexander had eight catches for 195 yards in the past two games. He started at Tampa Bay and he made a big impact. He is suddenly a starter. This is a big, young receiver who is worth watching moving forward.
