  • Panthers Defense Steps Up In Week 11

    The Carolina Panthers defense/special teams had a strong showing in Week 11, holding the Baltimore Ravens to just 13 points and adding an interception and three sacks. This marks two consecutive weeks in which the Panthers' defense has kept the team in the game by holding its opponent to fewer than 20 points. The Carolina DST can be considered a mediocre option next week against a struggling Denver Broncos offense.

  • James Robinson Picks Up Just 10 Yards In Week 11

    New York Jets running back James Robinson couldn't get much going in a Week 11 loss to the New England Patriots. He ran the ball seven times, gaining just 10 yards. He was not targeted in the passing game. The Jets offense struggled mightily in this game, with Michael Carter leading the backfield with just 19 yards. Still, it was encouraging to see Robinson end up with only one fewer carry than the backfield leader.

  • Rhamondre Stevenson Catches Six Passes In Win Over Jets

    New England Patriots running back Rhamondre Stevenson rushed for 26 yards on 15 attempts while catching all six targets for 56 yards in Sunday's 10-3 win over the New York Jets. He averaged an abysmal 1.7 yards per carry and was out-gained by backfield teammate Damien Harris 65-26 on the ground. The 24-year-old racked up at least 70 total yards in eight straight games. Despite the inefficiency in Sunday's win, Stevenson remains a must-start against the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving night.

  • Graham Gano Scores Zero Points In Week 11 Loss

    New York Giants kicker Graham Gano didn't attempt a single field goal while he missed both of his extra-point attempts in Sunday's 31-18 loss to the Detroit Lions. It was a forgettable game for the Giants as an entire team, but it was surprising to see the veteran kicker miss two extra-point tries in the double-digit loss. With the 35-year-old kicker not scoring a single point, it's the first time he's contributed zero points since Week 8 of the 2011 season. Despite Gano producing a goose egg in Week 11, he'll look to get more involved in the scoring in Week 12 against the Dallas Cowboys.

  • Ian Thomas Has Three Catches In Week 11

    Carolina Panthers tight end Ian Thomas finished with three receptions for 24 yards on four targets in a Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. Thomas saw his first target since Week 8 with Baker Mayfield returning to the starting lineup on Sunday. Despite the uptick in Thomas' utilization, the Carolina passing attack has struggled all season and he has been out-snapped by Tommy Tremble in recent weeks, so the veteran should remain on waiver wires in all fantasy formats.

  • Michael Carter Leads The Jets Backfield...With 19 Yards

    New York Jets running back Michael Carter led the Jets backfield in carries and yards in a Week 11 loss to the New England Patriots. That's the good news. The bad news was that his eight carries turned into just 19 yards. Quarterback Zach Wilson, who had an awful game, actually led the Jets with 26 yards on the ground. Carter's eight carries were one more than James Robinson's seven, but he was equally ineffective.

  • Lions Defense Posts Two Interceptions, Two Sacks In Win

    The Detroit Lions had a solid day on defense, forcing two Daniel Jones interceptions and sacking him twice in the win over the New York Giants. Detroit surprisingly limited Saquon Barkley to just 35 yards on 17 touches, so it was arguably the strongest defensive performance of the year. However, Detroit faces the Buffalo Bills in Week 12, so don't considering playing their fantasy defense/special team on Thanksgiving.

  • Mac Jones Throws For 246 Yards In Low-Scoring Win Over Jets

    New England Patriots quarterback Mac Jones completed 23-of-27 pass attempts for 246 yards in Sunday's 10-3 win over the New York Jets. Jones wasn't asked to do much in a defensive battle and failed to throw a touchdown pass for the first time since Week 7. The 24-year-old has thrown for 1,386 yards and a 4:7 TD: INT ratio over seven games in 2022. New England continues to rely on the running game, making Jones mainly an option in superflex leagues in Week 12 against the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving night.

  • Michael Badgley Makes Five Kicks In Win

    Detroit Lions kicker Michael Badgley made his lone field goal attempt and all four of his extra point attempts in the win over the New York Giants in Week 11. The Lions' offense remains a solid unit, so he has some upside, but the aggressive nature of Dan Campbell often takes field goal attempts off the board. There are usually better streaming options that Badgley, so he doesn't enter the fantasy radar with this performance.

  • Saquon Barkley Disappoints With 35 Total Yards In Week 11 Loss

    New York Giants running back Saquon Barkley finished with only 22 rushing yards on 15 attempts while he also caught two of his five targets for 13 yards in Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions. The superstar running back surprisingly had his most ineffective game of the season in a favorable matchup versus the Lions in Week 11 after he totaled a season-high 160 scrimmage yards in Week 10. The Giants were playing from behind for the majority of the game against the Lions, but the dynamic back still wasn't involved much in the aerial attack. After a forgettable performance in Week 11, Barkley will look to bounce back in Week 12 versus the Dallas Cowboys.

  • D'Onta Foreman Shut Down In Week 11

    Carolina Panthers running back D'Onta Foreman finished with just 24 rushing yards on 11 attempts in a 13-3 loss to the Baltimore Ravens. He was unable to haul in his only target. Foreman remained the Panthers' clear RB1 this week but failed to get much going on the ground as the Carolina offense struggled with Baker Mayfield under center. Fantasy managers should keep their expectations in check again next week when Foreman faces the Denver Broncos.

  • Justin Jackson Totals 77 Yards In Win

    Detroit Lions running back Justin Jackson turned 10 touches into 77 yards in the win over the New York Giants. D'Andre Swift and Jamaal Williams were expected to split touches for the Lions, but Jackson's involvement in the offense makes this backfield even more tricky to navigate. Swift rushed for one touchdown while Williams rushed for three, but Jackson might be worth picking up in deep leagues as a handcuff in a top offensive committed to running the football.

  • Brandin Cooks Leads Team In Receiving Yards In Week 11 Loss

    Houston Texans wide receiver Brandin Cooks caught a team-high 70 yards in Sunday's loss to the Washington Commanders, but his low volume continues to be a concern. Cooks had just three receptions, and he now hasn't had more than four catches in a game since Week 4. Going forward, Cooks is a risky WR3/4 play due to his diminishing role in an offense that doesn't produce a ton of yardage.

  • Justin Fields Evaluated For Shoulder Injury

    Chicago Bears quarterback Justin Fielder (shoulder) was carted to the locker room for further evaluation and testing following Sunday's loss to the Atlanta Falcons. The mobile quarterback certainly didn't look 100 percent in the second half. He was seen clutching his shoulder and wincing in pain throughout the contest. When all was said and done, Fields finished with 14 completions for 153 yards, one touchdown, and one interception. He also rushed a whopping 18 times for 85 yards and one touchdown on the ground. Between his four sacks and staggering number of rushes, Fields clearly put his body on the line during Sunday's game. Fantasy managers should be on the lookout for an injury update later Sunday evening.

  • Daniel Jones Totals 391 Yards In Week 11 Loss

    New York Giants quarterback Daniel Jones completed 27 of his 44 attempts for 341 yards, one touchdown, and two interceptions while he also rushed for 50 yards and a touchdown in Sunday's loss to the Detroit Lions. Even though Jones threw two interceptions, he finished with a season-high in passing yards and he continues to contribute with his legs. The Giants haven't had to play from behind much this season, so it's still tough to trust the former first-round pick's passing production each week. That being said, Jones is appearing to be a viable starting option in deeper leagues due to his dual-threat ability.

  • Baker Mayfield Has Poor Showing In Week 11

    Carolina Panthers quarterback Baker Mayfield completed 21 of 33 pass attempts for 196 yards and two interceptions in a Week 11 loss to the Baltimore Ravens, adding 12 rushing yards on two carries. Mayfield struggled, to say the least, in his first start since Week 5 and did nothing to earn QB1 duties going forward. PJ Walker (ankle) is dealing with a high-ankle sprain and may miss a few more games, but it's becoming increasingly likely that Sam Darnold sees the field at some point this season. If Mayfield retains the starting job next week, he will have to face the stout Denver Broncos defense before a Week 13 bye. He should remain on fantasy waiver wires in most formats.

    Nov 20 · Source via Panthers Baker Mayfield
  • Jamaal Williams Scores Three Touchdowns Against Giants

    Detroit Lions running back Jamaal Williams rushed 17 times for 64 yards and three touchdowns in the win over the New York Giants. He rushed for just 3.8 yards per carry, but obviously, the three scores led to a big fantasy day. His outlook remains as a touchdown-or-bust option since he doesn't do much in the passing game, but since he leads in the NFL in touchdowns (12) through 11 weeks, it's nearly impossible to bench him. Detroit will continue to use him as a battering ram near the goal line.

    Nov 20 · Source via Lions Jamaal Williams
  • Jared Goff Fails To Throw Touchdown In Win

    Detroit Lions quarterback Jared Goff completed 17 of his 26 passing attempts for 165 yards, zero touchdowns, and zero interceptions in the 31-18 win over the New York Giants. Jamaal Williams and D'Andre Swift combined for four rushing touchdowns, so Goff simply fell victim to not being on the right side of the play calls in the red zone for fantasy managers. Goff's floor has been low all season, but his ceiling might be high against the Buffalo Bills next week, where he'll likely be forced into a pass-happy game script.

  • Matthew Stafford Has Second Multi-TD Game Of Season

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford completed 11-of-18 passes for 159 yards and two touchdowns in the Rams' 20-27 loss to the New Orleans Saints. He left the game late with a concussion. Both of Stafford's touchdown passes came in the first half. The 34-year-old nailed WR Tutu Atwell with a 62-yard bomb for a score on a one-play drive in the first quarter. It was Stafford's first multi-touchdown game since Week 2. Stafford missed Week 10 with a concussion, and now he is back in concussion protocol ahead of a Week 12 road game against the Kansas City Chiefs.

  • Dameon Pierce Shut Down By Commanders

    Houston Texans running back Dameon Pierce was a non-factor in Houston's loss to the Washington Commanders on Sunday. Pierce entered the game with 90 or more rushing yards in five of the last six games, but he ended the day with a career-low eight yards on the ground. He also added nine receiving yards on two catches. Pierce has been incredibly reliable in fantasy lately, but the game script and the Commanders defense both worked against him in this one. He should still be considered an RB2 going forward, but he's clearly not as safe of a play as we thought he was.

  • Davis Mills Picked Off Twice Against Washington

    Houston Texans quarterback Davis Mills was 19-for-33 for 169 yards in Sunday's loss to the Washington Commanders. He was picked off twice, but he did manage to add a rushing touchdown, finishing with 10 rushing yards on five carries. Mills has been a non-entity in the run game this season and there's no reason to think this one touchdown changes that. Overall, it was another disappointing showing from Mills, who put up most of his yards in the second half.

  • Wan'Dale Robinson Won't Return Sunday

    New York Giants rookie wide receiver Wan'Dale Robinson (knee) has been ruled out for the remainder of Week 11 against the Detroit Lions. He was very involved prior to exiting, hauling in nine of 13 targets for 100 yards through the air. It was the best game of his young career, without a doubt. New York will hope that he can return in Week 12 against the Dallas Cowboys. In the meantime, though, Kenny Golladay and Darius Slayton will lead the wide receiver corps.

  • Chris Evans Inactive Versus Steelers

    Cincinnati Bengals third-string running back Chris Evans (knee) is officially inactive for Week 11 against the Pittsburgh Steelers. He was listed as questionable after being limited in practice all week long. In his absence, Trayveon Williams is active for the second time this season.

  • Matthew Stafford Enters Concussion Protocol, Bryce Perkins Takes Over

    Los Angeles Rams quarterback Matthew Stafford was taken to the locker room and placed in concussion protocol during Sunday's game against the New Orleans Saints. Per league policy, he won't return to the contest. It's a concerning development considering Stafford was in concussion protocol just a few days ago. Not only are the Rams without Stafford for the rest of the game, but John Wolford (neck) is also inactive. As a result, third-string quarterback Bryce Perkins entered the game. Look for him to use his mobility to help lead Los Angeles down the field throughout the duration of Stafford's absence.

  • Kyle Pitts Questionable To Return

    Atlanta Falcons tight end Kyle Pitts (knee) is officially questionable to return against the Chicago Bears in Week 11. He caught three passes for 43 yards before exiting the contest. As long as Pitts is sidelined, MyCole Pruitt should see more snaps on offense. The Falcons will take on the Washington Commanders next Sunday.

  • Ezekiel Elliott Officially Active For Week 11

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Minnesota Vikings. The 27-year-old returns from a two-game absence but is still expected to split time with Tony Pollard this week. He is averaging 68 rushing yards and 0.6 touchdowns per game this season. The veteran should be viewed as a high-end RB3.

  • David Andrews, Isaiah Wynn Ruled Out Sunday

    New England Patriots center David Andrews (thigh) and tackle Isaiah Wynn (foot) have been ruled out for the remainder of Week 11 against the New York Jets. Backup guard James Ferentz will take over at center. Meanwhile, Trent Brown has replaced Wynn. These injuries spell bad news for the Patriots' rushing attack.

  • Kendall Hinton Officially Active Sunday

    Denver Broncos wide receiver Kendall Hinton (shoulder) is officially active for Week 11 against the Las Vegas Raiders. He had been listed as questionable. Hinton is expected to operate as the Broncos' No. 2 receiver this week with K.J. Hamler (hamstring) and Jerry Jeudy (ankle) sidelined. The 25-year-old had four catches for 62 yards last week and is a fine FLEX option in deeper leagues this Sunday.

  • Davante Adams Officially Active In Week 11

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams (abdomen) is officially active for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos. He had been listed as questionable, but the expectation was that he would play. The star receiver has 272 yards and three touchdowns over his last two games. He should be viewed as a high-end WR1 once again this Sunday.

    Detroit Lions cornerback Jeff Okudah has entered concussion protocol and won't return in Week 11 against the New York Giants. The 23-year-old amassed three tackles before exiting.

    Arizona Cardinals wide receiver Marquise Brown (foot) is not expected to play against the San Francisco 49ers on Monday night, according to Jordan Schultz of ESPN. He notes that although Brown isn't quite ready to return, the wideout is "feeling much better and hopes to play next week." The 25-year-old caught 43 passes for 485 yards and three touchdowns before landing on IR. With DeAndre Hopkins back from suspension and Rondale Moore emerging as a pivotal weapon, Brown will fall into the WR3 tier upon his return.

  • A.J. Terrell To Return Versus Bears

    Atlanta Falcons defensive back A.J. Terrell (hamstring) is active for the Week 11 matchup against the Chicago Bears. This is great news as the Falcons will get their top corner back after he missed each of the last three games. The 24-year-old has 29 tackles and five passes defended in seven games this season. His return is huge for this defense in what could possibly be a high-scoring matchup with the Bears. The Falcons defense is certainly not worth streaming, but getting Terrell back is a plus for this team.

  • Brevin Jordan, Eno Benjamin Not Suiting Up Sunday

    Houston Texans tight end Brevin Jordan and running back Eno Benjamin are both healthy scratches in Week 11 against the Washington Commanders. Jordan has just six catches for 32 yards through five games this season and is now inactive for the second consecutive week. Meanwhile, Benjamin is just a few days removed from his surprise release in Arizona. Evidently, he hasn't had quite enough time to learn the Texans' offense, so he'll sit out Sunday's game.

  • Velus Jones Jr. Active Against Falcons

    Chicago Bears wide receiver Velus Jones Jr. will be active for the Week 11 matchup against the Atlanta Falcons. The third-round rookie was a healthy scratch last week. Now, the Bears have decided to make Jones active for what could be a high-scoring affair with the Falcons. The assumption is that Jones will be the primary kicker returner, but also be mixed in the receiving game. Fantasy managers shouldn't bother streaming Jones considering he hasn't done much this season.

  • DeVante Parker Active Versus Jets

    New England Patriots wide receiver DeVante Parker (knee) is officially active for Week 11 against the New York Jets. He had been listed as questionable and was a true game-time decision. Despite reports that Parker wasn't moving around very well during warmups, he's active for the first time since Week 8. He's not on the fantasy radar at the moment.

  • Kenny Golladay, Wan'Dale Robinson Active For Week 11

    New York Giants wide receivers Kenny Golladay (hamstring) and Wan'Dale Robinson (hamstring) are both active for Sunday's Week 11 contest. This is good news for the Giants offense as they head into a favorable matchup against the Detroit Lions. The return of Golladay won't mean too much. He has two receptions through five games this season. He'll be a desperation deep league streaming option for this game. Robinson will have interesting flex appeal in this game. He has favorable upside and the Lions have trouble stopping any offense.

  • Jordan Poyer Officially Active Sunday

    Buffalo Bills safety Jordan Poyer (elbow) is officially active for Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns. He had been listed as questionable but practiced in full on Friday.

    Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards (hamstring, knee) is inactive for Sunday's game against the Carolina Panthers. Evidently, the Ravens are exercising a measure of caution with Edwards, who was listed as questionable but has not played since Week 8. Kenyan Drake should handle lead-back duties against Carolina, but Justice Hill also figures to get involved.

  • Lamar Jackson, Mark Andrews Officially Active Sunday

    Baltimore Ravens quarterback Lamar Jackson (illness) and tight end Mark Andrews (knee, shoulder) are active for Week 11 against the Carolina Panthers. Both stars had been listed as questionable. Jackson has completed 62.3 percent of passes for 1,768 yards, 16 touchdowns, and six interceptions. He has also continued to have a major impact on the ground, rushing for 635 yards and an additional two scores. He should be viewed as a mid-range QB1 this week. Meanwhile, Andrews has been elite when active, catching 42 passes for 488 yards and five touchdowns. Despite missing a game in Week 9 and being on bye in Week 10, Andrews is still the overall TE2 in fantasy football behind only Travis Kelce. He should be started in all leagues this week.

  • Cameron Jordan To Miss Week 11

    New Orleans Saints defensive end Cameron Jordan (eye) won't suit up for the Week 11 matchup against the Los Angeles Rams. The 33-year-old will miss his first game of his career on Sunday. Jordan played in 186 straight games before suffering an orbital bone fracture. His presence will be missed on this defensive unit on Sunday. However, Jordan is already pushing to play next week. The loss of the Pro Bowl pass rusher will certainly be a significant hit to the Saints defense.

  • David Njoku Active For Week 11

    Cleveland Browns tight end David Njoku (ankle) is officially active for Week 11 against the Buffalo Bills. He had been listed as questionable after practicing in a limited capacity on Friday. Njoku returns following a two-game absence. He has hauled in 34 passes for 418 yards and one touchdown through seven games this season, giving him plenty of appeal as a mid-to-low TE1 in fantasy football this week. His value should only rise when Deshaun Watson takes over in Week 12.

  • Minkah Fitzpatrick To Play In Week 11

    Pittsburgh Steelers safety Minkah Fitzpatrick (appendix) will play during the Week 11 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals. The 26-year-old will be back in action after missing one game due to a appendicitis. His return will be a significant boost to the Steelers defense. Through seven games, Fitzpatrick has 45 tackles, six fumbles forced, and three interceptions this season. It doesn't sound like the team plans on limiting Fitzpatrick at all. The expectation is that he'll be fully active despite recently undergoing a procedure.

    Dallas Cowboys running back Tony Pollard is expected is expected to continue getting touches despite Ezekiel Elliott (knee) likely returning on Sunday. Elliott has been sidelined the last two weeks, but it appears the plan is for Elliott to return against the Minnesota Vikings this week. Despite that, Elliott will be wearing a brace and eased back into action. Pollard should continue getting carries and will likely out-touch Elliott during Sunday's game. Fantasy managers should be able to trust Pollard as a low-end RB2, while Elliott might fall into the RB3 range for this game.

  • Jeremy Chinn Activated Off Injured Reserve

    Carolina Panthers safety Jeremy Chinn (hamstring) has been activated off the injured reserve. The 24-year-old is expected to be active for the first time since Week 4. His return is a huge boost for this defensive unit heading into a tough matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. Before going down, Chinn had 20 tackles, one sack, and two passes defended in four games. The Panthers are hopeful to have both Chinn and defensive back Jaycee Horn (foot) available for this game. Despite that, fantasy managers shouldn't trust the Panthers defense as a streaming option.

  • Jaycee Horn Questionable For Week 11

    Carolina Panthers defensive back Jaycee Horn (foot) is listed as questionable for the Week 11 matchup against the Baltimore Ravens. The team expects Horn to play in this contest, but will likely wait until closer to game time before making a final decision. The former first round pick is a big part of this secondary, so losing him would be a significant hit. Through eight games, Horn has 28 tackles, five passes defended, and two interceptions this season. Regardless of Horn's status, the Panthers defense won't be a reliable streaming option against Lamar Jackson on Sunday.

    Dallas Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott (knee) is expected to suit up for the Week 11 matchup against the Minnesota Vikings. Owner Jerry Jones mentioned earlier in the week that Elliott looks like he's going to be available for this game. It sounds like Elliott is light years ahead of last week in terms of health. It's uncertain if the team plans to limit Elliott at all during this contest. Regardless, his return would be bad news for the streaming value of Tony Pollard. Fantasy managers should consider Elliott a low-end RB2, assuming he's able to play on Sunday.

    Cincinnati Bengals wide receiver Ja'Marr Chase (hip) is off crutches following a positive medical check-up. He won't play in Week 11, but his return to the field is coming. The organization is hopeful that Chase can practice this week and hopefully play next weekend. The 22-year-old has been sidelined since Week 7 due to a significant hip injury. It sounds like he is making progress and could be back to helping fantasy managers real soon. In the meantime, Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd will see increased targets once again against the Pittsburgh Steelers in Week 11. Both are strong fantasy options against the shaky Steelers secondary this weekend.

    Atlanta Falcons quarterback Marcus Mariota doesn't appears in danger of losing his starting job. It sounds like the team plans to continue starting Mariota as long as the Falcons are in the playoff hunt. The 29-year-old has done a find job considering the lack of talent around him. However, the team might move on to rookie Desmond Ridder if they fall out of the playoff picture. It was reported earlier in the year that the Falcons didn't plan on using Ridder this season. Although, plans change, so we'll see if Ridder gets a chance late in the season. For now, the Falcons will continue to ride with Mariota as long as they continue to be competitive. Mariota is an interesting streaming option for the Week 11 matchup against the Chicago Bears. A defense that was torched by Tua Tagovailoa a few weeks ago.

  • Linval Joseph To Make Team Debut

    Philadelphia Eagles defensive tackle Linval Joseph is expected to make his team debut against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 11. It's a quick turnaround for the veteran tackle, so it's uncertain how much he'll play in this game. Also, the Eagles added Ndamukong Suh to their roster earlier this week. It doesn't sound like Suh is going to play in Week 11, but Joseph will give it a go. The addition of these tackles should help the Eagles rush defense for their postseason run. It's unlikely either player makes a big impact right away as they need to learn a new play. Despite that, Joseph is expected to be on the field in Week 11.

  • Steelers Expect Najee Harris To Get Bulk Of Carries

    Pittsburgh Steelers running back Najee Harris has been fairly disappointing through his first nine games of the season. However, the 24-year-old rushed for a season-high 99 yards last week against the New Orleans Saints. The organization believes they've found the right formula for Harris. It sounds like the team plans on giving Harris the bulk of the carries against the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 11. Harris didn't have much success against the Bengals earlier in the year. However, he was dealing with a knee injury at the time, so now we'll see what he can do fully healthy. He'll remain a RB2 for this game, but it's great to hear that the Steelers still have faith in him.

He appears on track to play, but will likely end up as a game-time decision. Fantasy managers should consider Parker a boom-or-bust flex play in deep leagues.

    Los Angeles Rams star wide receiver Cooper Kupp (ankle) is expected to miss six to eight weeks after undergoing surgery for his high ankle sprain, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. Kupp had looked great prior to the injury, amassing 75 catches, 812 yards, and six touchdowns through nine games. In order for Kupp to be activated before the end of the regular season, the Rams would need to be in contention for a playoff spot, meaning they need to bounce back from their current 3-6 record rather quickly. At this point, it seems unlikely that Kupp returns to the field in 2022.

  • Dallas Goedert, Jordan Davis Expected To Return In Regular Season

    Philadelphia Eagles tight end Dallas Goedert (shoulder) was placed on injured reserve this past week, but he is expected to return before the regular season ends, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The same is true for rookie defensive tackle Jordan Davis (ankle), who "has a chance to return when he is eligible" on December 4. Goedert has been one of the best tight ends in fantasy football this season, catching 43 passes for 544 yards and three touchdowns. Even with the addition of A.J. Brown and the emergence of DeVonta Smith, his production did not falter. Meanwhile, Davis played in seven games before being placed on IR. He amassed 14 tackles during that span.

  • Justin Jefferson Playing Through Mild Turf Toe

    Minnesota Vikings wide receiver Justin Jefferson (toe) is dealing with "mild turf toe," according to Tom Pelissero of NFL.com. The injury limited him during practice this past week but is expected to have no impact on his availability in Week 11 or beyond. Jefferson has yet to miss a game in his career, adding further value to his already elite fantasy stock.

  • Taylor Heinicke To Remain Starting QB For Now

    Washington Commanders quarterback Taylor Heinicke is expected to remain the starter even after Carson Wentz (finger) returns from injured reserve, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. Heinicke has looked solid in Wentz's absence, completing 62 percent of his passes for 840 yards, five touchdowns, and four interceptions. All the while, he has led the Commanders to a 3-1 record over the course of his four starts. Until Wentz is activated, rookie Sam Howell will operate as Heinicke's backup, and there is the potential for him to see some snaps if Sunday's game against the Houston Texans gets out of hand.

  • Davante Adams Expected To Play In Week 11

    Las Vegas Raiders wide receiver Davante Adams (abdomen) is expected to be active for Sunday's game against the Denver Broncos, according to Ian Rapoport of NFL.com. He had been limited in practice all weeklong and was ultimately labeled as "questionable" heading into the weekend. Fantasy managers should continue to view him as a high-end WR1.

  • Gus Edwards Not Expected To Play Sunday

    Baltimore Ravens running back Gus Edwards (hamstring, knee) is trending towards being inactive in Week 11 against the Carolina Panthers, according to NFL.com's Ian Rapoport. An official decision won't be made until after his pregame workout, but as of now, it looks like it will be Kenyan Drake and Justice Hill leading the rushing attack for Baltimore.

  • Keenan Allen Intends To Play On Sunday Night

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring) stated he intends to play on Sunday night against the Chiefs, according to ESPN's Adam Schefter. The wideout has appeared in only two games this season due to a nagging hamstring ailment, which has also caused Justin Herbert to struggle. With that said, Allen's official designation may not come until after lineups lock, so fantasy managers may want to consider keeping him on the bench in Week 11 in case he suffers a setback.

  • Mark Andrews Expected To Play Against Carolina

    Baltimore Ravens tight end Mark Andrews (knee, shoulder) is likely to play versus Carolina, according to ESPN NFL insider Adam Schefter. Andrews didn't suit up for the Week 9 meeting with the Saints and didn't play well in the previous two games leading up to that one. However, as expected, the 27-year-old remains a top fantasy option at the position, so managers need to get him back into the lineup against a Panthers defense that's struggled defending opposing tight ends.

  • D.J. Chark Activated From IR

    Detroit Lions wide receiver D.J. Chark has been activated from injured reserve ahead of Week 11 against the New York Giants. The 26-year-old has been sidelined since Week 3. Through three contests, he caught seven passes for 98 yards and one touchdown. The Lions are expected to be without Josh Reynolds (back) on Sunday, so look for Chark and teammate Kalif Raymond to both fill key roles behind alpha receiver Amon-Ra St. Brown.

  • Gerald Everett Downgraded To Questionable

    Los Angeles Chargers tight end Gerald Everett (groin) has been downgraded to questionable ahead of Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Everett practiced in full on Friday and was initially left off the end-of-week injury report, but it appears he suffered some type of setback and is no longer a lock to play Sunday. The 28-year-old has totaled 34 catches, 364 yards, and two touchdowns in 2022. If he can't suit up, Tre' McKitty and Richard Rodgers would see more snaps on offense.

  • David Johnson Signed To Active Roster

    The New Orleans Saints have promoted veteran running back David Johnson from the practice squad to their active roster ahead of Sunday's game against the Los Angeles Rams. The 30-year-old will fill a depth role with Mark Ingram II (knee) sidelined once again this week. Johnson hasn't played an NFL down since 2021 with Houston. Through 13 games last year, he totaled 228 rushing yards, 225 receiving yards, and one touchdown. He should be left on waivers in all fantasy leagues.

  • Mike Williams Expected To Play In Week 11

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Mike Williams (ankle) is expected to be active for Sunday's divisional clash with the Kansas City Chiefs, according to Jordan Schultz of The Score. The 28-year-old had been listed as questionable despite practicing in full on Friday. Williams is the Chargers' leading receiver this season, having caught 37 passes for 495 yards and three touchdowns through seven games. He ranks as a WR2 ahead of what should be a high-scoring affair versus Kansas City. On the topic of Chargers receivers, it's worth noting that Williams' teammate, Keenan Allen (hamstring), is also trending towards being active for just the third time this season.

  • Colt McCoy, Matt Prater Cleared For Monday Night

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Colt McCoy (knee) and kicker Matt Prater (right hip, illness) have been removed from the injury report and will be active for Week 11 against the San Francisco 49ers. McCoy drew his first start of the season last week in place of Kyler Murray (hamstring), who remains questionable heading into Monday night. The veteran looked solid, completing 26 passes for 238 yards, one touchdown, and zero interceptions. Meanwhile, Prater has made all nine extra points and all eight field goals this season, including three from beyond 40 yards.

  • Kyler Murray, DeAndre Hopkins Questionable For Monday Night

    Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray (hamstring) and DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) are officially listed as questionable for Monday Night Football versus the San Francisco 49ers. Both players were limited in practice on Saturday. Murray has played in eight games this season, completing 67 percent of his passes for 2,168 yards, 12 touchdowns, and six interceptions. If the 25-year-old can't suit up this week, veteran Colt McCoy (knee) would be in line for his second consecutive start. Meanwhile, Hopkins has impressed since returning from suspension, catching 36 passes for 396 yards and two touchdowns over four games. He should be viewed as a WR1 if healthy, though the emergence of Rondale Moore and expected return of Marquise Brown (foot) could eat into Hopkins' volume.

  • Panthers Activate S Jeremy Chinn From IR

    The Panthers will have Jeremy Chinn back in uniform in Week 11. They activated the veteran safety from injured reserve Saturday.

    Washington Commanders defensive end Chase Young (knee) won't play against the Texans. The 23-year-old was expected to return on Sunday for his first game in over a year, so the latest update is somewhat of a surprise. Fortunately, head coach Ron Rivera reported on Friday that Chase would "most certainly" be activated ahead of the Commanders' Week 12 meeting versus Atlanta, giving IDP managers something to look forward to.

  • Josh Reynolds Out Again On Sunday

    Detroit Lions wide receiver Josh Reynolds (back) won't play on Sunday against the Giants, marking his third straight absence. Reynolds, who's had 26 catches for 357 yards and two touchdowns this season, is the No. 2 wideout on the roster. However, without him, Kalif Raymond could receive some extra targets from Jared Goff. With that said, Amon-Ra St. Brown is coming off a 10-catch, 119-yard performance versus the Bears, so he should get even more chances to produce in Week 11.

  • Cardinals Add Corey Clement To Active Roster

    Arizona Cardinals running back Corey Clement has been elevated to the 53-man roster in advance of Monday's clash with the 49ers. The 28-year-old has appeared in two games for Arizona this season. However, he spent nearly all of that time on special teams. The Cards recently parted ways with Eno Benjamin, who had served as the team's starter while James Conner was out with an injury. Yet, with Conner healthy and rookie Keaontay Ingram listed as the No. 2 option on the depth chart, Clement has little room to get involved, giving him no value on the fantasy end.

  • Darrynton Evans Promoted From Practice Squad

    Chicago Bears running back Darrynton Evans has been elevated from the practice squad ahead of Sunday's game versus Atlanta. The 2020 third-round pick appeared in six games for Tennessee in the last two seasons, amassing 61 yards off 16 touches while adding two catches for 27 yards and a touchdown. He was waived back in March and was claimed off waivers by the Bears shortly after. With Khalil Herbert (hip) on injured reserve, Chicago is looking for someone to slide into the No. 2 spot. Although rookie Trestan Ebner was expected to fill that role, moving Evans up to the active roster complicates things for fantasy managers in deeper formats searching for a desperation option.

  • Kadarius Toney Has Upside In Week 11

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Kadarius Toney scored his first NFL touchdown last week against the Jaguars. Now, with JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman both out, Toney should see a full workload this week against the Los Angeles Chargers. Toney's a dynamic player who can make things happen with the ball in his hands, and with KC dealing with injuries, Toney should get his most opportunities of the season. Consider Toney to be a high-upside WR3 play this weekend.

  • Travis Kelce Remains Top Fantasy Tight End Play In Week 11

    Kansas City Chiefs tight end Travis Kelce had his worst game of the season in Week 2 against the Chargers, catching five passes for 51 yards. It's the only time this season that Kelce has failed to either record 98 receiving yards or a touchdown. But if 10.1 points in full PPR is his floor, then there's zero reason to think that Kelce isn't the top fantasy tight end heading into Sunday's rematch with the Chargers. Sure, the matchup is bad and the Chargers have allowed just one touchdown to a tight end all year, but Kelce's not your average tight end.

  • Patrick Mahomes Remains Top Fantasy Play In Week 11

    Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes threw for a season-low 235 yards when he faced the Chargers back in Week 2. That's a slight concern heading into the rematch this week, but Mahomes is on a hot streak right now, throwing for over 300 yards in four consecutive games. Last week, he tossed four touchdowns against the Jaguars. The Chargers have one of the NFL's worst run defenses, but the Chiefs have one of the worst rushing offenses, so while the numbers might suggest that the best way to attack this defense is on the ground, expect Mahomes to make most of the offense happen with his arm. He remains a high-end QB1 play.

  • 49ers DST May Face Backup QB In Week 11

    The San Francisco 49ers defensive unit faces an Arizona Cardinals team that has been battered by injuries to key offensive players. Cards QB Kyler Murray's status and that of WR DeAndre Hopkins are up in the air. Murray missed last week and is looking like a game-time decision in this week's Monday Night Football showdown. Arizona is a slightly above average offense when Murray plays, but they should be downgraded to below average if he misses this week. However, while backup QB Colt McCoy is not as dynamic as Murray, he is careful with the football; he only threw one interception last season and has a career 2.6% interception rate. The 49ers defense might limit Arizona's scoring, but they might not generate many turnovers in Week 11.

  • George Kittle Is A High-End TE1 In Week 11

    San Francisco 49ers tight end George Kittle visits Arizona in a big to regain his status as a TE1. Kittle had finished as a top 10 tight end in each of Weeks 6-8 before a disappointing one-catch game in Week 10. Now he faces the Cardinals, who have allowed the second-most points to fantasy TEs this season, so he has a good chance to get back on track. Arizona's overall pass defense is below average, and the 49ers are firing on all cylinders on offense. Kittle is a solid start with a good chance to finish as a high-end TE1.

  • Chris Evans Listed As Questionable For Week 11

    Cincinnati Bengals running back Chris Evans (knee) is listed as questionable for the Week 11 matchup against the Pittsburgh Steelers. The 25-year-old missed last week's game, but has practiced three times this week. That being said, it seems likely that Evans will be able to return this weekend against Pittsburgh. Last week, Samaje Perine played a season-high 36% of snaps with Evans sidelined. He totaled 54 yards on seven touches, but that will likely decline if Evans returns. Neither have much streaming value, but the return of Evans might take Perine off the streaming radar.

  • Za'Darius Smith Questionable For Week 11

    Minnesota Vikings linebacker Za'Darius Smith (knee) is listed as questionable for the Week 11 matchup against the Dallas Cowboys. It sounds like the 30-year-old is going to be a game-time decision for this contest. He has been limited to individual workouts this week, which puts his status up in the air. Smith leads the league in pressures and tackles for loss heading into this game. His absence would be a significant loss for this defensive unit. Third-year linebacker D.J. Wonnum would likely be asked to step up and start if Smith is unable to go.

  • Justin Simmons Will Play In Week 11

    Denver Broncos safety Justin Simmons (knee) will suit up for the Week 11 matchup against the Las Vegas Raiders. He missed last week's game, but was able to practice all this week. It appears Simmons is feeling good enough to get back on the field this weekend. Simmons has missed six of the first 10 games this season, but makes an impact when he's on the field. His return will give this defense a boost heading into their Week 11 contest.

    Cleveland Browns defensive end Chase Winovich (hamstring) has been activated from the injured reserve. The 27-year-old will be able to play for the first time since Week 2. He was traded to the Browns in March, but hasn't been able to make much of an impact. Before joining the Browns, Winovich put together some decent performances as a rotational player with the New England Patriots. The return of WInovich should give the Browns defense a slight boost.

  • Cameron Dicker Likely To Start Again In Week 11

    Los Angeles Chargers kicker Cameron Dicker appears to be on track for his third consecutive start in Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Dustin Hopkins (hamstring) has officially been listed as doubtful heading into Sunday, so the undrafted rookie should be in line for a busy night in what projects to be a high-scoring divisional showdown. Dicker has been steady in his time on the field this season as he is yet to miss a field goal or extra point attempt. Assuming Hopkins is inactive, Dicker can be started in all formats in this enticing matchup.

  • Joshua Palmer A Dicey Flex Option In Week 11

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver Joshua Palmer has seen a healthy target share as of late with Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) injured, but could fall in the pecking order as the two wideouts are questionable with a decent chance of suiting up in Week 11. Palmer does have an excellent divisional matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs, who are allowing over 38 PPR fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Fantasy managers should closely monitor any reports regarding the availability of Allen and Williams, but with kickoff not until Sunday night, a decision on whether or not to start Palmer may have to be made prematurely. This makes him a very volatile flex option in most formats.

  • Elijah Mitchell Has Workload For Flex In Week 11

    San Francisco 49ers running back Elijah Mitchell, who is facing the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11, has continued to shoulder a large enough workload to be fantasy-relevant ever since Christian McCaffrey joined the Niners. Last week, in Mitchell's return to the field following his ankle injury suffered in Week 1, the 24-year-old rushed for 89 yards on 18 carries. Niners coach Kyle Shanahan said that his choice to involve Mitchell was deliberate. With two talented running backs rotating, they will both be fresh. "I think both of them can handle the load and do it all," Shanahan said after a practice this week. McCaffrey is still the 1a and the elite of the two, but Mitchell can be an effective flex option some weeks. The Cardinals are an above-average defense against the run, but Mitchell should be an effective flex with low-end RB2 potential.

  • Justin Herbert Should Get Back On Track In Week 11

    Los Angeles Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert has disappointed for fantasy purposes for the past two weeks but will have a great opportunity to bounce back in Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs. Not only are the Chiefs allowing the fifth-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, but it seems that there is a good chance Herbert has top targets Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) available to him on Sunday night. The two wideouts are currently listed as questionable but practiced in full on Friday and expressed optimism about their status. Herbert is a solid option this week regardless, but fantasy managers should have even more confidence in him with the Chargers' offense at full strength.

    Kansas City Chiefs wide receiver Marquez Valdes-Scantling (illness) will play in Week 11 versus the L.A. Chargers. The wideout was under the weather throughout the week but practiced in full on Friday. With JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) and Mecole Hardman (abdomen) out on Sunday night, Valdes-Scantling, who had three catches for 60 yards and a touchdown against the Jaguars in Week 10, could be a featured wideout for Patrick Mahomes.

    Los Angeles Chargers wide receiver DeAndre Carter (ribs) will play on Sunday night versus the Chiefs. The 29-year-old was limited during practice for a few days throughout the week before logging a full session on Friday. Carter has played well as of late and is coming off a four-catch, one-touchdown performance against the 49ers in Week 10. With that said, Mike Williams (ankle) and Keenan Allen (hamstring) are trending toward playing in Week 11, so there won't be as much room for Carter to be involved.

  • Brandon Aiyuk Likely To Continue Hot Streak

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Brandon Aiyuk looks to continue his second-half surge against the Arizona Cardinals in Week 11. After a modest start to the season, Aiyuk blew up in Week 6, catching eight passes for 83 yards and scoring two touchdowns to finish as the WR4 in PPR. Since then, he's finished as a top 20 WR twice and as the WR28 last week. Now he faces the Cardinals, who are allowing the tenth-most yards through the air to opponents and the seventh-most receptions to fantasy WRs. Aiyuk should be expected to finish as a WR2-3 this weekend.

    Washington Commanders running back J.D. McKissic (neck) has landed on the injured reserve list and won't play again this season. The 29-year-old had four touchdowns in 2021-22. However, he hasn't had any through eight games this season. McKissic will undergo rehab over the next couple of months, although it's uncertain if he'll be ready to go for the start of the 2023-24 campaign. In the meantime, Antonio Gibson, the No. 2 option on the depth chart, could see a few additional targets out of the backfield moving ahead, while Brian Robinson should handle most of the touches on the rushing end.

  • Deebo Samuel Could Get Back On Track Week 11

    San Francisco 49ers wide receiver Deebo Samuel has a road matchup against the division rival Arizona Cardinals in Week 11. Samuel returned from missing Week 8 with a hamstring injury and resting during San Fran's Week 9 bye to gain 51 scrimmage yards in Week 10. He had four carries last week, the most he has had since Week 3, and gained 27 rushing yards. Samuel just hasn't had the same workload in the rushing game as he did last season, and he has been less explosive in the passing game, too. He has declined as the season has gone on. After three top 30 WR finishes in the first four weeks, he has only cracked the top 30 once since Week 4. His Week 11 matchup against Arizona could be a good chance to get back on track. The Cardinals are allowing the tenth-most receiving yards per game to opponents. Samuel is a volatile flex option with WR2-3 potential.

  • Isiah Pacheco Available On Sunday Night

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Isiah Pacheco (quadriceps) is off the injury report and will play on Sunday night against the Chargers. The rookie was dealing with a quad issue. However, he practiced in full all week, so his availability was never truly in question. Pacheco is coming off the best game of his young career, totaling 82 yards off 16 touches in the win over the Jaguars. While he hasn't had a touchdown since Week 1, his presence will lower Clyde Edwards-Helaire's ceiling in Week 11. With that said, Pacheco should be viewed as a flex option in deep fantasy setups.

    Kansas City Chiefs running back Jerick McKinnon (hamstring, shoulder) is off the injury report ahead of Sunday night's meeting with the Chargers. The 30-year-old has only 337 total yards and a touchdown in 2022-23. With JuJu Smith-Schuster (concussion) sidelined in Week 11, McKinnon may see an extra pass of two out of the backfield. However, he probably won't be involved enough to make a difference for fantasy managers, which has been the norm all season.

  • Gerald Everett Off The Injury Report For Week 11

    Los Angeles Chargers tight end Gerald Everett (groin) practiced in full on Friday and was removed from the injury report ahead of Sunday's meeting with the Chiefs. With Keenan Allen (hamstring) and Mike Williams (ankle) sidelined, Everett benefitted by amassing 24 targets over his last four games. However, with both wideouts trending toward returning in Week 11, the 28-year-old likely won't see as much attention from quarterback Justin Herbert. With that said, Everett does have an upside, but the potential for an underwhelming performance is greater than the alternative.
