Here are PFF staff best bets in the early-Sunday window in Week 11:

Tej Seth: New Orleans Saints RB Alvin Kamara — Under 65.5 rush yards vs Los Angeles Rams

Bet Gameplan: Playable to 63.5

Kamara Hasn’t Been Explosive: The NFL's second-least explosive rusher this season, only ahead of Washington Commanders running back Brian Robinson Jr., Kamara rushes for 5+ yards above expectation on 4.5% of his attempts.

Tommy Jurgens: Houston Texans (+3.5) VS Washington Commanders

Letdown spotCovering in five straight, including beating the perceived best team in football on primetime, Washington now travels to face the worst team in the NFL on a short week. This is the definition of a letdown spot, and my numbers support the notion that Washington is being overvalued.

PFF Forecast: Chicago Bears +3 @ Atlanta Falcons

The  Falcons place 31st in EPA per rush allowed on the season, fresh off getting trampled over by Panthers running back D’Onta Foreman to the tune of 130 yards on Thursday Night. Atlanta hasn’t faced a mobile quarterback in the same stratosphere as Fields yet this season, and Fields has also made strides as a passer over the past month that at least put him on par with Falcons quarterback Marcus Mariota.

Martyn Carlisle: Falcons RB Tyler Allgeier — Over 32.5 rush yards

Bet Gameplan: Playable to 35.5
The Falcons split carries a little more last week when they were down by multiple scores for most of the game, but Tyler Allgeier still had the most carries of any of the backs and he is still going to be RB 1b to Cordarrelle Patterson going forward. The Bears defense has coped well enough with the losses of Roquan Smith and Robert Quinn, keeping the rushing totals low against the Miami Dolphins and Detroit Lions, but ultimately this line is at least a few yards too low for a running back who is likely to carry to ball 10 times.

Judah Fortgang: Bears -2.5 + team total Over 20.5

• While the market is slow to buy Justin Fields because it is a small sample size, that is precisely our source of value, understanding the change is not variance — as spikes in production can often be — but refers to a fundamental shift in the way the Bears' offense is designed and run.

Arjun Menon: New York Giants QB Daniel Jones — Over 34.5 rushing yards vs Detroit Lions

Bet Gameplan: Playable to 36.5

Six opposing QBs have hit their rushing prop vs Lions: Detroit has been getting absolutely torched by QB rushing yards this season, allowing the most of any defense in the NFL. Justin Fields ran for 141 yards, Aaron Rodgers ran for 41 yards, and Geno Smith ran for 49 yards.
