Garbage time fantasy report: Week 11's garbage timers

Week 11 was the second consecutive week with paltry garbage-time production. The Bills, Raiders, and Packers were the only three teams this week that took more than 16 offensive snaps in garbage time. The Bills were the most effective of the three when the game script tilted their way, but that success came only after likely one-and-done starter Nathan Peterman was benched in the second half. If you started Tyrod Taylor, then congratulations, you’re a wizard. Meanwhile, the Raiders and Packers combined to score just one touchdown in garbage time, and it was the only one they scored in their games, period.


Derek Carr threw that touchdown to Amari Cooper, and in such an underwhelming week, it was enough to elevate both players to the top of their garbage-time leaderboards.
