Every Monday, we’ll bring you five key storylines borne out by PFF's grades and data. Here’s what stood out in Week 11.

QB Justin Herbert, Los Angeles Chargers

PFF Grade: 92.7

There wasn’t much more Herbert could have done to lead the Chargers to victory against the Green Bay Packers in Week 11. His official stats, going 21-of-36 for 260 yards and a pair of touchdowns, were solid enough, but they are even better when considering that Los Angeles receivers dropped six passes, tied for the most in the NFL this week.

WR Brandon Aiyuk, San Francisco 49ers

PFF Grade: 87.6

Tyreek Hill and A.J. Brown have received most of the attention when discussing elite wide receivers, but Aiyuk is proving that his name belongs in the conversation. In the 49ers’ Week 11 win over the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, he picked up 156 yards on just five receptions, including a 76-yard touchdown. All five of his catches resulted in a first down or a touchdown, and three of them went for 15 or more yards. He finished the day averaging 5.38 yards for every route run.

WR Tank Dell, Houston Texans

PFF Grade: 91.3

Dell has virtually no shot at winning Offensive Rookie of the Year if his quarterback, C.J. Stroud, continues to play this well, but the Texans’ third-round draft pick has still shined. He averaged 4.38 yards per route run in Week 11, with six of his eight receptions going for 15-plus yards.

EDGE Micah Parsons, Dallas Cowboys

PFF Grade: 94.5

Parsons was on the field for 30 pass-rushing snaps in Dallas’ Week 11 win over the Carolina Panthers, racking up three sacks and six hurries to give him a 30.0% pressure rate on the day. With another three wins that didn’t result in pressure, he finished the game with a 40.0% pass-rush win rate — a performance that keeps him battling with the Cleveland BrownsMyles Garrett and the Pittsburgh SteelersT.J. Watt for Defensive Player of the Year honors.

CB Rasul Douglas, Buffalo Bills

PFF Grade: 96.3

The Bills added Douglas at the trade deadline, and the move is already paying dividends. On the field for 38 coverage snaps in the win over the New York Jets, Douglas was targeted four times but didn’t allow any receptions. He had a pair of interceptions and forced an incompletion on another target, finishing the game having surrendered a 0.0 NFL passer rating on throws into his coverage.
