Injury Analysis: Wilson will miss yet another week, but I expect him to return in Week 12.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Start Myles Gaskin. He has averaged 18.7 touches over the past four weeks due to Malcolm Brown’s injury, and he gets an easy matchup versus the New York Jets in Week 11.

The Jets have allowed the most fantasy points per game by a wide margin — nine more than the next closest team. The situation sets up Gaskin to bounce back after a disappointing Thursday night performance last week. Gaskin is also due for positive touchdown regression after going 0-for-2 on his goal-line carries in Week 10.

Injury Analysis: Kamara will miss his second straight game with a sprained MCL. I believe he will return in Week 12.

Mongomery will miss Week 11 with the hand injury he suffered during the Saints' Week 10 matchup vs. the Titans. I believe he will miss multiple weeks.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Mark Ingram served as the three-down running back with Alvin Kamara out in Week 10. The Saints’ all-time leading rusher stepped up in Kamara’s absence, playing 85% of the snaps.

Ingram should have a field day as the starter versus the Philadelphia Eagles, who have allowed the fourth-most rushing yards and third-most receptions to opposing running backs this season, with Kamara slated to miss his second straight game. RB/WR hybrid Ty Montgomery is also out, making it extremely likely Ingram duplicates his 18-touch workload.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 42.5 PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Green Bay Packers @ Minnesota Vikings (+1)

Injury Analysis: Jones suffered an MCL sprain in Week 10. Reports indicate he will miss 1-2 weeks, though I believe this to be overly optimistic. He has had a long history with MCL sprains, and the Packers' medical staff is known for being conservative. I do not expect Jones back until after Green Bay's Week 13 bye.

Allen Lazard has been a DNP all week, so I am pessimistic he plays in Week 11. He is dealing with a shoulder issue, most likely an A/C joint sprain. He will not have a lengthy absence.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Dillon is going to become the Packers’ new three-down workhorse with Aaron Jones sidelined due to an MCL injury. We have seen him used as a receiver out of the backfield throughout the season, and the Boston College product seems destined to take on Jones’ top-four running back route participation. Patrick Taylor Jr. is the other Packers running back of consequence, but at worst, he just takes Dillon’s previous role, which was running a route on 25% of Green Bay's passing plays.

Dillon is looking at a potential top-five route share, which sets him up to smash this week.

Without Allen Lazard, Marquez Valdes-Scantling is interesting on DraftKings at $3,700. Minnesota ranks third in fantasy points allowed per game to WRs over the last four weeks. They also rank 30th in explosive pass play rate to opposing WRs.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 47. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


San Francisco 49ers @ Jacksonville Jaguars (+6.5)

Name Position Team Injury Fantasy Rank Proj. points Wed. Status Thurs. Status Fri. Status Game Status
Deebo Samuel WR SF Shin WR7 18.1 LP LP FP (-)
James Robinson RB JAX Heel/Knee RB17 12.8 DNP LP LP Q
Carlos Hyde RB JAX Shoulder RB48 4.6 LP LP FP (-)
JaMycal Hasty RB SF Ankle RB80 0.0 DNP DNP DNP OUT
Elijah Mitchell RB SF Rib, Finger RB71 0.0 DNP DNP DNP D

Injury Analysis: Robinson is dealing with a nagging heel issue and a new knee injury. He was a DNP on Wednesday but has logged two straight limited sessions. I expect him to play in Week 11.

JaMycal Hasty has been ruled out of Week 11 with an ankle issue. I believe he will come back in the next week or two.

Elijah Mitchell has logged DNPs all week and is doubtful for Week 11. He had surgery early in the week to get a pin inserted into his finger. It typically takes a week until you can get back onto the field. I expect him back in Week 12.

Fantasy Football Analysis: No JaMycal Hasty or Elijah Mitchell means it's the Jeff Wilson Jr. show in San Francisco. At $5,100 on DraftKings, he is the closest thing to a free square in a plus-matchup versus the Jacksonville Jaguars.

As the clear-cut lead back in three games for the 49ers last season, Wilson was extremely productive and saw excellent usage. He averaged 29.7 fantasy points per game (third) and 13.9 expected fantasy points per game (20th).

Wilson also ran a route on 52% of dropbacks and averaged 22 touches per game. He is a must-play in cash formats considering his price and projected workload.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 45. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Detroit Lions @ Cleveland Browns (-12.5)

Injury Analysis: Peoples-Jones has been dealing with a groin injury. A Grade 1 groin strain typically takes two to three weeks to heal. At his position, it is a difficult injury to deal with, so I would not be shocked if he sits. If he plays, he may be hindered by the injury.

Jamaal Williams has returned to the practice field from his thigh injury. I believe he will return to action in Week 11.

Jefferson has been ruled out with a knee/ankle injury. I believe he suffered a high-ankle sprain on his TD run in Week 11. RTP is typically two to three weeks.

Goff has been a DNP all week with an oblique injury. This is an injury typically seen in baseball players and is tough to play through. I do not believe he will play in Week 11.

Fantasy Football Analysis:  Tim Boyle will make his first start of the season for Detroit with Goff ruled out. The quarterback change lowers the entire ceiling for the Lions' offense. Boyle posted a 44.0 PFF  grade and a 10.9% turnover-worthy play rate in the preseason. Wheels up for the Browns defense in DFS at $3,100.

Amon-Ra St. Brown does move up slightly in the fantasy football rankings as he was Boyle's most-targeted receiver during the exhibition games this summer. The rookie also saw a 25% target share last week.

Peoples-Jones isn't expected to play. With injuries to Schwartz as well, expected the Browns to roll out Jarvis Landry, Rashard Higgins and JoJo Natson in three-receiver sets.

I'd look to chase tight end David Njoku in DFS at $2,900 after he ran a route on 64% of team dropbacks in Week 10 instead of the fringy WRs. PFF's strength of schedule tool has the Lions has the easiest matchup for tight ends this season.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 42.5. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Baltimore Ravens @ Chicago Bears (+6)

Injury Analysis: Lamar Jackson has been dealing with an illness all week. He has been ruled out. The team has said it is not COVID related but he is having trouble breathing.

Brown logged a DNP Wednesday and Thursday but was a limited participant on Friday. He is dealing with a thigh injury, and I do not believe he plays in Week 11.

Latavius Murray has been limited all week with an ankle injury. I am optimistic Murray plays this week.

Allen Robinson II has been a DNP all week with a hamstring injury. I believe he is suffering a Grade 1 hamstring strain — return to play is 1-3 weeks.

Fantasy Football Analysis:  Simply put – if Lamar Jackson plays. You play him. If not stream Tyler Huntley in DFS at $4,100 and in SuperFlex leagues. Huntley was PFF's fifth-highest graded QB during the preseason and lead all QBs in designed rushing attempts.

Brown will not play, which gives a massive boost to Rashod Bateman‘s fantasy upside. The rookie's 12.7 expected fantasy points per game over his last three contests rank top 30 among all wide receivers. Bateman is simply too cheap as DraftKings’ 43rd priced receiver.

No Robinson moves both Darnell Mooney and Cole Kmet into starting territory at their respective positions.

Mooney has been the Chicago Bears‘ No. 1 wide receiver this season. He owns a 22% target share to Allen Robinson’s 17% target share over the past four weeks and has averaged twice as many fantasy points per game (13.0 vs 6.5).

His 12th-ranked 31% air yards share should lead to production versus the Ravens, who rank 29th in yards per pass attempt and fifth in fantasy points per game to wide receivers over the last four weeks.

Kmet ranks in the top 10 in routes run per dropback and third in target share (21%) since Week 7. He finally converted his encouraging usage into season-highs in receiving yards (87), receptions (six) and targets (eight) versus the Pittsburgh Steelers back in Week 9.

He is an option this week with a juicy matchup on deck versus the Ravens, who have allowed the third-most fantasy points to tight ends this season.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 44.5 PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Washington Football Team @ Carolina Panthers (-3)

Antonio Gibson RB WAS Shin RB20 11.4 LP LP LP (-)
Ricky Seals-Jones TE WAS Hip TE39 0.0 DNP DNP DNP OUT
Sammis Reyes TE WAS Hip 0.0 LP FP FP (-)
Curtis Samuel WR WAS Groin 0.0 DNP DNP LP Q

Injury Analysis: Seals-Jones has been ruled out after suffering a hip flexor strain during Week 10. I expect him to return in the next week or two.

Samuel has been spotted on the practice field for the first time in a while. I do not expect him to return this week, but he has a chance in the next week or two.

Fantasy Football Analysis: John Bates is $2.5K on DraftKings. He ran a route on 85% of dropbacks in the 2nd half of the team's Week 10 contest, catching all three of his targets. Bates is a big, explosive athlete — 80th percentile height, 93rd percentile three-cone, 77th percentile broad jump. He is the quintessential punt TE in DFS.

Houston Texans @ Tennessee Titans (-10)

Fantasy Football Analysis: D’Onta Foreman ($4,900) is the lowest you can go at running back on DraftKings, and it’s a leap of faith play. Foreman led the Titans’ backfield with 11 carries to Adrian Peterson’s eight in Week 10. He also played one more snap (21) than Peterson to go along with two receptions for 48 receiving yards.

Foreman is my highest-ranked Titans running back against the Houston Texans’ porous run defense in Week 11. Not only is it a revenge game for Foreman, but Houston ranks 31st in rushing yards allowed to the position this season.

No McNichols does increase Foreman's probability of seeing an expanded role in the passing game.

Arizona Cardinals @ Seattle Seahawks (+1.5)

Injury Analysis: Murray has been a limited participant all week. He is expected to be a game-time decision. It does not make for the Cardinals to play Murray when they have a bye next week. I believe he will return after their Week 12 bye.

Hopkins is set to miss his third straight game with a hamstring injury. The Cardinals are being smart about his injury, and I expect him back at 100% after their Week 12 bye.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Christian Kirk has been low-key balling out amid all the injury turmoil in Arizona. He has averaged 13.9 fantasy points per game and 2.23 yards per route run, which ranks 10th among all players with at least 25 targets.

Kirk has shown consistent production, making him a great option versus the Seattle Seahawks in Week 11. Seattle ranks fourth in targets per game allowed to wide receivers.

Don't start Murray. We have a sample size of two QBs returning from injury after extended time off – Dak Prescott, Russell Wilson – to horrible results. Let Murray prove he is healthy.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 47.5 PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.


Dallas Cowboys @ Kansas City Chiefs (-2.5)

Injury Analysis: Amari Cooper has been ruled out of Week 11 with COVID. He will also miss the Thanksgiving Day game.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Michael Gallup becomes the chalk of all chalk at just $4,200 on DraftKings without Cooper. He was already mispriced at $4,200 despite running a route on 63% of Dak Prescott’s dropbacks in his return from IR.  Gallup posted a strong 27% target rate per route run, showing that he'll still be targeted even more so with less mouths to feed. Lock him into cash lineups.

Cedrick Wilson and Dalton Schultz also get boosted from Cooper's absence.

Nevertheless, don’t be afraid to late swap to Bryan Edwards if the early games don’t go your way. He is priced $100 cheaper than Gallup and is coming off an impressive three-catch, 88-yard performance (2.67 yards per route run).

The Over/Under for this game is currently 56.5 PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.

New York Giants @ Tampa Bay Buccaneers (-11)

Injury Analysis: Godwin has been limited with the foot injury he has been dealing with for the past couple of weeks. I expect him to play in Week 11.

Gronkowski has been a full participant this week. I expect him to make his return to action on Monday Night Football.

Brown has been a DNP, so week and I expect him to miss yet another game. I believe he is a couple of weeks away from playing.

Fantasy Football Analysis: Adhere on the side of caution with Gronk. The last time he played, the burley tight end was forced out of action due to back spasms. Unless you need a 25-point performance from your TE Monday night, I'd look towards safer options. He is the consensus TE17 in the rankings.

The Over/Under for this game is currently 49.5. PFF Greenline uses exclusive game and player data to make projections on NFL game spreads, moneyline, and over/under.
