BUF @ DET
- Josh Allen depended on Isaiah McKenzie a lot on this overtime win, and he could have value down the stretch.
- Devin Singletary continued to run well and is still ahead of James Cook, but Cook is worth an injury-upside backup roster spot if benches are long enough.
- Dawson Knox was quiet after back-to-back good games, but tight end is so barren that he’s still startable against the Patriots on Thursday.
- D'Andre Swift had multiple shots at scores and is still a flex option. Hopefully, with a long rest, he’ll be ready to get more work against Jacksonville this week and justify a spot in lineups.
- This offense will keep Jared Goff a viable streamer down the stretch.
NYG @ DAL
- Saquon Barkley scored but was otherwise a non-factor for fantasy. He’s slowing down.
- Richie James was a frequent short-range target and could have some value in deep PPR leagues.
- Ezekiel Elliott looked sharper than Tony Pollard, and both are RB2 plays going forward.
- Michael Gallup is trending up coming off of a good game with Odell Beckham Jr still unsigned and weeks away from playing.
NE @ MIN
- Mac Jones is coming on as a fantasy quarterback, and he has a good schedule vs. the pass after this week’s game against Buffalo. He has streamer potential in 1QB leagues.
- Damien Harris left with an injury, making Rhamondre Stevenson the clear #1 again for at least Week 13.
- Jakobi Meyers left with a shoulder injury but returned and should play in Week 13. Nelson Agholor had a good game partly because of extra snaps from Meyers sitting, but he could have some staying power in deep leagues because of the Patriots' schedule and Harris’s injury.
- Hunter Henry was the better tight end play, and he’s the preferred Patriots streamer if you need help from the waiver wire.
- Justin Jefferson is the man, and Adam Thielen can still produce while Jefferson is having a ceiling game.
HOU @ MIA
- Kyle Allen was actually worse than Davis Mills. Start your D/STs against Houston.
- Dameon Pierce is unstartable unless the Texans can get their offense jumpstarted.
- Jordan Akins has some appeal as a waiver desperation play, with Allen targeting him frequently during garbage time.
- The Dolphins got a defensive score, were up 30-0 at the half, and Tua Tagovailoa had an injury scare right after starting left tackle Terron Armstead left the game, so it was a quiet game for this offense.
- Myles Gaskin was the next man up at running back, with Raheem Mostert out and Jeff Wilson struggling with cramps. Gaskin should be added where bench size allows.
CIN @ TEN
- Joe Burrow took the Titans defense's best shot and still bested them. With Ja'Marr Chase back next week, he’s clearly in the top five fantasy quarterbacks going forward.
- Samaje Perine also matched the Titans defensive intensity and was able to score and post a solid game despite a tough matchup. He’s a strong RB2 against the Chiefs if Joe Mixon misses Week 13.
- Tyler Boyd is behind Hayden Hurst in the pecking order and will be droppable in short-bench leagues when Chase returns. Hurst remains a solid high-floor tight end play.
- Ryan Tannehill wasn’t able to generate touchdowns and the Titans lost in part because of it. The offense will rest on his shoulders, and better days could be coming. But maybe not against the Eagles this week.
- Derrick Henry had a long catch and run but fumbled inside the five, and Treylon Burks recovered it for his first NFL score. Henry has been ineffective as a runner for three straight weeks and is taking a lot of hits. Make sure Dontrell Hilliard is rostered in your league.
- Burks had a decent line (better if you get credit for the fumble recovery score), and he could have staying power if the Titans have to rely on Tannehill more than Henry to move the ball.
DEN @ CAR
- Latavius Murray is running well, but in this offense, he’s still only a desperation play. His lead-back role does make him useful emergency depth.
- Courtland Sutton’s ceiling hasn’t gone up with Jerry Jeudy’s injury, but his floor has. He’s a WR3/Flex option if Jeudy is out against Baltimore.
- Sam Darnold at least can get the ball to D.J. Moore. Moore is back in WR3/Flex consideration after the bye.
- D’Onta Foreman will get as much work as he can handle as long as the Panthers are competitive. With games against Seattle, Pittsburgh, Detroit, and Tampa Bay left, it’s not clear how much value he’ll have.
