Fantasy football rankings, Week 11

One of the highest over/unders on the year exists in week 11. That is, of course, the matchup between the Dallas Cowboys at Arrowhead Stadium against the Kansas City Chiefs. The over/under is set at 56.5 with the Chiefs favored by only 2.5 points. Was Patrick Mahomes five touchdown, 400-yard performance in week 10 against the Raiders an aberration from his recent play? Or, are the Chiefs back?! Let’s see if Dan Quinn, a former Cover-3 heavy disciple sufferers the same fate as Gus Bradley in week 10.

I want so many pieces of that Dallas/Chiefs matchup. The forecast predicts good weather, so this could be a very exciting fantasy matchup. Both the Cleveland/Detroit game, and the Texans/Titans matchup could have light rain, but I don’t expect it to impact the games all too much. The next highest game on the slate is the Raiders hosting the Bengals at 50 points (per draftkings sportsbook).

There are several injuries to monitor heading into the week. 49ers RB Elijah Mitchell had surgery on his finger and general manager John Lynch stated on Friday that it may be more difficult for him to play than they originally anticipated. If you haven’t already, see if Jeff Wilson Jr. is still available on your waiver wire. He recently came off the I.R. and has been used sparingly. His workload should increase drastically with no Mitchell, and we’ve seen great success from Wilson in Kyle Shanahan’s system in the recent past.

Kyler Murray is trending towards playing, but it’s not certain. The Cardinals are BYE next week, but the doctors cleared Murray to play this week, so the decision is on him. He may be limited from a mobile standpoint, but this is a solid matchup against Seattle. Alvin Kamara also may not play on Sunday which gives a huge bump to Mark Ingram II in a matchup against the Eagles who surrender the 8th most fantasy points to running backs; that is compounded by the rushing identity of the Saints offense.

It appears tight end Rob Gronkowski should be available to play on Monday Night Football, and Nick Chubb has returned from the COVID-19 list. The Giants could be without Logan Ryan on Monday, which could be great for both Gronkowski and Chris Godwin over the middle of the field. Saquon Barkley is returning as well.

If you have any expendable spots on your roster, look to see if these players/defenses are available for prime week 12 fantasy matchups; the Cardinals and Chiefs are the two teams that will be BYE next week:
