Last week in this spot I wrote about Patrick Mahomes and his recent struggles prior to Week 10 at Las Vegas. I expected him to have a dominant game, and he responded with a season-high 46 Fantasy points against the Raiders with 406 passing yards and five touchdowns.

A big reason why was Darrel Williams, who had 11 carries for 43 yards, along with a whopping nine catches for 101 yards and a touchdown on nine targets. I thought that could be the last time Fantasy managers get to rely on Williams as a starter with Clyde Edwards-Helaire (knee) coming back, but that might not be the case.

Andy Reid said Wednesday that Edwards-Helaire could be out in Week 11 to give him additional time to get healthy. Kansas City has a bye in Week 12, and Reid said "if we feel like he's not ready, then we won't put him in there" against the Cowboys on Sunday.

If that happens, and Edwards-Helaire is out again, then Williams remains a high-end No. 2 Fantasy running back in all leagues. In five games with Edwards-Helaire out, Williams has four outings with at least 19 total touches and has scored at least 16 PPR points three times.

The Cowboys-Chiefs game has the highest projected score of the week at 56 points, so Williams has the chance for another stellar outing. Dallas also has allowed four running backs to score at least 11 PPR points in the past four games, with three touchdowns allowed over that span.

Keep an eye on what happens with Edwards-Helaire prior to Sunday. And if he's out again then start Williams with confidence in all formats.

This should be Tua Tagovailoa's time to shine. He's past the trade rumors (for now) of the Dolphins trying to replace him. He's mostly past the finger injury that has limited him the past two weeks. And he has a favorable matchup in Week 11 at the Jets.

I'm buying that Tagovailoa will have a big game against the Jets. We've already seen him thrive in favorable matchups this season against the Jaguars in Week 6 and the Falcons in Week 7, and he scored at least 25 Fantasy points in each outing.

He came on for an injured Jacoby Brissett (knee) in Week 10 against Baltimore and closed out a surprise victory against the Ravens with 12 Fantasy points in the second half. Let's hope that momentum carries over to this week.

The Jets have allowed at least 24 Fantasy points to five opposing quarterbacks in a row, including Matt Ryan, Mac Jones, Joe Burrow, Carson Wentz and Josh Allen. Tagovailoa will be next, and he has top-10 upside this week in all leagues.

It hasn't been a smooth season for Tagovailoa -- or an easy start to his NFL career. But he has the opportunity to silence his critics, especially if he plays well and wins games like this against the Jets. That's what I'm expecting to happen for him in Week 11.

Herbert has been held in check lately, scoring 16 Fantasy points or less in three of his past four games. But he'll break out of his slump this week against the Steelers at home because Pittsburgh's defense is beat up. T.J. Watt (hip/knee) and Joe Haden (foot) are uncertain for Week 11, while Minkah Fitzpatrick (COVID-19) is unlikely to play. If all three are out, Herbert should have the chance for a quality outing and could be a top five Fantasy quarterback.

Burrow had his worst game of the season by far prior to Cincinnati's bye in Week 10 when he scored just seven Fantasy points against Cleveland in Week 9. That snapped a six-game stretch where he scored at least 22 Fantasy points, but Burrow should rebound this week against the Raiders. Three of the past four opposing quarterbacks against Las Vegas have scored at least 23 Fantasy points, including Patrick Mahomes last week when he snapped out of his slump with 46 points. Burrow will likely be around his average of 22.0 Fantasy points per game, making him a quality starter this week.

Tannehill has struggled as a Fantasy quarterback this season, but he has scored at least 20 Fantasy points in three of his past four games. It's helped that he's also rushed for a touchdown in four of his past five outings. This week, he's facing a Texans defense that has allowed five quarterbacks to score at least 25 Fantasy points, and he averages 28.5 Fantasy points per game against Houston in his past four meetings.

Newton didn't start in Week 10 at Arizona, which was his first game back with the Panthers this year. But he still managed 13 Fantasy points, which included a rushing touchdown and a passing touchdown to Robby Anderson. Let's hope Newton can relive his glory days in Carolina, and he must be ecstatic to be starting his first home game with the Panthers since Week 2 of 2019. It helps that he's facing a Washington defense without Chase Young (ACL) and Montez Sweat (jaw). Washington also has allowed an average of 27.3 Fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this year. I like Newton as a low-end starter in all leagues.

And he's now scored at least 21 Fantasy points in three of his past four games and in six of nine outings this season. Carr should have another quality Fantasy performance this week against the Bengals, who have allowed 20 or more Fantasy points to four of their past five opposing quarterbacks. I like Carr as a low-end starter in Week 11.

Fields had two strong games prior to Chicago's bye in Week 10, and hopefully he continues to improve down the stretch, starting with what has become an easy matchup against Baltimore in Week 11. Fields scored 27 Fantasy points in Week 8 against San Francisco and 19 Fantasy points at Pittsburgh in Week 9, and he's rushed for at least 38 yards in four games in a row. The Ravens have allowed at least 25 Fantasy points to three of their past five opposing quarterbacks, and Fields should be considered a low-end starter in deeper leagues.

Garoppolo only scored 19 Fantasy points in Week 10 against the Rams, but he had at least 23 Fantasy points in each of his previous two starts against the Bears and Cardinals. He's improved as a Fantasy quarterback, and he's keeping Trey Lance on the bench. Garoppolo can be a low-end starter in all leagues, starting in Week 11 at Jacksonville. Now, the Jaguars have held Josh Allen and Carson Wentz to a combined 16 Fantasy points in the past two games, but for the season, Jacksonville has allowed five quarterbacks to score at least 25 Fantasy points.

Ryan is without Calvin Ridley (personal), and Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) could also be out. It will be tough to trust Ryan without those two guys, and the Patriots also do well against opposing tight ends, which will be a problem for Kyle Pitts. New England has held four quarterbacks in a row -- Mike White, Herbert, Sam Darnold and Baker Mayfield -- to 16 Fantasy points or less, and this should be a rough week for Ryan, especially with a beat up receiving corps.

Wentz was a dud as the Start of the Week in Week 10 with just seven Fantasy points against the Jaguars, which snapped a string of him scoring at least 20 Fantasy points in six games in a row. I don't expect him to play well this week against the Bills, who have only allowed two quarterbacks to score at least 22 Fantasy points and give up an average of just 11.8 Fantasy points per game to the position. Wentz is only worth starting in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues.

Heinicke has not been a good Fantasy quarterback of late, and he comes into Week 11 at Carolina with just one game over 17 Fantasy points in his past five outings. I don't expect him to play well this week against the Panthers, who have shut down opposing quarterbacks of late. Daniel Jones, Ryan, Mac Jones and Cardinals backups Colt McCoy and Chris Streveler have combined for just 33 Fantasy points in the past four games against Carolina. Heinicke is only worth starting in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues.

While the Packers offense usually generates the headlines in Green Bay, it's been the defense that has carried this team over the past three games while Aaron Rodgers, Davante Adams, Aaron Jones, Allen Lazard and Robert Tonyan have all battled injuries or COVID-19 positives. In the past three games against Kyler Murray, Patrick Mahomes and Russell Wilson, that trio combined for just 25 Fantasy points with one touchdown and four interceptions. We'll see if the Packers defense can contain Cousins this week, and he scored at least 21 Fantasy points in two games in a row prior to Week 11. But in his past four meetings with Green Bay, Cousins is averaging just 13.8 Fantasy points per game. He is only worth starting in two-quarterback and Superflex leagues this week.

While we hate to see players like Aaron Jones (knee) get hurt, it's great for those Fantasy managers with a lottery ticket like Dillon, who showed you his upside in Week 10 against Seattle with 23 total touches, 128 total yards and two touchdowns. He's set for a big role again, and he has top-five upside this week against the Vikings, who were missing five starters on defense in Week 10 against the Chargers when Michael Pierce, Anthony Barr, Danielle Hunter, Harrison Smith and Patrick Peterson were all out. It helps Dillon that Minnesota has allowed seven touchdowns to running backs in the past five games.

Even if Damien Harris (concussion) plays, I would still trust Stevenson as no worse than a flex option this week. He's still going to play in tandem with Harris, and Stevenson might have done enough in Week 10 against Cleveland to be the No. 1 option in the backfield after he had 114 total yards and two touchdowns. The Falcons have allowed seven total touchdowns to running backs in their past five games, and Stevenson has top-10 potential once again if Harris is out.

Fantasy managers might have been hesitant to get Montgomery back in their lineups for Week 9 against Pittsburgh after he came back from a four-game absence with a knee injury. He played well with 13 carries for 63 yards, along with two catches for 17 yards, and most importantly, he kept Khalil Herbert off the field by playing 85 percent of the snaps. This week, Montgomery gets reinforcements with the Bears hoping to have left tackle Teven Jenkins (back) active, which would also help Justin Fields. The Ravens have been stingy against opposing running backs this season, but Montgomery is still trustworthy as a No. 2 Fantasy option in all leagues.

Barkley is expected to return after being out five weeks with an ankle injury, and he gets a boost with Tampa Bay down standout defensive tackle Vita Vea (knee). The hope is Barkley looks like the player we saw prior to hurting his ankle in Week 5 at Dallas when he had 21 and 29 PPR points in the previous two games against Atlanta and New Orleans. And Tampa Bay has allowed a running back to score or gain 100 total yards in three games in a row with Herbert in Week 7, Alvin Kamara in Week 8 and Antonio Gibson last week. Barkley should be considered a high-end No. 2 running back in all leagues.

It's time to ride the Gaskin roller coaster again, but this time it should be fun with a matchup against the Jets. Last week, three Buffalo running backs combined for four touchdowns against the Jets, who allow the most Fantasy points to the position and have already given up 20 total touchdowns to running backs. In their past four games alone, the Jets have allowed 11 rushing touchdowns and three receiving touchdowns to running backs, and Gaskin should continue to be the lead rusher for Miami with Malcolm Brown (thigh) still out. Gaskin has two games with at least 15 PPR points in his past four outings, and he should have another quality outing this week.

We'll hopefully find out the status of Elijah Mitchell (finger) prior to Sunday, but Wilson will have a prominent role even if Mitchell plays. Wilson had 10 carries for 28 yards in Week 10 against the Rams in his season debut after being out with a knee injury, and he would be a flex option against the Jaguars if Mitchell is healthy. But without Mitchell, Wilson would have top-20 upside as the lead running back for the 49ers. Mitchell had at least 18 carries in three of his past four games, and Wilson would likely inherit the majority of that work in a matchup with the Jaguars.

I hope the Titans decide to give more work to Foreman and less for Adrian Peterson moving forward. Peterson looks like a 36-year-old the past two games with a combined 18 carries for 42 yards and a touchdown, along with two catches for 4 yards on two targets. Foreman, meanwhile, has 16 carries for 59 yards over that span, along with two catches for 48 yards on two targets. This will probably continue to be a shared backfield, with Jeremy McNichols also in the mix, but I'd use Foreman as a flex option this week. Against the Texans in Week 11, Foreman could go off in a revenge game since he started his career in Houston in 2017.

Drake busted in Week 10 against the Chiefs with four carries for 16 yards, along with two catches for 15 yards on three targets. That snapped a streak of three games in a row with at least 16 PPR points, but I expect him to rebound this week against the Bengals. Cincinnati is second in the NFL in receptions allowed to running backs with 70, and Drake should play in the passing game in tandem with Josh Jacobs. While Jacobs remains a quality No. 2 Fantasy running back in all leagues, Drake has flex appeal in PPR. He has 13 catches in his past four games.

McKissic was a letdown in Week 10 against the Buccaneers with two carries for 4 yards, along with four catches for 35 yards on four targets. Washington surprised Tampa Bay, and Antonio Gibson was able to have success on the ground. We'll see if Gibson can do something similar against Carolina, but I expect Washington to be chasing points this week against the Panthers. As such, I expect McKissic to play more and have more action in the passing game. He's scored at least 16 PPR points in three of his past six games, and I expect him to be close to that this week. He's a high-end PPR flex in Week 11.

We'll find out if Cordarrelle Patterson (ankle) plays this week, and if he's active then Davis should be totally ignored. If Patterson is out, Davis has a chance to help Fantasy managers, moreso in PPR. The Patriots have struggled with pass-catching running backs, and Davis has four games this season with at least three catches. But he also has one game with more than two PPR points in his past four outings, and we could see more of Wayne Gallman this week and moving forward. If Patterson is out, Davis is a flex option at best in most leagues.

We'll find out if Miles Sanders (ankle) is able to return this week, and if that happens then it would be hard to trust Howard. But I don't love Howard even if Sanders is out. He needs to score a touchdown to help your Fantasy team since he doesn't work in the passing game, and he scored an empty eight points last week despite 12 carries for 83 yards at Denver. This is also a brutal matchup against the Saints, who are No. 2 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to running backs. New Orleans hasn't allowed a running back to score on the ground in the past four games against Seattle, Tampa Bay, Atlanta and Tennessee.

The matchup isn't terrible against the Cardinals in Week 11, but I would only use Collins as a flex option at best in most leagues.

Singletary comes into Week 11 against the Colts with consecutive games of double digits in PPR points for the first time since Weeks 1 and 2. He scored 12 PPR points in Week 9 at Jacksonville and 11 PPR points in Week 10 at the Jets. He had 13 total touches against the Jaguars when Zack Moss suffered a concussion, but he had eight total touches against the Jets with Moss back, as well as Matt Breida getting work. It's a messy backfield, and Singletary is too risky to trust. From Weeks 3-8, Singletary averaged just 5.0 PPR points per game, and I'm concerned about that player showing up again in Week 11 against Indianapolis. Moss remains my favorite Buffalo running back, and he's just a flex play this week in most leagues.

Gibson broke out of his slump in Week 10 against Tampa Bay when he had 21 PPR points, which ended a three-game stretch where he scored eight PPR points or less. I hope it's a sign of things to come, but I'm still not fully back on board with him as a must-start Fantasy running back. While it was great to see him get 24 carries against the Buccaneers, he only managed 64 yards and scored twice. He also had just two catches for 14 yards on two targets. This is also a tough matchup for Gibson in Week 11 since Carolina is No. 4 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to running backs. The Panthers have allowed just five touchdowns to running backs this year, and Gibson's Fantasy production could be minimal if he doesn't find the end zone. He's a low-end No. 2 running back at best this week, with his value slightly higher in non-PPR leagues.

It's been tough to trust Moore lately since he's scored nine PPR points or less in three games in a row, and he hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 4. But he'll break out of his slump this week against Washington with Cam Newton under center. Washington is No. 2 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers, and the pass rush shouldn't be a problem for Newton with Chase Young (ACL) and Montez Sweat (jaw) injured. Moore has top-15 upside in all leagues this week.

Higgins hasn't scored a touchdown since Week 2, so he's due to find the end zone. He's still scored 13 PPR points in three games in a row coming into Week 11, and he has at least eight targets in two of his past three outings. He's clearly been outplayed by Ja'Marr Chase, but Higgins should still be considered a quality No. 2 Fantasy receiver in all leagues, with his value slightly higher in PPR.

Waddle will continue to be the No. 1 receiver for the Dolphins with DeVante Parker (shoulder) and Will Fuller (finger) sidelined, and he should once again soak up plenty of volume from Tua Tagovailoa. He has at least eight targets in four of his past five games, and he scored at least 15 PPR points in three of those outings. In their past three games against Cincinnati, Indianapolis and Buffalo, the Jets have allowed six receivers to score at least 13 PPR points, with four touchdowns. Waddle has the chance to go off in this matchup.

Renfrow continues to have a solid season heading into Week 11 against Cincinnati, and he's become a must-start PPR receiver -- and a borderline starter in all leagues. He's scored at least 12 PPR points in three games in a row, and he has a touchdown in each of his past two outings against the Giants and Chiefs. He has six games this season with at least eight targets, and he's averaging 14.3 PPR points over that span. He should continue to see plenty of targets from Derek Carr in this matchup, and Renfrow should have the chance for another quality performance against the Bengals at home.

Cooks didn't have a great game in Week 9 at Miami in the first action with Tyrod Taylor since Week 2, finishing with just six catches for 56 yards. But he had 14 targets against the Dolphins, and he should continue to get plenty of attention moving forward, including in Week 10 at Tennessee. The Titans are No. 1 in Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers, and six receivers have scored at least 11 PPR points against Tennessee in the past three games. In two games against the Titans last year, Cooks had 20 catches for 234 yards and three touchdowns, so hopefully he stays hot in this matchup.

Mooney went into his bye in Week 10 having scored at least 12 PPR points in three of his past four games. He has three games with at least six targets over that span, and he's become the go-to receiver for Justin Fields. I wouldn't be surprised if Allen Robinson starts to play better down the stretch, and you can use him as a low-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver this week against the Ravens. But I like Mooney more based on his big-play ability, and Baltimore has allowed five receivers to score at least 12 PPR points in the past three games. Mooney is a high-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver in all leagues.

Bateman continued to be a go-to option for Lamar Jackson in Week 10 at Miami even with Sammy Watkins back on the field. Bateman had six catches for 80 yards on eight targets, and he now has at least six targets in every game he's played. He's still looking for his first touchdown, but I love his upside as a top weapon for Jackson. And Chicago is No. 6 in most Fantasy points allowed to opposing receivers, so look for Marquise Brown and Bateman to both play well this week.

In the first game with Julio Jones (hamstring) on injured reserve, Johnson stepped up for the Titans with five catches for 100 yards on six targets against New Orleans in Week 10. This is now three games this season with at least five targets for Johnson, but his performance against the Saints was by far his best. We'll see if he can build off game in Week 11 against Houston, and Johnson is worth using as a low-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver in deeper leagues. The Texans have allowed five touchdowns to opposing receivers in their past three games, which bodes well for A.J. Brown and Johnson this week.

Landry said earlier this week that "I haven't been getting the ball so much," which could lead to a squeaky wheel game against the Lions. He's dealing with a knee injury, but as long as he's playing, he should be worth using as a No. 3 PPR receiver against Detroit. The Lions have allowed five receivers to score at least 13 PPR points in the past three games, and Landry will end his slump of scoring nine PPR points or less in four games in a row. It will also help if Donovan Peoples-Jones is out after he hurt himself during Wednesday's practice.

The Cowboys-Chiefs game has the highest projected score of the week at 56 points, so you want players from this game in your Fantasy lineup. Aside from the obvious guys, you should consider Gallup as a No. 3 receiver in the majority of leagues. He didn't do much in Week 10 against Atlanta with three catches for 42 yards on five targets, but hopefully that was the shake-the-rust-off game after being out with a calf injury since Week 1. This week, don't be surprised if Gallup finds the end zone against the Chiefs, who have allowed three touchdowns to receivers in the past two games.

Golladay has yet to find the end zone this season, and he has one game with more than 10 PPR points. Sterling Shepard (quad) is likely out this week, which could mean more targets for Golladay, but Daniel Jones will also lean on Kadarius Toney, Evan Engram and Saquon Barkley, among others. Tampa Bay's pass defense has also improved dramatically of late, and the Buccaneers have allowed just two touchdowns to opposing receivers in their past six games. At best, use Golladay as a low-end No. 3 Fantasy receiver on Monday night.

Jones is tough to trust since he's scored more than eight PPR points just once in his past six games. He has one touchdown since Week 2, and he's been over 35 receiving yards just once since Week 3. Jamal Agnew is the lone Jaguars receiver to consider this week, and he's just a desperation play in the majority of leagues. Jones is only worth consideration in deeper formats with the hope that he connects with Trevor Lawrence for a touchdown.

Raiders cornerback Nate Hobbs has done well against slot receivers this year, so Boyd is likely looking at another disappointing outing. While Chase and Higgins have been productive for most of this season, we've seen Boyd struggle, and he comes into Week 11 with one game of more than seven PPR points in his past five outings, along with just two touchdowns on the season. It's hard to feel comfortable starting Boyd, even in deep PPR leagues.

Green might get Kyler Murray (ankle) back for this week, and it sounds like DeAndre Hopkins (hamstring) could remain out. That seems like a good setup, but I would still sit Green in most formats. Christian Kirk would be worth using as a borderline starter with his matchup against Seattle's Ugo Amadi in the slot, but Green could struggle against D.J. Reed or Tre Brown on the perimeter. And if Murray is out again, Green is not startable in any formats.

T.Y. Hilton has played the majority of two games this season, which are Week 6 against Houston and Week 10 against Jacksonville. In those two games, Pittman has struggled, scoring five PPR points against the Texans and 12 PPR points against the Jaguars. Those are the only two games since Week 5 where he's been under 17 PPR points. Hilton is expected to play against the Bills this week, and it's a tough matchup for Pittman, who could see shadow coverage from Tre'Davious White. Buffalo is No. 1 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to receivers, and the Bills have given up just three touchdowns to opposing receivers this year. Pittman is only worth using as a No. 3 Fantasy receiver in most leagues.

Arnold now has three games in a row with at least seven targets and has scored at least 10 PPR points in four of his past five games. He's worth using as a No. 1 tight end in PPR and a borderline starter in all other formats. The 49ers have allowed three touchdowns to tight ends in their past four games.

We'll see if Jonnu Smith (shoulder) is able to play Thursday night against the Falcons, but if he's out that should be more opportunities for Henry. Smith didn't play in Week 10 against Cleveland, and that worked out for Henry with a small bump in targets (four), catches (four), yards (37) and touchdowns (two). He's now scored a touchdown in six of his past seven games, with seven touchdowns over that span, and he should be considered a must-start option in all leagues.

Trautman feels like he's on the verge of a big game with at least six targets in three games in a row. He's topped out at five catches and 47 yards over that span, and he's still looking for his first touchdown this year. But in deeper leagues, you might want to speculate on Trautman, especially with a matchup at Philadelphia in Week 11 since the Eagles allow the most Fantasy points to opposing tight ends. Philadelphia has allowed four touchdowns to tight ends in the past five games.

But Seattle has improved against tight ends as the season has gone on, and the Seahawks haven't allowed a tight end to score since Week 5.

Now, if he doesn't score, your Fantasy production could be minimal because he's been at 55 yards or less in every game this year, including four outings with fewer than 30 yards. And the Buccaneers have allowed just one tight end to score since Week 5. Engram is only worth starting in deeper leagues.

Pitts has a tough matchup on his hands with the Patriots, who are No. 1 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing tight ends this year. Three tight ends have scored against New England, but they were Houston's Anthony Auclair, Dallas' Blake Jarwin and Cleveland's Austin Hooper. Schultz is the lone tight end with more than 29 receiving yards against the Patriots this year. Now, before you say that Pitts isn't a traditional tight end and will line up in different formations, you should expect this to be the player that Bill Belichick focuses on eliminating, no matter where he is. Pitts is more of a No. 2 Fantasy tight end this week in the majority of leagues.

Titans (vs. HOU): The Titans defense has been amazing of late, and the Titans DST has become a must-start Fantasy option in all leagues. The Titans DST has scored at least 13 Fantasy points in three of the past four games, and Tennessee has 14 sacks, five interceptions, four fumble recoveries and two DST scores over that span. And now Houston comes to town. In Tyrod Taylor's last game at Miami in Week 9, he was sacked five times with three interceptions. The Titans DST is my No. 1 unit this week.

Steelers (at LAC): With the potential of Pittsburgh being without T.J. Watt (hip/knee), Joe Haden (foot) and Minkah Fitzpatrick (COVID-19), it could be time to sit the Steelers DST. Now, the unit can still play well if those guys are out, but the Chargers still bring plenty of weapons and have scored at least 24 points in four of their past six games. Justin Herbert has only been sacked twice in his past two games, and he has just four interceptions in his past seven outings. If Watt, Haden and Fitzpatrick play, that changes things, but as of Wednesday you might want to find another DST for this week.

The Colts are sticking with Badgley this week with Rodrigo Blankenship (hip) still out, and he's coming off a solid game in Week 10 against Jacksonville with 11 Fantasy points on three made field goals and two PATs. But I would avoid him this week against Buffalo since the Bills are No. 6 in fewest Fantasy points allowed to opposing kickers. The Colts offense should struggle this week, and Badgley's scoring chances should be minimal.
