Rams' Robert Woods in a sling following Week 11 loss

Los Angeles Rams wide receiver Robert Woods hauled in eight passes for 81 yards as his team loss to the Minnesota Vikings 24-7 in Week 11.

What It Means:

Woods' 11 targets led the team. Unfortunately Woods injured his shoulder in this game and was spotted in a sling afterwards. It's unclear how severe the injury is, but his absence would certainly be felt in Week 12 versus the New Orleans Saints. Woods has posted at least 70 yards in four of his past five games.

Woods finished Week 11 with 12.1 FanDuel points and 4.84 Receiving Net Expected Points, per numberFire live.

Javorius Allen sees just 4 touches in Ravens' shutout win

Baltimore Ravens running back Javorius Allen gained 17 yards on 4 touches in Sunday's win over the Green Bay Packers.

What It Means:

Allen was untouched by Alex Collins and Danny Woodhead on Sunday as his days of being fantasy relevant are likely behind him this season.

Allen scored 2.2 FanDuel points in Week 11.

Charcandrick West gains 24 yards on 8 touches in Chiefs' loss

Kansas City Chiefs running back Charcandrick West gained 24 yards on 8 touches in Sunday's 12-9 OT loss to the New York Giants.

What It Means:

West rushed 4 times for 15 yards while adding 4 catches for 9 yards in an overall unproductive day for the backup running back.

West finished Week 11 with 4.4 FanDuel points.

Jalen Richard gains 28 yards in Raiders' loss to New England

Oakland Raiders running back Jalen Richard gained 28 total yards on 6 touches in Sunday's loss to the New England Patriots.

What It Means:

Richard, DeAndre Washington, and Jamize Olawale all split the work behind Marshawn Lynch in the Raiders' backfield with each back getting at least 5 touches. Richard carried the ball 4 times for 19 yards while adding 2 catches for 9 yards in a ho-hum outing.

Our models projected Richard for 6.7 FanDuel points, and he ended up with only 3.8 in Week 11.

Kenyan Drake a no-show in Dolphins' loss

Miami Dolphins running back Kenyan Drake gained just 14 yards in Sunday's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

What It Means:

Drake rushed 7 times for 4 yards while adding 1 catch for 10 yards in a disappointing show on Sunday. Fellow backfield mate Damien Willimas had the edge in workload, as well as production as he saw 11 touches in Week 11.

Drake was projected for 7.6 FanDuel points, and he was a bust with just 1.9 points on Sunday.

T.J. Yeldon doesn't do much in Jacksonville's Week 11 win

Jacksonville Jaguars running back T.J. Yeldon gained 20 yards on 6 touches in Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns.

What It Means:

With Leonard Fournette healthy, Yeldon rushed just 5 times for 15 yards while adding a 5-yard catch in the win. The back up back will not be a factor in fantasy unless Forunette misses any playing time.

Yeldon ended the day with 2.5 FanDuel points.

Chris Ivory gains 6 yards in Jaguars' win

Jacksonville Jaguars running back Chris Ivory rushed 6 times for 6 yards in Sunday's win over the Cleveland Browns.

What It Means:

Ivory wasn't much of a factor on Sunday as Leonard Fournette saw a heavy workload, rushing 28 times to Ivory's 6. The veteran back would need an injury to Fournette to become relevant in fantasy.

Ivory finished with just 0.6 Fanduel points on Sunday.

LeGarrette Blount sees 13 carries in Eagles' blowout win

Philadelphia Eagles running back LeGarrette Blount rushed 13 times for 57 yards in Sunday's 37-9 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

What It Means:

Blount took a backseat to Jay Ajayi in the first half as he saw just 3 carries. The bulk of Blount's workload (8 rushes) came late in the third and fourth quarter when the Eagles had the game well in hand. The running back was not targeted in the passing game on Sunday.

Blount was projected by our models for 8.0 FanDuel points and he finished with just 5.7 on Sunday.

Bears' Tarik Cohen scores his third career touchdown on Sunday

Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen totaled 59 yards and 1 touchdown on 13 touches in Sunday's 27-24 loss to the Detroit Lions.

What It Means:

After seeing just 8 touches in the last 3 games, the Bears got back to using their talented back with Cohen getting 9 carries while catching 4 passes. His 15-yard touchdown run was of the highlight reel variety as he caught serious hangtime as he dove into the end zone for his second rushing touchdown of his career.

Cohen was projected for just 6.0 FanDuel points and finished with an impressive 13.9 on Sunday.

Alex Collins sees 24 touches in Ravens' Week 11 win

Baltimore Ravens running back Alex Collins took 24 touches for 73 yards and a touchdown in Week 11.

What It Means:

Collins rushed 20 times for just 49 yards (2.5 yards per carry) while adding 4 catches for 22 yards as he dominated the backfield touches on Sunday. Danny Woodhead, in his first game off the IR, was the next closest with only 6 touches. Collins found paydirt on a three-yard run late in the fourth quarter.

Collins ended up as the 11th-best fantasy back in Week 11, so far, with 15.1 FanDuel points on Sunday.

Lions' Ameer Abdullah totals just 35 yards but scores in Week 11

Detroit Lions running back Ameer Abdullah gained 35 total yards with 1 receiving touchdown in Sunday's win over the Chicago Bears.

What It Means:

Abdullah couldn't get anything going against tan underrated Bears' defense, averaging just 2.0 yards per carry on Sunday. He saved his fantasy day with a two-yard touchdown reception where he got wide open thanks to an excellent play design. Week 12 won't get much easier as the Lions face the Minnesota Vikings on Thanksgiving.

Abdullah finished with 10.5 FanDuel points, outperforming numberFire's projections of 8.3 points.

Duke Johnson scores Browns' lone touchdown in Week 11 loss

Cleveland Browns running back Duke Johnson gained 66 total yards with 1 touchdown in Sunday's 19-7 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

What It Means:

Johnson saw just 2 carries, which he took for 10 yards, as he earned his value through the air. The back caught 4 passes off 6 targets, reeling in a 27-yard touchdown for the Browns only points of the day.

Johnson finished with 14.6 FanDuel points, making him a top-15 fantasy running back, so far in Week 11.

Isaiah Crowell fails to break loose, gains only 18 yards in Browns' loss

Cleveland Browns running back Isaiah Crowell rushed 11 times for 18 yards in Sunday's loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars.

What It Means:

Crowell's longest run went for just 5 yards as he posted a disappointing 1.6 yards per rush against the Jaguars. On a positive note, the running back remained the leader in the backfield out touching Duke John 11 to 6. He will try to get moving again in Week 12 versus the Cincinnati Bengals.

Crowell was projected for 9.3 FanDuel points and was a bust with only 1.8 on Sunday.

Damien Williams rips off a nice 69-yard run in Dolphins' loss

Miami Dolphins running back Damien Williams totaled 102 yards on 11 touches in Sunday's loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

What It Means:

Williams' performance was essentially two plays, a 69-yard run, and a 24-yard reception. The running back gained just 9 yards on his other 9 touches for a rather disappointing game, if not for the two big plays. Williams finished with 10 rushes compared to Kenyan Drake's 7 as the two backs continued to split the Dolphins' workload.

Williams ended up with 10.7 FanDuel points after being projected for 9.3 points by our algorithms.

Jay Ajayi totals 101 yards in Eagles' decisive Week 11 win

Philadelphia Eagles running back Jay Ajayi totaled 101 yards on just 8 touches in Sunday's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

What It Means:

Ajayi's night was highlighted by a 71-yard run in the third quarter that led to an 11-yard Torrey Smith touchdown catch that put the Eagles up by 14 points. Ajayi saw just one touch the rest of the game as the game was comfortably in hand.

Ajayi was projected for 8.8 FanDuel points and finished with 10.6 points on Sunday.

Dak Prescott tosses 3 picks as Cowboys get blown out in Week 11

Dallas Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott threw for 145 yards and 3 interceptions in Sunday night's 37-9 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles.

What It Means:

Prescott had one of his worst days as a pro as he threw a career-high 3 interceptions. To put that into perspective, the second-year quarterback had thrown just 4 picks in his first 17 games or 498 pass attempts. He finished without a touchdown for the second time this season as he added only 10 yards rushing to an overwhelmingly disappointing day.

Prescott finished with just 1.8 FanDuel points after being expected to score 21.9 points on Sunday night.

Zach Ertz pulls in just 2 catches in the Eagles' win over the Cowboys

Philadelphia Eagles tight end Zach Ertz caught 2 passes for 8 yards in Sunday's 37-9 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

What It Means:

Ertz was targeted 5 times but was able to bring in just 40% of those looks as he posted his lowest yardage numbers since the 2014 season. The tight end will look to get back on track when the Eagles face the Chicago Bears in Week 12.

Ertz was projected for 12.7 FanDuel points, and he disappointed those who played him with just 1.8 points on Sunday.

Dez Bryant targeted 14 times as Cowboys lose on Sunday Night Football

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Dez Bryant totaled 63 yards on eight receptions as his team fell to the Philadelphia Eagles 37-9 in Week 11 on Sunday Night Football.

What It Means:

Bryant saw a whopping 14 targets tonight, but once again finished with a lackluster fantasy performance. He has now failed to score in five straight games, and has yet to post more than 98 yards in a single outing. Dallas will play host to the Los Angeles Chargers on Thanksgiving Day in Week 12.

Bryant finished Week 11 with 10.3 FanDuel points.

Alfred Morris totals 91 yards in Cowboys' Week 11 loss

Dallas Cowboys running back Alfred Morris rushed 17 times for 91 yards in his team's 37-9 Week 11 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday Night Football.

What It Means:

Morris out carried Rod Smith 18 to 7, once again operating as the clear lead back. However, he once again fell victim to negative game script. The Dallas offense has looked last the past two weeks. Morris will remain a must start fantasy play against the Los Angeles Chargers on Thanksgiving Day in Week 12.

Morris finished Week 11 with 9.1 FanDuel points.

Alshon Jeffery puts up 4/67/1 line as Eagles rally to dominant win

Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery caught caught 4-of-6 passes for 67 yards and 1 touchdown in Sunday's 37-9 win over the Dallas Cowboys.

What It Means:

Jeffery's touchdown came on a 17-yard pass on fourth down in the final quarter and he added a two-point conversion reception on the Eagles previous score, due to Jake Elliott exiting the game early with a head injury.

numberFire's models projected Jeffery for 12.3 FanDuel points and he came away with 14.7 in Week 11.

Carson Wentz throws for 2 touchdowns in Eagles' dominant win

Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz completed 14-of-27 passes for 168 yards and 2 touchdowns in Sunday night's win over the Dallas Cowboys.

What It Means:

Wentz did not light up the stat sheet in terms of passing yards, but connected with Torrey Smith and Alshon Jeffery for 2 redzone touchdowns in the second half. The second touchdown pass happened on fourth down, when the Eagles went for it due to Jake Elliott being out for the game. Wentz also completed a two-point conversion pass following his first touchdown for that same reason.

numberFire's models projected Wentz for 20.6 FanDuel points and he finished with 15.6 on Sunday night.

Brock Osweiler continues to struggle as Broncos fall to Bengals in Week 11

Denver Broncos quarterback Brock Osweiler completed 23-of-42 passes for 254 yards and 1 touchdown, with 1 interception in Sunday's 20-17 loss to the Cincinnati Bengals.

What It Means:

Osweiler was largely ineffective before finding Demaryius Thomas for a 17-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter. He has now thrown just 3 touchdowns to go with 4 interceptions in his three starts this season.

numberFire's models projected Osweiler for 11.3 FanDuel points and he finished with 15.6 on Sunday.

Houston Texans quarterback Tom Savage completed 22-of-32 passes for 230 yards and 2 touchdowns with 1 interception in Sunday's 31-21 win over the Arizona Cardinals.

What It Means:

Savage got the scoring started with a 7-yard touchdown pass to Lamar Miller in the first quarter, before connecting with DeAndre Hopkins for a 28-yard touchdown pass in the third. Unfortunately he also lost a fumble on a sack, giving him 3 total turnovers on the day.

numberFire's models projected Savage for 12.6 FanDuel points and he finished with 14.5 in Week 11.

Brett Hundley throws 3 picks as Packers get Shutout on Sunday

Green Bay Packers quarterback Brett Hundley completed 21-of-36 passes for 239 yards and 3 interceptions in Sunday's 23-0 loss to the Baltimore Ravens.

What It Means:

Hundley was under constant pressure, even getting sacked 6 times, but that doesn't make up for his awful interceptions. Last weeks' victory remains his only win since taking over as the Packers starter, but it appears that Green Bay will stick with him.

numberFire's models projected Hundley for 12.4 FanDuel points and he put up just 6.5 in Week 11.

Danny Amendola totals 66 yards and a score as Patriots win

New England Patriots slot receiver Danny Amendola caught eight passes for 66 yards and a touchdown in his team's 33-8 Week 11 win over the Oakland Raiders.

What It Means:

Amendola saw nine targets today with Chris Hogan once again sidelined. It's a major bump in usage from a week ago, and Amendola was able to cap off the day with a five-yard touchdown in the second quarter. Amendola will be on the low end flex radar for as long as Hogan is out. New England draws the Miami Dolphins in Week 12.

Amendola totaled 16.6 FanDuel points in Week 11 and registered 8.31 Receiving Net Expected Points, per numberFire live.
