Arizona Cardinals

DeAndre Hopkins is one of just 11 players with at least four 18-point games.

Hopkins topped this completely arbitrary number again in Week 11 despite taking some time off at the end of a blowout. He has reached 18 PPR points in all but one of his five games this year. For reference, no one else with as many big performances has appeared in fewer than eight games this year. 

Atlanta Falcons

Cordarrelle Patterson hasn't played on half of the Falcons' snaps since Week 3.

Patterson went down with a knee injury in Week 4 but has been back for three games. His 49 percent snap share in Week 11 is his highest mark since suffering the injury. Patterson flashed his elite upside again versus the Bears with a kick-return touchdown, but he is stuck in a low-ceiling committee on offense. 

Baltimore Ravens

Lamar Jackson is averaging eight fewer fantasy points when Rashod Bateman isn't active.

The Ravens lost Bateman to a foot injury a few weeks ago. Jackson has played three games without his top receiver so far. He is posting 18.5 points per game in those contests. That number was at 25.6 points per game with Bateman. His touchdown rate plummets to 3.5 percent and his yards per attempt hits six without the speedy sophomore. 

Buffalo Bills

James Cook led the NFL with three carries of 15+ yards.

Cook tied Tony Pollard in 15-yard runs. Both Cook and Singletary shredded the Browns. The duo combined for seven carries of at least ten yards. Cook tied his career-high in carries (11) and set a new high in yards (86).

Carolina Panthers

Terrace Marshall led all receivers in air yards share (70 percent).

Only five receivers even cleared a 50 percent air yards share, so seeing 70 percent of Baker Mayfield's intended yards is an absurd mark. Marshall led the Panthers with six targets and combined that with an 18 aDOT, giving him a gaudy cut of the air yards. Marshall's worst game of the past four weeks has been 43 yards.

Chicago Bears

David Montgomery tied his season-high in snap share (80 percent).

Week 11 was Montgomery's first game without Khalil Herbert in the lineup. He earned a 21 percent target share and 74 percent of the Bears' running back carries. The offense is in flux with Justin Fields banged up, but Montgomery's role is elite. 

Cincinnati Bengals

Samaje Perine out-touched Trayveon Williams 15-2.

Perine took over the Cincinnati backfield after Joe Mixon left Week 11 with a concussion. Mixon could return for Week 12, but there is a chance Perine is stepping into a massive role for a game. He was targeted four times and played on 70 percent of the Bengals' snaps.

Cleveland Browns

Nick Chubb had his worst rushing game (19 yards) since Week 5 of 2018.

The Browns' offense has been capped at 23 points in all but one of their previous five games. In the four games they have struggled, Chubb has been held under 100 rushing yards four times. Chubb still has two scores in those games and has shown some life as a receiver, but Cleveland's offensive woes are hitting him hard.

Dallas Cowboys

Tony Pollard is the only running back ranked top-10 in PFF's rushing and receiving grades.

Christian McCaffrey is ranked 11th in rushing grade, meaning he could join Pollard in the top 10 of both ranks any week. Pollard equaled Ezekiel Elliott in carries at 15 each but nearly doubled up the lumbering back in rushing yards, going for 80 to Zeke's 42. Most importantly, Pollard caught six passes for 109 yards and a pair of scores.

Denver Broncos

Latavius Murray saw 63 percent of the Broncos' carries.

Chase Edmonds was carted off with an ankle injury in Week 11 and Melvin Gordon was cut after the game. Gordon put the ball on the ground for the fifth time this season in his final appearance with the Broncos. Down multiple backs, Murray could be a three-down runner going forward.

Detroit Lions

Amon-Ra St. Brown has not scored a touchdown since Week 2. 

On the one hand, St. Brown ranks 18th among receivers in total receptions over that stretch. That is despite missing one game with an injury and having his bye in Week 6. Scoring no touchdowns in that role looks like an outlier. On the other hand, St. Brown has zero looks in the end zone and four red zone targets in that stretch of games.

Green Bay Packers

Christian Watson has five touchdowns on his past 12 targets.

Watson will stop scoring at this hilarious clip, but his role is teeming with fantasy value. In the past two weeks, he has four red zone targets, three end zone targets, and an 18.2 aDOT. Watson may have flipped Allen Lazard in the ranks. 

Houston Texans

The Texans earned five yards in the first half.

This, somehow, wasn't even the worst half of football played on Sunday. The Jets wear that crown after picking up just two yards in the second half of their game. Dameon Pierce totaled 17 yards from scrimmage and Brandin Cooks paced the Houston FLEX players with a measly 10 PPR points. There's nothing wrong with benching everyone on this team until further notice. 

Indianapolis Colts

Jonathan Taylor's snap share fell to 75 percent.

That's almost exactly where his snap share sat with Nyheim Hines in the lineup. Deon Jackson was active but likely not at full health in Week 10 and Taylor logged a 96 percent snap share. Jackson was seemingly back to full strength for Week 11 when he earned a 20 percent snap share and picked up four targets.

Kansas City Chiefs

Travis Kelce tied his career-high in touchdowns receptions (11) in a season.

Kelce has seven games to score once and get his best season by touchdowns outright. He is currently averaging 22.3 PPR points per game. If it holds, that will be the record for a tight end by nearly 1.5 points per game. 

Las Vegas Raiders

Josh Jacobs was the only running back to see every one of his team's carries.

Jacobs rushed 24 times for 109 yards while adding three catches for 51 yards through the air. Rookie Zamir White was a healthy scratch in Week 11. Jacobs' fantasy stats were slumping for a few weeks, and he didn't blow up in Week 11, but his role was incredible. The only thing holding him back from being a top-five fantasy option is his mid-tier offense. 

Los Angeles Chargers

Justin Herbert had his second-highest target depth (9.1 yards) of the season.

Herbert last averaged more than nine air yards per attempt in Week 3. He only had Mike Williams for a handful of plays in Week 11, but he did get Keenan Allen back on the field on roughly a third of LA's snaps. The bulk of his deep throws surprisingly went to Josh Palmer, but having Allen on the field to draw attention certainly helped make Herbert like the elite quarterback he was in 2021.

Los Angeles Rams

Bryce Perkins scrambled on 19 percent of his dropbacks.

For reference, Lamar Jackson has scrambled on six percent of his dropbacks this year. The Rams' horrific line played a massive role in Perkins running for his life, but that won't change if he is under center in Week 12. Stafford cleared concussion protocol ahead of Week 11 but suffered another one mid-game last week. He looks like a long-shot to play this week. 

Minnesota Vikings

Kirk Cousins ranked last in the league in EPA per dropback (-.48).

Cousins managed to be the worst quarterback by EPA per play on a Sunday that featured Zach Wilson throwing the football. He was sacked seven times, lost a fumble, and threw for 105 yards. That was before hitting the bench for the final minutes of the game.

New England Patriots

Rhamondre Stevenson out-touched Damien Harris 21-10.

Stevenson secured a 15-8 lead in carries despite Harris dominating him in efficiency. Harris averaged 8.1 yards per carry while Stevenson sat at a putrid 1.7 yards per attempt. Stevenson earning the bulk of the touches in a game that saw him struggle on the ground is a tremendous sign for his role going forward. 

New Orleans Saints

Chris Olave earned a 22 percent target share and a 38 percent air yards share.

Jarvis Landry returned to the lineup in Week 10 and gave Olave drafters a scare. The rookie earned just a 19 percent target share and his cut of the air yards plummeted to 25 percent. That appears to be the outlier as Olave was back to his usual ways in Week 11, posting a 5/102/1 line.

New York Giants

Darius Slayton has a 22 percent target share since Week 7.

He also has a 34 percent air yards share since Week 7. With Wan'Dale Robinson done for the year because of a torn ACL, Slayton's target share is only going up from here. Isaiah Hodgins, Richie James, and Kenny Golladay will vie for targets behind Slayton. 

New York Jets

Zach Wilson has multiple touchdown passes in one game this season.

Bailey Zappe, Cooper Rush, and Teddy Bridgewater are among the quarterbacks with as many multi-score games this year. Wilson also has just one game over 252 passing yards. With Elijah Moore and Denzel Mims both seeing more targets than Garrett Wilson in Week 11, no pass-catchers on this team can be played.

Philadelphia Eagles

Jalen Hurts has three turnovers in his past three games.

Entering Week 8, with seven games under his belt, Hurts had five giveaways. He hasn't become a turnover machine in the past three games, but playing as perfectly as he was early in the year was unsustainable. 

Pittsburgh Steelers

Najee Harris has 40 carries for 189 yards in the past two weeks. 

Jaylen Warren left Week 11 with a hamstring injury but reports from Sunday morning already had the Steelers leaning on Harris as a runner. The rumors were true and Harris rushed 20 times for 90 yards. It was 20-carry game in a row. 

San Francisco 49ers

Christian McCaffrey has seen 33 percent of the 49ers' red zone carries since being traded.

The good news for CMC is that he has earned 4-of-7 attempts inside the five. He also played a limited role in his first week with the team but has been more involved since. McCaffrey has 22 targets over the past three weeks. It's hard to rank CMC as a top-three back, though his role in the passing game locks him in as an RB1. 

Tennessee Titans

Treylon Burks saw 41 percent of the Titans' air yards.

His outstanding air yards share wasn't the product of a few long shots either. He simply dominated the passing game looks, clocking in at a 30 percent target share. Burks capitalized on the role for seven catches and 111 yards. 

Washington Commanders

Antonio Gibson out-carried Brian Robinson for the first time this year.

Gibson rushed 18 times for 72 yards while Robinson was held to 57 yards on 15 carries. Gibson also picked up 31 yards on three receptions. He paced the backfield with a 68 percent snap share. Robinson had out-carried Gibson in every game he was active for up until Week 11. Ron Rivera and company may have finally seen the light with Gibson.
