1:00 p.m. ET | CBS
Matchup rating: 72.0 | Spread:: BAL -5 (49.5)
What to look out for: Can the Ravens’ Run Defense stop the Titans from running back to Derrick Henry? Henry ran 195 yards against Baltimore in last season’s playoffs and faces a quick defense that Brandon Williams is unlikely to face in the nose. In the Ravens’ last seven games without Williams, they have allowed an average of 165.1 yards of rushing. – Jamison Hensley
Courageous prediction: Henry will run more than 150 yards and score two touchdowns. The titans know what it takes to get into a rhythm: to give Henry the soccer ball. This is one of those times when they must rely on Henry to set the tone and lead the team to a much-needed victory. – Turron Davenport
Stat of knowing: Baltimore quarterback Lamar Jackson completes only 38.8% of his passes that are more than 15 yards behind the field this season. This is the 26th of 33 qualified quarterbacks in the NFL. Last weekend against New England Jackson was 1: 6 (18 yards) on such throws.
Injuries: Titans | Ravens
What you should know for the imagination: The Titans failed to get more than 20 points in three from wide receiver A.J. Brown’s seven games this season. In these cases, Brown has not yet reached 40 yards and averages just 8.1 Fantasy Points per game. See week 11 ranking.
Betting nugget: When quarterback Ryan Tannehill starts regular season games for Tennessee, the overs will be 16-3, including 7-2 this season. Continue reading.
Davenport’s Choice: Titans 24, Ravens 20
Hensley’s choice: Titans 28, Ravens 24
FPI prediction: BAL 68.4% (average 6.4 points)

1:00 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 70.7 | Spread:: NO-5 (51)
What to look out for: Taysom Hill will reportedly make his debut as the starting QB in the NFL, with Drew Brees sidelined due to broken ribs and a lung injury. The choice of the Saints for Hill is certainly surprising considering that Jameis Winston played most of the second half last week and is far more experienced. But the Saints and coach Sean Payton have never made a secret of the fact that Hill could be a successful NFL quarterback despite being a run-first player who has only attempted 20 career passes, including the playoffs. That makes this one of the NFL’s most intriguing matches of the week as New Orleans seeks to keep its winning streak alive in six games against its greatest rival. – Mike Triplet
Courageous prediction: Not only will Hill throw his first career NFL touchdown on Sunday – he’ll throw multiple TD passes. Mostly used in running situations, Hill has only attempted 18 passes in his NFL career. But Payton will be calling on games to show that Hill can be effective with his arm too. – Mike Wells
Stat of knowing: The Falcons are under interim coach Raheem Morris after a 0-5 start under Dan Quinn 3-1. They have the third-best offensive efficiency (78.8) in the NFL since week 6 and are only behind the Chiefs (89.8 ) and Buccaneers (79.0). For those first five weeks they were 21st (59.2).
Injuries: Hawks | Saints
What you should know for the imagination: Atlanta QB Matt Ryan will try to create some fantasy consistency with a healthy squad. This season, Ryan has as many placements as a top 8 quarterback as weeks outside the top 20 (three apiece). See week 11 ranking.
Betting nugget: Atlanta is 7-1 against the Spread (ATS) in its last eight street games. Continue reading.
Wells’ choice: Saints 28, falcons 25
Triplet choice: Saints 26, falcons 20
FPI prediction: NO, 73.5% (average 8.4 points)

1:00 p.m. ET | CBS
Matchup rating: 44.3 | Spread:: NE -2.5 (48.5)
What to look out for: Patriots cornerback JC Jackson has intercepted a pass in five consecutive games, the longest run since Reggie Nelson in 2015. According to research by ESPN Stats & Information, if Jackson intercepts a pass on Sunday, he would be the longest run since AFL achieve 1970 -NFL merger, most recently by Brian Russell in 2003. While Texas quarterback Deshaun Watson has thrown five interceptions this season, he has not thrown one since week five. – Sarah Barshop
Courageous prediction: New England running back Damien Harris will rush for 200 yards against the NFL’s 32nd rank defense. The Texans allow an average of 167.4 rushing yards per game, meaning quarterback Cam Newton and a Patriots offense turned into a power running machine have a chance to feast. – Mike Reiss
Stat of knowing: The Patriots have an offensive efficiency of 75.7 for the past three weeks, finishing fourth in the NFL at that time. This is a huge improvement over the team’s offensive efficiency of 44.1 in the first seven weeks (27th). Newton, who is aiming for his first winning streak in three games as starting quarterback since weeks 7 through 9 of 2018, has a completion percentage of 76.9% in the last two games – topping the league at that time.
Injuries: Patriots | Texans
What you should know for the imagination: Complaining about the backcourt of patriots in fantasy must stop. Harris accounted for 74% of RB rushing yards in New England last month and has faced the worst run defense imaginable when it comes to stopping running backs. See week 11 ranking.
Betting nugget: Houston is 2-7 ATS this season, tied to the Jets for the second worst ATS brand in the NFL. Continue reading.
Reiss’ choice: Patriots 24, Texans 20
Barshop’s selection: Texans 24, Patriots 20
FPI prediction: NE 51.3% (average 0.5 points)

1:00 p.m. ET | CBS
Matchup rating: 39.7 | Spread:: PIT -10.5 (46)
What to look out for: Jaguar’s rookie quarterback Jake Luton makes his third start and faces the best pass in the league. The Steelers lead the NFL with 36 sacks (and finish second with 11 interceptions), led by T.J. Watt and Bud Dupree. If the jaguars will be able to stay close and possibly cause a stir, it will rely heavily on offensive tackles with Cam Robinson and Jawaan Taylor that keep Watt and Dupree away from Luton and give him plenty of time to do the To get the ball out. – Mike DiRocco
Courageous prediction: The Steelers will hold rookie running James Robinson back 50 yards or less. Robinson has received high praise from the Steelers coaches and players who led to this matchup – and for good reason. He’s averaged 109 yards per game for the last three games, but the Steelers seem back to near full strength in run defense, with Tyson Alualu (knee) returning a week ago and Mike Hilton (shoulder) tending to play this week . Without the pair, the Steelers’ run defense against the Cowboys and Ravens was unfortunate, but it will be motivated to prove it is an elite unit if it’s healthy. – Brooke Pryor
Stat of knowing: If the 9-0 Steelers and 1-8 Jaguars meet on Sunday, it will be the sixth largest difference in win percentages at week 10 or later in the Super Bowl era (excluding short-strike seasons). The Jaguars have allowed at least 24 points in eight consecutive games this season. This is the longest streak of more than 24 points in franchise history. The Steelers, on the other hand, have scored more than 24 goals in all nine games this season, which for most in the NFL is linked to the Saints.
Injuries: Steelers | Jaguars
What you should know for the imagination: Robinson has only got 3 yards on seven goals in the past two weeks after posting more than 7 yards per goal earlier this season. A return to eventing is almost imperative this weekend against the NFL’s best defense in terms of running back the fantasy points allowed. See week 11 ranking.
Betting nugget: Pittsburgh is 1-10 ATS as a double-digit street favorite under coach Mike Tomlin with four direct losses. Continue reading.
Pryor’s Choice: Steelers 35, Jaguars 17
DiRocco’s choice: Steelers 31, Jaguars 14

1:00 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 37.1 | Spread:: CLE -3 (47.5)
What to look out for: Can Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz, who has performed as many interceptions as touchdowns (12) this season, get anything going? He has to take care of the ball to play another bad weather game in Cleveland. – Jake Trotter
Courageous prediction: The Browns score a defensive touchdown. Outside of the game against the Giants last weekend, Wentz gave a lot with football and turned it around 16 times. Cleveland ranks fourth with 15 food stalls and will bring one into the house on Sunday. – Tim McManus
Stat of knowing: Cleveland quarterback Baker Mayfield has failed touchdowns in either of his last two games. This is his longest run without a TD since playing three games without a TD at Texas Tech in 2013. In the last two games he has fewer than 150 passes for the longest run of his career (NFL and college).
Injuries: Eagle | Browns
What you should know for the imagination: Both Kareem Hunt and Nick Chubb were in three of their four games together this season for Cleveland Top 22 second rounds. See week 11 ranking.
Betting nugget: The Browns have failed in any of their last four games. Continue reading.
McManus’ choice: Browns 30, Eagles 20
Trotter’s choice: Browns 12, Eagles 9

1:00 p.m. ET | CBS
Matchup rating: 20.9 | Spread:: WSH-1 (46.5)
What to look out for: Washington’s offense has come to life recently, reaching more than 400 yards in consecutive games. It hasn’t topped that total in three consecutive games since weeks 15-17 of the 2015 season, but the Bengals allow 398.7 yards per game. It will be interesting to see how well Washington runs the ball. It ranks 30th in rushing yards per game and 28th in yards per carry, but Cincinnati ranks 27th in yards per game and 31st in yards per carry. – John Keim
Courageous prediction: Bengal quarterback Joe Burrow will fit for more than 300 yards. Although it doesn’t look brave at first glance, Washington goes into the game on Sunday with the best pass defense in the NFL. It will be a good test for Burrow, who had a tough game against the Steelers in week 10. – Ben baby
Stat of knowing: Terry McLaurin, the recipient in Washington, has quietly received at least seven receptions in four consecutive games, the longest streak by any Washington player in the past 70 seasons, and is linked to Davante Adams of Green Bay for the longest active streak in the NFL.
Injuries: Bengals | Washington
What you should know for the imagination: Washington runs back J.D. McKissic has averaged 6.2 catches per game in their last six games, including 16 hits on 29 goals in the two games, mostly led by QB Alex Smith. See week 11 ranking.
Betting nugget: Cincinnati have won 0-17-1 in their last 18 street games – but 11-7 ATS in those games. Continue reading.
Baby’s Choice: Bengals 27, Washington 24
Germ choice: Washington 23, Bengals 21

Washington’s Rivera says QB Smith has proven he’s back.
1:00 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 14.5 | Spread:: DET -2.5 (48)
What to look out for: Will either team put enough pressure on the quarterback to disturb the offense of the other, especially the Lions, since there is a question of who Carolina could start with at the quarterback? Even when Teddy Bridgewater is playing, his sprained knee can limit his range of motion. Neither team was very good at making sacks. The Panthers rank 27th in the league at 11 and the Lions rank 25th at 13. – David Newton
Courageous prediction: Lions running back Adrian Peterson have 75 yards of rushing and a touchdown in a vintage outing against a Carolina Run Defense that allows 124.5 yards per game and 4.77 yards per carry. With D’Andre Swift possibly missing him, Peterson will get help with the work from Kerryon Johnson and Jamal Agnew. – Michael Rothstein
Stat of knowing: Detroit wide receiver Marvin Jones has received a TD in three consecutive games representing the longest run of his career (weeks 6-8 of 2013). He’s fresh from an eight catch 96 yard reception day against Washington in week 10.
Injuries: Lions | Panther
What you should know for the imagination: No defense allows more yards per game to run back than the Lions (53.7), and panthers running back, Mike Davis has achieved 87% of his goals this season. Fun fact: there’s never been a game where multiple Davis targets fall to the ground this season. See week 11 ranking.
Betting nugget: Carolina is at home at 1-4 ATS this season. Continue reading.
Rothstein’s choice: Lions 27, panthers 23
Newton’s choice: Lions 30, panthers 23
FPI prediction: CAR 51.7% (average 0.6 points)
Matchup must be read: Lions need to keep giving Swift the ball … As frustration sets in for young panthers, Thompson speaks … Griffen, Peterson over wrestling matches … McCaffrey likely out, Bridgewater questionable
Mike Clay explains that given a cheap matchup against the Lions, this is a good opportunity for fantasy managers to use DJ Moore in their lineups.
4:05 p.m. ET | CBS
Matchup rating: 31.1 | Spread:: MIA -3 (45.5)
What to look out for: How often do the Broncos flip the ball? You have lost five fumbles and thrown 16 interceptions in the league. The Dolphins rank fourth in the league on takeaway and have particularly confused the young quarterbacks they have faced. Keep an eye on the Broncos’ offense in the Triple Receiver Set as all 16 interceptions are from this season. – Jeff Legwold
Courageous prediction: The dolphins will produce five or more sacks and multiple sales against the offense of the Broncos. Miami’s multiple defenses have foiled offenses and quarterbacks all season, but only one game with more than five sacks (San Francisco). That changes this weekend, whether it’s a limited drew lock (who threw four interceptions last Sunday) or a backup in the center as the Dolphins defenses continue their ball-snapping ways, making it a tough one for Denver Day makes. – Cameron Wolfe
Stat of knowing: Miami’s Tua Tagovailoa is aiming to become the fifth AFC quarterback to win his first four career starts in the last 30 years (Drew Brees in 2002, Ben Roethlisberger in 2004, Trevor Siemian in 2016, and Patrick Mahomes in 2017- 18). He’s also already joined Damon Huard as the only Dolphins QB to win his first three career starts and would be the first Dolphin to win his top four. Tagovailoa has five touchdowns and zero interceptions from three starts and joins Carson Wentz as the only rookie quarterbacks to win their first three starts and not throw picks in the Super Bowl era (since 1966). No rookie QB has achieved this feat in their first four starts during this time.
Injuries: Dolphins | Broncos
What you should know for the imagination: Week 4 was the last time Melvin Gordon had a touch that gained more than 11 yards. This was also the last time the rewinding Denver was in the top 20 for a week. The naming worth and recognition far outweighs what it gives your fantasy roster. See week 11 ranking.
Betting nugget: Miami is 7-2 ATS this season, tied with Pittsburgh for the best ATS brand in the NFL. Continue reading.
Wolfe’s choice: Dolphins 27, Broncos 16
Legwold’s choice: Dolphins 23, Broncos 17
FPI prediction: MIA 53.2% (average 1.1 points)
Matchup must be read: How the over-performing dolphins can win the AFC East … Why can’t the Broncos running game take hold? … Dolphins forego RB Howard when they “say goodbye” … Broncos “have signed up” to Lock, but want him to “fight his way through” … Broncos’ extreme makeover is their version of refueling for Tua
4:05 p.m. ET | CBS
Matchup rating: 18.8 | Spread:: LAC -9.5 (46)
What to look out for: The Jets, which see 35-year-old Joe Flacco in place of an injured Sam Darnold, have been 6-0 in games started by QBs other than Darnold (7-12 with Darnold) since the start of last season. The Chargers, meanwhile, will try to avoid their first 2-8 start since 2015. The quarterback game shouldn’t be a problem for her, however, as Justin Herbert has thrown multiple TDs in six consecutive games – the longest streak by a rookie in NFL history, according to the Elias Sports Bureau study – and is the only rookie in in Chargers history of at least four 300-yard passes in a season. The Jets must find a way to contain Herbert’s big arm if they are to step into the profit column this weekend. – Shelley Smith
Courageous prediction: Herbert will set a career high for mileage overtaking, which means he will be driving north of 347 that day. The Jets’ pass defense is terrible and there is a good chance it will break in a new set of cornerbacks. CB1 Pierre Desir was cut this week and CB2 Bless Austin suffered a neck injury. The Jets could start three newbies in secondary school. Do you have it, Justin. – Rich Cimini
Stat of knowing: All of the Chargers’ seven losses that season were one-point games. According to research by the Elias Sports Bureau (2015 Ravens, 1983 Buccaneers, and 1944 Brooklyn Tigers), this is highest in a team’s first nine games in NFL history.
Injuries: Jets | Charger
What you should know for the imagination: Hunter Henry has seen at least six goals in four of his last five games, and while production has been sporadic, don’t forget that as the top 10 player per game, he’s in the position among the healthy options. See week 11 ranking.
Betting nugget: Six games in a row in Los Angeles have exceeded the total, with Herbert starting 6-2. Continue reading.
Cimini’s choice: Chargers 31, Jets 14
Smith’s choice: Chargers 17, jets 7

4:25 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 72.7 | Spread:: IND -2.5 (51)
What to look out for: Get ready for the # 1 Colts defense and the # 6 Packers offense. Colts trainer Frank Reich said Green Bay will be the toughest test of the season for his defense yet, but the Colts will also be the second top -3 defense that the Packers have faced this season. Number 3 in total defense in the NFL, Tampa Bay held Green Bay at 201 yards, sacking Aaron Rodgers five times, forcing two turnovers, and dropping only 10 points to the Packers earlier this season. – Mike Wells
Courageous prediction: Indianapolis QB Philip Rivers will surpass Rodgers of Green Bay. Rivers was efficient against the Packers’ defense last season, and the Colts’ elite defense will get Rodgers fit just like the Bucs’ D in Tampa earlier this season. – Rob Demovsky
Stat of knowing: Rodgers leads the NFL with a total QBR of 84.8 this season and has three games of more than 300 yards and more than four passing TDs (tied to Patrick Mahomes for most of those games). Oh, and he’s 4-0 averaging 296.5 passes per game with nine passes in his last four indoor stadium games going back to last season.
Injuries: Packer | Colts
What you should know for the imagination: You may have missed Marquez Valdes-Scantling’s big week 10, but be careful. Yes, the Packers wide receiver has three games over 19 fantasy points this season, but it also has three games under 3.5 and faces the seventh best defense against fantasy WRs. See week 11 ranking.
Betting nugget: Under coach Matt LaFleur Green Bay is 5-1 and ATS as an underdog (regular season). Continue reading.
Demovsky’s choice: Colts 27, Packers 23
Wells’ choice: Colts 30, Packers 24
FPI prediction: GB, 54.1% (average 1.4 points)

4:25 p.m. ET | Fox
Matchup rating: 34.1 | Spread:: MIN -7 (47.5)
What to look out for: How will the Vikings handle Dalvin Cook’s workload? One might expect Minnesota to rely heavily on its receding star as it faces a defense in Dallas that boasts the second most rushing yards per game. But there is one caveat, and it has to do with getting Cook for teams that will be more difficult to beat. If at any point the Vikings have a dominant lead, will we see more support from Alexander Mattison, or maybe more from quarterback Kirk Cousins, radiating it to rookie receiver Justin Jefferson? After all, Minnesota averages 424.5 meters per game at home, while Dallas’ secondary school gives opposing QBs a pass rating of 103.1. This should be a great day for cousins and their recipients. – Courtney Cronin
Courageous prediction: Dallas Runs Back Ezekiel Elliott will have his first 100-yard game of the season. He was limited to 47 yards on 20 runs by Minnesota last season, and after allowing a 100-yard rusher in each of the first two games, the Vikings have failed a runner in the last seven competitions more than 75 yards allowed on the ground. With the return of Quaterback Andy Dalton, the Cowboys want more balance on offense, which should help Elliott find a running space. – Todd Archer
Stat of knowing: Cousins has a minimum of 80.0 QBR in their last three games. Brett Favre (2009) is the only Viking quarterback to have an overall QBR of 80.0 or better in four consecutive starts since the metric was introduced in 2006. Jefferson helped him out, whose four games with more than 100 receiving yards are most a Viking freshman since Hall of Famer Randy Moss in 1998.
Injuries: Cowboys | Vikings
What you should know for the imagination: In Dalton’s only game that season (Week 6 against Arizona), Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb and Elliott saw double-digit goals. Cooper was the trio’s fantasy producer, racking up 20.9 fantasy points en route to the WR7 finish. See week 11 ranking.
Betting nugget: Dallas is 1-8 ATS this season, the worst coverage percentage in the NFL. Continue reading.
Archers selection: Vikings 33, Cowboys 20

Matchup-Bewertung: 79,8 | Ausbreitung:: KC -6,5 (56,5)
Worauf Sie achten sollten: Wer wird für die Raiders zur Verteidigung erscheinen? Las Vegas hatte letzten Monat ein Defensivspiel beim Sieg im Arrowhead Stadium, aber 10 der 11 Spieler auf ihrer Reserve- / COVID-19-Liste sind Defensivspieler. Defensives Ende Clelin Ferrell, der positiv getestet wurde, ist wahrscheinlich ausgeschieden, aber der Rest, einschließlich Sicherheit Johnathan Abram und defensiver Zweikämpfe Maliek Collins und Johnathan Hankins, wird spielberechtigt sein, wenn sie diese Woche negativ testen. Und ohne eine starke Verteidigung haben die Raiders keinen Schuss gegen die mächtige Offensive von Kansas City. – Paul Gutierrez
Mutige Vorhersage: Die Raiders haben unter ihrem Saisondurchschnitt von 370 Yards und erhalten null Spiele von mehr als 40 Yards. Das klingt vielleicht nicht sehr kühn, aber bedenken Sie, dass Las Vegas beim letzten Spiel gegen die Chiefs fünf Spiele mit mehr als 40 Yards und fast 500 Yards totaler Beleidigung hatte. Und egal welche Mannschaft gewinnt, danach gibt es keine Siegesrunde mehr im Stadion. – Adam Teicher
Stat zu wissen: Raiders Quarterback Derek Carr hat in dieser Saison einen 94 QBR gegen den Blitz, der hinter Kansas City QB Patrick Mahomes (98) den zweiten Platz belegt. Die Chiefs haben in dieser Saison 34% der gegnerischen QB-Dropbacks geblitzt, die siebthöchste Rate in der NFL.
Verletzungen: Chefs | Raiders
Was Sie für die Fantasie wissen sollten: Vor dem Abschied hatte Chiefs Wide Receiver Tyreek Hill zum dritten Mal in seiner Karriere 25 Spiele mit mehr als 25 Punkten in Folge. Er steht nun vor einer Verteidigung, die Mahomes im Laufe seiner Karriere verletzt hat (26,2 Fantasy-Punkte pro Spiel gegen die Raiders). Siehe Rangliste der 11. Woche.
Wettnugget: Las Vegas ist 5-0 ATS in seinen letzten fünf Spielen gegen AFC West Gegner. Weiterlesen.
Teichers Wahl: Chiefs 33, Raiders 28
Gutierrez ‘Wahl: Chiefs 35, Raiders 17
FPI-Vorhersage: KC 75,8% (durchschnittlich 9,4 Punkte)

Montag, 20.15 Uhr ET | ESPN
Matchup-Bewertung: 82,3 | Ausbreitung:: TB -3,5 (48)
Worauf Sie achten sollten: In der Hauptsendezeit gab es für die Bucs eine Diskrepanz zwischen den Punkten und früheren Spielen in dieser Saison. Sie sind durchschnittlich 15,6 Punkte für und 27 Punkte gegen in Prime-Time-Spielen, verglichen mit 29,6 für und 22,6 gegen in den früheren Schiefer. Dies ist das Finale von vier Spielen zur Hauptsendezeit in dieser Saison, und sie sind 1-2 in diesen Spielen. Um zu gewinnen, müssen sie den Lauf vorzeitig beenden – eine Stärke von ihnen unter dem Defensivkoordinator Todd Bowles -, um die Spielmöglichkeiten von Rams Quarterback Jared Goff einzuschränken und nicht in den ausgeklügelten Einsatz von Sean McVay, Trainer von Los Angeles, verwickelt zu werden Bewegung. Die Freibeuter müssen QB Tom Brady auch genügend Zeit geben, um seine Fortschritte durchzugehen und tiefe Würfe auszuführen, was er vor zwei Wochen nicht gegen die Heiligen hatte. – Jenna Laine
Mutige Vorhersage: Rams defensiver Zweikampf Aaron Donald wird sein drittes Multisack-Spiel der Saison aufzeichnen. Die Säcke kommen in Bündeln, und die Verteidigungsfront der Rams ist in vollem Gange. Nach einer Leistung mit sechs Säcken gegen Russell Wilson und die Seahawks. In zwei Karrierespielen gegen Brady hat Donald den dreimaligen NFL MVP jedoch nie besiegt. Donald wurde auch ohne Sack gegen die Seahawks festgehalten. Achten Sie also darauf, dass der zweifache NFL-Defensivspieler des Jahres am Montag besonders motiviert ist. – Lindsey Thiry
Stat zu wissen: Buccaneers breiter Empfänger Mike Evans hat sich in dieser Saison mit Brady für sieben TD-Fänge in der roten Zone zusammengetan, der zweite unter den Quarterback-Empfänger-Duos in der NFL (Kirk Cousins und Adam Thielen haben acht).
Verletzungen: Rams | Buccaneers
What to know for fantasy: Tampa Bay running back Ronald Jones has been a top-25 performer at the position in five of his past seven games and has a touchdown or three catches in seven straight games. See Week 11 rankings.
Betting nugget: Brady is 8-1-1 ATS in his career on Monday Night Football as a favorite of seven points or fewer. Weiterlesen.
Thiry’s pick: Rams 24, Buccaneers 21
Laine’s pick: Buccaneers 30, Rams 26
