Week 11 Target Analysis (2019 Fantasy Football)

Nov 20, 2019

Week 11 of the NFL season had a strange bit of NFL history. Per Pro Football Talk, the NFL saw something this week that had not happened in 36 years. Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph, Tampa Bay Buccaneers QB Jameis Winston, Carolina Panthers QB Kyle Allen, and Los Angeles Chargers QB Philip Rivers all threw four interceptions. The last time that four NFL quarterbacks threw four interceptions in the same week was in Week 16 of the 1983 season. Denver Broncos QB John Elway, Washington Redskins QB Joe Theismann, Philadelphia Eagles QB Ron Jaworski, and Green Bay Packers QB Lynn Dickey were the four quarterbacks that accomplished that same feat in 1983.

Interceptions are costly to fantasy football owners. It means lost offensive plays and lost scoring opportunities for skill position players. It means that field position and scoring margin change and impact play calling in the game for both teams. Let’s look at how the teams that threw four interceptions and the teams that valued the ball better did in Week 11. To see the target distribution for every NFL player, take a look at Fantasy Pros Most Targeted Players.

Arizona Cardinals: QB Kyler Murray did not do a ton in the passing game, but he did finish with 150 yards passing, two passing touchdowns, and no interceptions. There were two big takeaways I had in this game. First, RB David Johnson is clearly not healthy, yet he was still active. The Cardinals basically had a dead roster spot, as he did not register a touch in this game, and backup RB Kenyan Drake had all 22 touches from the running backs. The second thing is that even though Murray is one of the most exciting players in the NFL, he is a lot like Baltimore Ravens QB Lamar Jackson. So much of his value is tied to his running that there just is not a very high ceiling for his skill position players. Murray is the only quarterback to have a 100.00 or higher rating against the 49ers this year, and he accomplished that feat twice. Yet his leading receiver was WR Christian Kirk with nine targets, six receptions, and 41 yards. WR Larry Fitzgerald and WR Pharoh Cooper each scored touchdowns, but the passing offense did not put up big fantasy numbers. They have a much-needed bye week to heal up Johnson, and they will face the Los Angeles Rams at home in Week 13.

Atlanta Falcons: The Falcons were not flashy on offense, but for the second straight week, they frustrated an NFC South opponent in a road game. They dominated the Carolina Panthers 29-3, and QB Matt Ryan had 311 yards passing, one passing touchdown and no picks. WR Calvin Ridley was the dominant force in the offense with eight targets, eight receptions, 143 yards, and one touchdown. WR Julio Jones added eight targets, six receptions, and 91 yards. Nobody else had more than four targets or more than 32 yards receiving. I do not think the Falcons can recover from a 1-7 start to the season to make the playoffs, but they could play spoiler down the stretch with a very talented offense that is playing better on defense. Atlanta has a very tasty matchup at home against a horrible Tampa Bay secondary. Jones and Ridley could both be WR1s in that game, and WR Russell Gage could have some sleeper appeal.

Baltimore Ravens: The Ravens had one of their best passing days in a while, as QB Lamar Jackson had 222 yards passing, four passing touchdowns, and no picks in a 41-7 win over the Houston Texans. However, it did not really result in much production for the skill position players. TE Mark Andrews led the way with four targets, four receptions, 75 yards, and one touchdown. RB Mark Ingram took two receiving touchdowns away from the wide receivers and tight ends. WR Seth Roberts had the other touchdown reception. Roberts had 10 receptions for 115 yards coming into this game. This offense is incredible, and that starts with Jackson. However, the production is based on his ability to run the ball. The wide receivers and tight ends do not put up huge numbers in most weeks. The Ravens will play at the Los Angeles Rams in Week 12.

Buffalo Bills: Buffalo’s offense is also a poor man’s version of the Baltimore Ravens. QB Josh Allen is a great fantasy quarterback, and he tallied 256 yards and three passing touchdowns. He also ran for 56 yards and another score. I am not saying that Allen is as good as Jackson, Jackson is having a historic season and in the MVP race while Allen is just having a good fantasy season. However, the theme is the same, because even though Allen had a monster game, the only teammate that really benefited was WR John Brown with 14 targets, nine receptions, 137 yards, and two touchdowns. WR Cole Beasley had the second-most receiving yards with 38, and TE Dawson Knox had the other touchdown. Allen is one of many young mobile quarterbacks that are putting up monster fantasy games with their feet, but their teammates do not share in the fantasy glory. Allen has a tough matchup at home against the Denver Broncos’ solid pass defense in Week 12.

Carolina Panthers: The Panthers hit rock bottom on Sunday, losing 29-3 at home to a team that was 28th in points allowed and 23rd in yards allowed headed into that game. Turnovers were the story of the game: QB Kyle Allen had 325 yards passing, but he had no touchdown throws and four interceptions. Three of those four interceptions were in the red zone, which handicapped his skill position players in fantasy and killed the Panthers’ chances of winning the game. RB Christian McCaffrey led the way with 14 targets, 11 receptions, and 121 yards. WR D.J. Moore added 15 targets, eight receptions, and 95 yards. TE Greg Olsen had five targets, five receptions, and 57 yards. WR Curtis Samuel was really the only complete disappointment with seven targets, four receptions, and 25 yards. They go to New Orleans in Week 12, but Allen looks like he has been exposed. The only thing saving him from being benched for QB Cam Newton is that Newton was placed on IR. The Panthers will continue to limp through the 2019 season with a quarterback that is good enough to put up some numbers, but not good enough to lead an explosive offense.

Chicago Bears: The nice thing about Chicago is that there are no surprises in their passing game. Some teams have just enough good games to fool you into thinking they could excel, only to let you down. The Bears skip the pleasantries and just pass the ball horrifically every week. QB Mitchell Trubisky had 43 pass attempts, but he tallied only 190 yards passing, one passing touchdown, and one pick. WR Taylor Gabriel had 14 targets, seven receptions, 57 yards, and no touchdowns. WR Anthony Miller had 11 targets, six receptions, 54 yards, and no touchdowns. The normally dependable WR Allen Robinson had only six targets, four receptions, 14 yards, and no touchdowns. RB Tarik Cohen caught the only touchdown pass of the game. Trubisky supposedly left with a hip injury, but they could have pulled him for poor play too. They have a great matchup at the New York Giants, but even if backup QB Chase Daniel is under center, this is an offense to avoid.

Cincinnati Bengals: Week after painful week, this offense finds a way to underwhelm. Oakland was 30th against the pass and 32nd in touchdown passes allowed. That did not deter the Bengals from tallying 115 passing yards on 31 passing attempts for a staggeringly low 3.7 yards per attempt. Furthermore, they had only 13 completions in the game, so WR Auden Tate was the only wide receiver to top 25-yards receiving in this game with four receptions for 56 yards. He took a hard hit to the back of his head and was carted off the field. They play a Pittsburgh team at home that beat them 27-3 earlier in the year. There is not much hope for anyone on this offense to be fantasy relevant in the passing game for the rest of the year.

Cleveland Browns: Cleveland’s win was overshadowed by the horrific actions of DE Myles Garrett, who used a helmet as a weapon and tried to attack Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph. Lost in that season-ending suspension was that QB Baker Mayfield had 193 yards passing, two passing touchdowns, and no picks in the contest. The passing numbers were pretty meager, as WR Odell Beckham led the team with 10 targets, four receptions, 60 yards receiving, and no receiving touchdowns. WR Jarvis Landry had four receptions for 43 yards and one touchdown. TE Stephen Carlson added the other touchdown. What has become evident is that RB Kareem Hunt is going to have a major role in the passing game the rest of the way. He had eight targets, six receptions, 46 yards, and no touchdowns. His targets and receiving yards were second on the team, and his six receptions led the team. Cleveland has a great matchup this week against the Miami Dolphins at home.

Dallas Cowboys: QB Dak Prescott had a monster game with 444 yards passing and three passing touchdowns in a 35-27 win over the Detroit Lions. This is a week after he threw for 397 yards and three touchdowns, and he has nine touchdown passes against two interceptions in his last three games. WR Amari Cooper was quiet in this game with three receptions for 38 yards. WR Michael Gallup and WR Randall Cobb picked up the slack. Gallup had 13 targets, nine receptions, and 148 yards. Cobb chipped in with seven targets, four receptions, 115 yards, and one touchdown. The only bad thing is the good offensive run may come to an end next week. Prescott has shined against the New York Giants, Minnesota Vikings, and Detroit Lions. Next week is a different test on the road against the New England Patriots elite defense.

Denver Broncos: The Broncos built a 20-0 lead in the first half thanks to a Minnesota offense that bumbled around in the first half. They could not keep up the pace in the second half, scoring only a field goal and driving the length of the field before not being able to score a touchdown to win the game. QB Brandon Allen was just 17 for 39 with 240 yards, one touchdown, one pick, and a QB rating of 61.9. WR Courtland Sutton had five receptions for 113 yards, and he continues to be one of the best fantasy wide receivers in the NFL this year. TE Noah Fant had a decent performance with 11 targets, four receptions, and 60 yards. The surprise was WR Tim Patrick, who had eight targets, four receptions, and 77 yards in his first game back from injured reserve. That is a lot of targets and could put him in the WR3 discussion for some weeks. The problem is that his floor is extremely low playing with Allen. They have a tough matchup against the Bills on the road in Week 12.

Detroit Lions: Backup QB Jeff Driskel kept the Lions in the game, but they ended up losing at home to the Dallas Cowboys 35-27. WR Marvin Jones was the star of their passing game with four receptions for 43 yards and two touchdowns. WR Danny Amendola led the team in receiving yards with just 47, and WR Kenny Golladay was held to one catch for 34 yards. The reality is that the floor is extremely low for every fantasy player on the Lions without starting QB Matthew Stafford. The Lions have a great matchup at Washington. Hopefully for fantasy owners, Stafford is able to return for this dream matchup.

Green Bay Packers: The bye week came at a good time for the Packers, as they need to hit the reset button on their passing offense. QB Aaron Rodgers is having a fantastic season with 2,718 yards passing, 17 passing touchdowns, and two interceptions. The issue is that eight of the 17 passing touchdowns have gone to RB Aaron Jones and RB Jamaal Williams and that no wide receiver has more than two touchdowns on the season. WR Davante Adams has averaged a healthy 89.5 yards receiving per game, but he has missed four games due to injury. The good news is that despite their passing game not clicking on all cylinders, the Packers still have won eight of their first ten games. They have a Sunday Night Football matchup with the San Francisco 49ers in Week 12, one of the toughest defenses in the NFC.

Houston Texans: Houston needed to make a statement in this game to be considered among the best teams in the AFC. Instead, they trailed 14-0 at the half, and the wheels fell off the wagon in the second half in a 41-7 loss at the Baltimore Ravens. QB Deshaun Watson had only 169 yards passing, no passing touchdowns, and one pick. WR DeAndre Hopkins had the only viable fantasy day in the passing game with seven receptions for 80 yards and no touchdowns. No other wide receiver was able to top 30 yards receiving. The Texans will have games that amaze you, but they will also have games like this one. They are among the most volatile offenses in the NFL. They travel to Indianapolis to play the Colts in Week 12. Watson had 308 yards passing, one touchdown, and two interceptions in that game.

Indianapolis Colts: The big news was that RB Marlon Mack broke his hand and is going to miss some time going forward. RB Jonathan Williams filled in with 13 rushing attempts for 116 yards, and he added a 31-yard reception, which was second-most on the team. He is going to be the waiver wire addition of the week. QB Jacoby Brissett did not do much in this game with just 148 yards passing and one passing touchdown. His team had a 17-7 lead midway through the third quarter and a 31-7 lead in the fourth quarter, so there was no reason to air it out in this game. WR Marcus Johnson was the leading receiver with four receptions for 38 yards and the Colts only receiving touchdown. The Colts play the Houston Texans on Sunday Night Football. Do not expect much in the passing game, as they will likely lean on a committee of running backs led by Williams.

Jacksonville Jaguars: I think the most encouraging thing in this 33-13 loss is that QB Nick Foles still favored WR D.J. Chark in the passing game. Sometimes when a new quarterback comes back, it changes the target distribution, but Chark had 15 targets, eight receptions, 104 yards, and two touchdowns this week. WR Chris Conley had eight targets, six receptions, and 58 yards, and WR Dede Westbrook added six targets, four receptions, and 32 yards. The Jaguars are not going to maintain a ratio of 47 pass attempts to nine rushing attempts going forward, but what I took away from this game is that Chark is still going to be a weekly fantasy play with Conley and Westbrook being matchup-dependent players with some upside but low floors.

Kansas City Chiefs: The big news out of this game is that WR Tyreek Hill tweaked his hamstring and has should have an MRI that will determine the severity of the injury. He tried to stay in the game, and the Chiefs do have a Week 12 bye, so my guess is this is going to come back as a minor injury that should resolve itself after the bye or with a minimal absence. TE Travis Kelce carried the passing game in his absence with 10 targets, seven receptions, 92 yards, and one touchdown. No other player topped 30-yards receiving as Mahomes had only 182 yards passing and one touchdown pass. The Chiefs have a bye week to allow Hill to heal up before they play the Oakland Raiders at home.

Los Angeles Chargers: Rivers had a big yardage day with 353 yards passing, but he had only one touchdown and four interceptions. WR Keenan Allen and RB Austin Ekeler led the team in targets with 12. Ekeler had eight receptions for 108 yards, and Allen had eight receptions for 71 yards and a touchdown. That was his first touchdown reception since Week 3. WR Mike Williams had a 50-yard reception that helped him reach 76 yards on two catches, and TE Hunter Henry had six receptions for 69 yards. Nobody else had more than 25-yards receiving. The Chargers have a bye before returning in Week 13 to face the Denver Broncos tough pass defense. These teams faced each other in Week 5, and the Broncos held Rivers to 211 yards passing and no passing touchdowns.

Los Angeles Rams: The Rams did not do much in the passing game, but they had a 10-point lead against a team that was not going to be capable of scoring 10 points, so they took the air out of the football and threw it only 18 times compared to 34 rushing attempts. Goff had only 173 yards passing and no passing touchdowns, while WR Josh Reynolds led the way with three receptions for 55 yards. The only other wide receiver to top 50 receiving yards was WR Cooper Kupp with three targets, three receptions, and 53 yards. They should pass the ball more next week on Monday Night Football when they host the Baltimore Ravens. They will need to score more than 17 points if they want to have a chance to win that game against a Ravens team that averages 34.1 points per game.

Miami Dolphins: Miami was not able to keep the winning going, as they lost at home to the Buffalo Bills. QB Ryan Fitzpatrick did have 323 yards passing, but he failed to find the end zone. Surprisingly, the running game had only 13 carries for 23 yards, but both touchdowns were on the ground. WR DeVante Parker continued to impress with 10 targets, seven receptions, and 135 yards. He is going to be a WR3 the rest of the way as the best receiver on this offense. Nobody else had more than 60-yards receiving, and TE Mike Gesicki disappointed with four receptions for just 17 yards on six targets. Up next, the Dolphins have the Cleveland Browns defense on the road. That could be an interesting matchup, as the Browns pass rush will be severely hindered with the loss of DE Myles Garrett due to suspension for trying to maul Pittsburgh Steelers QB Mason Rudolph with a helmet. I would still not trust anyone on the Dolphins offense other than Parker.

Minnesota Vikings: In the past five NFL seasons, teams that built a lead of at least 20 points by halftime had won 99 consecutive games. There was every reason to believe the Vikings were a dead team walking when they trailed 20-0 at the half. Yet they rallied and won the game 27-23, thanks to QB Kirk Cousins throwing for 319 yards and three touchdowns. WR Stefon Diggs led the way with five receptions for 121 yards and one touchdown. The only other player with more than 40 yards receiving was TE Kyle Rudolph with five receptions for 67 yards and one touchdown. That is back-to-back games that he has scored a touchdown, and he has to be considered a viable fantasy option at a position that is very lean when it comes to fantasy scoring. TE Irv Smith Jr. scored the other touchdown, but he had only three catches for 20 yards. His floor is still too low to be a fantasy-viable option. The Vikings head into their bye week hoping that WR Adam Thielen can regain his health before they have a road game at the Seattle Seahawks.

New England Patriots: The Patriots passing game has really hit the skids in recent weeks, as QB Tom Brady had just 216 yards passing and no passing touchdowns against an Eagles defense that had ranked 16th against fantasy quarterbacks headed into this game. Brady now has only four touchdown passes in his last four games, and he has not eclipsed 300-yards passing since Week 6. WR Julian Edelman led the team with 10 targets, five receptions, 53 yards, and no touchdowns. WR Phillip Dorsett had the only touchdown reception in the game, which was thrown by Edelman. TE Ben Watson was the only other player with more than 50 yards receiving, finishing with three receptions on four targets for 52 yards. You have to be concerned that Brady may have finally hit a wall at 42-years old, but he has had stretches like this in recent years and rebounded to play good football. They have a tough matchup against the Dallas Cowboys at home in Week 12.

New Orleans Saints: The Saints were not flashy on offense, but QB Drew Brees rebounded from last week’s bad performance with 228 yards passing, three passing touchdowns, and no picks. As expected, WR Michael Thomas was his go-to wide receiver with 11 targets, eight receptions, 114 yards, and one receiving touchdown. RB Alvin Kamara added 10 targets, 10 receptions, and 47 yards. Nobody else had more than 40-yards receiving. TE Jared Cook and WR Ted Ginn scored the two other receiving touchdowns. The Saints have a matchup in Week 12 at home against a Carolina team that has been slumping in recent weeks.

New York Giants: The Giants have had a lost season, winning only two of their first eight games, but their passing offense has been playing some good football in recent weeks. QB Daniel Jones had 322 yards passing and four passing touchdowns in Week 8 against the Detroit Lions. In Week 10, he had 308 yards passing and four more passing touchdowns. There was a dud against Dallas in between those games, but he still had 210 yards passing and one passing touchdown and only one interception. Unfortunately for the Giants, they lost all three games, but that has not prevented WR Golden Tate and WR Darius Slayton from becoming viable fantasy options, alongside RB Saquon Barkley and TE Evan Engram. They do not have a great matchup in Week 12 against the Chicago Bears, but there will be some nice matchups for the fantasy playoffs. They play at Philadelphia, Miami, and at Washington in Week 14-16.

New York Jets: I do not know how much stock I would put in this game going forward because Washington has one of the worst rosters in the NFL. Still, Jets QB Sam Darnold was 19 for 30 with 293 yards passing, four passing touchdowns, one pick, and a QB rating of 121.3. TE Ryan Griffin continued to have a big role with five targets, five receptions, 109 yards, and one touchdown. He should be at least a weekly TE2 going forward with TE Chris Herndon on injured reserve with a rib injury. WR Jamison Crowder has also been fantasy-viable at times this year, and he had eight targets, five receptions, 76 yards, and one touchdown. Nobody else had more than 50-yards receiving, and the other two touchdowns went to WR Robby Anderson and TE Daniel Brown. Anderson has been very quiet as his one touchdown was on his only catch of the day for six yards. The Jets play the Oakland Raiders at home, which could be a favorable matchup for their passing game in Week 12.

Oakland Raiders: The Raiders were okay on offense, but not great considering their opponent was the Cincinnati Bengals. QB Derek Carr was efficient with 292 yards passing on just 29 pass attempts with one touchdown and one pick. WR Tyrell Williams had four receptions for 82 yards, TE Darren Waller had five receptions for 78 yards, and WR Hunter Renfrow added five receptions for 66 yards. TE Foster Moreau scored the only receiving touchdown. They led the entire second half and ran the ball 34 times in the win, which took the air out of the football. They travel to the New York Jets, which could produce some big passing numbers on the road.

Philadelphia Eagles: QB Carson Wentz did not embarrass himself against the best defense in the NFL, but he certainly did not impress either. He was just 20 for 40 with 214 yards passing, one passing touchdown, no picks, and a QB rating of 74.4. Their tight ends continued to dominate with TE Zach Ertz finishing with 11 targets, nine receptions, and 94 yards. TE Dallas Goedert chipped in with three receptions for 36 yards and their only touchdown. It did hurt them that WR Alshon Jeffery was out this week, and WR Nelson Agholor was not able to shine with nine targets, four receptions, and 40 yards. They will look to have a better game next week at home against the Seattle Seahawks.

Pittsburgh Steelers: The Steelers were an absolute disaster on Thursday Night Football when it came to passing the ball. QB Mason Rudolph had 221 yards passing and one passing touchdown, but he also had four interceptions. WR James Washington led the way with three receptions for 49 yards, and RB Jaylen Samuels had the only touchdown. Their entire offense was a collection of dink and dunk plays with Rudolph averaging only 5.2 yards per attempt. He was sacked four times for a loss of 42 yards, and his longest pass play of the game was for 22 yards. This has been a reoccurring theme for the Steelers. They have enough playmakers to have some big offensive days, but Rudolph is so inconstant that the floor is games like they had on Thursday Night Football. The Steelers should rebound with a road game at the Cincinnati Bengals in Week 12.

San Francisco 49ers: The 49ers figured out how to expose the Arizona Cardinals pass defense this year. In their previous meeting, QB Jimmy Garoppolo had 317 yards passing and four passing touchdowns. In this game, he had 424 yards passing and four more passing touchdowns. He currently has 18 touchdowns on the season. The Cardinals have surrendered eight touchdowns in two games, and the rest of the league has surrendered 10 touchdowns in eight games. I do not know if this would inspire me to rank Garoppolo as a QB1 the rest of the way, but he did have a great game without his favorite target, TE George Kittle. WR Deebo Samuel led the way with 10 targets, eight receptions, and 134 yards. The touchdowns went to backup TE Ross Dwelley (2), WR Kendrick Boone, and RB Jeff Wilson. Nobody other than Samuel and FB Kyle Juszczyk had more than 60 yards receiving. They just spread the ball around to a bunch of different players and the passing numbers built up over the course of the game. They will host the Green Bay Packers on Sunday Night Football in Week 12.

Seattle Seahawks: The Seahawks had a bye in Week 11, and they will be traveling to the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 12. That bye week came at a great time, as WR Tyler Lockett suffered a leg injury in Week 10, and he might not have been able to go if they had a game in Week 11. QB Russell Wilson is playing at an MVP level, and if Lockett is not able to go, that will increase targets for WR D.K. Metcalf and TE Jacob Hollister. It could also give WR Josh Gordon a chance to establish himself in this offense. Lockett owners will need to have a contingency plan, as head coach Pete Carroll has been known to be too optimistic when it comes to players returning from injury. Other than the Locket injury, the Seahawks should be ready to roll on offense coming off their bye week.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers: It is the same old story for the Buccaneers this week. Jameis Winston can make some big plays in the passing game, evidenced by 313 yards passing and two passing touchdowns. The problem is that he leads the league in interceptions with 18, and his four interceptions were costly against the Saints. The first interception was a botched reception by TE O.J. Howard, and he never saw the field again. TE Cameron Brate led the team with 14 targets, 10 receptions, and 73 yards. WR Scotty Miller joined WR Mike Evans and WR Chris Godwin as the most productive players in the passing game. Miller had six targets, four receptions, and 71 yards. WR Mike Evans had four receptions, 69 yards, and no touchdowns. WR Chris Godwin had three receptions, 47 yards, and one touchdown. I think Brate is worth a flyer in fantasy leagues because the tight end position is relatively unproductive, and Brate has good chemistry with Winston. Miller is not worth adding, as his production could have been the result of Winston throwing 51 times in a game that they never had the lead.

Tennessee Titans: QB Ryan Tannehill did give a spark to this offense, but this is still one of the most anemic offenses in the NFL. The team did have 306 and 310 yards off passing offense against the Chargers and Panthers in Week 7 and Week 9, but they also had only 174 and 146 passing yards gained in Week 8 and Week 10. The floor is very low on an offense that still strives to feature RB Derrick Henry. WR A.J. Brown has been their most productive player with 27 receptions for 446 yards and three touchdowns. TE Jonnu Smith has also emerged filling in for injured TE Delanie Walker with 22 receptions, 287 yards, and one touchdown. The Titans will host the Jacksonville Jaguars in Week 12. The Jaguars are not the same defense juggernaut they were in 2017, so there will be an opportunity to score some fantasy games, but the floor is very low for an inconsistent Titans passing game.

Washington Redskins: QB Dwayne Haskins did have 214 yards passing and two passing touchdowns, but his team was down 34-3 before he had a couple of garbage-time touchdowns in the fourth quarter. One was a 45-yard touchdown to RB Derrius Guice, his only reception of the game. The other was a one-yard touchdown pass to TE Jeremy Sprinkle. WR Terry McLaurin led the team with 69 yards receiving on three receptions. WR Kelvin Harmon chipped in with a team-leading six targets, five receptions, and 53 yards receiving. I think Guice and McLaurin are going to be the only fantasy viable players most weeks, and their floors are going to be incredibly low playing on the worst offense in the NFL. Washington hosts the Detroit Lions in Week 12.
