Daniel Sorensen posted six solo tackles, two assisted tackles, one pass defended, and one interception in a 24-17 win over the Chargers.

Fantasy Impact: Sorensen's first interception of 2019 came in the waning moments of the game, and it preserved a crucial win for a Chiefs team who suddenly finds themselves in an unforeseen two-way battle for the AFC West crown. He and the Chiefs have a bye before taking on the Raiders next Sunday for a spot atop the division.

Tyrann Mathieu logged four solo tackles, four assisted tackles, two passes defended, and an INT, as the Chiefs toppled the Chargers, 24-17.

Fantasy Impact: Mathieu's interception was the second of four picks the Chiefs' defense created against Phillip Rivers. His was especially important, as the Kansas City offense scored on the next play and provided the first touchdown for team that struggled to move the ball consistently all day. His ball-hawking abilities will be needed in a crucial matchup against the second-place Raiders after their bye week.

Frank Clark recorded two solo tackles, three assisted tackles, one TFL, one sack, three QB hits, one pass defended, and a forced fumble in a 24-17 win over the Chargers in Mexico City.

Fantasy Impact: Clark is starting to show why the Chiefs traded for him this past offseason, as he's had a sack in three straight games. Though his season numbers are still a little underwhelming, he'll need to be a force on the defensive line for Kansas City to make a deep playoff run.

Joey Bosa registered just two solo tackles and two QB hits in a 24-17 defeat to Kansas City.

Fantasy Impact: Bosa was a point of focus by the Chiefs offense, limiting him to one of his worst statistical games of the year. In doing so, it at least freed up teammate Melvin Ingram to have a good game. Bosa will have a chance to redeem himself against the Broncos after the Chargers' bye week.

Melvin Ingram recorded four solo tackles, one assisted tackle, two TFLs, one sack, two QB hits, and two passes defended, but the Chargers fell to the Chiefs in Mexico City, 24-17.

Fantasy Impact: After starting the season off slowly, Ingram has been on a roll as of late. In the last three games, he has recorded 4.5 sacks and six QB hits. He and the Bolts will try to end their two-game losing streak against the Broncos after their bye week.

According to head coach Sean McVay, Los Angeles Rams star receiver Brandin Cooks is expected back for Week 12 against the Baltimore Ravens. (Source: Adam Schefter on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The Rams are going to need Cooks back if they are to have any chance against a surging Ravens defense. Cooks return is a big get for a Rams offense that looked unimaginative at best against the Chicago Bears on Sunday night. Due to the tough matchup, Cooks will be a more of a high upside WR3 than a WR2 against Baltimore in Week 12.

Indianapolis Colts running back Jordan Wilkins was listed as DNP on the team's estimated practice report. (Source: Indianapolis Colts on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: While this is just an estimated practice report, monitoring Wilkins' status ahead of the waiver claim deadline will be imperative for fantasy owners with designs on submitting a claim for Jonathan Williams. Marlon Mack will be out after having surgery on his broken right hand, and a Wilkins absence could lead to Williams operating as the unquestioned early down back against the Texans. Aside from a debacle against the Ravens last week, Houston has been rock solid against the run this season. Nyheim Hines may make for a better play if Wilkins is unable to go.

Indianapolis Colts rookie wide receiver Parris Campbell was listed as a limited participant on the team's estimated practice report. (Source: Indianapolis Colts on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: The limited designation is big news for a Colts team that is expected to be without T.Y. Hilton and Marlon Mack on Thursday night. Campbell's speed and skillset will allow him to operate both downfield, and short as an extension of the run game. Hilton was showing increased chemistry with Jacoby Brissett prior to his injury, and could hit the ground running in what could be a game flow induced high volume night for the talented rookie. Campbell will be low floor, high upside flex2 option for Week 12.

Indianapolis Colts tight end Eric Ebron was listed as DNP on the team's estimated practice report. (Source: Indianapolis Colts on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Ebron was able to play through the injury, as well as an illness on Sunday, and should be cleared for Thursday night's tilt with the Houston Texans. Ebron logged just 43 percent of the snaps in Week 11. Ebron remains a low floor TE2 against a Texans defense that has been steady against tight ends this season.

Indianapolis Colts star receiver T.Y. Hilton was listed as DNP on the team's estimated practice report. (Source: Indianapolis Colts on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Hilton will likely need to return to the practice field over the next two days to be cleared in time for Thursday Night Football against the Houston Texans. This will be a situation to monitor.

Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams has been ruled out for the rest of Monday Night Football against the Los Angeles Chargers. (Source: Around the NFL on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Williams was knocked out of the game in the second quarter with a rib injury, and will miss the rest of the contest. Much to the chagrin of Williams' fantasy owners, Darrell Williams was given a goal line carry that he converted to a score that may have very likely went to Damien if he was healthy. Williams ends the night with four carries for seven rushing yards, and one reception for six yards receiving.

Head coach Matt Patrica stated that Matthew Stafford remains week to week with his back injury. (Source: Tim Twentyman on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Stafford is dealing with a fractured back, an injury that could cost him up to six weeks in total. Jeff Driskel will continue to start and drain the fantasy values of Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones. Driskel has been a surprising fantasy asset in Stafford's absence and will continue to boast high end QB2 upside against Washington in Week 12.

Houston Texans star receiver Will Fuller was listed as a limited participant on the team's estimated practice report. (Source: Texans PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Will Fuller was able to log limited sessions for all of last week before being declared inactive for Sunday's tilt with the Ravens. It is expected that the Texans held Fuller out in a tough matchup against the Ravens to ensure he was ready for Thursday Night Football against their division rivals Indianapolis Colts in a battle for first place in the AFC South. Fuller should be active on Thursday and will be a massive upside WR3 play.

Houston Texans superstar quarterback Deshaun Watson was listed as a full participant on the team's estimated practice report. (Source: Texans PR on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Watson suffered the ankle injury on Sunday against the Baltimore Ravens. The team was confident enough to list him as a full participant on the estimated report which suggests that while they expect him to play on the short week, that this is an injury they will be monitoring up until Thursday. Watson remains a no-brainer QB1 despite the horrible showing against the Ravens suddenly ferocious secondary.

New York Giants wide receiver Sterling Shepard was able to log a full practice on Monday. (Source: Pat Leonard on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Shepard expericned a setback after first clearing the concussion protocol, but his full participation in a Monday practice bodes well for his chances of being able to suit up for the Giants in Week 12. Shepard will have to battle Golden Tate and emerging rookie Darius Slayton for wide receiver targets. Shepard will be a WR4 with matchup based WR3 upside when he is able to return to the field.

Dallas Cowboys superstar receiver Amari Cooper is still dealing with pain in his injured knee, and is said to be 'still fighting through the injury'. (Source: Michael Gehlken on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Cooper played just 41 of the teams 74 snaps in Week 11 (55 percent). He hauled in just three of his eight targets for 38 yards, but served as an invaluable decoy allowing Michael Gallup and Randall Cobb to get loose for monster outings. Cooper should continue to battle through the injury, but may be more of a low end WR2 against Darius Slay and the Detroit Lions in Week 12.

San Francisco 49ers rookie wide receiver/running back Jalen Hurd is not expected to make his NFL debut this season, after experiencing setbacks with the stress fracture in his back. (Source: Nick Wagoner on Twitter)

Fantasy Impact: Jalen Hurd would have been a tremendous addition to the 49ers beleaguered wide receiver corps. His ability to play both running back and wide receiver at a high level would have made him an exciting player to watch in Kyle Shanahan's offense. With Dante Pettis potentially on his way out of the Bay area, and Emmanuel Sanders a free agent, Hurd will look to lock up one of the top three receiver roles in 2020.

Washington tight end Jeremy Sprinkle hauled in two of his three targets for 16 yards and a score in Week 11 against the New York Jets.

Fantasy Impact: Sprinkle has been a disappointment filling in for Vernon Davis (concussion) and Jordan Reed (concussion), but found pay dirt for the first time this season versus the Jets. Sprinkle should not be on fantasy radars outside of ocean deep tight end premium formats.

Category: Game Recaps


Jacksonville Jaguars tight end Josh Oliver hauled in one of his two targets for five yards receiving in Week 11.

Fantasy Impact: Josh Oliver played 54 percent of the team's snaps, but did not see an expanded role with Nick Foles under center. Oliver has had a disappointing rookie season despite injuries to Geoff Swaim and James O'Shaughnessy.

Category: Game Recaps


Detroit Lions rookie tight end T.J. Hockenson continued to disappoint in Week 11, notching just six yards receiving on his lone reception.

Fantasy Impact: Hockenson saw just two targets on the afternoon, and has not seen his value buoyed with Jeff Driskel under center. This was his lowest fantasy output since Week 3 in what has been a season to forget for the talented rookie. Hockenson played 74 percent of the team's snaps. He will remain a zero floor TE2 for Week 12.
