Titans hired Mike Vrabel as head coach.

A Pro Bowl linebacker as recently as 2007, Vrabel climbed the coaching ranks quickly, pitstopping for three years at Ohio State before spending 2014-2016 as the Texans' linebackers coach, then succeeding Romeo Crennel as Texans defensive coordinator in 2017. Albeit in large part due to unfortunate injuries, Vrabel's 2017 Texans defense was a bottom-ten unit, particularly struggling against the pass. Arguably more important than Vrabel's hire will be whomever he chooses to run Tennessee's offense. The development of 24-year-old Marcus Mariota will have the biggest impact on the direction of the Titans' organization.

D.J. Moore hauled in 7-of-8 targets for 157 yards and a touchdown in the Panthers' Week 11 loss to the Lions.

Moore came out of the gates hot, catching two passes for 42 yards on the opening drive. He looked to be headed into the end zone on the second of those catches, but he was pulled down from behind inside the five. He did even better in the second half. With the Panthers facing a third-and-long deep in their own territory, Moore went up high along the sideline to pull in a pass and sprinted down the field for an 82-yard gain before being chased down. It is the third-longest play from scrimmage in the NFL the season and the longest non-scoring play so far. Moore finally found the end zone with a toe-tapping catch late in the fourth quarter to seemingly tie the game, but the Panthers made the questionable decision to go for two. Moore now has two big games sandwiched around two lackluster outings. Likely to be up-and-down all season, Moore will be a risk-reward FLEX play against the Seahawks.

Mike Evans hauled in 6-of-7 targets for 120 yards and one touchdown in the Bucs' near-comeback loss to the Giants.

Evans was well on his way to another disappointing afternoon before Ryan Fitzpatrick was benched in the second half. Jameis Winston came in and promptly peppered Evans with targets, including a 41-yard touchdown bomb that sailed over the watchful eye of CB Janoris Jenkins. He had caught just 4-of-16 targets for a lowly total of 67 yards in his previous two performances, so this outing was needed for both Evans and his owners. He'll have an extremely tough matchup on paper against the Niners and Richard Sherman in Week 12, but can't possibly be benched whether it's Winston or Fitzpatrick under center throwing to him.

Eric Ebron was not targeted in the Colts' 38-10, Week 11 win over the Titans.

The only time Ebron touched the ball was a on trick play pass attempt. He and Andrew Luck could not quite hook up in the end zone. Ebron's role-player usage finally caught up to him in fantasy today. He is wholly dependent on his red zone usage, and Luck was looking elsewhere inside the 20. Ebron does have a lovely Week 12 matchup in the Dolphins, who have gotten absolutely gutted by tight ends this season. He will be a top-16 option.

Ravens coach John Harbaugh said after Sunday's win that Joe Flacco (hip) is not expected back for Week 12.

"It will be tough," Habaugh conceded. The Ravens fielded a dominant Week 11 rushing attack with Lamar Jackson under center, and Jackson now appears set up to make at least one more start. Jackson will run into a cupcake draw against the Raiders, who field the slowest defense in all of football.

Alex Smith is done for the season with a fractured fibula and tibia.

The compound leg fracture occurred in the third quarter of Week 11's loss to Houston. Colt McCoy will close out the year as Washington's starting quarterback. Previously, McCoy and Smith were the only two signal callers on the Redskins' roster. Smith, who turns 35 next May, will have a long road back from this gruesome injury. It's fair to wonder whether he'll be ready for Week 1 in 2019.

Ty Montgomery did not touch the ball in his Week 11 Ravens debut.

Buck Allen got one touch. The Ravens took an extremely run-heavy approach and wound up settling on undrafted rookie Gus Edwards as their lead back. Montgomery is unlikely to develop into a fantasy option down the stretch.
Nov 18 - 4:29 PM

Peyton Barber rushed 18 times for 106 yards and one touchdown in the Bucs' Week 11 loss to the Giants.

He nearly scored a second touchdown on the goal line, but fumbled it forward into the cradling arms of Mike Evans. The Giants had actually been stout in the trenches despite trading away run-stuffing NT Damon Harrison at the deadline, so this outing is a bit of a shock. His 18 carries without rookie Ronald Jones (hamstring) available were certainly encouraging. Whether it's Jameis Winston or Ryan Fitzpatrick under center in Week 12, consider Barber a usage-based touchdown-dependent RB3/FLEX against San Francisco's front-seven.

Alex Collins rushed seven times for 18 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 11 win over the Bengals.

Collins was completely ineffective outside of his seven-yard scoring run, and the Ravens determined UDFA Gus "The Bus" Edwards showed a hotter early-game hand. Collins touched the ball just once after halftime. Even ahead of a mouth-watering Week 12 date with Oakland, Collins will be very difficult to trust as a flex option. Edwards appears to be the Ravens' new lead back.
Nov 18 - 4:25 PM

Undrafted rookie Gus Edwards rushed 17 times for 115 yards and a touchdown in the Ravens' Week 11 win over the Bengals.

The Ravens used a "hot-hand" approach and settled on featuring Edwards after Alex Collins struggled to create early-game yardage on his own. Buck Allen had one touch, and Ty Montgomery didn't touch the ball at all. Edwards now has a chance to become Baltimore's lead back ahead of their Week 12 date with the Raiders. A plus-sized bulldozer type, Edwards never so much as ran for 750 yards in a college season, but opportunity is trending toward his favor ahead of one of the softest stretch-run rush-defense schedules in the league.
Nov 18 - 4:19 PM

Saquon Barkley rushed 27 times for a season-high 142 yards and two touchdowns, tacking on another receiving touchdown for good measure in the Giants' Week 11 victory over the Bucs.

Even Barkley's lack of involvement in the passing game can't be knocked since one of his three targets on the day resulted in a touchdown. A big outing was expected given that the Bucs were without stud defenders Kwon Alexander (torn ACL), Vinny Curry (ankle), and Lavonte David (knee), but Barkley exceeded all expectations in hitting season-high marks in carries, rushing yards, and touchdowns. The generational talent is now remarkably on pace for 253/1,164/11 on the ground and 102/864/5 receiving. He's obviously a matchup-proof commodity that should close the year in elite company.
Nov 18 - 4:19 PM

Amari Cooper caught 3-of-5 targets for 36 yards in the Cowboys' 22-19, Week 11 win over the Falcons.

It was a step back for Cooper in his third game with the team after amassing an 11-133-1 line in his first two appearances against the Titans and Eagles. Cooper averaged nine targets per game in those contests. The matchup against Atlanta was ripe, but Ezekiel Elliott was just cruising all afternoon, totaling 201 yards and a score on 30 touches. Cooper was held catch-less in the first half but made a couple contested grabs in the third quarter. Cooper will look to rebound against the Redskins on Thanksgiving.
