Aaron Jones exploded for 145 rushing yards and two TDs last week
Even with six teams on bye, Week 11 may be one of the least impactful in that sense, but that doesn't mean some fantasy owners won't feel it. From a flex standpoint, George Kittle, Matt Breida and the surging Nick Chubb will certainly be missed this week.
Week 10 featured plenty of high-scoring performances and this week has some of the same potential, especially if the Chiefs-Rams matchup on Monday nights goes as many expect. The week could get started off in a big way with Green Bay and Seattle facing off on Thursday night.
Start any Chief or Ram that you have, because if anything, moving the game from Mexico City to Los Angeles could mean even more offensive fireworks because of the more familiar surroundings.
For the Packers, Aaron Jones is coming off of his best game of the season and seemingly has established himself as the workhorse in the backfield. Sunday's showcase had to bring many a smile to his owners' faces, especially if they held on to him for this long.
Minnesota is one of four teams returning from bye and the hope is that the time off did the secondary and Stefon Diggs some good. Adam Thielen's streak of 100-yard game came to an end in Week 9, the game that Diggs missed. Coincidence? I think not but the Sunday night game against Chicago could tell us a lot.
At the top of these rankings you will find the usual suspects but perhaps a few surprises. For example, is Saquon Barkley really a better play than Todd Gurley this week? Certainly no disrespect to Gurley, who is second only to Patrick Mahomes in fantasy points (depending on league scoring), but Barkley is every bit of the real deal and his matchup this week is drool-worthy.
Teams on bye: Buffalo, Cleveland, Miami, New England, New York Jets, San Francisco
