Week 11 unfortunately brought us a season-ending injury for Joe Burrow, the promising young rookie who has looked so good early on in his career. This loss will undoubtedly have an impact on Tee Higgins and Tyler Boyd moving forward, and I doubt at this point if we’ll see Joe Mixon rushed back to a team that’s likely now looking to tank.
It was a big day for receivers, as Keenan Allen and Adam Thielen paced the league in fantasy points, and it was
Jakobi Meyers Damiere Byrd who capitalized on the seven targets thrown his way against the porous Houston defense. If you thought you had figured out the Patriots’ offense after 10 weeks, well, joke’s on you! CeeDee Lamp also made an incredibly acrobatic catch in the end zone, earning himself the spotlight in our graphic as he looked rejuvenated with an actual QB under center for Dallas.
Weather didn’t play nearly as much of a factor this week, save for the brutally sloppy Browns-Eagles game that ended up being a defensive showdown. I’m sure the people of Cleveland could care less about the weather as long as the Browns keep posting those W’s.
