Fantasy Football: Rising and Falling for Week 11

Here's a look at some players who are trending in the right direction and some that you should probably worry about.


RISING


Quarterbacks


Aaron Rodgers, Packers: If it turns out that Rodgers has newfound chemistry with his rookie wideout Christian Watson, that could turn into more productive weeks for the reigning MVP.


Justin Fields, Bears: He continues to pop up in this section because it looks like he could turn out to be a league winner for some fantasy managers. He's accounted for 11 touchdowns over the last three games, and has two straight 100-yard rushing games.


Patrick Mahomes, Chiefs: He's thrown for at least 330 yards in four straight weeks, including a 331-yard performance with four touchdowns in the win over the Jaguars.


Running backs


Jonathan Taylor, Colts: Taylor had his best game since Week 1 as he rushed for 147 yards and a score in the win over the Raiders. We'll see if he can finally string some good games together now.


Dalvin Cook, Vikings: He rushed for over 100 yards for the second time in three games in the big win over the Bills. He also scored a TD and caught three passes for 27 yards.


Jeff Wilson, Dolphins: The move to Miami is turning out well for Wilson so far. He rushed for 119 yards and scored while catching three passes for 24 yards. He's outplaying Raheem Mostert.


Wide receivers


CeeDee Lamb, Cowboys: Catching 11 passes for 150 yards for two scores was only eclipsed by Christian Watson's three-TD performance. Lamb will be needed if the Cowboys hope to beat the Vikings in Week 11.


Justin Jefferson, Vikings: Speaking of Minnesota, Jefferson has been outstanding all year, but his most recent production has him in the top-tier of performers. He has six 100-yard games, with four of those going over 140 yards.


Christian Kirk, Jaguars: He's on bye in Week 11, but three of his last four games have been very productive. He had nine catches for 105 yards and two touchdowns against the Chiefs.


FALLING


Quarterbacks


Justin Herbert, Chargers: He threw for 196 yards and one score while also tossing an interception as he was missing both Keenan Allen and Mike Williams in the loss to the 49ers. Fortunately, he gets to face the Chiefs, who he had success against in Week 2.


Josh Allen, Bills: Allen hasn't been bad, but he's definitely been in a bit of a slump compared to the crazy numbers he was putting up earlier this season. He's had two picks in each of the three games since the bye and has accounted for five TDs in that span, below his typical output.


Jimmy Garoppolo, 49ers: In Weeks 5 through 8, Garoppolo had at least two TD passes in each week. Coming off the bye week he had no passing touchdowns as he threw for 240 yards.


Running backs


Kareem Hunt, Browns: Before the bye week, it looked like Hunt would get a little more involved as he had 15 touches in Week 8. Week 10 looked bad, though, as he had just seven touches for 19 yards.


Cordarrelle Patterson, Falcons: Six touches for 20 yards was not a good encore from the solid outing last week when he returned from injury.


Alvin Kamara, Saints: He's had single-digit touches in three weeks this season, with two of those games occurring in the last two weeks.


Wide receivers


Cooper Kupp, Rams: The oft-targeted Kupp is now dealing with an ankle injury after catching three passes for minus-1 yard without Matthew Stafford on Sunday. He'll miss time now.


Amari Cooper, Browns: You can't really trust him at this point as he's had at least three certifiable duds, including Sunday's three-catch, 32-yard output.


D.J. Moore, Panthers: For a couple of weeks there he was performing really well, but the last two weeks have been bad. He's been under 30 receiving yards in each of the last two games.
