      Inside linebacker Hayes Pullard is listed as doubtful for Sunday's game against the Bills with a neck injury.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Chargers feature an interesting matchup this week as they will face rookie QB Nathan Peterman who is making his first career NFL start following the Bills' benching of Tyrod Taylor. The Bills are likely to try and rely on LeSean McCoy and the running game, but the success of recent seasons hasn't quite been there in 2017, as the rushing attack ranks in the middle of the league. The Chargers are allowing 19.1 points per game and are third in the NFL with 29 sacks, but have given up chunk yards at times and don't consistently force turnovers. Buffalo rarely turned the ball over with Taylor at the helm, and are likely to be even more conservative with a rookie QB on Sunday. Los Angeles should be a high-floor fantasy option for Week 11 against an inconsistent offense with a rookie QB in his first career start.

      Linebackers Tamba Hali (knee) and Dee Ford (back) have both been ruled out for Sunday's game against the Giants.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Chiefs defense has been subpar this season, giving up an average of 28.1 points and 390.3 yards per game --both bottom five in the NFL -- and will be extraordinarily thin at outside linebacker with Ford and Hali ruled out. Kansas City has been opportunistic at times, and one of those time could prove to be this weekend as they face the 1-8 Giants, which is averaging only 16.7 points per game. Generally the Chiefs haven't been a defense one can rely on this season with good offenses consistently being able to move the ball down the field, but they could prove to be a decent streaming option against QB Eli Manning and an offense that has three of their top four receivers on injured reserve.

      The Jaguars continue to lead the NFL with 35 sacks on the season.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: The Jacksonville defense continues to perform week after week, and have given up only 24 points over the last three games. The Jags are also second in the NFL with 18 takeaways, and now have a matchup with the winless Browns. Cleveland has the second-worst offense in the league averaging 15.9 points and lead the league in turnovers with 23, including a whopping 18 interceptions. Overall this a matchup that should have fantasy owners salivating, although the Jaguars defense has been good enough this season to warrant consideration regardless of who they are playing.

      Heath (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Heath was a limited participant in practice this week and appears to be nearing a return after missing three straight games. The 24-year-old will likely be a game-day decision, with Angelo Blackson and Carlos Watkins slated for increased snaps if he cannot play.

      Defensive end Joel Heath continues to battle a knee injury and is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Cardinals.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Heath has missed the last three games but could provide a boost to a defensive front decimated by injuries. The Texans were picked apart by Jared Goff and the Rams in Week 10, but have a much more appealing matchup against Blaine Gabbert and the Cardinals on Sunday. DE Jadeveon Clowney will hopefully feast against an Arizona offensive line that has given up 26 sacks this season, and now has a new quarterback under center. At full strength this game would have Houston in line to lay down a beating and be one of the top fantasy defenses of the week, but given the injuries this should simply remain a good option for streaming purposes.

      The Broncos starting defense is fully healthy heading into Sunday's game against the Bengals.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Tom Brady and the Patriots made it two consecutive poor performances for the Broncos defense, as opponents have scored 92 points over the past two games. Not all of the points have been given up by the defense, but it still marks the unit's worst two games of the season. The Bengals offense has struggled throughout the season and is averaging only 16.6 points and a league worst 274 yards per game. The Broncos have struggled to force turnovers this season (five INTs, two fumbles), but the Bengals are third-worst in the league with 17 giveaways, making this a prime matchup for a bounce-back performance for the Denver defense.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Slater sustained the injury in last Sunday's win over the Broncos and was unable to practice this week. The 32-year-old has battled hamstring issues for much of the season and the Patriots will miss his presence on special teams.

      Lane is set to start at cornerback going forward, Brady Henderson of ESPN.com reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Weeks after returning to the Seahawks after a rescinded trade due to a failed physical, Lane will now be the starting left corner back in place of the injured Richard Sherman. Justin Coleman was another candidate for the role, but will instead remain the nickelback. The 27-year-old recorded two tackles in his return to action last week.

      Swaim (knee) is listed as questionable for Sunday's game against the Eagles, Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: Swaim was a limited participant in practice this week after sitting out last Sunday's loss to the Falcons. Blake Jarwin would fill in as the Cowboys' No. 3 tight end again if Swaim is unable to suit up.

      McKenzie will be inactive for the Broncos' Week 11 matchup against the Bengals, Troy Renck of Denver 7 News reports.

      Read Analysis

      Analysis: It is unclear why the Broncos have opted to sideline McKenzie, but he has lost fumbles in two of the previous three weeks. Jordan Taylor will return punts in the rookie's absence.
