Dynasty Fantasy Football Six Pack: Week 11 Storylines to Watch

Corey Spala

The snow is here. Week 11 is here. Six storylines are here. Let’s jump right into it.

Saturday on Sunday

The Colts are coming off a win and Jeff Saturday is 1-0 as a head coach. The Eagles are coming off their first loss of the season. This will be an interesting matchup to watch. Saturday has named Matt Ryan as his starting quarterback, and this benefits certain players more. I am looking at you, Parris Campbell.

We can truly see how good of a coach Saturday is with this tough matchup. The Eagles’ run game has struggled without Jordan Davis. They brought in two veteran defensive linemen this week (Linval Joseph and Ndamukong Suh) which makes sense going up against Jonathan Taylor. I will be interested to see the game plan and how Saturday moves the ball around. This could also be a 30+ touch game for Taylor.


Is this the week Elijah Moore makes his statement game? The Jets announced they will move him to the slot. He dominated the slot in college – from 2019-2020 he had the most yards from the slot and had the highest Pro Football Focus grade in his class.

This makes you wonder why they wanted him to be an outside receiver but I digress. Head coach Robert Saleh mentioned this is not an exclusive move, just a way to find more opportunities for the second-year receiver. I like this a lot, but I am a noted Moore truther.

At the end of the day, the starting quarterback is still Zach Wilson. I would feel a lot more confident with Joe Flacco under center.

New Starter in Town

The Commanders named Taylor Heinicke as their starting quarterback despite Carson Wentz‘s return. Kudos to him and he has earned this job. He seems to have won over the locker room and they are coming off a strong week ten victory against the Eagles. Momentum is a strong variable and they look to continue their ride against the Texans.

Terry McLaurin looks to continue to dominate with his new quarterback. He has a 30% target share with him compared to 16% with Wentz. The running backs will continue to be variable and I guess that includes Curtis Samuel too?

Sitting at the bottom of their division, the Commanders look to have a strong finish to their season. They are currently 5-5 and a strong stretch could find them fighting for a wild card birth.

Big Chief

The Chiefs may have found their saving grace. Kadarius Toney has magically recovered from his hamstring injury and is looking like the playmaker he was at Florida. The Chiefs have injuries to the wide receiver room and Toney stands atop ready for an increased role this week.

Andy Reid will continue to scheme out opportunities for his players. This was the biggest allure when the Chiefs traded for Toney. Coming off a strong week nine performance, Toney should have a potentially big game against the Chargers.

The Chiefs wanted him on their team and it is likely he will continue to be a factor moving forward. He was once a great buy low and is now looking to be a tougher piece to acquire.


Justin Fields. I need to keep mentioning him. He is on pace to set records and the Bears have recently placed running back Khalil Herbert on injured reserve. Fields is only 457 yards behind the single-season quarterback rushing record set by Lamar Jackson (1,206).

The important factor in Fields’ rushing production is from designed runs. This offense is exploiting his playmaking ability. Do not let this fool you, he is a great passer. Do not label him a running back. The Bears are scheming the playbook that allows Fields to make plays happen – through the air and ground.

Fields is looking like a superstar.

Injured Wide Receivers: Notes and Returning Soon

Keenan Allen, Mike Williams, and Ja’Marr Chase are notable players who may be returning soon. The Chargers duo may play this week while Chase may next week. Cooper Kupp landed on injured reserve for minimally four weeks. Jerry Jeudy is considered day-to-day with his ankle injury. Marquise Brown has been practicing and has a chance to play this week (Monday).

I do want to note AJ Brown and his minor ankle injury. He had a noticeable limp following their previous game. They now play six days removed and hopefully he will not be a decoy this Sunday.

Make sure to stay on top of the injury news with the playoffs approaching in your leagues. It will be tough to not start your studs, but they also need to have positive indications of usage or how many snaps they may be playing.


What more can really be said? You have been defeated this year or are looking strong. The only thing we can do is just accept the season for what it is for us. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the football games.

If you want to do dynasty transactions, that is obviously the right thing to do. I hate to bore you all with the typical sell veterans and acquire draft picks or young talent. If hearing this helps then it does, if it sounds like a broken record, well, it is.

Cheers to week 11.
