  Bengals | Joe Burrow lands on IR    Mon Nov 23, 04:03 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow (knee) was placed on the Reserve/Injured list Monday, Nov. 23.

Footballguys view: Burrow will miss the rest of the 2020 season and began a long road back. He'll have to have surgeries to repair the damage and then get ready for the start of the 2021 season. There's a chance that he misses time at the beginning of next year but obviously we're too far away to know that for sure.

  Panthers | Teddy Bridgewater set to practice Wednesday    Mon Nov 23, 03:28 PM

Carolina Panthers QB Teddy Bridgewater (knee) reportedly felt good and got through his pregame warmup without issue in Week 11, but head coach Matt Rhule opted to go with backup P.J. Walker anyway. Rhule told reporters Monday, Nov. 23, that he expects Bridgewater to return to a full practice Wednesday, Nov. 25.

Footballguys view: Bridgewater was close to playing but they ended up giving him a week of rest. Walker started and the team won easy. Bridgewater should be out there at practice and things look good for his availability in Week 12. The Panthers travel to battle the Vikings on Sunday.

  Bengals | Brandon Allen, Quinton Spain promoted    Mon Nov 23, 03:10 PM

Cincinnati Bengals QB Brandon Allen and OG Quinton Spain were signed off the practice squad Monday, Nov. 23.

Footballguys view: The Bengals need another arm with Joe Burrow (knee) done for the year. Ryan Finley is the starter going forward. Allen has starting experience, last year with the Broncos, but he should be the backup to Finley for the rest of the 2020 season.

  Bengals | Joe Burrow diagnosed with multiple tears    Mon Nov 23, 02:16 PM

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow (knee) was diagnosed with a torn anterior cruciate ligament and medial collateral ligament in his left knee Sunday, Nov. 22, according to multiple sources.

Footballguys view: Tough news for the young quarterback here. Burrow also reportedly suffered other structural issues in his knee as well, per ESPN's Adam Schefter. This injury will require months of recovery and it puts Burrow's availability for the beginning of the 2021 season in question.

  Dolphins | Tua Tagovailoa remains the starter    Mon Nov 23, 09:46 AM

Miami Dolphins QB Tua Tagovailoa will remain the team's starter in Week 12 against the New York Jets.

Footballguys view: Tagovailoa was under pressure all day on Sunday. The Broncos sacked him six times and the rookie struggled under duress. The team pulled him and Ryan Fitzpatrick came in and almost won the game, driving the team down the field only to throw a pick in the end zone trying to tie up the contest. Tagovailoa has a much better matchup against the Jets in Week 12.

  Bengals | Joe Burrow at least tore ACL    Mon Nov 23, 08:14 AM

Updating previous reports, Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow (knee) was given an initial diagnosis of a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee, and he'll undergo tests to see if there's more damage. His season is over.

Footballguys view: Bad news for the Bengals...and for NFL fans here. Burrow was fun to watch but there was also some trepidation for his safety behind that Bengals offensive line. This injury will take surgeries and months to recover from. His status for the beginning of the 2021 season is in question. Ryan Finley takes over as the starting quarterback with Burrow out of action.

  Saints | Taysom Hill runs for pair of touchdowns    Sun Nov 22, 07:20 PM

New Orleans Saints QB Taysom Hill completed 18-of-23 passes for 233 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions in Week 11 against the Atlanta Falcons and he ran 10 times for a game-high 51 yards and two touchdowns in his first NFL start.

Footballguys view: The Saints made an effort to keep Hill in the pocket as a passer and after a slow start, he had a solid second half. His two rushing scores made him a huge fantasy hit and he'll be starting QB1 consideration against the Broncos next week. He should be a waiver wire pickup if he wasn't already.

Atlanta Falcons QB Matt Ryan completed 19-of-37 passes for 232 yards, no touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 11 against the New Orleans Saints.

Footballguys view: Ryan was under pressure all day from the Saints defense and ineffective with Julio Jones on the sidelines for most of the game. He won't be a viable play in 1QB leagues against the Raiders next week unless Jones can go.

  Texans | Deshaun Watson accounts for three TDs    Sun Nov 22, 06:23 PM

Houston Texans QB Deshaun Watson went 28-for-37 for 344 yards and two touchdowns against the New England Patriots in Week 11. He also rushed for 36 yards and one touchdown on six carries during the game.

Footballguys view: Watson was barely under pressure all day even though Laremy Tunsil was out. He is playing at top form going into a Thanksgiving game at Detroit.

  Browns | Baker Mayfield fairly quiet in victory    Sun Nov 22, 05:36 PM

Cleveland Browns QB Baker Mayfield completed just 12-of-22 passes for 204 yards, no touchdowns and no interceptions with six runs for nine yards in Week 11 against the Philadelphia Eagles. He also fumbled twice with one lost.

Footballguys view: That's just how the Browns like it. They leaned on the defense and running game and Mayfield got the offense off to a viable start with a strong first drive. He a bottom of the barrel fantasy option, even in 2QB/Superflex leagues, but Mayfield could be starting his first playoff game in January. He'll face the Jaguars next week.

  Patriots | Cam Newton finishes with 365 yards    Sun Nov 22, 05:32 PM

  Panthers | P.J. Walker throws for 258 yards    Sun Nov 22, 05:01 PM

Carolina Panthers QB P.J. Walker went 24-for-34 for 258 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Detroit Lions in Week 11.

Footballguys view: Walker could have had a huge game but he made two terrible decisions in goal to go situations and threw easy interceptions. He showed a good arm and calm processing, and didn't rely on his running ability. He'll be a good pickup in 2QB/Superflex leagues if Teddy Bridgewater can't go vs. Minnesota, although Bridgewater was supposedly close to playing this week.

  Eagles | Carson Wentz so-so on soggy afternoon    Sun Nov 22, 05:00 PM

Philadelphia Eagles QB Carson Wentz completed 21-of-35 passes for 235 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions in Week 11 against the Cleveland Browns while also gaining 10 rushing yards in a game played in a steady rain.

Footballguys view: The worst plays of the afternoon by the Eagles offense probably weren't on Wentz, but his confidence was clearly shaken and the Eagles weren't really in this game in the second half. He's still a first place quarterback but faces a rallying Seahawks defense next week and is only of interest in 2QB/Superflex leagues.

  Lions | Matthew Stafford finishes with 178 yards    Sun Nov 22, 03:46 PM

Detroit Lions QB Matthew Stafford went 18-for-33 for 178 yards, zero touchdowns and zero interceptions against the Carolina Panthers in Week 11.

Footballguys view: The Lions offense was missing some key pieces, but it was still a low point for them and Stafford. We can't say how much Stafford's thumb affected him, but it was the kind of game that kills whatever hope we have for this offense to create any fantasy overachievers, even heading into a Thanksgiving matchup with the Texans.

Cincinnati Bengals QB Joe Burrow (leg) was carted off the field after suffering an apparent leg injury during the Week 11 game.

Footballguys view: Burrow was bent awkwardly and folded to the ground. It seems likely that we won't see him again this season. Ryan Finley is in for the Bengals, but this takes all of the wind out of the sails of this offense.
