Case Keenum solid in Vikings' win over the Rams in Week 11
Minnesota Vikings quarterback Case Keenum completed 27-of-38 passes for 280 yards and 1 touchdown in Sunday's 24-7 win over the Los Angeles Rams.
Keenum took a step in the right direction toward locking down the starting job in Minnesota, throwing for over 280 yards in the third-straight game. It was also his first interception-less game since Week 5. The lone touchdown pass came on a 64-yard pass to Adam Thielen in the fourth quarter.
numberFire's models projected Keenum for 16.6 FanDuel points and he came away with 17.2 on Sunday.
Joe Mixon gets 22 touches in Bengals' Week 11 loss
Cincinnati Bengals running back Joe Mixon rushed 20 times for 49 yards and caught two passes for 0 yards in his team's 20-17 Week 11 win over the Denver Broncos.
Mixon finally got fed like a feature back, but it came in one of the worst possible matchups he could have had. However, the usage was certainly encouraging to see. Cincinnati hosts the Cleveland Browns in Week 12.
Mixon finished Week 11 with 5.9 FanDuel points and -6.10 Rushing Net Expected Points, per numberFire live.
Rams' Jared Goff kept in check by stout Vikings defense on Sunday
Los Angeles Rams quarterback Jared Goff completed 23-of-37 passes for 225 yards in Sunday's 24-7 loss to the Minnesota Vikings.
Goff's production dropped following two-straight games with over 300 yards and 3 touchdowns. He nearly had a touchdown pass if not for Cooper Kupp fumbling on the two-yard line. It was just his second game all season without a touchdown pass, but also his third-straight game with no interceptions.
numberFire's models projected Goff for 19.9 FanDuel points and he manged just 9.8 in Week 11.
Derek Carr throws late TD pass to save Raiders from getting shutout in Week 11
Oakland Raiders quarterback Derek Carr completed 28-of-49 passes for 237 yards, with 1 touchdown and 1 interception in Sunday's 33-8 loss to the New England Patriots.
Carr's streak of 300-yard passing games ends after three weeks as the Raiders offense was lackluster in Mexico. He did connect with Amari Cooper for a 9-yard touchdown pass in the fourth quarter for the Raiders only points of the day.
numberFire's models projected Carr for 22.1 FanDuel points and he disappointed with just 14.5 on Sunday.
Marshawn Lynch efficient in Raiders' Week 11 loss
Oakland Raiders running back Marshawn Lynch rushed 11 times for 67 yards in his team's 33-8 Week 11 loss to the New England Patriots, adding one reception for 10 yards.
Lynch was moving the chains early in this game, but negative game script took him out of the action in the second half. He saw just two second half carries as the Patriots continued to carve up the Oakland defense. The Raiders have a tough matchup against the Denver Broncos in Week 12.
Lynch scored 8.2 FanDuel points in Week 11 and totaled 4.20 Rushing Net Expected Points, per numberFire live.
Tom Brady has big day as Patriots blow past Raiders
New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady completed 30-of-37 passes for 339 yards and 3 touchdowns in Sunday's 33-8 win over the Oakland Raiders.
Brady got the scoring started with redzone touchdown passes to Dion Lewis and Danny Amendola in the first half, before connecting with Brandin Cooks on a 64-yard touchdown in the third quarter. It was a lopsided win, as the Raiders did not even score until they were down by 30-0.
numberFire's models projected Brady for 22.8 FanDuel points and he came away with 25.6 on Sunday.
