Jamal Murray, Denver Nuggets (40.2): Despite being a slight violation of the premise of being rostered in fewer than 40 percent of leagues, Murray is worth mentioning as a valuable fantasy prospect, since he can sustain elite scoring benders.

Those trends ran into a highly favorable matchup against New Orleans, as the Saints ranked 30th in YBCT allowed (2.9) and 29th in GBYPA allowed (9.1) in Weeks 6-10.

The combination of those weaknesses ended up working in Washington’s favor, as Jay Gruden’s team posted a 48.3 percent mark in my good blocking rate (GBR) metric that gauges how often an offense gives its ball carriers quality run blocking. That was the second-highest GBR Washington has posted this season. The 7.9 GBYPA Washington posted against the Saints was also the second-highest total they have tallied this year in that category.

Raiders quarterback Derek Carr’s deep pass to Johnny Holton bounced off the receiver’s shoulder pad and into the hands of Patriots defensive back Duron Harmon for an interception at New England’s 16-yard line. Holton was hurt on the play but jogged off the field on his own power after some attention from trainers. He entered concussion protocol but later returned to the game.

While Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield shined, running backs like Notre Dame’s Josh Allen and Georgia’s Nick Chubb struggled on Saturday.

With several marquee matchups, NFL teams had numerous scouts in the field to watch the top prospects face elite competition.

Against the nation’s sixth-ranked defense, Mayfield had his way while leading Oklahoma to a 38-20 victory over TCU. Mayfield was 18 of 27 for 333 yards and three touchdowns and has all-but locked up the Heisman Trophy.

Touchdown, Carolina. Christian McCaffrey takes a handoff near the goal line, makes a pair of Dolphins tacklers miss and runs into the end zone to put Carolina ahead 10-0. That Panthers’ drive ate up 6:17 of game time.

Taurean Prince, Atlanta Hawks (30.3): The wing position is decidedly shallow past the starting tier, which means the market should appreciate a productive player such as Prince, who ranks 14th among small forwards on the Player Rater over the past two weeks.

Marcus Morris, Boston Celtics (34.0): What Morris has lost in minutes and touches in transitioning from Detroit to Boston, he’s countering with a rewarding spike in scoring efficiency. The savvy ball movement in Boston facilitates higher-percentage offensive opportunities for key rotation contributors such as Morris.

Derek Carr’s fantasy managers had some hope that things were getting better for him of late. He came into the Week 11 contest against the New England Patriots having thrown for 300 or more yards in three straight games and was only a couple of games removed from having posted 30.2 points against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 7.

Unfortunately, Carr didn’t build on that performance, as he averaged only 13.1 points in the two contests that followed the Chiefs’ matchup.

Back to the scene of the crime: Some 13 months ago, on the same field, these teams played a 6-6 tie that made fans question what was wrong with the quality of play in this league. Good thing, then, that the home team is playing its backup quarterback in Drew Stanton, and the visitor just got held to one touchdown and missed three field goals in a loss to Washington. It’s fair to wonder whether the Cardinals running Adrian Peterson 37 times, as if he’s in his early 20s again, is an ideal offensive strategy. (For them, it might be.)

The Falcons force a three-and-out as Doug Baldwin drops a pass on third down. Seattle challenges the call but the ruling on the field is upheld and the Seahawks punt for the first time with 8:57 to play.

Jay Ajayi (1.4 OTD) ranks fifth in the NFL with 138 carries but has yet to score a touchdown this season. Ajayi was traded to the Eagles on Tuesday, but his scoring struggles point to the overall ineffectiveness of the Miami offense. The Dolphins are the only team yet to run the ball at least once inside the opponent’s 5-yard line (each of the 31 other teams have at least two).

Klemko sent me the menu and I looked it over and said, sure, I’ll go. Uncle’s is a pretty hot spot. We waited about 30 minutes for a table—actually three chairs at a long table, because every chair in the packed place gets used throughout the night.

I told Klemko the spicy chicken ramen looked good … but I could do without the soft boiled egg part of it. “That’s the best part!” he said. I went egg-less. The food was really good, particularly the shrimp bun and the ramen, with its noodles and sprouts and tender mouth-burning chicken.

It is also a new way to unlock Griffin’s expert playmaking — another small method of regaining some of what went out the door with Paul. Once defenders respect Griffin from deep, they’ll have to run out on him harder — leaving them vulnerable to Griffin’s pump-and-drive game:

If he shoots like this, the Clippers may not need him to.

In addition, Sellers is the only player since 1992, the earliest year for which we have target data, who had fewer targets (16) in a season with at least seven receiving scores. Fuller’s big-play ability is a huge boon to the aggressive Watson, and while Fuller’s touchdown success is sure to regress to the mean in coming weeks, Watson maximizes Fuller’s weekly upside and the team has a pretty favorable remaining schedule, beginning with an excellent matchup with the Indianapolis Colts in Week 9.

Rodriguez had a head start on Ortiz in the TV world.

Going into Week 7, before he had to miss the game against his former team, the Titans, with an ankle injury, McCourty was Pro Football Focus’ highest-graded overall corner this season. Given he’s 30, it would merely be a short-term move for the Chiefs, but one that would also net another developmental QB project in return. Marcus Peters and McCourty would give the Chiefs one of the league’s best cornerback duos and erase a big weakness.

As much as Andy Reid and the Chiefs’ coaching staff have raved about Mahomes and his arm, Kizer’s skill set is better suited for a Smith successor. Mahomes needs to be on the field somewhere soon, and the Browns might as well take a chance on a fourth QB. It’s clear they have already lost patience with Kizer.

As I talked about last week, there is a complete culture change under Brian Kelly from last season. It’s neat to see successful leadership at work. Brandon Wimbush continues to improve as a passer and Josh Adams has impressed me lately at running back. Confidence is growing for this team, as it took care of business at home against NC State on Saturday.

If the Astros win: Get the party started in H-Town! Over the past 55 years, Houston’s baseball experience has included the opening of the wondrous Astrodome in 1965, 12 postseason appearances, a pennant in both the National and American leagues and a list of stars that includes Nolan Ryan, Jose Cruz, Cesar Cedeno, J.R. Richard, Mike Scott, Roy Oswalt and the Killer B’s: Craig Biggio, Jeff Bagwell and Lance Berkman. One thing Houstonians have never seen: a World Series championship. And there wouldn’t be a more appropriate time for it than in the aftermath of the devastation from Hurricane Harvey.bills_012
