Raiders' Hunter Renfrow: Career-best day in Dallas

Renfrow caught eight of nine targets for 134 yards in a 36-33 overtime win over the Cowboys on Thanksgiving. He also gained two yards on his only carry. Renfrow was Derek Carr's favorite target on the day, especially once tight end Darren Waller (knee) was forced to exit, and the third-year slot receiver not only set a season high in catches, he established a new single-game personal best in yards while also setting new career highs for receptions (64) and receiving yards (658) on the year, in only 11 games. If Waller misses additional time or isn't 100 percent, Renfrow figures to be Carr's top option again in Week 13 against Washington.

CeeDee Lamb to primarily play slot when Cowboys healthy

Dallas Cowboys wide receiver CeeDee Lamb will operate as the primary slot receiver when Michael Gallup plays, per Bob Sturm of The Athletic. Gallup played last week for the first time since Week 1 and Lamb hauled in 6 catches (7 targets) for 94 yards and 2 touchdowns while running nearly 70 percent of his pass routes from the slot. Prior to that, Lamb had run just 23 percent of his routes from the slot this season. Sturm describes Lamb as the most "lethal inside receiver in the NFL" and a "mismatch nightmare against slot corners." Lamb and the Cowboys have a plus draw in Week 11 against the Kansas City Chiefs in a likely shootout.

Jarvis Landry - Week 11 Outlook for Fantasy Football

28 mins agoCleveland Browns wide receiver Jarvis Landry (knee) got in two limited practices after a DNP on Wednesday this week as he gears up for a Week 11 showdown against the Detroit Lions. Landry has been dealing with a knee injury for much of the year but he is expected to be out there when the Browns take on the Lions on Sunday. That being said, Landry and the passing game might not be very busy with the run-first Browns installed as 11.5-point home favorites. Landry hasn't done much in the stat column this season and the projected game script does not favor a slot receiver dependent on high volume such as himself this weekend. Treat him as a low-end flex option in Week 11.--Matt T - RotoBaller.
