  • PIT Quarterback #8
    The decision to keep Pickett on the active roster likely stems from the Steelers’ current playoff situation. Sitting at 7-5, the Steelers are second in the AFC North and in the thick of the AFC playoff race. Pickett would be required to miss a minimum of four games if placed on injured reserve, but his recovery is expected to take 2-4 weeks. If Pickett feels ready to play in two weeks, the team would likely prefer to have him back under center. Mitch Trubisky will start in Week 14 against the Patriots and should also play in Week 15 against the Colts, but it’s possible Pickett could return for the final three games of the season to push the Steelers into the postseason.
  • GB Wide Receiver #87
    Doubs was held out of the end zone but made his impact felt by catching four timely balls for a solid 18-yard average. More importantly for his fantasy value moving forward, fellow second-year wide receiver Christian Watson left the game with three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter with what looked like yet another hamstring injury, the previous one of which held him out of action for the first three weeks of the 2023 season. That gives Doubs the inside track to the lead wide receiver role for the Packers as the team heads into their easiest portion of their schedule, just in time for the fantasy playoffs. Managers needing help at wide receiver could do worse than targeting Doubs in a late-season trade.
  • GB Running Back #28
    In typical Dillon fashion, his long run of the game went for just 10 yards as the between-the-tackles grinder did what he could to keep the chains moving. Most importantly for his fantasy expectations moving forward, Dillon saw 19 of the available 22 running back touches on the evening, meaning he will continue to carry back end RB2 upside for as long as lead back Aaron Jones remains out of action. That said, he does not profile as a potential trade target for fantasy managers looking for a late-season push into the playoffs as most of his value will evaporate once Jones returns.
  • GB Quarterback #10
    Love couldn’t miss in the first half as the Packers converted their first two possessions into touchdowns, the first going to rookie tight end Ben Sims for his first professional touchdown and the second going to wide receiver Christian Watson. The third and final possession of the first half made it to the edge of field goal range but the team ultimately decided to punt the ball away to not allow Mahomes a short field should they miss from 57 yards. Whereas the team traded touchdowns for field goals in the first half, the script would flip in the second frame as the Chiefs came storming back into the game, scoring on their first two possessions and coming within a two-point conversion of knotting the game at 21. Two additional field goals and a timely interception would seal the game for the Packers, who now find themselves at .500 for the first time since Week 4. More importantly, the Packers are now well within striking distance of the seventh playoff spot out of the NFC and have one of the league’s easiest remaining strengths of schedule. This win was a solid launching point for their playoff push.
  • KC Wide Receiver #4
    It was the second consecutive contest in which the rookie wide receiver led the team in targets, this time trailing tight end Travis Kelce in yardage. Even so, Rice appears primed for solid contributions as the fantasy season nears the playoffs. He’ll get a difficult test in Week 14 when the Chiefs host the Bills, who will have had additional time to prepare coming off their Week 13 bye.
  • KC Tight End #87
    Kelce was far from the focal point of the offense in the first half, but his production in the first frame dwarfed the one catch he managed in the second half. In fact, Kelce caught his final ball on the first play run from scrimmage in the second half and was completely erased for the remainder of the game. He still did what he could to make his presence felt, most notably serving as the clearing player on fellow tight end Noah Gray’s fourth quarter touchdown. Kelce and the Chiefs fall to 8-4 with the loss and will need to turn things around quickly before they host the Bills in Week 14.
  • KC Running Back #10
    Pacheco was the Chiefs’ most valuable player against the Packers, routinely willing himself to additional yards on the ground by keeping his legs churning through contact. He carried a pile of bodies on three separate occasions, which was the difference in him eclipsing 100 yards on the ground. He also chipped in with three receptions, aided by the absence of Jerick McKinnon. Pacheco and the Chiefs will need to regroup before hosting the Bills in Week 14.
  • KC Quarterback #15
    The Packers held the Chiefs to just two first half field goals and were able to fade a Hail Mary in the waning seconds to hold off Patrick Mahomes and the Chiefs at Lambeau. Kansas City dominated time of possession in the second half after failing to get much going in the first frame, ultimately unable to overcome the first half deficit. Mahomes was not at his best in his first trip to Green Bay as the Chiefs were out-gained by 45 yards on the road. Kansas City falls to 8-4 and face a tough test against a Buffalo Bills team coming off their bye week in Week 14.
  • GB Wide Receiver #9
    It was the best fantasy day of the season for the talented second-year receiver, who made his departure with under three minutes remaining in the fourth quarter sting that much more after fantasy managers finally got a taste of the upside he demonstrated last season. Watson gingerly went to the ground on his final touch of the game, grabbing his hamstring as he gave himself up on an end around. That’s particularly worrisome considering he missed the first three games of the season with a hamstring injury. Fantasy managers will want to keep an eye on his practice status in the coming week.
