NFL experts predict: Week 11 upset picks, fantasy sleepers, NFC West winner and Cam’s 2021 team
Week 11 of the 2020 NFL schedule features several intriguing matchups among postseason contenders, starting with Thursday night’s NFC West showdown between the Arizona Cardinals (6-3) and the Seahawks (6-3) in Seattle and ending on Monday night with the third team atop the NFC West, the Los Angeles Rams (6-3), visiting the Tampa Bay Buccaneers (7-3).
We also will see Jameis Winston make his debut as a starter for the New Orleans Saints (7-2) as they try to stay ahead of the Bucs in the NFC South.
We asked our experts to pick who will emerge to win the wild West, as well as biggest potential upsets, fantasy football flops and sleepers.
What’s your top upset pick for Week 11?
Mike Clay, fantasy writer: Packers (+2.5) over Colts. Picking the Packers (7-2) feels like cheating, but here we are. Even in a game that was closer than expected this past week, the Packers still reached three offensive touchdowns for the eighth time in nine games this season. The Colts’ defense is terrific, but the offense ranks 24th in touchdowns (28th adjusted for schedule). This should be a close one, but Aaron Rodgers & Co. will get the job done.
Jeremy Fowler, national NFL writer: Cowboys (+7.5) over Vikings. Dallas showed life against Pittsburgh, and the Cowboys will regroup coming off the bye. Minnesota should put up major yards against a maligned Dallas secondary, but that goes both ways. The Cowboys’ receiving trio is still among the league’s most potent, and Andy Dalton’s return will provide some balance for a squeak-it-out win.
