Eleven games are on the main fantasy football slate for Week 11 this Sunday afternoon, giving players on DraftKings and another chance for players to compete for a million-dollar top prize in the $3.5M Fantasy Football Millionaire contest. We’ll track that contest throughout the day and keep you up to date on the leading entries along with the highlights from around the NFL.
You can also find coverage throughout the day on The Dream Stream where Leaderboard Live will keep you up to speed and offer analysis for all the big plays and injuries throughout Sunday.
The games in the late window delivered some of the best scoring performances of the week including a pair of monster games from star WRs Adam Thielen ($6,300; 35.3 DKFP) and Keenan Allen ($7,400; 38.5 DKFP), who pushed an entry from ‘Wynson’ into the top spot in the Milly Maker. That entry also hit with the chalk on Dalvin Cook ($9,000; 29.0 DKFP) and Taysom Hill ($4,800; 25.42 DKFP) and had a nice differentiator with Ceedee Lamb ($5,000; 16.6 DKFP) and the Browns D/ST ($3,000; 20 DKFP) — both owned in under 10% of lineups.
‘Manwiththegoldengun’ in third place was hoping for more when the Packers-Colts game went into overtime, but Aaron Jones ($7,200; 17.1 DKFP) didn’t get a chance to help him close the gap. In second place, ‘cfhninety’ had a completely different lineup build, highlighted by Deshaun Watson ($6,500; 34.36 DKFP), Curtis Samuel ($4,700; 21.4 DKFP) and the productive Panthers D/ST ($2,700; 17 DKFP). That entry was let down, though, by Miles Sanders ($6,900; 10.1 DKFP) and finished under 4.0 DKFP out of first place.

Fantasy Football Highlights
4 p.m. ET games — Second Half
In the four games in the late window, there were definitely plenty of fireworks. Even the Jets put up fantasy points in the second half with Breshad Perriman ($4,300; 13.4 DKFP) hauling in a 49-yard score to open the third quarter. Don’t worry, though, the Chargers still kept things comfortable with a Justin Herbert ($6,800; 30.74 DKFP) pass to Keenan Allen ($7,400; 38.5 DKFP), who was the highest scoring WR on the entire slate today with 16 catches for 145 yards and his touchdown. The Jets kept coming, though, with Frank Gore ($4,100; 15.1 DKFP) rushing for a touchdown and Chris Herndon ($2,700; 11.2 DKFP) catching a touchdown from Joe Flacco ($5,000; 15.4 DKFP) to close to within a score. However, the Jets still fell 34-28 to stay in the top position in the NFL Draft with their 0-10 record.
In the matchup of young QBs in Denver, Drew Lock ($5,400; 12.1 DKFP) got a second touchdown run from Melvin Gordon ($5,100; 19.4 DKFP) to take a 20-10 lead over Tua Tagovailoa ($5,800; 7.32 DKFP) and the Dolphins. Tua was later pulled in favor of Ryan Fitzpatrick ($5,000; 4.28 DKFP), although coach Brian Flores said he would be the starter next week despite being pulled for poor performance. Fitzpatrick was leading the Dolphins for the potential tying score when he threw the pick in the highlight below. Denver held on to win, 20-13.
The Vikings trailed the Cowboys 16-7 at halftime, but they came out firing in the second half with Adam Thielen ($6,300; 35.3 DKFP) making his own highlight-reel catch for a touchdown in the highlight below and also posting over 100 yards. He hauled in another score at the start of the fourth quarter to give the Vikings a 21-16 lead. Dallas answered back, though, with a 42-yard touchdown run from Tony Pollard ($5,600; 12.0 DKFP) that put them up 24-21 after a two-point conversion. Minnesota took the lead back with a Justin Jefferson ($6,000; 17.6 DKFP) touchdown, giving Kirk Cousins ($6,200; 26.96 DKFP) three passing touchdowns on the day and over 300 yards. The see-saw affair continued with Andy Dalton ($5,300; 20.32 DKFP) hitting Dalton Schultz ($3,600; 12.5 DKFP) with just under two minutes left to put the Cowboys back ahead, 31-28. Not only was that the first touchdown in NFL history where the last name of the passer was the exact same as the first name of the receiver, but it also ended up being the game-winner. Kirk Cousins ran out of magic at that point, and after Minnesota turned it over on downs, the Cowboys got a big road win to make the NFC East even crazier, as every team now has three wins.
The Packers and Colts continued their high-scoring duel in Indy, as well, although the scoring did slow down a little in the second half. The Colts started things off with a FG, and then got another touchdown from Philip Rivers ($5,600; 22.72 DKFP), who this time found Jack Doyle ($2,500; 7.6 DKFP) in the end zone. The Colts tied it up with another FG to knot the score at 28. The Packers gave it right back with a fumble on the ensuing kickoff in the highlight below. They converted that fumble into a FG in a little bit of foreshadowing. The Packers drove down the field with very little time left at the end of regulation and kicked a FG to send the game into overtime, but in overtime Marquez Valdes-Scantling ($4,800; 7.5 DKFP) lost a fumble in the play below. The Colts kicked a 39-yard FG and walked off winners, 34-31 after their impressive second half rally.
4 p.m. ET games — First Half
At the start of the late games, the Jets got out to an early 7-0 lead behind a touchdown from La’Mical Perine ($4,400). Joe Flacco ($5,000) gave it back, though, with a pick-six touchdown in the play below. Justin Herbert ($6,800) added to the Jets’ woes with a pair of passing touchdowns — one to Mike Williams ($5,100) and one to Hunter Henry ($4,600) — and the Chargers took a 24-6 lead to halftime.
In Denver, Tua Tagovailoa ($5,800) gave the Dolphins the early lead with a touchdown pass to DeVante Parker ($5,700), but Drew Lock ($5,400) answered back with a nice drive that ended with a touchdown from Melvin Gordon ($5,100) to tie the game, 7-7. The teams traded field goals, and Brandon McManus knocked through a 47-yard FG to go up 13-10 at halftime.
The Packers and Colts played one of the most interesting matchups of teams with playoff aspirations in the late window. After a turnover, the Packers struck first on a touchdown from Aaron Rodgers ($7,000) to Robert Tonyan ($3,200). The Colts struck back, though, after a turnover of their own with a touchdown strike from Philip Rivers ($5,600) to Michael Pittman Jr. ($4,500). Aaron Jones ($7,200) put the Packers back ahead, though, with a two-yard touchdown with about 10 minutes left in the first half, and Davante Adams ($8,600) continued to be a reliable weekly contributor with the touchdown in the highlight below. Trey Burton ($3,100) had a touchdown before halftime, but the Packers answered back again with a touchdown pass from Rodgers to Jamaal Williams ($5,700).
In the other late game, the Vikings hosted the Cowboys in Minneapolis, and Andy Dalton ($5,300) actually gave Dallas the lead with a early touchdown pass to Ezekiel Elliott ($6,500). The Vikings came back, though, with Dalvin Cook ($9,000) doing his thing and finding the end zone once again to put the Vikings up 7-6. Ceedee Lamb ($5,000) put the Cowboys back in the lead with this “Catch of the Year” contender, and Dallas led 16-7 at halftime.
1 p.m. ET games — Second Half
As the second half of the early games got started, the Eagles got a turnover and a quick strike touchdown to tie the game against the Browns at 7-7. Cleveland made a FG and tacked on a safety by sacking Carson Wentz ($5,700; 16.4 DKFP), to go up 12-7. The Browns’ running game took over from there, with Nick Chubb ($7,000; 14.4 DKFP) bringing the power run in the highlight below and Kareem Hunt ($6,700; 9.1 DKFP) getting a touchdown before a Cody Parkey’s FG put Cleveland up 22-10. Wentz hit Dallas Goedert ($3,800; 18.7 DKFP) for a late meaningless touchdown, which didn’t impact the outcome but did help their fantasy totals.
In a physical AFC matchup between the Ravens and the Titans, Lamar Jackson ($7,300; 17.54 DKFP) and the Ravens opened up a 20-10 lead with a touchdown with a touchdown pass to Mark Andrews ($4,900; 20.6 DKFP) to go up 21-10 in the third quarter. A pair of Titans field goals set up A.J. Brown ($7,200; 16.2 DKFP) for a touchdown and a two-point conversion from Ryan Tannehill ($6,100; 22.86 DKFP), which gave Tennessee a 24-21 lead. Baltimore tied the game but wasn’t able to do anything with their first possession in overtime. Derrick Henry ($8,000; 23.2 DKFP) put the exclamation point on the Titans’ win with the run below as Tennessee got a very important 30-24 victory to bounce back from their tough loss to the Colts last week.
At FedEx Field, big injuries for QBs continued to be a theme, but this time it was visiting QB Joe Burrow ($5,500; 12.32 DKFP), who went down with what appeared to be a significant knee injury. Shortly after Burrow’s departure, Alex Smith ($5,300; 9.34 DKFP) hit Steven Sims Jr. ($3,000; 10.3 DKFP) for the go-ahead touchdown as Washington went up 13-9. After a Dustin Hopkins FG, Washington walked away with a 20-9 win over the Bengals, whose bigger loss was definitely their star rookie QB.
The Panthers continued to pour it on the Lions, going up 14-0 on the first touchdown pass of the season from P.J. Walker ($4,800; 12.2 DKFP) to Curtis Samuel ($4,700; 21.4 DKFP). After two FGs, the Panthers’ DST ($2,70; 17 DKFP) finished off an impressive shutout to win 20-0.
The Steelers only had a FG on offense for most of the second half, until Eric Ebron ($4,000; 13.6 DKFP) caught a touchdown from Ben Roethlisberger ($6,700; 17.68 DKFP) in the fourth quarter. In the comfortable win for Pittsburgh, Diontae Johnson ($5,900; 26.1 DKFP) had a dozen catches and finished with over 100 yards.
Trailing 21-10 at halftime, the Patriots got a touchdown from Cam Newton ($6,200) to Damiere Byrd ($3,500) to close to within one score. After the teams traded field goals, New England’s rally again came up just short, and the Texans held on for a 27-20 victory. Deshaun Watson ($6,500; 34.36 DKFP) still had a monster game despite a quiet second half and Jordan Akins ($2,500; 13.3 DKFP) was a nice value.
The Saints got a pair of rushing touchdowns from Taysom Hill ($4,800) in the second half to take a 24-9 lead over the Falcons. Hill relied heavily on Michael Thomas ($7,300; 22.4 DKFP), who had over 100 yards, and the Saints’ DST ($3,200; 16 DKFP) had eight sacks as they terrorized Matt Ryan ($6,300; 7.28 DKFP) all day long.
1 p.m. ET games — First Half
The first touchdown of the early slate came from Ryan Tannehill ($6,100) to Jonnu Smith ($4,700) in the highlight below as the Titans took a 7-0 lead over the Ravens. After a pair of Justin Tucker field goals, J.K. Dobbins ($5,100) got the touchdown and the two-point conversion to put Baltimore up 14-7. A Titans field goal made it 14-10 at halftime.
Damien Harris ($5,700) gave the Patriots a 7-0 lead with a nine-yard run, but the Texans answered with a three-yard touchdown pass from Deshaun Watson ($6,500) to Randall Cobb ($3,600). After a Patriots FG, Watson had the powerful run in the highlight below to put the Texans ahead, 14-10. Just before halftime, Watson threw his third touchdown of the game, this time finding Keke Coutee ($3,000) to put Houston up 21-10 at halftime.
In the NFC South matchup that everyone was watching to see the debut of Taysom Hill ($4,800) as a starter, the Falcons took the early lead with a field goal on their opening drive. The Saints tied it up with a field goal of their own, but Younghoe Koo hit a pair of long FGs to give the Falcons a 9-3 lead. Just before halftime, though, Alvin Kamara ($9,200) put the Saints up with the touchdown in the highlight below.
With Teddy Bridgewater (knee) sidelined, P.J. Walker ($4,800) got the start for the Panthers, and a one-yard score from Mike Davis ($6,800) gave Carolina an early 7-0 lead over Detroit. The Panthers’ DST ($2,700) had a shutout at halftime, keeping the Lions off the scoreboard to go to the locker room with a 7-0 lead.
The Browns thought they had the lead after a run from Kareem Hunt ($6,700) but the touchdown was taken off the board after a review. Instead, their first score against the Eagles came from their defense as they picked off Carson Wentz ($5,700), who continues to struggle with costly turnovers for Philadelphia. That was the only score of the first half as the Browns led 7-0 at the midway point.
The Jaguars took an early 3-0 lead over the unbeaten Steelers, but Chris Boswell evened things up just after the start of the second quarter. Chase Claypool ($6,100) got a touchdown later in the second quarter and Benny Snell Jr. ($4,000) vultured a touchdown to put the Steelers up 17-3.
In the nation’s Capital, Antonio Gibson ($5,800) gave Washington the lead with a one-yard score. The No. 1 overall pick from last year’s draft Joe Burrow ($5,500) was trying to answer with a touchdown when he met the No. 2 overall pick from last year’s draft and took a huge hit from Chase Young and fumbled the ball. Burrow bounced back with a touchdown on his next drive, though, finding A.J. Green ($3,600) for Cincinnati’s first score of the day. A missed extra point and a field goal from Reggie Bullock put the Bengals up 9-7 at halftime.
