Shawn Siegele breaks down some of the biggest performances of Week 11 and discusses the key strategic moves that will determine your 2022 playoff results. 

Offensive trends in 2022 haven’t been particularly conducive to rookie wide receiver scoring, and that made Week 11 even more fun by contrast. Treylon Burks finally arrived on Thursday night and was still overshadowed by a sterling follow-up performance from Christian Watson.

The second-rounders came to play on Sunday. Wan’Dale Robinson caught nine of 13 targets for 100 yards before getting hurt. Although the passes were still generally underneath (8.3 aDOT), Robinson flashed the full range of his talents. He caught several balls well down the field and also finished second on the week with 57 yards after the catch. Unfortunately, his injury has been confirmed as a torn ACL. It’s a blow for the Giants who appeared to have found at least one answer in their extremely limited receiving corps.

That left Skyy Moore as the lone high-profile receiving selection still in search of any type of signature game. Once Kadarius Toney departed on Sunday night – joining JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman as sidelined weapons – the Chiefs had no choice but to push targets on their second-round rookie. He responded with five catches for 65 yards.

While not a big performance in fantasy terms, Moore accounted for more receptions than the rest of the WRs combined and did just enough when paired with the weekly Travis Kelce highlight reel. Two of the catches were especially big. Moore got free for 15 yards on a third-and-7 when they were driving for an eventual 23-20 lead. He later ran a perfect route to snag a 13-yard reception with one minute to go in the game and the Chiefs trailing 27-23.

Things can change quickly in fantasy. A week ago, Toney looked like the long-term solution to Kansas City’s receiving woes, and Moore appeared to be another failed pick in their ongoing attempt to surround Patrick Mahomes with weapons worthy of his greatness. Today it looks like Moore could be the intermediate weapon that allows contemporary passing games to flourish.

Colm Kelly and I broke down these developments and more on our Week 11 reaction episode of RotoViz Overtime.

In the same way that Clyde Edwards-Helaire will always be connected to Jonathan Taylor and Hardman will always be connected to D.K. Metcalf in the minds of Chiefs fans, George Pickens’ career will be of special interest after he slid to Kansas City’s pick at 50 overall only for them to trade down.

What was Pickens up to this week? In today’s article, I’ll look at that and much more from a Bengals/Steelers affair that lived up to AFC North battles of old.
