4.) DJ Moore vs. Detroit Lions

The last three games for Chicago Bears’ wide receiver DJ Moore have not been his greatest stretch in terms of fantasy. While Moore was targeted 9 times last week against the Carolina Panthers, his overall production has dropped since his Week 5, 3-touchdown game against the Washington Commanders. He has only eclipsed double digit points once in the last weeks and now he will have to find a way to get going against the Detroit Lions. 

Justin Fields is expected to make his return back into the lineup which gives Moore a higher ceiling. However, the defense for the Lions (outside of their 41-38 win last week against the Chargers), has not given up a ton of big plays this season. Chicago’s offense is outmatched by Detroit’s defense which puts Moore in a tricky situation to be a playmaker in Week 11. If you plan on starting Moore, it may be best to put him in the flex spot or search for other options.
