The focus now turns to Week 11 with the Buffalo Bills and Denver Broncos playing on Monday night. These are some of the top headlines from Monday with an eye towards the upcoming week.

De'Von Achane could return as early as Week 11

The Miami Dolphins have one of the best passing games in the NFL with Tua Tagovailoa, Tyreek Hill and Jaylen Waddle. They could also be getting back a running back as early as Sunday who will be a factor down the stretch for fantasy football.

De'Von Achane is one of the fastest running backs in the NFL and that speed was on full display starting in Week 3 when he had 203 rushing yards and two touchdowns. He would rattle off two more straight games with over 100 rushing yards and three touchdowns.

Achane would suffer a knee injury that landed him on injured reserve and forced him to miss the last four games. However, the Dolphins opened the practice window on Monday and that is a good indication that he could be activated for Sunday's game against the Las Vegas Raiders.

The question now is how the work in the backfield is split as Raheem Mostert has been productive with an average of 73 rushing yards per game and three touchdowns in Achane's absence. It will be tough to keep the rookie off the field and he should be in fantasy football lineups right away.
