Chase Claypool confirmed he is playing through a "bad" case of turf toe. Claypool was tackled with his toe flexed in Week 9. He missed Week 10 but has since resumed practicing in full, and caught five passes for 93 yards in Week 11. He will be a big-play based WR3 for Week 12 vs. Cincinnati's struggling defense.
Cincinnati Bengals DFS Spin
Joe Burrow completed 20-of-29 passes for 148 yards and a touchdown in the Bengals 32-13, Week 11 win over the Raiders. Burrow missed on a few deep attempts to Ja'Marr Chase and was resigned to checking it down on the remainder of his throws, resulting in a lackluster fantasy outing from the second-year passer. Joe Mixon totaling 123 yards and two scores on the ground also hurt Burrow's odds of posting a successful fantasy line. He somewhat salvaged his day with a fourth-quarter score to Chase in the red zone. Burrow gets a tough matchup with the Steelers next week, keeping him outside of the QB1 ranks.
