KC Chiefs lead league in touchdowns of 40+ yards

There is a ton of actionable information in BJ Kissel's '10 Stats to Know' article regarding this week's Chiefs vs. Giants article, but stat No. 10 was the most eye-popping:

"The Chiefs’ offense has scored eight touchdowns of at least 40 yards this season, which leads the league.

"And on the flipside, the Giants defense has given up five touchdowns of at least 40 yards, which is tied for the most in the league."

Fantasy Impact:

A lot of chatter in the fantasy community this week has centered on Travis Kelce's fantastic matchup versus a Giants defense that has allowed a TD to a tight end in every game this season. It's actually a streak that has extended to their last 10 games, which is an NFL record, according to Kissel. The Giants are also allowing 132.6 rushing yards per game—30th in the league.

There's potential for plenty of Chiefs TDs in this game, from players at all skill positions, and Vegas backs that up as the Chiefs are implied to score almost four TDs in this game. It's safe to say fire up all Chiefs in this one. Alex Smith is our No. 3 ranked QB, Kareem Hunt is our No. 1 ranked RB, and Kelce is our No. 1 ranked TE. Kicker Harrison Butker and the Chiefs defense are also top-two options at their respective positions.

49ers will go with the QB who practices better next week

Getting C.J. Beathard healthy (thumb) and getting another week of learning for Jimmy Garoppolo will be important as HC Kyle Shanahan once again intends to institute his week-to-week approach in making a decision on who his starter will be. Like last week, Shanahan indicated that the quarterback who fares better in practice after the bye will start against Seattle.

Asked Monday if watching the film of Beathard's strong showing against the Giants had forced him to reconsider who will start against the Seahawks, Shanahan said nothing had changed, though he left plenty of wiggle room for a change should Garoppolo prove ready to go.

"We'll see how practice goes next week," Shanahan said. "C.J. played pretty well. I thought he had his best game. I think he’s gotten better each week in practice, and I think it showed in the game the most. I thought the guys played around him their best game, too, which definitely makes it easier to keep everyone out there and keep that going. We'll see how Jimmy responds this week. We'll get to work more one-on-one with him, get a little extra practice on Monday and see how it goes. We'll have our game plan done Monday and Tuesday and we’ll start practicing our game plan Wednesday.”

Fantasy Impact:

The story pretty much indicates going with Garoppolo would make the most sense for the team at this point. Unfortunately, the 49ers will play the Seahawks D Week 12, so it will be a tough matchup for either QB. However, it's a home game and the story makes it seem like starting Garoppolo at home could create more buzz and fill some seats. Either way, it looks like this decision is at least a week away from being made.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) took full practice reps again Friday. The upgrade to full practice is a great sign for Sterling Shepard, who along with Evan Engram, will become one of the focal points of the Giants’ passing game.

Giants WR Sterling Shepard (ankle) took limited practice reps Wednesday. In the two games before his injury (in Week 5), Shepard caught 12 passes for 187 yards and a touchdown on 15 targets. With both Odell Beckham and Brandon Marshall out for the year, Shepard and tight end Evan Engram should serve as the primary targets for Eli Manning. It’s not a particularly good matchup against the Rams (No. 7 in WR aFPA), but Shepard’s projected volume should be enough to compensate, provided he can play.

Giants RB Paul Perkins (ribs) practiced fully Wednesday. Perkins should return this week, but his role in the offense remains to be seen as he’s been vastly outplayed by Orleans Darkwa.
