Sunday night's games are a bit of a different beast in fantasy than primetime games on Thursday and Monday. On Thursday, you need to make lineup decisions on a short week, and on Monday's you're usually left without many options as only two teams are left to play. "Sunday Night Football" falls somewhere between the two.

With that in mind, here's some start 'em, sit 'em advice for Sunday's matchup between the Chicago Bears and Los Angeles Rams.

Who to Start in Fantasy Football

Start Tarik Cohen, RB, Chicago Bears: David Montgomery's status is still up in the air, and he could be a game-time decision for this one. With the injury threatening his ability to suit up at all, even if he plays we could see him limited, opening the door for Tarik Cohen to play an expanded role. Cohen also stands to benefit from the Bears being 6-point underdogs on FanDuel Sportsbook. He's averaged 7.4 targets per game in losses compared to 4.5 per game in wins in 2019.

Start Gerald Everett, TE, Los Angeles Rams: Gerald Everett didn't play much of a role in the Rams' offense to start the season, but he's now seen double-digit targets in three of his last five games. He's the only tight end to hit that mark three times since Week 5. The Bears D is a tough matchup, but the tight end position is incredibly thin this week and Everett checks in at TE7 in our Week 11 PPR fantasy football rankings.

Sit Jared Goff, QB, Los Angeles Rams: The Bears have held opposing QBs to the NFL's seventh-fewest fantasy points per game, and they rank seventh against the pass in Football Outsiders' defensive DVOA metric. Jared Goff's play has been shaky this season, ranking 21st among QBs in fantasy points per game, and this matchup makes him a risky play for Week 11.

Sit Josh Reynolds, WR, Los Angeles Rams: Josh Reynolds will continue to play an expanded role with Brandin Cooks on the shelf, but that doesn't mean he's positioned to offer much fantasy value. He's the No. 4 option (at best) in the Rams' receiving game, behind Everett, Cooper Kupp and Robert Woods. Against a top-10 pass D that role is just not significant enough to create much fantasy value.
