Week 11 Rankings (2020): Top 25 Quarterbacks

It was a poorly timed injury for Drew Brees, who likely would’ve been a Top 10 option had he not gotten hurt. Luckily for fantasy owners bye weeks don’t have a significant impact this week (outside of Josh Allen), leaving ample opportunity to find a replacement. Who should be considered a strong play? Who may you want to pass on? Let’s take a look at how things currently look for Week 11:

  1. Kyler Murray – Arizona Cardinals – at Seattle
  2. Patrick Mahomes – Kansas City Chiefs – at Las Vegas
  3. Russell Wilson – Seattle Seahawks – vs. Arizona
  4. Justin Herbert – Los Angeles Chargers – vs. New York Jets
  5. Ben Roethlisberger – Pittsburgh Steelers – at Jacksonville
  6. Lamar Jackson – Baltimore Ravens – vs. Tennessee
  7. Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers – at Indianapolis
  8. Teddy Bridgewater – Carolina Panthers – vs. Detroit
  9. Matt Ryan – Atlanta Falcons – at New Orleans
  10. Cam Newton – New England Patriots – at Houston
  11. Jameis Winston – New Orleans Saints – vs. Atlanta
  12. Tom Brady – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – vs. Los Angeles Rams
  13. Carson Wentz – Philadelphia Eagles – at Cleveland
  14. Deshaun Watson – Houston Texans – vs. New England
  15. Tua Tagovailoa – Miami Dolphins – at Denver
  16. Ryan Tannehill – Tennessee Titans – at Baltimore
  17. Andy Dalton – Dallas Cowboys – at Minnesota
  18. Kirk Cousins – Minnesota Vikings – vs. Dallas
  19. Matthew Stafford – Detroit Lions – at Carolina
  20. Derek Carr – Las Vegas Raiders – vs. Kansas City
  21. Alex Smith – Washington Football – vs. Cincinnati
  22. Joe Burrow – Cincinnati Bengals – at Washington
  23. Baker Mayfield – Cleveland Browns – vs. Philadelphia
  24. Jared Goff – Los Angeles Rams – at Tampa Bay
  25. Philip Rivers – Indianapolis Colts – vs. Green Bay

Thoughts:

  • While Justin Herbert only threw for 187 yards in Week 10 against Miami, he threw for 2 TD and rushed for another TD. He has now thrown for at least 2 TD in six straight games, and overall has 19 TD vs. 6 INT. Those are strong numbers, especially against a Jets’ defense that entered their bye week having allowed the fifth most points per week to opposing QB (16 TD allowed). Rookie or not, he’s playing at an elite level and needs to be considered among the best options in the league.
  • It’s become clear that Lamar Jackson isn’t playing like the elite QB that everyone expected him to be in 2020. He’s generally saved his value by using his legs (45+ rushing yards in eight out of nine games), and his 249 yards through the air in Week 10 were his most since Week 1. While it’s fair to be down on him, things are on the upswing especially in a favorable matchup.
  • Aaron Rodgers continues to roll, but could a matchup against a stiff Indianapolis defense slow them down? The only time he’s struggled this season was against Tampa Bay (160 yards, 0 TD, 2 INT), and Indianapolis has actually been a tougher defense. Obviously it’s impossible to sit him, but it’s fair to keep him outside the Top 5 this week.
  • Speaking of the tough Tampa Bay defense, they quieted Teddy Bridgewater in Week 10 but didn’t silence him as he still threw for 2 TD and ran for another. He’s now scored on the ground in back-to-back games and has thrown for 2 TD in three of the past four. Taking on a Detroit defense that allowed 390 passing yards to Washington in Week 10, it’s easy to consider Bridgewater a strong play.
  • Tua Tagovailoa has looked pretty good over the past two weeks, throwing for 417 yards, 4 TD and 0 INT. Of course we’d love to see a few more yards, though maybe that comes in a favorable matchup against Denver? He’s not a QB1, but he’s definitely a viable QB2.
  • Time will tell if Jameis Winston does get the call for Week 11, though expect to see plenty of Taysom Hill as well. That’s going to limit his value, at least slightly, but in a favorable matchup the upside is there.

  1. What’s up Professor? Just trying to shore up the bottom of the roster. Questions are PPR. Can you please rank the following ROS?
    -CeeDee Lamb, Jalen Reagor, Allen Lazard and Michael Pittman Jr.
    -Damien Harris, Zack Moss and Myles Gaskin
    -Wentz, Tagovailoa, Lock, Dalton and Winston?
    Thanks man

  2. Nice problem to have but…. I have Wilson and Herbert. Wilson has started every game for me. Would you play Herbert OVER Wilson this week? Or keep Wilson in there because he had such a bad game last week, he will rebound in a big way on Thursday ( I think he might). Both have great match ups this week. I know this is a good “problem” to have. Thank you and Happy Thanksgiving.
