Quarterback rankings for Week 11 fantasy football

We take you through some of the best quarterbacks going in Week 11 for fantasy football, including a few viable streamers.

Frinal injury report

Sam Darnold is doubtful, so Joe Flacco will get the start against the Chargers.

Matthew Stafford is listed as questionable, but should play against the Panthers

Drew Lock is questionable and we likely won’t know if he’ll play until Saturday or Sunday. Brett Rypien would start against the Dolphins if Lock can’t go.

Teddy Bridgewater is a game-time decision against the Lions. If he can’t play, one of Will Grier or P.J. Walker will get the start.

Out: N/A
Doubtful: Sam Darnold (right shoulder)
Questionable: Matthew Stafford (right thumb), Teddy Bridgewater (knee), Drew Lock (ribs), Tyrod Taylor (ribs), Gardner Minshew (right thumb)

Thursday injury report

Drew Lock returned to practice and split snaps with Brett Rypien. He was limited, but appears to be getting better.

Teddy Bridgewater is likely out this week. Will Grier or P.J. Walker will get the start.

Matthew Stafford returned to practice and was limited. His chances to play are looking better.

DNP: Drew Brees (right shoulder, ribs), Sam Darnold (right shoulder)
Limited: Matthew Stafford (right thumb), Teddy Bridgewater (knee), Drew Lock (ribs), Gardner Minshew (right thumb)
Full: Andy Dalton (concussion), Tua Tagovailoa (foot), Ben Roethlisberger (not injury related)

Wednesday injury report

Drew Lock missed practice due to a muscle injury in his ribs. He’ll need to get a practice or two in to be able to play this weekend vs. Miami.

Teddy Bridgewater got in a limited practice Wednesday. If he can’t go due to his knee injury, either P.J. Walker or Will Grier will get the start against Detroit.

Matthew Stafford didn’t practice Wednesday due to his thumb injury. Reports seem to favor him playing through the ligament tear, but he’ll need to get some practice reps in.

Andy Dalton is off the Covid-19 list and cleared of his concussion. He’ll face the Vikings this week.

Drew Brees is out at least the next two weeks due to his rib injuries. Jameis Winston is the likely starter against Atlanta on Sunday.

DNP: Drew Brees (right shoulder, ribs), Matthew Stafford (right thumb), Drew Lock (ribs), Sam Darnold (right shoulder)
Limited: Teddy Bridgewater (knee), Gardner Minshew (right thumb)
Full: Andy Dalton (concussion), Tua Tagovailoa (foot)

After getting completely swamped by the New Orleans Saints in Week 9, Tom Brady bounced back with a vengeance to take the Week 10 QB1 crown. Kyler Murray did his usual, rushing for two more touchdowns as he extended his big lead as QB1 on the season. Ben Roethlisberger finished as QB3 on the week and has back-to-back big games as he heads into Jacksonville for another nice matchup. And rookie Justin Herbert just keeps finding ways to put up fantasy points, as he threw for just 187 yards while his team lost to Miami, but managed two passing touchdowns and a rushing touchdown to push him to QB9 and QB5 on the season.

Injury news

Drew Brees is out this week and Sean Payton has yet to name a starter against the Falcons. It is more than likely James Winston, but Taysom Hill will see work.

Andy Dalton has been cleared of his concussion and will play against the Vikings.

Sam Darnold is out against the Chargers and Joe Flacco will take over again.

Drew Lock has a muscle strain in his ribs and isn’s sure to play against the Dolphins.

Teddy Bridgewater has an MCL sprain but could still play this week.

Jake Luton will start for the Jaguars against the Steelers.

Bye weeks

San Francisco 49ers, New York Giants, Chicago Bears, Buffalo Bills

Streaming options

Jameis Winston, New Orleans Saints

We really don’t know what we’ll get from Winston this week, but his matchup against the Falcons is too good pass up. He’s not a lock by any means, but I’ll take his upside over a host of other quarterbacks.

Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings

Cousins has some great weapons and sometimes he’s good at finding them. This week he’ll get to face the Cowboys, who have given up the third-most passing touchdowns and have the second-fewest interceptions.
