Fantasy Football Week 11 Quarterback Preview: Streaming option, projections, DFS plays, and more

The 2022 season has been a pretty big disaster for Fantasy purposes, but with the emergence of Justin Fields and Tua Tagovailoa it was starting to look better. We even had 15 quarterbacks score 20 Fantasy points in Week 11. Unfortunately, four of those quarterbacks — Geno Smith, Tom Brady, Trevor Lawrence, and Tagovailoa — are on bye in Week 11. 

Back to the drawing board.

The first place we often look for streamers is to the matchups. Even that doesn’t offer a lot of hope. The Lions face Kenny Pickett, the Raiders get Russell Wilson, Justin Herbert faces the Chiefs, and Jimmy Garoppolo gets the Arizona Cardinals. Those are four of the top five in terms of Fantasy points allowed to quarterbacks. The other is the Dolphins, who aren’t playing anyone this week.

The point is, don’t be surprised to see Wilson, Herbert, and Garoppolo inside our top 12 despite their struggles this season. And don’t be surprised if you see Pickett in the streaming section below. It’s not so much that there are great reasons to hope they’ll be better, it’s just that it’s another weak week at quarterback and they face the worst defenses.

The one exception would be Herbert. His Chargers trail only the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in pass rate this season and coach Brandon Staley expects both Mike Williams and Keenan Allen back at practice this week. If Herbert gets those two back, he may actually be someone we should be excited to start. And with his rest of season schedule, he may also be the best buy low at the quarterback position right now.
