Lamar Jackson continues to be an MVP candidate.

He was a human highlight reel in week 10 again, this time against the lowly Bengals.

He led all quarterbacks in fantasy points once again and now leads the NFL in fantasy football scoring in 2019. He continues to be a matchup nightmare and will once again fill that role again in week 11.

For those who are on the cutline, here’s the the start ’em, sit ’em guide for week 11 fantasy football quarterbacks.


Jimmy Garoppolo vs. Arizona Cardinals

Garoppolo wasn’t as good in week 10 as he should have been against a below-average Seattle defense. But that’s been the season for Garoppolo.

He’s been up and down, but we shouldn’t hold that against him in week 11 against the Cardinals.

The last time Garoppolo squared off against Arizona, it was his best outing of the season. The Cardinals have given up the most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks, so you have to believe Garoppolo will emerge as a QB1 in week 11.

Dak Prescott vs. Detroit Lions

It’s time to start seeing Prescott as a weekly viable option in fantasy football.

Sure, he has some rough moments. But this isn’t Ezekiel Elliott’s team anymore. This offense runs through Prescott, so as Prescott goes, so do the Cowboys.

He’s been over 20 fantasy points in every game, but one this year, so this should be another nice spot. Detroit has allowed the seventh-most fantasy points per game to quarterbacks this season and they’re trending downward.

Kyle Allen vs. Atlanta Falcons

If you’re looking for a streaming option in week 11, consider Allen against Atlanta.

Sure, the Falcons were much better in week 10, but I’m not buying this as a new Atlanta defense. New Orleans does this at least one time each year, so I’m forgetting last week even happened.

The Falcons are a bottom-five team against opposing quarterbacks this season in fantasy, so I’m going to back Allen in this matchup.

Allen has been OK in recent weeks and this is an opportunity for the Panthers to flex their muscles on offense.


Kyler Murray vs. San Fancisco 49ers

I’ve been overly impressed with Murray this season. He’s been more consistent than other rookies, showing not only some promise at home, but on the road, too.

Murray has more than 20 fantasy points in four of the last six games. That’s something to keep an eye on as the season progresses.

However, this matchup just doesn’t look good on paper. Murray has to travel cross-country in consecutive weeks, going from Tampa Bay to San Francisco. And the 49ers have allowed the fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

Murray has been an uplifting story this year, but he’s still a rookie for a reason.

Ryan Fitzpatrick vs. Buffalo Bills

Fitzpatrick hasn’t been bad in recent weeks, going for more than 20 fantasy points in two of the last three games.

So it may be tempting, especially as a streamer to consider the rejuvenated Fitzpatrick.

Don’t buy the hype, though.

The Bills are a top-five defense against the pass and are allowing the fourth-fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks.

The Bills need this win, so I’m not banking on the Dolphins to be ready once again to win this game.

Baker Mayfield vs. Pittsburgh Steelers

Mayfield almost broke into the QB1 rankings in week 10, with a decent day against a solid Buffalo team.

But I can’t forget about the Mayfield that we witnessed in previous weeks.

He hasn’t gone for more than 20 fantasy points yet this season and I don’t see that happening against Pittsburgh. The Steelers are allowed the 10th-fewest fantasy points per game to quarterbacks and trending in the right direction.
