Once again, we posted the “So-Called Fantasy” Staff’s Week 11 Rankings on Tuesday, and now we’re going to dive into those rankings to find out some players I think might be ranked too high or too low in our Week 11 Quarterback rankings specifically.
Each week, different writers break down different positions, and they pick which players they think are ranked too low or too high.
This week, we’re getting back the quarterbacking talents of Philip Rivers and Matt Ryan, but we lose Ben Roethlisberger, Drew Brees and Eli Manning.
That means we’re losing three of the top 10 Fantasy quarterbacks in the game.
We also want to remind you to use the “My Playbook” application that connects with all of your Fantasy teams, giving you instant analysis no matter where your league is hosted. This analysis includes, start/sit advice, the best waiver wire pickups and more. It really is a fantastic app!
Quarterback Week 11 Rankings Reaction
This is where I look at some of the interesting spots some players ended up getting ranked, with an explanation as to why I like or dislike that player compared to my ranking ranking.
Who I Like More
Blake Bortles, Jacksonville vs. Tennessee
There are only seven other NFL defenses that are allowing more Fantasy points to quarterbacks this season, and the Titans have been allowing all these points on the fewest pass attempts per game (29.11) in the NFL.
Bortles has at least two touchdown passes in his past five games, and it’s evident that he quite possibly has the two best young wide receivers in the game in Allen Robinson and Allen Hurns.
Tyrod Taylor, Buffalo at New England
So far this season, quarterbacks facing the Patriots have either thrown for 300 passing yards or for at least two touchdowns in seven of nine games.
While Taylor hasn’t thrown for more than one touchdown in all but one game this season, he’s coming off a win against the Jets and the Bills will likely have to throw more against the Patriots.
Who I Like Less
Ryan Tannehill, Miami vs. Dallas
With just two touchdown passes in his past three games, and while he hasn’t played horribly, he’s still not up to being a regular weekly starter. The Cowboys are easier to run on, and quarterbacks have just two touchdown passes against them in the past four games.
Matt Ryan, Atlanta vs. Indianapolis
Last week, John LaPresto named Ryan as a player that’s safe to drop in Fantasy Football. Indianapolis has been pretty bad against quarterbacks, allowing more than 285 passing yards on average. And the Colts might be the worst pass defense he faces for the remainder of the season. But even so, it’s tough to lean on Ryan in 10-team leagues when the position is as stacked as it has been lately.
