Week 11 QB Sleepers
Every week, we highlight QB sleepers available in over 50% of Yahoo! leagues to help you find players streamable to help you win! For those of us in deep leagues, we kick in a player available in over 90% of Yahoo! leagues. Figures are as of Thursday morning.
Dak Prescott at Atlanta (46% owned)
Don’t look now, but Dak is putting together a nice run of games that make him a viable starting fantasy football quarterback. Prescott has posted QB10 numbers since week six. He torched the Jags and posted 20+ days against both Washington and Philly. His lone blemish was on Monday Night Football against a Titans team that shut up Tom Brady last week, so he gets a pass on that one. Dak Prescott is good again, folks. This week he plays an extremely beat up Falcons defense in the NFC South racetrack that is Mercedes-Benz Stadium. Dak getting the Falcons at home is a massive boon for his floor: the worst game they’ve yielded in Atlanta was Eli Manning throwing for 399 yards and just one touchdown; the best game they’ve allowed on the road was Baker Mayfield going for 216 and three last week. They allow 150 more yards, 1.6 more touchdowns, and 12 more fantasy points in Atlanta than on the road this year. Start Dak, he’s a great kickoff to the QB sleepers list this week.
Eli Manning versus Tampa Bay (21% owned)
This is an extraordinarily good week for QB sleepers facing bad defenses. Eli Manning, fresh off a three-touchdown performance in San Francisco is hoping to make it three top-twelve QB days out of his last four efforts as he takes on the second-worst pass defense against opposing quarterbacks this year. Before Alex Smith did his whole Alex Smith routine against Tampa Bay, they had allowed multiple passing touchdowns in six straight weeks, and seven-of-eight weeks on the season. They haven’t had an interception since Big Ben in week three, and Alex Smith was the first quarterback to get fewer than fifteen fantasy points against them. God, Alex Smith sucks. So does Eli Manning, but at least he has Odell Beckham to throw to. If you picked him up to stream him against San Francisco, hang on to Eli as this is another great week for him to top the QB sleepers. He has a good matchup this week, and he showed last week that he still has enough in him to mine those for fantasy glory.
[RAVENS QUARTERBACK] versus Cincinnati (Lamar Jackson, 10% owned or Robert Griffin III, 1% owned)
LET’S GO!!! Joe Flacco finally doesn’t make the QB sleepers list because he is hurt and probably isn’t playing this weekend. The only problem? We don’t know who is starting this weekend for Baltimore. If it’s Lamar Jackson, he had trouble running an offense, but no trouble running, the last time we saw him. That first part should have changed, but the second part should still hold true. If it’s RG3, we still have some upside there thanks to the opponent. You want Lamar Jackson, but you’ll take Robert Griffin III. The reason? The Bengals are a gosh-darned mess on defense. They’ve given up the most fantasy points to quarterbacks this year, and they’ve yielded multiple passing touchdowns in three of their last four games. Only Ryan Tannehill (RIP) and Jameis Winston (RIP) haven’t managed at least 19.8 fantasy points against them this year.
