Yet again, Lamar Jackson went off with over 300 yards of total offense and four touchdowns. Deshaun Watson was the big disappointment of the week. There is really nothing to worry about with him moving forward but his 169 yard and 2 turnover performance was a little concerning. He’s a top-scoring fantasy quarterback and shouldn’t have many if any of those types of games again. I will be going through my quarterback rankings going into Week 12. I’ll include an analysis of the big performances of Week 11 as well as the matchup you’ll want to look out for. Here are my quarterback rankings for Week 12.

Great Week 11

For the past two weeks, Josh Allen has made a name for himself. He has skyrocketed into the top-scoring fantasy quarterbacks. His rushing ability makes him a great quarterback to have starting every week. In the last two weeks he has three rushing touchdowns. Just last week he also had three passing touchdowns which added with 312 total yards of offense. His ability to find ways to score week after week has made him extremely valuable. His only off game this year was against the Patriots which the Bills don’t play again until Week 16. Dak Prescott has also emerged as a top option. He has thrown three touchdowns in each of the last three games for the Cowboys who have been less and less reliant on Ezekiel Elliott. They have consistently been allowing Dak to throw more and more which is seen in his 444 yard game last week. His game at New England will serve as a tougher matchup for him and let him show his ability to face a tough defense.

New Face

I wanted to point out Jeff Driskel’s performance as well. He has taken over for Matthew Stafford who has been dealing with a spinal problem. In his first game, he had to take on a difficult Bears’ defense where he was able to throw for 269 yards and a touchdown with just one interception. Last week though, he threw for two touchdowns, rushed for one touchdown, and stayed turnover free. This week he plays the Redskins who serve as a nice matchup. He should be able to utilize all his great targets with Golladay, Jones, and Hockenson this week which makes him a good streaming option this week.

Good Matchups

Matt Ryan has the best matchup this week against the Buccaneers. The Bucs have allowed the second-most passing yards per game, right behind the Cardinals who are off this week. Ryan has taken a step back from his dominant performances early in the season. Against the Cardinals, he threw for 356 yards with four touchdowns. The Bucs serve as a similar matchup this week which puts him as my #2 quarterback this week. On the other side of the ball in that game, Jamies Winston also has a nice matchup against the Falcons. The Falcons have allowed the seventh-most passing yards per game, but Winston has looked pretty good recently. He has thrown over 300 yards in each of the Bucs last 5 games. His one problem is interceptions. He has thrown the most out of every quarterback and threw four last week. If he is able to limit the turnovers, he would be a top quarterback. His two targets with Mike Evans and Chris Godwin give him a big edge.

Tough Matchups

Aaron Rodgers is coming off two under-performing games. He has not looked like himself. He has just one touchdown over the past two games and hasn’t been able to get over 250 yards. This next matchup won’t make anything any better as the Packers face the 49ers. The 49ers are the best defense against the pass. They limited Kyler Murray to just 150 yards last week. It will take everything that Rodgers can give to score nicely this week. Daniel Jones killed it in the Giants last game. He threw for 308 yards and four touchdowns against the Jets. They had a bye week last week to allow them to practice more and watch more film to prepare, but the Bears are a defense that is scary to go against, especially for a rookie quarterback like Jones. The one good thing for Jones is that Sterling Shepard might make his return from injury this week.

I started playing fantasy football in 2010 at 12 years old where I subbed in for an owner who was having a baby. That year I won the championship in a 16-team league, carried by Arian Foster and Michael Vick. I have yet to bring a trophy home since then, but my love for fantasy football has grown, delving more and more in the statistics and finding ways to improve my drafting ability.
