Top QBs To Start in Week 11
Justin Fields, Chicago Bears
We are seemingly getting closer and closer to Justin Fields returning to the lineup here for the Chicago Bears, and the extra period of rest — after playing on Thursday night — should give him the time he needs to be fully ready to roll here in Week 11.
If he’s healthy and active, Fields is a great start for fantasy lineups due to the upside he presents. It’s been a while since we’ve seen him on the field, but don’t forget that the dynamic QB had finished as the QB3 and QB1 in back-to-back weeks before getting injured in Week 6 against the Minnesota Vikings.
The rushing potential is there, and this offense badly needs him. He’s a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 in my rankings for the time being, with the potential to rise as we see the practice reports come out.
Trevor Lawrence, Jacksonville Jaguars
Things haven’t gone the way that Trevor Lawrence had hoped they would coming into the year. He’s finished inside of the top 10 quarterbacks for fantasy just twice all season long, and there are now greater conversations being had regarding whether or not he’s the long-term answer in Jacksonville.
While it’s a bit premature to have those conversations, in my opinion, Lawrence needs to start bouncing back and be a top fantasy option that he was billed as coming into the season. This matchup against the Tennessee Titans’ pass defense in Week 11 should be the spot where we see him come through.
Tennessee’s tightened things up here in recent weeks, but this is still a pass-funnel defense that Lawrence should be able to work around as he delivers the ball to his playmakers. Don’t panic yet if you’ve got him…better days are ahead.
