QB rankings and streaming advice for Week 11 of the 2020 fantasy football season.
Week 10 delivered minor injuries to some key quarterbacks:
- Drew Brees suffered a rib injury against the 49ers and is expected to miss 2-3 weeks. The Saints are optimistic about his recovery and did not place Brees on IR. In the meantime, Jameis Winston is likely the starter for the Saints in the interim, with presumably some cameos from Taysom Hill.
- Teddy Bridgewater exited in the fourth quarter with a knee injury, though it is not considered serious and he may still be able to suit up in Week 11. If Bridgewater were to miss this week, P.J. Walter or Will Grier would start for the Panthers.
- Matthew Stafford had X-rays taken on his thumb after Sunday’s game, though he is expected to play this week.
- Nick Foles was carted off in the final moments of Sunday’s game, though the injury ended up not being serious and he is expected to avoid IR. Regardless of injury status, it is possible the Bears make a change at quarterback after their bye this week.
As for my Week 10 picks, Bridgewater delivered 136 yards and two passing and one rushing TD before exiting the game in the fourth quarter. Tua Tagovailoa had a modest performance with 169 yards, two TDs and another win for the Dolphins. Tagovailoa is now 3-0 as Miami’s starting quarterback with five passing TDs and zero INTs, tied for the third most passing TDs in a QB’s first three starts without throwing an INT since 1950. Finally, Nick Mullens’ 237 passing yards and one TD were underscored by his two interceptions, keeping him from having a sufficient bounce back performance.

The second to last week of byes means Buffalo Bills, Chicago Bears, New York Giants, and San Francisco 49ers are off this week.
