Dak Prescott, DAL QB (at ATL)
35% owned in Yahoo! Leagues, 30.2% owned in ESPN Leagues
Dak had a fine showing in Week 10, totaling 270 passing yards, 1 passing TD, 0 interceptions, 9 yards and 1 touchdown on the ground. As long as Dak keeps using his legs, his floor is as high as any quarterback in fantasy. He gets the Falcons this week which raises his ceiling through the roof! Rangy linebacker Deion Jones may return as the centerpiece of the Falcons defense this week but they’ll still be down both starting safeties – a deficiency that can’t be covered up. Look for Dak to turn in another strong performance from the streaming ranks this week.
Lamar Jackson, BAL QB (vs. CIN)

We discussed Lamar Jackson on the pod this week but in case you missed it, give it a listen. It’s unclear as to whether or not Jackson will get the starting nod over an ailing Joe Flacco but his ceiling is far too high to let him sit on the waiver wire. If Flacco and his bum hip can’t go, Jackson would take the reigns for a delicious matchup against a Cincinnati Bengals team that began the week by firing their defensive coordinator.
Jackson’s rushing floor is undeniable and given his pass-catching corps, it’s not out of the question that he approaches 2017 Deshaun Watson-level production in the coming weeks. Baltimore rest-of-season schedule is almost too good to be true. In Weeks 11-16, the Ravens tee off at home against Cincinnati, Oakland, at Atlanta, at Kansas City, Tampa Bay, and at the L.A. Chargers. That’s a cakewalk too wonderful to ignore. Add Jackson ASAP.
Marcus Mariota, TEN QB (at IND)

Mariota’s coming off a solid showing against the New England Patriots with his sights set on an Indianapolis Colts defense that’s given Derek Carr and Blake Bortles decent outings in each of their last two games. With Andrew Luck’s offense firing on all cylinders, the brunt of the Tennessee scoring duties will fall squarely on Mariota’s shoulders. Look for a high-volume, productive performance in Week 11 out of the Tennessee signal caller.
