QB rankings - Week 11

Rank Quarterback Team Opponent High-Floor/High-Ceiling QB1s
Rank Quarterback Team Opponent High-Floor/High-Ceiling QB1s
1 Patrick Mahomes KC at LAR This is gonna be a track meet.
2 Jared Goff LAR KC See above.
3 Drew Brees NO PHI Philly's secondary has been ravaged by injury.
4 Andrew Luck IND TEN Luck's a Top 5 option from here on out.
5 Cam Newton CAR at DET Cam put up a dud last week but this week he gets a reeling Lions defense that just got posterized by Mitchell Trubisky.
6 Aaron Rodgers GB SEA It's a somewhat tough matchup but the Packers' offense in shaping into form.
7 Carson Wentz PHI at NO Good offenses + bad defenses = shootout.
8 Deshaun Watson HOU at WAS Watson should have his way with a reeling Washington defense.
9 Ben Roethlisberger PIT at JAX Jacksonville's out of sorts and the Steelers are dominating opponents offensively.
10 Mitchell Trubisky CHI MIN The Vikings D has been hampered by injury and Trubisky has been Fantasy Gold.
11 Ryan Fitzpatrick TB at NYG Even in a bad game, Fitz crossed the 400 yard mark.
12 Matt Ryan ATL DAL ATL's offense is firing on all cylinders now.
High-Floor/High-Ceiling QB2s
13 Philiip Rivers LAR DEN Rivers has been somewhat underproducing but the matchup keeps him on the QB1/2 fringe.
14 Russell Wilson SEA GB Wilson's been getting it done on surprisingly low volume as of late.
15 Dak Prescott DAL at ATL The likely return of Deion Jones keeps Dak out of the top tier but he's absolutely got a shot to finish there this week.
16 Marcus Mariota TEN at IND Tennessee's been playing well as of late.
17 Kirk Cousins MIN at CHI The matchup drops Cousins this low. He'll be buyoued by Thielen and Cook though.
Low-Floor/High-Ceiling QB2s
18 Eli Manning NYG TB The bottom could drop out at any moment but it's just as likely Beckham houses two slants against the Bucs juco-level defense.
19 Matthew Stafford DET CAR Stafford's been struggling to produce in the fantasy world but this week he gets a Carolina defense that the Steelers just eviscerated.
Low-Floor/Capped-Ceiling QB2s
20 Andy Dalton CIN at CAL If Dalton turns in a decent fantasy day, it'll likely be from dump-offs to Joe Mixon.
21 Blake Bortles JAX PIT The return of Fournette takes some of the defensive attention off of Bortles.
22 Josh Rosen ARI OAK Similar to Dalton's outlook, Rosen's fantasy relevance will likely depend on DJ's passing game involvement. It's a good matchup though.
23 Joe Flacco BAL CIN Cincinnati just fired their DC but Flacco's both battling an injury and underperforming. By the end of the week, it might be Lamar Jackson on this list instead.
24 Case Keenum DEN at LAC It's a tough matchup for the lackluster signal caller.
The QB3s
25 Derek Carr OAK at ARI The Cardinals' pass rush will shred Gruden's Stone Age offense.
26 Alex Smith WAS HOU Look away.
