We are onto NFL Week 11 and here are my fantasy football rankings for the quarterback position this week.

Arizona Cardinals quarterback Kyler Murray has firmly asserted himself as fantasy’s top dog at the position. Justin Herbert is a weekly contender for the Top 5. Jameis Winston is immediately in the Top 12 conversation with Drew Brees’ litany of chest injuries. The QB2 ranks feature a bevvy of solid streaming options like Andy Dalton (at MIN), Kirk Cousins (DAL), and Alex Smith (CIN). Carson Wentz is extremely tough to trust.

Week 11’s Tiered Quarterback Rankings

Rank High-Floor/High-Ceiling QB1s Team Opponent Breakdown
Rank High-Floor/High-Ceiling QB1s Team Opponent Breakdown
1 Kyler Murray ARI at SEA Murray's 10 rushing touchdowns are second only to running back Dalvin Cook*.
2 Patrick Mahomes KC LV Don't be surprised if Andy Reid seeks revenge for Week 5's loss to LV. Pedal to the medal.
3 Russell Wilson SEA ARI For everything Murray does, Wilson will be asked to answer.
4 Ben Roethlisberger PIT at JAX Jacksonville's bottom-barrel defense is on tap.
5 Justin Herbert LAC NYJ Tough to articulate how bad the Jets are.
6 Deshaun Watson HOU NE Watson is match-up proof.
7 Cam Newton NE at NE Sandlot football should get the job done against Houston's lacking defense.
8 Matt Ryan ATL at NO Calvin Ridley's availability (foot)* is pivotal.
9 Lamar Jackson BAL TEN Tennessee's defense is bad enough that the flailing Ravens' offense should be able to stay on the rails.
10 Tom Brady TB LAR Tough match-up but the Bucs' pass catching corps is just loaded at this point.
11 Teddy Bridgewater CAR DET Assuming his MCL sprain can be handled with a knee brace, Bridgewater should shred the Lions' hapless secondary. He's entered match-up-proof territory -- for future bouts with more difficult defenses.
12 Aaron Rodgers GB at IND Tough match-up but Davante Adams is playing out of his mind.
Rank High-Floor/High-Ceiling QB2s Team Opponent Breakdown
13 Taysom Hill NO ATL Hill has the rushing floor, match-up, and play-makers to get the job done. He's the overall TE1 in leagues where he is eligible to be started as such.
14 Andy Dalton DAL at MIN Minnesota's secondary is the Fountain of Youth for opposing passing games.
15 Ryan Tannehill TEN at BAL Tough match-up but Tennessee's offense is hard to slow down.
16 Kirk Cousins MIN DAL Trash pass defenses and talented pass catching corps.
17 Joe Burrow CLE at WAS Washington's pressure rate (24.1%)* will be a problem. Their penchance for missing tackes (80 -- 3rd-most in the NFL)* could give Burrow enough second chances to get the job done though.
18 Alex Smith WAS CIN Smith hung 390 yards on the Lions last week. Cincy offers an even softer* match-up for him in Week 11.
19 Tua Tagovailoa MIA at DEN Ho-hum match-up for the developing rookie.
20 Carson Wentz PHI at CLE Good match-up but that hasn't stopped Wentz from crashing and burning in the past.
21 Joe Flacco NYJ at LAC With the Jets' wide reciever corps returning to full health, Flacco is able to put up numbers in the box score. The Chargers' injury-nuked defense won't present much of a problem for him.
22 Baker Mayfield CLE PHI Winter has come to Cleveland* and it's affected the Browns' passing game in back-to-back weeks.
Rank High-Floor/Shaky-Ceiling QB3s Team Opponent Breakdown
23 Matthew Stafford DET at CAR It all comes down to Kenny Golladay's availability (hip)*.
24 Derek Carr LV at KC Carr will be forced to throw to keep pace.
Rank High-Floor/Capped-Ceiling QB3s Team Opponent Breakdown
25 Jared Goff LAR at TB Cooper Kupp's wrist injury has seemingly sapped Goff of his fantasy ability*.
26 Philip Rivers IND GB Jaire Alexanders' concussion status is important to monitor*. At this point, the assumption is that he'll clear the concussion protocol with a week of rest already under his belt.
27 Drew Lock DEN MIA If Lock can't get it done against Las Vegas' weak-sauce secondary, he doesn't stand a chance against Miami's.
28 Jake Luton JAX PIT Brutal match-up.
