Week 11 brings about some lop-sided match-ups of great quarterbacks against horrible defenses. And with the NFL past its halfway point, it seems as if most teams “are who we thought they were.” The bad teams are bad, and the good teams are good. We know the Colts, Patriots, Cowboys and Packers are going to playoffs. We also know that the Dolphins, Rams and Falcons won’t be playing football in January. And with a lot of the good teams playing a lot of the bad teams this week, making the Week 11 Fantasy Football Rankings for quarterbacks was fairly easy.
So here are your fantasy football rankings for Week 11 of the NFL season:
1. Peyton Manning, Indianapolis Colts vs. Kansas City Chiefs – Manning had a horrible day against the San Diego Chargers back in Week 11. In front of a national television audience, Peyton threw 6 interceptions and had an all-around bad day. That can only mean one thing though…revenge! You can rest assure that Manning will be back in the film room working over time throughout his preparation for the Week 11 match-up against the Chiefs.
With the Chiefs inconsistent pass defense, Manning should have no trouble carving up the misguided defense for a 300+ yards. And the Chiefs will not be able to play keep away from Manning either. With Larry Johnson out and Brody Croyle likely to start, Manning should be in possession of the ball much longer than necessary.
2. Tom Brady, New England Patriots vs. Buffalo Bills – What can I say? He’s Tom Brady. And I wouldn’t expect anything less than superman-like performance from him on a Sunday game against the Bills. The Bills defense is very formidable, but it does not have the depth on defense to play with the Patriots snap after snap for the duration of an entire game.
The playmakers of Moss, Welker and Stallworth are far too dangerous, which makes it hard for a defense to take away Tom Brady’s option. If they double Moss, Brady will throw to Welker. If they bracket Welker, Brady will find Moss or Stallworth. Brady just has too many options to pick apart a Bills defense that does not have the depth of talent to match up with all of them.
3. Donovan McNabb, Philadelphia Eagles vs. Miami Dolphins – Four touchdowns in Week 9 makes McNabb a hot commodity in Week 11. But more important than his last performance is his Week 11 opponent. The Dolphins have continued to be gashed through the air, and McNabb is looking like he can do that more and more, with each passing week. So if you have McNabb, you’ve finally ran into a stretch of games where McNabb is going to start racking up the yards…especially against a Dolphins defense that is ranking next to the bottom of the league.
4. Ben Roethlisberger, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. New York Jets – Big Ben had a big day in Week 10 against the Browns. He did it both with his feet and his arm, and you know you all love it when a QB gets a rushing touchdown t since that method of scoring is worth more points than passing for one. The Jets have not been able to cover anyone this season, and it won’t change against a blitzing defense that is very accustomed to being gauged for big yardage
