Fantasy Football Week 11 QB Rankings: Is Taysom Hill a Must-Start?

Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings Week 11

Getty Taysom Hill #7 of the New Orleans Saints.

Welcome to our Fantasy Football Quarterback Rankings for Week 11 of the 2020 NFL regular season. This week, owners welcome back Patrick Mahomes into their lineups with open arms. However, they will be stripped of not only Josh Allen due to a bye, but most likely Drew Brees as well, as the QB is dealing with an injury to his ribs. How should owners go about replacing the future Hall of Famer? Let’s discuss.

Quarterback Outlook Week 11

According to ESPN’s Ed Werder, Drew Brees’ medical evaluations on Monday revealed “multiple rib fractures on both sides of his chest and a collapsed lung on the right side.” The Saints are hopeful that Brees can return in approximately three weeks, per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

While many expected Jameis Winston to take over under center for the Saints, numerous reports have pointed towards Taysom Hill (QB12) making his first career start at quarterback come Sunday.

Hill is a question mark from a pure-passing perspective, but his ability as a runner, met with a slew of talented playmakers for him to distribute the ball to, along with a mouth-watering matchup puts him in the low-end QB1 discussion.

Hill has led the team in rushing over the past three weeks (134 yards), out-rushing Alvin Kamara in each of the past two games. Furthermore, the Saints offense has proven in the past that they can man a starting fantasy option under center, even if that option is not Brees. In 2019, from Week 3 through Week 7, Teddy Bridgewater averaged 17.2 ppg in place of an injured Brees, ranking as QB12 over that span.

Hill’s opponents this week, the Atlanta Falcons, allow 26.02 ppg to opposing QBs this season, the most in the NFL. Four of their last six opponents at the position have exceeded 20.0 points. Six of their nine opponents this season have recorded multi TD games, while only one QB (Kirk Cousins) has tossed multiple interceptions against them this year.
