Here are my Week 11 QB rankings for standard-scoring leagues that reward four points per touchdown pass.
This countdown doesn’t lean on a particular stat. It’s merely an educated early guess of which signal-callers, 1 through 28, will have the best combination of total yards (passing/rushing) and total touchdowns for the NFL’s 11th weekend.
Regardless of how these rankings shake out every week, it shouldn’t supersede two important factors that go into regular lineup consideration:
1. Always play your healthy superstars.
2. Always ride your gut instinct over a certain guru’s analysis (read: plausible deniability).
BYES: Baltimore, Dallas, Jacksonville, N.Y. Jets
