Fantasy owners may have had a rough Week 11 (unless they had a quarterback that played on Monday night). Some of the big-name quarterbacks underperformed (Carson Wentz), some got injured (Alex Smith) and some got benched (Ryan Fitzpatrick). When Taysom Hill nearly outscores Wentz, it just wasn't a good week. The positive is that another week is already upon us. Only two teams are bye, but fantasy owners of Patrick Mahomes and Jared Goff will need to find a replacement for the week. Jameis Winston, facing the San Francisco 49ers, is a solid streaming option.
Three games are going to be played on Thursday. However, while some of those games may be great for fantasy owners (New Orleans/Atlanta Thursday night should be a great one), others may be tough. Starting Matthew Stafford against the Bears defense isn't advisable. For Chicago, Mitchell Trubisky is going to be questionable. He's not ranked (Chase Daniel is QB25 instead) as it does appear that he may miss this game with a shoulder injury. For Washington, Alex Smith is done for the year and Colt McCoy will be the quarterback (ranked No. 27) for Week 12 and beyond.
Teams on bye: Kansas City, Los Angeles Rams
