Fantasy Football: Week 11 QB rankings
One person who’s happy about the NFL’s decision to move its marquee Monday-night matchup — 9-1 Rams vs. 9-1 Chiefs — from Azteca Stadio to the L.A. Memorial Coliseum? Jared Goff.
Our QB1 this week, Goff has tossed 14 TDs against 2 INTs while going 5-0 in his home digs compared to 8:4 and 4-1 on the road, where the Rams are scoring nearly two points fewer than at home.
What about Pat Mahomes, you say? Our QB2 in Week 11 actually has been a tad better statistically away from Arrowhead but would be pretty much unassailable playing on the moon. So why give Goff the edge? As well as the Chiefs ‘D’ has played of late, it hasn’t traveled nearly as well, permitting averages of 463 yards and 29 points in its past three road contests compared to 407 and 15, respectively, over the most recent trio of home games.
Of course, the Rams have been shredded at home, allowing 31, 27 and 31 points in their past three bouts at the Coliseum. Goff actually has been a tad hotter than Mahomes over each of their past two respective outings, albeit separated by less than four fantasy points. If we compare their past four games, when Mahomes has been QB1 and Goff is QB3, the difference is less than 12 points.
A one-word Clubber Lang-caliber prediction we feel safer making than Mahomes vs. Goff for top QB billing this week? Points. Lots of ’em for both clubs. Buckle up.
