Week 11 is here, so it’s truly a great day to be great. Today’s goal is to break down the week’s key fantasy football questions facing the quarterback position before producing the group’s specific ranks.

“Why be a king, when you can be a (fantasy) God. – Eminem” – Justin Fields
The 2021 NFL Draft’s No. 11 overall pick has led this Chicago Bears offense to 33, 29, 32 and 30 points over the last four weeks, looking like a fantasy cheat code along the way thanks to his absurd rushing success. Sixth overall in rushing yards (749) behind only Saquon Barkley (931), Derrick Henry (927), Nick Chubb (904), Josh Jacobs (820) and Dameon Pierce (772), Fields has gone from dual-threat talent to one of the league’s most-productive rushers regardless of position.
Fields started the season with four straight fantasy finishes as the QB23 or worse. Since then: QB12, QB9, QB5, QB5, QB1 and QB1. The man is BALLING.

Fileds is on pace for a cool 177-1273-10 rushing line this season, so he’s earned weekly upside QB1 treatment despite having fewer than 200 passing yards in all but one game this season. Don’t be surprised if another boom is on the way against the Atlanta Falcons’ bottom-10 defense in fantasy points per game allowed to the position.
