Best fantasy matchups for fantasy football NFL Week 11
5. Justin Fields, QB, Chicago Bears (vs. ATL)
Justin Fields’ budding stardom has become one of the main storylines of fantasy football and the entire league as a whole. The dual-threat quarterback has transformed Chicago’s offense, and has turned them into a matchup nightmare for opposing defenses.
He’s rushed for over 145 yards in two straight games and has thrown for over 120 in those two games as well. He’s emerged as a weekly, matchup-proof option that has league-winning upside.
One of the craziest stats of the season: Fields’ 749 rushing yards rank sixth in the NFL — more than guys like Aaron Jones, Dalvin Cook, and Christian McCaffrey. His continued dominance on the ground, and in fantasy football, has added yet another mobile quarterback into the fantasy mix, along with guys such as Lamar Jackson and Jalen Hurts.
Though Fields is matchup-proof, he can excel in favorable ones. He did so most notably last week against Detroit when he erupted en route to a top-five finish.
This week, he has a chance to do the same thing as he takes on the Atlanta Falcons, who have been one of the worst defenses in the NFL. Fields should have another heyday and continue winning games for fantasy football managers.
