Fantasy Football Quarterback Sleepers for NFL Week 11: Stafford & Romo

fantasy football quarterback sleepers matthew stafford 2015 nfl imagesThe Jacksonville Jaguars just won their fourth game of the season to kick off Week 11, moving them within half a game of the AFC South division lead. What a dark time we live in. The saddest part is, much like the NFC South last season, one of those teams will be hosting a playoff game.

Nonetheless, the playoffs are even closer in fantasy football, so it’s time to buckle down and Bush Push your team over the goal line. Here’s a little QB help for this week:

Matthew Stafford, Detroit Lions: I have a hard time suggesting this man, as playing Stafford has been the world’s greatest leap of faith in 2015. Peyton Manning in Week 5 and Teddy Bridgewater last Sunday are the only two quarterbacks who failed to get over 20 points against the Oakland Raiders, however, so maybe things will be different this week.

At the same time, Stafford hasn’t scored more than 20 fantasy points since Week 7. The big reason he’s worth a shot for the QB needy is last week’s solid performance against the Green Bay Packers with 242 yards, two touchdowns, and only one interception. With a little luck, Stafford will build off last week and provide a solid backup option for those of you with a quarterback sitting out or on bye.

Tony Romo, Dallas Cowboys: After sitting out since Week 2, I think Romo should be considered a sleeper. On top of that, Romo was available in the majority of fantasy football leagues this week, so those in need had a rare opportunity to pick up a decent QB for the rest of the season.

Whether or not the Cowboys can get back into the NFC East race will be completely up to Romo, and as always he has more than enough assistance in Dez Bryant, Terrance Williams, and Jason Witten to succeed. The Miami Dolphins have given up 20 or more points to four quarterbacks this season, so a solid return to action for Romo isn’t out of the question…well, provided he doesn’t break something again.
