It’s Week 11 the 2020 NFL season and fantasy football is already testing players. The 2020 season is proving to be full of hard decisions in selecting the right waiver wire claims and knowing when to drop a player. But now players are needing navigate the COVID-19 situation as it disrupts games and schedules across the league.
It’s time to make the most crucial decision of them all–setting your lineups! Let’s about the Quarterbacks.

Based on your league set up and scoring, your starting fantasy roster could hinge completely on the signal caller or it could be the most insignificant of skill players. In super-flex or two-quarterback leagues, it’s often the right combination of the two that pushes you over the edge. Start the wrong guy and it could be the difference of 20-30 points.
Let’s see which ones look good for Week 11.
Kirk Cousins, Minnesota Vikings vs. Dallas Cowboys
Cousins is a mild START recommendation this week because he has been such a slow starter in games each week. While I wouldn’t say it’s as easy as saying if you can run on a team, the Vikings are going to prefer to run. Cousins’ best games have come against Detroit, Tennessee, Atlanta, and Green Bay, and all but the Falcons have been soft on running backs.
The Cowboys have been getting better at defending the run after Leighton Vander Esch and Sean Lee returned from injuries. So I do think this is a good week as any to start Cousins. He certainly used Justin Jefferson a lot and used Adam Theilen to finish off drives in the red zone. And what’s to say that Dalvin Cook can’t take a swing pass and turn it into a big gain? I could understand if you have players with higher ceilings, and are more consistent, but if you don’t have that luxury, Cousins is worth the stream.
