3 Quarterbacks For Your OwnersBox Lineup

Properly evaluating the quarterback position on OwnersBox is the most important thing to do when building your lineup. With there being an additional SuperFlex position you will want to include two quarterbacks in your lineup. Extracting value from the lower 15 priced players at the position is extremely helpful when it comes to being able to spend up at other positions. Let’s get to 3 of my favorite low to mid tier options for week 13 in fantasy football.

Quarterbacks

Jimmy Garoppolo ($6300) vs Seattle Seahawks

The 49ers quarterback has been playing some solid ball for fantasy managers lately, he’s averaging 20 fantasy points a game on OwnersBox. A big reason for that has been attributed to taking care of the football as he’s averaging 0.4 INTs per game in that span. Garoppolo doesn’t have much of a ceiling but as the second quarterback in your lineup he can give you a solid floor.

This week the 49ers play divisional rival Seattle who are ranked 27th in passing DVOA and a PFF coverage grade of 48.1, the sixth worst in the NFL. A big reason for their poor pass defense is their inability to get after the quarterback. The Seahawks sack rate is 3.9%, the second worst in the league. Seattle also only gives up 3.9 yards per carry on the ground, so it would benefit Kyle Shanahan to put the ball in the air.

One interesting wrinkle that should help with Garoppolo’s passing output is the absence of Deebo Samuel. His production in the outside run game was something Shanahan implemented more frequently and it spelled the passing game. WIth Samuel’s absence I think the 49ers go the more traditional route in the air, trying to get the ball to their two best offensive players in Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle.

Quarterbacks

Ben Roethlisberger ($5500) vs Baltimore Ravens

Has Ben Roethlisberger been playing good football this season? Not in the slightest. But after seeing what the Ravens did to Nick Chubb and Kareem Hunt last week, I have a pretty good idea of what type of game plan the Steelers will have on Sunday. We’ll likely see an offense that replicates the 2020 version that threw the ball 42.6 times per game (1st in NFL).

The Ravens are ferocious against the run, giving up just 4.1 opponent yards per carry. 29% of all runs against Baltimore result in a tackle at or behind the line scrimmage, far and away the best rate in the league. Najee Harris has lacked efficiency behind the Steelers offensive line all season. The team cannot get behind schedule, especially against the Ravens #1 ranked third down defense.

Could Roethlisberger turn the ball over too much with all these passing attempts? Certainly. But it’s worth the upside when the Ravens are giving up big plays in the air consistently. Baltimore is last in the NFL in opponent yards per pass completion, giving up 12.7 yards per completion. They’re also tied for 24th in interceptions forced, so perhaps that back breaking turnover never comes. If I’ve convinced you to play Big Ben this week, stacking him with Chase Claypool provides the ultimate upside.

Quarterbacks

Derek Carr ($6400) vs Washington Football Team

I’m not feeling great about Carr in DFS tournament formats as he may be a chalky play. But if you’re streaming the quarterback position in season long leagues then the Raiders quarterback is an excellent start in week 13. Carr has either thrown for 300 yards or 2 touchdowns in 8 of his 11 starts this season.

Carr has an excellent opportunity to meet both 300 passing yards and 2 touchdowns against Washington, something he’s done a handful of times this season. The Football Team is giving up the 3rd most passing yards per game and 2.4 passing touchdowns per game in 2021.

The Raiders will be fine without Darren Waller against this defense and will likely be throwing the ball a fair bit considering Washington is pretty stout against the run. They rank 7th in defensive rushing DVOA.
