As we do every week, let’s take a look at the fantasy football players who performed well in Week 11 despite being mostly unowned.

Each week, one quarterback, two running backs, two wide receivers, and one tight end make the list. In order to be eligible for inclusion, the player must have been owned in less than 25 percent of ESPN fantasy football leagues.

The list starts off with a quarterback who has had two quality games in place of injured Matthew Stafford and could be a quality Week 12 filler for quarterbacks on byes.

1

Quarterback - Jeff Driskel, Lions (209 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 51 rushing yards, 1 rushing touchdown)

In his seventh career start (five with the Bengals last season), Driskel accounted for three touchdowns in a game for the first time in his career. He now has 88 rushing yards in the two games he has replaced the injured Matthew Stafford.

2

Running back - Tony Pollard, Cowboys (12 rushing yards, 4 receptions, 44 receiving yards, 1 receiving touchdown, 1 2-pt conversion)

Also making this list in Week 3, Pollard (drafted in the sixth round in 2019) scored on a 21-yard reception early in the second quarter on Sunday for his first career receiving touchdown. His four receptions nearly equaled his total of five in nine games entering Week 11.
