Fantasy football start/sit advice, Week 11: Case Keenum faces great matchup

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Case Keenum has created a nice case as an asset in fantasy leagues. Low-hanging fruit puns aside, should you start him against the Raiders?

The milk has gone bad for the Houston Texans lately. They have the NFL's longest losing streak and they've quickly moved themselves out of the playoff picture after winning the AFC South last season.

They've finally swallowed their pride and have been starting Case Keenum at quarterback. Usually when a team turns to a rookie QB, they tend to keep one hand tied behind his back with conservative play calling. That hasn't been the way the Texans have gone about it, though. Keenum threw the ball 43 times last week, completing 22 of those for 201 yards and three scores. The completion percentage is ugly, but the Texans keep throwing the ball down the field.

This week they get a terrific matchup against the Oakland Raiders. These same Raiders that have been smoked by Eli Manning an the New York Giants last week, and of course they gave up one of the biggest passing days in NFL history against Nick Foles and the Philadelphia Eagles.

Fantasy impact: If you have any doubts about your fantasy QB, Keenum is worth a look as a low-end QB1 play. Although, he does come with some risk.
