Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He played well in his first NFL start, completing 18-of-23 passes for 233 yards, and though he failed to throw a touchdown, he rushed for two of them. Unfortunately, he can't play the Falcons every week. But still, a quarterback with his mobility comes with a sky-high floor and can be considered a streamer almost every week. The Broncos pass defense has been much better than most expected given the lack of pass-rushing options, as quarterbacks have averaged just 6.69 yards per attempt against them, which ranks as the fourth-lowest mark in football. It's touchdowns, too, as they've allowed just a 4.20 percent touchdown-rate, which is below the league average. It's not a small sample size either, as teams have tried throwing the ball on 58.1 percent of their plays, which has amounted to 35.7 pass attempts per game. Despite that, there's been just one quarterback (Ben Roethlisberger) who's finished with 300-plus yards. That's not necessarily what we care about with Hill, though. He's a mobile one and the Broncos have allowed 5.05 yards per carry to quarterbacks, which ranks as the 10th-highest number in football. And keep in mind they lost interior linemen Mike Purcell three weeks ago, and Jurrell Casey a few weeks before that, so they're only getting worse up the middle. We've already witnessed Cam Newton rush for 76 yards and a touchdown against them, while Sam Darnold totaled 84 rushing yards and a touchdown. Hill has the looks of a high-floor low-end QB1/high-end QB2, though we shouldn't jump to play him over proven options, as he's only played one game against what might be the league's worst defense. But based on what we have seen, he looked good.I mentioned last week that you shouldn't bury Dalton for one bad game as the starter. I mean, everyone has a bad day, though his came on national television when everyone was watching. We had nine seasons worth of competent quarterback play in a worse offense with worse receiving options. We can't pretend he's fixed because of one good game, but we never should've buried him for one bad game. Throwing for 203 yards and three touchdowns was a start, but now he'll go against the defense that knocked him out cold back in Week 7 when he completed just 9-of-19 passing for 75 scoreless yards. Washington is one of six teams who've allowed fewer than 1.30 PPR points per offensive play, so seeing him struggle in that game shouldn't have been too shocking. Washington has generated a sack on 9.4 percent of dropbacks, which ranks as the second-highest number in the league, and a lot different than the Vikings last week (nearly half the percentage). On the season, Washington has allowed just four quarterbacks finish better than the QB20 against them, and just one of those games has come since Week 5. In today's passing league, it's odd to see a team allow just four quarterbacks to finish with more than 212 passing yards against them, but that's where we're at with Washington. Dalton is not someone you should aim to stream on Thanksgiving.

FantasyPros
After a top-5 finish in his starter's debut last week, Hill will look to build on that success in Week 12. He's got a tougher opponent, but his rushing abilities provide a high floor. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Broncos are 12th against fantasy QBs, but Hill had 10 rushing attempts for 51 yards and 2 TDs last week. If he is going to have that much production on the ground, he will be an upside QB2 on the road this week.
