Pat Fitzmaurice
FantasyPros
 Coming off a three-TD performance on the road against a good Panthers defense, Heinicke returns home to face a Seattle pass defense that ranks 25th in DVOA and is giving up 279.6 passing yards per game. Heinicke is averaging 18.4 fantasy points per game, making him the QB18 in that category among quarterbacks with at least five starts. He's the QB15 this week.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
Jackson wasn't healthy enough to go last week as he was dealing with an illness, but it sounds like he's returning to practice and should be good to go for Week 12. In a matchup against the Browns defense that's allowing the 9th-most fantasy points to opposing QBs, Jackson's worth plugging right back into your lineup this week as a top-5 play. 
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Browns are 6th against fantasy quarterbacks over the last 5 weeks, but I still like Jackson as an elite QB1 at home coming off a missed week due to an illness.
