We've now watched Darnold post back-to-back top-eight performances, so are you trusting him? He's completed exactly 19-of-30 passes each of the last two weeks, so it hasn't even been volume. The Raiders present a plus-matchup for quarterbacks, though you wouldn't know it by Ryan Finley's final stat line. They actually played really well against Philip Rivers in Week 10 as well. Over the last two games, they've allowed just 30-of-62 passing for 322 yards, two touchdowns, and four interceptions. Both games were at home, while they'll be traveling across the country for this game. It's somewhat crazy to see what the Raiders have done given all the injuries they've dealt with, as they've lost starting safeties Karl Joseph and Johnathan Abram, starting linebacker Vontaze Burfict, starting cornerback Gareon Conley, and were without starting nickel cornerback Lamarcus Joyner last week. So, what happens when a surging quarterback and a surging defense meet? Again, it helps that Darnold is at home while the Raiders are making the longest trip possible. While I've been one of those willing to trust Darnold over the last few matchups, this one is a bit murkier, as the Raiders pass-rush has been extremely good over the last month. He should be considered a middling QB2 with a wide range of outcomes.It wasn't a great sight seeing someone you're thinking about streaming get benched in the final three minutes of a game, but here we are. We're put in a tough place here, as Matt Nagy has allowed Trubisky take advantage of good matchups on the schedule. He totaled 231/3 against the Redskins and 173/3 against the Lions two weeks ago. The Giants have allowed a massive 8.80 yards per attempt this year, which ranks as the second-worst mark only to the Bengals. There's really no bad sign for streaming quarterbacks against them, as 8-of-10 quarterbacks have totaled at least 20 fantasy points against them, all finishing as top-10 options in that week. That's despite just two quarterbacks totaling more than 35 pass attempts. The Giants did generate pressure their last two games on Sam Darnold and Dak Prescott, but on average, rank No. 27 in average pressure-rate. You know exactly what you're getting into by streaming Trubisky, though I'd say there's more good than bad in this matchup, making him a middling QB2 with upside for a top-12 performance.

 Apparently the supposed hip injury wasn't too serious, since Mitch Trubisky practiced in full and is expected to play in Week 12. He sees a matchup against the worst-graded cornerback group in the league, yet he should still be avoided in fantasy due to his volatile performances and overall inability to play QB well.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Darnold popped as an excellent streaming option in Week 11, throwing for four touchdowns and just under 300 yards. The Raiders give up the sixth-most passing yards per game, making Darnold a viable streaming option again. He is still very risky due to his inconsistency, though.
