We seemed to go back to the 2019 Seahawks offense in Week 11, where Wilson threw the ball just 28 times. Lack of competition was part of the cause, but you have to wonder if the coaching staff wants to slowly get back to the run-heavy ways after Wilson turned the ball over seven times in the previous four games. On top of that, the running backs are all going to be healthy for this game. Still, Wilson has thrown for two-plus touchdowns in 9-of-10 games and has rushed for 42-plus yards in four of his last six games, so his fantasy value remains in the elite conversation, as he's still posted 20-plus fantasy points in 9-of-10 games. When you think of the Eagles defense, do you think of an elite unit? Probably not, but they're close from an efficiency standpoint. There are just six teams who've allowed fewer than 1.30 PPR points per offensive play and the Eagles are one of them. The good news is that they've allowed 6.44 yards per carry to quarterbacks, which is easily the highest mark in football. Because of that, quarterbacks have totaled 322 yards and two touchdowns on the ground. Wilson is likely going to have to do some dancing, as the Eagles do generate a sack on 9.39 percent of dropbacks, the third-highest mark in the league. Because of that, teams have thrown the ball just 53.5 percent of the time against them, which ranks as the fourth-lowest mark in the league. When they do throw, the Eagles have allowed 7.12 yards per attempt, which is essentially the league average. They've also benefitted from touchdown-luck, allowing a touchdown on just 3.96 percent of attempts, which ranks seventh-lowest. One thing you need to know, though, is that the Eagles have had one of the easiest schedules in the league, and that's proven by the fact that quarterbacks have averaged 4.8 percent more fantasy points against them than they have in their other games. Go ahead and start Wilson as a QB1 and feel relatively confident about it.His 75 percent completion-rate over the previous two weeks didn't carry over to Week 11 where he completed just 17-of-29 passes against a Titans defense that had been abused by quarterbacks as of late. After throwing for three-plus touchdowns in nine of his previous 16 games, Jackson hasn't thrown for more than two touchdowns in any of his last nine games. Fortunately, he's rushed for at least 45 yards in 9-of-10 games, bringing a floor that allows him to stay in lineups. The last time he played against the Steelers (Week 8), he totaled 208 yards, two touchdowns, and two interceptions through the air, while rushing a season-high 16 times for 65 yards. The Steelers have allowed just 1.22 PPR points per offensive snap to their opponents, which is the second-lowest number in the league to only the Bears. Since Week 3 of last year, the Steelers defense has allowed precisely one quarterback to finish as a top-12 quarterback, and it was the QB9 performance back in Week 11 of last year. We're talking about a 24-game sample. They've allowed a league-low 54.9 percent completion-rate, 6.67 yards per attempt (3rd-lowest), 4.36 percent touchdown-rate (13th-lowest), and generate a sack on 9.92 percent of dropbacks (highest mark in NFL). The Steelers are also one of just four teams who've still yet to allow a rushing touchdown to a quarterback. Heck, all-in-all, the Steelers have allowed their opponents a league-low 17.4 points per game. We know the Ravens like to run the ball, as they call a pass play just 48.1 percent of the time, but they'll have to adjust against the Steelers, as opponents have thrown the ball 61.7 percent of the time against them. The bottom line here is that if Jackson can't get it done through the air, he's not likely to offer QB1 value. He's just a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 for this game considering his lack of stability through the air.

Wilson had a fairly rough outing against Arizona last week but still finished as a QB1.He'll have a great chance to improve on his production against a struggling Philly secondary.Lamar has finished with just one top-12 week across his last four contests. Pittsburgh presents a challenging task for last year's MVP, but Jackson should be fired up for this important divisional clash. L-Jax can be utilized as a backend QB1 for Week 12.
Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Eagles are 8th against fantasy QBs, but Wilson should be a solid QB1 on the road in a tough matchup against a team with a good D that has to play with a turnover prone offense.Jackson really isn't struggling, he is averaging a healthy 18.86 fantasy points over his last 4 games. He has just not been able to duplicate his historic 2019 season. Jackson is still a low-end QB1 on the road this week against a tough Steelers D.
Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
 Jackson just simply hasn't been good as a passer this season. While he was highly effective last year, he's regressed and defenses are giving him fits this season. Since he's not bringing much upside as a passer, and he's not breaking away many long runs this year, it's hard to feel excited about plugging him into your starting lineups as anything more than a low-end QB1. Against the Steelers defense, that shut him down a few weeks ago, Jackson's a low-end QB1/high-end QB2 in my rankings.
