There are no guarantees that one of the others will be blinded out. You're sitting on ~12bb's and a couple more orbits & if the blinds go up, you might find yourself being the shortstack on the table.
If your stack was close to the size of the CL (ie. if stack sizes were 5,500 6,000 1,000 & 1,000) and CL shoves preflop,... QQ is a clear fold.
