Matt Ryan @DAL
Ryan continues to put up strong fantasy weeks, despite missing Calvin Ridley. The start of the season was rough, but since the team has fully embraced Cordarrelle Patterson and play-action he has performed alot better. The matchup is likely to allow plenty of pass attempts, which should make Ryan a low-end QB1 this week.
Carson Wentz v JAX
Wentz is a player that never seems to get the credit he deserves when he plays well, but all of the criticism and more when he plays badly. Wentz has a streak of 7 games where he has scored at least two TDs, and 3 TDs in each of his games. This week he faces a Jacksonville defense that has struggled this season (albeit they performed incredibly against the Bills last week)
Teddy Bridgewater v PHI
Mr. Waiver Wire is a decent streaming option this week. Bridgewater has been playing well, with a number of weeks where he has scored multiple TDs in a week. The Eagles secondary aren’t a unit to avoid either, most likely a QB2, but if you are struggling for a QB this week Bridgewater would work well as a streaming option.
Jalen Hurts @DEN
This is my risky sit. The rushing floor makes it a dangerous pick, but I can’t see it really panning out this week. Denver shut down the Cowboys last week, and that is the blueprint for this week. It’s not like the Eagles have really been airing it out either. He could be a QB1 this week, but I think you could potentially have better options available.
Baker Mayfield @NE
The Browns may be without alot of their RB room, but that doesn’t mean that they are going to find much success throwing the ball. The gameplan for the Browns revolves around the ground game, and the Patriots are second best in the league at limiting QB production for fantasy. Yes, we might see more attempts with the RB room being hit badly by COVID, but I’m not banking there will be a large uptick in production.
