Joe Burrow @LV
Burrow had a bye week last week, and struggled against Cleveland, which will make him a bit of a forgotten man. But before that, he was a great play with a streak of fantastic fantasy performances. The Raiders defense has also given up a few big performances in the past month to the position.
Cam Newton v WAS
He is baaaaaack. Newton wasn’t the starter last week, but still was looked to be the guy that could finish a drive. This week he is likely to be the starter against a Washington defense that is the worst against the position and has just lost Chase Young to injury. Yes, there is the fact that Ron Rivera knows what makes Newton feel uncomfortable, but even so Newton should be able to have a good week.
Ryan Tannehill v HOU
Tannehill has been ok in the past two weeks, because he has found a way into the endzone in consecutive weeks. The Titans offense is finding itself, but Tannehill has been decent enough during this time. This week feels like a week where he has one of those massive games where he looks fantastic, against a poor Houston defense.
Kirk Cousins v GB
Cousins has been playing fine this season, making this a risky sit. The thing is, in games against the Packers, it’s been Dalvin Cook that has just run all over the team, and not Cousins airing it out. Don’t go crazy and start anyone over him, just temper expectations.
Ben Roethlisberger @LAC
He might not even play this week, but if he is available don’t play him. The Chargers defense is effective enough to put pressure on whoever plays at QB this week, and the Steelers offense isn’t exactly dynamic. It’s been a while since Roethlisberger was a reliable fantasy starter
