Cam Newton @MIA
Newton is truly back, with consecutive weeks of scoring on the ground and through the air. The Dolphins aren’t a unit that you need to avoid either. After messing around with replacements, it’s Newton that has gotten the Panthers truly rolling.
Joe Burrow v PIT
The Steelers defense has really taken a step back this season, with some players moving on, and injury hitting the unit hard too. Burrow has been consistent this season with multiple scores in the last eight games, he should be a solid start in this divisional matchup.
Russell Wilson @WAS
You held into Wilson while he was out, then he returned and now you aren’t sure if that was a good idea. This week will tell you if it was or not. If Wilson can’t get it done against a Washington defense without arguably its most talented player then it might be worth starting someone else going forward. Don’t forget, Washington are the worst team at defending the position.
Ryan Tannehill @NE
Since Derrick Henry was injured, I feel I’ve been waiting for Tannehill to be consistent for fantasy. He hasn’t been. Sure, some of that has been the other injuries that have hit the team, but he also just hasn’t looked comfortable without the play-action Henry generates.
Carson Wentz v TB
Wentz has been doing what he has needed to do the past two weeks, which isn’t much for fantasy. Instead, the running game has stepped up, with Jonathan Taylor having a historic game against Buffalo last time out. Equally, this matchup isn’t one to target, with Tampa giving up an average of 17.6 points to the position.
