Jalen Hurts @NYJ
The expectation would’ve been for Hurts to do really well against the Giants. But that didn’t happen, but you shouldn’t move on from him just yet. Hurts still has a good floor, with this rushing ability and the Jets defense has allowed plenty on the ground this season. This is a bounce-back game for Hurts.
Derek Carr v WAS
Carr has been putting together a string of good performances this season, which has put him at the top of the league in passing yards this season. This matchup is great for him to stretch that lead too, as Washington Football Team have struggled to limit teams through the air.
Joe Burrow v LAC
The Bengals are likely to be forced to put some points this week against a Chargers team that manages to score at will. That is unless the Bengals defense get on top as they did against the Steelers. But given the pressure that Herbert has had in the pocket, he is likely to be able to overcome that and force the Bengals to score.
Russell Wilson v SF
After his performance last week, I need to see it on the field before I can put Wilson back in my lineup. The Washington game was an opportunity to get right, and while he didn’t disappoint with the box score, it wasn’t the level of performance that I expected from him. The 49ers have also started turning the screw defensively too. It’s not a ‘sit at all costs’ but just don’t auto-start him, you might have a better option.
Matt Ryan v TB
Ryan is a guy that I constantly am getting hurt by. He has the individual and surrounding talent to put up fantasy numbers, but just hasn’t the past few weeks. I’m not expecting a similar performance to what we saw at the start of the season.
