Cam Newton v ATL
Newton had a poor time on the field against Miami, you don’t need me to tell you that. But, if ever there was a team that was a good matchup for him to bounce back, it’s this one. Atlanta has struggled all season in limiting QBs to score on them, and Newton is a constant rushing threat. He might even be available now as a free agent in your league.
Taysom Hill @NYJ
One thing to keep your eye on is the injury to his finger. That could limit his ability to throw the ball, which could limit his ceiling but there is no denying the floor that he has. The Jets defense have struggled to limit teams running the ball on them, so there is no reason why Hill couldn’t have another big game on the ground as he had last week.
Joe Burrow v SF
Speaking of injuries to monitor, Burrow is another guy that you are going to need to check on. Burrow has been great recently and could have been even better if Ja’Marr Chase caught that pass instead of bobbling it for an INT. The 49ers defense hasn’t played fantastically against QBs this season either
Ryan Tannehill v JAX
You might be out on Tannehill already, but if you had some creeping thoughts that he would be worth starting this week, stop it! Yes, we could see the return of Julio Jones, but this game isn’t going to require the ball to be moved through the air. I mean it’s almost a yearly tradition that the Titans run for a ridiculous total against the Jags (it just won’t be Derrick Henry this year)
Derek Carr @KC
This is much more of a pump the brakes than a complete sit. Carr has been performing at a high-level this season, with an incredible passing volume this season. The thing is, the Chiefs defense has really improved in the past few weeks, and Carr could be without Darren Waller. If you have a better option, I would take it
