Start of the Week –
Tom Brady vs Atlanta Falcons
Tom Brady scored an efficient 15 points last weekend against the Vikings, but they ran most of the time so that’s not that terrible. He now faces a defense in the Atlanta Falcons that is dead last against quarterbacks. With his weapons, fire him up.
Drew Brees/Taysom Hill vs Kansas City Chiefs
Drew Brees was activated off injured reserve and has begun practicing so whether it be him or Taysom Hill, I like either of them this week despite the matchup against the Kansas City Chiefs. Their defense gave up a big amount of points against Tua Tagovailoa last weekend. It is a big game so put it on the line gambling style.
Ben Roethlisberger vs Cincinnati Bengals
Big Ben has gone down in production in the last two weeks, but you could chop it up to the interceptions and the dropped passes by receivers. It is hard to ignore him though when he and the Steelers take on the weakened Cincinnati Bengals.
Ryan Tannehill vs Detroit Lions
Tannehill has been on a roll as of late as he scored two touchdowns last weekend against the Jacksonville Jaguars. He now goes against the Detroit Lions who just gave up a huge amount of points to Aaron Rodgers and the Packers last weekend.
Jared Goff vs New York Jets
Goff let Cam Akers take the offense on the run last Thursday against the New England Patriots. He has a big chance of proving himself against a terrible Jets defense this week. Cam Akers should get a good amount of run offense in, but Goff will be there to strike when ready.
Jalen Hurts vs Arizona Cardinals
Philip Rivers vs Houston Texans
Mitch Trubisky vs Minnesota Vikings
Sit of the Week –
Cam Newton vs Miami Dolphins
Newton got benched last weekend against the Rams and their impressive defensive showdown. I do not like his chances against a stout Miami defense after their intercepted Patrick Mahomes three times last weekend. Keep Cam on the bench.
Baker Mayfield vs New York Giants
Baker played out of his mind against the divisional Baltimore Ravens last weekend scoring three total touchdowns. However, I don’t believe you should chase the points here. He goes up against an improved and learning Giants defense that is better against the pass than on the ground.
Tua Tagovailoa vs New England Patriots
Tua was amazing in his match with the Chiefs getting over 30 fantasy points. However, it wasn’t enough to get the win. He’ll now go against a Patriots defense for the first time in his career, and they haven’t been kind to quarterbacks in the past. Just look what they did to Justin Herbert.
Matt Ryan vs Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Matt Ryan has sucked this season in terms of fantasy. He only scored seven points against a bad Chargers defense last weekend when he threw three interceptions. I don’t like his chances against a Bucs defense that has had its hiccups, but should prove a hard task for Ryan and the Falcons.
Teddy Bridgewater vs Green Bay Packers
Bridgewater didn’t do that great against the Broncos last weekend. He didn’t have his top weapon in D.J. Moore, but he still didn’t throw a single touchdown. He instead ran one in. The Packers are much better at defending the pass then the run, so the Panthers might use Mike Davis more than Teddy in this one. Sit him out this one.
Kirk Cousins va Chicago Bears
Gardner Minshew vs Baltimore Ravens
Brandon Allen vs Pittsburgh Steelers
