Unbelievably we are racing towards the finish of another NFL season. Every decision is magnified with your fantasy titles hanging in the balance, so who should we trust? Who should we ignore? Let’s take a look:

  1. Lamar Jackson – Baltimore Ravens – vs. New York Jets
  2. Patrick Mahomes – Kansas City Chiefs – vs. Denver
  3. Deshaun Watson – Houston Texans – at Tennessee
  4. Dak Prescott – Dallas Cowboys – vs. Los Angeles Rams
  5. Drew Brees – New Orleans Saints – vs. Indianapolis
  6. Jameis Winston – Tampa Bay Buccaneers – at Detroit
  7. Aaron Rodgers – Green Bay Packers – vs. Chicago
  8. Ryan Tannehill – Tennessee Titans – vs. Houston
  9. Jimmy Garoppolo – San Francisco 49ers – vs. Atlanta
  10. Russell Wilson – Seattle Seahawks – at Carolina
  11. Carson Wentz – Philadelphia Eagles – at Washington
  12. Baker Mayfield – Cleveland Browns – at Arizona
  13. Josh Allen – Buffalo Bills – at Pittsburgh
  14. Matt Ryan – Atlanta Falcons – at San Francisco
  15. Mitchell Trubisky – Chicago Bears – at Green Bay
  16. Ryan Fitzpatrick – Miami Dolphins – at New York Giants
  17. Kyler Murray – Arizona Cardinals – vs. Cleveland
  18. Tom Brady – New England Patriots – at Cincinnati
  19. Jared Goff – Los Angeles Rams – at Dallas
  20. Kirk Cousins – Minnesota Vikings – at Los Angeles Chargers
  21. Gardner Minshew II – Jacksonville Jaguars – at Oakland
  22. Derek Carr – Oakland Raiders – vs. Jacksonville
  23. Jacoby Brissett – Indianapolis Colts – at New Orleans
  24. Eli Manning – New York Giants – vs. Miami
  25. Phillip Rivers – Los Angeles Chargers – vs. Minnesota

Thoughts:

  • The problem for Jameis Winston has been turnovers, with 23 interceptions and 9 fumbles.  Of course the Lions have 5 INT all season, and if that’s not a concern as long as he’s healthy Winston is going to be a high-level option (he did suffer a “little bitty fracture” in his thumb in Week 14, but didn’t miss time).  He’s thrown for 1,708 yards over the past four weeks with 11 TD vs. 10 INT, and given the matchup is a borderline Top 5 option.
  • Over the past four weeks Drew Brees has thrown for 12 TD, with 3+ TD in three of the four games.  Coming off an impressive performance against the 49ers (349 yards, 5 TD and 0 INT) and considering the struggles of Alvin Kamara, it’s easy to imagine the team again putting the game in his hands.  With a fairly favorable matchup against the Colts, utilize him with confidence.
  • The Miami Dolphins continue to prove that they aren’t tanking, with Ryan Tannehill making an impact both running and throwing the football.  Put that into a matchup against the pitiful New York Giants defense and he suddenly becomes a QB1 option with fantasy titles hanging in the balance.
  • The Houston Texans just allowed Drew Lock and the Denver Broncos to throw for 309 yards, 3 TD and 1 INT and have allowed 28 TD vs. 7 INT on the season.  That speaks to the upside of Ryan Tannehill, who has been rolling (9 TD vs. 1 INT over the past four weeks) including 2+ TD in four straight games. 
  • While the 49ers are a run first offense, Jimmy Garoppolo and company proved that they can have big games in the air as well.  Against an Atlanta defense that’s allowed the third most points to opposing quarterbacks, he instantly becomes a viable QB1.
  • Over the past four weeks Mitchell Trubisky has thrown for 1,223 yards, 11 TD and 5 INT, including 3 TD in each of his past two games.  While Green Bay isn’t a particularly easy matchup, keeping him out of the QB1 discussion, he will be a viable QB2 given the way he’s played.

  1. Hi,

    Russell Wilson moved to 10th spot. Would you start Dak Prescott over Wilson considering the Rams defense crushed Seattle last week?

    Thanks.
