Plug em in
- Mathew Stafford (DET Lions):
- Plays the ATL Falcons this week who are allowing the second highest yards to opposing QBs at 361.3 YPG.
- Lions and Stafford are 2-1 since Kenny Golladay returned.
- Stafford has thrown over 200 yards every game and is averaging almost 2 touchdowns a game.
- A must win game for a Lions team in a tough division.
- Gardner Minshew (JAC Jaguars):
- Minshew has been on the struggle bus the last couple weeks but still has continued to put up at least 18 or more fantasy points each of those weeks.
- In fact Minshew only has one game under 18 points and that was against an underrated Miami defense.
- Minshew plays the Chargers this week who have allowed 309.4 YPG to opposing quarterbacks which is the fourth most in the league.
- Teddy Bridgewater (CAR Panthers):
- The Panthers take on the Saints this week in a must win divisional game.
- The Saints get MT back this week so expect this game to be an offensive shootout.
- The Saints have allowed 265.4 YPG to opposing QBs.
- The Saints have also allowed 23 fantasy points on average to opposing QBs
- Other plugs: Kyler Murray (ARI Cardinals), Ben Roethlisberger (PIT Steelers), Cam Newton (NE Patriots)
Sit em out
- Jared Goff (LA Rams):
- Goff is a matchup dependent QB, he performs well in easy matchups and yet struggles in even the slightly tough ones.
- Goff plays Chicago this week who are the toughest team against opposing QBs, they allow a league low 12.5 fantasy points per game.
- Goff has also thrown a pick in 4/6 games he has played.
- Derrick Carr (LV Raiders):
- Carr has been going off this year while helping the Raiders go 3-2 so far.
- Carr however, has a tough matchup this week against a Tamba Bay defense allowing a mere 14.0 fantasy points a game.
- Josh Jacobs has also been struggling which puts more pressure on Carr to carry the load.
- Deshaun Watson (HOU Texans):
- Watson has been performing well since Bill O Brien was fired.
- Be wary starting him this week against a tough Packers defense.
- Packers have allowed an average of 17.9 fantasy points to QBs which ranks as 23rd.
- Packers also have the best CB in the league right now in Jaire Alexander who will likely lock down Will Fuller V.
- Other sits: Jimmy Garoppolo (SF 49ers), Drew Brees (NO Saints), Andy Dalton (DAL Cowboys)
Plug em in
- Kenny Golladay (DET Lions):
- Golladay has scored more than 14 fantasy points in each of his three starts.
- He has not had his breakout game yet however.
- This week is a perfect time for a breakout game as Golladay plays the ATL Falcons.
- Falcons have allowed the fifth most fantasy points to WRs at 30.3 fantasy points a game.
- Look for Golladay to break out this week.
- DJ Chark (JAC Jaguars):
- Chark hasn’t performed as well as owners hoped in 2020.
- Chark has had only one game over 13 points this year and that was week 4.
- Look for Chark to bounce back in an easy matchup against the Chargers.
- The injured Chargers defense is allowing 22 fantasy points on average to opposing WRs.
- Dionte Johnson (PIT Steelers):
- Dionte Johnson hasn’t truly played since week 3.
- With Claypool’s emergence and JuJu’s decline I think Johnson will have the same role.
- This week Johnson has a great matchup against a Titans defense who are allowing 28.7 fantasy points a game to opposing WRs.
- This is also a matchup against two 5-0 teams, it will be a shootout.
- Other plugs: Robby Anderson (CAR Panthers), Darius Slayton (NY Giants), Jamison Crowder (NY Jets)
Sit em in
- Will Fuller V (HOU Texans):
- Will Fuller is playing against Jaire Alexander this week who is the number 1 rated CB according to PFF.
- That is it. Fuller will have a tough time this week.
- Robert Woods (LA Rams):
- Woods will be up against a tough Bears defense allowing the 4th fewest fantasy points to opposing WRs.
- The Bears CB duo is one of the best in the league with Kyle Fuller and Jaylon Johnson.
- Jared Goff will be struggling as well against the Bears defense.
- Deebo Samuel (SF 49ers):
- Deebo will be up against former DPOY Stephon Gilmore.
- New England is very tough against opposing quarterbacks as well, ranking 27th.
- WR1s against the Patriots have struggled in the past.
- Other sits: Kneal Harry (NE Patriots), Michael Gallup (DAL Cowboys), DJ Moore (CAR Panthers)
Plug em in
- Antonio Gibson (WAS Football Team):
- Antonio Gibson is producing but isn’t getting the carries he deserves.
- This week however, Washington has a great matchup against a Dallas defense that has allowed 22.4 points to opposing backs.
- Gibson could have a huge game if he can get to his explosive quick start.
- Should be an even matchup for Washington in a Dak-less Cowboys team.
- Todd Gurley (ATL Falcons):
- Gurley has been looking good recently and is getting fed.
- Last week Gurley saw 20 carries in a tough matchup.
- This week Gurley has a favorable matchup against a Detroit defense, currently allowing 25.4 points to opposing backs which is also the 4th most.
- David Johnson (HOU Texans):
- Texans offense has been revived recently and along with them their run game flourished.
- Since Bill O’Brien’s departure, DJ has actually seen an increase in carries (15+)
- This week the Texans take on the Packers who have a good secondary and pass rush but allow RBs to average 28 fantasy points a game (second most!).
- Other plugs: Aaron Jones (GB Packers), Ronald Jones (TB Buccaneers), Justin Jackson (LA Chargers)
Sit em out
- Niners RBs:
- Raheem Mostert is out for 3 weeks once again.
- Jerrick Mckinnon and Jeff Wilson Jr. are likely to fill in for Mostert.
- Niners do have a tough matchup this week against a Patriots defense.
- Patriots defense is allowing only 14.8 fantasy points on average to RBs, the 4th lowest in the league.
- At best only Mckinnon is worth a flex as he gets dump offs but Wilson and Hasty should be benched this week.
- Patriots RBs:
- Patriots RBs have an even tougher matchup against the Niners defense allowing only 12.8 fantasy points per game to opposing backs which is the second least in the whole league.
- The Patriots backfield is also a huge mess with James White, Damien Harris, Rex Burkehead and JJ Taylor.
- I would avoid starting any of these this week as Niners have shut down even pass catching backs.
- Clyde Edwards-Helaire (KC Chiefs):
- This one is simple.
- Le’veon Bell was signed and if he can play this week he will most likely split the backfield with CEH.
- CEH also finds himself in a tough matchup against the Broncos.
- Broncos are allowing a league low, 12.1 fantasy points to opposing backs.
- CEH broke out last week but he did have 3 games under 15 fantasy points as the Chiefs sole back, I would expect another one of those games and if Bell plays CEH will most likely score less than 10 fantasy points.
