The Shot Caller's Report - Wk 17 Quarterbacks

Ryan Tannehill

Justin Herbert @ KC

One of the best rookie quarterback seasons of all time comes to its conclusion this week against a KC team that will likely rest all of their impact defensive starters. Despite not having Keenan Allen for the finale, Herbert should be able to move the ball at will. The former Duck has had one of the highest fantasy floors of any quarterback this season and with a topsy-turvy Week 17 on tap, the rook makes for a top-5 play in any flavor format.

Ryan Tannehill @ HOU

The only thing stopping Tannehill from a big week is that Henry might rush for 300 yards! 8th in the NFL with a career high 32 passing touchdowns, the Titans need this game to keep their playoff hopes alive. Until last week’s dud in Lambeau this Titan offense had been one of the hottest in the league. They get back on track against a Houston team dragging their corpse into the offseason.

Kirk Cousins @ DET

The Lions gave up a historic first half against Brady last week and with no Dalvin Cook, look for Cousins and this passing game to come out firing in the finale. Half of the Detroit sideline, from players to coaches, are dead men walking and it showed last week. Over the last 5 weeks this defense has gifted BY FAR the most fantasy points to quarterbacks, including 17 touchdown passes and over 1,600 yards. Coming off an embarrassing loss to the Saints means Zimmer will have this team prepared to play well and win going into the off-season.

Kyler Murray @ LAR

Beat up against a defense like the Rams isn’t where you want to be. Suffering a lower leg injury on the last play of the game last week against the 49ers, Murray is going to play at less than 100%. Murray had one of his lower scoring games a few weeks ago in their 38-28 loss to L.A. and any limitation to his scrambling ability will be a huge production downgrade. In a desperate game for two teams running on fumes, I don’t trust Murray and the offense.

Jalen Hurts vs WAS

Hurts is the perfect example of what a mobile quarterback can do to jumpstart an offense. With a horribly disfigured offensive line, Hurts’ mobility has allowed the Eagles offense to sustain drives and keep the team in games. Hurts has combined his rushing floor with surprising passing prowess going over 300 yards in his last two games. Unfortunately Washington sports the deadliest D-line in the NFL, and Hurts is going to have to pull off major heroics to reach the lofty stats he’s put up since becoming a starter.

Tom Brady vs ATL

With little to no playoff seeding mobility, I think there is a scant chance the starting offense plays more than a few series. In fact, as soon as Evans sets his yardage record, I bet Arians pulls them all off the field. As favorable as this matchup would likely be, it’s simply too risky to rely on Tampa Tom.
