Ryan Tannehill

Josh Allen vs IND

Iíve been playing fantasy football since the mid 90ís, so I admittedly rely more on experience than analytics when it comes to this column. My gut (and a little of the numbers) tell me the guy who is the presumptive MVP leader looks like a good bet against a Colts defense who has given up a league worst 23 touchdown passes. This defense has had a heck of a time holding leads, and I think the Bills go real up-tempo in this game in an effort to grab an early lead in order to take the Colts off their run game. Allen carved this defense up in last yearís playoffs, and should repeat the feat in Week 11.

Dak Prescott @ KC

KC got their mojo back by blasting their division rivals on the road last week, but a deflated Raiders offense is no match for the might and talent of Dallas. Prescott was masterful in carving up the Falcons last week, and the Cowboys have the unique ability to tailor game plans to morph on a weekly basis. I think Dallas comes out trying to establish the run early, but I can see this game quickly developing into a track meet, setting up a big fantasy day for everyone involved.

Ryan Tannehill vs HOU

The little engine that could down in Nashville keeps rolling. The Titans have somehow held things together offensively without their world moving bellcow running back. Tannehill somehow has racked up identical 19 for 27 days passing the last two weeks, and has salvaged his fantasy days with a few rushing touchdowns. The Texans donít have the bodies to keep A.J. Brown in check this week, and as long as things donít get messy too quickly, Tannehill should be good for a 2+ touchdown day.

Carson Wentz @ BUF

Wentz is a far cry from his glory days in Philly, but heís been more than serviceable this year for the Colts. The issues this week have more to do with the opponent and the fact this offense now runs through Jonathan Taylor almost exclusively. If the game stays tight, and Reich has his way, Taylor is going to run it 25+ times, and Wentz wonít have to throw much into the teeth of the Bills defense.

Matt Ryan vs NE (THU)

Arthur Smith has not gotten enough credit for the work heís done with this Atlanta offense. They have no running game to speak of, their stud wide receiver has been AWOL most of the year, and Ryan is a fading vet with limited arm strength and mobility. Despite coming off a huge game against the Saints the week prior, Ryan and the Falcons were exposed last week against Dallas, and face a surging Pats team on a short week. With Patterson iffy at best, Ryan has almost no shot Thursday night.

Taylor Heinicke @ CAR

Heinicke played within the offense, limited negative plays, and gave the WTF a chance to beat the Bucs last week. Kudos are due, but this week’s matchup against the rejuvenated Panthers is a tough spot. Carolina has yielded the 2nd fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks this season, and I just don’t think Heinicke has the patience to be conservative yet again, especially with no healthy tight ends and a running game that still isn’t threatening. Carolina will double up McLaurin and force Heinike into making some mistakes.
