Trey Lance vs HOU

Lance has languished at the end of deep rosters or the waiver wire the entire season, but it seems that heís about to pay off big in the fantasy finals. With Jimmy-G iffy to play, Lance should get a chance to make a start in a smash spot at home against the Texans. Lance hasnít seen the field in months, and should be better prepared than he was during his extensive playing time in Weeks 4 and 5. With a solid rushing floor and monster upside, Lance is worth a long look.

Matthew Stafford @ BAL

Joe Burrow reached his final form last week against this Ravens defense as he schooled a struggling Baltimore pass defense for the 4th most yards in NFL history. Stafford has admittedly looked bad at times (including last week's 3 INT game), but this matchup is simply too good to avoid. With a banged up backfield, look for the Rams to throw early and often. Iíd also be looking to stack OBJ if possible.

Jalen Hurts @ WTF

Two weeks ago Hurts gashed this defense for one his best games as a pro and Washington is coming off an embarrassing loss to their division rivals. Hurts has been an asset all season because of his high floor (he has no single digit scoring games) and that shouldnít change in the fantasy season finale.

Lamar Jackson vs LAR

Baltimore needs this game badly, so I think Jackson gives it a go even at less than 100%. The Rams defense hasnít quite played up to the level they should have, but have done a solid job at holding down running quarterbacks due their athleticism on the D-line. Heís nearly impossible to sit due to his rushing ability, but if his ankle slows him down, heís simply too turnover prone (career high 13 interceptions) as a passer this year to put unwavering trust in.

Derek Carr @ IND

With Wentz likely out, this game probably turns into a battle of attrition with the Colts running the ball and bleeding the clock. The Indy defense is by no means world-beaters, but with teams now taking away Hunter Renfrow, and still no Waller, Carr doesnít have enough reliable weapons to hit the big numbers youíll need this week.

Justin Herbert vs DEN

The shocking loss to the Texans last week dulls the shine of an amazing sophomore season for Herbert, but it still feels like this offense has underachieved at times. Missing the big body of Mike Williams allows defenses to shorten the field, and Denver’s strength is their boundary defense. Both teams need this game to stay alive and I’m tempering expectations for Herbert this week.
