Dak Prescott

Dak Prescott @ TEN (THU)

After taking major heat in their loss to the Jags, Prescott rebounded last week with likely his best game of the season in a win over the Eagles. With the defense slumping, Prescott and the offense have averaged well over 30 points in the last month and have scored the 3rd most points in the NFL. The fading Titans are beset by injuries on both sides of the ball, and are on life support. A wounded animal is always dangerous, but theyíve also yielded the 2nd most passing yards in the league at nearly 280 a game.

Aaron Rodgers vs MIN

A little December magic (and a lull in the schedule) have given life to the old man and his band of Packers. After the struggles heís had this season (no 300-yard games and the 11 interceptions the 2nd most in his career) itís crazy to think heíd be worth a start in the Fantasy finals, but here we are! If youíve come this far it's likely a top QB got you there, but if not, the matchup vs the maligned Viking defense should give you some hope.

Brock Purdy @ LV

Itís no secret this offense doesnít ask the quarterback to do much, and that generally works in the regular season, but it is quite shocking that Purdy has been able to be so effective when heís probably had only 40% or so of the practice reps before he became the starter. Heís completing 67% of his passes, and has scored 9 total touchdowns in his four starts. If you are forced to turn to the 7th round rookie in your Super Bowl itís not crazy to say that you could do worse!

Teddy Bridgewater @ NE

With Tua down with another head injury, Bridgewater steps back into the starting role. Statistically he fared well in that game against the Vikings, throwing for 329 yards and two scores, but thatís also the last time he saw the field as injuries of his own have kept him out of action. Rust, Foxboro in January and a Patriots defense that has generally had success against quick, timing passing games, leaves me shying away from Teddy this week.

Deshaun Watson @ WAS

Watsonís off the field stench has followed him on it, as heís been at the helm of an offense thatís struggled to reach double digits. Heís been under 200 yards passing in three of his four starts (something Brissett did only once in his 11 starts) and has accounted for only three total scores. Even the Cleveland run game has tanked after being one of the best in the league.

Malik Willis vs DAL (THU)

Willis is the type of quarterback that needs a team’s full commitment to build around, especially at this stage of his neophyte career. While the Ravens did that with Lamar Jackson, understandably the Titans have not done that with a rookie backup. Trying to retool the offense, while dealing with a depleted roster, AND fighting for playoff survival puts Willis in a really bad place to help his team or yours.
