The Shot Caller's Report - Wk 3 Quarterbacks

Matthew Stafford @ ARI

Itís been an up and down start for Stafford and the Rams offense. While heís completing over 70% of his passes, heís been careless with the football, throwing five interceptions already. Arizona pulled out a miracle on Sunday, but the Cardinal defense has been a sieve, yielding the 3rd-most fantasy points to quarterbacks. They are aggressive, but undisciplined at times and Stafford should be able to hit a few deep balls and limit his turnovers against a secondary who has yet to pick off a pass. Vegas expects some points this week with an over under of 50.5, and so do I.

Kirk Cousins

Kirk Cousins vs DET

As scrappy and gritty as the Lions have played over the first two weeks of the season, the defense has simply not been great. They were carved up by Jalen Hurts in Week 1, and Carson Wentz led a furious 2nd half comeback only to fall a few plays short. Cousins stunk up the joint on Monday night as he has a tendency to do, but this game is back home in a comfy early afternoon slot. Detroit doesnít have anyone to cover Justin Jefferson which should help put Cousins in a great bounce back spot.

Marcus Mariota @ SEA

I donít love this pick, but quarterback play across the league is a bit of a mess. Half a dozen teams are trotting out starters that they shouldnít be, but have to. Atlanta has lost two close games, and Mariota has looked as good as heís had since early in his career. Heís got a solid floor because of his legs, and should be able to complete some passes down the field against a depleted Seattle secondary.

Russell Wilson vs SF

There ainít much cookiní going on in Denver yet this season, with Wilson and the Denver offense struggling to score 17 points in a game. Clock management and red zone offense have been dreadful, and there doesnít seem to be an identity yet on this team. Most concerning is Wilsonís lack of involvement as a runner, something that seems to be a continuing trend from last season. Without the upside of his legs, and playing against a stout 49er defense thatís sure to also bleed the clock by running the ball, I donít see a big point total in this one.

Trevor Lawrence @ LAC

T-Law has looked transformed under the tutelage of Doug Pederson as heís coming off a big win against the Colts that saw him complete over 83% of his passes. Of course, if heís in this spot, there are a few red flags. Heís not doing much on the ground, has been overly reliant on Christian Kirk, and the Chargers defense represents an extreme upgrade over Indy and Washington. Look for LA to get after Lawrence and force him to be uncomfortable.

Aaron Rodgers @ TB

Languishing below such luminaries as Baker Mayfield, Jameis Wintson, and Jacoby Brissett, Rodgers sits as fantasy’s No.24 scoring quarterback. The thumping of the Bears was more about Aaron Jones and the run game, as ARod still hasn’t found much chemistry with his receivers. It doesn’t get much easier on the road against a dominant Tampa defense. Between the young pass catchers and a shuffling offensive line, avoid Rodgers if you have better options.
