Joe Burrow

Joe Burrow

A tsunami of injuries made the Ravens a secondary to target last season, and they havenít been much better in 2022. Flacco, Tua, and Mac Jones have torched this defense, and the weather was a big factor in slowing Josh Allen. Burrow also dog walked this defense last season to the tune of over 900 yards in the air and seven touchdowns. The Bengals have regrouped to get to .500 and this is an important game in the fight for the AFC North. These teams easily topped 60 total points in both meetings last season, so expect the same on Sunday.

Aaron Rodgers vs NYG (London):

Itís been a slow process for Rodgers and his young receivers, but we finally see the trust heís beginning to develop, especially in Romeo Doubs. He and Christian Watson will be trouble for defenses down the stretch, but the old man should have enough juice to fire up the British crowd in London. The Giant defense has been scrappy, but are banged up, and will likely face bad field position all day due to their terrible offense.

Tom Brady vs ATL

A little dinged up, but coming off by far his best game in 2022, Brady should feast at home against a determined, but undermanned Falcon defense. Brady had nine touchdowns and over 600 yards passing last season against this team, and with Evans looking better than ever, and Goodwin getting healthier, Tampa should move the ball easily in this one.

Matthew Stafford vs DAL

The offensive line is in shambles, the passing game isnít balanced and Stafford looks off mentally and physically. He seems to be pressing, and owns a terrible 4-6 touchdown-to-interception ratio. Screens and a healthy dose of the running game is going to be the plan against an aggressive Dallas defense. The closer to 30 pass attempts the better this offense seems to produce, so look for higher upside options at the position.

Kyler Murray vs PHI

Goff, Cousins, Wentz, and Lawrence arenít exactly a murderer's row, but this flashy Eagles defense has put the clamps on opposing quarterbacks. Itís clear after the first few weeks that Murray is unlikely to return the draft day investment you paid. Every play seems to take a herculean effort from Murray and the offense seems to languish during the first half of games. The floor is there because of his scrambling ability, but Murray isnít the plug and forget fantasy player heís been in previous seasons.

Derek Carr @ KC

With a fresh offense, and the addition of Davante Adams, there was some chatter about Carr taking a fantasy leap in 2022. Thus far, it just hasn’t happened. Darren Waller isn’t a big part of the offense, as journeyman Mack Hollins has just as many targets (24). It feels like Carr is forcing the ball to Adams, and struggles when he’s not open. Carr hasn’t had a three-touchdown game since Week 5 of the 2020 season, and I can’t see a breakout coming on the road against the Chiefs.
