Trevor Lawrence

Trevor Lawrence
vs LV

The 2nd year pro continues to experience growing pains on a young Jags team that’s moved to 0-6 in one score games. Lawrence struggled across the pond against a dastardly Bronco defense, but plays host to a fading Vegas unit giving up the 2nd most fantasy points to quarterbacks. They’ve been a secondary to attack all year, and I think this offense busts through for a needed win.

Justin Herbert @ ATL

I know it doesn’t look good for Herbert with Mike Williams out, and Keenan Allen unable to get healthy, but the bye week came for a good time for the young gunslinger. A lingering rib injury has gotten a chance to heal, and the offense had a chance to adjust. The Falcon secondary has given up a league worst 306 yards–per-game through the air and I believe Herbert’s talent can overcome the receiver injuries.

Kirk Cousins @ WAS

#Revenge game? Cousins marches his 6-1 Vikings back into the nation’s capital to battle his former franchise. While he hasn’t put up the gaudy numbers that might have been expected, Cousins has been efficient as the leader of a balanced offense. While newly acquired T.J. Hockenson gets acclimated to the offense, Cousins should hit a few big plays against a suspect Commander secondary.

Ryan Tannehill / Malik Willis @ KC

Given a choice between a gimpy vet, or raw rookie making his 2nd NFL start, I’ll choose the 3rd option…neither. The Titans are well coached, and have won four-straight, but they’ve barely squeaked by some bad teams, and don’t have the horses to get into a track meet with the Chiefs. They are either going to try and ride Henry into the ground again, or spend half the game getting run over.

Sam Ehlinger @ NE

Ehlinger didn’t embarrass himself in his first NFL start, completing more than 70% of his passes and throwing for 201 yards, but this team, and offense is in freefall. They canned their offensive coordinator, can’t seem to get Jonathan Taylor on track, and just sent their best receiving back to the Bills via trade. Ehlinger wouldn’t be the first young quarterback to see ghosts against Coach Bill.

Jared Goff vs GB

Four of the six Lion losses have been by 4 points or less and in all of them they had a chance to take a lead late. Yes, the defense has been exhaustingly bad, but Goff simply hasn’t been able to snatch a victory from the jaws of defeat like a franchise quarterback needs to. The Packers are a wounded animal and have allowed the 2nd fewest fantasy points to quarterbacks. None of these things inspire much confidence.
