Up to 5th in the NFL in passing yardage and cruising with a career
best 68.4% completion percentage, Goff is playing some of the
cleanest, most efficient football of his career. A true facilitator,
Goff and the Lions should have little trouble moving the ball
against a middling Chicago defense. With multiple red zone opportunities,
250 yards and 2+ touchdowns should be the floor in Week 11.
While Murray was a little rusty throwing the ball in his first
game back post-ACL, he jitterbugged his way to 33 yards rushing,
and kept several more plays alive with his elite scrambling ability.
The passing numbers are sure to improve as he shakes off the rust,
and this Houston defense is nothing to shy away from. Murray is
back to weekly QB1 status.
With a week to retool, and get some skill position players healthy,
Miami has a chance to explode this week against a Vegas team that
has fed off the emotion of a coaching change, and the drain-circling
New York teams in back-to-back weeks. Tua has four 3+ touchdown
days, and is a decent bet to add to that total this week.
I know there aren't many teams out there reaching for OíConnell
for help, but with injuries and bye weeks, he might be an option
for some. Iím here to ask you to look elsewhere. While the
rookie hasnít done anything too damaging in his last two
starts, he also hasnít contributed much to their two straight
wins. If OíConnell is forced to keep pace with this explosive
Miami offense, things could get ugly.
Despite being outgained in yardage in nine straight games, the Steelers
sit at 6-3, just a hair out of first place in the AFC North. The
wins have masked the stink that permeates this inconsistent offense.
Pickett has utterly failed to take the next step, and has yet to
surpass 235 yards in any game this season despite explosive pieces
around him. This Cleveland defense continues to chew up quarterbacks
and spit them out.
Oh, how the mighty have fallen. Looking dazed and confused by
their latest loss, Allen and this Bills team sit at a crossroads.
Will the offense benefit from a new voice, or will the Jets defense
suffocate them like did in Week 1? His floor makes him unbenchable,
but I’m going to need the rest of my fantasy roster to pick
up the slack. The reckless turnovers continue to damage his fantasy
numbers both directly, and indirectly.
