C.J. Stroud

C.J. Stroud @ JAX

Negative game scripts have largely led to Stroudís 91 attempts (3rd in the NFL) but itís the lack of turnovers thatís surprised me the most. His 626 yards (5th in the NFL) also mean that heís not simply checking it down. Iím never thrilled to start a rookie on the road, but thereís sure to be another negative script to power some garbage time fantasy points. Give the rook a look as a weekly QB stream.

Justin Herbert @ MIN

Both 0-2 this is a must win for two teams that are trying to return to the playoffs. The Viking defense has been a sieve (The Chargers have been just as bad), Austin Ekeler is likely out again, and Vegas fully believes this will be a track meet, as the game has a Week 3 high over/under of 51.5. Herbert looks comfortable in the new offense and has been solid if unspectacular so far.

Jared Goff vs ATL

Goff continues to be more than a simple caretaker for the Detroit offense, as he nearly set the record for most consecutive passes without an interception. The pick-six was the only blemish against Seattle last week, and with 35 attempts in each of the first two weeks, the volume continues to be there. Look for the Lions to throw even more this week with David Montgomery, their workhorse back, likely out.

Sam Howell vs BUF

Howell has been a dynamic surprise for the 2-0 Commanders as his athleticism and arm talent has shined in a new offensive system. He was great on the road against Denver last week, but Buffalo is a different beast. They throttled the Raiders last week, and should make things tough for Howell and the Washington offense.

Justin Fields @ KC

Being shoehorned into being a pocket passer, the called run plays have nearly dried up. With most of his fantasy value tied up in his running ability, Fields hasnít been able to compensate as a passer. He still takes far too many sacks, and struggles to complete more than half of his passes. Iím sure they will start dialing them up the runs again, but the pressure to keep up with KCís offense and the injuries along the offensive line could spell disaster.

Jordan Love vs NO

Love has been quite the conundrum this year. While his six touchdowns are tied for most in the NFL, his 396 passing yards are good for 26th. He’s had to make do without Christian Watson and Aaron Jones for a good chunk of the first two games, but this offense is still feeling growing pains. They looked listless in Atlanta as they watched the Falcons mount a comeback win. The Saints-D hasn’t given up more than 20 points in a near lifetime (10 games) and they have made life miserable for fantasy quarterbacks, giving up the 4th fewest points.
