Derek Carr

Derek Carr vs CHI

Let’s be real, Carr is a mediocre quarterback who hasn’t been able to elevate this Saints offense, but he’s gone over 300 yards in three-straight, and gets an overmatched Bears defense that bleeds fantasy points to the position. Carr and the Saints offense is slinging it the 6th most in the NFL, and with just a little improvement in the red zone Carr is a viable starter in weaker matchups. Along with byes and injuries, Carr qualifies this week.

Dak Prescott @ PHI

The bitter division rivals face off for the first time in 2023, with Prescott coming off his best game of the season in a thrashing of the Rams. He’s also had tremendous recent success against the Eagles with 11 passing touchdowns in his last three games against them. The Philly defense has given up some volcanic games to quarterbacks this season, as their secondary has given up the 3rd most touchdown passes in the NFL, and have picked off an NFL low four passes.

Joe Burrow vs BUF

Fresh off their Week 7 bye, Burrow and the Bengal offense was back in full force in their destruction of San Fran last week. Burrow looked as fresh and spry as ever, rushing for the 2nd most yards (43) in his career. Throw in a crisp 87.5 completion percentage and an 8-2 touchdown to interception ratio over the last three games, and the arrow is pointing up for Joe Cool. Next up is a Buffalo defense that is beat up, and has had their stats padded by a litany of poor quarterbacks.

Will Levis @ PIT (THU)

Watching Levis’s highlights in his dynamic debut last week against the Falcons reminded me of the workout videos that were splashed all over social media prior to the draft. Bomb after bomb falling into the hands of his receivers, his ability to throw the deep ball helped Hopkins to just his 2nd 100-yard game this season. Let’s pause the coronation though. Primetime in the Steel City is a rough place for a repeat, don’t risk it.

Geno Smith @ BAL

Despite a 9-6 touchdown-to-interception ratio (4-5 in the last three games) the Seahawks have started 5-2 and lead the NFC West. The Ravens are playing suffocating pass defense, as they have yet to allow a 300-yard passer, and have yielded the fewest fantasy points to the position. Trusting Smith on the road against this defense is a tough ask.

Justin Herbert @ NYJ

Flawed as this offense and team might be, Herbert remains a weekly top-10 option, but a road game on Monday night in Jersey should temper any expectations. Bye weeks and misery plague the position this week, so sitting Herbert is not an option, but look for yet another ugly game in the Meadowlands.
