Trevor Lawrence

Grab a Helmet

1) Trevor Lawrence @ Indianapolis

The Colts’ pass defense has yielded a league-high 23 touchdown passes this season and Lawrence should add to that total. Ignoring his ugly performance last week against the league’s best Bills’ pass defense, Lawrence has thrown at least one touchdown pass in six of seven games. The Jaguars as a double-digit dog will likely be behind and throwing which is frequently good for fantasy owners at garbage time. Jamal Agnew is coming on to give the Jaguars three decent receivers for Lawrence to target. I’m expecting 250 passing yards and a pair of scores.

2) Tua Tagovailoa vs. Baltimore

Assuming Tagovailoa is out there (game-time decision due to finger injury) the Ravens’ pass defense is not what it once was. They rank 22nd for the season and 28th over the past five weeks. They have injuries at every level. Meanwhile, you might be surprised to know Tagovailoa ranks sixth among fantasy QBs since Week 5 averaging 25.8 FPts/G. If it ends up being Jacoby Brissett under center, look elsewhere.

3) Mac Jones vs. Cleveland

The Browns defense has been surprisingly mediocre this season as we expected much more out of this squad. They rank just 18th for the season and are headed in the wrong direction. Since Week 5 they rank 27th yielding 11 touchdown passes and 1368 passing yards over five games. Jones hasn’t produced much the past two weeks, but that was expected facing two of the top-four defenses in QB fantasy points allowed (Carolina and Los Angeles Chargers). Previous to that he had thrown seven touchdowns in four games and averaged 260.5 passing yards.

Grab a Clipboard

1) Jalen Hurts @ Denver

The Eagles have shifted the emphasis of their offense from “pass-first” to “run-first.” Hurts has averaged just 15.5 passing attempts over the last two games compared to 34.6 attempts the first seven games. For the season the Broncos rank No. 3 against opposing QBs (18.7 FPts/G). They have allowed just four touchdown passes at Empower Field at Mile High. They have yielded just 109 rushing yards to opposing QBs in eight games, including just 28 yards and no touchdowns to Lamar Jackson in Week 4.

2) Colt McCoy vs. Carolina

I think the division-leading Cardinals give Kyler Murray another week to heal which means McCoy is under center against a tough Panthers’ defense that ranks fourth against opposing quarterbacks (19.3 FPts/G). McCoy was decent last week against the 49ers with 249 yards and a touchdown, but this is not a good matchup in what should be a low-scoring affair.

3) Baker Mayfield @ New England

No OBJ, no Nick Chubb, no Kareem Hunt and Jarvis Landry dealing with a knee issue though he’ll likely still play. Which means the offense will depend on D’Ernest Johnson, Mayfield and Donovan People-Jones. Mayfield has just eight touchdown passes in eight games and averages 239 passing yards. The Patriots rank sixth against opposing QBs yielding 20 FPts/G, including a league-leading 13 interceptions.
