Dak Prescott

Grab a Helmet

1) Dak Prescott vs. Washington

Prescott hasnít cracked 17 fantasy points in his last three games (all on the road) ranking him 27th among QBs over that span, but after watching the Eaglesí Jalen Hurts carve up the WFT secondary, I see a big day for the Dallas offense. The Dallas signal caller has some extreme home/road splits in 2021 and this one will be played in Texas. He owns a 115.3 QB rating in Dallas (16 TDs - 2 INTs) and an 86.6 rating on the road (9 TDs Ė 8 INTs). Washington ranks last in QB fantasy points allowed (26.3 FPts/G).

2) Baker Mayfield @ Green Bay

Mayfield should clear Covid-19 protocol this week as the team heads to Wisconsin for a must-win game against the tough Packers. The Packers offense is dynamic behind Aaron Rodgers, but their defense, particularly against the pass, has been in a big slump. Since Week 11 they have allowed a league-worst 30.1 FPts/G facing the likes of Tyler Huntley, Justin Fields, Matthew Stafford and Kirk Cousins. Jarvis Landry and Austin Hooper should also return from the virus list to bolster the offense which will need to score 30 points to stay with Rodgers & Co.

3) Zach Wilson vs Jacksonville

This is a game that only friends, family and fantasy owners will watch. But itís a chance for Zach Wilson to show some growth. Since returning from injury in Week 12 he has accounted for five touchdowns and thrown just two interceptions. With Tampa Bay and Buffalo next up this will be the best chance left for Wilson to show Jets fans, future free agents and fantasy owners whether heís a real franchise quarterback. Fortunately the Jags pass defense doesnít intercept the ball very often (second-worst six INTs) and ranks 19th in fantasy points allowed over the past three games.

1) Josh Allen @ New England

OK, you arenít going to sit Allen, but be prepared for disappointment. The Patriots rank No. 2 against opposing fantasy quarterbacks yielding 16.7 for the season, but since Week 11 they have been extraordinary allowing just 10.7 FPts/G. The teams just played two weeks ago and Allen produced just 15.2 points going 15-of-30 for 145 yards and one score.

2) Taysom Hill vs. Miami

Hill had been very good in two starts until an ugly performance against the Bucs (13-of-27 for 154 yards and 11 fantasy points. In Week 16 heíll face an improving Dolphins defense which ranks third-best since Week 11 allowing just 15.8 FPts/G. In their last four games, the Miami defense has allowed just 20 rushing yards to opposing QBs which included a game against Cam Newton.

3) Mac Jones vs. Buffalo

It’s going to be a low-scoring defensive battle in the cold and rain of Foxborough, MA. It certainly won’t be as bad as the weather two weeks ago in Buffalo when Jones attempted just three passes, but 40-degrees and rain isn’t ideal passing weather. And neither is throwing against the No. 1 defense in QB fantasy points allowed this season (16.3 FPts/G).
