The Shot Caller's Report - Wk 10 Quarterbacks

By Steve Schwarz | 11/10/22
Bye Weeks: BAL, CIN, NE, NY Jets
QBs | RBs | WRs

Grab a Helmet

1) Justin Fields vs. Detroit

All signs are pointing upward for the Bearsí young quarterback. For the season he ranks 11th, but over the last five weeks he ranks fourth, producing 27.6 FPts/G (19.1, 22.3, 27.2, 27.6 and 42 points last weekend). Heíll face the Lionsí 29th-ranked defense in QB fantasy points allowed, even after their excellent performance against Green Bay. Play the hot hand.

Russell Wilson

2) Russell Wilson @ Tennessee

Wilson and the Broncos are coming off a bye after winning in London and face a Titansí pass defense which is allowing opposing QBs 24.8 FPts/G. Jerry Jeudy is still a Bronco despite trade rumors, Courtland Sutton is healthy and the team found a solid tight end in Greg Dulcich. So Wilson should be throwing the ball more often to make up for a weaker running game without Javonte Williams (ACL, out for the season).

3) Andy Dalton/Jameis Winston @ Pittsburgh

This is not one of those great Steelers defenses of the past. In fact, they rank 26th in QB fantasy points allowed. They have yielded 16 touchdown passes in eight games. If itís Dalton under center, heís passed for 800 yards and seven touchdowns over the past three games, though he wasnít particularly good against the Ravens Monday night. If head Coach Dennis Allen decides to go back to Winston, heís finally healthy, and averaged 286 passing yards in Week 1-3.

1) Ryan Tannehill vs. Denver

Malik Willis has shown us that he isnít ready to start in the NFL, so I expect a return to Tannehill (ankle), but facing a Denver pass defense ranked No. 1, allowing just 12.9 FPts/G is a mean trick to pull on the veteran signal caller. His favorite receiver, Robert Woods, went scoreless last weekend on two targets and rookie Treylon Burks (turf toe) could be activated, but hasnít lived up to expectations of replacing A.J. Brown. Stay away no matter who is under center.

2) Dak Prescott @ Green Bay

Iím sure Cowboys fans are yelling as they read this, thinking Iím just another Eagles fan who hates them, but this isnít a good matchup for Prescott and the passing game. The team has found success being a run-first offense behind Ezekiel Elliott (when healthy) and explosive Tony Pollard, so Prescott has only averaged 26 passing attempts per game since his return from a hand injury. The Packers are ranked No. 2 against opposing quarterbacks allowing just 15.4 FPts/G. Head Coach Mike McCarthy will continue his winning formula of running the ball and relying on his great defense.

3) Taylor Heinicke @ Philadelphia

While Heinicke is an improvement over Carson Wentz, he’s still prone to errors (one INT in each of his starts) and is averaging just 210 passing yards per game. Meanwhile, the Eagles defense ranks third in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks (16.4). They have picked off a league-leading 12 passes this season, (allowing just nine touchdown passes) and are sixth in sacks (26). In 2021, Heinicke produced just 13.8 points against the Eagles in a Week 17 loss. This is not the game for Heinicke to turn things around.
