Kirk Cousins

1) Kirk Cousins @ Detroit

Cousins ranks 19th in fantasy production among quarterbacks at just 19.7 FPts/G, but faces a Lionsí pass defense which allows the most fantasy points in the league (27 FPts/G). Heís got an elite receiver among a solid wideout group and a very good tight end who will have the added incentive of playing against his old team. He was OK in their Week 3 matchup (20.9 points), but in his last two trips to Ford Field heís combined for 720 passing yards, five touchdown passes and zero interceptions worth an average 33.5 FPts/G.

2) Trevor Lawrence @ Tennessee

Assuming his foot doesnít blow up on him (hurt on the last play of the first half in Week 13, but continued to play), Trevor Lawrence has a very good matchup against the 31st-ranked QB defense. Of course, he played the 32nd-ranked team in Week 13 and was disappointing, but all will be forgiven if heís great this weekend. The Titans allowed Jalen Hurts 380 passing yards and two receivers cracked the 100-yard mark and most teams canít run on Tennessee so they pass all day (a league-high 480 passing attempts).

3) Jared Goff vs. Minnesota

In what bookmakers expect to be the highest-scoring game of the weekend (O/U 53.5), it makes sense that both Cousins and Jared Goff should be started. The last time Goff facing the Vikings at home he produced 26.9 fantasy points in a 29-27 victory. The additional receiving help of the explosive rookie Jameson Williams (12th overall pick out of Alabama) is an added bonus.

1) Dak Prescott vs Houston

Itís not that Dak Prescott will have a bad day, itís just that Houston is the worst in the league against the run and both Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard should run wild. Also, the game situation figures to be a Cowboys blowout (-17), meaning 40 passing attempts wonít be necessary.

2) Daniel Jones vs. Philadelphia

Jones has done much of his damage with his legs this season (91-522-4). Most of that has been by necessity because the Giantsí receiving corps has been decimated by injuries and poor play. Unfortunately, the Eagles have yet to allow a QB rushing touchdown. If it comes to throwing, Jones will be facing the league leaders in interceptions (15).

3) Deshaun Watson @ Cincinnati

Watson’s second game of the season against a very tough Cincinnati defense will be as difficult as his first. The Bengals rank No. 4 in QB fantasy points allowed (17.3) which includes just 11 passing touchdowns in 12 games. They are slightly better at home, allowing just 16.2 FPts/G in the “Jungle,” with only Patrick Mahomes cracking the 20-point mark. The long wait for Watson will likely not pay off for fantasy owners this weekend.
