QBs | RBs | WRs

Grab a Helmet

1) Daniel Jones vs. Baltimore

Daniel Jones is rarely anyoneís choice to start, but given byes and injuries some guys may be looking here. Jones has a few things working in his favor. His legs - heís produced 22.5 fantasy points over the last two games. He discovered Darius Slayton last week. Slayton finally showed up after missing the first three games and catching just one ball in his Week 4. Finally, the Ravensí pass defense has been quite generous, allowing a league-worst 28.2 FPts/G.

2) Kirk Cousins @ Miami

Cousins sits just outside the top-10, but the Dolphins defense hasnít been as good as expected. They have yielded 1,428 yards (fifth-worst) and eight touchdowns while picking off just one ball. Along with superstar Justin Jefferson, Cousins has Adam Thielen and an improving K.J. Osborn to target. He could explode here.

Jimmy Garoppolo

3) Jimmy Garoppolo @ Atlanta

The 49ers offense looked pretty good last weekend and Jimmy G was a big part of it, throwing for 253 yards and two scores without an interception. He finally has his three top receivers in Deebo Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle healthy as ready to roll. The San Francisco running game behind Jeff Wilson is working. The Falcons have yielded the fourth-most passing yards (1,451).

1) Marcus Mariota vs. San Francisco

The 49ers defense is attacking offenses, not passively defending. They have yielded a league-low two touchdown passes while picking off four balls. Mariota hasnít cracked 200 passing yards since Week 3 and weíre still waiting for Kyle Pitts to show up this season.

2) Cooper Rush/Dak Prescott @ Philadelphia

I expect Cooper Rush to be the starter and heís been more game manager than fantasy darling. Heís yet to post 20 fantasy points and this Eagles team, in Philadelphia, on national television isnít the place to start. The Eagles have as many interceptions as touchdowns allowed.

3) Justin Herbert vs. Denver

I’m not telling redraft league owners to sit Herbert here (I have him in multiple leagues), just daily players. Herbert has three things working against having a big day. Likely no Keenan Allen. Austin Ekeler finally running well, so he should get plenty of work and Herbert is still dealing with rib cartilage issues so the team will protect him if they can. Additionally, the Broncos have a stout pass defense (13.9 FPts/G).
