Daniel Jones (vs Atlanta)
Kenny Golladay is a little banged up and first-round pick Kadarius Toney has been a non-factor, but otherwise everything is set up perfectly for Jones to have a huge game against the feeble Falcons defense. It appears Jason Garrett has woken up to Jones value as a runner. Jones is finding Darius Slayton open deep. Evan Engram might be ready to return to the lineup. Saquon Barkley should look better than he has so far this year. It’s hard to picture a way Jones and the Giants can mess this up.
Justin Fields (at Cleveland)
Fields will have the element of surprise in his favor against a Browns defense that had a lot of trouble with Tyrod Taylor last week. He’s obviously dangerous as a runner and both Taysom Hill and Jalen Hurts have shown us that a running quarterback doesn’t need to be a proficient passer to make a splash in fantasy leagues. It won’t be shocking if Fields is a top ten quarterback play this week.
Jacoby Brissett (at Las Vegas)
The Dolphins pass offense didn’t fall off much when Brissett came in, if at all. Miami will also get Will Fuller V back this week, and they will need the passing game to come alive to keep pace with the red hot Derek Carr. Brissett might be the first option at the goal line to raise his ceiling. He’s a fine QB2/Superflex if you’re in a pinch.
Jimmy Garoppolo (vs Green Bay)
Garoppolo will face a Packers defense that has always had trouble with Kyle Shanahan’s offense, and one that seemed to have trouble with Jared Goff and the declawed Lions passing game on Monday night for at least half of the game. The 49ers backfield is a cross between a MASH unit and an NFL tryout pool, so the gameplan might put more on Garoppolo’s shoulders than usual. If Aaron Rodgers forces this into a high scoring game script, Garoppolo could be one of the cheapest hits at quarterback this week.
