Mac Jones, NE (vs TB)
Jones is likely going to have to throw a lot to keep up with Tom Brady, and against a depleted Bucs secondary. Not to mention that Josh McDaniels is smart enough to not waste too many plays running at a brick wall Bucs run defense. Tampa has already allowed nine passing touchdowns, and every quarterback to face them this year has thrown for at least 300 yards and two scores - including Matt Ryan.
Baker Mayfield, CLE (at MIN)
Mayfield is heading to Minnesota to face a red hot Kirk Cousins. The Vikings defense has been improving, but they are still allowing quarterbacks to complete over 75% of their passes and average over 13 yards per completion, while giving up six passing scores despite only seeing 95 pass attempts against them. Mayfield should also see things opened up by Odell Beckham Jr’s strong return to the lineup.
Taylor Heinicke, WAS (at ATL)
Heinicke was aided by garbage time stats against a breakout Buffalo Bills offense last week. This week, he’ll get the garbage Atlanta Falcons defense that has allowed eight passing scores even though Daniel Jones didn’t throw one last week because he didn’t have any healthy starting wide receivers. Heinicke probably won’t get Curtis Samuel back this week, but he still has Terry McLaurin and that should be enough to light up the Falcons secondary.
Jacoby Brissett, MIA (vs IND)
Brissett is facing his old team and coming off of a game where he twice led his team on game-tying do-or-die drives, which should boost his confidence. He is adding value as a runner, including a touchdown run to tie the game last week, and the Colts have already allowed nine passing scores despite facing only 80 passing attempts and 55 completions. That’s right - one of every 6.1 pass completions and one of every 8.9 pass attempts against the Colts this year have gone for touchdowns.
