Tua Tagovailoa (vs Atlanta)
Tagovailoa had a fine game against the Jaguars last week even though the coaches didn’t trust him to win the game in the fourth quarter. He’ll face an equally easy to solve pass defense this week and might even get back DeVante Parker. The Dolphins also have no running game to speak of, so they will rely on Tagovailoa, at least until the game is on the line. Taylor Heinicke and Jalen Hurts have both thrown three scores against the Falcons this season and it’s only Week 7.
Jameis Winston (at Seattle)
The Saints had the bye week to get the passing game in order, and they could also get Tre’Quan Smith back this week. Taysom Hill isn’t practicing yet, so Winston may not cede any snaps or scoring opportunities to him against a weary Seahawks defense that has given up over 300 passing yards in four of six games and multiple passing touchdowns in three of six games.
Justin Fields (at Tampa Bay)
Every other team abandons the run and tries to beat the Bucs through the air, so Matt Nagy may have no choice this week but to let Justin Fields play. Even if Fields is a mess and gives up multiple turnovers, he should make hay for fantasy as a scrambler and could complete some big plays against a depleted Bucs secondary that will likely be playing with a lead. Fields has a high ceiling in this one unless Nagy proves to be more stubborn than Adam Gase.
Mac Jones (vs New York Jets)
Jones criticized himself for not being aggressive enough in the first matchup with the Jets, so he could be ready to take more shots downfield after hitting a 75-yard go-ahead score on Trevon Diggs the play after Diggs scored a go-ahead pick six on him. The Jets secondary and pass rush is ill-equipped to slow down an NFL offense, so Jones and company shouldn’t have too much resistance, it just comes down to not settling for field goals and scoring through the air instead of the ground.
