Tyrod Taylor, NY Giants (vs Philadelphia)
Taylor has been productive in his recent starts, and the Giants showed last week that they are still fighting despite being out of the playoff hunt. Taylor is riffing in the deep passing game with Darius Slayton, who has caught a long score in each of the last two weeks, and the Eagles defense has been suspect in the second half of the season.
Nick Mullens, Minnesota (at Detroit)
Mullens is as likely to get benched (again) as he is to have a big game. But he just had a 411-yard game against these same Lions two weeks ago, and the Lions had a lot more to play for then than they do this week.
Tyler Huntley, Baltimore (vs Pittsburgh)
Huntley came back to earth last year when Lamar Jackson got hurt, but he does add a lot of value as a runner, and he should get to play as loose as he wants with nothing on the line for the Ravens this week.
Mason Rudolph, Pittsburgh (at Baltimore)
Rudolph doesn't have a high ceiling, but he has been getting George Pickens involved in the downfield passing game with great results, and the offense has been more productive with Rudolph than it was at any point earlier this season.
