Player Pos Team Opp Start / Sit Comment
Kyler Murray QB ARI LAR START Murray did leave last week's game with a hamstring injury, but it's thought to be minor and the Rams are thinking of benching their star players which could line things up pretty nicely for Murray
Matt Ryan QB ATL TB START Tampa's defense is much improved, but its strength is against the run that should give Ryan a healthy volume to work with.
Mitch Trubisky QB CHI MIN START This one's from the gut. Chicago has played Minnesota well the last two years and Chicago will be looking to bring some positivity to the year end. Minnesota has locked up the wild card and, therefore, more in a preserve the stars mode. This could give Mith a "good Mitch" ending to the season as the Bears contemplate what they do with his 5th year option and if they bring in competition next year.
Tarik Cohen RB CHI MIN START Tarik seems to have regained RB1 snap count and more importantly, targets in this offense his floor is relatively safe and I expect a startable week.
Drew Lock QB DEN OAK Sit Lock gets a plus matchup, but OAK is fired up right now with their chance for the playoffs still alive. They'll be reved up to get this win as one of a number of things that must happen for them to get into the playoffs.
AJ Brown WR TEN HOU START I think you have to continue to ride AJ Brown in a matchup that matters.
Marshawn Lynch RB SEA SF SIT I just can't image Lynch coming off the street and be able to get enough volume to put in startable numbers aginst a strong defense.
