Jalen HurtsQBPHIARISTARTHurts has demonstrated that he has a solid floor given his rushing ability. He looks like a poor man's Kyler Murray with fresh legs. Perhaps Arizona can better prepare for his style knowing Murray's proclivity to run with the ball (not as much the last few weeks).
Tom BradyQBTBATLSTARTThis is a division game and with the playoffs coming down to the last few weeks, Tampa needs to be able to handle Atlanta (they play them weeks 15 and 17) to ensure they stay in the mix. The passing game is their most effective form of attack and Brady is likely to have a solid floor.
Ben RoethlisbergerQBPITCINSTARTBen's has been fairly reliable, but without a high ceiling this year. He's failed to put in 20 points twice, including last week. But, this should be a decent spot for him vs CIN defense. His receivers have had a severe case of the drops; but, they are deep at WR and Tomlin has emphasized he's playing the receivers who catch the ball.
Jared GoffQBLARNYJSTARTGoff should have an easier time with the Jets than many matchups in this home game vs an East coast team. Look for Goff to clear 20 points.
Todd GurleyRBATLTBSITBetween the chronic knee issue and Tampa's tough rush defense, Gurley is not a prime choice to be in line-ups these days.
J.K. DobbinsRBBALJACSTARTA plus matchup for Dobbins. He hasn't been as dominant with touches in the backfield as many would like to see and Gus Edwards did get 2 TDs last week. But, Mark Ingram was mostly on the sideline. That has raised Dobbins weekly floor.
Cam AkersRBLARNYJSTARTAkers is taking over this backfield and I don't expect the Jets to put up too much of a fight here. The running game should be relied on in the fourth quarter.
Brandon AiyukWRSFDALSTARTA plus matchup for Aiyuk without Deebo available to take away looks. Kittle is perhaps a week away. Expect 10 targets for Aiyuk this week.
