Player Pos Team Opp Start / Sit Comment
Trevor Lawrence QB JAC BUF SIT Lawrence has been hit and miss on playable weeks, this is not the week to take a chanceon Lawrence
Sam Darnold QB CAR ATL START Wow. Darnold has been a disaster these last few weeks and rumors are the Panthers have entered the DeShaun Watson sweep stakes. Atlanta has been a cure for QB woes, however. They haven't held a QB under 27 points since week 1. Their last four opponents have been: Miami, NY Jets, Washington and NY Giants. I think Darnold has a chance if you're desperate.
Teddy Bridgewater QB DEN WAS START Bridgewater has delivered four startable weeks in the seven he's played. He gets a good matchup vs WAS this week. WAS hasn't held any QB under 28 points since week 1. Fire Teddy up.
Kenneth Gainwell RB PHI DET START Sanders is likely out for 3 weeks and this is a plus matchup for running backs. Gainwell will likely lead the backfield in opportunities. Roll him out.
Tyler Higbee TE LAR HOU START Higbee gets a plus matchup this week. He's been streamable .. Use him this week.
Marvin Jones WR JAC BUF SIT Before the BYE, Marvin Jones turned in a 7 rec 100 yds and a TD stat line for his 4th playable week on the year. But, Jacksonville will likely limit his ability to produce for your team despite a likely negative game script.
