Daniel Jones (NYG) @ Seattle Seahawks
Available in 71% of ESPN Leagues
The 2022 rise of Daniel Jones has been a slow-burn to say the least, but in Week 7 we saw him go off for 28.8 fantasy points against a solid Jacksonville defense. Currently Daniel Jones is sitting as the QB9 overall and is averaging 17.32-FPPG. If Jones is willing to rush the football like he did in Jacksonville, this could become a buy-and-hold player.
Facing off against Seattle is a plus matchup as well. This season Seattle has allowed top-12 performances to opposing quarterbacks on four separate occasions. On average they allow opposing quarterbacks to score 19-FPPG and also give up 2.4 fantasy points above expectation. The Seahawks have also allowed two rushing touchdowns from quarterbacks, tied for the second worst in the NFL.
Jared Goff (DET) vs Miami Dolphins
Available in 53% of ESPN Leagues
Jared Goff after two single-digit fantasy outputs in a row? Well yes, of course! But I would get off of Goff in the event that Amon-Ra St. Brown and D’Andre Swift both miss.
Goff has faced two tough defenses, on the road, on back-to-back occasions: New England and Dallas. Taking on Miami is far from facing off against these aforementioned elite defenses. Miami allows for 20.5-FPPG to opposing quarterbacks. The Dolphins also rank as one of the bottom-eight teams in the takeaway column.
Goff starting in your lineup is never easy but he provides the most realistic upside out of this group. He has scored 26-or-more fantasy points on two occasions this year. The fantasy performance of Goff seems to shift when he plays at home vs away. In such games he is scoring 25-FPPG at home while scoring 8.43-FPPG on the road.
This is a game with potential to be high scoring as well since oddsmakers have assigned an over/under of 51.5. We have seen high scoring affairs from both teams when prompted to keep up. Additionally, the skill players on both team’s offenses are elite.
The former first overall draft pick is an easy start in 2QB leagues and a formidable spot-start option for single-QB leagues.
Jameis Winston or Andy Dalton (NO) vs Las Vegas Raiders
In ESPN Leagues, Winston is Available in 87%, Dalton is Available in 98%
It is hard to say who will start this game so I won’t dive too deep into this play. Either way, you can play the announced starting quarterback for the Saints.
The Saints will be hosting the Raiders, the worst team against opposing quarterbacks. They currently allow 24.4-FPPG to quarterbacks and on average, they allow 7.5 fantasy points above expectation. Simply put, the Raiders’ defense allows offenses to put up fantasy points all over the place.
Whether it is Winston or Dalton under center, there should be success found. Winston provides a much more realistic ceiling potential than Dalton, but Dalton can make things happen when needed. Just last week Dalton was pushed to score 29.5 fantasy points against the Cardinals after an early deficit.
Be mindful of Dalton in single-QB leagues, there are likely safer alternatives available that will not face a potential mid-game benching. If Winston suits up as the starter, be confident to start him in single-QB leagues. Both of these guys are easy plays in two-QB leagues, but Dalton does scare me a little if you have better options.
