The Shot Caller's Report - Wk 7 Quarterbacks

QBs | RBs | WRs

Tua Tagovailoa

Tua Tagovailoa vs ATL

Tua showed no ill effects from his rib injury, putting together one of his best statistical games in the loss to the Jags. The Dolphins are decimated on defense, and with absolutely no running game to rely on, Tagovailoa should see another high volume game against a bad Atlanta defense. The best chance for this team to win is to throw it around the yard, making Tua worth a look as a bye week fill-in. And hey, he might be auditioning for a job elsewhere if Deshaun Watson comes to town!

Taylor Heinicke @ GB

After decent statistical outings during Week 2-4, Heinicke has really wet the bed in the last two, with three turnovers and only one touchdown. Washington canít seem to find a second receiving threat, and heís been off on deep throws to McLaurin. Despite the recent struggles, there are points to be had against a Green Bay defense that is mediocre, especially on the ground, where the Pack have yielded the 5th most rushing yards to quarterbacks. With Antonio Gibson banged up, look for the Football Team to try and move the ball through the air and with Heinickeís legs.

Jimmy Garoppolo vs IND

I know I have a bit of a motley crew here at quarterback, but bye weeks, and volatility outside the top 10 leaves Garoppolo a serious consideration against a Colts defense that looked dominant against Houston, but hapless in the weeks prior. With the rise of Trey Lance cut short before it started, Jimmy G. and the Niners are at home after a bye week, giving Kyle Shanahan a chance to scheme some ways to get this offense back on track.

Justin Fields @ TB

Ok, I was dead wrong on my evaluation of Fields, but I donít know if itís his apparent lack of readiness, the completely inept coaching, lack of surrounding talent, or a horrific combination of all that, but I really expected Fields to be a dynamic fantasy player when finally given the starting job. Instead we have a young player struggling to complete 50% of his passes, isnít a running threat, and simply canít seem to get pro bowl receiver Allen Robinson the ball. Tampa has been bad in the secondary, but their pass rush should make things a nightmare for the rookie.

Teddy Bridgewater @ CLE (THU)

Everything was smelling rosy while Denver got off to that 3-0 start. Since facing off against some real teams, this offense, and Bridgewater have turned sour. With stats propped up by garbage time rallies in the last two weeks, the offense lacks a clear direction. Cleveland is massively undermanned in this game, but thatís predominantly on the offensive side of the ball. The defense can and will get after the QB this week, and a trip in primetime to the Dawgpound will be too much to overcome.

Sam Darnold @ NYG

They’ve largely gushed about Darnold in the NY media here this season as the guy that finally is living up to his billing, but I’ve seen a quarterback who’s still turning the ball over too much for a veteran, and has his fantasy stats muddled by an unsustainable five rushing touchdowns. He’s been terrible in his last two games against the soft defenses of Philly and Minnesota, and has been called out by his coach for it. The former Jet returns to the stadium where his career nearly flamed out, facing a grumpy Giants team licking their wounds from another drubbing.
