The Shot Caller's Report - Wk 17 Quarterbacks

Brock  Purdy

Brock Purdy @ WAS

Purdy had a miserable Monday night, turning the ball over four times and leaving the game late with an injury, but the healing salve of the Commander defense should be all you need to trust Purdy this week. With a chance to clinch home field, the Niners offense should roll against one of the worst defenses in the NFL.

Patrick Mahomes vs CIN

Despite having one of the worst statistical seasons since he became a starter in 2018, Mahomes has remained a top-10 fantasy quarterback, and faces a fading Cinci defense that has allowed the 8th most fantasy points to quarterbacks this season. The Chiefs are a wounded animal right now, and I trust Mahomes in a pivotal Week 17 game at home.

Dak Prescott vs DET (SAT)

Prescott and the Cowboy offense has cooled the last few weeks after a torrid mid-season run. Losers of two straight, Dallas can and should rebound against a Detroit defense thatís vulnerable in the secondary, giving up 5th most yards-per-attempt in the league. Throw in fact the Lions also have a weak pass rush (8th fewest sacks in the league with 34) and Prescott should have an opportunity for a big afternoon.

Joe Flacco vs NYJ (THU)

Flacco has come off the couch to have a renaissance month for the Browns. Heís thrown for the most yards in the NFL over the last four weeks, and has 10 touchdowns. While known to have a big arm, itís not a total shock Cleveland has taken advantage of a string of struggling defenses to win three in a row. The Jets pose a significantly bigger challenge for the statuesque Flacco. His big statistical games have not come without plenty of blemishes (7 interceptions) and Iím not sure the game plan will call for the 43 average pass attempts heís had either.

Jake Browning @ KC

Browning has more than held his own since coming in for the injured Joe Burrow. With at least 227 yards (including three 300-yard games) in each of his five starts, Browning has found a place in the history books. Unfortunately, he struggled mightily against the Steelers last week, and on the road against KC, likely without JaíMarr Chase, is just not a place I need my starter to be.

Tua Tagovailoa @ BAL

It’s hard to be down on a quarterback on such an explosive offense, but that’s just how highly I think of the Baltimore defense. While San Fran was able to attack the middle of the field with George Kittle, Miami doesn’t have someone to do that with the injury to Jalen Waddle. With only Tyreek Hill to neutralize, Miami just doesn’t have another respectable threat in the passing game.
