Daniel Jones is rarely anyoneís choice to start, but given
byes and injuries some guys may be looking here. Jones has a few
things working in his favor. His legs - heís produced 22.5
fantasy points over the last two games. He discovered Darius Slayton
last week. Slayton finally showed up after missing the first three
games and catching just one ball in his Week 4. Finally, the Ravensí
pass defense has been quite generous, allowing a league-worst
Cousins sits just outside the top-10, but the Dolphins defense
hasnít been as good as expected. They have yielded 1,428 yards
(fifth-worst) and eight touchdowns while picking off just one
ball. Along with superstar Justin Jefferson, Cousins has Adam
Thielen and an improving K.J. Osborn to target. He could explode
The 49ers offense looked pretty good last weekend and Jimmy G
was a big part of it, throwing for 253 yards and two scores without
an interception. He finally has his three top receivers in Deebo
Samuel, Brandon Aiyuk and George Kittle healthy as ready to roll.
The San Francisco running game behind Jeff Wilson is working.
The Falcons have yielded the fourth-most passing yards (1,451).
The 49ers defense is attacking offenses, not passively defending.
They have yielded a league-low two touchdown passes while picking
off four balls. Mariota hasnít cracked 200 passing yards
since Week 3 and weíre still waiting for Kyle Pitts to show
up this season.
I expect Cooper Rush to be the starter and heís been more
game manager than fantasy darling. Heís yet to post 20 fantasy
points and this Eagles team, in Philadelphia, on national television
isnít the place to start. The Eagles have as many interceptions
as touchdowns allowed.
I’m not telling redraft league owners to sit Herbert here
(I have him in multiple leagues), just daily players. Herbert
has three things working against having a big day. Likely no Keenan
Allen. Austin Ekeler finally running well, so he should get plenty
of work and Herbert is still dealing with rib cartilage issues
so the team will protect him if they can. Additionally, the Broncos
have a stout pass defense (13.9 FPts/G).
