Bye Weeks: Green Bay, Pittsburgh
QBs | RBs | WRs

Grab a Helmet

1) Gardner Minshew @ Jacksonville

After spending two weeks in London, the Jaguars return home to face Indianapolis and new starting quarterback Gardner Minshew. Minshew is in there because rookie Anthony Richardson injured his shoulder in the last game. As a starter in Week 3, he threw for 227 yards and a score against a highly-ranked Ravens defense. In Week 6 he faces a Jacksonville pass defense ranked 27th. Minshew, as a starter over his career, averages 248.6 yards and 1.72 touchdowns. Those are solid fill-in numbers.

2) Kirk Cousins @ Chicago Bears

Donít be scared by Justin Jeffersonís absence. The Vikings still have three quality pass-catchers in rookie first-round draft choice Jordan Addison, K.J. Osborn and tight end T.J. Hockenson. The group will want to prove they can overcome the loss of their star. Meanwhile, the Bears rank next-to-last in QB fantasy points allowed (26.1 FPts/G).

Dak Prescott

3) Dak Prescott @ LA Chargers

The Cowboys offense is a mess. They just got dominated by the 49ers on both sides of the ball. There seems to be some dissension between the quarterback and his star receiver. But the Los Angeles Chargersí pass defense is just the elixir to get the Dallas pass offense healthy. They rank dead last in fantasy points allowed to opposing quarterbacks (27.2 FPts/G).

1) Brock Purdy @ Cleveland

Purdy has been pretty good this season and ranks 10th in FPts/G (22.8). But the Browns rank No.1 against opposing quarterbacks allowing just 14.1 FPts/G and 148.5 passing yards per game despite facing the likes of Lamar Jackson and Joe Burrow. Cleveland has had two weeks to prepare for this game after their Week 5 bye. They will be rested, hungry and they are healthy on the defensive side of the ball.

2) C.J. Stroud vs. New Orleans

Stroud has been a really nice story through the early part of the season, but now is not the time to go against the numbers. The Saints allow less than 200 yards passing to opposing quarterbacks and 17.3 FPts/G. One of Stroudís favorite targets, Tank Dell (19-324-2) is in concussion protocol. If Dell doesnít play, the Saints will put CB Marshon Lattimore on Nico Collins (25-467-3) and life will be tough for the rookie quarterback. Watch the Texansí injury report this week before making your decision.

3) Jared Goff @ Tampa Bay

Goff continues to play Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Hyde. At home he’s very, very good, but on the road he’s below average. In two road games he’s averaging 16.1 FPts/G and in three home games he produces 26.8 FPts/G. This isn’t new. His career home QB Rating is 98.0 and it’s 88.4 on the road. This game is in Tampa.
