For my first attempt at Fantasy football weekly advice I decided to make a list of who I think will be the top 5 fantasy quarterbacks this week and why. In my next post I will compare my ranking to what really happened.
Feel free to look at my rankings:
1.Matt Ryan, Atlanta Falcons, playing Tampa Bay Buccaneers, After coming back from injury in week 10 Matt Ryan has been solid against two good defenses, Saints and Panthers. Now, Matt Ryan is fully healthy and is playing against the defense that has let up the most points in the NFL, Tampa bay Buccaneers.
2. Russell Wilson, Seattle Seahawks, playing Philadelphia Eagles, The Seattle Seahawks offense is a very high scoring offense and Russell Wilson averages 2.3 touchdown passes a game, which is the highest passing touchdown average in the NFL. Also he has a very good matchup facing the Eagles who arguably have the worst secondary in the NFL.
3. Lamar Jackson, Baltimore Ravens, playing Los Angeles Rams, Lamar Jackson, has the most fantasy points this year of any quarterback. Not the best matchup this week as the Rams have a good defense, but I don’t think they will be good enough to stop Lamar Jackson.
4 Drew Brees, New Orleans Saints, playing Carolina Panthers, Drew Brees is one of the greatest quarterbacks of all time, and after coming back from injury this year Brees has shown us why. He is playing indoors, which makes it easier to throw in, but playing the Panthers I expect Saints coach Sean Payton to come up with some trick plays for other players which may hurt Brees’s performance.
5. Deshaun Watson, Houston Texans, playing Indianapolis Colts, Deshaun Watson had a good chance to be MVP up until last week when he got destroyed by the Lamar Jakson and the Ravens. However, I have a feeling he is going to bounce back against the Colts, who have recently gave up 16+ points to the Dolphins and the Jaguars ,two offenses that are way worse than the Texans.
These are the top 5 quarterbacks that FanDuel Predicts:
1. Lamar Jackson
2. Russell Wilson
3. Deshaun Watson
4. Matt Ryan
5. Drew Brees
