Start Of The Week

Kyler Murray (ARI) @ DAL

Okay, I know it's hardly groundbreaking advice suggesting you start Kyler Murray this week, however I wanted to highlight it as I believe Murray has a real shot to finish the QB1 overall this week. Murray is currently the QB5, but it is more down to his rushing ability (296 yards & 5 TDs) rather than his passing. This week though he plays one of the worst pass defenses in the league in the Cowboys so I'm expecting a big game through the air as well as on the ground in Week 6.


Matt Ryan (ATL) @ MIN

After a hot start to the season, Matt Ryan has sizzled out over the last few weeks and currently sits as the QB19 for the year. However it isn't through a lack of trying, as he has the 3rd most passing attempts in the NFL, mainly due to the Falcons poor defense. Ryan plays the Vikings this week though, offering an ideal chance to bounce back against a poor defense with hopfully Julio Jones returning from injury.


Matthew Stafford (DET) @ JAX

Stafford has made a steady, if unspectacular, start to the season. Now he is coming off his bye week to play the Jaguars who are a middle of the road team in fantasy points allowed to the QB (21.1 FPPG). His star WR Kenny Golladay seems to be over his injury issues and I believe this game could turn into a bit of a shootout. You can start Stafford with confidence this week as a guy with a solid floor.

Sit Of The Week

Carson Wentz (PHI) Vs BAL

Carson Wentz is more like Carson Wontz this year. He has 9 interceptions and only 6 TDs passing. Oh and this week he faces Baltimore whose defense has been unreal against QBs. They made me worry about Baker Mayfield, but after seeing him against other teams I chalked it up to Baltimore just being that good. Wentz offensive line is going to have to give him time to throw and I do not think they will be able to. Sit Wentz!


Baker Mayfield (CLE) @ PIT

The aforementioned Mr. Mayfield has looked decent this year minus the Baltimore game. He is fulfilling his role on the team and they are winning games. I think he will continue to build confidence and look better and better this year. But, this week will be a different story as Pittsburgh
