Teddy Bridgewater at Atlanta Falcons

As he is currently third in the league in completion percentage, Teddy Bridgewater is turning into a sneaky play through the first four weeks of the season. He should take advantage of the depleted Atlanta Falcons secondary and produce a large number of fantasy points for the GM that decides to start him this week. With a great matchup, look to start Teddy Bridgewater if you need a quarterback this week.

Justin Herbert at New Orleans Saints

Starting his career exceptionally well, Justin Herbert looks to get his first win on Monday night under the lights. This level of competition is going to push Justin Herbert to the fullest extent. Translate to a large amount of fantasy points production even if Mike Williams is unavailable for this contest. Start this quarterback and the upside will be surprising.


Baker Mayfield at Indianapolis Colts

Going up against the top defense in the league is a difficult task for any quarterback, and this is the case in this match. The Indianapolis Colts will focus on stopping the pass, and this will hurt the Cleveland Browns offense with Nick Chubb recently being out with injury. Kareem Hunt is a very capable replacement, but this will be a tough task against this defense. Look for another quarterback because Baker Mayfield will not produce the points needed this week.

Joe Burrow at Baltimore Ravens

This player has had a great start to his career, even though his first win in the NFL came last week. He has displayed the attributes needed by a franchise quarterback to win football games. This week’s Game, however, will be a challenge like nothing he has faced so far. Being one of the best defenses in the league could be enough to discourage starting the opposing quarterback in your fantasy league, but this often is also one of the best in the league. This may enable the Baltimore Ravens to run away with the game if they acquire a lead early. Sit this player for this week, because the Fantasy point production just won’t be there.
