Josh Allen at New York Jets
This is a matchup-based suggestion because the New York Jets are struggling on defense. Josh Allen should be able to utilize his rushing ability, in addition to finding his receivers down the field. The loss of John Brown could hurt this aspect, but his production should be undertaken by Stefon Diggs in the passing game. TheBuffalo Bills’ defense is dealing with some significant injuries, and with Sam Darnold returning to action; this fact may end up calling for more action from Josh Allen. Start him ina great matchup this week against a struggling divisional rival.
Teddy Bridgewater at New Orleans Saints
Teddy Bridgewater has performed incredibly well at the beginning of the season so far, and he looks to continue that trend against his old team in his old building. Although Christian McCaffrey will not be returning this week, the offense of the Carolina Panthers is healthy for the most part. This means all of Teddy Bridgewater’s weapons will be available to him for this match. Start him this week if he is available.
Ryan Tannehill vs Pittsburgh Steelers
The Tennessee Titans have a very negative matchup on their hands this week. The Pittsburgh Steelers defense is very difficult to deal with even without Devin Bush. The Tennessee Titans will look to run the ball and take time off the clock rather than letting Ben Roethlisberger take the game into his hands on offense. Look for an alternative start at quarterback this week due to the matchup.
Drew Brees vs Carolina Panthers
The loss of his main weapons in Emmanuel Sanders and Michael Thomas is the main reason for this suggestion to sit. It is simply difficult for quarterbacks to produce Fantasy points with a lack of weapons on offense. With this being a divisional game, be prepared for Drew Brees to be a negative for your team. Attempt to find another option at this position as this will be a frustrating game for Drew Brees.
