Aaron Kagan gives his thoughts on the QB landscape with two QBs to start and two QBs to sit in this week’s fantasy football matchups.
Justin Herbert VS Las Vegas Raiders
Justin Herbert has performed extraordinarily well to start his career, though he may not have many wins quite yet. This is an opportunity against a division rival to perform well and execute the team’s game plan. His star wide receivers will be healthy for this game (as long as Keenan Allen’s COVID test comes back negative), and this will allow Herbert the ability to make any passes in his repertoire. Start him with confidence this week to score Fantasy points.
Cam Newton VS New York Jets
Although his game statistics won’t say so, Cam Newton has been a productive quarterback for fantasy football purposes. As long as he can control the turnovers, he may compile a productive Fantasy football points-scoring day. Start this quarterback with expectations that points will be scored with his rushing ability.
Daniel Jones at Washington Football Team
Divisional games are always difficult for quarterbacks to produce fantasy points. Pass rushing defenses also have this effect on opposing quarterback. With one of his main receiving weapons, Golden Tate not being active for this game will compound these struggles. Look for another option at quarterback if fantasy points are needed from the position. This is a bad matchup for this quarterback.
Ryan Tannehill VS Chicago Bears
The Tennessee Titans’ offensive line has taken a significant downturn since the loss of Taylor Lewan to injury. The pass protection for Ryan Tannehill has been struggling to protect him, and that looks to continue against the pass-rushing defense of the Chicago Bears. The fantasy point production of Ryan Tannehill will be severely limited in this game. Look for another option at quarterback if he is your starter currently.
