This Saints pass defense has come back to what we expect from them this season, ranking 30th in the league. Dak Prescott has been playing at an MVP-level thus far, and I don’t expect that to change on Sunday night in the Superdome. I love Prescott going forward, and I love him in this matchup.
Despite what they have on paper, the Redskins defense has been quite underwhelming. We saw that first hand when they let Mitch Trubisky, who hasn’t been able to throw against anyone, light them up for three touchdowns. Daniel Jones showed us what he could do against the Bucs, and the Skins are on short rest. I like Jones to have another big game this week and would start him over a QB like Tom Brady.
It has been an abysmal start for fantasy owners that drafted James Conner, and I don’t think that is going to get much better with Big Ben out for the season. However, for one week, Conner should be poised for some substantial production. The Bengals are 31st in the NFL against the run and allowing nearly five yards per carry.
The Colts are a fantastic matchup for running backs. Devonta Freeman, who was stuffed on the ground in Weeks 1 and 2, recorded over five yards per carry against Indianapolis last week. If the Raiders are going to be competitive in this one, they are going to have to lean on Josh Jacobs on the road.
The Jared Goff to Cooper Kupp connection is back, and it is here to stay. The Rams are up against a weak Tampa Bay defense that is traveling across the country. Kupp should be in for another huge afternoon,
I’m expecting T.Y. Hilton to be out there on Sunday against the Raiders. If he is, there is no question he deserves to be in your starting lineup, but I also like him as a DFS play. Hilton has excelled with Brissett at quarterback, who has proven over three weeks he is a deserving starter in this league. The Raiders are giving up nearly 300 yards passing per game. This has monster-game written all over it for Hilton if he is healthy and active.
I like Carson Wentz a lot, but injuries have taken away all of his weapons. He’s still been able to make something out of nothing more times than not, but he’s up against a Packers defense that has allowed under 200 yards passing a game. Now, Green Bay has yet to go against a high-powered offense, but given they are at home on Thursday night, this is going to be a tough matchup for Wentz to thrive in, especially without his best wide receivers.
David Montgomery is now the featured back in Chicago, and his fantasy owners should be thrilled. By the end of the year, he might even creep into RB1 territory if the Bears offense can get going. However, I don’t see Chicago scoring many points in this one or running very effectively against a talented Vikings front. He’s a guy you might start but is nothing more than a flex play for me.
If you have him in fantasy leagues, you’re starting him, but in DFS contests, Chubb is a stay away. Cleveland’s offensive line has not provided him with too many holes to run through thus far, and Baltimore has the third-ranked rush defense in the league. Combine that with the fact that this could be a low-scoring slugfest; I don’t love Chubb in this spot.
Historically, Tom Brady has owned the Bills at home and on the road. However, in his last two matchups in Buffalo, he has no touchdowns and one interception. This is the best Bills team Brady has played in a while. They are 3-0, and it will be an absolute party in the stadium among Bills Mafia. I believe in this Buffalo defense. With no Antonio Brown and possibly no Julian Edelman, I could see this being a tough game for Brady statistically.
Emmanuel Sanders followed his prolific start to the season with a dud in Week 3. It is going to be tough to trust Sanders from week-to-week because this Broncos offense is anemic. Flacco looks like it’s about time to hang it up, and they are up against a more than respectable Jaguars defense. I’m benching Sanders this week if I have any comparable options.
