Derek Carr @ Kansas City

Derek Carr is coming off a terrible game against the Denver Broncos. He was 21-34 for 188 yards and no TDs…Gross but he also played the 4th ranked D in the NFL.

This Week:

  • ✅ matchup in Week 5 is too good to pass up for Carr. 
  • ✅ Chiefs have allowed the 5th most points per game to QB
  • ✅ 20 fantasy points to QBs in 3 of last 4 games. 
  • ✅ allow the fifth-most points on average to the position at 21 ppg
  • ✅ Anytime you go up against Mahomes expect a high-scoring shootout, 
  • ✅ Garbage points galore
  • ✅ Carr has good chance to register a top 12 QB finish  and 20-point plus points

Start Carr over:

  • Cousins vs Chi 
  • Stafford vs Dal
  • Russ Wilson vs Ind

Ryan Tannehill Washington

QB 19 on the season but has had some surprisingly good games. This week he gets a weak Washington Commanders secondary that has allowed 10 pass TDs on the season. We just saw Rush work this defense and I expect a solid day again from Tanny with high-end QB2 upside for Week 5. On the season Tanny has 3 games over 18 points and 6 TDs, including 2 last week vs the Colts, He only has one stinker on the year and that was vs Buffalo, as expected.

Start Over:

  • Stafford vs Dal
  • Geno Smith vs NO
  • Zach Wilson vs Mia
  • Winston vs NYJ
  • Maybe even Russ vs Ind

Kareem Hunt vs LA Chargers

Week 1 vs Carolina Hunt had 23 points. Since then, in the last 3 games, he was under 10 points in each. Hunt has 4 straight games with double-digit touches. I expect them to get Hunt involved in a sweet matchup tailored to his game this week. Chargers have allowed an NFL-high three receiving TDs to RBs, and the fifth-most receiving yards (181) to the position. Hunt is an RB2 with upside this week.

Start Over:

  • Melvin Gordon vs Ind
  • Zeke and Pollard vs LAR
  • Penny vs NO 
  • Conner vs Phi

Chris Godwin vs Atlanta

Godwin had seven receptions (10 targets) for 59 yards in Sunday’s 41-31 loss to the Chiefs. IF Chris Godwin is healthy he belongs in lineups. WR16 in 14 games last year. You can destroy the Falcons in the slot away from their strengths outside. Jarvis Landry feasted in Week 1 (7-114), in week 2 Kupp had 11 for 108, Lockett in Week 3 had 9 for 76, and Peoples-Jones in Week 4 had 5 for 72. The Falcons are 28th vs slot WRs and with a banged-up Bucs team including Cameron Brate, Russell Gage, Julio Jones, and a limited run game in Fournette, expect a game from Godwin. The Falcons have given up over 100 points in 4 games.

Start Over:

  • Keenan Allen vs Cle
  • Sutton vs Ind
  • Devonta Smith vs AZ
  • DK Metcalf vs NO
