Joe Flacco vs New Orleans
(33% owned)

While the Joe Flacco experience has not been great for Ravens fans or fantasy football owners, this season has been different. He has 2 games over 350 yards and a TD in every game outside of one. He also has multiple TDs in half of his games. The additions of Michael Crabtree, John Brown and Willie Snead certainly did not hurt.

This week he faces a Saints defense that has struggled against the pass allowing the third most fantasy points to opposing QBs. The Saints have been torched by Ryan Fitzpatrick and Matt Ryan which make their numbers look worse. That said Baker Mayfield, Eli Manning and Alex Smith are averaged more than 250 passing yards against this defense.

I expect Flacco to eclipse 250 passing yards and to throw multiple TDs in this game at home. He should be a borderline QB1 this week.

Dak Prescott at Washington
(34%)

Dak Prescott was very impressive a week ago against the Jaguars throwing for 183 yards, rushing for another 82 and scoring 3 total TDs. It was the second time in his last three games where he scored multiple TDs.

This week he faces a Washington defense that has allowed multiple passing TDs in every game outside of the opener against Sam Bradford. I expect another strong performance from Prescott this week, even on the road.

Mitch Trubisky vs New England
(42%)

This week Mitch Trubisky takes on the New England Patriots. A defense that has had issues this season and was torched on Sunday night by Patrick Mahomes. The have allowed more than one TD in 4 of 6 games and 350 plus passing yards in 3 of 6 games.

It seems as though Trubisky is starting to get comfortable in this offense. He has gone over 300 passing yards in two straight games with 9 total TDs in those 2 games.

I expect another strong performance here where Trubisky will have to keep pace with Brady, Gronk and Co.

I prefer Flacco and Dak this week but Trubisky is a good alternative if you can’t add either.
