TO THE GAMES!
That durn rook qb Herbert is 4th in the league in QB rating while passing on third downs. It wasn’t supposed to be this easy but the slipper keeps on fitting. The Raiders don’t defend outside the numbers very well so wr Williams might see some action and your sneaky play is Jalen Guyton who ran 40+ routes last week. He’s leading the league in yards per reception at a gaudy 29. As you might expect, his YAC is enormous. (that sounds, umm, odd)
I heard a satellite radio fantasy talker guy say, “the Steelers sometimes don’t show up for big games”. HOW IS THIS A ‘BIG GAME’? Anyhoo, since Prescott went down Zeke has been RB36, just behind the likes of Philip “just the one ‘l’, please” Lindsay and J.D. McKissic. I guess he’s finally full-full of ballast, amirite? He’s listed as questionable and if you’re able to trade him away you should because there are only 2 easy games-Minny and Cincy-left on the sked. As for someone trending upward, look no further than Conner. He’s RB12 right now and he has the Bengals and Jags after this cakewalk.
Miami’s D has slowly ticked upward and that has a lot to do with cb’s Jones and Howard being healthy at the same time. Still, it looks like the Cards get premo blocking te Maxx Williams back and Chase Edmonds has the rock. He does very well when he gets more than 14 carries in a game. The Cards love to run from a two te set and the Fins rank 30th when trying to defend the run from that formation. I don’t expect Miami to score many points on O because their rb position is a mess and because Tua didn’t exactly Herbert himself out there last week.
Go get ’em.
