Each week the Ballers release their Premium Projections and Flex rankings to Patreon members at JointheFoot.com. Here were some of this week’s projections, common flex rankings conundrums and Ballers’ “Starts of the Week” that hopefully led you to a Week 7 win.
3 QB Projections that Will Influence Fantasy Matchups
1. Carson Wentz is projected for 23.1 fantasy points against the Panthers. posting back-to-back top-12 performances. He should be in the running this week against a Carolina defense that carries a name but has failed to follow through in 2018. The Panthers rank 21st in defensive DVOA and are especially exploitable to fantasy TEs, ranking 25th against the position. The Eagles funnel more targets to the TE position than any other team and carry a healthy 25 point team implied total. Wentz is ranked as the QBx this week in the Ballers rankings.
2. Jared Goff is projected for 31.3 fantasy points against San Francisco. The 49ers have given up the 8th most fantasy points to opposing QBs and rank 25th in DVOA against the pass. Goff ranks 2nd in the league in yards per completion (9.9) as his efficiency metrics have been stellar all year long. The 49ers also are not forcing turnovers seeing only 1 INT and getting killed in the red zone. Sounds like a Jared GARF kinda week. He is Jason’s QB “Start of the Week”.
