Quarterback

Lamar Jackson at Cincinnati $7,300

Lamar Jackson comes in priced the highest among quarterbacks this week, higher than we’ve seen him priced at all season, but I’m all-in on him in both Cash and GPP contests. Jackson is averaging 27.65 FP/G and will face a Bengals defense that ranks 30th in DVOA against the pass and has allowed an average of 22.8 FP/G to opposing QBs. The Ravens are favored by 9.5-points which isn’t optimal for continued quarterback passing, but Jackson’s 12.4 rushing attempt per game average will keep him scoring points the entirety of the game.

Drew Brees vs. Atlanta $6,700

It was good to see Drew Brees back in action last week. He threw 43 passes (six of which were in the red zone) for 373 yards and three touchdowns. This week, he’s at home against a Falcons defense that ranks 31st in DVOA against the pass and is allowing 25.8 FP/G to opposing QBs this season, the 4th-most in the league. The Saints are massive 13-point favorites which could limit Brees passing volume, but with a team implied point total of 51 points, I have little doubt that Brees will accrue enough of that to return legitimate value.
