Quarterbacks

DrewLock (DEN)
Highest rank: QB10 Lowest Rank: QB26
TheDetroit Lions are fresh off enabling a 458- lawn, 4 goal efficiency to JameisWinston It was the 6th time in 9 video games that Detroit had actually enabled 3 or more goal passes to an opposing quarterback. On the season, the Lions have actually given up an average of 301.3 passing backyards per video game.

DrewLock naturally had a hard time in Kansas City however gets the best bounce-back match in Week16 He showed his benefit in a 24.9- point efficiency in Week 14, and might duplicate that success today.

Prediction: Feast

Other feasters: AndyDalton (CIN) at MIA, PhilipRivers (LAC) vs OAK.

KirkCousins (MINUTES)
Highest rank: QB7. Lowest rank: QB22
For this one, it is very important to distinguish a “bust” possibility from a “low ceiling” one. The Green Bay Packers have not been closing down opposing quarterbacks frequently, though they have actually been restricting their benefit. Only one signal-caller has actually handled more than 20 points versus Green Bay all season, which was DakPrescott in Week 5.

KirkCousins has actually stopped working to score more than 18 points in 9 of his 14 contests this season, consisting of 3 straight. Cousins has actually stopped working to reach 14 points in 4 of his 6 house video games. DalvinCook’s most likely lack may impede Cousins more than assist him, as the Packers would not need to appreciate the run as much.

Prediction: Famine

Other starvations: TomBrady (NE) vs BUF, DerekCarr (OAK) at LAC.

RunningBacks

MarlonMack (IND)
Highest rank: RB3. Lowest rank: RB24
It must be apparent by now, however beginning any running back versus the Carolina Panthers is a sensible relocation. Carolina has actually given up an overwhelming 2,070 overall backyards and 26 goals to opposing backs this season. Wowza.

Mack has actually revealed the tendency for huge video games this season, scoring 15.5 or more points in half PPR formats on 10 various celebrations over the last 2 seasons. This week must make it 11.

Prediction: Feast

Other feasters: DevontaFreeman (ATL) vs JAC, RonaldJones II (TB) vs HOU.

Le’VeonBell (NYJ)
Highest rank: RB10 Lowest rank: RB30
Just one running back has actually scored more than 13.8 versus the Pittsburgh Steelers all season. The vengeance story is good and all, however Le’VeonBell has rating less than 15 in 9 of his 13 video games this season.

Pittsburgh has yet to enable a single running back to overall 100 backyards versus them this year. It’s difficult to picture Bell getting anything breaking this defense.

Prediction: Famine

Other starvations: ToddGurley (LAR) at SF, DevinSingletary (BUF) at NE.

WideReceivers

Terry McLaurin (WAS)
Highest rank: WR10 Lowest rank: WR27
Seven pass receivers have actually amounted to 16 or more dream points versus the Giants over their last 7 video games. New York has actually enabled 12 goals to wideouts throughout that duration.

After having a hard time strongly with DwayneHaskins to begin, Terry McLaurin has actually published a minimum of 50 backyards and a rating in 2 successive video games. He must opt for the trifecta today.

Prediction: Feast

Other feasters: WillFuller (HOU) at TB, JohnRoss (CIN) at MIA.

AllenRobinson (CHI)
Highest rank: WR3. Lowest rank: WR28
After a rough start to their season, the Kansas City Chiefs secondary has actually been absolutely nothing except excellent. From a dream viewpoint, not a single outdoors receiver has actually reached 12 points versus the Chiefs because Week 4.

AllenRobinson has actually been showcasing his benefit, particularly since late– as he’s published 16 or more dream points in 4 successive video games. That stated, he’s likewise had a low flooring, with 2 video games of less than 4 dream points in the 3 video games prior to his hot stretch. This might be another low-floor match.

Prediction: Famine

Other starvations: GregWard (PHI) vs DAL, JohnBrown (BUF) at NE.

TightEnds

JacobHollister (SEA)
Highest rank: TE4. Lowest rank: TE15
JacobHollister hasn’t done much just recently, so this is absolutely nothing more than a match play. The Arizona Cardinals have actually quit 1,023 backyards and 15 ratings to the tight end position this season. Their 19.6 points enabled to the position per video game is 4.2 points greater than any other group.

Unless you have among the leading alternatives, I ‘d roll with Hollister.

Prediction: Feast
