Quarterbacks

Kyler Murray: In his first game back from an ankle injury, Murray dominated the Bears’ defense. Finishing the game with 30.82 points off of 123 yards and two touchdowns through the air, as well as, 59 yards and another two touchdowns on the ground. Murray has an intriguing matchup against the Rams next week, whose defense has been very inconsistent. Regardless, the elite dual-threat quarterback is a must-start

Tom Brady: In his second victory over the Falcons this season, Brady threw for 368 yards and a touchdown to finish the game with 28.62 points. Brady had his best game since week eight in the Buccaneers’ win. Surrounded by a talented receiving corp, Brady is a top-tier fantasy quarterback, who has the potential to single-handedly win fantasy games. However, he faces a tough Buffalo defense that could limit his production next week.

Justin Herbert: In a dominant victory over the Bengals, Herbert picked apart the Bengals secondary, throwing for 317 yards and three touchdown passes. Herbert finished the game with a total of 25.28 points despite throwing his eleventh interception of the season. Herbert and the Chargers head into a good matchup against the Giants next week where he could have another great fantasy performance.

Matthew Stafford: Stafford led the Rams to their first victory since week eight with 24.0 fantasy points. Throwing for 295 yards and three touchdowns against a weak Jaguars defense, Stafford topped 20 points for the seventh time this season. Stafford is a must-start each week no matter his matchup. However, the Rams face a tough Cardinals defense that could limit his fantasy production.

Zach Wilson: Although the Jets could not secure the victory over the Eagles, Wilson had his best game of the season, finishing with a total of 21.04 points. Wilson finished the game with two total touchdowns and 226 yards against the Eagles this week. However, he is not a viable fantasy option in a weak, inconsistent offense.

Taysom Hill: Despite a terrible four-interception game against the Cowboys on Thursday night, Hill was still able to put up a total of 20.66 points. Hill finished the game with 264 yards and two touchdown passes, as well as, 101 yards on the ground. Hill has a great matchup against the Jets next week which could make him a viable replacement if he can limit the turnovers.
