1 Ben Roethlisberger, Steelers vs. Falcons.  Since holding Nick Foles in verify through the 2018 opener, the Falcons have allowed a minimum of 30.78 fantasy factors to QBs prior to now three video games. Roethlisberger and the Steelers are determined to get a win and provided that their floor recreation hasn’t been nice these days, they may depend on an aerial assault to try to beat the Falcons. Both method, this recreation figures to be a shootout, and Huge Ben may very well be the highest QB this week due to it. 2 Matt Ryan, Falcons @ Steelers.  The Steelers have given up a median of 33.45 fantasy factors per recreation (FPPG) to QBs. Ryan might want to throw loads to maintain tempo on this potential offensive showdown, and that is his greatest matchup but. Begin him with confidence in Week 5. 3 Jared Goff, Rams @ Seahawks. At this level, it looks as if all of the Rams are matchup-proof gamers. Goff simply posted a 400-plus yard, 5 TD efficiency towards the Vikings. The Seahawks protection is far week — particularly after dropping their greatest cowl man Earl Thomas — so Goff ought to go off once more. 4 Cam Newton, Panthers vs. Giants. Newton returns from his bye week in a positive matchup with the Giants. The New York move protection has really been first rate this yr and ranks center of the pack in FPPG to quarterbacks. Nonetheless, they have not been nearly as good towards the run, and Newton’s dual-threat skill will make the Giants protection uneasy. That may open up alternatives for him to make performs in all features of the sport. 5 Tom Brady, Patriots vs. Colts. The Patriots offense lastly began to hum towards the Dolphins in Week 4. On a brief turnaround towards the Colts, the veteran Brady ought to have a bonus and will have an opportunity to surgically take down a protection that simply allowed 35.1 fantasy factors to Deshaun Watson. 6 Philip Rivers, Chargers vs. Raiders. The Raiders have allowed a minimum of 233 passing yards and two TDs to a few of the 4 QBs they’ve confronted this yr. Rivers is averaging 289 passing yards and nearly three TDs a recreation, so he ought to have an opportunity to select aside the weak Raiders protection that simply allowed the Browns to attain 40 factors for the primary time since December of 2009. 7 Aaron Rodgers, Packers @ Lions. The Lions simply allowed Dak Prescott to throw for 200-plus yards and move for 2 TDs for the primary time since Week 13 of final season. Rodgers remains to be nursing the knee damage he suffered within the first recreation of the season, and hasn’t fairly seemed himself. Rodgers solely has 4 complete TDs prior to now three video games, however he is nonetheless a greater than strong begin towards the Lions. 8 Drew Brees, Saints vs. Redskins. With Mark Ingram returning, the Saints could return to the ground-and-pound model offense that labored so properly for them final season. That will cap Brees’ upside, however he’ll nonetheless have an opportunity to get TDs (a number of TDs in three of 4 video games this season). 9 Patrick Mahomes II, Chiefs vs. Jaguars. That is going to be a large take a look at for Mahomes. The Jaguars have given up the fourth-fewest factors to QBs this season, and their protection has the personnel to restrict the Chiefs loaded offense. You may’t sit Mahomes primarily based on how he is been taking part in, however he is extra of a low-end QB1 this wee due to his powerful matchup. 10 Matthew Stafford, Lions vs. Packers. Since his dreadful begin to the season, Stafford has posted three video games the place he has scored a minimum of 21.5 fantasy factors. The Packers have allowed the ninth-most FPPG to the place and in a recreation that ought to be excessive scoring, Stafford might put up superb numbers. 11 Carson Wentz, Eagles vs. Vikings. Wentz is unlikely to throw the ball 50 instances like he did final week towards the Titans, and the Vikings protection is due for a bounce-back recreation. Wentz ought to nonetheless have the ability to rating a few instances, however do not be stunned if Mike Zimmer’s unit is ready to restrict him a bit greater than many could anticipate in Week 5. 12 Kirk Cousins, Vikings @ Eagles. Cousins could also be pressured to throw loads towards the Eagles if the Vikings cannot run the ball on the stout Philadelphia entrance. Nonetheless, the Philadelphia protection hasn’t been terrible towards QBs this yr, as they’ve restricted each Matt Ryan and Andrew Luck to mediocre video games. Cousins leads the NFL in move makes an attempt with 189, which explains why he is been such a strong fantasy producer by way of the primary month of the season, but when Philadelphia can include the Minnesota offense, it might be onerous for him to duplicate final week’s efficiency. 13 Deshaun Watson, Texans vs. Cowboys. Watson has thrown for a minimum of 300 yards and two TDs in three straight video games. The Cowboys are a strong move protection, however they simply let Matthew Stafford complete 24.78 fantasy factors. Watson may very well be in for the same day this week. 14 Andrew Luck, Colts @ Patriots. The Patriots protection is coming off a robust displaying towards the Dolphins, however they’ve been susceptible a bit this yr. On a brief week, they could have bother containing Luck, particularly as a result of his launch has been one of many quickest within the NFL this yr. Luck is coming off a large, 464 yard, 4 TD efficiency towards the Texans and if he can keep in that rhythm, he could have an opportunity to place up strong numbers. 15 Russell Wilson, Seahawks vs. Rams. The Rams protection is sweet. The Seahawks offensive line is dangerous. Wilson could have little time to throw and simply struggled to carry out properly towards the Cardinals. Sit him this week until you don’t have any higher options. 16 Alex Smith, Redskins @ Saints. Smith’s worth is normally TD dependent, however he ought to have an opportunity to place up good numbers towards the Saints. New Orleans has allowed probably the most FPPG to QBs, together with two 50-point outings to NFC South foes. Smith ought to have the ability to rating a few instances — particularly for the reason that Redskins could have had an additional week to arrange for the Saints. 17 Derek Carr, Raiders @ Chargers. Carr is coming off a 4 TD recreation towards the Browns, and the Chargers protection permits the seventh-most FPPG to quarterbacks. Final week, they allowed C.J. Beathard to attain 21.82 fantasy factors, so Carr ought to have an opportunity to do even higher towards the mediocre Chargers protection. 18 Marcus Mariota, Titans @ Payments. Mariota lastly was capable of log a passing TD final week, and ended up with three complete scores on the day. He additionally put up a minimum of 46 working yards for the second straight week. In a strong matchup with the Payments, he might be trusted as a streaming choice this week. 19 Andy Dalton, Bengals vs. Dolphins. Dalton has posted a minimum of 243 yards and two TDs in each recreation this yr. At residence towards the Dolphins, he ought to put up strong numbers. 20 Case Keenum, Broncos @ Jets 21 Joe Flacco, Ravens @ Browns. Flacco has quietly been a reasonably good fantasy choice this yr, posting a minimum of 21.Eight factors in three of 4 video games this yr. The Browns simply let Derek Carr throw throughout them, so Flacco might find yourself being an honest add when you’re determined for a starter. 22 Blake Bortles, Jaguars @ Chiefs 23 Dak Prescott, Cowboys @ Texans. Can Prescott put up strong numbers once more? It is doable given the state of the Houston secondary, however on the street towards a strong entrance seven, there are different choices that we like higher than Prescott. 24 Baker Mayfield, Browns vs. Ravens. Mayfield nonetheless has to show himself earlier than we’re prepared to belief him as even a streamer — particularly towards a troublesome Ravens protection that’s getting their No. 1 nook (Jimmy Smith) again from suspension. 25 Ryan Tannehill, Dolphins @ Bengals 26 Josh Rosen, Cardinals @ 49ers. Rosen has a positive matchup on paper, however he cannot be trusted as a starter till he really places forth a strong outing. 27 Eli Manning, Giants @ Panthers 28 Sam Darnold, Jets vs. Broncos 29 Josh Allen, Payments vs. Titans 30 C.J. Beathard, 49ers vs. Cardinals
