Lamar Jackson has proven more than once this year that he is confrontational, and we generally feel the same about Patrick Mahomes despite some failed games. After the dismantling of the Patriots on Sunday night, we also have to say the same about Deshaun Watson. Dak Prescott could (emphasis on "could,quot;) do the same. Anyway, everyone is in difficult times for the first week of the fantasy playoffs, even if the majority is still high in our QB ranking of Week 14 fantasy.
Once again, Jackson (@ Bills) and Mahomes (@ Patriots) are still in our top three, and Watson is still in our top seven, but Prescott is out of our initial level. Like Jameis Winston (vs. Colts), Josh Allen (vs. Ravens) and Drew Brees (vs. 49ers). We know that everyone can contribute large numbers, especially Allen and Prescott, who can fill in their statistics with their legs, but it is difficult to feel good with anyone during such an important week.
Of course, the question is: "Who replaces them?" The best clashes for Week 14 seem to be Sam Darnold (against Dolphins), Ryan Tannehill (@ Raiders), Jacoby Brissett (@ Buccaneers) and Jimmy Garoppolo (@ Saints). There are also reliability issues with these players, but at least the clashes are significantly favorable.
Hello, at least we are not suggesting Kyle Allen (@ Falcons), Duck Hodges (@ Cardinals) or Drew Lock (@ Texans), who also have big clashes. Although Duck looked pretty good last week …
In general, the quarterback is a position where you can take risks with talented and proven players even in difficult confrontations, but it is also a position where favorable confrontations tend to be quite reliable, at least for decent QB. We tend to favor confrontations in most cases, but trust your instincts with these difficult decisions to start and sit down.
Reminder: Check again for classifications updates during the week
