QB Notes: Coming off a QB5 finish vs. the Patriots’ supposedly-impenetrable unit, Lamar Jackson gets a Bengals Defense that has allowed 141 more quarterback rushing yards than any other team. That’s due in large part to the 19/152/1 L-Jax dropped on them in Week 6. All systems go. … A Titans pass defense that is quietly the 13th worst by DVOA is now without Malcolm Butler. Just in time for Patrick Mahomes to return from his two-game absence. Mahomes’ time away hopefully helped his ankle heal up in addition to his knee. … The second worst pass defense by DVOA? The Falcons, who are tasked with slowing Drew Brees down at the Superdome. Brees annihilated the Cardinals for 34-of-43 passing, 373 yards and three scores in his Week 8 return. Brees has cleared 370 yards in each of his 2019 home starts. … Coming off one of the best two-game stretches of his career, Aaron Rodgers stunningly turned in one of Week 9’s worst quarterback performances. The stink bomb was all the more surprising since it happened as Davante Adams returned. Although the game takes place in Green Bay, Rodgers will be trying to bounce back against a Panthers Defense that’s been elite.    

The QB8 by average points, Jameis Winston has been getting his fantasy numbers come hell or high water. Facing a Cardinals Defense surrendering the most quarterback fantasy points, Winston will be getting O.J. Howard back behind Mike Evans and Chris Godwin. Winston hasn’t featured Howard this season, but the Cardinals are also coughing up the most TE fantasy points. … Whatever happened to Russell Wilson’s regression? His 7.5 touchdown percentage is indeed lower than last year’s 8.2 mark, but it happens to lead the league. Wilson has an imposing Week 10 opponent in the 49ers, though Robert Saleh’s unit sprung some leaks in Week 9. MVP frontrunner Wilson can only be dropped so far in the ranks. … When last we left Matt Ryan, he was having just his second bad fantasy day of the year. The Saints were on the warpath vs. opposing QBs heading into their Week 9 bye, but the Falcons will have no choice but to spend the entirety of their 60 minutes in the Superdome throwing. … The Bucs’ pass defense has settled into being merely bad instead of league worst. That should be just fine for Kyler Murray, who is coming off a breakthrough vs. the NFC’s best unit. Murray, astoundingly, had back-to-back scoreless efforts before last Thursday’s big night.

The Bears have maintained the NFL’s seventh best pass defense by DVOA and seventh best by QB fantasy points allowed. It’s a heat check moment for Matthew Stafford, who has reeled off three straight three-TD days as the Lions’ run game has disappeared. Stafford leads the league in yards per game (312.4) and is second in TDs (19). … The narrative is never settled on Dak Prescott, who is good again after dismantling the Giants for the second time in as many 2019 starts. The Twitter fight could begin anew after a date with the Vikings’ solid pass D. … Philip Rivers has reached 290 yards 7-of-9 appearances but has only 14 scores to show for it. He hasn’t had a three-touchdown day since Week 1. The Raiders’ talent-deficient defense certainly has the (lack of) personnel to change that. … Nearly half (six) of Jimmy Garoppolo’s 13 touchdowns have come in his past two starts. One was a bad matchup (Carolina), the other A+ (Arizona). The Seahawks skew more toward the latter than former. Emmanuel Sanders has transformed the 49ers’ passing attack. 

Jared Goff has yet to have a three-touchdown day through the air. @PIT will be an unlikely spot to jump start his 2019, especially with Brandin Cooks (concussion) on the shelf. Elite by DVOA, the Steelers’ pass defense has permitted the ninth fewest QB fantasy points. … Missing Adam Thielen (hamstring), Kirk Cousins has a tough road date with the Cowboys, who have allowed only seven passing scores through eight games. Typically streaky, Cousins is probably headed for another low ebb. … Playing genuinely good football for the first time in years, Derek Carr has a daunting short-week draw in the Chargers. Fresh off erasing Aaron Rodgers, the Bolts have been stung for the sixth fewest QB fantasy points. … Daniel Jones has been horrible, committing 14 turnovers while generating 13 scores. That includes 7:6 over his past three starts … a span in which he’s been the QB6 in fantasy. As we all know by now, these things don’t always line up. The increasingly hollowed-out Jets are not a foreboding matchup. … Quietly playing solid pass defense — No. 4 in DVOA! (I know I’m on a DVOA kick this week.) — the Chiefs are hardly a blow-up spot for Ryan Tannehill coming off a supremely Tannehill-ian day vs. the Panthers. 

Josh Allen is lucky to be the QB13 by average points. He’s established a reasonable floor while lacking last year’s ceiling. Say what you will about the Browns, @CLE hardly feels like an Allen smash spot. … If Brian Hoyer starts over Jacoby Brissett (knee), he will be doing so without T.Y. Hilton (calf) and Parris Campbell (broken hand). The Dolphins should nevertheless find a way to make two scores happen. If Brissett goes, he will not be much higher in the ranks. … Ryan Fitzpatrick enters Week 10 down Mark Walton (suspension) and Preston Williams (knee, IR). If you’re starting him, you’re betting on magic in a week with six teams on bye. … I wanted to be wrong about Sam Darnold last week, but it turns out there really is no such thing as a good matchup for the spooked sophomore. With his team circling the drain, and Le’Veon Bell potentially out with a knee injury, Darnold doesn’t have a Week 10 floor. … Kyle Allen isn’t good, but he’s done a better job of providing floor than a lot of his QB20-32 brethren. … Baker Mayfield hasn’t had a single two-TD through the air. Lunacy.
