Removed from list:Jared Goff (doubtful – oblique, DNP all week); Zach Wilson (doubtful – knee, LP all week)

Tier 1 – Lamar Jackson is questionable due to a non-COVID-related illness. Jackson practiced fully on Friday after missing Wednesday and Thursday but was added to the injury report on Saturday. However, it is an early game, so fantasy managers will have plenty of time to pivot.

Tier 1 – Tom Brady had an unexpectedly rough game against Washington in Week 10, but he draws a solid matchup against the Giants. The Buccaneers are heavy favorites, but it doesn't matter — they throw the ball well above league averages whether in trailing, close or leading game scripts.

Tier 2 – Dak Prescott lands in a potential shoot-out matchup with the No. 1 game total and the sixth-ranked implied points against the Chiefs. The Cowboys have shown a willingness to run with a lead, but Kansas City could force Dallas into its high-flying aerial attack mode.

Tier 2 – Kyler Murray worked in a limited fashion all week. If he plays, we may not see the routine upside that the third-year quarterback provides in the rushing department. However, it is a division game against the Seahawks, and Colt McCoy is also hurt. Expect Murray to play.

Tier 2 – Jalen Hurts and the Eagles are officially a run-heavy team, capping his passing upside. However, he still ranks second in the NFL in designed-rushing attempts for quarterbacks (23%), and the offense is running more efficiently. The Saints present a tough matchup through the air.

Tier 3 – Justin Fields is handling more of the team's designed rushing attempts, and his scramble rate is tops in the league (12%). He registered his first 250-plus yard passing game in Week 9 in an impressive showing at the Steelers. The matchup against the Ravens won't be easy, but the rookie's legs provide a sturdy starting floor.

Tier 3 – Cam Newton will get his first start of the year in a nice matchup against Washington, which lost Chase Young for the season. Expect the veteran to be active in the ground game inside the five-yard line. His upside as a passer appeared diminished with New England last season, but this receiving corps is a massive upgrade.
