Joshua Dobbs has a great opportunity to continue his hot streak in Minnesota: Going against the Denver Broncos provides an advantage in the trenches for Dobbs to deliver strong fantasy production once again.

Russell Wilson could also thrive on the other side of Sunday night’s matchup: Wilson has produced great numbers from a clean pocket and his offensive line should hold an advantage in that regard this week.
