JUMP TO A POSITION RANKING:
|Tier||Rank||Player||Opponent||Total||Spread||Implied Points||QB SOS||OL PBA||PPR||Injury Status|
Removed from ranks: Justin Fields (out – ribs)
Tier 1 – Tom Brady has more top-five finishes (six) than any other QB in fantasy football. The Bucs have the second-highest implied points on the slate against the Colts. If Mike Evans (questionable) nor Antonio Brown (questionable) can go, Brady will drop to Tier 2.
Tier 2 – Jalen Hurts is used more than any other quarterback on designed-rushing attempts (24.1%) and draws a matchup against the Giants. The Eagles ran the ball on 69%, 58%, 59% and 60% of their plays in the last four games, and the Giants give up 25.8 regulation rushing attempts per game (11th).
Tier 2 – Dak Prescott and the Cowboys draw the No. 1 implied points of the week (29.5) against the Raiders. Amari Cooper won't suit up (COVID-19), but CeeDee Lamb (concussion) could play on Thanksgiving Day. If Lamb can't go, Prescott drops below Aaron Rodgers.
Tier 2 – Cam Newton accounted for 38% of the Panthers' designed rushing attempts last week on his way to a QB4 finish. He draws a favorable matchup against the Dolphins, who allow 23.4 points per game to opposing quarterbacks. Miami utilizes man coverage more than any other NFL team, offering plenty of scrambling upside, and Newton will see a healthy number of single-man coverage opportunities.
