Kyle Yates
FantasyPros
From an actual NFL QB perspective, Bridgewater looks fantastic. He's navigating the pocket extremely well and is keeping plays alive with his underrated mobility. With that being said, he's not getting it done for fantasy purposes and he has a tough matchup here against the Saints. Bridgewater should be viewed as a low-end QB2 in this matchup.Baker struggled immensely last week against a tough Steelers defense. While he wasn't being recommended as a streaming option last week, he hurt fantasy managers that took the chance on him in that matchup. It's going to be hard to trust him after what we saw last week, but this is a fantastic matchup for him. Mayfield can be viewed as a mid-range QB2 that can be plugged into your lineup in a pinch.
