Derek Lofland
FantasyPros
The Colts are 18th against fantasy quarterbacks, Watson should be a solid QB1 on the road this week.The Rams are 13th against fantasy quarterbacks and they have now acquired CB Jalen Ramsey. Ryan should still be a low-end QB1 at home.
Zach Brunner
FantasyPros
 As bad as the Falcons have been, Matt Ryan continues to put up big numbers. Rams acquiring Jalen Ramsey helps them a bit, but it's still a matchup that Ryan can take advantage of at home. He remains a top QB option every week, as he plays from behind in nearly every game.
Donald Gibson
FantasyPros
Let's not rush to conclusions just yet, but Watson is at least starting a conversation to be the most bulletproof fantasy quarterback instead of Patrick Mahomes. He's been lights out this season, and you aren't thinking twice about starting him.
