Mike Tagliere
FantasyPros
He continued his solid play in Week 10, posting his fifth top-10 finish in his last six games. He's posted a ridiculous 8.1 percent touchdown-rate since Week 5. We cannot forget that if/when his efficiency declines, we're going to see a floor that's lower than most. The Broncos rank third in the NFL when it comes to total fantasy points per game allowed to opponents behind only the Patriots and 49ers. Naturally, that affects the quarterback more than most, as we've still yet to see a top-12 finish against the Vic Fangio defense this year. In fact, 7-of-9 quarterbacks have finished outside the top 20 quarterbacks, which is quite ridiculous. There hasn't been a quarterback who's thrown for more than 273 yards and we've seen just one quarterback throw more than one touchdown. They have just a 6.1 percent sack-rate, but after not generating any the first three weeks, they've totaled 19 over their last six games. The Vikings should be simply looking to escape this game with a win into their bye week, which should severely limit Cousins' pass attempts against this highly efficient defense. He's not someone you should aim to play this week, as he's just a middling QB2.It's been a rough season for the Eagles passing game, as it seemed they made a lot of plans around DeSean Jackson, but losing him in Week 2 has dragged down the potential for everyone, and particularly Wentz. After totaling 25.0 points in the first game, he's been held to 15.1 points or less in 4-of-8 games. He's thrown for more than 259 yards just twice and that's despite averaging 33.7 pass attempts per game. He's failed to throw more than one touchdown in four of the last five games and hasn't topped 7.6 yards per attempt since back in Week 1 with Jackson. The Patriots are clearly not the best matchup for quarterbacks, as they've allowed just a 54.1 percent completion-rate, 5.29 yards per attempt, and three passing touchdowns while intercepting 19 passes through nine games. The 7.4 fantasy points per game they've allowed to quarterbacks would rank 75th among wide receivers. Lamar Jackson raised that number quite a bit with his rushing totals, as quarterbacks have averaged just 0.19 fantasy points per pass attempt against the Patriots, while no other team has allowed less than 0.32 points per attempt. Their competition has been extremely weak and they're due for regression and knowing that Doug Pederson has had two full weeks to prepare for this game, they should be able to put some points on the board. Still, Wentz is nothing more than a high-end QB2 in this game and should likely be more towards the middling QB2 conversation. He should make for a semi-decent tournament option in DFS, though, in case this game turns into a shootout.
