Start: Jared Goff, Lions
Sportsbooks love the Lions this week, giving them the second-highest team total of Week 11. The Bears have given up the fifth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks and rank 31st in EPA per dropback. They are trending toward overtaking Denver for the worst pass defense in the league by EPA per play.
Start: Joshua Dobbs, Vikings
The Vikings have shockingly stayed consistent with their pass-first approach since losing Kirk Cousins. Over the past two weeks, the offense has had a positive pass rate over expected despite giving two quarterbacks their first start in Minnesota.
The elevated number of dropbacks for Dobbs has helped his passing numbers and has also juiced his rushing stats via scrambles. He has 15 carries for 110 yards and two touchdowns in Minnesota.
Sit: Baker Mayfield, Bucs
Mayfield has been impressive this year. Passed on by multiple teams in recent seasons, he has partially reinvented himself in Tamp Bay by cutting out many of the backbreaking mistakes he couldn’t stop making while in Carolina and Cleveland. I write this to cushion the blow of having him ranked as my QB24 this week. Vegas has the Bucs, who are road dogs versus the 49ers, with a 14.75 point total. That’s ahead of only the Giants. The 49ers’ defense is fourth in EPA per dropback and has allowed the fourth-fewest fantasy points to opposing passers. Despite Baker’s turnaround, this week is a nightmare for him.
Sit: Will Levis, Titans
After his four-score debut a few weeks ago, Levis has come crashing back to Earth. Even including that game, Levis ranks 26th in EPA per dropback and 25th in CPOE. Both marks rank behind Ryan Tannehill. The Titans refuse to use Levis on designed runs and the rookie isn’t scrambling either, leaving no fantasy value to be mined here.
Start: Brian Robinson, Commanders
Robinson and the Commanders are 11-point favorites versus the Giants. New York has faced the third-most carries from…
