Marcus Mariota (vs New England)
This one could be a little rough with the Titans #2 and #3 receivers banged up and Corey Davis likely facing Stephon Gilmore, but that could also encourage Mariota to run more. The game script should force the Titans to play catch up ball in the second half and Mariota played one of his best games of the season last week against a solid Dallas defense on the road with the same compromised set of receivers for most of the game. Since Week 2, only Brock Osweiler has failed to throw for multiple scores against the Patriots.
Alex Smith (at Tampa Bay)
Which will collapse first? The terrible Tampa pass defense or the piecemeal Washington offensive line? The Washington defense appears to be vulnerable after Matt Ryan took them apart last week, and Ryan Fitzpatrick will be in attack mode. This should create a game script that forces Smith out of his shell. Only Nick Foles threw for less than two scores against the Bucs this year and he still piled up 334 passing yards in that game. Smith has a high floor as long as his offensive line is functional this week.
Baker Mayfield (vs Atlanta)
Mayfield looked much more comfortable in Freddie Kitchens offense last week, and he faces another generous defense this week. Only Nick Foles failed to post at least 20 fantasy points against them this year, and in the last two weeks even Eli Manning and Alex Smith posted eclipsed 300 yards against the Falcons. The Falcons offense should put up plenty of points to keep Mayfield throwing all day in this contest.
