DFS Roundtable: Quarterbacks to Trust

The DFS team discusses their quarterbacks to trust for Week 16

Which quarterbacks are your favorite targets and fades for Week 16?

Jason Wood

Philip Rivers (Poor Week 15, rebound spot vs. Oakland)
The Chargers were among the league's biggest disappointments this season, and Rivers was a part of that because of poor decision-making. Fortunately, the Raiders are a "get right" defense and Rivers remains hyper-competitive. He'll want to finish the year on a high note and I think he could put up huge numbers this week. He's solidly in my cash and GPP build plans.

Dwayne Haskins (Low-level offense, exploitable Giants matchup)
He's an easy fade. Haskins hasn't played well, even if his statistical output has normalized of late. The matchup is great, sure, but this is a case of two bad teams playing in a meaningless game. You can't trust the game script either way.

Baker Mayfield (3 TDs, 4 INTs over last 3 games, vs. Baltimore)

Another easy fade. What has Mayfield done to instill confidence? There are a ton of great quarterback matchups this week, the only reason to consider Mayfield is that he'll be contrarian. And being contrarian for contrarian's sake is rarely a profitable decision.
