Nick Foles, JAX (vs Tampa Bay) - Foles is two steps out on the plank going into the matchup with the Bucs, and there might not be room for another. The hope is that Foles, who seems to play his best with his back against the wall, will perk up against a very beatable Bucs pass defense. Even if Jacksonville wants to use a lot of Leonard Fournette, the Bucs stiff run defense will funnel the Jaguars offense to pass more, which will at least give Foles the chance to hit this week.
Carson Wentz, PHI (at Miami) - Only Brian Hoyer and Sam Darnold failed to post multiple scores against Miami, and their teams lost. Unless you think the Eagles are going down to Miami to lose, Wentz is a solid play this week despite his recent slump. Three quarterbacks have scored on the ground against the Dolphins, and the last two have at least three total scores.
Ryan Fitzpatrick, MIA (vs Philadelphia) - Fitzpatrick has accounted for multiple scores in four of his last six starts. In the two that he didn’t he posted a rushing score in one and a 300 yard passing game in the other. He has also scored on the ground in three of his last six starts and thrown for multiple scores in three of his last six starts. There a lot of paths to production for Fitzpatrick in a game that should see him play from behind against a defense that encourages opponents to pass.
Jared Goff, LAR (at Arizona) - Goff went ofer November in the passing touchdowns column, but he should get right against a Cardinals pass defense that has allowed more than half of the quarterbacks they have faced to throw for three or more touchdowns. Goff has been reliable in good matchups this year, with 517 passing yards and two scores against Tampa, 395 yards and a score against Seattle, 268 passing yards, two passing scores and one on the ground against Atlanta, and 372 passing yards and two scores against Cincinnati.
