Ryan Fitzpatrick, MIA (at New York Jets) - It’s not crazy to rely on Fitzpatrick in your playoff game. He has accounted for three scores in each of the last two games, DeVante Parker and Mike Gesicki are hot, and the Jets are likely going to be without Jamal Adams. Fitzpatrick has three rushing scores in the last seven games and strung together five straight touchdown drives (minus one halftime kneeldown) last week vs. the Eagles.
Jared Goff, LAR (vs Seattle) - Very simply, Goff has sliced and diced bad defenses and struggled against good ones this year. The Seahawks don’t appear to be a good defense right now minus a few standout front seven performers, and Goff threw for almost 400 against them in the 30-29 shootout the first time these two teams met. The Seahawks still haven’t held the Goff-McVay Rams under 29 points in the last three meetings and the Rams line is getting healthier.
Eli Manning, NYG (at Philadelphia) - Do it! Okay, well in two quarterback/superflex leagues where you don’t have a clear QB2. Or in a fun DFS lineup or two. It is looking like the first week that Sa quon Barkley, Golden Tate, Sterling Shepard, Darius Slayton, and Evan Engram will be on the field together, and the Eagles defense is limping in after the Dolphins leaped over them time after time last week. Manning actually competed very well against the 2017 Eagles and lit them up through the air in both matchups.
Devlin Hodges, PIT (at Arizona) - You’re digging deep if you’re down to Duck, but it could work. The last five quarterbacks to face Arizona have all gone over 300 yards (two over 400) and four of them threw for multiple scores. This defense also gave up four scores to Kyle Allen. Hodges won’t have James Conner or Juju Smith-Schuster, but he looked calm and willing to attack with downfield passes last week and should have time and room to operate on Sunday.
