Week 9 Offensive Sleepers

A look at the best under the radar plays for Week 9


Drew Lock, DEN (at Atlanta)

Lock had a career-reviving second half against the Chargers. Was it a sign of him turning the corner and getting on the same page as the offensive coaching staff, or just the Chargers adding to their long list of epic collapses? Lock will try to stay hot against a Falcons defense that was one of the most generous to opposing offenses in the league until they shut down Teddy Bridgewater last week. The Broncos could get back Tim Patrick for this one, and Noah Fant is getting healthier, so there’s a chance that Lock could carry over his success.

Tua Tagovailoa, MIA (at Arizona)

How much can we really know about how ready the Dolphins new quarterback is for NFL defenses from Week 8? He was overwhelmed early, leveled off, and then wasn’t really needed to deliver the win. Tagovailoa will have to put the offense on his shoulder with Jordan Howard likely starting at running back and Kyler Murray likely forcing Miami’s offense to score more than Jared Goff did last week. The Cardinals defense is very solvable, allowing three total scores to Teddy Bridgewater and two to Matthew Stafford.
