Week 1 of the NFL season brought on a lot of high-end quarterback play. This play was headlined by Lamar Jackson and Dak Prescott posting a perfect passer rating of 158.3 in their season debut. Can we identify these players before they have their breakout performances?
Brady is facing the worst team in the NFL in Miami as an 18.5 point favorite on the road. Will the Patriots eventually take their foot off of the gas? Maybe, but I think that Brady will get his stats well before they pull back the reins on this offense.
Although Antonio Brown was involved in yet another story breaking on Tuesday night, I do expect him to play in this game, making this Patriots offense even scarier than the team that just put up 33 on the Pittsburgh Steelers with ease on Sunday night.
On Sunday afternoon, I expect to see Tom leave this game with over 300 yards passing and 3 TDs. This stat line will likely hit the overs on his passing props and makes him a nice option in the daily fantasy realm, where I don’t expect people to really focus on him.
Dak had the best game of his career in his first game this season and I really expect this offense to continue rolling with their new offensive play-caller, Kellen Moore. Moore was in a high-octane offense at Boise State before going to the NFL and I expect Moore to implement a lot of new offensive concepts into this Cowboys offense.
In his first week, Dak and the Cowboys called the most play-action passes per overall plays and they were incredibly efficient on these plays. Play-action is the most underutilized concept in the NFL and generally works regardless of the running game supporting it.
With Zeke in the backfield, defenses already key on the Cowboys run game. Play-action should allow Dak the massive passing lanes that we saw him take advantage of in week 1.
Mahomes is an easy choice against the Raiders this week just after dominating one of the most talented defenses in the NFL. Even though Mahomes is without his top receiver, I expect him to have another big game here.
The Chiefs are loaded with offensive talent and I think that they Tyreek Hill injury will not provide a huge issue in their first full game without him. I expect Sammy Watkins and Travis Kelce to really shoulder the load this week.
The Raiders were solid vs. Mahomes last year, but I expect the Raiders to struggle without their starting safety Abrams and potentially without Gareon Conley after his injury suffered on Monday night.
When the Chiefs traveled to Oakland last season, Derek Carr had 285 yards and three passing touchdowns in that game. Another performance like that would make him a very viable option in any fantasy football league or even when looking at his prop bets.
Carr looked good on Monday night and I think that the Chiefs defense is still very capable of giving up yardage and completions, as they showed last week. I expect Carr to play well and even flirt with 300 yards passing in the game.
Towards the end of last season, Brees suffered a shoulder injury that made me really question his ability to throw the ball downfield on time and accurately. On Monday night, Brees looked to be back to his old ways, even though he did not have to air the ball out much at all.
If Brees is back and healthy, I think that he could tear apart this Rams defense that took advantage of his hindrance in the playoffs last season. The Rams defense looked pretty bad in Carolina last week and I think that Cam Newton left a lot of throws on the field that Drew Brees will not. I expect Brees to have an eye-popping performance on Sunday afternoon.
