Dak Prescott injury predictions
Dak Prescott is scheduled to have surgery on his right thumb on Monday and is expected to miss 6-8 weeks. (source: Adam Shifter on Twitter)
fantasy effect: While the drop is 6-8 weeks at the moment, a clearer timeline will likely come once the surgery is complete and the recovery process begins. This schedule will keep Prescott out until late October or mid-November, so fantasy directors need to plan accordingly at the QB site. Cooper Rush got into the game on Sunday and is likely to take over until Duck returns.
Replace the descent wires for the target
James Winston (NO): 46% are listed
- The following opponents: TB, CAR, MIN
- Real value: $6
- Urgently needed: $10
- Budget: $2
Analytics: Last week’s QB release top priority remains at the top after a solid first week performance and winning comeback. Winston has been an image of competence in his time with the Saints, slowly but surely wiping his reputation as a sign caller subject to change. I was deeply impressed by his determination on Sunday and his confidence in targeting Michael Thomas On each of his TD passes. as targeted Jarvis Landry Nine times and TE Joan Johnson five times. The upcoming difficult schedule should arouse more attention Alvin Camara And hope the rookie Chris Olaf, who scored a two-point conversion against the Hawks. Saints can win many games with Winston playing well.
Carson Wentz (WSH): 12% are listed
- Upcoming opponents: DET, PHI, DAL
- Real value: $5
- Urgently needed: $8
- Budget: $2
Analytics: On the one hand, Wentz was in QB1 in the first week with 313 passing yards and four TDs. On the other hand, he also threw two interceptions and lost to the Jaguars. Commanders have no shortage of weapons, which bodes well for Wentz. to open Curtis Samuel With 11 goals, he dropped a cent to Terry McLaurin For a long time TD and found a rookie from the first round Jahan Dotson for two degrees. Antonio Gibson It was also easily open for Wentz off the field. Despite all his warts, Wentz could easily win over fantasy managers just by deflecting the ball to his talented receivers. His next two opponents concede an extra 35 points (to each other) in Week 1 which are defenses to attack if you’re broadcasting QBs.
Marcus Mariota (ATL): 9% are listed
- Upcoming competitors: @ LAR, SEA and CLE
- Real value: $4
- Urgently needed: $7
- Budget: $3
Analytics: It was the former Oregon Duck who produced the second most QB dash yards in Week 1, behind Galen Hurts. A mere 40-yard dash equates to extra passes in TD in fantasy football, but Mariota had a tough 72-for-Saints defense on Sunday. It wasn’t impressive at all in a passing game, with a mere 215 yards in the air. Surely he would be expected to do a better job than completing only two out of seven passes to the best receiver, Kyle Bates, to go forward. non-veteran Drake London It looked just as good as his first-round capital project. It might not be wise to air Mariota against the Rams in Week 2, but a fantastic 19.8 points against a strong team in New Orleans with only one TD to smell.
Matt Ryan (India): 43% are on the list
- Upcoming opponents: JAX, KC, TEN
- Real value: $3
- Urgently needed: $5
- Budget: $1
Analytics: The Colts’ game bar isn’t going to be pretty after he barely saved a tie with the humble Houston Texans. Matt Ryan He spent the first three quarters of the game squabbling to move the ball down the court. He still ended up with a 352-yard pass and one touchdown to WR1, Michael Bateman. Ryan is just a second-week streaming option against the Jaguars, who allowed an obscene amount of passing yards to Carson Wentz Sunday. Even then, the ponies don’t imagine they’re in another negative game scenario. The uptrend for Ryan’s pass would be ended if the Colts bounced back and beat Jacksonville.
