It’s a holiday week, and I’m scrambling to get everything (football and non-football) done. So let’s skip the BS up top this week. Cool?
QB: Nick Foles, Jaguars (24.1% owned in ESPN leagues)
I jumped a week too early on Foles, but he still finished 15th among fantasy QBs even without tossing a TD pass in that game. And things otherwise went as I’d have hoped.
Jacksonville’s new-old starter threw 48 passes at Tennessee after tossing 47 at Indianapolis in his return game. This week finds him and the Jags hosting 1 of the league’s most unbalanced defenses. Football Outsiders ranks the Buccaneers’ defense #1 against the run and just 25th against the pass.
I’m not letting Matt Ryan’s shockingly poor Week 12 against the Bucs scare me off this high-upside play.
Last week’s pick: Nick Foles (QB15 finish)
