Week 7 Streaming Picks

By Matt Schauf 12:10pm EDT 10/16/19

Lots of QBs outscored my Week 6 selection: Gardner Minshew. So what gives? Am I just an idiot?

(Well, if I am … would I realize it?)

I think my biggest problem was underestimating the Saints’ defense. As we get into the season, it can be tough to gauge what matters most in the matchup numbers. Despite a couple of good outings, New Orleans still entered last week as a positive scoring matchup for QBs.

Even this week, the Saints arrive as a neutral matchup overall. But they’ve allowed the 7th-fewest QB points per game over the past 3 weeks. That includes season-worst scores from Dak Prescott and Minshew, plus Jameis Winston’s 2nd-lowest yardage total of the year (and a stat line inflated by a worthless TD on the final play).

I get the message, Saints. Respect. And although I’ll never be perfect at appropriately recognizing trends, I’ll keep trying.
