What’s going on everybody, welcome to another Wednesday in the NFL season. I don’t really have anything creative or clever to say except for the fact that Rex Burkhead is the GOAT, so on that note, let’s just jump right into it.
*Note*: All projections are based off of standard-scoring points, with the ranking given as the Pigskinonator ranking, not my personal rank.
Players I’m High On
This is a risky call, but I like Mariota this week. First off, I don’t expect for this Pittsburgh defense to be nearly as good this week compared to previous weeks off of a short week, and the bigger reason why I’m high on Mariota is because it is very likely that both CB Joe Haden and S Mike Mitchell will be out of this game, a huge blow to this secondary.
Again, I can’t give out obvious plays, so even though I don’t think Crowell is a great play, I think he is a fine “what the heck” flex option this week against the funnel defense that is the Jaguars. If the Browns want to have any success this week against this Jaguars defense, they’re gonna have to get Duke Johnson and Isaiah Crowell involved in this game.
Players I’m Not High On
I don’t think you should bench Prescott, but just be aware that he could struggle in this matchup. The Eagles will be coming off of a bye and sport one of, if not the best pass rush in the NFL, and if they continue to struggle with injuries on the O-line, Prescott may struggle once more.
Woods has been so good, there is bound to be some regression for him, and against a likely matchup against Xavier Rhodes, he may come back down to earth.
Alright guys, that about does it for me. Good luck to everyone in Week 11, and as always I’ll see you guys tomorrow on the Razzblitz podcast and next Wednesday to do this all over again. If you have any questions, leave one below! Take it easy.
