Give me all of the Jones shares this week.

Prediction 1: Daniel Jones (29% owned) throws for over 300 yards for 2nd time in his career and finishes as a top five QB

Justification: Currently projected as 17th best QB, he faces Arizona who has allowed the 2nd most points to opposing QBs allowing Matthew Stafford and Matt Ryan to throw for 350+yards and Kyle Allen, Lamar Jackson and Andy Dalton to throw for 260+ yards. In fact Russell Wilson is the only QB who hasn’t had at least 250 yards.

Prediction 2: Tyreek Hill is projected as 2nd best WR, he finishes outside the top 25

Justification: Denver’s secondary is no joke. They have allowed the fewest points to WR only allowing Tyrell Williams 100 yards and only allowing two major players to get a TD.

Prediction 3: Darren Fells (5% owned) is a top 10 TE this week

Justification: Indianapolis is allowing the 3rd most points to TE this season. Last week he got seven targets and six catches for 69 yards. The week before that he had two touchdowns and four weeks ago he had a touchdown. His stock is RIIIIIIIISING.

Prediction 4: Josh Lambo (35% owned) is a top 5 kicker this week

Justification: Currently projected as 15th best kicker, the Bengals will allow him to have quite a few FG and PATs. I’m picking him up where I can this week.

Prediction 5: Los Angeles Chargers vs. Tennessee Titans over/under is 39.5. Give me over at 45 for this matchup

Justification: This is purely gut. Both teams have struggled largely on offense lately and I think we see all of that manifest into an offensive matchup this weekend. By air or land, specifically I think Derrick Henry has a big week and Phillip Rivers has a big week.

Recapping Week 6

Prediction 1: Kyler Murray is a top 3 QB this week

Recap: The only bright spot this week, he went off for 340 passing yards, 3 touchdowns and 32 rushing yards. (Grade A)

Prediction 2: Dalvin Cook rushes for fewer than 80 yards with no touchdowns for the first time this season

Recap: He did have a touchdown by just 41 yards, fewest this season (Grade: B)

Prediction 3: Houston Texans vs. Kansas City Chiefs over under is 54.5. Give me the under at 46.5

Recap: 55 total points so they covered the spread. I was off here (Grade: D)

Prediction 4: DJ Chark finishes as a top 6 WR

Recap: Saaaad Chark doo doo doo do doo – 44th best WR. (Grade: D)

Prediction 5: Miami Dolphins D/ST is top 7 this week

Results: Yeaahhhhh they were the 2nd worst defense with no sacks. No interceptions. No fumble recoveries. No touchdowns. 17 points against. (Grade: D)

2019 YTD Grades:

Grade A: 9
Grade B: 5
