Colts' Jacoby Brissett keeping an eye on J.J. Watt heading into key AFC South Battle in Week 7
Indianapolis Colts quarterback Jacoby Brissett told reporters that J.J. Watt presents a different level of challenge for opposing teams. Brissett said "He's been at the top of the league since he got in the league and hasn't slowed down yet. So, he's definitely a player that you have to keep your eye on and understand where he is on the field at all times."
Brissett is coming off a bye and averaging an impressive 17.9 FanDuel points per game this season. His 11.94 FanDuel point performance against the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5 was more a result of a run-heavy game plan than poor play. In Week 7 he will face a Houston Texans' pass defense rated 12th overall by our power rankings. Our models project Brissett for 17.1 FanDuel points in Week 7.
Brissett's Week 7 projection includes 236.7 yards, 1.53 touchdowns, and .72 interceptions. He is priced at $7,300 and is the QB15 in our weekly rankings.
Jaguars' Gardner Minshew aiming for a fast start against the Bengals in Week 7
Jacksonville Jaguars quarterback Gardner Minshew mentioned how the team prepares for a fast start on offense each week when talking to reporters on Wednesday. Minshew said: "Yeah, I mean we work on it at practice, coming out the gate hot, trying to really push it and I think we'll have the intensity this week to go do it and its something we're actively pursuing."
After a fantastic start to his career, Minshew had his worst performance as a pro against the New Orleans Saints in Week 6. He will look to rebound in Week 7 against a Cincinnati Bengals pass defense rated 26th overall by our power rankings. Minshew may be without his second-option in the passing game, as wide receiver Dede Westbrook is questionable with a shoulder injury. Our models project Minshew for 17.6 FanDuel points in Week 7.
Minshew's Week 7 projection includes 251.1 yards, 1.58 touchdowns, and .72 interceptions. He is priced at $6,900 and is the QB13 in our weekly rankings.
49ers' Jimmy Garoppolo praises his offensive line as they prepare to face the Redskins in Week 7
San Francisco 49ers quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo complimented his offensive line when talking to reporters on Wednesday. Garoppolo said "I thought the two rookies did a great job stepping in and filling their roles and those guys are just battling upfront. What they do in the run game and pass game is so impressive."
Garoppolo has only scored above 15 FanDuel points once this season as the offense leans heavily on an effective run game. In Week 7 he will have a good chance to reach the 15 point mark for a second time against a Redskins pass defense rated 29th overall by our power rankings. The Redskins are rated 30th overall in total defense by our rankings and the 49ers should be able to move the ball however they choose on Sunday. Our models project Garoppolo for 16 FanDuel points in Week 7.
Garoppolo's Week 7 projection includes 239.7 yards, 1.51 touchdowns, and .71 interceptions. He is priced at $7,500 and is the QB16 in our weekly rankings.
Eagles' Carson Wentz feels he's processing things quicker ahead of Week 7 clash with the Cowboys
Philadelphia Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz told Eagles' Color Commentator Mike Quick that "I feel like I'm just processing things a lot quicker and just being able to find completions when its there instead of always having to force the shot, and I just feel like I'm seeing things pretty clearly out there" when asked about his familiarity with the offense on Wednesday.
Wentz's 21.54 FanDuel points he scored in Week 6 were the most he's produced since a Week 1 meeting with the Washington Redskins. On Sunday night Wentz will face a Cowboys pass defense rated 30th overall by our power rankings in a crucial NFC East showdown. Our models project Wentz for 17.5 FanDuel points in Week 7 and he is the QB14 in our weekly rankings.
Wentz's Week 7 projection includes 254.4 yards, 1.74 touchdowns, and .72 interceptions. He is priced at $7,500 on the Sunday-Monday slate.
Giants' Daniel Jones focused on the team heading into Week 7 showdown with Kyler Murray and the Cardinals
Daniel Jones told reporters on Wednesday that "my focus is on trying to help the team win the game, I think that's the biggest part. It's about being prepared as a team, it's about making sure I'm doing my part in that preparation and I'm ready to play as well as I can" when asked about his mindset when facing Kyler Murray.
Jones reiterated that his focus was on the team and not on how he compares with Kyler Murray, the only quarterback taken above him in this year's NFL draft. Jones has cooled off after his hot start against the Buccaneers in Week 3, but he is set up for success this Sunday facing a Cardinals pass defense rated 28th overall by our power rankings. Our models project Jones for 19 FanDuel points against the Cardinals and he is the QB12 in our weekly rankings.
Jones' Week 7 projection includes 267 yards, 1.94 touchdowns, and 1.15 interceptions. He is priced at $7,200.
Philadelphia's DeSean Jackson (abdomen) will not play in Week 7's game against Dallas
Philadelphia Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson (abdomen) is ruled out for Sunday's night game against the Dallas Cowboys.
Jackson will miss his fifth straight game after suffering an abdomen injury in Week 2. Alshon Jeffery should play an important role against the Cowboys as Philly's lead receiver.
Our models project Jeffery to haul in 4.9 receptions for 59.8 yards on 8.6 targets.
