WR Christian Kirk (ARI)
Kirk had a nice breakout game on Monday night, when he netted 22.6 points. Kirk has emerged as a reliable, and explosive target for Kyler Murray. Arizona takes on a subpar Seattle defense, and with disappointing running back play, the Cardinals will look to the air often.
QB Justin Herbert (LAC)
Herbert has lit the league on fire since his first week 2 start. Herbert has at least 260 yards and a touchdown in each of his four starts, and theres no reason that trend should stop on Sunday. Jacksonville has given up at least 350 yards and 30 points in all but one game this year, giving Herbert a golden opportunity this week.
RB D’Andre Swift (DET)
Swift burst onto the scene last week, with 27.3 points. The rookie saw a massive increase in carries, and made the most of them with 116 yards on 14 rushes. Swift faces a mediocre Atlanta defense, and should continue to move up the Lions RB depth chart.
WR Tyler Lockett (SEA)
DK Metcalf has vastly outshined Lockett so far this season, resulting in Lockett’s production diminishing. Since week 3, Lockett has just 14.3 total points. Seattle will face a top 12 pass defense vs Arizona, who’s stifled most offenses pass games. All signs show a subpar week for Lockett, which should keep him on your bench this week.
RB James Robinson (JAX)
Robinson is off to a hot start in his rookie season, however has yet to really tear up a great defense so far. He will face a top-10 rush defense vs the Chargers this week, who won’t be giving him any easy yards. Last time Robinson faced a top-10 defense he got just 10 points, expect a similar performance this week.
WR AJ Brown (TEN)
Brown and the Titans will face arguably the leagues best defense in Pittsburgh this week. Brown was struggling with a knee injury earlier this week, which may play a role in his performance this week. Brown has a tough task ahead of him, and the odds seem to be stacked against a booming performance out of Brown.
