The former Sooner has racked up an astonishing 674 total yards, five total TD’s and 57.1 fantasy points in just two games. I can’t believe I’m about to use this word to describe a rookie QB making his third career start (in the championship round no less) but Hurts is UNSITTABLE this week against a Dallas defense that has surrendered 30 TD passes this year (second-most). If he’s on the waiver-wire, I’d encourage you to grab him ASAP. He’s ranked firmly inside my top-ten this week.
Others to consider: Tom Brady (TB) - @DET, Baker Mayfield (CLE) - @NYJ, Tua Tagovailoa (MIA) - @LV
Sit of the Week: Russell Wilson vs Los Angeles Rams
Feels like a risky move, especially in the championship. I get it. But you have to be worried given the matchup (Rams allow the fewest fantasy points as well as passing yards to QB's this season, and have more INT's, 15, than TD passes allowed, 13) and his recent track record of fantasy points (less than 16.0 points in four of his last six games... Including a season-low 9.9 points the last time he played the Rams in week ten). I don't expect Wilson has an awful game here, but it certainly feels like there are better options out there this week. All things considered, him beating his ESPN projection of 18.5 points by a significant margin seems unlikely.
Others to consider: Cam Newton (NE) - BUF, Ben Roethlisberger (PIT) - IND, Derek Carr (LV) - MIA
