Ryan Heath’s QB Rankings
- Jimmy Garoppolo is a welcome high-floor streamer in a week where many mainstays at the position are suffering from difficult matchups. If the Chargers can push the 49ers into playing a little aggressively, the 4th-ranked quarterback in EPA/play will be throwing to four of the NFL’s premier big-play threats in an environment where he is favored by a touchdown at home. The 49ers have actually become slightly more pass-heavy (1% PROE vs. -6%) since Christian McCaffrey joined the team, especially throwing much more on 2nd down.
- Trevor Lawrence has been up-and-down this season, but a shootout with the Chiefs may be just what he needs for a ceiling game. He has also reached four or more rushing attempts in four of his last five games.
- Jacoby Brissett gets a Dolphins defense allowing the second-most points to opposing quarterbacks over the last month. You can play him over the likes of Russell Wilson and Aaron Rodgers, who face tougher matchups with significantly lower implied totals. Brissett ranks 9th in EPA per play.
