Wednesday AM Injury update:
Jared Goff continues to get some throws in to test his surgically repaired thumb, but Sean McVay says he won’t name a starter until game-time.
Alex Smith and Taylor Heinecke may both see time against the Buccaneers this week. Coach Rivera doesn’t seem sold on Smith at his current health.
There are plenty of good quarterbacks in the Wild Card round, but Lamar Jackson, Josh Allen and Tom Brady are all playing at a high level at the moment. This week, Lamar Jackson gets the best matchup against a Titans team that has allowed the fourth-most fantasy points to quarterbacks while the Indianapolis Colts have allowed the 11th-fewest and Washington the fourth-fewest. But, over the second half of the season the Colts have allowed the ninth-most fantasy points, while the other two defenses have stayed relatively the same.
Josh Allen has been so good of late and faces a Colts defense that has been beaten of late, that he’s my No. 1 quarterback this week. He’s also the No. 1 fantasy quarterback this season and has shown that is no fluke. The Colts will likely try to slow the game down and win with their run game, but Allen also has John Brown back and has played too well to drop in the rankings.
Brady has thrown for 1,137 yards and 10 touchdowns to one interception in his last three games. Those were pretty easy matchups, but there is no doubt that the offense is clicking right now. Washington and Chase Young will be a test, but the Bucs offensive line has been a strength this season.
