Brock Purdy and Gardner Minshew are two of the most popular quarterbacks this week. Purdy has performed well since taking over for Jimmy Garoppolo, and he has a supporting cast that gives him a great chance to keep that going. He will face the Commanders at home this week. Minshew is taking over for Jalen Hurts, and has a tougher matchup against the Dallas Cowboys, but he has a great supporting cast as well.

With Jonathan Taylor out for the rest of the season, the outlets believe that Colts running backs Zack Moss and Deon Jackson are good pickups for this week. Both of them will need to contribute to fill the void that Taylor leaves.

Seahawks wide receiver Marquise Goodwin is a popular pickup at wide receiver. While the Seahawks might miss out on the playoffs, Geno Smith’s resurgence has made Seattle’s wide receivers viable options in fantasy.

Titans tight end Chigoziem Okonkwo was mentioned last week, as Ryan Tannehill has been throwing to him more as the season has gone on. He has put up double digits in PPR leagues for three straight games, and faces a weak Texans defense this weekend.
