Terry McLaurin– Higher than 59.5 receiving yards

McLaurin has topped this number twice this season and should be in line for a larger target share with Josh Dotson likely out and Curtis Samuel questionable. Though Samuel has led the team in targets, make no mistake that McLaurin is the true number 1 receiver on this team. He also sees more air yards so he could hit this number on 1 or 2 catches if needed. Given the struggles the Titans’ young corners have had this season, I like McLaurin to top this easily.

Derrick Henry– Higher than 85.5 rushing yards

85.5 is typically a number that should scare people, but Henry is the type of back that this high projection feels very gettable. In the 3 non-blowout games this season, Henry has had 20 or more carries and 80+ yards. He is unquestionably the Titans’ main offensive weapon, and could even need to rely upon more this week given the injuries to Tennessee’s receivers. Washington’s defense has been better versus the run the past two weeks, but there are clear issues that can be exploited.

Breece Hall– Higher than 11.75 fantasy points

Hall has taken on a larger and larger role in this Jets offense and looks like he is taking on a number 1 role. Hall has at least 60 combined yards in every game and has 88 and 92 in the last 2 games. Add in that he is averaging about 7 targets a game, he has a good chance of hitting this fantasy points number even without a TD. The Dolphins defense has struggled against the run and against backs catching the ball this season. Hall has multiple avenues to his this number, making this a very safe play.

Jared Goff– Higher than 235.5 passing yards

Goff has topped 250 yards each of the last three weeks and he’s averaging almost 38 attempts a game. New England’s defense has not been good against the pass this season, and Goff should be able to pick them apart. There is a chance that the Patriots offense struggles so much that it leaves short fields and a lopsided score which prevents Goff from ramping up his numbers. Even in that scenario 236 yards is very attainable. Given how bad Detroit’s defense has struggled, it’s likely New England will be able to move the ball and create points to force Goff to keep throwing.
