Patrick Mahomes (vs. BAL)
Ben Roethlisberger (@ OAK)
Mahomes still gets Tier 1 status this week, despite a tough matchup against Baltimore. He’s proven to be matchup-proof and even a slight ding to his projections still has him head and shoulders above the rest.
Roethlisberger joins him this week with a fantastic matchup against the Raiders.
I mentioned last week that the Raiders have only allowed one 300-yard passing game all season. This is less about them having a tough secondary and much more about teams not needing to throw much to blow them out.
What the Raiders do allow are passing touchdowns. They have given up a league-high 29 this season, and Big Ben is a near-lock for multiple touchdowns this week with James Conner on the shelf.
