Trust = spike production for that player


Gardner Minshew: Minshew was just QB29 (9.1 points) Sunday against the Falcons.

It was the second-fewest fantasy points he has had in a start this season.

Throwing for just 5.4 yards per pass attempt and zero touchdowns, Minshew has now thrown multiple passing touchdowns in just 4-of-11 starts.

Operating as a QB2 for gamers, Minshew does not run into an objectively strong spot in Week 17 to have a spike week.

The Raiders are allowing 12.5 passing points per game (11th) and 6.7 yards per pass attempt (10th).

Aidan O’Connell: O’Connell started 9-of-11 for 62 yards in the first quarter Monday against the Chiefs.

He then was 0-of-10 passing for the remainder of the game.

O’Connell has one QB1 scoring week and has been the average QB22 over his eight starts this season.

Stuck as a back-end QB2, O’Connell faces an Indianapolis team that is 10th in passing points allowed per game (12.1 points) and ninth in passing points allowed per attempt (0.368).
