Trust = spike production for that player


Lamar Jackson (TRUST): After a three-game slide as QB17 or lower, Jackson bounced back last Thursday as the QB4 (23.9 points).

Jackson averaged 10.2 yards per pass attempt, his second-best rate in a game this season.

He should find little resistance in keeping things going here against a Chargers defense we have picked on all season. And one that just lost Joey Bosa.

The Chargers have allowed a league-high 8.1 yards per pass attempt and 11.9 yards per completed pass (29th).

The Chargers are allowing 17.9 passing points per game, 30th in the league.

They are coming off allowing 322 passing yards and a QB9 (20.9 points) week to Jordan Love, the sixth top-10 scoring week they have allowed this season.
