      Daniel Jones or Minshew for week 15 and 16 fantasy playoffs? Who is your gut feeling? Can only pick one. Standard scoring. Thanks.

      Or Fitzpatrick is also available. This is for a 2-QB league. Thanks.

      For the record, I leave the house at 4 PM on Monday and there are no saving lineup decisions for the Monday night games. I have to do all the projections on Tuesdays along with doing the QB report for Week 14. I can’t answer questions until I do the research.

      Minshew isn’t a lock to start both weeks so Jones. I expect Fitzpatrick to have a tougher time on the road after playing well in his first matchup vs. New York in Miami.

      I understand. Waivers in this particular league go in early. Just needed a little help earlier. I have been with you guys for a good while. Even when you and Adam were with the previous company. If you just let me/us know about the research issues, it would be understood. Thanks for you help this year and the previous years. You guys have always put me in a great position for championships. But do miss Adam as well; you two made a great team!

      I don’t have research issues. I’ve been doing the same routine for four years.

      Rankings on Tuesday >>> QBs research on Tuesday night to be posted on Wednesday.

      RB research on Wednesday for Thursday.

      WR research on Thursday for Friday.

      TE research on Friday that should be updated late on Friday.

      I make adjustments in projections Tuesday through Friday when I look at each of the top players for the daily games. Unfortunately, they aren’t updated on the site until my second update on Friday afternoon (possibly later if there is lingering injury news). Any later changes are don’t manually over the weekend.

      The waiver wire pool in shallow leagues had a player with possible significant upside in his Week 13 matchup. In his first two starts for the Jaguars, Nick Foles gained 588 combined yards with two TDs while completing 65 passes and attempting 95 throws. Tampa ranked at the bottom of the league against both QBs and WRs, setting the stage for Foles to pass for well over 300 yards with multiple TDs. Tampa came in with a game plan to attack him with the pass rush, which led to three sacks and one interception by halftime. Foles finished with only 93 yards passing with no TDs while never returning to the field after his half time shower. Minshew passed for 147 yards and a TD in the second half while also earning the start this week. His best value came in Week 5 (27.90 Fantasy points) and Week 8 (27.75 Fantasy points). Minshew passed over 300 yards in two games while producing over two TDs only once in eight starts. The Chargers are 6th in QB defense (16.71 FPPG), with ten opponents scoring fewer than 20.0 Fantasy points at the QB position. Only a fade for me.

      Last week Fitzpatrick had his best game (365/3) of the year thanks to a great game by DeVante Parker (7/159/2). Over his previous three starts at home, he passed for 976 yards with six TDs and one Int while being a non-factor over his last four road contests passing the ball (855/5). Fitzpatrick did add value away from home on the ground (20/98/3). He passed for 288 yards and three TDs against the Jets in Week 9 in Miami. New York is league average defending QBs (20.56 FPPG) with one team scoring over 30.0 Fantasy points. The Jets should play better at home, leading to regression by Fitzpatrick.

      I’ll go with Minshew this week with each option ranking in a tight area.
