After posting his second game of more interceptions than touchdowns in Week 10, Dalton has tossed five touchdowns to just one pick in last last two games. Dalton has emerged this season as a top-flight quarterback, with eight games with multiple touchdowns and six games with at least three total scores. For the season, Dalton ranks among the top eight quarterbacks in the league in passing yards, touchdowns and quarterback rating.
The 2015 first overall pick came nowhere close to replicating the extraordinary success he enjoyed in a Week 11 blowout of the Eagles, and finished the contest with a mediocre 51.3 quarterback rating. Winston also threw an interception for the second time in three weeks after previously having enjoyed a four-game stretch without a pick. He did also manage a career-high 27 yards on the ground. Winston and the Bucs face off with the Falcons in a home tilt in Week 13.
In a less than ideal situation or environment, Roethlisberger threw for over 300 yards for the sixth time in eight games, although he'll have to pass the concussion protocol this week. If he's able to play next week, he's got a decent matchup against Indianapolis, but faces the Bengals in Week 14 and the Broncos in Week 15. After that, the Steelers finish the season against a pair of soft pass defenses in the Ravens and Browns.
Wilson was coming off his most productive game of the season, but was even better Sunday against a hard-hitting Steelers' defense, capping his huge fantasy day with an 80-yard touchdown to Doug Baldwin at 2:01 of the fourth quarter. On a negative note, Wilson lost one of his top targets, as TE Jimmy Graham suffered a knee injury, and had to be carted off the field. In somewhat of a disappointing fantasy campaign, Wilson threw for over 300 yards for the first time this season. It will probably be tough for him to duplicate his five-touchdown explosion next week at Minnesota, although things look good for his owners during the fantasy playoffs, as the fourth-year QB will face Baltimore in Week 14 and Cleveland in Week 15.
Well, there was a reason the Rams tried going in another direction last week. Pushed back into the starting lineup due to Case Keenum's concussion, Foles was held touchdown-less for the fourth time in five games and recorded his second multi-interception game of the season. He ranks 27th in the league in passing yards and 30th in touchdowns on the year, making him one of just a handful of quarterbacks with next-to-no fantasy value. It would not be a shock if he finds himself behind Keenum again once the latter is healthy enough to play.
Gabbert kept the 49ers in the game against a tough opponent, but was unable to lead a comeback in the end, completing a 19-yard pass in Cardinals' territory on 4th-and-20 late in the game. He has been surprisingly competent since taking over as the 49ers' starting QB in Week 9, and he's got a favorable matchup at Chicago next week, although the Bears' defense has played much better as of late.
Palmer had been on fire as of late, throwing for over 300 yards in his previous three games, with a 11:4 TD:INT ratio during that span, but surprisingly struggled Sunday in a favorable matchup. In fact, it was the first time all season that Palmer failed to throw at least one touchdown pass. Even with Sunday's fantasy dud, he's just five touchdowns away from reaching his previous season high of 32 passing scores (set back in 2005 while with Cincinnati), and he'll attempt to get closer to that mark in St. Louis next week.
Mariota's line outside the three touchdowns was very ugly, but the rookie's struggles are nothing new. He has topped 250 yards passing just once in his last six appearances, and also took a step back with his legs after topping 20 yards on the ground in each of the last two games. Mariota completed just six of the 20 passes he threw to wide receivers, and it's going to be hard to trust him until he demonstrates the ability to hit outside throws.
Cousins had multiple interceptions in four of Washington's first six games this season, but has been picked off just twice in the five games since. He has posted his only two multi-touchdown games of the season during that same five-game stretch. Though he has been more careful with the football as of late, Cousins has not emerged as a big enough producer in the passing game to warrant much attention in fantasy circles. His abilities as a runner are noteworthy, though, as his three rushing scores this season are tied for the team lead and trail only Cam Newton and Jameis Winston among quarterbacks this season.
Carr sports an excellent 24-to-6 touchdown to interception ratio, and has done a good job taking care of the ball even while factoring in his three lost fumbles this season. The sophomore quarterback overcame a forgettable game from usually-reliable receiver Michael Crabtree by featuring Seth Roberts and Amari Cooper, and Carr's ability to get different receivers involved is just the latest demonstration of his increased maturity as a passer.
