- We're coming off one of the worst biweeks that anyone can remember, with six teams off in week seven. And we're coming into a biweek that's kind of normal. Only two teams will be out of the mix. But no Lamar Jackson. That's a small concern. So we are looking at quarterback options for week eight.

Let's talk about Daniel Jones. He was fun on Sunday. It wasn't necessarily a high-scoring fantasy day, but 203 passing yards, one touchdown, 28 rushing yards, and he caught a ball that might just be the catch of the day. It was sensational. He had to do a little bit of everything because the Giants were without Saquon Barkley and Kenny Golladay and Kadarius Toney and Sterling Shepard. That's arguably their four best pass-catching weapons. Jones still terrific.

And look at his matchup next week. It's the Kansas City Chiefs on Monday night. We love to see the Chiefs on the schedule. They were absolutely stomped by Tennessee on Sunday. They entered the week allowing 6.7 yards per play on the season. That ranked dead last in the league. So it is a very friendly matchup, and I expect Daniel Jones to produce in a pretty big way, especially if he could just get a couple of these weapons back.
