The Top QBs To Start in Week 14

Brock Purdy, San Francisco 49ers (vs. Seahawks)

The MVP favorite in some spots has turned in three top-six finishes in four weeks since the bye. That’s great. The less great part of that stat is the fact that the outlier performance came against the Seahawks in Week 12 (30 passes netted just 209 yards and a single score).

The 7.0 yards per pass in that game is his second-least efficient day of the season, but much like I’m not buying into a single-game sample for Smith, I’m not doing it here for Purdy. He lit up the Seahawks for 330 yards and three scores on 18 completions in the Wild Card win last season, showcasing the type of form that we’ve seen from him recently.

I’m generally of the belief that home/road splits are noisy, but I’m pro-Purdy this week (QB8), so I’m going to casually mention that he’s averaging 31.8% more yards per pass at home than on the road this season.

C.J. Stroud, Houston Texans (at Jets)

The Offensive Rookie of the Year front-runner has thrown for over 270 yards in five straight games, finishing, on average, as the ninth-best fantasy QB over that run.

The cards are stacked against him a bit, though. Tank Dell is now out for the season, and this is a brutal matchup on the road against the second-best pass defense in terms of yards per attempt.

Stroud has been sacked 12 times over his past three games (eight sacks in seven games prior), something that highlights the flaws of this offensive line more than any real concerns I have about Stroud.

Stroud is my QB10 this week. He’s not matchup-proof, but I trust the volume and the talent to still start him in a tough spot. The QB position isn’t as deep as you think it is, and benching Stroud is a difficult sell.
