Wentz or Mahomes

Playoff matchup.

Mahomes @ NE and Wentz @ NYG on Monday.

My model projects Mahomes to be the QB26 this week and Wentz to be the QB9. However, the Pats D has shown it’s more vulnerable to mobile, superstar QBs than season-long numbers would indicate, and there could be weather concerns with Wentz. Given those mitigating factors, it’s close for me. In this case I would go to The Ballers rankings for a secondary data point, and they have Wentz as the QB3 and Mahomes as the QB6. So despite the mitigating issues, I would stick with Wentz here.

Note that Mahomes looks like the slightly better play right now for Weeks 15 & 16, so if I could only roster one, I would go ahead and take my chances with him. But if it’s just a call for this week, I’d go Wentz.

My Week 14 QB model is below for reference. Hope that helps. Good luck!
