QB SIT: Trevor Siemian, New Orleans Saints vs. Buffalo Bills

Man, it’s tough to sit Siemian down after what was his best statistical game of the season. Now, it was a lot of garbage points in Week 11, but the Saints QB threw for three touchdowns and rushed for a fourth. There are some encouraging things happening, like Tre’Quan Smith becoming a highly targeted receiver, Mark Ingram finding the fountain of youth, and Adam Trautman finally showing some of his potential.

However, the Buffalo defense does not give up many fantasy points to opposing quarterbacks. Last week we saw more flaws developing in their run defense, with four backs scoring over 16.0 points against them. Quarterbacks though, typically struggle to score 14.0 points against the Bills, when you’re usually looking for at least 20.0. Don’t mistake one weakness in a defense as the blanket assessment of the unit as a whole.

QB SIT: Dak Prescott, Dallas Cowboys vs. Las Vegas Raiders

Hand it to the Chiefs, they stymied the Cowboys Sunday. Already missing Amari Cooper, the team lost CeeDee Lamb to a concussion. So Dak Prescott was plagued by passes intended to Cedric Wilson who had a bad case of the dropsies. The turnaround might be too quick to piece it back together since Cooper is out and Lamb is probably not going to be able to clear protocol in four days.

That leaves Michael Gallup, Wilson, Dalton Schultz and Dallas’ two running backs to pull this team through. While the Raiders are not playing defense like the Chiefs, it’s hard to manufacture the kind of production and defensive respect that Lamb and Cooper bring. This could be a very Zeke-heavy game. I wouldn’t recommend a full blown sit for Prescott, but to expect anything above 20 points would be a miracle if he doesn’t have his two star receivers.
