Trevor Lawrence, QB, Jacksonville Jaguars
Lawrence completed 23 of 33 passes for 273 yards with a touchdown and an interception against the Tennessee Titans on Sunday, along with seven carries for 28 yards and a touchdown on the ground. He has scored a rushing touchdown in two straight games, with 21 carries over the last three.
In Week 6 Lawrence gets a matchup in London against the Miami Dolphins, who have allowed multiple passing touchdowns in four straight games and more than 280 through the air in three of five games this season.
Lawrence has a bye in Week 7. But then the likely game script or the matchup is in his favor right through to Week 16, with the Seattle Seahawks, Buffalo Bills, Indianapolis Colts, San Francisco 49ers, Atlanta Falcons, Los Angeles Rams, the Titans, Houston Texans and New York Jets on the slate.
Lawrence is no Lamar Jackson, but he’s benefitting from designed runs and he’s getting them near the goal line. Be aware of that bye in Week 7 after the London game, but otherwise the No. 1 pick in the 2021 NFL Draft looks like a bankable low-end QB1/high-end QB2 in 12 and 14-team leagues.
