Monday Night Observations
Thank God for the 40-minute edited version.
I had Zach Wilson going in the Steak League because Kyler Murray wasn’t activated and Jared Goff was on bye. He almost salvaged his night too on that last, garbage-time drive, but C.J. Uzomah couldn’t come down with the TD.
I also had Garrett Wilson who miraculously puts up serviceable numbers every week, despite having Wilson as his QB, but the upside is capped. Finally, I had Quentin Johnston in the Primetime (started as a flex over D’Onta Foreman.) I knew it was a risk against the Jets, but Foreman had split carries evenly last week and was in New Orleans against a stout run defense. I figured Johnston had some upside, but then the Chargers got a kick return TD, and the game-flow was toast. They did hand the ball off to him once, showing they want to get him involved at long last, now that Mike Williams and Joshua Palmer are out. The Chargers aren’t going anywhere this year, and they probably never will.
One thing in which I take solace is Justin Herbert’s stat line. Never start your QBs against the Jets because they have a good defense and don’t generate the offense to make your guy do anything.
