Passing Leader: Lamar Jackson
Eric DeCosta and the Ravens front office added another weapon to star quarterback Lamar Jackson’s arsenal in deep-ball threat DeSean Jackson. Everybody knows that a Jackson to Jackson connection has the opportunity to be lethal, especially against a Browns secondary that’s been nothing but disappointing this season. Coming off a loss in a big game last week, Jackson should have some more motivation to go in and take care of business at home. With an apparent hip injury that limited Jackson in practice this week, we could see him lean more on his arm this week over his legs. Expect 330 yards and three touchdowns from the 2019 MVP.
Rushing Leader: Saquon Barkley
When talking about rebound seasons, Saquon Barkley has to be one of the first names to come up. His work this season has been nothing short of fantastic, and his 2022 campaign in a contract year has put no doubt it anyones mind that he should be locked up. Barkley has been able to exploit any run defense he’s faced, and is facing a run defense that gave up a bunch of yards last week to Deon Jackson. I predict a 105 yard and two touchdown performance from Saquon this week.
Sacks Leader: Quinnen Williams
Quinnen Williams has been leading this Jets defense, and is a key factor to the amount of success they’ve been having. He’s truly taken the leap that we expect all top prospects to sooner or later, and should soon be viewed as a consensus premier linemen. This Sunday, he faces a Broncos offensive line that’s injured and has frankly been struggling, which means he should be able to add at least another *two* sacks to his season resume. It’s another big week for this young Jets team to prove themselves and expect their big time defensive linemen to help them improve to 5-2.
