Week 1 QB Performance Shifts Week 2 Model Projections

BetQL’s NFL Model dynamically reacts to on-field performance in addition to dozens of data points

Untitled Image
  • New Orleans Saints QB Jameis Winston went 14-20 for 148 passing yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in a 38-3 rout over the Green Bay Packers in Week 1. As a result, the Saints (-3 consensus) moved from -4.5 to -5.5 (a ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐ value) in BetQL’s model for their Week 2 road matchup against the Carolina Panthers.

  • Houston Texans QB Tyrod Taylor went 21-33 for 291 passing yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a 37-21 Week 1 victory over the Jacksonville Jaguars. As a result, the Texans (+12.5 consensus) moved from +11.5 to +10.5 (a ⭐⭐⭐⭐ value) in BetQL’s model for their Week 2 road game against the Cleveland Browns.

  • The Washington Football Team lost QB Ryan Fitzpatrick for the season, which means Taylor Heinicke will take over in Week 2. He relieved Fitzpatrick in WFT’s 20-16 Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers and went 11-15 for 122 yards and a touchdown, but we’re projecting a regression at the position heading into Week 2 against the Giants at home. As a result, the WFT (-3 consensus) moved from -3.5  to -2.5 in BetQL’s model, thus making the Giants the best bet ATS.

  • Los Angeles Rams QB Matthew Stafford went 20-26 for 321 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions in a 34-14 Week 1 victory over the Chicago Bears. But, did the BetQL Model adjust for LA’s Week 2 road matchup against the Indianapolis Colts? Click the button below to get a Day Pass and find out!

Saints (-3) at Panthers, Sunday 1:00pm EST ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐

Saints QB Jameis Winston went 14-20 for 148 passing yards, five touchdowns and no interceptions in a 38-3 rout over the Packers in Week 1.

Given his past, this was a wildly shocking and efficient outing for the turnover-prone quarterback. 

As a result, the Saints (-3 consensus) moved from -4.5 to -5.5 in BetQL’s model for their Week 2 road matchup against the Panthers. 

The model projects the Saints to win 25.5 to 20 and is projecting another conservative outing from Winston: 17 completions for 190 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

Texans (+12.5) at Browns, Sunday 1:00pm EST ⭐⭐⭐⭐

Texans QB Tyrod Taylor went 21-33 for 291 passing yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions in a 37-21 Week 1 victory over the Jaguars. 

From start to finish, Taylor and the Texans controlled that game and made life tough on their opponents.

As a result, the Texans (+12.5 consensus) moved from +11.5 to +10.5 in BetQL’s model for their Week 2 road game against the Cleveland Browns.

The model is projecting Taylor to put up decent numbers against Cleveland: 17 completions for 270 pass yards, a touchdown and an interception. Assuming Houston will be playing from behind, it wouldn’t be a shock for Taylor to continue to put up solid yardage numbers all season long.

Giants (+3) at Washington Football Team, Thursday 8:20pm EST ⭐

The Washington Football Team lost QB Ryan Fitzpatrick for the season, which means Taylor Heinicke will take over in Week 2. He relieved Fitzpatrick in WFT’s 20-16 Week 1 loss to the Los Angeles Chargers and went 11-15 for 122 yards and a touchdown, but we’re projecting a regression at the position heading into Week 2 against the Giants at home. 

As a result, the WFT (-3 consensus) moved from -3.5  to -2.5 in BetQL’s model, thus making the Giants the best bet ATS. However, it’s only a one-star play.

The model is projecting Heinicke to complete 18 passes for 210 passing yards and a touchdown. It’s worth mentioning that DraftKings is listing his yardage total at 238.5, so BetQL is devaluing him.
