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 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.
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.
