Biggest Mover UP:

Davis Mills Be BOOMING

This last game saw Mills go off for 302 yards, 68.3% completion percentage, 2 touchdowns, and a quarterback rating of 68.1 (his highest of the season). If Mills can keep this going, with Pierce in the backfield, and Brandin Cooks at the wide receiver spot, Mills can develop further into a franchise-like QB.

Biggest Mover DOWN:

Lamar Jackson TUMBLING

This last week was rough for Jackson–very rough indeed. He threw for only 120 yards, 56% completion percentage, and had a quarterback rating of 47.0 Somehow the Ravens still won this game thanks in part to Gus Edwards. Lamar Jackson is one of the best young quarterbacks in the league, but this last week, “Truzz” was bailed out by Gus Edwards.
