Each week, the Noise highlights under-started names who he believes are destined to torch the competition. To qualify, each player must be started in fewer than 60% of Yahoo leagues. Speaking as an accountability advocate, I will post results, whether genius or moronic, the following week. Scoring thresholds in .5 PPR format are — QB: 18 fantasy points, RB: 12 fantasy points (10 for shockers), WR: 11 fantasy points, TE: 10 fantasy points.

Uncomfortable and borderline chuckle-triggering cringe. At this point in Wilson’s career, that is what he really thrives at. From “Mr. Unlimited” to the very fleeting Dangerwich, he consistently scores negatively in myriad promotional categories. His social-media annoyances could easily be glossed over if his on-field deliverables excelled, but in his first year in Denver, the opposite is true.
Entering the week, he’s QB27 in fantasy points per game. He’s also outside the top 20 in five different completion percentage categories. Few, if any, have subscribed to his “Let’s Ride!” proclamations. To most, he’s a former roster cornerstone who has crumbled to a point where he’s only roster-worthy for the stream-only crowd. How the mighty have fallen.
The Titans are beatable vertically. This season, they’ve surrendered 7.36 passing yards per attempt, 295.5 passing yards per game, 15 total passing TDs and the third-most fantasy points to QBs. Overall, five signal callers in eight games have generated 20-plus fantasy points against Tennessee.
Hopefully, Wilson is rejuvenated off the bye. Despite his glaring shortcomings, he should be saddled up, especially for Lamar Jackson and Joe Burrow employers looking for a suitable bye-week filler.
Fearless Forecast: 247 passing yards, 2 passing touchdowns, 0 interceptions, 19 rushing yards, 22.3 fantasy points

Here what I’ve learned recently: 1) The spectacularly named Dick Bigger Jr. is a real person, 2) Travis Etienne is a lethal NFL workhorse running back. What hasn’t become apparent yet is Lawrence living up to his No. 1 overall pick status.
Currently anchored in the doldrums at a weak QB position, the second-year Jaguar is a mediocre QB17 in fantasy points per game and ranks QB23 or worse in five different completion percentage categories. He’s become completely unreliable. However, this Sunday against a road foe he’s sure to scoreboard-chase, Lawrence warrants starter consideration in 12-team leagues.
Kansas City has given up only 7.05 passing yards per attempt, but due to opponent volume, the Chiefs have yielded 270.6 passing yards per game, 17 total passing TDs and the eighth-most fantasy points to the position. Lawrence is admittedly a bit of a dice roll, but with his rushing ability — and the Jags being 9.5-point underdogs — throwing Jacksonville’s Afghan hound a biscuit is recommended.
Fearless Forecast: 264 passing yards, 2 touchdown passes, 1 interception, 22 rushing yards, 22.4 fantasy points
Season record: 9-8
Last week: 1-1 (Justin Fields 42.7, Andy Dalton 11.9)
