The Dolphins passing game has taken us to the promised land multiple times this season. This week, they face a 49ers defense that is tops in the league against the run and has only faced one true test from a high-end passing game, the Chiefs, which they failed miserably as they surrendered 423 passing yards and 44 total points. The Dolphins appear to be going overlooked due to some games/teams with higher implied totals, but the explosiveness and concentration of their passing attack can’t be understated. Tyreek Hill might be the highest floor/ceiling play on the slate this week and Tua Tagovailoa and Jaylen Waddle are also primed for success.
After a big performance in a nationally televised game against the Chiefs, Josh Palmer was a very popular pick last week with Mike Williams sidelined with an ankle injury. The Chargers offense did well but Palmer was unspectacular, posting only five receptions for 56 yards on seven targets. This week, Palmer is in a better matchup at basically the same price yet is likely to see about a third of the ownership he had last week. I think he is primed for a big game against the league’s worst pass defense in a spot where the Chargers are likely to continue throwing at the highest rate in the league.
