THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Division Weekend

RB Aaron Jones and QB Aaron Rodgers Green Bay Packers

I know many that are skeptical of Green Bay but they shouldn't be. Seattle just isn't the same team without Chris Carson and while Russell Wilson is most certainly a dangerous foe, Green Bay will be able to run all day on Seattle which will keep Wilson on the bench, right where he can't do much damage.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Wildcard Weekend

RB Jordan Howard PHI

Welcome my fantasy brethren to another edition of The Prognosticator, may it cause you pause. The playoffs are here and are we as excited as ever for what should be an action filled fun run through the NFL post season ...

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 17

MISC_New_Orleans_NOS_1

Welcome my fantasy brethren to another edition of The Prognosticator, may it end on a high note. Good luck to all those playing this week with something on the line. Thanks for joining us here at Fantasy Sharks this year and we hope to see you through the playoffs.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 16

QB_Dak_Prescott_DAL_1

Philadelphia at home with a potent passing game that while not as good as Dallas' can still compete. Dallas evens everything up with Dak Prescott, his receivers, and a soft Philadelphia secondary. Expect overtime and expect drama.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 15

WR Kenny Golladay DET

Detroit have been the walking wounded all year long and this week is no different. You obviously want to play Kenny Golladay since he is the last man standing and wins "Survivor Mo-Town 2019".

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 14

QB Lamar Jackson BAL

Buffalo at home, may just have the horses to get this done but until Lamar Jackson stumbles and falls, ride Baltimore while the riding is good. Two great ground games go at it here; coming down to special teams and quarterback play to determine the outcome.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 13

Thanksgiving Game Cleveland Browns

It's Battle Royale II but this time it's in Pittsburgh. Cleveland is still reeling from the players they lost in the last fracas and this is going to turn into another very physical game with a lot of penalty flags being thrown. Expect both coaches to fan the flames in an effort to keep their teams motivated.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 12

RB Phillip Lindsay DEN

The mismatch this day will be when Denver runs the ball as Phillip Lindsay carves through Buffalo with his elusiveness. Be leery of the rest in fantasy as they'll all chip in to some degree but won't stand out this week.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 11

WR DeVante Parker MIA

Now that Miami is playing football again (a tip of the cap to those players for refusing to fold) this will be a surprisingly difficult game for Buffalo. While most would say Buffalo is the better team, in reality, in Miami, these two teams are evenly matched.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 10

RB_Ezekiel_Elliott_DAL_2

While I was unflattering toward Dallas last week, I'm changing my tune a little this week as they are home and against Minnesota, both teams will be surprisingly fluid on offense. This is one of the games that you want to take a close look at for your fantasy starters as both teams will run well on the ground and will throw the ball well too.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 9

Taylon Smith DAL tackles Saquon Barkley NYG

This is what folks aren't understanding about Dallas: they're not that good. They're a team that doesn't play well together but as individuals they excel. It's why they make such great fantasy players, they're all about individual stats and it's also why they lose, because they don't play as a team.

SPREADING CHEDDAR: The One Stop Gambling Shop – Week 9

Helmet_Carolina_Panthers_1

The Panthers received a monstrous wake up call in San Francisco last week as they got run over by Tevin Coleman. The good news is that the Panthers have a knack for bouncing back after big losses, especially when they travel back home. The Panthers have covered the spread in 13 of their last 14 home games following a road loss.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 8

WR_Robby_Anderson_NYJ_1

The unraveling by the Jets at the hands of New England was well.. telling. Then the news that Robby Anderson is on the block for draft picks and an even deeper rumor that Sam Darnold can be had in deal.. that's not a recipe for success. Now they travel to Jacksonville to try and slow down Leonard Fournette? Good luck with that.

SPREADING CHEDDAR: The One Stop Gambling Shop – Week 7

Jacksonville_Jaguars_Helmet_1

There is a massive mismatch between the Jaguars defensive line and the Bengals offensive line that will cause a lot of grief for Cincinnati. Joe Mixon can’t do it all alone and with Marcus Mariota out of the picture, Andy Dalton and company are now closing in on Jameis Winston for the title of most sacked quarterback.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 7

HC_Bill_Belichick_NEP_1

There is nothing like a Jets game to fire up Bill Belichick. He has a long history with the Jets and there's something extra special in it when he comes out victorious. While New York showed flashes last week against Dallas with Sam Darnold back, the New England Patriots are an entirely different matter.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 5

RB Dalvin Cook MIN

The Giants will put a scare into Minnesota here and will play fairly well both in the air and on the ground but it's Minnesota's game to lose behind Dalvin Cook who should slash the Giants for copious gains.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 4

RB Marlon Mack IND

I think most are onto Indianapolis this week and know that there is a lot more going on here than "folding up the tents and going home" after the Andrew Luck retirement. Those that discounted and discredited the Colts may be in for a little bit of a surprise.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 3

QB Kyler Murray Oklahoma

Carolina is already in desperation mode for a win and if by some miracle Kyle Allen rallies his team for a win, he may never look back. It was Kyle Allen that beat out Kyler Murray at Texas A&M for the quarterback job before Murray transferred to Oklahoma.

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 2

WR_Julio_Jones_11_ATL_1

Atlanta is at home and an underdog? Say what now? If you want to overreact to Week 1 then sure, that makes sense, but if you understand that Atlanta has one of the very best passing attacks in the league and will be able to throw all over their stadium for chunks of yardage, then you know how silly that line is.
