How to read the table: The table shows how a team will do Passing and Rushing in the upcoming week of the NFL. Red is HOT, Yellow is WARM, White is NORMAL, Light Blue is COLD and Dark Blue is FREEZING COLD. Play players from teams that are Red and Yellow, avoid players from teams that are Light or Dark Blue and expect average days from teams that are White.
|Los Angeles Chargers at Oakland Raiders – Thursday 8:20pm|
We expected a lot more out of Philip Rivers given the soft matchup but did expect the Raiders to upset the Chargers behind the running of Josh Jacobs.

|New York Giants at New York Jets – Sunday 1:00pm|
OK.. so maybe the Giants weren’t the best team to get behind against Dallas last week. Against the Jets though? That is an entirely different matter as the Giants are the visitors in their home stadium. Go figure. In case it isn’t obvious, this is going to be a struggle for both teams to produce fantasy points. You have to play Saquon Barkley and Golden Tate as well as Jamison Crowder but it gets dicey after that.

|Baltimore Ravens at Cincinnati Bengals – Sunday 1:00pm|
Bengals win! Ha ha.. just kidding. Not even A.J. Green wants to play for the Bengals. Can someone please explain to me why Cincinnati didn’t trade him for youth and draft picks instead of getting nothing for him? Aye, aye, aye. Expect Baltimore to roll on the ground as Cincinnati will have no answers for their style of offense. With Andy Dalton benched, there just isn’t much to look forward to on the Cincinnati side. Expect a huge number from the unstoppable Lamar Jackson in this game.

|Buffalo Bills at Cleveland Browns – Sunday 1:00pm|
Cleveland knows that they have to run the ball to give them any kind of a chance of turning things around. Buffalo will want to return the favor by running Devin Singletary repeatedly. Kareem Hunt is expected to be back for this game which will cut into Nick Chubb‘s numbers but it’s very possible that Cleveland now transforms into a dangerous ground and pound team which will make Odell Beckham oh so happy as he turns into a decoy.

|Kansas City Chiefs at Tennessee Titans – Sunday 1:00pm|
Derrick Henry will run well here and with this game in Tennessee, look for them to have a good game-plan against Kansas City as they bottle up their ground game, forcing Patrick Mahomes to do what he does. It will be a grind for Kansas City this week as Tennessee keeps the Kansas City offense off the field with their ground game but for some Mahomes magic to carry the day.
