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.
|Indianapolis Colts at Tennessee Titans – Thursday 8:20pm|
Indianapolis is no joke but we expected more out of Tennessee. I start the week.. 0-1. Though the game did go as expected, with a good passing performance by Indianapolis and a stout running game by Tennessee with a lot of struggles for Ryan Tannehill. The fantasy side worked out well, the final score did not.

|Houston Texans at Cleveland Browns – Sunday 1:00pm|
Nick Chubb is coming back just in time as he and Kareem Hunt will make healthy fantasy starts this week against a porous Houston run defense. Houston however will make it a game as Deshaun Watson will be throwing bullets all over the field as Houston will score big in the air. Be warned that this is not the week to play Duke Johnson unless he gets a lot of looks in the passing game, which he may. Expect Cleveland to keep the passing short as they know that this game will come down to which team best controls the turnovers and they are going to try to go out of their way to minimize mistakes by Baker Mayfield.

|Cincinnati Bengals at Pittsburgh Steelers – Sunday 1:00pm|
Welcome to the NFL Joe Burrow, and welcome to the division. Things do not get any easier in what should be a cake-walk for Pittsburgh. Ground your Bengals and play your Steelers, there’s not much more to it than that.

|Philadelphia Eagles at New York Giants – Sunday 1:00pm|
I’ve been saying from the very beginning (once Dak Prescott went down) that it’s Philadelphia that will be on top of the NFC East when it’s all said and done. As it stands today, they are, and hold the best point differential (-19) in the division. They will be getting back a lot of missing pieces to their offense this week and next. Thanks to it, expect Philadelphia to start their rise. Be leery of the New York passing game in this game.. you’ve been warned.

|Washington Football Team at Detroit Lions – Sunday 1:00pm|
Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissick will be the two best performing players on the field, the rest however, will falter, though it won’t take more than a touchdown to push D’Andre Swift into fantasy starter material — he’ll need that touchdown though.
