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 Kansas City Chiefs – Thursday 8:20pm|
This game has been played at the time of this writing. The Progno expected a good game and a high total but fell on the wrong side of this one. What an epic comeback by the Chargers.
Favorite: Kansas City Chiefs by 3.5
Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs 31 – Los Angeles Chargers 27
|Houston Texans at New York Jets – Saturday 4:30pm|
New York can hang around in this one because they’ll find openings with their passing game but overall, Houston is the better team and will be able to run Lamar Miller until the cows come home.

Prediction: Houston Texans 27 – New York Jets 23
|Cleveland Browns at Denver Broncos – Saturday 8:20pm|
There are two offenses this week that aren’t getting as much love as they should. The first is the Browns who self-admittedly are a tricky read because Baker Mayfield has about the same chance of being the highest scoring fantasy quarterback of the week as he does being the lowest. If you have Mayfield and your other quarterback choice is the least bit unsettling, roll the bones and try Mayfield as your starter. Sometimes, you have to take chances. Play all that you own in the Cleveland passing game in fact, they make for a sneaky play this week. Denver will run the ball because they have been doing that well lately and they will continue to here with Phillip Lindsay.

|Detroit Lions at Buffalo Bills – Sunday 1:00pm|
When I put the game on the scale there’s just no way I can say that Detroit is the better team and on the road in Buffalo? That’s just an uphill climb both ways for the Lions. Do not get cute by playing any of your Lions, this isn’t a good spot for them but the Buffalo offense will play well in this one and there will be some fantasy surprises as Buffalo should be able to run the ball which opens up so many more options for them.
