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.
|New York Jets at Baltimore Ravens – Thursday 8:20pm|
We were expecting a blowout.. and we got one.

Prediction: Baltimore Ravens 33 – New York Jets 20
|New England Patriots at Cincinnati Bengals – Sunday 1:00pm|
You didn’t read it here but there’s a real chance that Cincinnati wins this if New England can’t figure out their offense. Here’s gambling that New England fixes some pieces but if they don’t show up again, the result will shock the world. Stick with Tom Brady and Julian Edelman but the rest (from both teams) are nothing but dart throws.

Prediction: New England Patriots 20 – Cincinnati Bengals 14
|Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans – Sunday 1:00pm|
The problem with Houston is that they have too many holes to fill. They most certainly have some of the best options in the league when they pass the ball and that will be on display against a suspect Tennessee secondary but the Houston defense doesn’t have a prayer at slowing down Derrick Henry. Tennessee will also be able to pass the ball well enough to keep the chains moving, making it a productive day for your Titans.

|Denver Broncos at Kansas City Chiefs – Sunday 1:00pm|
Kansas City at home in the thick of a playoff race? You know the drill: Play Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce and the lottery ticket, Tyreek Hill. He may not payoff but if he does, he’ll payoff big. Phillip Lindsay is an acceptable play as Denver will want to try and keep the ball on the ground to keep Mahomes off the field but the rest will struggle against a Chiefs defense that has figured some things out on defense.

Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs 33 – Denver Broncos 23
|Miami Dolphins at New York Giants – Sunday 1:00pm|
This game, perhaps a little oddly, has shootout written all over it. Both passing games should be good here but watch out for the ground games. You have to play Saquon Barkley of course but he’ll get you your numbers in the passing game and not from his rushing totals.
Favorite: New York Giants by 3.5
Prediction: Miami Dolphins 24 – New York Giants 23
|Philadelphia Eagles at Washington Redskins – Sunday 1:00pm|
On paper, Philadelphia has the better talent in key areas and for fantasy, you want to lean more on Philadelphia for your selections. There are injuries galore in Philadelphia so it may just be the Zach Ertz show again but there is a lot of opportunity for a relative noname to show well in this one. I’ve seen a lot of negativity around starting Adrian Peterson this week, I kind of see it but Washington has proven, to me at least, that they really know how to run a football really, really well. Expect a small shocker in this division rival game at home on Redskins turf.

Prediction: Washington Redskins 23 – Philadelphia Eagles 17
