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.

All times are Eastern

Denver Broncos at New York Jets – Thursday 8:20pm
We got a little more than we expected from this game. It was supposed to be a clown show and while there were circus moments, there were some good plays made too.

Seattle Seahawks at Miami Dolphins – Sunday 1:00pm
Seattle is going to be just fine here. Focus on Russell Wilson and anyone he tends to throw the ball to, you won’t be disappointed. Chris Carson or not, it won’t be a big rushing day for Seattle. There will be two surprises that come out of this game though. First, Ryan Fitzpatrick, if not at the top of the leader board for quarterbacks in Week 4, will be right around it. Play DeVante Parker, Myles Gaskin and Mike Gesicki with some opportunity for Preston Williams and Isaiah Ford too. The second surprise will be the outcome.

Jacksonville Jaguars at Cincinnati Bengals – Sunday 1:00pm
Good week for Joe Burrow on the way. Don’t expect the Joe Mixon train to start to come on here, it will be more of the same unfortunately. Do not neglect your Jaguars, the offense will be balanced and there will be opportunity both in the air and the ground but there won’t be an heroic effort from either. Where Jacksonville struggles is on defense and the unit with the biggest advantage in this will be Cincinnati’s offense, particularly their passing game; play it but also know that rookie mistakes are always lurking when you give Joe Burrow the reigns to your fantasy squad.

Cleveland Browns at Dallas Cowboys – Sunday 1:00pm
Dallas at home will be looking to put a little distance between them and what has turned into a cesspool of a division. Like a hot knife through butter, Dallas’ offense will practically score at will. Play as many pieces of their offense as you can fit. The Dallas defense can be broken down but Baker Mayfield has seemingly picked right back up where he left off in 2019 and that’s not a good thing. For fantasy, Nick Chubb and a hopefully healthy Kareem Hunt will be the better choices but Cleveland will be forced to the air to try and keep up and the game script will get away from them.
