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

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Chicago Bears – Thursday 8:20pm
We expected more from Tampa Bay last night. Chicago’s defense is a tough one to play against but it seemed that the Tampa offense should have still been able to move the ball better than they did.

 

Favorite: Tampa Bay Buccaneers by 5.5
Prediction: Tampa Bay Buccaneers 30 – Chicago Bears 23

Arizona Cardinals at New York Jets – Sunday 1:00pm
It sounds like Le’Veon Bell may be back for this one and he’ll do well if he plays the entire game. The surprise though comes from Arizona’s ground game and Chase Edmonds.

Buffalo Bills at Tennessee Titans – Tuesday 7:00pm
This was has tentatively moved to Tuesday night. Let me just say, what a mess it will be for fantasy league management companies who have automated processes that don’t expect the week to be continuing into Tuesday. It’s really hard not to like both teams in this in all aspects of their games. Expect both offenses to be able to move the ball both on the ground and in the air and for this to be a sneaky source of some big fantasy totals.

Philadelphia Eagles at Pittsburgh Steelers – Sunday 1:00pm
This one is a bit lopsided and Philadelphia really doesn’t have a lot going for them right now. The one and only advantage the Eagles have is that they can intercept Roethlisberger, can cause fumbles and will get to Big Ben a lot. The problem will be, the times that they don’t.

 

Favorite: Pittsburgh Steelers by 7
Prediction: Pittsburgh Steelers 30 – Philadelphia Eagles 20

Las Vegas Raiders at Kansas City Chiefs – Sunday 1:00pm
This one’s not rocket science. You play all your Chiefs and focus on Josh Jacobs for Las Vegas. You’ll be fine if you have them in your lineup. The Patriots showed how to take away Darren Waller, and that’s a bit concerning.

 

Favorite: Kansas City Chiefs by 12.5
Prediction: Kansas City Chiefs 30 – Las Vegas Raiders 24
