|Pittsburgh Steelers at Cleveland Browns – Thursday 8:20pm|
This game got away from Pittsburgh in a hurry. We had Cleveland at 21 points scored but Pittsburgh for more. The Steelers don’t play well when trying to come from behind but do well when asked to hold a lead.
Favorite: Cleveland Browns by 2.5
Prediction: Pittsburgh Steelers 27 – Cleveland Browns 21
|Jacksonville Jaguars at Indianapolis Colts – Sunday 1:00pm|
Jacoby Brissett is back! Nick Foles is back! It’s like we’re back in Week 1 again just with a lot less enthusiasm. While you should play Leonard Fournette and Marlon Mack, they aren’t going to pop in your lineup, they’re both floor players that provide a solid floor but their ceiling will be low this week. Do not look here for any surprises, the offenses won’t play all that well — only in a pinch do you look here.

|Buffalo Bills at Miami Dolphins – Sunday 1:00pm|
Now that Miami is playing football again (a tip of the cap to those players for refusing to fold) this will be a surprisingly difficult game for Buffalo. While most would say Buffalo is the better team, in reality, in Miami, these two teams are evenly matched. Expect both to want to feature their ground game and for the receiving options to struggle on both sides. Play the ground games but don’t expect a big number from either of them. Miami embraces the role of the disrespected home underdog in this one and surprises Buffalo.

|New York Jets at Washington Redskins – Sunday 1:00pm|
This game simply isn’t that hard to get a read on for fantasy. We have two bottom dwellers playing each other so look at the defenses in this one if you’re a streamer. If you’re excited to roll out your Redskin/Jets heavy DFS stack this week.. that’s going to backfire on you. Steer clear of these offenses this week and you’ll be better off.
