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

Cincinnati Bengals at Indianapolis Colts – Sunday 1:00pm
Indianapolis took a tough loss last week, it tells you though, that maybe, just maybe, Cleveland is onto something. I know you Browns fans are immune to this, you know how this story ends, but maybe they can win some games. Back to Indy.. that loss last week isn’t going to sit well and while the Bengals do look like they may be turning a corner, they still have holes in lots of places.

Denver Broncos at New England Patriots – Sunday 1:00pm
Drew Lock may be back but just run from this game this week. The New England defense is still plenty capable. New England needs to win games with Buffalo pacing the division and an improved Miami nipping at their heels, they’ll be taking this one seriously. Stick with Cam Newton and the New England ground game, which at this minute looks like Damien Harris. It may be different a minute from now but right now, it’s Harris. It would be really hard to leave Harris on the bench this week, just know that Rex Burkhead could erupt instead with a 130-yard rushing day and a pair of touchdowns just to rub a little salt into that wound. It happens like that in New England.

Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans – Sunday 1:00pm
If you want to sum this game up in a nice tidy way, it’s nothing more than Deshaun Watson vs. Derrick Henry straight up. Play your Houston receivers, you have to play Jonnu Smith and Co. but only jump on the Houston ground game if you have to.

 

Favorite: Tennessee Titans by 5.5

Detroit Lions at Jacksonville Jaguars – Sunday 1:00pm
There is nothing wrong with the Jacksonville offense, maybe they could use a little line help, but overall, they can play. The defense though? I don’t tend to use guttural language, I know those that are playing are trying their hardest. They are pro-players that have accomplished much in life just to be where they are, they are all truly extraordinary people but man.. it’s trash right now. In fantasy though, Hallelujah, let the fantasy points flow – don’t neglect your Jaguars this week. Lean on the Jaguar ground game, there is safety there. This will be a back and forth affair, and the scoring will be copious. Wash, rinse and repeat and enjoy the fantasy day from both teams.
