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

Green Bay Packers at San Francisco 49ers – Thursday 8:20pm
We expected a closer game, though at some point, you do have to acknowledge just how many starting players the 49ers are missing.

Seattle Seahawks at Buffalo Bills – Sunday 1:00pm
This will be a fun one, with gobs of scoring. Expect both passing games to be on point as they shred through both secondaries but for the difference maker to be, just how surprisingly ineffective Buffalo will be on the ground. There will be goal-line opportunities galore so Zack Moss and Devin Singletary may be able to make up for it there but if not, it won’t end up well for either.

Baltimore Ravens at Indianapolis Colts – Sunday 1:00pm
When you put this game on a scale, it comes out even which makes it one of the more interesting games of the week. The best unit will be the Baltimore rushing unit as they’ll run well here but there is not a lot going right for Baltimore in their passing game right now. Indianapolis is the polar opposite, they can throw the ball well but are currently having some small issues in their run game. We’re taking the home underdog in this because of their ability to pass when needed, which will come in handy in the closing seconds of this game.

Chicago Bears at Tennessee Titans – Sunday 1:00pm
Tennessee just isn’t a good matchup for Chicago, where Tennessee is weak (defensively), Chicago can’t really take advantage and where Chicago is strong (secondary) it doesn’t really matter much to Tennessee, as they can just hand the ball off to Derrick Henry. Expect this to be one of those Derrick Henry games where he simply takes over and because of both his high number of carries and ability to run the clock, it creates a fantasy vacuum where everyone else struggles on both teams to score fantasy points.
