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.
|Seattle Seahawks at Arizona Cardinals – Thursday 8:25pm|
We had the final score as 23-17 which is a lot closer to a “football score” than 22-16, which it ultimately was. Russell Wilson had a good game but we expected a monster game after his last three weeks of putting up large fantasy scores.
Favorite: Seattle Seahawks by 5.5
Prediction: Seattle Seahawks 23 – Arizona Cardinals 17
|New Orleans Saints at Buffalo Bills – Sunday 1:00pm|
The Saints on the road is disconcerting as they just haven’t been a good road team but we’ve all been waiting for the other shoe to drop on the Bills. Sure, it seems like they are getting a lot of their pieces back but I think we all know, deep down, it’s still the Bills and this was slated to be a rebuilding year for them. They are 5-3 and a perfect 4-0 at home but even the Jets have scored more points than they have. The one unit that has managed to get them this far has actually been their defense but that is starting to crumble down the stretch. You know the Bills team everyone was expecting this year? The team that would run LeSean McCoy like mad and flounders everywhere else? Expect that team on Sunday in a regression back to their norm. Big day coming up for your Saints, don’t neglect them.

|Pittsburgh Steelers at Indianapolis Colts – Sunday 1:00pm|
With all the troubles Indianapolis has had, it is no surprise that the Steelers are a heavy favorite. Fantasy wise, you play your Steelers in this and you enjoy their productive days but the plot twist that no one, and I mean NO ONE sees coming is just how gritty the Colts will play at home.

|Cincinnati Bengals at Tennessee Titans – Sunday 1:00pm|
The Titans are tough to beat at home. The simple combination of their power running game, home field and some solid play from the Tennessee defense will be enough to get by the unraveling Bengals who should know by now that their coaching staff, quarterback and large swaths of their offense and defense will either be looking for work or will be wearing another jersey next year. You have to play A.J. Green and I may even endorse Tyler Kroft but beyond those two, it will be a bad day for your Bengals. It may not be a good day for those two either.
