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.
|Washington Redskins at Dallas Cowboys – Thursday 8:25pm|
We expected a Dallas victory but thought the Redskins would keep it closer. The game did finish close to what was projected as far as the Cowboys being able to run the ball and that Washington would emphasize their passing game.
Favorite: Dallas Cowboys by 1.5
Prediction: Dallas Cowboys 27 – Washington Redskins 23
|New England Patriots at Buffalo Bills – Sunday 1:00pm|
It will be a much tighter contest in Buffalo in this division matchup than many are giving this game credit for. Similar to how we predicted the Jets to really challenge the Panthers last week (which most scoffed at) the Bills will give the Patriots a run for their money. LeSean McCoy will run well here and of course, you play your Patriots, but New England can’t sleep in this one as it will be a challenge. Going to Buffalo is one of the Patriots’ least favorite places to play.
Favorite: New England Patriots by 8.5
Prediction: New England Patriots 24 – Buffalo Bills 21
|Denver Broncos at Miami Dolphins – Sunday 1:00pm|
There is very little fantasy wise that will come out of this game. The only unit to look at would be when Miami throws the ball as there are some flex play matchups in that group. The rest will struggle here in an error filled messy game.
Prediction: Miami Dolphins 23 – Denver Broncos 17
|Kansas City Chiefs at New York Jets – Sunday 1:00pm|
The Jets haven’t been given their true due as they have continued to play hard and play well. Robby Anderson rising like a Phoenix from the ashes has contributed to the overall growth of the team this season. The best fantasy unit on the field will be when the Chiefs offense takes the field, you can play what you want from it and expect solid days but the Jets will play with balance as the Kansas City defense lets them down yet again.
Favorite: Kansas City Chiefs by 3.5
Prediction: New York Jets 31 – Kansas City Chiefs 17
|Houston Texans at Tennessee Titans – Sunday 1:00pm|
The running games will struggle here as both teams go to the air early and often. Think twice before playing DeMarco Murray, Derrick Henry or Lamar Miller as they won’t perform as well as you might hope. Stick to both passing games as they will play very well in a game that will ultimately be quite entertaining.
Favorite: Tennessee Titans by 6.5
Prediction: Tennessee Titans 24 – Houston Texans 23
