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

Jacksonville Jaguars at Tennessee Titans – Thursday 8:20pm
This game has already been played at the time of this writing. The Titans were expected to cover the spread and boy did they ever! More was expected from the Jacksonville ground game but the Titans did a nice job defensively to keep the Jaguars in check.

 

Favorite: Tennessee Titans by 4
Prediction: Tennessee Titans 24 – Jacksonville Jaguars 17

New York Jets at Buffalo Bills – Sunday 1:00pm
The Jets are a dead team walking with a head coach that knows his days are numbered. Sam Darnold should be back but this is going to be an uphill walk both ways for the Jets. The only shining light will be LeSean McCoy as he has a solid day as well as Josh Allen who will once again, rush for copious amounts of yards on the ground. Zay Jones also makes a sneaky flex play this week, he played well just a few weeks ago when these two teams met.

New England Patriots at Miami Dolphins – Sunday 1:00pm
On paper, New England should dispatch Miami without much fanfare but the reality has always been that they don’t play well in Miami. Expect another close game but you want to play all that you own from New England and avoid all that you own from Miami in fantasy. It will be a good fantasy day for Tom Brady and Julian Edelman in particular but Sony Michel and James White too will be worthy of a start.

 

Favorite: New England Patriots by 7.5

Carolina Panthers at Cleveland Browns – Sunday 1:00pm
And just like that, the Carolina Panthers have managed to unravel. Cleveland is still playing hard but the same cannot be said for Carolina. Defensively, Carolina is still tough up front but their secondary has all but stopped playing and Cleveland will be able to take advantage of them. Expect a very nice day from Baker Mayfield. Offensively, there is still a lot to like from Carolina and you want to play all that you own as they’ll play well against the Cleveland defense but the glaring mismatch between Cleveland when they pass the ball and Carolina when they try to defend the pass is too great to ignore and it will be what sinks Carolina this weekend.

 

Favorite: Carolina Panthers by 1.5
Prediction: Cleveland Browns 27 – Carolina Panthers 24
