THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 16

Welcome my fantasy brethren to another edition of The Prognosticator, may it float your boat. No more Thursday games, count me among those who applaud that change. If you are playing for glory this weekend, I wish you much luck, I hope we helped to get you through some of the rough patches along the way. Enjoy the Christmas Season one and all, it’s a nice time of year no matter what you believe in.

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

Indianapolis Colts at Baltimore Ravens – Saturday 4:30pm
Alex Collins. His is literally the only name you need to know in this Ravens blowout.

Minnesota Vikings at Green Bay Packers – Saturday 8:30pm
The two facts are that Green Bay is at home in December and it is a division rivalry. Because of those facts, the spirits of all the Packers will be boosted and when on offense, they will really give it a go. Unfortunately for the Packers when on defense, they’re about to be cleaved up like a cheese wheel. In this one, the fantasy gold will be in the purple.

Buffalo Bills at New England Patriots – Sunday 1:00pm
This game will be very much a mirror of when the last time these two teams met earlier this month in a game that the Patriots won 23-3. Expect both teams to come into this contest with a ground-and-pound game plan and for both to have success with it.

Los Angeles Chargers at New York Jets – Sunday 1:00pm
Even though this one is at home for New York, the Chargers on offense are going to have their way with the Jets. It will be a steam rolling. What oddly keeps the Jets somewhat in this game is a fairly successful ground game which not only moves the chains but keeps the Chargers offense off the field.

Prediction: Los Angeles Chargers 27 – New York Jets 23
