THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 6

Welcome my fantasy brethren to another edition of The Prognosticator, may it be on your good side this week. A quick week for ye’ ole’ Progno this week as I’m away on fantasy business, furiously typing away pretending like I am taking some really important notes on whatever it is they are saying. Sometimes it’s not what you know, it’s how you look. Enjoy the games!

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

Philadelphia Eagles at Carolina Panthers – Thursday 8:25pm
A close game is what was expected with Cam Newton and LeGarrette Blount being the focal points. It was a close and entertaining contest.

 

Favorite: Carolina Panthers by 3.5
Prediction: Carolina Panthers 24 – Philadelphia Eagles 23

New England Patriots at New York Jets – Sunday 1:00pm
The Jets always play the Patriots tight. This one being in New York is not going to be as easy of a game as the line makers believe. Until we truly see the Patriots defense play well, the Jets will find a way to keep this one close. Expect many fantasy surprises from your Jets this week. However, you do not bet against the Patriots here as both offenses will be hot.

San Francisco 49ers at Washington Redskins – Sunday 1:00pm
This one being in Washington is going to be an uphill game for the 49ers. Expect Washington to play hard and play well both offensively and defensively. A big day on tap for Kirk Cousins and company.

Green Bay Packers at Minnesota Vikings – Sunday 1:00pm
The Packers air game vs. the Vikings ground game is how this one shakes out. Sam Bradford and Stefon Diggs are not expected so that will hamper what the Vikings can do in the air. Expect for the Packers offense to run well with balance and for the Vikings to stumble. Though Jerick McKinnon makes a nice start here.

Miami Dolphins at Atlanta Falcons – Sunday 1:00pm
In Atlanta, this is going to be a very difficult day for Miami as they just will not be able to keep up on the scoreboard.
