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

Washington Redskins at Minnesota Vikings – Thursday 8:20pm

Philadelphia Eagles at Buffalo Bills – Sunday 1:00pm
What a Hodge-podge of a game this will turn out to be. Fantasy wise, it’s really just what Buffalo does on the ground and if Devin Singletary gets handed a large workload, then he makes for a great start but his usage is hard to predict. A lot of people are picking on the Philadelphia secondary and sure, for all the right reasons, but they are sick of hearing it too. John Brown owners may be expecting a bit more than they are actually going to get. Which is the exact opposite of what the rest of the fantasy world seems to be saying. It’s dangerous to count Philadelphia out, they have a lot of the pieces, they just need to make them fit better. In general, steer far clear of this game from a fantasy perspective, but it will make for a good game of football to watch if you want to watch just for the football.

Denver Broncos at Indianapolis Colts – Sunday 1:00pm
This game too will turn into a fantasy wasteland. It seems so promising too with a variety of fantasy starters on rosters everywhere but both offensive units with have their hands full with the other teams defenses. Do you bench T.Y. Hilton? Well no.. we’re not that crazy but know that it will be a struggle for both offenses and there won’t be a lot of points to go around.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Tennessee Titans – Sunday 1:00pm
While everyone else is looking elsewhere, you, the savvy fantasy footballer should focus on this little gem of a game. While others look at one of the two already mentioned fantasy clunkers, this is the one to quietly circle. DFS players take heed, you want to load up on the passing games of both of these teams. Ryan Tannehill knows full well what he is auditioning for and with his receivers wide open, there will be a spark in the Titans passing game. The only real problem for Tennessee in this game is just how much harder Jameis Winston and his even better group of receivers will hammer them right back.

New York Jets at Jacksonville Jaguars – Sunday 1:00pm
The unraveling by the Jets at the hands of New England was well.. telling. Then the news that Robby Anderson is on the block for draft picks and an even deeper rumor that Sam Darnold can be had in deal.. that’s not a recipe for success in New York for this year. Now they travel to Jacksonville to try and slow down Leonard Fournette? Good luck with that.
