The Prognosticator – Week 10

Welcome my fantasy brethren to another edition of The Prognosticator, may it be that stitch in time. You’d have to be living under a rock if you haven’t been following the trials and tribulations of the daily fantasy space. Not only has Nevada told them they need to be licensed, but the state of New York has also served the larger companies in the space “cease and desist” orders to stop accepting funds from anyone in New York State — with other states getting in line. I’ll talk to this a little tomorrow in a separate article. In the meantime, enjoy Week 10!

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

Buffalo Bills at New York Jets – Thursday 8:25pm

The Jets defense will be able to keep a lid on the Bills.  Expect the Bills to be challenged in the air and then forced to the ground.  The Jets have Brandon Marshall and Eric Decker and that is all that they will need in this one.

Favorite: New York Jets by 2.5
Prediction: New York Jets 30 – Buffalo Bills 24

Carolina Panthers at Tennessee Titans – Sunday 1:00pm

Jonathan Stewart‘s ankle injury will slow him here, which is a shame because it is a plus-plus matchup for him. Expect some of the other Panther running backs to contribute and for Cam Newton to rack up a lot of rushing yards as well. It will be hard for the Titans to beat the Panthers just because of how long the Panthers will be able to hold the ball.

Cleveland Browns at Pittsburgh Steelers – Sunday 1:00pm

This is a game where the Browns quarterback, whether it be Josh McCown and his achy ribs or the party loving Johnny Manziel, will surprisingly excel. No one will see it coming but out of a deep glow of orange will come a truly astounding performance. The only issue for the Browns on Sunday and why they still lose, is that Deangelo Williams will be a one man wrecking crew.

Miami Dolphins at Philadelphia Eagles – Sunday 1:00pm

Miami will play well enough, you will want to start your Dolphins this week, but not well enough to get past the punishing ground game of the Eagles and the havoc the Eagles can create for an opposing quarterback in a very unfriendly Lincoln Financial Field.

Favorite: Philadelphia Eagles by 6.5
Prediction: Philadelphia Eagles 30 – Miami Dolphins 23

New Orleans Saints at Washington Redskins – Sunday 1:00pm

This will be a gun fight at the O.K. Corral with both teams gun-slinging all afternoon. It will be a long day for both the Saints and the Redskins secondaries. Washington will never be out of this, no team is when you are playing the Saints defense (and they do have a good chance at winning this one outright due to the great day that Kirk Cousins will have) but what makes the scales tip the Saints way, is Mark Ingram and how he is so superior to anything the Redskins can run.

Favorite: New Orleans Saints by 1.5
Prediction: New Orleans Saints 30 – Washington Redskins 27
