The Prognosticator – Week 15

Welcome my fantasy brethren to another edition of The Prognosticator, may it help get you to Week 16. Good luck this week in all of your playoff matches, there are a lot of interesting choices as there are some veterans that maybe don’t look as attractive as some “Johnny come latelies” and I know you have some tough decisions this week.

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
 

Tampa Bay Buccaneers at Saint Louis Rams – Thursday 8:25pm
This game was played last night. The Rams won 31-23.

New York Jets at Dallas Cowboys – Saturday 8:25pm
I just get the feeling that even the Cowboys know they can’t win with Matt Cassel. Expect a heavy dose of Chris Ivory in this as the Jets pound it down low on the Cowoys as Dallas fails to mount much of an effort. Steer clear of your Cowboys as it will be a struggle for them.

Houston Texans at Indianapolis Colts – Sunday 1:00pm
Fantasy wise you want to lean more toward your Texans than your Colts as the Colts defense gives up yards. Why the Colts keep it close is due to some unfortunate turnovers by the Texans in really terrible spots. It’s a nice fantasy matchup for your Texans but the Colts find a way to win this.

Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots – Sunday 1:00pm
It’s Tom Brady against the world. Expect a big day for number 12 as he picks apart the Titans secondary. Brandon Bolden makes a sneaky start here too. It sounds like Julian Edelman may be effective here but if he is held out, Danny Amendola makes a very nice play indeed. Expect the Titans to struggle in this and have a difficult time keeping pace with the Patriots.
Favorite: New England Patriots by 14
Prediction: New England Patriots 34 – Tennessee Titans 23

Atlanta Falcons at Jacksonville Jaguars – Sunday 1:00pm
The Falcons can throw the ball and they’ll play well in the air here. Do not be shy about starting your Falcons in the passing game. The problem as usual for the Falcons is that they suffer in every other phase of the game and with the Jaguars running up the score, this will be a difficult game for the Falcons to win on the road. Don’t be shy about Denard Robinson either, he will run well here in a game that the Jaguars will win quite easily.
Favorite: Jacksonville Jaguars by 3
Prediction: Jacksonville Jaguars 33 – Atlanta Falcons 23

Carolina Panthers at New York Giants – Sunday 1:00pm
The Panthers are a dominant team thanks to their blend of size and talent. The Giants can throw the ball thanks to Eli Manning and Odell Beckham but they are a one trick pony and that simply won’t be enough to get past a team as deep as the Panthers.
Favorite: Carolina Panthers by 5.5
Prediction: Carolina Panthers 37 – New York Giants 27
