Patriots vs Jets Preview: Betting Line, Odds & Pick

BFFL Week 11 Projections

Quarterbacks

Pos Player Team Opponent Last Week Projection Comments................................
QB Chuck Downfield Texans vs. Ponies 45 34 The Ponies are short, slow, and have been getting destroyed by opposing quarterbacks all season long. It should be a great day for Chuck Downfield.
QB Pablo Sanchez Melonheads vs. Colts 12 31 Pablo has scored less than 20 points twice this season: last week, and the week before. Despite the slide, Pablo is still tied with Amy for the highest scoring player in the league. The Colts have a notably weak pass defense and this should allow Pablo to return to greatness.
QB Amy Bostwick Vikings vs. 49ers 49 31 She may have single-handedly dragged you into the playoffs. Don't even think once about moving Amy anywhere out of your lineup.
QB Debby Nagasawa Cowboys vs. Bears 26 29 Debby has been great all season long and shows no signs of slowing down. She'll be locked into your starting slot as long as you're still in the playoffs.
QB Judy Abwunza Eagles vs. Wombats 25 26 Judy was unable to complete a pass last week but ran her way to a decent game. She should be just fine against a Wombats team that gives up a lot of points.
QB Steve McNair Raiders @ Armadillos 13 26 Steve was bamboozled last week but the Armadillos defense has been beatable. Steve could bounce back this week.
QB Betty Houstan Monsters vs. Giants 27 25 Betty is one of the hottest QBs in the league and might be worth a look this week. She's been doing great against tough opponents and now she's facing a not-so-great opponent.
QB Rich Gannon Packers vs. Falcons 24 25 Another day, another 20. Rich is possibly the most consistent QB in the league. If you need another 20 or so, plug Rich back into your lineup.
QB Thor Thwackhammer Rams vs. Hornets 25 25 Thor had a great game last week while throwing 4 interceptions. Now he's facing an awful defense in the Hornets. He could have a similar game, without the interceptions.
QB Holly Franklin Giants @ Monsters 24 24 Holly was impeccable last week and might be worth a second look in your lineup. However, the Monsters are hot right now.
QB Drew Bledsoe Chargers @ Browns 12 23 Drew has a juicy matchup here and might be worth a start, depending on the other QBs you have in stock.
QB Ben None Colts @ Melonheads 34 23 Ben showed us last week that he's still got it. But the Melonheads have a tough defense, although it has been shaken lately. This game could go either way, but it's hard to bet against Ben.
QB Brett Favre 49ers @ Vikings 26 21 Brett has been clutch all season long, but this is the toughest defense he's had to face. It could be a tough day for the gunslinger, but he'll certainly be slinging it.
QB Sally Dobbs Armadillos vs. Raiders 21 20 This game could turn into a shootout and Sally has the potential to go off. However, Sally has underplayed her worth a few times this season.
QB Andy Gibbons Titans @ Patriots 23 20 If you need a summary of Andy's season, look no further. The 23 ponts he scored last week were his season high. He's still in the bottom third of QBs and is not a good fantasy commodity.
QB David Wilco Falcons @ Packers 31 18 David was fantastic last week, but I think the Packers pose more of a challenge to him. You could do better in your lineup this week.
QB Lulu Legosi Jets vs. Steelers 17 17 This matchup could become a defensive chess game between both teams, as there are two strong defenses matching up. However, Lulu can commit to the run game, which leaves her with a high floor.
QB Debra Hannigan Steelers @ Jets 29 16 Debra has a tough matchup this week against the solid Jets defense. She also hasn't hit 30 points in three games, after doing so in 6 of the first 7 games. Might be a rough week for the Debster.
QB Bert Nicholson Browns vs. Chargers 11 14 Bert isn't trustworthy enough at this point in the season. He could have a nice game by his standards, which are probably lower than your standards.
QB Stuart Sullivan Hornets @ Rams 14 14 Chuck Downfield just passed all over the Rams defense. Stuart could have a similar game, but fewer weapons at his disposal make that tougher.
QB Zena Fromme Bears @ Cowboys 18 13 Zena is in for a world of hurt against the team with the top record in the league. I'd stay away from her here.
QB Matt Monday Wombats @ Eagles 19 12 Matt had a nice little run but don't think about picking him up now with 4 tough opponents coming up to finish his regular season.
QB Dan Doorknob Patriots vs. Titans 4 10 I wouldn't�and you shouldn't, either.
QB Sharon Crowe Ponies @ Texans 12 3 Yeah, it's not gonna be a good day for Sharon, I can tell you that.

Running Backs, Wide Receivers, and Tight Ends

Pos Player Team Opponent Last Week Projection Comments........................................
RB/WR Armon Hammerstein Armadillos vs. Raiders 43 34 Looks like Armon is back, and just in time for the fantasy playoffs. He was outstanding last week and should be equally phenomenal this week.
RB/WR Knuckles McGhee Cowboys vs. Bears 20 34 Knuckles has been a stud forever and has a great matchup to take advantage of this week. Knuckles is set to have a huge performance.
WR Vicki Kawaguchi Chargers @ Browns 21 30 Vicki is the #1 fantasy WR by a pretty considerable margin. No reason to turn away from her now. She's got a great matchup and potential for a huge game.
RB/WR Florence Jackson Giants @ Monsters 36 28 FloJack is killing it right now and is a girl you want in your lineup. You need to keep rolling with her while she's got momentum.
WR Evan Lindstrom Monsters vs. Giants 55 28 Evan Lindstrom. What else can we say!? He just put up 55 fantasy points against the Melonheads, one of the toughest opponents in the league. He can get it done against anybody.
RB/WR Stephanie Morgan Raiders @ Armadillos 13 27 How nice of Stephanie to take a break before the playoffs and not during. She should be ready to go in full this week and is definitely worth a start.
WR Terrell Davis Rams vs. Hornets 36 24 Terrell has been on fire the last few weeks, I'd keep him in there while he's hot. Especially against a poor opponent.
WR Jorge Garcia Texans vs. Ponies 26 21 Jorge is the man and should continue to carry your team during the fantasy playoffs. He's got a great matchup here.
WR Ernie Steele Titans @ Patriots 19 21 Ernie played second banana to Pickles last week, but don't be alarmed. Ernie is still the top dog in this offense, he's got a great matchup against the Patriots, and he should still be in your lineup this week.
WR Maria Luna Falcons @ Packers 43 20 Mama mia! Maria was dominant last week and proved once again why she's a must-have fantasy wide receiver. She'll keep it up in the playoffs, just maybe not 40+ points every week.
RB/WR Frankie McDoogle Jets vs. Steelers 16 20 Frankie has been the backbone of your fantasy team all season long. He might be in a tough matchup, but it's Frankie Mac. He's gonna give it his all.
WR Rainbow Callahan Melonheads vs. Colts 10 20 Pablo hasn't had a good passing game in a while, but the stars are aligning against the Colts' poor pass defense. This should be a good thing for the likes of Rainbow.
WR Jimmy Rockfish Packers vs. Falcons 35 20 Jimmy has been absolutely incendiary the latter half of the season. He's scored 30+ in 5 of his last 6 games. He needs to stay out their to carry you through the playoffs.
RB/WR Victor Jones 49ers @ Vikings 22 19 In games like these, the 49ers depend on the dynamic duo of Brett and Victor. He may not be able to go off as much as he has before, but he should still have a decent game.
RB/WR Belinda Winters Vikings vs. 49ers 13 19 Belinda hasn't been amazing, but she's still been solid. Hopefully she can pick up the pace a little bit in the playoffs.
RB/WR Georgette Washington Wombats @ Eagles 43 19 Georgette has been unbelievable lately with 87 points in her last two games. However, the Wombats might hit a wall against an Eagles team looking for a win.
RB/WR Reese Worthington Eagles vs. Wombats 2 18 The Eagles pass game was invisible last week, but they should have a better time against the Wombats. Reese hasn't lived up to expectations this season but he's still a good fantasy RB.
WR Austin Carpenter Packers vs. Falcons 20 18 Austin has been turning it on the last few weeks and he might be a good fantasy start if you're lacking in the WR position.
WR Baloney Maloney Bears @ Cowboys 6 16 Baloney wasn't doing much last week but he's the most likely Bear to have a good game. But tread lightly here.
WR Mindy Weaver Steelers @ Jets 29 16 Mindy has the cards stacked against her this week, but she's been very consistent and is a pretty trustworthy start. But I wouldn't expect one of her best games in this one.
WR Yasmin Kristov Steelers @ Jets 10 16 It's a tough matchup, but all Yasmin needs is one deep bomb to be worth a fantasy start. She's got the best chance for that big play, or plays, that the Steelers will need.
TE Marky Dubois Texans vs. Ponies 5 15 This is a perfect matchup for Marky, there's really nobody on the Ponies defense to slow him down.
RB/WR Mikey Thomas Texans vs. Ponies 20 15 Mikey has been a solid contributor and is ready for more in a good matchup against the Ponies.
WR Neal Smith Colts @ Melonheads 0 14 Neal was shut out last week but he's still the most likely Colt to catch a touchdown. Hopefully he can bounce back, but if you've got better wide receivers, you might want to lean on them.
WR Nutzy Nussbaum Rams vs. Hornets 4 14 Nutzy could find his way into the end zone this week against a Hornets team that gets destroyed regularly.
WR Nate Kowalski Browns vs. Chargers 8 13 Nate hasn't been doing much lately, but the Chargers have been giving up a lot of points lately. Nate could see a little boost in numbers.
WR Dwight Frye Cowboys vs. Bears 15 13 Dwight could get some end zone looks this week against a poor pass defense. But he's a little too consistent to trust in your lineup in such an important game.
WR Hank Wilson Hornets @ Rams 13 13 These Hornets receivers could split the workload and neither one will be worth a start.
WR Omar Stephano Hornets @ Rams 12 13 These Hornets receivers could split the workload and neither one will be worth a start.
WR Amir Khan Raiders @ Armadillos 0 12 Amir was shutout last week but I think this matchup has more potential for all Raiders receivers.
WR Stinky Steiner Chargers @ Browns 2 11 I wouldn't trust Stinky in my lineup, but he could score this week against a bad defense.
WR Cade McNown Giants @ Monsters 13 11 Cade's fantasy output is just a little bit less than what you'd want to see before putting him in your lineup.
WR Kenny Kawaguchi Melonheads vs. Colts 0 11 Kenny has kinda been forgotten about in this offense but the Melonheads should pass the ball a lot, and mix it up. Kenny could be worth something this week.
WR Kim Esposito Patriots vs. Titans 0 11 If you follow Kim's pattern of scores throughout the season, she's gonna score double digits this week. If you follow your gut, you know she's not worth starting. Both can be true.
WR Nellie O'Neal Patriots vs. Titans 16 11 Nellie could find her way to the end zone but that's a big could. I would lay off of her.
WR Nickie Noodleson Armadillos vs. Raiders 12 10 Nickie could get involved in a game with a lot of passing, but Armon is still the target looked at more often.
WR Pinky Purton Bears @ Cowboys 20 10 Pinky was great last week but she'll be facing a rough defense in this game.
RB/TE Mohammed Springsteen Melonheads vs. Colts 5 10 Mohammed has been stellar and has a chance to do some damage against a less-than-perfect defense.
RB Georgia Doyle Ponies @ Texans 0 10 Georgia gets the start at RB this week, which means she could rack up the short receptions.
WR Lance Lundergaard Ponies @ Texans 14 10 I think the Ponies will have their hands full against this Texans defense. You might want to look elsewhere for WR's this week.
TE Jocinda Smith Rams vs. Hornets 0 10 Jocinda will be back in the fold, since they're not playing the Texans. That's good news for fantasy owners, Jocinda is a great start this week.
WR Petunia Young Falcons @ Packers 16 9 Petunia will always be second in line for receptions after Maria. She's just not consistent enough to be in your lineup in the playoffs.
TE Kimmy Eckman Texans vs. Ponies 10 9 Kimmy has been a solid tight end all season long and is still worthy of your starting spot.
WR Pickles Peterson Titans @ Patriots 30 9 Pickles' 30-point outburst last week represents about 1/3 of his entire season's total. Long story short, he's not doing that again. At least, not on this team.
WR Lola Linkletter Vikings vs. 49ers 6 9 Lola might be good for one long bomb, but that's about all she'll get against a tough Niners defense.
TE Needle Haystack Bears @ Cowboys 9 8 Needle has started to pick it up and is a great tight end to have right now during these fantasy playoffs.
WR George Coleman Browns vs. Chargers 23 8 George was the star of the show last week but he has been very up and down this season. Hard to predict a repeat performance for him.
TE Jevon Kearse Chargers @ Browns 16 8 Jevon has been amazing and needs to stay in your lineup.
RB/TE Travis Diamond Monsters vs. Giants 2 8 Travis had an off game last week but he's still a great TE candidate. You should keep him rolling.
WR Patsy Clinehurst Ponies @ Texans 14 8 It could be rough for all Ponies receivers involved here. Patsy isn't quite fast enough to have those long bombs the Texans often give up.
WR Angela Delvecchio Texans vs. Ponies 6 8 Angela could get a red zone look this weekend but would be a risky fantasy play.
WR Ronny Dobbs Texans vs. Ponies 0 8 Ronny could sneak in a touchdown if the Texans have some garbage times, but that's a big gamble.
WR Cullen Sullivan 49ers @ Vikings 22 7 I think Cullen's luck may run out here. He's facing a really tough matchup.
WR Liz Levin Monsters vs. Giants 8 7 Coming of a career day, the opposing defense might be centered on covering Evan, leaving Liz open. However, she's still a risky fantasy play.
TE Karla Karloff Raiders @ Armadillos 6 7 Karla might be a good TE to save your team if you still don't have a good one.
RB/TE Brace-Face Brixton Wombats @ Eagles 12 7 Brace-Face has been a solid tight end the last couple weeks, hopefully she can keep up the momentum throughout the playoffs.
WR Susie Townshend Wombats @ Eagles 2 7 Susie hasn't had to do much with Georgette stealing the show. She's not a very good fantasy player at the moment.
WR Tiffany Bosworth Eagles vs. Wombats 0 6 Tiffany may have finished her plateau for the season and is on the downward trend.
RB Karen Donato Patriots vs. Titans 2 6 Karen might get some more looks at running back this week.
TE Lisa Crocket Colts @ Melonheads 14 5 Lisa racked up 1/3 of her season total last week with 14 points. I don't think she's likely to reach the end zone again.
WR Annie Frazier Jets vs. Steelers 0 5 Annie has been all but nonexistent the last few weeks. I think it's okay to dump her before these playoffs begin.
TE J.J. Shetland Vikings vs. 49ers 0 5 J.J. has had his moments, but they haven't been very big or very frequent.
TE Oliver Ramierez 49ers @ Vikings 2 4 Oliver is not to be trusted in your lineup right now.
RB/TE June O'Shea Giants @ Monsters 4 4 Well it's now July, so June's time may be up.
RB/TE Ricky Williams Jets vs. Steelers 3 4 Ricky has seen an increased role the last few games, but I'd still be uneasy recommending him as a tight end for the rest of the season.
RB/TE Rose Watson Steelers @ Jets 2 4 Rose has been serviceable but as also been slipping more and more. You might want to pick up a better tight end to give you an edge in the fantasy playoffs.
RB/TE Carlos Ocampo Titans @ Patriots 0 4 Carlos has been quite the disappointment this season, hopefully you're not still relying on him for the playoffs.
RB George Anderson Browns vs. Chargers 4 3
WR Amanda Craven Colts @ Melonheads 3 3 Amanda is probably worth more as a kicker than a wide receiver at this point.
RB/TE Tony Delvecchio Cowboys vs. Bears 15 3 Tony finally showed up for once! But this makes me think it won't happen again.
RB/TE Dmitri Petrovich Eagles vs. Wombats 2 3 Dmitri is a shell of his former self and is probably not the tight end you want in your lineup right now.
RB Daphne Farrington Giants @ Monsters 11 3
RB Marcus Weiss Giants @ Monsters 4 3
TE Judy Place Patriots vs. Titans 3 3 Now is not the time or Place for Judy to be on your fantasy team.
RB Tina Herrara 49ers @ Vikings 1 2
TE Olive Hussein Armadillos vs. Raiders 3 2 Now is not the time to experiment with your tight end.
WR Cisco Kidd Bears @ Cowboys 4 2
TE Fred Sanders Browns vs. Chargers 0 2 Fred is not the tight end you want right now.
TE Tom Getz Hornets @ Rams 0 2 Tom just isn't worth a look at this point.
RB Chico Pappas Melonheads vs. Colts 2 2
TE Leah Wayne Packers vs. Falcons 2 2 Leah is best left on the waiver wire.
RB Kiesha Phillips Armadillos vs. Raiders 0 1

Defenses

Pos Player Team Opponent Last Week Projection Comments...........................................
DEF Cowboys Defense Cowboys vs. Bears 13 18 The Cowboys are facing the Bears and Zena Fromme, who is a great target for a lot of sacks. The Cowboys are a great defense this week.
DEF Jets Defense Jets vs. Steelers 15 16 Strength meets strength here. The Jets defense and the Steelers offense. Defense usually wins these battles. No reason to doubt the Jets now after trusting them all season long.
DEF Texans Defense Texans vs. Ponies 15 16 The Texans have been killing it on defense all season long, and lucky for you that in the first week of the fantasy playoffs they have a dream matchup against the Ponies.
DEF Vikings Defense Vikings vs. 49ers 22 16 The Vikings defense is amazing, but so is the 49ers offense. Two powerhouses are clashing here. But the Vikings can get it done against anybody.
DEF 49ers Defense 49ers @ Vikings 17 15 This is pretty fierce battle between two amazing teams. Amy Bostwick is a force of nature, but the Niners defense has a mind of their own. This one could go either way.
DEF Eagles Defense Eagles vs. Wombats 4 15 What is going on here? The Eagles are all out of sorts and need to regroup. The good news is that the Wombats are usually a good team to face when you're on the other side.
DEF Raiders Defense Raiders @ Armadillos 11 15 This matchup could go either way. This game features the two most inconsistent teams in the league. Both capable of greatness or epic failures. Anyway, the Raiders might be worth a start based on the upside.
DEF Rams Defense Rams vs. Hornets 15 15 The Rams have a nice matchup and are fresh off of a turnover fest against the Texans. They might be a sneaky pick-up if you need a defense.
DEF Chargers Defense Chargers @ Browns 8 14 The Chargers don't have a very good fantasy defense but facing the Browns is a good subsidy of points.
DEF Monsters Defense Monsters vs. Giants 6 14 The Monsters are firing on all cylinders. They've beaten three really good teams in a row and now they're facing an okay team. They should be able to put everything together into a stellar performance.
DEF Titans Defense Titans @ Patriots 13 14 Seeing the Patriots on the other side of the line of scrimmage is a good feeling for any defense. While the Titans aren't the strongest defense in the league, they could exploit this favorable matchup.
DEF Melonheads Defense Melonheads vs. Colts 4 12 The Melonheads defense has been slipping but they're still one of the best in league. However, Ben None has been tough to contain and thus won't get sacked as much as other QBs.
DEF Packers Defense Packers vs. Falcons 9 12 The Packers defense is just a touch below the rest of the defenses that are already owned in these fantasy leagues.
DEF Steelers Defense Steelers @ Jets 6 12 Last week was rough for the Steelers, who could not contain Ben None, although they were still able to win. This week they face a similar QB in Lulu Legosi, so the Steel Curtain will have to bring their A-game.
DEF Giants Defense Giants @ Monsters 12 11 The Giants defense is up against an opponent that has knocked off three straight good teams. Could be a rough day for the G-Men.
DEF Patriots Defense Patriots vs. Titans 8 11 The Pats don't actually have too bad of a matchup here. Still, there are plenty of other defenses that could serve you better.
DEF Armadillos Defense Armadillos vs. Raiders 16 10 The Armadillos had a great matchup and took advantage against the Patriots. But this week they face the Raiders, who can put up a lot of points and not care who gets in their way.
DEF Browns Defense Browns vs. Chargers 7 10 Starting the Browns defense would not be your wisest move, but teams have played well against the Chargers offense this season.
DEF Ponies Defense Ponies @ Texans 10 10 There could be turnovers galore against the Texans, but I don't think that's enough incentive to start the Ponies defense this week.
DEF Bears Defense Bears @ Cowboys 13 9 The Bears are facing one of the most unstoppable offenses in the league and I think they have little to no hope in stopping them.
DEF Falcons Defense Falcons @ Packers 9 8 The Falcons are facing a well-rounded offense this week and probably don't have what it takes to crack into your fantasy lineup.
DEF Colts Defense Colts @ Melonheads 10 7 The Colts could have a rough time trying to wrangle in Pablo Sanchez. I wouldn't trust them this week.
DEF Wombats Defense Wombats @ Eagles 7 6 The Wombats don't have any more bad teams on their schedule, so their defense can be safely left alone.
DEF Hornets Defense Hornets @ Rams 5 5 The Hornets have the worst defense in the league by far.

Matchup Notes:
Hey all, here is this week's matchup notes pulled from the weekly NFL pick'em article over at FantasyData.com. The best way to get the most out of this is to simply look for the players in the matchup that you may have questions about this week and hopefully you'll find some answers there. There are also some nuggets in here for sports betting in case you're looking to put money on any gams this week, but they can also be really helpful for fantasy as well. If you've been following this post every week, first of all, thank you! But just a heads up, I have a bye next week so there won't be any notes for Week 12. Good luck this week!

[Game Preview] Week 14 - Philadelphia Eagles(5-7) vs. New York Giants (2-10)

Philadelphia Eagles (5-7) vs New York Giants(2-10)
It is hard to stay positive about this team after laying an egg last week to one of the worst teams in the league in the Miami Dolphins. Ryan Fitzpatrick continues to own Jim Schwartz no matter what team he is on and how bad they might that year Schwartz refused to make adjustments with some reason leaving guys in run support against the league’s worst rushing offense and thought it was better to stay in cover-1 as opposed to give his corners help over the top. With that putrid performance the Eagles dropped to 5-7, yet somehow miraculous still control their own destiny to make the playoffs if they win their remaining 4 games, all against division rivals (NYG(2-10), @WAS(3-9), DAL(6-7), @NYG(2-10). A task that looks completely doable, though no guarantee especially after last weeks disaster. The first of those games will occur Monday night when the Giants make the trip down I-95 for a sorry excuse of Prime Time football with two teams both in the red. The Eagles will probably see an old face one last time as Eli Manning will be getting the start for the first time week 2 for the injured Daniel Jones. The Eagles have taken it to the Giants in the last 5 years going 9-1 in that span and will look to continue that dominance if they want to keep their playoff hopes alive. The Giants are in the middle of a rebuild and should be a team the Eagles can get it going against as they have deficiencies on both sides of the football. If the Eagles can get the offense going and limit Barkley they should be able to come away with a win and take their first ever lead in the eeries history with the Giants. Go Birds!

Eagles 25 - Giants 23
The Eagles injury riddled defense was able to do just enough for Carson Wentz and the injury riddled offense to find a groove and get the running game going. The Giants jumped out to a 12 points lead early thanks to a Saquan Barkley TD pass and a pair of field goals from Rosas, but the Eagles answered with a field goal of their own to make it 12-3. The Giants responded with a 51 yard Saquan Barkley TD run to give the Giants a 16 point lead. The Eagles traded blows answering with a Zach Ertz TD pass from Carson Wentz and an interception to close out the half. The Eagles got a their running game going in the second half and took the lead in the 4th quarter on a Josh Adams TD run to take a 3 point lead. The Giants were able to move the ball and even it at 22 with just under 6 minutes to play. The Eagles were able to move the ball down the field chewing up clock for Jake Elliott to kick a game winning field goal with 22 second left in the game. With limited time and deep in their own territory the Giants weren't able to get anything going to give the Eagles the win and keep their playoff hopes alive.

Stats to Know
The Blind Side
Let us compare LTs Nate Solder to Jason Peters/Andre Dillard this season, shall we? Of Offensive Linemen, Solder is currently tied for 3rd-most Sacks Allowed (9), tied for 6th in Hits Allowed (7), and has allowed the 4thd-most Hurries (29). That amounts to the greatest number of total Pressures allowed, thus far (45). In all of 2019, Solder only allowed 33 Pressures. Jason Peters has allowed 1 sack, 3 hits, and 11 hurries, while Dillard has allowed 4 sacks, 4, hits, and 13 hurries = combined 5 sacks, 7 hits, 24 hurries
Matchups to Watch
Giants Pass Defense vs Eagles Passing Offense
Another week, another stoppable force meeting a movable object, but this time on Monday Night Football. The Eagles Offense was able to perform well, even with mistakes, against a bad Dolphins offense last week. While they could have scored more points, when your defense let’s up 37 against a trash offense, there are bigger causes for concern. Like Miami, the Giants defense is straight booty cheeks. The only difference is the Giants don’t have the tanking excuse to hang their hat on. This is a defense that is 28th in opposing passer rating, 27th in pass plays of 20+ yards, 31st in pass plays of 40+ yards, and 30th in pass defense by DVOA – barely better than Miami. One area where the Giants can hang their hat on is their 11th ranked rush defense by DVOA… really making a difference, eh? The Eagles passing offense has another cupcake matchup this week they must take advantage of despite the calls to run more. It doesn’t mean to pass every play, it means they must find a way to get a bad receiver group open regularly. Alshon Jeffery is fresh off his best game of the year. While he does look like he is slowing down pretty quickly, he is still the Eagles best Wide Receiver. Nelson Agholor finally didn’t hurt the team and JJAW got his first career touchdown reception. Carson Wentz had a good but not flawless game against Miami that he hopefully builds off of. Wentz was 3rd in aggressiveness percentage indicating the receivers still aren’t getting enough separation and the scheme not helping them get open more regularly. This is concerning given the dearth of talent on the Miami roster. The Giants also have a dearth of talent in their secondary, led by rookie DeAndre Baker, who has been one of the worst DBs in the NFL this season. The Giants found someone to give Jalen Mills a run for his money. Janoris Jenkins is still the Giants best option at CB and the only one capable of playing man coverage despite being in the downside of his career, but even he isn’t playing well anymore. Their safety spots are a black hole. They still have Alec Ogletree and he is still terrible in coverage. This is a juicy matchup for a bad Eagles offense they need to take advantage of. Given what they scored last week, and the meat left on the bone, that shouldn’t and can’t be an issue for the Eagles on Monday.
Giants Passing Offense vs Eagles “Passing Defense”
As I’ve said the last few weeks, the Eagles recent surge on defense was more of a mirage than an actual turn around in performance. Ryan Fitzpatrick went God mode turning Devante Parker into Jerry Rice for 60 minutes as the Eagles defense was dry-humped up and down the field in spectacular fashion. This secondary cannot cover or make plays on the ball. They struggle to tackle. They can’t communicate. They are a mess. Week 13 does serve as an outlier to a degree; meaning, Fitzpatrick was nearly flawless, Parker made every single big catch he could, etc. Everything broke the Dolphins way in week 13, but they attacked the Eagles in the way every opposing offense should to find success… through the air! Fortunately, the Giants also have garbage tier QB play on the menu Sunday with Derps McGee – Eli Manning – retuning to the starting lineup in place of a banged up Danny Turnovers. Even though the Eagles defense does have a habit allowing mediocre players to turn into Hall of Famers, this is still a favorable matchup for them. Eli is in the waning days of his interesting career having been close to washed for some time. He’s not an aggressive passer and his arm strength is fading by the minute. While that plays into the Eagles favor since he’ll struggle to his big plays through the air if he attempts them at all, he’s still capable of hitting some quick timing plays underneath. The Giants may have Engram, Tate, and Shepard for this contest to go with stud rookie Darius Slayton and second year monster Saquon Barkley. Eli hasn’t played in some time so he should be rusty and out of sync with a receiver group that hasn’t played a full game together yet this year. The Eagles must be careful in their secondary, ensuring they play smart and tackle well. All of these players are able to win deep and after the catch. Given Eli’s current abilities, the former is likely out of the question. We’ve seen Eli quick strike this defense to death and could again. The defense cannot allow that to happen, especially against a poorly coached and scheme opposing offense.
Giants Offensive Line vs. Eagles Defensive Front
The Giants offensive line is still a below average unit on the whole but has made some steady improvements the last two years under Dave Gettleman. It’s probably the one area this guy can hang his hat on. Second year pro Will Hernandez is a bully at Left Guard and a good player that will continue to improve as he grows in this league. New right guard Kevin Zeitler has been dinged up on the season and is still the quality pass blocker he has been throughout his career. Journeyman center Joe Halapio is decent in the middle. This trio gives them a quality interior – it’s the tackles that let them down. Nate Solder has struggled mightily this season at Left Tackle after scoring big in Free Agency. Mike Remmers is still a below average offensive lineman playing right tackle. The Eagles interior rushers should find success on Sunday even though the Giants interior OL isn’t as poor as it once was, it’s the Defensive Ends that should feast in their matchups. And they need to since we all know the Eagles secondary just can’t cover anyone worth a damn. Derek Barnett, Brandon Graham, Josh Sweat, and Vinny Curry all have plus matchups against inferior tackles. We’ve seen Eli play scared under pressure and can easily be forced into errant throws. Additionally, the defensive front needs to play smart and gap sounds in order to control Saquon Barkely on the ground. Barkley is a tremendous talent that is clearly slowed by an ankle injury he suffered earlier this season. Philadelphia cannot be reckless in their defense as Barkley is still capable of making them pay. This will help the Giants offense be in less favorable down and distance situations that can force them into making mistakes. It always starts up front with the Eagles and will remain that way as long as the secondary is a liability.

gpngc's Week 14 QB Rankings

gpngc’s Week 14 QB Rankings
I love the weekly post that details expert rankings compared to each other. I think falling into groupthink is a mistake most fantasy owners make. I have a football background and an understanding of DFS, which is overlooked in yearly fantasy decision-making. These rankings will differ greatly from normal rankings. They are not best used for following blindly, but more for finding a different perspective. If they are well-received I will share other positions.
QB
  1. Lamar Jackson @ BUF - Matchup proof. Can’t wait to cash his MVP ticket.
  2. Matt Ryan vs CAR – With Julio and Hooper back, he’s my BOOM of the week. 47.5 total and the Falcons haven’t been able to run the ball all year. The Panthers D is bad. The Falcons D is also bad. Ryan has a high ceiling and high floor. He’ll get sacked, but in some shootouts sacks just mean more yards. I don’t foresee a particularly inspired defensive effort from a team that just got shredded by the Redskins at home.
  3. Deshaun Watson vs DEN – His floor is very high due to rushing and TD necessity (only 5 RB rushing TDs). They’ve done a great job designing creative plays, especially in the red zone. Denver is good at limiting the passing game, but so was NE. Watson has historically gone on hot streaks (winning streak last year, ridiculous stretch in rookie season). Last week started one.
  4. Sam Darnold vs MIA – BOOM. People will assuredly overreact to last week’s performance which featured multiple mind-numbing drops by Jets receivers. This is a tremendous spot for Darnold versus a terrible pass D. The O/U opened at 43.5 and has now moved up to 45. The Jets are implied to score 25 points, 7th highest this week. Two bad pass defenses = a ton of fantasy points for the QBs. Darnold has also been much better at home than on the road this season.
  5. Carson Wentz vs NYG – 2nd highest implied total of the week (27.75) and the Giants have a good run D and terrible pass D. Wentz went through a rough stretch against really good pass defenses. He also went to the locker room with an injury against Seattle. Last week he sure looked healthy. NYG have the 3rd worst pass D DVOA in the league and give up the 3rd most fantasy points per game to opposing WRs. Philly will force Eli to try to beat them which will either mean incredibly lucky TDs for guys like Slayton and Shepard or multiple turnovers giving the Eagles better scoring opportunities.
  6. Ryan Tannehill @ OAK – The O/U in this game has gone up and will probably keep going up. We know Tanny has been efficient and the Titans should score more than 3 TDs. Only concern is that the D/ST and Henry are very capable scorers. Oakland is bad against both the run and pass, but the only gameplan that makes sense is to contain Henry. Look for plenty of bootlegs and playaction, and Henry to catch a couple of passes. A 4-TD game is more likely than a 1-TD game for Tanny.
  7. Jimmy Garoppolo @ NO – The O/U is down from 45.5 to 44.5 and both teams go relatively slow, so any shootout potential will come from passing game execution. NO is bottom-5 in RB fantasy pts allowed but has given up 76 receptions to RBs (4th most). Jimmy G performed admirably on the road in BAL and will probably get back his LT against the Saints good pass rush. I don’t see the Saints allowing the 49ers to beat them on the ground (the Ravens aren’t a great run D), so Jimmy G will have to keep them in it.
  8. Kirk Cousins vs DET - DET is really bad against the pass and 28.25 implied total for MIN is the highest of the week. They have given up the most receiving TDs to RBs in the NFL (8). Cook is banged up, so I’d put Cousins’ floor at 2 TDs. This could be a blowout, which would keep Cousins’ attempts down, but how they get to a blowout will probably be due to his success. There’s a very high floor here.
  9. Jacoby Brissett vs TB – The Colts want to run the ball. That won’t happen this week, so they’ll be forced to pass. Raw data-based projections can mislead people. Based on prior performances by the Bucs D and Colts O, Brissett’s passing attempts projections based solely on math will be underrepresented. The Bucs DL has feasted on some atrocious OL play in their recent defensive surge, which has caused a lot of unsustainable turnovers. The Colts OL will give Brissett time and allow him to produce versus a terrible secondary. If TY comes back, that’s a boost. Even if not, I expect a big day from Doyle (TB 4th-worst vs TEs) and Pascal.
  10. Kyle Allen @ ATL – Atlanta is good against the run and 6th-worst in DVOA against the pass. McCaffrey won’t be shut out, but in a possible shootout, bad ATL DBs will be exposed by Moore and Samuel. 22 implied total in a close division game, and McCaffrey keeps getting stuffed at the goal line. Plus, they want to see what they have in Allen going forward. Pretty obvious spot for a lot less rushing attempts than usual.
  11. Aaron Rodgers vs WAS – Washington is bad against RBs and hasn’t even given up that many TDs (7). Aaron Jones struggled against the Giants as Rodgers took advantage of DBs and DL literally stuck in snow instead. It wasn’t a spot for a twitchy explosive back like Jones. These are two of the slowest teams in the league and with Washington’s new-found rushing attack, I expect them to work the clock a bit. Washington is just about average against the pass and the low O/U and blowout risk gives Rodgers a low floor.
  12. Patrick Mahomes @ NE – BUST. I don’t think his floor is that low, but it’s pretty obvious how NE is going to approach this game at home. Sony Michel and the running game has looked much better in the past few weeks. The Pats are well aware that their weapons are bad. They are going to try to control the clock and take advantage of a porous KC run D. It will work. They’ll also look to take away Kelce and Hill, and make a RB beat them. Expect light boxes and bracket coverage on Kelce and Hill.
  13. Jameis Winston @ IND – The total in this game opened at 49.5 and has been bet down to just 47. IND D is above average against the pass, but below average against the run. IND is one of the slower teams in the league in neutral game circumstances. Jameis is a turnover machine and this is a spot to be impatient and force things. The D is playing better and the Tampa backs have shown flashes so I expect the game plan to be somewhat conservative.
  14. Ryan Fitzpatrick @ NYJ – The Jets D is terrible and just lost its best player. The Dolphins struggle against good edge rushers and the Jets have none. The Jets have a top-5 run defense and the Dolphins have the worst running game in the NFL. Fitzmagic might have 50+ passing attempts.
  15. Josh Allen – Allen keeps proving people wrong. His rushing production was supposed to be unsustainable (it hasn’t been), and his accuracy flaws were supposed to be his downfall (they haven’t been). Betting against him is tough to do but I have to stay true to my process. He has thrown for less than 200 yards 4 times. His season average is 215.9 yds passing per game. BAL has given up just 109 rushing yds to QBs all year and has the 3rd-best pass D DVOA in the league. Allen has a 2-1 TD-INT ratio and the Ravens have a great secondary. He’ll throw a pick or two in this spot. The Bills D is not good versus the run and the Ravens rarely punt. Possessions will be limited.
  16. Dak Prescott @ CHI – BUST. Raw numbers will like Prescott this week, as he’s been a terrific fantasy QB, and is coming off a very productive game in a difficult matchup. CHI is middle of the pack in RB pts against, but 29th in QB pts against. The O/U is just 43 pts and they’ll be in 30-degree weather with Chicago winds at night. Also, Zeke is due for some positive TD regression and the Bears have given up just 13 passing TDs all year.
  17. Jared Goff vs SEA – Goff had 395 yds passing @ SEA in their first game. 23.75 implied total. SEA has gotten better against the pass since the Diggs trade and Reed came back from suspension, but McVay has had the SEA defenses number since Gurl Harbor in 2017. Seattle is bad against TEs and RBs in the pass game so look for chunks or TDs on playaction and screens.
  18. Derek Carr vs TEN – The Titans are less than 3 pt favorites @ OAK with an O/U of 47. There will be scoring, and Tennessee is very good against the run. However, they give up the 2nd-most receptions to RBs and have a below average pass D. Carr has not been a good fantasy option but his floor in this spot is relatively high. The Titans are also bad against TEs.
  19. Kyler Murray vs PIT – Tough to trust Murray here after a dismal performance at home last week. He’s facing a top-3 DVOA D and top-4 DVOA pass D in PIT, who have the DL and edge players to dominate the bad Cardinals OL. Even more worrisome is the expected PIT gameplan and low 20.5 implied total. Tomlin just wants his QB to not kill them, and they’ll be able to run the ball and control the clock. Murray’s best fantasy games will come in shootouts. This is not one. Expect a Fitzgerald TD (PIT terrible vs the slot), but not much else. His rushing upside keeps him in the top-20.
  20. Russell Wilson @ LAR – The Seahawks OL has quietly become one of the better units in the league. Their rushing attack is legit. Wilson has only eclipsed 250 passing yards or 19 fantasy points ONCE since Week 6 (ridiculous shootout vs TB). Their evolution into a run-heavy offense is working. The Rams give up the 19th-most fantasy points to opposing QBs, and that’s including Lamar Jackson putting up 40+. It’s a tough matchup and a letdown spot for Seattle.
  21. Tom Brady vs KC – Everything about this game points to the Pats working to establish the run and control the clock. KC has the 6th-best pass D DVOA and the 3rd-worst run D DVOA in the league. There is a clip making the rounds where Belichick explains how he uses the strategies from the Art of War – expose opponent weaknesses and protect your own weaknesses. They’re going to feed Sony to not have their receivers exposed and give the Chiefs light boxes to not let Mahomes beat them. 48.5 is a high total but I truly think there will be more rushing TDs than most fantasy players want.
  22. Drew Brees vs SF – Brees has had some head-scratching low-output fantasy performances the past two year, including both Falcons games this year. The Saints are implied to score 23.5 pts, 13th-highest this week. The 49ers have the best pass D DVOA in the NFL and are giving up just 13 fantasy pts per game to QBs. The Saints have three red zone rush TD threats in Kamara, Murray, and Hill. In a game against a stout front, wildcat gets an extra hat in the run game.
  23. Baker Mayfield vs CIN – 41 pt total against a defense that has played better of late. I expect Chubb and Hunt to run all over the Bengals. Besides a 3-TD game against Miami, Mayfield hasn’t been a good fantasy option.
  24. Andy Dalton @ CLE – 16 implied total against a D that has been much better since they got their DBs back. He’ll have to throw a lot so it’s not a terrible spot but it’ll be an uphill battle on the road.
  25. Eli Manning @ PHI – There would be nothing more Eli than to come off the bench and light up the Eagles hideous secondary. His OL is terrible though.
  26. Philip Rivers @ JAC – The Jags rush D is awful so I expect Gordon and Eckeler to do work on the ground. Rumors of being benched is usually not good (see: Nick Foles).
  27. Mitch Trubisky vs DAL – Long week for preparation. He’ll probably score a designed rushing TD but he’s also two picks away from getting benched for good.
  28. Drew Lock @ HOU – The Texans don’t have a great pass D but I don’t think Drew Lock is a good bet to produce well in his first road start. He struggled with pre-snap management and delay of game penalties at Missouri.
  29. Gardner Minshew vs LAC – The Chargers run D is bad but their pass D is good.
  30. David Blough @ MIN – His first start was hilarious. He was ridiculously lucky that the Bears blew coverages and his OL was phenomenal. The NFL is not as easy as it was for him that day.
  31. Duck Hodges @ ARI – Just don’t kill us.
  32. Dwayne Haskins @ GB – Give Guice the ball and get out of the way please.

[Game Preview] Week 13 - Philadelphia Eagles(5-6) vs. Miami Dolphins (2-9)

Philadelphia Eagles (5-6) vs Miami Dolphins(2-9)
The Eagles got a Thanksgiving Day gift from the Bills when they defeated the Cowboys on Thursday to give the Eagles control of their playoff destiny. If the Eagles win out they will win the NFCE and the division for the first time since 2017. The Eagles should have an easy path to win their 5 remaining games as they have the weakest remaining schedule in the league starting with the 2-9 Dolphins. The Dolphins traded away multiple key players this offseason as they looked to stockpile draft picks and build towards the future. With that said, the Dolphins still upset the Jets and Colts in November and are still playing hard for rookie head coach Brian Flores, so the Eagles would be wise not overlook their last remaining non-divisional game of the season. At the helm of the Dolphins is veteran Ryan Fitzpatrick who has had success against the Eagles in the past, including last season when he threw for 402 yards and 4 TDs when he was leading the Buccaneers. Fitzpatricks has two dangerous weapons in speedy WR Devante Parker and big TE Mike Gesicki. The Eagles have been shutting down opposing QBs since week 8, as they have allowed the fewest yards to opposing offenses in that time and the 3rd lowest QB rating. The Dolphins problems will be compounded as they released starting RB Mark Walton on November 19th following his arrest for punching his pregnant girlfriend. On the other side of the ball the Dolphins have had a historically bad defense having surrendered at least 30 points in 7 of their 11 games this season. The Eagles should also get a boost as Brooks, Johnson, Jeffrey and Agholor are all slated to suit up after missing last game week against the Seahawks. The combination should be just want Carson Wentz and the Eagles need to get back on track after dropping back to back games at home. If the Eagles offense can get going early and get Carson in a rhythm, the Eagles should be able to move the ball and up points on a way to win. Go Birds!

Dolphins 20 – Eagles 19
The Eagles jumped out to an early lead and looked prime to take a win, but Sam Bradford left the game with an injured shoulder and Chip Kelly’s defense floundered in the 2nd half are they were left out to dry by the offense. Ryan Tannehill had a deflected pass ended up in the hands of Jarvis Landry for the go-ahead score early in the fourth quarter, and the defense made it hold up to snap Miami's two-game losing streak.

Matchups to Watch
A stoppable force meets a moveable object (Eagles Offense vs Miami Defense)
The Eagles offense has quickly become a garbage tier unit over the course of the season showing it's ugly head in the loss to Seattle last week. It's a bad unit, and Wentz is now playing bad in it. It's not all his fault; for long stretches of the season he was one of the few bright spots on the unit. But he's pressing needing to be perfect to make up for talent and coaching deficits. Philly gets a cupcake matchup against a rebuilding Dolphins defense that is on a historic pace so far this season to end as one of the worst defenses in DVOA history - a total moveable object. This is a get right game for the Eagles, but could be one for the Dolphins defense if Philly isn't careful. Miami is starting a ton of new players throughout the team as well as guys in the secondary that weren't even on the team or in their current position to start the season. While they have a severe lack of talent on the team, they don't lack in effort and coaching. If the Eagles come into this one lacking urgency, they could face a shocking upset. Everyone should expect the Eagles to have an easier time putting up points in this contest even with their struggles given the Dolphins situation it's just a matter of if they do it. Philly should have Brandon Brooks and Lane Johnson for this contest which will help the offense greatly. Alshon may return, but he was scheduled to last week and didn't so who knows. Agholor should return, which is a good thing for Miami. Zach Ertz popped up on the injury report this week with a hamstring injury suffered against the Seahawks; if he isn't able to go for the Eagles, things could get dicey. Ertz is still the Eagles most reliable receiver. Goedert is capable of stepping up into a lead role in the short term but has yet to take a measureable jump forward in his career so far this season. Losing Ertz would be a big blow. Lots of question marks for the Eagles offense in this one, but this is an opponent they should still be able to handle.
Dolphins Offensive Line vs Eagles Pass Rush
The Eagles pass rush has been steadily improving this season and is coming off one of their best games of the season last week against Seattle. This isn't a unit that is as good as its 2017 version, but is still a unit that can wreck a game. As mentioned previously, Miami is going through a total rebuild, and the offensive line hasn't been spared in that tear down. Stud Left Tackle Laremy Tunsil was traded to Houston prior to the start of the season. The Dolphins didn't have anyone else close that level of talent on the offensive line and the unit is now considerably weaker. The coaching staff on this Dolphins team has done an incredible job this year in spite of the tank, but sometimes pure talent wins out. Philly's defensive line, lead by Fletcher Cox, should be able to cause a lot of disruption this week. Miami enters with one of the worst rushing attacks in the NFL. Part of that is due to their RBs, but a big reason for that is due to their offensive line. Jim Schwartz loves to take away an opponents run game and should be able to do that from the start on Sunday. Philly's defensive front has always been great at defending the run and should be expected to again on Sunday. Against the pass, the Eagles should be expected to win here as well. Per PFF, Miami has the worst offensive line by Pass Blocking Efficiency in the NFL. Cox, Graham, and the rest of the bunch, should be able to get a lot of pressure on Fitz in this contest.
Dolphins Receivers vs Eagles Secondary
Philadelphia's pass defense has been better of late largely due to getting healthy for the time since the Hoover Administration. I do think a lot of praise the secondary is getting is off the mark since receivers are still getting open and mistakes are still being made, but the entire unit as a whole has done enough to win... more than the offense can say. Miami is short on weapons but does have players that can make plays if the Eagles aren't careful. DeVante Parker is having the best season of his career so far, which is hilarious given the current state of the Dolphins roster. While he isn't a top flight receiver, he can make plays on the ball. He's athletic enough to burn Jalen Mills (who isn't?) and has ball skills that Darby could only dream of. Even during this good defensive stretch by the Eagles, we've seen this secondary get beat. Parker is more than capable of making plays against this secondary. Albert Wilson is a gadget receiver but typically really good in his career of creating after the catch. While that hasn't been the case this year for him, it only takes one mistake for him to capitalize. Overall, this is a weak group of receivers the Dolphins have, just like the rest of their roster. But considering the state of said roster, they are well coached and play very hard. We've seen Ryan Fitzpatrick torch this Eagles defense as early as last year; this is a matchup the Eagles should be expected to win but they must show up for it. I have little doubt about the defenses ability to do just that - compared to the offense - but we've seen this team do inexplicably dumb things this year.
