Jets @ Bills
Sheldon Richardson Gone, two starting NT, David Harris, All missing this year
Zay Jones, son of Cowboys LB Robert Jones, Career College leaders in Receptions.
Charles Clay, best familiarity with Taylor to start.
Jets, ArDarius Stewart, Kearse, Kerley and Anderson are Jets WR’s, Stewart is inactive today.
Jets w/ Points, possibly over
Eagles @ Skins
Eagles Secondary ton of ? Marks, 1 of 3 teams to allow 3,000 yards to WR’s
Skins allowed 2nd most yards to TE’s last year- Ertz
RB situation unclear, stay away this week.
Skins – the points.
Raiders @ Titans
Raiders 5th worst against Tight Ends, Delanie Walker good play.
Texans @ Jags
Hopkins 11 catches for 120 yds in 2 games with Savage last year
Cards @ Lions
David Johnson all day
Carson Palmer Strong play
Fitz will be facing off against 5’9 Quandre Diggs, who he should abuse.
Cards allowed fewest rec yds to RB’s last year.
Cards allowed 2nd fewest yards and catches to Tight Ends, only Two TE’s. Mathieu, Peterson, etc
Cards – the points.
Falcons @ Bears
Bears Underatted D
Howard a solid play
Ravens @ Bengals
Bengals RB Coach Kyle Caskey promised hot hand, Mixon has the best shot to get that hot hand and ride with it.
AJ Green has a history of torching the Ravens
Eifert has 100 yds 2 TDs in last 2 meetings. Is he healthy?
Flacco out all preseason and camp, little rapport with Maclin. Woodhead off ACL, Terrance West? JAvoirus Allen? Ehhhh.
Bengals – the points
Steelers @ Browns
Corey Coleman only Brown I trust, should get heavy usage, will get open, Kizer can get him the ball.
Pitt, Bell, Brown, Ben, Bryant.
Steelers by 4
Colts @ Rams
Gurley Good Matchup,
Cooper Kupp Solid chemistry and play.
Rams – the points
Seattle @ Packers
Seattle D gets a bump with Sheldon Richardson,
Cobb is healthy and coming off a solid playoffs. Has best matchup here vs Jeremy Lane.
Wilson played with a Torn MCL and High Ankle Sprain last year. He is healthy now and will bounce back, offensive line is still a concern. But doesn’t have good success vs Pack.
Doug Baldwin has good success, Only start I trust, possibly Richardson for cheap play in DFS. Or Prosise.
Panthers @ SF
McCaffrey not a great RB2 play in first game, Panthers should still use Stewart and will be able to control game and pound Stewart. However both are solid flex plays this week.
Olsen and Benjamin look like solid plays. Cam also looks solid.
Carlos Hyde looks solid, outside of that, possibly Garcon. Don’ trust Marquise Goodwin.
Gmen @ Cowboys
Gmen Held Zeke to 150 yds and 1 TD in 2 games. Zeke still must be started.
Dak Struggled, Bryant struggled also, just 20 yds in 2 games. Janoris Jenkins shut him Down, DMC shut down Beasley. Cowboys lost twice last year, no doubt Garrett will make some adjustmetns here, maybe he starts moving Dez Around.
Witten has the most success vs the Gmen.
Beckham very ??, Running game ehh. Brandon Marshall? Eh, Don’t trust any Giants, See a lower scoring game.
New Orleans @ Minny
NO allowed 2nd most Rec yards to backs last year. Cook looks like solid play.
Don’t trust Diggs with Bradford, Trust Theilen way more, especially now in the slot.
Rudolph also a decent play.
Not Crazy about Saints backs.
Michael Thomas lined up with Xavier Rhodes. Rhodes had a 47.0 Passer rating allowed, Best in NFL last year
Ted Ginn looks like a good play here with a good matchup on turf.
TommyLee Lewis is interesting, Originally undrafted two years ago, Recommended by Bill Parcells to Sean Payton. Someone to eye at WR for NO.
Chargers @ Denver
Rivers terrible last year vs Denver, Allen tough matchup, Tyrel Williams tough matchup. Melvin Gordon only really solid play.
Henry n Gates still offset each other.
Bad Matchups with Sanders and Thomas vs Heyward and Jason Verrett.
CJ Anderson decent, but how much does Jamaal Charles play? Maybe he takes the job!!!!
