Raiders: The Cowboys defense loves giving up yards and points so there’s hope at least.
Bills: As noted above, the Falcons are mostly going through the motions at this point, good news for the Bills
Chiefs: In the immortal words of Dennis Green “They are who we thought they were!!!”
Lions: Stafford owners should cross their fingers and hope that last week was just a hiccup.
Ravens: Usually a big grudge match, this might turn into a massive snooze fest.
Titans: This is not the same Colts team as earlier in the season, I actually think the Titans put up some points.
Browns: Love Gordon and Jordan.
Colts: Donald Brown has become a safe fantasy play. Playoff teams with Luck may want to consider their backups.
Buccaneers: Not the week to tie your playoff performance to a Buc.
Vikings: It’s AP or bust.
Bears: It’s every Bear or bust.
Saints: Tough matchup, but you have to roll with your studs from this team. Try Pierre Thomas as a flex.
Jaguars: Outside of MJD there’s not much to like.
Jets: “These are not the fantasy players you’re looking for… move along.”.
Seahawks: Wilson, Tate and Lynch.
Steelers: Ride the hot hands, Brown and Miller.
Cardinals: Holy flashbacks Batman! It was a Larry Fitzgerald sighting. I actually like Floyd (if healthy) and Fitzgerald against the Eagles.
Team Snyder: Turmoil is brewing and the Giants are playing better. Kirk Cousins may enter the game at some point.
Packers: Crazy things happen on Thanksgiving Day games and Flynn looked ok. Roll with your Packers.
Panthers: Bucs are still playing hard but it should be smooth sailing for Cam.
Cowboys: The points are coming, enjoy an early present.
49ers: Hallelujah! Michael Crabtree has been activated and will play this week. Colin Kaepernick’s face just lit up like Chevy Chase’s when
his house’s Christmas lights finally turned on.
Bengals: Coming off a bye, which hopefully gave the offense time to clear their heads, you can resume using Gio and AJ.
Broncos: Manning’s arm looked cooked in cold weather last year and now this year. Not surprisingly, the Broncos gave a heavy dose of Moreno
and some of Ball. Expect the same this week.
Texans: I don’t like the odds for this team this week. AJ owners may want to rely on him only as a flex play.
Dolphins: Their inconsistency week to week is what could destroy your playoffs.
Chargers: Key injuries to the defense mean the Chiefs may be in a deep hole, which oddly, is when Alex Smith plays his best.
Eagles: Nick Foles and, more importantly, Riley Cooper have not faced a defense as tough as the Cardinals. Expect them to struggle.
Falcons: Some times the Bills defense shows up, sometimes it doesn’t. Take your chances if you like to gamble.
Rams: Hmm, probably worth skipping any player not named Stacy and even he should have a down week.
Giants: Woohoo, the D.C. men are in town, time for an offense to explode!
Patriots: As noted above, I feel the Patriots will do well this week, through the air, Bill is still throwing a tantrum at his runningbacks.
TRIVIA QUESTION: In honor of Thanksgiving, name the first balloon ever flown in the Macy’s Thanksgiving Day Parade and its fate and name the two innocent balloons that were stabbed to death.
First one with the correct answer gets a cookie the next time they come visit me in Norristown.
Good luck in you’re the playoffs!
