Pete Carroll: Richard Sherman ruptured his Achilles’ tendon. Out for the 12 months. #Seahawks @thenewstribune https://t.co/qmX32MPrhU
Looking at a working again, Adrian Peterson of the Cardinals may solely muster up 29 dashing yards on 21 carries. It’s confirmed: so long as Drew Stanton is the quarterback, it will be extraordinarily troublesome for Peterson to get something going.
Here’s a have a look at the remainder of this week’s matchups. We will look at the chances and fantasy stars from every sport. All odds are courtesy of OddsShark.
New York Jets (-2.5) at Tampa Bay Buccaneers (43.5)
Josh McCown. Ryan Fitzpatrick. Go get your tickets now.
Well, truly, McCown has truly been good this 12 months, so I take that again.
However, the storylines listed below are the Fitzpatrick #RevengeGame and Mike Evans being suspended. With that mentioned, the Bucs will not win this sport. The Jets protection is sweet sufficient to drive Fitzpatrick right into a little bit of bother, coupled with the McCown pbading prowess (loopy to be saying that also).
The Bucs usually are not a superb soccer workforce, particularly with out Evans.
Jets on the street.
Pick: Jets 24, Buccaneers 17
Fantasy Star: Josh McCown
Pittsburgh Steelers (-10) at Indianapolis Colts (45)
The poor Colts.
Just going by the Steelers being 10-point favorites, you understand who’s going to win. For betting functions, it is only a matter of by how a lot.
The Steelers offense goes to be troublesome for the Colts protection, and the Colts offense goes to have a tough time with the Steelers protection. Should the Colts be down by a large margin, this might drive quarterback Jacoby Brissett to need to make performs, and that might go within the Steelers favor.
Steelers win huge.
Pick: Steelers 30, Colts 14
Fantasy Star: Le’Veon Bell
New Orleans Saints (-Three) at Buffalo Bills (46.5)
Circle the wagons!
Coming off a troublesome Week 9 loss to the Jets, the Bills will attempt to bounce again as they host the Saints, a workforce on a six-game profitable streak, in Week 10.
The Bills are undefeated at dwelling. The protection goes to be one of many tougher items for the Saints and quarterback Drew Brees to deal with.
The Bills offense is stable sufficient, too, and the addition of huge receiver Kelvin Benjamin can solely badist. Yes, the Saints protection has been darn good this season, however I am going to aspect with the house workforce.
The Bills win this one as the house underdog.
Pick: Bills 21, Saints 19
Fantasy Star: LeSean McCoy
Green Bay Packers at Chicago Bears (-6, 38)
With Brett Hundley at quarterback, I’ve acquired zero confidence within the Packers. They’re simply not any good with him.
The Bears do not precisely have a prolific offense both, however between the working sport from Jordan Howard and Tarik Cohen, in addition to a protection that ought to stress Hundley all afternoon lengthy, I am unable to envision a situation the place the Packers win or cowl.
The Bears protection ought to have a superb day attending to Hundley. Whether that interprets to fantasy factors stays to be seen.
Pick: Bears 23, Packers 14
Fantasy Star: Bears D/ST
Minnesota Vikings (-1.5) at Washington Redskins (42.5)
This is a bizarre sport. The Vikings have performed nicely this 12 months due to the unsuspecting Case Keenum. Of course, Stefon Diggs, Adam Thielen and (since Dalvin Cook went down) Jerick McKinnon badist, however who thought this might occur?
The Vikings protection will inevitably shut down the Redskins working sport. With that mentioned, the Redskins working sport is so unhealthy they could simply shut themselves down.
For the Redskins, their pbading badault is all over.
With a 1.5-point unfold, I am snug going with the street workforce right here. The Redskins will not be capable to run, and the Vikings secondary is sweet sufficient to include a Redskins pbading badault that could be a forged of randomness on a week-to-week foundation.
Pick: Vikings 23, Redskins 21
Fantasy Star: Stefon Diggs
Los Angeles Chargers at Jacksonville Jaguars (-Four, 41)
The Chargers are heading east for a 1 p.m. kickoff in opposition to the Jaguars.
We understand how that often goes for the west coast groups.
Either manner, the Chargers offense has some weapons, however the Jaguars protection is so good that it will not matter. The Chargers offensive line can have bother in opposition to the move rush, the pbading sport can have a tough time getting going in opposition to Jalen Ramsey and A.J. Bouye, and Melvin Gordon will wrestle to get going in any respect.
Jaguars by a landing.
Pick: Jaguars 27, Chargers 20
Fantasy Star: Leonard Fournette
Cleveland Browns at Detroit Lions (-11, 43.5)
It’s the Browns. Give me a break.
Lions by two or extra possessions.
Pick: Lions 31, Browns 14
Fantasy Star: Golden Tate
Cincinnati Bengals at Tennessee Titans (-5, 40.5)
Avoiding suspension, the Bengals can have A.J. Green at their disposal on the street in opposition to the Titans.
Coming off a loss on the Jaguars, the Bengals will attempt to enhance their dismal street file (1-Three).
I am going to simply lower to the chase: the Titans have the weapons edge right here, despite the fact that the Bengals have Green. This may very well be the sport the place we see extra of rookie Corey Davis, too.
Titans security Kevin Byard has been a difference-maker as of late, and he’ll play a job right here.
It’s laborious to belief the Bengals on the street. The Titans have not been enjoying in addition to all of us thought they’d, however they pull out the win right here.
Pick: Titans 26, Bengals 18
Fantasy Star: Corey Davis
Houston Texans at Los Angeles Rams (-12, 46.5)
Like the Steelers/Colts, the Rams will win, however by how a lot?
Well, I am going to inform you this: it is going to be by greater than 12. The Texans offense is horrendous with Tom Savage beneath middle, and the Rams have among the best offenses within the league in opposition to a Texans protection that’s significantly deteriorated because the starting of the season.
This may get ugly.
Pick: Rams 44, Texans 17
Fantasy Star: Robert Woods
Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons (-Three, 48)
Believe it or not, the Cowboys will truly be with out Ezekiel Elliott this week. He has to start serving his suspension.
That modifications issues right here for the Cowboys, however they nonetheless have a secure of working backs which are serviceable.
However, the Falcons playcalling leaves quite a bit to be desired. Heck, Julio Jones has only one landing this season.
Even with out Zeke, this sport may very well be fairly excessive scoring. Both groups are inclined to each the move and run, however the run sport for the Falcons carries them right here.
Pick: Falcons 27, Cowboys 23
Fantasy Star: Devonta Freeman
New York Giants (-Three) at San Francisco 49ers (41.5)
For the beat writers of each of those groups sake, hopefully the 49ers and Levi’s Stadium has a pleasant catering space. This goes to be a snoozer.
This goes to be loads of unhealthy soccer being performed. Could we see the Giants go along with Davis Webb right here?
With Jenkins again, he makes the secondary higher, so I am going to go along with the Giants, I badume.
Pick: Giants 21, 49ers 16
Fantasy Star: Carlos Hyde (and I do not be ok with this)
New England Patriots (-Eight) at Denver Broncos (45.5)
This is the primary time in a very long time I have been badured in a street workforce in opposition to a workforce just like the Broncos giving up eight-points.
The Broncos offense stinks with Brock Osweiler. The move protection is not as infamous because it as soon as was. With that mentioned, the move rush and run protection ought to be their regular dominant self. Fortunately, the Patriots may care much less a few working sport.
Not to say the Broncos cannot defend tight ends.
Hello, Rob Gronkowski.
Patriots by quite a bit.
Pick: Patriots 33, Broncos 14
Fantasy Star: Rob Gronkowski
Miami Dolphins at Carolina Panthers (-9, 38)
Another horrible prime-time soccer sport, everybody.
I am not badured in Cam Newton, however the Dolphins offense isn’t a unit I can belief, both. What they did in opposition to the Oakland Raiders was an anomaly.
Jay Cutler looks like a cool man, however he is not the most effective quarterback.
Proceed with warning right here. Don’t wager, but when I’ve to decide on…
Pick: Panthers 24, Dolphins 14
Fantasy Star: Devin Funchess
