The Biggest Disappointment Of The Week
This is a Matthew Stafford #RevengeGame, but punishing a Lions defense that is allowing an NFL-high 14.5 yards per completion requires no added motivation. Woods has 64-plus yards and/or a TD in five of six games and is viable in cash games due to his mid-range price tag. Remove two games against the elite run defense of the Saints and Bucs in which he totaled 10 yards on 10 carries, and Damien Harris is averaging 17.8 carries for 80.3 yards and 0.75 TDs per game. He’s a high-ceiling, low-floor GPP option against a Jets defense that has been mediocre at defending the run . Rookie Rhamondre Stevenson’s long-term arrow is pointing upward after playing a combined 40 snaps over the past two weeks, but there are better options outside of Showdown slates. This is a matchup of two bad defenses, but the Falcons should have the superior offense.
Carolina Panthers Over The New York Giants
They decided to go for the win and the two-point conversion, but the attempt was not successful. The over is a perfect 5-0 for New Orleans, as the Saints have scored 24 or more points in all five outings and 30 or more in four of those games. Their offense should also be helped with the return of Michael Thomas. As of right now, we don’t know if he will play here, but I would assume so with the team coming off their bye.
Denver Broncos At Cincinnati Bengals
This year, the 4-9 Broncos will travel to face the 3-10 Colts at Lucas Oil Stadium in Indianapolis. Regardless of who plays quarterback for Green Bay, he will have to deal with one of the league’s better defenses. The Vikings are second in the NFL in points against giving up just 17.3 per game. In three of their last four wins, Minnesota has given up nine points or less.
The Eagles allowed just one sack on Carson Wentz this week, and we need not remind you of just how lethal Carolina’s pass-rush can be with Luke Kuechly across the line of scrimmage. Fans in London didn’t get much bang for their buck last week during the Seahawks/Raiders blowout, but unfortunately, there might be more bad news -Tennessee are coming to town. The Broncos found themselves in a similar situation to Arizona last week, tasked with taking down the Rams at home. Despite Denver’s four-game skid, their defence hasn’t been altogether bad, especially in the air – they’ve allowed the 10th fewest points per game via the pass this season. In their defence, if Arizona were any chance of beating Minnesota on the road they’d have to be prepared for a full on shootout against one of the best passing attacks in the league. And in case you haven’t been watching, that was always a tall order considering Josh Rosen has struggled to turn conversions into points this year.
According to Awesemo’s Player Props Tool, Edmonds is projected to run for 55.5 yards in this matchup with an 86% expected win rate and 64% expected return on investment. In addition, nine different running backs have rushed for 30+ yards against the Texans. At Bovada Sportsbook, the Titans are 5.5-point home underdogs. The Titans were 6-point home underdogs last week in their win over the Bills. With the win, Tennessee improved to 4-1 straight up and against the spread in its last five games, and as a home underdog the Titans are 4-5 SU and ATS in their last nine.
They finished second during the regular season giving up just 80.2 yards rushing per game. Since Week 7 of the regular season, New Orleans is allowing just 16.9 points per game. They have also sacked opposing quarterbacks 28 times and that includes putting up zero in the win over Nick Foles and Philadelphia last week. The Rams were second in the league in total offense putting up 421.1 yards of offense per game. Running back Todd Gurley rushed for 1,251 yards and 17 touchdowns and missed the last two regular season games.
