The Browns have begun their winning streak with a win last week. And, the Steelers have already clenched their division title. Don’t be surprised to see a Browns’ victory today. I expect the Steelers to be taking it easy and give the Browns an opportunity to earn another victory. This will be sweet for the Browns since they are playing in Steeler territory.
This is a insignificant game for the Patriots and the Dolphins…both teams are already in the playoffs. These teams are playing for bragging rights more than anything today.
Good Game, Big Rivalry
This game includes one of the biggest rivalries, Giants vs Redskins, in the history of the league. Even though the Giants have secured their playoff position this is going to be one of the best games played today.
Vikings Looking To Get Even
The Bears are at 3-12 but, they beat the Vikings earlier in the season. I expect Minnesota to take revenge today.
Cowboys Have The Advantage
Not much anxiety for the Cowboys since they have the NFC best record this season. They will also enjoy a home field advantage throughout the playoffs with a 12-2 advantage.
The Lions need to have this victory going in to the final game of the season since it will deterime who will have the wild card berth between the Packers and the Lions.
I think the Cowboys will generate the bulk of the fantasy points.
Playoff Preparation For Steelers and Ravens
In order for the Ravens to reach the playoffs, this is a must win game. Look for these two teams to score points but, mainly by running the football rather than “airing it out”. Both teams have good defenses and they are getting ready for playoff action.
Fireworks of the week! Buccaneers at the Saints is a game of importance only for the Bucs. Look for this to be a offensive fireworks display in the fantasy league.
We’ve got the Giants at the Eagles tonight! The Giants are trying to hold on to a slim chance of winning the NFC East. The Eagles, who are already out of the playoffs, will probably take more chances to beat the Giants than at any other time this season. The Giants have swept the Cowboys, this year and the Eagles want to be able to spoil the Giant’s hopes of winning the NFC East. The home field advantage will be, just that, an advantage for the Eagles over the Giants. As the under dogs, the Eagles have nothing to lose. They would like nothing more than to spoil the Giants NFC East title run….because of their big rivalry. As far as fantasy points…both teams are capable but, because it is a divisioal game between rivalries I don’t expect a whole lot of offense for these teams because they both a very defensive mindset.
Panthers Still Have Fireworks Left in ‘Em
After coming off of a disappointing effort to replicate their run to the Super Bowl last year, and falling short this season, this has to be very disappointing to a young Carolina Panther football team. The Washington Redksins are still in the play off hunt and if they can win out they will more than likely get a wild card berth. The Redskins have played very good football with Kirk Cousins and the receiving core. Washington also plays good defense! But, I think that if Carolina, can get some people back…especially linebacker Luke Kuechly, this could be a heartbreaker for the Redskins. The Panthers still have the fireworks offensively but, they have not played to their potential. So, barring turnovers, this could be very well be a shoot out between the Panthers and the Redskins.
Cowboys Need To Bounce Back
The Cowboys have clenched a playoff berth but they are trying to stay focused in order to have the home field advantage in the NFC playoffs. Tampa Bay has been playing very good football over the last five or six games and to get a victory in this game would be an opportuniity to make some noise on thier way to the playoffs.
Look for Dak Prescott to have a much better performance today as opposed to his performance against the Giants. There are some good fantasy players on both teams today. Look out for Dez Bryant and Ezekiel Elliott for the Cowboys and Jameis Winston and Mike Evans with Tampa Bay.
