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.
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.
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.
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.
The Colts have a very slim chance of making it to the playoffs. What we have here with the Vikings and the Colts are two teams that have to win-out to have a chance…although slim…of making it to the playoffs this year. Look for this game to be a very intense competition because one loss and you are out, with the way that the play off picture is coming down to the wire.
This is a very important game for both teams especially since the Lions are leading in the NFC North. The Giants are coming off a big victory against the Cowboys and with a win at the Giant’s stadium that could possibly give them a playoff berth.
Look for this to be a fairly exciting game for the fantasy players with the way the Lions have come back and won in the fourth quarter. Look out for the Giants offense…and their outstanding top three receivers in the fantasy field.
Even though the Broncos won the last season’s championship, this game against the Patriots is going to be a challenge. The Patriots can run and throw. And, they have given up the fewest amount of points in the league, just behind the Vikings. The only advantage that the Broncos have is that they will be playing at home and this is a big game for them. Especially if they want to make it to the playoffs. Look for the Patriots to put the ball in a bunch of receivers hands. Whereas the Broncos do not that strong of a passing game.
I think that turnovers are going to play the biggest part of this matchup.
This is a must win game for the Dolphins to enhance their chances of making it to the playoffs. This is an opportunity for the Jets to spoil the Dolphins season. The trouble is both of them are playing with backup quarterbacks. This is a long standing rivalry between these two teams. So I feel, that the game is going to be on the shoulders of the two backup quarterbacks. The Dolphins are favored over the Jets but, the Jets would like nothing more than to knock the Dolphins out of their playoff opportunity. The Dolphins have the defensive advantage but, it will all come down to the quarterback’s talents.
