A big bye week around the NFL leads to havoc for fantasy football owners and less games to choose from on the Board. Vegas continues to make life difficult with some very big spreads.
Baltimore (-3) over CINCINNATI - I'm really still not a believer in the Bengals. And last week the Ravens showed that when they're on, they're very tough to beat.
Detroit (+10) over SEATTLE - The Seahawks aren't good enough to give 10 points to anyone.
INDIANAPOLIS (-9) over Houston - The Colts are the quietest 7-0 team I've ever seen.
NY GIANTS (-4.5) over San Diego - This is close to a must-win for the Giants after dropping 3 straight.
PHILADELPHIA (-3) over Dallas - The Eagles look really good.
I hope I can get some positive traction since Brien seems to refuse to run away with this.
PHILADELPHIA (-3) over Dallas - There is just too much dissension in Dallas for a tough road trip.
NEW ENGLAND (-10.5) over Miami - Brady is catching fire.
Hoping Brien pays as much attention to his fantasy team this week as he did his picks last week... Let me try to snap my losing streak by going with all home teams.
CINCINNATI (+3) over Baltimore - "Signs point to yes." (Bengals will beat the spread)
Arizona (+3) over CHICAGO - "No." (Bears won't beat the spread)
Detroit (+10) over SEATTLE - "My answer is no." (Seahawks won't beat the spread)
SAN FRANCISCO (-4.5) over Tennessee - "My sources say yes." (49ers will beat the spread)
It's not often you can go 1-4 and still gain ground. Here's hoping we all do better this week.
Green Bay (-9.5) over TAMPA BAY - The Bucs are almost as bad as they were when they wore the orange unis.
SEATTLE (-10) over Detroit - If the Lions can lose to the Rams, they can definitely lose in Seattle by 10.
SAN FRAN (-4.5) over Tenn - One week is not enough to make me think the Titans are decent again.
ATLANTA (-10) over Washington - Picking against the Skins has been pretty consistently a good idea this year.
Houston (+9) over INDIANAPOLIS - The Colts have a minimal home field advantage in their new stadium and the loss of Sanders is huge. Also, the Texans are quietly a decent team.
Brien: PHI, NYG, IND, DET, BAL
Jason: PHI, NYG, PIT, NE, BAL
Jeremy: CHI, CIN, IND, SEA, SF
