Dallas Cowboys Offense Vs. Detroit Lions

Dallas CowboysThe Lions are banged up on the defensive side, to the point they are just getting shredded on a weekly basis now. While Darius Slay is back, the front seven has taken a hit and Tracy Walker is dealing with a knee injury. Detroit has allowed three 20+ fantasy point games to opposing backs in the last five weeks. Jamaal Williams almost made that four with 19.6 fantasy points. Only two backs against Detroit have scored less than 15 fantasy points. Ezekiel Elliott steps in this week in a great matchup. We should see the true upside of Zeke this week. It doesn’t end with the run game, as the Lions have allowed 26.6 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks over the last five weeks, which is the 5th most. On the season, Detroit has allowed the 7th most. Wide receivers have had success of course, as Detroit are allowing the 8th most fantasy points per game to wide receivers in the last five games. They have allowed the 10th most on the season. Amari Cooper finds his way on the injury report each week, but still plays. Both him and Michael Gallup are in strong positions than usual.

Baltimore Ravens Pass Offense Vs. Houston Texans

Baltimore RavensProbably do not need me to tell you that the Ravens and Lamar Jackson are good. But they are in another prime spot against the Texans defense. Their secondary was questionable heading into the season, injuries have played a part, but overall this is not a good pass defense. Houston has allowed the 4th most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers. Over the last four games they have allowed 741 receiving yards and seven touchdowns to receivers. For the most part tight ends have struggled against Houston, but Mark Andrews can still exploit this defense. Opposing quarterbacks are averaging the 6th most fantasy points per game against Houston, and Jackson continues to be a stud. Houston ranks 19th against the pass, and 5th against the run. With Marquise Brown back and looking healthy again, this is a tremendous spot for the Ravens passing game options.

Oakland Raiders Offense Vs. Cincinnati Bengals

Oakland RaidersOakland has proven to be able to take advantage of some weaker defenses. Josh Jacobs is a standout back to me this week, already on his way to a rookie of the year award. This is another strong spot where he can add to his rookie season. Cincinnati ranks 29th against the run, and running backs have had a field day. For one they are always in a positive game script, and that should be the case for Jacobs. The Bengals have allowed the 4th most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season. Jacobs is averaging 4.8 yards per attempt and is averaging 20.2 touches per game on the season. As far as the passing game goes, we can look at Darren Waller, Tyrell Williams, and Derek Carr. All three are in good spots this week. Carr isn’t airing it out much, but has been efficient in the short game. Williams has been touchdown dependent, but Cincinnati ranks ranks 30th against the run, and are allowing the 7th most fantasy points per game over the last five weeks. They have also struggled against tight ends as over the last five weeks the Bengals are allowing 10.4 fantasy points per game to tight ends.

Los Angeles Chargers Run Game Vs. Kansas City Chiefs

Los Angeles ChargersI talked about the Chiefs run defense last week, and Derrick Henry exposed them. The Chiefs have allowed the second most fantasy points per game to opposing running backs this season, just behind Detroit. The Chiefs have allowed 30+ fantasy point games three times this season. Five running backs have had 100+ yards against the Chiefs this season, and it should be six given Josh Jacobs had 99 yards. Football Outsiders has Kansas City ranked 28th against the run so far this season. Melvin Gordon looked like Melvin Gordon last week, and his touches were there. He rushed for 108 yards on 22 touches, and his lone catch went for 25 yards. Austin Ekeler had just eight touches, going for 48 yards and a touchdown. Not bad, and both have standalone value this week.

New England Patriots Pass Offense Vs. Philadelphia Eagles

New England PatriotsIf you are a wise team, you are throwing the ball against the Eagles. Especially with a below average efficiency back so far this season like Sony Michel. The Patriots offensive line isn’t also as good. Philly ranks 16th against the pass, which is generous in my opinion, but rank 7th against the run. They are allowing the eighth fewest fantasy points to opposing backs, but we can jump to the passing game. The Eagles are allowing 22.2 fantasy points per game to opposing quarterbacks this season, and the 5th most fantasy points per game to opposing wide receivers (27.4). Tom Brady, Julian Edelman, and Mohamed Sanu make up the bulk of fantasy points within the passing game, and I like them here against the Eagles.
