I didn't ask why people bet on Cowboys games. I don't get why people consistently talk themselves into taking them against the spread. Look at this thread. It was the same last year. Just... stop trying to kick that football, Charlie Brown.

Obviously now that they're the Dalton Cowboys people are going to be less inclined to bet on them, although to be honest I don't know that it makes that big a difference. With Dak they were about a 7-9, 8-8 team and I think that's probably about what they'll end up being with Dalton.

Help me out! I'm considering picking the 0-5 Giants in my survivor pool.

I have used the Bills, Bucs, Colts, Ravens and Steelers. The Chargers, Raiders, Saints and Seahawks are on byes.

KC is playing Buffalo - so not gonna look at KC.
Green Bay is playing Tampa - so not gonna look at GB.

Rams/Niners is division weird, injuries, and I don't fully trust the Rams.
Titans/Texans - is TN coming off of Covid and playing tonight, so...prefer not to pick that game.
Not picking the Browns over the Steelers.
Not picking the Eagles over the Ravens.
Not picking NE's COVID weirdness over the Broncos, I'd also like to save NE for later.
I would prefer to avoid picking the Vikings/Falcons game - Atlanta coming off a coach change and MN without Cook.
I'm not taking the Bengals over the Colts.
I guess I could consider picking the Panthers over the Bears but...I guess I don't trust Carolina yet.

That leaves three games.

I would prefer to stay away from picking the Dolphins because they really do lay the weird eggs in these kind of games, and it's a division game, but that is still on my list. Lions /Jags - DJ Chark prob out, Lions off a bye, that's on my list too.



So it's the Giants!

Why would you waste your pick on that?

Miami has basically no future value after this week. Take them. Or the Lions.

Also Minny would be fine. Their backup RB was running fine last week. ATL is a tire fire.

Rams are probably an easy take this week too. They rolling and SF is hot garbage with their injuries.

I would take the Vikings. They looked really quite good for most of the game on Sunday. Even without Cook they moved the ball.

I have switched to the Dolphins for now. Just feels weird to let it ride on Fitzpatrick

That is a reasonable play. Everyone should be able to beat the Jets. I actually picked up Fitzpatrick for my fantasy team this week as my qb is on a bye week.

I went 2-3 last week, bringing me to 18-21 on the year. Spreadsheet pulled a 6-7-1 to bring it to 37-31-9 for the year.

I'm on a lot of games this week, which usually means I'm about to get my ass kicked.

TB ML
TEN -3.5
IND -8
MIN -4
BAL -7.5
JAX +3
PIT -3.5
SF +3.5
