How is there only one more week of fantasy football before the playoffs start? While this season has been a roller coaster ride, there have been a lot of great moments as well. Though we’re without the Buccaneers and Panthers this week, it’ll be very interesting to see which players can push our teams into the fantasy football playoffs!

New Orleans at Atlanta
Can Taysom Hill make it three in a row? The Falcons defense looked pretty formidable last week vs. the Raiders, so this could be a trap game for the Saints. It’ll be interesting to see if Atlanta finds a way to counter the ground game of the Saints, as we saw last week that Hill’s passing isn’t exactly world-class. If Julio Jones and Todd Gurley are active, the Falcons offense could look pretty good too.
✔ Starts: Latavius Murray, Emmanuel Sanders, Hayden Hurst
✘ Sits: Taysom Hill, Jared Cook
Detroit at Chicago
This is a must-win for the Bears if they have any hope of making the playoffs. While Detroit did just fire Matt Patricia, expecting them to roll over would be a mistake. I’m sure the Lions will be out to spoil the Bears season with a win this week, even if Kenny Golladay remains sidelined.
✔ Starts: D’Andre Swift, David Montgomery, Mitchell Trubisky, Jimmy Graham, Darnell Mooney
✘ Sits: Marvin Jones, Anthony Miller
Indianapolis at Houston
The Colts will need to get right with a division win this week. For Jonathan Taylor’s sake, a run-heavy approach should be the plan of action, given Houston’s struggles in this area.
✔ Starts: Brandin Cooks, Jonathan Taylor, Nyheim Hines, Michael Pittman, Keke Coutee
✘ Sits: T.Y Hilton, Duke Johnson, Jack Doyle
Cincinnati at Miami
The Dolphins defense should have itself a day in this one. Expect a big game on the ground from Miami, as well.
✔ Starts: Myles Gaskin, Devante Parker, Mike Gesicki, Tee Higgins
✘ Sits: A.J Green, Drew Sample
Jacksonville at Minnesota (3CoSports Game of the Week)
I really like everyone involved in this game.
Am I really going to sit Kyler Murray for Kirk Cousins for this must win game? Absolutley.

✔ Starts: Everyone
✘ Sits: Maybe Tyler Eifert
Las Vegas at New York Jets
If the Raiders lose this one I don’t even know what to say.
✔ Starts: Denzel Mims, Jamison Crowder, Breshad Perriman, Frank Gore, Nelson Agholor, Derek Carr
✘ Sits: Sam Darnold, Henry Ruggs
Cleveland at Tennessee
If Cleveland wins this game they might actually be a contender. That’s why I’d bet on the Titans moneyline.
✔ Starts: Ryan Tannehill, Jonnu Smith, Jarvis Landry, Austin Hooper
✘ Sits: Baker Mayfield, Corey Davis
Los Angeles Rams at Arizona
With DeAndre Hopkins shadowed by Jalen Ramsay, it’ll be on Christian Kirk and Andy Isabella to get this Cardinals offense firing.
✔ Starts: Andy Isabella, Christian Kirk, Jared Goff, Darrell Henderson
✘ Sits: Cam Akers, Kenyan Drake, Chase Edmonds
New York Giants at Seattle
The Giants will be without Daniel Jones. But is that such a bad thing?
✔ Starts: Sterling Sheperd, Wayne Gallman
✘ Sits: Golden Tate, Will Dissly
Philadelphia at Green Bay
Will the Eagles finally turn the tide? The Packers haven’t been the most steady team this season so an upset could be brewing.
✔ Starts: Dallas Goedert, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, Robert Tonyan
✘ Sits: Travis Fulgham, Jalen Reagor
New England at Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers are the superior team here by a wide margin, but New England is crafty as ever this season. I’m expecting an ugly game from the Patriots that somehow ends up as a narrow win.
✔ Starts: Jakobi Meyers, Mike Williams, Austin Ekeler, Damien Harris
✘ Sits: Hunter Henry, Damiere Byrd
Denver at Kansas City
Kansas City might annihilate these goons.
✔ Starts: Most of the Chiefs and Jerry Jeudy
✘ Sits: The rest of the Broncos and Sammy Watkins
