    Is FD really only doing two 2 game slates rather than a 4 game slate?

  • feekdogg

    I like all the road teams, except for Philly.

  • QuietStormClay

    Funny I see all the road teams having a hard time more then Philly..Luck if his center not back..Rivers vs the tough defense of Baltimore..Russell Wilson might have a hard time vs Dallas if Vander Esch is ok…Foles went up vs Mack last year..was sacked once..Lane Johnson protects him way better then Wentz..

    Same here.

    I like the home teams, except for Houston. I would have liked Seattle but that win in N.Y. I believe has changed the attitude in Dallas. Rivers has played awful the past two games and now has to play on the East Coast against a team he just lost to.

  • BIF

    I can make a strong case for all 8 teams winning this week – three of the games have lines less than 3 points and only the Bears are more but it’s not like they steamrolled their way home this season.

    Going into last week, I had really liked Seattle’s matchup vs Dallas and I still think they match up well but that Dallas game yesterday showed me that they are a pretty close knit bunch – I realize it was only the Giants they beat but that was gritty given they didn’t need it. Not a Cowboys fan but that effort is making me look twice at them. I still think Seattle is way better coached and I’d rather back Wilson in January than Dak but intangibles can win playoff games.

    I like the teams for this slate. Still unsure about Luck. Luck for me as being unlucky.

    Home teams generally get three points in the Wildcard rounds, seeing that Vegas is only doing 2.5 shows a low level of confidence in the home teams.

    They do this every year. Very annoying.

    Not a chance! Ray Lewis will have him locked down all game.

  • Gtzerphy

    Will not be surprised if the Eagles beat Chicago in Wildcard round, definitely the best matchup for them. If they can put up 20, they can win this game. Possible that Wentz will be active to backup St. NIck. Love Sproles as a value play.

    Soooo happy DK did the 4 game slate. 2 games are just not enough to differentiate. You end up with Nuk and Zeke being 90 percent owned, takes the fun out of it.

    FD just added the 4 game slate, too.

    You are an Eagles fan I take it? Wouldn’t shock me if any team won this week or prolly next week too and the games after that. No one seems unbeatable this yr, every team has an angle/player that can win them A game. With that said, the Bears are the much better team and absolutely dominant on the def side. They have improved everywhere as the year has gone on, including Trubisky sans his post injury game. I was watching the Min game with my buddies telling them we should lay down at half just to play Minny again because it’s a guaranteed W.

    While I can see Philly winning because of their experience I think the odds are just as good that the Bears win 27-6. They got their run game going, Trubisky has been extremely efficient lately and that D is lights out. For the playoffs I usually bet the most dominant side to win the game and I think the Bears have the most dominant side of any team in the playoffs.

  • mike42

    My hot take for the Bears DFS wise is play on the WR’s, Gabriel or Arob, think Nagy is going to take calculated shots downfield and he’s been saving it for the playoffs. Arob should see volume while Gabriel is going to get his shots downfield. He got one yesterday that was a 1/2 yd from being a splash TD. Basically we have been doing a controlled short passing game and establishing the run and have been increasingly effective at both. That fact will open up shots downfield that they haven’t been taking besides 2x yesterday and Philly is a pristine matchup to do just that. Think either Arob or Gabriel land on the winning LU.

    I agree, wouldn’t bet my life on any one team this weekend. Bears D is tough to run on which is not a strength of the Eagles. Foles will put it up 35-45 times and Sproles will be heavily involved in short dump offs and screens to offset the pass rush. Eagles are as healthy as they have been all year sans Wentz and the defense has improved albeit with a thin secondary.

    100% with u on all of this, you echoed my exact sentiments. Was excited before Sunday to bet this game but what happened Sunday gives me pause. I would have bet the money line on Sea at open if Dak didn’t do what he did on Sunday and it wasn’t Amari yac plays, he straight up balled. I bet the over, haven’t decided on the side. Bet Indy hard already, only concern is their youth at so many positions. Who do you like betting wise? Taking Bears, Dal at half and SD at half too. Still processing rest.

    Indy and the Bears are 2 teams that I think should win but their lack of experience scares me a bit.

    CG- Does KJ coming back solidify your run D or do you think Zeke smashes? I feel like Dal has an edge outside Vs your cb’s, especially Cooper. I also feel your WR’s are in play, Dal 2nd and third cb’s can be beaten. Breakdown the game like you only can, please.

    I don’t trust Dak in a game like this. I think both teams run the ball 30 times and both Qbs throw for under 200. 24-21 with over 350 rushing yards

    Not so sure he has a good real life game but Sea secondary is very beatable and my best guess is Sea focuses on run/zeke and makes Dak beat them. If so, that puts Dal passing game in play.
