    Does anyone know/believe that players on teams that are out of the playoff race are arguably riskier plays in these last few weeks? It seems to me that the Raiders, while we know they are bad, are not so incredibly terrible that they could post no points against the Rams at all. This has me considering if players should be looked at at face value in games like NYG@TEN

    Well the raiders are just flat out awful. I haven’t rostered a raider all year. The Giants at least have a stud wr and a decent rb. And any defense playing the Giants isnt a bad play. Lol.

    But you have to admit Carr has shown occasional flashes this year, despite having no one really helpful around him. This is why I am skeptical that they would put up a 0-52 score against an average Rams team. I think it’s possible that they are satisfied with last week’s win to not go the season winless and now they are playing for draft picks. The Giants giving up 2 DTDs to the Jags also seems fishy to me, in causing them to lose that game by a point…

    Why, as a player on a team with no playoff hopes at this point, would you give it a 100% effort, potentially risking injury, unless you truly just play for the love of the game?

    My question isn’t about the Raiders specifically, or the Giants. Those were merely examples for my point and question. A team like the Texans still has playoff hopes, so they need to field their best players and play lights out to give themselves the chance. I could expect Texans players in week 14 to be playing their hardest. Meanwhile, players on the Jags/Raiders/Titans have less to play for at this point, unless the specific player’s job is on the line.

    For the huge contract I guess. They get paid a lot of money not to give it there all.

    Annnnnd the Rams defense is an above average defense. They were bothered by injuries and are finally getting healthy again.
