Dak Prescott Cowboys at Dolphins(18th)

(FD-$8,500)(DK-$7,900)(Y!-$33)

The Buffalo Bills beat the absolute hell out of the Cowboys last Sunday. Dak was sacked three times and lost 28 yards. He was also intercepted once and finished with 134 passing yards without a touchdown. So why the heck is he the highest-priced QB on the Main slate?

Who knows but this Dolphins defense is no joke either. Miami is also 10-4 and this game kicks off on Sunday at 4:25p EST. I have a feeling this could be the Bill's trainwreck game all over again.

Jared Goff Lions at Vikings(17th)

(FD-$7,800)(DK-$6,900)(Y!-$29)

A few things need to be discussed in this blurb. I will do it quickly too, promise. Not like when I say it in my single slate DFS videos. If the Rams lose on Thursday Night Football, they punch the Lions ticket to the postseason.

If the Rams win on Thursday night, then all the Lions need to do is beat the Vikings, in Minnesota, on Sunday and they are in. After what Goff did last Saturday to the Broncos, I have this sneaking suspicion the Lions are fooling around.

Sure, it is normal to be up and down and up and down. Win one week then lose the next and do that for a few weeks but that time is up. Last Saturday's win was the turning point.

Baker Mayfield Buccaneers vs. Jaguars(29th)

(FD-$7,300)(DK-$6,000)(Y!-$27)

Baker was the miracle man last week! Mayfield put up 381 yards on 22 completions and tossed 4 touchdown passes! It was a beautiful thing! He was also in last week's Bottom of the Barrel! Sometimes we get it right around here!

This week the Bucs head home to battle the AFC South-leading Jags. Unfortunately, I see no possible way Trevor Lawrence plays on Sunday. Tough break for the Jags as the Colts and Texans is nipping at their heels for the divisional lead.

Baker Mayfield will use all of this to his advantage. The Bucs are starting to come on strong. Evans, Godwin, and White have been a wonderful trio, and they are only getting stronger!

Joe Flacco Browns at Texans(24th)

(FD-$7,100)(DK-$5,500)(Y!-$26)

Joe Flacco is flipping nuts. Any 36-year-old man who can just stand in the face of pressure in the direst of situations has my respect. Flacco has basically come back into the National Football League cold, as a quarterback, and led this Browns team to the Playoffs. Well, that’s not official yet but soon will be!

Cleveland goes south to tussle with the Texans who are also without their top signal caller. Joe Flacco vs. Case Keenum. It is utterly amazing to say this, but the Browns are rolling and the momentum of last week will carry over to this one. Give me Joe Flacco to throw more touchdowns than interceptions!

Nick Mullens Vikings vs. Lions(30th)

(FD-$7,000)(DK-$5,300)(Y!-$24)

Embed from Getty Images

The Vikings lost last week. Nick Mullens also threw two interceptions. Yet, the Minnesota brass has named him their starting quarterback for this week. Aside from Dallas at Miami, this game right here has the second-highest game total.

The Sharps have Detroit to score around 25 points and the Vikings to score around 22 points. Nick Mullins will never be given awards and flowers, but he plays his ass off for himself and his teammates. That is why I love the idea of him going over 300 passing yards with a pair of touchdown passes!

Gardner Minshew II Colts at Falcons(19th)

(FD-$6,800)(DK-$5,900)(Y!-$34)

Embed from Getty Images

Gardner completed 18 passes for 215 yards and three touchdowns in Week 15 as the Colts beat the Steelers. Then the shit storm came down big time in Pittsburgh. Mike Tomlin needs to go kind of thing.

In Week 16, Indianapolis faces a Panthers team that only gives up 199.5 passing yards per game. Looks like a challenge to me! One that Gardner will accept and smash!
