The Pace of Play Report: Week 13

by Neil Dutton, December 8, 2022

Truth be told, there were no real dramatic shifts in pace this past week. We seem to have reached a point of the season where teams seem to know who they are. The New York Jets jumped from No. 8 a week ago up to No. 4 after playing catchup for the bulk of their loss to the Vikings. But this Jets team tends towards playing fast, so this is not an earth-shattering development. They haven’t ranked lower than No. 8 all season long. What is noticeable is that over their last two games they’ve averaged 2.47 points per drive. In the ten games prior, this mark was just 1.74. I don’t think you’re coming back anytime soon, Zach Wilson.

Week 14 TNF Showdown: Raiders at Rams

by Matt Babich, December 8, 2022

It’s time Derek Carr gets his flowers. Behind the disaster that is the Raiders, he is averaging 19.27 (No. 11) fantasy points per game and has thrown at least two touchdown passes in every game since week 9. What he lacks in efficiency, he makes up for with his aggression. He’s airing it out with 9.1 (No. 5) Air Yards per Attempt. With 30 (No. 3) Money Throws, we’re even seeing a clutch gene from Carr. He’s been automatic since week 9 and is a top-12 option against a Rams defense that has given up nearly 20 fantasy points per game to quarterbacks over the last four weeks.

The Infirmary Report: Post Week 13

by Jason Allwine, December 5, 2022

This is the Infirmary Report: Post Week 13! The worst part of our beloved game is the frequency of injuries. It’s an unfortunate byproduct of such a fast-paced, contact-heavy sport. It’s something that is important to remember as we approach the first full week of the preseason. Luckily for the NFL players, they have access to some of the best doctors in the world and can usually return to form at least by the next season. Unfortunately for us fantasy players, it’s not always easy to know when a player will get hurt. To another degree, sometimes your roster isn’t big enough to plan ahead for an injury. This series, the Infirmary Report, will give you advice on the injuries that have happened every week during the season. Without further ado, here is the Infirmary Report: Post Week 13 of regular season action.

Week 13 MNF Showdown: Saints vs Buccaneers

by Dookie Hogue, December 5, 2022

Chris Olave is the clear alpha wideout for the Saints. The rookie has stepped up big for the team, leading them in both Targets (50) and Receiving Yards (433). I like Olave’s ceiling on any given week as he’s cleared the 100-yard receiving mark three times already this season.

Godwin is the preferred option in this week’s matchup after shredding the Browns for 12/110/1. Godwin has been reliable, having seen double-digit Targets in five of his last six contests.

AFC South Report Post Week 12: The Truly Terrible Texans

by Jason Allwine, December 4, 2022

Welcome back to the AFC South Report! 12 weeks of regular season action have come and gone, and I’m here to tell you all about how the AFC has shaped up so far. Also, I will take a look at how my predictions for the season are stacking up so far as well as provide a few more predictions. A lot has happened since the last check-in on Week 8. The Colts brought Jeff Saturday in as their coach and he reinstated Matt Ryan as the starting QB. The Texans have somehow started to look worse. Malik Willis had his shot, but lost it for the rest of this season. And the Jaguars continue to steadily improve, especially Trevor Lawrence. Without further ado, let’s take a little bit deeper of a look into these teams now that there’s only a few weeks left.

Betting the Spread Week 13 | Fields Returns

by Shervon Fakhimi, December 3, 2022

Justin Fields practiced in full on Thursday and is averaging 6.84 yards per carry this season. He has at least 47 rushing yards in every game since Week 3, at least 60 yards in every game since Week 6, and at least one rushing touchdown in every game since Week 7. David Montgomery ran for 122 yards at an 8.13 yards per carry clip against Green Bay in Week 2. Fields and Montgomery, heck even Darrynton Evans if he gets 10 touches again like he did last week, is set to smash against this Packers’ defense.

The Pace of Play Report: Week 12

by Neil Dutton, December 1, 2022

The Denver Broncos continue to step on the gas and operate at a faster pace. They are up to No. 11 after Week 12 with a pace of play mark of 2.124. In the first six weeks of the season, the Broncos were never higher than No. 25 while dropping as low as No. 28 on occasion. This emphasis on speed has done precious little for them offensively, and it should be noted. The Broncos are No. 32 in points scored and No. 32 in the percentage of drives ending with points at 26.6-percent. Luckily, they don’t have the mother of all albatrosses in a contract for their misfiring quarterback. Oh, hang on…

Week 13 TNF Showdown: Bills at Patriots

by Matt Babich, December 1, 2022

Josh Allen managers can rest easy knowing his UCL injury isn’t the detriment to his fantasy production that many feared it would be. Producing 21.2 fantasy points per game with two games of 40+ pass attempts since the scare, he’s confidently the rest-of-season QB1. He’s still not afraid to run. He carried the rock 10 times for 78 yards and a score in Week 12. Against a Patriots defense that has allowed solid fantasy performances to talented quarterbacks, Allen is a top-10 option.

Cody Carpentier’s 2023 NFL Mock Draft 1.0

by Cody Carpentier, December 1, 2022

The Packers have a clear need for weapons, after spending 12 of 17 draft picks in Rounds 1 and 2 on the Defense since 2015, the Packers attempted to trade up for Christian Watson into Round 1 of the 2022 Draft. In 2023, they finally address it and they do it early.

It just hasn’t worked out for Derek Carr in Las Vegas… or Oakland. The Raiders have a $5.6 Million dollar dead cap OUT in Carr’s contract after the 2022 season that will allow Las Vegas to move on and get Josh McDaniels a quarterback of choice in C.J. Stroud.
