Man it would have been very interesting had yesterday’s Chargers-Chiefs game been on the main slate. That’s because Keenan Allen, Tyreek Hill and Travis Kelce were all fantastic plays (particularly Keenan Allen, who Rudy’s projections had as the #1 WR on the slate by far), and would have all had significant ownership. You’d be looking at many lineups with a bad performance (Kelce and his 9.2) and a complete dud (the zero from Allen as he got hurt). You’d also be looking at a lot of lineups that picked either Jackson or Damien Williams, but not both, and the difference (27.3 for Williams, 16 for Jackson) would likely put the Jackson lineups drawing very thin, and possibly render them drawing dead if they played Allen and Kelce with that money. Alas, the game was on Thursday, so while it made for great TV, and made for an interesting showdown slate, only those who played the full Thursday-Monday slate care about it’s effects on a full slate. If you did play the Thursday-Monday slate, and you played Keenan Allen (and you did not play Jackson or Williams), I’d highly suggest pivoting your lineup to high-upside non-chalk plays to try to make up the lost ground.Please, blog, may I have some more?

All there is left to determine fantasy playoff spots is the terrible NFC East showdown tonight and whatever tiebreaker your league uses. I hope that the results have ended in your favor because I’m rooting for you and I want you to keep clicking in December.
As I combed through the scoreboards of the leagues that I play in, scoring seemed like it was a little bit lower than usual yesterday. Well, until Antonio Brown and James Conner stepped onto the field. By the way, the Steelers and the Chargers was the perfect night cap. For me, the night game always leaves a lasting impression for how the football week was.
Most of my Sunday afternoons are spent flipping back and forth from the red zone channel to games that have heavy implications for me personally. If I’m watching the red zone channel and Josh Allen pops up on full screen, you better believe that I’m flipping to see what the Panther and Bucs or the Bears and Giants are up to. Watching condensed games is pretty cool and I do that pretty often, but it doesn’t feel the same because I already know the results. My point is, the Sunday night game is the only game of the day that I can get lost in the game flow and the narratives. Let’s get to the results that stuck out in week 13.Please, blog, may I have some more?

It feels just like yesterday that I was writing pre-season articles for you. Now, we are facing the last week(s) of the fantasy football regular season. While we are all getting stuffed on side-dishes (because we all know turkey is just taking up space on our plate), we have crucial decisions to make regarding our rosters. What is your favorite thanksgiving dish?
This week, due to the holiday, I’ll keep it brief and get straight to this weeks culprits. We have a few backfield situations worth monitoring…Please, blog, may I have some more?
Welcome to Propageddon, readers new and old. Last week we finally had a reader beat the touts. With an 8, reader Biz outscored the field, while Russ Prentice (@Russ1Prentice) was the best scoring tout at 7. This is what happens with poor voter turnout people. The terrorists win. Or something. I know it’s bad.
This week we have a legitimate prize. Rudy has offered up a subscription to his NFL Tools for the rest of the season to the winning reader. To be entered into the running you must complete the survey, include your email address, and get the most correct. The smart thing to do would be to go and get the free trial, then use the tools to dominate the props. It’s the equivalent of asking the genie for more wishes. So dig in with THIS WEEK’S PROPS. Here are some of the more interesting tout side results.Please, blog, may I have some more?
