Week 13 Defensive Field of Streams November 30, 2016  |  adam cook


I apologize for missing last week. The Thanksgiving holiday gets crazy for the girlfriend and I. We hit 4 different stops in our adventures on Turkey Day. I was told kids or a dog would help our lives settle down some, but we aren’t quite ready for that yet. Thanks for reading. All my ownership percentages are going into Wednesday. Let’s recap Week 11 before diving into Week 13.


Recap of Week 11 Predictions:

Pittsburgh Steelers @ Cleveland Browns – Held the Browns to 9 points and crushed them in the high winds.

Oakland Raiders vs. Houston Texans – They had some assistance from a laser pointer, which always helps.

New York Giants vs. Chicago Bears – Jay Cutler only played part of the game, somewhat limiting the Giants’ upside.


Chalk Em’ Up

Seattle Seahawks vs. Carolina Panthers: 98% owned in Yahoo leagues ($3,500 on DraftKings)

The Panthers’ offensive line is an absolute mess right now.

 

Denver Broncos @ Jacksonville Jaguars: 97% ($3,900)

In this matchup Bortles won’t even be able to Bortle.

 

New England Patriots vs. Los Angeles Rams: 91% ($3,700)

Belichick at home against a rookie quarterback? Sign me up.
