 TNF Slate Rundown
Posted by Kevin Adams on Thursday, December 15, 2016 - 18:45

What up Elite Mafia! It’s Hedgy Stacks… aka @MagicSportsGuy, here to give you a quick TNF breakdown. Tonight’s game is UGLY, and that’s being kind. The Rams opened up with a 13 point team total and has since moved DOWN 1.5 points to 11.5. I can honestly say I have never seen a team total that low (ever)...

 Week 15 Kicker Recommendations

Kickers averaged 7.3 FP in Week 14, continuing a downward trend. The kicker algorithm struggled badly. "Sits" were pretty good calls, averaging 6.0 FP with a .750 winning percentage. The other categories were not. "Starts" just matched the overall average of 7.3 FP and had a losing record. "Marginal Starts", which had been the new place I was touting to find your kicker for the week were pitiful: 5.2 FP and only 1 right call out of 5. "Neutrals" were the top-scoring group at 8.3 FP and had a slightly better than .500 W-L record. Not a good way to enter the fantasy playoffs:

 Week 14 Injury Report

Quarterbacks

Dolphin QB Ryan Tannehill (ACL, MCL) is believed to have avoided an ACL tear, and while he will miss the rest of the regular season with ACL and MCL sprains, ESPN’s Jeff Darlington reported there’s “definitely a cautious sense of internal optimism” Tannehill could return for the postseason.

Lion QB Matthew Stafford (finger) will play through his finger injury, according to HC Jim Caldwell. He apparently suffered a “PIP dislocation” with torn ligaments in his middle finger of his throwing hand, and will play with a glove or something over the finger for the rest of the season.

Packer QB Aaron Rodgers (calf) suffered a calf injury Sunday but it “doesn’t seem as bad as the one form two years ago,” according to NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport. It looks like he’ll be okay for Week 15.

 Week 14/15 Monday/Thursday Options

Baltimore Ravens @ New England Patriots

Vegas: Patriots -6.5, O/U: 45.5

The spread in this game dropped three points and the total crept up one. I guess Vegas expects the Baltimore offense to do a little more than they originally did when the line came out. Both teams are in the top 12 for pace and pretty close to each other, so neither team gets a big bump or downgrade there. This is a matchup of strengths against strength and weakness against weakness as the Baltimore offense ranks 27th DVOA and faces the 19th ranked New England defense. The 3rd ranked New England offense faces the 2nd ranked Baltimore defense, so something has to give on both sides of the ball.

Chalk Talk

We always want to start by trying to identify the most likely chalk plays. We need to know who we want to attack and who we can fade on our rosters. This is a pretty weird week when it comes to roster construction. I think you can build rosters a few different ways and depending on your construction, we can figure out who the chalk is likely to be. Let me show you what I mean.

The Winston/Evans/Brate Tampa Bay stack is going to be uber chalky this week. They have a matchup with the putrid Saints secondary in the highest total game on the board. In fact, we do not have many high total games this weekend. This is by far the top one with a total over 50. Drew Brees is on the road, so people will shy away from him, which means the top owned QB in my eyes is likely to be Jameis Winston. Mike Evans is his clear #1 WR and has a matchup with the struggling Delvin Breaux. He is likely to be the highest owned WR on the weekend. Cameron Brate is basically the De facto #2 pass catcher here and is my bet to be the highest owned TE on the weekend.
