2018 Sunday Week 15 -- Open Thread/Notes
So many things happening in a whirlwind Sunday morning…news and notes and rumors coming from all angles, plus the Video Q&A show 11-1pmET – it’s hard to communicate everything pre-kickoff.
With that in mind, I’m going to open up this post and add to it as I get info or a thought or whatever – notes before kickoff, trends happening on the Video Q&A, breaking betting lines, etc. Whatever I want to note and I’ll clearly mark it with the times so you can see what and when. God Bless us one and all…

12:28pmET: Video Show Notes...
-- Evan Engram wild card play this week...Ian Thomas stable, Engram upside...Everett countering Goff
-- Josh Adams...I'm expecting big touches, Katz fears game flow takes him away
-- TY Hilton...trust more than not
10:55amET: Pre-show notes...
-- LeSean is out.
-- I like Gerald Everett this week from the perspective of no Jordan Hicks for Eagles again...thus the late rise in his projections.
9:58amET: Vegas check...
-- Rams up to -13.0...I like the Rams set up here coming off last week and in perfect weather, but I don't like betting against Foles because you know what he can do -- just not sure a short week surprise start is the best set up to take on Wade Phillips.
-- Tennessee has gone from +3.0 to -1.0 over NYG
9:37amET: Weather check...
-- TB at BAL...rain pre-game and during the game. Messy.
-- DET at BUF...drizzle expected during game 40-50% chance.
-- TEN at NYG...60-70% chance of rain all game.
-- NE at PIT...low chance of rain, just rained all day leading up
The worry in these games...the upside potential of the QBs and related WRs/TEs. For those in need of points desperately.
9:05amET: Opening Notes...
-- Chris Ivory out, most likely. I think LeSean McCoy will also be out based on my conversations -- Marcus Murphy could be your Elijah McGuire for Sunday (guy who gets 15+ carries, 3-4 catches and is something to use for those in need). McCoy's status is still up in the air/not official...but I'm led to believe he could be inactive.
UDFA RB Keith Ford being elevated from the practice squad is a clue that there is McCoy-Ivory issues -- and I like Ford a lot as a deep sleeper prospect, but Murphy is way more experienced here.
-- James Conner 99% out today...we ride with Jaylen Samuels!!
-- Dante Pettis is not 100% today, FYI.
-- T.Y. Hilton game-time-decision but more on the side of playing. I'm trying to find out how much of this is 'diversion' or 'real' (like last week). Zach Pascal looked good last week if TYH is a diversion.
-- 24 hours of rain pre NE-PIT game...expected to be not raining at game time, but field could be wet.
