7:44pmET: Week 11 Projections Updated
7:08pmET: The first analyst that says, "Ohhh, Mariota in the cold...the Hawaii kid; I don't know!" Last season -- went and took out Denver, that Denver Defense, in near record cold and followed that up by going to another ice bowl game AT KC...and beat KC. When Mariota went DEN-KC wins last year they shocked the world and then Mariota got hurt and the Titans' season got flushed late.
Afternoon Injury news...
-- No Tyron Smith for Dallas...yikes. Dak projection dip...
-- Seattle: Duane Brown game-time decision...Kam Chancellor more out than in -- The Computer is going Atlanta Blazing Five for the outright win.
-- Jordan Reed game time decision...assume he's out, again.
-- My Bengals DST play...Adam Jones is now unlikely to play. Not a help...
12:31pmET: I kinda looked right past the Bengals DST because I've been so focused on the Chargers DST...but one of the reasons why I love the Chargers DST for 2 of the next 3 weeks runs through Cincy -- a game vs. CLE.
Week 11 v. DEN is a good spot, especially if Paxton Lynch weasels his way in there.
Week 12 v. CLE...perfect.
The Bengals are #5 in passing yards allwoed per game. #7 in sacks. #12 in PPG allowed. They are not bad at all...they've just been rocked with a bad schedule.
They beat CLE 31-7 at CLE earlier this year. They held BUF to 16 points. They've been good vs. bad teams. The Bengals haven't been crushed by the likes of GB-PIT-JAC-TEN, but they didn't have great numbers for FF against them either...understandably.
You're in a do-or-die two week stretch? The Bengals might be your play and/or keep away from opponents?
-- Washington added rookie RB LeShun Daniels to their practice squad, for depth. He was hot for a minute this preseason with New England. I don't see anything to get excited about.
-- Corey/Philly Brown may be headed back to Carolina to fill the Curtis Samuel vacancy. Yawn.
-- Arizona DT Corey Peters out with injury. This may be where Olsen Pierre starts to matter for IDP...unless they push failed Robert Nkemdiche. And you know they will.
-- The Colts claimed Falcons' preseason love LB Jermaine Grace. Atlanta lost Grace just to sign a junk RB for depth -- I'd be super-scared if I owned Devonta Freeman for FF and super-stoked if I had Tevin Coleman.
-- 'All Picks' by The Computer posted (home page scroll down) as well as Jason Katz's crumbling Super Bowl season and views on Week 10.
-- Projections update around 730pm after the inactives released for TNF
