Against the Spread: Conference Round Picks
Fri, Jan 19
Against the Spread: Conference Round Picks
Game: Jacksonville Jaguars at New England Patriots (-9)
Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars (+9)
This is the matchup that could possibly cause some troubles for the Patriots, but I ultimately think they can end the Jaguars' playoff run.

Game: Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles (+3)
Pick: Minnesota Vikings (-3)
The Eagles are home underdogs yet again, but I think the Vikings will carry over their magical win last weekend into a home date for the Super Bowl.

Which game pick are you most confident with?
Minnesota Vikings at Philadelphia Eagles (+3)

Against the Spread: Divisional Round Picks
Wed, Jan 10
Against the Spread: Divisional Round Picks
Game: Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles (+3)
Pick: Philadelphia Eagles (+3)
The Eagles are the first number one seed to be an underdog in the divisional round in over 40 years, but that won't matter this weekend. The Eagles boast a stout defense who will undoubtedly use the "underdog" status to their advantage. Also, an extra week of preparation for Nick Foles certainly can't hurt either. The Eagles not only cover here, but they also walk away with a win.

Game: Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots (-13.5)
Pick: New England Patriots (-13.5)
The Titans pulled off a stunning win on the road against the Chiefs, but they will see their playoff run end in Foxborough this week. Not only do I think the Patriots will win, but they will do so in rather dominant fashion. Marcus Mariota won't have nearly as much room for error in this one and Derrick Henry won't be able to keep this game close all by himself.

Game: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers (-7)
Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars (+7)
I ultimately think the Steelers will be able to avenge their loss to Jacksonville from earlier this season, but I think the Jaguars' defense can keep it close. At the end of the day, Blake Bortles cannot play like he did last week and expect to help Jacksonville win. Also, the Pittsburgh offense should be much better off than they were earlier in the season when these two teams met, and having Antonio Brown back in the fold certainly doesn't hurt either.

Game: New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings (-4.5)
Pick: New Orleans Saints (+4.5)
Two forces collide in Minnesota this weekend as the high-powered Saints face a tough Vikings' defense. I think this game will remain close enough for the Saints to cover, with the Vikings ultimately winning to remain on track for a first-ever "home game" for the Super Bowl.

Which game pick are you most confident with?
Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles (+3)

Carson Palmer (QB - FA) - Carson Palmer retires
Fri, Jan 5
News Reaction on Carson Palmer (QB - FA) - Carson Palmer retires
Obviously it's sad to see any great player walk away from the game, especially in an injury-riddled fashion. That being said, Palmer should have no regrets about retiring after a brilliant career. He will certainly be remembered for his years in Cincinnati in which he racked up fantasy points for many owners. Those that have him in dynasty or keeper leagues are free to cut bait and move along as this surely is the end of a great career.
Against the Spread: Wild Card Picks

Against the Spread: Wild Card Picks
Game: Tennessee Titans at Kansas City Chiefs (-8)
Pick: Kansas City Chiefs (-8)
The Titans' offense looks lethargic right now and despite making the playoffs, coach Mike Mularkey could be fighting for his job.

Game: Atlanta Falcons at Los Angeles Rams (-5)
Pick: Los Angeles Rams (-5)
Atlanta simply doesn't possess the same firepwoer as a year ago and that would prove to be a disaster against the Rams' high-octane offense.

Game: Buffalo Bills at Jacksonville Jaguars (-8.5)
Pick: Jacksonville Jaguars (-8.5)
Congratulations to the Bills for finally making the playoffs, but this will be short-lived. LeSean McCoy will be less than 100% if he plays and even he won't make much of a difference against this defense.

Game: Carolina Panthers at New Orleans Saints (-6)
Pick: New Orleans Saints (-6)
The Saints are dangerous at home and with their two-headed monster out of the backfield they should put up some points. This isn't an indictment of the Panthers' defense but rather a lack of confidence in their offense.

Which game pick are you most confident with?
Buffalo Bills at Jacksonville Jaguars (-8.5)

Josh Gordon (WR - CLE)
Fri, Dec 1
Player Note on Josh Gordon (WR - CLE)
It sounds as if Hue Jackson fully intends to utilize the uber-talented yet oft-troubled receiver as much as he can this week, but Gordon is still a risky play until we know what to expect. This is a tough matchup for Cleveland's passing attack, but we all know the upside Gordon possesses. That being said, he's still nothing more than a deep flier WR4 this week.
Trevor Siemian (QB - MIN) - Trevor Siemian to start Week 13
Fri, Dec 1
News Reaction on Trevor Siemian (QB - MIN) - Trevor Siemian to start Week 13
The carousel continues at quarterback for the Broncos, as they are now turning back to Trevor Siemian after losing Paxton Lynch to an injury. On deck is a plus matchup for the Broncos’ passing game as they face the Dolphins in Miami. The Dolphins have allowed nearly three passing touchdowns per game over their last four while surrendering 264 passing yards per contest during that span.
Jimmy Garoppolo (QB - SF) - Jimmy Garoppolo to start vs Chicago
Fri, Dec 1
Garoppolo doesn't have a ton of weapons at his disposal and plays behind a suspect offensive line, but he could hold some value in the right spots. The Bears' defense has allowed an average of 253 passing yards and two touchdowns per game over their last three outings, so there is a bit of upside to be had. He's usable in two-quarterback leagues, but he's still just a fringe QB2 at best this week.
