Against the Spread: Divisional Round Picks
Game: Atlanta Falcons at Philadelphia Eagles (+3)
Pick: Atlanta Falcons (-3)
Do the Falcons have their groove back? Although there were missteps in the Wildcard round against the Rams, the Atlanta defense looked sharp and the team may be gaining momentum going deeper into the playoffs. The Eagles have been a great squad this year, but shouldn't be able to overpower the Falcons offensively after the loss of Carson Wentz.

Game: Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots (-13.5)
Pick: New England Patriots (-13.5)
The Titans lucked into a victory last week but won't be able to slip past the juggernaut that is the Patriots. Whether or not stories of turmoil within the organization are true, this should play out as no more than a warm-up match for a New England team with vastly more postseason experience.

Game: Jacksonville Jaguars at Pittsburgh Steelers (-7)
Pick: Pittsburgh Steelers (-7)
Plainly put, the slumping Jaguars simply won't be able to score enough points on offense to come out on top of a Steelers' team with two of the best offensive weapons in football (Bell and Brown) - both healthy, and ready to produce.

Game: New Orleans Saints at Minnesota Vikings (-4.5)
Pick: New Orleans Saints (+4.5)
The Vikings have been truly impressive this year, and their defense will test Brees and the Saints to the limit in this game - but it will likely be too hard for the Vikings to keep up with the Saints' explosiveness on two fronts in this one.

Which game pick are you most confident with?
Tennessee Titans at New England Patriots (-13.5)

News Reaction on Tyrod Taylor (QB - CLE) - Tyrod Taylor BENCHED for Week 11
The Bills offense has been all over the board this season, and there is no reason to think that throwing Peterman into the fire will suddenly create order from chaos. However, the Bills do play the Patriots and Colts in weeks 13 and 14 so Peterman may well be a sneaky wait-and-see option to throw in your lineup for those weeks if he shows well against the Chargers and Chiefs in upcoming games.
Ezekiel Elliott (RB - DAL) - Ezekiel Elliott withdraws appeal; will serve full six-game suspension
Thu, Nov 16
So long, Darren McFadden! He's not contributing much of anything this season. Looks like Alfred Morris and Rod Smith are the fill-ins for the duration of the suspension. Unfortunately, even together they do not an Ezekiel Elliott make. Morris is really only playable if Tyron Smith can get back healthy, and Smith is a flex play in PPR leagues.
