136-97-6 on tennis in 2018/19 down 5.06 units

Coric -2.5 at -110 for 8 units. Tilting hard. Arthur Smith (the OC of Tennessee) should prolly design quick throws so Marcus Mariota doesn’t get sacked 10 times… or maybe he bet on the Jaguars. Coric is better than Rudd.

NFL Thursday Night Football

69-58-5 on the NFL last season (2018/19) up 26.36 units

10-14 on the NFL this season down 5.04 units 

AJ Brown will have over 2.5 receptions at -130 for 6 units. Brown is averaging 4.5 targets and 3 catches a game in his rookie season.. so why bet him at his average? I think the Jaguars are going to focus on Delanie Walker and Derrick Henry. Henry had 238 yards!!! and 4 touchdowns!!! the last time he played the Jaguars. Jacksonville has not forgotten. Ramsey is still going to play, but I doubt he shadows the rookie Brown. I tried to google who Ramsey will be covering and all that comes up is that he hasn’t been traded yet and will play tonight. Thanks Google, I know. Brown should have some room against the same Jacksonville secondary that Sammy Watkins dominated. Last week, Houston’s top two receivers (Fuller and Hopkins) both had at least 3 catches. Brown is going to catch 4 balls or more. This may win in the first half.

Leonard Fournette will have 1 or more touchdown(s) at +101 for 4 units. Fournette has 36 touches and no touchdowns through two games. He is due. It is that simple. He got stuffed at the line last week on the two-point-conversion by Justin Reid and the Texans. Why would Marrone run it when Moustache Minshew took them all the way down the field I don’t know. Gotta give it to the hot QB in my opinion. If Fournette ran them all the way down the field I would have agreed with the playcall. As a Panthers fan, I hate all shitty playcallers even more now. Thanks Norv Turner.

Titans -3.5 at +150 for 2 units. The Browns Alternate line worked well for me Monday night, so I am going back to the well. I still think this Titans team is better than the public seems to think. Minshew was sacked 4 times last week and I expect more of that tonight. Minshew’s stats look good because of his garbage time against the Chiefs average secondary. Jacksonville completed less than 25% of their third downs last week. I think Tennessee’s defense is better than Houston’s and there are some stats that backup my thoughts like Points Against and Yards. Tennessee allowed 4.4 yards per play while forcing two turnovers last week. That is good. I love Minshew as an ECU/Mike Leach fan, but don’t love him to play great tonight. Speaking of Leach.. if you didn’t see Leach talking about PAC-12 mascots it is awesome and posted below. Leach will make you think. He is quite the Wordsmith..

Champions League Recap – Europa League Predictions

92-78-9 on Soccer in 2018 up 8.17 units

44-36-9 on Soccer in 2019 down 0.64 units

I love betting on Manchester City against Shakhtar. City have now won their past 3 games over them by a combined score of 12-0. 12! The line was -1.5 because Stones, Laporte, Kompany were all out and they had just lost to Norwich. TOO EZ. An angry Pep, makes me a happy bettor.

PSG beat Real Madrid 3-0 and Zidane said PSG were better in every department. PSG did not have any of their attacking 3 (Neymar, Mbappe, Cavani) in this match, but they had former Real man Di Maria.

Real Madrid have now lost their past 5 Champions League games without Sergio Ramos (PSG, Ajax, CSKA, CSKA, Juventus). Hazard did not look that great for Real Madrid.

Juve went up 2-0 with Cuadrado scoring his first goal since.. well it has been a while. He had an awesome dance to celebrate that was posted on the @Sportsologists instagram. Atletico Madrid turned it up a notch in the last 30 minutes of the game to equal 2-2 on a Hector Herrera header. Ronaldo had a chance to take the lead for Juventus late, but it wasn’t a penalty so he missed it..

Tottenham went up 2-0 on Olympiacos on a Lucas Moura strike and a Kane penalty, but the Greek side deservedly tied it up 2-2. I know Tottenham made the final last year, but they need a right-back and attacking-mid if they want to move on. Eriksen looks like he has checked out.

Munich took care of business and Muller scored a cheeky chip goal. Leverkusen got upset by Lokomotiv Moscow. Ajax keeps on winning in this competition, beating Lille 3-0. Leipzig can’t lose in any competition.

Valencia beat Chelsea 1-0 and Ross Barkley missed a pk. Barkley said he is still Chelsea’s PK taker after the game. Why is even on Chelsea? No disrespect, but he should not be in a top 10 clubs squad. Hummels and Dortmund put the clamps on Barcelona in their 0-0 draw. Lionel Messi saw some action for the first time since the Copa Del Ray final in May. Napoli upset Liverpool 2-0, but Liverpool lost at Napoli last year and still won the Champions League.

Onto today’s plays. Staying away from Arsenal without Lacazette, Ozil, Sokratis, Bergkamp, Pires, and Thierry Henry in the squad today.

Basel at +112 for 2 units. Basel have scored at least twice in their past 4 games. Kemal Ademi has been on fire for Basel. Krasnodar are tied atop the Russian Premier League this year after 9 games, but I like Basel at home. History, Form, and the best player are all on Basel’s side.

Sevilla at -189 for 3 units. Sevilla are going to win this game 1-0 or 2-0 like they have done in 3 of their past 4 matches. Sevilla haven’t lost an away match in La Liga this year and Qarabag are objectively worse than those teams. De Jong, Ocampos, Fernando, Joan Jordan, and Reguilon may not have the star power than Sarabia and Ben Yedder had, but Sevilla seems to be playing more like a team this season. Munir should feature today.. I like Sevilla to keep up the winning on the road.

Roma -1 at -181 for 2 units and Roma -1.5 at +106 for 1 unit. I don’t know much about Basaksehir, but I know Roma should beat them in Rome. Dzeko should feast. Roma scored 4 goals in their last game and I expect more of the same here. The last time Basaksehir played a team near Roma’s stature (B. Monchengladbach), they lost 5-1. Mkhitaryan, Kluivert, Florenzi, and Cristante can all score for Roma. Florenzi can score from the halfway line..

Champions League Wednesday

92-78-9 on Soccer in 2018 up 8.17 units

42-35-9 on Soccer in 2019 down 9.37 units

Manchester City -1.5 at -122 for 12 units. Max Play. John Stones adds to Manchester City’s CB injury list, but I still like them to take care of business against Shakhtar Donestsk. City beat the Ukrainian club 6-0 and 3-0 in the Champions League last year. City are coming off of a 3-2 loss to Norwich. De Bruyne did not start that game against Norwich and you could tell. City looked a lot better once De Bruyne came on. Kyle Walker and Otamendi have had better games than over the weekend at Norwich.. They will play better today. Cancelo will get his first start for Man City if I had to guess. Rodri, Sterling, Silva, De Bruyne, and Aguero should all feature.

Image result for man city shakhtar gif

Shakhtar allowed Zorya Luhansk to score 3 goals on them over the weekend (Zorya only had 9 goals in 6 league games before that match). If Zorya can score 3, so can Man City. This line is a gift because of the Stones/Laporte injuries and the Norwich result. Also, Man City had the most goals in the Champions League with 30 last season. They scored on over 18% of their shots. That is lethal. They should pick apart the Shakhtar backline. I am not losing money today.

Real Madrid pk,+½ at -112 for 3 units. Hazard, Benzema, and Bale vs Icardi, Sarabia, and Di Maria. I’ll take the former to draw or win.

Juventus pk,+½ at -116 for 3 units. I see Ronaldo in Champions League to win or draw and I take Ronaldo in Champions League to win or draw. I am a simple man.

NFL Week 2 Recap – Fantasy Waiver Adds

69-58-5 on the NFL last season (2018/19) up 26.36 units

10-14 on the NFL this season down 5.04 units 

Trevor Siemian getting hurt last night hurt my over on his completions bet pretty bad. Odell was saying Gregg Williams tells his players to play dirty… maybe Myles still has his former coach’s coaching in his head.. Siemian had 3 completions and Falk had 20. The over under for Siemian was 19.5. It would have hit and I would be up units on the season. I am still salty haha

Top Waiver Wire Adds:

Cowboys D, Jaylen Samuels, Mecole Hardman, Demarcus Robinson, Josh Allen, Raheem Mosart, Daniel Jones, Ty Montgomery, Deebo Samuel, and James Washington in that order.

I like Terry McLaurin, Chris Thompson, and Rashaad Penny better than all the guys above.. but they are most likely rostered if your league is good. I would not spend a lot of your FAAB budget this week. Seems like a down week for the waiver wire compared to last week..

Panthers: 

  • Cam Newton: 25/51, 333 yards + 2 carries, 0 yards
  • Christian McCaffrey: 16 carries, 37 yards + 2 receptions, 16 yards, 6 targets
  • DJ Moore: 9 receptions, 89 yards, 14 targets
  • Curtis Samuel: 5 receptions, 91 yards, 13 targets + 1 carry, 2 yards
  • Greg Olsen: 6 receptions, 110 yards, 9 targets
  • Jarius Wright: 2 receptions, 15 yards, 6 targets
  • Chris Hogan:  1 reception, 12 yards, 1 target

Buccaneers: 

  • Jameis Winston: 16/25, 208, 1 TD + 4 carries, 9 yards
  • Peyton Barber: 23 carries, 82 yards, 1 TD + 1 reception, 7 yards, 1 target
  • Ronald Jones III: 4 carries, 9 yards
  • Dare Ogunbowale: 1 reception, 9 yards, 1 target
  • Mike Evans: 4 receptions, 61 yards, 8 targets
  • Chris Godwin: 8 receptions, 121 yards, 1 TD, 9 targets
  • O.J. Howard: Nada. Zip.
  • Cameron Brate: 2 receptions, 10 yards, 2 targets
  • Breshad Perriman: 4 targets

Bucs won 20-14. Cam has thrown the highest percentage of uncatchable passes through two weeks. Also, he didn’t sneak it on 4th and 1 with the game on the line. He is clearly hurt and was seen leaving the Charlotte airport in a walking boot to see a specialist on Tuesday. McCaffrey could have cut in and maybe got the first down/touchdown to beat the Buccaneers, but Norv Turner made a terrible play call. Norv ran the ball up the middle on 2nd and 24, but called passing plays and trick plays on multiple 4th and 1s. What the hell? Norv Turner needs to be fired for his playcalling. At least leave Cam under center so the defense has to respect his sneak.. Chris Godwin looked like a beast. I thought Donte Jackson could cover him. I was wrong. Peyton Barber looked solid. Christian McCaffrey will get his, but the Buccaneers defense played hard. Winston missed some throws, but still looked a lot better than week 1.

Saints:

  • Drew Brees: 3/5, 38 yards, 1 INT
  • Teddy Bridgewater: 17/30, 165 yards + 2 carries, 5 yards
  • Taysom Hill: 3 targets, 2 receptions, 16 yards
  • Alvin Kamara: 13 carries, 45 yards + 3 targets, 1 reception, 15 yards
  • Latavius Murray: 5 carries, 7 yards + 1 target, 1 reception, 16 yards
  • Michael Thomas: 13 targets, 10 receptions, 89 yards
  • Tre’Quan Smith: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 49 yards
  • Jared Cook: 7 targets, 2 receptions, 25 yards

Rams:

  • Jared Goff: 19/28, 283, 1 TD + 4 carries, -2 yards, 1 TD
  • Todd Gurley: 16 carries, 63 yards, 1 TD + 4 targets, 3 receptions, 4 yards
  • Malcolm Brown: 6 carries, 37 yards + 1 target, 1 reception, 10 yards
  • Cooper Kupp: 9 targets, 5 receptions, 120 yards + 1 carry, 6 yards
  • Robert Woods: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 33 yards + 1 carry, 9 yards
  • Brandin Cooks: 4 targets, 3 receptions, 74 yards, 1 TD + 1 carry, 2 yards
  • Gerald Everett: 5 targets 3 receptions, 21 yards + 1 carry, 0 yards
  • Tyler Higbee: 3 targets, 2 receptions, 21 yards

Rams won 27-9. Drew Brees hurt his thumb when his hand collided with Aaron Donald’s. Donald clearly has stronger hands. Brees is out 6 weeks. The Saints get screwed by the refs again. In the ref’s defense it did look like Goff had the ball in real time because the way it fumbled right in front of his arm. When Goff’s arm went forward.. so did the ball. Cam Jordan recovered it for a TD, but since it was ruled incomplete on the field, no touchdown. Teddy Bridgewater could not take New Orleans down the field on that drive or any other drives really. If Sean Payton loves Hill so much, why didn’t he get more snaps at QB? Cooper Kupp looks amazing. Brandin Cooks is great at catching deep balls. Todd Gurley found the endzone. Michael Thomas got a lot of targets from Bridgewater. The NFC South is wide fucking open. Might be a 9-7 division champ..

 

Chargers:

  • Philip Rivers: 21/39, 293 yards, 1 INT + 1 carry, 12 yards
  • Austin Ekeler: 17 carries, 66 yards, 1 TD, 1 fumble + 6 targets, 6 receptions, 67 yards
  • Justin Jackson: 7 carries, 59 yards + 1 target, 1 reception, 5 yards
  • Keenan Allen: 15 targets, 8 receptions, 98 yards
  • Mike Williams: 5 targets, 3 receptions, 83 yards
  • Dontrelle Inman: 2 targets, 1 reception, 28 yards
  • Travis Benjamin: 2 targets, 0 receptions

Lions:

  • Matthew Stafford: 22/30, 245, 2 TD, 2 INT + 4 carries, 13 yards
  • Kerryon Johnson: 12 carries, 41 yards + 3 targets, 2 receptions, 47 yards, 1 TD
  • C.J. Anderson: 5 carries, 8 yards
  • Ty Johnson: 5 carries, 30 yards + 2 targets, 2 receptions, 6 yards
  • Kenny Golladay: 10 targets, 8 receptions, 117 yards, 1 TD
  • Marvin Jones Jr.: 6 targets, 5 receptions, 43 yards
  • T.J. Hockenson: 3 targets, 1 reception, 7 yards
  • Jesse James: 4 targets, 3 receptions, 18 yards

Ty Long made 1 of 3 field goals and the Chargers lost 13-10. Austin Ekeler is the top scoring RB in fantasy. Chargers finally lost a game that Melvin Gordon didn’t play in. Jackson looked solid too for LAC. Kenny Golladay went up and mossed some guys in this game. He is looking like a stud. TJ Hockenson came back to Earth, but played a higher % of snaps than in week 1, when he went off. Taylor Decker, Detroit’s LT, was out this game, so Hockenson stayed in to block more. Big Cock Hock should run more routes once Decker comes back. Keenan Allen did well playing against Slay. Chargers turned it over in the redzone twice, had two Tds called back, and missed two field goals. Bad Beat if you bet on them.

Titans:

  • Marcus Mariota: 19/28, 154 yards, 1 touchdown + 5 carries, 32 yards
  • Derrick Henry: 15 carries, 81 yards, 1 touchdown + 3 targets, 2 receptions, 12 yards
  • Dion Lewis: 3 carries, 9 yards + 1 target, 1 reception, 5 yards
  • Corey Davis: 5 targets, 3 receptions, 38 yards
  • AJ Brown: 5 targets, 3 receptions, 2 yards
  • Delanie Walker: 6 targets, 4 receptions, 39 yards
  • Adam Humphries: 2 targets, 2 receptions, -1 yards + 1 carry, 1 yard

Colts:

  • Jacoby Brissett: 17/28, 146 yards, 3 touchdowns, 1 interception + 7 carries, 25 yards
  • Marlon Mack: 20 carries, 51 yards + 3 targets, 2 receptions, 12 yards
  • Jordan Wilkins: 5 carries, 82 yards + 1 target, 1 reception, 4 yards
  • Nyheim Hines: 2 carries, 9 yards + 2 targets, 1 reception, 5 yards
  • TY Hilton: 6 targets, 4 receptions, 43 yards, 1 touchdown
  • Eric Ebron: 4 targets, 3 receptions, 25 yards, 1 touchdown
  • Jack Doyle: 3 targets, 2 receptions, 21 yards
  • Parris Cambell: 1 target, 1 reception, 12 yards, 1 touchdown

I bet on the Titans and they lost 19-17 to the Colts. Titans had 5 almost sacks by my count. Jacoby is slippery. On the other hand, Mariota kept taking sacks like he was paid to do it. TY Hilton is still a great wideout and Jacoby looks his way a lot. Eric Ebron just keeps scoring Tds. In his final season at UNC, Ebron had 980 total yards and only 3 touchdowns. His role has changed in the NFL. Doyle seems like the possession TE for the Colts. Indy needed this win as they face the Chiefs and Falcons coming up. Titans still have a great defense and o-line. Mariota and the defense just didn’t make the big plays when needed.

 

Cowboys: 

  • Dak Prescott: 26/30, 269 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
  • Ezekiel Elliott: 23 carries, 111 yards, 1 TD, 2 targets, 2 receptions, 9 yards
  • Tony Pollard: 4 carries, 22 yards, 1 target, 1 reception, 3 yards
  • Amari Cooper: 5 targets, 4 receptions, 44 yards, 1 TD
  • Michael Gallup: 8 targets, 6 receptions, 68 yards
  • Devin Smith: 3 targets 3 receptions, 74 yards, 1 TD
  • Randall Cobb: 6 targets, 5 receptions, 24 yards
  • Jason Witten: 4 targets, 4 receptions, 25 yards, 1 TD
  • Blake Jarwin: 1 target, 1 reception, 22 yards

Redskins:

  • Case Keenum: 26/37, 221 yards, 2 TDs
  • Chris Thompson: 2 carries, 3 yards, 8 targets, 5 receptions, 48 yards
  • Adrian Peterson: 10 carries, 25 yards, 1 TD, 2 targets, 2 receptions, 7 yards
  • Wendell Smallwood: 1 carry, 4 yards, 2 targets, 2 receptions, 9 yards
  • Terry McLaurin: 9 targets, 5 receptions, 62 yards, 1 TD
  • Trey Quinn: 7 targets, 4 receptions, 36 yards
  • Paul Richardson: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 6 yards, 1 TD
  • Steve Sims Jr.: 3 carries, 16 yards, 1 target, 1 reception, 3 yards
  • Vernon Davis: 4 targets, 3 receptions, 29 yards
  • Jeremy Sprinkle: 1 target, 1 reception, 11 yards

Cowboys got the big plays and beat the Redskins 31-21. I know I am getting old cause I remember when Kellen Moore was the QB of Boise State. Moore was the first FBS Qb to win 50 games. Now Kellen is calling great plays and spreading the field for Dak and the Cowboys as their OC. Dak owes Kellen a small part of his big upcoming contract. The Redskins looked fine. Terry McLaurin looks to be a stud. Adrian Peterson and Chris Thompson are what they are. Jordan Reed should come back soon and then get hurt again prolly. Gallup is going to be out a few weeks with a knee, but shouldn’t matter too much as the Cowboys are 21 point favorites against the Dolphins this week. Dak’s interception came on a tip from Cobb, but it wasn’t the best throw. Moore and the Dallas offense did a solid job of adjusting and taken advantage of what Washington was giving them. I’m not completely sure if the Dallas defense is good yet after playing Eli and Keenum…

 

Giants:

  • Eli Manning: 26/45, 250 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs + 1 run, 2 yards
  • Saquon Barkley: 20 carries, 107 yards, 1 TD + 7 targets, 3 catches, 28 yards
  • Bennie Fowler: 10 targets, 5 catches, 51 yards
  • Evan Engram: 8 targets, 6 catches, 48 yards
  • TJ Jones: 4 targets, 3 catches, 38 yards, 1 TD
  • Cody Latimer: 5 targets, 3 catches, 30 yards

Bills:

  • Josh Allen: 19/30, 253 yards, 1 TD + 7 rushes, 21 yards, 1 TD
  • Frank Gore: 19 carries, 68 yards, 1 TD + 2 targets, 2 catches, 15 yards
  • Devin Singletary: 6 carries, 57 yards, 1 TD
  • Patrick DiMarco: 1 carry, 1 yard + 1 target, 1 catch, 3 yards
  • Cole Beasley: 4 targets, 4 catches,  83 yards
  • John Brown: 8 targets, 7 catches, 72 yards
  • Isaiah McKenzie: 2 targets, 2 catches, 40 yards
  • Dawson Knox: 4 targets, 1 catch, 18 yards
  • Zay Jones: 3 targets, 1 catch, 14 yards

Bills win 28-14. Eli has been benched for Daniel Jones. I don’t know why the Giants went away from Saquon on the second drive of the game, but they did. Barkley had 80% of the touches on the first drive and they scored a TD. It isn’t rocket science. Eli threw the ball 45 times and 7 were to Saquon. Eli throwing the ball 38 times to Engram, TJ Jones, Bennie Fowler, and Latimer is not going to win you games in 2019. The Giants defense got Eli the ball on the Bills side of the field towards the end of the first half.. and Eli throws a pick… Engram seemed like the only pass-catching option this week for the G-men. Fowler and Latimer were fine. Daniel Jones better be good, because the Giants don’t have a pass rush and they passed on some good pass rushers in the draft for Jones. Singletary and John Brown are going to be good all season. Josh Allen can run well. The Bills defense is solid. Buffalo are 1 of 9 undefeated teams. They are fighting for a wildcard.

 

Steelers:

  • Ben Roethlisberger: 8/15, 75 yards
  • Mason Rudolph: 12/19, 112 yards, 2 TD, 1 INT + 1 run, 7 yards
  • James Conner: 11 carries, 33 yards, 1 TD + 4 targets, 3 catches, 12 yards
  • Benny Snell Jr.: 1 run, 23 yards
  • Jalen Samuels: 3 carries, 18 yards + 1 target, 1 catch, 13 yards
  • JuJu Smith-Schuster: 8 targets, 5 catches, 84 yards
  • Vance McDonald: 7 targets, 7 catches, 38 yards, 2 TD
  • James Washington: 3 targets, 2 catches, 23 yards
  • Diontae Johnson: 4 targets, 1 catch, 17 yards
  • Donte Moncrief: 1 target

Seahawks:

  • Russell Wilson: 29/35, 300 yards, 3 TD + 6 rushes, 22 yards
  • Rashaad Penny: 10 carries, 62 yards, 1 TD + 1 target, 1 run, 3 yards
  • Chris Carson: 15 carries, 61 yards, 1 fumble+ 3 targets, 3 catches, 27 yards
  • C. J. Prosise: 2 carries, 7 yards + 3 targets, 3 catches, 13 yards
  • Tyler Lockett: 12 targets, 10 catches, 79 yards
  • DK Metcalf: 7 targets, 3 catches, 61 yards, 1 TD
  • Malik Turner: 3 targets, 3 catches, 54 yards
  • Will Dissly: 5 targets, 5 catches, 50 yards, 2 TD
  • Nick Vannett: 1 target, 1 catch, 13 yards

Seahawks win 28-26. Big Ben is out for the season. Vance McDonald and JuJu still got a lot of looks once Mason Rudolph came in. The Steelers didn’t trade their first round pick for Minkah Fitzpatrick to tank this season. They still believe and show should you… for now. Penny should get more looks as Carson has had 3 fumbles in two games. Carson still had the 4th and 1 run to seal the game though. Seattle needed this win because the Rams and 9ers keep winning. DK Metcalf is a freak. Will Dissly kept getting open up the middle. Seahawks o-line could be better.

 

Packers:

  • Aaron Rodgers: 22/34, 209 yards, 2 TD
  • Aaron Jones: 23 carries, 116 yards, 1 TD + 6 targets, 4 receptions, 34 yards
  • Jamaal Williams: 9 carries, 38 yards + 4 targets, 3 receptions, 13 yards, 1 TD
  • Davante Adams: 9 targets, 7 receptions, 106 yards
  • Geronimo Allison: 5 targets, 4 receptions, 25 yards, 1 TD
  • Marquez Valdes-Scantling: 6 targets, 3 receptions, 19 yards

Vikings:

  • Kirk Cousins: 14/32, 230 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT
  • Dalvin Cook: 20 carries, 154 yards, 1 TD + 3 targets, 3 receptions, 37 yards
  • Alexander Mattison: 4 carries, 25 yards
  • Stefon Diggs: 7 targets, 1 reception, 49 yards, 1 TD
  • Adam Thielen: 8 targets, 5 receptions, 75 yards
  • Kyle Rudolph: 5 targets, 3 receptions, 9 yards

Packers win 21-16. Adams and Allison kept getting open it seemed. Kirk Cousins threw a fadeaway off the back foot lob pass interception in the redzone to end the game. You can’t throw that ball. Dalvin Cook is crazy fast and it is good to seem him healthy. Aaron Jones looked great. The Vikings have everything they need for a Super Bowl…. but they have a shitty QB that they are paying an insane amount a year. Sucks for Diggs and Thielen, but Kirk isn’t good. Diggs had a TD called back for offensive PI after a challenge.

 

Bears: 

  • Mitch Trubisky: 16/27, 120 yards + 1 carry, 8 yards
  • David Montgomery: 18 carries, 62 yards, 1 TD + 3 targets, 1 catch, 6 yards
  • Tarik Cohen: 4 carries, 18 yards + 5 targets, 2 receptions, 7 yards
  • Mike Davis: 3 carries, 1 yard
  • Allen Robinson: 7 targets, 4 receptions, 41 yards
  • Ben Braunecker: 3 targets, 2 receptions, 24 yards
  • Adam Shaheen: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 24 yards
  • Taylor Gabriel: 2 targets, 1 reception, 11 yards + 1 carry, 14 yards
  • Cordarelle Patterson: 2 carries, 50 yards
  • Anthony Miller: 1 target, 1 reception, 2 yards
  • Trey Burton: Was not targeted.

Broncos:

  • Joe Flacco: 35/50, 292 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
  • Phillip Lindsay: 13 carries, 36 yards + 7 targets, 4 receptions, 30 yards
  • Royce Freeman: 11 carries, 54 yards + 7 targets, 5 receptions, 48 yards
  • Emmanuel Sanders: 13 targets 11 receptions, 98 yards, 1 TD
  • Courtland Sutton: 7 targets, 4 receptions, 40 yards
  • Noah Fant: 4 targets, 4 receptions, 33 yards
  • DaeSean Hamilton: 6 targets, 2 receptions, 15 yards

Bears make a long field goal and win 16-14. Emmanuel Sanders is amazing, his TD catch near the end of the 4th was great. Bradley Chubb had a bullshit roughing the passer by falling on him call, that led to the long Mitch throw that put Chicago in field goal range. I am not mad at the Chubb penalty because I had Bears moneyline. Flacco looked good at the end of the game. Bears should stop giving Mike Davis the ball. Cohen and Montgomery are enough. Freeman looked good catching the ball for Denver. Image result for bradley chubb penalty bears gif

  • George Kittle: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 54 yards
  • Richie James: 4 targets, 1 reception, 4 yards

49ers win 41-17. San Fran are 1 of 9 undefeated teams. Bengals can’t tackle. Like actually they can’t tackle. John Ross is the best fantasy wideout so far. Tyler Boyd looked dominant at times. Goodwin is fast. Samuel is strong. Kittle wasn’t needed. Bengals o-line is bad and their defense can’t tackle. Hard to judge the 49ers too much after playing the Bucs and Bengals in weeks 1 and 2.

 

Cardinals:

  • Kyler Murray: 25/40, 349 yards, 0 TDs, 0 INTs + 3 rushes, 4 yards
  • David Johnson: 7 carries, 14 yards, 1 TD + 1 target, 1 catch, 0 yards
  • Chase Edmonds: 1 carry, 2 yards + 2 targets, 2 catches, 15 yards
  • Larry Fitzgerald: 11 targets, 5 catches, 104 yards
  • Christian Kirk: 8 targets, 6 catches, 114 yards
  • Damiere Byrd: 7 targets, 6 catches, 45 yards
  • KeeSean Johnson: 2 targets, 1 catches, 31 yards
  • Maxx Williams: 1 target, 1 catch, 21 yards

Ravens:

  • Lamar Jackson: 24/37, 272 yards, 2 TDs + 16 carries, 120 yards
  • Mark Ingram: 13 carries, 47 yards + 2 targets, 2 catches, 30 yards
  • Gus Edwards: 3 carries, 11 yards
  • Marquise Brown: 13 targets, 8 catches, 86 yards
  • Mark Andrews: 9 targets, 8 catches, 112 yards, 1 TD
  • Miles Boykin: 3 targets, 1 catch, 11 yards
  • Hayden Hurst: 1 target, 1 catch, 1 yard, 1 TD

Ravens won 23-17. Lamar Jackson is the first Qb ever with over 270 passing yards and 120 rushing yards in a regular season game. Kyler looked good, but couldn’t put his team in the endzone. That was the difference in the game. Lamar could get the touchdowns. Larry Fitzgerald and Tom Brady are freaks for balling out as old as they are. Mark Andrews has great hands and footwork. He is the #1 TE in fantasy after 2 weeks. Hollywood Brown seems like a stud. Baltimore’s defense contained the run, but got torched in the air. David Johnson hurt his wrist but came back in the game..

Chiefs:

  • Patrick Mahomes: 30/44, 443 yards, 4 TDs
  • LeSean McCoy: 11 carries, 23 yards + 3 targets, 3 catches, 0 yards
  • Damien Williams: 9 carries, 8 yards + 5 targets, 3 catches, 48 yards
  • Sammy Watkins: 13 targets, 6 catches, 49 yards
  • Travis Kelce: 9 targets, 7 catches, 107 yards, 1 TD
  • Demarcus Robinson: 6 targets, 6 catches, 172 yards, 2 TDs
  • Mecole Hardman: 6 targets, 4 catches, 61 yards, 1 TD

Raiders: 

  • Derek Carr: 23/38, 198 yards, 1 TD, 2 INTs
  • Josh Jacobs: 12 carries, 99 yards + 0 targets
  • Jalen Richard: 2 carries, 3 yards + 3 targets, 2 catches, 2 yards
  • DeAndre Washington: 3 carries, 9 yards + 2 targets, 2 catches, 26 yards
  • Hunter Renfrow: 8 targets, 4 catches, 30 yards
  • Darren Waller: 7 targets, 6 catches, 63 yards
  • Tyrell Williams: 7 targets, 5 catches, 46 yards, 1 TD
  • Derek Carrier: 5 targets, 3 catches, 33 yards

Chiefs won 28-10. Chiefs were down 10-0 at the end of the 1st. It was the first time Mahomes did not score in the 1st quarter in a game he started in. He scored on the first play of the 2nd quarter. Mahomes put up more fantasy points in the 2nd quarter than Derek Carr, Kirk Cousins, Jameis Winston, Cam Newton, and Mitch Trubisky have put up this season. Hardman, Watkins, and Robinson should all be solid until Hill comes back. Kelce is Kelce. Gareon Conley kept getting beat for Oakland. Josh Jacobs is proving why he was the first RB taking, but fantasy owners prolly want some more catches from him. Darren Waller, Renfrow, and Tyrell seem to be the only players Carr looks at consistently. McCoy and Williams got hurt in this game, but should both play next week. Will the Chiefs get Jalen Ramsey? They may need him to beat the Patriots.

 

Texans:

  • Deshaun Watson:16/29, 159 Yards + 4 Rushes, 5 Yards 1 TD
  • Carlos Hyde: 20 Rushes, 90 Yards
  • Duke Johnson: 6 Rushes, 31 Yards, 1 Target, 0 Receptions
  • DeAndre Hopkins: 8 Targets, 5 Receptions, 40 Yards
  • Will Fuller: 7 Targets, 4 Receptions, 40 Yards
  • Kenny Stills: 3 Targets, 2 Receptions, 38 Yards
  • Jordan Atkins: 3 Targets, 2 Receptions, 25 Yards

Jaguars:

  • Gardner Minshew: 23/33, 213 1 TD + 6 rushes, 56 Yards
  • Leonard Fournette: 15 Rushes, 47 Yards + 4 Receptions, 40 Yards
  • Chris Conley: 5 Targets, 4 Receptions, 73 Yards
  • DJ Chark: 9 Targets, 7 Receptions, 55 Yards 1 TD
  • James O’Shaughnessy: 4 Targets, 4 Receptions, 28 Yards
  • Geoff Swaim: 4 Targets, 3 Receptions, 14 Yards
  • Dede Westbrook: 5 targets, 1 Reception, 3 Yards

Jaguars go for 2 and Fournette gets stuffed in the 13-12 loss to the Texans. Houston loses in week 1 by 1 and wins in week 2 by 1. Dj Chark is the 5th best fantasy WR through two weeks. LSU knows how to produce NFL wideouts it seems. Fuller dropped a long TD pass. Ramsey looked great against Hopkins. Carlos Hyde is still running hard. Tunsil should be fine. Watson will have better games, but still got a nice rushing TD. I love Minshew, but why Marrone decided to run the ball when Moustache Minshew took them all the way down the field is beyond me. Give it your hot Qb on the final play. Fournette should have reached the ball out, but Justin Reid proved how strong he is by not letting him in the endzone. Why does the NFL not have the same technology soccer has for when a ball crosses the line? It is 2019..

  • Tom Brady: 20/28, 264 Yards, 2 TDs, 0 INTs + 2 carries for 1 yard TD

  • Antonio Brown: 8 targets, 4 receptions, 56, 1 TD + 1 carry for 5 yards
  • Julian Edelman: 4 targets, 4 receptions, 51 yards
  • Phillip Dorsett: 3 targets, 3 receptions, 39 yards
  • Matt LaCosse: 2 targets, 2 receptions, 33 yards

Patriots beat the Dolphins 430-0. Tom Brady threw to AB in the redzone a lot. Dolphins are ass.

Eagles:

  • Carson Wentz: 25/43, 231 yards, 1 TD, 2 INT + 3 carries, 3 yards, 1 TD
  • Josh McCown: 3/5, 24 yards
  • Miles Sanders: 10 carries, 28 yards + 4 targets, 3 receptions, 9 yards
  • Darren Sproles 3 targets, 2 receptions, 5 yards
  • Jordan Howard: 8 carries, 18 yards + 1 target, 1 reception, 8 yards
  • Nelson Agholor: 11 targets, 8 receptions, 107 yards, 1 TD
  • Zach Ertz: 16 targets, 8 receptions, 72 yards
  • Mack Hollins: 8 targets, 5 receptions, 50 yards
  • J.J. Arcega-Whiteside: 4 targets, 1 reception, 4 yards

Falcons: 

  • Matt Ryan: 27/43, 320 yards, 3 TDs, 3 INTs + 2 carries, 3 yards
  • Devonta Freeman: 11 carries, 22 yards + 4 targets, 3 receptions, 42 yards
  • Ito Smith: 4 carries, 32 yards + 3 targets, 2 receptions, 13 yards
  • Julio Jones: 10 targets, 5 receptions, 106 yards, 2 TDs
  • Calvin Ridley: 10 targets, 8 receptions, 105 yards, 1 TD
  • Mohamed Sanu: 7 targets, 4 receptions, 16 yards
  • Austin Hooper: 6 targets, 4 receptions, 34 yards

Falcons beat the Eagles 24-20. Julio Jones is a beast. There is a reason he is the highest paid wideout. I bet way too much on Ito Smith over 24 yards, so thank God he had his nice cutback run. Matt Ryan seemed to overthrow people. The NFC South has the worse Qbs going into week 3 of any division weirdly enough.

 

Jets:

  • Trevor Siemian: 3/6, 3 yards
  • Luke Falk: 20/25, 198 yards
  • Le’Veon Bell: 21 carries, 68 yards + 10 targets, 10 receptions, 61 yards
  • Ty Montgomery: 3 carries, 25 yards + 3 receptions, 15 yards
  • Jamison Crowder: 4 receptions, 40 yards
  • Robby Anderson: 4 receptions, 81 yards
  • Demaryius Thomas: 1 reception, -1 yards

Browns:

  • Baker Mayfield: 19/35, 325 yards, 1 TD, 1 INT
  • Nick Chubb: 18 carries, 62 yards, 1 TD + 4 targets, 4 receptions, 36 yards
  • D’Ernest Johnson: 3 carries, 8 yards + 4 targets, 3 receptions, 42 yards
  • Odell Beckham, Jr: 10 targets, 6 receptions, 161 yards, 1 TD
  • Jarvis Landry: 7 targets, 3 receptions, 32 yards
  • David Njoku: 1 target, 0 receptions, 0 yards

Browns win 23-3. The Jets didn’t use their timeouts at the end of the game to give Falk reps… either knee it and don’t risk injury or use your timeouts. Baker still didn’t look that good, but Odell taking an 89 yard touchdown to the house helps. Myles Garrett had 3 sacks and even more penalties. He injured Siemian on a roughing the passer. Jarvis Landry and Njoku should play better once Baker does. Bell is still a stud. Mosley and Quinnen Williams were missed for the Jets defense. Robbie Anderson is talented, but he needs a QB that can throw a deep ball. Chubb is great, but Baker and the Browns o-line needs to play better. Lot of penalties in this game. Browns alternate line at -9.5 was real nice.

Ajax fade. Ajax had the dream season last year and I loved watching it. Ajax tied Bayern twice in the group last year, beat Ronaldo (Juventus) in the knockout rounds, and beat Real Madrid at the Bernabeu 4-1.. before finally losing to Tottenham. Van de Beek, the scorer in Ajax’s first leg win against Tottenham, is out this game along with Mazraoui. De Ligt (last year’s captain for Ajax), de Jong, and Dolberg have all transferred for huge deals. Ajax lost 235 million Euros worth of players from last year.. a club record. Quincy Promes was the big off-season signing for Ajax, and as a Sevilla fan I can tell you he is talented, but seems to lack that final third ability that makes players great. Ajax still have Huntelaar, Ziyech, Tadic, and Neres. They still have talent, but last year is going to be near impossible to repeat.

This Lille team has a wild roster.. Euro 2016 Champion Jose Fonte, former Chelsea striker Loic Remy, and former Bayern midfielder Renato Sanches all play roles. Victor Osimhen has 5 goals in 5 Ligue games this year for Lille. Osimhen is about to introduce himself to Champions League. Luiz Araujo, Osimhen, and Jonathan Ikone are super talented and young for Lille. Going to Johan Cruijff Arena is never easy, but I like Lille to keep it close with all of Ajax’s missing players. Lille’s last 6 Champions League games have all seen 2 goals or less. Nicolas Pepe has obviously moved on to Arsenal, but I still like this Lille team. El Ghazi has moved on to Aston Villa.. and got in a fight with Villa’s Captain on the pitch yesterday…

 

Leipzig at +167 for 4 units. Leipzig/Benfica draw at +250 for 4 units. RB Leipzig are leading the Bundesliga after their 1-1 draw with Bayern over the weekend. Timo Werner could play for just about any club in the World. Forsberg, Sabitzer, and Poulsen can all kick a ball. Half of Benfica’s team is injured. I like Leipzig to at least get a draw today. Leipzig’s defense was great all of last year and that shouldn’t change this Champions League season.

Inter -1 at +105 for 1 unit. Slavia Prague are not as good on the road. Inter are 3-0 in the league this year with a 7:1 goal difference. They have been playing solid soccer and I like that to continue at home today (with or without Lukaku). Prague have not lost in their last 19 matches, but that’ll change today.

Monday Night Football – Browns at Jets

69-58-5 on the NFL last season (2018/19) up 26.36 units

9-12 on the NFL this season down 2.09 units 

Will the Browns keep Browning or the Jets keep being the Jets? The Browns had 29842309 penalties last week. They have to clean that up. Trevor Siemian is starting his first game since 2017. That year with the Broncos, Siemian threw 12 Tds and 14 Ints while completing 59% of his passes.

Browns -9.5 at +135 for 3 units. Cleveland will have less penalties than last week. The Jets are 0-6 SU and 0-5-1 ATS in their last six games at home. They have lost by an average of over 13 points in those games. CJ Mosley being out for the Jets is the deal-breaker. He had a pick 6 and played a part in Josh Allen’s fumble in week 1. Once he got hurt, the Bills were able to start moving the ball. Quinnen “pronounces calamari and Kyler Murray the exact same” Williams is also out for the Jets D. The Browns are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games after an ATS loss. I like Cleveland for a big bounceback game here. The Browns haven’t started the season 1-1 or better since they beat the Titans in week 2 in 2015 (Johnny Manziel threw two touchdowns in that win). Odell wants to go off to stick it to Gregg Williams.

Trevor Siemian over 19.5 completions at -110 for 4 units. Siemian can’t play much worse than Darnold did last week. Darnold was 28-41. That is 4.76 yards per attempt. Siemian can throw the ball 5 yards to Bell and Crowder over and over again… Also, I expect the Jets to be down. Gameflow should help this wager.

Jamison Crowder will have over 4.5 receptions at -139 for 3 units. Crowder had 14 catches last week for 99 yards. That is the most catches ever for a wideout without getting 100 yards. I expect Siemian to dump down to him a lot. Bell is active, Sorry for the late post, but I wanted Bell to be active so this line would come down. It moved from -167 to -140.
