Start em', Sit em', Flex em'
Sweater Weather - Break them out! It's too chilly to be rocking your t-shirts. Swap the closets and get cozy friends.
Ryan Tannehill (QB Titans) - In the last 16 games, Tannehill has identical numbers to reigning MVP, Patrick Mahomes. Is this due to not being coached by Adam Gase? Probably. After losing to the Steelers, the Titans are looking to bounce back big, and the Bengals will be taking a big beating.
The Stock Market - Speaking of stocks, what the hell is going on with the Stock Market? It is probably the rising COVID cases, uncertainty in the upcoming election, and skewered Q3 earnings. We are not financial analysts, but it may be time to slide the stocks on the bench and liquidate until the storm has weathered.
Myles Gaskins (RB Dolphins) - The Rams are no joke. That front-seven led by the big bad Aaron Donald is scary. Gaskin has been a surprise, but don't expect a big game from him this week.
Comfort Food -The weather is getting colder, it is time for beer cheese, soups, and hearty hungover foods for your Sunday spreads.
Diontae Johnson (WR Steelers) - Emerging as one of Big Ben's new favorite target, with 10 targets in every game he's finished.

League Standing and Weekly Matchups
No perfect teams anymore. The league gap is closing in, and if the injury bug keeps appearing, it could get closer. This week we have Tondo against Hanold, Basel versus Densen, Zimmer facing Ben, and Ford up vs. James. Birthday boy Zach gets the bye.
