Week 11 NFL Picks
Jaguars at Browns
Dan Schalk: Jacksonville Jaguars. Any Browns quarterback against this Jaguars defense? LOL.
Brandon Reid: Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jags are going to feast on the Browns. They will also run all over them. Fantasy points a plenty for the Jags backfield this week.
Orlando Torres: Cleveland Browns. This is a trap game in my eyes for the Jags. Fournette still isn’t right with his ankle, and looking at last week the Browns really want to win a game. This game is in Cleveland so how bout them Brownies!!!
Buccaneers at Dolphins
Dan Schalk: Tampa Bay Buccaneers. Did you watch Miami play on Monday night? Their defense is downright terrible and Smokin’ Jay is too busy ripping schmangs to play football.
Brandon Reid: Miami Dolphins. I hate picking the Dolphins, but the Bucs have been the biggest disappointment in the NFC this year. Their defense is not as good as it was supposed to be, and now Jameis Winston is out. The Bucs could win this game, but I don’t have the guts to pick them. The Dolphins are one point favorites.
Orlando Torres: Miami Dolphins. Not a fan of the Week One bye and we’re seeing the results. Both teams are banged up, but the Bucs are hurting the most.
Ravens at Packers
Dan Schalk: Green Bay Packers. I like the Ravens defense more, but I do not trust Joe Flacco on the road, or at home, or in London. I wouldn’t trust Joe Flacco to babysit my children.
Brandon Reid: Baltimore Ravens. The Ravens need a win to get to .500, and keep their playoff chances alive. They cannot afford to lose to an Aaron Rodgers-less Packers team, who also has all of their running backs banged up and questionable. This would be a gritty win by the Packers if they could pull it out.
Orlando Torres: Green Bay Packers. A few weeks ago on the MFST Podcast I told NewBreids that the Packers would not suck it up when Rodgers went down and would still win a few games and this was one of them I picked, so I gotta stick to my word.
Lions at Bears
Dan Schalk: Detroit Lions. Mitchell Trubisky actually looked like an NFL quarterback last week, but that doesn’t mean he’s ready to beat a playoff caliber team in Detroit.
Brandon Reid: Detroit Lions. The Bears have been playing .500 football for the last month or so, but they are not scoring many points. I can’t see this game staying in the teens for Detroit, and that’s where Chicago would need it to be to pull this one out.
Orlando Torres: Detroit Lions. Both defenses are going to play physical, but even after throwing for more than four times last week, Trubisky is still very young in his career to out duel Stafford in a shootout.
Rams at Vikings
Dan Schalk: LA Rams. Why not? Goff is better than Keenum and honestly, the defenses matchup nicely. So give me the better head coach and I’m loving me some Sean McVay—2017 Coach of the Year.
Brandon Reid: Minnesota Vikings. This is a huge opportunity for the Los Angeles Rams. An opportunity for a huge statement win. An opportunity for a historical season. Unfortunately, the Vikings don’t care about any of that. They’re going to put their pads on and hit hard on Sunday. I also believe the Vikings are as talented offensively, despite who plays quarterback. I have to go with the home team.
Orlando Torres: Minnesota Vikings. Are we getting a playoff preview here? What a game this is going to be. I’m going to be focused on this game early on. The Rams have the Saints next week so is it crazy to say that this feels like a must win for Goff and company with the Hawks trailing them? Not so much, but I got Case Keenum pulling this out at home for his revenge game.
Cardinals at Texans
Dan Schalk: Houston Texans. Tom Savage will savagely throw for 192 yards and a touchdown. That will be enough to win.
Brandon Reid: Houston Texans. As we talked about on My Fantasy Podcast this week, Arizona is one of the most inept offenses in the league. I think the home team should squeak this one out, somehow.
Orlando Torres: Houston Texans. Houston just needs a win. They’ve haven’t had something positive happen since the World Series. They lost JJ Watt, Watson, then Kaepernick beat out Watt for ‘Citizen of the Year’ in GQ magazine.. tough time for Houston fans.
Chiefs at Giants
Dan Schalk: Kansas City Chiefs. Why is Ben McAdoo still employed?
Brandon Reid: Kansas City Chiefs. Kansas City is coming to town??? Oh. My. Lord.
Orlando Torres: Kansas City Chiefs. The Chiefs absolutely needed this bye, and the Giants.. well they’ve been on bye since Week 6. Giants get destroyed here.
Redskins at Saints
Dan Schalk: Washington Redskins. The Saints are doing remarkable things both offensively and defensively. I just have a weird feeling they will drop this game—it could be the chinese food I ate last night though.
Brandon Reid: New Orleans Saints. I am all up on this Saints bandwagon now. The scores of their games have been ridiculous lately. The defense has improved, and the offense is the deepest in the league. Washington is a solid team, but I can’t see them keeping up with the Saints at home, point-for-point, without turning the ball over at least once. Washington is number one in the league in fumbles lost.
Orlando Torres: New Orleans Saints. Another great game featuring a possible SB contender. New Orleans will have their hands full here, don’t think the Redskins are going to back down from the Saints run game or defense, but I like Brees at home to make those extra plays to set them up for a showdown next week with the Rams.
Bills at Chargers
Dan Schalk: LA Chargers. I haven’t picked the Bills to win yet this season, why start now with a rookie quarterback making his first start cross-country?
Brandon Reid: LA Chargers. The Chargers have a rookie quarterback, making his first NFL start, coming to town this week. Philip Rivers should take this as a personal challenge. No way you let that rookie beat you, on your home turf, with Hollywood watching.
Orlando Torres: LA Chargers. Say goodbye to any chance at the post season if you’re the Bills. Throwing the rookie QB into the starting position on the road is never ideal, and the Chargers should take full advantage of this.
Bengals at Broncos
Dan Schalk: Cincinnati Bengals. I have decided I will not pick the Broncos to win again this season unless Paxton Lynch plays.
Brandon Reid: Cincinnati Bengals. Holy Denver Defense Batman! Where have you gone? Denver…wow! I cannot pick you to beat just about any NFL team right now. This could be the perfect time to turn around a five game losing streak, but with the way they’re playing, I’m just not going to predict it. Let the mountain snow slide continue.
Orlando Torres: Denver Broncos. Ehh just thinking about how horrible this game could be makes me cringe. Both teams play good defense, but are sloppy as hell on offense. Being that this takes place at mile high I’m taking the Broncos here.
Patriots at Raiders
Dan Schalk: New England Patriots. The Patriots will make it to the Super Bowl. That’s all I have to say about that.
Brandon Reid: Oakland Raiders. The Patriots are still the worst defense in football. They are giving up 408 yards per game. This is an odd year where there really isn’t a dominant team. The New England Patriots will not be in the Super Bowl. You don’t make it that far with the worst defense in the league. It’s do-or-die time for the Raiders, who I thought would be in the Super Bowl. Side note, this game is being played in Mexico City.
Orlando Torres: New England Patriots. Looking forward to this game in Mexico City. Both teams should be fresh off their byes, but the Patriots have been in Colorado for some time practicing in the high altitude to prepare for their game in Mexico. What aren’t the Patriots good at?
Eagles at Cowboys
Dan Schalk: Philadelphia Eagles. No Sean Lee means no victory.
Brandon Reid: Philadelphia Eagles. The Dallas defense will have to play one hell of a game to stay in this one. Dak will also have to play mistake free, AND make some big plays to Dez Bryant. Dak Prescott is a competitor and a winner, but Carson Wentz is now an elite NFL quarterback.
Orlando Torres: Dallas Cowboys. Dallas are in desperation mode and this showdown with Philly plays a huge part in their fate for the season going forward. Tyron Smith is out again, no Sean Lee, no Zeke, but guess what I’m still taking Dak to knock off some steam from this streaming Eagles team on Sunday.
Falcons at Seahawks
Dan Schalk: Atlanta Falcons. The Falcons are a better football team. Seattle, if they make the playoffs will not win one game.
Brandon Reid: Atlanta Falcons. I keep waiting on the Falcons to break through the glass and get back to that number one scoring team they were last season. This is a stiff test against the Seahawks in Seattle, but no Richard Sherman definitely has to make Matt Ryan a little more comfortable. Very impressive win for Atlanta over Dallas last week. That may have been the beginning of their Super Bowl surge.
Orlando Torres: Seattle Seahawks. The Seattle defense is no longer the same. No more Sherman for the season, same goes for Kam Bam Chancellor who plays a huge role in the defense, but Atlanta hasn’t typically been a scary offense this season to take advantage of a struggling defense.
