With three weeks to go in the 2019 NFL season, a few teams have locked in a playoff spot while a few more can clinch a playoff berth with a win this weekend. There are six games this weekend where both teams are mathematically still involved in the playoff picture, either fighting for a first-round bye, division title, or a wild-card spot. This includes the Sunday night game between the Buffalo Bills and Pittsburgh Steelers, where both teams enter the weekend in the two wild-card spots in the AFC playoff picture. With so many critical games this weekend, expect a lot of entertaining games with close outcomes.
To help fantasy football players with their roster construction, three of our writers have provided some insight on which players they would start, would sit, and consider a sleeper for this week. Be sure to follow all of them on twitter and ask any of The Scorecrow’s fantasy writers for fantasy advice.

This is the best Monday Night Football game so far this year. The undefeated San Francisco 49ers face off against their divisional rival Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks are 7-2 and need to win this game if they want to win the division. The 49ers can take a three-game lead in the division and be in control of there own destiny for the top seed in the NFC with a victory. Here are my top players for tonight’s game.

All my plays are based on DraftKings pricing. Its also important to note that when I list a player as a fade, I do not mean I will have 0% of them, but I will be way under the field as far as exposure goes, and likely will not play them on single entry lineups.
Welcome in. Hopefully, everyone had a great week and is as excited as I am for this week’s games. Hopefully, last week you were able to construct a nice winning lineup based on some of the plays mentioned in last week’s article. However, you aren’t here to reminisce about last week.
Last week’s Thursday night game was a good one, with the Eagles defeating the Packers 34-27 thanks to a tipped Aaron Rodgers pass that turned into the game ending interception. After the first few Thursday night games which being boring, we get another great matchup as the Los Angeles Rams travel to Seattle to take on the Seahawks.

The goal of the cash game article is to outline some of the safer plays, while also, providing options that will help you create the most optimal builds. The whole point of it all is to make some money. Sometimes we won’t, but putting ourselves in the best position to is the main thing.

What a start to the 2019 NFL season! Antonio Brown has turned the Oakland Raiders into The Sopranos, while Julio Jones just signed a contract extension that is fully guaranteed. However, tomorrow we can get away from all the nonsense and enjoy 13 great football games. To help fantasy football players with their roster construction, three of our writers have provided some insight on which players they would start, would sit, and consider a sleeper for week one.

Everyone has a different strategy when it comes to drafting their fantasy team. Some like to go “zero RB”, while others like to use the best player available approach. While there isn’t necessarily a correct way to draft your team, every fantasy expert will recommend to build up your running back depth in the middle rounds. Each year there is a running back that gets drafted in the middle rounds that turns out to be a plug and play starter for fantasy owners. In this fantasy battle, we will take a look at two potential options currently going in the eighth round according to Fantasy Football Calculator.
2018 was a better year than most Seahawks fans probably anticipated. The team set out to run the ball more, and that was exactly what they did by leading the NFL in rushing yards per game with an average of 160 yards. With a much-improved run game, the team didn’t have to rely on Russell Wilson trying to make a play every down behind one of the worst offensive lines in the league. The Seahawks finished the season 10-6, making it their seventh straight winning season and their sixth playoff appearance in that same time frame. While they lost a heart-breaker against the Dallas Cowboys 24-22 in the Wild Card Round of the playoffs, it’s hard to be upset when your team overperforms during the regular season.

The 2019 NFL season is right around the corner! The Hall of Fame Game between the Atlanta Falcons and Denver Broncos is tonight, meaning we have just five weeks till opening night.

The Seattle Seahawks finished the season at 10-6 and got themselves to a Wild Card berth. They wound up losing to the Dallas Cowboys 24-22 but for a team that wasn’t supposed to do much, they had a nice season. What can they do to topple the Rams this year in the NFC West?
It is here! It is finally here! We have scratched and clawed our way through 15 grueling weeks for a chance to contend for the title and the championship is upon us. Week 15 was brutal to fantasy owners so here is to hoping that Week 16 can go a little more according to plan. I will not recommend any long shots or dart throws in this week’s Start Em’ Sit Em’ because we can’t afford to be wrong. No more hunches. No more speculations. The only thing that matters is who is going to score the most points this week. So let’s get to it. I recommend that you start and sit the following players if you want the best chance at taking down the title!
