Thursday Night Football
Week 16 is upon us, and my first MKF game will be Rapid Fire for the Jaguars vs. Jets game. We know the upside to Michael Carter is his pass-catching ovr rushing with his sason high yardage on the ground being 77 and only three of 11 games being above 50 yards. James Robinson has had six games above 70 yards with 75 in his last game. The Jets give up the third most rushing yards per game which sets up JRob for a nice day. For the QB’s in this one, both Zach Wilson and Trevor Lawrence have pretty limited passing ceilings. 4/8 of Lawrence’s last games and 2/4 of Wilson’s last games have been under 200 yard passing days. With Lawrence being able to lean on the run better in this matchup, I like Wilson’s odds to be forced to throw more. So give me James Robinson over Michael Carter in rushing yards paired with Zach Wilson over Trevoew Lawrence in passing yards to go hand-in-hand here.
My second MKF game will be the Fantasy Challenge with an aim of 70.5 fantasy points between three players in the Rams vs. Vikings game. Cooper Kupp is currently 88.9 fantasy points ahead of the WR2 for fantasy right now, and has had back to back games above 31 fantasy points. Kupp has hit six weeks above 30 fantasy points this season which displays his amazing ceiling. Justin Jefferson was the WR3 before the week started averaging 19.8 fantasy points. Jefferson has been above his average six times. Both Kupp and Jefferson’s targets have been great through the year. My last player selection will be Odell Beckham Jr., who has had 2/4 of his last games at the 19 fantasy point mark. The Vikings also give up the most PPG to WR’s this season as well. Get those W’s.
