Thursday Night Football

Playing some MORE or LESS for tonight’s game! More specifically, MKF’s 3/4 MORE or LESS Fantasy Points game. Taking into account our Week 3 projections, I’m riding with the Panthers for a relatively big game tonight. It’s never a good idea to bet against CMC, so I’ll be going Christian McCaffrey MORE than 24.5 Fantasy Points. We have DJ Moore projected at 16.4 FP for tonight, but he could get there much quicker with a TD (current projection at 0.5), so I’m also taking DJ Moore MORE than 15.5 Fantasy Points. It’s very possible the Panthers don’t ask Sam Darnold to do much, so I’m taking LESS than 18.5 Fantasy Points. Finally, one of the only bright spots for the Texans, I’m taking Brandin Cooks MORE than 14.5 Fantasy Points. Just need three of those four to hit, and I’ll 3X my money! - Ben Kukainis

Sunday Football

Not to be a Bears homer, but I will be playing the MKF MORE or LESS featuring Baker Mayfield and Justin Fields. Mayfield has scored 13.64 and then 18.52 fantasy points in the first two weeks of football. Going into this Bears game with a banged up left shoulder, leading a run-first offense, being tied for 28th in the NFL for passing attempts and facing a Bears defense that filled the stat sheet last week - I am not optimistic for Baker’s fantasy day. Rushing Quarterbacks are a cheat code for fantasy with rushing yards being worth .1 fantasy points per yard. Tyrod Taylor was lighting the Browns defense up before his injury last week both as a passer (threw 90.9% completion rate and a TD) and as a rusher (scored with his legs). Justin Fields rushed the ball 10 times last game, which did not amount to much but can be lethal. Fields also saw Allen Robinson drop what should have been a TD. I’ll take Baker Mayfield LESS than 18.5 fantasy points and Justin Fields MORE than 18.5 fantasy points.

Another MKF game I will be playing is the Fantasy Challenge where you select three players (one at least from two teams), select your point goal and deposit. I had to participate in the Rams vs. Buccaneers game for this. Seeing the likes of Mike Evans and Julio Jones have solid weeks last week after starting slow, immediately makes me think of Robert Woods who I believe will get going in this game after his nine target outing last week. Antonio Brown is out due to COVID in this matchup, which makes selecting Mike Evans and Chris Godwin as my other picks a no brainer. Evans has 15 targets on the year, and Godwin has 19 on an offense that will continue to air it out.
