Thursday Night Football
Going back to More or Less (3.6x) again for the Patriots-Falcons matchup. My first pick is Kyle Pitts less than 65.5 receiving yards. Bill Belichick has a history of shutting down young offensive weapons and I expect Pitts to see a lot of bracket coverage. He might be able to sneak in a TD in the red zone so I’m staying away from fantasy points and just focusing on receiving yards. For our other More or Less pick, I am going with Damien Harris to get more than 62.5 rushing yards. While Rhamondre Stevenson looked great in Harris’ absence last week, I expect both players to be able to run the ball effectively on this Falcons defense. Harris has been pretty reliable all season, exceeding 80+ rushing yards in 3 of his last 4 games, and while he may not reach 80, I expect Harris to continue to have success on the ground tonight.

College Football Saturday
Week 11 is here as the season keeps flying by. I will be playing MKF’s More or Less for the Titans vs. Texans game involving the RB’s. D’Onta Foreman carried the ball 11 times to Adrian Peterson’s eight and Jeremy McNichols four. No McNichols this week due to injury, so Foreman may see a bump in usage both due to this and the possibility that the Titans go up early in this one. The Texans also give up the 2nd most yards per game on the ground. On the other side of the ball, Brandin Cooks is coming off of a 14 target game heading into a matchup where he plays the Titans defense giving up the 6th most passing yards per game. The Titans have also been the most fantasy football friendly defense to WR’s. Cooks has had receiving yards over 68.5 five times this year so far. Selecting D’Onta Foreman more than 44.5 rushing yards and Brandin Cooks more than 68.5 receiving yards for this slate.
My second MKF selection will be another More or Less but with a fantasy focus in the Dolphins vs. Jets game. The Jets give up the most fantasy points per game (39.5) to RB’s this year, and seeing this as a game where Myles Gaskin should see plenty of touches I like his opportunity in this one. Gaskin had six catches in Week 9, so I am hoping he gets similar usage here to bump his PPR (points per reception) ceiling up. Corey Davis for the Jets has game five of his seven games result in seven or more targets. Davis plays the Dolphins who surrender the third most points per game to WR’s. Davis has had four games above 11.5 in his seven, with two of those being 21+ fantasy points. Selecting Myles Gaskin more than 12.5 fantasy points with Corey Davis more than 11.5 fantasy points for this matchup.
