Carolina Panthers - @ Detroit Lions
Okay folks let the image of the Panthers allowing 52 points to the Steelers on TNF fade out a bit. Yes, it did happen. But the Panthers are heading to Detroit to play a Lions team that has allowed 19 sacks and had seven turnovers in their last three games while only scoring more than 20 points once in that span. Don’t lose trust in this Panthers team after arguably their worst performance of the season. I think the Panthers bounce back in a big way this week.
Tennessee Titans - @ Indianapolis Colts
You could make an argument that both the Colts and Titans are worth streaming, but I would choose to be on the Titans. This Titans team has allowed more than 20 points just twice and have had either multiple sacks or a turnover in every game this season. Not the safest bet this week, but I think the Titans do a better job hindering the Colts over the Colts hindering the Titans.

New York Giants – VS Tampa Bay Buccaneers
Yes, this is a bet that the New York Giants will both play well and take advantage of a Buccaneers team that has allowed multiple sacks and had multiple turnovers in every game since the season opener. Simply put, the Bucs are a sloppy team and I think the Giants should be able to put up some amount of usable fantasy points even if this matchup turns into a shootout.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers - @ New York Giants
In what looks to be either a turnover-filled slog fest or a pure shootout, I’m going to look towards a mix of these possible outcomes. The Giants have allowed multiple sacks in 7-of-9 games and scored 20-plus points in 4-of-9 games. Coming off a short week after playing on MNF, I don’t think the Giants are that likely to follow up with another decent performance against the Bucs. To be clear, you would be betting on a poor Bucs defense here, but the Giants haven’t proven to be an offensive powerhouse either.
