Buffalo vs. Indianapolis

Open: N/A
Press time: N/A


Two bad offenses and some cold weather should make this an ugly game, perhaps reducing it to a duel of running games. Frank Gore gets a nice enough draw against a Buffalo defense that's struggled to stop the run since trading Marcell Dareus, while LeSean McCoy is as always one of the top projected running backs on the slate. I do worry about the Tyrod Taylor situation complicating the circumstances around McCoy, reducing him to tournament consideration for me in DFS, but there should be substantial volume at the very least since Buffalo would be hard-pressed to fall far behind against Indianapolis' tame offense.

Carolina vs. Minnesota

Open: 42 O/U, MIN -1
Press time: 40 O/U, MIN -2.5
