NFL Fantasy Draft News 12-18-2015
New York Jets versus Dallas Cowboys NFL Real Money Fantasy Preview 12-19-2015
The NFL has action for fantasy GM’s to play into on Saturday December 19th as the Dallas Cowboys will host the New York Jets. DFS draft managers can tune to NFL Network at 8:30PM Eastern Time to follow the results of their one day real money line.
The Dallas Cowboys have struggled looking for offense without their starting quarterback Tony Romo. He is out for the season and getting the start on Saturday night will be Matt Cassel once again. The Cowboys have sunk near the bottom of the league in the key offensive categories in 2015. They sit 30th and third worst in the NFL in scoring as the team averages just 17.7 points per game. Last week in a loss at Green Bay the Cowboys were limited to just seven points.
The Jets have plenty to play for as they enter this contest. At 8-5 they are tied with Kansas City and Pittsburgh for the race for two available AFC wildcard spots with just three games remaining. The Jets have won three straight after a 30-8 home victory to Tennessee.
Here are the Fantasy Football Picks
New York Jets RB
Play on Chris Ivory
Looking at the game plan that the Packers used on the Cowboys, it could suit the New York Jets fine. They ran the football 44 times for 230 yards and took the safe route to victory since the Dallas offense showed very little ability to score points without Romo. Look for the Jets to do the same here. Look for Chris Ivory to get a high number of carries against a downtrodden offense. Heck it worked last week when the Jets hosted a bad offensive team in Tennessee and they came away with a 30-8 victory. Against the Titans Ivory rushed for 101 yards on 22 carries.
Play on New York Jets Defense
The Jets defense should find some great success in this spot. With their game plan to ground and pound it will limit the amount of plays for the Cowboys on offense. The Jets sit fifth in total defense and that gets upgraded when they face an inept offensive team like Dallas.
Buffalo Bills versus Washington Redskins NFL Fantasy Preview 12-20-2015
The Washington Redskins are very much in the hunt for the NFC East title as they battle the Buffalo Bills. NFL fantasy GM’s can tune to CBS on Sunday December 20th at 1PM Eastern Time to track the results of their one day fantasy league draft picks.
Buffalo suffered a loss that was detrimental to their ability to reach the playoffs in 2015. They dropped a 23-20 decision at Philadelphia to drop them to 6-7 and two games back of the Chiefs, Jets and Steelers for the two AFC wildcard playoff spots with just three games remaining. The Bills have lost three of four all the losses coming on the road. They play their fifth road game in six games.
Washington is tied with the Eagles and Giants for the NFC East lead after they came away with a 24-21 road win at Chicago last week so there is much to play for the Redskins in this spot. They have traded wins with losses the past eight weeks
Here is the NFL Fantasy Pick for your Real Money League
Washington Redskins K
Play on Dustin Hopkins
The Washington Redskins have had issues finishing drives and getting into the end zone. They often settle for field goals in the red zone. Their kicker Dustin Hopkins has made 85% of his field goal tries this season. He kicked three field goals in Week 14 at home to Dallas and in Week 10 at home to New Orleans he kicked four field goals. He is also a perfect 27 of 27 on extra points.
