New England Patriots versus New York Jets NFL Real Money Fantasy Preview 12-27-2015
Two AFC East division rivals meet in Week 16 as the New York Jets will meet the New England Patriots. NFL fantasy football GMs can tune to CBS TV on Sunday December 27th at 1PM Eastern Time to track the scoring results of their one day real money roster picks.
After six straight games being held under 30 points the New England Patriots put up 33 points on a bad Tennessee Titans team. The Patriots have been hit hard with injuries to their wide receiver and running back position that has impacted fantasy value on their playmakers.
The Jets have had four straight good defensive performances. They held Tennessee to eight points two weeks ago and last week held the Cowboys to just 16 points. But those results came against poor offensive teams. In the first meeting with New England it was New York allowing 30 points to the Patriots in a loss. The Patriots simply abandoned the run in that contest with Tom Brady passing for 355 yards and two touchdowns. Everyone knew that Rob Gronkowski was going to be heavily targeted yet he led the Patriots with 11 catches for 108 yards and a touchdown.
Here are the Fantasy Football Picks
Don’t expect the Patriots to waste downs running the ball on the Jets defense. New York had trouble covering Rob Gronkowski. He has touchdown receptions in three straight and 8 of his 13 games played this season.

Green Bay Packers versus Arizona Cardinals NFL Fantasy Preview 12-20-2015
A battle between playoff contenders as the Arizona Cardinals will meet the Green Bay Packers. DFS draft managers can tune to FOX at 4:25PM Eastern Time on Sunday December 27th to follow the results of their roster picks.
The Arizona Cardinals have the top offense in the NFL as they average 422 yards per game. They are second best in the league by putting up 32 points per game. They are coming off a 40 point performance last week in a win at Philadelphia.
Green Bay is in a back to back road trip out west in this spot. The 30 points put up on the Raiders last week were greatly aided by Oakland turnovers. Arizona has played clean this season. The location is key here in a climate controlled stadium in Arizona instead of the cold December weather of Green Bay.
Here are the Fantasy Football Picks
Carson Palmer has been healthy this year and is putting up some quality numbers this season. He has completed 64.3% of his throws for 4277 yards with 32 touchdowns and nine picks. He has thrown touchdown passes in 13 of his 14 games this season. Palmer has multiple touchdown passes in ten games with games with three touchdowns or greater in six. The past two home games for Carson Palmer came against good defensive teams. He passed for 310 yards and two touchdown passes against Minnesota and had 317 yards passing with four touchdowns in a Week 11 win against Cincinnati. He faced another good defensive team but this time on the road to Seattle where he threw for 363 yards and three touchdowns.

Arizona Cardinals QB
Second year wide receiver Josh Brown is showing improvement with the Arizona Cardinals in 2015. He is way ahead of his numbers from a season ago mainly due to the fact that Carson Palmer has played every game. Brown is the deep threat who has caught 58 passes this year for 933 yards with six touchdowns. He is averaging 16.1 yards per catch this season. With the run game producing for Arizona and with an intermediate route runner in Larry Fitzgerald lingering in pass patterns it will open the field for big plays for Brown.
