Season total: 4-1
Thanks to my favorite “Rivers,” Philip, we enjoyed a worry-free game as the future Hall of Famer threw the rock all night long.
Let’s move ahead to today’s slate and we’ll start with what I call “low hanging fruit.” You take these apples whenever you can get them and this week’s Tree of Life comes to us in the form of the Seahawks secondary aka the tree that keeps on giving.
Cooper Kupp O6.5 receptions (+122) and Robert Woods O5.5 receptions (-104)
Prior to their bye, Kupp totaled a career-high 20 targets and a career-high-tying 11 receptions against Miami in Week 8. Woods finished with 8 targets and 7 catches. Goff threw a whopping 61 times with only 17 points to show for it.
Fact #1: The Seahawks have allowed two receivers to catch at least 8 passes in three straight games
Fact #2: According to PFF, the Seahawks have allowed the most receiving yards to slot WRs (977). The next closest team is the Browns at 694!
Fact #3: Seattle will be without top corners Shaq Griffin and Quinton Dunbar
Emmanuel Sanders O3.5 receptions (+112)
Fact #1: This is a revenge game. Sanders signed a two-year deal with Nola after not being able to come to terms with a Niners team that traded for him last season.
Fact #2: Sanders has logged 4+ catches in four straight games
Fact #3: Sanders was quoted as saying, “I want to kick their ass, and then after the game we can hug it out.”
Nick Chubb O72.5 rush yards (-112)
Fact #1: The Texans have allowed an average of 127 rush yards per game over their last four contests
Fact #2: The forecast in Cleveland calls for a repeat of what occurred in their Week 8 clash with the Raiders that featured swirling winds and rain throughout. That means fewer throws and more runs
Fact #3: Chubb reportedly will “play until he gets tired” following a 4-game absence with an MCL sprain.
Bonus Longshot Anytime TD Scorers:
Marcedes Lewis (+600): Revenge game against his old team (Jaguars)
Eric Ebron (+180): Bengals have allowed a league-high 6 TE TDs over the last five weeks
