3 Crazy Bold Predictions for Week 6!
Every Sunday morning our team of Rob Willette, Ryan McDowell, and Sal Leto bring you their Bold Predictions of the week. Maybe they are out of their minds or maybe they have the player that can win it all for you this week.
Josh Gordon goes off for 150 and 2 touchdowns
In just two games with the Patriots, WR Josh Gordon seems to be settling in. After limiting Gordon’s playing time in his first game with the team in Week Four, the Pats got Gordon more involved last week, resulting in a long touchdown reception. This week, the Patriots face one of the league’s weakest defenses, the Chiefs, who allow nearly 40 fantasy points a game to the receiver position, tenth-worst in the league. While slot WR Julian Edelman is back to take over the underneath work, the deep part of the field belongs to Gordon, especially with WR Chris Hogan iffy with an injury. Gordon catches five balls for over 150 yards and a pair of touchdowns in this shoot out with the Chiefs. – Ryan Mcdowell
Chris Carson, Mike Davis and Marshawn Lynch will all rush for 100 yards in London
The Seahawks have had a 100 yard rusher in three straight games Carson, Davis and Carson again. The Raiders have given up 3 – 100 yard rushers on the season. This week both men will hit the century mark to pace Seattle. But wait who is that lining up on the other side of the field? None other than former Seahawks stud Marshawn “Beast Mode” Lynch. You better believe Lynch will be amped to put it on his former coach who we famously remember didn’t give him the ball at the one yard line in Super Bowl XLIX. – Sal Leto
Both A.J. Green and Tyler Boyd surpass 125 yards receiving
With an Over/Under of 52.5, points are expected in the Steelers-Bengals tussle. It is a green light for most notable skill positions in this game and few have a better setup than Bengals wide receivers. Pittsburgh is 29th in pass defense and has yielded a league-high 13 touchdowns. While Joe Haden has had somewhat of a career renaissance in Pittsburgh, the Bengals have been wise to move their top targets around, with Green particularly moving around the formation more than we have seen in the past. With a plus matchup and high target upside in this contest, both Cincinnati receivers are elite plays. – Rob Willette
