November 16th, 2012
I’ll be honest, this is not a great week for upsets. The Rams are a slight underdog and I think they’ll beat the Jets, but that’s just too easy. This all about being bold and that’s why I picked Andrew Luck and the Colts out-dueling Tom Brady and his Patriots. 86% of NFL RUSH Fantasy players have the Patriots winning this Sunday.
Both teams come in with a 6-3 record and both are bringing a win streak into the game (Colts four in a row, Patriots three).
The biggest difference in this game will be Andrew Luck. He gets to face the Patriots soft defense, which is ranked 25th overall and 29th against the pass. In Andrew’s last duel against Aaron Rodgers (and a really good defense), he stepped up and played tremendously. Expect to see the same thing this week as Luck rises to the challenge and oh-so-slightly edges a win.
Hey Patriots! You’re on Upset Alert!
