New England Patriots – As crazy as it sounds, I initially had the Patriots as the Fade this week. And it’s mostly because of what I’ve preached in other articles this year: if there’s a D/ST with a similar floor/ceiling that’s cheaper, I’d prefer to go that route. Not to mention Matthew Judon is currently on the COVID/Reserve list but there appears to be a sliver of hope he’ll be activated in time for Sunday’s matchup. Ultimately, I can’t look away from a Bill Belichick defense going against a rookie quarterback at home. The over/under is very low at 41.5 points and the Patriots are favored by 16.5 points. That means Vegas is expecting roughly 13 points (give or take) for Jacksonville? Sign me up if you can fit...
