We try to lay out a few Over/Unders that we feel good about for each slate, and encourage you to take our advice, but put your own twist on it! We aren't perfect and we can't see the future - our goal is merely to help you make the most informed entries you can.

Our Favorite Picks
1. Sam Darnold vs ATL - 16 points - UNDER (Trent)
If you've been following our blog for the last three weeks, you probably know I've taken Darnold UNDER every week and it has paid off. Early on in the season, he was only hitting 16+ points with unsustainable rushing TD's. That has now cooled off, and 16 points is a high mark for him to hit. ATL is a pretty good matchup, but I still think Darnold will need to get it done on his legs if he wants to hit 16 - and I'm willing to bet against it.
2. Devonta Smith vs DET - 14 points - OVER (Trent)
I'm super excited to watch Devonta Smith this week. Detroit has an absolute Achilles heel, and it is speedy WR's. They really don't have any defensive backs that can cover these guys, and they've been getting torched all year long. Smith is one of the quickest WR's in the league, and I'm looking for him to get some deep shots this week propelling him over 14 points!
3. Tee Higgins vs NYJ - 14 points - OVER (Trent)
Chase has all the hype right now, but Higgins has actually out-targeted him in their time together on the field. Chase has had a few explosive plays and TD's fall his way that have made him look like a much better fantasy asset; however, Higgins is still the #1 target for Joe Burrow. We're going to take advantage of the low prop of 14 this week while the attentions all remains on Chase.
4. Ja'Marr Chase vs NYJ - 18.5 points - UNDER (Trent)
We're still huge fans of Chase, and his matchup vs. the Jets should be a good one. 18.5 is just a tough mark to take the over on - even for top WR's. He is a must-start in regular fantasy, but we're going to play the under here.
5. Tua Tagovailoa vs BUF - 15.5 points - OVER (Trent)
Tua has played 3 games this year and he's been over 17 points in all 3. Just last week he was the #1 QB on the week with 28.5 points! The Bills defense is good, but there is no reason to think Tua is going to have a bad week. He's startable in all formats, and 15.5 is a crazy low line!
6. Zack Moss vs MIA - 10 points - OVER (Trent)
Moss has been over 10 points in 4 out of 5 games this year. He has taken over the main role in the Buffalo backfield, and he should easily be able to eclipse 10 points vs. a weak Miami defense. In week 2, the Bills rushed for 108 yards and 3 TD vs Miami. At that point it was. Moss and Singletary split snaps more evenly, but since then, Moss has taken over.
