Each week of the NFL season, we will be breaking down individual matchups and providing you with some fantasy football advice and lineup recommendations based on matchups that we love, matchups that we hate, and some high-risk/high-reward players, as well. Pittsburgh has a lot of guys who can make plays but also a lot who will give them up. Just email firstname.lastname@example.org with your new FantasyAces username - and boom, that's it! To counter that, look for Belichick and offensive coordinator Josh McDaniels to install a game plan full of screen passes and off-tackle runs between the 20s. Fellow rookie Dak Prescott threw for 247 yards and three scores in the win. As of press time it's unknown if the star wideout, who led the National Football League in touchdowns in 2016, will play but it sure seems like a stretch. The Seahawks won't be a pushover by any means, but Ryan shouldn't be faded just due to their reputation. Through his first 10 games in 2016, he had a TD-to-INT ratio of 25:7 and a passer rating of 96.0; over his next seven games (including last week's wild-card win over the Giants), he threw an astounding 19 touchdown passes against zero picks while posting a passer rating of 121.7. Aaron Rodgers will still have a ton of weapons at his disposal and it's very possible that a Rodgers win in Dallas will only add to his legend. Seattle walked away 26-24 victors, but not without questions surrounding a non-call on a potential game-changing pass interference on Richard Sherman in coverage of Julio Jones.
SEATTLE +5, over Atlanta: I'm in a bad slump, time to stop over-analyzing and stat-mining, and just wing it this week, let's see what happens. The big question here might be whether or not the playoff stage is too big for a young Cowboys team that dominated the regular season.
This is a game that I am dying to see. He should be kept in all lineups as usual.
China says U.S. aluminum complaint lacks factual basis
Nine of 14 US aluminum smelters have halted production since 2011, with only one operating at full capacity, the USA trade office said.
Only once this season has a team held the Falcons to less than three touchdowns. Graham has been fairly successful against the Falcons in his career, mostly in his time with the Saints. He caught six for 89 in Week 6, so there's good reason to make Graham one of the top tight end plays of the week. In a very thin position, only Travis Kelce could be valued higher than Graham for the Divisional Round. After earning a first round bye and the number two seed in the NFC, the Falcons will look to defend their home turf behind the legs of Devonta Freeman and the arm of MVP candidate Matt Ryan. Dallas allowed the seventh-most passing yards in the regular season, an average of 260.4 per game. Truth be told, he's been downright unplayable on the road, save for two games (Week 4 vs the Jets and shockingly Week 10 vs the Patriots). Watch for Russell Wilson to carry the load this time. The Packers would have won 9 games in a row by the time they played the Patriots in a Super Bowl.
Tevin Coleman (RB, ATL) - Coleman was completely shut down the by 'Hawks in Week 6, totaling 17 yards. The Cardinals went on to the NFC Championship where they lost to the Panthers in Carolina. Freeman is always a threat to score, however, especially at home where 11 of his 13 touchdowns have come. His performance against the Lions seemingly came out of nowhere as he gashed their defense repeatedly.
After a lackluster Wild Card weekend that saw the closest matchup decided by two scores, the NFL Playoffs continue with the Divisional round on January 14 and 15, with two games played on both days. For instance, in the Dolphins-Steelers game last week, the wrong conclusion was that the Dolphins proved they could stand up to the Steelers physically, as evidenced by Jay Ajayi's 204 yards rushing. Much was expected of the Falcons this year, and when they faltered midway in the season the fans went sour on them.
