Trusting a Patriots is like dating a girl who says she simply has man friends. It’s a risky endeavor. This is the reason why I do not trust Sony Michel to rush for more than 1,120 yards in 2019.
Michel had 920 yards last year on 209 rushing attempts and had four games where he rushed for 100 yards or more. While he’ll likely have a few big games, the Patriots change their game plan like a chameleon week and may lean onto James White or Rex Burkhead at any time. Since 2001, the Pats have only had four running backs run for 1,000 yards or more in a season (Blount, Ridley,??Green-Ellis and??Antowain Smith). All it requires is one fumble to become abandoned in Bill Belichick’s doghouse therefore the UNDER is the drama.
They have a look of a team on the rise although the Jets have been a group that has toiled with a playoff drought for nearly eight seasons at the AFC East. QB Sam Darnold will soon be entering his second season and played well in stretches during his rookie season but it’s the purchase of gift through free service that will make them a power to be reckoned with.
Le’Veon Bell is the top running back for Gang Green because Curtis Martin was around the group and should let Darnold the assurance to ditch it off to him if his recievers do not get split. The Jets defense is going to wreak havoc on opposing offenses. New York nabbed MLB CJ Mosley in the Ravens and drafted DT Quinnen Williams out of Alabama to match DT Leonard Williams (no relation). It might come down to the last weeks when the J-E-T-S are confronting the likes of the Dolphins and Bills however eight wins appears reasonable for 2019.
As a result, not and playing a complete 16-game program surpassing 2,500 passing yards in a season is sort of difficult to do. Well, Josh Allen pulled off that with just 2,074 passing yards in 2018 and that I find it hard to envision 3,150 being surpassed by him at 2019. Allen only finished 52.8 percent of his passes last year and also his average yards per attempt had been 6.48. They ranked dead last to get a quarterback in the NFL, to place those two stats into standpoint.
There hasn’t been much advancement for tight end or wide receiver when you have a take a look at the Bills roster. The Bills added John Brown, who’s a WR3 posing as a WR1, also TE Tyler Kroft, who’s much more of a red-zone target than possession receiver. Requesting 3,151 passing yards in this offense looks laughable although I think Allen could have a season with his ability.
After the Dolphins obtained Josh Rosen in the Cardinals they looked to be about an upward trend but upcoming program and looking at their roster, it is likely to be a very long year for Miami. The Dolphins’ first four games are against playoff teams from last season (Ravens, Patriots, Cowboys, Chargers) and they play 10 teams that had winning records at 2018.
Miami has the cheapest projected win according to the best prize at the draft and oddsmakers is Heisman Trophy favorite??Tua Tagovailoa. Unless Rosen shows he’s the quarterback of the Dolphins’ future, the Fins can tank their final games that are remaining to get.

The Browns stunned the football world by yanking off a blockbuster trade to acquire Odell Beckham Jr. in the New York Giants, and the star wide receiver finds himself in a position to absolutely dominate in Northeast Ohio. Paired with quarterback Baker Mayfield, Beckham is thought to have one of the best seasons of his career.
The transition from the over-the-hill Eli Manning into the Mayfield could turn into one of their greatest one-two punches from the NFL. Just Julio Jones (+500), DeAndre Hopkins (+800) and Michael Thomas (+1100) are before Beckham Jr. about the oddsboard, and while that is certainly lofty business, don’t be surprised if the ex-Giant moves them if all is said and done.
It’s easy to forget about the Steelers with all of the buzz surrounding the Browns now. After all, we’re utilized to seeing Pittsburgh among the most secure franchises in the NFL, however the Steelers are anything but over the last few years.
The drama surrounding Le’Veon Bell and Antonio Brown is finally gone. Steelers fans and the organization are prepared to turn the page on what has really been a tumultuous time in the Steel City, and I believe oddsmakers have been undervaluing them in AFC North odds. James Conner and JuJu Smith-Schuster are gifted enough to help fill the emptiness from the left handed superstars, therefore the Steelers could easily bounce back and be the very best team from the North — especially behind an improved defensive unit. Cleveland will be better and Baltimore figures to be in the mix, but the Steelers will emerge with all the AFC North banner in 2019.
The Lamar Jackson age in Baltimore has officially came. The NFL has not seen a quarterback who can do damage on the ground fairly like Jackson because Michael Vick, and Jackson is still just 22. The Louisville product took more than Joe Flacco halfway through the season and injected new life into a Ravens offense that was becoming predictable and dull. This is Jackson’s team now.
Baltimore snuck in the movie in Week 17 last year and dropped against the Chargers in the divisional round, and that I expect the Ravens to put forth a much better performance in the postseason this year.?? The defense lost some key players but remains talented enough to keep the Ravens in games. Whether the Ravens are playoff-bound or never will come down to Jackson, and I’m all over them at the +160 number to acquire in.
There weren’t many bright spots to be found at the Bengals’ 2018 year, but the breakout of Mixon was certainly one of them. The 23-year-old conducted for 1,168 yards and eight touchdowns in his second NFL season when averaging 83.4 rushing yards per game. Cincinnati is not predicted to be aggressive this season as evidenced by its own +12500 Super Bowl cost, but don’t expect that to slow Mixon down.
With longtime head coach Marvin Lewis eventually gone along with former Sean McVay understudy Zac Taylor accountable, the Bengals offense is going to have different look to it this season, and that means Mixon’s workload will likely grow consequently. Mixon has proven he can be a bell-cow running back, and thus don’t be surprised if he goes OVER his estimated 1,200 rushing yards complete.

If I had been requested ahead of Week 3 of the preseason, my pick to win the AFC South could happen to be the Indianapolis Colts with the Houston Texans trailing just behind. But after Colts quarterback Andrew Luck’s shocking retirement announcement, the door has opened to the Texans to win their fourth division title in five years.
Houston took a blow in Week 3 of the preseason as well, losing running back Lamar Miller for its period with a knee injury. There are rumors about a transaction for Melvin Gordon or free agent Jay Ajayi to become the lead back in Miller’s absence, but for the time being, it’ll be scatback Duke Johnson Jr., who’s a fine replacement in his own right.
Last year has been nothing short of a tragedy for the prior first-round pick. Fournette turned heads in his rookie campaign in 2017, racing for 1,040 yards and eight touchdowns while looking in just 13 games as he dealt with a ankle injury. In 2018, the LSU alum rushed for only 439 yards with five touchdowns, averaging 3.3 yards per carry, also played just eight of the 16 games. Fournette once again suffered an accident and after that also was frozen for an on-field altercation.
I expect??the Jags to become dynamic in 2019 and Fournette will probably be chomping at the bit to put a year’s struggles . He has slimmed down, seems focused and, barring any injury, should top 1,000 rushing yards again this year.
Tennessee quarterback Marcus Mariota has not had an overly threatening receiver corps??in his career, but Adam Humphries may assist the former Heisman Trophy winner pad??his own stats. Humphries signed a four-year deal with all the Titans coming off the best season of his career with the Buccaneers. He started a career-high 10 games with career bests in receiving??yards (816), touchdowns (five)??and receptions (76).
It seems that Humphries will find the biggest chance of his profession and become a real No. 1??wide receiver. Because of this, collecting over 650 metres over the entire year appears to be very achievable for your fifth-year wideout.
It seemed like the sky was falling to Colts fans in Week 3 of the preseason when starting quarterback Andrew Luck announced his retirement during their match against the Bears. Indianapolis dropped over 10 spots on the Super Bowl oddsboard and??went against the favored to win the division to the bottom. However, there are plenty of weapons on either side of the ball.
The brand new starting quarterback would likely be Jacoby Brissett, who has done a great job restricting interceptions, but he’s had any fumble problems and his completion percentage has been under 60 percent in his profession. I believe if he could keep it simple and get the ball in the hands of players like Eric Ebron and Devin Funchess and running back Marlon Mack, the Colts have a fantastic opportunity to win seven matches.

There’s a great deal of conversation surrounding the Miami Dolphins and Arizona Cardinals function as the worst teams in the NFL this season, but I am not certain why we’re thinking the Raiders are going to be far better. Combine the fact that they perform in a tough division and they perform a whole great deal of loseable (is that even a word?) Matches, and I believe this is price.
We all know about the drama surrounding the Raiders last year and what do they do? They head outside and bring in some of the figures in the NFL at Richie Incognito Antonio Brown along with Vontaze Burfict. The combustability variable is HIGH at the helm with hothead Jon Gruden that is noted.
Then once you examine the on-field challenges that the Raiders will face in a division with the Chargers and Chiefs, and with the Packers, Bears??and improved Texans, Vikings and Jaguars teams within their schedule, the Raiders could be scuffling for a four-win season.
Coming off a 50-touchdown campaign in 2018, it’s tough to feel that a whole 14 touchdowns will likely be pumped off Mahomes’ total this season. In fact, he may end up with much more as we aren’t Certain how successful the KC rushing attack will likely be. ??
Clearly this number is a little juicy, so in the event you can locate 37 or 37.5 at a greater price, I would recommend making that play. Barring an accident, this sounds to be an absolute lock.
38 in December turns but I am still taking him to surpass 4,300 yards this season.
Together with the holdout of Melvin Gordon to begin the year, that implies that Austin Ekeler will probably be receiving the bulk of work out of the backfield. In a backup role this past year, Ekeler had 53 goals and 39 receptions for 404 yards and 3 touchdowns. On the floor, he rushed for 554 yards. With these numbers, expect him to have a lot and chances execute and pass.
The Chargers receiving corps is looking powerful, especially with the emergence of Clemson’s Michael Williams in 2018. Williams had 43 receptions for 664 yards (15.4 YPR) and converted 10 TDs.
Following 1,196 getting meters in 2018, look for Keenan Allen to get back to 2017 numbers (1,393) this season.
Vic Fangio makes the jump to Broncos head coach this year. After working with a few of the most dominant defenses in football last year, it’s essential to be aware that the 3 years previously, his allies were near the bottom of the NFL in defensive figures. Toss because he’s never worked in the AFC West in his profession, nor been a head coach at this level, and there is a whole great deal of doubt for the Broncos.
Besides playing in a division with two 11-win teams in a year ago, the Broncos host the Bears and Browns (two Super Bowl favorites) and visit the Packers, Texans, Vikings along with an improving Bills group.
As soon as it’s possible that they scrounge seven wins from the season, I’ve gotta believe that is as good as it will get for a franchise that’s relying upon Joe Flacco to bring them to glory. I examine this a transition season for this group and will hedge them on moving UNDER 7 with the added benefit of a prospective push.

It’s easy to wish to write off the Cowboys. The NFC is so competitive as it’s ever been and the Philadelphia Eagles are appearing more formidable by the day. But this really is America’s Team and they’ve got the bits across the roster to compete with any team in the league.
Contract problems apart, the Cowboys have the very ideal WR/RB combo in the NFC East and also an up-and-coming defense which led them to the branch crown in 2018. I think they win the branch or get a place so that this feels like free money.
If Carson Wentz stays healthy, this one is a lock. It’s a big if. Wentz has missed eight matches over the last two seasons and his own playing style can occasionally result in big hits if he’s scrambling from the pocket. Injury concerns aside, Wentz has got the weapons to have a 2019.
He has Alshon Jeffery, Nelson Agholor and DeSean Jackson for wide receivers and Zach Ertz at end. Wentz had been on pace and had 33 touchdown passes to win NFL MVP. That top prize might not be in the cards for the fourth-year quarterback but tossing 31 touchdowns feels just like a layup.
Jay Gruden is your favorite to be the first coach fired and honestly, I agree with the oddsmakers. The Redskins are a mess offensively and also have a fairly tough schedule to open up the day with four of their first five matches against playoff teams from 2018. Where I believe Gruden may get the boot is following Week 4 if they confront the Giants at MetLife Stadium.
If Washington begins the year 0-4, I could visit owner Dan Snyder giving him the boot and starting fresh with a fresh GM/coach tandem to lead the Deadskins to the future. Oh, how did I not mention that Washington doesn’t have an overall manager right now? Yeah, that is because Snyder transferred Bruce Allen to the president’s function. What a mess at DC. If you’re searching for something a bit juicier, I would also indicate DE Montez Sweat in +1600 to win Defensive Rookie of the Year.
Of course, with almost any running back, injury concerns can frighten you from taking an OVER onto a betting prop but Saquon Barkley is not your typical runner. Barkley IS that the Giants??offense this season and despite an eight-man box, now he’s nearly impossible to contain for a full 60 minutes. Barkley finished with 11 rushing touchdowns in 2018 on 260 communicates and I fu
