The third and final game on Thanksgiving is in Seattle as the 49ers travel north to take on the Seahawks. The Seahawks are one game back from the 49ers for the NFC West division, so they should be highly motivated this Thursday. They have some injuries to overcome, but they will have the “12th man” behind them.
Baker Mayfield struggled a little bit last week against the 49ers, but he was not awful. He plays the Colts this week, which should be an easier matchup.
The Bengals are traveling to Baltimore to take on the Ravens, who have scored 30+ points in four consecutive games. Both teams had their four-game winning streak snapped last week and will look to bounce back on a short week. One has more significant injuries than the other, which may change the outcome of this game.
I mentioned Dobbs last week and finished as the QB3 this week. He has scored 25 fantasy points in three consecutive weeks and could get Justin Jefferson back soon. He plays the Broncos this week on Sunday night, which is a decent matchup.
These teams are connected for better or worse currently. The Bears own the Panthers’ first-round selection in the upcoming draft, which projects as the second overall pick.
Demario Douglas is a priority add based on volume alone.
The Titans are bringing some newfound life into Pittsburgh on Thursday in the form of rookie quarterback Will Levis.
Levis was spectacular in his debut against the Falcons. He went 19 for 29 for 238 yards and four touchdowns. Levis benefited from a strong ground game, with Derrick Henry adding 101 yards on 22 attempts, but Levis made multiple big throws.
Miami is now leading the division, but the Bills have a win over them, and they will meet in the final game of the season, which could be the decisive game for the division. They must first handle the Buccaneers on a short week, however.
