Total Main Slate Games: 12
You wanted something different?
After a couple months with 10 or 11 games on the Main Slate, we have only two teams on bye this week, giving us 12 games to choose from; and after weeks of Over/Unders in the 47-48 range standing out as “the top on-paper spots on the slate,” this week gives us not one, not two, but three games with Over/Unders north of 50, and two additional games in the 47-point range.
Josh Allen plays on Thursday night and will be missing from the Main Slate, but the only other noteworthy offenses missing are a split-backfield/run-leaning Cowboys team and an underwhelming, horizontal-raid Cardinals team, while most of the marquee names in fantasy are present on this slate (with a number of them in matchups against one another).
Of course, this being 2022, we also have four games with Over/Unders of 42.0 or below (and this being 2022, we’ll probably see at least a couple pieces of chalk emerge from these games; go figure), and we have three games in the 43.5 to 44.5 point range.
Those three games are particularly interesting:
