We need more action today. Obviously, the card is big but there is always room for more bangers. Always. Everyone knows that. We've been watching the NFL for decades now and more bangers have never hurt anyone. Luckily for us, I went through the board looking for baby shootouts. Undercover spots for "bad" teams to get loose. What do you know, we've got two such teams fighting it out in a dome in Atlanta. Say no more. The only thing that would make this thing better is if it was going off during the 4:00 pm ET slate so we'd have more time to look forward to it.

Falcons vs. Browns Prediction

We're at FanDuel because without them there is no chance of getting to the moon. The ladders are what make the whole thing possible. I get that +134 is a little tame for you animals but here's the thing. That's just the first rung. You can climb this ladder as high as you want. Are you thinking 80+ (+200)? Do that. How about 90+ (+290), 100+ (+410), 110+ (+580) or even 125+ (+880)? It's all deadly and it's all in play for our guy Coop.

Amari Cooper has been so overrated in his career that now he has become underrated. I'm not sure how that's possible but that's what has happened. The guy was supposed to be the second coming of Jerry Rice (not really) and he ended up just being very good. Since he did that, people treat him like he's some bum. I don't get it. We're talking about Amari Cooper here. There's still gas in his tank (probably).

The idea of Cooper with Deshaun Watson seemed pretty legit but we all know what happened there. The thing is, he took a huge hit in the fantasy world when it was known that he would be shagging balls from Jacoby Brissett but so far it hasn't been that bad. He's gone 100+ in receiving yards in each of his last two games. That's far from bum status. Real far actually. The haters are going to talk about his first game of the season where he only put up 17 yards but that was weeks ago. We're looking at a new Amari Cooper now.

Today he gets a boost from playing one of the worst pass defenses in the NFL. So far this season, only six teams have given up more receiving yards to the wide receiver position than the Atlanta Falcons. Two of those teams have played an extra game. I think we're going to see a battle today where the Falcons will actually score a few points to keep this thing interesting. If that happens, the Browns won't be able to just stuff the ball in Nick Chubb's chest and call it a day. Cooper could actually go off in the right situation. Feels right.
