The N.F.L. in England, and the Lancaster in Mongolia

The Lancaster will be traveling to Mongolia this summer, a country with of the highest elevations in the world, situated on a plateau with extreme temperatures. More details and specific web links to follow. Just imagine the possibilities of the N.F.L. in Mongolia…

After doing nearly everything wrong last week (I traded away Brandon Jacobs, just to name one), this week it’s time for a bounce back. I’m looking at five games total, but condensing, to keep the risk minimal:

Rams Money Line (+150): I like the Rams to get one this week, something to which I referenced two weeks ago. Now that their season is officially over, they will be loose, and playing at home, look for T. Holt to break free, maybe twice, chronic knee and all. Barring any setbacks, S. Jax might not be a #1 this week, but his presence should help them secure some quality scoring opportunities.

Vikings +1: With an improbable one next week at San Diego, this is their sandwich home game between Dallas and the Chargers. An ever so slight home dog, I like them to win with their defense and running game against a Philly front seven that, despite being ranked in the top ten against the run, is highly overrated. I mean, Thomas Jones had a 100 yard rushing game against them, and he couldn’t even do that against the Bengals.

Three Team Teaser: Over 48 in Giants/Dolphins; Under 44 in Lions/Bears, and Colts Money Line (-300). The N.F.L. in London should be high-octane for the fans; the last time the Bears and Lions met, it was an explosive one, so why is the line only 44? And the Colts play the Pats in the regular season game of the decade; they’re both going to be undefeated going in.

Notes: Watch out for DeAngelo Williams again this week, with Foster nursing one of his bullshit trademark injuries; Darwin Walker might play for Chicago, perhaps igniting their rush defense, although Tommie Harris is the real key; Cincinnati’s linebackers are hurting, again, so watch for Willie Parker to do it up; once again Chris Henry might get some chunks of yards against the Raiders poor run stoppage; Joe Jurevicius may be back, so perhaps Braylon Edwards’ production drops a bit this week; the Lions secondary is chipped up, and they just suck in general, so look for the Bears to exploit some match-ups downfield; my sleeper this week is going to be, yes, a sleeper, Torry Holt.

Last Week: 0-2-0
Season: 14-16-1
Last Week’s Fantasy Sleeper: Chris Henry: 69 total yards and a TD.
