This is shaping up to be a light week on the waiver wire, which isn’t a huge surprise this late in the season. Still, there are players who should generate interest on the wire in most leagues, starting with the last quarterback selected in the first round of the 2018 NFL Draft. Rashaad Penny, RB, Seahawks Chris Carson has total control of the Seattle backfield when he’s healthy, but he has missed multiple games because of hip and groin injuries this season, including Seattle’s Week 10 loss to the Rams.…

New York Giants at San Francisco 49ers (-3) Mon. 11/12, 8:15 p.m. ET Three things you need to know before betting on New York Giants-San Francisco: 1. Both the Giants and 49ers will be well-rested on Monday night, as New York was on a bye last week while San Francisco won 34-3 over Oakland on Thursday, giving the club 10 days off between games. While the extra rest could end up helping the 49ers, more time off has not led to increased success for the Giants in recent seasons. Since…

Cowboys-Titans Pick: How Will Amari Cooper Factor into Dallas’ Gameplan?

Three things to know ahead of the Cowboys-Titans clash on NFL Week 9’s Monday Night Football… 1. With deficient wide receivers, analysts have been calling for the Cowboys to feature fewer spread formations and iso routes, and more multifaceted route combinations to help their passing game. When receivers can’t win on their own, your scheme must aid them. Jason Garrett and offensive coordinator Scott Linehan have become more receptive to schemed passing concepts as this season has progressed. But will that continue now that Amari Cooper is here? It’s easy…

Nick Mullens Makes NFL Debut vs. Raiders, Twitter Reacts to His Performance

Who is Nick Mullens? Twitter is finding out and liking what they see. Nick Mullens made his NFL debut Thursday night against the Raiders after the team decided to go with him because of C.J. Beathard’s injury, and the Internet couldn’t believe his opening performance. Beathard, the 49ers current starter, has been out of practice with a wrist injury all week. The 23-year-old Mullens was called up to the team’s active roster on Sept. 26 after quarterback Jimmy Garoppolo suffered a season-ending ACL injury.

The two women had no idea who they were welcoming into the Packers family. Two women at Sunday’s Packers vs. Rams game in Los Angeles tried to convince a casual spectator to become a member of the Packers family.

The MMQB Staff’s Favorite Week 8 Bets Against the Spread

The MMQB staff likes a couple teams to bounce back after suffering losses in Week 7’s action, including two facing off against lowly NFC teams.  New England Patriots (-14) at Buffalo Bills What a bummer that this game will be on Monday Night Football. Josh Allen is still out with his elbow injury, so Derek Anderson, the 35-year-old QB that Buffalo signed two weeks ago despite never intending for him to start, will start again. The Colts beat the Bills, 37-5, last week. The Bills being 14-point dogs seems generous.…
