Only two games for Week 14 opened with Vegas totals of 50 or more. Since, those two games (Tampa Bay-Indianapolis, Kansas City-New England) have both sagged back into the 40s. Who is your favorite play in each of these games?
Indianapolis at Tampa Bay - Mike Evans
Prototype WR1s have been bullying the Colts perimeter cornerbacks all season and Evans is bigger, taller, and just as fast as anyone Indianapolis can throw at him in coverage. Look for Evans to join Keenan Allen (10-8-123-1), Julio Jones (9-8-121-1), DeAndre Hopkins (12-9-106-1), D.J. Chark Jr (15-8-104-2), and Hopkins again (8-6-94-2) on the list of dominant outside receivers who have skewered the Colts in 2019.
Kansas City at New England - Sony Michel
Michel's workload varies wildly from week to week due to Bill Belichick's opponent-specific game plans. But assuming Belichick sees the wisdom in keeping Patrick Mahomes II, Tyreek Hill, and Travis Kelce off the field by attacking Kansas City's 30th ranked rush defense (DVOA), Michel should be in for some heavy run. It was only two weeks ago we saw him run the ball 20 times against Dallas before getting game-scripted out of last week's loss to Houston. With the exception of Dalvin Cook in Week 9, the Chiefs have allowed every running back who carried the ball at least 15 times against them to rush for over 100 yards in 2019.
