Entering into the middle part of the fantasy regular season, it’s time for desperate owners to take chances. Do so, and it could finally get them back on the right track. To help owners maximize production, here are three BOLD predictions for the upcoming week:
Chad Henne will finish inside the QB top-10 this week
Expected to lose by a landslide, the elevated backup is poised to clean-up in garbage time. Denver’s accommodating secondary (8.8 YPA, 365.4 passing yards per game allowed) combined with the return of Justin Blackmon could net a 300-yard, multi-TD day for the QB.
Gore ‘The Snore’ makes a cameo against Arizona
Frank Gore has been a man on a mission the past two weeks finishing inside the RB top-12. However, a lackluster effort could be on the horizon against Calais Campbell and company. No defense has allowed fewer fantasy points than Arizona. RBs are averaging just 2.8 yards per carry against it. Roughly 80 yards without a score is possible for Gore this week.

Sink your teeth into a Reuben. The Giants WR tallies top-20 numbers
Shockingly, the Chicago Bears have underperformed against the pass. Burned often downfield, they’ve conceded the second-most 20-yard pass plays this season. Reuben Randle, off a 13-target, 6-96-2 effort against Philly, should pick up where he left off. Down David Wilson, Eli Manning could be in line for 50 attempts Thursday night.
