Since the inception of the every week Thursday game last year- these games have been sloppy and low scoring.

I hate playing my studs for these games. If there's ever a time to possibly think about playing matchups when you have someone going Thursday- you have to consider it imo.

I love playing defenses on Thursday night games. That's about it though.

That was the first game of the season, not a game off a short week.

Yeah, TB Thursday Game last year he only put up 135 and a TD on the ground and 79 and a TD in the air. Pathetic bum.

That same game AP had 123 and a TD. Both are bums. I expect more.

Thursday games usually suck.  Actually considering using the Thursday effect his week to my favor and start the Chiefs DST.   I've had great success with kickers on Thursday but try and avoid starting offensive skill players.

I feel like DeSean Jackson will disappoint after two monster games. Chiefs come in with a decent secondary that I think is more vulnerable versus a big physical receiver rather then the little burner. Andy Reid I am sure will get into his DC's ear and do everything he can from letting D-Jax get behind there secondary. I have feeling the TE's for the Eagles come up big on Thursday.

I remember this game because I had Martin on my team and I was jumping for joy listening to the broadcast while I drove home from school that night.  Fairly certain I stopped at BW3 for Boneless Thursday that night.

I do remember noticing this trend last season.  Obviously not every player slumps.  But overall it did seem like the stats were down on the short weeks.

I usually get screwed either way on Thursday night games. My opponent has Charles this week so he's good for a buck 50 on the ground with 2 TDs. Book it and start him with confidence.

Like people weren't already starting Charles with confidence....

I usually stream defenses and there is always one defense that scores 10+ on these TNF games. Week 1: Broncos and Week 2: Patriots. The trend also goes back to last season.

This week is pretty tricky though as I wouldnt pick any defense going against the Eagles, they look pretty deadly, and Smith has always been efficient and doesnt commit that many turnovers...
