Russel vs Buf or Dalton vs Phi
I feel like its a tight decision. But Russel's been doing extremely well as of late and Dalton hasn't broken 300 yards in quite a few weeks. At the same time, I wouldn't be surprised if Dalton had a multi-touchdown game on a Thursday Night...

    I'd go w/Wilson and Seattle at home.

    I agree it's perhaps closer than at initial glance and even though I'm not a fan of Thursday night players (their numbers tend to be lower than usual) I'd roll out Dalton this week and here's why. Two players: Lynch and AJ Green. Lynch had a MONSTER game this past week so I look for Seattle to try and ride that hot hand. They will still throw and Buffalo's secondary isn't great but I expect them to throw to try and set up the run. So I'd say the ceiling for Wilson is about 200-250 with 1 TD. Respectable but middle of the road.

    For Dalton on the other hand, I see his ceiling at closer to 300-350 with 2-3 TD's. Cincy runs to set up the pass. And though the Eagles secondary looked better against TB last week, and Nnamdi being out I think actually helps the Eagles, lets not forget what they looked like in the weeks leading up to last week. I don't think the Eagles have anyone who can cover Green consistently and I think they are in for a letdown coming off a last second win.

    So I definitely go with Dalton in this tilt.
