Today I’ll be highlighting one of my favorite contests on Monkey Knife Fight, the Touchdown Dance. This Sunday MKF is running a special contest where if you play in a $5+ Touchdown Dance contest and all 3 of your players score a touchdown you get a share of the jackpot. Today’s jackpot is $5,000!
Let’s dig in and see if we can find some touchdowns!
Ronald Jones vs. New York Jets
Ronald Jones stands as good of a chance of scoring a touchdown today as anyone on the early slate. No team in the NFL has given up more rushing touchdowns this season than the Jets as they’ve given up 22. The next closest team is Houston with 18. Even if we dive into a smaller subset, the Jets have given up 5 over their 4 last games. Running backs have their way with the Jets and Ronald Jones will also have his way with the Jets.
Jones filled in admirably last week for Fournette with 65 rushes and 1 touchdown against a slightly tougher opponent in the Panthers. With Fournette on IR, Jones will get the bulk of the carries again today and should find the end zone in back-to-back weeks, helping us get our first touchdown in the Monkey Knife Fight Touchdown Dance contest. Confidence Level – High
Jonathan Taylor vs. Las Vegas Raiders
Jonathan Taylor had somewhat of a disappointing week in week 16. Although he rushed for over 100 yards for the third straight week, he failed to find the end zone for the first time since week 3. In week 17 he gets a great shot of bouncing back against a Raiders team that has been below average against running backs all year.
On the year they’ve given up 14 rushing touchdowns to running backs and 5 over the last 4 weeks. They’ve gotten progressively worse over the course of the year. Only once over the past 6 weeks have they gone a game without giving up a rushing touchdown to a running back. Jonathan Taylor should have no issue finding the end zone in this one. Confidence Level – High
Cordarrelle Patterson vs. Buffalo Bills
A once stout defense against the run, the Bills have really been struggling to try to contain running backs. They started out the year not giving up a single rushing touchdown to a running back until week 6 against the Titans. Since then it’s been all downhill. Over the last 6 weeks, they’ve given up a total of 9. In that stretch, they have games where they gave up 4 and 3 touchdowns. I’m going to attack them today with a running back that I’ve gone to in the past, Cordarrelle Patterson.
The ninth year back has really had a breakout season. He’s set career highs in both rushing touchdowns and rushing yards. He’s had rushing touchdowns in 3 of his last 5 games. Patterson is a risk because he doesn’t get a whole lot of volume, but where he does get volume is in the red zone and that’s extremely important here. Over the last 3 weeks, he’s had 13 red zone rushes. If the Falcons get in the red zone today, they’ll hand it off to Patterson. Confidence Level – Medium
Cooper Kupp vs. Buffalo Bills
I normally keep it to running backs in the Monkey Knife Fight Touchdown Dance because their volume is easier to predict at times. That said, Cooper Kupp is in an absolute smash spot today. The Ravens’ secondary has been decimated by injuries all season and the results have shown it. Over the last 4 weeks, the Ravens have given up a league-high 8 touchdowns to wide receivers. That’s tops in the NFL over that stretch. During that stretch of 4 games, they’ve given up multiple touchdowns to receivers 3 times.
Kupp just stands out so much here. Even last week in what was considered a subpar week for Stafford and Kupp, he still had over 100 receiving yards. Last week was the first time since week 12 he failed to find the endzone. I just don’t see a scenario where he goes a second straight week without a touchdown. Confidence Level – High
