I’ve been a little under the weather these last couple of days and my productivity had lapsed, but no fear I will be back tomorrow with the standard NFL:64 fro the week.
To catch you up on last week. I was 8-8 for the week, making me, 113-79 for the year. Some quick thoughts….
- The Patriots lost because you can’t play shitty special teams and expect to win.
- What would have happened it Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary had hit the ceiling or a rafter or a speaker? I honestly don’t know.
- Carolina is really good even if they gave up a bunch of points to the Saints.
- The Vikings puked all over themselves.
- The Bears puked all over themselves too.
- No one wants to win the NFC East, there playoff privileges should be revoked.
I’m working on the NFL:64 now so hopefully that is up later and if I’m super productive a playoff pictures as well!
It is long overdue for the NFL to make officials full time employees. I realize they at most work 24 games a year, but how is this not as great an integrity issue as potentially deflated footballs? Would it be crazy for me to suggest that because the Broncos went for the field goal instead of the TD and cut the lead to 4 when the spread was 3, that any official who may have bet the Bronco’s plus 3 had a vested interest in seeing the Bronco’s score again?

Week 12 is here and Thanksgiving week is always weird week. Teams will start actually clinching playoff spots soon, both in the real NFL and in your fantasy leagues! The best game of the weekend will probably be the Seahawks hosting the Steelers. Neither team is great, but I think both are very good and are very evenly matched. Continue reading
The Case Keenum concussion situation is a disaster for the NFL. The backup QB saw there was a problem. The spotter saw there was a problem. The trainer talked to the QB and decided there wasn’t a problem? Talk about opening themselves up to liability. Continue reading
We’ve spent a lot of time on the playoffs this week and we will continue to because that’s why they play the game. Lots of fun games to watch this weekend with an eye on the post season. Can the Vikings take control of the NFC North hosting the Packers? Can the Falcons rebound off their bye week against an Andrew Luck-less Colts? Have the last couple of weeks of the Chiefs been legit? Continue reading
132 regular season NFL games in the books, 125 left to go. It official we passed the halfway point. I hope your favorite team is still in the playoff hunt, if not, I hope your fantasy team is still relevant. If that’s not the case either, adopt a team! I recommend adopting a team from the other conference. If you are a Ravens fan for instance and they have been super unlucky and would have to have a series of miracles occur for them to sneak into the playoffs, adopt an NFC team. Maybe the Rams and the best rookie running back in the long time, Todd Gurley. Continue reading
For the first time this year I failed to land in the money in back to back weeks on DraftKings. That’s not great, but it was likely to happen eventually. It was what I’m going to call a very top heavy week at DraftKings, meaning that the top scorers scored an ass load of points and then there were a bunch of guys who had ok weeks. So let’s review my top/bottom 3s and my teams! Continue reading
We continue the search for opportunity and value on DraftKings. As I continue to try and find ways to judge that value I’ve started to think of ways to evaluate ownership %, cost, and points scored. We won’t see the results of those ideas this week, as I’m still in the alpha phase of development, but hopefully soon I can start showing some of the results. Continue reading
