RSO Staff Picks: Week 2

Updated: April 21st 2015

Week 1 Results

Co-Founder & COO Stephen Wendell is off to a great start after not only getting the most games correct, but taking 2 out of the 3 fantasy pick categories. The other Founder, Matt Papson, went out on a limb in week 1 and, well, the limb broke. Matt Goodwin and Zach Wendkos both picked the same number of games correctly, but Wendkos has the edge thanks to his on-point bust picks (Rodgers, Newton, Fitzgerald). Here are the full standings after a wild and crazy week 1 of NFL football:

1. Wendell – 11-5 + 2 fantasy wins (+1 Sleepers, +1 Stars)
2. Wendkos – 9-7 + 1 fantasy wins (+1 Busts)
3. Goodwin – 9-7 + 0 fantasy wins
4. Papson – 7-9 + 0 fantasy wins
