RSO Staff Picks: Week 11

Updated: November 16th 2017

Week 10 Results

1. Wendell – 12-2

T2. Papson – 10-4

T2. English 10-4

Overall Standings

1. Wendell – 98-48

T2. English – 94-52

T2. Papson – 94-52

Wendell takes the week with a stellar 12-2 mark as his Green Bay over the Bears pick turns out to be the difference maker. He now has a solid 4 game lead at 98-48 over Kyle and Matt who both site at an extremely respectable 94-52. Some major, major playoff implicating games are on tap for this week, including what should be a great one tonight in Pittsburgh as the Titans visit the Steelers on TNF. The other primetime games this week are all pretty strong as well with the late CBS game (Patriots visiting Oakland), the SNF game (Philly going to Jerry World), and the MNF game (Atlanta traveling to face the 13th man in Seattle) all expected to be great matchups. We have some big time differences this week so look for a big shakeup in the standings come next week. Here are our picks for the week:

RSO Staff Picks: Week 10

Updated: November 9th 2017

Week 9 Results

1. Papson – 10-3

2. Wendell – 8-5

3. English 7-6

Overall Standings

1. Wendell – 86-46

T2. English – 84-48

T2. Papson – 84-48

Big time movement in the standings as Papson has another incredible week going 10-3. English falters a bit at 7-6 and we now have a two-way tie for 2nd with English and Papson at 84-48, only two games behind Wendell at 86-46. With about 1/2 of the NFL games played, we are essentially dead even, so it should be a fun finish to the season. Lots of similarities in picks this week with the big games being GB-CHI (Wendell alone), MIN-WAS (Papson alone), and SF-NYG (English alone). The playoff race is still wide open for most of the league and the fun is just getting started. Here are our full slate of picks for the week:

RSO Staff Picks: Week 9

Updated: November 2nd 2017

Week 8 Results

1. Papson – 13-0

2T. English 12-1

2T. Wendell 12-1

Overall Standings

1. Wendell – 78-41

2. English – 77-42

3. Papson – 74-45

Well, when there is a big consensus between the three of us, I guess that means we can be pretty confident in the outcome of the games. Papson sweeps the slate going a perfect 13-0 last week and Wendell/English go 12-1. Fantastic week from everyone, and there is now just four games separating Papson in 3rd place from Wendell in 1st place. Going to be an exciting second half of the season. For Week 9, there is certainly not as much agreement amongst us with Papson on an island on four picks: Jets, Panthers, 49ers, and the Cowboys. Kyle is on an island with the Ravens, the Redskins and the Packers. Could be a big shakeup in the standings this week. Here are all our picks for Week 9:

RSO Staff Picks: Week 8

Updated: October 26th 2017

Week 7 Results

1. Wendell – 12-3

2T. English 10-5

2T. Papson 10-5

Overall Standings

1. Wendell – 66-40

2. English – 65-41

3. Papson – 61-45

After 7 weeks at the top of the standings, Wendell has caught up with English. Led by his Raiders and Chargers correct predictions, Wendell goes 12-3 and wins the week and takes over first place on the year with a slim one game lead over English. And at 61-45, Papson is only five games out of first place. There will not be much ground made up this week however as the three of us only differ on two games with Kyle liking gunslinger Matt Moore tonight on the road in Baltimore and Wendell liking Derek  Carr and the Raiders on the road in Buffalo. It is a rare week that there is this much agreement amongst us, so we are either going to be really right or really wrong. Here are our picks for Week 8:

Wow, crazy week last week. Papson lost a bunch of close games and suffered a 4-10 week with English going 6-8, and Wendell winning the week at 8-6 (he won both his “island” picks with the Cardinals and Steelers pulling through for him).  Another great slate of games this week in what seems like a more wide open NFL than ever where each week anybody can beat anybody. Who will the big upsets be this week? Our staff picks are below:

1T. Wendell – 7-7

3. Papson 6-8

Overall Standings

1. English – 49-28

2. Papson – 47-30

3. Wendell 46-31

Well, we all cooled off a bit last week with nobody going over .500 with his picks. While we were all correct picking the Birds, Jets and Colts, we whiffed picking the Lions, Giants, Steelers, Raiders and Cowboys! Week 6 has some great matchups on tap starting with two 4-1 teams battling it out on TNF as the Panthers play host to the Eagles. This will be a pivotal game for both franchises and will likely have big playoff implications come January. Big divisional matchups are on the slate as well with the Packers visiting the Vikings (can Rodgers bring the Pack back to play in this stadium for the SB in February), the 3-2 Patriots visiting the 3-2 Jets (that’s right) with the division lead on the line, and Indy visiting Nashville on MNF to take on the Titans in what looks to be a must-win if the Titans are going to win that division as many thought they could. All of our picks for Week 6 are below:
