Week 16 Results & Overall Standings

1. English – Week 16 10-6  // Overall 159-80-1

T2. Papson – Week 16 12-4  //Overall 154-85-1

T2. Wendell – Week 16 13-3 // Overall 154-85-1

A little stumble from Kyle last week closed the gap between him and Matt/me to five games. With exactly give games different this week, I need to hit a five team parlay to close the gap. All signs are point to another English season long pick’em crown. Our picks for the week are below. Congrats to all our RSO champions and enjoy the final week of the regular season. Playoffs are here next week!

RSO Staff Picks: Week 14

Updated: December 22nd 2019

Week 13 Results & Overall Standings

1. English – Week 12 9-7 // Overall 125-66-1

2. Papson – Week 12 8-8 //Overall 123-68-1

3. Wendell – Week 12 10-6 // Overall 119-72-1

Welcome to Week 14 and the fantasy playoffs for those of you who have made it! Congrats on a great regular season. As you navigate the playoffs, paying close attention to matchups in the NFL over the next 2-3 weeks is crucial. Nobody seems to want to take control of the NFC East, as Dallas lost to Chicago to start our week (the Bears are very much still alive in the playoff hunt). Both Papson and English saw it coming with their Bears picks so I start Sunday one game behind for the week and still six games behind Kyle overall, who increased his slim lead on first place from one to two games last week. Some incredible matchups today with SF traveling to NO in what might be a NFC Championship preview, the Ravens going on the road to Buffalo in what will be another test in the Lamar Jackson MVP showcase run, and an AFC Championship rematch with the Chiefs traveling to Foxboro to take on the Patriots. Our picks for those games and the rest of the slate are below. Best of luck in your fantasy playoffs!

1. English – Week 12 11-3 // Overall 116-59-1

Happy Thanksgiving to all of you GMs. We are especially thankful for your support and enthusiasm to our platform. Our CTO Kyle English retook the lead in the year long picks challenge by going on an island picking Seattle and the 49ers, both of whom dominated their opponents. Pappy had a decent week as well and my mediocre 9-5 has me seven games back of Kyle (it does not look good for me this year). Our picks for this week, including today’s Thanksgiving slate are below. Best of luck to all of you on the playoff bubble punching your ticket this week. Enjoy the games and the holiday weekend.

RSO Staff Picks: Week 12

Updated: November 24th 2019

Week 11 Results & Overall Standings

T1. Papson – Week 11 10-4 //Overall 105-56-1

T1. English – Week 11 11-3 // Overall 105-56-1

3. Wendell – Week 11 12-2 // Overall 100-61-1

Big week by all of us, but I make the biggest move going 12-2, just missing the Falcons continued awakening over the Panthers and my Birds long shot against the Pats. With six weeks to go, we are dead even at the top, and I trail Papson/English by five games…not impossible. A fairly mediocre slate of games this week for Week 12, but it ends well with the late game on Fox (Cowboys @ Patriots), the SNF NFC classic (Packers @ 49ers), and a MNF classic that will show us how good Lamar Jackson really is (Ravens @ Rams). With two weeks to go in most fantasy regular seasons, best of luck as you look to make that final playoff push! Our picks for the week are below:

RSO Staff Picks: Week 9

Updated: October 31st 2019

Week 6, 7 & 8 Results & Overall Standings

1.  English – Week 6  7-7 // Week 7 11-3 // Week 8 12-3 // 79-41-1

2. Papson – Week 6  6-8 // Week 7 10-4 // Week 8 13-2 //75-45-1

3. Wendell – Week 6  7-7 / Week 7 9-5 // Week 8 14-1 // 72-48-1

With work travel and our fearless leader’s wedding last week, I have not been able to post our picks each week. I apologize. After a very mediocre Week 6, we have been right on the money the last two weeks. Kyle leads the overall standings by four games over Pappy and seven games over Stephen as we head to the midpoint of the year. The 49ers and Jimmy G look to stay undefeated tonight on the road against an Arizona team that seems to be getting better each week as Kyler Murray gets more comfortable. Other great matchups this week include Vikings on the road against the Chiefs and the Pats on the road against the Ravens, which will likely be their toughest test of the season. Our picks for Week 9 are below. Unlike lots of the teams below, hopefully your fantasy teams are still in the race for the playoffs!
