  1. Nice writeup. I have IND, CLE, KC, LAR also marked down. I specifically saved DAL for week 9, it's a rough week but a ton of people have used DAL in week 3, so week 9 may be the Reckoning. If you get by week 9, you can get start feeling alright. SF is good call, I think.
  2. I'm mystified that people are giving the Raiders this much respect. That Broncos win gets less impressive by the week, and this is their 3rd game on the road in a row, which is the rare kind of schedule anomaly you look for. No one thinks they are better than the Bears, Tyrell Williams is probably not playing, and I am not sure I can tell you who their top two WRs will be this week. Waller getting fed like Miami-era Jarvis Landry for the same reason: No one else to throw to, and checkdown-prone QB. One trend in every game this year has been the Raiders ability to look solid early on, and fade badly in the second half. Outscored in 2nd half of every game. Whether because of coaching, the young roster, or whatever the reason, I expect that trend to be magnified on the road for the 3rd straight game.
  3. I have three picks alive in my big pool of 9000 entries. I really hope the Bears usage stays low, and people jump on Philly. Philly has 4 games left I would use them, and I believe they will be stringing together better performances by then. The only other time I like the Bears is at home week 12 vs NYG, when CLE has MIA at home. Right now, Raiders have no Gabe Jackson, and Tyrell Williams isn't practicing. Raiders are on their 3rd road game, and their London performances have been brutal. Think they scored 10 in last two games there. Raiders game plan is to establish the run, and avoid Carr in 3rd and long. Seems like good formula vs. Bears? 🤢 Chase Daniel might be a short term upgrade, he looked fine to me, and the short passing game kills OAK. Indy was incredibly short-handed last week, Raiders jumped out to huge lead, then almost gave it away to team without it's QB, top WR, and top defender.
  4. Don't think I'm going near the Chargers this week. Have had some more injuries, O-line is meh, and I think Jacoby B is an unknown, I don't wanna bet against unknowns week 1, same reason I'll avoid the Cards for a little bit. Speaking of the Dolphins, check out week 14-17 for them: Jets, Giants, Bengals, Pats. I mean, you can easily see a scenario where you get to week 14 without using any of those teams.
  5. Fall is the best. I'm sure it's as great in places like Michigan, Wisconsin and Oregon as it is in the Northeast. If you grew up in Del Boca Vista, good for you, you never had to shovel. I also feel bad for you like I would for a kid who never had a bike.
  6. Looks like you get to repeat made up talking points. Congrats
  7. This. It was a rallying cry for the Trump fan you would expect. She presents evidence, and it's, 'who cares?' What a joke.
  8. Chase is the best for a reason. Airline miles programs have a habit of screwing their members often, devaluing their points. With Chase, you can slide your points where it matters. The absolute best deal is Southwest companion pass. Are you near a Southwest hub, and do you travel with the Mrs/significant other?
  9. My contest is going the distance, so you have to make tough choices. And if there are a certain number of teams, you have to make 2 picks later in the season. So 'saving' teams is a thing. I think it would take some pick-6 defensive magic for BUF to beat HOU. BUF cannot score on anyone, or sustain drives. Aside from MIN game, they have 36 point in 4 games. They beat TEN, but did nothing on offense. Watson would have to play very badly indeed for BUF to win. HOU does have TEN, CLE, IND, and the Jets in a four week stretch later, and Watson is not playing great at the moment. They have some value later for a not great team. MIN I think is a great pick, but they do have a nice MIA game in week 15. I will probably need to make two picks this week. I am holding, and praying for a AZ miracle. I'm not going near GB, I will wait until the WR are healthy, and not for nothing, CJ Beathard doesn't stink. If someone took SEA over OAK, that would make a ton of sense to me. Here's one for you: Jets over the Colts. Bowles is calling the defense with their DC out with an illness, and Bowles calles a great defense, with loads of exotic blitzes. Colts are on their 2nd road game in a row, are a bad team, and really banged up. I dunno if I have the guts to make this call, but I have one entry where I have used CLE and OAK. if I could use Jets here, that's a strong contender.
  10. Hmm, so it seems you want to apply for them before you are 5/24, but they won't count towards your status.
  11. Whoa, I was under impression the Chase biz cards didn't count toward 5/24. Do I have that totally wrong?
  12. One thing about Carolina and New Orleans is that this is, best I can tell, their best shot the rest of the year. New Orleans playing as well as anyone right now, but there's no real reason to save them. Gonna come down to these two teams for me, I think.
  13. Grubhub and Seamless are same thing. Anyone currently has AMEX, shoot me a referral code. I THINK any AMEX referral will do. Also, my phone really wants to call autocorrect 'referral' to 'rectal.'
