Big Ass Update

This is the biggest update of the year.  Where you can start to see if you're in contention or not.  Let's go through the points.


Congrats to Munez on winning the College Pick'em.  His 141 narrowly beat Jim at 140 and Joe at 139. 

The College bonus goes as follows

Munez 60 pts
Jim 40 pts
Joe 20 pts
Eplin 10 pts.

Joe, Rob, and Shawn each earned the last 10 point bonus of the year with 16 correct predictions.  

These are everyone's final scores in the college pick'em

Munez 141
Jim 140
Joe  139
Eplin 136
Folden 135
Gary  134
Rob 133 
Shawn 133
Colin 131
Adam 130 
John 126
Hale 119

Fantasy Football

The playoffs are set.  Previously Eplin, Rob, Hale, and Folden were in, and here's how the final spots shook out.  

Jim lost his game, Gary lost his game, and I lost my game.  all 3 of us were at 6-6.  Colin won at 5-7 to jump to 6-7.  Joe won to go at 6-7 as well.  

That leaves 5 of us tied at 6-7 with 2 playoff spots available.  Through the point tie breaker that puts me and Colin in.  

Here are your playoff seeds

1 Eplin
BYE

4 Folden
5 Adam

3 Hale
6 Colin

BYE
2 Rob

Munez received the final 5 point bonus.

Shawn 75+117+133+100+15
John 75+111+126+140+35
Munez 60+119+141+120+95

Overall Totals

1. Eplin 575
2. Jim 563
3. Joe 560
4. Munez 535
5. Gary 531
5. Rob 531
7. Hale 504
8. Folden 502
9. John 487
10. Colin 474
11. Shawn 440
12. Adam 439

It's incredibly tight between our top 5 teams.  This means the college awards, pro pick'em bonus, and fantasy bonus are going to mean a lot.  4 of the 6 tams in the fantasy playoffs are in the bottom half of the standings, which is bizarre for us.  

This also puts a lot of importance on our Pro Predictions.  Those should start coming in as early as next week.  Pittsburgh, New england, and Philadelphia, and Minnesota can all clinch, I believe. I'll be putting together the bowl pick'em as soon as Yahoo makes it available.  And after that I probably won't be back for another update for 2 weeks, but I'll probably update on the 19th.

11/28/17 Update

I figured I'd come in with a back to back update since next week shit's about to get nasty.

FANTASY FOOTBALL

This is our last week of fantasy and here's where we stand. 

According to Yahoo Eplin and Rob are the only two people who have clinched playoff spots, but that's bullshit. 

Eplin has clinched the 1, Rob the 2, and Hale and Folden are in for sure. 

I'm currently the 5 seed at 6-6, with Jim the #6 seed at 6-6 and Gary #7 at 6-6. 

Behind that Colin, John, and Joe all sit at 5-7. 

So, what can still realistically happen? 

Let's start with Joe & John.  Only 5 points seperate them for the season, so they're both in pretty much the same boat.  John plays Hale so he can't really help his cause.  Joe would need to beat me.  Eplin to beat Jim.  Here's the problem for both of them though.  Gary plays Colin. 

If Joe beats me that would put him at 6-6, same as me.  But I have the point tiebreaker.  So, that only leaves the 6 seed.  Since Colin plays Gary, they pretty much elminates John and Joe.  If Gary wins he's 7-6, which Joe and John can't match; and if Colin wins, he's 6-7 and ha a 100 point lead over Joe and John in the tiebreakers. 

So, they're both essentially elminated. 

Colin's road to the playoffs is easier.  He needs to beat Gary and hope that one of two things happen.  #1 Jim loses or #2 I lose and he's able to make up the 52 point difference between us he would need in a tiebreaker.  Tough, but not impossible. 

Gary essentially needs to win and hope Jim or I lose, or He wins and is able to jump the 20 point difference between him and Jim.

My road is easiest, win and in.

COLLEGE PICK'EM

The pick'em is tight as dick skin.  Munez is at 140 with Jim at 139.  With only 7 games on the docket this weekend, this is pretty much your championship round.

Joe is in 3rd with 136, so he could slide into 2nd if one of the two does bad enough.  Eplin, Gary, and Folden are all tied in 4th at 132, which 4th is good for 10 points, but if you have to split it 4 ways, it's relatively meaningless.

PRO PICK'EM

Folden holds a 2 point lead over Jim and Joe, while Rob sits 3 back. 

BONUS

Rob earned the pick'em bonus this year, for his first bonus points of the season, while Colin earned the 5 point fantasy bonus. 


This coming week is the last 10 point bonus of the season for the pick'em.  It reverts to a 5 point bonus for the rest of the season.  Next week is also the last 5 point fantasy football bonus of the year. 

PREDICTIONS

I'm going to start with the NFL, because they are more speculative at the moment, but things are getting clearer. 

DIVISION WINNERS

CERTAIN
   - Philly (picked by  adam, shawn, folden, munez)

They need to win one more game, or Dallas or Washington lose a game.  out of the next 5.  This shit is done. 

NEAR CERTAIN

Pittsburgh & New England (picked by everyone)
Minnesota (picked by noone)

Each of these three teams has a 3 game lead with 5 to play. 


SLIM LEADS
Kansas City (picked by Hale)
    They once looked like a lock, and now only have a 1 game lead over the Chargers and Raiders, both of which were picked by everyone else. 

Los Angeles Rams (picked by noone) have a one game lead over Seattle (picked by everyone)

TOSS UP
Tennessee (picked by me, shawn, colin, rob, eplin, and hale) are tied at 7-4 with Jacksonville who noone picked.  Houston was picked by many people and are not going to win. 

New Orleans and Carolina are both 8-3 with Atlanta one game back at 7-4.  This shit's nuts.  No idea at the moment. 


COLLEGE PREDICTIONS

The individual award finalists have announced.  Feel free to look up and see if you had anyone in the finals.  I think everyone had one person at least.  Some people had as many as 3.

CONFERENCE TITLE GAMES

ACC - John is the only person to take either Clemson or Miami, and he'll benefit if the Hurricanes win. 

AAU  - Memphis vs UCF
Noone had either of them, so it's a loss.

BIG 10 - Ohio St vs Wisconsin
Most people had Ohio state, however Me, Hale, and Shawn had Wisconsin.  Rob & Jim's picks have already been elminated.

Big 12 Oklahoma vs TCU
There are 5 people with Oklahoma winning the Big 12, with trendy pick Ok St fizzling out.  Hale has the most to benefit here, having them both winning the Big 12 and in the Playoff.

Conference USA FAU vs North Texas. 
Noone of us had either.

MAC Akron vs Toledo
All of us had Toledo except Munez.

MWC
Fresno st vs Boise st
Boise was picked by shawn, joe, munez, rob, john, and eplin.

Pac 12
USC VS STANFORD
We all had USC so it's irrelvant

SEC
Auburn vs Georgia
None of us win.  we all lose. 

The sunbelt will be figured out this weekend too.  They are starting a conference championship next year, but in the meantime.  this is it. 

POINT TOTALS

Keep in mind.  After this week shit's going to change a lot.  The college pick'em bonus will be in and all of our conference championships, as well as the final four. 

Fantasy (15 pts) + pro pick'em + college pick'em + bonus points

Eplin 135+110+132+20
Rob 120+112+128+10
Folden 105+115+132+35
Hale 105+109+116+25

John 75+102+124+35
Shawn 60+105+129+5

Survivor's survive Update

Glory be, glory be.  Survivor Pool is over.  Jim, Joe, and Gary all took the X this week with Kansas City, but Gary's zero strike advantage has made him the victor.

That's 60 points for Gary.

2nd place is 40, and 3rd is 20, meaning that Joe and Jim will split the total, giving them 30 points a piece.

The college pick'em is moving towards a logical conclusion.  With two weeks to go Munez has a solid lead of four games.  Jim has moved into 2nd with 128 and Joe is at 126.  Gary and Folden are tied in 4th.

1st - 4th get bonus points this year, so keep that in mind.

The pro pick'em is still pretty tight. 10 pts is the difference from 1st to last, with 96 games remaining.

Folden is leading the way with 103, Joe at 102, and Jim at 100.  So, basically if you get the point, Joe and Jim are in the running for every single bonus point for top finishes this year.

The pick'em bonus for Week 11 went to Colin, who got his first bonus of the year.  Week 12 was a 3 way tie between myself, Gary, and Folden.

I copy and pasted the totals for the bonus points below, if you want to know how I've gotten your bonus point total.

Fantasy Football

Congrats to Eplin on locking down the first playoff spot of the year.  1 more win should lock up a first round bye for him.

2nd and 3 are tied at 7-4.  This is Rob & Hale who for all intent and purposes have locked up playoff spots as well.  They will be battling Eplin for the 1st round bye.

in 4th and 5th we have Folden and Gary at 6-5.  Folden's point totals for the year have him in a better spot then Gary, as  Folden would win the tie break over just about anyone else below him, but possibly me.  Folden likely needs 1 more win to lock up a spot.

Gary's point total is literally the lowest in the league, and it's an abomination that he has a winning record.  He'll likely need to win out, because he's not beating anyone as of now in a tie breaker.

Below Gary we have 5 teams tied at 5-6.  Myself, Colin, Jim, John, and Joe.  I hhold the tiebreaker at the monent, with Colin not far behind.  It's feasible that he or I could go 1-1 and make the playoffs, but more likely 2-0 would be needed by all of us.

Remaining schedule.

Folden - Colin, Rob

Gary - Eplin, Colin

Adam - Hale, Joe

Colin- Folden, Gary

Jim - Joe, Eplin

John - Voyten, Hale

Joe -  Jim, Adam

So, as you can see everyone is playing one another.  Except John.  John sort of has to just win and see how it shuffles out. 

Point totals.

Fantasy (15 pt) + pro pick'em + college pick'em + bonus points

Eplin 120+98+120+20
Rob 105+99+116+0

Update 11/7

Things have certainly moved along in the past two weeks.

FANTASY FOOTBALL

With four games to play, we have four of each 6-3, 5-4, 4-5, and 3-6.  Munez has won 2 in a row when he needed to to bring himself back from the dead.  Rob has lost two in a row, turning his 99% playoff chance to drop to around 80%.  This is as close as it's going to be all year.   Right?  It can't stay this tight can it?  Here are your week 10 matchups.

Adam 4-5 vs Jim 5-4
Hale 5-4 vs Gary 5-4
Joe 4-5 vs Folden 6-3
Eplin 6-3 vs Munez 3-6
Colin 4-5 vs Shawn 3-6
Rob 6-3 vs John 3-6

If Joe, John, and Munez are able to win this week, we'll have a two game difference between 1st and 12 place. 

The 5 point bonus in week 8 went to folden, and hale in week 9.

SURVIVOR POOL

Sometimes abstaining is a solid strategy; however, it is not smart in a survivor pool.  John decided to kick back and relax, not making a pick and getting eliminated.  He was able to split the 10 points that go to 4th place though, as Folden's Seattle Pick got Kirk Cousined. 

In week 8 those two each earned the 5 point bonus for making it this far, with Jim, Gary, and Joe joining them.

Your survivor pool points now look like this.

John & Folden 10
Joe, gary, jim 5.

20 points will go to 3rd, 40 to 2nd, and 60 to first.  Or they will be split, in any manner of tie.  Survivor Pool points will be included only in the scoring of bonus points.

COLLEGE PICK'EM  & PRO PICK'EM

With only 4 weeks to play, Munez holds a 1 point lead over Joe, and a 6 point lead over Jim.    Eplin and Shawn sit 8 back.

Jim leads the Pro pick'em with 84.  Joe, Gary, John, and Folden are 3 back.  Rob and Hale 4 back.  The rest of us a few back. 


As far as our bonus's go.  Hale, folden, and munez each earned the 10 point bonus in week 9 in the pick'em.  And Joe, and John earned it in week 10.


OVERALL TOTALS AS OF  11/7

Tuesday, October 24, 2017

2nd Update

Hey, time for another update now that we're 8 weeks into the season.  I'll try to be as thorough as possible.

COLLEGE PREDICTIONS

8 weeks in and another one bites the dust.  USC got a big time spanking from Notre Dame this weekend, which will end their CFP hopes.


Everyone but Gary had them in the CFP, adding to FSU who most people had as well.  Nobody has all of their 4 teams left in the mix, but some are better off then others.  Everyone has Alabama, so that's a wash acros the board.

Me, Shawn, Joe, Munez, Hale, and Gary still have 3 teams left in the running, while Jim was hit the hardest, with Michigan, USC, and Florida State already out.

For those with 3 teams left, most of them are a loss away from being elimated, whether it's Oklahoma, OK State, or Ohio State.  Other than Alabama, my Wisconsin pick and Rob's Penn state pick are the only two undefeated teams left in the mix, other than Alabama.

CONFERENCE CHAMPIONSHIPS

The easiest way to do this is to speak of who is eliminated already as opposed to who is still in it.

ACC - Florida State is done, making John's Miami pick the only one left.

PAC-12 & SEC Everyone had alabama and usc so it's irrelevant

Big 10 - Jim's Michigan pick is likely done.  Everyone else's Penn st, Wisconsin, and Ohio st picks are still in the mix.

Big 12 - Munez's Texas pick seems a year early and is done.

Sunbelt- Everyone took Applachian state who is undefeated, except Munez and Eplinw ho took troy and are 2-1.

American, MAC,  - everyone's picks are still relevant

MWC - SDSU has lost 2 games in conference, and Fresno is 4-0 in conference play, including a win over San Diego st.  So it's looking more like Colin, Hale, and Gary's pick is done for.

Conference USA- Lousiana Tech was picked by 5 people, and they sit at 1-2 in conference right now.  They are a game behind 2 teams, and tied with many.  One more loss has them done...Also John's horrendous Old Dominion pick is done for.

As far as our Top 10 pick to fall out of the top 25 goes.  John's pick of Michigan is the only one looking good right now.

Team finishing highest in top 25 is close too.

Relevant picks

#4 TCU - me and folden
#10 Notre Dame - shawn
#15 NC state - Joe

The other picks of Nebraska, Boise St, UCLA, northwestern, minnesota, Texas, and Oregon are all looking like they won't happen.

College Awards.

According to ESPN's Hesiman watch it's pretty much a 3 person race at the moment between Barkley from Penn St, Bryce love from Stanford, and Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma.  Mason Rudolph is in the mix at 4th.

Assuming that's correct, that leaves Me with Barkley, shawn and rob with Mason Rudolph, and Joe, Folden, and Colin with Mayfield still in the mix.


I don't have the slightest fucking clue about the rest of the awards.

SURVIVOR POOL

Since the week 4 update Survivor Pool has been a BLOOD BATH.

After 4 weeks we had 4 strikes total.

Week 5 offered 8 strieks and eliminated Colin and Eplin.

Week 6 was even worse, eliminating Me, Hale, Munez, Rob, and Shawn.

This leaves after week 7 with Gary as the only team without a strike.  Amazing considering he only made it 6 weeks in the two years previous combined.

Still alive with 1 strike are John, Joe, Jim and Folden.

The top 4 finishers all earn points, so we're on the cutoff now.

PRO PICK'EM

Pro Pick'em is tied between Rob, Jim, and John at 64 each.  Last place is Colin with 55.  Still tons of time for people to make up ground.

COLLEGE PICK'EM   

College Pick'em is still pretty tight (except for Hale), with 6 weeks to go.

Joe has jumped into the lead and has 94 correct.  Munez sits one back, Jim is 3 back.

After that the rest of us (except for Hale) sit between 6 and 12 back.

That still leaves everyone (except for Hale) in the mix.  However, for those more than 10 back there needs to be some moves made in the next couple of weeks.

Hale is 27 back.

Bonus Points

Pick'em

 Week 1 adam, john, eplin (5 point)
 Week 2 John
 Week 3 Jim
 Week 4 Munez & Gary
 Week 5 Joe
 Week 6 Jim
 Week 7 Jim
 Week 8 Eplin

5 point fantasy bonus

Week 1 munez
Week 2 Munez
Week 3 Adam
week 4 Hale
Week 5 Adam
Week 6 Hale
Week 7 Eplin

This is how the bonus points have gone so far this year.  The people who survive next week in Survivor Pool will get a 5 point bonus as well.

Pro Predictions

Things are getting more desperate in the Pro Predictions.  The individual awards are already a shit show and Aaron Roodgers breaking his collarbone has knocked him out of MVP consideration, which fucked 5 people.

This also screws a lot of people in the playoff predictions.  Everyone except Eplim had Green bay winning their division, Rob and I have them winning the Superbowl.  Jim Joe, Munez, Colin and Hale have them losing the Superbowl.

Shawn, Folden, John have them losing the NFC Championship.

The Falcons, Bucs, Cowboys, Giants and Raiders have all been taken at least to Conference championship games all sit at .500 or worse.


Joe's pick of the NYG to win their divison and lose in the NFC Championship game has been obliterated.

In short, there are a lot of shitty picks in the NFL this year.

As far aas our bottom 3 picks go this year.  It's looking more and more like the Jaguars aren't going to be down there this year.  And the couple of people who took the Rams (like me) look foolish.  The Jets are about a win or two away from being out of that situation too.

FANTASY FOOTBALL

Looks like Rob is probably going to be in the playoffs.  He's 6-1 and has a pretty big lead on the most points scored in the league.  He's 3 up on 7th place in the playoffs. 

After that Folden and Hale sit at 5-2

Eplin, Jim, and Joe are at 4-3.  Thats the cutoff right at the moment. 

After that we have Colin, Me, Gary, at 3-4.  Shawn and John at 2-5.  Munez at 1-6.  Honestly, munez is going to need to probably win out from here to make the playoffs, being 3 back from all of these people.

PICK'EMS 

So far the pick'ems are pretty tight.

Eplin has a 1 point lead over john and hale, and a 2 point lead over folden and rob.  The furthest person back is 7 back, which is me.

Munez is leading the college pick'em at 64 with Joe 2 back and Gary 3 back. Hale is already 17 back.

The bonus's have gone like this so far.

Week 1 Adam, John, Eplin (5 pts college only):
Week 2 John
Week 3 Jim
Week 4 Munez & Gary
Week 5 Joe

SURVIVOR

4 weeks in and noone is eliminated, which means everyone earned the first bonus of 5 points.  That being said, I'm not going to bother factoring it into the score, because it's a non issue.

That being said, 4 people have a strike already.

Folden and Munez for trusting Cutlerfucker in week 3, when the dolphins lost to the Jets.
Eplin for trusting the Jags against the Jets.
Colin for spotting all of us a strike and not making a week 1 pick.

Which fool is going to go against the Jets this week?

FANTASY

5 weeks in and we have a five way tie at 3-1 between Eplin, Hale, Rob, Folden, and Joe.

Shawn and Gary both at 2-2

Me, Jim, Colin at 1-3

Munez at 0-4.

Week 5 schedule

1-3 Colin vs 3-1 Hale
2-2 Shawn vs 1-3 Jim
0-4 Munez vs 2-2 Gary
1-3 Adam vs 3-1 Rob
3-1 Folden vs 2-2 John

Game of the Week
3-1 Joe vs 3-1 Eplin

Remember 15 pts go for each fantasy win and 5 pts to the highest scoring team that loses this year.

This bonus has gone as such in the first 4 weeks.

1. Munez
2. Munez
3. Adam
4. Hale

PREDICTIONS

A few people have had the dreaded Red highlight of doom already.

In the pros, Jim's pick of Adrian Peterson to win the comeback player of the year, and the rushing title look long lost.

Jim, Voyten, and Munez's pick of Dalvin Cook to win are dashed now that he's torn his ACL

My pick of Hue Jackson & Hale's of Ben Mcadoo to win the coach of the year are a combined 0-8.

John's pick of Deshone Kizer has been brutally bad for OROY, and Folden's pick of Corey Davis can't get on the field.

7 of us took Myles Garrett who finally appears ready to step on the field, so it's an uphill battle there.

Voyten's pick of Eric Berry to lead the league in Interceptions is out with a torn achilles, and his pick of David Carr might miss 6 weeks.

Add in Folden, Joe, Rob, and Eplin's David Johnson choice to win the rushing title, while he's out for the year.

Basically, this is the most fucked our individual awards have been this early in a long time.

Other than that,  there are a couple of people who took the Chargers and the Giants to win their divisions, and there's Joe who took both of them.  So, things are looking a little hairy so far for a lot of us.

College Predictions

This isn't quite as fucked, but a big change already in college.  Florida State is effectively done in the Final Four, and is one loss away from being done in the conference too.

Realistically, the conference schedule has just gotten going, and most conferences back load their good games, so Jack shit will be known about this for a bit still.


Scores

fantasy football wins (15 pts) + pro score + college score + bonus points.

Totals as of 10/3

Joe 152

Rob 142
Folden 138
Hale 137
Gary 137
Shawn 126

Obviously really early still.  But here's an indication of where you stand now.

NFL Preview

Hey, quick up date from the first week of the College Football season before we get into the NFL.

The week one 5 point bonus went to Me, John, and Eplin who each got 13 right in the first week of the college pick'em.

The only other thing to speak about is how everyone that picked Florida St in the final four are preeeeeetttty much fucked after their starting qb tore his patella tendon this past weekend.




As you can see above we have some more variance than we do in the College side of things.

I don't really have time for a long preview today, but I wanted you guys to get a look at this before the season started if you wanted it.
