2023 Weekly NFL Picks, here it is again folks!


2006Coltsbestever

Recommended Posts

Last season (2022) I won the weekly picks by going 161-92-2-1 = no contest. The no contest was between the Bills at Bengals. Chrisaaron finished 2nd. I am looking forward to having our usual posters pick as in @Chrisaaron1023 and @RollerColt, In 2021, I edged out RollerColt by 1 game. So I am working on a 3-Peat. Everyone is welcome to pick, only stipulation is, if someone misses more than 3 weeks, they can't qualify for the Trophy. That wouldn't be fair to the people that pick every week or almost pick every week. If someone does miss 1 or 2 or 3 weeks, then we would go to winning%. Missing upto 3 weeks is understandable because maybe someone is out of town, sick, or had an emergency in a certain week, etc.. If you fail to miss 1 pick in a certain week out of all the games, that is ok because sometimes getting that Thursday pick in can be tough if someone is busy.

 

Anyway, good luck everyone! Season 4 GIF by The Simpsons Participation Trophy GIF

 

For a teaser, I am picking the Colts over Jacksonville 20-17. I smell an upset, I think the defense plays good being at home and they haven't won here since 2017. I also think AR doesn't make any key mistakes. We will soon find out if the opening day jinx does indeed end.

 

Maybe we can get @LJpalmbeacher2and @Jared Cisnerosto participate, just please read the stipulation. Getting picks in only takes a few minutes, once you have had all week to figure them out.

Glad to have you aboard. RollarColt damn near got me in 2021 and last year Chrisaaron gave me a run for it. I had to put that stipulation in there because if someone gets hot for 8 or 9 weeks they can win without having to pick half the season because of %. I think if someone misses 3 weeks that is fair because things do happen.

And I think I probably will get disqualified as the season wears on me, which is better than losing.  :P

You are on here a lot and once you see who is playing the next week, you pretty much have all week to get your picks in. 4 days before the Thursday game. You will be fine. You might beat me. I really didn't pick up to my standards last year. I was much better in 2021.

Last year, I disqualified myself as I missed two weeks and then lost interest... So it's better to have it as a rule.

 

Important thing is, to me, to do it earlier in the week without fail and update if needed later depending on how injury reports and other developments go. 

Yeah that stipulation is fair because someone could get on here and pick for only 6 weeks and get 80% right. It is the other 11 weeks that would could bring that % way down. In 2021, I had a streak for a month (4 weeks in a row) where I was right at 80%.

Yeah, my picks result in Yahoo league came very close to the winner here at the end of the season, so you guys really played below your standards :D

 

I usually just miss out getting the entries in here, otherwise I do it regularly every week in Yahoo league

Last season was real difficult to pick. Teams were so inconsistent and you had good teams losing to bad teams more times than not.

@2006Coltsbestever You know what happened in 2021? We agreed on dang near every game lmao… and we were both right most of the time. 

Yeah I had a game lead on you going into the last week. We agree'd on every game the last week. I know you probably think I was doing that so I could win the Trophy but I really wasn't. It would have been a legit strategy but that last week almost every game was an obvious pick. So we picked the same games. You and I kept going back and forth all year. I have to admit around week 14 or 15 I think it was, I was saying to myself this guy might beat me chuckling homer simpson GIF- I felt like I was Apollo and you were Rocky (Rocky 1). I just held on barely. You and @Chrisaaron1023are always great competition.

@RollerColtI hope you do participate, because as Apollo said after Rocky 1, "I won but I didn't beat him". I felt like in 2021 I won, but it was a Draw. That still bugs me eventhough this is all fun. I take my predictions/picks serious though. I am already taking the Colts, so go with the Jags. Jags will win the South IMO but I think for 1 game we get them :thmup:.

 

If it comes down to someone within 1 or 2 games at the end of the season. We could add the playoffs picks in at that point.

That’s the plan, Stan. Last year ended up in chaos for me personally. This year hopefully life slows down a bit!

I did, I was actually 170-99-2 and the no contest. Thanks for the correction. I only had 3 more wins than you had. There were 272 games played so that makes sense 170+99+2+1 =272.

Still day to day but you gotta imagine he’ll be playing. He’s been running and throwing at practice and working 11 on 11s.

Yeah, probably plays then... Bengals seem to have slow start every year and I read in their website from fans saying he's had some sort of niggles every year to start the training camp. Unless the injury could get worse, he plays.

Undecided if ill participte this season but while here I'll put my Thursday pick in.

 

A toss up for me but I'll go with

Lions 26 ......Jake from State Farms Team 27 OT

How does the OT work out?

 

They both are in 20-20 at the end of regulation, then Lions score 2 FGs and Mahomes scores last second TD?

 

.... Except I'd think Lions would've won the match if they get to score 2 FGs while Chiefs still couldn't score at all..

I doubt he plays but I still went with KC. I would be surprised if Mahomes lost his home opener on banner night. I think the Lions are going to be good this year too.

The Lions were terrible on the road last year and great at home. I don't like their chances in Arrowhead tbh. I'm still waiting on Kelce, but I'm tempted to pick the Chiefs even if he doesn't play.

@2006Coltsbestever btw, my waivers just came in in my $25 ESPN league, was able to drop Irv Smith for Dalton Schultz. Nice upgrade at TE for free. :)

Nice. I quit playing a few years ago but won my league in 2018. That seems like 20 years ago lol. My QB was Luck and I had Hopkins that year.

Nice! I've gone down from playing around 30 yearly leagues to 2. I now play around 200 bestballs and daily fantasy football every week. Easier this way than having to change 30 lineups and make add/drops multiple times a week.

I used to play in a league with 12 people from 2014-2019. It took me 5 years before I finally won. The guys in my league quit playing once COVID hit in 2020. We did our drafts at a bar every year. It was wild. We would all meet up right before opening day. Have some beer and wings. We had some crap talkers with their laptops. It was hilarious.

That's awesome! Sounds like a lot of fun!

 

I've been doing my league on ESPN for 6 years. Made the playoffs 5 out of 6 years, won twice. 3rd, 5th, 1st, 1st, 2nd, 2nd in the past 6 years in that order. This will be year 7. Honestly still a blast to play every year. I always tell people in that league I use all my luck there as I always seem to avoid injuries. I'll get a ton in the Colts league and in daily fantasy, but in this league I always avoid the landmines lol! haha

Yeah my league was through Yahoo. That lineup I had in 2018 was brutal great. I drafted Luck on a gamble because of him coming off injury and Luck tore it up. Hopkins tore it up too.

    • Man I feel real strong about Brian Thomas jr. I think it's on and cracking if we get him. His game is just consistent and he is such a hard cover. I like him being paired with Pittman. I really do!
    • This is probably the most exciting nonplaying event of the year and it’s tomorrow. I just hope that Balllard  and the scouting department I’ve done their job thoroughly
    • @2006Coltsbestever @NFLfan   Kirk has been treated much better and with much more respect than Wentz was treated in Indy. And was showed with Love and truckloads of money in Minnesota, and was defended constantly with much more ferocity by Vikings fans than people defending Ballard in Grievances thread.    it'd be crazy to think of injustice against Kirk for a few minority who criticize his play.    We're Going back and forth on Kirk debate which will go on for eternity, but I struck Gold when I saw recently @Superman explaining how he felt watching Wentz playing with other teams before he got to Indy and how it felt watching him play for Colts when you're emotionally invested with the franchise.    There's no other way to perfectly describe Kirk Cousins' career and his QB play.   For every fan around the NFL, especially for fantasy football fans, Kirk will be a hero and am above average QB. But, when you're emotionally invested in your favourite franchise and Kirk plays QB for your team, you would come close to understanding how excruciatingly frustrating his play and smartness and game awareness are (or shortage of them are), that all contributes to team missing playoffs many years and even when they qualify, no one sees Kirk as a threat in playoffs. Ever. Your team would be paying Elite QB Money for that, and you'd be constantly in debate with criticizers Vs defenders. Until he plays for your team, you won't realize that, and I totally understand.    Anyway, happy to pass on that frustration over to Falcons fans, they'd know soon. First of all, Kirk takes at least a season or two to trust his OL, even if you put an elite line and weapons around him, and it's all in his head. I'm going to sit back and read Falcons forums for Fun in 2024 Season! Good Times! 
    • I have no idea how it will all shake out, but I have my popcorn ready.
    • There are no owners in the NFL that are perfect people. Some owner's demons are more public, some not so much, but they all have them. There's much more to the free agency issue and the Colts than most are aware of. There are a lot of intangibles most will never consider. That said, there is more to almost every aspect of any organization that most will ever be aware of. Those are often the things that matter most.
