 I'm not making any sort of prediction. :(

It may be best to just pack it in for the season, that 1 point lead I have on you is looking insurmountable!

This has been a real shit show so far.  I came in third this week I think, and that's my dropped score so far.  I guess there's a silver lining in that if I have a truly shitty week, I have a relatively high replacement.

It's just an odd year in general. Carolina and Arizona were both Top 5 teams entering the season and they're 1-3 and 2-3 respectfully, while Philadelphia and L.A. were both Bottom 5 teams entering the year and they're 3-0 and 3-1 respectfully.

Better week for me, but I forgot Lynch was starting for Denver or I wouldn't have picked them to win. He just seems like a rookie! Not used to seeing that after watching Prescott and Wentz

Make it 3 horrendous weeks for me in a row. I fell from 2nd to 8th. Appears I need to re-evaluate my picks and general thought process on the NFL this year.

Feels nice to finally have had a good week. Now back to the sadness of predicting a lot of toss up games.

Yup, they got us all. Knocked me out of my suicide pool too. Jerks.

My early week results were disappointing.  So I told all the quant dweebs at Big Corpski Inc. that if they tweaked their predictive models I'd authorize extra tartar sauce for the employee cafeteria.

Solid gameplan that paid off in spades. Kudos!

Also, it helps that I'm finally putting some effort into the confidence rankings. Ranking them in order was dumb.

Why aren't everyone's records adding up to 78?

The drop weeks coinciding with bye weeks, I guess? If your drop week was one of the weeks before the byes, the game total dropped is 16, whereas on the bye weeks it's 15 or even 14, methinks.
