THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 15

RB Saquon Barkley NYG & CB Chidobe Awuzie DAL

And here come the Giants in what will likely be a "too little too late" late-season charge. Saquon Barkley came as advertised, what a special player he'll be. There will be a decent amount of offense in this one from both sides though Barkley will pace the Giants.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 15

Helmet_St._Louis_Rams_1

The Rams, and specifically Jared Goff, play much better on offense when they are home, which is welcome after a forgettable Sunday night. Carson Wentz is expected to miss this contest and the Philadelphia secondary is already riddled with injuries.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 14

Helmet_San_Diego_Chargers_1

The Chargers play very well in Los Angeles as they’ve won eight out of their last ten games at home. On the other hand, the Bengals do not travel well against teams with winning records. It looks like the Bengals will be without A.J. Green as well.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 13

Helmet_Green_Bay_Packers_1

The Packers haven’t been a great pick at any point this year and this is certainly the last opportunity. Aaron Rodgers may not look like himself but losing to this Cardinals team at Lambeau would an ultimate low.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 12

Helmet_San_Diego_Chargers_1

The Chargers’ schedule does not get any easier the rest of the year as they still must face the Steelers, Chiefs, Bengals, Ravens and Broncos. This is the week to use them before their schedule gets tough.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 11

Helmet_Carolina_Panthers_1

The Panthers have had 10 days to recover from the pummeling in Pittsburgh last Thursday. While it certainly was a night to forget, the Panthers have shown that they can bounce back the following week after losses like this. They travel to Detroit to catch a reeling Lions team that has dropped three straight.

Pick’Em & Survivor: Week 10

Helmet_Green_Bay_Packers_1

The Miami defense is bad, which is partly due to all its injuries. It is true that Miami held the New York Jets to six points last week, but we all know that traveling to Green Bay and facing Aaron Rodgers is quite a different story.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 9

Helmet_Chicago_Bears_1

It is Nathan Peterman time again. He will be leading a Buffalo offense that is averaging less than 11 points per game. Can Chicago score 20 points? Why yes, yes they can. Making them the top Survivor selection of the week.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 8

Helmet_New_England_Patriots_1

With Sony Michel being injured, the Patriots will have a tougher time controlling the clock and the game, even if they do get out to a huge lead. I rarely choose a survivor pick while also going with the underdog to cover the spread, but 15 points is a wide cushion.

PICK ‘EM & SURVIVOR: Week 5

Helmet_Cincinnati_Bengals_1

The Bengals are shaping up to be one of the best teams in the AFC, but their schedule isn’t that easy. This is one of the last times you can reliably take the Bengals besides their week 8 matchup against the Buccaneers.

PICK ‘EM & SURVIVOR: Week 4

Helmet_San_Diego_Chargers_1

Top 5 Pick ‘Em Season Record: 6-9 Los Angeles Chargers -10.5 (vs. San Francisco) – Jimmy Garoppolo‘s season ending injury is very unfortunate, but this team had a slim chance of making the playoffs anyway. C.J. Beathard now gets the ...

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 3

RB_Bilal_Powell_NYJ_2

Welcome my fantasy brethren to another edition of The Prognosticator, may it circle around the moon. Welcome back. It’s already Week 3 of the season and boy is time flying. In a couple of weeks all the 4-game suspensions that ...

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 1

QB_Matthew_Stafford_DET_1

I have heard some say that you can point to this game if you're looking for why the NFL's TV ratings are down. Why televise the Jets at the Lions in front of a national audience? Oddly, what's going to happen here is a very entertaining game of football for fans of the game.

The Fantasy Sharks Writers Best-Ball Analysis Draft is complete. This popular off-season league style is known by some as Best-Ball, to others Draft-Only and to some old school fantasy folks, Draft Master leagues. MyFantasyLeague launched MFL10s leagues a few years ...

2017 SITE CHAMPION: DMcDuke

Lombardi_Trophy_Confetti_1

DMcDuke bested Lab in the Great White Shark League to become our new Site Champion.  Lab was the defending Site Champion from last season.  A truly heroic effort from both teams against a league full of ex-Shark League Champions and ...

THE PROGNOSTICATOR: Week 14

TE_Rob_Gronkowski_NEP_3

I do not expect the Rob Gronkowski suspension to have any effect, in fact quite the opposite, giving him a week off really only strengthens the Patriots playoff chances. Chris Hogan is expected back but until we see him at full speed I don't think you take the chance.

PICK ‘EM and SURVIVOR: Week 11

Helmet_Kansas_City_Chiefs_1

All statistics in this matchup favor the Chiefs. Andy Reid is 16-2 in his career following a bye week, the Chiefs are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 road games and the Giants have only won two of their last 14 games as home underdogs.

PICK’EM & SURVIVOR: Week 10

Helmet_St._Louis_Rams_1

The Rams are taking care of business on both sides of the ball and Jared Goff is coming off the most impressive game of his career. Losing Deshaun Watson has had the effect we all expected on the Texans offense. In his two games this year, Tom Savage is completing only 45% of his passes.

PICK ‘EM & SURVIVOR: Week 9

Jacksonville_Jaguars_Helmet_1

Jacksonville is in the interesting spot of having the league’s best pass defense and worst run defense. Once Jacksonville gains a lead the run defense doesn’t matter, as it can control the clock with Leonard Fournette and shut down any comeback attempts.
