Yeah, you didn't do so well. Howard didn't do so well either, but wow.

It is pretty amazing though I was looking at the guys picking against the spread on The Athletic and ESPN and like 10 of us did better than them.

What's amazing about Dirk winning is that he got the most picks right and forgot to pick like 10 games. Look how many misses he had on his record...Dirk was 148-101. 2nd place was 147-111.

Congratulations to Dirk and a big thanks to bwgood77. I had a lot of fun playing with you all. Online fantasy groups can get really boring because a lot of people stop bothering after a few weeks. But this league had plenty of people picking until the end, which made it a great experience. I hope to play again next year!

It's done. See first post in this thread, which is edited for the new group. Also if you are in the NFL season group, and have an email attached to your espn account there should be a link there too.

Yeah, it was close until Dirk pulled away in the last couple of weeks. I had a real stinker the last couple as well.

Hopefully we get quite a few in this playoff pick em contest....we have more than I expected already.

I wanted to quote this so participants from last year's competition could join this year's playoff pick competition if they'd like. There isn't a list of people quoted for this year yet. Not sure if I'll have time to make one but hopefully those will see the thread.

I want so bad to pick the Raiders because they are rolling but with 83% of the public picking the Bengals it's hard to pick the Raiders straight up since there are not spreads.

I also think about how the Chargers just kind of handed them that game with penalties and a fumble deep in their own territory. But Burrow coming off injury too. I first picked Carr but it's hard to go against the 90% public.

When I say it's hard to go against big %s of people picking the other way I mean if I miss it really puts me behind the masses. On the other hand if I call it, I get a leg up on a most everyone. But it's risky.
