There’s a tough matchup coming up on Sunday, and the Cincy Jungle staff seems to know it. After a four-way tie for first place last week, staff members are doing whatever it takes for a chance at the picks lead, even if it means picking against their favorite team.
Last week was a huge week for the staff, as only one person fell below .500 on the week while the majority of us were able to correctly pick nine or 10 games. This week, Rebecca (Browns), Anthony (49ers and Jets) and Scott (Chargers) landed hero picks after the staff went 0-for-4 on hero picks last week.
The fact that I tied for first place after being eight games back last week and am now still seven games back just goes to show both how talented our staff is when it comes to picking games and how far I have left to climb before I finally perch atop the standings. This is going to be a more difficult comeback effort than I had originally anticipated.
Rebecca’s lead has narrowed, as she now shares first place with Anthony, while Braden — fresh off back-to-back first place finishes — is only a game behind. Kyle, only two games back, has presumably taken a week off (but he can still get his picks in before Sunday — they just won’t be public domain), which will certainly have an effect on his placement in the standings. The biggest upset picks of last week were the Lions (Anthony and myself), Falcons (Rebecca and myself), Cowboys (Jason and Anthony) and Buccaneers (Anthony and Braden).
Which picks do you think have the potential to be upset picks this week? Which hero picks look like the best bets this week? Let us know in the comments below!
