NFL Week 16 Fantasy Football Pick ‘Em

Sports Thoughts

gettyimages-613839282Unfortunately for Kings Court, my picks of Cam Newton and Todd Gurley came up huge as they combined for 75 points alone in a 127-82 victory for the home team. However, with only a 3-2 series lead, there is still plenty of football left starting with a tricky Week 16. Let’s take a look at Game 6 in our epic battle.

Quarterback

KC- Cam Newton. With Newton coming off of one his best fantasy performances of his entire career last week, and with the Panthers still fighting to guarantee themselves a playoff spot, Cam is in the perfect position to give fantasy owners back-to-back huge games to get to and win the championship: Cam in the clutch.
ST- Russell Wilson. Cam Newton is a great option this week like Kings Court said, and it’s extremely hard for me to go against him. However, Wilson is still the…

NFL Week 15 Fantasy Football Pick ‘Em

Sports Thoughts

Image result for keenan allenKings Court’s 82-71 victory last week ties the series at 2-2 as we move to a pivotal game 5. With only 3 weeks left in the regular season, this round is as important as ever. Feel free to play along with us or show your support for your favorite picks. Let’s take a look at how you can win your semifinal fantasy matchups.

Quarterback

KC- Drew Brees. While I considered Russell Wilson for obvious reasons, the Rams seemed to have had his number defensively last time they played. Brees, on the other hand, is going up against a Jets team whose starting quarterback will be out. Now that Bryce Petty will likely get another shot, look for the Saints to run the game offensively with the run and pass, as their offense will stay on the field for the majority of the game.

ST- Cam Newton. Maybe he isn’t the…

NFL Week 14 Fantasy Football Pick ‘Em

Sports Thoughts

The playoffs are here and it’s the most crucial week yet for Fantasy Football. Kings Court and I struggled a little last week, as he was able to best me 76-69 after Le’Veon Bell went untouched into the end zone. I’m pretty convinced he paid off the Bengals….but in any case, it’s on to Week 14 as we see if he’ll come back to tie me, or if I move to a 3-1 lead in the series. Let’s take a look at playoff fantasy football.

Quarterbacks

KC- Alex Smith. The Raiders may be on a two-game winning streak, but don’t let that distract you from the fact that they are consistently rolling out one of the worst secondaries ever seen on an NFL field. Even with the Chiefs’ recent struggles, Smith has a strong core of quick, large, and skilled receivers that should consistently rack up yards after catch.
