No weekly bets this week so I’ll breakdown the season long ones.
- Who has a better year: Tomlinson or Turner?
Turner currently leads LT in scoring at 138 to 67. If Turner is out for the next 3 weeks, then I expect LT to make this bet a little more interesting. LT does have some nice matchup with KC, Denver and Cleveland the next 3 weeks to close the gap.
Projected winner: Turner (TMR)
- Will Julius Jones gain 1,000 yards?
Currently sitting 509 yards and this week’s injury puts his chances at 1,000 yards in jeopardy. Before the injury he was on pace to barely break 1,000 yards.
Projected winner: No (Nate)
- Who has more fantasy points: F. Taylor or B. Wells?
Beanie currently leads this 55 to 31 and should run away this barring some sort of injury. Taylor may be back this season but he probably won’t score enough points to catch up.
Projected winner: Wells (TMR)
- Who has more fantasy points: Romo or Rodgers?
Rodgers leads this 185-146. Rodgers will run away with this one since it doesn’t appear that he’ll ever have a bad fantasy game. His lowest point total is 13 points and the next lowest is 18 points.
Projected winner: Rodgers (Nate)
- Who has more fantasy points: D. Williams or Turner?
Turner is currently ahead 138 to 137 but with the roll that DeAngelo is on and the time that Turner will miss, it’s looking like it’ll be DeAngelo’s bet to lose.
Projected winner: Williams (Nate)
- Who has more fantasy points: Orton or Cutler?
Cutler is ahead 127 to 115. Despite Cutler’s tendency to throw INTs he always seems to make it up in yardage and throw a couple of TDs. Orton’s injury may put him out of this bet.
Projected winner: Cutler (Nate)
- Who has more fantasy points: Orton or Edwards?
Orton has a substantial lead of 115 to 63. Buffalo is a mess and even if Orton did miss a couple of weeks it doesn’t look like Edwards can close the gap enough to make this interesting.
Projected winner: Orton (TMR)
- Who has more fantasy points: R. White or S. Smith(CAR)?
White leads this 99 to 68. Delhomme is actually looking competent so Smith should get more consistent numbers. He’ll need a huge week to catch up to White but I don’t think Delhomme can give Smith that opportunity.
Projected winner: White (TMR)
- Ravitz-Berry Kicker Challenge
This one will go right down to the last week as the two keep exchanging leads.
Projected winner: Too close to call
- Is Pierre Thomas a top 15 RB?
I don’t have the week 10 numbers yet but he’s still hanging around #15. This one is really too close to call but if I had to pick a winner I think he’ll end up right around #15 but on the lower end of that.
Projected winner: No (Nate)
- Which Steve Smith has more fantasy points from week 5?
The Giants’ Smith has 45 points from week 5 and the Panthers’ Smith has 40 points. I like the Giants version of Steve Smith a little bit more. This bet should come down to the wire though and could very well be decided by whoever can manage one huge week.
Projected winner: Giants’ Smith (TMR)
- Who has averages more fantasy points per week starting week 6: Cotchery or Edwards?
Cotchery is leading at 8.5 pts/game versus Edwards’ 5.75 pts/game. As long as Cotchery can stay healthy he’ll win this bet.
Projected winner: Cotchery (TMR)
- More fantasy points starting week 8: Stewart or J. Jones?
The Daily Show leads this 41 to 25. Jones is out for at least a week and Stewart is part of a run first offense which has me leaning towards Stewart for the win.
Projected winner: Stewart (Nate)
- Is Chad Ochocinco a top 10 WR?
He’s currently sitting around the #10 spot but he’s got some cake matchups later on (Detroit, Cleveland, KC) so he’ll get his points.
Projected winner: Yes (Nate)
- More fantasy points starting week 10: Flacco or Palmer?
Palmer leads it 7 to 6 after one week but Palmer should pull ahead with some easy matchups. I can see Baltimore leaning more on the run down the stretch and limiting Flacco’s points.
Projected winner: Palmer (Nate)
So, as I have it projected right now the board will come down to whoever wins the Ravitz-Berry Kicker Challenge. Nate has 8 projected winners, with 4 bets already won to give him 12 wins. Matthew has 6 projected wins with 6 bets already won to give him 12 wins as well. How fitting would it be if the bet was decided by the most worthless roster spot in all of fantasy football, the kicker?
