2010 Football Board – Week 16 Recap

16 weeks down, one to go. As usual, Matthew is making a comeback late in the season. He was able to pull off a tie in the baseball board this year, can he at least accomplish that or will Nate dominate the rest of the open bets and easily take the board?

Completed Bets:

  1. Who has more fantasy points in week 16: L. Blount or P. Hillis?
    Blount had a monster rushing game and beat Hillis (who had a horrible game) by a margin of 16-3.
    The fans were correct in voting, as they Blount had the majority of the bets 9-8.
    Winner: Blount (Matthew)
  2. Who has more receiving yards: Felix Jones (-50 yds) or Marion Barber?
    Jones has 404 yards (factoring in the handicap) and Barber has 49 yards receiving. Barber will most likely not put up 350 yards receiving next week.
    Winner: Jones (Matthew)
  3. Who has more fantasy points from week 2 on: Shonn Greene or Matt Forte (-10 pts)?
    Forte has 144 pts (factoring in the handicap) and Greene has 86 pts. Forte’s solid week 16 game wrapped up this bet.
    Winner: Forte (Nate)

Open Bets:

  1. Who has more fantasy points: Clinton Portis or C.J. Spiller?
    Portis is at 37 pts and Spiller is at 41 pts. Spiller took the lead this week and as long as he doesn’t fumble away every carry he has next week, he should win the bet.
    Projected winner: Spiller (Nate)
    Confidence Meter: TMR <—–—-|–——-o>Nate
  2. Who has more fantasy points: Wes Welker or Mike Sims-Walker?
    Welker is at 121 pts and Sims-Walker is at 91 pts. Both had horrible weeks and Sims-Walker will have to have a game of the ages to win this bet.
    Projected winner: Welker (Matthew)
    Confidence Meter: TMR <0——-–|—-——>Nate
  3. Who has more fantasy points: Donald Brown or Cadillac Williams?
    Brown is at 71 pts and Williams is at 82 pts. It was nice knowing you Donald Brown. Joseph Addai and Dominic Rhodes dominated the carries in week 16.  If Brown is to win this bet, he’ll need to vulture a couple of touchdowns next week. Cadillac continued to get just enough work to get a couple of points.
    Projected winner: Williams (Nate)
    Confidence Meter: TMR <——-|-——-0->Nate
  4. Will Joe Flacco throw for 4,000 yards?
    Flacco has thrown for 3,497 yards and is on pace for 3,730. Throwing for 102 yards will derail you from your quest to 4,000 yards pretty quickly. I’ll go out on a limb and say that I don’t see Flacco throwing for 503 yards next week.
    Projected winner: Under 4,000 yards (Nate)
    Confidence Meter: TMR <——|———0>Nate
  5. Who has more fantasy points from week 6 on: Dustin Keller or Vernon Davis?
    Keller has 35 pts and Davis has 71 pts. Both had 7 points in week 16 and Davis leads the bet by 36 points. It’s not out of the question that Keller could get that many points but it’s highly unlikely.
    Projected winner: Davis (Nate)
    Confidence Meter: TMR <——–|——-–0>Nate
  6. Who has more fantasy points from week 8 on: Pierre Garcon or Miles Austin?
    Garcon has 70 pts and Austin has 82 pts. Both had good weeks but Austin should win this bet as he’s just about the only healthy WR in Dallas, but despite the 12 point margin this bet can easily go the other way.
    Projected winner: Austin (Nate)
    Confidence Meter: TMR <——-|—–0—->Nate
  7. Who has more fantasy points from week 9 on: Felix Jones or Ronnie Brown?
    Jones has 77 pts and Brown has 63 pts. Brown still managed to find a way in to the end zone again to post a 12 point week. The 14 point lead for Jones should be enough to hold off Brown.
    Projected winner: Jones (Matthew)
    Confidence Meter: TMR <0-——|———->Nate
  8. Who has more fantasy points from week 15 on: Deion Branch or Steve Johnson?
    Branch has 5 points and Johnson has 17 points. Branch will probably play 3 quarters next week, according to Pod Vader, so he’ll have to get deep a couple of times for him to have a chance at winning this bet.
    Projected winner: Johnson (Nate)
    Confidence Meter: TMR <——–|—–0—->Nate

Nate is projected to win the board 18-11. Matthew needs to make a couple of wagers this week if he wants to win the board. There’s only two close bets that Matthew could steal away from Nate but that won’t be enough.
