NFL Week 4 Picks — Free For All Special

These are the condensed versions of picks for the NFL Week 2 games between the Detroit Lions and San Francisco 49ers, and New England Patriots and Jacksonville Jaguars for Winners and Whiners. Confidence rating is in parentheses. Note: The 5/5 does not represent the best overall pick of the day’s games, simply the best pick of each individual game.

Writer’s Note: I do not have any games specifically assigned to me this week since I am partaking in some personal frivolity this upcoming weekend. But it also gives me the chance to try something new, which is to make one pick from each game and assign a value in which 11 picks will be 3/5, two will be 4/5 and two will be 5/5. If it goes well enough (read as: I don’t crap the bed like I did in Weeks 1 and 2), I’ll carry it through the season.

So thank you for reading!

Week 3 Review: Thanks, Minnesota. No really, thanks. The other two games, though, were fairly straight forward. The only thing Travis Kelce failed to do in the Chiefs win was catch a touchdown pass to make that prop bet hit, and that the teams took their sweet time in starting that journey to 65 points. As for Cowboys-Seahawks, those six winning picks out of six have been framed as a reminder that every now and then, I drink I’m smart and I know things.

That said, onto the Week 4 picks!
