2016 NFL Weekly Picks Contest

Recommended Posts

With the NFL regular set to begin on Thursday night, I am pleased to announce that this year's Weekly Picks contest is now open. This is my second year now running this competition, and I'm very excited to go through this again. It makes the NFL more fun. 

 

Now, that being said, there is one...small? nah, not really...change that I am thinking of implementing to this year's contest. From 2008-2011, there was a different website I was a regular member of that also contested a Weekly Picks' contest, but that site specifically played the game using the point spread. You guys obviously know what I mean by that, but I'll give the visual anyway:

 

Carolina vs. Denver (+3)

 

If Denver wins outright, or loses by 1-2 points, any picks for Denver would get the nod. If Carolina wins by a FG, it's a push. If Carolina wins by any more than that, Carolina picks get the nod.

 

Now, I'll post the Week 1 schedule here with the point spread in mind (point spread effective of when I post the next week's schedule, which I'll probably try to do on Tuesday morning, but I make no promises; previously, the Thursday point spread was the standard, but that was in a pre-TNF every week world, so I'm not wait on that). If you guys are interested in playing point spread this year, I'll keep it going throughout the rest of the season. If you guys would rather play the game straight up, then ignore the point spreads and I won't post them again for following weeks' schedules. I figure I'm giving enough time for opinions to be voiced.

 

I prefer point spread, obviously, as I feel it involves more strategy in making selections. I will respect the preference of the majority of the players, however.

One rules reminder: Picks for the specific games are to be in by the kickoff of those respective games. I, ever the hypocritical cynic, do believe in the honor system with this game, though. People here have lives, things get forgotten about, sometimes a game might accidentally be forgotten to be selected out of the vast Sunday swath (though I'm hoping to amend that a bit if I post the week's schedule in advance). If a game is forgotten about, you can send a DM or send me a tweet (@KramerIndustry) and, more often than not, I will be generous enough to give credit. If Cleveland is facing New England and NE wins and you forget to make that pick, then I'll logically presume NE would've been the pick and give the nod (do they even play each other this year? Who cares). All I will ask is not to abuse this, is all.

 

For my own convenience, I do record both wins and losses, but ultimately wins is the only category that matters.

I prefer straight-up picks as well. 

 

Also, I'm doing the NFL.com Weekly Pick 'Em, and, for my sanity, I'm going to post matchups in order by which NFL.com lists them so that both picks match up and I don't make any mistakes. 

 

Here goes! 

 

Week 1 

Thursday

Carolina at Denver

 

Sunday

 

Oakland at New Orleans

Cleveland at Philadelphia

Minnesota at Tennessee

San Diego at Kansas City

Cincinnati at New York Jets

Tampa Bay at Atlanta

Buffalo at Baltimore

Chicago at Houston

Green Bay at Jacksonville

Miami at Seattle

Detroit at Indianapolis

New York Giants at Dallas

New England at Arizona

 

Monday

Pittsburgh at Washington

Los Angeles* at San Francisco 

 

*I started to type "St. Louis" :(
