Here’s how I fared last week…
– ESPN had Le’Veon Bell going for 19 points which was exactly right. Good work there (I thought that was a tad high). Point: ESPN
– I thought it was odd that ESPN had Miles Austin going for nine points…even against the lowly Jags. Turns out it’s not a great bet to assume Brian Hoyer gets the ball to Miles f-ing Austin in the end zone. Point: SportsGrid
– I’m not quite sure why they had Romo projected for 14 points against the Giants, in Dallas, in the middle of his best season ever. Even with two picks Romo managed 21. Point: SportsGrid
– Jared Cook was projected for 10 points against the Seahawks, which seemed crazy high until you saw the game and then it kind of made more sense. That being said, he went for two. Point: SportsGrid
That brings my season record to 13-13. Let’s take a look at Week 8’s worst projections, shall we?
