2019 Week 11 NFL Picks
After a week that saw upset after upset, our guys finished with mediocre records. Brandon extended his season-long lead with a 7-6 week while Dan ended at 6-7. How will Week 11 play out?
Standings after Week 10
Brandon Reid: 89-58-1
Dan Schalk: 83-64-1
Steelers at Browns
Dan Schalk: Cleveland Browns. I’m shocked Pittsburgh has been able to win games against the teams they have. Props to them–but I still believe this is a mediocre at best football team.
Brandon Reid: Cleveland Browns. I think the addition of Kareem Hunt will add a spark and confidence to the Browns offense. I think they can outscore a Steelers team that has been rolling, but can struggle offensively.
Jets at Redskins
Dan Schalk: New York Jets. Give me Sam Darnold and Le’Veon Bell over Dwayne Haskins and the old AP.
Brandon Reid: New York Jets. I can’t trust the Redskins, as bad as their offense is, and now turning to rookie QB, Dwayne Haskins.
Jaguars at Colts
Dan Schalk: Jacksonville Jaguars. I was on the Jaguars bandwagon this preseason before Nick Foles went down–now he’s back and so are the W’s.
Brandon Reid: Jacksonville Jaguars. The Colts are slipping and the return of Nick Foles may spark the Jags for the rest of the year.
Bills at Dolphins
Dan Schalk: Miami Dolphins. Oh ya, ride that Dolphin train.
Brandon Reid: Buffalo Bills. The Dolphins win streak ends this week. Buffalo won the first matchup by 10 points.
Cowboys at Lions
Dan Schalk: Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys will look amazing this week against a banged up Lions team, but when it matters, the Cowboys do not look amazing.
Brandon Reid: Dallas Cowboys. Both teams had disappointing losses last week. The Cowboys are they better team and they bounce back.
Texans at Ravens
Dan Schalk: Baltimore Ravens. I just enjoy watching Lamar Jackson play football–especially when he is on my fantasy team.
Brandon Reid: Houston Texans. This should be a very exciting, high scoring game. Deshaun Watson is fearless and will put his team in position to pull off the upset on the road.
Falcons at Panthers
Dan Schalk: Atlanta Falcons. Maybe last week’s upset can help salvage an ugly season and the Falcons, behind former Wyoming Cowboy Brian Hill, score at will against the Panthers.
Brandon Reid: Carolina Panthers. The Panthers are a solid football team. They’ll have plenty of opportunities to score against the Falcons.
Saints at Buccaneers
Dan Schalk: New Orleans Saints. I don’t see the Saints losing back-to-back games against subpar teams (even though the Tampa offense is on a historical pace).
Brandon Reid: New Orleans Saints. The Saints had a surprising loss to a bad Atlanta team last week. They’ll be fine this week against a Bucs team that gives up 31 points per game.
Broncos at Vikings
Dan Schalk: Minnesota Vikings. This game will not be close.
Brandon Reid: Minnesota Vikings. The Vikings are playing too well to drop this one at home.
Cardinals at 49ers
Dan Schalk: San Francisco 49ers. Kyler Murray is going to get a ‘welcome to the NFL’ moment this weekend when the Niners defense takes him back to school.
Brandon Reid: San Francisco 49ers. The Niners are just too much for a rookie head coach and QB to deal with right now.
Patriots at Eagles
Dan Schalk: New England Patriots. I do not pick against Bill Belichick, especially if he is coming off of a bye.
Brandon Reid: New England Patriots. I can’t pick against Bill Belichick after a bye week. Otherwise, I think the Eagles could do it to the Patriots again.
Bengals at Raiders
Dan Schalk: Oakland Raiders. The Raiders will be a playoff team this season–that is crazy and shows you just how bad the AFC is.
Brandon Reid: Cincinnati Bengals. I’m picking the Bengals because why not. They have to be extremely hungry for a win now at 0-9, and the Raiders are beatable. Maybe AJ Green will finally play and give them a lift.
Bears at Rams
Dan Schalk: Los Angeles Rams. Both offenses are bad, and despite the Rams having a JV offensive line, I like them to pull out the victory.
Brandon Reid: Los Angeles Rams. After last week, I’m writing off the Rams as serious contenders. But they can still beat a bad Bears offense.
Chiefs at Chargers
Dan Schalk: Kansas City Chiefs. The Chargers have not looked right all season and with one-game to shake the rust off, Pat Mahomes will be back.
Brandon Reid: Kansas City Chiefs. I’m looking for the Chiefs to start rolling again with a healthy Patty Mahomes.
