MFST’s NFL Pick’em: Week 1 Thursday Night Picks
Finally, after months of anticipation the NFL is back–and with the NFL returning, our weekly NFL Pick’em returns as well. For those who don’t know, the hosts of the My Fantasy Podcast (Dan, Brandon and Orlando) pick every game straight up and crown one champion of all champions at the end of the season. Our 2016 champion is no other than the Founder of MFST, Dan Schalk. Here’s how last year’s standings played out…
2016 Final Regular Season Standings
Dan Schalk: 159-93-2 (63%)
Brandon Reid: 156-96-2 (61%)
Orlando Torres: 150-102-2 (59%)
Ahh sweet victory….now onto the 2017 season….
Thursday Night Picks
Kansas City Chiefs at New England Patriots
Dan Schalk: New England Patriots. No way I am going against Bill Belichick and Tom Brady at home with an entire summer to prepare for Andy Reid and the Chiefs. I can see the game staying close for the first half, with New England pulling away in the second half.
Brandon Reid: New England Patriots. Although I really want to pick Kansas City here, New England’s defense is too tough for me to put confidence in the Chiefs offense, in Week 1, and especially after losing Spencer Ware so close to the start of the season. I guess I’ll stick with the strategy of last year and not pick against the Patriots. At least not when they are in Foxboro. For you fantasy players, I do like Cairo Santos a lot in this game. Patriots win 24-16
Orlando Torres: New England Patriots. I’m a huge believer in the fact that Kansas City could make the playoffs as a wild card or even take the division, and I absolutely love me some Kareem Hunt and that defense, but not in Week 1. The Patriots still run the AFC so expect a beat down on kickoff night.
