My Fantasy Pick’em: Thursday Night Picks [Broncos at Chargers]
Welcome to our weekly My Fantasy Pick’em where Dan Schalk, Brandon Reid and Orlando Torres pick all of the NFL games straight up. At the end of the season we will crown one the champion of all champions. You can check all three out on the My Fantasy Podcast airing weekly here on My Fantasy Sports Talk.
Week 5 of the NFL schedule saw all three guys perform admirably. Dan finished the week with an 11-3 mark while Brandon and Orlando were only a game behind finishing with a 10-4 record. So with five full weeks complete below are the current standings of the three My Fantasy Pickers.
Dan Schalk: 46-29
Brandon Reid: 41-34
Orlando Torres: 38-37
Thursday Night Picks
Denver Broncos (4-1) at San Diego Chargers (1-4)
Dan Schalk: Denver Broncos. The Chargers sure know how to lose football games. They could be undefeated if not for the final two minutes of every single game they have played this season. They won’t be so lucky this week as the Broncos defense will shut down Philip Rivers and Co.
Brandon Reid: San Diego Chargers. I realize the Chargers are 1-4 and the Broncos are 4-1. But this is a short week and it’s a division game. Division opponents know each other’s strengths and weakness’ so the games tend to be close. Not to mention Siemian might be quarterbacking, or it might be Lynch, and Gary Kubiak is sidelined this week. The Broncos have beat three struggling teams on their way to 4-1 while the Chargers have lost their last three games by a total of eight points. I’m taking a gut feeling flier on San Diego this week.
Orlando Torres: Denver Broncos. Not even a full week of preparation would help the Chargers. I’m convinced they are cursed. Unfortunately for team and their fans, Thursday night won’t get any better, especially with Denver coming off of a loss. Denver wins.
