My Fantasy Pick’em: Thursday Night Picks [Cowboys at Vikings]
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 champion of all champions. You can check all three out on the My Fantasy Podcast airing weekly here on My Fantasy Sports Talk.
After a perfect Thanksgiving, Brandon carried that momentum into Sunday’s games where he went 11-2, taking the #TopDog spot in the rankings over Dan, who is one game behind after a 10-3 week. Orlando needs some help, but can still make a charge after going 8-5 in Week 12. Here are the updated standings heading into Week 13….
Brandon Reid: 106-68-2
Dan Schalk: 105-69-2
Orlando Torres: 98-76-2
Thursday Night Picks
Dallas Cowboys (10-1) at Minnesota Vikings (6-5)
Dan Schalk: Dallas Cowboys. The Vikings defense is better, but the Cowboys offense is light years ahead of Minnesota and that will be the difference in this game.
Brandon Reid: Dallas Cowboys. I want to pick Minnesota at home because like I said last week, it’s just a matter of time before Dallas drops a game. This could be that game, but home field advantage is not enough for me in this case. The Vikings offense is offensive and the Cowboys D is pretty good. The Cowboys are top five in rushing, points for, and points against. I just don’t believe the Vikings defense is enough to win this game. If they could have beat Detroit last week and got some momentum going, maybe I could’ve picked them this week. Their weaknesses are finally drowning out their strengths.
Orlando Torres: Dallas Cowboys. Who cares if Minnesota has top 5 defense currently in the NFL, they’re still led by Sam Bradford. Dallas will have a tough time early on, but once Dak gets going and spreading the ball around I don’t see Bradford being able to bounce back and keep his team in the game.
