Week 11 High Level Overview

  • 7 games netted positive amounts (vs. 8 in Week 4)
  • 4 games netted negative amounts (vs. 4 in Week 4)
  • Biggest variances: Eagles -33 and Broncos +8

Current Totals –I’m taking out Salti and Paddi, they didn’t go through the trenches on this the way the rest of us did.

  1. Feslen 12 (He got hit by the ‘Titan’ic loss which offset an otherwise almost flat Chiefs/Bucs split)
  2. Mark -45.5 (I was slammed by the Eagles loss which offset my massive +1.5 between the Chiefs and Jaguars (who I again remained floored – blew a 16 point lead in the fourth quarter and was the only team to lose despite scoring 50 points).
  3. Pete: -56 (Insert triumphant horns – the FIRST participant to EVERY score positive in three consecutive weeks!!)
  4. Sixtus: -65 (He was hit with the Eagle bug -33 offsetting his impressive Broncos pick +8).

By and large it was a good week of selections if you back out what happened to the Titans and Eagles which took 75% of us down (backing out those three picks we were a collective +15.5)

Idiom of the week: Eke: to add, supplement or grow

History: It is an old verb meaning to add, supplement or grow previously used for “eke-name” meaning additional name. This was misinterpreted later on for “An eke-name” which ultimate was interpreted as “nickname.”

Ex: The ‘eke-name’ for my picks would be ‘minimal impicks’

Happy Thanksgiving!
