Week 10 Bold Predictions: Nick Mullens comes down to Earth this week

Giants have a half way decent defense?

NFL: Oakland Raiders at San Francisco 49ers Stan Szeto-USA TODAY Sports

Week 10 Predictions

Prediction 1: Detroit Lions overcome a 6.5 pt spread and beat the Chicago Bears by 5.

Justification: Chicago is riding high off a big win vs. Buffalo and Detroit quite the opposite in a rough loss to Minnesota. I’m expecting Detroit to come out amped up against Chicago.

Prediction 2: Nick Mullens crashes down to earth with less then 250 yards and just as many Interceptions as Touchdowns this week.

Justification: The Giants are actually a decent defense against opposing QBs and he certainly got some attention after his amazing start last week.

Prediction 3: Calvin Ridley is a top 15 WR this week.

Justification: He’s projected outside the top 20 and with the injuries to Cleveland’s secondary, he will shine.

Prediction 4: Todd Gurley has his worst fantasy performance of the year this week against Seattle.

Justification: Seattle has a good rush defense plus two things – I think the Rams air the ball out a bit and Seattle is actually playing well on the road as of late with 2 consecutive road wins (limited each opponent to less than 20 points).

Prediction 5: Michael Badgley (1% owned) scores over 10 points and finishes in the top ten kickers this week

Justification: With 9 points in week six and 8 points in week seven they had a bye week and sat to Caleb Sturgis who is now gone leaving the window wide open for him to shine against Oakland this week!

Week 9 Recap

Prediction 1: Baltimore holds Pittsburgh to 20 points or less.

Outcome: Pittsburgh scored 23 points, it was the third lowest total of the year, but still not 20 points also no turnovers created (Grade C)

Prediction 2: Kareem Hunt rushes for 100 yards for the 2nd time this year.

Outcome: He fell 9 yards short but he also had 3 touchdowns and finished as the best RB of the week (Grade B)

Prediction 3: DeShaun Watson was the best QB last week, he doesn’t land in the top ten this week.

Outcome: With 213 yards and 2 TDs to go with 38 yards rushing he finished 12th in a few leagues I saw (Grade A).

Prediction 4: Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Carolina Panthers have an over/under of 54.5. Give me under at 48.5

Outcome: Ouch. Egg on face here with the 2nd most total points scored this week I was WAAYYYY wrong here. (Grade D).

Prediction 5: Marvin Jones becomes just the 7th WR to score a TD against Minnesota this year.

Outcome: He had 66 receiving yards and no TDs (Grade C)

Here is how I will be grading my Bold picks this year

A – The bold pick happened as I stated
B – The bold pick did NOT happened as stated but the idea behind it was there (example I predicted Jesse James would have 0 TDs and fewer than 20 yards in week 2, he had 27 yards, the general idea to avoid him in fantasy was present.
C – The bold pick did NOT happen and the overall feel for what occurred had you saying “meh”
D – The bold pick was nowhere near accurate
