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)
Kareem Hunt is on pace to become the first player in NFL history with at least 10 rushing and 10 receiving TD in a single season.— Micah Adams (@MicahAdams13) November 4, 2018
This after leading the NFL in rushing as a rookie.
Legitimately has to be one of the best starts to a career by any RB in NFL history.
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).
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
