Week 17 Pick'ems


Last week I was 11-5, (110-52-1 for the season).  And I hit on two of my three upsets last week with wins by NO and SD. 

By the way that is a .679 average which is higher than most of the Experts at Yahoo and the Yahoo users. I do not have my results for all 240 games since I did not publish them in public until a few weeks into the season. This week I see the following winners:


ATL
BUF
BAL
DET
TEN
HOU
NO
NYG
PIT
DEN
GB
NE
SD
SF
SEA
DAL (total score 50)




Good luck with the last week of the NFL Regular Season

Ask the Experts Question: What is one fantasy lesson you've learned from the 2012 season?



What is one fantasy lesson you've learned from the 2012 season?


Perhaps there is something to young, running QBs who start in their first year. 2012 has three such rookie QBs in the top 13 overall: RG3, Andrew Luck and Russell Wilson. The NFL is ever changing, but the recent rule changes favor the passing offense and a scrambling QB. I will be more likely to pull the trigger on a young running QB in the future. 





ASK THE EXPERTS appears weekly at http://www.fantasyindex.com/ with answers to a new question posted Thursday morning.

Sam Hendricks is the author of Fantasy Football Guidebook, Fantasy Football Tips, Fantasy Football Basics and Fantasy Football Almanac 2012, all available at his website, http://www.ffguidebook.com/, at all major bookstores, and at http://www.amazon.com/. He is a 20+ year fantasy football veteran who regularly participates in the National Fantasy Football Championship (NFFC) and finished 7th and 16th overall (out of 228 top players) in the 2008 and 2009 Fantasy Football Players Championship (FFPC).
