Week 17 Picks
What’s up with these Football Picks?

Notes: So I’ve been satisfied with how well Football Weblog’s calculations have been doing in predicting the winners of NFL games this season.  Using only an algorithm designed to improve the accuracy of our fantasy football cheatsheets, Football Weblog trails the professional handicappers from Las Vegas by only two games.  The week 17 games have me worried however.  You see, the Vegas handicappers take into account the fact that several NFL teams will be resting their starters in preparation for a playoff run.  Football Weblog’s algorithm does not.  As a consequence, Football Weblog is picking a different winner this week in five games!  If my brain had a little more wattage, I would have ended this comparison after week 16 — like most fantasy football leagues do.  But what fun would that be?  Let’s go ahead and let ‘er buck and see how things play out!
