In today’s OTC podcast I go over the Jets Thursday night loss to the Patriots and then in the middle of recording NFL picks for the week we get news of the Percy Harvin trade to the Jets to give some quick thoughts about.
After another fun week of FanDuel with the readers of the site we have another game set up for this week. The entry fee is again $2 and I’ve expanded the field to 10 teams, which hopefully we can fill. We have it set up so it wont cancel if we fall short but it seems like there is enough interest to get to 10 teams. Top 3 teams will win prizes for the week. You can sign up up until the 1PM games kickoff.

Now that we are nearly halfway into the season some of us unfortunately are already turning our attention to where our favorite teams will be selecting in the upcoming NFL draft. Hopefully this tracker will give you a better idea for your mock drafting or fan discussions.

The projected wins is based on a regression formula so that’s why in some cases teams are already above … Read the rest
