On the heels of last week’s hugely successful Polar Vortex edition of Against The Spread we bring you the even harsher Lake Effect version.
If you happen to be hunkered down in a western New York snow cave while reading this, don’t fear. Not only do I bring you successful picks, but also the best FanDuel plays for Week 12.
In their loss to the Detroit Lions on Sunday, the Green Bay Packers put forth one of their worst offensive performances of the Aaron Rodgers era. Their run game was nonexistent, many of Rodgers’ passes were off and their wide receivers dropped too many catchable balls.
With Aaron Rodgers healthy, the Green Bay Packers entered the 2014 season with expectations of contending for a Super Bowl title.
However, they’ll have to improve significantly if they want to dethrone the defending champion Seattle Seahawks should they meet again in the postseason.
It’s easy to look at a draft immediately after it ends and declare a “winner” and “loser” because none of those draft picks have ever played a game. Now that those players have a full season under their belts (and with the 2014 draft right around the corner), it is a much better time to look at the outgoing rookie class and try to figure out which were the best picks.
Week 17 will be more exciting than usual.
There are still four playoff spots up for grabs, with just one team locked into a playoff position and likely resting its regulars. The end result will be one day, 16 games, and a lot of drama.
