Miller’s Week 16 NFL Winners, ATS, Survivor and Fantasy

December 25th, 2010 · 5 Comments

Last week, I was 12-4 on winners (143-81 on season / 63.8%) and went 8-5-1 vs spread (105-113-2 / 48.2%) AND STILL beating the Herald’s Greg Cote on winners for season. Confidence picks were 3-1 (42-25 / 63%). Survivor was 2-1 (38-17 / 69.%). NOTE: I am not a professional handicapper. I do this for enjoyment purposes, but if I can beat at least one major market columnist on season-long winner and/or spread picks (who could that be?), I will have deemed this a successful season!

Fantasy Note: I am alive in one league for top honors and playing for 3rd in numerous others. Peyton Manning had to throw his TDs to Collie so that did me in in one league, while Foster and Hillis decided to have their worst outputs of year on the same day. That’s ok, because it’s not as bad as what happened to my friend Bryan: Ahead by 2 points with GB driving for potential winning score, on Fourth down with time running out, the Patriots defense got a sack-fumble recovery quinella and ended Bryan’s season – with a 1-point loss. Sorry Bryan (but congrats to my other friend Salo who benefited with the win). If anyone has horror stories (or last second wins) please feel free to post.

    If Slobrano isn`t replaced as coach, i`d be stunned. Home losses aginst the 3 most anemic
    teams of the past 3 years ( bills,browns,lions),
    did him in. I see Cowher taking the job !!!

    Also, congrats to the Heat on crushing the LAKERS, laying claim to the BEST team in the NBA and the 2011 NBA CHAMPS.
    Isn`t it amazing how easily the HEAT are winning now…..

    MIAMI HEAT- 2011 nba champions !!!!!!!!

    Pressure on the Dolphins to change ????

    -Since the Miami Heat are a guaranteed LOCK to win the NBA championship this year, how much pressure is now on Dolphin Mgt. to make major changes ????? I say a new big name coach and top notch QB are a must to compete for fan dollars……. EM ??

    Miller’s Week 17 NFL Picks for Winners, ATS, Survivor and Fantasy

    Last week, I was 8-8 on winners (151-89 on season / 63%) and went 8-7-1 vs spread (113-120-4 / 48.5%) AND STILL beating the Herald’s Greg Cote on winners for season. Confidence picks were 2-3 (44-28 / 61%). Survivor was 1-1 (39-18 / 68%). NOTE: I am not a professional handicapper. I do this for enjoyment purposes, but if I can beat at least one major market columnist on season-long winner and/or spread picks (who could that be?), I will have deemed this a successful season!

    Fantasy Note: One championship is in the bag, with 3 more “in the money” finishes secured. One league’s fate is still undecided so must sweat it out with Brady, Big Ben, Jamaal Charles, A.Foster, Wayne and Marshall to go. Let’s see how much these starters go in mostly irrelevant games for NFL purposes (Ben, Charles, and Wayne excluded). Cannot believe that the Fantasy season is coming to a close…Wait…I still have some Playoff leagues ahead! The holidays last through the Super Bowl for me folks.
