"We can't afford any slip-ups, especially after setting ourselves up like this." -- Boise State WR Austin Pettis, after an opening 33-30 win over Virginia Tech
The NFL season opens in just two more days, with a big game on Thursday night. If you’re not yet prepared – get shakin’.
FanDuel has launched its football contests, with a range of contest options (price and number of competitors) each week – including a weekly $10 contest for which the weekly winners from each of the first ten weeks will earn a trip to Las Vegas on the December 5th weekend to compete for a $25,000 grand prize. I’ll be providing sortable stats for FanDuel football this year, although I have nothing posted for that yet, and may not have those up until next week. Since each weekend offers contests that are independent of any other week, this offers a great chance at a fresh start each week, especially for those who think they excel at picking weekly matchups.
In GuruGolf, two teams tied for the top bestball score of -52, including the full season leader, who lengthened his lead going into the final two weeks. Three teams tied for the worst ball honors with a +46, including the full season leader, who lengthened his lead going into the final two weeks. Although neither of those two teams has an insurmountable lead, there is much work to be done!
