Hungry's Week 4 NFL Picks

Well after a slow start the hungry guy is absolutely LIGHTING IT UP this year in NFL. "Gomer Ron" had a tough day on the card yesterday so I thought I would come back to the publication and write a typical, hungry-no-loss-all-wins piece to get things back on track.

Packers -1.5: Wow congratulations to the Bears for beating the Jets by 8 last week on MNF... You managed to barely win after the Jets coughed it up 3 times and gave away points all night. No, congrats that's really great... The Packers need a win in the worst way and even though AR is a mid tier QB as best he knows how to beat the NFC North. Look for the Pack to roll - and for to roll around on the ground drunk as a result...

Colts -7: The Colts are kind of terrible, but Andrew Luck got what it takes to win at home. One of these 1-2 teams needs to turn things around this week and it won't be the Titans. My goodness how did they beat KC in week 1? Only explanation is because I took it, but aside from that these guys STINK!!!

Lions -1.5: Here is some recent fan mail i received: "Man there must be another lock on this card somewhere - week 4 is where the Hungry guy eats.." - Ben Miller
Remember that Jet squad I just described? Well they are about to face a semi-legit team this week (don't let me down Detroit) which means they have NO CHANCE. my guess is this misses off of some BS turn over in the last minute, but if that doesn't happen I will be glad I played

Probably more to come...

ESPN College Football Challenge: Week 5 Roster

Overthought the QB selections last week, but at least crushed it with Gordon. I have a gut feeling this will be my best week yet, so here's to turning things around.

ESPN Gridiron Challenge: Week 4 Roster

Still a solid season thus far. Relatively low total last week with guys like Rodgers and McCoy not stepping up.  Rolling the dice this week on some road QBs.

Chargers D makes for the best value of the week.

ESPN College Football Challenge: Week 4 Roster

Strictly playing the match ups this week despite some the players' performances year to date.  Certainly not the season we expected from Gordon and Langford, but if they can't get it going this week, it's just not going to happen all year.

ESPN Gridiron Challenge: Week 3 Roster (*UPDATE*)

UPDATE - With Foster most likely out, I'm swapping Morris back in this week.

Off to a strong start this year. No value picks this week, sorry I just didn't have the time, and wanted to get this out before tonight's game.

ESPN Gridiron Challenge: Week 2 Roster

It was decent showing for week 1 in the ESPN Gridiron Challenge.  The roster this week is one I might just keep for the rest of the year.  What it lacks in kickers and defense, is more than made up at every other position.

Week 2 Value Options:
QBs: C. Palmer ($5.9)
RBs: A. Ellington ($3.5)
WRs: B. Cooks ($4.8)
TE: D. Walker ($5.0)
Def: Green Bay Packers ($3.9)

ESPN College Football Challenge: Week 3 Roster

It was yet another tough week for the ESPN College Football Challenge.  I have to stop second guessing myself, and roll with my gut on these guys.  Here's the roster for week three:

Alternate Week 3 Options
  • QBs: D. Prescott (MSU) and R. Cato (MRSH)
  • RBs: J. Conner (Pit) and A. Jones (UTEP)
  • WRs: D. Funchess (Mich.) and T. Dural (LSU)
  • K: Arizona Wildcats
  • Def: Alabama Crimson Tide
