I promised myself that I wasn’t going to play any fantasy football or do anything else this year other than just watch football, but there is now a wager at the office. Â One of my friends thinks he can easily beat my record of last year (169/256 or 66%) after I told him it’s harder than what one would think. Â Heck, I think he even mentioned he can get close to 75% for the season. Â So the bet is whether or not he can beat my 66% from last year, the winner buys lunch. Â Of course there’s another friend that wanted in on the action, and then I was asked to compete. Â With that said, here are my picks for week one, projected winners are in bold:
THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 4
Washington Redskins at N.Y. Giants 7:00 p.m.
