Week 11 Picks: Like Taking Candy from a Baby

Nick (hey that’s me!) is back in front of the camera for FY’s Week 11 picks. Well, his hands are in front of the camera; the rest of his body remains veiled so as to build suspense.

We all know what the truly suspenseful part of these picks segments is, of course: the props! Nick (still me) had to get uber-creative this week, since he was filming from home and 90-percent of his house is children’s playthings. (The other 10-percent is over-ripe bananas, but that’s a story for another time.)

This week, the FY crew is tackling the Dolphins at Rams, Texans vs Raiders (from Mehico), and Bills at Bengals. (I would have just used a dollar bill for Buffalo, but I literally did not have any cash in my house. It’s a brave new world. )

Do we see Jared Goff lighting it up in his first start? With weapons like Kenny Britt, Brian Quick, and Tavon Austin at his disposal, how could he not? Sorry, did I say “weapons”? That was an autocorrect. I actually typed “capons”. Yes, I’m calling his receivers roosters. But I digress.

So far, we’re 12-5-1 on the year, which ain’t too shabby. Especially since we’ve focused on tighter matchups and/or upsets (in lieu of picking against the spread).

Will we keep it rolling this week? Watch the video, get our picks, and tell us why (not) in the comments! Or tell us why [INSERT YOUR LEAST FAVORITE RACE] is ruining the world as we know it.
