Not sure what an eliminator pick is? No worries, we’ve got you covered.
Essentially, an eliminator pick is who we absolutely with certainty think will win the game. There is, however, one caveat.
We can only pick each team once. That means, we cannot pick the Patriots or the Vikings or even our beloved Denver Broncos more than one time. Over the course of the season, we will track the success (or lack thereof) with each of our staff in picking these games along with who they can longer pick.
Mason Yellico (6-2)
Teams used – Chargers, Vikings, Chiefs, Saints, Packers, Colts, Cardinals, Houston
Cameron Parker (6-2) Colts over Jaguars
Teams used – Ravens, Browns, Raiders, Chargers, Rams, Vikings, Packers, Carolina
Graham Tiedtke (5-3) Falcons over Browns
The Browns, despite drafting a quarterback who will have a tremendous career (at least in my eyes), are still not where they need to be in order to take the next step in closing out games on top. They’ve come close a couple of times (most notably against the Steelers and Saints), but that doesn’t cut it. They have to prove they can do it. Maybe their next head coach can get things going.
Teams used – Broncos, Bears, Rams, Bills, Patriots, Chiefs, Colts, Cowboys
Andrew Wade (4-4) Jets over Bills
Just always bet against Nathan Peterman. His interception to touchdown ratio is 7:1. That’s not good.
Teams used – Titans, Vikings, Seahawks, 49ers, Jaguars, Detroit, Chicago, Washington
Derek Esquibel (6-2) Saints over Bengals
Bengals are without AJ Green and the Saints are the hottest team. The Saints continue marching.
Teams used – Titans, Jaguars, Browns, Chargers, Packers, Falcons, Chicago, Kansas City
Sayre Bedinger — Chargers over Raiders
The Raiders are in shambles and the Chargers seem to be rolling right now.
Teams used – Patriots, Dolphins, Lions, Giants, Packers, Bears
