Indy hosting Houston I think is a trap game - divisional game and Mills did pretty good last week.
Already used the Bengals and Rams.

Think I'm going with the Steelers too at home vs Seahawks. Geno Smith has zero TD passes vs PIT, plus Geno has thrown 2 INT and fumbled once against them. Not to mention the Seahawks RB are banged up vs the 9th-best run D.

You are enticing me to get this Steelers pick in the early part of the season and save the Rams…

yeah, not disagreeing but most of that was a long time ago. its hard to draw a correlation
Perhaps. Mark Sanchez and Mike Glennon did not get better with time. Cant see Geno suddenly lighting it up just because he played in less games the last 7 years.
:noidea:
Even in limited roles the past few years, he still was troubled with turnovers.

Its a valid point. But his weapons are far superior now too.

Common logic probably has most people saving the Packers for the Lions

Although I'm looking at their schedule now and it honestly doesn't look like a bad pick

I have a few rules of thumb that I like for Survivor and one of the top ones is never pick a division game.

Thats generally my rule too. But cmon. Packers have owned the Bears. Bears are without Hicks. Mack hasnt practiced all week. No Monty. And the Bears havent passed for over 200 yards yet. I think theyll need more than that to keep up with GB.

There are times I go against these rules, but there are other games I like better this week.

I chickened out. Changed from the Steelers (who I still think will win) to the Chiefs over WFT.

Chiefs still have 2 starters out on defense (Jones and a CB) and Tyreek Hill is questionable. I'm not saying it's a bad choice but too risky for me

You're killing my confidence.
Then that would leave me with either the Packers or the Steelers.
As much as I think the Packers will beat the Bears in Soldier Field, I cant bring myself to pick them.
So that leaves the Steelers at home vs a Geno Smith-led offense.

According to ESPN Eliminator, Chiefs have been picked by 12% of entries.

Tyreek is expected to play. You never know how warm ups will go, but it's a good sign.
