Chris Ransom's Pick


Week 7 is in the books. Tanya Holmes went 12-2 in week 7 to build on her lead. Tanya Holmes maintained her lead from week 3 and is now 72-35. I had I went 9-5 in week 7 and remain in second place at 68-39. Jason Bantle went 8-6 in week 7 and dropped to third place at 66-41. Jesse Lucas moved into fourth place and went 11-3 in week 7. He's now 63-44 on the year. Oren Shiri is now in last place, after being last years pickem champion at 61-46. Follow us on Twitter @DraftUtopia for more awesome content.


Why the Miami Dolphins Will Win: Miami has Brock Osweiler starting in relief of Ryan Tannehill. THat helps Houston, but it also fuels Osweiler to beat his former team who handed him a million dollar contract.


Why the Houston Texans Will Win: Houston has a lethal pass rush with Jadeveon Clowney, Whitney Mercilus, and J.J. Watt at full health. They also got Bernardrick McKinney and Zach Cunningham at 3-4 middle linebacker. Houston has a lethal front 7 along with a good secondary that is eager to get a pick 6 off of Houston's former starting quarterback Brock Osweiler.


Prediction: Houston enters as a 7.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $290 dollars, the maximum bet is $350 dollars with the average gambler betting around $320 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45 points. I am going with Houston to win and to cover with the over.

The Draft Utopia podcast just exceeded 150,000 listeners. We're halfway on our way to 200,000 is already underway. We got 9,000 new downloads last week after getting 33,000 downoloads in the month of September after eclipsing 100,000 total downloads.


Why the Philadelphia Eagles Will Win: Philadelphia has a great roster. Their lineup is healthier then Jacksonville's. That's why they are favored to win.


Why the Jacksonville Jaguars Will Win: Jacksonville tends to do better in London. I feel like Blake Bortles will ball out in London just to keep his starting job for another week.


Prediction: Philadelphia enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $140 dollars, the maximum bet is $160 dollars with the average gambler betting around $150 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 41.5 points. I am going with Philadelphia to win and to cover with the over.

Chris Ransom's Pick


Tony Mario's NFL Power Rankings are back. 2018 NFL Power Rankings. They will be updated weekly.


Why the Denver Broncos Will Win: Denver is a team divided celebrating a party when they got 10 days to prepare for Kansas City after a Thursday Night Win. They deserve to get swept by Kansas City.


Why the Kansas City Chiefs Will Win: Patrick Mahomes is coming off a strong game against the Cincinnati Bengals. He wants to prove he can score 30 points on Denver's defense. I have a feeling he will with how good he's been playing as of late. Left tackle Eric Fisher and right tackle Mitchell Schwartz can keep Denver's pass rushers off the edge in check.


Prediction: Kansas City enters as a 10 point favorite. The minimum bet is $400 dollars, the maximum bet is $500 dollars with the average gambler betting around $450 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 55 points. I am going with Kansas City to win and to cover with the over.

Cleveland Browns 2-4-1
Versus
Pittsburgh Steelers 3-2-1


Chris Ransom's Pick


You can check out US Football Tips our newest partner with us at Draft Utopia. Feel free to compare our point spreads to theirs.


Why the Cleveland Browns Will Win: Cleveland tied Pittsburgh back in week 1. Pittsburgh wasn't prepared for Cleveland in week 1. Baker Mayfield is starting over Tyrod Taylor. Baker hasn't played in an environment like Pittsburgh. Myles Garrett and Emmanuel Ogbah can blitz off the edge. Pittsburgh also to worry about Denzel Ward blanketing Antonio Brown. Le'Veon Bell won't play again so this game could be pretty even.


Why the Pittsburgh Steelers Will Win: Pittsburgh won't make as many mistakes from turnovers as last time. Plus with Baker Mayfield coming to Pittsburgh this could be a learning experience for Baker so unlike in week 1 where the Browns won the turnover battle, I expect Pittsburgh to dominate in the turnover battle this time around.


Prediction: Pittsburgh enters as a 8 point favorite. The minimum bet is $330 dollars, the maximum bet is $400 dollars with the average gambler betting around $365 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 51 points. I am going with Pittsburgh to win and Cleveland to cover with the under.

Washington Redskins 4-2-0

New York Giants 1-6-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


Our 2019 NFL Draft Game has our top fifty posted. I plan on tweaking the board later this week. Unlike our 2018 NFL Draft Game, I've modified this one so it is more mobile friendly. We even posted a top 50 NFL Draft Game board and will begin to add players for 51-100 as well as the top 25 for our 2019 MLS Draft Game.




Why the Washington Redskins Will Win: Washington is 4-2 and has control of the NFC East at the moment. They may be able to build on their momentum.


Why the New York Giants Will Win: New York realizes how much their offensive line and secondary sucks. Nate Solder had problems with Atlanta and Landon Collins is the only asset on their entire secondary. There is a good reason Eli Apple got traded to New Orleans. Evan Engram is healthy again. Eli Manning is due for a breakout game.


Prediction: Washington enters as a 1 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $120 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 42 points. I am going with New York to win and to cover with the over.

Seattle Seahawks 3-3-0

Detroit Lions 3-3-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


I posted 2019 NFL Mock Draft that is two rounds. A lot has changed since last thursday though. I may do a mock based on the current NFL standings with how quickly the week has gone by.


Why the Seattle Seahawks Will Win: Seattle has had two weeks to prepare for Detroit. This feels like a do or die game for both teams.


Why the Detroit Lions Will Win: Detroit faces a Seattle defense that does not have anyh of the current members of the Legion Of Boom. They also have a much better offensive line then Seattle so I love the Lions over Seattle for this reason. Matthew Stafford should have no problem outscoring Seattle.


Prediction: Detroit enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $135 dollars, the maximum bet is $155 dollars with the average gambler betting around $145 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49.5 points. I am going with Detroit to win and to cover with the over.

Tampa Bay Buccaneers 3-3-0

Tanya Holmes set her week 8 lineup on Draft Kings. This week 8 lineup is a lineup I like on paper, but Tanya is the overall picks leader on Draft Utopia. Go to Draft Kings and sign up with the promo code draftutopia for a free chance to win up to a billion dollars this week on Draft Kings.




Why the Tampa Bay Buccaneers Will Win: Tampa Bay has a potent offense with Jameis Winston, Mike Evans, Cameron Brate, O.J. Howard, Chris Godwin, and DeSean Jackson. Despite having a terrible offensive line and no running game, Tampa bay has a shot to win if the offense clicks and if Tampa Bay wins the turnover battle versus Cincinnati.


Why the Cincinnati Bengals Will Win: Kwon Alexander joins Vernon Hargreaves III on injured reserve. Gerald McCoy is also injured. Vita Vea hasn't done anything yet. Even without Billy Price, it feels like Joe Mixon could have a field day versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers now that he's back at full health.


Prediction: Cincinnati enters as a 4.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $185 dollars, the maximum bet is $225 dollars with the average gambler betting around $205 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 54 points. I am going with Cincinnati to win and to cover with the under.

Why the New York Jets Will Win: New York has been inconsistent throughout the season. Sam Darnold has a lot of inconsistent weapons, a lack of experience at quarterback, and faces a formidable Chicago Bears defense led by Khalil Mack. Those are a few reasons why I love Chicago this weekend.


Why the Chicago Bears Will Win: Chicago has a lethal defense. The turnover battle between Sam Darnold and Mitchell Trubisky will be critical. I feel like Darnold has the higher ceiling, but Trubisky has more experience. Chicago should win this home game with the better defense. Expect Jordan Howard to run wild in this contest and potentially rack up 100 rushing yards as well.


Prediction: Chicago enters as a 7 point favorite. The minimum bet is $260 dollars, the maximum bet is $310 dollars with the average gambler betting around $285 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 45.5 points. I am going with Chicago to win and to cover with the under.

Chris Ransom's Pick


Speaking of Bill Clinton. Every week leading up to the College Football Playoff we will have Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff where Bill Clinton ranks the top 4 teams in College Football. This is the third year Bill Clinton has posted his College Football Playoff.


Bill Clinton's College Football Playoff Selection Special



  1. Alabama Crimson Tide

    Alabama is the defending champion. Nick Saban is once again the biggest pimp in College Football.





  2. Clemson Tigers

    At #2 we have the Clemson Tigers. Clemson beat Alabama to win the 2017 College Football Playoff. Alabama beat Clemson in the Semifinals of the 2018 College Football Playoff.





  3. Notre Dame Fighting Irish

    Notre Dame has their best defense since 2013. The Catholic Church and the Pied Piper have a lot to be excited about when it comes to Notre Dame Football. Yahoo man!



  4. Previous Rank Unranked



  5. Central Florida Golden Knights

    Central Florida had a perfect season in 2017 despite missing the 2018 College Fooball Playoff. Central Florida is 7-0 despite losing Scott Frost and is ranked 10th in the current College Football poll. If they win out and go unbeaten they can jump #4 LSU assuming they lose to Alabama, #5 Michigan assuming they lose to Ohio State, #6 Texas assuming they lose to West Virginia, #7 Georgia assuming they lose the SEC Championship to Alabama, #8 Oklahoma assuming they lose to West Virginia, and #9 Florida assuming Florida loses to Georgia on Saturday. Central Florida wasn't ranked as high as ten at this point last year and they had a perfect season which is why Central Florida may get their playoff wish of playing last years one loss SEC runner up Alabama. Central Florida also defeated the Auburn team that defeated Alabama.



  6. Previous Rank Unranked





Why the Baltimore Ravens Will Win: Joe Flacco is fifth in passing yards in 2018. This isn't an Average Joe season for Baltimore's signal-caller named Flacco. Maybe Baltimore should start Lamar Jackson, that's a bold strategy Cotton. Let's see if it pays off. Seriously though, I love both of these defenses, but I'm a fan of Baltimore's defense more because Carolina has an awful offensive line, plus the Ravens are too disciplined to lose two in a row. Baltimore is 2-0 after losing a game this season and can improve to 3-0 with a win this week.


Why the Carolina Panthers Will Win: Carolina has a formidable defense led by Luke Kuechly and Thomas Davis. If the defense plays as good as they did in Philadelphia last week, then Carolina canh clog up running lanes with Dontari Poe and Kawaan Short at defensive tackle.


Prediction: Baltimore enters as a 2 point favorite. The minimum bet is $110 dollars, the maximum bet is $130 dollars with the average gambler betting around $120 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 49.5 points. I am going with Baltimore to win and to cover with the under.

Indianapolis Colts 2-5-0
Versus
Oakland Raiders 1-5-0


Chris Ransom's Pick


All ten teams in the BFFL League have team logos. I'll use this section to rank where the 10 teams stand on Yahoo.



  1. Brees Nutz 7-0

    Mitch Pabst owner of Brees Nutz dodged a bullet when Ezekiel Elliott avoided his suspension. Mitch used a third round keeper on Todd Gurley and a seventeenth round keeper on Alvin Kamara. Mitch doesn't have Drew Brees, but he replaced Brees with Aaron Rodgers. This team has DaVante Adams, Adam Theilen, and Allen Robinson along with Jimmy Graham as his tight end and Matthew Stafford as his number two quarterback. Last years league champion looks like the heavy favorite to be the first BFFL league member to repeat since the league went to ten teams as the BFFL enters year sixteen. Brees Nutz won Bantle Bowl III last year, and this team reminds me of Jimmy Dicken's team a few years ago when he entered Bantle bowl II as the defending Champ before Jason got even with Jimmy after Dicken won the leagues first Bantle Bowl. Mitch led the BFFL with 186.58 fantasy points in week 1 and swept Team MouseRat in back-to-back weeks. Mitch is now 7-0 and the only unbeaten team left in the league at the halfway point of the season. I play Mitch in week 8, but with Melvin Gordon on a bye week, Mitch doesn't have to worry about Gordon.






  2. The Chosen Ones 6-1

    Our league commissioner used a keeper on Cam Newton and got Tom Brady in the second round. Jason Bantle has a stacked team because I decided to wager Leonard Fournette in hopes of Jason getting Joe Mixon in the fourth round, but because of that, I ended up moving up for Drew Brees. Bantle got Fournette and still managed to trade for Joe Mixon. His receiving core consists of Tyreek Hill, Brandin Cooks, and Sammy Watkins. He has Travis Kelce at tight end. Bantle eclipsed 200 fantasy points in week 2. Even though Jason lost, to Breez Nuts, I'll even admit that Jason has a contender on his hands since he won the league two years ago. I feel like its pretty obvious that Mitch, Jason, and myself have the three best teams in the league this year. If Mitch doesn't repeat, I honestly believe it will be Jason Bantle who wins Bantle Bowl IV.



  3. Previous Rank 3rd




  4. Gangster Squad 6-1

    Despite being an underdog versus Team MouseRat, I ended up winning with 168 points in week 1. The decision to trade for Drew Brees paid off in week 1. The other player I used a keeper on was a fourteenth round keeper on Jared Goff. I also have Melvin Gordon, Golden Tate, T.Y. Hilton, Cooper Kupp, Chris Hogan, and Michael Crabtree. Royce Freeman is my number two running back behind Melvin Gordon. I started Jack Doyle over George Kittle and somehow ended up winning in week 1. I picked up a critical win versus Avengers to start 2-0 which really helps my playoff chances. I picked up two more wins since week two putting me at 4-0. My team that I drafted by taking Drew Brees from Breez Nuts is 6-0. This is my strongest start for a Fantasy Team ever. Then Mark Sciubba got even with me for what happened in week 1 and that caused me to drop to 6-1. Now I get a tough schedule in the second half with Brees Nutz twice in weeks 8 and week 14. I get The Chosen One's in week 10, and I get The Avengers in week 11 which feels like a coin flip. Going 8-6 doesn't guarantee me a wild card spot. Luckily for me I still got a three game lead over the remaining 3-4 teams competing for a wild card spot. The bad news for me is my schedule in the second half of the season is much tougher.



  5. Previous Rank 2nd




  6. Taco Corp 3-4

    Last year three of the five league owners Brees Nutz, H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes, and Anti Bantle all started 1-0 and made the playoffs. Brees Nutz, The Chosen Ones, Gangster Squad, and Taco Corp all started 1-0. Taco Corp fell to 1-1, but they picked up a win to improve to 2-1. Taco Corp is still the four seed in the league despite a 3-4 record. Taco Corp gets a 2-5 TD Sprinkles team so I like their odds of improving to 4-4.





  7. Team Mouserat 3-4

    Mark drafted a really good team featuring Julio Jones, Saquon Barkley, and Odell Beckham Jr. The thing is he made the same rookie mistake I did last season when I neglected the quarterback position in a two quarterback league. He's one game back of a playoff spot right now despite having the talent to put together a contender. Team Mouserat is 3-4 after getting even with me in week 7. Mark has a chance to jump into the top 4 with a win and a Taco Corp loss. With Taco Corp playing TD Sprinkles and The Chosen Ones facing Team Mouserat, I don't like Mark Sciubba's odds of making it into the top 4 this week even though I believe he has the fourth best team in the league simply based on talent.



  8. Previous Rank 7th




  9. Avengers 3-4

    Avengers drafted a really good team that lost the League Title to Brees Nutz last year. Thanks to Le'Veon Bell's holdout, they are 2-4. Le'Veon Bell is continuing his holdout heading into the trade deadline so he won't play this week. Whoever loses the game between Avengers and H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes will be 3-5 and will really have their work cut out for them in the second half. Avengers is favored to win over H.B's Vinegar Strokes though and both teams made it to last years playoffs.



  10. Previous Rank 8th




  11. H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes 3-5

    H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes has dealt with some injuries this season. This team is on the right track with a winning record and is now fully healthy. Heath Bergman drafted Carson Wentz one pick before I did two years ago when I knew Wentz would break out after his rookie season. I even tried to move up with him. He also has Deshaun Watson playing the Bills this week. His wide receiver tandem features DeAndre Hopkins and A.J. Green. I barely got by H.B.'s Vinegar Strokes who now sits at 3-5 on the season.



  12. Previous Rank 5th




  13. TD Sprinkles 2-5

    Sorry Jimmy. Sprinkles are for winners. I've said this so much, that I'm afraid Progressive may sue me, but I'm going to keep saying this until TD Sprinkles has a winning record. I've basically used this catchphrase whenever Jimmy had a losing record.



  14. Previous Rank 6th




  15. Car RamRod 1-6

    Andrew Kermish one of the co hosts from our podcast is 1-6. He's dominating his other league on ESPN though.






  16. RES Express 1-6

    Riley, the owner of RES Express is replacing Anti Bantle in the league. I'm not sure what Anti Bantle did to piss off the rest of the league, but its not my business to comment on. I thought Riley had the worst draft of any of the leagues owners. Riley won a game finally. The odds of him doing worse then my 1-13 squad are down to nothing. He may match my 1-13 record, but the odds of that happening are pretty improbable too. Plus this first year owner has a chance to begin a two game winning streak by defeating Kerm on Sunday.






  17. Why the Indianapolis Colts Will Win: Indianapolis at least has a shot to salvage their season now that they are fully healthy. Nobody has ran away with the AFC South yet, so if the Colts can win against Oakland, then beat Jacksonville at home off a bye week in week 10, then this is a 4-5 team back in the thick of things as they enter the home stretch of the season. Oakland on the other hand traded Amari Cooper for a third first round pick, Marshawn Lynch is on injured reserve, and Donald Penn is on injured reserve. For those reasons, I love the Colts over Oakland this weekend.


    Why the Oakland Raiders Will Win: Oakland has nothing to play for. THey basically folded their season away. I still believe they can string together a few more wins, but for the most part their season appears to be over.


    Prediction: Indianapolis enters as a 3 point favorite. The minimum bet is $135 dollars, the maximum bet is $155 dollars with the average gambler betting around $145 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 50 points. I am going with Indianapolis to win and Oakland to cover with the over.

    Our Justin Herbert film session is now up. Herbert may not even declare for the 2019 NFL Draft, but he's cemented himself as the top ranked quarterback if he declares for the 2019 NFL Draft.




    Why the San Francisco 49ers Will Win: San Francisco does not have Jimmy Garoppolo or Richard Sherman. I'm honestly not sure how they can win this rematch.


    Why the Arizona Cardinals Will Win: Josh Rosen beat the 49ers a few weeks ago. He looked awful against Denver though. He heads back to Arizona looking for another win against San Francisco hoping to sweep the 49ers.


    Prediction: Arizona enters as a 1 point favorite. The minimum bet is $100 dollars, the maximum bet is $120 dollars with the average gambler betting around $110 dollars on this game.

    Chris Ransom's Pick


    Check out Rams Showcase hosted by Joe Branham on Spreaker. Tonight they preview the Packers VS Rams game.


    Listen to "Rams Showcase" on Spreaker.




    Why the Green Bay Packers Will Win: Green Bay has had two weeks to prepare for the Los Angeles Rams. This is the most complete team in the NFC in my opinion. If the Rams can beat Green Bay without any edge rushers despite having the leagues best offensive line it will speak volumes even without Aqib Talib. Rodgers can carve this secondary without Talib.


    Why the Los Angeles Rams Will Win: The trio of Aaron Donald, Ndamukong Suh, and Michael Brockers may be too much for the Packers offensive line which features Lane Taylor at left guard and Corey Linsley at center. If the Rams win it will be simply due to their defensive line having the advantage plus Goff winning the turnover battle versus Aaron Rodgers.


    Prediction: Los Angeles enters as a 9.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $350 dollars, the maximum bet is $450 dollars with the average gambler betting around $400 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 56.5 points. I am going with Green Bay to win and to cover with the under.

    I just cannot stand ESPN's Monday Night Football Coverage. Monday Night Football On KDKA is back with Bob Pompieni, Mark Madden, and Andrew Filiponi. Tonight the gang is in Minnesota because a Tom Brady VS Derek Anderson MNF game is completely one-sided.


    Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden and Andrew Filiponi covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA from Minnesota. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

    Madden: BOUNTY GATE! BOUNTY GATE!

    Filiponi: New Orleans is about to put a bounty on Captain Kirk. Drew Brees wants to get his revenge on Minnesota for last years playoff debacle.

    Pompieni: Yep Stefon Diggs really dug his way out of that situation. I like Minnesota to win this edition of Sunday Night Football on KDKA.

    Madden: BOUNTY GATE! BOUNTY GATE! Way to deflate our Monday Night Football coverage by screwing Bills fans over.

    Filiponi: Fuck the Bills. I like the Saints.

    Pompieni: Tonights game is brought to you by the US Bank.

    Madden: No tonights game is brought to you by Super Bowl 52 highlights becaquse fuck you Vikings you get to watch the team that beat you in the NFC Championship Game instead of ads.

    Pompieni: We'll be right back with kickoff after torturing you guys with US Bank ads and replays of Super Bowl 52.





    Why the New Orleans Saints Will Win: New Orleans is completely healthy. They even traded for Eli Apple on the New York Giants hoping he could come in and bolser this secondary.


    Why the Minnesota Vikings Will Win: Minnesota has Stefon Diggs who ended New Orleans season last year. Adam Theilen has dominated this season so I expect Kirk Cousins to ball out versus the New Orleans Saints. Minnesota has a formidable defense that can limit what the New Orleans Saints can do offensively in terms of what they have with their defensive line, linebackers, and defensive backs.


    Prediction: Minnesota enters as a 2.5 point favorite. The minimum bet is $135 dollars, the maximum bet is $155 dollars with the average gambler betting around $145 dollars on this game. The over or under on this game is 47 points. I am going with Minnesota to win and to cover with the over.

    Pompieni: Welcome to Monday Night Football. Bob Pompieni along with Mark Madden and Andrew Filiponi covering ESPN Monday Night Football on KDKA from Buffalo. Mark what are your thoughts on this game?

    Madden: Tom Brady and Bill Belichick will tear the Buffalo Bills a new one.

    Filiponi: Yes they will. I'm gonna need as much alcohol in my system aas Derek Anderson to get through this game.

    Pompieni: You've read way too much Walter Football Filiponi. We all got the Patriots winning tonight correct?

    Madden: DEFLATE GATE! DEFLATE GATE! Tom Brady has deflated Derek Anderson's magic flask. Roger Goodell needs to get on this shit ASAP so Brady can be suspended again.

    Filiponi: Yeah you're way too drunk Madden. I'm gonna have to confiscate Derek Anderson's magic flask.

    Why the New England Patriots Will Win: Tom Brady is facing Derek Anderson. This is the easiest pickem game all year. This can't possibly be a trap game with the Packers coming to Gillette Stadium next week.


    Why the Buffalo Bills Will Win: Sorry Bills fans like Mark Sciubba and Thomas Coburn. See above.
