Everyone take your seats and get ready...because this week, for the first time in recent history...it's the ON TIME EDITION!!!

Jason Getz-USA TODAY Sports

See, I knew I could do it! After weeks of delays and random publishing times and all that, I finally got this up in time to not be rushed and panicked, with full analysis and everything. And judging by my performances, it's a good thing that I have something to celebrate.

Holy crap, Smathis93! Out of a possible 22 points, you nailed it this week for 18 of them. For those keeping score back home, Smathis93 picked 10 of 11 winners correctly, and picked correctly against the spread in 8 of 11 games. The only one he didn't get right? He picked Penn State to cover 2.5 against Maryland. Other than that game, he was spot-on with winners, and 80% against the spread. Those are insane numbers.

Users packerman, bo_w, and JohnHeisman came through with strong 15-point showings this week. Atlanta's original team and Cade led the staff with 13 points apiece this week. LVP this week was eekanerd, with only 7 points, including no correct spread picks. Hope you weren't tempted by Vegas this weekend, eekanerd!

As seen in the table above, the average this week was 11.58. I came in sub-par, with just 11 points. On staff, Grant finished with 12 while Tyler Duke and MagnaCarterGT tied me with 11 of their own. Ben Tankersley was the staff LVP, with only 9 points.

The leaderboard above accounts for everyone with at least 100 points on the season. The first thing you should notice is that we have NEW CO-LEADERS! Previous leader CaliGT had a rough week with only 9 points, while ClavinCliff and kenneth bonner took advantage to take the lead back. ITPatlien also jumped CaliGT, but the whole top cluster remains very close. 12 players are within 6 points of the lead -- a margin easily conquered in only a week or two. An exciting finish is due up!

Atlanta's original team continues to dominate the rest of the staff, even with the added-in style points of missing a week. I remain in second (3 points down from AOT) with Cade in third.
