MVP of the week was user jerrlee, whose perfect score of 6 has quietly worked him into a tie for third overall on the season! Impressive showing to you, jerrlee. Additionally, there were 10 users who went for 5 of 6 correct picks -- I'm going to have to up my game in setting these lines. Congrats to all of those winners this week. Again, the staff was led by Atlanta's original team, while Tyler Duke again made a strong showing with 4 correct picks.

I'm starting to realize I'm not very good at picking against my own lines -- at least, I'm not as good as most of you would seem to be. I got 2 correct, which is extremely disappointing, although that tie with Grant, acedarney, and MagnaCarterGT still didn't make us staff co-LVPs. That honor went to Ben Tankersley, whose 1 correct pick tied him with reggieball for overall LVP of the week. Ben, this is going to come up on your performance review.

Average for the week was just short of 3.4 correct picks, even with three lines coming in at a sub-50% success rate. (The other 3 lines had success rates of 72.9%, 78%, and 91.5%.)

ClavinCliff is clinging on to his lead with 40 correct picks on the year (near 4.5 correct per week), but he's got a surging Tyler Duke hot on his tail, now in sole possession of second place. Right behind him is a set of four contestants, with one being staff member Atlanta's original team. Meanwhile, the guy setting the lines is tied for 25th with a whole bunch of people that have almost all had at least one fewer week of selections. I'm averaging just barely over 3 correct picks per week -- which, shouldn't I be right around 50% of the time if I'm doing this right? Maybe I'm just trying to make myself feel better. I'll investigate and report back.
