It's that time of the year again: Time for the 10th Annual NFL Picks Contest for the 2019-20 season! Each week, you choose the winners of each game, and whoever has the most correct predictions at the end of the season wins the ultimate prize the forum has to offer...forum bragging rights and a temporary color change on the Discord!

This year will be a little bit different in how you make picks. This year, I ask that you send me a direct message on Discord or a Private Message on the MLBPPW forums to make your picks, with Discord being preferred. I tried to use Google Forms or SurveyMonkey, but issues with pick notifications concerned me, so I decided to hold off on it for this year. That way, we can have a little bit of suspense with making picks, and potentially reduce the amount of similar picks being made.

You will still be able to edit picks, but the contents of the edit must be explained in a separate PM or DM, especially if you're sending via Discord, because edit history is not tracked on Discord.

Other than that, rules remain the same: We will have a "rolling deadline" to make picks, but I prefer you get all your picks in before the Thursday games to have the maximum chance of getting as many wins as possible. If a pick is not made for a game, it counts as a loss. Ties do not count as a win or a loss.

Please express your interest in participating in this thread or in the Discord. Good luck this season!

The first game of Week 1 is Thursday, September 5, so please get in picks before that time.

I would like to clarify that I was also in first place at that time.

As such, I will be going for my third* crown.

Week 1 is in the books! A lot of people did well this first week, but who came out on top for the week?

Standings After Week 1

1. Rakumen 13-2
T-2. dishnet34 12-3
T-2. Zumikaku 12-3
T-4. GoTwins24 11-4
T-4. LetsGoMets77 11-4
T-4. philliesfan134 11-4
T-7. PP27 10-5
T-7. ZeroGibson13 10-5
T-9. AgentP 9-6
T-9. detroittigers15 9-6
11. Kungfupandacam 5-10


Shoutout to Rakumen for taking the early lead in the Picks Contest with a 13-2 record! He picked a couple of upset games with the Packers and Titans, which helped him pull away just a bit. The Lions-Cardinals tie did not count toward the standings.

Fraud of the Week

You have to ask? It's the Lions. You blew an 18-point lead and freaking tied one of the two worst teams in the NFL. *(censored)* alllllll the way off.

Dishonorable mentions: Browns, Bears

Good luck next week! My picks will be coming soon, and don't forget to PM or DM your picks!

Week 2 is in the books! A few upsets and a few easy victories this week, but who did the best in predicting them? Let's find out!

Standings After Week 1

T-1. Rakumen 24-7 (Wk. 2: 11-5)
T-1. Zumikaku 24-7 (Wk. 2: 12-4)
3. philliesfan134 23-8 (Wk. 2: 12-4)
T-4. dishnet34 22-9 (Wk. 2: 10-6)
T-4. GoTwins24 22-9 (Wk. 2: 11-5)
6. LetsGoMets77 20-11 (Wk. 2: 9-7)
T-7. AgentP 19-12 (Wk. 2: 10-6)
T-7. detroittigers15 19-12 (Wk. 2: 10-6)
T-7. ZeroGibson13 19-12 (Wk. 2: 9-7)
10. PP27 18-13 (Wk. 2: 8-8)
11. Kungfupandacam 11-20 (Wk. 2: 6-10)


Zumi and phillies had the best weeks this week, each going 12-4. Zumi was one of the few people to actually think the Lions were going to win (they did), and phillies was one of the few people that thought the Colts and Falcons would win. We now have a two-way tie at the top, and we'll see what happens in Week 3!

Picks Matrix

Record in unanimous games: 0-1

Fraud of the Week

The Panthers. You're facing a team that has quite possibly one of the most turnover-prone quarterbacks in the league, and you still let him win? Frauds. Y'all will be lucky to win the wide-open NFC South.

Dishonorable mentions: Chargers, Eagles, Titans

Good luck next week! My picks will be coming soon, and don't forget to PM or DM your picks!

Week 4 is in the books! There were a few upsets some easy picks this week, but could our leader hold his lead?

Standings After Week 4

1. Zumikaku 46-16 (Wk. 4: 10-5)
2. dishnet34 44-18 (Wk. 4: 9-6)
3. Rakumen 43-19 (Wk. 4: 8-7)
4. GoTwins24 39-23 (Wk. 4: 8-7)
T-5. philliesfan134 38-24 (Wk. 4: 5-10)
T-5. ZeroGibson13 38-24 (Wk. 4: 8-7)
7. detroittigers15 37-25 (Wk. 4: 7-8)
8. PP27 36-26 (Wk. 4: 8-7)
9. LetsGoMets77 35-27 (Wk. 4: 8-7)
10. AgentP 34-28 (Wk. 4: 5-10)
11. Kungfupandacam 20-42 (Wk. 4: 6-9)


Zumi clearly had the best week this week, being the only person in double figures in wins this week. I was the next best, with nine wins. Agent and phillies stumbled this week, posting 10-loss weeks. It's shaping up to be a three-horse race for the overall title this year between Zumi, myself, and Rakumen.

Picks Matrix

Fraud of the Week

The Rams. It appears Super Bowl fatigue is still a thing, and Jared Goff is still hungover. He has regressed sooooo hard this year, he can't beat the Buccaneers. This team ain't going places this year, fam.

Dishonorable mentions: Texans, Cowboys, Packers

Good luck next week! My picks will be coming soon, and don't forget to PM or DM your picks!
