Congratulations to Blair Andrews, who not only won the Week 4 cash prize, but nearly doubled-up the next best entrant, Matt Wispe. This is a weekly contest, so the table is sorted by Week 4 score. I’ve included year-to-date scores, however, for reference. Andrews won the week on the strength of his Deshaun Watson and Duke Johnson recommendations. Last week, five analysts gave your lineups a double-digit boost, while the group as a whole averaged just over three points. Through the first quarter of the NFL season, nine analysts are averaging double-digit weekly scores, and another six are giving you over five points per week in Plus/Minus value. Let’s see what our analysts have to say about Week 5.
