Melvin Gordon Knighted in London and More Week 7 Bold Predictions

It’s time for another season of bad bets based in good process, better known as Bold Predictions. In this series, we’ll look at weekly match ups, using history as a contextual backdrop – as well as in-season trends – in order to unearth unexpected events that have a chance at coming true. Now we’re rolling. After a fruitless first four weeks, we’ve hit three predictions in the last two weeks. A recap:
  • Frankly, I never expected to hit the “Saquon Barkley scores 26.4 points and passes Kareem Hunt for the best six-game rookie RB start ever” pick. It was just another a sacrifice at the alter of interesting factoids, but wow. Barkley made an elite NFL run defense look like the Saskatchewan Roughriders practice squad.
  • I really thought I had a chance at John Brown outscoring Antonio Brown, but it is now confirmed that the latter is indeed the NFL’s best WR named Brown.
  • The Chiefs and Patriots came through on the promise of a big game, producing six top-12 positional finishes, as promised.
We’re now three for 18 on the year, hitting at 14.3 percent. Let’s stay hot and make it three weeks in a row with a win.
