NFL week 6 game picks: Picking shiniest turd proving problematic

New, comments
Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Editor's Note: A new $2,000,000 one-week fantasy football league is open on FanDuel for Week 6. First place wins $150,000 on Sunday. Join now!

Week six is here which means the Raiders get to relax and watch the rest of the NFL teams play each other this Sunday. As usual, there are a mixture of great match-ups, blowouts, and crap-fests.

As it turns out, it's those crap-fests that are the hardest to predict. You just watch it, waiting for which team will implode the worst. There are a few this week including Chicago vs Detroit, Houston vs Jacksonville, Miami vs Tennessee, and Baltimore vs San Francisco. Not surprisingly, the staff is split on all those match-ups.

RDreamer was the best at hitting on those games last week, finishing with a 12-4 mark. I retook the lead in the overall by being the only one to predict the erratic Browns would take down the toothless Ravens.

Here are this week's picks:

The fans also had troubles with the shart games last week, with yet again the Browns/Browns game doing in every one of the top five entries. Here are those top five entries for the week with Montana Raider matching our staff's best. Nice work, guys.
