NFL Prediction League 2012
Level1Death wins the week with a record of 13-3 and superchunk comes in second with 12-4. Six people go 11-5, with Kenology, chocoloco and JWeinCom winning the tie-breaking procedure for third, fourth and fifth place, respectively. It was a good week overall with 17 out of 22 people predicting 10 or more games correctly and nobody posting a negative record.
I do not guarantee that everything will be flawless, so please check your stats (weekly predictions, results and standings). If you notice any errors, let me know.
In a lackluster week that saw only six people who achieved a positive record, zuvuyeay (10-6) wins the tie-breaker against Train wreck (10-6) for first place. Kenology (10-6) finishes in third, just like last week. noname2200 (9-7) comes in fourth and chocoloco (9-7) takes the fifth spot. Six people failed to submit the majority of their predictions or any predictions at all. Is the league starting to fall apart already or is it just the Wii U hype that made people forget about football for a week?
In the overall standings, Kenology (21-11) takes the lead, barely ahead of zuvuyeay, Train wreck and chocoloco (all 20-12). The biggest gain goes to noname2200 (up 9 spots, from #18 to #9) while JWeinCom experiences the biggest drop (down 14, from #5 to #19).
Another bad week in the prediction league, this time we have only four people with a positive record. Mendicate Bias (9-7) wins the week by being the only one to call a Green Bay loss on Monday Night Football. shakarak (9-7), outlawauron (9-7) and Level1Death (9-7) follow in #2 through #4 while chocoloco sneaks into the top 5 with an 8-8 record.
Kenology (29-19) maintains his lead by one game in the overall standings, ahead of Level1Death and chocoloco (both 28-20). Train wreck (27-21) remains within striking distance. Mendicate Bias is also the winner of the week in the overall standings (up 7, from #12 to #5) while superchunk goes into the opposite direction (down 7, from #8 to #15).
The real referees are back and the results in the prediction league improved considerably, compared to the last two weeks. We had 18 people with a positive record. In a close finish, RolStoppable comes out on top this week, followed by Kenology and NinjaBlade360 (all 14-1). insomniac17 (13-2) clinches the fourth spot and BoneArk (12-3) takes the fifth.
In the overall standings, Kenology (43-20) remains the leader and extends his lead to four games. RolStoppable (39-24), chocoloco (38-25) and insomniac17 (38-25) are his biggest rivals at the moment. The big winner of the week is NinjaBlade360 (up 8, from #18 to #10) while amp316 loses the most positions (down 5, from #8 to #13).
Newcomer Zelhawks37 wins the week with a record of 11-3, pulling ahead of superchunk, Mendicate Bias and outlawauron in the tie-breaking procedure. Another seven people went 10-4 and it's zuvuyeay who takes the fifth spot overall, because he was the only guy in this group who didn't predict a blowout in the Monday Night game. Everyone finished this week with a positive record. Nice.
Nothing new at the top of the overall standings. Kenology (52-25) still leads by four games. His biggest rivals have shuffled positions though. Mendicate Bias and insomniac17 are both 48-29 while RolStoppable and chocoloco are both 47-28. The biggest winners of the week were Mendicate Bias (up 4, from #6 to #2) and Zelhawks37 (up 4, from #25 to #21) who passed the four inactive players that are not expected to return. The losers of the week were Level1Death (down 3, from #5 to #8) and shakarak (down 3, from #9 to #12).
Zelhawks37 (10-4) wins the second week in a row. BoneArk and hatmoza (both 8-6) are the only other people with a positive record this week. The fourth and fifth spot go to RolStoppable and arcane_chaos (both 7-7). Everyone else has a negative record, so the prediction league has hit a new low. We can't even blame the referees anymore.
Kenology (58-33) has now been the leader for five consecutive weeks and he is still four games ahead. RolStoppable (54-37) is in second place, three players have a record of 53-38: Mendicate Bias, BoneArk and insomniac17. The huge winner of the week is BoneArk who moved up 7 spots (from #11 to #4) while Level1Death slides down 5 positions (from #8 to #13).
What a rebound from last week. Everyone attained a positive record in Week 7. Not only that, but two people were perfect. zuvuyeay and insomniac17 (both 13-0) edged out arcane_chaos, noname2200 and RolStoppable (all 12-1). Another three people with a record of 12-1 missed the top 5. This is some serious competition.
Kenology's (68-36) lead in the overall standings shrinks to two games, because both RolStoppable and insomniac (both 66-38) made excellent picks in Week 7. zuvuyeay (65-39) also closed the gap with a strong performance while arcane_chaos gained the most positions this week (up 3, from #11 to #8). The loser of the week is Train wreck who went down 6 spots (from #8 to #14).
outlawauron wins the tie-breaking procedure against SaviorX and insomniac17 (all 11-3) in a week with mixed results. Rank 4 and 5 go to amp316 and arcane_chaos (both 10-4), respectively.
We have a new leader in the overall standings! insomniac17 (77-41) is now slightly ahead of Kenology (76-42), zuvuyeay and RolStoppable (both 74-44) round out the top 4. There are now only two active players left who have yet to record a top 5 position in the single week results: ljigga and Blacksaber. The player who gained the most positions this week is Level1Death (up 4, from #15 to #11), the player who lost the most ground is BoneArk (down 7, from #7 to #14).
insomniac17 comes out on top with a record of 13-1. Four people went 12-2 and they are ranked in the following order: RolStoppable, zuvuyeay, BoneArk, amp316. Overall, we had a great week. Even the lowest ranked players achieved a record of 9-5.
At the season's halfway mark, insomniac17 (90-42) now leads by four games. #2 through #10 to give a more complete picture than usual: zuvuyeay and RolStoppable (both 86-46), Kenology (85-47), amp316 (84-48), arcane_chaos (83-49), Mendicate Bias and chocoloco (both 81-51), noname2200 and ljigga (both 80-52). No big changes in positions this week, three people went up two spots: amp316 (from #7 to #5), BoneArk (from #14 to #12) and shakarak (from #17 to #15). Four people lost two positions: Kenology (from #2 to #4), chocoloco (from #6 to #8), NinjaBlade360 (from #12 to #14) and Train wreck (from #15 to #17).
superchunk (10-4) walks away with the victory in a week with unspectacular results. Ranks 2 to 4 go to insomniac17, BoneArk and chocoloco (all 10-4), respectively. Seven players finish the week with a record of 9-5 and it's SaviorX who wins the tie-breaking procedure to snatch a valuable prediction point.
In the overall standings, insomniac17 (100-46) is the first player to hit the 100 games milestone. He also extended his lead to five games. RolStoppable (95-51) and Kenology (94-52) are in second and third place, respectively. The winners of the week are chocoloco (up 2, from #8 to #6) and BoneArk (up 2, from #12 to #10). The losers of the week are zuvuyeay (down 2, from #2 to #4), arcane_chaos (down 2, from #6 to #8) and ljigga (down 2, from #10 to #12).
Five people attained a 13-1 record: hatmoza, amp316, zuvuyeay, SaviorX and superchunk. 18 people made 10 or more correct picks this week. The bye weeks in the NFL are behind us now, so we'll have a full 16 games in each of the remaining weeks.
insomniac17's (111-49) lead shrinks to four games. RolStoppable (107-53), zuvuyeay (106-54), Kenology (106-54) and amp316 (105-55) round out the top 5. The winner of the week is superchunk who moved up 5 spots (from #13 to #8). The loser of the week is arcane_chaos who is down 8 spots (from #8 to #16).
hatmoza (14-2) wins again. ljigga (13-3) wins the tie-breaker against shakarak (13-3) for second place. Five people go 12-4, #4 and #5 go to arcane_chaos and SaviorX, respectively.
insomniac17's (121-55) lead on RolStoppable (118-58) shrinks by another game. The following four people have a record of 115-61: zuvuyeay, Kenology, amp316 and chocoloco. ljigga is the winner of the week (up 3, from #12 to #9) while BoneArk and Mendicate Bias both lose two positions, down from #9 to #11 and down from #10 to #12, respectively.
amp316 (11-5) is the winner in a week with modest results. hatmoza and BoneArk (both 11-5) finish in second and third place while rank 4 and 5 go to NinjaBlade360 and Zelhawks37 (both 10-6), respectively.
insomniac17 (131-61) extends his lead to five games again while amp316 and RolStoppable are now exactly tied for second place (both 126-66). zuvuyeay and chocoloco (both 125-67) round out the top 5. The winner of the week is amp316 (up 3, from #5 to #2), the losers of the week are Kenology (down 2, from #4 to #6), noname2200 (down 2, from #7 to #9), MendicateBias (down 2, from #12 to #14) and Train wreck (down 2, from #18 to #20). The latter has also been officially eliminated from the playoff race. Speaking of which, hatmoza has closed the gap to #16 to only three games. An exciting final quarter of the season lies ahead.
Another week with modest results. Mendicate Bias (12-4) finishes ahead of hatmoza, insomniac17, Level1Death (all 11-5) and Blacksaber (10-6). The latter finally accomplished a top 5 spot and is the last active player to do so.
In the overall standings, everything is pointing towards a victory for insomniac17 (142-66) who now leads amp316 (135-73) by seven games. zuvuyeay and RolStoppable are 134-74, Kenology and chocoloco have a record of 132-76. The winner of the week is Level1Death (up 4, from #11 to #7). The losers are RolStoppable (down 2, from #2 to #4), superchunk (down 2, from #7 to #9) and shakarak (down 2, from #15 to #17).
superchunk (13-3) beats chocoloco (12-4), noname2200 (12-4), NinjaBlade360 (11-5) and ljigga (10-6).
insomniac17 (152-72) adds another game to his lead, he is now eight games ahead of RolStoppable and chocoloco (both 144-80). Rank 2-10 are within four games, so even if there won't be a change at the very top, there's probably going to be a lot of position shuffling right below it in the final two weeks. The winner of the week is superchunk (up 4, from #9 to #5), the loser of the week is zuvuyeay (down 3, from #3 to #6).
NinjaBlade360 wins the tie-breaker against insomniac17 (both 14-2) for first place. BoneArk (13-3) comes in third while eight people go 12-4 for the week. #4 and #5 go to Mendicate Bias and chocoloco, respectively. For the first time in a while, everyone achieved a positive record.
insomniac17 (166-74) has the win pretty much locked up with a 10 game lead, but the playoff seeding among the top 10 is anything but clear. #2-10 are still within 4 games, #3-10 are even within 2 games now. chocoloco (156-84, #2) holds the advantage while superchunk, amp316 and RolStoppable (all 154-86) are also well positioned for the final week of the regular season. The winners of Week 16 are superchunk (up 2, from #5 to #3), NinjaBlade360 (up 2, from #11 to #9) and BoneArk (up 2, from #13 to #11). The losers are RolStoppable (down 2, from #2 to #4) and ljigga (down 2, from #10 to #12).
chocoloco (13-3) wins the tie-breaker against BoneArk (13- 3) and thus the week. Five people attained a record of 12-4 and #3-5 go to NinjaBlade360, zuvuyeay and Level1Death.
At the end of the season, the top 5 in the prediction league are:
1. insomniac17 (177-79)
2. chocoloco (169-87)
3. superchunk (166-90)
4. amp316 (166-90)
