After hovering around the .500 mark for the first three weeks of the season, I finally had the week I was looking for. I went 10-3 ATS with all of my picks this week, and 3-2 ATS with my recommended bets. In weeks like this I wish I had bet on all the games, but I know that that’s a losing strategy in the long run.

With scab referees destroying at least one game (possibly two), it seems as though the NFL has finally grown tired of dangerous incompetence and is poised to reach an agreement with the NFLRA. This means that soon we could be screaming and cursing our voices hoarse at unionized officials. Officials who are not only qualified and have a proper grasp on the basic rules and nuances of professional football, but ones who don’t need to have half-hour long conferences each time they need to make a simple holding call.

The only thing that hasn’t changed this week is our collective lust for fantasy football. As always, I’ve collected the rankings of Michael Fabiano/Adam Rank of NFL.com and Dave Richard/Jamey Eisenberg of CBSSPORTS.com and combined them into five convenient charts.
