Fans First Week 4: "Fantasy, ATS, O/U, ML... You Name It" Thread

Matthew Emmons-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

With the Cowboys off until Monday Night, you don't have to feel like you're cheating on Dallas by paying close attention to the 13 games on the NFL Sunday schedule.

It seems like forever since Cowboys fans got to sit back and enjoy a Sunday full of football without having to worry about their team's fortunes. Week One, what a distant memory.

Week Four continues and tries to pick up where Week Three left off; barnburners and statement games galore. For fantasy footballers and gamblers alike; things were pretty interesting. In FF, the Top 6 Quarterbacks were Ben Roethlisberger, Andy Dalton, Jake Locker, Matt Schaub, Joe Flacco and Andrew Luck. The Top 5 running backs included Mikel LeShoure and Andre Brown.

For gamblers, woah... were things interesting. Three overtime games with two of them in contests that had a one-score spread. For some reason, it took Vegas until Week Four to realize that the Saints are a shipwreck; but if you listened to me last week you could have cashed in big.

Although I finished last week 9-7 against the spread, I feel like I'm hitting my stride. Of my seven losses, one was the Dolphins missing an overtime field goal and another was the horrific Green Bay-Seattle ending. Add in there I had the Colts straight up in a few parlays (Gabbert-Shorts 80 yard TD with 45 seconds left!?!?) and utopia avoided me last week.

Before we get into the Fantasy stuff, let's go to the Prognosticator's Big Board. A couple notes, since Dallas plays on Monday night. In 2012, the "Under" is now 7-0 on Weeknight games (Mon + Thur). Also, non-NFCE road teams are 1-4 straight up on weeknight road contests (Dallas, NY Giants both won on the road). That leads me to believe that Dallas should win a low scoring contest. Maybe, 20-16.

Started the week off right on Thursday night, going three-for-three.
