Rallied back in week four after back to back stinkers and finished with a 9-6 record, putting me at 30-33 for the year. My Seahawks are on a bye but it’s going to be a fun filled week as I will be playing my good friend Quig in Fantasy.
Also facing off in that same league will be Quig’s roomate Cube and Double B himself. Naturally we will all be watching redzone together all damn day. Let the shit talking begin.

Week 5 at em.

Chicago Bears (1-3) at Indianapolis Colts (1-3)
(-4.5) (0/U 47.5)

A disappointing start to the season for both of these teams, but I do believe the Colts have a slightly more rounded squad and will pull off the w here.

Hawk’s 2016 NFL Picks: Week 1

Picking winners in week 1 is a crap shoot. You just never know what good teams from last year will fall apart this and what bad team will step it up and become playoff contenders. But I am committed again this year so let’s get right to it.
 
Green Bay Packers at Jacksonville Jaguars
(+4.5) (O/U 48.0)
 
Everyone always like picking the Packers. They have a high powered offense with Aaron Rodgers, and Jordy Nelson is back after missing all of last season.
But you know who else has a high powered offense? This Jaguars team. Blake Bortles threw for 4428 yards and 35 TD’s last year. Mainly to his two elite receivers Allen Robinson (1,400 yards, 14 Td’s) and Allen Hurns, ( 1,031 yards, 10 Tds) their defense needs work but they can keep up with the Packers high paced offense.
Pick: Jaguars

Jay Cutler became something of a joke last season, He threw for 3812 yards and 28 Td’s but led the league with 24 turnovers.(18 picks, 6 fumbles). I don’t know those numbers will get much better in 2015 after Chicago traded Brandon Marshall to the Jets. . Cutler and Marshall had a rapport few QB-Receivers in the league do after playing together for 6 years, 3 of those at Denver from 2006-2008 and 3 together at Chicago from 2012-2014.
Marshall played through an ankle injury most of 2014 but suffered broken ribs and an injured lung and missed the final 3 games of the season. Because of these injuries  Marshall failed to top 80 catches and 1000 yards for the first time since 2006.
This loss will make 4th year player Alshon Jeffrey the unquestioned #1 target for Cutler. Jeffrey is a turning into a fine player. He had 85 catches for 1133 yards and 10 TD’s in 2014 and 89 catches for 1,421 yards and 7 TDs in 2012. With their first round pick, 7th overall the Bears selected West Virginia standout Receiver Kevin White whom was considered one of the top receivers in the draft and were hoping he would become the #2 receiver for them but unfortunately he may miss the season with a stress fracture in his shin.
Matt Forte will once again be the go to back for Chicago. Forte has been one of the best in the business for his entire 7 year career averaging 1,100 yards and 6 Td’s a season. He is a hell of a receiver too he was fantasy gold last season, not only piling up 1038 yards and 6 Td’s but catching 102 balls, an NFL running back record, for 808 yards and 4 Td’s.  Chicago added RB’s Jacquizz Rodgers from Atlanta in free agency and drafted Jeremey Langford but I don’t expect either player to take many reps from him.
