110 thoughts on “2014 NFL Expert Picks

    1. Hi patman – Dave switched a couple of picks. We picked it up on Sunday morning in a quick sweep. Unfortunately there’s very little we can do about it when a writer changes picks, however in the future we may keep a running log of pick changes on our forum or on a blog post.

  1. Love the site and use it a lot for my own pick ‘em purposes. I’m quite the stat head myself so if you guys ever need any help expanding stuff I’m always game.

    A few quick suggestions…
    1. Expanding the number of sources you draw from. Not that it isn’t already a lot, and you have all the big industry guns covered, but there’s lots of other pretty well-known fantasy sites that do picks and projections (Football Guys, The Huddle, 4-for-4, etc.) that it’d be cool to see how they stack up against everyone else.
    2. For those that predict actual final scores, maybe have a separate page that includes those numbers. Could be kind of helpful for those in pools where you pick against the spread or even confidence point pools.
    3. A way to tailor which expert you want to see. Maybe if each had a box by their name that you could check and uncheck so that, if say, I wanted only to see the twelve or thirteen specific guys I’ve come to trust most, I can filter out the others and get new percentages (and/or scores) specifically for the people I select.
    4. I think maybe you already mentioned this before, but maybe team specific experts. Which folks are the best picking Steelers games vs. picking Raiders games, etc.

    I’ll try and add more as I come up with them. Anyway, keep up the great work. Really dig the site already as is!

    1. Hi sorry we haven’t had a chance to reply yet – yes to all of the above of course. We’ve already thought of a ‘filter’ box to show experts not only based on name, but at some point perhaps based on their percentage when picking only the teams you specify, or based on certain thresholds %-wise.

      In terms of adding more experts, it can certainly be done, albeit not as easily as before the season started – and the sooner the better – so I will make a forum thread asking for suggestions on this.

      In terms of scores I think that may have to wait for now, but it can be added to a ‘desirable’ list. Ideally we would also be able to use those scores to automatically calculate ATS win %…

      Thanks for suggestions. They’re brilliant and very very helpful. I’m going to write a dev blog post recapping what we’ve changed in the last week or so, and then outlining our plans for the future.

  2. I absolutely love the work you guys are doing! This is my one-stop shop for picks.

    Thy season picking percentages are awesome, especially because you put the best pickers at the top. As sort of a stats nerd, it would be really cool to see some more statistics analysis implemented.

    For example, before the game you could show stats for each game. Take the steelers vs ravens game for example. If this was week 15, some of the guys at the bottom (percentage wise) might be picking really poorly in hope of an upset. Similarly, some of the good pickers might be picking very conservatively. It’d be interesting to see how the different pickers (high % vs low %) pick each game. This wouldn’t mean much at the beginning of the season, but after 5 games some interesting trends might start occurring.

    Sorry for the really long example but I hope you guys can add some more statistical analysis later on. The site is really awesome, keep up the great work.

    1. Yeah this is the type of more advanced stuff we’re looking at as the season progresses. We do general previews in the ‘blog’ (for example: this post last night ) that pull out some key stats, but automating them may be a different story.

      We are looking at creating (eventually) a system that will be able to do more advanced analysis though, for example being able to narrow the experts based on their picking % for each team etc. These type of functions might be some way off, but we have the ideas and in the meantime we’ll look at what else can be added.

      Glad you like the site though. Good stuff.

    1. No worries Woodbridge, our pleasure.

      Yep, this is something we’ll make sure we get in. We’ll look at what can be added to the tables over the weekend.

      Also this applies to anyone with suggestions for the site – we’re going to be putting together a priority list of things to be added this season. If you have any suggestions, please leave us a comment, head over to the forum or drop us an email.
