The Knicks not Playing on Christmas is a Blessing

HELLOOOOO EVERYBODY! Welcome to 2019, and welcome back to Who to Watch! While you were away, the NFL playoff picture took form, Kirk Cousins played like absolute crap, and Antonio Brown became a BIG problem.  Nick Foles looks like he’s ready to defend his title, Mahomes capped off a stellar season by throwing 50 TDs and over 5000 yards, and Travis Kelce broke the record for most receiving yards by a tight end in one season… only to be broken less than 3 hours later by George Kittle.  James Harden is having an all-time great stretch, and Paul George is still playing amazing.  LeBron is hurt, the Celtics are still not right, and some Memphis Grizzlies’ are fighting with each other.

Alright.

One more thing: new to 2019, we’re replacing the “Good” and “Bad” categories with “Buy” and “Sell,” which we think gives us more range in the players we pick on a week-to-week basis.

Andy is still on vacation, but he’ll be back with a preview of the NFL Wild Card games tomorrow!

I love overreactions from the local networks like when NBC Sports Boston called Boston “Loserville,” completely forgetting the recent success all Boston teams have had. But fuck it, let’s get national (sorta) on these bitches and explore the different surprises around the league! Continue reading “Biggest Surprises 1/4 into the NBA Season”
