Weekly Picks: Upset Special in Oakland?

By Ernie Padaon

I used to put my weekly picks up on here, but as Bolts fans we don’t care about all those games (I started sucking with my picks too)! We usually have a game or two that we keep our eyes on and in the other games we are checking in on Megatron or other fantasy players to see if they are putting up stats.

This week, eyes are on our AFC West friends battling it out in Oakland. We are interested in how the Carson Palmer situation plays out and we all will be rooting for the Chiefs to beat down Oakland. The Raiders are a legit threat this year!

Carson is hopping off of his couch and the Raiders are expecting him to be game ready. He hasn’t built any chemistry with his receivers and his playbook will be limited. He basically is playing a pickup football game with a bunch of guys he just met. He will mostly be turning around and handing off the ball to Darren McFadden, but that can’t work all day long. OR maybe it can?!?

The Chiefs are coming off their BYE week and they are rested for the battle. Matt Cassel recently remembered that he has a great receiver in Dwayne Bowe too. They should be amped and ready to try and get back into the division race.

This game will probably be UGLY, full of penalties and a couple of fights are bound to bust loose. I am going to pick the upset special in this game! KC over dem Raiders by a field goal!
