Consensus Recap – Week 13
The Consensus had another solid week in Week 13. A 3.73 score positioned the Consensus in 13th out of the 21 experts that submitted selections.
Week 13 (Score: 3.73 / Rank 13th out of 21) – Another really good week for the Consensus in Week 13. Twelve of the 30 plays scored “A” or better including seven “A+” grades.
Head of the Class – Week 13
Each week I will highlight a few of the top experts for the week. Here are the experts that deserve a “gold star” for Week 13 based on their cumulative grades for all players they touted this week.
#1) HelloRookie (Score: 6.14) found the top-3 for the first time this season. Five of the seven plays scored an “A” or better with three “A+” scores.

#3B) Rotowire Optimizer (Score: 5.75) scored four “A+” grades out of their eight plays.
Head of the Class – Week 13 (By Position)
Sometimes there is just that one class that you excel in. In this section, I will highlight who the top experts were at each position for Week 13.
QB – NumberFire (10.00) played Malcolm Perry for an “A+” grade with their lone QB play.
RB – DailyRoto Optimizer (7.50) scored an “A+” and “A” grades with two plays.
WR – Sports Gambling Podcast (10.00) used Michael Pittman and his “A+” score to lead the WR position.
Study Time – Week 13
If we are going to give a gold star to the top experts of the week, we also need to determine which experts might need to put in some extra study time to pull up those grades. Here are the Week 13 experts that didn’t make the grade this week.
- FullTimeFantasy (Score: 2.55) scored “D” or worse with 11 of their 20 plays including seven failing grades.
- Daily Overlay – Single Pick (Score: 1.00) took a “D” with Shane Buechele in Week 13.
Extra Credit – Week 13
In this section, I will look to give some extra credit to experts that received an A+ grade for a player where they were the lone expert to recommend. Week 13 extra credit goes to the following:
A+ – There were no players selected by only one expert that scored an A+ grade.
Head of the Class – Season
