This season has been unimaginable to foretell in so some ways, and that gave us one of the unimaginable tales in skilled picks this yr. Ricky O’Donnell hasn’t had the perfect season total — he’s been in final place 3 times this yr, and suffered quite a lot of anti-Bears tweets within the course of. Nonetheless, in Week 11 he rose from the ashes like a phoenix to dominate with an influence beforehand unseen.
Ricky principally channelled his beloved Justin Fields, that’s my working principle, and put in a 12-2 picks document to not solely win the week, however flip in the perfect single-week document of anybody this yr. It wasn’t remotely shut both, with second place being 8-6. Which means he will get to author tweets for Mark Schofield and yours actually, as we tied for final — and I’ll add these in when Ricky is finished touring for the vacations and has settled on how he desires to humiliate us.
