Will Brinson led the pack in Week 10 with a 10-4 record and stellar $1.34 Yield, while Les Carpenter had an awful showing (4-10, $0.45 Yield). Brinson was one of only three pundits to pick the Panthers over the 49ers—the others being Tom Jackson and Jason La Canfora—and was also one of the few to pick the Vikings (over the Redskins) and Ravens (over the Bengals), which is surprising given that both were only very slightly underdogs according to Vegas. The pundits whiffed entirely on the Rams/Colts and Jaguars/Titans. For the full season, Ron Jaworski reclaimed the top spot over Keyshawn Johnson, while Adam Schefter remains in last place.

The Week 11 picks are starting to roll in: will the Saints defeat the 49ers and Broncos defeat the Chiefs, as most of the early predictions are suggesting? Make your own Week 11 picks now in our NFL section using the 'Vote Now' buttons.
