Staff Picks: Groupthink Edition

Chris Liss

Chris Liss is RotoWire's Managing Editor and Host of RotoWIre Fantasy Sports Today on Sirius XM radio.

Staff Picks is back for its 18th year. Back-to-back champion Jeff Erickson looks to win a third straight title, while Stopa and I try to bounce back from sub-.500 seasons (his was worse, thankfully.)

This week we have a whopping nine unanimous picks, a record, and this is the case despite the slate losing a game to a hurricane. It's either "great minds think alike" or an illustration of the herd mentality. I suppose we'll be judged on the results.

Not surprisingly, all five best bets are unanimous picks, and three writers have the same best bet, the Titans. Finally, it turns out DDD and I have the exact same picks, the first time I believe that has ever happened. It's hard to make the "great minds" case when you share one with DDD.
