Explanations

  • I had to drop Seattle a tier. They just don’t have enough around Russel Westbrook to justify them being in the Good tier.
  • Tennessee started the year 5-0 with a +38 point differential but outside a 26 point blowout of Buffalo they only had a +12 point differential against Denver, Jacksonville, Minnesota, and Houston. They were barley getting by bad teams and it’s caught up to them in the last 4 weeks.
  • I’m very close to moving up Arizona up a tier.
  • Atlanta has always been a good bad team. 4 of their first seven loses were by less than 7– including a last second touchdown pass by Detroit. Yes, they have won 3 of their last four. I think they might have turned a corner.
