Weeklypickem.fantasy.nfl.com, espn.go.com and cbssports.com post their own weekly NFL picks every football season. Sport magazines such as Sports Illustrated also post weekly NFL picks, but do so monthly due to their printing schedules.
NFL picks are an organization's or individual's opinion on which teams will win their games during a given week. These picks influence players of fantasy football in their decisions, and in some cases define a clear underdog. Picks from major websites are typically based on more than just opinion; they are based on sabermetrics, a manner of advanced statistics that can correct for luck and determine true team skill.
