Week 10 IDP Waiver Wire Pickups - PERFORMANCE RESULTS

I think an important part of being a prognosticator/advice giver is being open about your accuracy. We aren't future tellers and, therefore, we will not get every prediction correct. However, a good IDP prognosticator should be right more than they are wrong, otherwise what's the point?

With this being said, I will release a follow-up column every week to my "Weekly IDP Waiver Wire Pickups" column. In this column, I will review the players I recommended for the week and give you their actual performance. I will then break down how accurate I was on all my suggestions. The scoring system is as follows:

Green = Accurate Prediction (+1 point)
Golden Yellow = Neutral Prediction (0 points)
Red - Inaccurate Prediction (-1 point)

My goal and standard will be to finish each and every week with a total score of +2 or higher.

1. Any starting DL from the Dallas Cowboys (especially NT Jay Ratliff) - (Actual Performance: Not Nearly What I Expected)

2. RDT Jonathan Babineaux - (Actual Performance: 2-0-0)

3. RDE Greg "Stylez" White - (Actual Performance: *DNP Because of Injury*)

4. RDE Will Smith (not the Fresh Prince of Bel-Air Will Smith) - (Actual Performance: 2-0-1 FF)

1. MLB Paul Posluszny- (Actual Performance: 10-2-0)

2. MLB Larry Foote - (Actual Performance: 3-0-0)

3. MLB Stephen Tulloch - (Actual Performance: 2-0-1)

4. MLB Jonathan Vilma - (Actual Performance: 6-2-0)

1. FS Oshiomogho Atogwe - (Actual Performance: 5-0-0 INT, FF, PD)

2. SS Erik Coleman - (Actual Performance: 7-4-0)

3. FS Reggie Nelson - (Actual Performance: 3-0-0)

4. SS Chris Harris - (Actual Performance: 3-2-0)

After calculating this week's total points, I finished with a score of +2 (6 positives, 4 negatives, 2 neutrals). I consider this a fairly solid week. To think of it another way, I was correct on 60% of my predictions. When looking within each position, it was easy to see that I had a very high success rate with LB's and DB's. However, the success rate for DL wasn't what I expected.

Moving forward to next week, I will put more of my research time into the DL position.

***NOTE: Please use a different display name than "Anonymous" when asking advice questions. It gets difficult to discern who I am answering when multiple people post under the same name.

Also, when asking for weekly matchup advice please mention the weekly opponent for each player you are listing. This helps me answer questions more quickly.
In addition, always list your scoring system as my advice will differ depending on the type of system being used.

Lastly, please don't duplicate the same exact post on other pages. We get notified of all comments that are posted and we will make sure to answer questions as quickly as we can. Posting the same question multiple times on different pages just slows the whole process down for everyone.
