The guy is 70% this year with NFL picks. You would think he would have to come back down to earth? Just a thought. It's not personal it's just law of averages.

so fade him good luck.

He is a good capper bottom line.If you listen to his comments his reasoning is solid.

Hey he may be the greatest capper ever but 70% is pretty damn good. Just looking for an edge.

Not smart. People hit 70% over 50 plays all the time. Now if you said he hit 70% over a much larger span, I'd say it's time to fade. But no averages tell you that someone hitting 70% over 50 plays must crash back down to earth anytime soon. I've hit 70% of my posted sides this year, but that doesn't mean start fading me. I know I won't hit it over say 5-10 seasons, but it can certainly be done in 1 season.

so you figure fading a guy clippin at 70% or whatever, thinking he's 'do' to come back to earth? hmm i don't know about that theory man. i don't fade or follow, but i sure's the hell wouldn't fade someone who is firing at 70%

even if the guy comes back to earth in the second half, and winds up say 60% you fade every pick, you still lose

I was hoping he would return to 50. Therefore he would need to hit at a 30% clip when faded is good for the fader. Anyway doesn't matter just wanted to get some opinions. I'm sure I won't do it

I wouldn't fade for that reason either sounds crazy to me, sometimes your just dialed in on a season or what not & next season or sport ya come back down. Just my opinion.

Um why are we here on covers then? If the guy is so superior shouldn't everyone on covers be telling us to follow him. Hmmm
