2017 NFL Winner-Takes-All Picks: Week 5
It was another tough contest for the fourth week of the WTA NFL picks.
In the fourth week of the 2017 NFL season – and for the second straight week – the Winner-Takes-All contest saw no perfect records from contestants. And also for the second straight week, only two contestants were able to go 4-1: @boatsports90 and @hashclouds. In the first tiebreaker, @boatsports90 took home the win by choosing a combined score of 50 points for the Monday night game between the Redskins and Chiefs, which ended in a 29-20 Chiefs victory. The selected point total by @hashcloud was 44.
The winnings for this week’s contest will be sent to @boatsports90 after last week’s post closes later today.
These are the current leaders based on contestants who have participated in each of the first four weeks of the season.

Winner-Takes-All: Week 5
The game selections for Week 5 of the Winner-Takes-All contest are listed below. Choose your game winners and point totals for each of the Sunday night and Monday night games (in bold and italics). Game schedules are from NFL.com.
Sunday, October 8th
Monday, October 9th
1 – Contestants must choose one winner for each of the selected games. Contestants can only enter one weekly submission per account. Submissions must be entered prior to the first scheduled game time. LATE SUBMISSIONS OR EDITS MADE TO SUBMISSIONS AFTER THE START OF THE FIRST GAME WILL BE DISQUALIFIED FROM THE CONTEST – NO EXCEPTIONS.
2 – Contestants must choose point totals for each of the Monday and Sunday night games. If there are two or more contestants with the same amount of correct picks for the week, then the contestant closest to the game point totals will be the winner. Monday night games will be the first tie-breaker and Sunday night games will be the second tie-breaker. (For the weeks when there are not one game being played on each night, special tie-break rules will be mentioned and applied.) If contestants are still tied after the tie-breakers have been applied, then the contestant who submitted their picks first will be the winner.
3 – The weekly Winner-Takes-All records of contestants will accumulate throughout the regular season to determine a WTA season winner. TO BE ELIGIBLE FOR THE SEASON CONTEST, CONTESTANTS MUST PARTICIPATE IN A MINIMUM OF SEVEN (7) WEEKLY WTA CONTESTS. Contestants that have four (4) or more identical selections (picks and points) of other users will not be eligible for the season contest. The three (3) contestants with the best season records will share the season pot, divided as follows:
At the end of the regular season, I will announce a potential playoff contest for a minimum of 8 top contestants throughout the season. The potential playoff format and rules have not been determined at this time, so watch for future updates.
Post Rewards and Payouts
The full SBD rewards from each of the weekly posts will be dedicated to the weekly contest payouts, seasonal payouts, and my fantasy sports development fund. These rewards will be divided as follows:
