Dollar Bets – 2018 Season

Dollar Bets are honor bets between the Backups where the winner receives exactly $1. Yeah, pretty self explanatory.

  1. Alex bets Ben and Jim that Dante Pettis will finish as a top-30 fantasy WR this season. (Alex – “I’m so screwed on this one.”) Jim and Ben win the dollar!
  2. Alex bets Ben that Alshon Jeffery will outproduce Nelson Agholor this year despite Jeffery’s offseason shoulder surgery. Alex wins the dollar!
  3. Ben bets Alex that Philip Rivers will be a top 5 QB play for week 2. RESULT: Rivers is a QB1 for week 2 but not a top 5 QB. Alex wins the dollar!
  4. Alex bets Jim that Gio Bernard finishes as an RB2 or better in week 3. RESULT: Gio Bernard finishes as a high-end RB2. Alex wins the dollar!
  5. Ben bets Alex that Baker Mayfield finishes as a top-12 QB in week 8. Baker Mayfield finishes outside the top 12. Alex wins the dollar!
  6. Jim bets Alex that Eric Ebron will outscore Jack Doyle from week 11 through the rest of the season. Doyle is out for the season with a shoulder injury, Jim wins the dollar!
  7. Alex bets Ben that Dante Pettis finishes top-30 in week 16. Dante Pettis gets injured in the 1st quarter, Ben wins the dollar!
