Our local “experts” are turning in BOLD picks that may just be too bold. Last week, Kevin was the closest with his prediction of Phillip Lindsay reaching the 125 yard mark with his first game owning the backfield due to Freeman being out with an ankle injury. Lindsay fell just shy of this with reaching 112 yards.

Here are our local experts BOLD PREDICTIONS for week 9 of the 2018 NFL Season:

Sergio Oliveri of Oliveri Graphics
“Rams get their first L vs Saints”

Kevin Cesario of C&C Property Management
“Raiders & 9ers game ends in a 4th quarter comeback. AKA winning team trails at least 1 point in the 4th quarter”

Sam Kabert of ValueBP Marketing Group
“Demaryius Thomas scores a TD in his debut game as a Texan”

Anthony Daoud of Amy’s
“Browns beat KC in Baker’s best game as a pro”

Ik Jagait of Playground Pictures
“Rodgers beats Brady (in fantasy and in real life)”


Sergio: 3
Andrew: 1
Sam: 1
Daoud: .5
Kevin: 0
Palvinder: 0
Ik: Negative 1


The guys at WhatUp Silicon Valley are (fantasy) football addicts. In fact we’ve been known to credit the birth of the WhatUp Silicon Valley Podcast Network to fantasy football.

The concept of our initial podcast (now known as the “Sam & Serg Show“) came about after the 2016 NFL season had finished. Sam, a daily listener to the “Pro Football Focus” show on SiriusXM radio(and avid fantasy football listener in general), had nothing to listen to since the season was over. Searching for other podcasts, Sam noticed Silicon Valley was lacking a podcast that covered the South Bay professionals, events and overall landscape and future of the South Bay. Sam & Sergio, already good friends from the Silicon Valley Young Professionals, put their heads together and decided to create their own podcast. Now back to football…

Every Thursday of the 2018 season, we’ll be releasing our BOLD PREDICTIONS for that week. The predictions are from the guys behind the podcast and our network. If you’d like to be included in the BOLD PREDICTIONS, just send us a note and we’ll include your call in next week’s post!
