As a weekly tradition here at FiveThirtyEight, we shout out the best performances among everyone who made picks in our forecasting game. Congratulations are in order to Jesse James Johnson, who led all identified readers in Week 16 with 171.0 points, and to Craig B Anderson, who sits atop the full-season contest with 941.2 points.

Head over and lock in your picks for next week to show FiveThirtyEight’s Elo model how it’s done. And it’s not too late to create a custom leaderboard and invite friends to your competition; private leaderboards can start counting points at any week of the season you choose.
