If I flip my pick to 49ers and they win, will I win the week on tiebreak?

No, in that case, 3rookie would be 10-3. You & bunch of aothers would be 9-4.

Yeah

I’m tracking what would’ve happened if I’d kept the default option (which was the only other thing I was seriously considering).

I would’ve won last week, declared a JHFA for this week, which would’ve turned turned one loss into a win (Chargers) and two losses into ties (Chiefs, plus I would’ve squandered my extra COFP from last week’s win on the Bills turning a win into a loss, but the JHFA would’ve turned the loss into a tie), and I’d be 8-3-2 this week and 92-53-3 overall. I don’t think I would’ve won this week (I’d be the same as 9-4, but I think 3rookie is 11-2) and I’d still have JHFA on week 14 outstanding, and the same outstanding COFP that I actually have and more Steelers picks remaining.

Actual: 90-57-1, one COFP, fewer Steelers picks
If-Only: 92-53-3, one COFP, JHFA week 14, more Steelers picks

Congratulations to 3rookie for winning the Week 10 award, Random Poster's Lucky 7: If you win this award you will have seven points to distribute to improve the scores of your chosen teams. You may spread it among as many teams & weeks as you desire. Only whole-points may be used. (E.g., you chose team A to beat team B, team C to beat team D, team E to beat team F, and team G to beat team H. You added 3 points to team A and 2 points to team C and 1 point to team E and 1 point to team G. Team A loses 23-21, team C loses 23-20, team E loses 23-22, and team G wins 42-0. In your case team A would turn out to be a win, team C is still a loss, team E turns out to be a tie, and you wasted points on team G since it was a win regardless.) The results of this award affect only the award winner's results.

The default option will be to add all seven points to his week 11 Redskins over Jets pick. He may reject this choice and make his own before TNF's kickoff.

Additionally, he has won the "Change One Future Pick" award. The use of this award may be declared at anytime before the kickoff of the game it affects. It expires at kickoff of the final game of the season.

Finally, an additional award or two:

Pat on the Back™ award:
Way to go, silentassassin & bluecup129. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Bengals pick to the Ravens. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Salt in Your Wounds™ award:
Way to go, Bingboing. You bungled your COFP award by using it to change your Steelers pick to the Rams. You picked up an extra loss! Nice job!

Way to go, Ezekial Cumberland. You bungled your COFP award by using it to change your Dolphins pick to the Colts. You picked up an extra loss! Nice job!

Not Looking Too Good So Far™ award:
Way to go, twig93. You chose to use the The Arbitrary Award on the Steelers...changing your Steelers pick to the Rams this week. You picked up another extra loss! We'll see how it all shakes out, but, in the meantime, Nice job!

Here are the week 10 standings:
