Week 4 – Third and Short Fantasy Podcast

Our Turf Football Senior Editor
Official Chicago Bears Reporter

by Wanda Wiedman & Cleveland Kate // @WandaW63  & @ClvlndK8

While the NFL shook up the world with its #TakeAKnee, we have survived week 3 with quite a few upsets but managed to stay true to our picks.

Last week Kate suggested that sitting the Pittsburgh Steelers defense against the Chicago Bears offense would be ideal and boy, was she right! But if you took heed to our suggestions when we said to start Chris Thompson and sit  Jeremy Maclin.…you’re welcome.

So let’s get started with this week’s fantasy Starts!

Fantasy Football Update Week 3

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

The conundrum this past weekend in the NFL made for some new names popping up in this week’s article.

Highlights from each league

Originals League: What’s COOKin Good Looking had a spectacular week topping the league with 167.30 points. QB Tom Brady (Patriots) scored her a cool 56.80 points, along with teammate WR Brandin Cooks (Patriots) scoring 30+ points. In second place is Bongs Over Brussels Sprouts with 160.63 points. Her top performers being QB Kirk Cousins (Redskins) 47.53 points and RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) 29.30 points.

>> LEADER: Bongs Over Brussels Sprouts (3-0)

Female Free #1: Pulling out a win this week is Liz’s Primo Team with 154.12 points. Adding up the points quickly for me included Brandin Cooks, plus three other players each with 20+ points. Halifax Hurricanes is next with 133.92 points. Offensive threats QB Russell Wilson and WR Doug Baldwin from the Seattle Seahawks combined to give her 55 points. WR Sammy Watkins (new LA Rams acquisition) provided 25.60 points.

>> LEADER: Gpodawund (3-0)

Female Free #2: This was a close battle. The top two teams went head-to-head this week with BrownLee squeezing out a win by a mere .56 of a point. This keeps her in the lead over Team TriSARAHtops.

>> LEADER: BrownLee (3-0)

So You Want To Win In Fantasy, Huh?

Fantasy football predictions are not as easy as we think, are they?

By Emily Chae // @emgchae

This year I have three fantasy teams, two where I play with strangers and one with former co-workers. Regardless of PPR or standard league, there are some players being overlooked this season. This week we will review who were the top dogs on my teams and sleeper picks for week 3.

The off-season was a mess of trades, cuts and new recruits.  This can make fantasy picks a bit tricky this year.   Also, knowing who is injured is critical in a fantasy match up.  Team injuries are always updated here.

Fantasy Football Update Week 2

Fantasy Football Reporter

By Liz Panucci // @PanucciLiz

Fantasy football predictions are not as easy as we think, are they?

Highlights from each league

Originals League: SUH and a Half Men topped the league with 156.07 fantasy points. She had a tough battle with FitzOn (that’s me) who came in 2nd with 143.53 points. SUH’s top point scorers were QB Philip Rivers (Chargers) with 31.07 and RB C.J. Anderson (Broncos) with 30.40.

>> NEW LEADER: Bongs over Brussels Sprouts

Female Free #1: With another league win, Gpodawund scored 121.98 points in week 2 of fantasy football. Her top performer was RB Ty Montgomery (Packers) scoring 26.00 points. Most of us could have had a win with what was left on her bench. Coming in second place this week is Andria’s Legit Team, 115.32. RB Todd Gurley II (Rams) and WR Mike Evans (Buccaneers) scored 25.10 and 18.80 points, respectively to help her grab a win.

>> LEADER: Gpodawund

Female Free #2: A commanding win was had by BrownLee in this league, scoring 137.40 fantasy points. Kareem Hunt was her top point scorer with TE Rob Gronkowski (Patriots) racking up 20.60 points until sidelined due to injury. Football n Heels finished second place this week, with 112.98 points. Tom Brady topped her team. Sitting on the bench was WR Martavis Bryant (Steelers) with 17.30 points. Might see him moving up the ranks for week 3.

> LEADER: BrownLee

Fantasy Football Reporter

Week 1 is in the books.

 

Highlights from each league

Originals League: KikoWalk had an amazing 161.07 points with a surprising 41 of them coming from the Jacksonville Jaguars defense. Drago Unchained earned second spot with a big game from rookie RB Leonard Fournette, also from the Jaguars. Kareem Hunt‘s amazing 47.6 stats gave Bongs over Brussel Sprouts a comfortable third place finish.

Female Free #1: Tops in our league was Gpodawund with 140.84 points. Again, RB Kareem Hunt from the Kansas City Chiefs helped her win with his 43.1 point day. Golden Tate Bridge was a close second. Her top scorers being the LA Rams defense with 28 points.

Female Free #2: BrownLee produced an unbelievable 170.08 points in Week 1! She has an incredible overall team, complete with Kareem Hunt, who was outstanding. Tough to compete against that.

Female BuyIn: Defending champ, The McGibblets, is tops in the league after Week 1 with 147.42 points. Her ‘Chiefsiest’ performer was Kansas City Chiefs WR Tyreek Hill with 23.3 points. The irony here is that on her bench, from the same team, is Kareem Hunt!!

Coed BuyIn: Scoring in at 134.98 points, and in first place, is Pink Panthers. Thanks to Kareem Hunt and QB Derek Carr, she remained at the top of the pack in the first week of action.
