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!

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)

The Pride Report: Week 2

by Sonja Greenfield //  @Mom23RN

Welcome to the 2017 Season Lions Fans!

After a Jekyll and Hyde start to the Campaign for Super Bowl 52 with another come from behind win for the Lions,  the team took their talents to MetLife Stadium in New York to face the New York Giants.  The Giants were coming off of a loss to their division rival Dallas Cowboys.  Their Diva wide receiver Odell Beckham, Jr. was still dealing with an ankle injury from preseason, and cornerback Janoris Jenkins would be out for the game as well.  Could the League’s highest paid player lead his team to victory in hostile territory?   Well, he did.  quarterback Matthew Stafford showed leadership and wheels.  He got the Lions ahead, and the defense and the rest of the team, did what they needed to do to secure the 24-10 Victory.

King Of The Pride:  While Stafford has done some big things, last night belonged to the defense and defensive end Ezekiel “Ziggy” Ansah.  While battling injuries last year, and not having the best first game of the season, the Lions first pick from the 2013 draft had a beast of a night.  He had 6 tackles, 3 sacks and 1 forced fumble.   Not a bad day!  Honorable mentions goes to rookie linebacker Jarrad Davis and rookie cornerback Jamal Agnew.  Davis had 3 tackles, and 1 sack.  Unfortunately, he had to leave the game with a concussion.   Jamal Agnew had an 88 yard punt return for a touchdown that put the Giants away.  That was the first punt return for a touchdown since Eddie Drummond did it in 2002.  It’s been a long time Lions fans!
