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
Female BuyIn: WandaC’s Team topped the league this week with 123.12 points. Michael Crabtree provided 29.00 points and WR Davante Adams (Packers) helped with 19.90. Close behind was Liz’s Legendary Team (that’s me) scoring 119.34 points. Todd Gurley II brought his game Sunday along with WR Emmanuel Sanders (Broncos) netting a cool 21.20 points.
>> NEW LEADER: Sue’s Superb Team
Coed Free: Heels n Football gets mentioned again, this time for being top team week 2 with a whopping 149.12 points. Helping her out was running backs Todd Gurley II and Devonta Freeman (Falcons) with 23.00 fantasy points. Long time fantasy player, prissybee’s Team scored in at 122.94. Quarterback Drew Brees (Saints) with 22.24 points and Denver defense 13.00 were highlights with this balanced group.
>> NEW LEADER: With Luck I’ll Win
Coed BuyIn: Kudos to DawgPoundHound for topping the charts this week achieving 137.64 points. Four of her players had 20+ week 2 fantasy points. A close second was Liz’s Legendary Team (again, that’s me) scoring 134.12 points. Every offensive position on this team had double digits, except one.
>> LEADER: Pink Panthers
Tom Brady (Patriots) came back with a vengeance earning 30+ fantasy points. We saw that coming after a week 1 loss. WR Michael Crabtree (Raiders) went a perfect 6 for 6 and three touchdowns, earning him 30 points. Top tight end was Travis Kelce (Chiefs) with 24+ fantasy points. And yes, RB Kareem Hunt (Chiefs) was putting on a show once again, this time with 25+ points for his owners.
