We’re 3 weeks gone in this year’s fantasy football season, and already, trends are taking shape in the Literally Literate FFL. Six out of the ten teams have one win or fewer, and the positioning within the weekly rankings is getting tighter and tighter.
In my match up with [Br]eaking [Br]adshaw, I lost quite handily, but he’s been doing great so far, and I don’t see much slowing him down. I was able to keep my point total up, and maybe next week, I’ll get a break. [Br]eaking [Br]adshaw winds up atop the leader board going into week four. And my decent point production helps me stay in the top four. My QB and K could use some work, so I may look to supplement those positions, but for now, I feel good just holding on to make any drastic personnel changes.
Crawrsenal FC lands his highest point total this season at 102, while the Blair Walsh Project falls to 1-2 on the season, despite a solid scoring outing. This week, only CFC and [Br] broke the 100 point total, although the average margin of victory was 21 points. For CFC, this also marks the beginning of a winning streak, on the backs of Cam Newton and the Bears D. Next up for CFC, this week’s number 4 squad, will be a tough match against 2nd ranked Cousin Vinny’s Escort Services.
Team Reese claims her first victory this week over former number 3 rank Don’t Call Me Rodney. Of note in this match up is the inconsistent play of Beast Mode, Marshawn Lynch. Many believed that week 2’s performance declared a return to the runner of ol’, but after a lackluster performance in week 3, there may still be more to this story. A down week for Rodney, who got a double-digit performance from only one player. It doesn’t get any easier, though, as Rodney faces [Br]eaking [Br]adshaw in week 4. Lynch/Charles battle anyone?
A close one here as Dez Dispenser ends up losing to Cousin Vinny 90-87. Darren McFadden received 4 points for chucking a TD and 6 more for running one in. If only he could have accumulated more yards (9 yds on 12 att.), Dez may have gotten their first win. A down week for Cousin Vinny, who still posted one of the higher scores for the week and remains in the hunt for the playoffs early this season.
An upset from the number 9 week 3 seed Trophy Wife over number 5 Spacin’ Vaders. Vaders drops three spots in the week 4 rankings, to number 8 while Trophy Wife ascends to the number 5 spot this week. Jordan Cameron, Matt Forte, and Drew Brees continue to tear it up for Trophy Wife this season. On the opposite side, Peyton Manning is the leading scorer in fantasy football so far, with 90 points through three games, and helping out Spacin’ Vaders.
Here are the Week 4 Rankings for the literally Literate FFL:
1) [Br]eaking [Br]adshaw 148
2) Cousin Vinny’s Escort Services 138
3) I Pitta the Fool 136
4) Crawrsenal FC 116
5) Trophy Wife 110
5) The Blair Walsh Project 110
7) Don’t Call Me Rodney 104
8) Spacin’ Vaders 103
