Is everybody as fed up with this season as I am? It is usually at least 6-8 weeks before my fantasy football spirit is completely crushed, so a Week 3 slump is a personal record in my book. What is going on here? I’ll tell you what is going on here. In PPR leagues:
- Alex Smith, Trevor Siemian, and Jared Goff are QB 1’s. Phillip Rivers, Cam Newton and Andy Dalton are QB 3’s. 3’s!!!!
- Through 3 weeks, the combination of Chris Thompson, Tarik Cohen, Duke Johnson Jr & Alex Collins have outscored the combination of Ezekiel Elliott, LeSean McCoy, Le’Veon Bell, DeMarco Murray, and David Johnson.
- The Minnesota Vikings have 2 Top 10 Fantasy WR and the Chicago Bears have 2 Top 11 Fantasy RB.
- The Jared Goff led St. Louis Rams are leading the league in scoring
Seriously…There are so many players, teams and situations that I am ready to bail on. You always want to give it just one more week, but in a 13 week fantasy season, starting off 0-3 or even 0-4 is a very difficult road to come back from, and one that leaves very little room for error. The fantasy season is definitely more like a marathon and less like sprint, but if you don’t do something when you are staring at 0-3 in the face, you might as well be running a marathon with a weighted vest and snowshoes.
When you are in as many leagues as I am, you have an opportunity to have a lot of shares of different players. You might find yourself with one, or many of these players on your team, but these are some of them that I am officially DONE with: Continue reading Week 3 Reflection: Players I Am DONE With!
