Fantasy Football Week 3 Results

Image

So after I put up a complete goose egg last week and I lost in every single one of my games, I said it couldn’t get any worse. I had no where to go but up, and while I didn’t get the exact results I was looking for, I ended up going 4-4 with a .500 records for week three. Reggie Bush being hurt really put a dent in some of my production, and what even put a bigger dent in my production was the fact that I forgot to take him out of three of my lineups!!! I tweeted out that Bush was out, but having 8 teams got the best of me and I didn’t check them all. I have Gronk on several of my teams, so I expect to see a huge spike in production once he returns.

Currently my quarterback in the first round strategy is working out the best with a 2-1 record. My all bye week strategy team actually got a win this week, and two of my 94 point strategy teams got their first win. Like some of you out there, I have two 0-3 teams. If you are relatively new to fantasy football you are rightfully freaking out and either contemplating giving up on your whole season or trying to have a fire sale on any decent player you have to try to get a few players who are just above average. I forget who said it, but one of my favorite quotes that has always stuck with me goes along the lines of, “If you get your butt kicked, you don’t sit around and make excuses. You tell your opponent good game, and you go back to the drawing board to make sure it doesn’t happen next week”.

I started out 0-4 last year in my major money league, and I ended up going on a sick run that had me as the number 4 seed playing against the 1st seed for a spot in the championship. I lost that game and ended up loosing my next game to finish 4th for the season, but after rough start I was proud of how I battled through my poor record. I hit the waiver wire hard, picked up defenses and kickers who had the best matchups for the week, and I took risks when I needed to. Just because you are 0-3, do not, do not, do not, do not, do not, do not, do not give up! Right around the time you give up is normally when you would find success if you kept up with it.

So for those of you struggling this season, read the boxscores from week 3 and see what wide receivers are receiving a lot of targets, follow beat writers on twitter who may have some inside information on how a running back is dealing with an injury, and just do your best. That is all you can do.

Good luck in week 4 and have fun!
