The NFC West Gridiron Challenge is a bigger challenge than I thought.
My team managed all of 63 points in Week 3, with Reggie Wayne and Philip Rivers as my only players in double figures. The total was well below average and bad enough to leave my three-week total in the 41st percentile while dropping my team about 500 spots in the standings. It was a horrific week.
- QB: Kevin Kolb (27 points)
- QB: Drew Brees (6 points)
- RB: Steven Jackson (15 points)
- RB: Maurice Jones-Drew (31 points)
- WR: Santana Moss (23 points)
- WR: Reggie Wayne (18 points)
- TE: Dallas Clark (12 points)
- K: Robbie Gould (5 points)
- Defense: Ravens (22 points)
The chart shows overall leaders through Week 3, plus a couple of stragglers. My wife, who flashed her fantasy expertise by asking me Thursday whether starting Frank Gore would be a good move in Week 4, moved past me in the overall standings despite a so-so Week 3. And in case you're wondering, I told her the truth about Gore's status. I'll probably regret it.
