WEEK #3:
3 weeks & a 3rd different winner. Osso turned in the best performance by anyone so far, finishing @ 13-3. Her miscues were in picking Indy, Carolina and (along with everyone else) New England. Very well done.
Tico, Imur and Cowdoc were close behind @ 12-4 and just behind them came Rockhead & Ragman @11-5.
Johnboy, ElStud, Wandejw, Region & Alex managed to end with Wins in the double-digits. 10-6 for that group.
9-7 was the best McGentrix, Foxfyre, Fbaezer & Mysteryman could muster.
Liontamerx & EhBeth broke even @ 8-8.
Underwater for the week @7-9 were Jespah and Miz Cowdoc. And at the bottom of the pool was George @6-10.
20 pickers in Week #3. Not playing were Edgar, MaPorsche & Sublime1.

STANDINGS AFTER WEEK #3:
This early in the season with relatively few games having been played, a player who has a very good (or bad) week can expect to see a big move in the standings.
Case in point are Wandeljw & Ragman who have been in 1st or 2nd place since Week#1. Suddenly here comes Osso, rising from 9th to end in a tie for 1st. The 3 of them are now @ 31-16 (.659).
Imur moves from 9th to a tie for 4th with Johnboy @ 30-17 (.638).
Tico & Cowdoc go from 13th to 6th, joining ElStud. They are @29-18 (.617).
Asleep in the 9th position @ 9-6 (.600) is Sublime1. Fbaezer (28-19 .595) slips to 10th. Edgar (18-13 .580) has 11th.
McGentrix, Region & Rockhead (after a good week) share 12th (27-20 .574).
In 15th (26-21 .553) are Foxfyre & Jespah.
Only 5 wins at the most separate the 16 players above.
The missing Maporsche & Liontamer are in 17th (.533).
Ehbeth (24-23 .510), Mysteryman (23-23 .500), Alex (22-23 .488) & Miz Cowdoc (15-16 .483) are in 19th through 22nd respectively.
I guess that is everyo...No! wait a minute. I see someone back in the distance. It's George! In 23rd is George (20-27 .425). George is now 11 Wins behind the leaders. George has put together 3 out of 3 weeks in which he has more losses than wins. Way to go, George!
The best ESPN guy is doing well: (32-15 .681) He would be leading here. The worst guy would be in 10th (28-19 .595)

Let me know of any errors and next week I will put this in an easier to read format.

George is a good sport whose only reason for playing is to make others look good. We all owe George a big Thank You! Smile

Hmmm.. So I'm in 15th place--honored to share that slot with Jespah--but we're only 5 wins out of first place? I think I let ESPN advise me on the power ratings last week. I think I'll let somebody else this week. Smile

WEEK #4 SCHEDULE ---
We only have 13 games to pick this week. 6 teams have byes.
In addition to each team's record, I have this week included Points For vs Points Against. That should muddy things up a bit.

Early games:
Cleveland (0-3; 26PF-66PA) @ Cincinatti (0-3; 43-61)
Houston (0-2; 29-69) @ Jacksonville (1-2; 49-58)
Atlanta (2-1; 81-59) @ Carolina (2-1; 56-61)
Denver (3-0; 114-84) @ Kansas City (0-3; 32-78)
San Francisco (2-1; 77-66) @ New Orleans (1-2; 80-83)
Arizona (2-1; 71-47) @ NY Jets (1-2; 59-81)
Green Bay (2-1; 88-71) @ Tampa Bay (2-1; 71-57)
Minnesota (1-2; 54-52) @ Tennessee (3-0; 72-29)
Late games:
Buffalo (3-0; 78-49) @ St Louis (0-3; 29-116)
San Diego (1-2; 110-94) @ Oakland (1-2 ; 60-73)
Washington (2-1; 60-57 @ Dallas (3-0; 96-63)
Sunday night:
Philadelphia (2-1; 90-50) @ Chicago (1-2; 70-60)
Monday night:
Baltimore (2-0; 45-20) @ Pittsburgh (2-1; 54-38)
Include the final score for that last game. Points by each team.
Bye week teams: Detroit, Indianapolis, Miami, New England, NY Giants and Seattle.

Johnboy quickly goes for:
Cincy (they can't both lose)
Jacksonville
Atlanta
Denver (romp, romp, romp)
New Orleans
Arizona
Tampa Bay (home field advantage the only deciding factor)
Tennessee (romp)
Buffalo (can you say romp)
San Diego
Dallas
Philadelphia
Pittsburgh (21-20)

Football helmet off, baseball hat on, as Johnboy goes into the 2nd and deciding week in the Fantasy Baseball championship. Playing the tag team of JPB and Rockhead (aka Squirrels). I am ahead for the moment. But I can see the lead slipping away.

This will just make my come-from-behind victory all the more dramatic.

I note that Maporsche is back on A2K after an absence of a week or so. If one of yall knows him better than I do, please invite him back to this game. My fall-back plan is to interrupt him on some unrelated thread that I don't hang out at. I hate to do that.
This week, if I can get him, can wake up Subline1, and get Edgar's power back on, is to go for a record of 23 players. That has never been done before.

@realjohnboy,
Message left for Mr. Maporsche HERE: http://able2know.org/topic/122934-3#post-3411932

Until everybody gets this thread tagged, we may need to go after them that way. Anybody know what thread Sublime is hanging out on?

@Foxfyre,
I saw him on an exercise thread on Sunday morning before kickoff and nudged him, but he apparently didn't check the thread.
I used to be the nudger, back when we had pms. I only nudge once.
Some folks get aggravated.
And, we're all grown ups.

What about inviting CI? He played every game last year and did pretty well.
