There are a lot of juicy matchups on paper this week, but as we’ve seen, that doesn’t always mean much (I’m looking at you Giants/Saints). 8 of the 16 games on this week’s schedule have an over/under set at or above 45… Good news for fantasy owners. That said, this may be one of those high scoring weeks where you get the most from every position… And still take a L. Bittersweet.
Seems like it was fantasy draft season just days ago, but at the conclusion of this week’s games, the fantasy season will be about 25% complete… Sad, I know. For that reason, Week 3 is always crucial. I’ve found that the magic number for playoff contention is 7 wins. 8 + wins pretty much always gets you in (10 team leagues), but 7 will find you right there on the edge. If you’re 0-2, no need to panic, but you definitely don’t want to find yourself having to win 7 of 10. Likewise, the difference between 2-1 and 1-2, is bigger than you may think… I won’t let you blow it this week!
