Well, hopefully your fantasy football team fared better than the Green Bay Packers did Monday night. Too soon, Packers fans? How does it feel being the sacrificial lamb that'll hopefully resolve the replacement official situation? Not good, I bet.
Enough jibber jabber! It's time for champs and chumps.
The AFC North’s quarterbacks share Week 3 QB champ honors. Excluding Brandon Weeden of course. Brandon Weeden does not count.
AFC North QB Cumulative Week 3 Stats (w/o Weeden): 1,094 yds, 10 pass TDs, 2 INTs, 27 rush yds
Ben Roethlisberger: 384 pass yds, 4 pass TDs, 8 rush yds
Joe Flacco: 382 pass yds, 3 pass TDs, INT, 3 rush yds
Andy Dalton: 328 pass yds, 3 pass TDs, INT, 16 rush yds
This trio also makes up three of the top four passing leaders in the AFC. (Matt Schaub is crashing the AFC North QB party.)
Philip Rivers: 173 pass yds, 2 INTs, 2 rush yds
Question: Who has fewer passing yards than Andrew Luck, more interceptions than Blaine Gabbert, and a worse QB rating than Jake Locker?
Answer: (You guessed it!) Philip Rivers
Tony Romo: 283 pass yds, INT, 1 rush yd, 2 fumbles lost
Next week, he faces a Bears’ pass defense that’s ranked No. 6 in the NFL. Bench him if you can.
Michael Vick: 217 pass yds, 28 rush yds, 2 fumbles lost
While you are reading this, opposing defenders are sacking Michael Vick.
Torrey Smith: 127 rec yds, 2 rec TDs
Talk about playing with emotion.
A.J. Green: 183 rec yds, rec TD, 11 rush yds
Your AFC receiving leader is on a roll. Did you know that A.J. actually stands for “Awesome Jumper”? Go check. I’m not kidding.
Mike Wallace: 123 rec yds, rec TD
So much for training camp.
Marques Colston: 40 rec yds
It’s not surprising that at this point in the year Colston has fewer total receiving yards (160) than Jimmy Graham (172). It is surprising though that he has fewer receiving yards than Darren Sproles (163) and (surprise team-leader) Lance Moore (220).
Victor Cruz: 42 rec yds
Champ decoy-- not great for fantasy purposes.
Jamaal Charles: 233 rush yds, rush TD, 55 rec yds
“Don’t draft Jamaal Charles in Round 1 of your fantasy draft. I hear Peyton Hillis is in excellent shape.”
Maurice Jones-Drew: 177 rush yds, rush TD, 16 rec yds
“Don’t draft MJD in Round 1 of your fantasy draft because of his holdout.”
Ray Rice: 101 rush yds, rush TD, 49 rec yds
“Don’t draft Ray Rice in Round 1 of your fantasy draft because he is short.” Just kidding, no one really said that.
Chris Johnson: 24 rush yds, 5 rec yds
Speaking of players you shouldn’t draft though, here’s CJ2K. Someone get this man a raise!
Steven Jackson: 29 rush yds, 5 rec yds
You could try to trade him, but no one’s going to want him. Good luck against the Seahawks’ run defense next week, SJax.
Tony Gonzalez: 91 rec yds, rec TD
Still a champ at 90 years old.
Rob Gronkowski: 21 rec yds
No Aaron Hernandez means it’s GRONK TIME! Right? No? Lots of things in the NFL don’t make sense this season.
Ryan Succop: 1/1 FG 20-29 yds, 3/3 FG 30-39 yds, 2/2 FG 40-49 yds, 1/1 XP
Chiefs’ franchise record six-for-six on field goals? Check.
Game-typing field goal to send the game to overtime? Check.
Game-winning field goal in OT? Priceless.
Matt Bryant: 3/3 XP
Matt Bryant was not a falcon for fantasy owners. He was a puffin.
The Replacement Officials: BAD JOB!
If they were fantasy players, they’d be getting you negative points.
