BFTB Fantasy Football League: Week 3 Recap and Standings

After a trio of weeks, find out who has stayed the course and which teams have lost their way.

NFL: Miami Dolphins at Los Angeles Chargers Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports

Another week, a couple more big point totals put up by Lou and Richard. Like I stated a couple of weeks ago, Richard continues to look like he could run away with this league title but Lou has planted a giant, Sam Kweon-printed flag in his way.

Jason and his Sans Diego squad are the only other 3-0 team that remains, but he is a hefty 90 points behind Lou and a solid 44 behind second place Richard.

After three straight weeks of starting Andrew Luck, Thomas and his Chargers_UK squad are actually NOT in last place. Ruben’s Trips Right team somehow has managed the least amount of points through three weeks and currently sits in the basement of the BFTB league.

Sorry, Ruben :(

It’s still quite early in the season so I’ll avoid pronouncing any one team “down for the count.” This is fantasy football after all, where crazy things happen each and every week.
