Three weeks in, and I'm happy to say that while the Eliminator was not kind to me in the least, the other two leagues are going excellent (at least for me).

4 more contestants went down this week, leaving only the fabulous five above. A. Mercier was the only survivor left to pick anyone other than San Diego, while this week's losers were struck down by the Pats, Cards, Jets, and 'Skins. As for my picks, I'm now wrong more than I'm right, since the Pats got shocked by the Bills.
We're starting to get some driftwood at the end of our 24 contestants, with eight incomplete entries, but the top of the list has a hot stove feel to it. Only two correct picks separate first from fourth, with another six players only four picks away from the top spot. Our leader? Yours truly! I survived my weakest week yet (only 10 correct picks) to keep the top spot away from Lweb23, still in second with 34 correct picks total. Trunklegs had the best week out of all of us, leading the way with 12 correct and earning them a third place tie with souljez at 33.
Three weeks, three different leaders, meaning half our gladiators have felt the warm sun shining down upon them from the top of the mountain. I claim the top spot this week with a ridiculous 153 points thanks to crazy games by Stafford, Brady, Jimmy Graham, and Megatron. My total is now 443, with apetigo jumping into the number two position with a 410 total. Krystelesantoro (404) and Hess (403) are battling for the third spot after subpar weeks, and aren't far behind number two.
Until next time, may your fantasy selections be correct and bountiful, but not good enough to take me down!
