Week 3 turned out to be a much better week than Week 2. In all but 1 league, we saw considerable improvement.
Let's start with the ProfessorBainbridge.com Sixth Annual PPR Roto league, in which Da Commish vaulted into first place with a 42.80 point lead on second place Dana Pointers. Da Commish led all teams this week with 196.35 points, benefiting from huge games by Antono Brown (40.50!), Jordan Cameron, and the Chicago DST.
Turning to Tabb's Roto League, Bainbridge's Bruins crawled from 9th to 8th place in this 11 team league. This despite goose eggs from Hakeem Nicks and Jermichael Finle yand continued misery from David Wilson.
In the H2H leagues, Scalzi's Redshirts won to improve their record to 2-1 in ProfessorBainbridge.com's First Annual Last Minute League. In doing so, the Redhsirts seized first place in the league standings (parity's a bitch). Here's Yahoo's recap:
Scalzi's Redshirts (2-1, 414.26 points) swaps first place with Non-Billable Hours (2-1, 378.68 points), beating them 147.48 - 116.32. They overcame an 11.84-point deficit on Monday night, and put up the second-highest point total in the league this week. With this win, Scalzi's Redshirts scored 8.7% more points than projected and has now beaten expectations every week this season. Cam Newton, with 36.42 points, racked up the third-highest score for the week. To make matters worse, Non-Billable Hours got zero points from Hakeem Nicks.
In Tabb's H2H Cowboys Rule League (worst league name ever), my Cowboys Drool team finally won a game and thus improved to 1-2 (for 8th place):
Cowboys Drool got the second-highest player score of the week from Cam Newton (28.71) to get the win over Armadillo Armageddon 99.31 - 76.48. With this loss, Armadillo Armageddon scored 78.7% of their projected points, and has now failed to meet projections every week this season. Drew Brees, with 29.89 points, brought in the highest score this week. Cowboys Drool (1-2, 257.23 points) climbs into eighth place while Armadillo Armageddon (1-2, 259.78 points) drops to seventh place.
Sadly, in Professor Bainbridge's Sixth Annual H2H League, the Unseen Academicals lost for the second week in a row, falling to 1-2, having run into a buzz saw powered by Matthew Stafford, Jordan Cameron, and Cecil Shorts:
AvariciousAmphibians got the highest score this week on the way to their third win in as many matchups when they beat Unseen Academicals 146.50 - 106.64. The streak is due in part to AvariciousAmphibians having the second-highest scoring output in the league at 149.77 points per matchup. Unseen Academicals stays in seventh place with a 1-2 record. AvariciousAmphibians remains unbeaten and in first place having also beaten Vaqueros (162.63 - 123.38) and Portland Drizzles (140.17 - 103.23).
