Well, week three is nearly in the books folks and we're pretty sure most of you are sitting there wondering where all the studs have gone. If you drafted well and played the right guys for the first two weeks of the NFL season, you likely felt pretty good going into week three. Unfortunately, week three buzz-sawed many of the top players in the game. In fact, if you look at the overall ADP of the standard redraft leagues prior to this season, you'll notice that not a single first round pick was a "STUD" this week, and of the top 32 picks, 18 (56%) were either "OUT" or "DUDS".
Additionally, take a look at the 20 "BIG NAMES" that were expected to have good games, only to be held to fewer than 9 fantasy points (standard scoring). Hopefully you played against these big name players and didn't have them in your lineup.
So, it was a lousy week three for most fantasy football studs. Let's lick our wounds and get back out there for week four. In general, we're predicting a nice bounce back week for many of the big names (specifically the Saints, Packers, 49ers, and Lions players), but just remember, there are no sure things in the NFL and in fantasy football.
