Up for Grabs

Brandin Cooks and the Boys are one of 13 teams at 2-1 or 1-2

Brandin Cooks

In a wild Week 3 that capped off the opening weeks of divisional play, things remain wide open in the YFFL.

Preseason darlings the Big Boys were facing an almost must-win this week and stood up to the challange thanks to a team effort spearheaded by a late score and conversion from WR Brandin Cooks that (literally) left Steve speechless, the Thugs and Buddies pulled off upsets over their division leaders, the Beans surged to the top of the NFC West and Tom Brady put Bear Poop on his back (phrasing) with a 5 TD effort.

The result: thirteen of the sixteen YFFL teams now stand at 2-1 or 1-2 after three weeks of divisional play. With bye weeks looming on the horizon, roster depth will be tested before these teams clash within the division yet again. Who will be left standing? At this point, it's anyone's guess.

Elsewhere around the league, owner Anthony Aceto's 2017 dominance continued as the White Guys steamrolled the Dragons behind 80 points (the second time in three weeks that they've set a team single game scoring record!) and the Refugees outlasted the Llamas 48-36. Both teams remain undefeated at 3-0. On the opposite side of the spectrum, the Orangutangs dropped to 0-3 and are the only winless team remaining. After rebounding from 0-3 and 0-2 starts in the past two seasons to capture the AFC Wild Card, is there more magic in the air for Tangs or is it time to pack up for the season? A pivotal Week 4 matchup with the Merry Men may give us an answer.

GAME OF THE WEEK presented by Nick's Picks

  Dragons vs. White Guys (-3.5)

The Alex Smith story has been a good one to start the season, but I don't think this overall production remain consistent all year when this WGs team is relying on big numbers from both the passing and running game of the same NFL team. For now, I think Aaron Rodgers carries the Dragons to victory. Please, no one alert Aceto that it could be the perfect time to take advantage of Steve's love for Matt Stafford, the Lions, and draft picks to steal Big Ben off of him for a silly late first round pick or else the WGs will be the heavy favorite to take the title.
