After week three the MVP (based on points) is Phillip Rivers
After 3 weeks the following scoring leaders (by position)
QB: Still Phillip Rivers and Jay Cutler. Both have managed to gain some distance on the crowd
RB: Michael Turner and Marion Barber
WR: Anquan Boldin and Santana Moss (do we really expecte either to hold on?)
TE: Jason Witten, Tony Scheffler and (surpise addition) Anthony Fasano
D/SP: Titans and then Eagles
K: John Carney (a free agent in most leagues) and then Ryan Longwell
So, some surprise among position leaders but it's still early. Ronnie Brown (after that ridiculous effort against the Patriots Sunday) has come out of nowhere. Can anyone from the Dolphins maintain consistency over the whole season? Anthony had an excellent first week but wasn't even on the scoreboard in week two before having a decent game Sunday. Aaron Rodgers looked human and Tony Romo hasn't had a monster game yet. Peyton Manning? Any other quarterbacks? We did finally see some people wake up from a fantasy standpoint. It wasn't impressive but Ladanian Tomlinson (finally) woke up. TJ 'Whos-your-mama' had a decent game and Carson Palmer (considering what he's been like the past few weeks) had a great day.
Busts of 2008? After week 3 we can give a couple players a break and throw a couple more under the bus instead. Derek Alexander, Rudi Johnson (sorry, but before the season he was supposedly 100%), Stephen Jackson, Larry Johnson, Peyton Manning (he just looks off). Interesting when you consider keeper leagues. Most leagues (which allowed teams to keep two or more players anyway); kept all the players on the 'bust' list.
What do you all think?
