The table is sorted by Week 3 scores.
  • Congratulations to Jacob Rickrode, who rode strong games from Kirk Cousins, Dalvin Cook, and Jared Cook to victory.
  • Eric Braun was an oh-so-close second-place finisher, mostly on the strength of a monster game from Stefon Diggs. 
  • I included seasonal totals for each participant as well, just for reference. This is still a weekly contest, and in Week 3, eight different analysts gave you double-digit plus/minus scores. Those are the types of plays that win GPPs.

    This one sets up for an interesting week. Now looking at that board I might have gone with Diggs again, but I'm glad to see that nobody else went with three of my picks.
