Fantasy football owners enter the major portion of Week 3 with a sense of hope.
After weeks of dud offensive performances mostly making up the biggest story, the Los Angeles Rams and San Francisco 49ers played to a 41-39 affair in favor of the latter.
There, Rams running back Todd Gurley put up 32.90 points and 49ers back Carlos Hyde countered with 21.40 points. L.A. quarterback Jared Goff went for 23.58.
A shootout between a pair of rebuilding teams might not inspire some, but points are points at this stage of what has been a down season so far. And based on Gurley's early resurg...more

But so goes the trick of walking the tightrope, right? There is more risk involved in rolling with a built-in underdog, considering oddsmakers construct the lines to protect the house.
There are whiffs this early in the season...more
It's always a wake-up call at the beginning of each new NFL season to remember that it takes a few weeks for these teams to get into their strides and start putting some compelling product on the field.
But, man, it feels like a slow start this year.
Week 2 held more surprises and flipped scripts in the NFL, from whatever it was we saw on Thursday Night Football between the Houston Texans and Cincinnati Bengals to the Green Bay Packers struggling mightily and losing by double digits in prime time to the Atlanta Falcons.
Big Ben and the Steelers offense are lackluster. The Col...more
The NFL regained a sense of normalcy in Week 2.
After an eye-opening Week 1 where big names like the New England Patriots went down, Tom Brady and other usual suspects turned it around and regained momentum both in the power rankings and in the minds of oddsmakers out of Las Vegas.

An inexact science, of course, but it appears there are plenty of quality lines worth examing after a loo...more
