Sep 26, 2017

A man (or business) reveals his true character not by how he wins, but how he loses. In Week 3, The Wolf (@RotoStreetWolf) took repeated uppercuts to the chin with the worst predictive performance of his life. Instead of only confessing our sins, however, Wolf and Truth break down the lessons that can be learned from our mistakes such as Stefon Diggs and TY Hilton’s monster games, Jack Doyle and Rashad Higgins’ disappearing acts, and the floundering Dolphins performance. We also look at the various other crucial takeaways from an insane Sunday of football with our Usage Report and Six Word Stories: Where would Kareem Hunt rank on our season long Big Board? How did the Bengals offense look under new OC Bill Lazor, and who’s rising in value fast? Just how important is Odell Beckham to the Giants? What workhorse backs have cemented their RB1 status, and who’s nosedived into the turf? Plus, after a week of horrendous calls, the silver lining is our most jam-packed whine line yet. Don’t let our tough Week 3 predictions leave you empty-handed. Instead, leave with the info (and entertainment) that’ll strengthen you for a championship run!
