We’re three weeks into the fantasy football season and the surprises just keep on coming. Cam Newton and Matthew Stafford are top-10 fantasy quarterbacks. Coe College alum Fred Jackson is the third best fantasy back. And how about Scott Chandler, who had one catch before this year, picking up four scores in the first three weeks.

Cowboys Use Huge Second Half From Weeden to Beat Aggies

The term “tale of two halves” gets bandied about a lot in the college football world. Ranked teams don’t give enough credit to an upstart bunch from a tiny school, and then all of a sudden they find themselves down at the half and are shocked back into playing like they’re capable of.

Obviously the “upstart” tag could hardly be applied to the number 8 team in the country, but the Texas A&M Aggies came out Saturday afternoon and punched the Oklahoma State Cowboys right in the mouth. On only the fourth play from scrimmage of the game, Aggie QB Ryan Tannehill took advantage of overzealous Cowboy defensive lineman and busted a 65 yard touchdown run up the middle to give his team the early 7-0 advantage. The Aggies rode that momentum all the way through the first half, scoring another touchdown thanks to a great catch by Jeff Fuller, and at the end of 30 minutes A&M had a 20-3 lead, and “The 12th man” at Kyle Field was up for grabs. Things were looking bleak for the Cowboys, but things turned around quickly.

Week 2 Fantasy Football Rankings: Building on a strong week

If we learned one thing about the NFL in week one: the lockout certainly did not slow down the offensive numbers.  A ridiculous 14 quarterbacks had more than 300 yards, four of which went over 400. 13 receivers topped 100 yards, including seven double-digit touchdown performances. Needless to say, fantasy teams weren’t suffering. Now it’s time to build on that success and dominate week two of the fantasy season.
