We’re a day late with your weekly stimulation through repeated moving pictures. GIF gate keeper Scott Lewis took a brief sabbatical to visit his homeland on Canada’s majestic east coast, a place where 95-year-old women shoot moose, and that’s just your average Tuesday.

But that turned out to be a cleverly disguised blessing, because now we’ve provided Packers fans with a way to watch the controversial ending of last night’s game throughout their entire work day, week, and year. Please don’t hurt me.

Week 1 was horrible, Week 2 was outstanding, and Week 3 was somewhere in between from a betting perspective. I went 7-6-1 ATS in all games, but more importantly 2-1 ATS with my recommended bets, getting up above the .500 mark for the first time this year. I thought the swings that I endured last week were rough, but this week I nearly had an ulcer. I can’t remember a crazier group of 1:00 games than the games from this week.

Anyways, without further ado, here were my thoughts from Week 3.

So it’s the third week now, and hope has been restored, light has been located, and what was lost when minds melted and heads asploded after Week 1 has been found. Serenity now, serenity now.

That will last for, oh, 24 more hours. Week 3, ahoy…

Week 2 was a great bounce back week for me. After struggling with my picks in Week 1, I rebounded nicely with a 9-4-1 ATS record to get back to the .500 mark. The main difference in that one week span was that I was more willing to bet on bad teams if I felt that there was a little bit of line value with them. I tend to bet a lot of underdogs because there’s usually a lot more value in taking underdogs than favorites. In Week 1, I couldn’t make a case for a lot of the underdogs so I decided to go with the favorites instead of taking the line value. I tweaked my strategy a little bit in Week 2 and I was rewarded for it.

Week 3 presents a lot of good betting opportunities and a lot of games I’m not quite sure about. We’ve only seen two games by each team, so for the second straight week I will stress that the key will be not to overreact to such a small sample size.  Hopefully I can carry the momentum from Week 2 into Week 3.

Week 3 composite player rankings

It’s week three of the NFL season, and I’ve spent hours (my eyeballs hurt) combining the fantasy rankings of experts Michael Fabiano/Adam Rank of NFL.com and Dave Richard/Jamey Eisenberg of CBSSports.com into five easy-to-read charts.

Why did I do this?

Is it because I love you? Is it an assigned job? Am I secretly feeding you false information on the off-chance that we’re playing each other in fantasy football this week?

I’m not going to dignify any of those questions with a response. There’s no need to question my motivation, just enjoy this weeks’ rankings.
