What’s up fantasy footballers! The C3 Fantasy Football Challenge is in full-effect. Unlike the first two weeks, Weeks 3 and 4 tip the Mike Shula cap to some of the worst performances in the league.Read More
This was a standard set of selections until pick 7 when Team Kuech'n Ass! picked Christian McCaffrey. Now this is a league full of Panthers fans, but seven is super high! It may not be outrageous, however, when it is all said and done. If a guy is going to destroy it, why does it matter if you pick him at 7 or 17?
I was going to say that Jordy Nelson crept pretty high in Mills at #8, but he went #5 in Minter. We saw another quarterback go in the first here with Aaron Rodgers. Jordan Howard also leap frogged McCoy to make the Top 10.
This had all the names in the order we've been seeing in most mock drafts. Both Mike Evans and AJ Green fell a little because Devonta Freeman jumped into the Top 3 and Todd Gurley went 11. This group targeted the running backs clearly.
Oh Julio Jones jumped to #2 overall like he was catching a pass in a Super Bowl loss! Dez Brant cracked the first round, Jay Ajayi made the 1st Round for the first time in all the C3 leagues, and Mike Evans jumped ahead of Odell Beckham Jr.

This is year four of the C3 Fantasy Football League. Four divisions of 12 teams battle it out throughout the season. Each week there are Panther prizes given out for random contests. Every team is a Panthers fan and every week is a blast. Next week (Tuesday, August 22) is the draft order selection show. We will be giving a way a Luke Kuechley jersey and other cool PanthersRead More
With but a single week left in the C3FF Challenge, in Minter League, the East has been won by Bortlemilk Biscuts (10-2), who has a 2-game lead on Panther Storm. In the West (8-4). The West has team Make America Great aGinn at 8-4 with a 1-game lead over Summertime, and the livin's Exek at 7-5. If Panther Storm wins this week, they lock-in to a Wild Card spot at minimum, so the pressure is on! However, they face the league's worst team, team Truesdale, at 2-10.Read More
Well, week 9 had a lot of blowouts, including my game that I lost by about 50 FP. I've pretty much given up on this, since I STILL have out-scored everyone in my division, yet, I'm tied for last at 3-6. Kinda shows me the futility of playing head-to-head FF, since I have absolutely zero control over "fantasy points allowed," which is even higher than those that I've scored. It's pretty pointless.
That said, Monday Night Football wound up giving Minter League a couple of close matches:Read More
Sorry for the late posting of last week's Minter League recap, but this week has been inordinately busy for me. Hopefully, things get back more normal next week.
As for results, well, Let's just say I changed my team name to reflect the outcomes of my season:Read More
No undefeated fantasy teams remain in the Minter league of the #C3FF Challenge here in our third season, and I have to say it seems to be more competitive each year.
I've noticed ...PantherStorm is very, very active on the waiver wire, which means an actively managed team. Despite suffering their first loss of the season, they remain in first place in the East division and are a good example of how to be involved in a fantasy football franchise that stays competitive every week and has a chance to win it all.Read More
Game 1: Ginn and Juice (0-4) ------------ 89.5
Bortlemilk Biscuits (2-2) ----------- 95.5
Bortlemilk Biscuits won this one despite bafflingly starting Ryan Tannehill against the Bengals in Cincy (12 FP) upon LB Vontaze Burfict's return. Instead, he had Bortles benched in London against that so-tightly-defended Indy secondary (28 FP). Then again, the game started at 9:30 am so he may not have had time to substitute for him. BB still won by 6 FP, and doing so with some pretty steady FP from his starters. Ginn and Juice had a few standout performers (Luck, Antonio Brown, Brandon Marshall) but it wasn't enough to quite climb the hill. Neither team had a great fantasy output and nobody on the bench would have helped with the bye weeks starting.
Game 2: Panther Storm (4-0) ---- 101.5
Shaq Lives Matter (1-3) ------ 96.0
Panther Storm has taken the division lead at 4-0 with no signs of looking back. I have noticed it's probably the most active team week-to-week, and key to winning is that in-season management. The only amusement I get from this game? He had Meg yan's 44 FP on the bench.
Game 3: My Ball Zach Ertz (0-4) ---------------------- 84
Summertime, and the Livins Ezek (1-2) -------- 171.5
I included this one because the winner could literally have scored half the FP he did and still would have won. Summertime's box score demonstrates what's possible in fantasy football when all your starters have good games.
Overall comment on standings: Eastern division leader is 4-0, with 1 at 3-1. Western Division has three teams tied at 3-1.
Interesting that yours truly and Panther Storm have scored exactly the same number of FP, 537.5, over 4 games, but I'm 2-2 while PS is 4-0. Such is the "luck of the draw" factor in Head-to-Head matchups.
This past week was the week of QB injuries. Unfortunately, Cam suffered a concussion on yet ANOTHER "I'll ease up on this score" lazy saunter. Perhaps this time, he'll actually figure out it's better to go hard that final yard, cross the goal line, THEN he can let up. An angry NFL defender is not a good thing to "overlook" in his situation, and he has done that several times.
Carson Palmer is also injured, but the severity isn't yet known to me. I'm sure you can google updated info on him at any time, but what's interesting about Palmer was a comment I saw posted supposedly coming from another GM: "He is the LEAST clutch QB in the NFL." Ouch.

A lot of teams were looking to get on the positive side of .500 this week while others are still batting 1.000. Let's take a look at a few of the match ups.
WEGHER MINUTE (2-1) - 143
HOG MOLLIE HEROES (1-2) -113.5
Wegher Minute continues to climb in points with the highest score in the league after losing in week one with a measly 76 points. Wide receivers were the hot position in this match up as Marvin Jones scored 42 for Wegher Minute and Mike Evans had 25 for Hog Mollies. Both were the top scorers for their respective teams.
TheLongAnd KawaanShortOfIt (3-0)- 96
NOT-SO-LAZY-SUSANS (1-2)- 85.5
The ShortOfIt is the only remaining undefeated after squeezing out a grinding victory over Not-So-Lazy Susans. T.Y. Hilton (33) and Desean Jackson (19.5) shouldered the load for ShortOfIt while the Susans had a more balanced attack led by Demaryius Thomas (23) and Melvin Gordon (18). Unfortunately, the Susan's couldn't tip the scales out of balance and more in their favor to win. The KawaanShortOfIt stands alone at the top of the standings heading into week four at 3-0.
Chattahoochee Hoochekoochees (2-1)- 136.5
I WORLEY HAVE THE FUNCHIES (2-1)- 86
C.H. was able to knock one of the unbeaten in this one and in convincing fashion. Funchies got a combined 14 points from their quarterback and two flex position that really killed them, while C.H. got a huge lift from their Chiefs defense this week for 35 points. The con of that Chiefs defense was the fact that they were playing Ryan Fitzpatrick who C.H. also started and registered a terrible -3 points. Funchies will look to bounce back to their winning ways in week four.
The Kawaan Short Of It stands 3-0, just a game ahead of Kalil Me Maybe (2-1) and Wegher Minute (2-1) in the East division. Out West there's a three way tie with 2-1 records between Chattahoochee, I Worley Have The Funchies, and Andrews Panthers.
It's obviously still young in the fantasy season but teams should start separating themselves over the next few weeks.
No huge names on waivers now that Matt Ryan and Isaiah Crowell have been picked up after play this week. Ryan is a top-five fantasy QB through 2 games & Crowell refuses to be displaced in Cleveland as their RB1. Christine Michael is likely the top RB on waivers now, and he’s a shaky play because of the Seahawks’ sieve-like offensive line.Read More
