Even though Chicago Niners (third place, 2-1, 311.24 points) was behind The Shankers in the standings entering the week, they aren't behind on the scoreboard this week, knocking The Shankers (2-1, 260.88 points) from the league's top spot after thrashing them 146.62 to 70.38. Chicago Niners also got the second-highest point total this season. Is this fantasy football or mixed martial arts?

The Shankers was led by the tag team of Jamaal Charles, with 26.20 points, and Jimmy Graham, who scored 14.30. When assigning blame following this loss, The Shankers can look in the mirror.

Fantasy MasterpiecesWeek 3

Ronnie Brown Mia - RB 2007 vs. New York Jets 112 rushing yards, 99 receiving yards, 3 TDs What can Ronnie Brown do for you? Well, if it’s Week 3, the answer is likely to be, “an awful lot.” Not only did Brown flex his run/catch skills against the Jets in Week 3 of ’07, totaling 211 yards from scrimmage and three scores, but he also flashed in Week 3 of 2008, rushing for 113 yards and scoring four times against New England.

And while he did little as a receiver in that contest (9 yards), he did contribute to the passing game by tossing a 19-yard TD pass. In Brown’s first five NFL seasons, he topped 100 total yards in each of his five Week 3 contests.
Each week of the season we will bring you the top fantasy football performances of the past 10+ years for that week.
