In spite of our friends in Las Vegas, who didn’t set any over/unders above 49 points this week, the NFL once again delivered with some big scores, as evidenced by our Top 10 Fantasy Football players of Week 3.

As a matter of fact, there were six different NFL games (out of 14, not including Sunday and Monday night’s games) to total over 50 points.

Looking even closer, there were eight teams that scored at least 30 points!

The party is over next week, though, as two teams go on byes, and all of those available Fantasy points get chopped down just a bit.

Either way, Week 3 was full of some amazing contributions, from some running backs and wide receivers, specifically.
