Week four felt like another exercise in futility, but we actually didn’t fare too badly. Fantasy Editor Maggio continues showing he can pick more than fake football ranks. He won the week with 12 out of 15 correct. Andy and Tony trailed by one. Here are the standings:

After a tough week two, we all hit our survivor picks in week three. There are a couple relatively safe-feeling picks this week. They ended up being nearly unanimous again. Here’s who we picked and why:
|Andy||Indianapolis||Green Bay, Arizona, Seattle|
|Tony||Indianapolis||Green Bay, Pittsburgh, Arizona|
|Rich||Green Bay||NY Jets, New England, Seattle|
|Maggio||Indianapolis||New England, New Orleans (eliminated), Seattle|
|Vomhof||Indianapolis||Green Bay, New Orleans (eliminated), Seattle|
Andy and Rich rebounded from a combined sub-.500 effort with matching 14-2 marks. That jumped Andy into a tie for the season lead with Anthony Maggio and Rich to within just a few games.
Everyone scored at least 11 right.
Here are the standings so far:
