With three weeks now in the books, the overall standings are starting to take shape with DailyFantasyNerd leading the way so far after their second straight week with a top three finish. Meanwhile, our Industry Consensus list is providing solid picks every week with good options at the top of the list as well as some good lower owned GPP options near the bottom of the list.

Be sure to come back each week for a review of the Industry Consensus picks highlighting the top (and bottom) grades for the week and season from the experts we are tracking. For Week 3 we tracked and graded 26 sets of experts picks including the Industry Consensus list. You can view all expert’s overall rankings on the Expert Grading page.

On to the Week 3 grades, class is in session!

Consensus Recap – Week 3

The Industry Consensus picks had another solid week finishing in 10th place overall out of 26 experts graded this week.  This week the consensus list was solid at the primary positions this week with a top 10 finish at QB, RB and WR.

At quarterback, the consensus picks finished 9th, included solid plays from the highly recommended Ryan Tannehill along with a suggested play of Aaron Rodgers. Top plays from the running back position included Charles Sims, David Johnson and DeMarco Murray on the way to a 9th place showing at the position. Wide Receiver had the best showing for the consensus list finishing 8th and really shined at the top of the list with Antonio Brown and Jarvis Landry and the bottom of the list with Marvin Jones and T.Y. Hilton. The consensus list finished 13th at tight end with no high-end players recommended. And finally, the defense position fell flat this week with no grade above a “D”.

Head of the Class – Week 3

Each week I will highlight a few of the top experts for the week. Here are the experts that deserve a “gold star” for Week 3 based on their cumulative grades for all players they touted this week.

#1) DailyFantasyNerd (Score: 5.83) finishes in the top two for the second consecutive week with four out of six selections receiving a grade of an “A” or better. They were led by selections of Charles Sims, T.Y. Hilton and were one of only two experts to select Terrelle Pryor.

#2) Rotoballer (Score: 4.33) comes in second place with three “A+” grades out of their nine selections including Marvin Jones, DeMarco Murray and was the other expert to recommend Terrelle Pryor.

#3) DailyFantasyCafe (Score: 3.81) posted a solid third place showing with seven out of their 16 selections receiving a grade of “B” or better. Key selections included Charles Sims, Doug Baldwin, Zach Miller and the Chiefs defense.

Sometimes there is just that one class that you excel in. In this section, I will highlight who the top experts were at each position for Week 3.

Study Time – Week 3

If we are going to give a gold star to the top experts of the week, we also need to determine which experts might need to put in some extra study time to pull up those grades. Here are the Week 3 experts that didn’t make the grade this week.

  • FantasyCruncher (Score: 0.88) finished at the bottom in their first week of grading with five “F” grades out of their eight selections including players Stefon Diggs, Phillip Dorsett and Ben Roethlisberger.
  • ScoutFantasy (Score: 1.25) had five of their eight selection receive a “D” or worse this week. They were let down by Ryan Fitzpatrick, Stefon Diggs and Phillip Dorsett.

Extra Credit – Week 3

In this section, I will look to give some extra credit to experts that received an A+ grade for a player that they recommended when very few other experts did. Week 3 extra credit goes to the following…

A+ – Matthew Stafford (FakePigskin)
A+ – Christine Michael (FakePigskin)
A+ – Terrelle Pryor (DailyFantasyNerd, Rotoballer)
A+ – Doug Baldwin (DailyRoto-Mayo, DailyFantasyCafe)
