Andy Behrens breaks down the rather unfortunate moments that caused some spectacular fantasy losses in Week 3
ANDY BEHREN: Oh, that's right, it's that time again. This is the segment where we talk about your absolutely gutting, heartbreaking, week 3 fantasy losses. This right here, is fantasy bad beats.
Monday Night Football; a highly anticipated game between the Ravens and the Chiefs. It gave us a million different ways to lose, and lose you did. Uh, many of you lost because Harrison Butker, coming off a legendary performance in week 2, had a miserable night in prime time. Missed an extra point, missed a field goal attempt, nearly missed various other extra points.
Ugly game from Butker, perhaps you lost because Lamar Jackson came on for a final play at the end of the game, and went into victory formation, even though he was losing by two touchdowns, or maybe you just lost like thousands of us did because Patrick Mahomes is wickedly good, unreasonably good, impossibly good, and he just piled up fantasy points. Didn't even necessarily throw it guys that could help you, right? He was throwing to offensive lineman, he was throwing to full backs, ugh, but he just piled up an enormous stack of fantasy points, and he wrecked you.
But, I think, our primary bad beat for this week has to come from D.K. Metcalf. Now, if you've invested in Seahawks this season, you've got Tyler Lockett, you've got Metcalf, you've got Russell Wilson, things are looking good. You're feeling pretty good about that. But, in week 3, D.K. Metcalf gave us a pretty ugly moment and our worst of the bad beats this week comes to us from Matt Moore, a former dolphins and Panthers quarterback, checking in. Hey Matt.
He says my buddy is a huge Seahawks fan, lost because he had Russ and D.K. Lost that TD Leon Lett style. That's miserable. OK, like I don't feel that bad for tater time here, because, you know, you do have Russell Wilson, that's going to be helpful for the balance of the season, he's having an historic year, this is absolutely ridiculous, but, D.K. Metcalf did indeed absolutely roast a Dallas defensive back. Had a walk in touchdown, but he shouldn't have literally attempted to walk in, he did, he got stripped from behind, it went out the back of the end zone, it became a touchback. D.K. Of course made up for it later, scored a touchdown, Russell Wilson finished with, I don't know, 5, 6, 10 touchdowns, whatever it was, but he loss that one to Metcalf and in so doing, you lost your fantasy match-up, and that, is an absolutely horrible way to lose.
Remember, next week when things don't go your way, things take a horrible turn, perhaps on Monday night, hit up your friends at Fantasy Football Live. Use the #FFLBadBeats.
