Fantasy Manager update: We have points! Our team has been working hard on collecting points over the past three weeks. User teams now have a season total of points tallied up through the three weeks of action. For the time being, you can follow you and your friend’s teams on the league leaderboard as we continue to work on this product. Thank you for your continued support and good luck in the next game week!

With that out of the way, let me, Alex Malchow, & us take a look at some key players to consider in your lineup this week!

Start ‚Em Week 2

QB Jakeb Sullivan (2,900,000 GC)

Sullivan is leading the way in passing yards through three weeks as he has the Berlin Thunder at 2-1. This week, Sullivan will be up against a fierce Vienna Vikings defense, in a classic matchup of a top offense taking on a top defense. Sullivan has been excellent this year finding Aaron Jackson, Robin Wilzeck, and Bias Kouanda often, putting up 873 yards and nine touchdowns, leading the ELF in both categories. If the Thunder offensive line can protect him against a great Vikings defensive line, look for him to have a big day in Vienna. 

RB Dwayne Obi (1,900,000 GC)

Obi was unstoppable against a tough Rhein Fire defense, rushing for 149 yards and two scores, including a 39-yarder. The powerful running back is primed to raise his stock even more as the red-hot Madrid Bravos travel to take on the Cologne Centurions. After gashing the Rhein Fire’s defense behind good blocking from his offensive line, I expect Obi to do more of the same against Cologne, especially as new Madrid quarterback Steven Duncan adjusts to a new team and offensive system. 

RB Justin Rodney (2,000,00 GC)

The German talent scored two touchdowns last week and had 104 total yards on only 12 touches against the Prague Lions. As Tomiwa Oyewo nurses an injury, the veteran Rodney has stepped up in a big way for Munich, creating explosive plays for their offense week in and week out. Sunday afternoon, the Ravens and Raiders will face off in Innsbruck, I expect Rodney to take full advantage of far more touches in what should be a very competitive game between two teams desperate to get back into the playoffs. 


Sit ‚Em Week 3

QB Jadrian Clark (4,100,000 GC)

The 2023 MVP looked human for the first time in a while, as the Rhein Fire lost to the Madrid Bravos last Saturday. Clark threw two interceptions as injuries to his receiving core have slowed down one of the league’s top passing attacks to a snail’s pace. Clark held onto the ball, searching for receivers, which led to the Bravos sacking him often and putting the Rhein Fire in tough third and long situations. Unless Clark can get some more help this week, I expect Paris to take Madrid’s game plan and hold Clark and Rhein Fire to under 300 yards passing. 

WR Matt Cole Chafin (3,000,00 GC)a

Former NFL receiver Matt Cole will make his highly anticipated debut in the ELF this week for the Wrocław Panthers. However, the Panthers recently made a change at the quarterback position, bringing in veteran John Uribe. I anticipate Uribe and Cole will need at least a week or two before the two can build some chemistry. However, I will be keeping one eye on Cole to see what he can do in his first ELF action and could be looking to add the speedy ball catcher in later weeks.

WR Willie Patterson (3,200,000)

Patterson was the MVP of last week, racking up 110 receiving yards, as he was huge for the Bravos in pulling off the upset win over the Rhein Fire. But I don’t see it continuing this week, as new quarterback Steven Duncan will be searching for a rhythm after just arriving in the Spanish capital a few days ago. I don’t expect much of a passing game to be thrown together by the Bravos in only a few practices, so Patterson will not be in my lineup come Saturday.
