Big 12 fantasy football: Week 4

We all knew this was going to be a brutal week.

With Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU and Iowa State all on bye weeks, the lineups in our Big 12 Fantasy Football league underwent some serious turmoil. The three of us had to make lots of moves just to put together a starting lineup.

When it was all over on Saturday, Brandon won for the second week in a row with 116 points. The tandem of Lache Seastrunk and Johnathan Gray, the Big 12’s top two rushers, took care of business, and Texas Tech’s defense and special teams made major contributions.

Sadly, my team came up eight points short of BC due to a rough outing for Baker Mayfield and the fact I chose the wrong free-agent tight end -- should’ve gone with Kansas’ Jimmay Mundine -- but this week proved your best bet is rolling with as many Baylor players as possible.

We saw four performances of 25 points or more this week. One came from Gray’s breakout night against K-State, and the other three came from Bryce Petty, Antwan Goodley and the Bears defense.

Trotter had Petty, the Big 12’s top fantasy player in week 4, but finished third with 80 points due to a quiet week from most of his starters. Brandon is now leading the league with two wins, while my team has scored the most points through four weeks with a total of 437.
