SEC fantasy challenge update

We have a new leader in our SEC fantasy challenge.

Chris held a strong lead for most of the season, but thanks to a five-game winning streak the Young Guns have officially taken the lead with a 6-5 record. Over the Hill is now 5-6.

It was an exciting week for the challenge as the Young Guns won 124-115.

Chris might have watched Joe Adams deliver the play of the year on his sizzling punt return against Tennessee, but I had the fortune of watching his teammate, running back Dennis Johnson, steal the show with a 25-point effort for the Young Guns. Also, Aaron Murray's 26 points from four passing touchdowns weren't too bad, either.

Chris had his bright spots with Trent Richardson registering 20 points and Connor Shaw getting 23, despite having just 81 passing yards. Those rushing touchdowns are crucial.

What keeps holding Chris back is the lack of production from Alshon Jeffery. He is getting swallowed up by defenses, and had another one-point performance with just 17 yards on two catches against Florida.

Chris could make some lineup changes this week, but I'm more than content with the guys I have on my team. A win this week for the Young Guns clinches the fantasy title.

I'd be lying if I said I didn't feel pretty confident about my chances.
