Congratulations to Ultimate Anyone? for winning the Week 3 award, Lovable Losers: This will allow the winner of this award to guarantee one win from any week for the team they picked to win the least. (If your Lovable Loser has no picked wins remaining, then you'll choose from the next-least-winning team.) That team, for UA?, is the Cardinals. He chose them in Week 6 over the Falcons and again in Week 9 over the 49ers.

The Default Option for this award is to guarantee the Week 9 pick over the 49ers. He may reject the Default Option by otherwise declaring how he would like to use the award. Any changes to the use of this award must be declared before this Thursday's kickoff.

Additionally, he, along with Kid Rock, Funemployed, A695814, The Arbitrary, rekrap, & Bingboing have won the "Change One Future Pick" award. The use of this award may be declared at anytime before the kickoff of the game it affects. It expires at kickoff of the final game of the season.

Finally, an additional award or two:

Pat on the Back™ award:
Way to go, twig93, Kid Rock, & rekrap. You wisely chose to use the COFP award to change your Steelers pick to the 49ers. You picked up an extra win! Nice job!

Salt in Your Wounds™ award:
Hey, R Daneel Olivaw, not only are your original picks doing two games better than your final picks, but you would've won an award this week & could've used that to do even better!

Way to go, Vorian Atreides. You bungled your COFP award by using it to change your Colts pick to the Falcons. You picked up an extra loss! Nice job!

Way to go, silentassassin, Funemployed, Patience, & jesusislord. You bungled your COFP award by using it to change your Saints pick to the Seahawks. You picked up an extra loss! Nice job! Even worse, now I've run out of salt for your Margaritae, so I added extra ice.

Here are the week 3 standings:

It paid off to pick early!!

I will override the default of my Week 3 prize, and chose to lock in Arizona's Week 6 victory over Atlanta.
