FanDuel’s Fantasy Football Writers League Week 4 Report: Nathan Zegura is headed to Vegas
Considering the writers league consists of a ton of guys who know their fantasy football cold, it was only a matter of time before someone won a seat in Vegas and a chance at $40,000. And Nathan Zegura of The Fantasy Consultant did that this week.
By the end of the Monday Night Football game, Zegura sat on top of the overall scoreboard with 146.94 points. Zegura will now head to Vegas on the weekend of Dec. 4-5 to compete for $40,000.
As for the rest of the experts, this was a brutal week, which tends to happen when Michael Vick drops to the ground like a shot dog early in the Eagles/Redskins game and Chris Johnson doesn’t do much. Needless to say the results this week would have been a lot different if Vick had actually played.
One special note for the writers, even though Zegura has won a seat in the finals in Vegas, that does not mean that the contest has concluded. The writer who places the highest – without actually winning the FFFC contest overall – still gets a free trip to Vegas and $500. Chet Gresham of Razzball remains the writers league leader, having finished in 8th place during Week 2.
