Big Ten's ultimate football All-Star team

Eat, sleep, breathe, fantasy football. That seems to be the order of life necessities for the average football fan at this time of the year. I admittingly fall into that category at times throughout the NFL season.

In fact, as I was sorting through my email this morning, I noticed my inbox was littered with trade offers, advice columns and league updates. As I peaked at these trade offers and scanned some of the player stats, I got to thinking: What would a Big Ten All-Star Team look like after three weeks?

My family plays Big Ten fantasy football..greatest idea I ever had.

Matt Anderson on 9/18/2013 @ 9:24pm EST Said:

I get the fantasy point thing, though I’d take Melvin Gordon over any running back in the Big Ten hands down.

Mitch Sweeney on 9/18/2013 @ 9:27pm EST Said:

I don’t need to dream. Playing a Big ten only league. I have 3 of the 9 top performers. Could of had 4 but I went with the homer OSU pick for defense.

Bill on 9/18/2013 @ 9:49pm EST Said:

Allen Robinson has 405 receiving yards.

Adam on 9/18/2013 @ 11:18pm EST Said:

Melvin Gordon 37 477 12.9 80 (TD) 4

OK, a team with 7 offensive players; no defense. I doubt they’d be highly competitive.

Eric on 9/19/2013 @ 2:21am EST Said:

Melvin Gordon for sure, where is he?!?!?!?!?!?!?!

    Sean Merriman, BTN.com web editor on 9/19/2013 @ 12:18pm EST Said:

    No receptions hurt his “points” value.

Carol on 9/19/2013 @ 12:27pm EST Said:

Melvin Gordon needs to be there – for sure!!!!
