Week three is in the books. That went fairly well for a lot of you, though the mid-table matchups tended to throw several of you guys off. Only one person, brometheus, managed to crack double-digits, leading the way with 11 points.
The bonuses went largely untouched, with only four of you managing to get two crucial points to add on to your weekly score. For those who are wondering, here were the bonuses:
Most Shots on Target: Liverpool (10)
Player w/ Most Points: Sturridge / Giroud (3)
Most saves by keeper: Howard / De Gea (7)
Many of you went with some obvious choices like Manchester City for the SOT bonus. I wasn't expecting Howard or De Gea to lead the saves category, but that's how it goes sometimes.
Also, I have made the necessary corrections to the bonus from last week, but to save my sanity, I'm going to just post up the total standings and put your week three points in parentheses.
STANDINGS THROUGH WEEK THREE:

Zen Garden - 24 Points (9)

So there are your Week Three standings. I said that this would be a four week contest, and we are sticking to that. However, the bonus round for Week Four will be a little more plentiful. I also have not decided on potential tiebreakers, and while I would rather use the highest point total from an individual week, I don't think it's fair to say that now. If you guys want to roll with that, I'm okay with it because, outside of Zen and Brometheus, no one has cracked double digits (Gylfi, your bonus in round two brought you down to nine, FYI) so it could be decided in the last round.
I'll put up a poll and let you guys decide.
There are no fixtures posted in this, obviously. I will be posting the fixture list on Tuesday.
