Black Shoe Diaries Big Ten Fantasy Challenge: Week Two

It was a banner weekend for the Fighting Butts (that's what I'm calling Chad's team).

Russ Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

As everyone so clearly predicted last week, Chad is the current leader in our league. His team was mostly fueled by the big games from Wes Lunt and Josh Ferguson of Illinois, with Akeel Lynch, CJ Beathard (Iowa) and Jake Butt (Michigan) putting up big fantasy numbers as well.

Now that the weekend's games have passed, it's time for the weekly transactions. Each team is given the chance to add/drop up to two players on their roster, and they may shuffle who is on the bench (and not earning points) whenever they like. The order for the transactions is based on who is currently last place in points. This week, that was Cari. Here are this week's transactions.

Cari: Dropped Ty Isaac (Michigan) and Adam Breneman (PSU), added Josh Hicks (Rutgers) and Ricky Jones (Indiana)

Jared: Dropped Sean Neurenberger (OSU) and Mike Gesicki (PSU), added Jack Willoughby (OSU) and Aaron Burbridge (MSU)

Bill: No transactions

Nick: Dropped Curtis Samuel (OSU), added LeShun Daniels Jr (Iowa)

Chad: No transactions, but moved Braxton Miller (OSU) to the starting lineup

Here are the standings following week one.
