BIGBOY! (95.64) vs Pack Attack (61.36)
The two lowest scoring teams in the league coming into the week and they didn’t disappoint as neither team could get to 100 points! There isn’t much more to say about this one other then Pack Attack has a terrible team and is the only remaining winless team in the league and BIGBOY! who moves to 3-2 on the season has had the easiest schedule in the league through 5 weeks. The good news for BIGBOY! is the fact that they are somehow 3-2. They right in the think of things and now need to get their guys playing better because to get back to the playoffs they are going to eventually need their team to score some points.
16hrs Ahead of You!! (158.03) vs PackerFANatic7 (88.12)
Sometimes it only takes that first one and then things start clicking and that seems to be the case for 16hrs as they have now won 2 straight games after starting the season 0-3. It isn’t just the fact they have won these last two games but it is also the way in which they have won them. They beat U Don’t Know in a shootout last week and then this week went out and put up their highest point total of the season in a dominating win over PackerFANatic7 (1-4). They had 6 positions score over 15 points and 3 of those scored over 27 (T. Lockett, D. Henry & L. Fournette) that is going to win you a lot of games if they can keep up even close to that level of production. They now have a chance next week to get back to .500 on the season. PackerFANatic7 is struggling to find the right combination of players and you know it is a bad week when your DEF and D player are two of the top 3 scoring players on your team. It took a 26 point effort from D. Adams last night to make this one look somewhat respectable. They have got some work to do to climb out of this hole!
U Don’t Know (144.31) vs Big Papa (121.23)
U Don’t Know stops their 2 game losing streak by coming away with a big win! They had a tough loss last week to 16hrs and I was wondering how they might respond but they came out strong and had one of their better weeks of the season thanks to strong performances from S. Diggs (24.10) and B. Hall (24.47). Big Papa falls to 3-2 on the season despite playing a solid game. I had said earlier that in most cases how this team does will be dependent on how the combination of Mahomes and Kupp play. This however was a scenario where they needed a little more from the supporting cast as despite Kupp and Mahomes scoring a combined 56 points they still lost. They may need a few more guys to step up if they want to become a serious threat.
HHH (112.60) vs Bossman (89.90)
HHH comes away with the upset win to move to 2-3 on the season. This was a big one for HHH as they were coming off their first win of the season last week and really wanted to be able to build on that as they work their way back towards the .500 mark! This wasn’t their best week from a scoring perspective but they got a monster 38 point performance from A. Ekeler and then just enough from the rest of their team to come away with the W. Bossman came into this game having won three straight and had the look of one of the better teams in the league. One loss doesn’t change that and this is one of the deepest teams in the league. They will be fine moving forward.
Rapids Plungers (154.70) vs DaUnderdog (129.88)
Rapids Plungers came into this week really looking for that signature win and what better way to do it then against the reigning champ who oh by the way was undefeated through 4 games. Rapids Plungers got it done thanks in large part to 4 players, J. Hurts (20.85), G. Davis (33.55), J. Wilson Jr (20.60), and T. Kelce (32.25). That is a lot of points right there! It seems to me that for this team to get to where they want to go and ultimately battle for a championship that G. Davis is going to be a key part of that. Kelce is going to get his points and at this point I think you can say the same about J. Hurts but it is going to be the “other” guys that need step up and G. Davis feels like that wildcard. DaUnderdog hasn’t dealt with a loss for quite some time as they fall to 4-1 on the season. They had a solid game thanks to J. Allen and his 43 points but in the end they needed more from their supporting cast. As I mentioned, this is a new territory for DaUnderdog and it will be interesting to see how they respond next week.
teamAlaska (144.24) vs pack slayer (88.04)
How does that saying go? There is nothing certain in this world except death and taxes AND teamAlaska scoring between 140 and 150 points? It is actually quite amazing at this point what they have been able to do. I don’t have the time to look into this but I would bet that we likely haven’t seen a start to a season quite this good / consistent probably ever. I know we have had teams with strong starts in the past but what makes this unique is the consistency and we aren’t talking about consistently scoring 110 points. They are consistently scoring at a high point total. Check this out.. we have played 5 weeks of football and teamAlaska has had the following point totals… 144.36, 140.02, 151.64, 144.37 & 144.24. They have had three weeks of 144 points! That is impressive and to go along with that they are the top team in the league and the only remaining undefeated team! How long can they keep this streak going? pack slayer falls to 2-3 on the season and never really had a chance in this one. This was an opportunity for a statement type of win instead they did the opposite and proved they aren’t ready to compete with the big dogs right now!
Starrfavrerodg (130.48) vs Sportsfreak (116.11)
Starrfavrerodg comes from behind to get the big win in this one and move to 2-3 on the season. It hasn’t been easy so for for Starrfavrerodg as they have had some games come right down to the wire and lost (last week) but this week they were able to come out on the winning side of that thanks to a monster 33 point game from J. Jacobs last night AND the fact that D. Waller hurt his hamstring early in the game and didn’t score a single point for Sportsfreak. This one must feel good! Feel good that is unless of course you are Sportsfreak who really had to like their chances for the W going into the night. Sportsfreak has now fallen to 2-3 on the season and have lost their last 3 games. They will look to get it going next week against U Don’t Know!
That’s it for this week everyone. Have a great week!
