There are big changes this week in the Life Pointe Fantasy Football leagues.
The Ritz has been dethroned by yours truly (on points and tied record) after he lost to the ghost of The Fuser Heads. Jesse’s unmanned team is winning despite his absence of a starting quarterback. Pastor Trav dropped his second in a row, this time to Bachrach after winning 4 straight. Now his record stands at 4-6 and he is behind in points to both Bachrach and the Fuser Heads. The Turkey Buzzards have now taken two in a row, this time convincingly beating Paul’s Skins. That makes the Buzzards the second hottest team in the league.
This week, my team was up against the best team in the league on paper. The Dead Skins have scored the most points this year and despite the record has been the most consistent scorer. Thanks to monster games from Boldin, T Jones, H Ward, Adai, Elam, and Carolina Defense, I had one of my best games of the season and won the game by over 30 points. The standings have been shaken up in a big way.
The new improved standings are now:
#1 Citizen Cane 7-3
#2 Ritz 7-3
#3 Fuser Heads 7-3
#4 Dead Skins 6-4
#5 Bachrach 4-6
#6 TJ’s Big Doggs 4-6
#7 Skins 3-7
#8 Turkey Buzzards 2-8
Due to the new league developments, we now have a clear picture of the playoffs. The Citizen Cane Blog can now project the following teams to make the playoffs: The Citizen Cane, Ritz, and the Ghost Rider Fuser Heads. In all likelihood, The Dead Skins will make the playoffs. However, if The Dead Skins loses his last 3 games, and either Bachrach or Big Doggs wins 3 straight, either one of those could make the playoffs. Technically, by math only the Turkey Buzzards are eliminated since they cannot win more than 5 games and the 4th place team already has 6 wins.
In Vegas Pickem, it appears Pastor Trav has given up because this is the second week he has not completed his picks. That leaves the race between Paul and yours truly, though I currently have a pretty strong lead in the race.
In Second Chance, Alex drew even with Chris (The Manxiacs) for first place, and I was able to gain on the first place by one point (now 8 points back of first) on my 11 of 16 correct picks. The big winner was Paul who got only 1 incorrect pick (and one push since Philly and Cincy tied) and 14 correct picks. RacerX (James) had a great week as well with 12 correct picks.
