After nine disheartening months, it's finally time for the 2020 MLBPPWorld Fantasy Football season. No matter what the season has in store, it was a joy to have the draft experience once again.

Past Champions:
2015: GoTwins24
2016: Prediction
2017: ZeroGibson13
2018: AgentP
2019: GoTwins24

Team Storylines:
Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34)
Kerryon My Wayward Son missed the playoffs in the final week of 2019, losing on a Monday night Chris Carson touchdown. They will be looking to avenge that in 2020, hoping to return to the championship game for the first time in five seasons. They are led by Alvin Kamara, Mike Evans, and George Kittle.

Team Griffith (jag123jg)
As of 2020, Team Griffith is yet to make the postseason in league history, falling on the shortest end of a highly-contested playoff race in 2019. They will look to avenge that with a squad led by Dalvin Cook, Deandre Hopkins, and Travis Kelce.

Run It Back (GoTwins24)
As it was an odd year last year, Run It Back claimed the league title despite a 1-3 start to the season. However, the team finished near the cellar in both 2016 and 2018 and are hoping to avoid that dubious trend this time around. They selected Saquon Barkley, Julio Jones, and Tyreek Hill with their first three selections.

You've Been Juiced! (LetsGoMets77)
Remarkably, You've Been Juiced! was granted the top overall pick for the third conseuctive season. In 2018, they chose Le'veon Bell with that pick (although they made up for it with the signing of James Conner), and have now chosen Christian McCaffrey for the second straight season. They have the honor of four straight playoff appearances, but they are yet to win a title. They will hope to finally obtain the elusive silverware in 2020, led by the aforementioned McCaffrey, Kenny Golladay, and Patrick Mahomes.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115)
The Detroit Phantoms suffered a heartbreaking loss in the championship last season, mostly due to Derrick Henry's 40-point outburst as he sought the 2019 rushing title. It was still a season to be proud of, as they came roaring back from a 1-3 start to reach the postseason on the final day of the season. This time around, they turn to Ezekiel Elliot, Kenyan Drake, and Chris Godwin as their big-three to lead them to championship glory.

Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James)
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad suffered the curse of the top overall seed last season, losing in the first round of the postseason despite a 12-1 finish. The team was the last team to be defeated in 2019, and they hope to repeat that once more. To do that, they will rely on Derrick Henry, Nick Chubb, and Juju Smith-Schuster.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP)
The 2018 champion suffered a bit of a setback last season, but that is the usual trend for defending champions in this league. They were snakebitten by bad luck (no pun intended?) when Luck retired in the middle of the 2019 draft, and they suffered from some bad luck again this season. They accidentally selected Antonio Gibson in the fourth round, but he may prove to be a sleeper this year. Before Gibson, they selected Miles Sanders, Josh Jacobs, and DJ Moore.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam)
The Aodgers fell off a bit in 2019, being absent from the playoff picture for most of the race. They will look to offset that this season with a trio of Davante Adams, Joe Mixon, and Chris Carson. There is a stigma attached to the 10th pick of the draft, but if it turns out that the Aodgers used the snake format sufficiently, they could turn the last pick of the first round into a benefit.

Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13)
One of the newest professional athletes in American sports returned to the league for another season, looking to put a forgettable 2019 campaign behind him. The 6'6 lefty is known for striking out batters on the diamond, but his fantasy abilities are also almost unmatched. Last season was the first time he finished sub-.500 in league history, so he will be looking to avenge that with a core of Michael Thomas, Austin Ekeler, and Amari Cooper.

TBD Team (PhilliesFan134)
PhilliesFan134 makes his return to the MLBPPWorld fantasy league after a year-absence. They missed the playoffs by just a game that year, so they will be hoping to finally return in 2020. PhilliesFan134 is known for fantasy acumen, so he will likely always be a force to be reckoned with in the league. This year, TBD Team is led by upstart rookie Clyde Edwards-Helaire, Aaron Jones, and Lamar Jackson.

I tried to include the draft summary from ESPN on here, but the screenshots were too large, so check out the website if you'd like to see the full recap. As an author's note, I can't wait to return for the fourth season of fantasy recaps, no matter the fate of the season!

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 1 RECAP

Run It Back (GoTwins24) 107.5
You've Been Juiced! (LGM77) 107.5

Summary:
The rematch of last season's semifinal matchup came to a shocking stalemate Monday Night. Although Run It Back started off strong thanks to David Johnson and Tyreek Hill. After Thursday, they led 30-20 and felt pretty comfortable with their lead. As the week went on, their lead remained comfortable, but they noticed that their players were struggling to find the endzone. In fact, David Johnson's touchdown early in Thursday's game was the only touchdown the team scored, excluding Carson Wentz's two passing touchdowns. This would come back to hurt them as their point total was limited to tied for second-lowest in the league. Julio Jones nearly hit the 20-point mark, but he struggled to find the end zone, repeating a common theme from 2019. Saquon Barkley's performance was by far the most damning as if he reached double-digits, Run It Back would have won. You've Been Juiced was struggling through most of Sunday due to the struggles of Odell Beckham, Le'Veon Bell, and Jordan Howard. Luckily for them, the QB-RB pairing of Patrick Mahomes and Christian McCaffrey may be the league's best, and they proved this by combining for 45 points. They trailed by nearly 20 heading into Monday night's game, but Darius Slayton played the hero, scoring 25 points and tying the game on the last offensive play for New York. Unfortunately, it wasn't enough to give them a result, but they will take a tie over a loss.

Los Angeles Aodgers (KFPC) 137.5
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 125.5

Summary:
The Aodgers started the season on a good note after an underwhelming 4-9 season in 2019. They were anchored by several star performers, but especially with Davante Adams's 34-point showing. Josh Allen proved his worth as a potentially elite fantasy QB with 27 points. Additionally, Chris Carson excelled in the passing game for 21. They also had several solid performances, specifically from Stefon Diggs and New England's defense. They also received 64 points from their bench, which appears to be a strength so far. If depth proves to be a strength, the Aodgers could be primed for a bounceback year. Team Griffith suffered bad fantasy luck once again in the season opener, falling despite a solid point total. The team "reunited" Deshaun Watson and Deandre Hopkins quite successfully as the pair combined for 42 points. Their running backs performed well for the most part, with all except Kerryon Johnson scoring double-digit totals. Johnson was definitely the weak spot in the lineup as he took a back seat to Adrian Peterson and D'Andre Swift. Team Griffith does not have many alternative RB options on the bench, so they may turn to Julian Edelman to replace Johnson at the flex. San Francisco's defense was much worse than expected as the earliest-selected defensive unit only scored 2 points, which is concerning given their draft position. Aside from these negatives, Team Griffith may be able to chalk the loss up to an unlucky matchup.

Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 122.5
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 118

Summary:
Last season's top regular-season team won a comeback victory thanks to Juju Smith-Schuster and Derrick Henry. Juju dropped 21, benefitting from Big Ben's return, while the ever-reliable Derrick Henry scored 13.5. Although 13.5 seems low for King Henry, it is a respectable amount and was enough to scratch by. Russell Wilson may be putting together an MVP campaign, starting it off by scoring 30 points. Matt Ryan, the team's backup, also nearly touched the 30-point mark. The Cig Squad may arguably possess the best QB-pairing in the league with these performances. There were some concerns, specifically Nick Chubb's lack of volume. Chubb shared carries with Kareem Hunt and only scored 4.5 points, much lower than expected. It is still early in the season, so Chubb may be able to break out against a weaker defense. Aside from their struggles at the RB2 position, the Cig Squad appear to be primed for another excellent regular season. The Atomic Pickles will be disappointed to lose, but their performance was not poor by any means. Josh Jacobs may be a fantasy superstar, scoring 3 touchdowns and recording 33 points this week. Kyler Murray could also cement himself as a top-5 fantasy QB if he builds off his 26-point showing. They will regret their decision to play Chris Herndon over Dallas Goedert, which cost them 19 points and the victory. Although, if Miles Sanders was healthy, they may have won the game. Sanders may play next week, giving the Pickles a huge boost.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 123.5
Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 131

Summary:
Kerryon My Wayward Son got some revenge on the Detroit Phantoms for taking their playoff spot in 2019. Ironically, while Kerryon My Wayward Son lost their playoff spot to the Phantoms in the last Monday night regular season game, they beat the Phantoms in this one. Melvin Gordon provided the walkoff moment, scoring a late touchdown around midnight. Cam Newton's return was exciting to follow as the former QB1 scored 25 points in his New England debut. Alvin Kamara was also a fantasy backbone, leaving Cool Brees for the first time and winning this one for his new team. The team has a surplus of strong QBs, so it will be interesting to see if there are any takers for one of them. George Kittle also suffered an injury this week, so the team will have to monitor his status. Despite this potential issue, it was a victory worthy of celebration. According to FantasyPros, the 2019 runner-up Detroit Phantoms are the league's favorite, but they were upset by a fellow Lions fan this week. They lost despite excellent showings from both Calvin Ridley and Ezekiel Elliot, both of whom nearly reached the 30-point mark. Their victory hopes were limited by solid but not great performances from Chris Godwin and Kenyan Drake, who combined for 23 points. At the end of 2019, the pair could be expected to go for 40 points or more. Ultimately though, the team's biggest issue is at TE as Hayden Hurst struggled. The Phantoms are in the market at the position, hoping to solidify an already strong roster.

Fresh Prince of Helaire (PhilliesFan134) 115
Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 91.5

Summary:
Fresh Prince of Helaire made a strong return to the league, beating the 2017 champ by a wide margin. Their namesake shined in his debut, nearly hitting 20 points- an impressive debut total. Lamar Jackson continued his legendary fantasy run, recording 27 points despite being pulled from the third quarter. If the Ravens weren't as dominant, Lamar would probably score even more. The same logic applies to Mark Andrews, who scored 18.5 points despite being rested in the fourth quarter as well. The team has some concerns at WR after the week as none of them surpassed the double-digit mark this week. It is still early, however, and the receiving core has plenty of time to get going. Overall, it was a solid victory for Fresh Prince of Helaire, who would have won by a bigger margin had the receiving core performed up to expectations. In contrast, Cool Brees scored the least amount of points in the league this week- the only team to score under 100. This was despite a 28-point showing from Adam Thielen, who appears to be a bright spot in the lineup. Namesake Drew Brees also surpassed the double-digit mark, although he was one of the lower scoring QBs this week. Shockingly, Michael Thomas only scored 2.5 points, but this was due to an injury. Hopefully it is not too serious and Thomas can solidify the receiving core. The running back position is quite a concern as neither Austin Akeler nor Devin Singletary reached the double-digit mark. They have plenty of backups, but they will need to receive stronger showings from such an important position. The absence of Alvin Kamara is definitely felt by Cool Brees, but there is still time to solidify the position.

MLBPPWORLD Fantasy Week 2 Recap:

Run It Back (GoTwins24) 123
Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 156

Summary:
It was Kerryon My Wayward Son's week to shine after the best performance of the week. In fact, 156 points is one of the highest point totals since the 2-flex format was adopted in 2019. It was clear that they were in for a big game after Kareem Hunt scored 22 points Thursday night, but it wasn't clear that they would score almost 160 points until late in the week. D.K. Metcalf and Alvin Kamara combined to score 49.5 points in the primetime games, which was way more than expected. Melvin Gordon and Mike Evans ensured that these dominant performances were not absolutely necessary by scoring over 15. Aaron Rodgers entered the team's starting lineup with a solid showing of 18.5 points, although the team would have remarkably crossed the 170-mark had they kept Cam Newton in the starting spot. With these early results, Kerryon My Wayward Son appears to be primed for a return to the postseason. In contrast, Run It Back's season appears to be over after they lost second-overall pick Saquon Barkley for the season. As it currently stands, they only have two healthy runningbacks on the roster, but both of those backs have significant injury histories. If it wasn't for Tyler Higbee's dominant 3-touchdown game, they would have underwhelmed once again. The only bright spot was Terry McLaurin, who bounced back from a subpar Week 1 to score over 20. Still, their roster has been decimated due to injuries, which makes a return to a championship highly unlikely.

Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 118.5
You've Been Juiced! (LGM77) 117

Summary:
The Ciq Squad has now won 14 out of their last 15 regular season games in a matchup that appears to have been closer than it should have been. They were propelled by Russell Wilson's heroics in what could be an MVP-campaign for him. Wilson scored over 30 for the second consecutive week. David Montgomery was a pleasant surprise thanks to a 19.5-point showing, and Nick Chubb rebounded for a strong 24.5 point game. These performances offset Derrick Henry's mediocre 8-point game. Allen Robinson and Juju Smith-Schuster were also mediocre, but the Cig Squad will hope that these were one-offs. They would have won more comfortably had they played Darren Waller, but they decided to bench him in case of a catastrophic performance. While they would have liked to have gotten additional points for playoff reasons, losing 20 points is not the end of the world for them. At 2-0, the Ciq Squad want to go on another unbeaten run for as long as possible. You've Been Juiced! remains winless amid a devastating injury to top overall pick Christian McCaffrey. McCaffrey will miss 4-6 weeks, which will be devastating. The team does not have many healthy RBs on the roster since as it currently stands, they would have to start J.K. Dobbins and Benny Snell next week. The main positive from the week was that Odell Beckham Jr. may be a reliable option this year thanks to a 15-point performance, but it may be too early to tell. This week's waiver wire will be crucial for them to have any chance at extending their league-best playoff streak.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 118.5
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 151

Summary:
In most other weeks, the Phantoms would have been the highest scorer of the week, but Kerryon My Wayward Son claimed that distinction by five points. Still, the Phantoms avenged an unlucky loss in a dominant win. Dak Prescott was their leading scorer with a remarkable 39 points in a thrilling win against Atlanta. Actually, the Falcons-Cowboys offensive outburst was huge for the Phantoms since Calvin Ridley scored 25.5, Ezekiel Elliot scored 18, and Hayden Hurst scored 15.5. When a team has four players involved in the highest-scoring game of the week, it usually bodes well for them. As it stands, Kenyan Drake is the biggest concern, but they can replace him if necessary. This performance was also in spite of Chris Godwin's absence, making it even more impressive. The Phantoms could be poised for another run to the championship, this time without a 1-3 record as an obstacle. Team Griffith started off strong thanks to Raheem Mostert's 80-yard touchdown, but this luck was reversed when Mostert left the game due to injury. Most of their players performed well, with the exception of Todd Gurley and T.Y. Hilton. Gurley's struggles were surprising since most involved in that game had excellent weeks. Hilton has struggled so far this season and has scored only 10.5 points, a definite cause for concern. Most importantly, Team Griffith drafted San Francisco's defense in the hope that they would perform up to their 2019-standard, but injuries to Nick Bosa and Solomon Thomas have put this in doubt. An 0-2 start may be difficult to reverse with a league that appears to be extremely competitive.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 126
Fresh Prince of Helaire (PhilliesFan134) 110.5

Summary:
The Los Angeles Aodgers are the third unbeaten team remaining, and they can thank Buffalo's offense for that. Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs combined for 58 points, nearly half of the entire team's total. Chris Carson was also notable, scoring over 15. Aside from these performances, no other player really stood out, although Joe Mixon hit the double-digit mark despite his team trailing for most of the game. Courtland Sutton will miss the remainder of the season due to injury, so the team may look to acquire another flex option. Davante Adams also appeared to be injured, but he was most likely removed from Green Bay's win for precuationary reasons. After finishing last in 2019, the Aodgers must be thrilled with their deserved 2-0 start. Fresh Prince of Helaire dropped their first game of the season despite Aaaron Jones's dominant 42-point week. Diontae Johnson was excellent as well with a 19-point game. The team's Ravens-duo was a bit underwhelming by their usual standard, since Andrews and Jackson normally combine for around 40+ points instead of their 19.5 this week. Had they played Leonard Fournette over Zack Moss or Emmanuel Sandards, they would have won, but they did not expect Fournette to have such an impact. Fournette's resurgence may be a positive sign going forward as he can patch a hole in the team's flex positions. Ultimately, they will be disappointed to have lost with a 42-point scorer, but there are some positive signs going forward.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 116.5
Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 97.5

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles won their first game of the season in comfortable fashion. Like many this week, their QB was their highest scorer. Kyler Murray scored 31 points, his second week above the 25-point mark. Miles Sanders's entry to the lineup did not disappoint as he scored 17 despite a poor performance from the Eagles. D.J. Moore was also solid with a 16-point outing, a bounceback from a 7-point game last week. Indianapolis's defense overwhelmed Kirk Cousins for a 17-point showing. Indianapolis may emerge as a strong defense this season, and the Pickles have the benefit of them already being on their roster. Will Fuller suffered another injury this week, but the Pickles have a plethora of bench options available to replace him and potentially A.J. Green. Their TE position is also a concern as they only received 5.5 points from that position overall. Still, the Pickles will be happy with their 1-1 start. Cool Brees fell to 0-2 with a subpar game. They were the only team not to surpass the 100-point mark. Their leading scorer was James Robinson, who is emerging as one of the brightest fantasy options. Austin Ekeler also recovered from a poor showing to score 16, and it is clear that Justin Herbert will boost his fantasy stock. Their failure to score over 100 was a result of a poor performance from Rob Gronkowski, who has scored only 2 points all season. Adam Thielen was also much worse than last week, but this was mostly his QB's fault. Michael Thomas's injury has definitely impacted this team, so they will hope he returns quicker than expected from his injury. MT's injury has also clearly affected their namesake, who has scored only 14 points in both games this season. Cool Brees will need a quick return to form to recover from an 0-2 start.

Standings:
Alvin Lockhart Division
Kerryon My Wayward Son 2-0
Detroit Phantoms 1-1
Run It Back 0-1-1
You've Been Juiced! 0-1-1
Team Griffith 0-2

Gilgamesh Star Division
Los Angeles Aodgers 2-0
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad 2-0
Atomic Pickles 1-1
Fresh Prince of Helaire 1-1
Cool Brees 0-2

Power Rankings (Based on Total Points Scored):
1. Kerryon My Wayward Son (287)
2. Detroit Phantoms (274.5)
3. Los Angeles Aodgers (263.5)
4. Team Griffith (245)

MLBPPWORLD Fantasy Week 3 Recap

Run It Back (GoTwins24) 123
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 137

Summary:
Team Griffith won their first game of the season in a strong team effort. Runningbacks were their specialty this week as Mike Davis, Todd Gurley, and Dalvin Cook all scored around 15 points or more. Deandre Hopkins has had an excellent season, putting up another solid effort with 18 points. Although Deshaun Watson has been a bit disappointing by his standards, but he was still better than his opposition. The only poor performance came from Julian Edelman, who only scored 3 points. The team may be a little thin at the WR position, but that could be fixed if T.Y. Hilton breaks out. The team will be happy to have won their first game in convincing fashion. Run It Back's quest to repeat as champion may have turned into a quest to avoid last place. Their first two draft picks suffered significant injuries that will hinder the team for the rest of the year. Additionally, their QB position is the weakest in the league, and they will have to stream QBs for the rest of the year. Tyler Lockett was dominant this week, but his 32.5 point performance went to waste. Tyler Higbee did not play as well as he did last week, as if he did, the team may have pulled off their first win. Russell Gage also left his game due to injury, marking the sixth Run It Back player to be injured this season. With injuries and weaknesses at key positions, the even year drought will continue.

Fresh Prince of Helaire (PhilliesFan134) 99.5
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 133.5

Summary:
The Detroit Phantoms won their second game of the season in a dominant win. Their Dallas QB-RB1 duo was strong once again with a total of 40 points. James Conner also seems poised to prove doubters wrong, scoring 22 points. Calvin Ridley scored only 13.5 points, which is still a solid total, but lower than he's scored over the last two weeks. Chris Godwin returned from injury, only to return to the injured list once again. Godwin's health has been unusually questionable this season, which is a cause for concern going forward. Another concern is the struggles of Kenyan Drake, who is yet to score over 15 points this season. Drake came on in the second half of the season last year, so there is still some hope going forward. Ultimately, the Phantoms rode a strong QB-RB duo and James Conner's resurgence to a convincing win. Fresh Prince of Helaire lost in disappointing fashion, failing to score over 100 points. This was mostly due to Baltimore's shocking offensive woes- as Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews combined for 16.5 points. Leonard Fournette was also a shocker, scoring 25 less points than he did last week. Anytime a player scores zero points, the team that started him will be in trouble, which was the case for Fresh Prince of Helaire with Diontae Johnson. Aaron Jones did not score over 40 points this week, but he was good enough to score almost 15 points. Cooper Kupp was the team's leader with 20.5 points, by far his best performance of the season. Overall, if several low-performers would have avoided rough scoring outputs, Fresh Prince of Helaire would have made the game closer.

Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 126.5
You've Been Juiced! (LGM77) 138

Summary:
It was looking like You've Been Juiced would fall to 0-2, but enter Patrick Mahomes, whose remarkable 39 points carried his team to the win. The win also would not have been possible without waiver-wire pickup Darrell Henderson Jr., who delivered a strong 17.5-point performance. This offset other waiver pickup Dion Lewis's rough game. Michael Gallup also broke out this week with 22 points, nearly quadruple his Week 2 total. Their stream of Cleveland's defense was a wise move, as they would have lost had they stuck with Baltimore's defense against KC. Kenny Golladay's return was significant, providing 14 necessary points. Overall, You've Been Juiced! is now a perfectly-balanced 1-1-1, which is an impressive feat considering injuries to both their starting RBs. Kerryon My Wayward Son lost in spite of Alvin Kamara's continual dominant run. Kamara dropped 36.5 points, but his teammates could not follow his lead. The team may have a dilemma at QB since they lost after benching Aaron Rodgers for Cam Newton. Rodgers outscored Newton by 14, which would have offset the deficit. Mike Evans has delivered some of the oddest statlines this season, as his reception-touchdown ratio was 1:1 for the second week out of three. With Godwin injured, Evans will most likely have a more prominent role than this. Lastly, Melvin Gordon disappointed this week with only 5 points. The team will be disappointed to fall to 2-1, but they built up enough of a cushion in the first two weeks.

Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 147
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 145

Summary:
Cool Brees won the most exciting game of the week by a thin margin of only two points. They were powered by Drew Brees's strong Monday night game. Had Brees struggled like he did the first two weeks, they would have fallen to 1-3. They will be especially proud of their runningbacks, each of whom scored over 14. Ekeler and Robinson were the most electrifying, combining for over 50 points. The team's unsung hero(es), however, was Tampa's defense, which scored 20 key points in a dominant win. With just an average game, Cool Brees would have lost. There are still some overall concerns, like the WR2 without Michael Thomas and the TE position, but Cool Brees can celebrate a thrilling win. The Cig Squad dropped just their second regular-season game since the start of 2019, but it was hardly their fault. Russell Wilson has been a constant for them in these last two seasons, again scoring nearly 40. Derrick Henry finally broke out with 25, while Nick Chubb was again strong. Allen Robinson finally played up to his 2019 standard, and if he didn't have a touchdown controversially called back, the Cig Squad would have won this one. Ultimately though, the biggest reason for the team's defeat was a poor showing from Buffalo's defense. The usually-strong unit failed to score a single point, which was the ultimate difference in this one. The Cig Squad would have won against every other team this week, so it is safe to say they lost due to poor matchup luck.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 138.5
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 94.5

Summary:
It was a show-out game for the now 2-1 Atomic Pickles. Their leading scorer was actually their defensive unit, the Colts, who feasted off the Jets' offense for 27 points. Keenan Allen also gave a vintage showing with 23.5. Kyler Murray reached the 20-point mark for the third time this season, meaning he has certainly exceeded expectations to this point. Had Miles Sanders and Josh Jacobs been stronger, the Pickles may have scored the highest amount of points this week. Instead, they combined for 19.5 points, which is still solid, but they are capable of higher outputs. Dallas Goeddert performed poorly due to an injury, so the TE position is a definite point of concern for the Pickles. Despite this weakness, the Pickles should be in good shape for a recovery year, and the win was a good consolation for the Stars' Stanley Cup defeat. The Aodgers were disappointing this week after their 2-0 start. Josh Allen, who is averaging 30 PPG this year, accounted for 1/3 of his team's total. New England's defense was also as reliable as ever, scoring 17. The runningback position was the team's weakest point, especially since Chris Carson left the game due to an injury that will sideline him for at least 1-2 weeks. Mark Ingram, Josh Kelley, and Joe Mixon combined for just 12 points, which was a killer blow to their chances. Even their kicker, Harrison Butker, struggled, scoring just 3 points after double-digit totals in his first two games. The team will need to find an RB solution after Carson's injury. Still, their 2-1 record gives them leeway to survive the hit.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 4 RECAP:

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 118
Run It Back (GoTwins24) 91

Summary:
The Phantoms improved to 3-1 thanks to Dak Prescott's continued hot streak. Prescott scored a remarkable 37 points, which was somehow not his best performance of the season. Ezekiel Elliot also benefitted from Prescott's domination, scoring 16 points. Devante Parker matched Elliot's total in his best game of the year. It could have been an even more dominant victory, but Calvin Ridley somehow failed to record a single point. Ridley was injured throughout the week, so he was most likely only used as a decoy. Kenyan Drake also disappointed, which has been the case in every game this season. With James Conner coming back from the unexpected bye next week, the Phantoms may pursue other RB2 options. They also have Chase Edmonds available as a handcuff option. Last season, the team started 1-3, so they've reversed their 4-game record this season. It's been a disastrous season for Run It Back, who scored the lowest point total of the season with 91. They only had four double-digit scorers- Tyreek Hill, Joe Burrow, Terry McLaurin, and Jerrick McKinnon. Most other players were massive letdowns, specifically Tyler Lockett and Julio Jones. Lockett scored just 4 points after surpassing the 30-point mark last week and did not even record a catch until the fourth quarter. The team has a trade lined up that will hope to rescue their season, but they will have to go 7-2 the rest of the way to even have a shot at a playoff return.

Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 108.5
Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 171.5

Summary:
Kerryon My Wayward's Son dominant season continued as the team scored the highest point total of any team this week. They were bolstered by George Kittle's 31.5-point performance in his return. The addition of Kittle into the fray will make this team even more elite, especially if he continues to perform at this rate. Aaron Rodgers continued his strong season with a 29-point season, silencing the offseason critics. Their RB play was stellar, with Melvin Gordon, Alvin Kamara, and Kareem Hunt all nearing the 20-point mark. Kareem Hunt will benefit from Nick Chubb's extended absence and will probably score even more in the coming weeks. Remarkably, every position player scored in the double-digit range. They are first in the power rankings and will be a force throughout the season. Cool Brees lost and received devastating news- losing Austin Ekeler for multiple weeks. Ekeler had two consecutive strong games, so his loss will be tough to recover from. James Robinson's emergence softens the blow a bit, as although Robinson scored 15 fewer points this week, he was still average. Adam Thielen and Amari Cooper shined, combining for 48 points. Without their stellar play, Cool Brees would have likely scored under 100. It is definitely a good sign, however, that their two star WRs finally played up to their standard. Like previous weeks, the TE position hindered them. Rob Gronkowski posted 2.5 points, his third game under five points. Brandin Cooks has also been poor this year, scoring no points. Cool Brees fell to 1-3 and will have a difficult road ahead of them.

Fresh Prince of Helaire (PhilliesFan134) 125
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 106.5

Summary:
Fresh Prince of Helaire improved to 2-2 with a solid victory, mainly due to bounceback weeks from Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews. After terrible weeks, Jackson and Andrews combined for 42.5 pivotal points. They were expected to play well against Washington, but it was still a big performance. Aaron Jones was also great, nearly reaching the 20-point mark. Jones hasn't matched his Week 2 total yet, but he has been one of the strongest fantasy performers all season. Jones will be on bye next week, which could be a struggle to replace him. The team's backup RBs didn't score a point, so they will need to rely on waivers to replace such a key contributor. Ultimately, it was a strong team performance that brought the team to 2-2. The Pickles fell to 2-2 mostly due to their RB struggles. Miles Sanders and Josh Jacobs, usually a dependable duo, combined for only 15.5 points. Meanwhile, Antonio Gibson had his breakout performance- a 20-point showing. Their highest scorer was Will Fuller, who could have scored higher than his 19-point total had a late touchdown not been overturned. Fuller has surpassed the double-digit mark in three games this season, and if he remains healthy, he can become one of the surprises of the season. However, the other receivers struggled. Robert Woods, DJ Moore, and Keenan Allen combined for just 22 points. Had any of these players broken out, the team would have won. Dalton Schultz was a pleasant surprise, scoring 15 points, which could solidify the team's weakness at TE. While the Pickles may have lost, if a few more players break out, they can become playoff contenders.

You've Been Juiced! (LGM77) 108.5
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 122.5

Summary:
Team Griffith improved to 2-2 with a Monday night victory. Todd Gurley clinched the win, nearly outscoring Patrick Mahomes. Dalvin Cook was the team's standout performer, scoring 27. Mike Davis proved to be a shrewd pickup again with another 18-point game. Deshaun Watson has been a bit disappointing by his standards, but he matched his season-high with 20 points this week, which could have been more had a late touchdown not been overturned. Though if the team played Brady instead, they would have scored twelve more. Deandre Hopkins had his worst performance of the season as Arizona's passing game continues to struggle, but the team hopes this was just a one-off performance. The team is lacking another dependable receiver as their WR2, Marquez Valdes-Scantling, scored only 6. Their bench receivers, T.Y. Hilton and Julian Edelman, would not have been much better. They will hope to address this position in an upcoming trade. Still, they can be pleased with a 2-2 start. You've Been Juiced! fell to 1-2-1 despite Odell Beckham's brilliant 35.5 point outing. It was Odell's best performance in years thanks to Kevin Stefanski's offense. However, only two other players scored double-digit totals. Kenny Golladay matched his Week 3 total with 14 while Mahomes scored 19, only about average for him. Had Mahomes scored as much as he did last week, You've Been Juiced! would be 2-1-1. The RB position is clearly the biggest weakpoint on the roster, as Darrell Henderson and Rex Burkhead combined for just 8 points. New England and LA's backfields are the least dependable in the league, so the team will look to address the position via a trade. A trade may be key to helping You've Been Juiced! survive McCaffrey's absence.

Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 113.5
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 171

Summary:
The Los Angeles Aodgers improved to 3-1 in a dominant victory. They fell short of the week's highest total by just 0.5. Joe Mixon was the shocking surprise, scoring 39 points- more than he had scored in the first three weeks combined. Chris Carson was another stellar RB, scoring 23.5 in a game he may have missed due to injury. DJ Chark had a strong team debut with a 25-point outing. Josh Allen, one of many star QBs this season, once again reached the 25-point mark. Allen is making a compelling case for the season's best value pick. Only one position player, Zach Ertz, was a letdown. Ertz underwhelmed with just 4 points. Ertz has had a down season, but this is mostly due to Philly's offensive woes. If Ertz happens to be traded to a stronger offense, the Aodgers could become the strongest team in the league. They can celebrate a remarkable victory in the meantime. Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad fell to 2-2 in a rare regular-season loss. This was mostly due to poor RB play, as David Montgomery and Nick Chubb combined totaled just 12.5 points. Their RB struggles can be attributed to Derrick Henry's unexpected absence, but Nick Chubb will miss the next 4-6 weeks with an MCL injury. Therefore, David Montgomery needs to step up, but he is facing a tough Tampa run defense in Week 5. Russell Wilson scored under 30 for the first time this year, but he still was strong with 20. Even if he scored 40, there was not much he could do. It was a disappointing loss in multiple aspects, but Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad can still compete for a playoff spot.

Standings:
Alvin Lockhart Division
Kerryon My Wayward Son 3-1
Detroit Phantoms 3-1
Team Griffith 2-2
You've Been Juiced! 1-2-1

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 5 RECAP:

Run It Back (GoTwins24) 98.5
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 138.5

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles missed out on the week's best performance by just a point. Their RB duo of Miles Sanders and Josh Jacobs has the potential to be the league's best, and they lived up to that expectation by combining for 42 points. Kyler Murray has been stellar this season and continued that trend this week with yet another 20+ point outing. It was a strong overall effort from the Pickles as with the exceptions of Greg Olsen, Keenan Allen (left in the first half with an injury), and Randy Bullock, all players scored over double digits. When this happens, a team can usually expect a win. The Pickles improved to become one of the numerous 3-2 teams in the league. Run It Back lost their fourth out of five tries and yet again failed to surpass the 100-point mark. They started off strong in the noon window with new-acquisitions Todd Gurley and Jared Goff each scoring over 20 points. Tyreek Hill was dependable like usual with 15.5 points. They were weakened in the later windows, though, with Tyler Lockett and Joshua Kelley combining for just 8.5 points. The Washington-Rams game was tough luck for them (with the exception of Jared Goff) as Terry McLaurin and Tyler Higbee both failed to score over 5 points. It appears as if the campaign to become the first repeat champion in league history is over before the halfway point of the season.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 139.5
Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 131.5

Summary:
Team Griffith won a pivotal victory to lift themselves above the .500 mark. Their leader was Mike Davis- the surprise of the season so far. Davis totaled 24.5 points in another stunning outing. It is unclear when McCaffrey will return, but the upstart Davis has led his team to a hot streak. Dalvin Cook was strong with 16.5 points but left the game with an injury. Cook will not play in Week 6, so Team Griffith will likely have to promote Raheem Mostert into the RB2 spot. Mostert looked excellent in the attempts he was given, but his team's struggles prevented them from establishing the running game. His team's struggles also nearly cost Team Griffith the win as they lost four points. Luckily for Team Griffith, this was offset by Deandre Hopkins's bounceback week. Ultimately, Team Griffith will likely be in the playoff picture in a few weeks, and if Julio Jones overcomes his hamstring injury, they will have the best WR duo in the league. Kerryon My Wayward Son fell to an extremely unlucky 3-2 as they lead the power rankings while not being the top seed in the league. Their standout performer was DK Metcalf, who is establishing himself as one of the league's best with a 24-point showing. Alvin Kamara and Kareem Hunt will be a strong RB duo while Nick Chubb is injured, and the pair each scored over 15 this week. Gardiner Minshew was called on to relieve both Cam Newton and Aaron Rodgers due to their bye weeks, to which he impressed with 19 points. The only way they could have won would be if George Kittle was more involved. Kittle scored 25.5 less points than he did last week as San Francisco's QB situation is now murky. Kittle will still be valuable, but the situation is worth monitoring going forward. If the league were rotissierie, Kerryon My Wayward Son would claim the top seed, but they do not need to worry as their record will soon match their high point total as the season progresses.

Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 101
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 83.5

Summary:
Cool Brees improved to 2-3 with a win over a division opponent. They benefitted from some matchup luck as the Aodgers scored the least amount of points of all teams this week, but a win is still a win. Adam Thielen was the biggest contributor to the win thanks to a 24.5-point showing- his second straight week over 20 points. Namesake Drew Brees silenced some doubters after struggling early as he ultimately finished with 21 points. Brees will be on bye next week, so it will be interesting to see how Cool Brees replaces him. Despite these standouts, there were a lot of players who struggled- specifically Amari Cooper, James Robinson, and Devin Singletary. Cooper's value will likely take a hit after the injury to Dak Prescott, but he will still be a starting-worthy option. In case of disaster, Preston Williams may prove to be a capable backup. Williams finally performed well by scoring 18, but he was on the bench. Devonta Freeman was also a benched player who played well with a 15-point outing. If Freeman continues to see a considerable share of carries, he could help to solve the team's RB issues. Cool Brees will be happy to have won another game, but their scoring output will need to improve going forward to make another playoff appearance. After dominating with over 170 points last week, the Aodgers scored nearly 90 less points this week. No player scored over 15 after a few 20+ showings last week. Josh Allen scored 15, which is normally solid, but was half of the Buffalo QB's season average this season. Joe Mixon also regressed, scoring 28 less points, albeit against a tough rush defense. DJ Chark left the game due to injury but was not a major factor while healthy, finishing with 23 less points than last week. Zach Ertz has had a remarkably poor start to the season and followed this trend by not even recording a whole point this week. Ertz has scored just 30 points through five weeks, shockingly low by his standard. There were still some solid performances, mainly Chris Carson and Stefon Diggs, but they weren't good enough to salvage a victory. The Aodgers will need to find a balance between last week's performance and this one.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 141
You've Been Juiced! (LGM77) 134

Summary:
The Phantoms won their fourth game of 2020 thanks to a walkoff performance from Will Lutz. They needed 8 points from the Saints' kicker to win, and he gave them that and more, finishing with 15. The game was so close as a result of Dak Prescott's injury, which will keep him out for the whole season. The team does not have a backup on the roster so they will need to turn to the waiver wire or consider streaming options. While the injury is devastating, it will likely lead to a workload increase for Ezekiel Elliot. With even more touches, Elliot could potentially hit the 30-point mark in some games. The team is in a strong position with its receivers as Calvin Ridley and Jamison Crowder combined for 38 points. It was a strong recovery from injury for Ridley, and it was clear that last week's 0-point showing will be a one-off. The team's biggest weakness still lies at TE, where Hayden Hurst scored just one point this week. The team does not have a backup option, but it appears they are shifting focus away from the position to build depth in other places- a strategy that has been highly-effective this year. The Phantoms are on the fast track to another postseason appearance. You've Been Juiced! fell to an unlucky 1-3-1 this week despite some strong outings. Patrick Mahomes was the team's standout despite KC's loss with 29 points- 10 more than last week. The Rams' defense turned in the strongest defensive performance of 2020 thus far with 28 points, including 4 sacks from former DPOY Aaron Donald. Darrell Henderson was also another Rams standout as he missed the 20-point mark by only a half. If recently-released Le'Veon Bell had followed his lead, the team would have improved to .500. With Bell's release, the team has an extreme weakness at RB, but Christian McCaffrey may return in a couple weeks time. Before that, though, the team may dig itself into a hole it cannot recover from.

Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 125.5
Fresh Prince of Helaire (PhilliesFan134) 89

Summary:
The Cig Squad returned to their winning ways in a comfortable win. Russell Wilson was once again the team's leader with 23 points, although he struggled to find a groove in the early first half. Wilson has tapered off a bit after three straight 30-point games, but he has still been exceptional this season. Derrick Henry's presence was definitely needed as the Titans star returned to score 17.5 points, including a highlight-reel stiff arm of Josh Norman. No other player scored over 15, but many were solid enough in support. David Montgomery and Allen Robinson each scored 14, although Robinson was expected to perform better. The only position player to not score double digits was Juju Smith-Schuster as he took a backseat to Chase Claypool. The team also has Alexander Mattison stashed, so they can expect a stronger performance from him next week in Dalvin Cook's absence. While they benefitted from some matchup luck, it was still a solid overall team effort. Fresh Prince of Helaire fell to 2-3 as Lamar Jackson continues to disappoint. Jackson scored just 13, which was the lowest total from any starting QB across all ten teams. A.J. Brown's return helped them get close to the 90-point mark and will definitely strengthen them going forward. Their RB2 was a major weakness this week due to Aaron Jones's bye week. Ke'shawn Vaughn lost the team a point after suffering an injury. Luckily, Jones will return next week, but there will still be an RB concern once Clyde Edwards-Helaire's bye week comes around. Lastly, there was a weakness at the flex position with Cooper Kupp and Diontae Johnson combining for just 9 points. It was a rough loss for Fresh Prince of Helaire, but they are not out of contention yet.

Standings:
Alvin Lockhart Division
Detroit Phantoms 4-1
Kerryon My Wayward Son 3-2
Team Griffith 3-2
You've Been Juiced! 1-3-1
Run It Back 0-4-1

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 6 RECAP

Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 109.5
Run It Back (GoTwins24) 96.5

Summary:
Cool Brees continued their winning streak to get back to the .500 mark, benefitting from some matchup luck. While the Saints' bye week seemed to be a major roadblock, the team overcame it thanks to the rival Buccaneers. Rob Gronkowski and the team's defense combined for 36.5 points in a rout of Green Bay. Without this crucial performance, Cool Brees may have lost. They clinched the win on Monday Night thanks to Amari Cooper's effort. Cooper was held to under a point in the first half but surged in the second to finish with 16.5, which was good enough to lead all receivers on the team. The team may have a bit of an RB issue with Devin Singletary struggling, but D'Andre Swift broke out against Jacksonville on the bench. Swift scored 24.5 points- 20 more than Singletary. If this is a sustained breakout, Swift may shore up the backfield. The playoff picture consists of several 3-3 teams, so Cool Brees is right in the mix. Run It Back lost their fifth straight game and their third straight under 100 points. Their leading scorer was Pittsburgh breakout Chase Claypool, who was still impressive despite scoring 23 fewer points than last week. Myles Gaskin was also impressive with 14, although he did not find the endzone. Touchdowns have been scarce for the team this season, and David Johnson was stuffed twice at the goal line- preventing 12 crucial points. Jonnu Smith, who scored 18.5 last week, was held to just 1.5 and left the game with an injury. Earlier in the season, the TE duo of Higbee and Smith would appear to be strong, but they have both faded away this season. The team could have won with a star performance from Tyreek Hill, but he faded due to Kansas City's shift to the run game. Run It Back will definitely miss the postseason, and their goal is now to avoid a winless season.

You've Been Juiced! (LGM77) 97
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 103.5

Summary:
The Los Angeles Aodgers bounced back to 4-2 with some matchup luck, winning by 6.5. Like Cool Brees, they benefitted from Tampa Bay's domination of Green Bay thanks to Ronald Jones's 24-point outing. This made up for Josh Allen and Joe Mixon's struggles. The latter was injured and it is still unclear how long he will be out for, while Josh Allen has put up pedestrian numbers after four spectacular performances. The Aodgers will have to hope these were outliers instead of a sign of regression. Joe Mixon was not the only injured player as Zach Ertz will now miss 3-5 weeks. Ertz was already having a poor season, so the injury is the final blow that will cement Ertz as one of the biggest 2020 letdowns. The team does have Jared Cook waiting on the bench, so they will not need to necessarily pick up a street tight end. The low point total can also be explained by Chris Carson's bye week. Carson has had an excellent season, scoring no less than 8 points in every game so far. If Mixon is out for an extended period of time, Carson will be the new RB1 while the team pursues flex options. While they benefitted from a favorable matchup, the win is all that matters. You've Been Juiced! fell to 1-4-1 with the loss, clearly reeling from the injury to the #1 overall pick. McCaffrey may return soon, which will make You've Been Juiced! a much better team. They have been platooning RBs in his absence, with Darrell Henderson and Phillip Lindsay starting this week. The pair combined for just 18, which is not enough to overcome struggling receivers. Odell Beckham scored just 3. Since his 35-point showing in Week 4, Beckham has combined for just 10.5 points. Michael Gallup and Evan Engram were also letdowns, neither of whom surpassed the 5-point mark. Patrick Mahomes scored 20 despite KC's reliance on the run, but a usual game script may have led to a You've Been Juiced! victory. Instead, they fall further from the postseason, although they are only 1.5 games back.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 98.5
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 138

Summary:
It was a massive victory for the Cig Squad in a rematch of last season's semifinal. Whenever Derrick Henry faces the Houston Texans, one can expect a massive showing. This was exactly the case this week with a 39-point domination. Henry nearly single-handedly won the matchup, but Matt Ryan was also pivotal with 30 points. This nice 69-point combination made up exactly half of the team's total points. Special teams were also strong, with Younghoe Koo and Arizona's defense combining for 36 points. These four performances would have won the game by themselves, which made up for the disappearances of Juju Smith-Schuster and Mike Gescki. Smith-Schuster's struggles are more concerning given his high draft selection. The Cig Squad will need him to step up quickly to be more sustainable going forward, but it might not matter if Derrick Henry goes on another second-half tear as he did in 2019. Allen Robinson also underwhelmed, making it clear that the WR-play will need to quickly improve if the team is to make a playoff run. Still, the win established them as clear contenders. The Phantoms lost just their second game despite a solid team effort. Many players gave solid performances, but none were good enough to offset Derrick Henry. They had five players around the 13-17 point mark, but none surpassed 20 (with the exception of Kenyan Drake off the bench). Although it was expected that Ezekiel Elliot would have a massive workload in Prescott's absence, two fumbles hindered him and held him to just 7.5 points. When the opposing star RB scores 22 more points, it will be difficult to win. LA's defense surprisingly lost a point after Jimmy Garroppolo returned to form, although even a good performance would have not made a real difference. While the Phantoms lost, this is likely a one-off rather than a sign of serious regression.

Fresh Prince of Helaire (PhilliesFan134) 121
Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 111.5

Summary:
Fresh Prince of Helaire won a massive victory to equal Kerryon My Wayward Son's record. The Ravens' pairing of Mark Andrews and Lamar Jackson has really been hit-or-miss this season. Lamar performed up to his expectations with 27, though Andrews labored for 3. The return of AJ Brown was the team's story of the last two weeks. Brown has not missed a step, nearly hitting the 20-point mark in consecutive weeks. Additionally, Clyde Edwards-Helaire managed to score 18 without a touchdown, an impressive feat. The Le'Veon Bell signing may put a damper on CEH's effectiveness, but Bell's role remains to be seen. Travis Fulgham surpassed expectations with 16 points, and if he emerges as Philly's WR1, he could prove to be a shrewd pickup for Fresh Prince. The team may have performed even better, but Cooper Kupp missed out on a touchdown or two. Going forward, Fresh Prince will likely overcome their low spot in the power rankings and contend for a playoff spot. Kerryon My Wayward Son has had some terrible matchup luck this season, carrying a 3-3 record despite a high spot in the power rankings. Their point total this week was somewhat inflated by Justin Jefferson's incredible 34.5 point effort. Pittsburgh's defense was also great, feasting against Baker Mayfield for 20 points. The outcome of the game of the week between Green Bay and Tampa affected the team the worst, with Aaron Rodgers and Mike Evans only combining for 4.5 points. RB was also an issue with Breida and Hunt struggling, although Alvin Kamara's bye week affected the output. With a different schedule, the team could be 5-1 or even 6-0, but their record will likely even out as the season progresses.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 132
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 122

Summary:
Team Griffith won a major victory to improve to 4-2. Julio Jones made his team debut and his presence known, nearly reaching the 30-point mark via two touchdowns. Deshaun Watson gave a vintage 31-point performance. Watson started off a bit slow but is now returning to the remarkable consistency he showed in 2019. Travis Kelce finished off the win Monday evening with 18.5 points on two huge touchdowns. This was despite KC's shift to the running game in poor weather. Brandin Cooks was a huge pickup with a 16.5-point game, piggybacking off Deshaun Watson's showing. Some injury concerns are present with Raheem Mostert's likely return to IR and Dalvin Cook's murky status. These concerns will also be exaggerated once Mike Davis is no longer Carolina's starter, although he may still maintain some value. If DeAndre Hopkins performs more stably, WR firepower may offset any RB concerns. Team Griffith may be in a prime position for their first playoff run. The Pickles fell to 3-3 despite another strong game. Kyler Murray was dominant yet again with 28- his fourth straight game with 20+ points. This performance, along with Ceedee Lamb's 9.5 points, made the game closer on Monday night. Many Texans were involved in this game as Will Fuller provided 21 points to the losing side. Ultimately, they lost due to RB struggles as Antonio Gibson and Miles Sanders combined for just 18.5 points. Miles Sanders fumbled away a near touchdown and left due to injury. Without this, the Pickles may have improved to 4-2 with a consecutive 130+ point game. While Sanders will miss time, Josh Jacobs will return from bye. As a result, Antonio Gibson may be the Pickles' key to surviving the Sanders injury, regardless of its length.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 7 RECAP

Run It Back (GoTwins24) 168
Fresh Prince of Helaire 132

Summary:
It was a cathartic victory for Run It Back, who won their first game since last year's championship. This was thanks to Tyler Lockett's unbelievable 45.5-point showing, which was the best performance of the season out of any player. If Lockett struggled as he did in the two weeks before this game, the team may still be winless. Joe Burrow also delivered an outstanding performance with a season-high 33 points on over 400 yards passing. Todd Gurley scored 20 points for the third time on his new team, although it would have been 6 less had he gone down instead of scoring an unnecessary touchdown. Terry McLaurin and Tyreek Hill cost the team last week, but both made up for it by combining for over 30. These dominant showings offset poor outings from Jonnu Smith and Chase Claypool, who could have pushed the team to over 200 points had they also performed well. While Run It Back may not have much to play for, it was a satisfying victory. Fresh Prince of Helaire had the worst matchup luck of the week as they lost despite the third-highest total across all teams. An unexpected injury to Aaron Jones put a damper on the week and his replacement in J.D. McKissic only managed to score 5. Still, AJ Brown's return from injury has made a team a threat. Brown scored over 20 points this week, his third-straight strong showing. Ryan Tannehill, his QB, struggled up until a 72-yard TD pass that made the game close. Outside of this, Tannehill was worse than usual with only 16. Tyler Boyd was a pleasant surprise with over 20, his first double-digit mark in three weeks. Christian Kirk was good as well, although Diontae Johnson would have been a better flex play in his return from injury. TE was the biggest issue as Darren Fells could not fill in for Mark Andrews and scored no points. Although Fresh Prince fell to a disappointing 3-4, they still remain in the playoff picture.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 115
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 122.5

Summary:
The Phantoms improved to a tied-for-league-best 5-2 by besting the Aodgers by a slim margin. It was a strong Thursday Night thanks to Carson Wentz's 27. Wentz started off strong but tapered off until the fourth quarter, where he threw two touchdowns. This ended up as the difference in the game. No other player exceeded the 20-point mark, although Chris Godwin came close with 18.5. Unfortunately, Godwin will miss yet another week with a hand injury, and his durability has been unexpectedly poor in 2020. He was not the only Phantoms player to leave with an injury as Kenyan Drake was also hurt, although the team has Chase Edmonds ready off the bench for a strong handcuff. If the team lost, it would be because of Ezekiel Elliot's struggles. Elliot has combined for just 11.5 points in Dak's absence, which is alarming for the team's first-round pick. If Elliot continues to perform poorly, the team will struggle to put up as high point totals as they did in the first few weeks. Even still, their record puts them in good shape with a contested playoff picture. Los Angeles will be rueing a missed opportunity this week after losing despite Davante Adams's big night. Adams went off for 37.5 points, one of the best performances of not only the week but the season. Unfortunately for them, no other performer stood out aside from Boston Scott, who scored 15.5 points to be a strong fill-in for the injured Joe Mixon. Josh Allen has fallen down to earth quite a bit as he could not take advantage of a favorable matchup in the Jets. Allen was not the only Buffalo letdown as Stefon Diggs scored his only single-digit total this far. The game ultimately boiled down to New England's struggles against San Francisco, as if they scored the projected 7 points instead of -1, Los Angeles would have improved to 5-2. Instead, they remain in the playoff picture but missed an opportunity to build a more comfortable lead.

Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 114.5
Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 106.5

Summary:
The Cig Squad continued their hot streak for their fifth victory of the season. They were led as usual by Russell Wilson's near-30 point outing, which could have been even greater had Wilson not thrown three interceptions. Wilson was the only player to score more than 15, which prevented the Cig Squad from a higher point total. Even so, their other players did just enough to win. Derrick Henry could not repeat his 39-point outing, scoring 25 less. Although, it is hard to find fault in this against a strong Pittsburgh run defense. Juju Smith-Schuster scored 12.5, which was actually his third-highest this season. This may suggest that he is again finding favor with Ben Roethlisberger even with Diontae Johnson's return. The team trailed by a slim margin on Monday night, but David Montgomery and Allen Robinson certainly made them nervous. Neither reached the ten-point mark, and the win was not clinched until a late catch by Allen Robison in the fourth quarter. Even though there were some underwhelming showings, the Cig Squad is now in a comfortable position in the playoff picture. Kerryon My Wayward Son is vying with 2018 Cool Brees for the dubious honor of unluckiest team in league history. They stand at under .500 despite leading the power rankings nearly every week. It's been a combination of poor matchup luck and unexpected letdowns. Last week, Aaron Rodgers prevented a win with a clunker, but he made up for it this week by scoring 27. This time, it was D.K. Metcalf, who unfortunately did not receive any points for his chase-down tackle to save a pick-6. Instead, he scored 21 less than the last time he played. Mike Evans was also nowhere to be found in his second consecutive poor performance. Keelan Cole was the final WR to struggle as he put up just 1.5. If Justin Jefferson was not on bye, Kerryon My Wayward Son may have won this won. Instead, they will need their matchup luck to even up for their record to match their point total.

Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 120
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 128

Summary:
Team Griffith won a crucial victory by a slim margin and improved to a tied-for-league-best 5-2. Deshaun Watson was the only player to score over 20, which he has now done in four straight weeks. Although, Tom Brady would have scored 16 more points in a vintage showing. Jamaal Williams was a smart streaming option as he scored 18 points. DeAndre Hopkins and Julio Jones, a formidable WR pairing, propelled the team further by combining for 32 points. Hopkins entered Sunday night's game needing 11 points to give his team the win, and he did just that. If he had only scored 8 points like last week, Cool Brees would have won a major victory. The game was so close thanks largely to Travis Kelce's struggles. Kelce scored under 10 points in just one other game in 2020, but he scored a season-low 4.5 this week. The team may also have an RB-crisis brewing with Aaron Jones and Christian McCaffrey returning to injury. Dalvin Cook may not be entirely healthy himself, but he will need to play a major role going forward with injury and replacement issues facing the RB core. Still, like the other 5-2 teams, Team Griffith is in a comfortable position standings-wise. Cool Brees saw their winning streak snapped in heartbreaking fashion. James Robinson could arguably already be named pickup of the season as the undrafted rookie has now scored close to thirty on two separate occasions this year. Drew Brees has also silenced any concern about aging or dependence on Michael Thomas as he has now scored over 20 in two straight games. Rob Gronkowski also now looks like his old self thanks to another strong outing. Gronk has shot up the fantasy TE rankings in an overall weak year for the position. Overall though, the running-back position, outside of James Robinson, cost the team the game. Devin Singletary has been a let-down this year and was outgained by Zack Moss, raising questions about Buffalo's backfield makeup. Justin Jackson and De'Andre Swift were also not as strong as their last games, which really cost Cool Brees. Had they performed better, Cool Brees would have won yet another game and stand at above .500. Instead, they will need a strong run in the second half to return to the postseason.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 139.5
You've Been Juiced! (LGM77) 91.5

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles had the second-best performance of the week in a blowout win. Miles Sanders's injury and Josh Jacobs's struggles may have buried most teams, but the Pickles overcame them with ease. Antonio Gibson shined after getting a chance, scoring 18. The main difference-maker, though, was Kyler Murray and his 36-point game. Murray is yet to score under 20 points in any game this season and will likely be drafted much higher in 2021. They might have one of the greatest QB pairings possible as Murray and Justin Herbert would have combined for 73 points in a 2-QB league. The Pickles made one of the greatest selections in league history with the last-round choice of Patrick Mahomes in 2018, which led them to a title. Can Murray and Herbert follow the same trend? The Pickles were also led by many unsung heroes at the wide receiver position, mainly D.J. Moore, Cole Beasley, and Keenan Allen. Allen has seemed to return to prominence, although he has been on-and-off for most of the season. Moore's performance was his season-best, his only above 20. Their biggest weakness may be at TE, where Dalton Schultz only recorded 3 points. Figuring this position out may be the best way for them to solidify themselves as contenders. You've Been Juiced! fell to 1-5-1, but they will likely perform better in the coming weeks with Christian McCaffrey's return to play. Their scoring leader this week was actually KC's defense, which scored multiple defensive touchdowns in a teardown of the Broncos. Gio Bernard was also a wise pickup after filling in for Joe Mixon with 16.5 points. Many other players disappointed though, especially Patrick Mahomes, who scored a season-low 12 points thanks to poor weather. Even though McCaffrey will return to the lineup, the team was still bit by the injury bug after it was announced that Odell Beckham, Jr. will miss the entire season with an ACL tear. OBJ has been hit-or-miss in 2020, but he will ultimately be seen as a letdown. Mike Williams was also a letdown after he failed to score a single point despite the Chargers' near-40 point game. The injury bug also hit Deebo Samuel, another receiver who will miss some time. So even though the RB-position will be solidified by CMac's return, WR is now an issue.

Standings:
Alvin Lockhart Division
Team Griffith 5-2
Detroit Phantoms 5-2
Kerryon My Wayward Son 3-4
Run It Back 1-5-1
You've Been Juiced! 1-5-1

Gilgamesh Star Division
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad 5-2
Atomic Pickles 4-3
Los Angeles Aodgers 4-3
Fresh Prince of Helaire 3-4

1. Kerryon My Wayward Son (934.5)
2. Team Griffith (904)
3. Detroit Phantoms (888)
t.4. Atomic Pickles (879.5)
5. Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (877.5)

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 8 RECAP

Run It Back (GoTwins24) 98
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 114.5

Summary:
The Cig Squad improved to a tied-for-league-best 6-2 with a solid victory. As per usual, Russell Wilson was the team's leader, falling just short of another 30-point outing by 2. Derrick Henry was also solid with 17, which was under his protected total but still good enough for an RB1. David Montgomery, the team's other running-back, scored 10 points. Montgomery hasn't been excellent this season, but he has been a passable RB2. Allen Robinson was the last position player to score in the double-digit range in his best performance since Week 4. If Robinson is able to perform well despite poor QB play, the Cig Squad will benefit greatly. Other WRs Juju Smith-Schuster, Jarvis Landry, and Robby Anderson failed to reach the double-digit mark. While these performances were disappointing, kicker Younghoe Koo partially made up for it by scoring 13. It was a solid team effort for the Cig Squad, and they are a prime contender for a playoff spot. After a remarkable performance in Week 7, Run It Back fell back to the mean by scoring 70 fewer points. This was mainly due to Tyler Lockett scoring 40.5 fewer points than he did last week. In addition, Todd Gurley scored half his point total from Week 7. The only player who performed better was Tyreek Hill, but he only scored 9 more. Lastly, Jonnu Smith disappointed again and has taken a backseat to Corey Davis and AJ Brown. Run It Back can no longer match their win total from last season and will just hope to salvage as many wins as possible over the remainder of the season.

Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 120.5
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 107.5

Summary:
Kerryon My Wayward Son returned to their winning ways and improved to .500 on the year. They can credit the win to D.K. Metcalf, who bounced back from an underwhelming week to score a remarkable 34 points. Aaron Rodgers and Alvin Kamara have been a strong QB-RB duo this season, and they continued their strong seasons by combining for 40.5 points. Pittsburgh's defense finished off the win by scoring 16 despite a matchup against Lamar Jackson. Had they equaled their 4-point outing from last week, the team would have won by just a single point. The aforementioned performers offset unexpected struggles from usually-reliable players in Justin Jefferson and Kareem Hunt, who combined for just 10.5 points. The team was dealt a considerable blow with the injury to George Kittle, who will not return until early in the fantasy postseason. The team does have TJ Hockenson on the bench- a solid option given the poor state of TE play this fantasy season. Utlimately, Kerryon My Wayward Son finally benefitted from some matchup luck and now stand at an even record. The Aodgers also stand at 4-4 after a disappointing defeat. Their performances are almost entirely correlated with Josh Allen performances. Allen struggled again this week with just 12 points. If he had scored as many as he did consistently in the first few weeks of the season, the Aodgers would have won a narrow victory. Chris Carson's injury was also a main reason for the loss as the team had to start both Tampa running-backs, neither of whom scored in double digits. There were still some bright spots, mainly Davante Adams- who has returned to form after missing some weeks with an injury. With the playoff race close, Chris Carson's health may determine the team's playoff chances, although Deejay Dallas was great this week.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 132
Fresh Prince of Helaire (Philliesfan134) 111

Summary:
Team Griffith appears to be on track to be on course for their first playoff appearance in league history. Dalvin Cook was nearly the sole reason for victory via his 47-point outing- which was nearly 40% of the entire total. It was really unfortunate for Fresh Prince of Helaire, who was now been at the worse end of two-straight 40+ point showings. Travis Kelce and Julio Jones also performed well by combining for 36.5, which meant that the Team Griffith trio accounted for almost 2/3 of the team's overall total. Tom Brady also filled in for Deshaun Watson aptly, scoring just about 20. These performances offset San Francisco's defensive struggles, which lost the team two points. Additionally, Christian McCaffrey's return will diminish Mike Davis's value, but Damien Harris could be an interesting bench option. Of course, Davis could retain some value, but it is unlikely to be at the levels it was at in the first few weeks. Still, Team Griffith will be in a prime position to make a strong playoff run. As mentioned earlier, Fresh Prince of Helaire faced some terrible matchup fortune, although as a consolation, they had an excellent week in the picks contest and are now in strong contention there. Philadelphia's defense made it interesting on Sunday night with 23 points, which ended up as Fresh Prince's highest total. Lamar Jackson's struggles have arguably been the story of the season for them, as their 3rd-round pick has scored over 20 in just three weeks this year. The team also benched his favorite 2019 target in Mark Andrews in favor of Dallas Goedert, which only cost them three points. If Andrews and Jackson performed at their 2019 levels throughout the season, the team may have a better record. Namesake Clyde Edwards-Helaire struggled this week with just 4.5 points, and it is unclear what his role will be with Le'Veon Bell's entry. Zack Moss scored 20 points and could be seen as a strong depth option. Also, Aaron Jones missed another game due to injury, and his recovery will likely lead to better results going forward. At 3-5 though, Fresh Prince may not have much time left.

You've Been Juiced! (LGM77) 119.5
Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 71.5

Summary:
You've Been Juiced! won their second game of the season in a blowout victory. Patrick Mahomes was once again the team's MVP with an outstanding 36-point performance- his second-best of the season after a letdown last week. Giovani Bernard was a shrewd pickup, scoring 20.5 while filling in for Joe Mixon. Curtis Samuel also delivered his strongest outing of the season- nearing 20 points. With Kenny Golladay now another You've Been Juiced! player to suffer an injury, Samuel could potentially be a strong fill-in option. Ultimately though, the best news for the team is that Christian McCaffrey will return from his Week 2 injury, which will be a major boost. Unfortunately, the team has dealt with several other injuries- specifically to Odell Beckham and the previously mentioned injury to Kenny Golladay. Mike Williams was also solid this week, so he could be a potential option to replace the injured players. You've Been Juiced! still has a playoff chance, but it will rely on several fill-in players. Cool Brees fell to 3-5 in their worst performance of the season. Their struggles are in part due to injury as their entire bench accounted for just 2 points. Namesake Drew Brees was the leader in points as per usual, but he could not surpass the 20-point mark. The team's WRs were the biggest letdowns as Amari Cooper and Adam Thielen combined for just 4 points, which won't cut it for a WR-duo. Thielen's game was a likely one-off as Minnesota emphasized the running-game against a bad defense, but Cooper's struggles were more concerning. With a revolving-door at QB in Dallas, it may be unlikely for Cooper to live up to a WR1 standard. The two main RBs- Devin Singletary and D'Andre Swift, were also mediocre. Northwestern legend Justin Jackson outperformed all running-backs on the roster, which has been significant following Austin Ekeler's injury. Rob Gronkowski has also silenced some doubts as Tom Brady's favorite target, scoring 12 points- which is just fine for a TE this year. Still, at 3-5, Cool Brees may need to win out to have a playoff chance.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 92.5
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 121

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles earned a big victory to improve to 5-3 and a playoff spot. Their leader was Robert Woods and his season-high 23.5 points. Justin Herbert, although not as strong as last week, was still pivotal with 21 points. His teammate Keenan Allen also impressed with 16.5. There were some concerns about Allen's performances earlier in the season, but the arrival of Herbert has kept him as a strong option. As for the RB core, Miles Sanders's injury has been difficult to overcome. Tevin Coleman scored just 2 points as his replacement. Josh Jacobs was also a bit of a letdown, although it would not have stood out as much had Miles Sanders been in the lineup. Sanders's timeline for return is still unclear, but it may give the Pickles a needed boost in a playoff race. Antonio Gibson was also idle this week, so he would have filled in well for Sanders had he played. At 5-3, the Pickles maintain a playoff spot that they are likely to maintain. The Phantoms fell to 5-3 as their struggles continue. Corey Davis has been a low-key great fantasy performer this year, and he led his team with 22 points this week. Unfortunately for the Phantoms, he was the only performer to score over 15. Dak Prescott's injury has devastated the team in two ways- creating a weakness at QB and limiting Ezekiel Elliot's effectiveness. To offset Elliot's struggles, Chase Edmonds may be a key option, but Arizona was idle this week. Injuries have hurt this team arguably the most as even excluding Prescott, three key contributors in Chris Godwin, Kenyan Drake, and Jamison Crowder are injured. Additionally, Calvin Ridley left Thursday's game with an injury, but it is not expected to be significant. If the Phantoms can return to health, they will likely still claim a playoff spot.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 9 RECAP

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 128.5
Run It Back (GoTwins24) 104

Summary:
Los Angeles won their fifth game of the season convincingly. They carried a significant lead heading into Sunday, leading 41.5-2 after Thursday night. Aside from QB Josh Allen, their leading scorer was WR Davante Adams, who scored 28 of those 41.5 points. Josh Allen was ultimately the leader with 35 points. Stefon Diggs was also a solid performer, scoring 15 points. The team missed out on a revenge game narrative as three former Run It Back players- Jerick McKinnon, John Brown, and DJ Chark combined for 50 points, but McKinnon was the only starter. Los Angeles expected to hit the 150-point mark, but Leonard Fournette, Ronald Jones, and Jared Cook combined for just 10.5 points. Fortunately for the Aodgers, they didn't face a strong opponent this week, and their performance prior to the primetime game was great. Run It Back is the first team to be eliminated from the 2020 postseason, succumbing to their even-year and the league's defending champion curse. They were doomed on Thursday night when Jamychal Hasty scored just two points. They were projected to score just 66 points at halftime of the noon games. However, they went on a 5-touchdown stretch in just five in-game minutes. After being on pace to have no double-digit scorers, Terry McLaurin and Tyreek Hill each surpassed the 20-point mark, but these performances masked what was another poor showing. Their running-backs were underwhelming, although this was partly due to David Johnson's concussion. Tyler Lockett might be the biggest hit-or-miss this season as he has yet to surpass the 10-point mark after his 45.5-point showing two years ago. Run It Back cannot finish over .500 this season- the only team that can say that.

Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 108
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 137

Summary:
Team Griffith is on the verge of clinching their first-ever playoff appearance thanks mainly to Dalvin Cook's surge. Cook nearly hit the 40-point mark again and has emerged as arguably the best fantasy RB. Travis Kelce widened the gap between him and the next best TE, scoring exactly 20 points for a second straight week. The QB-WR combo of Deshaun Watson and Brandin Cooks shined, combining for nearly 40 points. Julio Jones was decent as well, scoring 13.5, but he still struggled to find the end-zone. DeAndre Hopkins was a surprising letdown despite a shootout Arizona game as he scored as many points as new acquisition Antonio Brown. KC's defense was also poor, costing the team a point, but this didn't really affect the outcome. Ultimately, Dalvin Cook's dominance may have Team Griffith as the favorite for the postseason. Kerryon My Wayward Son suffered another unlucky defeat to fall to an undeserved 4-5. Aaron Rodgers did all he could to prevent this with nearly 30, but he was the only performer to come close to the 30-point mark, although DK Metcalf came close with 19.5. Running-backs were what sunk the team this week, which was also the case for many teams. Alvin Kamara and Melvin Gordon combined for just 14 points- not enough to outpace Dalvin Cook. Justin Jefferson has also regressed in the last two weeks, scoring nearly five-times fewer than he did before his bye week. Additionally, Mike Evans has been inefficient this season- an unpleasant surprise after a strong 2019 season. TJ Hockenson will be an important performer going forward with George Kittler's injury, and he was solid was 11.5 points this week. In a normal circumstance, this would be underwhelming, but 2020 has been a nightmare for tight ends, so 11.5 points will cut it. Kerryon My Wayward Son will now likely need to go at least 2-2 in their next four to earn a playoff spot.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 131
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 102

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles won a battle of likely playoff teams in convincing fashion. As usual, their leader was Kyler Murray. Murray's 37 was almost double their second-highest scorer. Keenan Allen was the other 20+ point performer with 20.5. Will Fuller was also strong, scoring another touchdown to extend an incredible six-game touchdown streak. Fuller has scored double-digits in every game he has played in so far and has been one of the best 2020 value picks. While their running-backs were a bit disappointing, they did just enough to win the game for the Pickles thanks to their receivers' performances. DJ Moore's recent struggles have been slightly concerning, but the team has a few bench options in case he continues to struggle. With the strongest QB position in the league, the Pickles are just awaiting Miles Sanders's return for their playoff run. The Cig Squad fell to 6-3 but the loss likely will not affect their playoff outlook. Russell Wilson was the leader in points again, but it could have been more had he not struggled with turnovers. Unfortunately for the Cig Squad, poor RB play cost them the game. Derrick Henry and David Montgomery combined for just 9.5 points, and the latter suffered a concussion that may keep him from playing next week. Their top two receivers, Allen Robinson and Robby Anderson, were average but not good enough to make up for poor RB play. Juju Smith-Schuster's strong outing was a positive sign, though, as he scored his highest point total since the first week of the season. While it would have been a major victory, the Cig Squad is still fairly likely to make the postseason.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 56.5
You've Been Juiced! (LGM77) 119.5

Summary:
After a 1-5-1 start, You've Been Juiced! re-entered the playoff picture thanks to the return of Christian McCaffrey, who scored his usual 30 points. Unfortunately, McCaffrey was injured again, this time hurting his shoulder, and it is unclear how long he will miss. This will be especially rough for You've Been Juiced! as Patrick Mahomes will be on bye next week, meaning they will be without their two best performers. Christian Kirk was added right before the game, which turned out to be a great pickup as he scored over 20 points. If Kirk can perform this well consistently, it would help to fix some of the team's injury issues. Le'Veon Bell and Darius Slayton may need to be replaced going forward as they failed to reach the one-point mark, and Kirk could replace Slayton while a waiver-wive RB could replace Bell if need. To win in Week 10, the team will have to find a suitable replacement for McCaffrey, and maybe even Patrick Mahomes as Ben Roethlisberger was placed on the Reserve-COVID list. Still, if they find a way to win out, they could continue their playoff streak in shocking fashion. The Phantoms have seen their playoff chances take a significant hit after losing their second consecutive game. Even worse, their performance was the lowest-scoring outing of 2020. No position players scored double-digits, but the Giants' defense was the leading scorer with just 12. Calvin Ridley did not play in Week 9, which dealt a significant blow to the Phantoms. Ezekiel Elliot may be the biggest disappointment of 2020, falling to flex territory and scoring just 7 points this week. Chris Godwin returned to the lineup but was not efficient, adding just 5.5 points in a disappointing showing. New acquisition Mark Andrews scored only 3.5, which is highly disappointing for a debut. For the Phantoms to make the playoffs, many players will need to return to form.

Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 91
Fresh Prince of Helaire (PhilliesFan134) 90

Summary:
Cool Brees won a narrow one-point victory in dramatic fashion. The game came down to Sunday night's Bucs-Saints contest, to which Cool Brees benefitted from the New Orleans blowout. Drew Brees scored 22 points, which was enough to outscore Ryan Succop. Rob Gronkowski nearly cost the team the win by scoring under a point, but a few other performances and some matchup luck secured the win. Although James Robinson scored less than he did last week, it was still a decent showing. D'Andre Swift was also better than he was last week, which also led to the win. The win would have been more comfortable had Justin Jackson not left the game early and finished with no points. Lastly, Tennesse's defense was the stream of the week as had Cool Brees played a different defense, they may have lost the game. At 4-5, they may still make the postseason. Fresh Prince has now lost three heartbreakers in a row. In the last two weeks, they faced unlucky matchups. This time, they fell short by just a point. Had Ryan Succop's late field goal been two more yards, the game would have ended in a tie. A.J. Brown was the team's scoring leader, but no players exceeded the 20-point mark. Lamar Jackson was okay, but still nowhere near his 2019 averages. A similar thing can be said for Aaron Jones, who scored under 10, although his return may have been rushed due to COVID issues in Green Bay. Ultimately, the TE position cost the team the win, as the recently-dropped Logan Thomas scored just 3.5. Defense was also an issue as Philly's bye week caused them to start Houston's defense, which only scored 2. At 3-6, Fresh Prince's playoff road hinges on winning out, which will be a difficult task.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 10 RECAP

Run It Back (GoTwins24) 106
You've Been Juiced! (LGM77) 69

Summary:
Run It Back won the Injury Bowl in a comfortable fashion, albeit with a relatively low point total. None of their players scored 20, which is generally a bad sign. Actually, only 4 players scored double digits- two of whom were New Orleans' defense and kicker Zane Gonzalez. Chase Claypool was the team leader with 19 points- his highest since his 38.5 point outburst against Philadelphia in Week 5. Running-back has been a thorn in the team's side all season, ironic given their name, and that continued this week as fill-ins Gio Bernard and Duke Johnson combined for just 11 points. Wayne Gallman was benched heading into the game, but he would have outscored both players by himself. While it was a victory aided by matchup luck, the team will take any good results it can get until 2021. You've Been Juiced! will now likely see their remarkable playoff streak end after falling to 3-6-1. Ben Roethlisberger accounted for nearly half of the team's points, which is significant given he nearly missed the game via the COVID list. The loss was largely due to another Christian McCaffrey absence. If C-MAC would have given his usual 30-point showing, the game would have been much closer. J.D. McKissic was the only other double-digit scorer with a 13.5-point performance. After injuries to many of their WR core, the team has relied on inconsistent and unreliable receiving options. Not a single receiver reached the 5-point mark in the loss. Darius Slayton scored 11.5 on the bench, but the team's finish may ultimately depend on whether Kenny Golladay returns from injury. You've Been Juiced can still make the playoffs by winning out and getting favorable results elsewhere, but this loss dealt a significant blow to their comeback effort.

Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 97
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 108

Summary:
Team Griffith has now achieved the highest winning streak since 2017 in their 8th-straight win. The outcome was hazy at first, but momentum shifted in their favor after DeAndre Hopkins caught a hail mary from Kyler Murray, which led to 10.5 points. This play was ultimately the tipping point in the game's outcome. Damien Harris added to the momentum swing with 12 points Sunday night, although Rex Burkhead outscored him on the bench by 8. Dalvin Cook finished the win off despite starting slow, and his overall total was half as much as the last two weeks but still useful. Deshaun Watson also struggled against a weak Cleveland secondary, although this could be attributed to poor weather. It will be interesting to see if Team Griffith will make a switch to Tom Brady as he has been a better QB thus far. Even with this in mind, Team Griffith will likely easily clinch their first-ever playoff appearance in the coming weeks. The Cig Squad fell to 6-4 and are now entrenched in the battle for the 2-4 seeds. Nick Chubb's return could have propelled them to victory as he scored 18. Though, fortunately for them, his decision to not score a touchdown did not affect the game's outcome. Juju Smith-Schuster and Brandon Aiyuk were also great, scoring nearly as much as Chubb. Ultimately though, the loss can be chalked up to Russell Wilson's struggles. If Russ would have performed to his 2020 standard, the Cig Squad would have narrowly won. Additionally, Washington's defense lost the team a point. If they scored double digits, the team would have pulled off the win. Lastly, Derrick Henry has been a bit underwhelming since his 39-point game against Houston. Even so, Henry's best performances came in the 2019 playoffs, so it may be too early for the Cig Squad to be concerned. Although the loss was disappointing, the team is still firmly entrenched in the playoff picture.

Fresh Prince of Helaire (PhilliesFan134) 85.5
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 111.5

Summary:
Los Angeles won a pivotal victory in large part to Buffalo's offensive outburst. In the game, Josh Allen and Stefon Diggs combined for 45.5 points. Allen has been one of the best fantasy performers in 2020 and has scored over 60 points in two weeks. Ronald Jones delivered the signature play of the win with a 98-yard touchdown. It is safe to say that he redeemed himself from his record-low carries last week. Rojo offset three poor performances from Hasty, Fournette, and McKinnon- none of whom scored 5 points. Luckily for Los Angeles, these players were fill-ins for Joe Mixon and Chris Carson, so the RB issue is not likely to be long-term. Davante Adams also took a step back, but this was to be expected after dominant performances in each of the past three weeks. Ultimately, the win was huge for the Aodgers to remain in the playoff picture. Fresh Prince of Helaire was officially eliminated with the loss. Although Lamar Jackson has struggled in 2020, he was Fresh Prince's leading scorer in his first 20-point outing since Week 6. The biggest surprise of the week, though, was Malcolm Brown, who scored 17 points in his first game with his new team. He actually outscored Jonathan Taylor, who may have been the most well-known player in the deal. Ryan Succop matched his point total, which would have been useful for the team last week. This week, the team can blame their receiving core as not a single receiver scored double digits. More painfully, Diontae Johnson and Marvin Jones were left on the bench and combined for 40 points, which would have led to a victory. Fresh Prince can no longer finish at .500, so they will look to play spoiler for the rest of the season.

Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 140
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 82.5

Summary:
For Kerryon My Wayward Son, it was only a matter of time before they got a deserved win. This came in the form of a near 60-point victory in a battle of Detroit fans. As usual, their leader was Alvin Kamara. Kamara scored over 30 for the first time since Week 3, but he was primarily used as a receiver as he nearly had as many catches as carries. Aaron Rodgers also was as effective as usual. In fact, Rodgers has scored over 20 points in four consecutive games since his 3-point clunker. On the opposite side, Justin Jefferson made up for two consecutive clunkers with a solid 17-point game. In addition, Mike Evans made up for clunkers with a 16-point game of his own. These showings were more than enough for a win, but they could have scored a week-high had D.K. Metcalf performed better than his season-low 3 points. Even so, it was a beneficial turn of luck for a team that desperately needed it. Kerryon My Wayward Son is now in a position to reach the postseason, but they will probably need to win at least 2 out of their next 3 to do so. It has been a tale of two halves for the Detroit Phantoms, who have now dropped three in a row. This week, their leading scorer was Chris Godwin, who scored 12. Aside from Godwin, only Jared Goff and Will Lutz scored double digits. Most players performed at their expected level per ESPN, except for James Conner, who scored 10 less than he was projected to score. The storylines for the Phantoms right now are the injuries to Jamison Crowder and Calvin Ridley and the drop-off in Ezekiel Elliot's performance. If these issues are fixed, they can still make the playoffs, but it may come down to a tiebreaker that would be difficult for them to overcome. Ultimately, had Dak Prescott not suffered an injury, this team would likely be fighting for the #1 seed for Team Griffith.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 141.5
Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 100.5

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles improved to 7-3 and are now on the verge of a return to the postseason. They were led by the top three listed players on their roster- Kyler Murray, Josh Jacobs, and Antonio Gibson. It was a strong bounceback performance from Josh Jacobs as he matched his total from each of the last three weeks combined. Miles Sanders made his long-awaited return to the lineup with a 12-point outing. With Sanders's return, the Pickles may have the best RB core in the league. The Pickles could have done even better had they played DJ Moore or Cole Beasley, although it may not have made sense to play them over Woods, Fuller, or Allen. Their biggest weakness is at the TE position as although they have three on the roster, these players only scored four points between them. They got some good news though as Zach Ertz may soon be activated from IR. Although Ertz has struggled this season and Philadelphia's offense is weak, Ertz's talent is evident and could be enough to solidify the roster. If the Pickles win one more game, they will likely make the postseason. Cool Brees fell to 4-6 with a tough loss. D'Andre Swift gave the best performance with 22.5 points, his second-best of the season. Adam Thielen was the second-best scorer with 18, but it was not enough for a Monday Night miracle. Most concerningly though, Drew Brees suffered a rough injury that may potentially end his season, although Brees is seeking a second opinion as to whether he should go to IR. If Brees is indeed injured, they will have to look to waivers as they do not have another QB rostered. It also remains to be seen how this will affect Michael Thomas's value, as Thomas has not lived up to his draft position in 2020. At 4-6, Cool Brees will need to win out to still have a playoff chance.
