Another draft is in the books! We are entering the 8th year of forum fantasy, and the 7th year of Dish's reign as commissioner. Congratulations to all the teams on completing yet another draft. With that in mind, here is a summary of how the league is shaping up:

Past Champions:
2015: GoTwins24
2016: Prediction
2017: ZeroGibson13
2018: AgentP
2019: GoTwins24
2020: Queso James
2021: iPump Plastic

Team Storylines:
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34):
The league's commissioner is hoping to avenge a defeat in last season's championship, as well as to make his third straight playoff appearance. He got some help by receiving the top overall pick, which he used to select Derrick Henry. He followed this by taking receivers CeeDee Lamb and Keenan Allen, and has a nice QB-WR stack of Keenan Allen and Justin Herbert.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115):
Despite a solid roster last season, the Phantoms missed out on the postseason due to some brutal schedule luck. They took last year's MVP Jonathan Taylor with their first pick, and complemented him with Saquon Barkley and Javonte Williams. Their strategy was clearly to hammer RBs, as they have four starting RBs on the roster.

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24):
Last season, One Man Revolution missed the postseason for the first time in an odd-numbered year. This year, they look to return to the postseason for the first time in three years. They did so by selecting Austin Ekeler and returning Aaron Jones from last season. They also selected Mike Evans as their WR1. Like the Phantoms, they clearly tried to hammer RBs, so they will need some breakouts at WR to solidify their roster.

Team Griffith (jag123jg):
Last season was one of the biggest statistical anomalies in league history for Team Griffith, as they missed the postseason despite leading the league in scoring in the regular season. This year, they will rely on Christian McCaffrey's health, as well as Kansas City's offense. They drafted Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Juju Smith-Schuster, and former Chief WR Tyreek Hill. If fully healthy and in good form, this could be an explosive combination of players in fantasy.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam):
Los Angeles was one of the hottest teams toward the end of last regular season, but their hot streak came to an abrupt end in the postseason. This year, they will be led by Cooper Kupp as their primary piece, and their Lamar Jackson-Mark Andrews stack should be crucial as well.

iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic):
Last season, iPump Plastic won the championship in their debut season. They were led by excellent running back play, so they went back to that strategy this year. They have 8 running backs on the roster, including D'Andre Swift, and red zone threats in Nick Chubb, Ezekiel Elliot, and JK Dobbins.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ):
In 2021, the team formerly known as Bellwind High took the league by storm, dominating the power rankings for weeks on end. However, injuries and regression eventually hurt them and led to an early playoff exit. This year, they look to avenge that with a team led by Dalvin Cook, Joe Mixon, Josh Allen, and Michael Pittman.

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134):
Last season, Auto Pilot struggled due to Christian McCaffrey's injury woes. This year, the team autodrafted, but they still ended up with a decent roster. But the biggest question for them will be the resolution of Alvin Kamara's legal issues- as he could serve a lengthy in-season suspension that would be a tough blow to the roster. They also have some potential injury concerns, but nothing major at the moment.

Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James):
After unfortunately missing out on 2021's draft, the 2020 champion and 2019 #1 seed will look to make a return to the postseason in 2022. Although they voiced displeasure with their roster, they still have solid options in Najee Harris, Stefon Diggs, Tee Higgins, and DJ Moore. Dameon Pierce is also an intriguing option off the bench.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP):
The Atomic Pickles had a disappointing season in 2021, but they will look to get back to the playoffs in 2022. They went heavy on WR, and are led by a trio of Davante Adams, Deebo Samuel, and DK Metcalf. They are also strong at TE with Kyle Pitts.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 1 RECAP

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 147.6
One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 124.32

Summary:
The Detroit Phantoms have to be one of the most optimistic teams in the league at this point after scoring nearly the highest point-total in a 20+ point win. At first, they started off slow with a Cole Kmet goose-egg. But they heated up alongside star RB Jonathan Taylor, who scored 25.5 points, most of which came in the second half. Their biggest positive surprise, though, was Saquon Barkley, who returned to 2018-form with 30.4 points. If Barkley can perform at a high level all season, the Phantoms could have one of the best RB pairings in league history. That would also be supplemented by Javonte Williams and AJ Dillon, who each scored just around 15 points. As it stands, their biggest concern is at the TE position, as Cole Kmet's predicted breakout did not show any signs of occuring in Week 1. It is still early, but the team does not have another TE on the roster, so they may need to look to the trade market or waiver wire if Kmet continues to dud. Even still, the Phantoms seemed primed to contend in 2022. It was a similar story to 2021 for One Man Revolution, who scored a solid total of points but faced a tough matchup. They started on an optimistic note, with Gabriel Davis scoring the first touchdown of the NFL season, and a strong game from Jalen Hurts. But their luck flipped on Sunday afternoon, as Aaron Jones and Austin Ekeler combined for 18 points. In 2021, Aaron Jones performed similarly, which is a concern for One Man Revolution. Another concern is the injury to Dak Prescott. Although they do not directly have Dak on the roster, they do have Dalton Schultz, who was a key beneficiary from Prescott's play in 2021. Their team may still be in good shape, but there are definitely concerns going forward again.

iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 148.82
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 101.06

Summary:
The defending champion picked up right where they left off in 2021, scoring the highest point total in the league this week. Their biggest performance came from Justin Jefferson, who scored an incredible 34.9 points. Jefferson appears to be on pace to be the WR1 or 2 overall this season, which would be huge for the defending champ. But, like last year, their RB play was incredibly strong. D'Andre Swift appears to be set for another strong season, and he scored 25 points this week. Nick Chubb was also solid, scoring 14.8, but there are once again concerns that Kareem Hunt may vulture away red zone targets and TDs from him. Antonio Gibson, who was widely lambasted by fantasy experts in the summer, was actually quite good, scoring 16.5. The team could have hit the 160+ mark, but George Kittle was ruled out with a late injury, so they had to scramble to find a replacement. Irv Smith was that replacement, but he put up a goose-egg. Hopefully for the defending champ, Kittle's injury will be minor, but it's still a concern going forward. Even still, they appear to have one of the strongest rosters in the league at the early point. Points-wise, it was disappointing for the Atomic Pickles, as they barely passed the century-mark. Their week got off to a terrible start as Cam Akers scored zero points on Thursday. The week also ended on a rough note, as franchise QB Dak Prescott will miss a few weeks with a hand injury, and only scored just over 4 points. They will likely rely on Trevor Lawrence, so the second-year QB will need to break out for the Pickles to find success. Despite these negatives, the Pickles received some strong efforts, mainly from the dependable Davante Adams, who scored 25.1 points. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who was also criticized like Antonio Gibson, surprised with 20.9 points. Kareem Hunt was also strong, scoring 21. Kyle Pitts was a major let-down, though, but he should be able to bounce back in the future. Even though it was a tough loss, the Pickles can still recover if they can figure out their RB1 and QB positions.

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 129.98
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 120.98

Summary:
After a disappointing finish in 2021, Auto Pilot returned with a vengeance in 2022, winning their first game. They autodrafted, but it appears they have a solid roster. They were led by their WR duo of Ja'Marr Chase and AJ Brown, who each scored over 20 points. Jaylen Waddle was also strong at WR, scoring 15.7. Their RBs were solid as well, with James Conner and Miles Sanders each scoring around 15. Alvin Kamara, in contrast, was disappointing, scoring just 6. There are currently multiple concerns around Kamara, which were only amplified this week. Tom Brady was also underwhelming, scoring just 10 points. There are some optimistic signs on the bench for Auto Pilot as well, mainly Jerry Jeudy and Christian Kirk, who each scored around the 15 point mark. If they can continue this pace, Auto Pilot would boast one of the deepest benches in the league. At 1-0, it appears they will have a better season than last year. Teiyo Tomozawas had the closest loss of the week, which has to sting. Their week got off to a great start with Josh Allen dropping 31.48 points, although Dawson Knox scored just 1. On Sunday, it was made clear that their flexes could cause them some issues this year, as Hunter Renfrow and Brandon Aiyuk combined for just about 9 points. In Aiyuk's defense, though, weather conditions in Chicago were terrible, and he did make a key catch. They also have James Robinson on the bench, who may be startable after a 19.4-point showing. Also, their RB 1/2 and WR 1/2 were strong, as each of them scored over 12 points. Heartbreakingly, if they would have started Pittsburgh's defense instead of San Francisco's, they would have won, but one can't blame them for going with the better matchup. While they are 0-1, there is no need to panic at all.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 123.5
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 105.76

Summary:
After making fun of The Jared Goff Lion Experience's draft strategy in the week leading up to the season, it was a must-win for Team Griffith, and they delivered. Last season, The Jared Goff Lion Experience rode the Patrick Mahomes-Travis Kelce stack into the championship game, but they lost to that same duo this week as they combined for over 56 points. These performances were crucial for Team Griffith, as many other players, like Breece Hall and Rashaad Penny underwhelmed. Elijah Mitchell also scored just 4 points, but that was not his fault because he left the game due to injury. Mitchell will miss the next two months, which is concerning for Team Griffith as non-Carson Wentz players scored just 15 total points. They will likely have to bank in Christian McCaffrey returning to 2019 form, which is still possible. He scored just 13, but was limited due to gamescript. It is clear that the Mahomes-Kelce stack will be dangerous again, which should work in Team Griffith's favor. The Jared Goff Lion Experience lost the first game of the year, which was something they were not used to with their undefeated start last year. Their biggest letdowns were Derrick Henry, David Montgomery, and CeeDee Lamb. Henry scored just 8 points, showing his biggest issue in fantasy- which is that he does not have the receiving upside to make up for when he does not score rushing TDs. CeeDee Lamb was negatively affected by Dak Prescott's injury, and David Montgomery could not overcome the poor Chicago weather. Keenan Allen is also another concern for the team, as he suffered a hamstring injury that could linger for the next few weeks. The two most positive signs were Amon-Ra St. Brown, who scored 16.4 points, and Buffalo's defense, who scored 18 points despite a seemingly-tough matchup. It is clear that the Jared Goff Lion Experience will need their RBs to step up to turn things around.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 120.02
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 95.92

Summary:
Los Angeles picked up right where they left off before last season's playoff disappointment, starting 1-0. Solid performances categorized their week, and they got off to a great start with 25.3 points from Cooper Kupp. Lamar Jackson started a bit slow, but finished strong with 20 points. Along with that, Rashod Bateman scored 12, and he appears poised for a breakout season in 2022. At the same time, Mark Andrews disappointed with just 7 points, but he was involved in 94% of the team's plays, which is a huge sign that positive regression is near. Right now, RBs may be the biggest need for the team. Leonard Fournette led the way with 14.7 points, but other RB Damien Harris scored just 6.8. No other RBs scored over 3 points, which is a big concern for the Aodgers, so they may have to look to the trade or waiver market for RB help. Their plan is clearly to ride their WRs, which worked out for them this week. Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad also struggled at the RB position, as none of their starting backs scored over 10 points. On one hand, they did have Cordarelle Patterson score over 20 off their bench, which is a positive sign. On the other, Najee Harris appears to be suffering from a significant injury, and he would be a huge loss. Another worrying sign was DeVonta Smith's no-show, as the second-year receiver didn't score a single point. At the same time, though, Jalen Hurts promised to involve Smith more, which will be necessary for the Cig Squad to improve. Also, Stefon Diggs was as great as usual, scoring 22.2, meaning the Cig Squad can pencil in a top-5 WR almost every week. While there are plenty of worrying signs, the Cig Squad can still bounce back.

Alvin Lockhart Division
iPump Plastic 1-0
Detroit Phantoms 1-0

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 2 RECAP

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 115.18
One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 115.12

Summary:
With the switch to decimal-based scoring, this was officially the closest win in MLBPPWORLD fantasy history. Heading into Monday Night's game, Teiyo Tomozawas needed Josh Allen, Dalvin Cook, and Dawson Knox to outscore Jalen Hurts by 9 points. Allen did his part, scoring 29.68 in an absolute demolition of Tennessee. However, Dawson Knox struggled again, scoring just 6.1. Dalvin Cook was an even bigger disappointment, scoring just 5.6, and he almost cost his team the game. However, a late catch on a checkdown in garbage time propelled Teiyo Tomozawas to a narrow victory, so far the most shocking of the year. Special teams was huge for them, as Evan McPherson and San Francisco's defense each scored 13. It was a much-needed win for Teiyo Tomozawas, who improved to 1-1. It was a stunning loss for One Man Revolution, and yet another heartbreaking, false hope Monday night loss. They probably should have scored more than they did, as Jalen Hurts and Aaron Jones each scored over 30. However, there were several astounding clunkers, especially Darnell Mooney, who was fully healthy and scored less than a point. The team originally slated Nyheim Hines to start, but they switched him out at the last moment, and this decision directly cost them the game. Dalton Schultz also scored less than a point, but he left due to injury. Also, Mike Evans just needed one more point, but he was ejected in the fourth quarter, which probably cost One Man Revolution the win. At 0-2, the team is definitely reeling to start, and worried about a third-straight missed postseason.

iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 117.06
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 111.6

Summary:
The defending champion is off to a hot start, improving to 2-0. They are riding the wave of what has been an elite RB core, with Nick Chubb and D'Andre Swift combining for 45 points. It was a huge week for Chubb, who scored 30.8. The most impressive part of this win, though, was that iPump Plastic won without even starting a TE. George Kittle missed the game with an injury, and the team did not want to drop Kirk Cousins. Kittle's injury status is still uncertain, but he will need to return as the team needs to eventually start a TE. The game was probably closer than it was expected to be, as Justin Jefferson scored just 7.8 after his Week 1 explosion. Jefferson faces a weak Detroit secondary next week, so he should be able to have another strong performance. At 2-0, IPump Plastic appears to be one of the better teams in the league once again. Team Griffith dropped this one mostly due to the Thursday Night fantasy curse. Generally, Thursday Night Football games are quite ugly offensively, and this was true for Kansas City. Juju Smith-Schuster scored just 2.5 points, and Travis Kelce scored an uncharacteristic 7.6. Even Patrick Mahomes was average, scoring 17.5. Tyreek Hill did all he could to offset his former teammates' struggles, scoring 36.5, but it was not enough. The biggest concern for Team Griffith right now is the flex position, as Rashaad Penny and Rex Burkhead both failed to score 2 points. Their bench has also failed to make an impact, so the team has a bit of a depth problem at the moment, exacerbated by Elijah Mitchell's injury.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 78.6
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 179.32

Summary:
The Los Angeles Aodgers have returned to their end of the 2021 regular season form, defeating the Atomic Pickles by over 100. Their leader was Lamar Jackson, who scored 42.62 in a classic game. Mark Andrews was a direct beneficiary of this outing, scoring 21.2 in a bounceback, and Rashod Bateman also benefitted, scoring 18.8 thanks to a 75-yard touchdown. These performances showcased the value of team-stacking, which is a growing industry trend at the moment. Cooper Kupp was also as dependable as usual, scoring 26.3, and Mike Williams set the tone with 21.3 on Thursday. The RB position was the biggest question mark heading in for Los Angeles, but Damien Harris and Leonard Fournette combined for 23, which is solid given everyone else. Although, Damien Harris is injured and may be forced to miss time. Tony Pollard was solid this week, though, scoring over 17, so the Aodgers could potentially rely on him. At 2-0 and at the top of the power rankings, it is hard for the Aodgers to not be excited for this roster. The Pickles fell to 0-2 with a rough loss. Their team may be tied to Davante Adams' performances, and he disappointed with 8 points, so the Pickles also underwhelmed. Kyle Pitts has been one of the biggest fantasy disappointments this year, and he scored just 2.9 points. RB is the biggest question mark for the Pickles thus far, as Clyde Edwards-Helaire was the only player to score over ten points. It is not all doom-and-gloom, though, as Garrett Wilson scored 26 points, and looks to be a valuable start going forward. The season is not over for the Pickles, but they will desperately need to find their first win soon.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 110.76
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 145.86

Summary:
The Jared Goff Lion Experience's quest for a third-straight playoff appearance took a huge step forward with a huge win this week. The last three seasons, they have shown a proficiency for finding absolute steals at WR (Jefferson/Metcalf in 2020, Kupp in 2021). This time, it appears to Amon-Ra St. Brown who is continuing the streak, as he scored a remarkable 34.9 this week. Justin Herbert also stepped up despite a clear injury, scoring 23.1. It will be imperative for the Jared Goff Lion Experience that Herbert be healthy going forward, so it will be interesting to see how his health is managed. Special teams has been a clear strength for the team, as Buffalo's defense scored 22 in a demolition of the Titans, and Brandon McManus also added 12 points. The biggest question for the team, though, is related to Tennessee's struggles. Derrick Henry scored just 8.5 points, and the #1 overall pick has been quite disappointing this year. If Tennessee's offense is as bad as it has looked this year, Henry will not benefit from red zone opportunities and carries, which will sink his value. Even still, The Jared Goff Lion Experience showed they can still win without Henry at his best. Last week, the Phantoms appeared to boast one of the best RB duos in the league with Saquon Barkley and Jonathan Taylor. This week, they combined for 16 after combining for 50 in Week 1. For Taylor, the concern is that a poor Indianapolis offense will make his gamescript unfavorable, and for Barkley, the concern is general consistency. Even still, they should each be able to return to form in the coming weeks. Russell Wilson and Denver's offense are also concerns, as Wilson scored just 11, and Javonte Williams just 9. If one had to guess, each of these players should be able to return to form, but the Phantoms will need them to in order to find success.

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 121.98
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 141.38

Summary:
It was the Stefon Diggs game for the Cig Squad, as the Bills' star WR carried them to a walkoff victory on Monday Night. Diggs scored a remarkable 38.8, the best performance of the week. Aside from Diggs, Kyler Murray also impressed with 25, and Tee Higgins recovered from injury to score over 16. These three performances were pivotal in ensuring the Cig Squad's win, but also performers like Dallas Goedert and DJ Moore were solid as well. Right now, the biggest question is at the RB position, as Najee Harris and Josh Jacobs combined for just 19. Cordarrelle Patterson also struggled despite his 20-pointer last week, scoring just 4. But, like with many of the other teams in the league, trading off RB production for dependable WR production seems to be the winning strategy this year, and it is what the Cig Squad is currently relying on. Also, their bench depth looks solid, with Jahan Dotson scoring over 15 for Washington, and Devonta Smith receiving more targets. With the win, the Cig Squad has to be feeling better about their roster than they were after the draft. Auto Pilot lost despite a decent performance. Their flexes were especially great, with Curtis Samuel and Christian Kirk each nearing the 20-point mark. Christian Kirk has been a key pickup this season, and he appears to have WR2 potential going forward. The team also did not start Jaylen Waddle, who scored 34.8. Waddle actually outscored both Ja'Marr Chase and AJ Brown, who each disappointed after strong first weeks. Alvin Kamara's injury situation has set Auto Pilot back a bit, and they need to rely on Miles Sanders and James Conner at RB. However, James Conner also suffered an injury, so their RB room looks a bit shaky at the moment. Even still, they have a solid foundation of WRs that could be useful in the trade market, as it appears they need a RB to turn to.

Standings:
Alvin Lockhart Division
iPump Plastic 2-0

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 3 RECAP

The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 106.18
One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 100.1

Summary:
The Jared Goff Lion Experience etched out a close 6-point victory. Things were looking frustrating on Monday Night, as CeeDee Lamb struggled with multiple drops. However, in the fourth quarter, Lamb caught multiple passes and scored a 1-yard touchdown, which clinched the win. It should have been a bigger margin of victory, but David Montgomery left the game early with an injury. His replacement, Khalil Herbert, was one of the highest fantasy scorers this week, so Montgomery likely would have had a big week. Montgomery was not the only one struggling with injury, as Justin Herbert was a late gametime decision. He decided to suit up and play, but he scored just 12 points in a blowout loss. Herbert returning to health will be a key need for the Jared Goff Lion Experience going forward, so it is for sure a story to watch. On the positive side, though, Derrick Henry gave his best effort of the season, scoring 22.8. This was pivotal in the win, and the Lion Experience will need their #1 pick to continue producing if they want to return to the postseason. For One Man Revolution, it looks to be a third-straight missed postseason, as they've gotten off to their second 0-3 start in three seasons. Jalen Hurts has been the only positive for this team, and he did all he could again to win, scoring 27.6. Once again, though, this was not enough. They invested heavily in the RB position during the draft, and this strategy has paid off horribly. Aaron Jones, Austin Ekeler, and Travis Etienne have all been atrocious, as none of them scored over double digits this week. Their WRs have not fared well either, especially with Mike Evans missing. Brandin Cooks and Gabe Davis each barely produced in the game. In fact, late replacement Tyler Lockett was their leading non-Jalen Hurts scorer with 12 points. In sum, it has been an atrocious season for the only winless team in the league, and they appear to be looking at a third-straight missed playoffs.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 151.62
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 103.78

Summary:
There is a clear frontrunner in 2022 thus far: the Los Angeles Aodgers. Currently, they are the only 3-0 team, and they have been absolutely smashing the competition, winning by almost 50 after winning by over 100. They have shown the value of team-stacking, with Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews dominating. The pair looks like the 2019 versions of themselves, as they combined for just about 64 points this week. Cooper Kupp is also a reliable piece, although he scored less than his usual total this week with 14.4. This season, it appears teams that invested in WRs are better-off than teams that invested in RBs, and the Aodgers are proving this point. Damien Harris and Leonard Fournette combined for a passable 20, but this is easier to overcome with WRs, TEs, and Lamar Jackson playing as they are. Also, Leonard Fournette's volume is promising, and he could be poised to eventually return to 2021-form. If this happens, Los Angeles may be unstoppable, and the only game they may lose is Baltimore's bye week. Team Griffith is currently struggling with depth issues, especially at the flex position. Elijah Mitchell's injury has been tough to overcome, and they have turned to Rashaad Penny and J.D. McKissic at flex, which has not been working well. However, Dalvin Cook is injured, so Alexander Mattison may be a reliable fill-in there. Also, the KC stack of Mahomes, Smith-Schuster, and Kelce has been solid, but not as strong as LA's Baltimore stack. Tyreek Hill, the former Chief, was also a no-show this week, scoring 4 after going off in Week 2. At 1-2, Team Griffith is in a bit of a hole, but if KC performs better and they figure out their flex spot, they can be in contention still.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 140.2
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 108.06

Summary:
After a last-second win last week, it was a much more comfortable win for Teiyo Tomozawas. Josh Allen was dependable as usual, scoring 26.7. Aside from him, it was more of an all-around team effort. Dalvin Cook played much better than he did in Week 2, scoring 13 instead of 5. However, he suffered a shoulder injury that may cause him to miss next week. They do not have Alexander Mattison, and their bench has been struggling, so it may be a major void without Cook. However, James Robinson has been a revelation, making a quick return from an achilles injury. J-Rob is nearing RB1 status again, and he scored 19 this week. Chase Edmonds was also in his best shape of 2022, scoring 15. Another positive was Marquise Brown, who scored over 20 without a touchdown, which is a positive sign for volume. Ultimately, Teiyo Tomozawas' RBs look strong, with the exception of Joe Mixon. Despite this, the volume has been there for Mixon, so he should be able to bounce back quite soon. At a strong 2-1, Teiyo Tomozawas appear to be in the running for another playoff berth. For the Cig Squad, their success clearly seems tied to Stefon Diggs. Last week, when Diggs went off for 38, they won handedly. This week, when Diggs scored just 10, they lost. It was also a frustrating game as DeVonta Smith and Cordarelle Patterson each went off for over 20 points, but neither started. Depending on how you look at it, though, this could be a good thing, as it shows the Cig Squad has depth. They scored 100 points from the bench, which is difficult to do. They key for them may be to get their RBs going, as Josh Jacobs and Najee Harris have been pedestrian all year. If they can return to 2021 form, the Cig Squad can be a solid team, especially when Diggs is at his best.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 94.46
iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 91

Summary:
Despite having the lowest point total of any winner this week, the Phantoms still improved to 2-1. There were definitely some positive signs, like Saquon Barkley, who bounced back from a rough week to score 20 in a clutch Monday Night performance. Aside from Barkley, however, the rest of the team disappointed. Jonathan Taylor has been pedestrian the last two weeks, scoring just ten this week. Also, Denver's offensive struggles have hurt the Phantoms in a major way, as they stacked the offense. This week, Russell Wilson, Courtland Sutton, and Javonte Williams combined for just about 29 points. Courtland Sutton has been the best of this group, scoring 13.7 points, but there is definitely room for improvement. They desperately need QB Russell Wilson to perform much better, as Wilson's best performance has been just 17.8 points so far this season. Also, the TE position has been haunting the Phantoms all season, as Gerald Everett could not build off a strong Week 2, scoring just 3.5. Cole Kmet did not fare much better with 5. For the Phantoms to improve upon their 2-1 start, they will need Jonathan Taylor to find more success, Denver's offense to improve, and a consistent option at TE. Optimistically, all of these seem plausible. After a great 2-0 start, it was a rough loss for the defending champion, with a late Saquon Barkley touchdown sinking them. Joe Burrow and Nick Chubb were the two biggest positives, each scoring over 15. D'Andre Swift has been excellent this year, but he suffered a injury that limited him in Week 3. Swift may miss Week 4, but luckily for IPump Plastic, they planned ahead and selected Jamaal Williams as a handcuff. Williams scored 23.7 this week, so he will likely step in as a strong replacement. Also, Justin Jefferson has been inexplicably poor after his great start. This week, Jefferson scored just 2.9, which was almost inexplicable because of a seemingly easy matchup. Experts believe Jefferson should be able to recover, so it is not time to panic over him yet. The Chargers' defense lost IPump Plastic 6 points, so if they did not start a defense, they actually would have won this week. IPump Plastic face the last place team in the league next week, so they should be able to improve to 3-1 if things go well.

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 90.24
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 118.78

Summary:
After a rough 0-2 start, the Atomic Pickles won their first game of the year in a solid effort. Trevor Lawrence appears to have arrived, scoring over 25 this week. With Prescott out, it would be huge for the Pickles to have a solid QB option emerge in Lawrence. Aside from Lawrence, most of the team was solid, doing just enough to win. Clyde Edwards-Helaire scored 12 points, but he had just 7 carries, so the volume may not be there for him. Davante Adams and Deebo Samuel appeared to be a formidable WR duo heading into the season, but they have been pedestrian so far, combining for 23. They should be able to return to form soon, which would be huge for the Pickles. There were several positive signs, however. The first came from Kyle Pitts, who was targeted more to the tune of 11 points. Also, Cam Akers looked much better, scoring 10 points, a huge improvement from his zero-point outing in Week 1. Also, Devin Singletary scored 19.6 and dominated touches. With these two looking better, the Pickles could have solid flex options, which would put them in a better position going forward. Auto Pilot fell to 1-2 with a rough loss. This week, their scoring leader was Christian Kirk, who scored 16.2. Right now, their biggest concern is at RB, as none of their starting RBs scored in double digits. However, backup RB Khalil Herbert scored a remarkable 29.9 filling in for David Montgomery. With Montgomery set to miss time, Herbert could be poised to put up RB1/2 numbers in the next week or so. Also, AJ Brown was solid, but he did not start. Auto Pilot will probably start him frequently going forward, which would help their scoring total. Their biggest concern right now, though, is at TE. Darren Waller has been a major letdown, scoring just over 3 points this week. TE has been a bit of a wasteland in 2022, so it is not like they are far behind in that regard. Ultimately, though, the team will need RB and TE improvements to improve their record.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 4 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 159.96
iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 121.28

Summary:
After a brutal 0-3 start, One Man Revolution won their first game of the season. It was quite a cathartic performance, as many players finally performed well after slow starts. The first of these was Austin Ekeler, who scored 31.9. This was the first time he scored over 15 all season, and it was much needed. Also, Mike Evans scored 26 after returning from a suspension. If Evans had played last week, the team may have eeked out a victory, and they probably would have won in Week 2 as well if he did not get ejected. This shows Evans's overall importance to the team, as he will make-or-break their WR production. Also, Brandin Cooks performed better than usual, scoring a long touchdown and finishing with 15.2. Gabe Davis, in contrast, struggled once again, as he is clearly limited due to injury. If Davis cannot return to health, it will be difficult for One Man Revolution to continue this type of output. Even still, they feel much better about their team as compared to a week ago. iPump Plastic fell to 0-2 despite a strong start. Joe Burrow came on late Thursday night to score 20, and Justin Jefferson recovered from two rough outings to score 26. Nick Chubb and Jamaal Williams were also great, scoring around the 20-point mark. Each of these players (Williams taking Swift's spot) will be huge for the defending champion going forward, and Justin Jefferson returning to form is a great sign for them. Outside of these players, though, there were some question marks. After a great last two weeks, Amari Cooper disappeared, scoring just one point. Also, George Kittle's primary role now seems to be blocking, which will sink his fantasy output. At the same time, JK Dobbins scored over 20 in his second game of the season. So, if Dobbins continues to perform well, he can replace one of the underperformers. At 2-2, iPump Plastic are right in the midst of a crowded playoff picture.

Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 147.48
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 132.8

Summary:
Usually, the Cig Squad's performances are tied to Stefon Diggs, but that was not the case this time. Diggs scored just 8.2, one of the lowest totals on the team. Despite this, they won in convincing fashion. Josh Jacobs, who received much scrutiny in the offseason, had a breakout performance, leading with 32 points. Dameon Pierce, who received much hype in the offseason, justified expectations with a 22.9 point showing, driven by a major touchdown run. Tee Higgins was also great, setting the tone with over 20 points Thursday. As far as concerns, there is mainly one: Najee Harris. Harris has struggled in 2022, and he is not receiving as many targets and carries as he did in 2021. However, Pittsburgh switched to Kenny Pickett at QB, which could help Harris in a big way. If this happens, the Cig Squad could be poised for a playoff return, especially if Diggs re-finds his stride. The Jared Goff Lion Experience became one of the many 2-2 teams with the loss. T.J. Hockenson did all he could to avoid the loss, scoring a stunning 35.9 points, which is one of the best performances by a TE in recent memory. Derrick Henry was also great, scoring 22.2. If Henry can continue to perform well, The Jared Goff Lion Experience may have made an excellent move by selecting him instead of the now-injured Jonathan Taylor. Although, Henry's production is highly game-script dependent. CeeDee Lamb was also great, and it is good for The Lion Experience to see him perform well in Dak Prescott's absence each of these last two weeks. There were some flaws in the roster that sunk the team, and injuries have taken a toll so far. Treylon Burks, Michael Carter, and Marvin Jones were non-existent. If fully healthy, these spots would have been occupied by Keenan Allen, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and David Montgomery. Clearly, then, returning to health will be a major need for The Jared Goff Lion Experience.

Team Griffith (Jag123jg) 159.56
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 92.48

Summary:
With team stacking, when the team you stack is at their best, you are going to have a good week. For Team Griffith, this was exactly the case, as Kansas City's offense tore Tampa Bay's defense to shreds. Patrick Mahomes and Travis Kelce combined for around 45 points, although Juju Smith-Schuster scored just 7-1. Outside of KC, though, Team Griffith was also excellent. Christian McCaffrey scored 21 points in a loss, and appears to be heating up. This week, a lot of underperforming high picks at RB appear to be heating up, which is a good sign for many teams. Also, Rashaad Penny broke out this week, scoring a shocking 28.2 points. Penny did benefit from a favorable matchup, but he should still be a reliable option going forward. Tyreek Hill was also strong, scoring 20. With Tua seeming to be out for a bit, though, Hill's scoring output may drop, although Teddy Bridgewater is a capable backup. An under-the-radar player may be Green Bay's Romeo Doubs. Doubs scored only 11.2 points, but received high praise from Aaron Rodgers, which may suggest an increased role in the future. If this happens, this would solve the team's issues at flex, and would make Team Griffith a playoff contender. It has been rough for the Phantoms recently, especially this week. High pick Jonathan Taylor scored just 2.8 points and left the game due to injury. Taylor may miss some time, which would add to a disappointing campaign for him. Also, Javonte Williams suffered season-ending ACL and LCL tears, which puts the Phantoms in a precarious position at RB. They do have this year's RB1 in Saquon Barkley, though, and Barkley performed well this week with 17.2 points. To solve their RB issues, AJ Dillion will be a key piece, as he has usually hovered around 10 points weekly. He will need to jump into the RB2 range to salvage Detroit's season. There was a positive sign, as Russell Wilson scored 26.98. Wilson struggled up to this point, so a QB breakout would be huge for Detroit. There are major concerns for Detroit right now, but if they can shore up their RB position, they can right the ship.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 89.36
Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 90.4

Summary:
Auto Pilot won in an absolutely close matchup, hanging on at the last possible moment on Monday night. Tua's injury made things difficult, and Tua honestly should not have played this week. If Miami was more responsible with their franchise QB, Auto Pilot could have started Tom Brady, who would have made it a more comfortable win. Auto Pilot's starters struggled this week, especially Jaylen Waddle and Darren Waller. Waller is probably the most concerning out of these two, as he has been underwhelming all season. Actually, Auto Pilot's bench performed better than their starters in some respects. Miles Sanders scored over 28, Josh Reynolds scored 17, and Jerry Jeudy scored 13. If anything, this shows the team has solid depth, and they've rotated the lineup often this season. Special teams was also key for them as Philadelphia's defense came through with 21 points, each of which were absolutely pivotal. Even though they had the lowest point total of any winner this week, there were still many positive takeaways for Auto Pilot. The Aodgers, after a red hot start, dropped their first game of 2022. They showed the downsides to team-stacking, as Baltimore struggled offensively. Lamar Jackson, Mark Andrews, and Rashod Bateman combined for just around 15 points, which sunk the Aodgers. Also, Tony Pollard scored barely over a point, which also set them back. They did not start Damien Harris, a smart move based on matchups, but Harris ended up scoring 12 points against Green Bay. Cooper Kupp did all he could to salvage a late win, and he came one reception away from delivering a walk-off victory. Even though they were defeated, the Aodgers can chalk this one up to poor weather conditions in Baltimore's game. If the weather was clearer, Baltimore could have moved the ball more efficiently, which likely would have given the Aodgers their fourth win. Even still, they are in the driver's seat in the league at the moment.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 117.02
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 115.66

Summary:
Teiyo Tomozawas won in another thriller on Monday night, propelled by San Francisco's regular season dominance of the Rams. San Francisco's defense scored 23 points, including a late pick six and forced fumble, which grabbed victory from the clutches of defeat for Teiyo Tomozawas. This week, Joe Mixon was the team's most promising performer. He only scored 15, but his usage makes him appear to be ready for a breakout. Dalvin Cook was also passable, although he is clearly dealing with a shoulder injury that could limit his output in the near future. The team struggled at WR, which is what kept this game so close. Brandon Aiyuk and Michael Pittman each scored around the 5-point mark. Marquise Brown scored 17.8 on the bench, so he may be the best option at WR2 at the moment. Also, Chase Edmonds and James Robinson struggled at flex. For Robinson, this was likely due to a brutal matchup against a great Philadelphia defense. For Edmonds, though, the trend is more concerning, as Raheem Mostert appears to be out-touching him in the backfield. To solve these flex issues, Chris Godwin will be able to return from IR, which would make Teiyo Tomozawas a better lineup all-around. The Atomic Pickles fell to a highly-dissapointing 1-3. It appeared as if they would make nearly every team in the league 2-2, but San Francisco's defense came on late to force a plethora of turnovers. Deebo Samuel performed well in the same game, but he fell a catch or two shy of leading his team to a win. Right now, the Pickles' WR core is their primary strength, as every single WR scored in double-digits. They will potentially need to find a better RB solution, as their starters combined for just 20. However, Clyde Edwards-Helaire and Devin Singletary have each shown positive usage trends, so they could be better starting options at RB. Cam Akers's poor season has definitely hurt the Pickles, but they are not out of it just yet.
