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.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 5 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 165.56
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 170.08

Summary:
Team Griffith pulled off a Monday Night Miracle in one of the most thrilling games of the season. Heading into the primetime games, it appeared to be a very difficult road. But Justin Tucker gave the team some hope with a 16-point performance, giving Mahomes and Kelce a manageable 40-point deficit against a favorable matchup in the Raiders. But, Kansas City got off to a slow start, scoring just ten points in the first half. At halftime, ESPN gave Team Griffith just a 1% chance to win. They would dramatically reverse these odds. Travis Kelce caught three touchdowns in the second half, and Patrick Mahomes played a clean game to deliver an absolutely stunning victory. Earlier, Breece Hall scored 26.7, Raheem Mostert scored 18.7, and Christian McCaffrey scored 19.9, so these performances were crucial in setting Team Griffith up for the win. Team Griffith needed to be essentially perfect to win this one, and they absolutely were, taking first in their division. It was a heartbreaking loss for One Man Revolution, who looked as if they were going to return to the conversation. Instead, they fall to the same 1-4 hole they could not climb out of last season. It started off slowly for them, as Aaron Jones scored just 9. Once again, Aaron Jones has been a disappointment outside of Week 2, which was the exact case last season. But, in the noon window, it seemed as if their fortunes flipped. When the games kicked off, Gabe Davis scored a 98-yard touchdown- part of his 30-point explosion. Also, first-round pick Austin Ekeler was fantastic, scoring over 30 for the second straight week. Rhamondre Stevenson made his first start for the team, and scored 18.5, taking over New England's backfield. Later, Jalen Hurts was as strong as ever, scoring 27.66. Normally, this would be enough to win, but they needed to be perfect this week to do so. Tyler Lockett outscored Brandin Cooks by over 20, and so starting Lockett instead would have given them the win. This may be a permanent lineup change they consider with Seattle's offense looking strong. Overall, at 1-4, One Man Revolution is staring down a third-straight missed postseason.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 85.56
Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 80.14

Summary:
Although the Detroit Phantoms scored their lowest total of the season, they pulled off a narrow victory. Only two players, Saquon Barkley and Allen Lazard, scored over 10 points. Barkley could have scored more, but he left the game due to a shoulder injury. Barkley has been one of the lone bright-spots for the Phantoms this season, so they will be happy to know that Barkley's injury does not seem too serious. Aside from Barkley, though, most of the team underwhelmed. After showing positive signs last week, Russell Wilson regressed, scoring just over 9 including a key late interception and missed TD pass. Wilson's struggles affected Courtland Sutton, who was only able to score 9.9. Also, AJ Dillon came into the season with significant preseason hype, but he has not lived up to this hype so far. This week was his worst performance as he scored just 3. Clearly, this season for the Phantoms relies on Jonathan Taylor. If Taylor can return to 2021 form, they can put up performances like they did in Week 1. If he cannot, there will likely be more performances like this one. Still, at 3-2, the Phantoms are in the playoff picture. It was a brutal loss for Auto Pilot, as Darren Waller let them down once again. It has been an awful season for Waller, who has just not been able to find a groove. This time, though, it was not his fault, as he left the game with an injury before scoring a point. Still, this injury cost Auto Pilot the game. Also, there were some baffling performances, mainly from AJ Brown, Jaylen Waddle, and Christian Kirk. Each of these receivers started 2022 strong, but have each tapered off. This week, none scored over 5, which sunk Auto Pilot. There was a major positive sign, however. Alvin Kamara, who has disappointed, was strong this week, scoring 20. Kamara's usage looks promising, and if he can become an RB1, Auto Pilot's roster would be much stronger. At 2-3, they have to be thinking they could have easily gotten to 3-2 had Waller remained healthy.

iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 114.9
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 110.52

Summary:
In 2022, there have been several narrow victories, and this game was no exception. The defending champion pulled through in a championship game rematch. Nick Chubb has been making his case for fantasy MVP this season, and he scored 25.4 this week. Chubb's rushing yards are similar to what they were last year, but he is now scoring more touchdowns, which has caused his value to skyrocket. Also, after some baffling performances, Justin Jefferson is seemingly back, as he also scored 25. These two have been the core of iPump Plastic's title defense, and they carried them to the win this week. When D'Andre Swift returns, iPump Plastic could once again make the case for the best RB core in the league, which won them a title last year. There were some disappointments, however, mainly Diontae Johnson, George Kittle, and Ezekiel Elliot. Each of these players were drafted with high selections, but so far their performances have failed to justify where they were selected. Out of them, Elliot is probably the most promising, as Dak Prescott will probably return soon and boost his value. Still, at 3-2, the defending champion is in position for a playoff return. It was a heartbreaking loss for the Jared Goff Lion Experience, who fell just short. At the beginning of the season, Derrick Henry was alarmingly mediocre, but he has completely flipped this narrative. This week, he scored 26.2, and nearly carried his team to the win. Now, Henry is still a highly-matchup dependant RB, as if Tennessee falls behind, he does not have the receiving upside to benefit from this gamescript. Still, Henry continues to prove offseason doubts wrong. Also, David Montgomery was great in an early return from injury, scoring 16.2. This week, it was the team's namesake Detroit Lions that cost them a win, as their Lions players (TJ Hockenson and Amon-Ra St. Brown) combined for just 4.9. Had they performed like they did recently, it would have been a comfortable win for The Jared Goff Lion Experience. Instead, they fell to 2-3, but they are not out of the playoff picture whatsoever.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 123.14
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 107.66

Summary:
It was a solid team effort from the Atomic Pickles, who improved to 2-3. The game would be determined by the Josh Jacobs-Davante Adams teammate matchup. Jacobs was astounding, so the Pickles needed Adams to be at his best, and he was. Adams caught two touchdowns, good enough for 25.9 points and to secure the win. Receivers carried the Pickles to the win overall, as all of them (Adams, Deebo Samuel, DK Metcalf, and Chris Olave) scored in double figures. The Pickles clearly prioritized WR in the draft, and when they are at their best, they will win them games. Although, their RBs were solid as well, with Jeff Wilson scoring 19.7. It was a good decision to bench Cam Akers, as he scored just 3.3. Going forward, though, the Pickles will probably need to figure out a longer-term solution at the RB position, especially next week with Davante Adams on bye. Still, they are among the plethora of 2-3 teams, any of whom can make a run. It was a tough loss for the Cig Squad, but there were still some positive signs. Mainly, Josh Jacobs is emerging as an RB1 in Vegas, and he scored 27.8 points this week. Also, Stefon Diggs was as great as usual, scoring 20.2. Additionally, rookie Dameon Pierce, recipient of much preseason hype, has been consistenly justifiyng said hype. This week, Pierce scored 18.8 in Houston's win. Ultimately, the main reason the Cig Squad lost was because of an injury to Tee Higgins. This injury occured early, so Higgins did not score any points. Usually, Higgins is capable of scoring around 16-17, which would have made the difference in this one. If Higgins is forced to miss some time, it may be difficult for the Cig Squad to replace him. Their best hope would be for Carolina WR DJ Moore to be traded, which is possible since his name has recently appeared in trade rumors. At 2-3, they will need something to put them above the several teams tied with them. For this to happen, Najee Harris absolutely must be better than he has been this year. Harris scored just 5 this week, which is unacceptable for a first round pick. Now, Harris did suffer from a negative gamescript, so he may perform better in a closer game with Pickett. Still, the Cig Squad will need him to return to 2021 form if they are to make the postseason.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 140.96
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 128.16

Summary:
It was a battle for the top standings spot in the league, and Teiyo Tomozawas came through. Josh Allen has been incredible for them all season, and he continued that this week, scoring a remarkable 35.16 points. Allen has surpassed 20 points every week this season, and is showing no signs of slowing down. Also, Dalvin Cook was great, scoring 25.1. Cook has been a bit inconsistent this year, but he showed he still has RB1 potential if he can stay healthy. Although Joe Mixon only scored 10 points, his usage is still promising, as he dominates the Bengals' backfield. Because of this, an explosion game should be coming in the near future. Marquise Brown has been pivotal for Teiyo Tomozawas this year, and he was great for a third straight week with a 17.8 point outing (the same total as last week). Finally, San Francisco's defense has been huge for the Tomozawas this year, winning them a game last week. This week, they were just as pivotal with a 17-point outing. These performances masked some issues at flex, where Chris Godwin and James Robinson combined for just around 13 points. Out of these, Robinson is probably the most concerning as he saw his gamescript drop. Even with these issues, they are relatively minor, and the first-place team seems poised for another playoff return. The Aodgers started off hot at 3-0, but they have dropped their last two. Lamar Jackson has not been as strong the last two weeks, which mostly explains the struggles. This week, Jackson scored just 14, missing a key throw to an open receiver. He also threw some questionable interceptions. If Jackson continues to struggle, it will be difficult for the Aodgers to be as strong as they were in the first three weeks. In positive news, Leonard Fournette was absolutely dominant, scoring 30.9 points. Fournette had struggled heading into this one, but it was only a matter of time before he finally got going. Also, Cooper Kupp and Mike Williams are one of the most dependable WR cores in the league. The team could have won had Damien Harris stayed healthy, but Harris suffered an injury and missed a favorable matchup versus Detroit. It is unknown how much time Harris will miss, but the Aodgers wisely stashed Seattle RB Kenneth Walker, who is emerging as the starter on an explosive offense. With this, Los Angeles can be even stronger than before, which is scary for the league.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 6 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 113.5
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 86.6

Summary:
After a stunning loss in which they allowed 170 points last week, One Man Revolution was due for some matchup luck, and they got some this week. They are most excited about running-back Rhamondre Stevenson, who scored 23.1 points this week. Stevenson is an RB1 without Damien Harris, but the question remains of how he will perform when Harris returns. Also, Austin Ekeler got off to a slow start, but he has rebounded to become the highest-scoring back so far this season, justifying his top-3 selection. While these performers provided optimism, there were also numerous concerns. The biggest is Aaron Jones, who has been a massive letdown once again in 2022. This week, he scored just a meager 5.9 and struggled to see the field. Also, third-round pick Mike Evans has been mediocre since his explosion in Week 4, as he scored just 6.2 this week. Finally, Tyler Lockett cooled down, scoring less than 3 points. Ultimately, the biggest question for One Man Revolution is at the WR position, as Evans-Davis-Lockett-Cooks has been a below average position group. If they, along with Aaron Jones, can pick it up, One Man Revolution may sneak into the playoff picture. It was a rough week for the Atomic Pickles, who featured some of the week's biggest disappointments. Jeff Wilson, who has scored in double-digits for each of the last four weeks, scored less than a point. Clyde Edwards-Helaire, who has been solid in 2022, scored just 3.3. Even worse, DK Metcalf scored just 4.4 after a nice 3-week stretch. Clearly, Davante Adams's absence was too tough to overcome, as he carried them to a win last week. There were still some positives, mainly Trevor Lawrence, who scored over 24. Dak Prescott is slotted to return next week, so the Pickles face an interesting decision as to who to start at QB. Also, Robert Tonyan scored 14 points, which was 10 over his projection. Kyle Pitts has been a massive letdown for the Pickles, but if Tonyan is solid, this would soften the blow a bit. Overall, Davante Adams' bye was too difficult to overcome, especially with several no-shows.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 127.86
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 124.22

Summary:
It was a battle of two of the league's top teams, and it was another narrow victory for Teiyo Tomozawas. Each of these teams have played in extremely close games recently, so this one was bound to be a thriller. As always, Josh Allen was his team's top performer, scoring 26.36. Following him was Michael Pittman, who scored 19.9. Pittman had struggled along the entire Colts' offense, but they appear to be waking up as of late, which would be great for the league's best team so far. Also, Dalvin Cook and Joe Mixon each scored 14.8. Joe Mixon has gotten off to a bit of an average start, but the workload and target share is there for him to continue to improve. The biggest concern, though, occured when Marquise Brown left the game with an injury. Brown may miss a good portion of the season with this injury, unfortunately. Luckily for Teiyo Tomozawas, though, Brandon Aiyuk has been performing well lately, and he scored over 23 points. It would have been frustrating if they lost with him on the bench, but now it is more relieving to have a potential replacement for Brown. At 5-1, Teiyo Tomozawas stand over the field, and they could be in great position for another playoff return. Team Griffith is 3-3, but this is an unlucky record. Still, they still should be a playoff team if things go their way. This week, they fell just short of another big win. They started Mike Boone over Juju Smith-Schuster, which ultimately cost them 19 points and the win. Raheem Mostert also disappointed, scoring just 5 points, and Romeo Doubs has not been great since he entered the starting lineup. Aside from these players, though, Team Griffith arguably has the best roster in the league. The Mahomes-Kelce combination is always dangerous, and they combined for 34 points this week. Also, Tyreek Hill went off for 23.7 points, proving he is as QB-proof as they come. Christian McCaffrey has also come on as of late, scoring 19 points in a tough matchup and in a bad offense. Lastly but certainly not least, Breece Hall has broken out as an RB1, and he scored 19.1 points. With DeAndre Hopkins returning from suspension, Team Griffith will fix their flex issues, making them a dangerous team.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 117.7
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 73.22

Summary:
The Aodgers returned to their winning ways in a comfortable victory. It was more of a solid team effort, as their leading scorer (Mark Andrews) scored 20 points. But Leonard Fournette and Kenneth Walker were also excellent, each nearing the 20-point mark. Walker especially looks like one of the best picks of the season, as he can be a potential league winner if his gamescript is similar. Cooper Kupp was also okay with 13.2 points, but this was below his expected mark. Lamar Jackson was okay as well, but he has cooled off a bit since his tremendous start. In the first three weeks, Jackson was dominant, scoring 42 and 39 in Weeks 2 and 3, but he has recently been closer to the 15-point mark, which has brought down the Aodgers' average totals. There are also concerns with non-Kupp receivers, as Drake London, Mike Williams, and Elijah Moore have not been targeted much. Rashod Bateman returning to health may be a major part of fixing these WRs issues, so the Aodgers will need that to happen soon. Still, at 4-2 with a power rankings advantage, they have time to get back to Week 1-3 form. It was a tough loss for the Jared Goff Lion Experience, who never really came close in this one. They were already in a tough spot as Derrick Henry, Amon-Ra St. Brown, and TJ Hockenson were on bye. Their replacements- Michael Carter/Phillip Lindsay, Hayden Hurst, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling each failed to make an impact. These are more short-lived concerns, though, as they will not be starting these players once Henry and the Lions players return from bye. There were more pressing concerns, however. Justin Herbert appears to still be suffering from his Week 2 injury, as he scored just 8.42 points with some rough passes. David Montgomery, a key RB2 piece, appears to have fallen out of the Bears' staff's favor, as they claim to be "riding on the hot-hand" at RB. Also, CeeDee Lamb underwhelmed with 10 points. With Prescott returning, though, Lamb's production should increase. Ultimately, Justin Herbert will have to return to elite QB status if the Jared Goff Lion Experience wants to keep their playoff streak alive.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 92.88
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 79.58

Summary:
Although it was not their best week points-wise, the Phantoms benefitted from matchup luck to improve to 4-2. Saquon Barkley has been excellent on a surprising Giants team, and he once again led the Phantoms in scoring with 17. Allen Lazard was also excellent, scoring 15.6. Lazard appears to be emerging as a solid WR2/3 option, which would be a major plus for the Phantoms. Darrell Henderson also seems to be a dependable option, as he has taken over LA's backfield with Cam Akers on his way out. Aside from these performances, the Phantoms left more to be desired. Their WR pair of Terry McLaurin and Courtland Sutton were especially poor this week, combining for 8 points. Also, QB has arguably been the most important position in fantasy this year, and the Phantoms have had issues there. This week, they turned to Geno Smith instead of Russell Wilson, but Smith did not perform as well as he has been recently. Overall, the main story for the Phantoms will be whether they can continue to win until Jonathan Taylor returns to full health. If Taylor can return and perform at his 2021 level (seeming more likely with the Colts' recent offensive uptick), the Phantoms can contend for a playoff spot despite their low power ranking. Bye weeks sunk the Cig Squad this week, as they were without two of their most important pieces in Dameon Pierce and Josh Jacobs. If these two had both played, the Cig Squad almost certainly would have won this week. Instead, with an extremely dry waiver wire, they turned to Nyheim Hines, who was ruled out due to injury. A zero-point performance is always tough to overcome, especially at the RB2 spot. This was made worse when Dallas Goedert and DJ Moore combined for just 5 points. Additionally Najee Harris's struggles continued, as even though he scored a touchdown, he still finished with just 11 points. Najee has just not been able to get it going in 2022, which has made things difficult for his team. Stefon Diggs has done all he can to carry his team this season, and that continued with a 25.8 point showing this week. But overall, it has been a tough start for the Cig Squad, who now find themselves on the outside looking in at the playoff picture.

iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 103.5
Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 136.36

Summary:
After a rough last few weeks, Auto Pilot may have just turned their season around. The main symbol of this is star WR Ja'Marr Chase, who after struggling a bit to start the season, now returned to WR1 status with a 28.7 point game. The biggest surprise, though, was waiver pickup Deon Jackson, who scored a huge 23.1 points. He did suffer an injury that may hamper his long-term value, but he was huge in giving his team their third win. Further, after also struggling at the season's beginning, Alvin Kamara appears to be coming on as of late. This week, he scored 15 points as he slowly seems to be gaining more usage. Right now, the biggest question for the team may be at QB. Tom Brady, dealing with personal issues, has been mediocre all season, which has hurt Auto Pilot. This week, they are slotted to start Tua Tagovailoa in his return from injury, which Auto Pilot hopes to help with their QB uncertainty. If this uncertainty is fixed, and Kamara/Chase can perform up to their draft expectations, Auto Pilot may be in shape for playoff contention. For iPump Plastic, it has been a rough last few weeks. Joe Burrow has been the exception to this, though. This week, Burrow scored a remarkable 32.5 points, though many of those went to Ja'Marr Chase, which is always frustrating as a fantasy manager. Aside from Burrow, though, the rest of the team under-performed. The defending champion always relies heavily on RBs, but they let him down this week. Nick Chubb, Melvin Gordon, and JK Dobbins combined for under ten points, which is simply not good enough. On the flip-side, Ezekiel Elliot was strong, scoring 15 despite trailing by three scores. If Elliot can turn his season around, iPump Plastic can continue to rely on strong RB play. The biggest question for them, though, centers around when D'Andre Swift will return from his injury. Swift has been great overall this year, and iPump Plastic certainly misses having him as an option. A Swift return, paired with an Elliot resurgence and a great season from Chubb, could put iPump Plastic in a good position to repeat, but they will need this to happen soon.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 7 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 145.74
Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 118.94

Summary:
One Man Revolution started the season off extremely slow, largely due to struggles from their running-back core. Austin Ekeler, Aaron Jones, Travis Etienne, and Rhamondre Stevenson each struggled to begin the year, but their fortunes have flipped as of late. This week, the core combined for an astounding 91 points, which would have been good enough to have been close to winning a few matchups on their own. Travis Etienne also received more good news after the matchup finished, as James Robinson was traded to New York, meaning Etienne will now likely dominate touches. This RB core has made up for a weakness at receiver, reflecting the team's draft strategy. This week, the team's pass-catchers combined for just 27, which is a bit underwhelming. It was especially frustrating as Mike Evans bobbled what would have been a walk-in touchdown, costing the team about 15 points. At first, it looked as if this may cost them the game, but the rest of the team, especially Austin Ekeler, stepped up. Next week, the team will have a chance to return to .500 for the first time since Week 2 of 2021, but they will have to so without Austin Ekeler, making it a tough test. For Auto Pilot, it was a great start Thursday night as Eno Benjamin and Alvin Kamara combined for 35 points, giving the team an early 35-7 lead heading into Sunday. Then, Ja'Marr Chase looked unstoppable, scoring 25 points in just the first half. Eventually, though, Chase slowed down as the gamescript became less favorable, and Auto Pilot's momentum slowed down with this. Kenyan Drake scored less than a point and lost control of the backfield to Gus Edwards, and TE stream Daniel Bellinger left the game with an injury, finishing with just under 2 points. If Auto Pilot were to regain their momentum, they needed Tua Tagovailoa and Jaylen Waddle to deliver an incredible performance, and at first it looked as if they would take a lead heading into Monday night. However, the duo slowed down, and Auto Pilot ultimately lost by 7. It was a tough loss to fall to 3-4, but Auto Pilot is far from done, especially with AJ Brown and Miles Sanders returning from bye.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 151.92
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 86.58

Summary
Team Griffith made an inredible decision by stacking Kansas City Chiefs players in their lineup. This week, Patrick Mahomes, Travis Kelce, and Juju Smith-Schuster combined for just over 60 points. Ever since Kansas City's offense has become almost unstoppable, Team Griffith has been the highest-scoring team in the league, and they now lead the power rankings. Also, focusing on Dolphins players also seems to be a wise choice, as Raheem Mostert and Tyreek Hill combined for just about 30 points. Another important factor in the win was DeAndre Hopkins's return from suspension, as Hopkins scored 15.3 on a whopping 14 targets. Christian McCaffrey also looked solid in his 49ers debut despite limited snaps and a negative gamescript. It was not all great news for Team Griffith, though, as star rookie RB Breece Hall suffered a torn ACL, and will miss the remainder of 2022 as a result. With Hopkins returning, it looked as if Team Griffith would solve their flex issues, but there is now a hole opened up by Hall's injury. They still have a great RB pair with McCaffrey and Mostert, but the team may now be thin at RB. They may lose next week with Kansas City on bye, but Team Griffith still looks like a dangerous team, even with Hall's injury. The Atomic Pickles, meanwhile, fell to 2-5 with another 86-point outing. The RB position has been their biggest flaw this season, and this does not appear to be getting any better. Clyde Edwards-Helaire was shockingly benched, and Jeff Wilson's fantasy value will be diminished as a result of the Christian McCaffrey trade. Their best hope for salvaging the position may be a Kareem Hunt trade from Cleveland, but even then there will still be issues. Their WR core has not been able to minimize the importance of their RB struggles, and this was on display this week. Kyle Pitts has been a historic fantasy bust this season, and he scored only 2 points this time. Also, Deebo Samuel was poor, and his struggles will likely continue when Christian McCaffrey becomes a bigger part of the offense. DK Metcalf suffered an injury and was forced to leave the game early, but luckily for the Pickles, the injury does not seem too significant. Even still, at 2-5 and with major questions at RB, the Pickles face an uphill climb.

The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 105.62
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 103.68

Summary:
The Jared Goff Lion Experience won in a thriller on Monday night- one of many thrilling finishes in 2022 thus far. Heading into the Bears-Patriots game, the team needed 10 points from David Montgomery. At first, it seemed Montgomery would not get to this total, as Khalil Herbert was featured heavily in the second and third quarters. However, the Bears featured Montgomery on a late drive, and he scored a game-winning touchdown for the Lion Experience. Aside from Montgomery, Dallas's defense was the MVP for the Jared Goff Lion Experience this week, as they tore their namesake team apart for 22 key points, which was good enough to lead the team. Derrick Henry's return to the lineup was also a major factor in the win as he scored 15 points. Justin Herbert was also solid with 17, although the Lion Experience would like to see more from him, especially in comparison to other similarly-drafted QBs this year. It probably would have been an easier win, but Amon-Ra St. Brown left the contest due to a head injury, which caused him to finish with less than a point. CeeDee Lamb was also underwhelming at WR, finishing with just 8. This week showed, then, that the Lion Experience will probably need better WR play if they want to make the playoffs. Keenan Allen may be able to provide this if he can return healthy, but this is a question mark at the moment. Teiyo Tomozawas have been involved in many exciting Monday night finishes this year, but this one was less exciting than the other ones. They were in a tough spot coming in as Josh Allen was on a bye week, but they made an excellent pick-up with Daniel Jones, who scored a Josh Allen-like 28 points. But aside from Jones, the rest of the team struggled. Joe Mixon was decent with 16, and Brandon Aiuyk was passable with 11, although it was less than his breakout last week. The biggest reason the team lost, though, was James Robinson's no-show. He finished with no points, losing favor in Jacksonville. Luckily for Teiyo Tomozawas, he was just traded to the Jets, which will very likely boost his value. Ultimately, Dalvin Cook and Josh Allen's bye weeks made it difficult for Teiyo Tomozawas to win this week, but they are still in strong position to make the playoffs thanks to some big wins recently.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 102.5
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 99.1

Summary:
The Aodgers won the second-closest game of the week, holding on for dear life against Jakobi Meyers. This week, it was the Kenneth Walker show for Los Angeles, as he propelled them to the win with a remarkable 28.8-point performance. Walker appears to be an RB1-type player now, making him a great stash for Los Angeles. Also, Mike Williams was solid, scoring 18, but he left the game late due to an injury that may cause him to miss some time. Aside from these performers, the remainder of position players for Los Angeles were underwhelming, especially their Ravens stack. Lamar Jackson scored just 10.7 points, and Mark Andrews shockingly did not score any at all. The team was at their best when the Ravens were dominant offensively, but they have cooled off since then. Los Angeles will need them to return to Week 1-3 form if they want to return to their high-scoring potential. Still, it was a good sign that they won despite Cooper Kupp's bye week, as Kupp is by far their most valuable player. At 5-2, they should be well set for a playoff spot. The Phantoms missed a chance to improve to 5-2 despite a low spot in the power rankings. They came very close, and were even favored to win after Jakobi Meyers caught a touchdown pass Monday night. But after this touchdown, Meyers was silent, and the Phantoms lost as a result. The biggest reason for their loss may have been Tampa's defense. It appeared they were in a smash spot against Carolina, but they somehow only scored 2 points, which sunk the Phantoms. Also, the flex spots have been causing the Phantoms trouble all season, and their flex players combined for an underwhelming 13. The RB pair of Jonathan Taylor and Saquon Barkley were okay, combining for 27, but they will need more out of them to make up for weaknesses at WR. As a positive sign, the team does have Gus Edwards available, and he appeared to take over Baltimore's backfield, so his emergence can solve their flex issues. At 4-3, the Phantoms have a chance to make the postseason, but they will have to eventually improve in the power rankings to do so.

Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 118.76
iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 142.24

Summary:
It was the Joe Burrow show this week for the defending champion, as Burrow scored an incredible 39.24 points. Burrow appears to be entering the top 3-5 fantasy QB picture, which is essential for any good team this season. Also, iPump Plastic's RB pair, Nick Chubb and Ezekiel Elliot, were strong, each scoring 17.7. With Justin Jefferson on bye, they needed pass catchers to step up, and George Pickens and George Kittle did just that, each scoring 15. Ultimately, there were no notable poor performances for iPump Plastic, except maybe Jamaal Williams and Diontae Johnson, but neither have high expectations this season. The main story for the team remains D'Andre Swift's health. If Swift can return soon, he would supplement an already strong RB pair. iPump Plastic have focused heavily on the RB position in each of the last two years, and this is a strategy that continues to pay dividends for them as they seek a return to the playoffs. For the Cig Squad, bye weeks have absolutely killed them in the last two weeks. This week, they had Stefon Diggs, Devonta Smith, and Dallas Goedert on bye. This made things quite difficult, and their chances were worsened when DJ Chark was placed on IR before they had the chance to remove him from the lineup. With this, they were playing from behind. Still, Josh Jacobs appears to be one of, if not, the steal of the draft. This week, he scored a remarkable 35 points, proving offseason doubters incredibly wrong. Dameon Pierce was also decent despite a poor gamescript, as he scored 13. Even DJ Moore, who started the season off poorly, excelled despite a tough matchup on paper. If they had played a different opponent, they may have won this week despite numerous key players on bye. Overall, the story of the season for the Cig Squad has been first-round pick Najee Harris's struggles. Harris has now been benched by the Cig Squad, and the question now if he cannot return to form is whether Pierce, Jacobs, and Diggs can compensate for his absence.

Standings:
Alvin Lockhart Division
Team Griffith 4-3
iPump Plastic 4-3
Detroit Phantoms 4-3
One Man Revolution 3-4
The Jared Goff Lion Experience 3-4

Gilgamesh Star Division
Los Angeles Aodgers 5-2
Teiyo Tomazawas 5-2

1. Team Griffith (944.66)
2. One Man Revolution (924.3)
3. Los Angeles Aodgers (888.68)
4. Teiyo Tomozawas (865.88)

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 8 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 142.6
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 132.84

Summary:
After an abysmal 1-4 start, One Man Revolution now occupies a playoff spot thanks to a 3-game winning streak. In the draft, they strategized heavily around running-backs, and this is now paying major dividends. Travis Etienne, Aaron Jones, and Rhamondre Stevenson combined for 57 points, a solid foundation. The first of these players, Travis Etienne, has taken over Jacksonville's backfield after a slow start to the season, and is now an RB1 going forward. It is always impressive to win with a team's best players on bye, and One Man Revolution has now won in both Jalen Hurts and Austin Ekeler's bye weeks. This week, Jalen Hurts returned in a big way, scoring over 28. If there is any weakness with the team right now, it is at wide receiver. Mike Evans and Tyler Lockett were okay, each scoring double digits, but Gabe Davis appears to be a boom-or-bust option every week. This week, he was a bust, scoring just 4.5. One Man Revolution will need more consistency at the position, but their strength at RB can probably mask the inconsistency. Next week, they face Team Griffith in their biggest fantasy matchup since 2019. There have been some absolute battles between these two teams in the last two seasons, so their Week 9 matchup will be an exciting one to watch. For the Cig Squad, it has been a disappointing season, and they are on the brink of likely elimination from the playoffs with their sixth loss. This week, though, they were much better than recently, aided by a return to full strength in the lineup. Stefon Diggs was strong in his return, scoring just about 20. Also, DJ Moore appears to be breaking out, scoring 24.5 points, including an epic hail mary reception. Kyler Murray was also strong, scoring 24.64. These performances would have led the Cig Squad to a win in most other matchups, but they faced tough matchup luck this week. They had a chance to pull off a win on Monday night, but Tee Higgins was held to 12 points, about ten under what was required. There were two major disappointments: Josh Jacobs and Devonta Smith. Smith had a strong matchup on paper, but most deep targets went to AJ Brown. Josh Jacobs faced a tough matchup, but was hampered by a terrible Vegas offense. Ultimately, the Cig Squad have a strong roster going forward, and can probably pull off some victories, but they are in a difficult hole to overcome.

The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 132.72
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 117.3

Summary:
The Jared Goff Lion Experience may have made one of the best draft decisions of the season, as they selected Derrick Henry over Jonathan Taylor. Taylor has struggled with injuries, inconsistency, and poor O-line play, and has not justified his ADP. Meanwhile, Derrick Henry has been as good as ever in 2022, especially this week. He went off for 35 points against a terrible Houston run defense, which essentially won his team the game. It looked like a tough matchup headed in for the Lion Experience, as Justin Herbert and Keenan Allen were on bye. But streaming option Marcus Mariota was excellent in a shootout, scoring 22.42. CeeDee Lamb was also solid, scoring 16.3, which was his best total since Week 4. Aside from these performances, the rest of the lineup was solid, with no major other standouts or disappointments. At 4-4, the Jared Goff Lion Experience is right in the thick of the playoff picture, and this week's win was a major step in improving their tiebreaker position. For the Atomic Pickles, it has been a season to forget, and Davante Adams's performance this week was emblematic of this. Adams scored a shocking 0.7 points, one of his worst performances ever. Had he scored just 15 or a little more, the Pickles would have returned to the win column. RB has been the team's biggest issue, and their struggles there continued as their starters combined for just 18. More positively, Kyle Pitts showed signs of improvement, finishing with 16.5. But overall, Pitts has still been a major letdown given his ADP. Also, Dak Prescott scored 25, and if he can be a QB1 the rest of the way, the Pickles can have an advantage at a position that has been thin for some teams in 2022. Overall, though, it will be difficult for the Pickles to make a postseason with 6 losses and a difficult tiebreaker position.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 96.22
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 92.38

Summary:
There have been many thrilling victories for Teiyo Tomozawas this season, and this week was no exception. Heading into Monday Night football, they needed just 5 points from Joe Mixon, but he struggled to get there. Finally, in the fourth quarter, Mixon made a few catches and gained some yardage to finish with 9 points, which was enough to grant Teiyo Tomozawas the victory. Generally, Josh Allen has powered the team all season, and it looked like he was going to do so again this week. However, he threw 2 key interceptions in the fourth quarter against Green Bay that almost loomed large. Ultimately, though, Allen still finished with a solid 17. Dalvin Cook was absolutely pivotal in the win, as he finished with 22.6. Brandon Aiyuk was also excellent, finishing with 17.1. Aiyuk has arguably outplayed Deebo Samuel at points this season, which has been major for Teiyo Tomozawas. They probably could have won more comfortably, but there were a few disappointments. James Robinson has cooled off since his hot start, and he finished with just 1.7 this week. Granted, he was adjusting to his new situation, but Teiyo Tomozawas will need more from him going forward. Also, Tyler Higbee struggled, scoring just 2.5. Dawson Knox would have probably been a better option off the bench, but not by much. Even still, Teiyo Tomozawas appear primed for a playoff appearance. It has been a rough season for the Phantoms, signified by Jonathan Taylor's woes. This week, Taylor scored just 5.6, which is absolutely shocking when compared to his performances in 2021. When a team's top pick struggles like this, it will always be tough for them to find success. Courtland Sutton has also been a major letdown when compared to ADP, and he has scored fewer than 5 points in each of his last three games. His teammate Jerry Jeudy may be a better option for the Phantoms at this point. Also, Jakobi Meyers may be a solid option, but the Phantoms did not play him this week, which cost him the win. In the first week of the season, it looked like the Phantoms may have one of the best rosters in the league, fueled by an elite RB core. But this core has faltered recently, and the Phantoms have struggled as a result.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 134.72
iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 134.18

Summary:
The trend of thrilling Monday Night finishes continued this week as the Aodgers held on to a narrow win. It was a tough start for them on Thursday as Mark Andrews and Rashod Bateman combined for 4.8 points, and Andrews left the game with an injury that may force him to miss time. Lamar Jackson was still solid despite this thanks to some highlight runs that made the difference in the win. Despite the slow start, the Aodgers flipped the momentum on Sunday. Tony Pollard was their best player, scoring 33.2 points. He is clearly an RB1 whenever Ezekiel Elliot is absent, so if Elliot misses more time, Los Angeles will have a strong RB trio. Leonard Fournette and Kenneth Walker were also decent, combining for 24. Tyler Allegier was also a great flex play, scoring a pivotal 16. The Aodgers had a scare late in the afternoon window as Cooper Kupp left the game with an ankle injury, but it appears Kupp did not suffer any serious injury to his ankle. With this, the Aodgers breathed a sigh of relief. Now, they stand at 6-2 with a strong RB group. The main question will now be when Mark Andrews will return to health, and it will be interesting to see what they do in his absence. iPump Plastic lost an absolute heartbreaker, falling short by less than a point. Ultimately, Ezekiel Elliot's absence was probably the main reason they lost, as it not only hurt them, but also helped the Aodgers benefit from Tony Pollard's breakout. Also, Joe Burrow fell back to Earth after his astounding 36-point showing last week, scoring 13 this week. This can likely be attributed to Ja'Marr Chase's absence, which if true would be tough to overcome since Chase will miss at least three more weeks. Still, Nick Chubb and Amari Cooper did all they could, combining for 43 points and making the game much closer than it appeared to be. The main key for iPump Plastic this season will be for their RBs to return to full health and usage. D'Andre Swift returned to Detroit's lineup, but he did not receive goal line work, and finished with 11. Had he been featured more prominently, iPump Plastic may have won this week. Instead, they fell just short, and now stand at 4-4.

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 213.48
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 160.76

Summary:
Auto Pilot made league history by becoming the first team to ever surpass the 200-point mark in a week. Their point totals this week were simply incredible, and they had three (!!) players surpass the 30-point mark. Their scoring leader was Alvin Kamara, who emerged from a bit of a slump to score 38.3. AJ Brown was right behind, scoring 36.6, most of which came in the first half. Had Philadelphia been in a closer game, Brown probably could have flirted with the 50-point mark. The other 30-point scorer, D'Onta Foreman, was a major positive surprise. He had just been signed off waivers by Auto Pilot, but immediately made a major impact with 31.8 points. Astoundingly, Auto Pilot's Miami stack also came close to the 30-point mark, with Tua Tagovailoa and Jaylen Waddle each scoring over 25. This was by far the most dominant performance in league history, one that has never been seen in the history of recaps. These performances are likely not one-offs either, but rather represent players finding their strides or more opportunities. After a tough loss last week, Auto Pilot may have just flipped the script on their season, and they have to be thrilled about their chances. Team Griffith suffered the second-unluckiest loss of the season, as they would have beat every other team in the league this week. Although they had their Chiefs stack on bye, they showcased their depth. With DeAndre Hopkins and Tyreek Hill, they may have the best WR duo in the league, as both combined for 53 points. Hill's performance was capped a bit by going against his QB, which is always frustrating. The most positive sign, however, is that Christian McCaffrey scored 36.26, including a passing touchdown. In San Francisco, McCaffrey may be able to return to his 2019 form, which would be scary for the league given Team Griffith also boasts a strong Kansas City stack. If there was one weakness for Team Griffith, it would be at their RB2 position. With Breece Hall out for the season, they will rely heavily on Raheem Mostert, but he disappointed this week. Next week, Christian McCaffrey is on bye, so their RBs may be in a tough spot. Despite the frustrating and unlucky loss, Team Griffith will still likely make the postseason, and will be dangerous when they get there.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 10 RECAP

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 159.34
One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 124.52

Summary:
If there is a clear championship favorite, it is likely Team Griffith. They have now scored 150+ points in consecutive weeks. Last week, despite the tough loss, they scored over 150 despite their Kansas City stack's bye week. This week, they nearly scored 160 despite Christian McCaffrey's bye week. When a team is this dominant despite missing some of their best players, they are clearly in good shape. After returning from bye, Kansas City's stack was phenomenal. Patrick Mahomes led the way with 34 points, matching his season high. Pass catchers Travis Kelce and Juju Smith-Schuster each scored around 15. Overall, Team Griffith's pass-catchers may be the best in the league, as Tyreek Hill delivered another 20+ point performance. DeAndre Hopkins was also solid with 11.6. Heading into the week, the team appeared to have RB issues without Christian McCaffrey, but Kenyan Drake was the surprise of the week, scoring a remarkable 23.9. Ultimately, Team Griffith does not have many flaws, and should be in great shape for a postseason run. One Man Revolution saw their three-game winning streak snapped. Their RB core was great again this week for the most part, with Austin Ekeler, Travis Etienne, and Rhamondre Stevenson each performing well. However, Aaron Jones continued his inconsistent performance this season, scoring just 5.5. He also suffered an ankle injury that caused him to leave the game early, and it is unclear how much this will affect him going forward. The team's WR core leaves a lot to be desired, as starters Mike Evans and Gabriel Davis combined for just 10 points, which is simply not good enough for WRs. Both of them are boom-or-bust, so the team will probably not bench the consistent Tyler Lockett anymore in the future. The team now has an interesting situation, as they signed Justin Fields prior to the week. Fields scored 42 and appears to be breaking out, but the team also has Jalen Hurts as their starter. Because of this, the team may look to send one of these players to a QB-needy team for some WR help. Despite the loss, One Man Revolution can still make a playoff push thanks to their power rankings advantage.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 118.6
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 78.6

Summary:
It has been a bit of a tough season for the Pickles, marred by inconsistency. This week, however, was much better for them. After scoring less than a point last week, Davante Adams returned to form, scoring a remarkable 31.7 points. The Raiders likely decided that they could not win without pummeling Adams with targets, and this helped the Pickles. Aside from Adams, the rest of the team was okay, without any standouts. Trevor Lawrence has been a solid fill-in for Dak Prescott, and he scored 16 this week. Ohio State rookies Garrett Wilson and Chris Olave have also been decent, and they each scored in double figures this week. DK Metcalf has also been solid, putting fears of a potential injury to rest. There were still some letdowns- mainly Kyle Pitts and the team's RBs. Pitts scored just 3 points this week and has been inconsistent at best all year, which has been a major hamper on the Pickles' success. Also, their RB duo of Devin Singletary and Clyde Edwards-Helaire have not been up to standard, and they combined for just 8 points this week. The team does have Jeff Wilson available off the bench, and his role in Miami seems promising. Even still, their RB issues do not seem to be disappating. The #4 seed will likely be 7-6 this season, so the Pickles are not out of it yet, but they will need to run the table. After starting 4-2, the Phantoms have now dropped three straight to fall under .500. This week would be particularly tough with their RB duo of Saquon Barkley and Jonathan Taylor both on bye. Replacements Darrell Henderson and AJ Dillon were poor, each scoring only 5. Also, the team sorely missed their Denver receivers this week, as only Allen Lazard scored in double figures. They have had a major weakness at TE all season, and their woes there continued this week with Evan Engram scoring just one point. While the Phantoms are not out of the race yet, they will absolutely need Saquon Barkley and Jonathan Taylor to perform how they did in Week 1, where they carried the Phantoms to a major victory. Taylor's status for next week is unknown, and he is running out of time to avoid being one of the biggest fantasy busts in recent memory. For the Phantoms to make the postseason, they desparately need Taylor to near 2021 form.

The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 111.9
iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 96.64

Summary:
Selecting Derrick Henry first overall may have been the best decision any team has made in the draft. Jonathan Taylor was considered the consensus top pick in the offseason, but Taylor has been a massive letdown in 2022. Meanwhile, Derrick Henry has been superb, and he continued that trend by scoring 23.5 this week. While Henry started off slow, he has been the most consistent back in the league since Week 3, scoring over 15 in every week since. This has masked some struggles for The Lion Experience, as other RB David Montgomery has been a disappointment this season, and he may soon be replaced by Khalil Herbert as the primary back for Chicago. Fortunately for the Lion Experience, Michael Carter appears to be in line for an increased role, and he scored 15 this week. It has been difficult at WR this year for the Lion Experience, mainly due to Keenan Allen's injury and CeeDee Lamb's inconsistency. They were on bye this week, and if they can use the rest to return to 2021 form, The Jared Goff Lion Experience may be in line for a third consecutive playoff appearance, especially since they currently occupy the fourth seed. It was an especially pivotal victory as IPump Plastic is also in contention for that spot. It was a bye week nightmare for them this week, as Ezekiel Elliot, Nick Chubb, Diontae Johnson, George Kittle, Amari Cooper, and George Pickens were each on bye, which is one of the most brutal bye weeks in league history. Their fill-ins were major let-downs, as Robert Woods, Tyler Conklin, and Devin Duvernay combined for a dreadful 2 points. Also, their RBs struggled, with D'Andre Swift and Antonio Gibson combining for only 11 points. New England's defense and Justin Jefferson did all they could for IPump Plastic to remain competitive, but their bye weeks sunk them this week. Had they been at full strength, they may have been able to win this one. Instead, they fell to 4-5, and it was a tough week to have this many players on bye.

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 102.8
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 147.9

Summary:
It was the Joe Mixon show for Teiyo Tomozawas this week, as Mixon delivered an all-time fantasy performance. By scoring 5 touchdowns, Mixon finished with an incredible 53.1 point performance. With this, Mixon almost singlehandedly carried his team to victory, and this was a great sight for Teiyo Tomozawas since they came in wanting to see more out of Mixon this season. Also, Josh Allen was as good as ever despite multiple INTs and Buffalo's loss, scoring 24.8. However, Allen suffered a UCL injury that may be a major concern for him. He is currently undergoing evaluation, and the worst case scenario would be Tommy John surgery that would possibly end his season. If this happened, Teiyo Tomozawas would need the Daniel Jones breakout to continue. While they await the Allen news, they can still be optimistic, as waiver pickup Mecole Hardman may be breaking out. He scored over 16 this week, which was desperately needed with a struggling receiving core. Michael Pittman has been the primary disappointment as he has not scored in double-digits since Week 6. At 7-2, a playoff spot is almost guaranteed, but Teiyo Tomozawas will need to find a better solution at WR for the playoffs. Auto Pilot was due for regression after setting a league record for points scored last week. Alvin Kamara and D'Onta Foreman epitomized that regression, as they each scored over 30 less points than they did last week. Tua Tagovailoa and Jaylen Waddle also regressed a bit, but they were still strong. Miami's offense has been electric in 2022, which makes these players dependable options every week. Also, AJ Brown and Miles Sanders were strong, each scoring in double figures. It was a tough matchup for Auto Pilot, but they are still in position to contend for a playoff spot. Ja'Marr Chase's injury may have made this difficult, and so they will need Alvin Kamara to be close to as good as he was in Week 8.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 125.72
Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 104

Summary:
The Los Angeles Aodgers improved to 7-2 and all but secured a playoff spot. Once again, Kenneth Walker was their backbone, as he went off for 26.4 points. Drafted in the 12th round, Walker has proven to be one of the best picks of the season. Also, Cooper Kupp has not been as good as he was in 2021, but he showed flashes this week with a 60 yard touchdown and a 22.8 point finish. Ultimately, two waiver pickups were essential in the Aodgers' win. Joshua Palmer scored 14.6, and he proved to be a smash play in Mike Williams and Keenan Allen's absences. Even more impressive was Juwan Johnson, who filled in for the injured Mark Andrews to score 11. With a 21-point win, these performances were essential. There were some major disappointments, mainly at the flex spot, as Drake London and Allen Robinson combined for a measly 5 points. With issues at flex, the Aodgers may need Tony Pollard to take over as RB1 in Dallas. Even still, they can probably turn their focus to constructing the best roster for the playoffs, as there are hardly any scenarios left where they miss out. The Cig Squad, in contrast, will likely miss the playoffs and are guaranteed to finish under .500. Their RB duo of Josh Jacobs and Dameon Pierce has the potential to be one of the best in the league, but they combined for just 23 points this week, which was not enough to win. The game got off to a solid start for them as Dallas Goedert scored 20 points, but they ultimately lost because of issues at the flex position. DJ Moore and Devonta Smith scored just 3 points each, which is just not enough to cut it. DJ Moore's performance was especially shocking as he scored 20 less points than last week. He was appearing to turn a corner with PJ Walker taking over for Baker Mayfield, but now it seems Mayfield may be the starter in Carolina again. Also, Devonta Smith has been one of the biggest letdowns in 2022 fantasy-wise. He had one strong week, but he has otherwise struggled despite Philadelphia's offensive breakout. Pair this with Najee Harris's rough season, and the team has many flaws. Cordarelle Patterson returned from injury, which may help them going forward, but they are probably out of postseason contention barring a major miracle.

Alvin Lockhart Division
Team Griffith 5-4

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 10 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 118.7
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 117.3

Summary:
After several close losses this season, One Man Revolution finally saw some luck go their way as they scraped by with a 1-point victory. Heading into the game, they needed Jalen Hurts to outscore Terry McLaurin by just about 4. In the third quarter, this was looking precarious as Washington dragged out the time of possession. Eventually, though, Jalen Hurts was able to make up the point difference despite key turnovers from his teammates. A late decision enabled this victory for One Man Revolution as they decided to start Dalton Schultz over Zach Ertz because of Kyler Murray's absence. Because of this decision, the team ultimately won, as Schultz outscored Ertz by 13. This was because of an early injury to Zach Ertz, which will very likely end his 2022 season. This is not what One Man Revolution had wanted to see, especially since Ertz had been a dependable TE1 up until that point. Schultz appears to be improving thanks to Prescott targets, and he will have to meet One Man Revolution's preseason expectations for him. The team's MVP was Aaron Jones, who scored over 20 points despite an injured ankle. Usually, Jones is overshadowed by Stevenson, Etienne, and Ekeler, but he was absolutely pivotal with Stevenson on bye and Ekeler and Etienne struggling this week. With the close win, the team controls their destiny for a playoff spot, but three of their biggest contributors will not play in Week 11, which will make it a challenge. The Detroit Phantoms lost in heartbreaking fashion, as it appeared they may have been able to end their losing streak in the second half of Monday night's game. Had Jerry Jeudy not suffered a game-ending injury early in the first quarter, the Phantoms very likely would have won this week. Also, Arizona's defense scored a defensive touchdown that was ruled dead by the officials, which cost the Phantoms six crucial points. This reflected how injuries and bad luck have worked against them this season. More positively, their RB duo of Saquon Barkley and Jonathan Taylor returned to their Week 1 selves, each scoring over 20 points. Also, Terry McLaurin clearly enjoys catching passes from Taylor Heinecke, as he scored 16 to nearly win the game for the Phantoms. Going forward, the Phantoms will need to win out to make the postseason, and they will also likely have to close a large gap in point differential to do so. Still, Barkley and Taylor returning to health could enable them to do so, but they may be too weak at WR without Jerry Jeudy.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 112.9
iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 104.58

Summary:
Teiyo Tomozawas have won many games in exhilarating fashion this season, and this week was no exception. Heading into Sunday night's game, they needed Brandon Aiyuk and San Francisco's defense to outplay George Kittle, and they did just that. Aiyuk and San-Fran's defense combined for 19 points while Kittle scored just 2, which was enough for the win. Prior to the week, there were concerns that Josh Allen would miss significant time due to a UCL injury, but Allen was able to suit up this week. He seemed quite healthy as he scored 19.6, although he has had some issues with turnovers this year. If Allen is able to keep performing at a high level, Teiyo Tomozawas will have a significant positional advantage. With last week's hero Joe Mixon out with a bye week, they needed their other RBs to step up. Dalvin Cook did so, scoring 22.1, continuing a strong trend since Week 5. Chase Edmonds, however, failed to make an impact, and it appears he is droppable despite his strong start. Luckily for Teiyo Tomozawas, their alternative flex options were solid, as Chris Godwin and Zay Jones each scored in double figures. With their 8th win, Teiyo Tomozawas are in prime position for a postseason appearance, and they can officially clinch a return with just one more win. IPump Plastic fell to a disappointing 4-6 despite an otherwordly effort from Justin Jefferson. Minnesota's elite WR did all he could to lead his team to the win with 30 points and an incredible catch, but it ultimately was not enough. Heading into the season, it appeared the team may have the strongest RB core in the league as they boasted a group of D'Andre Swift, Nick Chubb, and Ezekiel Elliot. However, Swift has dealt with injuries and limited touches, and Ezekiel Elliot missed this week's game with an injury. Nick Chubb has been by far the best out of these three, but his effectiveness was limited due to a poor gamescript. If the defending champion is to return to the postseason, they will likely need this core to be as strong as it was in the beginning of the season, which requires Elliot to return to health and Swift to receive more touches. Time well tell if this will occur for them.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 118.06
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 88.4

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles kept their postseason hopes alive with an upset victory over the Aodgers. Once again, Davante Adams was their leading scorer with 23 points despite the Raiders' loss. In the last two weeks, Adams has clearly proven that his 0.7 point clunker was an anomaly and that he is a top-5 fantasy option. Their most pleasant surprise, though, was Jeff Wilson, who it appears has taken over Miami's backfield. Wilson looked electric in Miami's win by scoring 21.3. Devin Singletary has been hit-or-miss this year, but he was a hit this week thanks to 15 points in Buffalo's thrilling victory. Also, Trevor Lawrence has been making developmental strides, and he also scored over 20 despite Jacksonville's loss to Kansas City. These performances were more than enough to win the game for the Pickles, although matchup luck helped. There were some disappointments, mainly Chris Olave, Kyle Pitts, and Deebo Samuel. Out of the three, there is probably the least cause for concern with Chris Olave, as he has been mostly dependable. Deebo Samuel, in contrast, has mostly failed to recapture his 2021 magic thanks to more limited usage, and Kyle Pitts has still been one of the biggest busts of the fantasy season. If these three could perform up to expectations, the Pickles would be a much more electric team, and they will need them to do so if they want to get to 7-6 and have a chance at the postseason. Still, they face a signficant power ranking obstacle, which complicates any potential run. It was a tough week for the Aodgers, especially since the Baltimore Ravens were on bye. Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews' replacements- Jimmy Garoppolo and Taysom Hill were subpar. Hill was especially poor as he scored just a tenth of a point. But the most upsetting part of the team's loss was Cooper Kupp's injury. Kupp had been injured prior to this game, but the injury he suffered this week was especially serious. Kupp was placed on IR, which will keep him out for the remainder of the fantasy regular season. This is a tough blow to the Aodgers, who are now struggling at WR. They will have Mike Williams back in the lineup next week, which will help with this. Next week will be tough, though, as both Leonard Fournette and Kenneth Walker will be on bye. They can turn to Tony Pollard to replace one of them, and they may have to hope Damien Harris can score a touchdown against the Jets. Essentially, the question for the Aodgers will be whether they can adequately replace Kupp's production.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 130.04
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 107.64

Summary:
Team Griffith once again was the weekly scoring leader, and they appear to be the hands-on favorite as the postseason quickly approaches. Once again, their Kansas City stack was excellent, with Mahomes and Kelce combining for almost 50. Juju Smith-Schuster started off well, but he took a rough hit and left the game with a concussion. He should return next week, and if he can continue his recent production, he is probably a WR1 going forward. Aside from their KC stack, Team Griffith also boasts one of the best receiving cores in the league with Tyreek Hill and DeAndre Hopkins. They were each solid this week, although Hill scored his least amount of points since Week 7 due to Miami's reliance on the run game. Christian McCaffrey scored 15, but he appears to now be in a concerning time share with Elijah Mitchell. With both of these players on the roster, though, Team Griffith can use both of them in their starting lineup, which would potentially fix their issues at RB2. Overall, Team Griffith has been dominant in recent weeks, and they are the most difficult team to beat in the league right now. The Jared Goff Lion Experience fell to 5-5, although they played Team Griffith close. Generally, their team goes as Derrick Henry does. This week, Henry was pedestrian, only scoring 7.7 against a tough Denver defense. With Henry scoring just 7, it would be tough for his teammates to make up for this. David Montgomery was poor, scoring only 4, but he may see more touches as Chicago placed Khalil Herbert on injured reserve. Even still, Justin Fields has been Chicago's primary rusher, which caps Montgomery's volume. The Lion Experience can be much more optimistic about their receiving core. CeeDee Lamb scored a remarkable 32.5 points, and he has clearly been aided by Dak Prescott's return. Also, Amon-Ra St. Brown scored 17 despite the lack of a touchdown, which shows he received many targets. Keenan Allen should return to the lineup next week, which would give The Lion Experience a strong receiving core of Allen, Lamb, and St. Brown. With this, they could make a return to the postseason.

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 105.3
Worst Team of All Time (Queso James) 88.7

Summary:
Auto Pilot won a crucial fifth game this week, despite struggles from Philadelphia's offense. Generally, Miles Sanders and AJ Brown are key contributors, but they combined for just 6 points this week. Also, Alvin Kamara is one of Auto Pilot's most impactful players, as showcased in their 200+ point effort. This week, though, Kamara was mediocre, scoring just 6. If the Saints' offense continues to struggle, Kamara's upside will be limited, so Auto Pilot will hope New Orleans can fix these struggles. Jaylen Waddle was also below average, scoring just 8, and breakout TE Greg Dulchich had a game to forget. Auto Pilot was anchored mainly by their flex RBs. James Conner and D'Onta Foreman combined for just about 20 points each, which was essential to their team's win. The Cardinals surprisingly released Eno Benjamin following the week, which indicates they are confident in Conner as their top back. D'Onta Foreman has been a key waiver pickup, as like Kamara he scored over 30 in Auto Pilot's record-setting Week 8 win. It is a good sign for Auto Pilot to be winning games in Ja'Marr Chase's absence, and a major looming question will be whether Chase can return before the end of the fantasy regular season. If he can, Auto Pilot will have a chance to make the playoffs. Worst Team of All Time recently changed their name to reflect their frustration with this year's team. This week, they could have won had they started a different QB, but Kyler Murray was ruled out before the team could make a switch. They needed just 18 from their QB, so they could have found a way to win. Their RB duo of Josh Jacobs and Dameon Pierce has been dependable all year, and they combined for 30 points this week. Stefon Diggs has always been dependable as well, and he scored 18.8. Aside from these players, though, it has been a struggle for them. Najee Harris has been one of the biggest fantasy busts of the season, and he scored just 9.9 this week. He is also losing touches to Jaylen Warren, which was unthinkable prior to the season. DJ Moore showed flashes of a return to WR1 form in Week 8, but he has struggled since. He scored just 4.9 this week, far below what he is capable of. Lastly, Cordarelle Patterson disappointed following a nice performance in Week 9. Arthur Smith has to be one of the most frustrating coaches in fantasy football as most of his players are inconsistent. At 2-8, Worst Team of All Time will not be making the postseason, and they will look to 2023 to make their return.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 11 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 117.42
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 139.26

Summary:
Heading into the week, the Los Angeles Aodgers had been struggling a bit, having scored just 88 last week. But this week, they returned to early-season form with a 139-point showing. Tony Pollard was the star of the week, scoring a remarkable 33.9. This was despite Ezekiel Elliot's return, which caused many to lower Pollard in their rankings. Elliot even took two touchdowns away from Pollard, so had he missed, Pollard could have neared the 45-50 point mark. Even still, Pollard showed he can still be valuable even with Elliot in the lineup, which will be significant for the Aodgers' RB situation. Also, special teams were key in the win as Tyler Bass and Washington's defense combined for a pivotal 44 points. An average day from either may have made this one much closer, but they were key in locking up the win early. The Aodgers could have been even more dominant, but Mike Williams left Sunday night's game early with an injury. Josh Palmer, his replacement, scored 26 off the bench, so if Williams misses some more time, Los Angeles will potentially still have a solid option available. Right now, their biggest concern is their Baltimore Ravens stack. Lamar Jackson and Mark Andrews got off to an excellent start, but they have cooled since. This week, they combined for just 24, and Los Angeles could certainly use more from them. Even still, the Aodgers locked up a playoff spot with this win, and now will look to the race for the top spot. It was a tough defeat for One Man Revolution, who now find themselves in a do-or-die situation for the rest of the season. Heading into this week, they made a major trade, sending Jalen Hurts and Brandin Cooks to the Atomic Pickles in exchange for Chris Olave and Trevor Lawrence. This week, Olave was strong, scoring 18.7. But this trade may prove to be short-sighted, as a major premise One Man Revolution relied upon was that Justin Fields would be a QB1 going forward. In Sunday's game against Atlanta, however, Fields suffered multiple injuries, and his status for next week's game is uncertain. If Fields were to miss time, One Man Revolution will have given away a positional advantage. They will wait anxiously for Fields' status going forward. Aside from this, their performance was quite mediocre. In wins, their strength at RB tends to carry them, but this week their RBs were nothing special. Aaron Jones and Rhamondre Stevenson scored just 11, and Austin Ekeler was okay with 17. But their WRs have cost them wins all season, and this week Darnell Mooney and Gabe Davis scored just 10 each. Overall, then, they may have been justified in attempting to improve at WR, but they may have traded the wrong QB in doing so. If they miss the playoffs because of it, it will be a long nine months for them.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 138.66
iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 159.7

Summary:
iPump Plastic came into the week needing a victory to keep their season alive, and they needed to beat the league's top scoring team to do so. They would need everyone to step up, and that is essentially what occured. From the get-go, it seemed to be a great week for them, as Amari Cooper was excellent early. Cooper seemed to be everywhere in the stat sheet, and he finished with 27 points. Jamaal Williams was also strong, finishing with 24.4 points. Surprisingly, Williams leads the league in rushing touchdowns thanks to dependable goal-line work, and rostering him has partially offset D'Andre Swift's struggles for the defending champion. Swift got off to a hot start, but injuries and workload reduction have led to a disappointing 2022 for him. These struggles did not cost his team the win, though, as Joe Burrow and George Kittle stepped up. George Kittle was especially important since he has been poor at times this season. This was not the case this week, as Kittle finished with 22. IPump Plastic could have scored even more, but Justin Jefferson and Nick Chubb were underwhelming. Both have been a bit inconsistent this season, but they clearly have the upside to carry iPump Plastic to high scoring totals. IPump Plastic will need to win out to return to the postseason, but this week showed it was quite possible. Team Griffith, while arguably the league's best team this season, is also the unluckiest. This week, they would have beaten all but two teams in the league, but they instead fell to an unlucky 6-5. Their Mahomes-Kelce stack has carried them all season, and they nearly hit the 60 point mark this week. This put them in reach of a Monday night victory, but Christian McCaffrey and DeAndre Hopkins were unable to outpace George Kittle. There are some concerns with McCaffrey at the moment as the 49ers appear to be balancing his workload, which may cap his fantasy upside. At the same time, though, it may keep him available. There are some major concerns at RB aside from McCaffrey at the moment as Raheem Mostert is the team's best RB2, but he was on bye this week. Kenyan Drake and Jerick McKinnon combined for just 6, a far cry from last week for Drake. Team Griffith will have to hope Mostert gets more touches, or they will have serious issues at RB2. Even still, it will be tough to outscore this team in a 2-week matchup, and they will almost certainly be in the postseason.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 107.68
Worst Team of All Time (Queso James) 114.72

Summary:
Worst Team of All Time pulled off a major upset to snap a 6-game winning streak. Najee Harris has been one of 2022's biggest let-downs, but he showed flashes of his 2021 season with a 25.6-point performance. It was a "what could have been" moment, as Harris showed that he still may have RB1 potential, albeit too late to make an impact. Another surprising performance came from Jimmy Garoppolo, who scored 25.42 points, more than Josh Allen, Jalen Hurts, and Justin Fields scored this week. These two were the standouts, but the team also received solid outings from Josh Jacobs, Stefon Diggs, and Cordarelle Patterson. Most impressively, Worst Team of All Time was able to win despite losing 8 points from Minnesota's defense, so they could have gotten close to the 125-130 mark. Although they are already eliminated, upsetting the league's top seed has to be a good feeling, and Worst Team of All Time will want to continue to play spoiler down the stretch. For Teiyo Tomozawas, it was a head-scratcher. Generally, Josh Allen powers them to wins, but he is clearly not 100%. Allen struggled to make throws and finished with an underwhelming 12.58 points. Also, their RB core of Dalvin Cook and Joe Mixon is generally one of the league's best, but that was not the case this week as they each only scored 7. Mixon was especially disappointing as he had scored over 50 in his last start, so Teiyo Tomozawas will definitely hope he comes closer to this going forward. Also disappointing was James Robinson, who has massively fallen off since a hot start to the season. The team picked up Latavius Murray, who is now the RB1 in Denver, so Robinson may not be a starter for much longer. Their receiving core was okay this week, with Aiyuk and Pittman each scoring in double figures, but they needed more from them to win this week. Teiyo Tomozawas will make the postseason, but they will need stronger performances to find postseason success.

The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 110.26
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 82.48

Summary:
The Jared Goff Lion Experience now control their own destiny for a postseason spot after sweeping the season series against the Phantoms. Top pick Derrick Henry once again justified his draft spot as he scored 24.36, including a passing TD. David Montgomery was also much better than he has been recently, as he scored in double figures for the first time since Week 7. With Khalil Herbert now out, Montgomery is now the clear RB1 in Chicago, and the points should follow. Justin Herbert was also strong, scoring 19. Herbert has been hit-or-miss this season, but if he can score around the 20-mark weekly, he would put the Lion Experience in strong position to win. Aside from these performances, the rest of the team was a bit underwhelming, especially the receivers. CeeDee Lamb cooled down after a major game last week, scoring just 7, but this was likely due to a poor gamescript. Amon-Ra St. Brown also was average, scoring 11. Mainly, the Lion Experience's biggest issue is at flex, as Adam Thielen and Michael Carter combined for just 5 points. This will cap their upside for now, and they could really use Keenan Allen to be healthy. If Allen were to return to previous form, the Lion Experience would patch issues at flex, and could be in an even better spot for a playoff run. They have a major matchup against One Man Revolution this week that could decide the fourth playoff spot, so they will need everyone to be at their best. The Phantoms, meanwhile, will probably miss the postseason with this loss. It has been a tough October/November for them, as they have lost 7 straight since their 4-2 start. The Jonathan Taylor-Saquon Barkley duo has decided many games for them this year, and this time they cost the Phantoms a chance at a win. They combined for just under 20 points, which was not enough to make the game close. Had they combined for around 50 like last week, the Phantoms could have won a major victory. The team was also weak at wide receiver, as Terry McLaurin and Allen Lazard each scored in single digits. WR has cost the team in a big way this year, as no one has really stepped up as a dependable WR1 option. Now, the Phantoms will look to 2023 after a brutal 5-week stretch eliminated them from contention.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 132.3
Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 80.44

Summary:
Heading into the week, the Atomic Pickles made a major trade, sending Chris Olave and Trevor Lawrence to One Man Revolution in exchange for Jalen Hurts and Brandin Cooks. This move may have inspired the team as they came through with their best performance of the season. Hurts scored 24.2 in his debut, and Davante Adams continued his three-week tear by nearly hitting the 30-point mark. It seems unfathomable that Adams scored less than a point in a week, but he was clearly motivated by that performance to turn his season around. Deebo Samuel was also the best he has been as of late with almost 20 points. He scored a rushing touchdown, which shows how important rushing is to his game. Devin Singletary has also been a major contributor at the RB position for the Pickles over the past few weeks, and he scored over 16 this week. Singletary and Jeff Wilson may prove to be a solid RB duo, which has eluded the Pickles so far. Unfortunately for them, Kyle Pitts suffered an injury that may end his season, which caps a major letdown of a season for him. The Pickles do not have a reliable option at TE, so they will have to turn to the waiver wire or consider another trade. At 5-6, the Pickles are still alive for a playoff spot, but they will have to work against a disadvantage in the power rankings to do so. For Auto Pilot, it was a tough loss, and the momentum from their 200-point historic performance may be running low. They were already in a tough spot heading in with their Miami stack on bye, and the replacements could not fill the void. Also, Philadelphia's offense hurt them significantly, as Miles Sanders and A.J. Brown combined for just over 10 points. Also, D'Onta Foreman has only performed well against Atlanta this season, as he is averaging 30 points against them compared to single digits against all other teams. No player was able to surpass the 15-point mark, which is always tough to work with, especially when many players scored in single figures. Auto Pilot is still alive in the playoff hunt, but the loss means they will need to rely on several results to go their way.

Standings:
Alvin Lockhart Division
Team Griffith 6-5
The Jared Goff Lion Experience 5-6

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 12 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 137.66
The Jared Goff Lion Experience (Dishnet34) 131.66

Summary:
It was a do-or-die scenario for One Man Revolution, who would have been eliminated with a loss. Fortunately for them, they were able to pull off a narrow victory. On Thanksgiving, it became clear this would be a slugfest, as each team received excellent performances. For One Man Revolution, it was Dalton Schultz and Rhamondre Stevenson who came through the most, as both scored over 15. However, Gabe Davis has been ice cold as of late, and he was quite poor this week with only 5.8 points. Heading into Sunday, One Man Revolution was quite negative about their chances, mainly because of Justin Fields' injury and the trade that sent Jalen Hurts to the Atomic Pickles. But Trevor Lawrence stepped up in a major way, scoring 24 despite a tough matchup against Baltimore. In the same game, though, the team lost Travis Etienne early to injury, so Etienne failed to score any points. With this, the team thought they were done. But a key decision to stream Miami's defense against Houston paid dividends, as Miami scored 24 critical points. Also, the team's RB core was at its best, as Austin Ekeler and Aaron Jones neared the 20-point mark. Ultimately, the team just scraped by with the win despite Etienne's injury and terrible performances from their WRs. Now, they face another do-do-die scenario against the defending champion in the season's final week. For the Jared Goff Lion Experience, it was not technically a do-or-die game, but their playoff odds are now much lower because of their defeat. They suffered from some poor matchup luck, as they received many solid performances, especially on Thanksgiving. Amon-Ra St. Brown, CeeDee Lamb, and T.J. Hockenson combined for over 50 points, which gave them a seemingly strong cushion heading into the weekend. Their biggest regret, though, was starting Michael Carter over Adam Thielen. Carter scored 4 points and left the game against Chicago with an injury, and was thus outscored by Thielen by 12. Had Thielen started, the Jared Goff Lion Experience would have won this one. Justin Herbert did all he could to power them to a win, scoring 28, but a good amount of those points also went to Austin Ekeler, which minimized Herbert's impact. Lastly, Derrick Henry fumbled away a key touchdown, which had he scored, would have been a game-winner. Overall, then, this was a heartbreaking loss for the Lion Experience, who will now need a win and a Team Griffith loss to continue their postseason streak.

Worst Team of All Time (Queso James) 136.08
Team Griffith (Jag123jg) 100.3

Summary:
After starting 2-8, Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad renamed themselves "Worst Team of All Time." This may have been an attempt to reverse-jinx, and if so, it has been quite successful. This week, they were the third-highest scoring team, mostly due to Josh Jacobs' 45-point explosion. They were not happy with their RB core in the offseason, but if Najee Harris had perfomed up to expectations, they could have had one of the league's best RB cores. Najee Harris had shown some improvement in recent weeks, but he suffered an injury that caused him to miss the second half. This capped Worst Team of All Time's scoring upside, which could have been much higher. Also, Dameon Pierce has struggled in recent weeks after a strong start, mainly due to horrific gamescripts. Still, Worst Team of All Time was able to win comfortably thanks to strong WR play. Stefon Diggs and DJ Moore were each strong, scoring close to 20. Also, Tee Higgins played well, but he did not start this week. While Worst Team of All Time cannot make the postseason, they made the postseason picture far more interesting, as Team Griffith could now potentially miss the postseason despite their top spot in the power rankings. Team Griffith have had horrific matchup luck in recent weeks, and this continued, although they were the lowest scoring team this week. They are heavily invested in their Kansas City Chiefs stack, so their performance is tied to Kansas City's offense and gamescript. This week, Mahomes and Kelce combined for just 31, which is usually not enough for Team Griffith. This is especially the case when Christian McCaffrey struggles. McCaffrey scored just 6.9 this week and suffered an injury, which may cause him to miss Week 13. This would be especially bad news since Elijah Mitchell suffered a season-ending injury. If McCaffrey misses, then, Team Griffith will have a major issue at RB, which will be compounded by DeAndre Hopkins' Week 13 bye. To make the postseason, then, Team Griffith may need a strong offensive output from Kansas City, but this seems quite likely with a Chiefs-Bengals matchup on the way. Still, Team Griffith will be nervously anticipating their matchup with the Detroit Phantoms.

Auto Pilot (PhilliesFan134) 111.86
Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 110.06

Summary:
Auto Pilot kept their season alive with a nervewracking win. Heading into Monday Night's game, the team needed Indy's defense to score about 2 points, but they toed the line all night. There was a point where the Aodgers came within a point, but Indy came up with a late sack to push Auto Pilot over the line. The most valuable player in the victory was Miles Sanders, who scored 29.5 points. This was especially impressive since Jalen Hurts took many rushing attempts away from Sanders, but touchdown regression has been a positive for Sanders in 2022. Also, James Conner has been strong since returning from injury, and he continued this trend by scoring just about 20 this week. These performances at RB made up for Alvin Kamara's lackluster 4-point showing. Kamara has been mediocre since scoring almost 40 in Week 8, and he has ultimately been a fantasy disappointment this year, but he can make up for that if he is able to somehow carry Auto Pilot into an unlikely playoff appearance. In especially positive news for Auto Pilot, Ja'Marr Chase will be returning against Kansas City in Week 13, which is a matchup he has historically dominated. To make the postseason, Auto Pilot will need to defeat the Jared Goff Lion Experience, and would then need the Detroit Phantoms to defeat Team Griffith. The Los Angeles Aodgers saw their chances to win their division and the top overall seed decrease with the loss. Allen Robinson was injured early in the matchup, and so he finished with 0 points, which killed the Aodgers' chances of winning. But their odds were further hampered by Tony Pollard's poor showing. Pollard scored just 7 after his outburst in Week 11. Dallas seems to be rotating between strong Elliot performances and strong Pollard performances, which may make Pollard an inconsistent option. In more positive news, Brian Robinson scored 19.5 points for the Commanders, and if he proves to be a consistent option, the Aodgers can patch their issues at flex. Also, Lamar Jackson has been better as of late, and he hit the 20-point mark for the first time since week 8. Early in the season, Lamar Jackson appeared to be on pace for a record-setting season, with the Aodgers directly benefitting, but he has since cooled. If Jackson can pick up his play, the Aodgers will be in a strong spot for the postseason.

iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 120.34
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 113.82

Summary:
The defending champion kept their playoff hopes alive with a narrow victory over the Phantoms. Many of their players were active on Thanksgiving, to mixed results. Justin Jefferson bounced back from a 4-point anomaly in a nice way, scoring twenty more points this week. But aside from Jefferson, the rest of the Thanksgiving players struggled. Jamaal Williams and D'Andre Swift made only a minor impact, combining for 18 points, and New England's defense scored just a point against Minnesota's offense that was humiliated against Dallas in Week 11. Because of these mixed results, iPump Plastic needed some solid performances, and they received them. Nick Chubb scored his highest point total since Week 8, capping it off with a game-winning touchdown in overtime. His teammate Amari Cooper was also strong, scoring 12.9. Each of these players should receive a boost with Deshaun Watson returning to Cleveland's lineup next week, and they have a favorable matchup against Houston for iPump Plastic's must-win game. The team's depth pieces also looked solid, with Ezekiel Elliot scoring 16. Elliot may be a better option than D'Andre Swift at this point, and the defending champion will be starting him in Week 13. This upcoming week, they will hope to keep their title defense alive by defeating One Man Revolution. If they do so, they will return to the postseason. If not, they will be eliminated. The Detroit Phantoms' nightmare season continued with their sixth straight loss, but they nearly played spoiler this week. It was looking like they could upset iPump Plastic and eliminate them from playoff contention, as the Colts had the ball at Pittsburgh's 1. But Jonathan Taylor botched a handoff (Matt Ryan was credited with the fumble) and was prevented from scoring a key touchdown. The Phantoms were put in position to win by Rachaad White, who scored 15 points and is appearing to take over Tampa's backfield. However, their top two receivers, who have been hit-or-miss this year, failed to make an impact. Terry McLaurin and Allen Lazard combined for just ten points, which was not enough to lead the Phantoms to the spoiling win. This has been the main theme of 2022 for the Phantoms, who have been hurt by poor WR play throughout the year, despite boasting a relatively strong RB core of Jonathan Taylor and Saquon Barkley. In Week 13, though, the Phantoms will receive one final chance to play spoiler if they can eliminate Team Griffith.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 138.42
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 114.62

Summary:
Teiyo Tomozawas appear to be in prime shape for the postseason, and they will have the chance to clinch the top seed with a win in Week 13. Josh Allen once again led the way for them this week, scoring just under 30 points. Allen has struggled a bit since injuring his elbow, but this week he returned to early season form. Also, Samaje Perine was a strong streaming play, scoring 17.6 and filling in quite nicely for the injured Joe Mixon. Arguably the most positive sign is WR Chris Godwin, who scored 23 points. Godwin appears to be Tom Brady's favorite target at this point, and if he can remain at full health, he can be a WR1. Another positive sign is Michael Pittman's return to form with Matt Ryan starting at QB. Pittman has scored in double figures in each of the last two weeks and appears to be trending in the right direction. Even depth piece WR Zay Jones could be in for a breakout fantasy playoffs, as he scored 22 points in Jacksonville's win over Baltimore. Strong WR play has eluded many teams this season, and so if Teiyo Tomozawas' receivers can continue to perform well, they may have a major advantage at a key position. In Week 13, they can clinch a division crown by defeating the Los Angeles Aodgers. The Atomic Pickles saw their season end despite a nice run towards the end of the season. New acquisition Jalen Hurts did all he could to save the season, scoring 29.82 points in an electric performance. Garrett Wilson also broke out this week with Mike White at QB, scoring 23. But ultimately, the core pieces were let-downs, which cost the Pickles a chance at a win. Davante Adams scored just 10 points, which is disappointing after a multi-week tear. Deebo Samuel also only scored 5. Samuel has been a major letdown this season despite a fantastic season in 2021, which may be due to a decrease in rushing volume. But the main reason the Pickles will miss the playoffs comes down to poor play at RB. This continued this week with Devin Singletary and Jeff Wilson combining for just under 20. This year, WRs have been mostly inconsistent, so teams that loaded up at RB have been rewarded most. Now, the Pickles' attention will turn to 2023, but they can be proud of a solid late-season run.

So far your Game 1 and 2 predictions have been the opposite of right, so I'm gonna predict the Indians have a 3-1 lead after Game 4.
