Another draft is in the books! We are entering the 9th year of forum fantasy, and the 8th 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
2022: Team Griffith

Team Storylines:

Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34):
The league's commissioner missed the playoffs by a fraction last season and is hoping to make a return in 2023. They selected Ja'Marr Chase with their first pick, and paired him with Joe Burrow. Josh Jacobs will also be a key piece, and they will hope Jacobs repeats his strong 2022 season.

Team Griffith (jag123jg):
The defending champion looks to become the first ever repeat winner this season, and their receiving duo of Justin Jefferson and Cooper Kupp (if healthy) give them a strong chance to do so. Health may be a question for them, as Breece Hall, Cooper Kupp, and Mike Evans are all dealing with some kind of injury, but the upside is there for each of them.

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24):
One Man Revolution overcame a dreadful 1-4 start to make the postseason last year but fell short in the semifinals. They are looking to get off to a better start this season, as they have not won more than 1 game in their first four weeks since 2017. They selected Christian McCaffrey first overall, and paired him with Jahmyr Gibbs and Chris Olave. QB and TE may be weak points in this roster, however, unless Dak Prescott can return to his 2021 form.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115):
The Detroit Phantoms should have been a much better team last year, but injuries and poor performances (mainly from Jonathan Taylor) sunk them. This year, they arguably have the strongest roster in the league, as they boast a strong RB group (Saquon Barkley and Tony Pollard) and excellent pass catchers. QB is a weak spot for them, but Geno Smith was strong for them at points in 2022, and he can easily repeat that this year.

iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic):
The 2021 champion missed the playoffs on the final day last year and is looking to return this year. Their wide receiving core is arguably the strongest in the league, as Tyreek Hill, AJ Brown, and Amari Cooper are an incredible big 3. Miles Sanders and JK Dobbins are the X-factors for them, as if they hit, their roster will be among the strongest in the league. If these RBs struggle, though, the position may turn out to be a major weakness.

North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP):
The North Pole Narwhals joined the league with the 2023 expansion to 12 teams. Derrick Henry is the team's X-factor. In 2019 and 2020, Henry won his teams the fantasy championship, and he was on pace to do the same in 2021 until his foot injury. Many continue to doubt Henry because of his workload, but he usually silences them. Aside from Henry, the Narwhals have a strong receiving duo in Davante Adams and Jaylen Waddle, but their flex position may need some improvement.

Mahomes on the Range (Lancer):
Mahomes on the Range was also an expansion team. Their namesake, Patrick Mahomes, propelled Team Griffith to the title in 2022, and Mahomes on the Range will hope he can do so again this year. Like many other teams, they have a solid WR duo in Garrett Wilson and Keenan Allen, although they can use some improvement at the flex position.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP):
The Atomic Pickles, a mainstay in the league, are looking to return to the playoffs for the first time in a while. They selected Travis Kelce in the first round, and Kelce usually carries teams to December football. CeeDee Lamb and Tee Higgins are also great complements to Kelce. The running backs will determine the Pickles' season, especially Rachaad White, who carries strong upside.

Quattrocentro Desperados (BaseballTeen):
It was an interesting draft for the Desperados, who selected San Francisco's defense in the third round, and auto-drafted most of the way. Austin Ekeler is always a great option in fantasy, and he should be in line for another strong season. Ultimately, their season may be tied to how well the 49ers perform.

Calvin n the Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134):
After auto-drafting last year (they still became the first team to ever score over 200 points in a single week), Calvin n the Chipmunks manually drafted one of the best rosters in the league. There is a lot to like upside-wise with this team, mainly Justin Fields, Bijan Robinson, Amon-Ra St. Brown, Calvin Ridley, and Darren Waller. As long as these players stay healthy and productive, Calvin n the Chipmunks should be in line for a playoff appearance.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ):
Teiyo Tomozawas joined the league in 2021, and have made the playoffs in each of their first two seasons. Last year, they fell short of a title under unusual circumstances, and so they are hoping third time is a charm this year. Stefon Diggs will be their anchor this year, as he has been one of the most consistent fantasy performers since being traded to Buffalo in 2020. Lamar Jackson will also be interesting to watch, as his contract situation has been resolved. Jackson will need to remain healthy, as he has missed the end of each of the last two seasons with injuries. Najee Harris will also be a key piece, as Harris regressed in 2022 after a strong rookie season.

Wesley All Stars (Wesley):
The Wesley All Stars will make their league debut in 2023 and are anchored by Nick Chubb, who should be in line for a career year now that Kareem Hunt is no longer in Cleveland. Justin Herbert should also be poised for a bounceback season after being hindered by injury throughout 2022. Flex and depth could prove to be an issue for them, but that is the case for many of the teams in the league.

Best of luck in 2023! Excited for my seventh season of writing recaps!

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 1 RECAP:

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 112.98
One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 82.52

Summary:
The Phantoms won the opening game for the second consecutive season in convincing fashion. Heading into the week, their running-back core was their most imposing unit. Tony Pollard lived up to this billing, scoring 21.2. Saquon Barkley was more pedestrian, but a negative gamescript prevented him from truly getting going. The Phantoms will need the Giants to improve offensively so that Barkley can receive more opportunities. DeVonta Smith will have high expectations as the team's WR1, and he lived up to them this week. He only scored 14, but other Philly receivers were much weaker, so Smith should improve as Philly's pass game improves. The Phantoms were negatively affected by a key injury to Dionate Johnson, but Jordan Addison appears to already be a WR2 option for them, so Diontae's injury is far less concerning. Right before gameday, the team learned Mark Andrews would be out with an injury, and so they quickly replaced him with Luke Musgrave. This was a smart move, and Musgrave would have caught a major touchdown but lost his footing. The Phantoms can be proud of their 1-0 start, and they could have won even more convincingly without some key injuries. For One Man Revolution, it was another ugly start to a season. The only two bright spots were Christian McCaffrey, who scored 24.4 points with elite usage, and Chris Olave, who scored 15.2 points. Other than these two, though, it was a mess. DJ Moore, David Njoku, Dameon Pierce, and Drake London all combined for less than the team's kicker, which is completely embarrassing. It was also a bad start from the beginning, as Jahmyr Gibbs scored just 7 points and was on the field for 27% of his team's snaps. There are plenty of reasons for concern already for this roster, and the talent may not be there to overcome a rough start like they did last season.

Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 86.88
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 80.84

Summary:
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value won in one of the wildest opening games in league history. Prior to Sunday night, things looked quite dire for them, as their QB-WR stack of Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase combined for just 9 points. Also, Skyy Moore was poor on Thursday, scoring less than a point. Their runningbacks also struggled, with Kenneth Walker and Josh Jacobs combining for just 16. Then, Sunday Night Football happened. Dallas' defense scored a remarkable 38 points, singlehandedly carrying Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value to an unexpected win. Special teams are often an overlooked part of fantasy football, but they proved to be important this week in Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value's win. Still, they will need their skill players to be much better, and will be counting on a resurgence from Joe Burrow. It was the opposite story on special teams for Team Griffith, as their defense and kicker combined for -3 points. Had they combined for 7, which would have been poor, Team Griffith would have won. The decision to start Jerick McKinnon over Breece Hall, however, was what cost Team Griffith the win, as they scored 16 fewer points. It was also a disastrous performance from Josh Allen, who should have been able to carry his team to the win with a normal outing, but he was a turnover machine. On a positive note, Justin Jefferson looked as good as ever, and he should be a dependable star WR1. But, Cooper Kupp's injury situation looks bleak at the moment, so Team Griffith will need him to return in order to have their best possible roster. It was a rough loss, but regular performances from their stars would have given them the win.

iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 122
North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 101.14

Summary:
iPump Plastic won their season opener thanks to the Tyreek Hill show. Hill looked absolutely electric, delivering 39 points in another signature fantasy outing. They made a risky move on defense, opting to start the Jets' defense against Buffalo. However, this paid off as the Jets scored 22 points, including a signature walkoff punt return TD. Aside from these performances, there were some concerns, mainly JK Dobbins' season-ending injury. With Dobbins out for the year, iPump Plastic will need to find a dependable RB2. Their best option at the moment is Samaje Perine, so they may need to look to the trade market or waiver wire. Also, flex and TE appear to be issues for them, but poor QB play overall this week may be obscuring players' true value. Even still, it was a strong Week 1 victory for the 2021 champion. The North Pole Narwhals lost their league debut, and it was an overall medicore performance. Trevor Lawrence was the team's star, as he looked like one of the best QBs in the league. The Narwhals can possibly be dealing from a position of strength, as they also had Tua Tagovailoa on the bench, and he scored 27 points. In a bad week for QBs, too many QBS may be a good problem to have. Derrick Henry also looked solid, but Tennessee appeared to have been limiting his workload, giving many touches to Tyjae Spears. This could be a concern, as Henry is getting older and has significant wear-and-tear. Another concern may be Davante Adams, who was forgettable in his debut with Jimmy Garropolo. Flex was also an issue, with Mike Williams and Odell Beckham struggling. The Narwhals may consider dealing a QB for a flex if trends hold. Still, they can easily perform better in the upcoming weeks.

Calvin n the Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134) 110.54
Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 102.82

Summary:
Calvin n the Chipmunks got off to a red hot start on Thursday night, with Amon-Ra St. Brown scoring 16 points. This hot start continued into the noon window, with namesake Calvin Ridley looking like a WR1 with 20 points. Bijan Robinson also looked amazing, scoring 17, and he could have scored even more had Tyler Allegier not vultured two goal-line TDs. With this start, it looked like Calvin n the Chipmunks could have scored 150. However, the afternoon and evening window was less kind to them. Justin Fields scored 14 points, which was respectable in comparison to many other QBs this week, but still below expectations. Rhamondre Stevenson was pedestrian on the ground, although his pass catching allowed him to still score in double digits. The biggest disappointment was probably Darren Waller, who scored 5 points, following the overall trend of poor TE play. However, there was one major bright spot on the bench- Puka Nacua. He scored 16 points, taking over as LA's #1 WR in Kupp's absence. Many sites rank him as the #1 pickup, but Calvin n the Chipmunks do not need to worry about waivers as he is already on their roster. Overall, they look like one of the strongest teams in the league despite not scoring the most points and winning by less than 10. Wesley All Stars lost their league debut in a close one. In positive news, Justin Herbert looks much better than he did last season, as he scored over 20 despite LA's heavy rushing attack. Michael Pittman also looks to be a pleasant surprise, as he may be a post-hype sleeper with Anthony Richardson. Nick Chubb also looked strong, scoring just under 15 despite an ugly offensive performance by the Browns. However, it was D'Andre Swift's poor outing that sunk Wesley All Stars. Had they started a different flex, like Darnell Mooney, they would have pulled out a surprise win. With Kenny Gainwell apparently in control of Philly's backfield, Wesley All Stars may have issues at flex. Still, there are not many other major red flags, so they should be in the mix to be a solid team if trends hold.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 83.86
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 65.96

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles improved to 1-0 in the lowest scoring game of the week. Special teams were often a key factor in teams' success this week, and this was the case for the Pickles. Atlanta's defense and Cameron Dicker combined for 26 points, which was enough to put them over the top. As for position players, Travis Etienne was the only standout, as he silenced offseason concerns with a 18.9 point showing. Aside from Etienne, no one else shined. In fact, the Pickles received two zero-point performances, including a zero-point shocker from Tee Higgins. Daniel Jones was also disastrous, scoring just 4 points. However, there were some positive signs off the bench, mainly Jakobi Meyers and Roschon Johnson. Going forward, the Pickles will need Travis Kelce to return to health, and for their receiving core to improve. If this happens, they can contend to return for a postseason berth. For last year's runner-up, it was a rough outing. Stefon Diggs was a star, scoring 21, but everyone else struggled.Their running back core was especially poor, with Joe Mixon and Najee Harris combining for 12 points. There were more concerns, as Dallas Goedert, who was generally considered to be a high-floor option, scored nothing, and Terry McLaurin scored just 4. The bench options were not much better either, as Nico Collins was the only standout. Another rough sign was Lamar Jackson's struggles, although QB play was horrific across the board in Week 1. It was a rough loss for Teiyo Tomozawas, but at least Stefon Diggs justified his draft position.

Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 148.14
Quattrocento Desperados (BaseballTeen9500) 116.76

Summary:
In a rough week for many teams, Mahomes on the Range dominated, nearly hitting the 150 mark. Brandon Aiyuk may just be this year's league winner, as he looked dominant in Week 1 with a 28.9 point showing. In addition, Aaron Jones was finally used properly by Green Bay, although he suffered an injury and had to leave the game. Still, he scored 25.7 despite this limited time. Their receiving core looked solid overall, with Zay Flowers, Keenan Allen, and Garrett Wilson impressing. However, for Garrett Wilson, things may have gotten more difficult due to Aaron Rodgers' season-ending injury early Monday night. Even still, Wilson can have value without Rodgers, but it may be capped. If James Cook can get going, Mahomes on the Range looked poised for the playoffs. For the Desperados, despite auto-drafting, they would have won if it were not for poor matchup luck. Austin Ekeler shined with 24 points, although he left the game with an injury. Deshauan Watson was also strong despite a poor passing outing, scoring 20. The team needed to make a late replacement with Christian Watson's injury, and they made a wise decision by picking up Tutu Atwell, who scored just about 15. Ultimately, the team can blame Brock Purdy for their loss, because he primarily targeted Brandon Aiyuk rather than George Kittle and Deebo Samuel. Had the roles been reversed, the Desperados may have won. Instead, they are 0-1, but they can feel okay about their start despite this.

Standings:
Alvin Lockhart Division
iPump Plastic 1-0
Detroit Phantoms 1-0
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value 1-0
North Pole Narwhals 0-1
One Man Revolution 0-1
Team Griffith 0-1

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 2 RECAP:

North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 131.36
One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 106.8

Summary:
Special teams and defenses have been a major factor around the league this season, and the Narwhals' victory evidenced that trend. On Thursday, Jake Elliot gave them a strong start, nailing a 61 yard field goal en route to an 11-point outing. Then, on Monday Night, Pittsburgh's defense dominated Cleveland, scoring a remarkable 27 points and sealing a divisional win for the Narwhals. The Narwhals' position players were also solid, with Derrick Henry and James Conner each scoring just over 15 points, and Davante Adams scoring 17. Tua Tagovailoa and Jaylen Waddle were a bit disappointing, as Tua scored 15 fewer points than he did last week, but they were still solid. Right now, the major issue for the Narwhals is at TE, as Tyler Higbee scored just two. Luckily for them, the TE landscape is as bad as it has ever been in fantasy, so they are not at a positional disadvantage. With a key divisional win, the Narwhals can be much more confident. One Man Revolution fell to 0-2 for the second straight season. Their TE and flex core has been devastatingly bad, as they each scored a pitiful 4 points this week. Additionally, their pass catchers leave much to be desired once again, with DJ Moore and Chris Olave combining for just 25. Christian McCaffrey looks dominant once again, and as long as he stays healthy, he will be a fantasy force. In more optimistic news for One Man Revolution, Kyren Williams looks to be one of the best pickups of the season already, as he scored 25 points. He will start for the team next week and should provide a significant boost. Additionally, they acquired Kirk Cousins and Christian Watson, which may improve positions of weakness. Still, they will need to win next week, or else they will start 0-3 in consecutive seasons.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 173.02
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 129.06

Summary:
Through two weeks, the Phantoms appear to be the early favorites. They delivered the best performance of the young season in a dominant effort. Their RB core was astounding, with Tony Pollard, Saquon Barkley, and Raheem Mostert all impressing. However, Saquon Barkley will miss the next three weeks with an injury, which will be a massive loss for the Phantoms, but they can also be consoled that Barkley's injury was not as bad as it first appeared. Their pass catchers, mainly Jordan Addison and DeVonta Smith, also impressed on Thursday night. Geno Smith, after a tough Week 1, bounced back with a 20+ point performance. At the moment, the Phantoms do not have any major weaknesses, although their bench depth appears thin barring a major breakout. As of now, Saquon Barkley's injury is the major storyline for them, but they can still be encouraged by their strong start. Last season, Team Griffith was the unluckiest team in the league during the regular season despite ultimately winning the title. This year, they are off to another unlucky start. They scored almost 130 yet still lost. Still, there were some good signs, mainly Mike Evans and Brian Robinson's performances. Many wrote off Evans due to his age and Baker Mayfield, but he looks better with Mayfield than he did with Brady last season. Additionally, Brian Robinson appears to have gained a starting role in Washington, which would be huge for Team Griffith. Overall, though, they appear to have an issue at RB, as Breece Hall and Alexander Mattison combined for a horrific 3 points. Their season may depend on the Cooper Kupp and Jonathan Taylor situations being resolved, as the pair can bring a much-needed jolt. At 0-2, Team Griffith will need to win quickly to avoid falling into a hole.

Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 98.48
iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 92.22

Summary:
According to their manager, Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value "keeps finding ways to win." This week, they benefitted from some matchup luck, but they will certainly take a 2-0 start. George Pickens was the strongest performer of the week with an impressive 20-point performance. Additionally, Dallas's defense has been the team's most valuable "player," and is the primary reason for their 2-0 start. In further positive news for them, Kenny Walker rebounded after a poor Week 1 to score 18. Ultimately, the team's future success may depend on the Bengals returning to form. This week, Joe Burrow and Ja'Marr Chase combined for just 20 points, which is far below their ceiling. They should be combining for 40-50 on a regular basis, which would improve their team's outlook. Like many teams, Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value has an issue at Flex, as Dalvin Cook and Zay Jones both failed to score. This is probably a larger concern than the Bengals duo, as Burrow and Chase should see some positive regression at some point. Even with these issues, they will take the 2-0 start. iPump Plastic dropped to 1-1 in disappointing fashion. Jalen Hurts, after a tough Week 1, was strong. However, since most of his points came via rushing, AJ Brown had a poor night. Tyler Lockett almost made up for this, scoring over 20 including a walkoff winner, but it was not enough. Last week, Tyreek Hill singlehandedly won the game for his team, but he was more pedestrian this time. At the moment, RB is a glaring issue for iPump Plastic, as Miles Sanders and Samaje Perine combined for under 10. Although, Jerome Ford may now be a weekly RB1 with Nick Chubb's injury. If this issue can be fixed, iPump Plastic can contend.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 116.64
Calvin n the Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134) 109.94

Summary:
This week must have been relieving for Teiyo Tomazawas, as after scoring the fewest points in Week 1, they rebounded to improve to 1-1. Lamar Jackson was the biggest sign of this improvement, scoring over 15 more than last week. Christian Kirk did the same, scoring 15 more than his 1-point Week 1 clunker. The team's bench even performed well, with three players- Gabe Davis, Nico Collins, and Josh Reynolds- scoring over 20. Any of these players may be a strong addition to the Tomozawas' lineup. At the moment, RB is their biggest weakness, mostly due to Joe Mixon's struggles. In positive news for the Tomozawas, many experts are forecasting a bounceback for Mixon going forward. If this comes to fruition, the Tomozawas will be in much better shape. Najee Harris is also a concern, as he scored just 4.8, although he did have some impressive runs. Ultimately, improving at RB will be the major storyline for the Tomozawas, but they can be happy with the win for now. Defenses have made or broken weeks this season, and for Calvin n Chipmunks, the latter occured. New York's defense appeared to be a solid streaming play, but Calvin n the Chipmunks ultimately would have been better off benching them and not playing anyone. Additionally, namesake Calvin Ridley was much worse than he was in Week 1, but this was likely a one-off. Overall, there were many positive signs for Calvin n the Chipmunks- mainly Bijan Robinson, Puka Nacua, and Rhamondre Stevenson. Bijan Robinson is the most exciting out of the three, and if he receieves a higher snap share going forward, he could compete for the RB1 overall. Ultimately, then, the outlook is quite positive for Calvin n the Chipmunks despite the tough loss.

Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 125.2
Quattrocento Desperados (Baseballteen9500) 83.7

Summary:
It was a strong win for the Wesley All Stars, although it was made much tougher Monday Night. They started off on a hot note, with D'Andre Swift recovering from a poor Week 1 to score a remarkable 25.6 points. In the same game, T.J. Hockenson scored 22. With this strong start, the Wesley All Stars were in a strong position to win. On Sunday, things went a little less according to plan, as Justin Herbert was the only standout, scoring 22.2 points. Still, this was more than enough to put them in comfortable position with Nick Chubb still to play on Monday. Then, Nick Chubb suffered a horrific, automatic season ending injury on Monday night. This puts the Wesley All Stars in a rough spot, especially since Jerome Ford is on another roster. Luckily for them, D'Andre Swift may be emerging as at least an RB2, which if true would soften the blow. Still, without Chubb, the team may struggle, and they may look to external replacement options. It was a rough week for the Desperados injury-wise, as Austin Ekeler missed the game with an injury. Also, Christian Watson did not play, but the Desperados left him in their lineup. With these injuries, the Desperados were playing from behind. Also, David Montgomery suffered a quad injury that may cause him to miss multiple weeks, so the injury bug has struck the Desperados. Deebo Samuel was the only standout performer, although it is good for the Desperados to get him going. Overall, the story for the Desperados will be Austin Ekeler's health going forward, as they lack RB depth.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 144.24
Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 120.8

Summary:
Bouncebacks were the theme of the week for the Pickles. First, Daniel Jones bounced back from a brutal first half to score over 30 in the second half, a remarkable turnaround. Also, Tee Higgins scored 25 after a shocking goose-egg in Week 1. Additionally, CeeDee Lamb and Rachaad White each doubled their point totals from Week 1, and Travis Kelce returned to the Pickles' lineup. While it was a bit of a lucky win for the Pickles in Week 1, this week's win was anything but lucky. Travis Etienne was the only major letdown, but this was mainly due to a poor gamescript. As it stands, the Pickles are one of the few undefeated teams remaining, and they could have one of the highest potentials in the league, although their bench depth could use some improvement. For Mahomes on the Range, it was an unlucky loss after a dominant Week 1 win. Keenan Allen proved many offseason doubters wrong with a 27-point outing, and Garrett Wilson was also solid despite losing Aaron Rodgers. Patrick Mahomes also bounced back after a poor Week 1 by his standards, and having Travis Kelce available should make him much more valuable. However, Brandon Aiyuk was a disappointment after his incredible Week 1 outing. Additionally, losing Aaron Jones to injury hurt the team in a major way, as they had to rely on Chuba Hubbard as their RB2. If Jones's injury is long-term, Mahomes on the Range will have a major RB issue. Even still, they are one of the better teams in the league thus far.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 3 RECAP

Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 135.3
One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 128.68

Summary:
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value improved to a stunning 3-0 in the first of two Monday Night Miracles this week. Heading into Monday's Rams-Bengals game, they needed big outings from Evan McPherson and Ja'Marr Chase, which seemed difficult thanks to Cincinnati's early struggles. However, it was a major bounceback game for Chase, who scored 20 despite scoring no touchdowns, and an all-time performance from Evan McPherson, who scored 18 crucial points to lead his real and fantasy teams to wins. Kenny Walker and Sam LaPorta put Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value in position for the win, as Walker scored a remarkable 29 points, and LaPorta emerged as a top-5 fantasy TE with an 18-point showing. The team also made a wise decision to start Brock Purdy over Joe Burrow, which granted them 12 additional points and the win. Flex remains an issue, as Kyle Pitts and Skyy Moore were poor, but the team's 3-0 start gives them cushion to experiment at flex to improve. For One Man Revolution, it was a devastating loss that felt like a season-ender. They overcame an 0-3 start to make the playoffs last season, but this team feels much worse. They got off to a strong start Thursday with 20 points from Christian McCaffrey, but the same issues sunk them once again. They may have fixed their QB play by acquiring Kirk Cousins, but TE, Flex, and WR are positions that will haunt them all year. David Njoku is borderline droppable, and Kyren Williams was a letdown after his dominant performance in Week 2. Now, One Man Revolution will need to dig themselves out of a hole yet again, and it doesn't seem likely they will do so.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 139.14
North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 140.66

Summary:
The North Pole Narwhals pulled off the second Monday Night Miracle of the week in stunning and narrow fashion. Heading into Sunday Night's game, it appeared they were buried, especially with Raheem Mostert's 40-point showing. Then, Davante Adams, a player many doubted coming into the season, scored an incredible 37. But the road for the Narwhals would still be tough, as they needed Jake Elliot to significantly outscore DeVonta Smith. Somehow, this happened, as Elliot outscored Smith by just enough to grant the Narhwals a stunning win. Tua Tagovailoa has been a key factor in the Narwhals' early success, and he recovered from a down week to score 28. Also, James Conner has been strong, scoring 18 points this week. There were some negatives for the Narwhals, mainly the season-ending injury to Mike Williams, who scored 21 this week, and Derrick Henry's poor performance. But with Jaylen Waddle soon to return to their lineup, Williams's injury is less impactful. Mainly, Henry will have to live up to his draft spot. The Narwhals can still be thrilled with their shocking win. For the Phantoms, it was a heartbreaking loss, but they are still 2-1 with the highest point total in the league. They appeared to be set for the win with Raheem Mostert's remarkable 41.7-point showing, and a breakout 23-point performance from Tank Dell. But the momentum began to flip for the Phantoms in the later games, and DeVonta Smith delivered a disaster-class to cost his team a 3-0 start. If Saquon Barkley was healthy, the Phantoms probably would have won this week, and luckily for them, Barkley appears to be close to returning. Despite the heartbreak, the Phantoms look like a legitimate playoff threat.

iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 130.88
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 108.92

Summary:
It has been the Tyreek Hill show in 2023, and iPump Plastic has benefitted in a big way from this. Hill was amazing once again, scoring 26.2. But iPump Plastic's other pass catchers were fantastic as well, with Amari Cooper and AJ Brown bouncing back from slow starts. Selecting Jerome Ford in the draft was a key move for them, as Ford looks to be a lock for RB1/2 status, which will solidify what was originally a position of weakness for iPump Plastic. While Jalen Hurts's passing has taken a step back in 2023, he still provides tremendous upside as a rusher, and he scored 20 this week. As it stands, if iPump Plastic has figured out their RB position, they will be a playoff threat. The defending champion fell to a disappointing 0-3. Their Vikings duo of Alexander Mattison and Justin Jefferson were strong, combining for 40 points, and Josh Allen was great, but the rest of the lineup left much to be desired. Breece Hall, after an incredible Week 1, has fallen back to Earth, scoring just 3 points this week. Josh Kelley has also been awful, as he scored just 2 points despite Austin Ekeler's injury granting him a larger opportunity. Dalton Kincaid has also gotten off to a rough start, but Team Griffith will have to hope his role in Buffalo's offense grows as the season progresses. Ultimately, Cooper Kupp and Jonathan Taylor remain the biggest question marks on their roster, and Team Griffith is quickly losing the time to wait for them to return to health. They will hope to bounce back against One Man Revolution in a battle of 0-3 teams next week.

Calvin n the Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134) 113.8
Quattrocento Desperados (BaseballTeen9500) 100.34

Summary:
Calvin n the Chipmunks improved to 2-1 with a solid victory. They made a few lineup changes, and most of them paid off. Primarily, CJ Stroud outscored fellow tOSU alum Justin Fields by 10 points. It is hard to believe Stroud looks better than Fields with 15+ fewer NFL starts, but here we are. The team is rumored to be looking to move on from Fields, and they have put him on the trade block. They also started Hunter Henry over Darren Waller, which was a lateral move. If Waller continues to struggle, TE could be a rough position for Calvin n the Chipmunks, but many teams can also say this. At flex, Zack Moss was a strong play, scoring over 20 points. Puka Nacua dropped off a bit after a hot start, but this was mostly due to poor pass blocking from LA's offensive line. This week, RB was a concern, with Bijan Robinson and Rhamondre Stevenson each scoring under 10. Out of the two, Stevenson is probably the most concerning, as he has struggled as a runner. Another concern is namesake Calvin Ridley, whose effort and performance was widely lamented. His team will need him to return to close to Week 1 form, and that may also depend on Trevor Lawrence. Still, a 2-1 start is nothing to be disappointed about. The Desperados fell to 0-3 in a lackluster effort. They got off to a strong start Thursday, with Deebo Samuel and George Kittle combining for just under 35 points, but this start faded. Their RB position is a nightmare with Austin Ekeler and David Montgomery injured. This week, Tyler Allgeier and Tony Jones combined for just 10 points. They will need Ekeler and Montgomery to return as soon as possible, but fortunately for them, the latter appears to be close to a return. Adam Thielen could ultimately prove to be a great pick, and if the Desperados started him over Brandin Cooks, they would hav actually won this week. But, they now stand at 0-3, and are beginning to become desperate.

Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 138.04
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 125.68

Summary:
After a great performance in Week 1, Mahomes on the Range lost in Week 2, but recovered to win again in Week 3. Keenan Allen was by far their best player, scoring over 36 points in a vintage showing. Now, with Mike Williams and Austin Ekeler unavailable, Allen may be on track for a dominant season. Additionally, namesake Patrick Mahomes dropped 25 in a blowout over Chicago, and he could have scored more had Kansas City not played it safe with an injury Mahomes suffered in the game. Luckily for Mahomes on the Range, the injury is not considered serious. Aside from these performers, the rest of the team was solid, although Chuba Hubbard and Garrett Wilson struggled. The team will need Aaron Jones to return to health to patch their issue at RB2, and will have to hope the Jets acquire a better QB to boost Wilson's value. Still, they are in good shape to contend early on, especially with Keenan Allen looking ready for an WR1 type season. Teiyo Tomoazawas fell to a disappointing 1-2 despite an otherwordly performance from Buffalo's defense, which scored an incredible 32 points. This performance masked some issues, however, with Najee Harris continuing to struggle and Josh Reynolds scoring zero points. Lamar Jackson looks to be back on track after a bad week 1, although Baltimore is dealing with some injuries. The Tomozawas cannot rely on Buffalo's defense every week, especially with them playing Miami next week, so they will need their playmakers to step up.

Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 126.4
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 71.68

Summary:
Wesley All Stars improved to 2-1 with a convincing victory. Last week, an injury to Nick Chubb was deflating, but they did not let that slow them down this week. Justin Herbert looks poised for a bounceback, QB1 type season, as he scored 29 points in a masterful display. Isiah Pacheco looked much better this week, although he was facing a weak rush defense. D'Andre Swift may be the team's best RB, as if Jalen Hurts did not take most of the goal-line work, Swift would be a near lock to score 20 every week. If there was one weakness on the Wesley All Stars, it would be at RB2/flex, but if Swift continues to perform well, he can mask this issue. The team could use a boost from its pass catchers, although DK Metcalf looked solid this week. At 2-1, Wesley All Stars are right in the mix. The Atomic Pickles had a clunker of a week, scoring barely over 70. Daniel Jones was one of the reasons this happened, as he scored almost 30 less points than he did in Week 2. Additionally, Jacksonville's defense lost them 4 points, and losing points from your defense is always back-breaking. Tee Higgins's play is the biggest concern for the Pickles, as he has been wildly inconsistent so far in the first three weeks. RB2 could also be an issue, as Javonte Williams and Rachaad White struggled this week, although the latter still has great usage. At 2-1, the Pickles will need to find some more consistency, but they are in a position where they can afford to be patient.

Standings:
Alvin Lockhart Division
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value 3-0
Detroit Phantoms 2-1
North Pole Narwhals 2-1
iPump Plastic 2-1
Team Griffith 0-3
One Man Revolution 0-3

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 5 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 145.56
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 112.4

Summary:
It was a much needed win for One Man Revolution, who will not go winless this year. It was a rough start Thursday night, as Jahmyr Gibbs once again struggled. But on Sunday, the script flipped, and One Man Revolution's runningbacks shined. Christian McCaffrey delivered the most dominant fantasy performance of 2023 with four touchdowns, good enough for an incredible 45 points. Additionally, Kyren Williams bounced back from a rough Week 3 to score 26 points. Even Dameon Pierce, who has been rough to start 2023, looked better. As Houston's offensive line becomes healthier, Pierce may become more reliable. DJ Moore struggled to start the year as well, but he scored over 20 this week. The biggest letdowns were Kirk Cousins and Chris Olave, each of whom were dreadful this week. Olave was the worst with an inexplicable 0.4 point showing, although he was underthrown on a potential 50-yard TD. With the win, One Man Revolution may have the opportunity to turn their season around. For the defending champion, it has been a tough season, and they are now 0-4. Josh Allen looked like he had the chance to will his team to the win, with another dominant performance against One Man Revolution. Justin Jefferson was also great, scoring over 23, but his output was somewhat minimized since One Man Revoution had Jefferson's QB on their roster. Aside from these two performers, it was rough for Team Griffith. Mike Evans started strong, but he left the game with an injury. If Evans misses time, Team Griffith's injury situation will be much worse. Although, Jonathan Taylor and Cooper Kupp may be returning soon, which will improve their outlook in a major way. Ultimately, if they can return, Team Griffith can fix their issues at flex, and potentially make a run, but they can essentially only lose two more games.

iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 117.06
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 108.6

Summary:
This week, it was all Eagles for iPump Plastic, as their Jalen Hurts-AJ Brown stack led them to a victory. After a slow start for both of them, they now look like a potential league-winning stack, and they combined for a remarkable 58 points this week. This was just enough to win the week for iPump Plastic, as no one else was anything to write home about. However, Dalton Schultz showed signs of improvement, scoring 11 points. If Schultz can perform better, this may fix a major point of weakness for the team. Amari Cooper was shockingly poor, scoring just 2 points, and his output may depend upon Deshaun Watson returning to health. The same may be said for Jerome Ford, who finished with 7. Overall, the team's biggest concern is at RB, but if Jalen Hurts and AJ Brown continue to perform remarkably, these worries can be offset. For the Phantoms, it was another tough Monday night loss. They trailed by just over 20, with Geno Smith yet to play. But Smith left the game with an injury at one point, and then the gamescript flipped to become more favorable for rushing. Smith finished with just 8, and the Phantoms lost their second straight. Their runningback core was a letdown after last week, especially Raheem Mostert, who scored almost 40 fewer points than he did in Week 3. Saquon Barkley should be close to returning, which will help the Phantoms in a major way. Jordan Addison delivered a shocking zero-point performance, and if he would have been just solid, the Phantoms could have won. Still, there were some positive signs, with Khalil Herbert and Mark Andrews scoring over 20. Ultimately, with Barkley coming back, the Phantoms should still be in a good position to contend.

North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 99.26
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 119.22

Summary:
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value improved to an incredible 4-0 with a solid victory. Once again, the Cowboys' defense was pivotal in their win, bouncing back from an unexpectedly poor showing versus Arizona to score over 20 once again. Dallas plays San Francisco next week, and their schedule will become more difficult, so it will be interesting to see if they can keep up this pace. Josh Jacobs, after a rough start, finally had a strong week, which was much needed. Jacobs now looks like he can be an RB1 option, even with poor QB play. Brock Purdy has turned out to be a pivotal selection, as he has replaced a horrific Joe Burrow as the team's QB1. But even though Burrow has been benched, Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value will need him to perform well, as Ja'Marr Chase is dependent upon him. After the game, the team traded Kyle Pitts for Hunter Henry, which is an attempt to solidfy their TE/flex position, but flex still remains an issue for them. Even still, at 4-0, they are in good shape to continue to experiment with their roster. For the Narwhals, it was a tough loss after a Monday Night Miracle in Week 3. The biggest news was that Derrick Henry looks much better, as he scored 23 points including a trademark Derrick Henry stiff-arm run. Additionally, Alvin Kamara looked like his traditional PPR-god self, scoring almost 15 despite only 33 receiving yards. Aside from these two, though, the team struggled. Pittsburgh's defense lost them 5 points, which put them way behind Dallas's defense in the matchup. Davante Adams was also disappointing compared to Week 3, mainly due to an in-game injury he suffered. Tua Tagovailoa also struggled against a tough defense, but he should be back to his usual self with a favorable matchup next week. At 2-2, the Narwhals are still in solid shape, especially if Derrick Henry takes a step up.

Calvin n the Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134) 121.1
Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 99.22

Summary:
Calvin n the Chipmunks improved to an impressive 3-1 thanks to a fantastic outing from Anthony Richardson, who scored almost 30. They have an interesting dynamic at QB, with three young players scoring over 20. After the week, they traded CJ Stroud for additional help, but they are still in good shape with Richardson and Fields. Bijan Robinson was also good, scoring 16 points despite Atlanta's poor game. Ultimately, though, Puka Nacua has powered them all season, and he scored over 26 this week. Nacua is proving to be the steal of the draft, and he should still be valuable even when Cooper Kupp returns. Namesake Calvin Ridley scored an early TD on a busted coverage, but his team will need a bit more from him going forward. The biggest question mark may be Rhamondre Stevenson, who scored just 5 this week. However, Stevenson will face some worse rush defenses going forward, so Calvin n the Chipmunks will hope this makes an impact. At first in their division, they are in the driver's seat for a playoff spot with the key divisional win. For Mahomes on the Range, Thursday was a sign of bad things to come, as Aaron Jones scored under 2 points, which put the team in a hole. This could not be overcome, as the rest of the team's players were average at best. Patrick Mahomes looked poor against New York's defense, throwing 2 interceptions and scoring only 13 points. Their receiving core struggled a bit this week, with Keenan Allen and Garrett Wilson scoring 10 each. However, Wilson looks to be improving, and if New York brings in a better QB, he is likely back to WR1 status. Despite the loss, Mahomes on the Range still looks like a solid team, although they will need Mahomes to improve if they are to win more.

Quattrocento Desperados (BaseballTeen9500) 100.62
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 87.02

Summary:
The Desperados won their first game of the season thanks largely to David Montgomery's monster Thursday night performance. Montgomery scored 3 touchdowns en route to over 30 points, and it appears he has taken the Jamaal Williams role from last season. Trade acquisition Russell Wilson was also strong with 22.22 points. These two performers were responsible for the win, but the rest of the team was a bit of a letdown. San Francisco teammates George Kittle and Deebo Samuel struggled mightily, combining for a measley 2 points. Gary Brightwell was also a risky play that did not pay off, as he scored just two points. Ultimately, the Desperados' season may come down to Austin Ekeler returning from injury, as they have struggled in his absence and benefitted from some matchup luck this week. Still, they have to be happy to have avoided an 0-4 start. For the Pickles, it was a letdown of a week, and they fell to 2-2. They had a chance to pull off the win with a good performance from Daniel Jones Monday night, but Jones struggled mightily, scoring just 8 in a terrible game. The team has acquired CJ Stroud, which should vastly improve their QB play. Had Stroud been available to suit up for them this week, they would have won. Other performers, like Travis Kelce and Travis Etienne, will need to improve their play going forward if the Pickles are to contend. Also, the team was hurt by injuries to Tee Higgins and Javonte Williams, and they will have to monitor this pair's health going forward, although they can always turn to Rachaad White and Marquise Brown. The Pickles will hope CJ Stroud sparks some life into their season,

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 173.84
Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 110.18

Summary:
There are some weeks in fantasy where it seems one's team is firing on all cylinders, and this was one of those weeks for Teiyo Tomozawas. This was evident in the noon window, as Lamar Jackson, Nico Collins, and Stefon Diggs each hovered around the 30-point mark. 90 combined points is more than enough to sink any team, but Teiyo Tomozawas continued to pour it on. On Monday night, Seattle's defense, led by Devon Witherspoon, dominated to score over 30 points. There have been some dominant defensive performances this season, and Seattle delivered another one of them. If there was one hole on the team right now, it would be at TE, with Dallas Goedert off to a miserable start, but TE is so poor around the league that this is far less worrisome than it otherwise would have been. At 2-2, the Tomozawas have to feel good about their momentum going forward. Wesley All Stars lost in a performance that was solid but not enough to overcome the best scoring output of the week from Teiyo Tomozawas. Justin Herbert continued his excellent season, but he suffered an injury that will have to be monitored over LA's bye week. With Mac Jones at backup, this position could prove to be precarious for Wesley All Stars. Isiah Pacheco seems to be emerging as KC's undisputed RB1, and he scored 23 this week. Chris Godwin was also solid, and he seems to have overcome concerns about TB's QB play. D'Andre Swift looks like he could be one of the most consistent RBs in the league, and the undisputed RB1 in Philly will always be a valuable asset, even if Jalen Hurts takes many of his scoring opportunities. The team is probably one player away from having a really strong roster, so they will hope to find an emergence as the season continues.

Standings:
Alvin Lockhart Division
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value 4-0
iPump Plastic 3-1
Detroit Phantoms 2-2

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 5 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 140.56
iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 134.22

Summary:
After starting 0-3, One Man Revolution has to be feeling much better about their team after two straight convincing wins. This week, a legendary performance from DJ Moore started their week on a great note. Due to their opponent's strong week, they still needed strong outings from other contributors. De'Von Achane answered this call, scoring over 20. However, Achane was injured in the game, and will miss the next few weeks at the very least, which is quite disappointing for One Man Revolution. They do have Jordan Addison, Jahmyr Gibbs, and Christian Watson available off the bench, although these players have been nowhere near Achane's level this year. Aside from Moore and Achane, the rest of the team left much to be desired, and they won by less of a margin than they had hoped for. Christian McCaffrey and Jake Ferguson combined for just 16, and made the team a tad bit nervous Sunday night. Still, the team won, and are now just outside the playoff picture after a brutal start. For iPump Plastic, matchup luck doomed them to a tough loss. It may have seemed over after DJ Moore scored 45 on Thursday, but iPump Plastic still fought. Tyreek Hill, after a down week, was as good as expected, scoring 28. New York's defense was also a good play, as they too scored over 20. The connection between Jalen Hurts and AJ Brown seems to be rekindled after a slow start, and the pairing combined for just under 50. However, the team's glaring weakness, running-back, sunk them this week. Miles Sanders and Samaje Perine combined for just 10 points, and had they been just average, the team would have won, Jerome Ford will be a key piece for this team going forward, but they are still in an okay spot.

Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 149.18
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 75.98

Summary:
At 5-0, Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value has been the talk of the league this season. After a questionable start, Ja'Marr Chase is justifying his high selection. In Week 3, Chase carried his team to a win, and this week, he was legendary thanks to a 44-point, three touchdown outing. Also, Brock Purdy is proving to be one of the steals of the draft, as he scored 26 points on 4 touchdown passes (with no interceptions). George Pickens, who has been a bit inconsistent, was superb this week, scoring a dramatic game-winning touchdown en route to a 20+ point performance. Sam Laporta has proven to be another steal, as he almost hit the 20-point mark once again this week. The only major letdown came from Dallas's defense, who lost the team two points, but this can be written off as poor matchup luck. Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value always seems to find late-round steals, and this year has been no exception. They are already essentially a postseason lock. For the Phantoms, luck has been dwindling the past three weeks. They got off to a hot 2-0 start, and won convincingly in Week 2, but Saquon Barkley's injury has cost them in a major way. This week, their runningbacks struggled, with Tony Pollard and Khalil Herbert struggling. Herbert will miss the next few weeks due to injury, so the Phantoms will hope Saquon Barkley is able to return. Raheem Mostert was solid, and should see a role increase with De'Von Achane's injury. But their pass-catchers were even more remarkably poor, with DeVonta Smith, Romeo Doubs, and Tank Dell all combining for under ten points. This is probably the greatest concern for the Phantoms at the moment. DeVonta Smith has taken a bit of a backseat ever since AJ Brown complained about his targets, so the Phantoms may need Smith to also complain. At 2-3, the Phantoms are now less optimistic than before, but they do still have an edge at the top of the power rankings.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 128.26
North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 108.42

Summary:
After a brutal 0-4 start to the season, the defending champion bounced back to earn a key divisional win. Heading into the week, they received a significant boost with Cooper Kupp and Jonathan Taylor returning to the lineup. Cooper Kupp was quite solid, scoring 15 and looking fresh. However, Jonathan Taylor struggled, and scored just 3 points in a backfield split with Zack Moss. However, Indianapolis is going to limit Taylor's touches going forward, so his output should increase. Breece Hall was the star of the game as he scored over 25 points and looked explosive. Hall struggled early, but his role should increase, making him quite valuable even with Zach Wilson at QB. Josh Allen has been excellent this year, and he continued his great play with a 27-point showing. Despite the big win, however, Team Griffith suffered more poor injury luck, with Justin Jefferson injuring his hamstring and being placed on injured reserve almost immediately. With Jefferson out and Team Griffith at 1-4, things may get a bit rough for the defending champ, unless they try to move Jefferson. The Narwhals fell to 2-3 with a tough divisional loss. Heading into Monday night, they were hoping Davante Adams would deliver them another Monday Night Miracle, but he was unable to do so, scoring just 6 points. Adams was injured, so he could not have the revenge game he was hoping to have. Alvin Kamara was the team's best player, as he scored 17 points. Kamara looks to have a strong rapport with Derek Carr, which may establish him as an RB2 at worst. However, the Narwhals had some woes at RB, with Derrick Henry struggling and James Conner headed to IR with an injury. The team's depth is thin at the position, and they may need to rely on Kareem Hunt to see his role increase in Cleveland. They may also have to hope that Tua Tagovailoa establishes more of a connection with Jaylen Waddle, as the pair combined for under 30 points. At 2-3 and with depth issues, the Narwhals may have some concerns going forward.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 109.26
Calvin n the Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134) 108.92

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles won in absoultely nervewracking fashion as they held off a strong effort from Jakobi Meyers at a Monday Night Miracle by asking him nicely to stop. This week, it was the Travis Etienne show for the Pickles. Even though Etienne faced himself in his own fantasy league, he went off this week to score 34. In the offseason, many fantasy commentators feared Etienne would lose touches to Tank Bigsby, but it seems these concerns did not materialize. In addition to Etienne, Travis Kelce was strong, putting up 17 despite suffering a scary-looking foot injury. Luckily for the Pickles, Kelce returned to the game, which was necessary for the win. CJ Stroud was solid against his former fantasy team, although he scored fewer points than he has in the past few weeks. An injury to Roschon Johnson made things more difficult for the Pickles, and Johnson will miss some time, so they may need to insert Rachaad White into their starting lineup. They will also need CeeDee Lamb to get going, and Lamb has voiced frustration over his lack of opportunities, which sometimes signifies a return to form. At 3-2, the Pickles are in good shape, but they may need to begin winning games more convincingly. It was a solid start for Calvin n the Chipmunks Sunday morning, with Calvin Ridley scoring 17. If Ridley can improve, his team will be in much better shape. Additionally, a key question was answered positively for Calvin n the Chipmunks, as Puka Nacua still received a decent target share despite Cooper Kupp's return. Ultimately, though, the team lost because of an injury to Anthony Richardson. Richardson scored just 4, and if he played the whole game, Calvin n the Chipmunks certainly would have won. The team does have an improving Justin Fields available, so if Fields can continue his strong play, Richardson's injury will be less impactful. Rhamondre Stevenson is the biggest point of concern for his team, as he scored just 3 this week, and is borderline benchable. The team may have an option in Zack Moss, who scored over 30 despite Jonathan Taylor's return, but RB2 is still a question. Despite a heartbreaking loss, the team is still in good shape in their division.

Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 80.64
Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 75.34

Summary:
Wesley All Stars improved to 3-2, although their win came down to matchup luck. Bye weeks limited their potential output, as DK Metcalf, Chris Godwin, and Justin Herbert were all unavailable this week. Their replacements, Josh Dobbs, DJ Chark, and Antonio Gibson, were pedestrian, although DJ Chark did see an interesting role increase. D'Andre Swift was his team's best player once again, scoring 13. His output is limited due to Philly's "brotherly shove" play, which gives QB Jalen Hurts the majority of their rushing TDs. Still, Swift is quite valuable. Isiah Pacheco also looks strong, and can emerge as a dependable RB2 if Kansas City continues to feature him. Overall, though, the team may not have enough star power to be a major threat, but they have to be happy with their tight win. It was a disappointing loss for Mahomes on the Range, as the game was quite winnable. Aaron Jones's injury has been devastating for the team, as he did not play despite being expected to start. Keenan Allen's bye week was also tough to overcome. Had these two played, Mahomes on the Range probably would be standing at 3-2 at the moment. Their RBs were woeful in Jones's absence, as James Cook and Devin Singletary combined for a mere 3 points. Their receivers were also rough, with no one surpassing double-digit points. Garrett Wilson was selected with a high pick, but Aaron Rodgers's Week 1 injury has devastated his scoring outputs this year. Despite the loss, if some performers can return to health/expectations, Mahomes on the Range may still contend.

Quattrocento Desperados (Baseballteen9500) 141.84
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 110.34

Summary:
After a rough 0-3 start, the Desperados are starting to look a bit dangerous. They benefitted significantly from San Francisco's blowout win over Dallas, as George Kittle, Deebo Samuel, and even Jordan Mason scored over 10. The team's MVP so far has been David Montgomery, and he scored just around 20 points once again. Montgomery seems to be taking the 2022 Jamaal Williams role for the Lions, which should result in many touchdowns. But the biggest surprise has been Adam Thielen, who scored over 20 for the second time this season. Thielen was overlooked all offseason, but he may turn out to be a steal. The Desperados have looked this impressive without having Austin Ekeler available, so his return could make the Desperados a much scarier team. For Teiyo Tomozawas, it was a disappointing loss after a great Week 5. Stefon Diggs looks to be a fantasy star once again this year, scoring over 20. Dallas Goedert also had a much-needed bounceback game by dropping 21. Waiver pickup Jaleel McLaughlin was worth the pick-up with 16 points. Funny enough, the team's bench nearly outscored the starters, which is a great sign for the team's depth. The team's biggest questions are their starting running-backs. Najee Harris and Joe Mixon combined for just over 10 points, which is simply not enough. Najee Harris seems to be in danger of losing his spot to Jaylen Warren, but the team does have depth to replace him. Lamar Jackson was also bad, but this can be attributed to brutal WR play. However, this may not improve any time soon, so Lamar's value may be tied to his rushing. Although they are 2-3, the Tomozawas are still in a good spot thanks to their depth.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 6 RECAP

Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 106.28
One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 95.64

Summary:
It was a big win for the Wesley All Stars, as they improved to 4-2. This season, special teams has been a make-or-break factor in many matchups, and that was again the case here, as Justin Tucker led his team in scoring with an incredible 19-point showing. This made the difference in the game, as had Tucker continued to struggle, it would have potentially been a close loss for the Wesley All Stars. Justin Herbert returned to the lineup and was solid, scoring 18, although Wesley All Stars would like to see more from him. Michael Pittman was also strong, scoring 15 despite Anthony Richardson's absence, which is a good sign. Additionally, Isiah Pacheco's role continues to increase, which may put him in line for a top-15 finish at RB. Overall, there are no glaring areas of weakness for the Wesley All Stars, aside from maybe at flex-2. But, their key contributors may have to perform better if they want their scoring outputs to improve, as they have won some pretty close games recently. Even still, 4-2 is nothing to complain about. It was a disaster of a week for One Man Revolution. After a miserable 0-3 start, their outlook seemed to be on the mend, with a shiny RB trio of Christian McCaffrey, Kyren Williams, and De'Von Achane. Now, all three of those running-backs are injured, and One Man Revolution suffered greatly as a result. Also, Dameon Pierce and Chris Olave have been quite disappointing, and D.J. Moore regressed after his insane Week 4. Further, Kirk Cousins is going to be very limited until Justin Jefferson returns (if ever), and Jake Ferguson is underwhelming at TE. The team just acquired Rachaad White and Tee Higgins, but these players will probably not be enough to save them from what could be a brutal, potentially season-killing three week stretch.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 111.44
Calvin n the Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134) 94.22

Summary:
After a rough losing skid, the Phantoms have to feel better about returning to their winning ways. With De'Von Achane out, the Phantoms knew Raheem Mostert would play a major role, and he did just that, scoring over 30 for the second time in three weeks. For as long as Achane is out, Mostert should be a solidified RB1 in the league's best offense. The team's RB trio of Mostert, Pollard, and Barkley will be the crucial factor for them going forward. With Barkley back in the lineup, the Phantoms looked a lot stronger, and Tony Pollard also improved this week thanks to a late-game big play. Ultimately, the biggest concern for the team as at WR, with DeVonta Smith currently struggling, and a lack of WRs available. However, Jameson Williams caught a major touchdown, and Diontae Johnson is on the verge of returning from injury, so the Phantoms may be in a much better position at WR if either of them can contribute. They would also like Mark Andrews to get going, as he has struggled compared to draft position. With the win, the Phantoms remain in contention, and have a major power rankings tiebreaker edge. Calvin n the Chipmunks lost due to a QB injury last week, and a QB injury hurt them once again. Justin Fields suffered an injured thumb, causing him to score just four points. With Anthony Richardson out for the season, QB has become a major problem for Calvin n the Chipmunks. Additionally, there were some concerning signs at WR, with Calvin Ridley and Puka Nacua each scoring just 4.6. Of the two, Nacua is probably the biggest concern, as Cooper Kupp ate into his targets, while for Ridley, gamescript meant more run plays for Jacksonville. On the bright side, Amon-Ra St. Brown is elite, and Jakobi Meyers has been strong even with Davante Adams playing. Rhamondre Stevenson even looked the best he has looked so far in 2023. At 3-3, Calvin n the Chipmunks are still in the contention picture, but their outlook may be dependent on finding a solution at QB, which is going to be difficult.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 111.56
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 86.72

Summary:
After starting 0-4, the defending champion has looked better as of late. This was expected with Cooper Kupp's return, as Kupp scored 24 points this week. Also, Breece Hall looked great once again, scoring 17. The team's X-factor may be Jonathan Taylor, who has now played two weeks with the team. He is yet to score in double-digits, but he expects to see an increase in workload, and he just signed an extension that will keep him in Indianapolis. Gamescript may have cost Taylor in this one, as the Colts trailed big throughout the game. The two biggest questions for Team Griffith have to be Josh Allen and Justin Jefferson. This week, Josh Allen was horrific in many points, and finished with just 13. If Allen continues to struggle, Team Griffith will struggle as well. Team Griffith will also have to root for Minnesota to improve, as if they fall to 2-6 or something similar, Justin Jefferson could be shut down for an extended period of time, which will weaken the team. Still, even at 2-4, there are some outcomes where Team Griffith sneaks back into contention, but a lot of these rely on health. Teiyo Tomozawas have been arguably the most inconsistent team in the league this season, and it was a poor outing for them in Week 6. Lamar Jackson and Stefon Diggs were their only real standouts, and Stefon Diggs still scored his lowest total since Week 6. Their running-back situation is their greatest concern, as Joe Mixon has been a bust so far in 2023. Mixon scored just 7 this week and is yet to score over 15 this season. Jaleel McLaughlin was also poor in Javonte Williams's return, scoring just 5. The team may not have a consistent alternative, as Najee Harris and AJ Dillon have also been poor. Therefore, the team may have to be carried by their WRs to become more consistent.

North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 102.98
Quattrocento Desperados (BaseballTeen9500) 77.1

Summary:
The North Pole Narwhals improved to 3-3, albeit with some matchup luck. Their most positive sign of the week was Derrick Henry's improvement, with Henry bouncing back to score 18 including a vintage touchdown. If Henry can continue to perform like his old self, the Narwhals will have a chance to contend. Alvin Kamara has also been strong despite New Orleans's offensive struggles, as he scored 13. Kansas City's defense was a smart play, as they picked apart Russell Wilson to score 17. The team's biggest concern at the moment is Davante Adams's health. When Adams is at his healthiest, he is a QB-proof WR1, but he seems to be dealing with a difficult injury at the moment. This week, he scored just 3. If Adams returns to full health, alongside a strong RB pairing in Derrick Henry and Alvin Kamara, the Narwhals will be serious playoff threats. Their flex position could use some addressing, as Michael Gallup and Elijah Moore were underwhelming, but they may need to just bide time until James Conner returns. Despite their matchup luck, they can still be happy with the win. For the Desperados, injuries were the week's theme. After last week, they appeared to be in a strong position, with Austin Ekeler about to return. But this week may have put paid to that. David Montgomery and Deebo Samuel were both injured, which meant they combined for under 5 points. Also, Austin Ekeler was limited by injury, scoring just 8. George Kittle, despite being fully healthy, scored less than a point, and DeAndre Hopkins and Russell Wilson were also bad. It was just a nightmare of a week for the Desperados, but they can take some solace in Adam Thielen's unexpected WR1 season. The question for them will be whether they can mitigate their injuries, and at 2-4, they have less leeway to experiment.

iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 144.8
Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 118.44

Summary:
After a hard luck loss last week, iPump Plastic bounced back in a big way, with Tyreek Hill leading the way once again with 25 points. Hill is making an early case for fantasy MVP, as he's only had two subpar weeks this year. The Jalen Hurts-AJ Brown stack is also proving to be an incredible selection, as the pair combined for 35 points despite Philadelphia's terrible offensive game. Overall, it was an excellent team performance, as Darren Waller was the only single-digit scorer. Even Salvon Ahmed, a late flyer, was decent, performing better than Miles Sanders has this season. At 4-2, the 2021 champion is in good shape for a potential postseason return. For Mahomes on the Range, it was a tough luck loss, as they would have beat many other teams this week. Their receiving core is their biggest strength, as Garrett Wilson, Keenan Allen, and Zay Flowers were all impressive. Brandon Aiyuk was good too, although his performances have slowed down since his hot start. With Samuel and McCaffrey injured, Aiyuk should be in line for a role increase. At RB, Mahomes on the Range is weaker. James Cook and Devin Singletary combined for only 13 points, but Devin Singletary got more of a role increase. Aaron Jones remains the team's biggest X-factor, as his absence has hurt his team mightily. Hopefully, Jones will return after the bye, but if he does not, it could make things difficult for the 2-4 team.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 123.56
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 89.7

Summary:
It was a week to remember for the Atomic Pickles, as they improved to 4-2 and handed Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value their first loss. Thursday night was a sign of good things to come for them, as Travis Kelce and Courtland Sutton each scored around 15, and Rashee Rice also looked a bit impressive. Then, Travis Etienne continued his hot stretch by scoring 21 points. It looks like Etienne has silenced the Tank Bigsby noise from the offseason, and is a top 5-10 RB going forward. On Monday, CeeDee Lamb impressed despite only 7 targets, as he scored 15. The team's worst players of the week, Rachaad White and Tee Higgins, were just shipped to One Man Revolution, as the Pickles are banking on a second half resurgence from Jahmyr Gibbs, and for Drake London to build off his solid Week 6. If this occurs, the Pickles should be in great shape to return to the postseason. For Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value, it was an underwhelming week after five straight wins. Brock Purdy symbolized this, as he scored just 7 after a great week last week. Ja'Marr Chase was also bound for regression, and he scored over 30 less points than he did last week. The RB core of Josh Jacobs and Kenneth Walker were decent, combining for just around 30, but this was not enough to make the game close. If Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value has one weakness, it is probably their depth, as their flex options combined for just under 20 points, and their bench scored just over 30 total. Despite the poor week and the first loss, the team has a significant margin for error, as they are essentially 2-3 wins away from clinching a playoff berth.

Standings:
Alvin Lockhart Division
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value 5-1
iPump Plastic 4-2
Detroit Phantoms 3-3
North Pole Narwhals 3-3
One Man Revolution 2-4
Team Griffith 2-4

Gilgamesh Star Division
Wesley All Stars 4-2
Atomic Pickles 4-2
Calvin n the Chipmunks 3-3
Mahomes on the Range 2-4
Teiyo Tomozawas 2-4

Power Rankings (Based on Total Points Scored):
1. iPump Plastic (741.18)
2. Detroit Phantoms (721.16)
3. One Man Revolution (700.76)
4. Mahomes on the Range (699.98)
5. North Pole Narwhals (683.82)

Best of luck in Week 7!

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 7 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 120.62
Calvin n the Chipmunks (Philliesfan134) 95.36

Summary:
Heading into Monday night, the vibes were low for One Man Revolution, as it looked like their season was essentially about to be put to an end. But then, Kirk Cousins, Christian McCaffrey, and Jordan Addison all scored over 20 points, which allowed One Man Revolution a comfortable win. McCaffrey was not supposed to play this week, but managed to be healthy enough to play, and this was significant for One Man Revolution. Without him, they would be in a brutal spot, with De'Von Achane and Kyren Williams already injured for an extended period of time. The team made a trade with the Atomic Pickles to acquire Rachaad White. White scored 12 this week, which was okay, but the team would have been better off holding onto Jahmyr Gibbs. Aside from Jordan Addison, their WR position seems to be a black hole. Chris Olave has had a brutal season, DJ Moore was hindered by Justin Fields's injury, and Christian Watson has been inefficient and injured all year. At 3-4, they are still alive, but they will probably need to be at 5-5 after Week 10 to have a shot. For Calvin n the Chipmunks, it was an extremely frustrating loss, with two baffling performances sinking them. On Thursday, namesake WR Calvin Ridley was non-existent, scoring just one. After a hot start, it appears Ridley has been replaced by Christian Kirk. Then, Bijan Robinson was held out due to an undisclosed illness, and failed to score even a single point. Receiving just one point from two of their best players was going to be tough to overcome. Puka Nacua looked better this week, scoring 19, and Amon-Ra St. Brown was as consistent as ever. However, QB is going to be a major issue for them going forward with Justin Fields injured. Sam Howell was poor this week, and may even be benched by the Commanders. Jaxon Smith-Njigba and Rhamondre Stevenson are options off the bench to improve the team's flex issues, but they are likely feeling disappointed with this loss.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 110.1
Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 92.06

Summary:
After an 0-4 start, many wrote off the defending champion. But since, they have won three straight, and are right back in the thick of contention. Injuries have been the story of the season for them, and they appear to be getting healthier. Jonathan Taylor scored just about 20 points and looks to be returning to form, and Mike Evans scored 17. Cooper Kupp was unusually poor this week, scoring just 5, but this may be written off as poor matchup luck. Josh Allen, despite his real life struggles, was a strong fantasy option, as he scored 24 points. Allen has been limited as a runner, but rumblings are that Buffalo may try to increase his rushing attempts, which will only increase his fantasy value. Also, in Minnesota, Team Griffith benefitted from the Vikings' upset win, as staying in contention will likely make Minnesota more likely to bring back Justin Jefferson earlier. If Jefferson returns to health, Team Griffith's core looks a lot better than it did in the first three weeks, and they may be able to contend for a playoff spot. It was a mediocre performance from Wesley All Stars, who dropped to 4-3. A late inactive cost them, as DK Metcalf missed his first ever game. Had the team started Gus Edwards in his stead, they would have narrowly won, but they did not expect to have to replace Metcalf. Their best performer was Michael Pittman, but his performance was bolstered by a late 75-yard touchdown. T.J. Hockenson was also solid, although he suffered a few injuries on Monday. Isiah Pacheco and D'Andre Swift are also a solid RB duo, although they needed to do more this week to have given their team a chance to win. Justin Herbert's play has been concerning thus far, and he was quite poor this week, scoring just 10. Wesley All Stars still occupy the fourth seed, but they will need their stars to perform better.

North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 97.94
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 103.86

Summary:
Teiyo Tomozawas improved to 3-4 with a possible season-saving win. It was almost disastrous, as the team benched Lamar Jackson for Jared Goff, which cost them 24 points. Luckily for them, they benefitted from some matchup luck, but also received some solid performances, especially at WR. Christian Kirk appears to have taken over as the WR1 in Jacksonville, and scored 16 points this week. Stefon Diggs, despite Buffalo's loss, was decent with 15 points. Dallas Goedert was also strong, and appears to have quieted concerns stemming from a poor start. If the team had a glaring issue, it is at flex-2, as Gabe Davis scored just a point. Also, RB2 could use some improvement, as Joe Mixon has struggled all year and was on bye this week. Ultimately, if Lamar Jackson can perform similarly to how he did this week, the Tomozawas will be in a much stronger position despite issues at flex and RB. For the Narwhals, it was a pretty disappointing defeat, especially considering Alvin Kamara and Kareem Hunt's strong showings. All of a sudden, the Narwhals may have a strong RB core, with James Conner close to returning from injury, Derrick Henry improving, and Kareem Hunt replacing an injured Jerome Ford. However, their receiving core looks much shakier, with Davante Adams and Jaylen Waddle suddenly starting to struggle. Odell Beckham and Elijah Moore are also subpar flex options. Although it was a disappointing week, the Narwhals should still be able to contend going forward.

iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 167.46
Quattrocento Desperados (Baseballteen9500) 74.16

Summary:
As it stands, iPump Plastic may be the league's scariest team. Their WR core of Tyreek Hill and AJ Brown will be absolutely elite week-to-week, and they combined for a remarkable 44 points this week. Jalen Hurts, despite his passing struggles, will always be a threat due to his rushing talent, and he showcased this with 23 points this week. If the team had a major weakness, it is at RB, but this week, their RBs were phenomenal. D'Onta Foreman was an incredible pick-up as he surprisingly scored over 30 this week. With Roschon Johnson possibly returning soon, Foreman's role may be limited, but the Bears would be foolish to give Foreman less looks. iPump Plastic will need this to happen, as Jerome Ford suffered an injury and will miss the next two weeks, so they do not have any viable alternative starting RB options. Their decision to build around WR was wise, as it has been a much better year for WRs than RBs, but RB is a position to watch going forward. They could also use Amari Cooper and Tyler Lockett to improve, but this may depend on them getting better QB play. With the big win, iPump Plastic has to be considered the best team in the league, as they are both the #1 seed in the standings and power rankings. For the Desperados, it has been a rough two week stretch. Since they built so heavily around the 49ers, San Fran's struggles have sunk them. Deebo Samuel missed this week, and George Kittle was just okay with 10.5. David Montgomery's absence has been a major problem, as his replacements at RB2 have been nowhere near his level of production. This week, Jeff Wilson scored less than a point, and was subsequently released. Austin Ekeler has also struggled, as he scored a weak five points this weeek. Ekeler's teammate Josh Palmer has been a pleasant surprise replacing Deebo Samuel. Now, the Desperados find themselves in a rough spot in last place, and may be just two losses away from elimination.

Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 109.56
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 88.78

Summary:
Mahomes on the Range were powered to their third win thanks to their namesake QB. Patrick Mahomes, like usual, dominated against the Chargers, putting up a strong 33 points. This was a much needed performance from Mahomes, as he hadn't scored over 20 points since week 3. Aside from Mahomes, James Cook also impressed with 17 points. If Cook can keep it going, Mahomes on the Range will be in much better position. Aaron Jones also returned to the lineup, but was disappointing against a bad Denver rush defense. This was likely due to him being eased in to the lineup, but his team will need more from him. The team's WRs struggled, with no one scoring over 10 points. Keenan Allen was probably the most disappointing, scoring just 7 as the Chargers decided to run more for some reason. Brandon Aiyuk has also cooled down since Brock Purdy has started to struggle, as he has now scored under 10 in three weeks. With the win, Mahomes on the Range remained in contention, but they will need better performances going forward from some key contributors. Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value has struggled since their initial 5-0 start, and they have now dropped two straight. This is in good part due to Brock Purdy's struggles, as since he has started to struggle, his fantasy team has as well. They may consider a turn to Joe Burrow, who has looked better as of late. Josh Jacobs has had a rough season after an RB1 season last year, and he scored under 5 this week. The only solid performers were Kenny Walker and George Pickens, but Walker performed worse than he has usually performed this year. Ultimately, the team's biggest issue this year has been at flex, and those issues continued with their flex players combining for just 12. This game can possibly be written off to Ja'Marr Chase's bye week, as he could have easily made the difference in this one. Still, at 5-2, Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value built themselves a solid cushion.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 143.98
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 97.64

Summary:
Aside from iPump Plastic, the Atomic Pickles look like one of the most dominant teams in the league this year. Travis Kelce appears to be fully healthy as he scored nearly 30 this week. His teammate Rashee Rice also looks like a potential league winner this year, as he has emerged as Patrick Mahomes's top WR target. Heading into the week, the team acquired Jahmyr Gibbs from One Man Revolution, and this move paid off, as Gibbs finally had his best game of the year with a 23 point showing. Travis Etienne was as good as he has been all year, scoring 21, and silencing the noise against him from this offseason. Even Tyson Bagent wasn't terrible, but the team will be happy to have C.J. Stroud back next week. As it stands, there are no glaring weaknesses on the Pickles, and if CeeDee Lamb picks it up, they could be scary going forward. For the Phantoms, it has been a forgettable year. Raheem Mostert, after shining last week, was pedestrian with only 5. DeVonta Smith has also had a brutal season, and he scored under 10 once again. Flex is also an issue, as their flexes combined for just 14. Still, there were some bright spots, as Mark Andrews gave his best performance of the season with a 20-point outing against Detroit. Saquon Barkley was also strong. Tyrod Taylor may be a better option for Barkley than Daniel Jones was, but that remains to be seen. For the Phantoms to contend, they will likely need to solve the WR issues that have plagued them this year.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 8 RECAP

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 156.7
One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 137.66

Summary:
After starting the season at the bottom of the power rankings but toward the top of the standings, the Atomic Pickles now appear to be one of the league's most dangerous teams. CeeDee Lamb was the standout of the week across all teams this week as he scored an incredible 35 points. Also, their trade with One Man Revolution directly led to their win this week, as Jahmyr Gibbs has been incredible the last two weeks. The question for the Pickles will be whether Gibbs will maintain a similar role when David Montgomery returns, which remains to be seen. Travis Etienne, in spite of ridiculous offseason narratives, has been one of the best fantasy players of the year, and he scored over 20 once again. Even Javonte Williams, who started off slow, looked great on the team's bench. Generally, when Travis Kelce gives his team less than ten, they will be in a rough spot, but the Pickles are on fire right now, so Kelce's struggles didn't cost them the win. At 6-2, they essentially have a spot locked up. For One Man Revolution, it's been arguably the most frustrating fantasy season. They lost despite a strong effort, and lost yet another player, Kirk Cousins, to a major injury. Christian McCaffrey has been the best fantasy player in the league this year, but it looks like One Man Revolution will be wasting his heroic efforts. Dameon Pierce, Chris Olave, and Christian Watson have been massive letdowns. Tee Higgins looks to be improving as Joe Burrow returns to health, but Ja'Marr Chase will always limit his value. At 3-5, One Man Revolution is in a precarious spot, especially with Christian McCaffrey set to miss next week on bye. There is a good chance they will heat up after Week 10, as Kyren Williams and De'Von Achane may return from injury, but it will most likely be too late for them.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 116.56
Calvin n The Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134) 92

Summary:
After an ugly 0-4 start, the defending champion appeared to be in for a brutal season. Since then, they have won four in a row and are barely outside of a playoff spot. They can mainly thank Josh Allen, who has been superb. Allen scored 29 on Thursday, which is especially impressive given Thursdays are generally rough spots for QBs. Additionally, Breece Hall appears to be a potential league winner, as he scored 18 this week. Hall has been strong despite Aaron Rodgers's absence, which is a great sign for his team. Aside from Hall and Allen, the rest of the team was a bit disappointing, especially Cooper Kupp, who scored just 4. Jonathan Taylor was also mediocre, scoring just 10. Zack Moss could be a vulture to Taylor this year, but at least Taylor will still be a solid RB2 option at worst. The team's biggest issue is Alexander Mattison, who has been brutal this season. This week, he scored just 3. Brian Robinson may prove to be a better option. Finally, Justin Jefferson's value may have taken a major hit with Kirk Cousins's season-ending achilles injury. The Vikings did acquire Josh Dobbs, though, which could save Jefferson's value. Even still, when your team wins with just 4 from Cooper Kupp, you have to feel good about your outlook, and Team Griffith is right on the edge of a playoff spot. For Calvin n the Chipmunks, it has been a rough stretch. They started off strong with 15 from Dalton Kincaid, but cooled down quickly. QB has been the biggest headache for them since Justin Fields and Anthony Richardson were injured. This week, Bryce Young only mustered around 14, which was solid but not enough to make a major impact. Bijan Robinson, after one of the weirdest fantasy storylines of the season, scored just 10, which is okay but not RB1 numbers. Calvin Ridley was terrible in Week 7, but was a bit better this week, scoring double digits. Monday Night was a bit ugly, as Amon-Ra St. Brown and Jakobi Meyers combined for just 15. If there was a bright spot, their bench performed well, and they may have some solid replacement options for struggling performers. Still, at 3-5, things may be a bit precarious for Calvin n the Chipmunks.

Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 132.72
North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 128.36

Summary:
Wesley All Stars improved to 5-3 and strengthened their grip on the final playoff spot. Justin Herbert was their standout and leading scorer, droppin a nice 24 points. But surprisingly, Rashid Shaheed was their other standout with 22 points. Starting him could have been disastrous, as Gus Edwards scored 28, but it was a win-win for Wesley All Stars, as Edwards now appears to be a strong RB1/RB2. D'Andre Swift, Chris Godwin, and Michael Pittman were all strong, each scoring around 15. TJ Hockenson also performed well, but his value may have taken a hit with Kirk Cousins's injury. For Wesley All Stars, D.K. Metcalf could be the biggest X-Factor. He has struggled a bit this year along with Geno Smith's fall-off, and he scored under 10. If Metcalf can get going, Wesley All Stars may have one of the strongest rosters in the league, as they do not have many major flaws. For the Narwhals, it was one of the worst losses a team has suffered this season. All they needed was a few points from Davante Adams, but he somehow scored just 1. Adams appeared miserable on the sidelines, and since he was not traded, his value has taken a significant nosedive. This spoiled great outings from Alvin Kamara and Jaylen Waddle. Kamara appears to have re-established himself as an RB1, and Jaylen Waddle gave his best performance in what has been a bit of a disappointing season so far. Derrick Henry was also decent with 14. Another infuriating moment occured when Odell Beckham was injured in Baltimore's win, which led to him scoring 0 points for the Narwhals. Ultimately then, had Adams not been overthrown on a big play late, and had Beckham remained healthy, the Narwhals would have been in a much better spot. Instead, they are now a disappointing 3-5.

iPump Plastic (iPump Plastic) 139.56
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 103.98

Summary:
iPump Plastic, up to this point, are the best team in the league. They clearly built around wide receivers, and this has paid off in a major way. AJ Brown and Tyreek Hill have been one of the most dependable WR duos in league history, as they once again surpassed the 20-point mark. Tyler Lockett and Amari Cooper were also solid, combining for 30 points. With 80 points from their receivers, iPump Plastic were in a great spot, and Jalen Hurts solidified things with 27 points of his own. They only received four points from their running-backs, but this was pretty immaterial, as they were still able to win by 36. Ultimately, the strength of their receiving core will offset their weaknesses at RB and TE. TE may be a rough spot for them with Darren Waller injured, but their WRs should be able to pick up the slack. At 6-2 and in the first power rankings slot, iPump Plastic are almost guaranteed to be playing into mid-late December. For the Tomozawas, it has been a frustratingly inconsistent season. Lamar Jackson epitomized this, as he scored 20 less points than he did last week. Stefon Diggs, Christian Kirk, and Nico Collins also took significant steps back this week, adding to the inconsistency. On a more positive note, Joe Mixon looked impressive as Cincy's offense continues to improve. But still, Najee Harris has been a weakness at RB2, and the team does not have many options to replace them. Unlike iPump Plastic, the team's WRs haven't been enough to cover their weakness at RB, and they now sit at 3-5 and on the outside looking in.

Quattrocento Desperados (Baseballteen9500) 128.36
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 137.52

Summary:
After a 2-game skid, Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value returned to their winning ways in a narrow win. Sam LaPorta has been one of the hidden gems of the season, and this week he secured a walk-off win for his team with a 15-point, game-winning performance. But the best sign for the team is definitely Joe Burrow's resurgence. Burrow dropped 27 this week, which in turn helped Ja'Marr Chase reach the 20-point mark. Burrow's improvement has coincided with Brock Purdy's struggles, so the timing could not have been better. Josh Jacobs also helped deliver the win Monday, as he somehow scored 15 despite Vegas's horrible offensive outing. Dallas's defense has been one of the team's X-factors all year, and they were crucial in delivering the win with 17 points. At 6-2, Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value should be able to clinch a postseason appearance soon. For the Desperados, it was a tough loss, even though they bounced back from a poor showing last week. DeAndre Hopkins was by far their most pleasant surprise, as he scored over 30 points with Will Levis becoming the starter in Tennessee. If Hopkins can be an WR1/2 the rest of the way, the Desperados could put together a solid receiving core, but Deebo Samuel will also need to return to health. Austin Ekeler also looked better thanks to his pass-catching, so the team can have a solid RB pairing once David Montgomery returns. However, at 2-6, the Desperados are most likely one loss away from elimination, so it will take a miracle run for them to contend for the playoffs.

Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 93.64
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers) 91.22

Summary:
Mahomes on the Range scrapped a narrow victory over the Phantoms. Namesake Patrick Mahomes suffered through his worst fantasy performance in years, although this can likely be attributed to his illness. Mahomes should be posed for a bounceback against Miami in Europe next week. The team's pass catchers were solid, but not anything to write home about, although Garrett Wilson was pretty impressive in one of the worst offensive games of the season. For Mahomes on the Range, their RB duo will be the biggest key of the season. Aaron Jones's health has been their biggest storyline, as he has not been truly healthy since his tremendous Week 1 game in Chicago. This week, Jones scored just 6, and Matt LaFleur seemed to suggest he was not fully healthy yet. Additionally, James Cook struggled, and the Bills just acquired Leonard Fournette, which may eat into his touches. The team does not have a dependable RB on the bench, so this will continue to be an issue for them. Even still, 4-4 is a good place to be with how the standings are shaping up. The Phantoms fell to 3-5 in a tough loss. No one was particularly impressive, as their leading scorer was Saquon Barkley, who scored just 14.3. Tony Pollard has been one of the league's starkest disappointments, as he scored just 6 this week. Pollard has not scored over 15 since Week 2, and so he looks like one of the league's biggest disappoinments. DeVonta Smith has also been one of the most frustrating players in the league, as had the Phantoms started him over Demercado or Dell, they would have won. Diontae Johnson looks to be in line for an impressive second half, but Kenny Pickett's injury may negatively affect his outlook. Now, the Phantoms are in a tough spot, and will have to go on a run down the stretch to get back in contention.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 9 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 144.86
Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 75.7

Summary:
After a tough luck loss last week, One Man Revolution was far luckier this week. Heading into the week, they were quite concerned about their RB2 situation, as bye weeks and injuries forced them to start Keontay Ingram. Ingram was as bad as expected, scoring less than a point, but the rest of the team picked up the slack. Rachaad White has been one of the best fantasy performers in the past few weeks, and this week he scored over 25. Dak Prescott has also looked strong recently, scoring 28 this week. This also benefitted TE Jake Ferguson, who scored a season-best 18.6. The Chargers' defense was a strong streaming play as they scored an incredible 29 points, backed by a punt return TD. Ultimately, the question for One Man Revolution going forward is at WR. Tee Higgins may be providing an answer for them, as he scored 15 points on 8 catches for over 100 yards. DJ Moore and Chris Olave have been extremely frustrating at points, and getting them going will be a point of emphasis for One Man Revolution. If they can win next week, they may be in a good spot with Kyren Williams and De'Von Achane nearing returns from injury. For Mahomes on the Range, it was a rough defeat. Patrick Mahomes started off with a strong touchdown drive early Sunday but soon cooled off, finishing with just 15. The last two weeks have been incredibly disappointing for Mahomes as he has scored just 20 in those two weeks. Hopefully for Mahomes on the Range, the bye week will be a needed refresher for Mahomes. In more positive news, Aaron Jones scored 15 in a feature role after head coach Matt LaFleur promised to "unleash" him. Aside from Jones, though, the rest of the team was extremely underwhelming. Garrett Wilson and Keenan Allen were average, combining for just 20. Everyone else was quite poor, and the most concerning performance came from James Cook, who scored just 5 points as his role continues to diminish. Mahomes on the Range will need Cook's workload to return to its' midseason level, but that may be difficult with Leonard Fournette entering the picture. With the loss, Mahomes on the Range is in a tough spot, especially with Mahomes' bye week coming up, but they can still rebound.

North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 85.32
Calvin n the Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134) 74.68

Summary:
The North Pole Narwhals improved to 4-5 with a crucial, albeit a bit lucky, season-saving win. Derrick Henry, who struggled to begin the season, has improved as of late, and scored 17 this week. Aside from Henry, though, everyone else was quite forgettable. Odell Beckham was a pleasant surprise, though, as he scored 12, by far his best game of the year. Tua Tagovailoa was also okay in a tough matchup, although he definitely could have done better than 12 points. Alvin Kamara underwhelmed with decreased usage, scoring just 9. Ultimately, the WR position is a major red flag for the Narwhals, as Davante Adams has been horrific since his Sunday Night Miracle in Week 3. Nothing seems to be helping Adams in Vegas, and he is pushing being benchable at this point. Jaylen Waddle has also struggled this year, and Miami's offensive woes as of late have not helped him. In more positive news, James Conner seems poised to return from injury soon. He was a major part of the Narwhals' early success, and Kyler Murray's return may immensely benefit Conner. Still, the Narwhals will be pressed to distinguish themselves in a crowded field of 4-5 teams. It has been a brutal five-game losing streak for Calvin n the Chipmunks, who cannot seem to catch a break. Had they started Rhamondre Stevenson at flex, they would have won this week, but they instead lost by 11. Losing Anthony Richardson and Justin Fields was a devastating blow, as their QB fill-ins have not performed well. This week, Will Levis scored just 8. Also, Bijan Robinson has been incredibly frustrating, as he scored under 5 this week. Robinson's value seems to be dependent upon Arthur Smith's firing. Zack Moss also appears to be on the verge of irrelevancy as Jonathan Taylor's workload increases, and Puka Nacua has been harmed by Matthew Stafford's injury. The only bright spot has been Dalton Kincaid, who is emerging as a top 5-7 TE option. But at 3-6, it is going to be tough for Kincaid's breakout to lead his team to the playoffs.

iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 139.08
Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 74.74

Summary:
In 2021, iPump Plastic won the title in their inaugural season. Now, they appear to be the league's best team once again. Their Jalen Hurts-AJ Brown stack is unstoppable, as the pair combined for nearly 50 points, which is essentially a week-to-week guarantee at this point. TE was once a weakness for them, but Dalton Schultz was a strong option with over 20 this week. Also, Deshaun Watson's return has benefitted Amari Cooper, as Cooper scored over 20 this week. Jerome Ford also benefitted, scoring 10. Tyreek Hill is usually the team's MVP, but he was underwhelming in a tough matchup. But his team picked up the slack, scoring nearly 140. D'Onta Foreman was also a solid waiver pick-up, and although he scored under 10, he should still maintain an increased role. Aside from RB, it is hard to point out a weakness in this roster, which has to be considered one of, if not the title favorite up to this point. For Wesley All Stars, it was an ugly loss. Michael Pittman and TJ Hockenson were the only ones to score in double figures, and they still only scored just 10. Justin Herbert was a major letdown, scoring just 7, although he did face New York's difficult secondary. Their RB core, usually strong, was poor this week, with D'Andre Swift and Isiah Pacheco somehow combining for just 12. Of the two, Swift is the most concerning, as he has been average at best. This is largely due to much goal line work being taken away by Jalen Hurts, whom the team faced this week. WR was also weak this week, with Chris Godwin, DK Metcalf, and Rashid Shaheed each struggling. At 5-4, Wesley All Stars are still in a good spot recordwise, but they will need many players to step up their play if they are to make a playoff push.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 101.18
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 93.74

Summary:
Teiyo Tomozawas secured a major victory to put them right on the edge of playoff contention. Heading into Monday night, they just needed to avoid a clunker from Cameron Dicker, and they did so, as Dicker put up 11. As always, Stefon Diggs was their standout as he scored just about 20 despite Buffalo's loss. But most crucially for the Tomozawas, their RBs appear to be finally improving. This week, Joe Mixon and Najee Harris combined for just about 30 points, which was much better than their usual totals. If they can continue to improve, the Tomozawas will be in a much better spot at RB. Their performances were just enough to offset clunkers from Gabe Davis and Buffalo's defense, who each scored zero. The biggest concern for them is Dallas Goedert's injury, which will cause him to miss an uncertain yet significant period of time. They do not have any backups, so they will need Pat Freiermuth to be healthy soon. Still, the Tomozawas have to be happy with the win, especially since Lamar Jackson scored just 11. For Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value, it has been a rough last four weeks, as they are now 1-3 over that stretch. Joe Burrow and Josh Jacobs started the season slowly, but they are now seeming locks for 20 points. Taysom Hill was also a great play at TE, as he scored 18. However, there were several letdowns for Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value that cost them the win. George Pickens struggled mightily on Thursday, scoring less than a point and expressing frustration with his team. Then, Kenny Walker struggled mightily, scoring just two points. Walker has cooled as of late, but this could be due to some poor games by Seattle. Lastly, Ja'Marr Chase suffered a back injury that will be worth monitoring, and he scored just 6. These performances sunk the team this week, and are causes for concern. But overall, the team is still in a good spot at 6-3.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 136.88
Quattrocento Desperados (Baseballteen9500) 99

Summary:
It was a convincing win for the Phantoms, who improved to 4-5. After a rough last few weeks, Tank Dell re-emerged to score 26 points, the team's highest total. Aside from Dell, the rest of the team was solid. Diontae Johnson impressed with 18.5 points and his first touchdown since 2021. He appears to have emerged as Kenny Pickett's #1 target, which makes him a good WR2 option. Saquon Barkley and Raheem Mostert also got their jobs done, combining for just under 30. The biggest red flag was Tony Pollard's performance. Pollard scored under 10 and has been demoted to flex. Pollard was drafted as an RB1, but his production has not matched that selection this year. Next week, the team is dealing with some bye weeks, which may make things difficult, so they are expected to be active in the trade market to solve this. It will be a tough road, but they can plausibly make the postseason. The Desperados lost their seventh game, which all but eliminates them. Injuries and bye weeks were costly, as David Montgomery, Deebo Samuel, and George Kittle were each unavailable. Still, Baker Mayfield and Austin Ekeler performed well, each scoring about 20. Adam Thielen took a bit of a step back, but he was locked down by Indy's defense. This also affected Jonathan Mingo, who managed to only score one point. While it is too late for the Desperados to make a playoff run, they can still play spolier to many teams' seasons.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 124.82
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 113.2

Summary:
After a miserable 0-4 start, the defending champion is now in a playoff spot and has the best chance of the 5-4/4-5 teams to make it to the postseason. As always, Josh Allen was their anchor, scoring 24.7 points. Cleveland's defense was also a crucial play, as their 24 points made a key difference in the outcome. Cole Kmet has been great with Tyson Bagent, as he scored 20.5 points on two touchdowns. Justin Fields should be returning soon, so it will be interesting to see if Kmet can keep up his production. Jonathan Taylor was the team's biggest X-Factor for a while, and he continues to see an increase in his workload. Cooper Kupp was also an X-Factor, but he has struggled since Matthew Stafford was injured. With Carson Wentz signed, it looks like Stafford will miss some more time, so Kupp's value may take a hit for a bit. Justin Jefferson is also nearing a return, which will almost certainly make the defending champion even scarier, especially considering Joshua Dobbs was not bad at all. With a trio of Kupp-Taylor-Jefferson, plus Josh Allen and Breece Hall, Team Griffith has to be the favorite to secure the fourth seed. For the Pickles, it was a bye-pocalypse, as Jahmyr Gibbs, Travis Etienne, Courtland Sutton, and Javonte Williams were all unavailable. It was a miracle, then, that they even had a slim chance to win. CJ Stroud was the reason for this, as he dropped a remarkable 41 points in one of the best performances by a rookie in recent NFL history. CeeDee Lamb has also been the league's best receiver for the last two weeks, as he scored over 20 once again. Aside from these two, though, the Pickles struggled. Their RBs were poor, combining for just 6 points. The biggest shocker came from Travis Kelce, who scored under 3. Had Kelce scored, say, 15 (a usual number for him), the Pickles would have pulled off a stunning victory. Instead, they fell to 6-3, but they have still most likely secured a postseason appearance.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 10 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 130.46
Quattrocento Desperados (Baseballteen9500) 137.32

Summary:
While the Desperados are guaranteed to finish under .500 this year, their roster is not as rough as the record looks. They have dealt with injuries all season, which has capped their upside. But this week, they saw the returns of George Kittle, Deebo Samuel, and David Montgomery. Each of these players scored touchdowns and impressed this week. Additionally, Austin Ekeler has returned to form after a slow recovery from injury, and scored just under 20. But their biggest move this week was trading DeAndre Hopkins for Brian Robinson. Without this trade, they would have lost this week, as Robinson outscored Hopkins by over 20. Now, with a RB trio of Ekeler, Montgomery, and Robinson, the team looks much better than it has in recent weeks. Their only head-scratcher came from Jahan Dotson, who scored no points and nearly cost his team the win. But the Desperados survived this, and are now a serious spoiler threat going forward. For One Man Revolution, it's been a terrible run of luck. In each of the last three weeks, they have scored over 130 points, yet they are 1-2 in that span. Injuries have plagued them all year, and another key injury was the difference-maker this week. Tee Higgins injured his hamstring in practice and missed the game. His replacement, Christian Watson, scored just 3 points. Had Higgins started, they may have won. Dak Prescott's legendary performance was wasted as Prescott covered up some holes in the roster. Christian McCaffrey was solid despite seeing his TD streak end. Ultimately, Monday night was devastating for One Man Revolution, as they needed 9 points from Tyler Bass, but he could only muster 2. Now, they must win out and have some results go their way to return to the postseason, which seems increasingly unlikely.

Calvin n The Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134) 116.06
iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 99.1

Summary:
After a strong 3-1 start, it has been a nightmare run of form for Calvin n the Chipmunks, but they recovered with a win over the league's best team. Amon-Ra St. Brown scored over 20 for the first time since Week 6, which powered his team to the win. Bijan Robinson, after some puzzling weeks, received greater opportunities this week and scored 17. Calvin n the Chipmunks have to be frustrated with Arthur Smith, as he has not used Robinson to his potential this season. Geno Smith was also strong, scoring 24. QB play has sunk the team in recent weeks, but Justin Fields will return in Week 11, which will put the team in a better position. After his strong start, namesake Calvin Ridley has been brutal in 2023, and he scored just 3 this week. His team was relying on a big year from him, but he has just not been able to produce. The win has to feel good, but Calvin n the Chipmunks will need to win out to have a chance at the postseason, and they will need to overcome a tiebreaker disadvantage. It was a schedule loss for iPump Plastic, as both the Eagles and Dolphins were on bye. This took out their dominant trio of Jalen Hurts, AJ Brown, and Tyreek Hill, which has been nearly 60-75 guaranteed points all year. Their replacements: Derek Carr, Jerry Jeudy, and Miles Sanders all underwhelmed. Had the Eagles and Dolphins been playing, it would have almost certainly been a win. As of now, the team's greatest concern, if any, is at RB. This week, Jerome Ford and D'Onta Foreman were strong, combining for over 30. If these two can score over 30 on a consistent basis, it will be difficult for any team to beat iPump Plastic. But with Deshaun Watson now out for the season, Jerome Ford's value may take a hit, along with Amari Cooper. Still, with their trio of Hurts, Brown, and Hill, iPump Plastic will be tough to beat.

Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 127.62
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 125.68

Summary:
Wesley All Stars were knocked out of a playoff position last week, but returned right back to where they were with a huge win in a tough matchup. After a quiet Monday night game against the Jets, Justin Herbert bounced back to score nearly 30 in a shootout against Detroit. T.J. Hockenson was also fantastic, scoring just under 25. There were concerns about Hockenson's production with Josh Dobbs at QB, but it appears these have been silenced. Antonio Gibson was a fill-in for Isiah Pacheco and D'Andre Swift, and he did not have high expectations. But he scored in double figures for the second consecutive week, including a late touchdown that was the difference maker in this one. With Pacheco and Swift on bye, Wesley All Star's expectations were lowered, but they came through with a major win. Now, going 2-1 in their next three should be enough for them to make the postseason. For Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value, alarm bells may be ringing. After starting 5-0, they have lost four out of their last five. If they win only one of their next three, they could miss the postseason due to a power rankings disadvantage. This one was an absolute heartbreaker, as Josh Jacobs fumbled late Sunday night, which was the singular difference in the game. Had he held on, Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value would have won by under a point. More positively, the Joe Burrow-Ja'Marr Chase stack has lived up to expectations in recent weeks, and they continued that by combining for 40 this week. Tyler Boyd also benefitted from Burrow's improved play and Tee Higgins' injury to score 15 points. Kenneth Walker, despite injury and usage concerns, scored just under 20. This core should keep the team competitive and put them in position to win 2 out of their next 3. It was a tough luck loss, and Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value is losing leeway, but they can still be thankful for their 5-0 start for keeping them in the playoff picture.

Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 97.02
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 110.38

Summary:
The Phantoms have come back strong the past few weeks, and are now just outside of a playoff spot with a solid power rankings spot. Heading into the week, they were not too confident in their odds, as they offered bye week players Raheem Mostert and Devonta Smith in order to be in a better position for this week. There were no takers, but this helped the Phantoms as they were able to win anyway. Sam Howell was a big reason why, as he scored over 20. It has been a tremendous season for Howell, who has put up QB1 numbers. Tank Dell has also been solid as of late, as he scored 15 this week. With Nico Collins returning, though, it will be interesting to see if he can maintain his production. The biggest positive for the Phantoms, though, was Jaylen Warren. Warren finally produced at a high level, scoring 18, and officially won the starting RB position from Najee Harris. With Warren seeming to be in line for more opportunities, the Phantoms' RB situation looks much better. As for their RB1 and RB2, the picture is bleaker. Tony Pollard has been one of the biggest fantasy disappointments of 2023, and Saquon Barkley's value will be capped with Tommy DeVito at QB. The Phantoms seem to be done with Pollard, so they will need Raheem Mostert to perform better despite De'Von Achane's impending return. Even with these concerns, the Phatoms have a legitimate shot at a postseason return. It was a rough loss for the Tomozawas, who are now one loss away from missing the playoffs for the first time. Starting Jared Goff over Lamar Jackson turned out to be a good move, as Goff outscored Jackson by 8. Additionally, the Mixon-Harris RB pairing has improved as of late, but with Najee Harris losing his starting position, this may not continue. Ultimately, though, their pass catchers cost them this win. Stefon Diggs was the most egregious, as he somehow scored just 5. Had he scored say, 20, the team would have won, but Diggs was dreadful. Terry McLaurin and Irv Smith also struggled, combining for just 6. The Tomozawas will have Pat Freiermuth and Nico Collins available going forward, each of whom will likely be better options. Overall, Stefon Diggs will have to be much better for the Tomozawas to return to the postseason.

Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 122.86
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 102.68

Summary:
For Mahomes on the Range, it appeared to be a tough matchup with Patrick Mahomes on bye. But Keenan Allen was generational, scoring a remarkable 35 points. With a 35 point showing from your WR2, it will be difficult to lose. Jordan Love was a solid fill-in for Mahomes, and he actually matched Mahomes' recent production by scoring 16. Brandon Aiyuk's return to the lineup helped, as Aiyuk scored 13. Garrett Wilson also looked solid despite the Jets' offensive woes, scoring 13. If there was one major issue with the team at the moment, it would be James Cook. Cook fumbled twice and was benched for a significant period of time, and finished with just 7 points. Buffalo seems to be a bit fed up with Cook for some reason, and this may affect his opportunities. With no other reliable RBs, Mahomes on the Range will need him to avoid the doghouse in Buffalo. Also, Aaron Jones was worse than he was in Week 9, but this was likely due to a tough matchup. At 5-5, Mahomes on the Range are just outside a playoff position, and can rely on their WR core of Allen and Wilson to get them there. Team Griffith saw their five-game winning streak snapped. Josh Allen fell down to Earth after a tremendous run, scoring just 14 this week. Mike Evans did all he could to carry his team, scoring 23, and Jonathan Taylor was solid once again. But this wasn't enough to overcome a relatively tough matchup. With Cooper Kupp on bye, the team traded for DeAndre Hopkins, who was a big part of their 2022 championship team. It appeared to be a good matchup for Hopkins on paper, but he scored just 4. Breece Hall also disappointed despite a favorable matchup, and Alexander Mattison left with an injury. Overall, Justin Jefferson remains the defending champion's biggest X-factor, as he may determine whether they return to the postseason.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 135.34
North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 74.6

Summary:
As it stands, the Pickles may be the league's best team. In the last three weeks, CeeDee Lamb has emerged as the league's best receiver, as he scored a remarkable 34 points this week. In addition, Jahmyr Gibbs was a tremendous trade addition. Gibbs was miserable to start the year, but since coming to the Pickles, he has become an RB1. This week, he scored 24. Javonte Williams has also emerged, finally living up to his rookie hype. He scored 19 this week, which added to the Pickles' cushion. C.J. Stroud, also acquired via trade, could make the case for league MVP, and he scored nearly 20 once again. The worst performances came from Travis Etienne, mostly due to gamescript, and Jonnu Smith. Of these, neither are concerning, as Travis Kelce was just on bye. The Pickles have to be the favorite to win the league at the moment thanks to some excellent trades, draft selections, and pick-ups. For the North Pole Narwhals, it was a disastrous week. In positive news, Alvin Kamara and Davante Adams improved. Adams appears to be much happier with Josh McDaniels gone, which should lead to a performance increase. Elijah Moore was also decent, but with Deshaun Watson now out for the season, his value will be capped. Aside from these three, it was brutal for the Narwhals. Derrick Henry scored a dreadful 2 points, and Trevor Lawrence scored the same. Henry has been good as of late, but he never got the chance to do much. For Lawrence, it has been a shockingly bad season fantasy-wise, as he is yet to hit the 20-point mark. James Conner made his anticpated return but scored just 7. Kyler Murray will take some of his rushing chances, but Conner should improve as he gets healthier. Still, at 4-6, it is going to be tough for the Narwhals to save their season, and one loss will eliminate them from contention.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 11 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 129.26
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 106.56

Summary:
After falling to the Desperados last week, One Man Revolution needed to win each of their last three games to have a shot at the postseason. They are 1/3 of the way there. It looked as though the week was going to be disastrous early sunday as De'Von Achane re-aggravated a pre-existing knee injury, which caused him to score just one point. But the team's other running backs- Christian McCaffrey, Rachaad White, and Devin Singletary- picked up the slack. The team has decided to build around RBs in each of the last three years, and this may be paying off this year. Also, DJ Moore looked as good as expected with Justin Fields returning, scoring just under 20. Ironically, Tyler Bass scored 17, so the team wishes he was able to do this last week, as they would be 6-5 if he did. As of now, the main concern is Jordan Addison, who has been forgettable since Kirk Cousins was injured. Also, with Kyren Williams set to return next week, they will have some tough lineup decisions to make, but that may be a good problem to have. For the Tomozawas, it was a strong start Thursday with Lamar Jackson and Joe Mixon combining for 42 points, but they tapered off Sunday. Najee Harris, after looking solid last week, was incredibly poor, scoring just 4. It looks like Harris was replaced completely by Jaylen Warren. Also, Stefon Diggs has been miserable in each of the last two weeks, but that can mostly be attributed to poor matchups versus Patrick Surtain and Sauce Gardner. Nico Collins was the only starter to score in double figures on Sunday, but even he was a bit underwhelming. At 4-7, the Tomozawas will likely miss the playoffs for the first time.

Calvin n the Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134) 106.36
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 102.22

Summary:
Calvin n the Chipmunks' season is still alive after a dramatic win. Late Sunday afternoon, they seemed to be in big trouble after trailing by 13. But Darrell Henderson scored a late rushing touchdown for the Rams, which bolted Calvin n the Chipmunks into a lead they would not give up. This turned out to be Henderson's swan song in LA as he was released shortly after the game. Luckily for Calvin n the Chipmunks, they will have Rhamondre Stevenson available to take his place. Justin Fields also impressed in his return from injury, scoring 21. But the most positive sign came from the team's bench, as Calvin Ridley scored 27. While the team may have been frustrated to bench Ridley, he appears to be in line for better production this season, as he has scored 20+ points in every game Zay Jones has started this year. With Matthew Stafford back, Puka Nacua also looked like he did in the beginning of the season. Now, at 5-6, Calvin n the Chipmunks has a shot to make the playoffs if they win out, which would erase the bad taste of a rough losing streak. Alarm bells have to be ringing for Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value, who are now at risk of missing the playoffs despite their 5-0 start. Kenneth Walker suffered an oblique injury that will likely cause him to miss time, and also cost the team this game. With Walker out, the team does not have a reliable RB2, which will put them in a rough spot. The team also lost Joe Burrow for the season, but it was a good call starting Brock Purdy over him this week. However, this means Ja'Marr Chase's value is going to be capped, unless Jake Browning can prove to be a solid option at QB. With a tough last two games coming up paired with major injuries, Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value has to be worried about their chances.

Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 125.84
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 119.46

Summary:
Wesley All Stars won a key victory in a tough win over the Phantoms. They were in a good position after Thursday as Gus Edwards scored a strong 20 points. Even though Keaton Mitchell has gotten some more playing time, Edwards still appears to be a dependable RB1. Overall, Wesley All Stars has a dependable RB room, as D'Andre Swift and Isiah Pacheco closed out the victory on Monday night with a combined 27 points. DK Metcalf, after a slow start to the year, has come on as of late with Tyler Lockett injured. This week, he scored just under 20. It was a bold call starting Josh Dobbs over Justin Herbert, and it cost the team just under 10 points, but this was not enough to cost them the victory. Even though Dobbs struggled against Denver, he has still been able to support TJ Hockenson, which is always a plus with a backup QB. Now, Wesley All Stars are one win away from securing a playoff spot in their debut season. Heading into the week, the Phantoms made a key trade, acquiring Kyler Murray and Javonte Williams for Tony Pollard. Murray was certainly worth the deal, as he scored just over 20 and appears to be a QB1 going forward. Javonte Williams struggled though, scoring just 6. But ultimately, an injury to Mark Andrews dealt a key blow to the Phantoms' chances. Had he stayed healthy, he probably would have scored over 6 to give his team the win. Now, he will miss an extended period of time, although his injury may not be season-ending. Diontae Johnson has also been bad, but Pittsburgh's OC change may revitalize him. Saquon Barkley, in contrast, had his best game of 2023, scoring a remarkable 28 points. Tank Dell was also incredible, scoring 24. If these two are consisently able to score over 20 in the next two weeks, the Phantoms could still make a run thanks to their power rankings advantage. The team also has Jaylen Warren available, and they would have won had they started him this week. The Phantoms will be tough to beat in these next two games.

Quattrocento Desperados (BaseballTeen9500) 114.06
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 101.1

Summary:
The Desperados are a much better team than their record indicates, and they won their second straight after a return to health. It was a solid team victory, as no one scored over 20, yet most of the roster performed well. Brian Robinson has proved to be a key acquisition, as he scored over 15 again this week. Also, George Kittle has been strong since returning from injury, and he scored just under 20. The same can be said for David Montgomery, who scored 16. Even Russell Wilson has bounced back from a poor 2022 and start to 2023. Wilson scored just under 15 this week. The only major disappointment this week was Austin Ekeler, who cooled off after three straight weeks of scoring around 20. While it may be too late for the Desperados to make the postseason, they still have a chance to finish with a decent record. Team Griffith dropped their second straight after a 5-game winning streak. Bye weeks and injuries killed them this week, as Michael Thomas, Jonathan Taylor, and Justin Jefferson were each unable to play. Additionally, Cooper Kupp left the game with an injury and scored just a point. These absences would be difficult for any team to overcome. Josh Allen and Breece Hall did all they could to offset these losses, combining for just under 40, but it was not enough for Team Griffith to win. Now, they must win out to have a shot at the playoffs, but they will not have Justin Jefferson for their last two games. If they cannot return to the postseason, it will be because of a brutal 0-4 start due to injuries and under-performances.

Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 119.78
North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 93.18

Summary:
Mahomes on the Range improved to 6-5 with a big win, altough it was spoiled somewhat. Keenan Allen has been tremendous this season, as he scored over 20 once again. Brandon Aiyuk was even better, scoring 24 thanks to a huge touchdown reception. Zay Flowers should have been even better, but he had a tocuhdown called back to a weak holding call. Had this not been called back, Mahomes on the Range would have been able to boast a WR trio that each scored over 15. But the worst part of the win was Aaron Jones' injury, which caused him to score just two points. Jones avoided serious injury, but he will miss Green Bay's Thanksgiving game against Detroit, which is also a pivotal game for Mahomes on the Range against iPump Plastic. Also, Garrett Wilson was shockingly bad, scoring less than zero. It will be a "what could have been" story for Wilson this year, as Aaron Rodgers' injury handicapped him all year. Going forward, the biggest question for Mahomes on the Range will be how they can replace Aaron Jones for the time-being, as they do not have a suitable RB2 available. For the Narwhals, the season is essentially over. They left Alvin Kamara in their lineup despite his bye week, which handicapped them. Trevor Lawrence was at his best, scoring 32, but it was not enough to overcome the rest of the team's struggles. Davante Adams was also solid, scoring 17. Josh McDaniels' departure has been a major positive for Adams this season. But it appears Derrick Henry's run as a dominant fantasy RB is over, as he scored under 5 this week. Now, the Narwhals will likely be looking to 2024 after their seventh loss.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 114.44
iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 101.6

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles cemented themselves as the #1 seed with a narrow victory. Jahmyr Gibbs was their leading scorer, and he has emerged as an RB1 ever since the Pickles acquired him. New acquisition Tony Pollard was also solid in a favorable matchup, scoring 16 and his first touchdown since Week 1. Courtland Sutton was also strong thanks to an impressive late TD grab. CJ Stroud cooled down a bit, but was still solid with 15. The same can be said for CeeDee Lamb, but a blowout probably prevented him from receiving more opportunities. If there was any concern for the Pickles, it may be with Travis Etienne, as he has scored just 12 points combined over the last two weeks, but this may just mean he is due for a blow-up game down the stretch. At 8-3, the Pickles have a playoff spot all but locked up, and appear to be the league's strongest roster. iPump Plastic lost their second straight in a worse performance than usual. Tyreek Hill was as good as ever despite an injury scare, scoring 25. Jalen Hurts was also as expected with 18. But AJ Brown, who is usually the team's third anchor, scored just 1. This made the difference in this one, as if Brown would have scored his usual 15+, they would have won. If Brown struggles, it will be tough for the team to overcome its weakness at RB, as Miles Sanders and Jerome Ford combined for just 15. Amari Cooper also struggled without Deshaun Watson, and it appears his value may be capped. This week showed that if you want to beat iPump Plastic, you will need one of Hurts, Hill, or Brown to struggle, which is never a guarantee. They should still be primed for a postseason return.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 12 RECAP

One Man Revolution (GoTwins24) 185.64
Wesley All Stars (Wesley) 85.2

Summary:
It was another must-win week for One Man Revolution, and they responded in a big way, scoring their most points in fantasy history. The game was pretty much wrapped up before Sunday, as the team scored nearly 100 points before the weekend thanks to big days from Dak Prescott, Christian McCaffrey, and Miami's defense. But their biggest performance came from Kyren Williams on Sunday, who scored just under 35 points in his return from injury. This was a major contrast to De'Von Achane's return from injury, and if Williams continues to play like he did on Sunday, he will be a top-5 RB going forward. Chris Olave also looked a lot better despite Derek Carr's return, but he suffered a concussion that knocked him out of the game early and may cause him to miss next week. DJ Moore has been much better since Justin Fields returned, and he scored over 15 this week. However, the major win was spoiled a bit with results elsewhere as Mahomes on the Range pulled off an incredible comeback versus iPump Plastic. Had iPump Plastic held on, One Man Revolution would just need to win next week to advance. Instead, they will need one of three underdogs to win as well, which may end their season. For Wesley All Stars, it was a week to forget, as it was over before it really even started. Detroit's defense set the tone for the week by losing a point, and DK Metcalf and Antonio Gibson failed to impact their respective games. There were still some positive performances- mainly from Isiah Pacheco, Michael Pittman, and TJ Hockenson. These three have been a reliable core for Wesley All Stars all season, and have gotten them to the position they are currently in. Josh Dobbs and Gus Edwards struggled- the former throwing four interceptions, and the latter only scoring four. Of the two, Dobbs is probably the most concerning as Minnesota has floated the possibility of benching Dobbs. Luckily for Wesley All Stars, they have Justin Herbert on the bench, and he is probably the best option going forward, even in spite of his struggles. A win versus Team Griffith next week will send Wesley All Stars to the playoffs in their inaugural season.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 134.64
Calvin n The Chipmunks (PhilliesFan134) 130.48

Summary:
The Phantoms needed a win to survive, and they did so in wild fashion. They got off to a great start Friday with Raheem Mostert scoring 21 points. Mostert has been strong in De'Von Achane's absence, and Achane's injury questions will likely mean Mostert should be a solid RB1 for the rest of the year. Tank Dell has been a great piece for the Phantoms this year, and he continued his good run of form by scoring 14. After a slow start, DeVonta Smith has come on as of late, and he scored 20 points (most of them late) that were crucial in leading the Phantoms to the win. Kyler Murray struggled early, but garbage time opportunities allowed him to score 20. The main disappointments for the Phantoms were RBs Saquon Barkley and Jaylen Warren, who scored just 5 each. This could have sunk the Phantoms, but other players picked up the slack. After appearing to be buried, the Phantoms will now need to beat the Pickles (albeit a tough task) and see some other results go their way to make the playoffs, but they have a solid power rankings tiebreaker advantage. Calvin n the Chipmunks saw their season end in heartbreaking fashion. They needed just 15 points from Justin Fields to win, but Fields failed to hit this target, fumbling twice in key situations. QB has caused issues for the team all year, and it finally led to their elimination. This wasted great outings from Bijan Robinson, Calvin Ridley, and Rhamondre Stevenson. Each of these three have looked great in recent weeks after slow starts, and Calvin n the Chipmunks will certainly lament that they were unable to get things going sooner. Amon-Ra St. Brown was solid, but Puka Nacua and Dalton Kincaid struggled. Now, they will look to play spoiler against One Man Revolution. They can still be proud of building a solid roster that fell just short.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 130.96
Teiyo Tomozawas (MUFFINZ) 114.58

Summary:
The defending champion has gone 6-2 since an ugly 0-4 start, and kept their season alive by snapping a two-game skid. Josh Allen has been the primary reason for the team's recent success, as he scored nearly 40 points this week. They will certainly miss Allen when he is on bye next week. Also, Jonathan Taylor and Mike Evans were strong this week, each scoring over 20. However, Taylor suffered a thumb injury that will cause him to miss multiple weeks. This is a devastating injury for Team Griffith, especially since Taylor has improved in recent weeks. The team will also be missing Josh Allen and Justin Jefferson due to bye weeks next week, which puts them in a tough spot in a must-win game. They may not be able to rely on Cooper Kupp, who scored just 3 this week. Kupp has been astonishingly poor ever since Week 6, as he is yet to score in double-digits ever since. He may have lost his spot in the starting lineup. Chuba Hubbard was good this week, scoring 17, and he may be the X-factor that can prevent Team Griffith from losing a must-win game. Still, the odds may be against them against Wesley All Stars next week. The Tomozawas will miss the playoffs for the first time in their three-year history in the league, and they lost the 2022 championship rematch. This week, everyone was solid, but there were no major standouts. When this happens, a team can expect to be around the 100-115 point range, which is exactly where the Tomozawas fell. Nico Collins was their scoring leader with just under 20. Najee Harris, Stefon Diggs, and Pat Freiermuth all hovered around the 15-point threshold, which was a positive sign after their struggles this season. Joe Mixon was a letdown after a solid showing in Week 11, and the team's special teams also failed to make an impact. Now, the Tomozawas will look to 2024 to make a playoff return.

Quattrocento Desperados (BaseballTeen9500) 89.96
North Pole Narwhals (AnthonyP) 89.92

Summary:
After a miserable 2-7 start, the Desperados have turned a corner, winning three straight including the game of the week this week. Deebo Samuel has been great for them since returning from injury, scoring just under 20 this week. David Montgomery has also been an extremely dependable option, scoring 15 once again. But special teams decided this game, as San Francisco's defense outscored Kansas City's defense by 13, which was the ultimate difference-maker. There were some miserable showings for the Desperados, mainly from Adam Thielen, Kyle Pitts, and George Kittle. The first of these was traded for Jordan Addison. Thielen started strong, but faded down the stretch after facing more double-teams. Austin Ekeler also struggled a bit this week, and there are concerns with his rushing ability and speed. Christian Watson was an interesting pickup for the team, and he awoke to score 17 this week. The team has four roster spots open, which is an interesting decision, but it will be interesting to see if they add any more players. They at first looked like the league's worst team, but after returning to health, they look much better. The Narwhals have faltered down the stretch, and lost their 8th game of the year. Derrick Henry has been one of the most inconsistent players in the league, and he scored 20 points this week. But he had a favorable matchup, so he should probably be considered a matchup-dependent option at this point. Aside from Henry, no one else was notable, except for maybe Jaylen Waddle and Alvin Kamara. Waddle's improvement is a good sign, and Kamara should be in line for a role increase with the Saints' WR injuries. Still, the Narwhals are eliminated from the playoffs, and will look to 2024 to contend.

Mahomes on the Range (Lancer) 116.42
iPump Plastic (iPumpPlastic) 115.1

Summary:
Mahomes on the Range won on a late comeback, putting themselves one win away from a guaranteed playoff berth. Their three MVPs on the week were Zay Flowers, Keenan Allen, and Cairo Santos. After Jalen Hurts' strong showing, it looked like Mahomes on the Range would lose. But Zay Flowers scored twice, including a late game-sealing TD. Then, Keenan Allen made some key late catches to set up Cairo Santos to be the hero. At first, Santos missed a 48-yarder, and Mahomes on the Range looked buried. But then Santos responded to hit 4 kicks and score 13 points, delivering a 1-point victory for Mahomes on the Range. It looked like they would be in a tough spot without Aaron Jones, but James Cook stepped up, scoring 13 to cover just 2 from Jamaal Williams. Patrick Mahomes was also better than he has been recently with 20 points. And even with Tim Boyle, Garrett Wilson was solid. If Rodgers had stayed healthy, Wilson probably would have been a top-5 WR. Now, Mahomes on the Range is a win away from making the playoffs in their debut season. After starting 7-2, iPump Plastic risks missing the playoffs. Jalen Hurts did all he could to prevent this, scoring 34, and it looked like this would carry the team to the win. Denver's defense was also strong with almost 20, and Tyreek Hill was as good as he has been all year. However, the team's RB woes sunk them this week, as Miles Sanders and Jerome Ford combined for just over 10, which isn't good enough. Also, Amari Cooper was injured, and had he stayed healthy, they likely would have won. Now, they risk missing the postseason, which would be devastating, but they are still favored to beat the Quattrocento Desperados to get in.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 128.86
Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value (Dishnet34) 100.78

Summary:
While other teams fight for a playoff berth, the Pickles can watch the chaos with comfort, having clinched the #1 seed with breathing room. C.J. Stroud has been one of the pickups of the season, and he scored 30 points yet again. Also, the Tony Pollard trade looks good, as Pollard scored just under 20. The Pickles' strategy has been to buy low on under-performing RBs, and it has worked out so far with Jahmyr Gibbs and Tony Pollard (although Gibbs had his worst game for the Pickles this week). CeeDee Lamb has been one of the most consistent WRs in the league, and his transcendence has co-incided with the Pickles' hot streak. As of now, the main concern for them is Travis Etienne, who has dropped off as of late, but he is still receiving top-tier volume. Their bench is also arguably the strongest in the league as they scored just under 70 points this week. As of now, the Pickles are the team to beat for the title, and if everything continues to go well, they can win their first championship since their Mahomes and Gurley led superteam in 2018. Alarm bells are ringing for Jahmyr Gibbs' Positional Value, who now risk missing the playoffs after starting 5-0. It was an okay performance this week, but not enough to beat the league's best. Josh Jacobs scored 20, and his team will certainly miss him in a must-win game next week. Sam LaPorta was also strong, scoring 15. However, the team has a lack of top-line talent that has cost them in recent weeks, especially with Joe Burrow and Kenny Walker injured. With Burrow out, Ja'Marr Chase scored just 10, and his value will be capped without Burrow. The team acquired Devin Singletary, which may patch their RB issues, but they had to give up George Pickens to get him, and they may not have the depth to step up. If they want to make the playoffs, they will need to first beat Mahomes on the Range and then hope for other favorable outcomes due to a tiebreaker disadvantage. As it stands, it could be a devastating conclusion for them.
