After a brief hiatus from the Power Rankings thanks to vacation and Stranger Things, I am back. Some of the league member(s) started “chirping” about my hiatus and how I put gifs in and never change up the rankings. Well, if you know how to blog and have a .500 record, you can do the rankings your way but until then, you wait patiently. More importantly, I have a newsflash: This is a CLOSE race.
It’s actually one of the closer races I’ve been apart of in fantasy. 7 teams have a legitimate shot at the playoffs (Sorry Sisi). 4 games left before the playoffs. 4 spots total. Let the games begin.
1. Can’t Lose Again – DG
From 6-0 to 6-3 in the blink of an eye. Bad weeks and horrible managing by me cost me those 3 games. Credit to the guys that played me though. They had to win to gain ground and that’s exactly what they did. Also, I’m 6-0 when I wrote power rankings. 0-3 when I didn’t post them. You do the math. Need a win desperately or this league will be a shitshow.
2. Carton’s Scalpers – Luke from Ain’t No Daisy
Ticket sales are booming for Carton’s Scalpers. As the leading scorer of the league, Luke has earned his 2nd place spot. However, have you seen this man’s schedule? This is how Luke is 5-4: W, L, W, L, W, L, W, L, W. Amazing. You could say he’s inconsistent, but then again, you could say he’s consistent because he does the same thing all season. The more you know.
3. Golden Tate Warriors – LordTreeSap
Michaellllllll no. Big Mike has put together a nice stretch of games, winning 3 out of the last 4. HUGE division game against yours truly this week. Will he step up to the plate or choke like Mike Francesa with a cough drop?
4. The Moon’s DowntownBonanza – Nick from Ain’t No Daisy
I swear this is the most inconsistent league ever. Nick is on a roller coaster ride. Starts off 3-1. Then he loses 3 straight to go to 3-4. Now, he’s rattled off two monster wins in a row to get him back in the mix. With Sisi on the schedule, this team might be going uptown after Monday night.
5. XO Ball Life – Producer Jim
Nothing, and I mean NOTHING, would make me happier to put this man in last place and you can definitely make the argument he can be in 7th. However, the “what have you done for me recently” trend puts Jimbob at 5th despite having 4 wins. He’s won 4 out of his last 5. From the outhouse to the penthou…not at the penthouse yet my friend, but definitely an admirable turn around from the beginning.
6. Ya Moms Sunday Sauce is Ragu – Tommy G
Another “what have you done for me recently” guy. Despite a hiccup last week, Tom has won 3 out of the last 5 to put himself in the contention. Plus, he almost beat Enrique by 100 points 2 weeks ago so if this team gets hot, watch out.
7. JakePaul Team 10 – Eric The TV Watcher
Sorry Enrique, but this is a big fall from grace. Yes, you have 5 wins and that’s more than the two people in front of you, but losing 4 out of 6 and only scoring over 100 points once during that stretch is why you are towards the bottom. Fantasy is brutal, but it also can be your friend. Plus, you still are in the playoffs if the season ended today. You just need a victory badly.
8. Boston TE Party – Sisi
You beat me so that’s something to be proud of this year.
