Week 10 OPR Rankings / Notes


  • Jay continues to chug along at a historically elite pace, racking up his 8th straight 125+ point game. If he ended the season at his current OPR, it would be good for 6th all-time. Interestingly enough, 3 of the 5 teams ahead of him failed to bring home the title, while 5 of the 6 teams immediately below him won the trophy.
  • Meade takes the rare OPR drop in a victory, but it’s only a slight one. Shaun has now one three straight, and stands on the precipice of locking up a playoff berth, a division title, and a first round bye with a win this week.
  • Our biggest leap of the week, by far, goes to the Notorious BJC. Brian’s 187 point outburst was responsible for a 12.5 point jump in his OPR, pushing him from 5th overall to 3rd overall in the OPR ranks. We discussed where Brian’s week 10 performance ranks in the history of The League earlier, but its worth repeating: this was the second largest single week output in the League’s 17 year history, even adjusting for era, as well as the second largest margin of victory.
  • Mark survived a wild Monday night matchup with a win, holding steady in OPR and in the overall standings. Its clear though that Mark’s team has fallen off quite a bit from the historic pace he was setting through the first 6 weeks. Over the last 4 games, Mark has seen his OPR take a nearly 20 point dive, as he has been lucky to go 2-2 over a stretch in which he only topped 100 points once. We know what this team is capable of, but can it get back to that championship level?
  • Another week, another heartbreak for Vaf, who nearly managed to hold on despite Chris Carson working overtime to defeat him this past Monday. Vaf is second in The League in points scored, but sits 9th in the standings, and the OPR formula just decided to split the difference and slot him in at 5th.
  • The Commish picked up a huge win for his playoff hopes, raising his OPR over 3.6 points and leaping over Frank and Jack to slot in at 6th in the ranks, which is where he currently stands in the playoff picture. With a 3 way tie atop the East heading into the last round of the divisional stretch, things figure to get real interesting.
  • After a 5 game win streak pushed him into a tie for The League’s best record after 7 weeks, Frank has now dropped 3 straight and would be on the outside looking in at the playoffs if the season ended today. The season, however, does not end today, and Frank The Tank remains very much in the playoff mix, playing two of teams ahead of him in the postseason picture. First up: a pivotal date with Lobster Beesk.
  • If the last two weeks conjured up scary images of the 2 Feels In squad of the past two years, last week offered a little bit of relief, as Jack failed to push his winning streak to 3 and couldn’t move into sole possession of first in the East. As a result, he suffered the biggest OPR drop of the week, losing 3.15 points and falling to 8th in the ranks. He still paces the field in the East because of his crucial possession of the division record tiebreaker.
  • In Week 10 Diesel told his totally legal, totally cool Asian masseuse to keep on rubbing and tugging, he’s not out honey just yet. Keeping his season live with a thrilling last second victory over Vaf, Cody jumped 3 points in his OPR and pulled to within one game of a playoff spot, keeping his title defense dreams alive and well for at least another week,
  • Big Tony’s baby luck wasn’t enough to defeat Scoops Ahoy this week, even though he topped 120 points for the first time since Week 1. A crucial matchup with long-time rival Commish looms.
  • Another week, another loss for Ry O, his fifth straight. His playoff hopes all but gone, his season now likely turns toward playing spoiler and positioning himself to avoid the Anthem Bowl.
  • Nick’s tough season may have hit its lowest point last week, where he suffered a 119 point defeat, dropping him to a season-low 103.7 OPR. The good news is he seems to be safe from this being a historically bad season. The bad news is, like Olsen, it looks like he’s down to playing spoiler for the rest of the year at 3-7.
