2 Feets In (5-0, 128.1 ppg) Last Rank: 1 ↔– Jacky G’s absurd hot streak from last year continues, and his team seems to only be getting stronger after 2 Feets In put together its strongest showing of 2018 so far in a Week 5 win over The Knights of Ren. Including his two victories in last year’s postseason, Jack has won his last 9 games, 13 of his last 14 and 17 of his last 19 games. To put that into perspective, since the expansion, only one other team has won more games in a row (Jay, 2010 Weeks 1-10), only one other team has won as many games in a 14 game span (Vaf, 2010 Week 10 – 2011 Week 8) and NO other team has won as many games in a 19 game span.
The Pecan Sandies(5-0, 121.5 ppg) Last Rank: 4 ↑– The Commish controls The League’s only other undefeated squad, and now holds a 2 game lead over Cody and Frank in The East. The Pecan Sandies have notched at least 125 points in each of the last two weeks and, along with Jack, have recorded The League’s first 5-0 start since Frank started the season with 5 straight Ws in 2015.
Lobster Beesk (4-1, 121.6 ppg) Last Rank: 5↑– Meade has yet to record a game of under 114 points this season, and the lone blemish on his resume is a tough loss to the reigning champ. This week, first round pick OBJ finally joined the end zone party as well. Lets see if he has the depth at RB to withstand the loss of Jay Ajayi.
The Demon (3-2, 126.8 ppg) Last Rank: 6↑– The surprise team of the early going is undoubtedly Vaf’s Demon squad, who have turned the preseason predictions on their heads and currently are second in The League in points scored on the season. In Week 4, Vaf exploded for 185 points, the second best single game output in League history. While he came back down to earth a bit in Week 5’s lost to Frank, he still notched another 120 point game, and has put up 4 110 point performances in the first 5 weeks as Melvin Gordon and Joe Mixon lead the way for what may quietly be The League’s best rushing attack.
So Much Honey (3-2, 121.3 ppg) Last Rank: 3 ↓ – Cody recorded his first dud of the season in Week 5, scoring only 87 points in a blowout loss to Lobster Beesk. It was only the first time this year So Much Honey failed to top 125 points in a contest, so it shouldn’t be much cause for concern. What does bear watching is Alvin Kamara’s usage now that Mark Ingram has returned from suspension, as The League’s number 1 back heading into this week had just 9 touches in Ingram’s debut.
Team Thanos (3-2, 120.2 ppg) Last Rank: 2 ↓– After a 3-0 start to the season, Team Thanos has now dropped 2 straight and sits in a tie with The Demon atop the West. While both losses were against as of yet unbeaten teams, the most recent loss to The Commish marked the first time Jay failed to hit triple digits in a game. With Drew Bree’s and Golden Tate on a bye this week, Team Thanos will need Zeke and company to right the ship against a desperate Bri Wyatt squad.
CAN YOU DIGG IT? (3-2, 117.0 ppg) Last Rank: 8↑– Back to back wins and 125 point showings from Frank have him right back in the mix after an up and down 1-2 start to the season. Julian Edelman’s return from suspension gives CAN YOU DIGG IT? another weapon in the arsenal as Frank waits on Leonard Fournette to finally return from injury. He has a potential statement game this week against Lobster Beesk.
The Knights of Ren (0-5, 121.5 ppg) Last Rank: 7 ↓– Olsen is just on an unprecedented streak of bad luck. Last season, only one game was lost where a team put up 120 points (the number is higher in previous years and scoring is up this year in general, but still). So far this year, Olsen has dropped 4 games where he scored 120+ points. The rest of The League has lost 5 such games combined. The Knights of Ren are in a deep hole, needing to win at the very least 6 of their last 8 games to have a shot at the postseason. Its an unfortunate start for a talented squad that currently ranks 3rd in The League in points scored.
The Wild Bunch (2-3, 100.9 ppg) Last Rank: 10↑– The Wild Bunch found a much needed punching bag in Week 5 and got back on the horse with a big win over Bri Wyatt. It wasn’t a flashy performance but, unlike his 120 point showing a week earlier, it produced a W. David Johnson seems to have found a groove and Sony Michel’s emergence could be just the spark The Wild Bunch needs as the sit only a game out of the division lead in the West.
Meat Mavens (1-4, 109.5 ppg) Last Rank: 12↑– Ant’s big trades after an 0-3 start finally paid dividends in the win column in Week 5, as he got a potentially season saving victory in a battle of winless teams. The Meat Mavens added firepower as a result of the trades is evident, putting up 131 and 115 points in the two games since. Tony has a chance to make a big statement this week by knocking off The Commish. If he doesn’t, he’s staring down the barrel of another year without a postseason win.
Bri Wyatt (1-4, 94.0 ppg) Last Rank: 9 ↓ – After giving Ant a taste of the Fitzmagic in their Week 3 victory, Bri Wyatt proceeded to drop each of the next two games in uncompetitive fashion. It’s only that lone win keeping BJC out of the Power Rankings cellar at this point. Bri Wyatt has failed to top 100 points in 3 of their first 5 games, and haven’t even reached 80 in either of the last two. Brian is refusing to listen to offers for LeVeon Bell, telling League owners that Bell is going down with the ship. Unless there’s a miraculous turnaround, that ship may be sunk before Bell even returns to action.
KerryOnMyWaywardSon (0-5, 104 ppg) Last Rank: 11 ↓ – No name change yet this week for Marky Mark’s squad, who hasn’t found a team name yet that could make up for a lackluster roster and questionable management and score the team it’s first victory of 2018. The talk around League circles is that Mark is strongly regretting taking Aaron Rodgers early in the draft, and team executives seem set to paint the superstar QB as the scapegoat for the dismal start. Whatever the actual reason for the winless start to the season, the clock is ticking on Mark’s playoff hopes, if it hasn’t already struck midnight.
