THE COMPETITORS ARE STILL THE TEAM TO BEATWe are trying something new this week. The Top 5 teams will be ranked and the remaining teams will be considered unranked.
1. The Competitors (3-0)
Leading the league with total points scored and arguably the best roster in the league. If I had to put money on one team to make a playoff run it would be The Competitors.
2. The DDW (2-1)
Cody's team has scored the 2nd most points and while I don't think the DDW have the strongest roster in the league, I think they are going to be a tough out for The Comps today.
3. The Prospectors (2-1)
The Prospectors are the 3rd in total points (are you noticing a trend here?) -- I think the long term success of this team depends on Matt Stafford. He's on a short leash and if he fails to show up today he could be headed for free agency.
4. The Nomads (2-1)
The defending champs also have their fair share of questions -- is Eddie Lacy the new Trent Richardson? With injuries mounting (Ingram, Ryan Matthews), I have my concerns if this team is going to be capable of putting up points.
5. The Silverbacks (3-0)
At some point you can't ignore the word "undefeated." While they aren't pretty (they are outside the top 5 in points scored) and they certainly aren't young... The Silverbacks know how to win. With no AP, I have my concerns long term for this team, but the old man knows how to grind it out.
