Week 8 Rankings



In this year's "SOMEBODY'S GOTTA WIN IT BOWL" we have The Nomads (2-5) vs. The Woodsmen (1-6).

#1  The Competitors (5-2)
Big test this week for The Competitors against #2 Mt. Warriors.  The Competitors have been the #1 throughout the entire season -- an impressive 7 week run.

#2  The Mt. Warriors (5-2)
The MTWs were involved in a blockbuster trade this week, sending star RB Giovanni Bernard to The Prospectors in exchange for Brandon Marshall, Fred Jackson and Pierre Garcon.  As a result, The MTWs have arguably the best WR core in the league with Demaryius Thomas and Brandon Marshall.

#3  Kurteous Bastards (5-2)
Could this be Kurt's year?  As we approach the second half of the season, The KBs are the surprise of the year (... the other surprise being The Woodsmen...).

#4  Prestige Worldwide (5-2)
Try to say Prestige Worldwide without echoing, WIDE WIDE WIDE.  It's impossible.  This RB core isn't sexy, but they are getting the job done.  Darren McFadden?!?!?

#5  DDW (4-3)
With so many teams sitting at 4-3 or 5-2, this week is going to provide some much needed separation.  I think The DDW emerge in the 2nd half of the season.

WEEK 7 RANKED TEAMS: Competitors Remain On Top

There are 7 teams sitting at 4-2!  Has The JFL experienced such parity!?!?!  With that parity comes a new take on this week's ranked teams...  At this point, I'm ranking rosters and total points scored.  Sure The Competitors have lost two straight, but at this point, he still has the best roster and is still leading the league in points scored.  I will say this, if he drops another one this week, I'll start to reconsider.

As I stated, #1 Competitors lost another game last week to the unlikely Centurions.  At 3-3 The Centurions are looking shrug off that Billy Beane moniker that has been haunting them for years.  However, this year's biggest draft gaff, Doug Martin, might keep ole' Billy on the outside looking in on this year's playoffs.  As for The Competitors, look for them to get back on track this week against against the struggling Nomads.

#2 Mt. Warriors are looking extremely good and it would really be a coin flip between MTW and COMPS as to who has the better roster.  The points and depth give The Competitors the edge in regards to Power Rankings, however MTWs have youth.  Also, I really like there recent trade, unloading Percy Harvin (who recently was traded away from the offensive minded Seahawks to the struggling Jets) and grabbing up Trent Richards.  Percy hasn't scored in double digits since week 1 (not that Trent is much better, but he is a goal line guy who has found the end zone in two of the last three games and will continue to benefit from an Andrew Luck offense.

#3 The Prospectors make a huge jump this week after posting back to back 100+ point performances.  It should also be noted that they have finally ditched Matt Stafford for Tom Brady.  The Prospectors are on a two game winning streak and #2 overall in total points scored.

#4 Kurteous Bastards had another strong showing last week against The Silverbacks.

#5 Worldwide and DDW are neck and neck -- this is just a matter of opinion... I like Wordwide's roster better - hard to argue with Peyton Manning.  However, it could be an entirely different story once Montee Ball returns to DDW's roster.

WEEK 6 RANKED TEAMS

#1 The Competitors
The Comps are leading the league in points scored and have arguably the best/deepest roster in the league.  With Drew Brees and Jimmy Graham on bye this week, The Comps could post their 2nd straight loss.  My bet?  #RomoProblems2014!  Even if they lose, I think they are still the favorite.

#2  Kurteous Bastards
Sneaky sneaky good team.  As long as KB doesn't do something crazy and trade away his players, I think the KBs could make their first playoff appearance.

#3  Mt. Warriors
The Mt. Warriors and The Competitors are my two favorite rosters.  I like Mt. Warriors a little better only because the long term keeper potential in Gio Bernard and Aaron Rodgers (I still kick myself for not keeping Bernard and going with Marshal).  Glad to see Mt. Warriors climbing the ranks.

#4  The Silverbacks
Last week was a reminder that this team is capable of laying a big fat turd on any given Sunday.  Still, at 4-1 this crafty Silverback will probably back his silverbackside right into the playoffs.

#5  Prestige Worldwide
PW put the league on notice last week when they posted a ridiculous 140 points.  The rankings made note and welcome to the Top 5 Prestige Worldwide.

WEEK 5 RANKED TEAMS

Son & Father Only Undefeateds Left!

1.  The Competitors (4-0)
To put things into perspective, The Competitors have scored 100 more points than over half of the league. This roster is so much better than the rest of the league it's scary.  It may be way too early, but I think The Comps will be in the JFL Championship.

2.  The Silverbacks (4-0)
Last week was a statement game for The Silverbacks -- they showed me and the rest of the league that they can put up 100+ points.  Even with injuries, The Silverbacks are undefeated and are the #2 in points scored.  If AP comes back (doubtful), The Silverbacks may be the only team that could legitimately take on the Competitors.  Knowshon will be back by week 8 which will give The Silverbacks depth down the stretch.

3.  The Kurteous Bastards (2-2)
The KBs are #3 in overall scoring.  If LeSean McCoy starts scoring again The KBs could be a serious contender.  Could be a trap game tomorrow against The Competitors.  Upset Alert, Upset Alert - The Competitors are on Upset Alert!

4.  The Nomads (2-2)
If Eddie Lacy is producing, this is a super dangerous team.  Mark Ingram could be back by Week 7 which would give The Nomads good support down the stretch.

5.  Mt. Warriors (2-2)
Don't sleep on The Mountain Warriors.  This has been my dark horse team all year and I'm glad to see them in the top 5.  Potentially the 2nd best roster in the league?  I think The Mt. Warriors beat The Nomads on Sunday.  PUT IT ON THE BOARD!  (Sorry Preston, probably jinxed you)

***THE UNRANKED TEAMS***


The Preseason #1 Woodsmen have yet to win a game...  Is this the week Josh finally gets off the schneid?

Money Ball.

WEEK 4 RANKED TEAMS

THE COMPETITORS ARE STILL THE TEAM TO BEAT

We 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.
