The Projected Playoff Bracket:

Combining total points scored and overall record, the ESPN projected playoff bracket is very close to what our top 5 rankings show this week.

1.  The Competitors
A truly historic season so far for The Comps - never before have we seen a team so dominant in the regular season.

2.  Kurteous Bastards
Kurt and Scott have far and away the two strongest teams this year.  With a win today, the KBs could effectively ruin repeat hope of our last year's champ, The Nomads.

3.  Worldwide
This team is gonna get a whole lot stronger when Josh Gordon returns.

4.  DDW
DDW made a trade with the Cant's this week and added Marshawn Lynch to his backfield...  Just in time to play the broken down Prospectors - thanks a lot.

5.  The Prospectors
The Prospectors are hurting this week... With byes for Brady and Edelman/Bernard injured, I'm forecasting a loss today against #4 DDW.  I hope I can score more than 60 points.

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.

#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.
