If you think the 2022 season has been exciting, the drama has been even greater in the world of high-stakes football. Our FFWC High-Stakes Recap: Week 5 dives deep into all the FFWC high-stakes action.
Let’s see how things are shaking out after five weeks of action.
FFWC World Championship
Week 5 of the FFWC X World Championship Tournament resulted in yet another massive overhaul to the overall standings. While not quite as busy as last week, when 12 new players joined the Top 20, the Week 5 leaderboard is populated by nine new players. Plus, we have a new overall leader for a third straight week.
Congratulations to Team Miss New Booty (5-0), as Oliver Dawoud racked up a massive 230.15 points and jumped from fourth into first place overall. His total points are even more impressive when you take a look at the FFWC ONLINE #8 player list. It’s stacked with heavy hitters, from top to bottom, including Kimra Schleicher, Chad Schroeder, and John Rozek, who are all FFWC Overall Champions.
Moving up seven spots, Team Detroit Broncos (3-2) posted 213.10 points and jumped from ninth into second place overall. That’s a reversal of fortune for Mark Roberts as his FFWC ONLINE #12 Crew dropped from second to ninth place following Week 4 action.
Slipping one position, Team Cocktails & Dreams III (4-1) posted 171.05 points and moved from second to third place overall. While no lead is safe, Chad Schroeder has a 73.95 lead in FFWC ONLINE #3 over FatStacks (4-1) Frankie Taddeo.
Another big mover, Team Ry’s Guys VI (5-0) jumped from eleventh into fourth place overall. As the lone remaining undefeated team in FFWC ONLINE #3, Patrick Sorge piled up 197.20 total points.
After falling from tenth to 21st overall, during Week 4, Team The Godfather STK (4-1) rebounded with a big leap and round out the current Top 5 positions. FFWC Vets, Jason Aberli and Matt Korn, went from scoring 146.7 points last week, to posting 206.05 points in FFWC ONLINE #25 during Week 5.
Reinforcing Yogi’s sentiments, it ain’t over till it’s over, six players moved into the Top 20 standings after sitting in 40th place or lower after Week 4 action. Of those, we give a special shout-out to Team “ZCRiley FFWC Kickoff” in FFWC ONLINE #1. Amy and Mark Palmer posted 225.30 points and made a massive leap, from 153rd to 12th, in the overall standings.
Chad was the only FFWC Owner with multiple squads (3) in the Top 20 last week. One of his teams slipped off the board this week. Instead, we have a new 3-TIMER as Evangelos Lilas now has three Top 20 teams. Does anyone else find it rather interesting to see FIVE “Same League” battles on the top 20 leaderboards?
While not as drastic as Week 4, when eleven new players entered the fray, the PlayerProfiler Championship Top 20 leaderboard has five new players on it this week.
A fantastic battle, at the top of the PPC overall standings, continues as TD’s N Beer 3 and PEACHO8 remain in the top two positions respectively. Kelly Wells posted 202.50 points in SLOW 7 while Michael Pietras recorded 174.60 points in PPC Red vs Blue #1. Kelly increased his lead from 11.00 to 38.90 points over Michael.
Making a big leap, The Deal No Deal Team 7 jumped from 42nd to third overall. Michael Foresta racked up 213.30 points during Week 5 action.
High Plains Drifter, managed Clint “Mr. White” Sloan moved from seventh to fourth overall after posting 171.75 points.
Jumping from eighth into fifth place, TheGreatGatsby PPC 13 registered 172.00 points. Ray Cowart continues his steady climb up the PPC Leaderboard as he went from tenth to eighth overall last week.
Ray also guided his TheGreatGatsby PPC 16 squad to a massive leap as he posted 222.65 points and moved from 176th to 18th overall. Team Zachb513 said “Hold My Beer Ray” as Zachary Barrett racked up 234.65 points and jumped from 235th to 20th overall.
After we had 20 different PPC Owners on the list last week, Ray Cowart and Michael Foresta both have two teams on the Top 20 leaderboard heading into Week 6.
FFWC X Dynasty Football World Championship
For the second week in a row, 20 different FFWC X Dynasty Football World Championship leagues are represented on the Top 20 Leaderboard. That includes five new teams on the Top 20 list.
The battle at the top rages on as Team Classic Wizard and Team Trailers retained the top two overall positions. Both teams had another solid week as Ben Foster racked up 217.95 points while Kris Wocks posted 214.50 points.
Team Pump Jack piled up the largest DFWC total during Week 5, as Jason Yeager recorded 229.40 points, and moved from sixth to third overall. Team Hooyah, also owned by Ben Foster, posted 202.00 points but slipped slightly from third to fourth overall.
Making a jump from ninth place, Team TURD V rounds out the Top 5 as Jon Mares posted 212.55 points. Team Filly Cheese V (Josh Filipek) racked up an impressive 220.05 and made the biggest leap into the Top 20 as he moved from 46th to 11th place overall.
Three DFWC owners have two teams on the Week 5 Top 20 leaderboard:
Ben Foster: Classic Wizard (1st) and Hooyah (4th)
Ray Flack: St Louis Gunners (8th) and Chicago Cardinals (18th)
Rob Fantauzzo: Sweep The Leg 54 (14th) and Sweep The Leg 52 (17th)
SuperFlex Bowl Tournament
Extremely popular, during its inaugural season, the SuperFlex Bowl Tournament continues to deliver non-stop entertainment. The race for the $5000 first-place prize, plus the SFB Championship Belt, is extremely close.
Changes, a 1971 David Bowie classic, is playing in the SFB background as 19 of the top 20 positions are occupied by a different team this week. We also have eight new squads on the top 20 leaderboards.
New to the FullTime Fantasy FFWC Family this season, Jack Kohlscheen moved from second to first place. His Kohlscheen SFB15 squad (SFB 17 SLOW) posted 188.30 points in Week 5. Overall, Jack’s lead is microscopic though.
FFWC and DFWC Vet, plus a member of the FTF World Championship Winner’s Club, Glenn Lowy moved from fourth to second place overall. Glenn is just 00.30 points behind MaxJack. His Glenneration X squad (SFB 8 SLOW) racked up 200.40 points during Week 5 action.
Also not far off the pace, Team FF Oracle owned by FTF veteran Matt Groth, posted 200.75 points. Matt moves from eleventh to third overall, and his SFB 8/21 squad is just 7.50 points out of first place.
Moving up one spot, from fifth to fourth, Team Its Likely I Win (SFB 8/22) is just 9.35 points off the pace. Our FTF 2022 Maui Madness Champ, Jeffrey Jurist, posted 192.45 points last week.
Slipping some, Team Moose Superknuckle 4 (SFB 14 SLOW) posted 171.00 points last week. Mark Sadler, an FFWC and DFWC Vet, dropped from first to fifth place overall. Still in the thick of the chase, Mark is just 13.20 points out of the top overall spot.
Entering Week 6 action, Billy Muzio (3 of 18), Jeffery Jurist (2 of 14), and Matt Groth (2 of 6) have multiple teams on the SFB Top 20 Leaderboard.
