We are now into double-digit weeks of the 2022 football season. But, things are just starting to heat up in the world of high-stakes leagues. Our FFWC High-Stakes Recap: Week 9 dives deep into all the FFWC high-stakes action.
Let’s see how things are shaking out after nine weeks of action.
FFWC World Championship
Following a wild Week 8 Fantasy Football World Championship scoring spree, when 77745.30 points were posted, the numbers tailed off as 68228.45 points were scored in Week 9. Just 18 teams (down from 65) cracked the 180-point barrier and just four (down from 17) posted at least 200 points. The top two leaders remained in place, and a season-low four new players entered the Top 20 Leaderboard.
Cocktails & Dreams III (8-1 FFWC #3) retained first place, for a third straight week, as Chad Schroeder racked up 174.25 points. That pushed his overall lead, from 34.30 in Week 8, to 61.80 points following Week 9 action.
A week after piling up an FFWC X season-high 264.65 points, Bluffing Rivers-2 posted 146.75 points in Week 9. It wasn’t all bad news for Billy Muzio, as he moved to 8-1 and his lead in FFWC #2 sits at 179.10 points.
Moving up six spots, our 2021 FFWC Champion Abe Prowse jumped from ninth into third place overall. Team Mesalex (7-2) racked up 198.50 points and moved from 59.45 to just 11.05 points out of second place.
Climbing back into the Top 5, ZCRiley FFWC Kickoff (8-1) moved from sixth into fourth place. Amy and Mark Palmer posted 153.90 points. That was good enough to regain the top spot over Ruthless 1 (6-3) in the very competitive FFWC #1 league.
Rounding out the Top 5, Miss New Booty (8-1) slipped from fourth into fifth place after posting 143.80 points. Oliver Dawoud saw his lead in FFWC #8 slip to 44.00 points over Charles McHaffie. Team HEMPER FI (8-1) jumped from 63rd to 20th overall after piling up 196.35 points in that league.
Our FFWC X Shout Out of the Week goes to Team Shocker 1 (7-2) who racked up a Week 9 high 234.75 points. That moved Jason Conn’s FFWC #17 squad from 106th to 16th overall.
Fairways & Greens WC IV (FFWC #15) and The Godfather (FFWC SLOW #2), remain undefeated with a 9-0 record. After 18 teams entered Week 9 at 7-1, ten head into Week 10 with an 8-1 record
“Shake It Up” was the mantra during Week 9 of the Player Profiler Championship Tournament as changes were plentiful up and down the leaderboard. For a second straight week, the top nine positions changed and we have new first- and second-place teams. There are also six new teams on the Top 20 list.
Bouncing around the top nine, during the previous four weeks, The Deal No Deal Team 7 (7-2) is the new overall PPC Tournament leader. Michael Foresta guided his PPC 9/10 9 PM ET squad to 187.65 points and owns a slim 9.05-point lead.
Moving up 12 spots, Team Anderson (6-3) jumped from 14th into second place. Michael Anderson’s PPC 9/7 9 PM ET crew piled up 195.25 points, which was the 11th highest Week 9 PPC total. Four teams are 6-3 in that league but Michael is first overall with a 152.00-point lead.
Dropping two spots, Analytics Are For The Deep End (7-2) slipped from first into third place. The good news is Louis Gott won his Week 9 matchup, with 156.65 points, and he leads the PPC 6/11 10 PM ET league by 46.55 points.
Entering the Top 20, Team ZCR PPC 13 (6-3) made a big jump from 23rd to fourth place. Amy and Mark Palmer (PPC 8/5 10 PM ET) posted 201.45 points, which was the fifth-highest Week 9 PPC total.
Rounding out the Top 5, TheGreatGatsby PPC 13 (8-1) jumped from 13th to fifth place overall. After posting 125.05 points in Week 8, Ray Cowart’s PPC 8/5 11:45 PM ET crew rebounded with 178.30 points in Week 9.
Our PPC Shout Out of the Week goes to Roc Frost, once again this week, as he now has three squads in the Top 20. Roc also moved his FOX FILER team from 423rd to 176th with a Week 9 PPC high of 213.50 points. Michael Foresta, Clint Stone, plus Amy and Mark Palmer, each has two Top 20 teams.
Through nine weeks, Team Mitchell1 and High Plains Drifter are the only teams with a 9-0 record. There are 23 one-loss teams (down from 35) that head into Week 10 with an 8-1 record.
FFWC X Dynasty Football World Championship
For a sixth straight week, 20 different Dynasty Football World Championship 2022 Leagues are represented on the Top 20 Leaderboard. Three new teams joined the Top 20 list, and seven of the Top 20 teams posted at least 209.05 points during Week 9 action.
Continuing on his dominating DFWC 2022 roll, Classic Wizard (8-1) retained first overall for the ninth straight week. Ben Foster’s DFWC 21 squad posted 161.15 points and his overall lead nudged up slightly from 84.95 to 86.95 points.
Keeping pace, team Trailers (8-1) retained second overall for a second straight week. Kris Wocks’ crew posted 159.15 points and his lead in DFWC 1 went from 157.95 to 181.45 points.

Slipping one spot, Ben Foster’s team Hooyah posted 164.45 points and dropped from third into fourth place. Team Hooyah also moved to 8-1 and their lead ballooned from 218.70 to 276.80 points in DFWC 73.
Rounding out the top five, St. Louis Gunners (8-1) made a big leap from 14th to fifth overall. The Godfather of Orphans, Ray Flack, piled up 226.75 points. That was the fourth-highest Week 9 DFWC total.
Our DFWC Shout Out of the Week goes to the Team of Deztiny in DFWC 49. Tony Ryan’s squad racked up a DFWC Week 9 high 238.65 points and moved from 45th to 16th overall.
Heading into Week 10 action, there are nine teams (down from 14) with a perfect 9-0 record. For a second straight week – none of them are on the Top 20 list. Another 72 squads (down from 81) have an 8-1 record, and 13 of those teams are in the Top 20.
SuperFlex Bowl Tournament
For the first time this season, the Top 5 Superflex Bowl players all remained in the Top 5, though they did move around somewhat. Our Week 8 overall leader retained the top perch in Week 9, but the lead is now microscopic. A few players made some big jumps, as seven new teams joined the Top 20 Leaderboard.
Team Maloney (SFB 2 SLOW) stumbled somewhat during last week’s action. Although he posted just 127.00 points, Jim Maloney held on to first overall for a second straight week. That’s the good news. The not-so-good news is his lead shrunk from 29.90 to just 0.70 points over MaxJack.
Moving up two spots, from fourth to second, Kohlscheen SFB15 (SFB 17 SLOW) scored 159.50 points. Jack Kohlscheen received a nice bonus during Week 9 as QB Baker Mayfield replaced an ineffective PJ Walker. Mayfield posted 15.75 points during the second half against the Bengals.
Maintaining third place overall, for a second straight week, Moose Superknuckle 4 (SFB 14 SLOW) posted 146.00 points. Mark Sadler’s squad went from 27.15 off the lead to just 8.15 points out of the top spot.
Slipping two spots, from second into fourth place, Glenneration X posted 146.90 points. Despite the drop, Glenn Lowy’s SFB 8 Slow squad went from being 26.90 points off the pace to just 11.00 points out of first place.
Rounding out the Top 5, team Its Likely I Win (SFB 8/22) retained fifth overall for a second straight week. Jeffrey Jurist posted 138.05 points and sits 35.85 points out of first place.
Our SFB Shout Out of the Week goes to Da Godfather in SFB 18 SLOW. Kevin Vobeyda racked up an SFB Week 9 high 209.95 points and jumped from 33rd to seventh overall. A second Shout Out goes to Marcus Aurelius in SFB 9 SLOW. Matthew Lecomte’s team posted 207.50 points, the second most during SFB Week 9 action, and moved from 60th to 19th overall.
After we had two same-league battles in the Week 8 Top 20, there are now four after the dust settled on Week 9. All four of those battles are very close. That includes SFB 6 SLOW, where just 0.60 points separate the top two players.
Good Luck in Week 10 Everyone!
