We are now just one week away from awarding the Fantasy Football World Champion. Before we see if the current leaders can hold on, the FFWC High-Stakes Recap: Week 16 looks back at the penultimate week of this wild 2022 season.
FFWC World Championship
Two of the three 2022 Fantasy Football World Championship playoff rounds are now complete. For a second straight week, the standings changed dramatically. We have a new overall leader and 14 new teams entered the Top 30 Leaderboard. Plus, three new teams entered the Top 5 and just 25 points separate those squads.

Moving up eight spots, Zefurs (Online #23) jumped from tenth to second place. KJ Dukesherer posted 190.90 points, which was the highest WC Week 16 score. A rare feat, KJ activated a perfect lineup and his eleven starters all scored double-digit points.
Climbing two spots, Coyote Miscreants (Online #26) moved from fifth to third overall and sit just 7.09 points out of first place. The Mike Santos/Kurt Kuekes squad had three players crack the 30-point barrier and finished with 175.75 points.
