FFWC High-Stakes Recap: Week 2

Commish Roy looks back at Week 2 and breaks down which teams dominated in the first week of the Fantasy Football World Championships!


Week Two, of the 2023 Fulltime Fantasy Football season, is now complete. Changes were plentiful, and drastic, across our four tournaments. Here is a look at the Top 20 Leaderboards. The FFWC High-Stakes Recap: Week 2 catches you up on the leaderboards after a wild second week.

FFWC XI World Championship Tournament

In the race to the $150K Grand Prize, the FFWC XI World Championship Top 20 Overall Leaderboard is populated by 14 new teams this week.

We have a new overall leader as Team Just(in) Time (WC 4 SLOW) jumped from eighth to first place overall. Led by WR Keenan Allen (31.1), and WR Mike Evans (29.1), Simeon Yarbrough and Brian Marzorini had six of their 11 players post at least 20.7 Points. Their 199.85 points was good for the tenth-highest Week 2 total.

Team Meyer (WC 9/9 1 PM) moved from fifth to second overall. William Meyer was led by rising star WR Nacua Puka (30.1), unheralded RB Brian Robinson (28.9), and WR Justin Jefferson (26.9). Team Meyer received double-digit scoring from all of the players in his starting lineup.

Making a big jump, from 96th to third place overall, Cocktails and Dreams IV (WC 8/13 7 PM) piled up 219.85 points. With the massive total, Chad Schroeder now owns the current single-week high score. 

Another big mover, Team Gipson posted 207.10 points and jumped from 61st to fourth overall. Danny Gibson’s Week 2 lineup was led by QB Kirk Cousins (34.20), plus WR Keenan Allen and RB Brian Robinson. Danny has a 59.90-point lead in his WC 9/9 10 PM ET league.

Rounding out the Top Five, Chad added a second team to the Top 20 Leaderboard. Cocktails and Dreams XIII (WC 8/23 10 PM ET) racked up 191.65 points. That squad was led by QB Daniel Jones (34.05), and WR Mike Evans (29.10), plus RB Christian McCaffrey (22.5), and WR Deebo Samuel (22.10).

After no one reached the level last week, nine teams cracked the 200-point barrier during Week 2 action. That includes Danny Gipson, who had two of the top-five scoring squads (213.25 and 207.10) last week.

Our “Shout Out of the Week” goes to Mike Foresta who posted 213.50 points and moved his The Deal No Deal Team I from 504th to 48th overall. That’s proof that every week is a new beginning in Fantasy Football.

Circa Las Vegas Fantasy Championship

Our inaugural Circa LVFC Tournament is a very close race after Week 2. Heading into Week 3 action, the Top 5 teams are separated by just 6.00 points. We had a lot of changes, as there are 17 new teams on the Top 20 Leaderboard.

Week 2 was the Michael Schlissberg Show as he now has FIVE teams in the Top 13 overall. Mike’s Spartan Nation 2 squad (Circa LVFC 8/5 11:45 PM ET) posted 174.05 points and jumped from fourth to first overall.

The best was yet to come though, as his No Yellow Stickers 1 (Circa LVFC 7/12 10 PM ET) team posted a LVFC season-high 230.90 points. That squad moved from 350th to second place.

Mike followed that with a 210.30 total from his Mr. Yellow Stickers 1 (Circa LVFC 6/8 10:30 PM ET) team. That’s three different teams; all drafted in a different month, that own the Top 3 positions on the Circa LVFC Leaderboard.

Team Taylor enters the Top 5 as Charlie’s Circa LVFC 6/16 10:30 PM ET squad posted 193.85 points. That moved Charlie from 46th to fourth overall. Charlie took advantage of early drafting as his team was selected during the seventh online draft this season.

Rounding out the Top 5, MANKIND NATION moved from seventh to fifth place. Duke Viveros’ Circa LVFC 8/15 11:45 PM ET team posted 173.05 points. With a 180.73 two-week average, Duke sits just 6.00 points out of first overall.

After just one team cracked the 200-point barrier in Week 1, 17 squads topped that plateau during Week 2. Through two weeks, 253 of our 1056 LVFC teams sit with a 2-0-0 record. There are 20 different leagues represented on the Circa LVFC Top 20 Leaderboard.

Our “Shout Out of the Week” goes to Team Everything Must Go. Matthew Lyons Circa LVFC 8/4 11:45 PM ET squad racked up 227.90 points. That was the second-highest Week 2 total. Mathew moved from 825th to 25th overall. Yet another example of “it ain’t over – ‘til it’s over”. Keep Battling Everyone!

Dynasty World Championship Tournament

Continuing the week-over-week leaderboard shifts, across our four tournaments, there are 14 new teams on the DFWC Top 20 Leaderboard. That includes three of the Top 5 Week 1 leaders slipping out of the Top 20.

Racking up the fifth-highest Week 2 DFWC total, Team Mr. Two Thirty 33 is our new DFWC overall leader. Steve Moreau’s DFWC 33 Squad posted 209.40 points and now has a 31.65-point lead. With an impressive 203.65 two-week average – Steve moved from third to first place.

Moving up 24 positions, Team Ehuds Sword (DFWC 47) jumped from 26th to second overall. Brian Willey’s squad moved to 2-0-0 after posting 198.25 points in Week 2.

Larry Celeste made a big move as well, as his Hangry Fatkidz squad (DFWC 63) racked up 205.30 points. That was the tenth-highest Week 2 total and moved Larry from 42nd to third place overall.

Fourth and fifth place overall are now owned by Biplab Mandal. His DFWC 38 squad racked up 203.45 points and jumped from 38th to fourth place. Biplab’s DFWC 4 team posted 180.45 points and moved from 16th to fifth overall.

After just two Owners had multiple Top 20 teams last week, five moved in following Week 2 action. Three leagues have two teams on the Top 20 Leaderboard. 

Week 1 saw just one team crack the 200 barrier, but that changed as 15 squads posted at least 200.10 points during Week 2 action. 

Our “Shout Out of the Week” goes to Kyle Knapp who posted a new 2023 DFWC season-high 226.00 points.

SuperFlex Bowl Tournament

While there were changes, they were less prevalent during Week 2 of the SFB Tournament. Half of the Week 1 Top 20 leaders dropped off the board, as 10 new teams moved in.

We have a new leader, as Team Weiland jumped from seventh to first overall. After posting 190.35 points last week, Jim Weiland (SFB 32) followed up with 201.50 points in Week 2. All of Jim’s nine starters posted double-digit points – including six that scored at least 21.20 points.

In the most competitive league, across our four tournament formats, Brad Sutherlin piled up 207.50 points. Team Junction Boys jumped from 15th to second overall. Brad is just 2.35 points out first behind Jim in SFB 32, plus the overall SFB standings.

Continuing his impressive run, Joseph Tusa owns the third and fourth overall SFB positions. His BLUEDOG SFB 31 SLOW squad racked up a SFB season-high 220.65 points and jumped from 55th to third overall. That moves past the 210.60 season-high points BLUEDOG posted in SFB 41 SLOW during Week 1 action.

Slipping some, but still posting a solid total, Joseph’s BLUEDOG SFB 41 SLOW squad posted 171.10 points. While he dropped, from first to fourth, that team is just 9.70 points out of first overall.

Rounding out the top five, Team Fornof piled up 195.60 points. Rhett Fornof’s SFB 20 team moved from 13th to fifth place. In a tight race, that squad is just 12.30 points out of first overall.

After just three teams cracked the 200-point plateau during Week 1, 17 teams posted at least 200.45 points during Week 2 action. Joseph Tusa has three Top 20 teams, and Terry Reams (Arch Enemy) has two. 

Our “Shout Out of the Week” goes to Terry, as his SFB 14 squad piled up 213.45 points and moved from 165th to 15th overall.
