Dynasty World Championship Tournament

With our Week 2 leader as the lone exception, every position on the DFWC Top 20 Leaderboard changed following Week 3 action. That includes eleven new teams moving into the Top 20 overall standings.

After posting 209.40 points last week, Team Mr. Two Thirty 33 surpassed that with 238.55 points during Week 3 action. That is the third most single-week points scored through the first three weeks of DFWC action. Including WR Keenan Allen (45.95), and RB Raheem Mostert (45.20), ten of Steve Moreau’s eleven players posted double-digit points. Steve pushed his overall lead from 31.65 to 50.10 points.

Rounding out the Top 5, Team Ehuds Sword slipped slightly; from second to fifth place overall. The slip is largely due to the massive points scored above him, as Brian Willey’s DFWC 47 squad racked up an impressive 198.85 points during Week 3 action. 

After 15 squads posted at least 200 points, during Week 2 action, 50 teams topped that plateau this week. 19 of the current top 20 DFWC weekly high totals were posted during Week 3. Following the first week of head-to-head battles, 169 of the 924 DFWC teams have a perfect 3-0-0 record.

SuperFlex Bowl Tournament

The overall leaderboard shifted considerably in the SFB Tournament as well. The Top 20 has 13 new teams, and eight of the top 10 teams are also new. The SFB Tournament continues to be the tightest race of our four tournaments.

For the third straight week, we have a new overall SFB leader. That position is now owned by Team Operation RayEpps. Ryan Kina’s SFB 38 squad racked up 246.20 points and jumped from 48th place to first overall. That impressive total is a new SFB weekly high score, as it tops the 220.65 points posted in Week 2 by Team BLUEDOG.

After 17 teams posted at least 200 points during Week 2 action, 37 squads reached that plateau during Week 3 action. Overall, 16 of the current 20 SFB weekly high scores were posted during Week 3 action.

Our “Shout Out of the Week” goes to Mike Cagle who now owns the second-highest SFB single week score. Mike’s Mack Attack 8 (SFB 25 SLOW) squad piled up 241.65 points and moved from 149th to 11th overall.
