Approaching the half-mile pole, of the 2023 Fulltime Fantasy Football regular season, Week 6 is now in the books. Despite just two teams being on a BYE, plus reflecting the 11-3 record that UNDER game total bets posted, we had our lowest scoring week since Week 1. As a result, the FFWC High-Stakes Recap: Week 6 reviews the many changes.
Here is a look at the Top 20 Leaderboards across the four Major FTF Tournaments.
For the first time this season, the top three teams remain unchanged in the race to claim the $150K FFWC XI Grand Prize. Seven new teams joined the FTF World Championship Top 20 Leaderboard following Week 6 action.
Rolling along, Team Just(in) Time (5-1) continues as the FFWC XI overall leader for a fifth straight week. Simeon Yarbrough and Brian Marzorini regained their early-season form as they posted 190.45 points. That was the fourth-highest Week 6 WC total and increased their lead from 21.30 to 27.40 points.
Mr Yellow Stickers (5-1) remains in second place overall for the second straight week. Racking up another big total, Mike Schlissberg’s WC Circa Hybrid squad scored 184.35 points. That was the 11th-highest Week 6 WC score. Mike increased his second-place lead from 0.25 to 42.15 points.
Team Zefurs IV (5-1) fell from the unbeaten ranks but was still able to retain third place overall. Let down by his dynamic Kittle/LaPorta TE duo, who scored 8.7 combined points, KJ Duke’s squad posted 142.45 points. The good news is that Zefurs IV still leads the WC 9/3 9 PM ET league by 83.45 points.
Moving up one position, Team Schinker jumped from fifth to fourth overall. Chris Schinker’s squad posted 166.90 points during Week 6 action. Consistency is key to making the playoffs, and Team Schinker is averaging 169.61 points per week. The 2022 FFWC X overall leader, after 14 weeks last season, averaged 167.47 points per week.
Making a big jump, Team Honeycutt moved from 30th overall to fifth. Steve Honeycutt‘s FFWC Online 8/22 9 PM ET squad posted 182.60 points. Steve’s team was sitting 208th, after Week 2 action, but has steadily climbed the leaderboard by averaging 178.68 points over the past four weeks.
Our FFWC XI “Shout Out of the Week” goes to Team Mr O. Brian Schrieber’s FFWC SLOW 1 squad scored a Week 6 high 194.10 points. Every move has to start somewhere, and Brian’s squad jumped from 480th to 273rd overall. He also moved to within 56.54 points of the fourth playoff qualifying position in his league.
For the first time since Week 1, no team reached the 200-point plateau. Down from 30 teams, that had a 5-0 record after Week 5 action, just 17 FFWC XI squads still own a perfect 6-0 record. Only three of those teams are in the current Top 20 overall.
Week 6, during FFWC X action last year, was similar to this season on a few levels. That includes it being a low-scoring week, plus exactly five WC teams reached the 1,000-point plateau.
We also sent out this modified heads-up: Navigating injuries, plus BYE weeks, is challenging for everyone. On the injury front, some have been more fortunate than others. That said, every team is looking to add new weapons. Bid wisely, during the first Week 7 FAAB waiver run at 11:00 PM ET on Wednesday, 10/18/23.
Teams on a Week 7 BYE: Bengals, Cowboys, Titans, Jets, Panthers, and Texans.
Scoring also dropped in our inaugural FullTime Fantasy Circa LVFC Tournament. After Owners in the Top 20 scored 3638.50 combined points during Week 5, that number dropped to 3245.60 (-392.90) during Week 6 action. Setting a season-low, just five new teams entered the Top 20 list.
For the sixth straight week, we have a new FTF Circa LVFC leader as Team 2 Bros DP (5-1) moved from second to first overall. Robert Dinges followed his 196.4 Week 5 outburst with 194.0 points. That is the fourth-highest Week 6 total. Robert now leads the Circa LVFC SLOW 5 league by 193.6 points.
Slipping one position, Team LOB dropped from first to second overall. Mark Deming’s Circa LVFC 7/16 10:00 PM ET squad posted 162.55 points. Mark’s squad still managed to move to 6-0 and sits just 8.6 points out of the top spot.
Team Leave It In (4-2) jumped into fourth to third place overall. Mike Moore and Michael Scherneck’s Circa LVFC 9/6 10 PM ET squad posted 192.8 points. With 182.85 as the low, scored back in Week 3, that team has now averaged 188.57 points over the last five weeks. That’s a great recovery after posting 125.30 points in Week 1.
Moving down one position, Team Miller slipped from third to fourth place. Jason Miller’s squad posted 154.35 points and has now spent the last four weeks in the LVFC top six overall. Team Miller moved to 6-0 and leads the Circa LVFC 8/27 5 PM ET league by 136.50 points.
Entering the Top 5, for the first time this season, The Godfather jumped from eighth to fifth place overall. Tony Colavita’s Circa LVFC 5/27 10:30 PM ET team posted 161.61 points and now has a 5-1 record. This team is a perfect example of “never quit grinding” as Tony was 666th overall after Week 1 action.
Our FTF Circa LVFC “Shout Out of the Week” is split between Team Ronis (207.80), Dingos Dreamteam SLOW II (205.45), and Jax Car Salesman (200.55), who were the only players to top 200 points this week.
Three teams topping 200 points is down from 20 teams last week. After 40 teams entered Week 5 with a perfect 5-0 record, just 22 of the 1,056 Circa LVFC teams are still undefeated.
After Matthew Lyons was the only Owner with two Top 20 teams last week, Sean Cruzen joined him this week. One of Sean’s squads jumped from 23rd to tenth, while the other moved from 26th to 15th overall.
The DFWC Top 20 Leaderboard looks familiar as four teams retained a top five position. That includes the top two overall leaders. Six new teams moved into the Top 20 standings and 20 different leagues are represented for the second week in a row.
After losing WR Justin Jefferson to injury, and immediately trading him in a deal that brought in WR A.J. Brown, Classic Wizard (6-0) retained the top spot for the second straight week. Ben Forsters’ DFWC 21 squad racked up 184.65 points during Week 6 action. With 171.0 points (Week 1) as a season-low score, Classic Wizard (6-0) is averaging an impressive 187.7 points per week.

Rob’s crew is averaging 186.48 points per week and sits just 7.20 points behind Classic Wizard. That’s the closest battle for first place across our four tournaments.

Biplab is 41.65 points out of first overall and leads his DFWC 4 league by 143.0 points.
Our DFWC Week 6 “Shout Out of the Week” is shared by Sweetness and Suhey (202.35) and Island Styling (201.10) who were the only teams top 200 points during Week 6. Jeremy Reichhoff’s DFWC 26 team jumped from 263rd to 119th, while Jordon Morrison’s DFWC 14 squad moved from 176th to 69th overall
