With Week 7 now complete, we have reached the Half-Mile Pole in the 2023 Fulltime Fantasy Football FFWC XI regular season. Despite six teams being on a BYE, scoring was up following the lackluster numbers that were posted during Week 6 action.
With all 32 teams in action – Week 8 might be a standings “moving week” across all of our leagues. Here is a look at the Top 20 Leaderboards across the four Major FTF Tournaments.
For a third straight week, the top three teams remain unchanged in the race to claim the $150K FFWC XI Grand Prize. Five new teams joined the FTF World Championship Top 20 Leaderboard following Week 7 action.
Despite stumbling slightly, Team Just(in) Time (5-2) continues as the FFWC XI overall leader for a sixth straight week. Simeon Yarbrough and Brian Marzorini posted 133.95 points, which is their lowest single-week total this season. Their FFWC SLOW 4 squad hits the regular season halfway mark with 1230.40 points and a 175.77 weekly average. That’s 46.85 points better than the FFWC X mid-season leader who had 1183.55 points.
Mr Yellow Stickers (6-1) remains in second place for the third straight week. Mike Schlissberg’s WC Circa Hybrid 9/9 squad also slipped slightly with 148.50 points. That was still good enough to post a Week 7 head-to-head victory, plus reduce the overall deficit from 27.40 to 12.85 points. Mike leads his league by 142.70 points.
Also underperforming slightly, but gaining some ground on the top two leaders, Team Zefurs IV (6-1) retained third place overall. KJ Duke’s squad posted 156.25 points and went from 69.55 to 47.25 points out of first. With the second-place team struggling (98.80), Zefurs IV now leads FFWC Online 9/3 9 PM ET by 140.90 points.
Moving up two spots, from sixth to fourth, Fairways and Greens II (6-1) has made an impressive climb into the FFWC XI Top 5. Curtis Hirsch’s FFWC TOP GOLF VEGAS 9/9 squad posted 178.55 points. Sitting 295th overall, after averaging 137.40 points during the first two weeks, Fairways and Greens II has averaged 180.35 points over the last five weeks.
Rounding out the top five, Team Honeycutt sits fifth overall for a second straight week. Steve Honeycutt‘s FFWC Online 8/22 9 PM ET squad racked up 175.50 points. Another steady climber, sitting 208th after Week 2 action, Team Honeycutt has averaged 178.04 points over the last five weeks.
Our FFWC XI “Shout Out of the Week” goes to Team Draft Guy. Adam Krautwurst’s FFWC Online 8/20 10 PM ET squad posted a Week 7 high 214.10 points. Adams’s squad jumped from 328th to 134th overall and into the fourth playoff qualifying position in his league.
This is a classic example of why you should never stop grinding. During any given week, a team can make a huge move. Based on each team entering the overall playoffs with their 14-week average score, Draft Guy is now just 27.15 points behind the FFWC XI leader.
After the 200-point plateau wasn’t reached last week, four teams posted at least 202.55 points during Week 7 action. From that group, Team Sanaynay (7-0) racked up 203.45 points in the Circa Vegas TommyG Mayhem league. Chasing the $10K Dominator league prize, Sanaynay is 31.35 points away from having the best record and the most points.
If the playoffs started this week, just 24.54 points would separate the Top 100 FFWC XI teams. Down from 17, which had a 6-0 record after Week 6 action, 13 squads still own a perfect 7-0 record. Just two of those teams are currently in the Top 20 overall.
Scoring was also up slightly in our inaugural FullTime Fantasy Circa LVFC Tournament. The Top 20 leaderboard changed considerably as every position has a new team following the Week 7 action. Five new teams entered the Top 20 list and three of them moved into the Top 10 overall.
We have a new FTF Circa LVFC overall leader for the seventh straight week. Moving up two spots, from third to first, Team Leave It In (5-2) completed a climb that started with sitting 548th overall back in Week 1. Mike Moore and Michael Scherneck’s Circa LVFC 9/6 10 PM ET squad racked up 203.35 points. That was the fifth-highest Week 7 LVFC point total.
Let down by his explosive Tagovailoa/Mostert/Waddle Dolphins stack (31.9 points), Team 2 Bros DP (5-2) slipped from first to second overall. Robert Dinges Circa LVFC SLOW 5 squad posted 154.20 points. It’s not all bad news for Robert, as he is just 8.60 points out first, and still leads his league by 197.6 points.
Making a huge move, Team Reece (6-1) jumped from 30th to third overall. Dustin Reece receives our LFVC “Shout Out of the Week” after piling up a Week 7 high of 245.65 points. That’s the fifth-highest single-week score this season. Miss New Booty III still holds the top mark (265.50) set back in Week 3. Led by Lamar Jackson (39.45), Jordan Addison (31.4), and A.J. Brown (29.7), Team Reece had six starters post at least 22.30 points.
Slipping two positions, Team LOB (6-1) dropped from second to fourth overall. Mark Deming’s Circa LVFC 7/16 10:00 PM ET team stumbled to a season-low 134.90 points. RB Raheem Mostert and WR Calvin Ridley, who posted a combined 7.60 points, were the primary causes of the stumble. The good news is Mark still leads his league by 129.50 points.
Moving down one position, Team Miller slipped from fourth to fifth place. Jason Miller’s squad posted 151.45 points and has now spent the last five weeks in the LVFC top six overall. Team Miller moved to 7-0 and leads the Circa LVFC 8/27 5 PM ET league by 148.95 points. He also has a two-game lead over Kelce Deez Nutz who has a 5-2 record.
We send out a special “Welcome to the Top 20” to team Linda’s Crew. Proudly representing our inaugural Circa LVFC Women of Fantasy Football league, Linda Godfrey posted 173.65 points and moved from 31st to 19th overall.
After 22 teams entered Week 6 with a perfect 6-0 record, just 11 of the 1,056 Circa LVFC teams are still undefeated. Four of those teams are on the Top 20 Leaderboard. That includes Team Richards from the Circa LVFC Darius Rucker STAR-N-STRIPES league. Eric Richards’ squad posted 162.75 points and moved from 21st to 15th overall.
Five teams topped 200 points during Week 7, which is up from just three last week. In that group, Team Winters TE racked up 204.25 points and jumped from 80th to 24th overall. Rex Winters’ squad also moved into the fourth playoff position in the LVFC SLOW 1 league
