Magill FFL: Oracle Romps, Stays No. 1
By Ken Magill
With six weeks left in the regular season, no team is statistically out of it yet, but some have deeper holes to dig out of than others. And, yes, I have a gift for stating the obvious.
Oracle is currently looking like the team to beat, having put up the highest point total this week and getting its third win in a row. Oracle romped over WhatCounts’ Count the TDs 220.2 to 155.4.
Once again, Oracle benefitted from a strong outing by New England quarterback Tom Brady who scored 53.7 fantasy points this week.
Oracle leads the league with a 6-1 record. WhatCounts’ record is 4-3.
Meanwhile, a resurgent FreshAddress put up the second-highest point total this week, beating Omeda’s oh My Omeda! 215.34 to 144.28. After struggling early on, FreshAddress is looking like a contender.
Both teams’ records are 3-4.
After putting up the second-highest score last week and yet losing to FreshAddress, Adestra got back on track this week. Adestra’s HMS Victory also had the most lopsided win this week, beating eDataSource’s Off Our mEDS 199.44 to 127.3.
The British invaders are in second place in the league with a record of 5-2. eDataSource’s record is 4-3.
The last two years’ previous champions—who have been struggling this year—got back in the win column this week.
The Net Atlantic Storm got its third win of the season, beating Fluent’s Fluent in Kicking @$$ 127.84 to 114.6. Both teams’ records are 3-4.
Epsilon got its second win of the year, beating Message Systems’ SparkPost Destroyers 126.5 to 111.98.
Message Systems’ record is 1-6.
The Doba Drop Shippers—who the hell let a drop shipper in this league?—failed to take my advice and started the Buffalo Bills defense, and fortunately for them it paid off.
Doba beat Yesmail 164.56 to 102.98. It didn’t help Yesmail that it was wrestling with bye issues and that two of its starters put up goose eggs this week.
Doba’s record is 4-3. Yesmail’s record is 2-5.
Sitting in third place with a 6-2 record is PL Marketing’s Orchard Lake United, who beat the TowerData Validators 127.1 to 85.28.
