Magill FFL: Techies, Rage Continue to Roll
By Ken Magill
The TowerData Techies and The Return Path Rage extended their winning streaks this week to keep them on solidly top of Divisions 1 and 3, respectively.
TowerData beat Permission Data 90.4 to 60.8, extending the Techies’ winning streak to four in a row. Return Path beat PL Marketing’s Orchard Lake Warrior 125.22 to 76.24, dropping the Warrior’s record to 2-6 and extending Return Path’s winning streak to three in a row.
Return Path’s leading scorer was Indianapolis quarterback Peyton Manning, who put up 28.02 fantasy points.
Both TowerData and Return Path sport impressive records of 7-1.
Meanwhile, e-Dialog’s e-D’s TDs came roaring back this week to score a league-leading 136 points in a lopsided win over Yesmail, snapping a two-game losing streak and allowing e-D’s TDs to hold onto the top spot in Division 2.
Detroit wide receiver Calvin Johnson led e-Dialog’s scoring, putting up 33.1 fantasy points. Kansas City running back Jamaal Charles and Houston running back Arian Foster also contributed mightily to e-Dialog’s win, scoring 28.8 points and 27.7 points, respectively.
Message Systems’ MS Destroyers—also in Division 2—kept pace with e-Dialog this week by beating StrongMail’s Orange Crush 115.92 to 105.04, extending Message Systems’ winning streak to four in a row.
Jacksonville wide receiver Mike Sims Walker was Message Systems’ leading scorer, putting up 26.3 points. Buffalo quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick—who has been on a fantasy tear since replacing Trent Edwards under center—also contributed solidly to Message Systems’ win with 23.22 points.
Both Message Systems and e-Dialog have records of 5-3 in a division very much up for grabs.
