Week 4 Throwdown League Results

S h a r e :

trophy_105x105We currently have only one official Throwdown League running, although I suspect there are a couple of the unofficial variety on the go. This one started in Week 3, so Week 4 was the second week of its regular season. This league really needs a proper name, doesn’t it? League members, feel free to post suggestions.

The twist with the games this week – a Throwdown favorite – all-bench challenges! Using the start/bench filter our drafters could only select bench players, except defense. Charlie Whitehurst slipped through the cracks as the only QB who was marked as bench early in the week. Some difference makers included Devin Hester, Eddie Royal, Stevie Johnson, Brandon LaFell, and there sure wasn’t much to get excited about at running back.

A league is usually an 8-player, 8-week event, with players playing a 7-week double header regular season. The top two teams after the regular season compete in the eighth week in a triple header championship. A league gives some flexibility to have a little fun with the format, implementing neat twists and turns from regular Throwdown matches over the course of the regular season. Some examples include, “bench only challenges”, or “#RaceToTheBottom” (must pick all uninjured starters, but lowest points wins).

The payout for this $10 entry fee league is $50 for 1st place and $22 for 2nd place. Each player who placed in these spots also receives the trophy icon and achievement bonus points of 10 and 5 respectively, towards their Leaderboard ranking.

Bigchief37 holds down top spot after back-to-back 2-0 weeks. Wilforkisland was tied for first but falls back into a three-way tie for second after he split his week.

JeffNFL won his pair of games thanks to the aforementioned Eddie Royal. TheKommish won his doubleheader by the narrowest of margins of 1.1 and 0.3 points, which explains his 3-1 record but odd looking -20 points differential.

Note guys, the standings, for simplicity are sorted by record and then points differential, but head-to-head is still the first tie-breaker if needed to decide playoff spots at the end of the season. Each player should play every other player twice over the course of the season.
