Week 5 Throwdown League Results

S h a r e :

trophy_105x105We currently have only one official Throwdown League running, but that should change once sign ups and results become more automated. Then people can even start and run their own league, which would be pretty cool, but we’re not there yet.

This one started in Week 3, so Week 5 was the third week of its regular season. This week our league members played straight up – no funny business like the all-bench challenges in Week 4 – but we did add QB-Flex to the lineups.

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.

A huge shakeup this week in the standings! jeffNFL and Wilforkisland each won their pair of games, while Bigchief37 dropped both to fall out of 1st place and into 3rd.

TheKommish also fell on hard times. He was 3-1 heading into the week but dropped both of his games. mikemar won both of his (impressive, considering he probably went TE for his Flex instead of QB). Now there is a complete logjam in the middle with three, 3-3 teams.

rhazes_darkk got off the schneid with his first win, while tttimmyg continues to scuffle in this league. On the bright side, he lost the two closest matches of the week, by 8.25 to mikemar and 11.4 to Luxuriousdusti. Second thought, he probably preferred I didn’t bring that up…

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.
