Week 6 Throwdown League Results

S h a r e :

trophy_105x105A 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).

We 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. 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.

This one started in Week 3, so we are past the halfway mark of the 7-week regular season after the conclusion of Week 6. The games this week restricted our players to using three of only four NFL games on the schedule. Those games were Jaguars-Titans, Lions-Vikings, Chargers-Raiders and 49ers-Rams.

Why these games? They were calculated as the lowest combined points scored of all NFL games on the Week 6 schedule, so our players have to dig deep to find some fantasy success from these NFL rosters. As expected, it resulted in some close matches, included a 1.4 point win by tttimmyg over jeffNFL and a 2.3 point win by Wilforkisland over rhazes_darkk.

Throwdown League #1 (reg. season week 4)

Wk 6 – TL1 – 10 W L PF   PA   Dif  
1. Wilforkisland 7 1 672.9 544.0 129.0
2. jeffNFL 6 2 729.1 586.9 142.2

7. tttimmyg 2 6 637.6 695.8 -58.3
8. rhazes_darkk 1 7 558.0 641.4 -83.4

Wilforkisland won both of his matches to jump to 7-1 and sit all alone in first place through four weeks. The only other 2-0 week goes to tttimmyg, giving him his first two wins of the season and pulling him out of the basement.

There were four players who split their games this week, but still some separation in the standings based on head-to-head record when all was said and done. jeffNFL holds 2nd place with a 6-2 record. BigChief37 is a game behind in 3rd at 5-3, while TheKommish and Luxuriousdusti are in 4th and 5th with an even 4-4 record.

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.
