I'll kick us off with the first (and shittiest) set of Draft Rankings!

MLBPPWorld Fantasy Football 2019 Draft Rankings

This year, I’ve decided to join the fun and add my own spin on the draft rankings by rating each team’s position groups using the Power Pros A-G scale. I’ll be ranking teams in order of their first-round draft position. I won’t be ranking defences or kickers, not because I don’t think they’re important, but because I simply don’t know that much about them, and don’t want to pretend like I know something I don’t.

Pick 1: Cool Brees (L. Sweany/ZeroGibson13)

QB: Drew Brees, Lamar Jackson — A. With both QBs coming off the board late in the draft (rounds 9 and 13), Zero got great value for his picks here. I love Jackson’s dual-threat ability, and Brees is simply one of the most dependable, valuable quarterbacks out there.
RB: Alvin Kamara, Nick Chubb, Darrell Henderson, Matt Breida, Kareem Hunt — C. I love Kamara, and Chubb is a hell of an RB2, but I’m not sold on any of the other three backs. Henderson is a nice upside play, but he’s got Todd Gurley and possibly others ahead of him; Breida plays in San Francisco; and Hunt comes with off-field issues, but is admittedly a great handcuff for Chubb.
WR: Antonio Brown, Tyler Boyd, Josh Gordon, Jarvis Landry, Curtis Samuel, DK Metcalf, Marquise Brown — B. Really nice group of players here, from the reliable Brown and Landry to the five huge splash upside plays. I like Boyd the most, but I’ve had the chance to see Samuel over the years as a collegian, and he’s got the potential to be something special too. Not to mention the now-reinstated Gordon and Combine darling Metcalf.
TE: Jared Cook — B. Cook is great, but he’s been prone to injuries in the past, and this position is not very deep, leaving me wondering what Zero will do to fill this spot on New Orleans’s bye or in case of another injury.

Pick 2: Team Griffith (J. Griffith/jag123jg)

QB: Baker Mayfield, Jimmy Garoppolo — B. Baker’s awesome, but Jimmy G has struggled with his mechanics since returning from a season-ending knee injury. With any luck, Jag won’t have to worry about that too much, and by the time Cleveland’s bye rolls around, we may be painting a whole different picture, as the Niners QB will have had more time to recover by then.
RB: Saquon Barkley, Leonard Fournette, Damien Williams, Derrius Guice, Duke Johnson Jr., Jordan Howard, Jaylen Samuels — D. Okay now what the *(censored)*. Saquon is good but just what the fresh hell is the rest of this group. Come on. [Four members of this group post 20+ FP Week 1] Oh shit. Oh *(censored)*
WR: Mike Evans, Brandin Cooks, Dante Pettis, Kenny Stills — D. Mike Evans is good, Cooks is a solid WR2, but where’s the depth? Where’s the *(censored)* depth?
TE: Evan Engram, Jordan Reed — B. Arguably the best tight-end room in the league, if they can stay healthy. And that’s a big if. I wanted to give this duo an A, but I just can’t. (Side note, I really *(censored)* hope Jordan Reed doesn’t get another concussion. Those *(censored)* are brutal.)

Pick 3: You’ve Been Juiced! (Shane H./LetsGoMets77)

QB: Ben Roethlisberger, Kyler Murray — C. Just not that sold on either of these guys.
RB: Christian McCaffrey, Joe Mixon, Sony Michel, Austin Ekeler, Peyton Barber, Ronald Jones — A. I really like this group’s depth, and the Bucs duo is a nice hedge. This group might have three or more RB1s in it.
WR: Keenan Allen, Julian Edelman, Kenny Golladay, Christian Kirk, John Brown, Mecole Hardman — C. Allen/Edelman is a solid 1-2, but the rest are too inconsistent to trust, although I’ll admit that the upside with Golladay and Kirk especially are probably too much to pass up.
TE: O.J. Howard — D. Solid, but not spectacular.

Pick 4: Detroit Phantoms (J. Pastoor/detroittigers15)

QB: Cam Newton — B. I love Cam, but I’m a firm believer in having two trustworthy QBs, and well, there’s just one.
RB: James Conner, Chris Carson, Aaron Jones, Kenyan Drake, Tevin Coleman, Latavius Murray, Darwin Thompson, Justin Jackson — F. Honestly, my favourite of this group is Jackson on pure talent alone, and he’s a third-stringer at best in LA.
WR: DeAndre Hopkins, Stefon Diggs, Calvin Ridley, Golden Tate, Albert Wilson — B. Really nice top four here, I don’t know much about Wilson but a WR5 is a WR5 right?
TE: Vance McDonald — E. See Pick 3, but a little worse.

Pick 5: Smokin Jay’s Cig Squad (J. Wright/Queso James)

QB: Deshaun Watson, Russell Wilson — B. Love me some running quarterbacks. This is a high B, one of those that’s augmented with a few blue abilities to really squeeze the best out of your player. Think 13 run speed with Base Running 4 and Stealing 4.
RB: Kerryon Johnson, Marlon Mack, Phillip Lindsay, Tony Pollard — G. Please trade me Tony Pollard.
WR: Davante Adams, Robert Woods, Robby Anderson, Larry Fitzgerald, Michael Gallup, Marquez Valdes-Scantling — A. Probably the best WR group in the league.
TE: Travis Kelce, Austin Hooper — A. Kelce is an elite tight end, and Hooper is a decent backup worth his 15th-round tag.

Pick 6: Los Angeles Aodgers (J. Rollins/Kungfupandacam)

QB: Carson Wentz, Jameis Winston — C. Low floor, but I really like the upside of these two QBs.
RB: David Johnson, Dalvin Cook, Devonta Freeman, James White, Tarik Cohen — B. Really solid position group here. A bruiser in Cook, a scatback in White, a slasher in Freeman, a workhorse in Johnson, and a utility back in Cohen — a head coach would have a lot of fun with a group like this, and I think this’ll be a high-scoring bunch for the Aodgers.
WR: Adam Thielen, Alshon Jeffery, Emmanuel Sanders, Jamison Crowder, Geronimo Allison, Devin Funchess — C. Pretty solid group, Thielen and Funchess are my favourites, and I like Sanders as well.
TE: David Njoku, Trey Burton — C. Njoku’s solid, and Burton is an interesting backup option.

Pick 7: Kerryon My Wayward Son (R. Tomlinson/dishnet34)

QB: Patrick Mahomes, Jared Goff, Nathan Peterman — A. Patty Bats GOAT.
RB: Ezekiel Elliott, Todd Gurley II, Josh Jacobs, Malcolm Brown — B. Nice top two, but that dropoff is rough. I like Jacobs, but maybe not as much as his 4th-round tag would indicate.
WR: Cooper Kupp, DJ Moore, Sterling Shepard, Corey Davis, Mohamed Sanu — C. Decent group here, but no real standouts. Sanu’s a personal favourite.
TE: Hunter Henry, Eric Ebron — B. Really nice duo to round things out on a pretty well-balanced roster. Although, I’d be dropping Peterman and looking for a high-upside tailback pretty quickly.

Pick 8: Atomic Pickles (O. Bernhart/AgentP)

A word on my draft: I was unable to make most of the draft, thus my team was mostly autodrafted, with the exceptions of the 1st, 5th, and 17th picks.


QB: Aaron Rodgers, Andrew Luck — B. Rodgers is nice, but come the *(censored)* on, computer. Drafting Luck on the same day he retired is Not Cool.
RB: Melvin Gordon, Lamar Miller, Nyheim Hines, LeSean McCoy — F. I can’t give myself a G, can I? [I realise that I can do this] Oh shit. Oh *(censored)*
WR: Julio Jones, JuJu Smith-Schuster, A.J. Green, Mike Williams, Will Fuller V, James Washington, Tyrell Williams, Anthony Miller — A. Depth, high-end talent, upside, personal favourites — it’s all there in this group. (Unsurprisingly, the two favourites are Jones and Green, two of the three picks I made myself.)
TE: Zach Ertz — B. I guess we’re doing this again for the fifth year in a row.

Pick 9: El Salvador Robbers (J. Acaccia/Baseballteen9500)

QB: Matt Ryan, Dak Prescott, Tom Brady — A. Yeah.
RB: Le’Veon Bell, Mark Ingram II, Rashaad Penny — F. I like Penny, but yeesh. Depth is important, y’all. Not sure what’s up with dropping Penny immediately after the draft instead of shopping him to an RB-needy team (like the Robbers [someone alerts me that this is the Robbers, oh shit oh *(censored)*]), but whatever.
WR: Michael Thomas, Amari Cooper, T.Y. Hilton, Tyler Lockett, Allen Robinson, Marvin Jones Jr., Courtland Sutton, DeSean Jackson — B. Pretty good group that gets docked for the Luck retirement (Hilton) and the bizarre drops of Sutton and Jackson after the draft. Seriously man, what the heck?
TE: Delanie Walker — E. He’s probably losing a step. Right?

Pick 10: Odd Year Magic (M. Ratajczyk/GoTwins24)

QB: Mitchell Trubisky — C. TruGOATsky am I right
RB: Derrick Henry, David Montgomery, Miles Sanders, Royce Freeman, Devin Singletary — D. I honestly like this group quite a bit, but I’m always worried about the Chicago and Denver (and New England) backfields. Singletary is a hell of an upside play, though he’s got three veterans blocking him currently. [The Bills trade McCoy, Gore, and Yeldon to Dallas for Zeke] Oh shit. Oh f
WR: Odell Beckham Jr., Tyreek Hill, Chris Godwin, Sammy Watkins, Dede Westbrook, Keke Coutee, Donte Moncrief — D. Nice top-end talent with OBJ and Tyreek (the latter’s off-field issues nudge this group from a low C to a high D), but I’m fading the rest of this group, save for Coutee.
TE: George Kittle, Kyle Rudolph — A. This is a frontline duo with the potential to fill one of the league’s two (!) flex spots most weeks, something that’s quite unlikely to find at the tight end position.

Overall Superlatives:

Best Draft: Cool Brees
Best Team Name: Odd Year Magic
Best Position Group: Tie - You've Been Juiced! (RB), Atomic Pickles (WR)
Best Value Picks (Final 2 rounds excluded, sorry to Mecole Hardman): Kyle Rudolph (Odd Year Magic/Round 15), Golden Tate (Detroit Phantoms/Round 14), Jordan Reed (Team Griffith/Round 13)

Offer me something good for the starting Cowboys RB and I might trade him. Also you said I had probably the best WR core in the league and then you said yours was better so what’s up.

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 1 RECAP

Odd Year Magic (GoTwins24) 106.5
You've Been Juiced! (LetsGoMets77) 130

Summary:
After another disappointing playoff exit, You've Been Juiced! entered the 2019 season with one thing in mind: finally winning that elusive championship. Their roster certainly passed the week 1 test, as fantasy monster Christian McCaffrey proved his elite status with a 37-point outburst. Keenan Allen, who can be seen as the team's second-best scoring option, also shined with 22 points. You've Been Juiced! made an incredibly smart preseason waiver addition last year by adding James Conner, and it appears as if they have done the same this year through the addition of Tyrell Williams, who amassed nearly 20 points after emerging as the number one option in Oakland. There were a few disappointments, specifically OJ Howard and Joe Mixon, who each only scored less than four points. Big Ben was also a bit of a letdown, only recording 9 in a terrible offensive game Sunday night. Philadelphia's defense didn't record any points despite what seemed to be a favorable matchup against Washington. Still, You've Been Juiced! received enough production to easily offset these disappointments. If Mixon struggles, he can be replaced by Austin Ekeler, who recorded a ridiculous 35 point outburst. Odd Year Magic will be kicking themselves after one major decision. Although Sammy Watkins started off in the team's starting lineup, the team benched him in favor of Dede Westbrook. The logic behind this was that the team wanted to avoid starting two receivers on the same team. This decision directly resulted in the loss, as Watkins outscored Westbrook by a remarkable 30 points, and Tyreek Hill left the game due to injury. The matchup got off to an ugly start on Thursday, as Mitchell Trubisky and David Montgomery combined for a mere 11.5 points. This dreadful showing will lead to a roster evaluation from Odd Year Magic. Concerns about Derrick Henry's production were alleviated as Henry led the team in scoring with 27.5 points. Overall though, the performance can only be described as mediocre, as a handful of players scored between 9-12 points, which will not cut it in this league. Odd Year Magic may look to make some roster changes as the week progresses.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 133
Team Griffith (jag123jg) 107

Summary:
The Los Angeles Aodgers secured a comfortable victory thanks to some great performances from key players. Dalvin Cook led the way with 24 points, and the Aodgers will certainly be ecstatic with the fact that Minnesota's offense may revolve entirely around Cook as the team only threw the ball 10 times. David Johnson also played a key role despite Kliff Kingsbury's air raid offense, which resolves any concern regarding his workload. Carson Wentz started off slow but finally found a rhythm with his numerous offensive weapons. Wentz finished with 24, and if many fantasy experts are correct, Los Angeles can expect to have a top-5 fantasy QB this year. Along with Wentz, Alshon Jeffery performed as expected, dropping 18.5 points. Los Angeles also received two pleasant surprises as Jamison Crowder and Emmanuel Sanders both hit the 16-point mark. The biggest concern for them is Devonta Freeman, who was a massive letdown due to a 1.5-point output. If this output is consistent, Los Angeles may need to re-evaluate the flex spot, but they will probably give him many more chances. Team Griffith suffered a disappointing loss after some rough performances. On the bright side, Evan Engram emerged as a legitimate TE1 with a 22.5 point outing. Saquon Barkley was a bit disappointing by his standards, but he still gave an acceptable point total. Outside of Barkley though, there were a lot of letdowns. Specifically, Baker Mayfield recorded only 9 points despite a plethora of additions to the Cleveland offense. Mike Evans may have been the letdown of the week with a mere 3 points. There is some definite concern with Evans based on the limitations of Jameis Winston, so Team Griffith will need Winston to get it together. Brandin Cooks is regarded as one of the most consistent fantasy receivers, but he did not live up to that title this week, scoring only 4 points. Derrius Guice only put up 4.5 points before leaving the game with an injury. It was announced that Guice will, in fact, miss time due to an injury, which may be crushing to Team Griffith, but they do have the option of Duke Johnson Jr. off the bench. Overall, Team Griffith will need to hope for better production from numerous impact players.

Smokin Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 115
Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 91

Summary:
Smokin Jay's Cig Squad spoiled (spoiler Boilers back?) the Atomic Pickles' banner ceremony with a big win. They will mostly thank Deshaun Watson, who many experts rank as the best fantasy QB not named Patrick Mahomes. Watson exploded for an incredible 30 points, which secured the win for the Cig Squad. Marlon Mack was the second reason the Cig Squad spoiled the banner ceremony as he put to rest the narrative that he would not be as productive without Andrew Luck. Mack recorded an incredible 25 points. Harrison Butker also demonstrated the effects of having great kickers on high-octane offenses, providing a pivotal 17 points. Smokin Jay's Cig Squad probably could have won by more, but Denver's defense actually lost them a point. This is especially surprising given the fact that Vic Fangio took over the helm as the team's head coach. Davante Adams also didn't provide much help, but he faced a difficult matchup, so it can probably be written off. The team's overall depth was bolstered by strong outings from Larry Fitzgerald and Michael Gallup, who can certainly help what looks to be a dicey situation at flex receiver. Robby Anderson is dealing with a calf injury and thus only scored 3.5 points. Still, it was a promising opening week victory for Smokin' Jay's Cig Squad. The defending champion struggled after some poor auto-draft luck. The team drafted Andrew Luck on the night of his retirement, Lamar Miller the week before he suffered a torn ACL, and Melvin Gordon on the night of his retirement. The team's RB situation is so cloudy that Kyle Juszczyk started as the team's RB2. Nyheim Hines was the primary RB, and he only managed 3 points. Dak Prescott was the main bright spot, scoring 33 points in the first game of his "prove-it" year. The team will certainly be relying on their receivers, but no receiver recorded more than 15 points. This is especially surprising in a lineup that contains Allen Robinson, Julio Jones, Zach Ertz, and Juju Smith-Schuster. If the team figures out the RB position through waivers, they might be able to overcome their rough autodraft luck.

Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 105.5
Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 123.5

Summary:
This matchup between our Detroit representatives did not end in a tie. Kerryon My Wayward Son claimed victory thanks to Josh Jacobs's clutch 22.5 point outing on Monday night. A disappointing performance may have led to disaster, but Jacobs came through in his NFL debut. The team was put in position to win due to Patrick Mahomes's 27-point game in which he proved that 2018 was no fluke. The risk of taking Ezekiel Elliot paid off as Zeke ended his holdout right before the week. Elliot scored 12.5 points, but he was placed on a snap count due to a lack of preseason reps. Todd Gurley was another risk, and it seems that Sean McVay is going to save him for crucial situations only. To counter this, the team drafted Malcolm Brown as a handcuff, which is a wise decision. A few players had average performances, such as DJ Moore and Cooper Kupp, but the front-loaded talent carried the team to victory. The Detroit Phantoms will definitely be disappointed after this loss, as many players struggled to perform. Cam Newton is usually a guaranteed production machine, but he only scored 5 points. Outside of Chris Carson, the team's running backs failed to surpass the 10 point mark. James Conner, Aaron Jones, and Tevin Coleman all shockingly underperformed their projections. Tevin Coleman left the game due to injury, which makes things difficult for the Phantoms, who did not have a breakout RB on the bench. DeAndre Hopkins and the aforementioned Chris Carson prevented the game from being a total disaster, but the Phantoms definitely expected more in the opening week.

El Salvador Robbers (BaseballTeen9500) 191
Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 104.5

Summary:
The newest addition to the fantasy league made their presence known in a major way, recording the single best performance in the now 4-year history of the league. Every single position player surpassed the double-digit mark. Every single one. Additionally, the only player under 15 points was Tyler Lockett. Le'Veon Bell and Mark Ingram appear to be a formidable RB duo, combining for an incredible 42 points. San Francisco's defense was ridiculous, feasting on Jameis Winston for 30 points!! TY Hilton also showed that he can still produce without Andrew Luck, scoring 24 points. The team is set to make a number of trades after this week, so it will be interesting to see if the new-look roster will produce as well as the team did in Week 1, but the performance was bar none the best fantasy game in the history of the league. They will definitely be comfortably ahead in the weekly power rankings. Cool Brees is accustomed to the top power ranking spot, but they struggled in Week 1. Lamar Jackson and Hollywood Brown were on the team's bench despite combining for 60 points, but the team would have lost even if they had started. There was nothing the team could do to avoid a Week 1 defeat. Drew Brees and Alvin Kamara have formed the core of this team for the last three seasons now, and they were as reliable as usual, both basically scoring 20. Josh Gordon also delivered a solid 14.5 points, but it will be intriguing to see how Antonio Brown's presence affects Gordon's usage. The team also has Antonio Brown on the roster, so Gordon may be used as a backup plan in case things go haywire with Brown. Matt Breida was poor this week, but on the bright side, he is poised for a big role now that Tevin Coleman is injured. The team is relying heavy on the Cleveland Browns' offense with three players on the team (Landry, Chubb, Hunt) so they will need Freddie Kitchens's team to get things sorted out quickly. It wasn't the start the team envisioned, but you can always count on Cool Brees being a factor in the league.

Standings:

Alvin Lockhart Division
You've Been Juiced! 1-0
Kerryon My Wayward Son 1-0

MLBPPWORLD FANTASY WEEK 2 RECAP

Odd Year Magic (GoTwins24) 167
Kerryon My Wayward Son (Dishnet34) 111.5

Summary:
After a disheartening Week 1 loss, Odd Year Magic rebounded in an astounding fashion, exploding for 167 points. Their roster looked dramatically different after trading George Kittle to the El Salvador Robbers in exchange for Tom Brady, Amari Cooper, and Delanie Walker. These three were pivotal in El Salvador's record-breaking Week 1 win, and they played similar roles this week for their new team. Tom Brady exploited Miami's awful defense en route to 24 points. Cooper was quiet early but scored a late touchdown to surpass the double-digit mark. Delanie Walker was not as effective as he was last week, and he was outshined by Mark Andrews on the bench. The team also added New England's defense due to an extremely favorable matchup, and the decision paid off in a big way thanks to the team's 35-point explosion. As for players who were on the Week 1 roster, Odell Beckham Jr. and Chris Godwin stole the show, combining for 47 points. This win will certainly erase the bad taste from last week. Kerryon My Wayward Son dropped their first game of the year despite a heroic effort from team leader Patrick Mahomes, who threw four touchdowns before the first half ended. Mahomes finished with a remarkable 35 points. In addition, Zeke Elliot overcame a slow start to finish with a respectable 18 points. Unfortunately, the bottom half of the team's depth chart struggled to make an impact. Hunter Henry's absence definitely hurt as the team had to scramble to stream Noah Fant. Fant only recorded 5 points, but nothing more was really expected from him against Chicago's defense. Chicago's defense was also among the disappointments due to the fact that the team only recorded 5 points despite a late interception. Matt Prater was uncharacteristically poor, failing to score a single point due to some terrible missed kicks. It was a disappointing loss for sure, but in all honesty, nothing more could really have been done to prevent the loss. It was just poor matchup luck for Kerryon My Wayward Son.

Smokin Jay's Cig Squad (Queso James) 97
You've Been Juiced! (LGM77) 85.5

Summary:
Smokin Jay's Cig Squad benefitted from some matchup luck this week as they possessed the lowest winning point total. The win can be attributed to Travis Kelce and Kerryon Johnson. Kelce nearly hit the 20-point mark and Johnson scored a respectable 15 in a bounce-back effort. Davante Adams also had somewhat of a recovery with a 13.5 point outing. His totals have been lower than expected, but this is probably due to tough matchups. Deshaun Watson scored 12 which is pretty low for his standards, but it was still enough to separate the Cig Squad. Marlon Mack and Phillip Lindsay both had down weeks, combining for a pretty low 15 points. The Cig Squad is one of two undefeated teams in the league, but they will need to put together more convincing wins in order to remain among the league's best. You've Been Juiced! suffered a rough loss thanks to some pretty odd games. The outlook was bleak after OJ Howard failed to record a single point Thursday Night. In addition, Christian McCaffrey only scored 5 points, which is unbelievably low by his standards. With the announcement of Cam Newton's injury, the team will have some anxiety as to whether or not McCaffrey will play at his usual level. The team's QB should have done more, but Roethlisberger left the game due to injury. It was announced that he will miss the remainder of the season, but You've Been Juiced! will turn to Aaron Rodgers to solidify the weakness at QB. Austin Ekeler was the only bright spot, scoring 19.5 points, and it appears that he will be an elite fantasy option. There are many question marks going forward, but You've Been Juiced! will probably be able to figure them out.

Team Griffith (jag123jg) 122.5
Detroit Phantoms (DTigers115) 93

Summary:
Team Griffith won their first game of the year thanks to the third-highest point total of the week. Three players were pivotal in the win. Firstly, John Ross looks like an absolute waiver steal due to a 19-point game. It's worth noting he did this in a terrible game for the Bengals. It's unclear what his role will be upon the return of AJ Green, but Team Griffith will not have to worry about that for a while. Secondly, Matt Ryan scored 18 despite a multi-interception game. Finally, Saquon Barkley was his usual productive self, scoring 19.5 points. Daniel Jones's introduction may give Barkley some hope of a more productive offensive scheme, which in turn would cause Team Griffith to skyrocket. Aside from Barkley, running back remains a position of question. Damien Williams and Leonard Fournette only combined for 17.5 points, which is unsatisfactory for the duo. Rashaad Penny could be a viable option off the bench in case their production stays low, but Team Griffith will probably ride it out with the current pairing. Team Griffith will hope to turn this victory into a trend. The Detroit Phantoms suffered another tough defeat. Calvin Ridley was the standout thanks to a 20-point game (some of it was negated by Matt Ryan). Aside from him, there were a lot of shocking letdowns. DeAndre Hopkins only scored 6.5 points, but a lower output was probably to be expected due to a tough matchup. Desean Jackson was introduced into the second flex spot, but an injury held him to no points. Injuries were a common theme this week as Cam Newton and James Conner are now both dealing with injuries. Aaron Jones can offset a potential loss of Conner, but the team will have to look to the waiver wire to replace Newton for the time being. An 0-2 start is not a death sentence, especially for the Phantoms who miraculously snuck into the postseason last year, but they will need a quick turnaround.

Los Angeles Aodgers (Kungfupandacam) 93.5
El Salvador Robbers (BaseballTeen9500) 102

Summary:
The closest game of the week came down to Monday Night. The Robbers won thanks to a 20-point surge from Le'Veon Bell, who appears to be the entirety of the New York offense. There was massive roster turnover after El Salvador's record-breaking Week 1 win, and this turnover nearly cost them in Week 2. George Kittle underwhelmed with 6.5 points in his debut, but his early-season struggles can most likely be written off. Mark Ingram fell down to earth a bit, scoring just 8 points this week. The team's QB situation appears to be quite strong, with Josh Allen and Jimmy Garoppolo both surpassing the 20-point mark. The team will have flexibility to avoid tough matchups. The solid play of Michael Thomas and TY Hilton secured enough points for the win, but there are questions at the flex spot in Amari Cooper's absence. Danny Amendola didn't score any points this week, which may indicate that his opening week was a one-off. However, Terry McLaurin is waiting in the wings, so El Salvador may have found another steal. The Aodgers struggled after a strong showing last week. This was mostly due to injuries to Alshon Jeffery, David Johnson, and David Njoku. If those three remained healthy, the Aodgers probably would have won. Dalvin Cook did all he could to propel his team to a win with 25.5 points. Carson Wentz also had a strong game, but he even left the game at a point due to an injury. Injuries appear to be a strong concern for the Aodgers, but they do have Emmanuel Sanders on the bench to potentially offset a loss at WR. If the team returns to full health, they will be a strong playoff contender.

Atomic Pickles (AgentP) 126
Cool Brees (ZeroGibson13) 90

Summary:
The Atomic Pickles won the battle of the previous two league champions through a bounce-back effort. Dak Prescott led the way once again with 26 points. He appears to be the real deal in fantasy this year, which will make the retirement of Andrew Luck easier for the Pickles to swallow. Julio Jones was himself once again with a 24.5 point outing. Before the game, the Pickles predicted that the traded Raheem Moster would score 25 points. He nearly lived up to this prophecy, scoring 21.5. He may be a tough loss, though his role upon the return of Tevin Coleman is unclear. The team's RB situation will be given a boost with the arrival of Joe Mixon from You've Been Juiced! Although Mixon has struggled, he will still solidify a major question mark. The Pickles can breath easier with this win alongside the blockbuster deal. Cool Brees suffered greatly from the loss of their namesake player. Brees lost the team a point and will miss the next 6 weeks. Fortunately, the team drafted Lamar Jackson to replace Brees for the time being. Pairing Lamar with Hollywood Brown will certainly give the team an edge. Antonio Brown looked impressive despite a limited amount of targets in his New England this week, but it can be expected that his role will increase later in the year. Tyler Boyd was also strong, flourishing as the main receiver in Cincy. Nick Chubb had a bounce-back effort as well with 17 points. The biggest letdown was another team cornerstone, Alvin Kamara, who struggled without Drew Brees. There will definitely be some anxiety in the Cool Brees camp about Kamara's production in the next six weeks. It is pretty shocking to see a perennial contender off to an 0-2 start, but there is still plenty of time left in the year.
