Fantasy Football 2019 – Week 8

The Seahawks logged another win to move to 6-2, but those pesky 49ers are still undefeated. Football Outsiders says that the 49ers have an 86% chance of winning the division and the Seahawks have a 43% chance of winning the wild card. (Minnesota and Phildelphia have similar wild card chances.) As for the Super Bowl, the best odds are that it will be New England vs the 49ers or the Saints. Don’t worry, they say there’s only a 4% chance that the 49ers will go undefeated…

Our league rebounded from our lowest scoring week of the season to the highest scoring week of the season. Our low score this week would have easily beaten everyone (except Tyler) last week. Logan is getting hot as we move through the middle of the season. His 4 game win streak has him in a tie for first. Luke and Tim still have huge point totals but they’re a game behind in 3rd. After next week we’ll have someone in sole possession of first place because Logan and Tyler are facing off. Only 6 weeks left until the playoffs!

Tim might be hanging out down in 4th place in the standings but the power rankings say he’s the toughest opponent right now.

1. Tim (Beer-me) +1
2. Luke (Helmetheads) -1
3. Tyler (Krazy Kanuck)
4. Logan (Goat Roapers) -1

On to the weekly awards… but wait… there are two new awards this time! I went back through all the data since 2007 and dug up the “Lowest winning score” and “Highest losing score”. Interestingly Tim holds the all time records for both ends of that stat.
