*Updated Power Rankings
- BU Huskies (2-0), no change: Huskies did nothing wrong to lose this top spot. Solid contributions from just about everyone on the roster for week two. Still scored 123+ points with two of his WR's having poor performances. Warner played surprisingly well for the early East Cost games. If he continues to show signs of the Kurt Warner we saw last year, then BU will be nearly unbeatable, especially with the way Brees is throwing the ball around. The only bad news for Huskies this week, Marion Barber suffered an injury, but it shouldn't be too serious.
- Thetruth (2-0), +1 spot: Good thing he didn't trade Chris Johnson. True it was the Texans, but he showed the big play ability that he is known for. However, Thetruth will need McNabb back before they start playing some of the other top teams in this league, currently his QBs aren't producing enough. Jason Campbell does have nice 3 game schedule coming up though. An upgrade at WR3 and TE2, plus the eventual return of McNabb will help this team stay near the top, if not at the top.
- purplejesus allday (2-0), +2 spots: Another big week for this team even with its top players nearly being shut down (Jacobs, Moss, and Jones-Drew combined for about 16 points). With Hasselbeck's latest injury, PJ allday will need Cassell to show more signs of improvement, just in case Hasselbeck can't play next week. Regardless, this roster has the best collection of WRs, RBs, and TEs in the league and will keep this team in the top 5 all year.
- the birdmen (1-1), -2 spots: Just fell short of the 100 point mark. Could have played 5 other teams in our league and won. Romo's performance, Mark Bradley's ineffectiveness, Carlson's bad game, and Westbrook and the Eagle's bad day may have led to a loss. A couple of holes in this starting roster though, but nothing that a good old waiver wire pickup couldn't fix.
- Turtles (1-1), -1 spot: The Greg Jennings' doughnut performance was unexpected and kept Turtles from breaking 100 points, of course starting Jamal Lewis may have prevented that as well. The addition of S-Jax, F-Jax, and Kevin Smith will give this team more depth at the RB position, however, Forte should be expected to bounce back with the favorable schedule he has coming up. Overall, with two of the top 10 fantasy QBs, Turtles will be in every game and won't lose too often. However, Aaron Rodgers will need better protection from his O-Line if he wants to remain in the top 10, luckily a cupcake schedule is coming up for Rodgers along with a bye week.
- Gatorheels (1-1), no change: Well Palmer and Schaub both bounced back for Gatorheels, unfortunately Schaub was on the bench while Gatorheels got the win. The acquisition of Forte will be huge for this team and McFadden still has all the breakout potential in the world. Colston and Andre Johnson were huge for them as well this week. Bernard Berrian's big play ability may be limited this entire year with Favre at QB. The TE spots could definitely use an upgrade. Wouldn't be surprised to see Gatorheels in the top 5 very soon, but not just yet.
- Them Crooked Vultures (1-1), +2 spots: The upgrade from Shaun Hill to Trent Edwards has helped, and the QB play may not be as questionable as originally thought. Frank Gore's performance aided in the score of 145 points, although those 36 points from Gore would be better served next week against Gatorheels. WR production is still low, although Welker (injured), Housh, and Boldin are capable of putting together big games.
- R-Dot (1-1), -1 spot: The unlucky team of the week award belongs to R-Dot. This squad put up 106 points, which was good enough to have beaten a specific 6 other teams in the league. Eli Manning continue to play well, and the Giants might not be a run heavy team like every one envisioned. Steve Smith certainly rebounded from his poor week one performance. Donnie Avery continues to struggle, as does the entire Rams' offense.
- The Lion Pack (0-2), -1 spot: Poor QB play was the sole reason for the loss this week. Brady will bounce back, Russell probably won't. This is still a dangerous team that could surprise some of the top teams any give week.
- Eagles (1-1), no change: This team put up less points than last week, but the outcome was different, go figure. Brown and Turner both bounced back, as expected. Roy Williams may not be a reliable #1 WR, especially if Romo keeps making bad decisions. A negative one point from your defense is never good.
- New York Monsta (0-2), no change: NY Monsta played a little bit better, but no much. Unfortunately, they ran into the top scoring team for the week. Delhomme showed much improvement, but it could be misleading since he has had a history of playing well against the Falcons. Nonetheless, still a positive compared to last week's performance. Will need much better production from their WRs and RBs if they want to score 100+ points. Lynch's return may not help this team as much as originally thought considering how well Fred Jackson has been playing.
- LEMONS (0-2), no change: Flacco and Sanchez are two surprise QBs this year, but they can't cover for the lack of production from the rest of LEMONS' squad. However, this team will sneak up on somebody during the bye week stretch of the season and get a win.
i cant wait.
im number two this time
There it is.
thanks man keep up the good work
Very well written with solid points. Good job, although I do not think I have the best team.
dude actually the lion pack is 0-2. and i dont think im that high i have a lot of question marks and most of my players havent lived up to their expectations.
For pointing out the Lion Pack record.
As teams keep losing and other teams keep winning, I'll make the changes. I'm basically updating the rankings on a week to week basis based off of where I felt teams started before the season and how they progress or regress through the year. BU, you may not have the best team now, due to injuries to Gonzalez and Barber, but you are still one of the top teams. I felt you were the best team to start the year and your team hasn't done anything to lose that spot yet. It would be simple to just put all of the teams in order by points scored and say that is the power rankings, but we all know that teams have bad weeks due to matchups or injuries and on the flip side, some teams like mine, have crazy weeks where they have several players play well and one guy go off for 36 points because he had an easy matchup.
I'll be honest though, there are 4-5 teams that are slowly separating from the rest of the league, but I still have to see more from them before the rankings show that.
i think gatorheels will have the best team in the league. i knew he was smart in basketball. but i didnt know he was smart in footballlike that either, hes real smart and sneaky. he knew what he was doing all along. hes just like me.
