Week 7 Power Rankings
() TysonChandlerParsons 5-1
: Maintains his top spot in the league for the 3rd week in a row. He now has been #1 longer than any other team in the league, an accomplishment to be proud of. This week was not an easy win however as he faced an underrated team nonetheless was able to sneak by with a 5-4 win.
() Keep Floatin 4-1
: Not really the most impressive week tying one of the worst teams in the league. However with trading away Dwight and his whole team healthy, things can only go up from here. Has an interesting challenge next week in an attempt to prove he belongs where he is.
3. (+1) Big Poppa PUMPIN 4-2
: Make that 4 straight. Caught a break this week with the team he was facing having all sorts of injuries, nonetheless he had a strong victory. Has a sound team philosophy and has done nothing but win lately and continues to reach new highs in the power rankings for himself.
4. (+1) DRAKE 4-2
: Finally ended his W-L-W-L pattern with a win showing he belongs on the top end rather than bottom end. He has won 3 out of his last 4 and his only losses have been close 5-4 losses. Definately looks playoff bound, but has interesting challenges the next 3 weeks with a chance to prove he should be considered championship favorite.
5. (+4) Team Fournicator 3-3
: Welcome to the Top 5. Has been pretty low all year in the Power Rankings but a very impressive and dominant victory last week has changed everything. And looking at his team it isn't surprising he is here, he has the Fantasy MVP Anthony Davis along with a stong supporting case led by Klay and many other youngsters. Definately belongs in the Top 5 needs to show more consistency though. Tough matchup this week.
6. (+2) Slingers' Den 3-3
: Improves to a very unexpected 3-1 since taking over the team. I think no one would have believed this 0-2 arguably worst team would win the next 3 out of 4 with the manager change, but somehow it has happened. He has beaten respectable opponents in that span as well. But the challenges don't stop here, next stop is the #1 ranked team to beat. But don't count this team out, it has upset many teams already.
7. (-4) Iamgine 3-2
: A team that used to be formerly #1, has now dropped to #7 and out of the Top 5 for the first time this season. This lost was just unforgivable, as he got completely dominated the entire week.
8. (+4) G-Train 3-3
: Just when you thought Gtrain is just going to start losing from here, he comes back with a sound win over a Top 6 ranked team. GTrain's team has been a mystery all season, many underperforming players but here he is at 3-3. Still needs to win more to prove mediocricy is not his peak, has a good chance to do that against a Top 3 ranked team this week.
9. (-3) Dream Team 3-3
: The losses continue to pile up against the bottom ranked opponents. Is now 3-0 vs. opponents ranked in the top 10, and 0-3 vs. opponents ranked in the bottom 4. Unfortunately for him he will go against another bottom 4 ranked opponent.
10. (-3) Pocahontas 2-4
: After being Top 3 a few weeks ago, now has dropped down to 10th place. Is now 0-3 since his major trade. The reason for last week's loss was his big 3 bigmen were injured. They are getting healthier now but Cousins is still banged up and it doesn't seem like his team can figure out a way to win without his studs. Is almost in a must-win situation this week against bottom ranked Sizz though, if he can't figure out a way to win here it will be a huge blow.
11. (-1) Detroit Vs Everybody 2-4
: Durant returned to action however even that was not enough to get this team a win. He used to talk about his long win streak, but now it's time to talk about his long losing streak as he has now lost 4 in a row. You still have to give him the benefit of the doubt he was the defending champion and expect a big bounceback against the #13 ranked team.
12. (-1) NJ3 MVP @Navidsworld 1-4
: Drops to 1-4 for the season. I still consider him an underrated has tons of talent around LeBron James, but I guess James hasn't been James this season. Still one of the most talented bottom ranked teams and just needs to find a way to consistently start winning.
() Rameek's Year! 2-3
: Well on the bright side at least he ended his losing streak with a tie this week against a pretty tough opponent. Still hasn't won since Week 2 however. Needs his players to come alive especially Blake Griffin, otherwise he may not see another win in a long long time.
() Sizz 1-5
: Back to same old losing for this guy. Inactive.
Matchup of the Week
2 Keep Floatin 4-1 vs. 5 Team Fournicator 3-3
It's time to see what B4life's squad is all about, as it is 100% healthy for the 1st time this season. The Melo & Westbrook combination will be in full force along with the rest of his supporting cast healthy. This team looks as good or better as it did coming into the season when it was ranked #1. On the other end we have a newly recognized contender Statman's Team Fournicator. This young team put on one of the best performances last week dominating Iamgine who probably couldn't ever imagine losing 7-2. Is this team a real contender? We'll find out this week.
