There isn't much continuity if you stop the rankings as soon as you take losses.. Regardless of who writes them, people do appreciate the power rankings you know, the least you could do is man up after a horrible loss (which isn't easy to do, but is at least admirable) instead of just proving that you are nothing but a frontrunner.

Who said anything about stopping because of losses?

Week 5 Power Rankings



1. (+4) TysonChandlerParsons 3-1: Since the opening week loss, has simply been dominant. The scores have been 6-3, 8-1, and 6-3 in his favor. Prior to this week you could say he has been beating weak opponents, but he proved he is a serious contender with this latest win. Now the question is how long can he hold the top spot.

2. (+2) Keep Floatin 3-1: No Westbrook? Still no problem. It's amazing how well his team has been playing without his best player as he wins his 2nd straight. Westrbook's injury is the only reason he is not #1 right now but that may change soon.

3. (-1) Pocahontas 2-2: Had a dissapointing loss against one of the top teams. Still has had a very rough schedule the past 2 weeks being featured in the matchup of the week. Was able to deliver last week but didn't fare so well this week. Will be happy to know he is not in the matchup of the week this week and gets a breather.

4. (-3) Iamgine 2-1: Finally received his 1st loss ending his 3 week run as the #1 seed of the league. The loss was rather unexpected against one of the supposedly worse teams in the leagues. Either way, staying at top for 3 weeks is impressive and you still have to give this team respect. There is some concern though as he was able to get no wins in the past 2 weeks against not so great opponents.

5. (+4) Big Poppa PUMPIN 2-2: After a rough start to the season, back in the top 6 where he started in the pre-season rankings. It took some time but he was able to prove his team is a playoff contender knocking off 2 highly ranked opponents back to back weeks. The Lawson & Paul duo was the key to victory this week as they were too good at racking up the assists leading this team to victory.

6. (-3) DRAKE2-2: Was one of the many teams this week to get upset, he had a bad start and almost cameback and won but just couldn't finish. Has been on a W-L-W-L pattern, luckily for him it means a win next.

7. (-1) 313 2-2: After losing his 1st game ending his long win streak, defending champ losses another one. The losses however have been pretty close losing 5-4 each time, couldn't have asked for an easier opponent this week facing the last place team.

8. (+3) Slingers' Den 2-2: The manager switch has completely switched around this team. He has knocked of the previous #1 this week in maybe the biggest upset this year. Next week however is another top 2 opponent, can he do it again?

9. (+3) G-Train 2-2: Ended a 2 game losing streak with an upset win over the defending champion. Chris Bosh continues to anchor this team and looked like a legit 1st rounder so far. There is still much to prove for this team as he still hasn't crossed the Top 6, but a win this week against the #1 ranked team can change everything.

10. (+3) Team Fournicator 2-2: Had one of the biggest surprising wins last week demolishing's Rameek's squad. Another team with plenty of unknowns but just having Anthony Davis on his team has kept his team together. He still hasn't proven enough to be considered a playoff contender however a win this week can change everything.

11. (-4) Dream Team 2-2: Another team that was part of the upset train. This team led at the end of each day all week besides Monday morning in a heartbreaking loss. Has played well against good opponents but struggled against the bottom leaving this team in an unknown state. Fortunately he faces a top team this week.

12. (-4) Rameek's Year! 2-2: The impressive 2-0 start has become an ugly 2-2 now. Last 2 weeks haven't even been close and this week he goes against another tough team. Starting to get a few injuries and to be honest Aldridge and Griffin may not be enough to keep this team in the playoff race.

13. (+1) Sizz 1-3: Got his 1st win despite all the inactivity. Got to give him some credit for that. Still needs to be more active if he wants to climb any higher than the bottom 2.

14. (-4) NJ3 MVP @Navidsworld 0-3: Only team without a win enough said.

























Matchup of the Week

2 Keep Floatin 3-1 vs. 8 Slingers' Den 2-2


Storyline: Keep floatin has done more than just float through the start of the season without Westbrook as he remains one of the top 2 teams in the league. He will get a solid challenge this week with the new manager change DZW who is now 2-0 in the weeks he has managed. Can DZW pull of another shocking upset? Or will the task of taking down 2 top 2 opponents in 2 weeks be 2 much.

The biggest differences between the PR's.

PLR +3 (coming off 2 wins)
DZW +3 (coming off 2 wins)
Gtrain +3 (coming off a win)
---------------------------------------
Stat -4 (coming off a win)
Rameek -4 (coming off 2 losses)

The biggest differences between this PR and the actual standings

Sky +6 (coming off a loss)
DZW +3 (coming off 2 wins)
Pete -3 (coming off a loss)
Stat -6 (coming off a win)
Glove -6 (coming off 2 losses)

3 things stick out eh?

1. Compared to the other PR, Stat is 4 spots lower despite coming off a win.
2. Sky is obviously doing some side work with Glove. 6 spots higher in the PR, compared to his spot in the standings.
3. Stat, Pete and Glove are all much lower in the PR compared to the standings. Of those 3, Stat is the only one coming off a win.

Conclusion:

Week 6 Power Rankings



1. () TysonChandlerParsons 4-1: Maintains his top spot with yet another dominating win. Has outscored his opponents a ridiculous 27-9 since opening week. Amazing run for a league so competitive. And it hasn't been all against easy opponetns either, destroyed PLR and Sky's squad in this run. Made a few moves this week that hopefully will strengthen his team even more.

2. () Keep Floatin 4-1: Stayed floating without Westbrook and in fact went a unthinkable 4-1 in that stretch. Now Westbrook and Melo are healthy, look out. Only concern now is Dwight getting back to normal, with these 3 healthy is a no doubt championship contender and will be very tough to beat.

3. (+1) Iamgine 3-1: After recent loss got back to his winning ways with an easy win against an easy opponent. Strategy continues to work well for him and didn't receive much of a challenge this week. Going against a more respectable opponent next week.

4. (+1) Big Poppa PUMPIN 3-2: It wasn't the prettiest of wins but got the job done. That makes it 3 in a row. Has really just benefited with his team getting healthy after the rough 0-2 start and it still remains to be seen when he will take a sound loss with his team all healthy.

5. (+1) DRAKE 3-2: Got back in the win column continuing his W-L-W-L-W pattern. His team was much healthier than the week before and and his bigmen were simply too overwhelming for his opponent this week. Going against the bottom ranked team next week good chance to break out of the W-L-W-L pattern.

6. (+6) Dream Team 3-2: Bounces back to respectability with a dominating win against a previously Top 3 ranked squad. Led the entire week and never looked back finishing with a solid 6-3 win. Has played well against good opponents but struggled against bad ones. Hopes to break out of that pattern with one of the more bottom ranked opponents.

7. (-4) Pocahontas 2-3: Though the talent is all there just hasn't been able to get victories. It is kind of concerning now as he is now 0-2 since the big trade and unable to even get a lead last week. Granted has faced a tough schedule thus far and things will continue tough as he faces the #4 ranked team this week. Needs to beat one of these top teams to prove he belongs there though.

8. () Slingers' Den 2-3: Lost pretty badly this week but it was against one of the top teams. Now is 2-1 since taking over which is still pretty good considering he has faced currently the #2, #3, and #9 ranked teams during that stretch. There still is a concern of if he has enough talent to keep even this spot but hey as long as he continues to stay competitive he will stay here. Until then, will keep slingin.

9. (+1) Team Fournicator 2-3: Yeah losing effort this week but stayed with a solid good team all week long. His players actually produced pretty well but his opponent was just better. Unfortunately, he will continue to face tough opponents next couple weeks #3 and #2 ranked teams up next.

10. (-3) Detroit Vs Everybody 2-3: Its about that time he desperately needs Durant to come back. Losing to the #14 ranked team was unexcusable. Has made quite a few moves shaking up his roster again including 3 on Thanksgiving and now all that he is waiting for is Durant to comeback and lead the defending champion back to eliteness.

11. (+3) NJ3 MVP @Navidsworld 1-3: Congrats on the 1st win! Watching his team play you would have never guessed he has not won a game yet. His team has solid talent all over led by LeBron James and finally it results in a win. This happiness might be short lived however as he faces the top ranked team this week.

12. (-3) G-Train 2-3: Really did not stand a chance against the top ranked team. Has gotten 2 wins on the season but it seems he lost the heart & soul of his team last week in a trade. Can he still get victories? We will find out next week.

13. (-1) Rameek's Year! 2-3: Thats 3 straight losses making him the coldest team in the league. With Blake Griffin not playing upto level, this team just kind of looks lost. Made some moves this week in hopes of becoming competitive again, has a tough task though this week against #2 ranked squad.

14. (-1) Sizz 1-3: Only took a week for him to get back to the bottom. Actually kept it competitive this week but still there are some inactivity concerns and it should be a long season.






Matchup of the Week

4 Big Poppa PUMPIN 3-2 vs. 7 Pocahontas 2-3


Storyline: Big Poppa PUMPIN has gotten healthy after the 0-2 start and hasn't looked back since winning 3 straight. There are still some people in this league that doubt his team to be a true contender and a win this week could make those concerns dissapear. On the other hand, people expected Pocahontas to be an elite contender but so far has lived less to the mark. A win against a top 4 ranked team however could do the trick and bring this team back to life and on path for a pursuit of a title.

Week 7 Power Rankings



1. () 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.

2. () 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.

13. () 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.

14. () 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


Storyline: 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.

Also just interesting to see who has been the "Top" team week by week, will provide updates on this list throughout the season but here is how it looks now

Week 1: Keep Floatin
Week 2: Keep Floatin
Week 3: Iamgine
Week 4: Iamgine
Week 5: TysonChandlerParsons
Week 6: TysonChandlerParsons
Week 7: TysonChandlerParsons

Bird has had the best run this year so far at #1. Let's see when it ends...
