Each week I will be diving into the competition’s matchups and keeping you updated with how things are looking week to week. Before the upcoming gameweek, there will be a rundown of all the matchups in the league and any shenanigans that may have gone down between the two teams midweek. Which team will come out on top?
Week 4 – The Captains
Every week I kick things off with the captains and look at who they play. Week 3 saw Team 5 Yard Rush getting back on track by handing Captain America their latest L.
This week it’s the battle of the 0-3 teams. Team ‘Captain America’ (The FTLS Boys) Vs ‘JoshPattenden7’ (Josh). Both teams are falling behind and will not want to hit rock bottom with a 4th straight loss.
Europe’s captain ‘Team 5 Yard Rush’ (Stocks and Murf) will be going head to head with big rival ‘Mr America’ (Ktompkinsii – Kevin). The season has panned out slightly better for the 5 yard rush boys as they stand at 2-1. Mr America has found it tricky however as they have started the season 1-2.
Week 3 – Team Member Matchups
Not only have we got the battle of the 0-3 teams but this week, we also have the battle of the 3-0 teams. The US team of ‘GoingFor2DotCom’ (Geoff) on 3-0 now goes up against team Europe’s ‘Roaring Poulter’ (PittsyNFL) also sitting at 3-0. The predictions have this one going down to the wire.
Two 1-2 teams go against each other as ‘Benedict Arnold’ (Gary Haddow) for team Europe faces USA’s ‘Mericaaaaaa F*** YEAAA’ (DrakePFSA). BA managed to pick up their first win of the season last week and will look to keep that Streak going as MFY has now been defeated 2 weeks straight and won’t want to make it 3.
Another game and another matchup where both teams sit on the same winning ratio. Europe’s ‘AVFCJPS (James) faces USA’s ‘JSnakeDFF (Jacob) who both stand at 2-1 for the season. Both teams are coming off a good win in week 3.
The final matchup is between Europe’s ‘Marvellous McIlroy’ (Freddie ‘the franchise tag’ Hall) and USA’s ‘We Selected Scut Farkus’ (Shacknado – Brian). After a solid two weeks, MM picked up their first loss of the season. WSSF is also entering this matchup after losing in week 3.
Europe takes the lead
With almost a 3rd of the fantasy season gone already here are the scores after week 3.
Europe – 10
USA – 8
Bring on week 4
