This week in the sports writer fantasy football league the theme continues that anyone could win on any week and nothing is set. It mirrors what we’ve seen in the NFL so far this season.

Victory Formation (1-3) finally got their first win of the season keeping Poff for America (0-4) winless. Formation benefitted from another monster game from Devonta Freeman and a solid performance from Derek Carr to win this week. The two combined or 45 fantasy points. Poff for America once again saw big performances from Keenan Allen, DeAndre Hopkins, and Carson Palmer. However even with all those solid games it wasn’t enough to keep up with Freeman. Formation took this one 87-75.

Slammin Fortes (4-0) survived Tom Brady and Rob Gronkowski’s bye week, holding off Eazy G (2-2) who has dropped two games in a row now. Eazy G was taken off guard by Andrew Luck’s injury and didn’t get his backup in time, causing him to get no points from the quarterback position. Jeremy Hill had a big day, as did Brandon Marshall and Justin Tucker. Fortes managed to stay solid across the board though, getting double digit points from Andy Dalton, Jamaal Charles, Matt Forte, and Martellus Bennett. It was close, but Luck’s injury cost Eazy G this one, as Fortes slip past 80-70.

Amazing St. Patrick’s (2-2) and Here so I don’t get Fined (2-2) both had disappointing weeks, but in the end Fined walked out victorious. Patrick’s had three players that scored two or less points, while Aaron Rodgers and Steven Hauschka played up to their potential. Fined fell victim to Lynch being ruled out after it was too late to make a roster change. However she benefitted by Forsett gouging the Steelers D and Brandon McManus kicking plenty of points. Peyton Manning, Doug Baldwin, and Chris Johnson all played solid outings. It wasn’t high scoring, but Fined takes this one 65-49.

The Las Vegas Locos (4-0) also stayed undefeated this week against Team Morin (1-3). The Locos put a heavy amount of stock into the Bills offense, boasting Tyrod Taylor, Karlos Williams, and Dan Carpenter. The Bills offense struggled, as did the Locos because of it. Tyrod Taylor’s touchdown pass to Karlos Williams late in the game likely won him the match, coupled with Adrian Peterson’s performance he was in good position to win. Morin took the early lead with Sam Bradford having his best performance of the season. Travis Kelce’s fumble and Ronnie Hillman’s breakout hurt his team unfortunately. Locos took this one 75-53.

Mr. Sports Editor (2-2) had his two game winning streak broken by Breesus King of the Drews (2-2). We knew this game was going to be close when we went into it. Editor looked to Matt Ryan, Amari Cooper, and Panther’s Defense to bring his team to victory. Frank Gore, Jordan Reed and Latavius Murray disappointed on the other hand. Drews saw Phillip Rivers and Le’Veon Bell combine for 46 points, and that was enough to propel him to victory. Drews won this one, 77-66.
