WEEK 24 RANKINGS

  • The Top 10 teams remain the same from last week, including Minihane and the Big Screamin’ Honkers maintaining their spots following wins.  

  • Flux’s loss drops them from #11 to #14. The Family actually moved up a spot after their loss and you have to think the heated exchange between Big Ev and Kirk likely got them some fan buzz.  

  • Chicago moves up from #18 to #16 after beating Foreplay.

Honkers Category Advantages: MLB, Movies, Music   

The Honkers are the hottest team in the league coming off three straight wins since the addition of Klemmer and Gia. Robbie Fox has been on a monster run as of late and is now a Top 5 scorer in the league. They went from potentially missing the tourney to now challenging for the Crown.   

Their work is cut out for them as The Experts are an absolute wagon, beating their opponents by an average of 3.75 ppg. It is not just that they are winning, The Experts are dominating the competition.   

Obviously, most of the attention in the match will be on the Mariano Bowl as the two sisters will each be Doubling Celebrity Mashup. 

2-ZITI vs. 10-urMOM

(2) Ziti
- 5-3-0 Record  
- 13.75 Points Per Game 
- 2.50 Steals Per Game

-- Dave: 4.15 PPG 

Ziti Category Advantages: Snacks & Candy, MLB, NBA 

(10) urMom
- 3-3-0 Record

- 1.67 Steals Per Game 
- 83% Niche Success Rate  
- Rudy: 4.14 PPG 
- KFC: 3.87 PPG 
- Jack McCarthy: 3.64 PPG 

urMom Category Advantages: Celebrity Mashup, Movies, Music  

Our mid-week game is a Season 2 tournament rematch between Ziti and urMom. Their match last season was incredibly close and came down to two crucial moments: Clem’s last-minute “Sandies” pull and Rudy guessing “Meet the Klump’s” on a Doubled Movie question that Eddie then stole.  

Ziti has been on a roll since that game; meanwhile, urMom has had a weird Season 3. While urMom is always competitive, they could use a high-quality win to pad their resume going into the tournament,  

Food is the name of the game between these two teams, as KFC and Clem will have a good ol’ Snacking Off battle.

WEEK 23 PLAYERS OF THE WEEK

  • Chief wins his first Offensive Player of the Week of the season after a 9.67-point performance. While it has been a rough season for Chicago, Chief now ranks Top 5 in scoring.   

  • Defensive Player of the Week goes to Kirk; his Golf and NFL steals sealed the game for Team Minihane.   

  • Gia racks up another Rookie of the Week award as she remains a Top 10 scorer in the league.
