The four playoff teams have been set. Sean Gomez (9-5) Aaron Vaiden (9-5) Erik Schwegler (8-6) Jake Wilson (8-6)
The rest of the standings are: 5. Ryan Jensen (7-7) 6. Ryan Schwegler (7-7) 7. Jacob Vaiden (6-8) 8. Terrance Hall (6-8) 9. Jarrett Kimberly (6-8) 10. Chase Dooley (4-10) Sean’s team shatters his old single season scoring record of 1,548 points by putting up a ridiculous 1,608 points. That is an average of almost 115 points per game. Aaron has won a league high 4 division championships, while Sean is now tied for 2nd with 3 division championships. Sean has only been to the playoffs 3 times, but each time has been a division champion. Twice as the #1 seed and once as the #2 seed. This is Aaron’s 5th playoff appearance. He was the #1 seed in 2012, 2013 and 2015 and the #3 seed in 2018. Week 14 was the 3rd highest scoring week of the season. It’s an entirely new playoff field, with none of the playoff teams from 2019 making it this year. The longest playoff drought in league history ends at 7 seasons with Sean finally making it back for the first time since 2012. The longest active streak for missing the playoffs is Chase, who has not made the playoffs in 4 straight seasons. Erik finishes 2020 as the highest scoring owner with 13,195 points. Every owner saw an increase to their season average for points against. Sean’s career average of 10.63 points per game per WR start is a full point above the 2nd place mark of 9.63ppg. Erik makes the playoffs for the 2nd time in his career, with the only other appearance being in 2017 when he won Robbie Bowl VII as the #2 seed. Jake makes the playoffs for the 5th time in his career. He was the #3 seed in 2011, 2013 and 2015 and the #2 seed in 2016. Jacob had the 3rd most points ever scored against this season with 1,437, or almost 103 points per game. Ryan becomes the 3rd team in history to start 4-0 and miss the playoffs. Chase becomes the 16th member of the dreaded “4-10 or worse” club. Sean becomes the 3rd team to lead the league in scoring in 6 weeks in the regular season The other two teams went on to win the Robbie Bowl while leading both playoff weeks in scoring. Ryan broke the record for most adds in a single season with 65. Schweg’s old record of 64 has stood since 2012. He also spent the most money in a season in league history with $110.25. Jake extends his record of consecutive wins vs one owner (Ryan) to 12 straight wins. Currently, the second longest active streak is Terrance’s 6-game winning streak over Jarrett. Jake’s 16 career wins against Ryan are now tied for the most with Ryan’s 16 wins against Erik. Terrance’s win % of 77.8% against Jarrett is now tied for best with Jake’s 77.8% win against Schweg.
This year had the fewest number of trades in any season (5). This season opened with 4 straight weeks of over 1000 points scored, followed by six sub-1000 point weeks, but week 11 finally got back above the threshold with 1012 points. Thanks, Taysom Hill! Sean is still on pace to break the all-time scoring record he set back in 2018. That team missed the playoffs, and Sean’s team now is currently outside of the playoff picture, sitting in 6th place. In Sean’s 6 wins, he averages a margin of victory of 50 points. He becomes the first owner to win two games by 70 or more points in a season. The 73 point loss for Terrance is the worst defeat in his career. There are seven different teams that have led the league in scoring this season. Six of those teams did it once. Sean has done it 5 times. Sean now has 69 wins. Erik snaps a 5-game losing streak against Ryan with a dominant win (132-90) which was reminiscent of the last time Erik beat Ryan: Erik’s semifinal win en route to his Robbie Bowl VII Championship 132-73. Ryan has scored just 1 point from the TE position in 3 of the last 4 games. Aaron’s 48 point victory over Chase was the largest margin of victory in their series, and it sends Chase to 0-4 in November this year, and 9-25 in the month all time. Chase’s 26.5% win percentage is the worst by any owner in any month while Aaron’s 66.7% win percentage in November is the best by any owner in any month. Jarrett and Jacob have played at least twice every single year, and with Jarrett’s week 11 victory, they split the season series just like every other year except for 2013. Jake extends his record to 14-4 against Schweg. It is the 2nd most lopsided rivalry in league history. If there is one thing Jake can do, it is beat the Ryans in the league. If it weren’t for his victories over Ryan & Schweg, Jake never would have had a winning season. His combined record against the Ryans is 31-10. Schweg has not had consecutive victories since weeks 5-6 of 2019. Ryan Succop is the only player that has been started in all 11 games this season. Playoff odds after week 11: 8-3 Teams: 10/10 100% 6-5 Teams: 6/16 38% 5-6 Teams: 4/22 18% 4-7 Teams: 0/17 0% 3-8 Teams: 0/6 0%
Sean scores 156 points in Week 9, and has now scored the 2nd most points in a 2-game span with 299 points (Terrance scored 310 points in Weeks 7-8, 2014). It was the 3rd most points scored in a single game. He is currently on pace to score 1,592 points, which would break his own record of 1,548 points. He will need to average 105 points per game in the final 5 games to set the record. Sean has now led the league in scoring in 4 out of 9 weeks this year. No one else has done it twice. Only Erik’s 2017 championship team led the league in scoring 4 times through the first 9 weeks. This was the also the first time anyone had two players score 30+ points in 2 consecutive weeks. This was also the largest gap between the top scorer of the week and the lowest scorer of the week (114 points). At the beginning of this past week, 11 of the 15 players on Ryan’s roster were either hurt, on a bye week or had COVID leaving him just 4 active players: Josh Allen, David Johnson, Antonio Gibson & Justin Tucker. He added two WRs, a TE, a D/ST and also traded for a WR in order to field a full lineup. Terrance has scored the fewest points in the league, but has also had the fewest points scored against him. Schweg snaps a 4-game streak of scoring under 100 points. Erik & Jake’s game totaled 112 points, the 3rd lowest scoring game of all-time, and the lowest scoring game we’ve seen in over 3 years. Erik gets the season sweep over Jake for the 2nd straight year. In every game this year, Jake has either had more than 100 or less than 80 point scored against him. Erik has scored 12,641 points and has had 12,641 points scored against him. What is going on with Chase and the month of November? He falls to 1-13 over the last 3 years, the worst record in any month in any 3-year span. Sorry to keep beating the drum on this one Chasey, but that November win % dips down to 28.1%. Teams scoring 100 or more points are 30-10 this season, the 2nd lowest win % in a season (75%). Teams were 50-17 in 2018 (74.6%) Jacob passes Jake (again) for career win %, and Sean passes Chase (again) for career win %. Playoff Odds: Teams that are 6-3 (Aaron): 80% *Important note for Aaron looking ahead to week 10: Teams that are 7-3 make the playoffs 100% of the time. Teams that are 6-4 only make the playoffs 50% of the time. Teams that are 5-4 (Sean, Jacob, Erik, Jake, Ryan): 33% Teams that are 4-5 (Terrance, Jarrett): 32% Teams that are 3-6 (Schweg, Chase): 9%
