We now have two 5-0 teams for the first time in league history. We also have two 0-5 teams for the first time in league history. There have only been 4 other teams in league history that started 5-0. Sean started 5-0 in 2012 and went on to win Robbie Bowl II. Chase started 7-0 in 2013 and went on to lose Robbie Bowl III. Jake started 5-0 in 2017 and missed the playoffs at 7-7. Chase started 6-0 in 2018 and missed the playoffs at 8-6. Because of those missed opportunities, teams that start 5-0 technically have a historic rate of 50% to make the playoffs.
Jacob improves to 4-1, and has a 92% chance of making the playoffs. Only 1 team has ever started 4-1 and missed the playoffs, and that was Ryan in 2020.
We have three teams sitting at 3-2 (Ryan, Schweg & Aaron). These teams have a 56% chance of making the playoffs.
No teams are currently 2-3, so we look down at the 1-4 teams (Jake & Chase) and the 0-5 teams (Terrance & Jarrett). We have had 14 teams start 1-4, and 3 more teams start 0-5. None of those 17 teams made the playoffs, so if Jake, Chase, Terrance or Jarrett can pull it off, they’d be the first.
Five weeks into the season and still we have not hit the 1,000 total points mark. This is the fewest amount of points scored since the 2017 season.
Erik is on pace to score 1,616 points which would break the current record of 1,608 (Sean - 2020). Sean is on pace to score 1,593 points.
Teams scoring 100 points are currently 15-2 this season. That 88.2% win pct would be the highest for any season. Only Jarrett and Schweg have been unlucky enough to score 100 points and lose this year.
Erik is currently on a 7-game winning streak going back to last year. One more win would be tied for 3rd place for longest winning streak with Chase (Week 13-14, 2017; Week 1-6, 2018).
Sean’s 145 points are the highest of any game this season. The 249 combined points in the Sean-Schweg game were the most of any game this season as well.
Erik has now scored 100 points or more in 4 straight games. Terrance and Chase have yet to hit 100 points this season. Erik becomes the 2nd owner with 70 career 100 point games, and is just one game behind Terrance at 71.
Erik scored 128 points despite having two players score 0 (Tee Higgins & Younghoe Koa). That’s the first game this season where an owner had two players score 0. The last time it happened was on Sean’s team in last year’s 3rd place game.
Terrance is averaging 67 points per game and continues the worst start to a season in TPDFFL history. Not only is he 0-5, but he is on pace to score just 943 points, which is an erotic 69 points below the record of 1,012 (Jarrett - 2017).
It’s not all his fault…Jake has had the most points scored against him this season, which is a big reason why he has lost 4 straight games, and is on pace to have 1,573 points scored against him. That is 102 points above the previous record of 1,471 (Jarrett - 2018).
Sean’s team has been elite so far this season, but he has also faced some rather meek opposition. He is currently on pace to have 1,055 points scored against him, which would be 63 points below the current record of 1,118 (Aaron - 2013).
Ryan has now tied Jake for 2nd place all time in career wins (91). Sean has broken the tie and surpassed both Schweg and Terrance to move into 4th place in career wins (84).
Jacob has surpassed Terrance to move into 3rd place in career winning percentage (53.7%).
Chase and Aaron are tied for number of career losses with 75, despite Aaron playing two more full seasons than Chase.
Jarrett is now on an 8-game losing streak, which stands alone as the 2nd longest losing streak in league history. Erik holds the record of 10 from when he lost Weeks 3-12, 2018.
For the 2nd straight year, Terrance has started the season 0-5. Over the last 26 games, Terrance has a record of 6-19-1. With all of his records and accolades, this is by far the worst stretch of fantasy that Terrance has ever gone through.
While the rest of the league is averaging somewhere between 91.64 and 94.80 points scored against per game, Ryan continues his luck by having only 89.69 points scored against per game.
Schweg loses his 12th career game while scoring 100 points. He’s tied with 3 others for 2nd most.
Sean started his career with a league-best 24-8 record through the first two seasons in 2011-2012. He would remain above .500 until Week 5 of 2019 when his career win pct dipped below .500 for the first time. Sean has finally worked his way back to .500.
Jake has lost 4 games in a row for the first time since the last 4 weeks of 2019.
Ryan improves to 7-2 against Terrance in the regular season since 2018, but Terrance still leads the series 10-8.
Sean started three RBs for just the 6th time in his last 5 seasons, and it worked out as he rallied up 56 points from the 3 RBs.
Aaron wins his 4th straight game against Jarrett and improves his series lead to 10-5.
In the rematch of last year’s championship, Robbie Bowl XI, Erik defeats Jake once again and improves his series record to 13-9-1.
Jacob has now won 3 straight against Chase to take control of the series 9-6.
Sean wins his 5th straight game against Schweg and improves his series record to 12-8.
