Batman takes the overall RTFFC lead


Greetings from RTFFC Headquarters and the desk of Commissioner Toe. We're traveling through the RTFFC leagues this year covering and highlighting a different league color each week. This week, we're honoring RTFFC White.

For those not familiar, RTFFC is the RealTime Fantasy Football Championship. Each RTFFC color includes 12 leagues, each league competes individually for prizes, and at the end of the season, the top 16 teams from those 12 leagues compete for an overall $10,000 prize. This season there are nine RTFFC colors.

The Flying Purple People Eaters (FPPE) team from Purple 3 (P3©) laid an egg in Week 5 with only 84.2 points. They are now 3-2 and dropped to the middle of the pack in their league. Like many teams last week, they were burned by having Will Fuller and his 53 points sitting on their bench. The league office pucker factor remains at Defcon 1, though.

Top Teams

We have a new overall RTFFC leader this week. B.Wayne's Team Batman in RTFFC White put up 197.2 points last week and now leads all RTFFC teams with 840.3 on the season. Averaging 168 per week, last week they were led by Christian McCaffrey's 47.7, Russell Wilson's 32.6, Chris Godwin's 31.5, and Leonard Fournette's 23.7. This is a very solid team, as they've got a 67-point lead on second place in RTFFC White and are 27 point favorites in their matchup this week. They also hold a slim five point overall lead on second place and last week's overall leader R.Mogard's Vike's 103 team.

Bottom Teams

Last place overall continues to be held down by a team from Red 9. They nearly doubled their weekly average by putting up 123.9 and a win in Week 5. They're now averaging a whopping 86 points/game. The all-disappointment team's Week 5 lineup was Aaron Rodgers 11.9, Sony Michel 21.3, Jeff Wilson 0.0, DeAndre Hopkins 15.8, Stefon Diggs 7.4, DJ Chark 36.4, OJ Howard 2.0, Zane Gonzalez 14.1, 49ers 15.0 . They are 19.5 point underdogs in Week 6 against a 2-3 team.

Waiver Gems and Gaffs

The waiver wire is pretty barren at this point in the season. Running backs with a pulse are worth their weight in gold, but there are still gems at other positions in some leagues. We are down from 88 winning bids over $400 last week to only six this week. Jaylen Samuels received most of the big bids on speculation that James Conner's ankle may not be fully recovered. Samuels promptly went out and scored 3.5 points and will miss the next month with an injured knee. Not such great news for the team that spent $637 on him.

A few leagues still had some gems available, so they're still out there, but they didn't come cheap. The most notable being Will Fuller ($333), Tevin Coleman ($370), Jordan Howard ($420), Dede Westbrook ($360), and Kyler Murray ($297).

Week 4 Wrap Up

Week 2 Wrap Up

Week 1 Wrap Up

Player Notes
Kareem Hunt Nov 16 10:13pm ET

Cleveland Browns RB Kareem Hunt will 'absolutely' continue to play a big role in the passing game, according to Jake Trotter of ESPN.

Fantasy Spin: Hunt has 13 catches for 90 yards in two games for the Browns, and he has become a safety valve of sorts for quarterback Baker Mayfield. Throw in a handful of carries, and he is worth considering as a flex option in PPR formats.

From TheHuddle

Robby Anderson Nov 16 9:53pm ET

New York Jets WR Robby Anderson has 13 total receptions in five games since QB Sam Darnold returned from a bout with mono.

Fantasy Spin: He actually had a big performance in Darnold's first game back, but Anderson has just eight catches for 97 yards in the last four games combined. A Week 11 matchup with Washington looks good on paper, but he is a big-play dependent flex option, at best.

From TheHuddle

DeVante Parker Nov 16 9:23pm ET

Miami Dolphins WR DeVante Parker's 'upside' may be limited in Week 11 because of the coverage skills of Buffalo Bills CB Tre'Davious White, according to Cameron Wolfe of ESPN.com.

Fantasy Spin: Parker had five catches for 55 yards and a touchdown in the first meeting with the Buffalo, but with Preston Williams sidelined, White and the Bills can focus all their attention on Parker. He is a touchdown-dependent WR3.

Kansas City Chiefs WR Sammy Watkins (groin) fully participated in practice Saturday, Nov. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

Fantasy Spin: Watkins has been targeted 27 times in three games since returning from injury and should have a solid role against the Los Angeles Chargers. He can be considered a No. 3 receiver or flex option in fantasy leagues.

From TheHuddle

Frank Clark Nov 16 4:23pm ET

Damien Williams Nov 16 4:13pm ET

Fantasy Spin: Williams is not dealing with an injury, so he should have a good chance to play in Week 11. He can be considered a No. 2 running back in fantasy leagues if he plays.

From TheHuddle

Patrick Mahomes Nov 16 4:13pm ET

Kansas City Chiefs QB Patrick Mahomes (knee) fully participated in practice Saturday, Nov. 16, and is not on the injury report for Week 11.

Fantasy Spin: Mahomes has thrown 18 touchdowns and one interception in eight games this season and continues to be one of the top quarterbacks in the NFL. He is a must-start option in all fantasy leagues.
