    We’ve hit the point in the season where all teams have played each other once each.

    Now we can move on to playing the other 5 teams in our own conference for a second time, before the playoffs commence.

    A reminder that we split the teams into the two conferences based on draft order.

    “Too” has the teams who drafted 1, 4, 5, 8, 9, 12

    “Serious” has the teams who drafted 2, 3, 6, 7, 10, 11


    This is an interesting time of the season to check the standings after we’ve all played each other an equal number of times.

    Shoutout to @stowie who has the highest points scored against him across all three leagues. The defending Premier League champion has been up against it all season!

    On the other side of things, @Lethal has had the least points scored against them across all three leagues!

    @James84 easily has the best record across the leagues, still being undefeated!

    We don’t have any winless teams, however two are on 1-10, with one of them @costak almost breaking through for their 2nd win (in a row too) this week with a 13 point loss! Despite being just 1-10, there are 9 other teams who have scored less than this team across the leagues. The other team 1-10 is @headmandude who seems to have checked out after the disappointment of missing his draft due to new parenthood responsibilities and drafting Lamello with pick #4 – even on a per-game basis he’s not even top-25 so far, and we know he’s missed most of the season. Headmandude is also the lowest scorer across the three leagues, averaging less than 1000 per round.

    @Sparks is the leading scorer so far, averaging a whopping 1356.7 per round!

    @crossy has made the most acquisitions so far, making 50 of a possible 51 moves! The only matchup where he didn't max out his acquisitions was in round 9 where he lost for the first time since round 1, so we probably wont see it again.


    Here are links to the standings for each league at present:

    Some really close games, and some huge upsets. Seven teams from Division 2 have won through to round 2! Added to eight Premier league teams and just three Division 1 teams.

    The highest score for the week went to Rev with 1743.1 who beat Jmulldihno.
    The Royals was the highest scoring loser, scoring 1451.2 and losing by 10.6 points to HEAVER. This was also the smallest margin across all games.
    stowie was the lowest scoring winner, scoring 1289.2 and beating Eggrobber by 207.1 pts.
    The lowest score for the week was 640.3 by headmandude who was more than doubled by his opponent crossy. This was also the largest margin across all games, being 683.2 pts.
    The second smallest margin was when nicksnow beat dabombers by 34.4 pts.
    The second largest margin was when bgt2110 beat WingMan by 587.7 pts.

    Here is the fixture for round 2:

    Only three of these nine games are between two teams from the same league.

    Last time they met:
    James84 defeated Jacob Doole in D2, 1457-1294 in matchup 4
    karlos defeated Esther in D2, 1355-1042 in matchup 7
    HEAVER defeated Rev in PL, 1236-1064 in matchup 10


    Good luck to everyone, and a reminder that only the top 8 highest scoring winners in round 2 progress on to round 3.

      @The Royals would have beaten 8 of the winning teams !

      Remember all round 1 matchups were seeded and this game was 1st from Premier vs 12th from Div2 - at the time the draw was made. So not really surprising that it brought the biggest winning margin!

      Sums up my season so far, injuries have plagued me.
      That's what I get for drafting returning injured players.
      Need to start racking up the W's for a strong finish and move up to div1 haha

      Man this season has been brutal on me. Lost my first 2 games by about a combined 2 points including a stat correction loss after thinking I’d won. Also a 13 point loss and many close losses. All this with lamelo ball out for ages and Cunningham lost early. 1-10 start. Now suddenly top scorer past 2 weeks haha that’d be right.
