The regular season has drawn to a close, and MAN what a regular season it was! Plenty of drama, ups and downs, and LOTS of close games!
As we shift our focus on the playoffs (or the consolation bracket) I wanted to take a look at the updated League Legend Standings, and what the 8 teams remaining could still do to their overall points.
First, let’s look at the teams whose seasons are finished, and how many points they accumulated:
12th Place (1 point) – Brittney
Brittney’s 1 point moves her to 15 points overall, and she currently sits in 11th place.
11th Place (2 points) – John
John’s 2 points moves him up to 27 points overall, and he currently sits in 4th place.
10th Place (3 points) – Al
Al’s 3 points moves him up to 33 points overall, and he currently sits in 1st place still (though this is guaranteed to change).
9th Place (4 points) – Alia
Alia’s 4 points moves her up to 18 points overall, and she currently sits in 9th place.
There are still 8 teams left, and the overall standings could change A LOT depending on where everybody finishes. Here’s a look at what every team still alive can do to their League Legend ranking:
Ryan Jensen – Currently has 18 points
Jensen is in the consolation bracket as the #8 seed, having just sneaked by Alia in week 14. He can add 5-8 points to his overall total, meaning he will end the season with 23-26 Legend Points.
Stacy Swenson – Currently has 28 points
The defending champ is the #7 seed and will face off against Ryan S. for the 2nd week in a row. She can add 5-8 points to her overall total, meaning she will end the season with 33-36 Legend Points.
Ryan Swenson – Currently has 26 points
Ryan faltered in week 14 and couldn’t secure a playoff spot. He is the #6 seed in the consolation bracket. He can add 5-8 points to his overall total, meaning he will end the season with 31-34 Legend Points.
Jake Wilson – Currently has 24 points
A blocked punt return for a TD in week 12 ended up being Jake’s demise, but he still had a good season nonetheless. He holds the #5 seed in the consolation bracket and will face Jensen this week. He can add 5-8 points to his overall total, meaning he will end the season with 29-32 Legend Points.
Jason Gaydos – Currently has 28 points
Jason is in prime position to take over the title of League Legend. The only way he doesn’t become the new Legend is if he finishes the season 4th and Kyle finishes 1st. Jason can add 10-20 points to his overall total, meaning he will end the season with 38-48 Legend Points.
Christopher Baker – Currently has 15 points
Baker put together another one of his patented winning streaks to sneak his way into the playoffs. He has now made the playoffs in both of his seasons in the league. Baker can add 10-20 points to his overall total, meaning he will end the season with 25-35 Legend Points.
Becca Baker – Currently has 0 points
The rookie is already planning her path to the top of the Legends board! This week she will face off against her rival, (and husband) Baker, and with a win could guarantee herself at least 15 points. That would put her in a tie with 3-year vet Brittney and just behind 4-year vet Alia. She can finish with 10-20 Legend Points.
Kyle Adams – Currently has 19 points
Other than Jason, Kyle is the only other person who can take Al’s title away from him this season. He faces off against Jason for the 2nd week in a row, and if he can win the championship, and have Jason finish 4th, then not only will Kyle be the league champ, but he will also be the active League Legend (meaning he would get HEAPED with prizes at the draft, since he’s also the overall points champ!). Kyle can add 10-20 points to his overall total, meaning he will end the season with 29-39 Legend Points.
So, there you have it! It looks like there will be a lot of moving and shaking in the League Legend standings this year, and we are 100% guaranteed a new leader!
