There will be no repeat champion this year, but we have an historic occurence: the Blowfish/Blizzard/Blowfish franchise has become the first in league history with 5 championships. Congratulations to the Weavers on this milestone. The Blowfish lost the very first Fantasy Bowl, moved to Syracuse where they won 4 as the Blizzard, and have brought things full circle winning their 5th title as the Blowfish.
Boston beat the Keystone Longfellows 79-69, despite leaving Aaron Rodgers and his 40(!!!) points on the bench. Alvin Kamara and Robert Woods scored 17 each in a solid effort across the board. Keystone also had a strong game, but was without the top-scoring fantasy threat this year — Todd Gurley — who was out for an injury. The Longfellows could not plug the gaping hole Gurley’s absence left in their lineup.
The consolation game was also an upset, with Happy Valley knocking off Dallas 85-49. The Violence had huge games from Ben Roethlisberger, Chris Carson, and Kyle Rudolph who all scored more than 20 points.
Dallas has also relinquished its lead in the overall points race, now trailing Keystone by a mere 8 points (1280-1272) going into the final week. Both teams are still within reach of eclipsing the league record in total points (1335 – Syracuse in 2013).
