Week 5 was another crazy one, once again proving that picking the perfect lineup is never easy. The No. 1 QB, No. 2 WR and No. 1 K were started by no owners in NFL.com’s NFL Perfect Challenge.
That didn’t stop our online gladiators from battling to another amazing week of competition. Brohamma‘s 123.82 points won the week and helped edge him closer to the competition in the overall fight. It was Brohamma’s second weekly crown.
Consigliere’s Crooks scored 91.01 points to the lead the Chinstrap Ninjas Yahoo Salary Cap League. It was the second 90-point performance in three weeks for the Crooks, powering them into second-place in the overall ranks.
