    FCW's Week 1 Fantasy Outlook (11/1-11/5)

    A new season begins.

    Like most endeavors, the first couple weeks will be a “honeymoon period” where you get excited and put a lot of time and effort into your research to get the optimal lineup. It’s going to be in about weeks four through seven where you’ll either see or be part of a large participation dropoff in your league. Stay strong, and keep up with your Weekly FCW Outlooks and #FCWpodcast (returning soon!).

    We enter the first week of the #FCW24 season with many duals scheduled and several teams opting for the Dual & Tournament weekend combo. The majority of teams are participating in one of either the Clarion Open, Princeton Open, or Southeast Open. Some other non-D1 tournaments will be sparsely attended by D1 teams (like the Menlo Open or Maryville Open), but remember, only points can be scored against D1 competition.

    The first Weekly Outlook of the season is usually one of the more difficult to evaluate due to there usually being more questions than answers. Intrasquad scrimmages and wrestle-offs sometimes have outcomes “not by the book.”

    Take for instance last year at the Ohio State wrestle-offs where Bryce Hepner beat assumed starter Carson Kharchla. Questions quickly swirled over: who would be the starter? Would they put off making the decision until after some tournaments? Did the result not matter?

    In the end, Hepner used his available Redshirt and Kharchla continued as the starter. This season, we see some similar results around the sport, like Northern Illinois’ 125 Blake West losing in the scrimmage to teammate Nathaniel Genobana (either one is a good play this week, but who, will the starter be?).

    We are too far out to gauge what teams are sending what wrestlers to what tournament and just slightly out of reach of the weekly team press release for the upcoming dual(s). Keep the notifications on and check back often to the article comments for updates to tournament entries and confirmed starters!

    A reminder of some important rules:

    • Wrestlers entered at a weight must compete at that weight or else their results will not be counted. Wrestlers in the “Floater” spots can compete at ANY weight and accumulate Fantasy points.
    • A wrestler will LOCK on your roster at 12pm ET on the day of their first competition for the week. (refer to the SHP’s Week Preview)
    • Only results against D1 competition (starters, backups, and redshirts) will count towards Fantasy Points. 
    • Check your league settings to know how many add/drops are permitted per week.
