    FCW's Week 5 Fantasy Outlook (12/1 -12/4)

    Lock Haven 174 lber Tyler Stoltzfus (photo courtesy of Sam Janicki; SJanickiPhoto.com)

    Maybe it's fitting that one of the slowest weeks in competition for the season occurred during the week of the most gluttonous holidays. Most of it, a snoozefest. Either by the lack of usual duals and tournaments, or because of the tryptophan. Maybe both.

    That doesn't mean it didn't have its moments. Penn at Iowa lived up to the billing (to me at least), and some fantasy wrestlers made some strides up the leaderboards. Unless you picked up in the transfer portal correctly, chances are your Week 4 scoreboard looked something like mine: a win, 6 Fpts to 3 (take THAT, JR Hewitt!). But there were a few standout stars on the tournament circuit.

    174 Tyler Stoltzfus of Lock Haven went with four straight pins to get the high weekly score of 24 Fpts. Followed by his teammate (and probably practice-partner) 165 Avery Bassett, who himself had three pins for 18 Fpts. Tied for second, with three pins of his own (and a win by MFF), was 184 James Lledo (PITT) and Cornell's 149 JJ Wilson was one point shy with 17 Fpts in five matches.

    In the overall Fantasy Wrestler Standings, 285 Mason Parris (MICH) added a pin to bring his season total to 41 Fpts, but slipped from #1 to #4 thanks to some tourney performances by 149 John Millner (APP) and 157 Peyten Keller (OHIO), both with 45 Fpts but Millner having the better Points-Per-Match of 4.5 to 3.5, respectively. Army's 125 Ethen “the C is Silent” Berginc had 5 matches in Week 3 (18 Fpts) which helped him keep the #3 spot, despite not wrestling in Week 4.

    On to Week 5

    It's Vegas week, which means for another year I get to post a favorite song of mine (with the star of the show, direct from the bar - Dean Martin).

    Of last year's Top-20 Teams, 18 will be in competitions this week as well as 73 of the 80 D1 teams. Most teams will be at CKLV (10 of last season's Top-20 teams and 33 of the D1 teams).

    Cliff Keen Las Vegas has become one of the top tournaments during the regular season, even if some teams decide to Triple-S (Strategically Sit for Seeding) or because of injury or because, who the hell knows why.

    Outside of CKLV, a couple other tournaments to keep an eye on include the Cougar Clash and Patriot Open. Both these tournaments should have a good number of D1 schools participating to allow for a good Fantasy scoring opportunity. Other than the typical duals, The Garden State Grapple (EIWA/Big Ten Challenge) will be throwing down in Taylor Ham country, which will give those selected teams two duals on the day.

    Tournament entries continue to update the closer to registration cut-off/day of the event, and we don't want to make an "ass out of u and me" with teams and entries, so be sure to check back and turn those notifications "ON" for our updates and news.

    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 Master Team Schedule, Week 2 Visual, or SHP's Weekly 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.
