Guillotine Leagues: Week 5 Recap

Another quick recap before I head off for my cousin-in-law’s wedding. I’m travelling this weekend, so I’m posting earlier than usual in case I don’t get to work on Saturday. That means that unlike in previous week, these totals do not include the (usually modest) Friday night/Saturday morning free agency spending.

This week is 12 team week. There are 12 teams left, so you can evaluate your roster based on how it would look in a 12-team league. I almost said “evaluate your team,” but that would leave out your FAAB total, which is enormously important in guillotine leagues. A weak roster with a strong FAAB advantage could be a better than a strong roster with little FAAB left, at this point.

As expected, bidding continues to cool off. No bids over 600, only one between 500 and 600, one between 400 and 500, and four between 300 and 400.

Here are all the winning bids of $25 or more in my seven Fanball leagues:

Nick Chubb: 579, 221
Cooper Kupp: 461
Aaron Rodgers: 351
Keenan Allen: 335
Le’Veon Bell: 331
David Johnson: 326
Chris Carson: 299
Zach Ertz: 277
James Conner: 251, 200, 110
T.Y. Hilton: 236, 131
Damien Williams: 224
Sony Michel: 201
Mark Ingram: 196
Mike Evans: 189, 103
Carson Wentz: 178, 151
Todd Gurley: 175
Odell Beckham: 152
Darren Waller: 144, 104
Tyler Lockett: 109
Gerald Everett: 108
Robert Woods: 101
LeSean McCoy: 101
Austin Hooper: 100
D.J. Chark: 99
Courtland Sutton: 75
D.K. Metcalf: 75
James White: 67
Mark Andrews: 65
Adrian Peterson: 55
Gardner Minshew: 51
Hollywood Brown: 33
Jacoby Brissett: 31, 26
Sammy Watkins: 31
Alshon Jeffery: 28 (this was my bid)

Overall spending has been higher than I anticipated, which is good for those teams that have survived without spending too much. There are now far more teams with half their budget left or less (52) than with 501 FAAB or more (32), and significantly more teams with 200 FAAB or less (23) than with 801 FAAB or more (15). The breakdown by hundreds is as follows:

901 – 1000: 12
801 – 900: 3
701 – 800: 6
601 – 700: 7
501 – 600: 4
401 – 500: 9
301 – 400: 11
201 – 300: 9
101 – 200: 14
0 – 100: 9

My own totals in the 5 leagues that I remain alive in:
Rusty Blades: 919 (1 team has 1000 (but could be in trouble if it doesn’t get a TE today); nobody else has over 705)
Jacobin: 838 (2nd, 3rd and 4th teams have 808, 710 and 526; nobody else has over 500)
Green Knights: 888 (1st and 2nd place: 920 and 917 FAAB. Nobody else has over 600)
Sydney Carton: 947 (1st place 960; 3 other teams over 500, none over 750)
Bourgeoisie: 903 (3rd place after 986 and 940; no other teams over 700).

Good luck surviving Week 6!
