Guillotine Leagues: Week 7 Recap

Week 7 is over, and guillotine leagues are now 10-team leagues.

I survived in all my leagues, again. For the second week in a row, I made the dumb mistake of failing to substitute Tyreek Hill for Dede Westbrook, but no harm resulted, since Dede ended up with more points this week.

The average score for the 5 teams that got chopped in my leagues was 55.97. If you scored 63 points, you were safe in all my leagues. Here is the average score of chopped teams in certain other weeks.

Week 2: 62.6
Week 3: 70.45
Week 5: 73.95
Week 6: 69.1

I got this information from e-mails sent to me by Fanball, but I did not get e-mails in weeks 1 and 4.

Budget Report

There are 70 teams left, of which a grand total of 13 (19%) have over 500 FAAB. If you take away my 5 teams, all over 700, then only 8 out of 65 teams (12%) have half their FAAB left. In comparison, 26 teams (37%) have less than 10% of their budget left. Here’s the distribution:

901 – 1000: 2
801 – 900: 1
701 – 800: 5
601 – 700: 1
501 – 600: 4
401 – 500: 5
301 – 400: 7
201 – 300: 11
101 – 200: 8
0 – 100: 26

Good luck surviving week 8, and Happy Halloween!
