After a thrilling second week of NBA basketball, fantasy owners now have a greater understanding of their place in the league’s hierarchy. Whether you’re an owner looking to make a major overhaul to stay competitive or simply calibrating your daily lineups with fringe moves, week 2 illuminated the strengths of the contenders and alerted the cellar dwellers of their weaknesses.
While there is plenty of basketball left to be played, the fantasy landscape is officially beginning to take shape across all the RCL leagues. With a shakeup in the top of the overall standings, everything is still in flux as the best teams attempt to separate themselves from the pack.
Check out how your teams stacked up in week 2 of the 2015-16 RCL Master Standings Table table, and here’s how the action went down in the second regular season week across our 22 RCL Leagues:
JB’s Random Commenter League – After going 8-1-0 last week, Carolina Cougars (14-4-0) jump to the top of the standings with The Big Fundamental one game back. RJ, last week’s leader, has fallen to third after going 5-4-0.
Slim’s RCL – Cronos’s Team (14-3-1) claimed the top spot in the standings after a near perfect 8-0-1 score in week 2. Propelled to victory by the standout play of Steph Curry, I would recommend sending him an Edible Arrangement or something small as a token of gratitude.
Adam’s RCL – While he may have fallen from the number one overall ranking in the RCL standings, Walkers Wingmen (13-3-2) goes back-to-back like he’s on the cover of Lethal Weapon staying atop the rankings for another week.
Kap vs. Razzball – DK Razzball! (14-4-0) jumps into first place after a 7-2-0. With a roster containing some of this season’s most popular waiver wire additions in T.J. McConnell, Kent Bazemore, Nemanja Bjelica, DK Razzball! looks to stay in first place after a matchup against Sniff & SCurry (13-5-0).
Khang’s RCL – After going 8-1-0 in week 2, Drew Holiday is tied for first place (and second overall in RCL standings) with Nick is Razzy at 15-3-0. DISCLAIMER: Holiday is not the Pelicans point guard. However, he is still pretty good at fantasy basketball.
Drew’s Premier Razzball League – With a three-way tie for first place, things are about to get real interesting with Oooooooooooooh (11-7-0) and Bearsloths (11-7-0) squaring off this week. Triangle Offense (11-7-0) will also be in contention for the top spot if the aforementioned matchup yields a low score. While it surely is exciting to be in contention for first place, just don’t mention your team name to Kobe Bryant quite yet.
Phil’s RCL – Tie for first place between Rob’s Team (11-7-0) and Rob.Covington.League (11-7-0) although starting your own league should really be the tiebreaker in this situation…
Sock Puppet RCL – At 15-3-0, mark lamb’s team and alligno are locked into a heated race for the top of the standings after tying for first place in week 1 as well. Also tied for second overall in the RCL standings, I think both teams have decided to eat the berries together so they can both win. Well played.
The Pete Nice Challenge RCL – Smokin’ Fine Cubans (14-4-0) claims sole possession of first places after going 6-3-0 in week 2. I also want to draw attention to the fact his Yahoo avatar to a picture of Mark Cuban smoking a cuban cigar.
Adam’s League #2! – After also going 8-1-0 in week 2, DunkeycornApocalypse (12-4-2) is now number one in the standings.
Khang’s RCL – Part Deux – Just like Kobe (14-4-0) is certainly doing Kobe Bryant things by climbing to first place. By channeling its inner Kobe, there’s no way this team is going to pass this spot onto another team.
JB vs. Slim – Mr Green Beans (14-4-0) has claimed the number one ranking after a 6-3-0 performance in week 2. Since green beans improve your cognitive functions, we’ll be monitoring him for the remainder of the year for PED use.
ATOWN RCL – So much excitement! Four-way tie for first place with GRIZZLE’s Great Team, One Bid Barker, Yappers, and James’s Superb Team all at 12-6-0.
JB’s surprise RCL – Surprise! I can view the link this time! Scotty G is in first place at 14-4-0 with JB and Team GIANT tied for second at 11-7-0.
EmasculatingHoopsLozengesRCL – With a 10-5-3 mark after week 2, Slimbo claims the top spot in the standings.
Charlie’s RCL – Three-way tie for first place with porno4mumu, Three’s Anfrenee, and Brixton Guns all tied at 12-6-0. Side note: I’ve played two of these three teams, so my exclusion is solely a product of scheduling. Or maybe I’m still really bad and have inflated their scores. We’ll see.
Kap vs. Razzball Round 2 – Gasol Gas Hole claims the top spot after a 8-1-0 performance last week. While it is not quite a homonym, I appreciate the originality of the team name!
