2018 Starters

17 teams from across the Association were nominated for the 2017-18 Pro Bowl Tournament and voting was opened up to all 106 Association teams.  Each team was elligible to cast a ballot which allowed a vote to be cast for 3 individual Nominees, or a write-in candidate(s), and ballots from AF Registered Teams had the option of casting a 4th vote.  Teams were allowed to cast votes for themselves or to vote for the same team with multiple selections.  Teams were allowed to cast a vote(s) for a write in candidate with any or all of their ballot selections.  Votes were tallied on a points system:

  • 1st ballot selection = 1.5 points
  • 2nd ballot selection = 1 point
  • 3rd ballot selection = .5 points
  • AF Registered Team (AFRT) ballot selection = 1 point

Once voting was closed, all ballot selections were totaled based on the scale above, and the top 6 teams have been named Starters for the 2018 AF Pro Bowl Tournament.  The remaining teams, in descending order have been named Alternates should any of the 6 starters decline the invitation.

44 of 106 elligible teams cast a ballot for this season’s 17 nominees. Red Text indicates team is a write in candidate.

 

Suspension Freaks – Coming in as the consensus #1 selection with a total ballot score of 21.5 points, including 6 first ballot selections and another 6 made by AF Registered Teams, and  representing the Legion of Defense, Coach Shane Rocks’ Bouncing Tigers debuted at AF#1 on 2017’s first edition of the Top 25, and carried a sub-100 PR Score for more weeks than any other team in the Association.  The Freaks finished the 2017 Regular Season with a disappointing 6-6-0 record in the Legion’s top-tier division, however 4 of those losses were by a margin of just 15.5 points combined, and 3 were to fellow nominee Insane Clowney Posse.  They managed to qualify for the League’s Points Wid Card playoff slot with their 1st place season points total of 762 points – 14% higher than the 2nd place team and 41% higher than the league average.

 

Kizzys Krackbacks – A 2017 rookie franchise in the Fantasy Addicts Leaguemeigzoh’s Krackbacks got more first ballot votes (7) than any other team in the field of nominees, and totaled 17.5 points in the voting.  The Krackbacks took the league by storm from the very start, scoring the High Score of the week 6 times and the Offense of the Week 5 times.  They finished the Regular Season as the Addict’s Ladder Champion with an 11-2-0 record and headed into the playoffs, as the AF#12 and the league #1 in total scoring.  They added another pair of wins in the Addicts playoffs to come away with the League Championship.

 

 

Los Angeles Dragons – Tying with Kizzy’s Krackbacks with 17.5 points, in this year’s voting,  the Dragons have been oned of the biggest stories of the 2017 season in the Association, Coach Joey Drakor’s  Dragons won World Bowl IV for the League Championship of the World Fantasy League in 2015, then finished 10-3-0 in 2016, before jumping to the IFFL this season in a quest to be the first Association team to win a championship in two separate leagues.  Since joining the IFFL, they have been almost unstoppable, finishing the Regular Season as the League #1 with an 8-3-0 record – 2 of their 3 losses to playoff teams – they also finished #1 in scoring with 2092 points. They beat the New Orleancss VooDoo in the two-week Americas Division Championship, and advanced to the IFFL’s Final Four.

 

Arizona Firebirds – Coach Crash’s franchise in the Super 16, the Arizona Firebirds came in fourth in voting with a total score of 15.5 points.  They finished the S16 Regular Season with a 10-3-0 record for the #1 seed and were ranked as AF#3 on the AF top 25.  They were the #1 scoring team in the league and won the S16 West Division Title, with 3 of 4 teams ranked in the Top 25, perhaps the toughest division in the Association this season.  The Firebirds became a Gold Star Team in the 2017 season reaching their 50th career win with their final win, and went on to win the Super 16 Championship by beating fellow Pro Bowl Starter Birds of Prey by just 1 and a half points.

 

 

Birds of Prey – Coach Roger Tripp’s juggernaut in the Super 16 was the only veteran All-Pro team in this year’s round of nominees, and are the Champions of the 2015-16 Pro Bowl Tournament.  This year, coming in fifth in voting with 14 points, just a fraction behind the Arizona Firebirds who they’ve been neck and neck with throughout the 2017 season in just about every way.  BoP won the South Division Championship for the fourth time in 5 seasons this year, finishing the Regular Season as the AF#15 with a 10-3-0 record and a first round bye in the playoffs before going all the way to the Championship where they lost by a point and a half in fantasy overtime (by stat correction) to Arizona.  The Birds are a Gold Star Team and currently have more career wins than any team in the Association.

 

 

Finkle is Einhorn – run by the Association’s very own Stats Director, Coach mattoaks (AF Registered, but not yet in the system) the AF#8 Finkle is the inaugural season Champion of the Suicide Squad Racing Society’s Points Race League with 3228 points.   They led the field through 11 of 17 weeks and had the #1 score for a league high 6 of 17 weeks on their way to the checkered flag.   The second and third place teams in the league – both also Pro Bowl Nominees – made things competitive at times, but by all measures, Finkle was thouroughly dominant through all of 2017.

public enemy logo lrgrSecond place in Pro Bowl voting with 11%, Public Enemy was second to none on the year’s final AF Top 25, ending the 2015 season ranked  #1among all90 qualifying teams in Associated Fantasy leagues, finishing with a .820 VsL% (100-32-0 (56-3)  Their 10-2 regular season was the best in the Legion of Defense, with 1 of their 2 losses by just 1 point.  They wnet through the Legion’s Championship Tournament round robin handily, qualifying for the Legion Bowl which they won by a devestating 105-31.  The Enemies dominated just about every statistical category in the LoD in 2015, including the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th highest scores of the year; Legion teams only eclipsed the 100 point mark 5 times, and 4 of those times it was Public Enemy.  In addition to the Golden Skull Trophy they picked up for the Legion Championship, they won 4 Defense of the Week Awards, the Defense of the Year Award, the Sack Leader Award, the Interception Leader Award, and the Defensive Scoring Award.  They broke the league record for most IDP sacks in a game with 6 in Week 2 (which they matched again in Week 10), broke it again with 6.5 in Week 7, and then broke the record once more with 8 in the Legion Bowl.  They twice came within 1 interception of the league’s single game interception record, tied the league’s single game defensive scoring record, and, with 72 season defensive scoring points, blew away the previous league record of 54

 

monkeys on ecstacy - thin2015 champion in AF’s flagship Fantasy Addicts league and 3rd overall in Pro Bowl voting is monkeys on ecstacy.  While they only sport a misleading 9-4-0 regular season record, they played 4 of those matches against another Pro Bowl team, winning in 2 of the 4, and were 6th overall in Associated Fantasy‘s final 2015 ranking of 90 qualifying teams, with a season VsL% of .720 (79-38-0 [18-0]), and in addition to winning the 2015 Addicts Championship, also won Addict’s defensive scoring title for the season, the Defense of the Year Award and posted the highest season points total for the consecutive year.  It is their second Addicts Championship in four seasons, with four playoff appearances in the same span, with a 5-2 lifetime playoff record, and an all-time record of 42-18.  The monkeys hold nearly half the records in the Fantasy Addicts record books, including the 1st, 2nd, 4th, and 5th positions on the single game scoring list, and an 18 game regular season winning streak that lasted from Week 5 of 2013 to Week 9 of 2014

 

 On The Rox2The majority of the records in the Fantasy Addicts league that aren’t held by monkeys on ecstacy, or held by On The Rox, the 4th 2016 Pro Bowl starter, and the second team in the innaugural year of the Tournament to come out of the Addicts league.  Tied for fourth in the voting, Rox comes in ahead of the 5th team by virtue of their end-of-2015 Vsl%, coming in 10th overall of 90 qualifying teams in AF’s Week 17 Top 25 with a .710 (77-40-0 (16-2) record.  They posted a 10-3-0 record in 2015, winning the regular season and ladder schedule in the Addicts, and split 2 games to 3 with fellow Pro Bowl team monkeys on ecstacy, having played them an unprecedented 5 times including in the Addicts Championship game.  They lost that Championship Game to the monkeys, and are still searching for their first Addicts League Championship.  Despite having an all time record of 38-19, Rox is only 2-4 in league post season play.  Still, they have finished as a League top 3 in 3 of 4 years, won the regular season twice, and in 2015, were the League’s Offense of the Year.

 

 jaggerHailing from AF‘s upstart league, the Fantasy Circus in their inaugural season is the league’s 2015 Ringmaster:  jagger.  The League Champion was the main attraction under the big top in 2015, going 13-1-0 through the regular season, rocking out a first place seeding through both Round 1 and Round 2, they followed up that stadium tour with a 2-1 run through the Championship Round for an incredible 15-2 total record to kick of their first season in the books.  jagger also led the Circus in scoring and total WAB points earned all season long until suffering a 10 point outing in Week 17, and dropped to second place once they already had the title locked up. They placed at 19th overall on the final rankings list of 2015 (of 90 qualifying teams) with a VsL% of .650 (101-53-0 (5-4)

 

New Orleans Black HatsIn the Dixie League, the New Orleans Black Hats coasted into the Dixie League Championship Series, heavily favored after posting a 2015 divisional record of 12-1-1 and an equally impressive record of 41-13-1 in double-header series play, but the Dixie Cup eluded the Black Hats for the second consecutive season (playing as the New Orleans Breakers in 2014), losing an upset sweep in two games.  Besides the back-to-back championship losses, the New Orleans squad also lost in the quater finals of the 2013 season.  Though without a Championship in their trophy case, they have a lifetime win percentage of .710 stretching across 5 seasons of play under 3 different rules formats.  The ended 2015 with a VsL% of .770 (41-13-1 (21-4) to rank 4th overall of all 90 Associated Fantasy teams .
