eboK’s 2K Team Rankings

Making this team list to help owners decide what team to pick. Was gonna add graphics to this List but this shit is ass 🙁


Giannis is THANOS with snipers & locks all around him. Giannis is arguably the best player in 2K history…combine that with amazing role players & Bucks are unstoppable. You can play 5 out with Giannis running the show, run pick & roll/pops with Giannis or just let him dead zone. Either way, you lose.

Jrue Holiday
Grayson Allen/Pat Connaughton
Khris Middleton
Bobby Portis JR.


This team is very strong since Lebron has HOF Dimer & Bullet. HOF dimer allows AD & Dwight to green every three. With that being said you put AD at the 4 & Dwight at the 5 & you’ll lock up the paint + horse everyone. Westbrook still has all his badges & greens every shot + Melo is a SNIPER. Lakers have ELITE defense & offense…theres no weak points at all. Lakers are one of the few teams that can go toe to toe with the Bucks. AD on Giannis 🙂

Russell Westbrook
Carmelo Anthony
Lebron James
Anthony Davis
Dwight Howard


Nets are a well rounded team with 3 ELITE ball handlers in Ben Simmons, KD & Kyrie. the tricky thing to this team is wether you wanna use Ben or Drummond at the 5 or try to play both at the same time. Ben is good at center but he can easily get horsed. Drummond on the other hand might be a top 5 center on the game. all though this team is stacked with talent you just cant draft anyone to play with this team. Someone like Kuhrow on Ben Simmons is a real sheet shitter. To use this team to its full potential you need 4 top tier players in the league on 1 line.

Ben Simmons
Kyrie Irving
Joe Harris
Kevin Durant
Andre Drummond

Kyrie Irving
Seth Curry
Joe Harris
Kevin Durant
Andre Drummond/Ben Simmons

4. 76ers

76ers have the 3 things you want on its 2k. An ELITE ball handler, a DOMINANT lock & a big. Thankfully for the 6ers Embiid is the best center on the game, Harden is top 5 ball handlers, & thybulle is up there for one of the best locks. Then you have Tobias who will green every shot along side either Danny Green or Tyrese Maxey at the 2. 76ers are loaded & you would have to try very hard to lose with them. I could see someone messing around with a lineup of DeAndre Jordan at the 5 & Embiid at the 4…could be GLITCHY.

James Harden
Danny Green
Matisse Thybulle
Tobias Harris
Joel Embiid


Clippers are very good & strong team but they can be difficult to play with. I say this because Zubac is a decent center but he has 26 speed turning him into the Croatian Zombie. So with that in mind you NEED a dominant Kawhi & Paul George. kawhi is a MEGA LOCK & will clamp anyone he guards. Paul George has good handles, can green, poster & play ELITE defense. So you would have to find the right balance of VBA players to make this team work. With the best lineup I posted you would have Paul George guard rim. He has all the defensive badges you need at center & he’s big enough to where he can do it. 🙂

BEST Lineup
Norman Powell
Paul George
Kawhi Leonard
Nicolas Batum/Marmus Morris SR.
Robert Covington

Norman Powell/Luke Kennard
Paul George
Kawhi Leonard
Robert Covington
Ivica Zubac


Grizzlies & Clippers are interchangeable in my eyes. Whatever team suits your VBA playset is the one you should go with. Grizzlies have everything you need with an ELITE ball handler in Ja, 2 locks in JJJ & Brooks followed by an ELITE horse Steven Adams. bane is also a complete sniper…this team is so souped & loaded. JJJ can guard ball & the rim dude is insane.

Ja Morant
Desmond Bane
Dillon Brooks
Jaren Jackson JR.
Steven Adams


Warriors are a hard team to play with but they are very good in the right hands. You need someone who can 3 hunt effectively with Curry while also having great role player users. Looney is ASS & Wiseman isn’t much better. Klay & Wiggins r souped but Draymond is VERY hard to constantly green with. So if you cant meet all the requirements to make this team good then you should stay away from the Warriors.

Steph Curry
Klay Thompson
Andrew Wiggins
Draymond Green
James Wiseman/Kevon Looney


The Suns are good but at the same time you need the right users for them to work. 1. CP3 is solid but is hard to use on offense since he is short, has a slow shot & doesn’t have good finishing badges. 2. Ayton is solid but Mcgee is essentially the better center on 2k. Ayton can green mids & threes plays good enough D & can horse a little but Javale is just a super horse & is athletic af. 3. Mikal bridges nor Cpu is a LOCK LOCK. Bridges is fine but he isn’t ELITE by any stretch. 4. Booker has shit handles so he’s a spot up shooter. So what I’m saying is if you don’t have ELITE users then pick an easier team to use.

Chris Paul/Landry Shamet
Devin Booker
Mikal Bridges
Cam Johnson
Javale McGee/Deandre Ayton


Hawks have an ELITE ball handler in Tare Young & an ELITE center in Clint Capela. The thing the Hawks are lacking is a perimeter lock. De’Andre Hunter is a decent lock but you would much rather have the 2k23 Hawks roster with Dejounte Murray. Kevin Huerter is a sneaky good player & John collins is very solid at the 4. The Hawks are very good if u get an ELITE ball handler & ELITE center. This team is can be a better version of the Warriors if played correctly.

Trae Young
Kevin Huerter
De’Andre Hunter

John Collins
Clint Capela

10. JAZZ

The Jazz are a very interesting 2k team. They have a good ball handler in Donovon Mitchell & the best rim protector Rudy Gobert. Royce O’Neale, Mike Conley & Donovon Mitchell all play solid perimeter defense. Rudy Gay has ALWAYS been GLITCHY in 2k so you start him at the 4. Even tho I have the Jazz at the 10th ranked team, I could easily see someone win the Finals with them. They’re just a super braindead team that can beat almost anyone.

Mike Conley
Donovan Mitchell
Royce O’Neale
Rudy Gay
Rudy Gobert


  3. CAVS
  4. HEAT
  5. BULLS
  6. MAVS

Sorci’s ECF/WCF Finals Predictions


With the VBA season coming to an end, 4 teams are left fighting for a title. I take a quick dive into who I think will win the conference finals matchups & why.


The Milwaukee Bucks take on the Brooklyn Nets

Brooklyn has made it this far with an unorthodox line up but it’s clearly been working in their favor. The bucks in my opinion should be able to take this one, they’ve been consistent all season and have the BUCKS, but a 5 game series between two of the best NBA teams in the game can certainly go either way. The nets don’t really have a game plan, they’re play style is a lot of movement and brain dead drives, while the bucks definitely have more of a strategic play style, led by Giannis. With that being said I think the Bucks win 3-1 with ease.


The Memphis Grizzlies take on the Phoenix Suns

Now this should be a very good series. Both teams are led by MVP candidates. I think Cleveland Cash has something to prove against this team. The suns do have more depth, with both lines having a combined 1 loss , I’m not sure how the grizzlies second line matches up with the suns second line and that may be where Memphis struggles. The suns have been rolling all season but I don’t see this series going how the season went, it’ll be a close one. With that being said I have the Suns winning a nail bitter 3-2.


*Being that the draft got moved up, my top three teams will share this final post*


Owner Grof

3rd Ranked Team (Picked 3rd)

Positional Ranks

Quarterback 8th

Running Back 2nd

Receiving Core 7th

Offensive Line 1st

Front Seven 5th

Back End 8th

It took no time for the last team to be added in the pool to be taken off the board. Being a running back myself makes this team my favorite pick. Imagine being able to use that BEAST Jonathan Taylor (RB) behind the best offensive line in the league! Although Carson Wentz (QB) is rated pretty low, he’s got nice throw power to sling the ball to some good, not great, speedy receivers. Did I mention they have JONATHAN TAYLOR?

On defense they have a couple of STUDS. Deforest Buckner (DT) is going to be one of the best defensive lineman this year. They also may have the best linebacker in Darius Leonard. Let’s see if they can put that strip specialist to use this season. (Bobby Okereke is also 88SPD and MLB should be a good user) The secondary is OK featuring Xavier Rhodes (80) and Rock Ya-Sin (79). This could very well be one of the teams that gets thrown on this season.

Reigning Super Bowl winning owner Grof is starting off his second season with a great team pick here as he will be looking to repeat. In the draft he needs to find three good running backs who can carry this team on offense. Defensively he needs to get himself a good d-lineman to get pressure with Buckner and a good defensive back to make some plays with an average secondary. Did I mention they have JONATHAN TAYLOR?


Owner Realest

2nd Ranked Team (Picked 10th)

Positional Ranks

Quarterback 1st

Running Back 1st

Receiving Core 2nd

Offensive Line 7th

Front Seven 8th

Back End 4th

What a steal with the last pick of the draft to nab the highest overall team of this season at 86 overall. This team features the best quarterback (Joe Burrow) and running back (Joe Mixon) in the league. (Not sure how Mixon is rated 1 higher than Jonathan Taylor because I’d argue Taylor over Mixon easy) They also have the second highest receiving core featuring offensive Rookie of the Year (WR) Jamarr Chase with a blazing 94 speed. Wide receivers Tyler Boyd and Tee Higgins are no slouches either. This team should score the most points on offense this season. Their downfall is the bad offensive line.

Their front seven includes (DE) Trey Hendrickson and (DT) DJ Reader. The linebacking group has nothing worth bringing up but they have a strong secondary featuring one of the leagues best safeties Jessie Bates (92 OVR). They also have one of the fastest secondary groups this season. The front seven was one of the factors they aren’t my #1 team.

A few seasons ago the Bengals were picked among some of the NFLs best. They don’t match up well against better teams because of their speed and Burrows wind up. That team still made the playoffs. This draft Realest will be looking to pick up some top tier receiver talent to get open with Jamarr. On defense he will need some good user linebackers to figure out their LB situation. This season against some of the lower NFL rosters should set up this team for greatness. I mean somehow they made it to the Super Bowl and this season I think we will find out why.


Owner Lucky

1st Ranked Team (Picked 1st)

Positional Ranks

Quarterback 5th

Running Back 3rd

Receiving Core 8th

Offensive Line 3rd

Front Seven 2nd

Back End 2nd

Finally, we made it guys! Lucky didn’t screw up the 1st overall pick by picking the best team this season! I really like Alvin Kamara (RB) on this team as my favorite receiving back in the league. And what do I like even more? This offensive line where both of the tackles have edge protector. I think that will help aid the decent QB in Jameis Winston (90THP) throw to Kamara and WR Michael Thomas. This team should be able to bully opposing defensive linemen.

These guys are ranked top 2 in both of my categories on defense. Let’s start with superstar Xfactor Cameron Jordan (LE 92OVR) followed by (RE) Marcus Davenport, and (DT) David Onyemata. At linebacker we have the second best player on the roster in Demario Davis (92OVR, Secure Tackler). Their defensive backs keep the show going with Marshon Lattimore (88 OVR 93SPD), Marcus Williams (FS 84OVR), strong safeties Malcom Jenkins (83OVR) and CJ Gardner Johnson (82 OVR 90 SPD), and lastly Bradley Roby (CB 80OVR). This team is stacked on defense, no doubt about it.

The Saints edged out the Bengals for me because of their trenches, where games are won and lost. There’s no doubt in my mind that if Lucky can nail the draft this team will have an opportunity to hoist the Lombardi this season. This team will need strong running backs to help the quarterbacks out. On the other side he needs to go get someone whos going to cause havoc with Cam Jordan on mostly weak offensive lines. There’s nothing better than a well balanced team. I’d rather my team be good at many things than great at one thing.



Owner Mr Ohio

4th Ranked Team (Picked 6th)

Positional Ranks
Quarterback 2nd

Running Back 4th

Receiving Core 3rd

Offensive Line 8th

Front Seven 6th

Back End 6th

Da Raiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiiders (Chris Berman voice) come in as my 4th ranked team. Some of you newer people may not remember from season one that the “we ball” gang took these same Raiders (well, with WR Henry Ruggs) to the superbowl in season 1. They may not have Ruggs anymore but they replaced him with another speedster Desean Jackson (95 speed). They arguably have the best quarterback in the league (depending on your values, but an accurate passer with 91THP is awesome). The running back solid in Josh Jacobs and they have a decent receiving back in Kenyan Drake. The offensive line could be a problem. The ranks were based off for sure starters but like the Eagles, Richie Incognito isn’t factored into the algorithm. If they can sub him in they climb the ranking abit. It’s funny that the higher my rankings go the more you forget to bring up they even have an Xfactor tight end in Darren Waller. Stud!
Defensively they don’t have any huge name players BUT they have a solid core that with decent users should do fine. Well… aside from linebacker (yikes). Maxx Crosby (LE) and Yannick Ngakoue are good players to have coming off the edge. They also have one of my favorite defensive backs in Casey Hayward (still can’t believe the Packers let him walk years ago, imaging him with Jaire) and the youngster Trayvon Mullen Jr. The safeties aren’t terrible to user either in Abram (92 speed), and Moehrig (90 speed).
Mr Ohio has a good team here and if he has an impressive draft this is going to be a team that could be scary. This might be as close to gun slinger as there is in the league this season. I’d like to see him draft a good running back to try and get the most from Jacobs, especially if they can sub in Incognito at guard. Defensively go and get a pass rusher who can dominate with Crosby. This team was a steal at the 6th pick in the draft.



Owner: Beaste

5th Ranked Team (Picked 2nd)

Positional Ranks

Quarterback 9th

Running Back 9th

Receiving Core 6th

Offensive Line 5th

Front Seven 4th

Back End 7th

Ryan Fitzpatricks Washington Football Team comes in as my 5th ranked team! This team was an interesting pick taken at 2 this season. The quarterback and runningback are ALMOST the worst. The offensive line is average which should help even out how bad those two positions are, but they have one of my favorite players at receiver in Scary Terry (Mclaurin). Talk about a beast! He reminds me of a young Deandre Hopkins in that he still puts up numbers even with trash quarterbacks.

Defensively these guys have some fun players. Its a very similar team to yesterdays Pittsburgh Steelers. The defensive line features superstar Chase Young, Jonathan Allen, Da’Ron Payne, and Montez Sweat. They even have a third DT in Matthew Ioannidis who’s an 80 OVR! I’m rushing five every play, I don’t care. Looking through the roster I couldn’t find a linebacker worth talking about (Holcomb??). But the secondary has a few bright spots in Kendall Fuller (88OVR) and William Jackson (84). Having Landon Collins (SS) in the box should be fun, too.

This team has some fun talent on both sides of the ball. As much as I don’t like Fitzpatrick I don’t think that Beaste would have chose this team if he didn’t feel like he was alright. He will need to draft two other good quarterbacks to be successful this season. On defense I’m looking, again, for some monster defensive line users. It should be really fun for them getting to the quarterback all season against these weak offensive lines. Could he have traded back and still picked them? I think so. But as owner of the Super Bowl winning Browns in season 2, I won’t question him too much.


Pittsburgh Steelers

Owner: Sir Bottomis

6th Ranked Team (Picked 7th)

Positional Ranks

Quarterback 7th

Running Back 6th

Receiving Core 5th

Offensive Line 9th

Front Seven 1st

Back End 9th

The Pittsburgh Steelers come in at 6th in my rankings today! The offense doesn’t have much to offer aside from superstar wide receiver Diontae Johnson and running back Najee Harris. It will be hard to run the ball with this offensive line. The quarterback isn’t very good either coming in at 74 overall with 85 throw power. Maybe there will be some face catching attempts thrown at wide receiver Chase Claypool (6’4”).

The front seven has the best players you will see in the league this season. A few of the notable players are defensive player of the year TJ Watt (LOLB 96OVR), superstar x-factor Cameron Heyward (RE 94OVR), Stephon Tuitt (LE 86 OVR), Tyson Alualu (DT 82OVR), and Devin Bush (MLB 90 speed). The secondary is arough spot on this team but they do have a really good player in susperstar Minkah Fitzpatrick (FS 89OVR).

This team has a LOT of good players on it. I’m not sure many teams will be able to run the ball on them or even really block this front four. In the draft I think Sir Bottomis should be looking for good quarterbacks who can dink-and-dunk and manage the game. On defense he needs to find some good defensive line users to blow up every play before it begins. He should be able to have a good season as long as he has a good draft!



Owner: Areis

7th Ranked Team (Picked 5th)

Positional Ranks:

Quarterback 6th

Running Back 8th

Receiving Core 9th

Offensive Line 4th

Front Seven 7th

Back End 5th

The Eagles come in as my 7th ranked team in the draft. This is where things got hard for me with so many teams coming up that I grade close together. One thing I really like on this offense is the offensive line (especially if they are able to sub Brandon Brooks in). Other than that they have an OK running back, a fast but weak armed QB in Jalen Hurts, and some low overall receivers. I think that the offense will thrive off big plays from players like Devonta Smith and Quez Watkins (98 Speed).

On the defensive line you will find two good players in Javon Hargrave, Brandon Graham and Fletcher Cox. The secondary also has some good players like superstar Darius Slay and corner Avonte Maddox (93 Speed). There is nothing to talk about at linebacker on this team, but I could see the defensive line causing some issues this year against some fairly weak offensive line play.

The Eagles are really good in the trenches which helps them be a balanced football team. Areis needs to find himself some good receivers in the draft to utilize the speed this team has. On defense the biggest need would be a good user linebacker to figure out what to do on that second level. This team has some game-changing pieces on it that with right draft picks could do some real damage. It’s nice to see another team with a good kick returned in Quez Watkins.



Owner: Game Green

9th Ranked Team (Picked 7th, but technically 10th because they missed their pick?)

Positional Ranks

Quarterback 3rd

Running Back 5th

Receiving Core 10th

Offensive Line 6th

Front Seven 9th

Back End 10th

The Atlanta Falcons are barely edging out yesterdays Dolphins for the 9th spot in these rankings. The two things I like most about this team on offense are running back Cordarrelle Patterson and tight end Kyle Pitts. I think the two weak spots on offense are the wide receivers and Matt Ryans noodle arm (although he does have OK throwing stats it’s hard to get behind 85 throw power). The offensive line is just average.

Defensively, there are many holes on this team. No position group stands out BUT they do have a few playmakers in: defensive end Grady Jarrett, two 90 speed linebackers in Deion Jones and Foyesade Oluokun, and the highest rated player on their team, cornerback AJ Terrell Jr (87 Overall). Even though their secondary is weak they do have three defensive backs above 92 speed for what that is worth. Like the Dolphins, they also have an awesome kick returner in Cordarrelle Patterson. I wouldn’t be surprised if we see some return touchdowns from them as well.

This team has some playmakers on it with the right users. The quarterback won’t wow with deep shots but will be accurate. Aside from Alvin Kamara I think Patterson is the best receiving back in the league. Game Green will have to draft a good receiving back to elevate this offense. Sure, a great user receiver is nice to have, but I’m not sure how much that will help this team. On defense they can get by with some good users in the draft. There’s a good player on each level for users to maximize the defenses potential. It’s too bad that he missed his pick in the team draft but I don’t think it could have worked out much better for him.

Week 2 Power Rankings

Week 2 of the VFL has concluded. I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has participated thus far players and staff. I understand the difficulties that have occurred throughout the week. We are officially halfway through the season. Each team played a total of 24 games after week 2, below are the leagues power rankings. Ranks are sorted by Overall Record and if there is a tired record, Points for is the tie breaker. 

1.) Baltimore Ravens (18-6) Last week: 3

Now with the best record in the league, the Ravens are starting to look to be the superior team in the league. Moved from 3 to 1 which is the biggest jump in the power rankings. They have seemed to figure out the team chemistry. With the addition of trading Realest for a bag of rocks, this is who I’m putting my money on to win the superbowl this year. 

2.) Arizona Cardinals (17-6-1) Last week: 1

It can be argued that this is actually the best talented team in the league. This team had a small hiccup in terms of change of management and most of the roster leaving as well. But after a merger with the Panthers, this team is back to its winning ways. They have the best win streak in the league with 5 wins. I want to say thanks to Dirtyfalcons for stepping up as owner and brownies in accepting the GM position. 

3.) Buffalo Bills (14-10) Last week: 2

Rough ending for the Bills on thursday as they lost all three games. It seems this team struggles with consistency. When they win, they are a huge threat for teams. They have the potential of going deep in the playoffs. They have the third best scoring offense in the league at 461 points for but lack in defensive presence being ranked 5th in points against. 

4.) Kansas City Chiefs (13-10-1) Last week: 5

The Chiefs are starting to bounce back from their week 1 performance, but they will need to do very well next week. If the season ended today, they would clinch a wildcard berth but with the Raiders right behind them, they need to step it up. Its been quiet in terms of complaints on this team as well which is a great thing.  

5.) Dallas Cowboys (12-11-1) Last week: 6

Management in Dallas is doing a great job in terms of remaining competitively. They keep climbing the rankings and currently clinching playoffs with their record. They are tied 2nd in the league in terms of highest win streak with 4 wins. Hopefully this carries over to week 3. 

6.) Green Bay Packers (11-13) Last week: 4

On the opposite end, the Packers are declining in power rankings. I really believe this team is better than their record but Forfeits are seeming to be their issue. Which doesnt make sense since they have 12 players on their roster. If people are inactive, I would advise Green bay to start blacklisting in hopes of attracting new talent. They also need to watch out for the defense being played as well as many complaints have came in from this team in week 2. 

7.) Las Vegas Raiders (11-12-1) Last week: 7

Again, WB Clan where ya at? Ranked 7th last week, ranked 7th this week. I was expecting a bounce back in week 2 but that wasn’t in the case. Maybe a bounce back in week 3? I would also advise this team in terms of following the rulebook as well. Suggestion; study what the ravens are doing. Not one complaint has been submitted against the team and they have the best record. 

8.) Cleveland Browns (10-14) Last week: 8

This team is so iffy its weird. One game they blow out a team, the next team, they lose by 40+. Maybe its a huge change in talent? If so, try to change the lines in terms of balancing out talent with one another. They did make a trade for Ice today so that will add some consistency to their team. But trading away Realest for almost nothing was horrible IMO. 

9.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (8-16) Last week: 9

Posting a leagues highest losing streak of 5 losses, they absolutely have to bring their A game next week or they will not make playoffs. They are 3 games behind from the wildcard playoff berth but with how they averge 4-8 each week, Im starting to lose hope in this team. 

10.) Carolina Panthers (4-20) Last week: 10

Nothin to see here. Panthers owner quit due to an ass spanking from the bills which put the panthers in another awful situation. This team is pretty much a bye win for any team that plays them. 

Week 1 Power Rankings

Week 1 of the VFL has concluded. I want to take a moment to thank everyone who has participated thus far players and staff. Without you guys, no VFL would exist. While we did have a rough start on Day 1, I strongly believe the league bounced back strong. Each team played a total of 12 games in week 1, below are the leagues power rankings. Ranks are sorted by Overall Record and if there is a tired record, Points for is the tie breaker. 

1.) Arizona Cardinals (10-2) Last week: --

No shocker here, I figured this team being a playoff contender from the beginning after draft night. Management has done well in terms of obtaining the best talent. What’s even more impressive is this team handed over 3 reliable players to save the Panthers franchise and still managed to pull the best record in the league. They lead the league in many categories; Points for (267), Points Against (118), Team passing yards (2094), Passing TDs (16), and second in team DEF INTs (15). 

2.) Buffalo Bills (8-4) Last week: --

I must say, I did not expect this being placed at the second best team after week 1. I projected the bills to be played in 3rd to 5th. Despite the many hurdles this team had to get through in terms of using ECUs, they were able to finish 3rd in the league in Points for (197), 5th in Points Against (166), 2nd in team rushing (617), 1st in team sacks (18), 1st in team DEF INTs (17), and first in DTDs (7). 

3.) Baltimore Ravens (8-4) Last week: --

Tied with the best record in the AFC, the Ravens are a legit threat in the league. They were two points under from surpassing the Bills and claiming the second spot. Its been fairly quiet in terms of the team, no player stats were reported nor any type of news. 

4.) Green Bay Packers (6-6) Last week: --

Considered to have the second best scoring offense in the league with 211 in points for and second in the league in terms of Points Against (124). They have at least two solid lines that can compete with any line in the league. It seems they went into a slump with having the leagues worst losing streak of 3 games. However, I think this team has to take two forfeits. 

5.) Kansas City Chiefs (6-6) Last week: --

Biggest shocker so far. I expect this team to be top 3 in the league given the roster and team they have. I think once players familiarize themselves with the rulebook and enforce those practices on the field, I believe this team can bounce back in week 2 and do some serious damage. 

6.) Dallas Cowboys (6-6) Last week: --

The Cowboys have exceeded my expectations this week. I had this team being ranked 9th or 10th in the standings. Management has had to do many roster changes due to inactivates but they have been handling it well and still able to compete. I think almost half of their roster now is players from either TC or the free agency. the second and third pick already dipped, but that hasnt fazed the team. 

7.) Las Vegas Raiders (5-7) Last week: --

WB Clan where ya at? Not gonna lie, you all had the league on alert in the first half. Some of us thought this team was going to swept the league and take over. I expected this team to be ranked 1st overall with how well management talked highly of their players and from previous maddens, I have ran into some of these players and they are decent. I do expect a bounce back week for this team. 

8.) Cleveland Browns (5-7) Last week: --

This team is better than their record. A lot of their games were decided by 7 points or less. Aries, I’m going to need you to step up and be the man of this team, Redwater cant do it alone anymore.  

9.) Tampa Bay Buccaneers (4-8) Last week: --

Whats going on here boys? Arguably the best madden team in terms of Superstars and X factors. I expected this team to be ranked between 4th and 6th. Maybe the team is trying to figure out their chemistry. I expect a bounce back in week 2. 

10.) Carolina Panthers (2-10) Last week: --

The curse of the Carolinas continue. Ownership has changed 3x since late August. Kudos for Scaly for stepping up and trying to turn the team around. This team endured alot in the first week. Original management and most of the roster quit 15min before opening kickoff. This caused alot of panic in the league but after replacing the team with good talent, this team can turn it around easily. I expect a better record in week 2 since half of the losses were forfeit losses.
