John Rahilly in First Place in 2022 FPC

As we look at the top of the leader board in the 2022 Footballguys Players Championship, we see that John Rahilly's Out of Position's Week 7 193 score has caused him to assume the overall lead heading into Week 7. Rahilly's score was boosted by Joe Burrow's 35.5, Stefon Diggs' 30.8, Deon Jackson's 28.1 and Stevenson.

Last week's leaders Mo Farunia and Nick Vagi--who will be appearing live on The High Stakes Fantasy Football Hour this Friday night--slipped one spot to second with their Gulag's Finest squad, which is just 10.55 points off the pace. Jake Valeich's The Machine (26er) sits in third for the second straight week while Brad Petri's Foosball moved up 17 spots into fourth. Rounding out this week's top five teams is Ron Snyder's rwsnyd2 that is fewer than three points behind Petri.
