Liantonio Regains Main Event Lead

Amish Rake Fight Leapfrogs Mueller & Meyer by 8.25 Points

After a three-week reign in the top spot of the 2021 FFPC Main Event, Danny Mueller and Ron Meyer's Average Joe squad gave up the lead to the Amish Rake Fight, owned by Giuseppe Liantonio. The "ARF" now holds an 8.25-point lead over Average Joe thanks to a Week 8 tally of 175.85 points. Tom Brady (31.95), Chris Godwin (28), Cooper Kupp (24.5) and Melvin Gordon (20.2) led the way for Liantonio as we head into Week 9.

Make it two weeks in a row for last week's HSFF Hour guests Dom Baranyi, Sean Stutzman and Nick Costantino's Go Bills entry in third place with 2021 Main Event champ David Hubbard rising two spots in to fourth place. And in fifth, you'll see the inaugural FFPC Main Event winner Chad Schroeder lurking with his Cocktails & Dreams team.

Antley Remains the FPC Leader

It wasn't necessarily a fantastic week for Jeff Antley and his Khaliff's Krew in the 2021 Footballguys Players Championship, but it was good enough for the squad to keep Todd Hunter's Tree Huggers away by 49.2 points for the overall lead. Josh Allen's 31.95, Kupp, Deebo Samuel's 23.1 and Gordon helped the Krew to a 137.45-point score.

Behind Hunter in third place is Frank Gore's Hog Squad--run by Tyler Jackson and Mike Dozier--as the top three teams this week remain unchanged from Week 7 games. Jay Flake--who at one point had the overall lead this season--got his Ageless team back up into fourth place while Jeffrey Dobies' ALL IN entry moved up six spots into fifth place this past weekend.
