While he almost made the full ascension in Week 7, Henry Muto now has his Cobras in the driver's seat of the 2020 FFPC Main Event going into Week 9. Robert Woods (28.4), Tyreek Hill (25.8), Alvin Kamara (25.3) and Tom Brady (21.85) did the heavy lifting for the Cobras as they tallied a 166.65 Week 8 score.

Darren Hill's Country Gramma shot up two spots to second, well within striking distance of the Cobras. John Tenley deserves congrats for having not only the third-place team in the Main Event, but the fifth-place team as well.
