Often times, it only takes one big week to shoot yourself up the leaderboard in the 2017 Footballguys Players Championship. And while Matthew Puskarich (right) and Randy Baer (left) have been doing well all season, it was their 214.5 score from this week that vaulted them from 35th place all the way to first. Thanks to Fournette, Carson Wentz (31.3), the Jacksonville defense (29), Ed Dickson (25), Harrison Butker (23.2), Zach Ertz (21.1) and Will Fuller (20.2), their UMNRaider squad now holds a slim 0.15-point lead over last week’s leader Dallas Grimes. You can hear Puskarich talk about his team and more on a special episode of the HSFF Hour TONIGHT!
Adam Grossman’s Atom Bombs moved up to third place this week with Michael Cobb’s Boss Savage!! ascending to fourth. Larry Erlichman’s AP15 falls to fifth after five weeks of play to complete this week’s top-5 spots.

The 2017 Footballguys Players Championship has a new leader after Week 5, and his name his Matthew Puskarich. On a SPECIAL WEDNESDAY NIGHT EPISODE TONIGHT, we discuss with him the changing backfield in Philly and how he knew to start Ed Dickson on his biggest day of his career. Plus we bring you up to speed on the latest in the 2017 Fantasy Football Players Championship Main Event, too!
The High Stakes Fantasy Football Hour normally airs Friday nights at 10/9c. You can always catch the replay of our show on the Fantasy Sports Radio Network as well as terrestrial radio stations all over North America in syndication. Plus, on-demand streaming is available for listening anytime via iTunes, YouTube, Google Play, Stitcher Radio, TuneIn Radio, Spreaker, or Overcast as well.
Tomorrow morning, remember to check out Rotoviz Radio‘s The High-Stakes Lowdown podcast with Darren Summer breaking down the Jets backfield and playing the waiver wire properly along with Nelson Sousa assessing what the new normal could be with the Steelers’ receivers.
You can check out a new episode of The High-Stakes Lowdown every Thursday on Rotoviz.com, Rotoviz Radio’s BlogTalkRadio channel or iTunes. I’d also encourage you to check out all of the other great podcasts that Rotoviz Radio has to offer including Fantasyland, a show that has already featured many FFPC players as well.
Dynasty players, please take note that the IR capability in your leagues has changed. Thanks to the new automatic injured reserve enforcement feature for our dynasty leagues, a player’s IR status will be listed per Sportradar, the official stat provider of the NFL.
Only players with the official IR designation will be able to be moved to IR status. This way, no one in any of our leagues will be able to take advantage of IR-ing a player before his own NFL team does.If you have any further questions about this, feel free to email our dynasty commissioner Dave Gerczak.
With waivers processing tonight, make sure you are filling in your lineup this week with replacements for LeSean McCoy, A.J. Green, Ezekiel Elliott, Doug Baldwin and more who will be taking the week off. And for a look at last week’s waiver details, check out the results at the link to Fantasy Mojo below:
