Week 1 Review
The reigning champ picked up where he left off last season, atop the leaderboard, as he went 10-6. Deja also went 10-6, giving the reigning champ some much needed competition. The two rookies, Diamond Jim and Howitzer sit in a four way tie for third with the Buzz-Saw and B Hyphen (all 9-7), while Triple S (8-8) is already playing catchup for the second straight season. With 16 weeks left and all combatants within two picks, the minister of the tricycle is still within reach of everyone.
