Week 6 MVP Award Winner –
MJD Hogg (31 Points)
MJD Hogg has left Hazzard County, Sheriff Rosco P. Coltrane, and the rest of the club in the dust as he scored 31 Points to win the Week 6 MVP Award. He did this by getting all three of the high value games correct including both Games of the Week and the Monday night game. Sweeping those three games alone gets you 16 Points, so it was a great way to start for MJD. Along with that, he was 1 of only 4 club members to correctly pick the Double Stakes of Wash-Jax (along with Hoosier Daddy, My Wife Loves Jimmy G & The Rickster). And then he wrapped things up by getting all three Point Spread Games. MJD Hogg is 1 of 4 club members who has not yet attempted Triple Jeopardy this season. Being that the club is a combined 26-23 at picking TJ this season, it’s a difficult category to be successful at. As a result of his huge week, MJD Hogg has entered the Top Five this week for the first time this season and is currently tied for 4th Place. MJD Hogg’s brother and teammate Hoosier Daddy won the Week 6 MVP Award Runner-Up with 30 Points. Hoosier Daddy has completely turned around his season in the last few weeks. For starters, he has improved from 0-3 to 3-3 in Triple Jeopardy, thus breaking even and not losing any Points. Also, back in Week 3 he was in 18th Place and now he has climbed all the way to 12th Place. He is now sitting only 11 Points away from getting into the Top Five. MJD and Hoosier’s teammate Drummer Boy has also suddenly burst into contention, drumming his way into the Top Five after another strong week. Drummer Boy has finally recovered from my MVP challenge to him mid-last season, which threw him out of the rhythm of making great picks. He is officially back and all club members better watch their backs or he may pass them up before they realize what has happened. The three best players so far at picking TJ this season are Shaylene (5-0), Drummer Boy (5-1), and Roadrunner (3-0). The Top Five currently consists of #1 Young Tuna (5 Weeks at #1), #2 Roadrunner (10 Points back), #3 Fearless Tuna (14 Points back), and tied for #4 Drummer Boy & MJD Hogg (16 Points back). But an interesting thing is that all players from 6th to 14th Place are only 13 Points or less away from getting into the Top Five. So it is still a very wide open race at this point, at which we are now 1/3 of the way through the season. In Head to Head Weekly, Drummer Boy continues to dominate as he improved to 4-0 with a win over Bob Swerski 25-16. In Pro Bowl Team Weekly, Daddy & His Boys delivered a statement victory by crushing The Volcanoes 86-56.
