Players of the Week – Week 5 Edition

Players of the Week – Week 5

By Sean Dochney

QB

Joe Giuffre – Shockers

This is the 3 rd time that GUFFman has been featured in Players of the Week, and it is no surprise that he is leading the league in most of the QB categories. This past week Joe went 28-41 for 430 yards, 10 touchdowns, and 2 picks in the 76-8 dismantling of the Average Joes. The Shockers remain undefeated and they have the highest point differential in the league. Giuffre now has 2,544 yards and 45 touchdowns on the season; the next best QBs in those categories are the Zit with 1,904 yards and the Commissioner with 31 TDs. The GUFFslinger is even leading the league in interceptions thrown with 11.

Runner Up

Anthony Fontana – Blue Jackets

Fontana just keeps getting the job done for the Blue Jackets as they remain undefeated after a 45-32 win over No Lackin. Fontana went 25-40 for 381 yards, 6 TDs, and yet another week without throwing an interception. Fontana is putting together a stellar season for the Blue Jackets as he has completed 63.7% of his passes for 30 TDs and only 1 pick. Those 30 TDs are good for 3 rd in the league, and no other QB is protecting the ball as well as Fontana since most QBs are throwing at least 1 pick a game.


WR

Sean McAndrew – Warewolves

The Birdman stood tall in the Warewolves’ 42-24 win over a Rabid Squirrels team that entered the week undefeated. McAndrew couldn’t be stopped and he would go on to make 9 catches for 117 yards and 5 touchdowns. Sean now leads the league in receptions with 37, 3rd in the league in touchdowns with 14, and 5 th in yards with 542.


Defense

Joe DeTroia – Woodchucks

Joe was the epitome of clutch in the Woodchucks 41-26 victory over the Warriors. The Warriors had the ball down 26-27 with only a few minutes left when Joe’s late game heroics would seal the victory for the Woodchucks. Joe would run 2 interceptions back for touchdowns on back to back drives to win the game.

Runner Up

Devon Snead – Shockers

The Shockers defense dominated the Average Joes, who were only able to score 8 points. Devon would lead the way on defense, as he had 3 of the teams 6 interceptions, and he would run 1 back for a touchdown. These were Snead’s first 3 interceptions of the season. As a team, the Shockers now have 18 interceptions this season led by league leaders Bryan Soletto and Dan Calabrease. Bryan and Dan each have 5 picks for the year.
