Warderball Central – Weeks 3 and 4

Week 3

Welcome back to another week of WARDERBALL with your hosts, #MadAlora!!

Alora: and what a week it was!

Madhar: That’s right Alora, the projections for this week were way off in nearly every game, lets get down to the nitty gritty…

First was Alora’s Targs vs the Brotherhood without Banners, it was projected to be a very close game but the Targs had multiple players fall short of projections, and J Robinson (RB) and D Moore(WR) going off weren’t enough to save her from defeat. The Brotherhood took the win in a blowout with a score of 141.84 to 103.48.

Braedan’s Bombers faced off against Rand’s Barrani Jokers this week, and though both teams fell short of projections, the outcome was as predicted with Brae taking the win with a score of 102.52 to 81.30. Rand’s team took an early lead on Sunday afternoon but after that it was all Brae, all the way.

Atane’s Accomplices lost to the Band of the Red Hand this week with a score of 110.54 to 143.68, both teams exceeding their projections. D Carr (QB) and K Hunt(RB) were the golden boys for Atane, but with four of the Band’s players exceeding expectations, which include Tom Brady (QB) and the Denver Defense, it was inevitable for the Band to come out on top.

Cursor’s Brady is GOD scored far less than projected but still took out the Valyrian Steelers to finish 104.92 to 83.62. There was a lot of back and forth this week between these teams but by Monday Cursor was soaring high, maintaining his perfect season of 3-0.

Madhar’s Minions and Daestruction both underscored this week severely, but Madhar took the week with a score of 86.14 to 75.68. One wonders if Dae was even playing this week, as T Higgins(WR) and W Lutz(K) contributed 0 points each, and most other players underscoring. Mad’s Washington Defense gave him nothing but it wasn’t enough to stop him from taking the win this week.

Esteban was barely projected to beat Dark One’s Luck this week by less than a full point, however Dark One’s Luck pulled ahead to end at 103.14 to 93.04. Dark One’s Luck is looking just about unstoppable as they have a perfect record coming out of Week 3 and have an average margin of victory of 39 points, which is the highest in the league.

Alora: So can anyone topple that record? We’ll find out going into Week four!

Madhar: Stay tuned for the next episode of…


Week 4

Warderball Central opens up this week to Alora dancing in her seat as the camera pans forward and the theme music plays.

Madhar: Welcome to Week Four of—


Madhar: They certainly did for you this week, lets get right into it!

Alora’s team of Klingons slayed this week after a couple weeks of losses, beating Daestruction 148.04 to 69.12. The 78.92 margin this game was the largest so far in the league this year. Dae started 4 players which scored 0 points which certainly didn’t help things for him, but the Targs’ score of 148.04 was the second highest score in the league so far so it’s uncertain whether he could have pulled ahead.

Brae ended Cursor’s reign of terror this week by beating him 112.66 to 108.72, making this Cursor’s first loss in the league this year. The game was close the entire time until Brae pulled just ahead on Monday night. Brae’s Buffalo Bills defense were the real MVPs of this game, more than doubling their projected points.

VC cub Atane got on Rand’s lawn this week and owned it, beating him 126.44 to 102.22. Atane’s team scored more points this week than their season average, and his star player this game was T Hill (WR), who scored 47.10 points, far exceeding the projection of 17.50.

What happens when an immovable object is hit by an unstoppable force? The Band of the Red Hand vs Dark One’s Luck game is what happens. Both of these guys were undefeated but only one could come out on top and that was the Band, winning 102.06 to 71.72. The Band took an early lead and never gave it up, despite J Jones (WR) scoring them 0 points.

The Brotherhood slapped down the Valyrian Steelers this week, 100.68 to 91.62. The Steelers can’t catch a break as they have not won a game yet this year, and that small margin has got to hurt. The Brotherhood didn’t have their best week either, they would have only beat 3 other teams this week.

Madhar’s Minions had something to celebrate this week as they took the lead against Esteban early on and finished strong, 138.22 to 92.82. D Henry (RB) and T McLaurin (WR) were the heroes this week as they both far exceeded expectations, giving the Minions a 58.9 point lead on Sunday afternoon. Madhar’s score going into week 5 is 3-1.

Alora: Not to shabby yourself bro!

Madhar: Definitely was a great week for #MadAlora, lets see if we can keep it up in Week 5!

Alora: We’ll see you all next time on…..

Warderball Central – Weeks One and Two

*the epic Warderball Central theme music plays as the camera zooms in with a flourish on our two hosts, Madhar and Alora*
Madhar: Welcome back everyone to another edition of Warderball Central!! We’ve had an exciting two weeks of games…

Alora: That’s right Mad, and quite a few upsets as well! Lets dive right in and take a look at Warderball Week One:
Each week will have six games as the matchups rotate between the 12 teams. In Week One we had some close games and some that blew the competition away! Without further ado, lets get into the details of Week One’s games.
Alora’s Qo’noS Targs faced off against Rand’s Barrani Jokers in what was projected to be a win for Rand, but in a surprise upset, Alora’s Klingons wrecked the Jokers 125.1 to 94.58. Patrick Mahomes was Rand’s MVP of the week but Alora’s Amari Cooper vastly exceeded projected points and put her over the top for a win.
Braedan’s Bombers and Atane’s Accomplices took to the field amid projections that the big wolf in town Brae would take it all, but the newest cub of VC took home the underdog victory with a score of 145.34 to 123.56. Atane had an early lead in the week, but on Sunday Brae and Russell Wilson pulled ahead, before Atane’s Tyreek Hill and Jarvis Landry snatched victory from the jaws of defeat.
Xander’s Band of the Red Hand was projected to lose to the Valyrian Steelers by only a single point, but those projections turned out to be way off as the Band pulled ahead to win 126.56 to 105.2. Xander’s Tom Brady ensured that he had an early lead and Aragoth’s Steelers just couldn’t make up the difference. This matchup’s 21.36 margin was the closest in the league this week.
Cursor’s Brady is GOD faced off against Madhar’s Minions this week, and took the lead early, never giving an inch to finish 127.82 to 104.76. Cursor’s team had 5 of his 9 starting players exceeding the projected points, while Madhar’s Kyler Murray put up 34.56 points, which was the highest score for a quarterback this week.
Brotherhoodw/0Banner took out Esteban Diego De Castille as they both fell short of projections, ending with a score of 121.48 to 98.16. Esteban’s team was projected to win but the Brotherhood took the lead early and never let up, thanks in part to Adam Thielen scoring 78.5% more than his projected points.
Feros’ Dark One’s Luck was projected to beat Daegan’s Daestruction and they didn’t disappoint, ending the game with a score of 143.66 to 81.28. Feros had three players who scored more points than the highest scorer on Daegan’s team, and the 62.38 point margin was the largest in the league this week.
Alora: And that wraps up Week One of Warderball! How’d we do in Week Two, Mad?

Madhar: Thanks Alora *taps his notecard on the table* Week Two had some good games, and a hefty dose of rivalries!
One such rivalry was Qo’noS Targs VS Brady is GOD, as Alora and Cursor often face off as Ravens and Patriot fans respectively. It was a nailbiter from start to finish as they kept passing each other in points, but Cursor was able to come out on top with a final score of 103.18 to 98.86. Both teams fell far short of projections but the result was as predicted in the end.
Braedan’s Bombers faced off against Xander’s Band of the Red Hand this week, and was projected to win but was destroyed by the Band with a score of 147.74 to 102.72. Xander’s team took an early lead and never gave it up, thanks in part to overachiever Cooper Kupp.
Feros obviously had the Dark One’s Luck in this matchup against Atane’s Accomplices as he slid to victory with a score of 121.06 to 76.48. This was another matchup where the lead came early and never changed, and though both teams fell short of projections, Atane’s team had the lowest score of the week so it was fate for Feros to come out on top.
Rand’s Barrani Jokers had their first win of the season against the Valyrian Steelers who have yet to have that honor, the Jokers exceeding their projected points to end at 126.42 to 96.66. Early Sunday afternoon Rand took a 35.04 point lead and it was smooth sailing from then on. Greg Zuerlein had a 56 yard field goal for the Steelers, but it just wasn’t enough.
Madhar’s Minions absolutely curb-stomped the Brotherhood, 173.20 to 99.32, but it was bound to happen since no matter who Madhar played this week, he would have won, finishing with the highest score of the week. It didn’t help the Brotherhood than Jason Sanders(K) scored 0 points, while Madhar had seven players exceed their score projections.
Daestruction had the top scorer of the game but it wasn’t enough to save them from Esteban, as he won 140.70 to 100.18. The real stars were Esteban’s wide receivers, with a total of 57.8 points of the total score. It didn’t help that Daestruction’s Wil Lutz(K) was on Injured Reserve and scored 0 points this week.
Alora: It’s been an exciting couple of weeks!

Madhar: And we look forward to seeing you all on the next episode of….

Alora and Madhar: Warderball Central!

Warderball Central: Week 1 Introductions

Warderball is back for our 11th season! Follow along as Tar Valon.Net’s finest battle against each other every week in head-to-head fantasy football matchups! We’ve got returning players and some new additions that should make for a great season. We’re going to introduce the teams and we had league commissioner, Braedan Fearghal, weigh in on each team’s potential MVP.

Atane’s Accomplices: Atane is a newcomer to the league this year. We can definitely see he is a Chiefs fan with four of his players coming from Kansas City. His best pick looks to be Tyreek Hill. Week 12 should be interesting with four “starters” on a bye that week.

Band of the Red Hand: Xander is a league veteran returning to the action. His top pick is Ezekiel Elliot.

Barrani Jokers: Rand is back again this year to angrily shake his cane in everyone’s direction. Patrick Mahomes should give his team a definite boost all season.

Braedan’s Bombers: League commissioner and our very own expert hopes Davante Adams can keep his team at the top of the league.

Brady Is God: New England’s own and world traveler Cursor surprisingly doesn’t have Tom Brady on his team. He does have Dak Prescott who was leading a top ranked offense in Dallas last season before an injury. Hopefully he can pick up we’re he left off.

Brotherhood Without Banners: If this is your team, please let us know! With a new QB and their top receiver out for at least six games in New Orleans, Alvin Kamara should rack up the points this season.

Daestruction: Aaron Jones should run all over the opposition this season and lead Daegan to victory.

Dark One’s Luck: Stefan Diggs led the league in receiving last year. Hopefully he can take the lead again this year for Feros.

Esteban Diego De Castile: Esteban is a long time returning player. He’s got Christian McCaffery who will be the star player in Carolina. He should bounce back after being injured for most of last season.

Madhar’s Minions: Madhar is back again. He looked to draft some solid running backs to lead his team, but unfortunately drafted Ravens running back JK Dobbins just hours before a season-ending injury in preseason. Luckily he still has Derrick Henry as a number one RB.

Qo’noS Targs: Ravens fan Alora has four players from Baltimore on her team. One is dual threat quarterback Lamar Jackson. With their starting running back out for the season, Lamar should rack up points in the air and on the ground.

Valyrian Steelers: Dalvin Cook should lead the way for Agoroth’s team this season.

We’ll check back in each week to see how these players are doing for their teams. Good luck to everyone and have a great season!
