Bottom-Up Breakdown. 18.21.

Dwprix breaks down the top lineups in the OWS Bottom-Up Build challenge.

Week 17 Review

Each week, I’ll review the Bottom-Up Build contest. I’ll look at how the winners got to the top of the leaderboard, the game environments used, and how we can use this tournament to become better players. The purpose of the Bottom-Up Build is to roster players that you would feel comfortable rostering in a regular contest (solid price considered floor and high ceiling) so when you’re building for other contests, you don’t find yourself struggling with the last couple spots and jamming in someone that you’re not comfortable with. Studying these players may also put you on a game environment that others may be overlooking.

Overview

Rules :: Max $44k Salary (exceeding $44k salary will disqualify entry); must use OWS avatar to be eligible for prizes

Analysis

The Seahawks came to play this week putting up 51 points, their highest point total on the season. The closing total of 41 was the sixth-lowest but it ended up being the highest of any game. Russell Wilson put up his first 25+ point game since Week 2. He found DK Metcalf three times in the end zone resulting in his first 30+ point game of the season. The Seahawks also found success on the ground with Rashaad Penny scoring 35.5 DK points. On the other side of the game, Amon-Ra St. Brown had his best game of the season with 38.4 DK points and has now seen double-digit targets in five straight games (11, 11, 11, 12, 12). He’s scored in three straight and four of the last five games. 

This was an excellent example of a game that was being overlooked. We knew that the Lions defense is one of the worst in the league (30th overall) and the Seahawks defense isn’t much better (25th overall). Seattle has plenty of playmakers on the offensive side with Wilson, Lockett, and Metcalf. Due to them not producing much (besides some Lockett games), their prices were discounted making them excellent plays, especially for the Bottom-Up. The winner of this week’s contest, Greenwarrior, nailed the top four scorers from this game (Wilson-27.8, Penny-35.5, Metcalf-30.9, St. Brown-38.4) and went on to score 43 more points than the second-place finisher. 

Black-eyed_God was the second-place finisher, and they also won the contest in Week 15. This week, they stacked Trey Lance with Deebo Samuel and ran it back with Brandin Cooks. The third-place finisher, DougJFick, also played Lance but played him naked. 

Putting It Together

This was the first week all season that I haven’t played in any contests. Due to the large slate and my lack of time to prepare, I thought it would be a good rest week as we get ready to gear up for the playoffs. I’ll definitely be playing this week so I hope to see you at the top of the leaderboards!
