Trotter League-Week 11

Very little movement in the standings proves that teams are becoming comfortable with their positions, but the drive to be the best and win is still as strong as ever. Battling to the end, Week 11 showcased many Trotter teams that won in the final stages of Monday night’s Carolina/New England game. And although the end is in sight, we can’t forget that there is a certain level of unpredictability that compliments fantasy football, which makes each week as interesting as the last.

Here is the complete list of the 2013 Trotter League teams, nine of which are owned by Globetrotters stars:

Big Easy Lofton: Melph52

Moose Weekes: Gutcheckerz

Flight Time Lang: Three Peat Flight

Slick Willie Shaw: Ill Will’s Team

Special K Daley: Panama
