Trotter League-Week 12

It was an exciting week of fantasy football in our Trotter League. This week’s matchups were a repeat of the leagues’ Week 1 games, and it was a solid opportunity for some teams to serve up a little bit of revenge. Special K, Big Easy, and Ant did exactly just that. Also, 8 of the 12 teams did some shuffling in the standings. Although he suffered a loss this week, Flight Time remains in 1st place, followed closely by Ant and then TANNEHILLbillies.

 

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

Big Easy Lofton: Melph52

Flight Time Lang: Three Peat Flight
