Survivor Fantasy League Scoreboard- HHH week 3

It’s an octopus! It’s a rock! No, it’s the PRP Fantasy League standings!

pr_fantasyleague_bnr2

Patrick was on about 15% of teams- teams that clearly did not share Lauren’s views on redheads. You can see the full player popularity rankings here:ย Purple Rock Pick-4 Fantasy Teams

Individual scoring

Immunity challenge: 3 points for the Heroes, 2 points for the Healers

Every non-Patrick on the Hustlers tribe gets 1 VTEP point.

Pick-4 League

It’s a six-way tie for first this week in Pick-4, with several regular commenters among the lead pack. Violina23 is one of those tied for first, which puts her 122 spots ahead of her husband. This is very on-brand for Violina. Long-time players Judson Helland and Joseph Finn are also tied for first, along with noted podcast denier The Sky Is Falling.

Champions and Outcasts Leagues

It was a tough week for JaredHolland32 and Ms. Sweaterfan, who put their trust in a redhead and got burned. XL Pelican retains the lead in Champions League, opening up a 3-point lead on our own Purple Rock Mark. In Outcasts League, the Purple Rock staff is dominating- I’m in first, Matt is in second, Official PRP Bellhop Saturday Night Palsy is in third, and Emma is in fourth. Clearly the key to succeeding in this league is to have done no research whatsoever.

  • Saturday Night Palsy

    Feeling real good about my chances in Outcasts. Plus the rest of you are all people I’ll truly enjoy beating!

    • StormofCuteness

      ๐Ÿ˜ขWhy you gotta be so cruel, SNP?

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        Every good fantasy league needs a villain. It just comes naturally to me.

        • Hornacek

          Blame it on the Bellboy.

  • Blurry Denzel

    First page on Pick 4 again. Also, I’m besting the queen, Barbara Anderson, in both Pick 4 and FOTM league. Life is good, or it would be if John would ever mention my team in Outcast. Two previous seasons where I get nothing when I’m eliminated and now I get skipped when I do sort of well. Emma is tied for fourth with me for Christ’s sake!! I’m just going to have to win it all to get the recognition I deserve.

    • Saturday Night Palsy

      Second place will really show John a thing or two!

    • You and AWE almost got shout outs in Pick-4. But I decided to reserve shout outs for only the best of the best this week. Like me, for instance. Did you guys know I’m in first place in Outcasts?

      • Blurry Denzel

        For now. Joe will get blindsided with an idol in his pocket and JP is clearly not a real person on this season.

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        Remember when you had Obvious Winner Michelle in KR and I still beat you? Good times, good times!

        • Doesn’t ring a bell.

          • Diego Armando

            And I outscored both of you without her in the Outcast League.

      • Diego Armando

        My brother is in a tie for 28th and he did even less research than you did.

  • Mike Hirsch

    Obligatory Roark song lyrics of the week:

    Say what you wanna say
    And let the words fall out
    Honestly
    I wanna see you be ROAR(k)

    (Seriously, Brave and Roar? The same song.)

    • Saturday Night Palsy

      You really don’t need to feel obligated to keep this going.

      • Mike Hirsch

        No trouble at all. I will do this so long as sheโ€™s getting me points.

        • StormofCuteness

          Yay!

          • Saturday Night Palsy

            So two more weeks. Three tops.

    • Jacob SW

      Ever since this cast was announced, I’ve had The Brunching Shuttlecocks “Bjork Song” stuck in my head, only with “Roark” swapped in.

      Oh, Roark, oh Roark,
      were you brought by the stork?
      Or were you created from butter and cork?
      I love you so much that I act like a dork.

    • Judson Helland

      Why not i want to Roark and roll?

      • Hornacek

        … all night, and party part of every day.

  • Ms. Sweaterfan

    In my defense, it’s not like Patrick was my first choice…

    https://acrossthehogsback.files.wordpress.com/2015/06/giphy-5.gif

  • Ms. Sweaterfan

    In better news, I’m within spitting range of the top 20 in the pick 4 league! And man does it feel weird to be rooting for Joe ~not~ to get voted out with an idol in his pocket.

    • Alycia Swift

      Me 2. That one drops from 12 to 26 … which is where I am.

      Made my day.

    Draft Time Bitches League Update

    (I didn’t create this league, but I didn’t see any updates in the last two weeks, so I’ll do the summaries)

    @Assistant Dragon Slayer is in the lead with 25, still with all 3 players. But @Kemper Boyd is close behind with 22 (and all their players too). @hornacek:disqus (that’s me!) and @Alycia Swift are tied for 3rd place with 20 – Alycia has all of their players but during the draft I got stuck with the last player and ended up with Katrina, so I’m down to two (Go Chrissy! Go Joe!). @EmAndScoutInBK is in 5th with 17 and suffers their first loss (bye Patrick), with @Ms Woozah in last place with 13, who I believe picked Simone over Devon.

    Also, in the fantasy league standings sheet for this league, I can’t help but notice that the font for my name is smaller than the font for the other players. I am sure this was not intentional.

    • Saturday Night Palsy

      The only person you successfully @ed was yourself. @Takko_From_Teevhii:disqus and I spent all afternoon teaching you yesterday!

      • Hornacek

        I know. I instinctively type “@” and then start typing their name – if it’s not in the drop-down list, then don’t get officially @ed.

        All I remember from your class on how to “@” people is “It takes a lot of extra work, and you have to know the person’s actual handle. It took me years to remember the names I see here, now you want me to memorize everyone’s other name?

        And you must have failed your own course – you couldn’t even properly “@” Taako From Teevhii’s name.

        • Saturday Night Palsy

          To be fair, his name is a bit difficult to spell.

          • Hornacek

            It probably wouldn’t fit on a bellhop uniform nametag.

          • Saturday Night Palsy

            Saturday Night Palsy was also too long so mine just says “Chet”.

          • Hornacek

            “I know”.

          • StormofCuteness

            Chet was my grandfather’s name.

          • Hornacek

            Also the name of one of Frank and Joe Hardy’s “chums”.

          • StormofCuteness

            I’m afraid I don’t get the reference.

          • Hornacek
          • Alycia Swift

            I get the reference. I feel old.

          • StormofCuteness

            If he’d just said Hardy Boys, I would totally have gotten it. He’s King of Deep Cut references.

          • Alycia Swift

            I remember the actual book cover.

          • StormofCuteness

            I was more of a Nancy Drew gal tbh.

          • Hornacek

            Am I really? I don’t try to be that.

          • StormofCuteness

            It’s a gift!

          • Hornacek

            Then I’ll lean into the skid!

  • Taako From Teevhii

    I wonder if everyone who’s been carrying Joe thus far is in for a rough ride after the swap. Because the Healers have been winning challenges in spite of him, he would have never found the idol without Cole, and it seems like everyone was on board to vote him out if the Healers ever went to Tribal. Can he continue to lead in points earned once the Healers are broken up?

    • Hornacek

      Joe has a chance to find another idol after the swap next week, depending on if he goes to another beach. Cha-CHING!

      • Saturday Night Palsy

        Also he will need to have Cole with him.

        • the sky is falling

          Joe won’t have time to search for the idol, he hasn’t even finished building his first spy-shack.

          • i and 1

            Hey, Joe, I need some help with this last leafy branch, I can’t seem to get this final one to lay flat and cover me all the way.

        • Hornacek

          “Hey you, I need help with this idol clue. It shows a drawing of an idol that’s under the ground right in front of an object that looks exactly like our treemail station. So what this means is … I have no idea where the idol is hidden.”

      • Taako From Teevhii

        Are we assuming that the idols are similarly hidden on each beach? After Tai found the Mana idol, I would’ve thought production would vary that by beach.

        • Hornacek

          Didn’t Tai find a second idol in Game Changers when he went to another beach by looking in the same location?

          • BadPlayer91

            Yeah, which from what I remember hearing, was something Production specifically said they didn’t want to happen. Thus it was confusing that it was so easily done during GC, and I would hope they’d avoid this season. But if they are similarly located, both Cole and Joe would be on idol watch.

            Maybe their attempt to avoid this is the directional element (Symbols showed the idol being by the water, 5 feet away, toward the beach). So, if they varied the direction in which the idol is from a specific point, Cole and Joe would still need to find the clue on a tree before they could get the idol, putting them only a bit ahead of anyone else. Or I guess they could simply try the same as at their own beach, and hope it’s there. Which would increase the risk of getting caught digging.

          • Hornacek

            I can’t remember any specific examples other than the GC one, but have there been seasons where idols are found on different beaches pre-swap and they are hidden in the exact same location at each camp?

          • BadPlayer91

            Hmmm, in Philippines the idol was located in the same place on all 3 beaches, but it didn’t result in anyone being able to get multiple. Can’t think of others off the top of my head. I just remember that being a discussion during GC.

          • China and Tocantins spring to mind.

        • Maritimer

          At the very least, the know the way clues are hidden this season so can be on the look out for that

        • Violina23

          I suspect they were probably hidden similarly pre-swap. Probably learning from GC, I’d imagine they will re-hide the idols post-swap.

          At least that’s what I think makes sense…

      • Judson Helland

        Yes please. Riding Joe to the finish. (phrasing)

    • Ms. Sweaterfan

      I don’t know what you’re talking about, Joe is totally going to win this thing *covers ears and pours a jumbo glass of self pity wine*

  • StormofCuteness

    @avclub-800d427f7b19cf6f05ec777b2beb9a25
    Let’s see if this works.

  • Judson Helland

    Long time player? This is my first time lol

    • Aw. Adorable.

    • It’s been three weeks. Long enough for me.

      (My bad.)

      • Judson Helland

        Feel like a veteran

    • StormofCuteness

      1st time and you’re in 1st? Soooo jealous.

      • BadPlayer91

        BUT, it can kinda only go downhill from here….

        #terribletruths

        • StormofCuteness

          You’re a half empty kinda guy, I take it. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚

    • Judson Helland

      I discovered survivor in between MvGX and GC. I almost did a team for GC but didn’t. I’m kinda disappointed because I’m pretty sure I would have taken brad and tai.

    • forever1267

      “Like a virgin….”

      • Judson Helland

        Oh yeah. Question. Is it difficult to make out in a dinosaur suit? Asking for a friend.

        • No.

          Answering for a friend.

      • Hornacek

        Don’t kiss other players on the cheek.

  • Reigning champion Jersey Luck needs to make up 7 points to retake his Pick 4 crown. Can reigning champion take the crown back?

    • Diego Armando

      I think Devon and Ali will make up for their lack of early points.

      • Reigning Champion Jersey Luck needs thos two to go down in flames. Reigning Champion Jersey Luck needs the Heroes tribe to have a dominating performance.

        • StormofCuteness

          3rd person? Really?

    • Violina23

      …. Watch and find out. Story at 11

  • Star Z

    Things are gonna change because of the swap though. I seriously regret taking Jessica off my team. Should of kept 3 Healers.

  • Staring at my team and it took me way too long to remember who Ryan was. Can we change that to Alt-Ryan?

    • I bet that’s one of his screen names on Reddit.

  • Violina23

    The shout-out made me WAY too happy. And yes, Mrs. Violina (aka BassManXVI) got a kick out of it too.

    This is the first time I didn’t consider (read: forgot to) change up my team after the first episode. I didn’t realize until Wed. night that I had 3 “Healers” (quotes for @EmAndScoutinBK) so I’m probably pretty lucky they didn’t implode a a tribe before the swap. Which is kinda what I was hoping for after Chrissy’s first episode, and her mathematical argument that 2 is greater than 3…

  • HvHvH: my funeral as the Survivor Fantasy League Queen/

    • StormofCuteness

      This is not good news to me. You’re a good witch!

  • Side Character

    DAS Bus update

    Alycia Swift is pulling ahead of Diego Armando and myself, with a 10-point gap between her fully-intact 1st place team and my 2nd place team (which is now down 2 players). I’m ahead of Diego by a point and that is really only because of Joe and his idol. I was doomed the way things were going this episode because I had both Patrick and Lauren on my team. With a tribal swap on the way, though, who knows what will happen in the sole 3-team league?

  • indescribable hat

    Fan Favourite League

    @godot123:disqus is in the lead with a promising looking team, and corndogshuffle is in second with a team we’ve seen a little less from. @disqus_sjBnbSyo83:disqus is a close third but lost Patrick this week. I’m out of last place!! Purple Tally and Super duper fan are one point apart at fifth and sixth respectively, and are both down to two players as well.

    • StormofCuteness

      And I am 3 for 3 in our 1-on-1. *pout*

      • Diego Armando

        I am 1 for 3 in mine against the witch. Given how badly I got stomped last year, this is encouraging.

        • StormofCuteness

          Ha! I know what you mean though I probably wasn’t clear. All 3 boots were on my team. I am in deep do do.

      • indescribable hat

        ๐Ÿ˜›

    • Maritimer

      Thanks for doing the update I was really tired yesterday and couldn’t talk myself into it (also, if you want to do these generally, go ahead, I feel I’m not creative enough to keep up good commentary all season)

      Also, I think you have the best team by far at this point in the season

  • Alycia Swift

    Wow I’m doing well on all my teams.

    Sorry I haven’t posted much. Trying to pack to move as we just bought house.

    • StormofCuteness

      That’s such a life-changing event! Sending my best to you (moving is stressful)! Also, congrats on your teams.

      • Alycia Swift

        Thanks. Packing has been an adventure. Cleaning the attick in particular. I’m finding a lot of things I did not know we had.

        Me to my husband:
        We have China?

        Why do we have a tent? We don’t camp.

        Why do we have a Jackie Chan action figure?

        • StormofCuteness

          ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ I hated going through things to move. I didn’t have the energy for all the ghosts. I tried to get rid of lots of things, but there are still boxes in the garage I’ve never looked in. Sigh.

          • Alycia Swift

            I have gotten rid of a ton of stuff. Hubby been to Restore to donate (habitat for humanity’s store) and goodwill at lest five times this month.

  • forever1267

    Technically tied for 8th Place, so still in the Top 10. I’ll take it.

  • Saturday Night Palsy

    All goofs aside, I just want to say that this website and the community that supports it never fail to make me feel proud to be a part of the fun. You people are all wonderful and I wish I could hug you all.

    Except for @purplerockjohn:disqus . Fuck that guy.

    • Judson Helland

      I’ll hug you

    • StormofCuteness

      You are such a nice villian after all. *Hugs*

    • Hornacek

      I’m suspicious. Bellhops aren’t usually this complimentary.

      • Bellhops aren’t usually this rude.

    • Do you want a tip?

    • DrVanNostrand

      Agreed on all counts… except maybe one… I’m not much of a hugger.

  • I AM ANGRY ABOUT THE NATIONALS AGAIN

    And I’m participating in the Twitter Boycott so you all have to hear about it.

    • Saturday Night Palsy

      You and me both. Cubs fans are just as awful as White Sox fans. They were just ashamed of themselves for longer.

      • I don’t really know much about Chicago fanbases, all I know is…that this is annoying, every year. Same with the Capitals. Fortunately I still hate the Redskins.

        • Saturday Night Palsy

          As a Red Sox fan I have to say, if it comes down to Yanks/Cubs–I may have to root for the Yankees.

          Man, it felt gross typing that!

          • I grew up on Long Island as a Yankees fan, so I’m going to support them. Sorry, it’s just geography.

          • Saturday Night Palsy

            Fair ’nuff. I mean, you really should be ashamed of yourself, but… Fair ’nuff.

          • Once I went away to college and then stayed here, I kind of disposed of the collective brainwashing we all got during the Jeter/Torre years, and then when all the players I grew up with left the team, I basically stopped caring. But when it comes down to four teams left, old habits die hard.

          • the sky is falling

            I can’t tell which part made you feel gross.
            “As a Red Sox fan” or: “root for the Yankees”

      • Taako From Teevhii

        What did White Sox fans do?

    • StormofCuteness

      Do not hate me, but my fiance has been a Cubs fan his entire life. That game tonight was exhausting, and I legit felt badly for Nationals fans. Worse, as a lifelong Dodger fan, I have to go through being on opposite sides for the next week. Last year, I wanted the win for him, but I don’t think he realizes all bets are off now. It could get ugly.

      • Oh, I’ll never hold athletic fandoms against anybody. We gotta do what we gotta do in sports. (Well, okay, I hold some tennis fandoms in reproach, but we don’t need to get into that here.) And yes, that game was grueling. Happy for your husband, though…those close, long games are exhilarating when you’re on the winning side.

        But I am also always here for household wars when family members have to face off. Because, at base, I’m an evil person.

        • StormofCuteness

          I just explained it to him. It is ON!

    • I’m also in on the boycott, because Twitter is the worst. I’ll be using my valuable goofing-off time in the comments here today instead.

      • DrVanNostrand

        I’m boycotting Twitter the way I’m boycotting Hobby Lobby. I haven’t had to change my behavior at all, which is my favorite type of activism.

  • Judson Helland

    Meh. As long as the dodgers don’t win I’m happy

    • Purple Rock Emma

      I was rooting for the Nats (that replay was dumb. I get it, but it was dumb) but I’m in this line.

    • Taako From Teevhii

      I think I can only root for the Astros. Cubs and Yankees are right out. A Dodgers win doesn’t make me happy but it doesn’t make me mad.

      • Purple Rock Emma

        You know how people keep making jokes about the Cubs winning in 2016 knocked us into the Upside Down and that’s why everything is terrible? I don’t like it, but I think the Yankees winning will put everything back to normal.

        • StormofCuteness

          Yankees?!!! Hell to the no!

  • Ethan Kyle

    Uh for the record my pre-ep one and post ep one teams are both there the one with the “4 goddamn” is the post one and Goddamn 4 is the pre
