Rankings based on how well they have done in fantasy up to this point
Cory has done basically everything up to this point in terms of fantasy except for physical fighting. That looks to change this next week whenever him and Nelson get into an altercation after the first round of the elimination this past week. He will continue to carry your team as long as he can beat Shane this week in the elimination.
Ashley makes a jump this week in the rankings after she showed that she's better than the other underdog girls at puzzles and found a way to manipulate Amanda into giving her the win the elimination.
Nicole proved her physical dominance against Amanda and Ashley after dragging them both towards her in an attempt to beat them in the first round of the elimination and outlasted Amanda in the second elimination. With her romance with Laurel, she will continue to climb the rankings as long as puzzles don't hold her back in the competition.
Shane showed he's a true veteran on the underdog team by being the first guy to finish their puzzle, even if it was oven an hour into the challenge. He will continue to gain drama points if he can manage to beat Cory in the elimination this week.
Even with this past week being all about the underdogs, Laurel found a way to grab some points with her romance with Nicole. I don't see any way that she loses to Camilla in the elimination this next week, but I've been wrong before.
Nelson was the player that most impressed me this past week. He made a deal with and manipulated both Cory and Shane basically giving himself an easy win in the first elimination. Expect more fantasy production this next week as his and Cory's altercation goes down before the second elimination.
Camilla only drops this week because it was an underdog episode, but she's still a solid fantasy player with her romance with Cory and involved in a lot of drama. The only question is can she become the first competitor to beat Laurel in an elimination?
Darrell was more in the background this past episode, which is what he is in most episodes that aren't champ elimination days. It's going to be a great battle between him and CT in the elimination this week and I'm excited to see who wins.
This next week CT will be going up against Darrell in what could be the biggest elimination in Challenge history. Can he make it through Darrell to get himself to the final?
Who I believe will be the top scoring male and female in fantasy this week.
Cory Wharton: I'm sorry Shane fans, but I think Cory will find a way to beat Shane this week. With an elimination win and a physical fight under his belt this week, he's a shoo-in for the most points this week.
Laurel Stucky: I find it hard to believe that there's anyway that Laurel loses to Camilla in an elimination. Also Laurel and Nicole's relationship has been heating up over the last couple weeks which will gain her more points.
Camilla Nakagawa: As much as I think that Camilla will lose to Laurel, I still think there's a possibility with this elimination. I also think she'll be just as involved in drama and her romance with Cory which will gain her a lot of points.
