Here we are- Week 6 of the 2020 UKFL is in the books! So let’s take a look at the action. Remember, you can always reach out to us on Twitter if you have any questions about the league. As with each week, a few messages from us and the first playoff picture of the season. Still plenty of time to go if you aren’t in there!
2020 UKFL Week 6 Highest Score
The highest score this week was in the Paul Gascoigne division. User jonfalco amassed a score of 210.2. I’m sure you want to see their roster. If you don’t then…. skip over the next bit.

The Undefeated Club
Now we are at Week 6, I thought it might be a good time to check in on how many undefeated players we still have. Last week there were 17 of you, now there are just 7 of you!
That deserves a shoutout- so can the following please take a bow!
- alexharker1 (Gary Lineker)
- SteveRams (Martin Johnson)
- 6EPC (Jonny Wilkinson)
- matt1408 (Jonny Wilkinson)
- MattyS (Steve Raynes)
- mackito (Chris Kamara)
- RhysMaybeIggy (Steve Redgrave)
With two undefeated in Jonny Wilkinson, it’s interesting that they are actually scheduled to face each other this week!
The first playoff picture is below. This might be slightly different from what you are seeing in Sleeper. The reason being that we give a spot for the top scorer, and in some cases they might be a little further down the table.
We have had a few people ask why we set the playoffs to work the way that they do. The reason that we want to include a high scorer (and infact, have them as the second seed) is because that way there is something to aim for.
For example, in the Mo Farah division, user CanadianDave is currently 2-4 and would be out of the playoffs. Here, he is comfortably the second-highest scorer in his division, so he deserves a chance to win it all- he has just been unlucky with matchups.
If you are unsure, please ask. If your name isn’t below- there is still PLENTY of time to turn things around.
The playoffs will work in the same way as last year:
- You need to enter a team into the Sleeper app (the result of that in-app game doesn’t matter)
- Teams face everyone in the matchup they are put into
- Highest scores advance from each matchup
So that’s the recap for this week. Hopefully we get some more good action next week on the field.
UKFL3: Signups Are Open
Alot of you have signed up for next year, but there are alot of you haven’t.
Remember, you have to signup each year that you want to participate. So head over and signup so you don’t forget! Don’t be that guy that slides into the DMs right at the start of the draft asking if you signed up and misses playing next year.
To date, we have raised £370 (with another £79.00 gift aid) so thank you so much! We’ve also seen some people have made donations to personal charities for them- so that’s great too!
If you want to make a donation, then you can do so here.
COVID Affected Games
This week we saw another game affected by COVID. We made a post about our approach to them for this season. Luckily there haven’t been any postponements this year, but in case there are please take a look at the rules!
To make it simple:
- You can enter replacements as many times as you like (your last valid one for each player will be taken). I.E. If you have 4 players in the game, you can enter a sub for each player
- The substitution ONLY takes effect if the game is cancelled. If for any other reason your player is out then no substitution will be made.
