Week 5 splits up the Nationals

It's sad to see teammates part ways. Sometimes it's a trade or free agency. Other times it's someone being sent down to the minors. In this case, it's one member of the Washington Nationals moving into first place of the MLB Players Fantasy Football League while another is sitting in last. Adam Dunn has jumped into the top spot of the National Division at 3-1 while teammate Ryan Zimmerman is stuck at the bottom at 0-4. This past week, Dunn beat B.J. Ryan 120-115, but Zimmerman had the lowest score of the league in an 85-44.5 loss to Brad Lidge. We'll see what happens this week if Dunn increases his lead or if Zimmerman can get his first victory.

There's more good news in the All-Female Fantasy Football League. Prior to Week 3 we had the birth of another future Fantasy owner when Ashley Phagan and her husband Kris gave birth to their first child, a healthy little boy named Conner Michael. Then on the eve of Week 4, Kim Broder got engaged. Knowing her, the wedding will not be during football season. I can't wait to see what happens this week. Unfortunately for Kim, the joyous occasion was not followed with a Fantasy victory as she lost 113-74 to Kristine Griffin. After starting 2-0, Kim needs to turn things around and end this two-game losing streak.
