The first week of FPL for the new year has concluded, with Bravado's Johnny "JT" Theodosiou topping the board for his second time having won 36 of his 57 matches played. Last week's winner, Russian transplant Maxim "wippie" Shepelev, sits just twelve points behind JT, winning 30 matches out of the 48 he played over the past week.

While leaf comfortably sat in first place, the remaining slots in the top five were heavily contested, with Polen edging out second place with a two point lead over leaf's Masked teammate Mike "Swisher" Schmid.
