Team Control

The seed that a team controls is the worst seed that team could get if they win out. These are often mutually exclusive because it is impossible for teams that play each other in future weeks to both win out. If a team changed controlled seed from last week, last week’s seed is noted in parentheses.

Teams that control the 1 seed:
NONO PITPIT

Teams that control the 2 seed:
GBGB(3) KCKC

Teams that control the 3 seed:
LARLAR SEASEA(2) BUFBUF(4)

Teams that control the 4 seed:
NYGNYG TENTEN

Teams that control the 5 seed:
CLECLE

Teams that control the 6 seed:
TBTB MIAMIA LVLV

Teams that control the 7 seed:
MINMIN ARIARI(5) INDIND

Teams that could win out and still miss the playoffs:
WASWAS PHIPHI DALDAL CHICHI DETDET ATLATL CARCAR SFSF
NENE NYJNYJ BALBAL CINCIN HOUHOU JAXJAX DENDEN LACLAC
