Part of the first group of managers to join the league in 2015, Danny took his spot in the BlackSheep Division. His team was a model of consistency for the first three seasons in the league, finishing in the middle of the pack, but just out of the playoffs. Danny was finally able to push HandsLikeWayneMello over the hump and into the playoffs in 2018, falling in the semi-finals. His team regressed in 2019, but bounced back in 2020 again falling short in the semi-finals. He continued the trend in 2021 with another semi-final loss. Last year, against all odds, Danny was finally able to secure the BlackSheep Division Title. Can he be the first to go back to back?

One of the first managers of the BlackSheep Division, Mike is a seasoned fantasy football veteran and always a contender for a top spot in the division. He was able to take his team to the promised land in 2017 when he won the BlackSheep Division title. Since then, he has been unable to repeat that success. He hoped to turn things around after a disappointing 2020 campaign, but found himself finishing the season in last place. Is it time to retire? Middle Finger fell just short of becoming the first 2 time Black Sheep Champion, losing in the final to Danny Dorgan. Bouv will continue his quest for that second title in 2023.
BlackSheep Division Record: 60-51
Alex joined the league in 2015 for the first season of the BlackSheep Division. After an awful 2015 finishing 4-10, Alex rebounded to win the title the very next year. Alex didn't see the playoffs again until 2019 where his Stars + Stripes were eliminated in the semi-finals. He had another strong showing again in 2020 with a 3rd place finish and a playoff run in 2021 and 2022. After a 6 year drought, can Alex get back the belt he lost?

Matt joined the league in 2016 with his rival, Manager Jerome Penha. He then went on an impressive playoff streak, to include his 2018 championship. That streak came to an end in 2020 when he failed to make the playoffs for the first time. To add insult to injury, his rival won the championship while he watched from the sidelines. In 2021 Sobral finished the regular season in 1st, while his rival finished in last. Hopefully that was enough for Sobral, because he was unable to make it to the final. In 2022 he became he spokesman for www.BentCarrot.com and finished the season in 4th.

Ryan entered the TCT in 2022 as the newest addition to the Blacksheep Division. A fantastic rookie campaign, he led his team to the playoffs. I Got Bouv'd was eliminated in the first round, but not after Ryan proved he belonged in the division. Benoit will look to improve on his success from last season in 2023.
BlackSheep Division Record: 9-7
Steve joined the league in 2015 as a manager in the BlackSheep Division. Steve has become known for his hit or miss style of play. For every successful season he's had, he's followed it up with a 10th place season. From worst to first, Gwozdz was able to right the ship and push the Polish-Hammer into the finals, winning his first title in 2021. In 2022 Polish-Hammer could not replicate the success of the prior season and ended the year with 6th place. Steve seems to have found his footing in the division and will be a contender for the title this season.
BlackSheep Division Record: 46-64
Bob joined the league in 2016 as a manager in the BlackSheep Division. He showed up his first year in, finishing 3rd, then repeating another 3rd place finish the next year. He pushed into the final the following year, but fell short, taking 2nd place in 2018. In 2019 he was bounced from the quarter-finals. He missed the playoffs for the first time in 2020. In 2021 he found himself in the Toilet Bowl. The trend continued last year when he failed to make the playoffs for the 3rd year in a row. Bob vows to break that streak going into this year.
BlackSheep Division Record: 46-50
Zach had one of the strongest showings for a rookie in the league. After making it to the playoffs, he was named the 2021 Rookie of the Year. Zach could not replicate that success in 2022, just missing the playoffs. This season Adrian Beterson hopes to prove that last year was just a sophomore slump.
BlackSheep Division Record: 15-15
Jerome joined the league in 2016. He enjoyed instant success in his first 3 seasons finishing 2nd, 2nd, and 4th. He took a tumble in 2019 failing to make the playoffs for the first time. In 2020 he rebounded to take home the belt. In 2021, Jerome had a brutal season. He finished the year in last place with the most points in the league. Did The Equalizer* rebound from that awful season? No. Not at all. He repeated as Toilet Bowl Champion. After back to back awful seasons, he can only move up from here right? Right?
