Writers: Another fine week from Tehol Beddict and his lead is now 14.5. He has been known to fall asleep with a big lead, though, so all hope is not lost for the rest of the league. Tehol also moved up to 18th in the overall standings, his highest placing of the year. Check out all the writers’ week 20 stats.
