Saturday Night Live Fantasy League: Episode 44x11: James McAvoy & Meek Mill

January 29, 2019

Saturday Night Live Fantasy League presented by Trivia Club, is a Fantasy League like no other. Like Fantasy Football for the comedy nerd, participants draft cast members and prospective hosts before the start of the season and then are awarded points based of their performance through a scoring system. For additional points, before the start of each episode participants can guess which two songs they think the musical guest will perform. Since the beginning, this television institution has become the first step in the major leagues of comedy stardom, and with over forty seasons of familiar traditions, we’ve found a way to add maths to comedy and somehow make that a fun game to play. 

Here’s the points breakdown for our Fantasy League of Saturday Night Live episode 11 of Season 44, which originally aired on January 26th, 2019.

Thank you to Megan M. for breaking down the points on this episode! We’ve caught back up to Saturday Night Live, in time for a few more consecutive episodes, so keep an eye on Fantasy League point breakdowns! Now that the season has reached the half-way point it is certainly an interesting race atop The Chase for the Hartman Trophy! The Billion Dollar Murrays still lead, but that lead has fallen away in these last two weeks to the point where our returning Champs led by Rob M., Hunter the Hungry’s Gotta Eat, is now within just thirty-three points!

James McAvoy proved an incredibly Scottish host in all the best ways! The next two episodes have also been announced, and after a good run of correct picks we were in fact stumped! On February 9th, Halsey it seems gets the A Star Is Born spot, cause sure why not, as both the Musical Guest and Host! Having not even remembered hearing Halsey speak… I am very interested in seeing her as part of the show! Don Cheadle will also be hosting! It’s not the House of Lies alumni that we expected but I don’t hate it! Gary Clark Jr. will be his Musical Guest on February 16th!

LAST EPISODE: RACHEL BROSNAHAN

NEXT EPISODE: HALSEY
