Behind him in second now is Mean Machines quarterback Jan Weinreich in 2nd with 406 yards in only two games. He had a 251 yard day against the Black Knights. Bumped down to 3rd with his 404 yards after sitting out last week’s game is Stockholm’s Tim Morovick. Jake Sisson of the Örebro Black Knights is 4th with 203 yards while Carlstad’s backup QB Alf Ransjö rounds out the top 5 with 164 yards.

Black Knights running back Kasper Wedberg has 188 yards in four games while his counterpart with Stockholm, Tim Göransson has 183 now and is 3rd. Mean Machines QB Tim Morovick, who was idle last weekend, has slipped down to 4th with 154 yards. Crusaders RB Emil Östlund has 147 yards and is 5th.
Stockholm’s Edvin Almeida Taborda has taken over first among all receivers in Sweden with his 208 yards and league-best 6 TDs. Teammate Ben von Jagow had a big day last week with 116 yards and now sits 2nd with 194 yards. Carlstad’s Jacob Bergwall is now the 3rd leading receiver with 185 yards while another Mean Machines receiver, Pär Lindelöf is 4th. He now has 168 yards.
