Top 3 teams lead stats in France after Week 6

As we reach just past the midpoint of the 2018 season in France, the passing, receiving and rushing stats are out and there are no clear tendencies.

The top three teams in the league – Thonon Black Panthers, St. Ouen l’Aumône Cougars and La Courneuve Flash – lead the three categories but have not dominated so far.

The Marseilles Blue Stars have four players  among the three categories while the Cougars have three players, and the Black Panthers, Flash and  Bron-Villeurbanne Falcons two each. The Asnieres Molosses and Aix-en-Provence Argonautes have one each. The Rouen Leopards do not have a single player among the top five in any category.
