After the roller coaster of upsets and victories in week two, the pack has finally stabilized for week three of league play and given us a better picture of what teams belong where.

However, some teams that do not have a positive win-loss record will be ranked higher than some other teams that do. This is based on the strength of their opponents that they faced, and their performance in said matches. As we enter the final two weeks (and for some teams, their final week) of stage one, all teams will have to be on their game to ensure they can obtain the best seeding possible for the stage playoffs.

Here are Hudsen's power rankings for the third week of the 2019 Overwatch League season.

1. (+1) Vancouver Titans (4-0)

I have the Vancouver Titans Vancouver Titans OWL Rank #2 JJANU Choi Hyeon-woo (최현우) off tank Twilight Lee Joo-seok (이주석) flex support Haksal Kim Hyo-jong (김효종) dps SeoMinSoo Seo Min-Soo (서민수) dps Bumper Park Sang-beom (박상범) tank SLIME Kim Sung-jun (김성준) support finally sitting atop the league standings despite the Excelsior showing similar dominance of their opponents and sitting at the top of the standings. Regardless, they look damn near unstoppable (despite giving up a map to the Valiant) and I don't expect them to slow down even approaching the stage playoffs.

2. (-1) New York Excelsior (6-0)

Allowing maps to be taken by the Dynasty and the Defiant may show upcoming opponents that the New York Excelsior New York Excelsior OWL Rank #3 JJoNak Bang Sung-hyeon (방성현) flex support MekO Kim Tae Hong off tank Libero Kim Hye-sung (김혜성) dps Nenne Jeong Yeon-kwan dps Mano Kim Dong-gyu (김동규) tank ANAMO Jeong Tae-seong (정태성) support are still in fact beatable. However, the Shock are not going to be an easy team to walk over. I expect the Excelsior to come out on all cylinders and ready to rumble because that match is going to be one of the best to premiere all week.

3. (+1) San Francisco Shock (3-2)

After a great turn around in Week 3 with good showings against the Justice and Spark, the San Francisco Shock San Francisco Shock OWL Rank #1 ChoiHyoBin Choi Hyo-Bin (최효빈) off tank Viol2t Park Min-ki flex support sinatraa Jay Won dps Rascal Kim Dong-jun (김동준) dps super Matthew DeLisi tank Moth Grant Espe support are back in the top three of this week's power rankings. I am very excited to see how they fare against the Excelsior, despite them looking nearly unstoppable. Still, they must carry that momentum into their next game against the Eternal, who are also looking very strong, despite suffering a defeat at the hands of the Reign.

4. (+5) Atlanta Reign (3-1)

A dominant showing over the Eternal has certainly given doubters of the Atlanta Reign Atlanta Reign OWL Rank #10 Daco Seo Dong-hyung (서동형) off tank Dogman Dusttin Bowerman flex support ErsTer Jeong Joon dps BABYBAY Andrej Francisty dps Pokpo Park Hyun-Jun (박현준) tank Masaa Petja Kantanen support something to consider, especially since they had an easier first few weeks than other teams. I expect them to continue to play well against the Gladiators this upcoming week, which in turn can net them a top three spot in next week's rankings if the Shock falter in their matches.

5. (-) London Spitfire (3-2)

With the London Spitfire London Spitfire OWL Rank #5 Bdosin Choi Seung-tae (최승태) flex support Fury Kim Jun-ho (김준호) off tank birdring Kim Ji-hyuk (김지혁) dps Profit Park Joon-yeong (박준영) dps Gesture Hong Jae-hee (홍재희) tank NUS Kim Jong-seok (김종서) support drawing a map and giving up another to the Gladiators in their 2-1 victory, I don't see any reason to move them when looking at last week's standings. However, they will have to be on their game against the Dragons, who some consider a dark horse team in the back half of this stage.

6. (-3) Paris Eternal (2-1)

After their match against the Reign, the Paris Eternal Paris Eternal OWL Rank #17 Greyy Luís Perestrelo flex support SoOn Terence Tarlier dps ShaDowBurn George Gushcha dps lhcloudy Roni Tiihonen tank NiCOgdh Nicolas Moret flex Kruise Harrison Pond support are starting to look like they can be easily predicted and scouted against. I'm not doubting their strength as a team, but I want the Eternal to show some adaptability so they aren't as likely to be defeated like against the Reign.

7. (-) Hangzhou Spark (3-3)

The Hangzhou Spark Hangzhou Spark OWL Rank #4 Ria Park Seong-wook (박성욱) off tank BeBe Yoon Hui-Chang (윤희창) flex support Adora Kang Jae-Hwan (강재환) dps GodsB Kim Kyeon-Bo (김경보) dps Krystal Cai Shilong ( 蔡世龙) dps guxue Xu Qiulin (徐秋林) tank iDK Park Ho-jin (박호진) support managed to find their rhythm against a struggling Gladiators squad after another loss to the Shock. If they can find another win against the Defiant this upcoming week, they will likely be contenders to return to the top five in week four's power rankings.

8. (-) Philadelphia Fusion (3-2)

A win over the Justice and Boombox back in the lineup after an illness is great for Philadelphia Fusion Philadelphia Fusion OWL Rank #6 Boombox Isaac Charles flex support Poko Gael Gouzerch off tank Carpe Lee Jae-hyeok (이재혁) dps EQO Josh Corona dps SADO Kim Su-Min (뜨용) tank neptuNo Alberto González support fans. However, there wasn't much that justified me ranking them any higher after the previous week they had. They play the Valiant next, and a dominant showing can have them contending for the top five once again in next week's rankings.

9. (+2) Dallas Fuel (3-2)

The Dallas Fuel Dallas Fuel OWL Rank #9 uNKOE Benjamin Chevasson flex support NotE Lucas Meissner off tank aKm Dylan Bignet dps ZachaREEE Zachary Lombardo dps OGE Son Min-seok (손민석) tank Closer Jung Won-sik (정원식) support look to be finally stabilizing and getting into their groove. A 3-2 win over the Dragons and another match against them will keep the Fuel on their toes. If they can repeat their victory but not go to another map five, they will continue to climb in the standings for next week.

10. (+1) Shanghai Dragons (2-3)

Watching the replay of YoungJIN walking off of the payload in their series against the Fuel was painful enough and gave them the edge they needed to beat the Shanghai Dragons Shanghai Dragons OWL Rank #16 Luffy Yang Seong-hyeon (양성현) flex support diem Bae Min-seong (배민성) dps YoungJIN Jin Yong-jin dps Gamsu Noh Yeong-jin (노영진) tank DDing Yang Jin-hyeok (양진혁) flex CoMa Son Kyeong-woo (손경우) support . I expect this situation to not happen again and for the Dragons to come fully prepared for this week with plenty of scouting done for their rematch against the Fuel.

11. (-5) Los Angeles Gladiators (1-4)

Like their crosstown rivals, the Los Angeles Gladiators Los Angeles Gladiators OWL Rank #8 Shaz Jonas Suovaara flex support Void Kang Jun-woo (강준우) off tank Hydration João Pedro Goes Telles dps Decay Jang Gui-un (장귀운) dps rOar Gye Chang-hoon tank BigGoose Benjamin Isohanni support have struggled in the past few weeks with losses against the Spark and Spitfire. They have another tough match scheduled against the Reign, and I don't expect them to show any mercy to teams that are showing any weaknesses. After the Reign, they play the Charge to round out their stage. If the Gladiators don't pick up their slack, we might see them at the bottom of the standings at the end of the stage with a 1-6 record.

12. (-2) Seoul Dynasty (2-3)

Taking a map off of the Excelsior in their loss to them but losing to the Uprising makes me question how consistent the Seoul Dynasty Seoul Dynasty OWL Rank #7 ryujehong Ryu Je-hong (류제홍) flex support Michelle Choi Min-hyuk off tank Munchkin Byeon Sang-beom (변상범) dps FITS Kim Dong-eon (김동언) dps Marve1 Hwang Min-seo (황민서) tank tobi Yang Jin-mo (양진모) support roster can produce consistently good results going into the upcoming week and Week 5. They play the Justice as their only match this week, and lost maps to the Justice will give fans and critics alike more doubt to question if this team can make a deep run in the stage playoffs.

13. (+2) Toronto Defiant (3-2)

The Toronto Defiant Toronto Defiant OWL Rank #12 envy Lee Kang-jae (이강재) off tank Neko Park Se-hyeon (박세현) flex support Ivy Lee Seung-Hyun dps im37 Hong Jin (홍진의) dps Yakpung Jo Gyeong-mu tank RoKy Park Joo-seong (박주성) support have had a rather up and down first few weeks, and they've proven themselves to be one of the better mid-table teams. That being said, to finish the stage in the top ten will require good showings against the Hunters and Spark, who are very beatable opponents for them. I've been impressed by how this squad has turned out, but can't rate them much higher than a mid-table team at this point.

14. (+3) Guangzhou Charge (3-2)

Getting two wins against the Mayhem and Valiant are good stepping stones to set the Guangzhou Charge Guangzhou Charge OWL Rank #13 HOTBA Choi Hong-joon off tank Shu Kim Jin-seo flex support Happy Lee Jung-woo (이정우) dps Eileen Ou Yiliang (欧倚良) dps Rio Oh Seung-pyo (오승표) tank Chara Kim Jung-yeon (김정연) support up for a positive end to the first stage. They play the Gladiators as their only match this week, and if they can continue their momentum into Week 5, it's entirely possible this team can finish the stage ranked in the upper half of the rankings.

15. (+1) Boston Uprising (2-3)

Having Fusions back full time for the Boston Uprising Boston Uprising OWL Rank #11 AimGod Min-seok Kwon flex support rCk Richard Kanerva off tank blasé Jeffrey Tsang dps Colourhex Kelsey Birse dps Fusions Cameron Bosworth tank Kellex Kristian Keller support is certainly a sigh of relief considering the roller coaster that occurred with Fusions being suspended, but because we are past that, their recent results must be taken into consideration. A 3-1 win over the Dynasty but 3-1 loss to the Defiant has me hopeful that the Uprising are still on an upward path.

16. (-4) Los Angeles Valiant (0-5)

The Los Angeles Valiant Los Angeles Valiant OWL Rank #14 SPACE Indy Halpern off tank Izayaki Kim Min-chul (김민철) flex support Agilities Brady Girardi dps KSF Kyle Frandanisa dps FCTFCTN Russell Campbell tank Custa Scott Kennedy support really needed wins against the Defiant in Week 2 and the Charge last week, yet. the Valiant once again failed to net a win. I'm unsure what's really going on behind the scenes with this team, but if they go winless in this stage, we are likely going to see some In-N-Out trips being made for some players.

17. (+1) Houston Outlaws (2-3)

With the Houston Outlaws Houston Outlaws OWL Rank #18 Rawkus Shane Flaherty flex support SPREE Alexandre Vanhomwegen off tank Jake Jacob Lyon dps Danteh Dante Cruz dps Muma Austin Wilmot tank Boink Daniel Pence support management reporting that having Bani "accidentally played" in their match against the Mayhem was...interesting to say the least. But their 3-1 victory over the Mayhem kept them from descending further into the rankings. Whether or not they can rise again in next week's rankings will be determined if they can find a good footing against a struggling Valiant roster.

18. (-1) Chengdu Hunters (2-2)

The Chengdu Hunters Chengdu Hunters OWL Rank #15 Kyo Kong Chunting (孔春亭) flex support Elsa Luo Wenjie (罗文杰) off tank Jinmu Yi Hu (易虎) dps YangXiaoLong Zhang Zhihao (章智浩) dps Ameng Ding Menghan (丁蒙涵) tank Yveltal Li Xianyao (李先曜) support have looked like they aren't able to get much into motion as of late. A 4-0 loss to the Dragons and a Defiant roster that's on the rise doesn't appear to show much promise for the Chinese roster that continues to deviate from the league standard 3-3 compositions.

19. (-) Florida Mayhem (1-4)

Two losses to the Charge and Outlaws in Week 3 indicate that the Florida Mayhem Florida Mayhem OWL Rank #20 Xepher Koo Jae-mo (구재모) off tank HaGoPeun Jo Hyeon-woo (조현우) flex support Sayaplayer Ha Jeong-woo (하정우) dps BQB Lee Sang-bum (이상범) dps Fate Koo Pan-seung (구판승) tank Kris Choi Jun-soo (최준수) support 's victory over the Fusion in Week 2 was a bit of a wash. But as a consolation prize for them, they've kept up with their competition enough to not fall to the very bottom of the rankings.

20. (-) Washington Justice (0-4)

The Washington Justice Washington Justice OWL Rank #19 SanSam Kim Hyang-ki (김향기) off tank sleepy Nikola Andrews flex support Corey Corey Nigra dps Ado Cheon Ki-Hyeon (천기현) dps janus Song Jun-hwa tank ArK Hong Yeon-joon support have shown signs of improvement, and it's great for more competition in the league. But with each passing week, all other teams are getting better as well. And once again the Justice haven't shown any signs that they are capable of leaving the bottom spot in the power rankings.

Weekly wrap-up

There are going to be a lot of good matches to watch this upcoming week. The Eternal - Titans match is one that I think should absolutely not be missed, as well as the Excelsior - Shock game. Those are the two marquee matches to not miss in my opinion.

The first match of Week 4 will see the Reign take on the Gladiators.
