Who are the Overwatch League coaches' top teams after Week 9?

Tyler Demogenes/Activision-Blizzard Entertainment

The Dallas Fuel finally made their return in the second weekend of online-only games for the Overwatch League, and it was an extremely Dallas Fuel kind of series. First, the boys in blue got 3-0'd by the Los Angeles Gladiators, who seem to be shaping up as potential championship contenders. After that, though, the Fuel recovered and eked out an exciting 3-2 win against a quality Los Angeles Valiant team. As a result, they're moving on up in our weekly Overwatch League coaches poll.

Meanwhile, the San Francisco Shock made a convincing return to form, beating the Valiant 3-1 a week after losing to both Los Angeles teams. The Philadelphia Fusion took care of business as well, but are any of them capable of knocking off the Seoul Dynasty as the coaches' top team?

The Overwatch League coaches poll is built off the responses from coaches from across the Overwatch League. Voters rank the teams from best to worst, and those votes are compiled into aggregate rankings. The coaches poll will come out weekly during the OWL season.
