There’s a new team at the top of the NWSL table and the NWSL Power Rankings. Where is everyone else after 11 weeks of the season?

The weekly power rankings will often be different than the NWSL standings, which can be found here.

The Courage are now unbeaten in their last three games after a strong 2-1 win over the then first-place Washington Spirit. Next up, a home meeting with the Dash on Friday.

Change:
Last week: 4

Reign FC got a big 2-0 win over Utah Royals FC in Week 11, but Jess Fishlock left the match injured. Fishlock’s return to the lineup has been key to the team’s recent form, and if she has to miss games, that would be tough for Reign FC.

Utah Royals FC couldn’t get their offense going in Week 11 vs. Reign FC. They have a bye in Week 12 and won’t be in action again until July 12 on the road at Sky Blue FC.

Change: ▲ 1
Last week: 7

Sam Kerr‘s return sparked the Red Stars to a 3-2 win over the Pride in Week 11. The Red Stars hadn’t found the back of the net in her absence, but she’s back now. Kerr leads the NWSL with nine goals, seven of which have come in her last three games.

Change: ▼ 1
