Interpreting Data on the Availability Tool

I am scheduled to fly ATL to LGA on March 5th. Using the availability tool, I note that there are 0 "G" fares, but 2 "V" fares available on that flight. I intepret this to mean that there are no upgrades available for PMU's or miles, but that there are two "segment" upgrades.

Here is my question (assuming the above is correct). Does the 2 "V" fare number mean that there are two additional upgrades available after those of us who have already requested an upgrade receive ours? Or, does this mean that there are only two upgrades total to be granted?

This is the difference between me having a chance or just getting used to Y seats. (I'm flying on a "K" fare).

FWIW, the seat map tool indicates 7 open F seats, though of course I recognize the oft-noted point that those open seats don't translate easily (or at all) into upgrade availability.
