Smooth Moves by Eagles #1

  • Chris Ivory didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 34.60 points, the second-highest RB score of the week and the fifth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • Eagles #1 won despite having only 2 of their 11 starters exceed their projected points.
  • In scoring 16.90 points, T.J. Yeldon put up his largest point total of the year.
  • Eagles #1 won even though all three of their WRs scored below their projected points.
  • Four bench players on Eagles #1 were not playing this week, but they still won the matchup.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Some people are born losers, others develop it over time. Fortunately, there's a cure: Winning
  • Picked up and started Rishard Matthews, who scored a team-worst 24.5% of his projected point total for 1.60 points, which was also last on the team.
  • Lost to Eagles #1, which had their lowest-scoring week of the season.
  • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Mike Evans during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 3.20 points against a projected 10.12 this week.
  • Mason Crosby had two season-lows this week. He scored a season-low 5.00 points and recorded only 60.5% of his 8.27-point projection.

What If

  • If Eagles #1 played G Men every week, they'd be 3-1 this season.
  • Eagles #1 would have beaten four other teams besides G Men this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Eagles #1 would have defeated G Men 192.16 - 164.82.
  • If they played the same schedule as G Men, Eagles #1 would be 0-3.
  • Eagles #1 would be 17-19 if they played every team every week.
  • G Men would have lost to five other teams besides Eagles #1 this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Eagles #1, G Men would be 1-2.
  • G Men would be 14-22 if they played every team every week.

Game Notes
