The White Mamba Narrowly Defeats DeSean Jackass to Claim the Top Spot in the League

Week 3

  • The White Mamba
  • 3-0
  • Weekly Grade: A-
  • 105.1
  • DeSean Jackass
  • 1-2
  • Weekly Grade: B+
  • 100.1

The White Mamba put up the highest point total in the league this week on the way to their third win in a row when they slipped by DeSean Jackass 105.10 to 100.10. The streak is due in part to The White Mamba having the highest scoring output in the league at 103.07 points per matchup. With the Carolina Panthers Defense literally not showing up for The White Mamba, it could have been worse. DeSean Jackass remains in eighth place with a 1-2 record. The White Mamba remains undefeated and on top of the league having also beaten DangeRUSS Wilson (108.88 to 97.54) and Matt's Midget Mafia (95.24 to 88.18).

Smooth Moves by The White Mamba

  • The 26.20 points scored by Nick Foles was the third-highest QB score of the week and is the seventh-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Rashad Jennings didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 23.60 points, the second-highest RB score of the week and the fifth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • With 21.00 points, Antonio Brown had the third-highest WR score of the week and the sixth-highest WR score in the league this season.
  • The 16.00 points scored by Adam Vinatieri was the highest K score of the week and is the third-highest K score in the league this season.
  • With 7.70 points, Julius Thomas ranked fourth in the league this week in scoring among TEs.

Toyota Missed Opportunities

  • Remember that thing DeSean Jackass did instead of reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame? Shouldn't have done that. 
  • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Montee Ball had a season-low 2.40 points against a projected 10.76 and underachieved for the second time this season.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. Sammy Watkins had a season-low 1.90 points against a projected 9.19 and scored below his projection for the second time this season.
  • In the midst of a season-low in scoring, Jimmy Graham also did not meet his projected points (5.40 points scored versus 11.65 projected) for the second time this season.
  • With a season-low 4.20 points versus a projected 9.97, Percy Harvin failed to meet his projection for the second time this season.

What If

  • The White Mamba would be 3-0 if they played DeSean Jackass every week.
  • The White Mamba would have been undefeated if they played every team in the league this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? The White Mamba would have defeated DeSean Jackass 95.24 - 86.70 had they played each other last week.
  • The White Mamba would be 2-0 if they played the same schedule as DeSean Jackass.
  • If The White Mamba had played every team in the league each week, they would be 21-6.
  • In addition to The White Mamba, DeSean Jackass would have lost to just one other team this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as The White Mamba, DeSean Jackass would be 0-2.
  • If they played every team every week, DeSean Jackass would be 10-17.

Game Notes

  • Larry Fitzgerald had a season-low 1.40 points against a projected 9.44 in the win and has now scored below his projection in every game this season.
  • Did DeSean Jackass pay admission to see the greatest show on turf? The White Mamba had a league-high for the week with 105.10 points, which is the seventh-highest score in the league this season.
