    Smooth Moves by Goons

    • The second-highest RB score of the week and the second-highest RB score of the season came from Matt Asiata, who scored 28.00 points.
    • Antonio Brown had 25.78 points, the second-highest WR score of the week and the fifth-highest WR score in the league this season.
    • The Miami Dolphins Defense had 16.00 points, the highest DEF score of the week and the third-highest score among DEF in the league this season.
    • Sat Bobby Rainey, who scored 1.80 points, fewer than any RB in the starting lineup.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Goons won despite having only 3 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Not reading the expert articles from the Hall Of Fame. And if they did, maybe they should pay better attention when they read.
    • DR left the 17.90 points scored by Reggie Wayne on the bench this week. He beat his projected point total by 159.4%, the sixth-highest percentage in the league.
    • Should have started Fred Jackson, who underachieved, but still had the most points of any RB on the team with 8.50 against a projected 9.32.
    • Andre Johnson scored 6.10 points against a projected 10.33 and has now underachieved in every game this season.
    • 8 of the 9 starters scored less than their projected points.

    What If

    • Goons would be 3-1 if they played DR every week.
    • Besides DR, Goons would have defeated six other teams this week.
    • Had they played each other last week, Goons would have defeated DR 114.80 - 88.12.
    • Goons would be 1-2 if they played the same schedule as DR.
    • Goons would be 24-12 if they played every team every week.
    • DR would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
    • DR would be 1-2 if they played the same schedule as Goons.
    • If they played every team every week, DR would be 13-23.

    Game Notes

    • Maybe the league is colluding against them. All three of the losses for DR this season have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
    • DR has underachieved for three straight weeks, having scored 59.50 points against a projected 99.50 this week.
    • With 59.50 points, DR scored the fewest points in the league this week and had the lowest score of any team this season.
    • The 58.82-point margin of victory was the biggest of the season for Goons and second-largest in the league this season.
    • The 118.32 points scored by Goons is their highest score of the season and the sixth-highest in the league this season.
    • The RBs on DR collectively had their worst week of the season with only 7.30 points.
    • Goons beat DR at the top, with two of their starters outscoring the leading point-getter for DR.
    • Although Goons won, it was no thanks to Kendall Wright, who scored 4.50 points and has now scored below his projection in three straight weeks.
