    • 2-1
    • Weekly Grade: D
    • 84.54
    • Matt's Super Team
    • 1-2
    • Weekly Grade: C
    • 78.5

    Jamaican Butterflies (2-1, 299.40 points) came back from a 12.86-point deficit on Monday night to take down Matt's Super Team 84.54 to 78.50, despite getting just the 11th-highest point total in the league this week. Jamaican Butterflies should feel pretty lucky, winning with just 84.7% of their 99.80 per-game average. As the saying goes, however, luck is when preparation meets opportunity. Jamaican Butterflies has had some beneficial matchups overall, currently in fifth place even though they rank just 10th in total points. It was a painful outing for Matt's Super Team, who fell to 1-2 (268.42 points) after coming up dead last in points.

    Smooth Moves by Jamaican Butterflies

    • Kickers are important too and Adam Vinatieri proved that this week. His 16.00 points was the highest total among kickers for the week and the fourth-highest K score in the league this season.
    • Wisely sat Tony Romo this week, who had 14.08 points, the lowest QB score on the team.
    • Andrew Hawkins scored 12.20 points against a projected 9.10 and has now overachieved in every game this season.
    • Dez Bryant had 19.90 points to lead the matchup in scoring.
    • With only 3 of their 9 starters beating their projected points, Jamaican Butterflies was still able to win.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Yes, your team could have been better. But if you haven't gotten behind the wheel of the bold new Camry yet, that's your real missed opportunity.
    • With 2.00 points against a projected 8.64, Phil Dawson was last on the team in scoring and has now scored below his projection in every game this season.
    • You wish you had a kicker like ours. Jamaican Butterflies won the K position battle, beating Matt's Super Team 16.00 - 2.00.
    • After a season-low 4.40 points against a projected 11.81, Andre Johnson has now scored below his projection in every game this season.
    • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. The Arizona Cardinals Defense had a season-low 4.82 points against a projected 10.97 and underachieved for the second time this season.
