    Porcupine Speedboat picked up their third consecutive win when they defeated Team Denietolis 103 to 79. They got a boost from Andrew Luck, who got the highest point total by a player this season. The streak is the result of some high scoring by Porcupine Speedboat, who owns the highest overall point total in the league this season and is averaging 114.33 points per matchup. Adding insult to injury, Team Denietolis had a starter score zero points (the Carolina Panthers Defense). Team Denietolis goes to 2-1 and stays in second place. Porcupine Speedboat stays undefeated and on top of the league after having steamrolled Ted's Top-Notch Team (114 to 73) and Moxiedrinkers (126 to 116).

    Smooth Moves by Porcupine Speedboat

    • Andrew Luck put up video game numbers, scoring a league-high for most points this season with 39 points.
    • With 17 points, Knile Davis, who Porcupine Speedboat picked up this week, beat his 11.24-point projection by 51.2%.
    • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Julius Thomas scored 7 points to rank fourth among TEs in the league this week.
    • Did you use any black magic this week? Porcupine Speedboat was still able to pull out a win with only 3 of their 9 starters exceeding their projected points.
    • The 2nd string may be able to contend for the playoffs by themselves. Porcupine Speedboat won with three players on the bench that did not play this week.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • After that performance, we have to wonder if Team Denietolis cares about becoming a Hall Of Famer at all. That's right, you're being judged by an online recap. 
    • All that glitters is not gold. Picked up Sammy Watkins, who scored 1 point against his projected 9.04.
    • LeSean McCoy did not meet his 15.22-point projection this week, the second time that's happened this season. His 2 points were also a season-low.
    • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Randall Cobb had a season-low 2 points against a projected 9.06 and underachieved for the first time this season.
    • With a season-low 1 point versus a projected 5.50, Zach Ertz failed to meet his projection for the first time this season.

    • If Porcupine Speedboat played Team Denietolis every week, they would be 3-0 this season.
    • Porcupine Speedboat would have beaten four other teams besides Team Denietolis this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? Porcupine Speedboat would have defeated Team Denietolis 126 - 110 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Team Denietolis, Porcupine Speedboat would be 2-0.
    • Porcupine Speedboat would be 19-2 if they played every team every week.
    • Team Denietolis would have lost to three other teams besides Porcupine Speedboat this week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Porcupine Speedboat, Team Denietolis would be 1-1.
    • Team Denietolis would be 13-7-1 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • Hey, I'm sure Porcupine Speedboat appreciates the tough competition. In the loss, Team Denietolis had the fifth-highest losing score in the league this season with 79 points.
    • Porcupine Speedboat has topped their projected point total in every week this season.
    • The 24-point win by Porcupine Speedboat beat the 4.27-point spread.
    • Russell Wilson played well in the loss, ranking fifth in the league in scoring with the highest output of any player on Team Denietolis this season, putting up 25 points.
    • Jeremy Maclin did his best in the loss, ranking second among all WRs in the league with 21 points.
    • Even in the loss, the 17 points scored by DeMarco Murray was the third-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
    • Porcupine Speedboat got the win despite Jordy Nelson having a season-low 5 points and falling short of his projection for the second time this season.
    • Maybe pop in the tape of the best game of the season to feel better. Calvin Johnson had a season-low 8 points in the win against a projected 14.10 and scored below his projection for the second time this season.
