    Diet Moxie Pulls Out Tense Stunner over Moxiedrinkers, Moves Up to Seventh Place

    Down by 27 points on Monday night, Diet Moxie registered 28 to pull off an upset of Moxiedrinkers 108 to 107. They took advantage of a team-leading 28 points from Jamaal Charles and 23 from Drew Brees. The winless 2008 Lions aren't role models, but no one tell that to Moxiedrinkers. They have yet to crack the win column this year. Moxiedrinkers was coming off a 114 to 78 loss against The Lungbutters and saw their scoring increase this week. With Diet Moxie delivering goose eggs from two of their starters, the result might have been even worse. Diet Moxie (1-3, 319 points) climbs into seventh place and Moxiedrinkers (0-4, 388 points) drops to the cellar.

    Smooth Moves by Diet Moxie

    • Frank Gore didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 22 points, the fourth-highest RB score of the week and the eighth-highest RB score in the league this season.
    • Not the best, but in the conversation. Jamaal Charles ranked sixth in the league in scoring this week with 28 points. It was also the second-highest score of any player on Diet Moxie this season.
    • Keenan Allen scored 13 points, the seventh-highest WR score in the league this week.
    • Diet Moxie won despite having 2 of their 9 starters score zero points.
    • Golden Tate scored a season-high 11 points and beat his scoring projection by 72.4%, which also is a season-high.

    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.
    • Brandin Cooks has now underachieved in three straight games after scoring a matchup-low 3 points against a projected 8.98.
    • The RBs on Moxiedrinkers let them down, getting outgunned by the RBs on Diet Moxie 50 - 15.
    • A heated blanket would be a great gift for Shayne Graham during this cold streak. He scored below his projection in three straight games after scoring 4 points against a projected 8.25 this week.
    • The 5 points scored by Rashad Jennings was a season-low for both scoring and for his performance against projections. He reached only 46.2% of his 10.82 projected points this week.

    What If

    • If Diet Moxie played Moxiedrinkers every week, they would be 1-3 this season.

    • If Diet Moxie had played every team in the league each week, they would be 7-21.

    • If they played the same schedule as Diet Moxie, Moxiedrinkers would be 1-2.
    • Moxiedrinkers would be 13-15 if they played every team every week.
