    Smooth Moves by The Lungbutters

    • Not quite the best, but pretty darn good. Matt Asiata had the second-highest RB score of the week and the second-highest RB score in the league this season with 27 points.
    • With 25 points, Antonio Brown had the highest WR score of the week and the fourth-highest WR score in the league this season.
    • With 25 points, Matt Ryan ranked ninth in the league in scoring.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. The Lungbutters won despite having only 4 of their 9 starters exceed their projected points.
    • Had the team's highest starter/bench scoring ratio of the season and ninth-highest in the league this year, starting 109 points versus 27 points from players left on the bench.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Team Denietolis may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by The Lungbutters. 
    • The Carolina Panthers Defense scored the fewest points in the league this week with a season-low -4 points.
    • The 1 point scored by LeSean McCoy was a season-low for both scoring and for his performance against projections. He reached only 7.7% of his 12.96 projected points this week.
    • It's times like these when it's important to support your players when they're down. So move the mouse pointer away from the DROP button. Stephen Gostkowski scored a season-low 2 points, 21.2% of his projected 9.42, which is his lowest percentage of the year.
    • Jeremy Maclin had two season-lows this week. He scored a season-low 5 points and recorded only 54.3% of his 9.20-point projection.

    • If The Lungbutters played Team Denietolis every week, they would be 2-2 this season.
    • Besides Team Denietolis, The Lungbutters would have defeated four other teams this week.
    • Were they resting their players for this week? The Lungbutters would have defeated Team Denietolis 114 - 79 had they played each other last week.

    • If The Lungbutters had played every team in the league each week, they would be 19-9.
    • Team Denietolis would have been beaten by every other team in the league this week.
