    Smooth Moves by Captain Vaquero

    • Benched RB Andre Williams, who scored fewer points than any RB in the starting lineup with 1.80.

    • Ben Roethlisberger had the fourth-highest score of any player on Captain Vaquero this season, leading the team with 15.94 points.
    • In scoring 11.80 points, Alshon Jeffery put up his largest point total of the year.
    • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Captain Vaquero won despite having only 4 of their 10 starters exceed their projected points.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Redskins 4Life may have missed the opportunity for a win, but they gained an opportunity to be mercilessly taunted by Captain Vaquero. 
    • Made a mistake in not starting the Atlanta Falcons Defense, which ranked second in the league in scoring and topped their scoring projection by 387.4%, the seventh-highest percentage in the league.
    • Did not start Shaun Suisham, who beat his scoring projection with 15.00 points against a projected 8.18.
    • Torrey Smith has scored below his projection in every game this season after scoring 2.50 points against a projected 7.43 this week.
    • 8 of the starters on Redskins 4Life underperformed versus their projections.

    • Redskins 4Life would have lost to 15 other teams besides Captain Vaquero this week.
    • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Captain Vaquero would have lost to Redskins 4Life 98.06 - 77.68.
    • Redskins 4Life would be 1-1 if they played the same schedule as Captain Vaquero.
    • If they played every team every week, Redskins 4Life would be 15-36.
