Smooth Moves by Shinsanity

  • Le'Veon Bell didn't have the best score of the week, but there ain't no shame in his game. He had 25.50 points, the second-highest RB score of the week and the sixth-highest RB score in the league this season.
  • The 19.14 points scored by Eli Manning, who Shinsanity picked up this week, beat his projected point total of 10.99 by 74.2%.
  • Apparently playing within themselves was good enough. Shinsanity won despite having only 4 of their 10 starters exceed their projected points.
  • Shinsanity won even though all three of their WRs scored below their projected points.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • If only we provided some kind of tool, like weekly articles, that would help James secure a victory. Oh, WAIT, we do.
  • Did not start Owen Daniels, who scored 8.45 points and beat his projected point total by a team-leading 33.9%.
  • Whoever gave you this advice, you might want to lose their number. Picked up and started Joe Flacco, who then scored below his 12.37-point projection with 2.78 points.
  • James had 8 of their 10 starters score less than their projected points.
  • This is how people lose everything in casinos. James thought their luck would change and went back to the well with Eddie Lacy. However, he scored 5.65 points against a projected 11.74 and has now underachieved in three straight games.

What If

  • Shinsanity would be 2-2 if they played James every week.
  • Shinsanity would have beaten six other teams besides James this week.
  • Shinsanity would be 3-0 if they played the same schedule as James.
  • Shinsanity would be 27-9 if they played every team every week.
  • James would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • And they say procrastination doesn't pay off! Had they played each other last week, Shinsanity would have lost to James 154.71 - 137.50.
  • If they played the same schedule as Shinsanity, James would be 2-1.
  • If they played every team every week, James would be 23-13.

Game Notes

  • Shinsanity had three starters who scored more points than the highest-scoring starter for James.
  • James scored the fewest points in the league this week and had the lowest score in the league this season.
  • Shinsanity scored 115.84 points against a projected 113.89 and has overachieved every week this season.
  • It was the fourth-biggest margin of victory in the league this season at 54.11 points.
  • This must be how Jay Leno feels with a garage full of high performance cars. Shinsanity got a combined 45.30 points from their RBs, their highest combined scoring output from the RB position this season.
  • The loss snapped a three-game win streak by James.
  • James got their lowest combined scoring output from the WR position this season with only 31.90 points this week.
