    U - G - L - Y. Johnny's 8-Ball has no alibi, as they had a lackluster showing and lost to Fourth Down Syndrome 111.28 to 90.89.

    Smooth Moves by Fourth Down Syndrome

    • Martellus Bennett scored 19.90 points, the highest TE score of the week and the fifth-highest TE score in the league this season.
    • Made the right move in benching Torrey Smith, who had 3.50 points, the lowest total of any starting WR on Fourth Down Syndrome.
    • What do Apache helicopters, F-117 Nighthawks and Emmanuel Sanders have in common? They are all dangerous aerial weapons. He ranked fifth in the league in scoring among WRs this week with 23.50 points.
    • Zac Stacy had his highest scoring output of the season with 14.60 points.
    • By scoring 11.00 points, Justin Tucker beat his 8.68 projected points by 26.7%.

    Toyota Missed Opportunities

    • Johnny's 8-Ball should get prescription glasses. At least we assume that's why they didn't bother reading the expert articles from the Toyota Hall Of Fame.
    • Well, that's embarrassing. Left Alex Smith on the bench, where he ranked 10th in the league in scoring with 29.89 points.
    • Johnny's 8-Ball had 8 starters fail to reach their projections.
    • Note to self: don't start a player when they're going to have their worst game of the season. Matthew Stafford had a season-low 12.14 points against a projected 29.88 and underachieved for the second time this season.
    • LeSean McCoy did not meet his 17.43-point projection this week, the second time that's happened this season. His 2.20 points were also a season-low.

    What If

    • Fourth Down Syndrome would be 1-2 if they played Johnny's 8-Ball every week.
    • Besides Johnny's 8-Ball, Fourth Down Syndrome would have defeated four other teams this week.
    • Fourth Down Syndrome would be 1-1 if they played the same schedule as Johnny's 8-Ball.
    • If Fourth Down Syndrome had played every team in the league each week, they would be 15-18.
    • Johnny's 8-Ball would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
    • Timing really is everything. Fourth Down Syndrome would have lost to Johnny's 8-Ball 172.29 - 161.39 had they played each other last week.
    • If they played the same schedule as Fourth Down Syndrome, Johnny's 8-Ball would be 2-0.
    • Johnny's 8-Ball would be 21-12 if they played every team every week.

    Game Notes

    • Johnny's 8-Ball had 54.1% of their total score come from the WR position (49.15 points).
    • Fourth Down Syndrome beat Johnny's 8-Ball at the top, with two of their starters outscoring the leading point-getter for Johnny's 8-Ball.
    • Fourth Down Syndrome got 21.20 points from their TEs, the highest combined scoring output from the TE position for any team this week.
    • The margin of victory was the third-largest in the league this week.
    • Johnny's 8-Ball could not close out the win even with the help of Michael Crabtree, who scored 19.40 points, the 10th-highest score among all WRs in the league for the week.
    • Despite being on the winning team, Aaron Rodgers had a season-low 16.48 points against a projected 27.88 and underachieved for the second time this season.
    • Maybe pop in the tape of the best game of the season to feel better. Antonio Gates had a season-low 1.30 points in the win against a projected 10.69 and scored below his projection for the first time this season.
    • Fourth Down Syndrome got the win despite Jordy Nelson having a season-low 8.40 points and falling short of his projection for the first time this season.
