Smooth Moves by Tu Gar

  • Even if you cried trying to win, you still won. And the Toyota Hall of Fame is proud of Tu Gar either way.
  • The 26.94 points scored by Drew Brees was the second-highest QB score of the week and is the fifth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Sat Ryan Mathews, who scored -0.50 points, fewer than any RB in the starting lineup.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Jordy Nelson posterizing opponents. He had the fourth-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 22.10 points.
  • The 6.90 points scored by Eric Ebron was the fifth-highest point total among TEs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • Somehow, all of your players had two bye weeks this week. The Toyota Hall of Fame calls that a bye bye week. Yes, it's a bad joke, but it's still better than your score.
  • Team 10 had 8 starters fail to reach their projections.
  • Hate to point fingers for why a team loses, but RIGHT HERE. C.J. Anderson had a season-low 4.10 points against a projected 12.63 and scored below his projection for the first time this season.
  • DeAndre Hopkins did not meet his 12.22-point projection this week, the second time that's happened this season. His 5.60 points were also a season-low.
  • With a season-low 3.50 points versus a projected 9.09, Jeremy Maclin failed to meet his projection for the second time this season.

What If

  • Tu Gar would be 3-0 if they played Team 10 every week.
  • Tu Gar would have beaten four other teams besides Team 10 this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Tu Gar would have defeated Team 10 101.92 - 97.82 had they played each other last week.
  • Tu Gar would be 2-0 if they played the same schedule as Team 10.
  • If Tu Gar had played every team in the league each week, they would be 20-7.
  • Team 10 would have lost to five other teams besides Tu Gar this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Tu Gar, Team 10 would be 2-0.
  • If they played every team every week, Team 10 would be 16-11.

Game Notes

  • At 11.04 points, the margin of victory was the tightest of the week.
  • Tu Gar had two starters score more points than the highest-scoring starter for Team 10.
  • The Pittsburgh Steelers Defense may have been on the winning team, but was last in the league in scoring with -1.00 point against a projected 7.65 and has now scored below their projection in every game this season.
  • Even in the loss, the 18.70 points scored by Mark Ingram was the 10th-highest score of any RB in the league this week.
  • Maybe pop in the tape of the best game of the season to feel better. Jeremy Langford had a season-low 4.60 points in the win against a projected 10.97 and scored below his projection for the second time this season.
  • Theo Riddick failed to meet his projected point total, scoring only 4.80 points of his projected 10.35.
  • Although they won, Tu Gar could have scored more and left the 32.50 points from Marvin Jones Jr. on the bench.
  • Each side failed to match their weekly score projections.
