Smooth Moves by Brian's Boss Team

  • If this were a dream sequence, you'd hear a deep voice announce, "Brian's Boss Team, the Toyota Hall of Famer." But it's not.
  • The 31.94 points scored by Drew Brees was the fourth-highest QB score of the week and is the ninth-highest QB score in the league this season.
  • Coby Fleener scored 23.90 points, the second-highest TE score of the week and the second-highest TE score in the league this season.
  • Brian's Boss Team appears to be some sort of fantasy prophet in the making. Christine Michael, who was picked up by Brian's Boss Team, scored 25.10 points against a projected 14.96, topping his projection by 67.8%.
  • With 27.12 points, Jarvis Landry ranked seventh in the league in scoring among WRs this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • 154.16 seems a lot higher when you're on the losing side of it. And the Toyota Hall of Fame knows you know that.
  • Left Darren Sproles on the bench, where he scored 25.34 points and surpassed his scoring projection by 101.9%, the highest percentage of any player on the team.
  • Should have started Tyrod Taylor, who underachieved, but still outscored the starting QB with 16.36 against a projected 18.28.
  • Russell Wilson has scored below his projection in every game this season after scoring 16.02 points against a projected 27.54 this week.
  • Yellow Blackbirds picked up Jacob Tamme, who then fell short of his 9.95-point projection by scoring 5.80 points.

What If

  • If Brian's Boss Team played Yellow Blackbirds every week, they would be 3-0 this season.
  • Brian's Boss Team would have beaten five other teams besides Yellow Blackbirds this week.
  • Had they played each other last week, Brian's Boss Team would have defeated Yellow Blackbirds 129.32 - 118.18.
  • Brian's Boss Team would be 1-1 if they played the same schedule as Yellow Blackbirds.
  • If Brian's Boss Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 18-9.
  • Yellow Blackbirds would have lost to three other teams besides Brian's Boss Team this week.
  • Yellow Blackbirds would be 0-2 if they played the same schedule as Brian's Boss Team.
