Game Notes

  • Looks like teams bring their A game when they see them on the schedule. Of the losses Lonestar has had, three were against opponents who topped their season scoring average that week.
  • The tragedy of being an underachiever is that Lonestar knows what they should be, but reality keeps telling them that they're wrong. They scored 85.64 points against a projected 97.28 and underachieved for the fifth time this season, including the last three weeks in a row.
  • Despite being on the winning team, C.J. Anderson had a season-low 1.70 points against a projected 11.35 and has now underachieved in three straight games.
  • FANTASY JUNKIE had two starters score more points than the highest-scoring starter for Lonestar.
  • The Toyota Hall of Fame recommends Lonestar go on a WINNING streak, instead of a LOSING streak. That one word makes a surprising amount of difference.
  • The margin of victory was the second-largest in the league this week.
  • FANTASY JUNKIE outdid their projection in the win, while Lonestar came in under their point expectation. FANTASY JUNKIE is now 2-0 when overachieving, while Lonestar falls to 0-5 when failing to reach their projection.
  • Lonestar did not reach their season average of 92.14 points this week, bringing in 85.64 points.
