Smooth Moves by Doug's Wondrous Team

  • A higher score than your opponent is a guaranteed way to win each week. Thank the Toyota Hall of Fame for that valuable insight.
  • Special teams just got even more special this week, thanks to Matt Prater. His 15.00 points was the highest total among kickers for the week and the fifth-highest K score in the league this season.
  • Doug's Wondrous Team saw their third-largest single-week point total by a player this season with Aaron Rodgers scoring 45.68 points. The score was also high enough to rank third in the league.
  • Look, there in the sky. Is it a bird? Is it a plane? No, it's just Golden Tate posterizing opponents. He had the second-highest score of any WR in the league this week with 25.50 points.
  • Do you put a LB or DB on him? You might have to put both on him if this continues. Antonio Gates scored 18.50 points to rank third among TEs in the league this week.

Toyota Roster Tune-up

  • The fact that you're reading this means you have internet connection. Unfortunately, that's one less thing to blame your loss on. Don't tell the Hall.
  • Could've started Philip Rivers, who underachieved, but still had more points than the starting QB with 30.20 against a projected 32.50.
  • Should have started Donte Moncrief, who underachieved, but still had the most points of any WR on the team with 14.50 against a projected 16.40.
  • Todd Gurley has now failed to reach his projection for three straight games. This week he scored 17.40 points versus a projected 23.11.
  • Michigan state was faced with 5 starters coming up empty in points.

What If

  • Doug's Wondrous Team would be 5-4 if they played Michigan state every week.
  • Doug's Wondrous Team would have beaten only two other teams besides Michigan state this week.
  • Were they resting their players for this week? Doug's Wondrous Team would have defeated Michigan state 240.74 - 109.55 had they played each other last week.
  • Doug's Wondrous Team would be 2-5 if they played the same schedule as Michigan state.
  • If Doug's Wondrous Team had played every team in the league each week, they would be 22-41.
  • Michigan state would have lost to every other team in the league this week.
  • If they played the same schedule as Doug's Wondrous Team, Michigan state would be 3-4.
  • If they played every team every week, Michigan state would be 22-41.

Game Notes

  • Luck has not been with Michigan state, as five of their seven losses have come when their opponent scores higher than their season average.
  • When the going gets tough, the tough are supposed to get going. However, Michigan state stalled out again and extended their losing streak to six games.
  • Michigan state had the league's lowest score of the week for the third time this season.
  • Doug's Wondrous Team won by scoring 180.08 points, their lowest winning score of the season.
  • With the big win, Doug's Wondrous Team has had all of their three wins come via blowout.
  • We don't condone cheating, but this group of wide receivers might want to spray Stickum on their gloves. The 0 total points by the WRs on Michigan state was their lowest WR output this season.
  • Just because Robert Horry has seven NBA championship rings, doesn't mean he's one of the greats. Despite being on the winning team, Devonta Freeman scored 21.00 points against a projected 27.96 and has now underachieved in four straight games.
  • Not going to name names, but some people here aren't pulling their weight. Forget it, Emmanuel Sanders needs to step it up! He scored 9.70 points against a projected 16.60 in the win, and has now scored below his projection in five straight games.
